18th April

12:45am – Happy with day’s work, and also with things lined up for tomorrow, I set an alarm for 6:00am and go to sleep

5:50am – Wake up to check why hasn’t alarm rang till now :). Realizing that there is some more time left, I peacefully doze off again

6:00am – I snooze alarm and continue sleeping

6:12am – I think I heard my phone ring again, this time to tell me that I have received a SMS, but I continue sleeping

6:30am – I hear some noises which tell me that mom has begun her day in kitchen. I finally decide to wake up

6:35am – I check that SMS, a friend has asked to join for a walk in VRCE campus, I cannot say NO. I reply back with “see you at library at 7” and get ready for it

7:00am – Meet this friend after many months, a great senior whom I have always looked up to for advice when life puzzles me the most. No one has a more clear and structured thought for life than this guy

7:05am – After getting nostalgic about reading room, and time spent there, we quickly come out of it, and walk towards canteen

7:06am – 8:30am – As we walk around the campus, we have a hearty talk about my business, his job, and life in general. As always, his advice clears a lot of dark, and I feel I have a better clarity of what should come to me in my life, and what am I going to give back in return. I feel good about myself, at times its good to accept that you are faltering and losing sense of direction, and that you need help. And I know where to find it 🙂

8:30am – Happy with the clarity, we move to Coffee House at Dharampeth for a quick bite. Though we both have had much better stuff elsewhere, filter coffee, egg curry-parotha and cutlet at coffee house taste great again

9:00am – I be a silent company for friend’s sutta, take final pieces of advice from him, and say bye. On the way, I pick up Indian Express newspaper

9:15am – Back home, mom has started FM radio which is playing some good music. I take bath

9:30am – I switch on TV, and get to see following songs in that order

  1. Na Jaane Mere Dil Ko kya Ho gaya, Abhi tha yahi, abhi kho gaya – DDLJ
  2. Kabhi Kabhi Aditi – Jaane tu ya jaane na
  3. Agar mai kahu – Lakshya
  4. Teri Ore – Singh is King
  5. Bakhuda tumhi ho – Kismat Konnection
  6. Pahla Nasha – Jo Jeeta Woh Sikandar
  7. Baawre – Luck By Chance

As I surf channels, get to see faces of Kajol, Preity Zinta, Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor and Soha Ali Khan.

10:10am – I switch off TV, skim through the newspaper, and find the horoscope section. My sun-sign says – “It’s all too easy to look on the gloomy side and magnify your problems, but if you cultivate such qualities as enthusiasm and optimism, and then go all out to pamper yourself, you will lift your spirits and do yourself a power of good”.

10:10am – I get back on day’s work. Cannot have a better start for the day! Need to make most of it now.
