Travel Journals

There's something about travels. After reading this by Vipul, I took a trip down the memory lane.

I aint someone who enjoys traveling. Or so I thought. It turned out to be one of the thousand things which I think I dont like and end up doing. Shows how warped my sense of my own liking & disliking is :). I discover that I dont like lengthy commuting...which am sure most of us dont.

Coming back to the point, there is something about traveling & journeys. I've been to just 3 places wherein we just backpacked and left. Agra, Mussorie & Manali. There's this suspended feeling...you know...you are in a place where nobody knows you...every moment is a discovery...you try to hold on your own when your being actually wants to get lost amidst the unknown crowds...you feel so...fulfilled. The feeling makes you realise there's so much more to life than office & home drudgery. It's been close to 6 months since my last travel...but I can still recall how I felt when I looked up into the skies and found snow capped hills, clouds bellowing, birds frolicking, the Sun dull and sense of serenity about the whole scene.

On one such trip to Mussorie, the highway was closed due to some reason and all cars had to take a bypass. This bypass went through a hamlet which had never seen such a caravan before. The roads(?) were bad, but the air in that village..musty...laid back...thatched roofs...hens & goats running around...people peeking out of windows...curious looks....it was 7 am...and yet the whole place looked like it could afford a slumber of couple of more hours. At such times, you just feel like standing still and soaking the whole atmosphere in. It helps you gain that "tehraav" in your self which is like a river....flowing full speed downstream...no controls...no checks.

Ummm....I like traveling :)...I could do with some more of such memories :). Ah...just one more wish if my God could fulfill....get me this! :)

As it is

And so the day begins…total misalignment. Assuming today is Thursday, when it actually is Friday…I messed up couple of meetings. And what’s worse…I missed my Friday fast as well.

What’s going on?

Sigh.

Today…I reacted to a bad news in a very bad manner….I should learn to control my emotions.
