Atithi, tum kab jaoge .....

And finally, I got a day off! Stomach always upsets me on a Monday. I was just getting ready for my office and was about to leave when a shooting pain made me retreat back home! Nevertheless, I thank my tummy for getting me a day off! All the melodrama of my stomach started on saturday, when my stomach rumbled for some time and then grumbled persistently about the discomfort. I had headed home early then. But little did I know that the weekend was waiting to unravel some untimely comedy of errors (errrr......should I say Murphy was enjoying at my expense?).....

I would say, I have met various kinds of people but have identified only a few for their nature. And I have come to realize, I am often offended by people who are insensitive idiots, whose insensitivity is born out of ignorance! Or, should I say, ignorance is no more a bliss in today’s world? Off late, I have been bugged by the fact that: Adjustment is never an easy thing to come in terms with! Be it with, whosoever!Still,trying to adjust with the word: Adjustment!!

Coming to the cruz of my rants,nowadays, whenever I hear the statement: Atithi Devo Bhava,I fly into a seething rage!Well here goes my tale of having unwelcome guests!!

There are two annoying clowns I have met recently, 2 childhood buddies of my FIL, who think my home is a “chai ka tapri” for them. They come on a Sunday and come as if they will never leave the place (come early in the morning and leave late)!First,I was considerate enough, thinking my FIL needed good company. Later I figured out, he needed good sleep which was being hampered by his good friends.In fact,there have been days,when he used to doze off to sleep and they used to sit in the hall and watch CID. Well,I am not sure if watching CID at my place is any different from watching CID at their own places in their own televisions! To add to all this,the voice of one of the persons is loud enough to be heard a few streets away!! So every Sunday which I get as a welcome break from my office, gets only busier and irritating all the more!!

And it happened this Sunday too, when I was unwell! My woes couldn’t get any worse when the trouble duo came and jested all day along rattling in loud pompous voice watching the CID on television. I already hated that series and now my hate for that series has only grown manifold ever since my Sunday naps have gone for a six. 60 year old people, behaving so childish! I know, people when approach old age, become children. But I had thought they were “childlike” children and not “childish”.

Well, just that I have to train my mind to speak out what it feels,I realized there shouldn’t be any harm in being rude.....because being rude to a few people doesn’t mean, we are wrong, but at times, that is the only language a few pests understand!!

Oh Mind, relax please!

Mind.....Mind......It is such a stallion! Cannot stop at anything.....Sometimes, I wonder what would be the condition of this world, if our body were as fast as mind? Well, no prizes for any guesses here..... Well so here I go with some of my random ramblings...... (of course you may read at your risk)....

Tits bits from the fine change in life!

Life after marriage has definitely been a challenge. The life before was never so hectic. The life after is never so simple (of course, “added responsibilities” on the lil shoulders). Nevertheless, I still enjoy the change......after all change is what remains permanent in life!

I think I should build a temple for my mother who has been a home maker all her life! Not just mother, but all the homemakers! House keeping business is the toughest job on earth! Anyone who dares to question it will face the wrath of this feline! Only when I have started to manage home and work simultaneously (I won’t say successfully), I have come to understand how much me and my dad have bugged my mom in my school days, by dirtying up the floor, throwing stuff here and there randomly and piling up clothes on bed. Those days a small scream from my mom regarding such indiscipline used to drive me crazy and I used to wonder, whatever happened that she has created so much fuss about! Now every unanswered question of yesterday is being answered so subtly and curtly by life!

And marriage, I have come to understand requires a lot of adjustment. Adjustment which is made up of 60% love and 40% understanding. Life before was definitely carefree because we never had to worry about the “responsibility” part. Post marriage, there are a lot of things that fill into the small beautiful world formed by the couple. Commitments towards family, commitment towards society, commitments towards self are not statements made just for the feel of the word commitment. To understand it takes a great deal of effort, specially the commitment towards self.

When I look at my parents, I gape in awe! Handling a brat like me would have been a terrible task for them. I was not the typical spoilt brat (being the single child), but I had my annoying levels of stubbornness which could transform even a peaceful Buddha into one seething in rage. The shiny gray hair on my mother’s head is a blatant evidence to the pain I had given her, just for doing my academics well. My husband keeps telling me to idolize his in-laws (my adorable parents) as role models for parenting..... Not that it is impossible, but it wont be an easy task though! :P

But lessons learnt are lessons imbibed! Hope the beautiful change in my life transforms me from an irresponsible child to a responsible lady 
