a pig's life...

it sure feels great to wake up in the morning with a definite sense of purpose to the day. yes, it is a good thing to be certain about your life. :) so, today was a big day in terms of "i wanna do this and this and this". and in the end i ended up doing pretty much nothing and still be pretty much content...

"staying indoors and wasting time online and chowing down on Fresh Strawberry & Cream Cake' is pretty satisfying! i'm finding my own path to Nirvana!"

...my Dodo is gone! :'( di flew back to Dubai last night with my dodo. now i don't know what to do. there is no one to yelp and meow and chatter and make monkey sounds and say "mamu mamu" early in the morning. no one to come to me and say, "उठा उठा" (pick me up, ooo pick me up), whenever i say "गुन्दी" (gundi). *sigh. the only consolation is that in the last month or so i have managed to inculcate and encourage enough mischievousness in my dodo to give di a headache back in Dubai. my nice shall do me proud. :)

Ahmedabad international airport is insane. especially at 2 am. someone should sue the AAI for putting passengers to such lengths of inconvenience and harassment.

in other things, i shall be going back to Baroda on sunday. it's been over a month since i've managed to keep my arse in that town. my department head is pretty chilled and couldn't care less about my absence. i like him. my friends on the contrary are not. my flat mate is irked that there is no one to do the dishes past midnight in my absence. but i needed this break. i needed to be away from Baroda for a while. i needed a different perspective towards things. i needed to connect with my extended family. i needed to appreciate what i had and not worry about all that i did not. i needed to realize that life is good. even though the "i wish it could be like this" thoughts about certain things and people are seemingly so perfect that why they are not so is absolutely illogical; and the truth is they are not happening so. i needed to remind myself that wishful thinking and hoping despite all odds is the way to live life. now i need to go back to Baroda. to face life again as it is.

today i didn't feel like taking a bath. i wanted to remain a pig today. today was my pigu day. but i was forced to take a bath. Anu di threatened me with severe consequences (i.e. holding my Fresh Strawberry and Cream Cake over the dustbin and threatening to throw it in) unless i took a bath. so i finally took a bath. now i am no longer a pig.

हम सूवर ना रहे , हमारा सूव्र्पना धुल गया
(i am no longer a pig, my piguness got washed away)
गर्म पानी से धुलके हम सूवर से इंसान बन गए
(i have become a human from a pig after getting washed in warm water)
मगर फीर सूवर बनने की आष अब भी हमारे दील में है
(but i still have the hope of being a pig someday in my heart)

...don't ask. i am in a weird mood. just laugh at my stupidity and laziness and forget about it ASAP.

talking of pigs, here's some pearly wisdom for all.

  • so much for all the temptations in my life! i always knew that someone was in fact out to get me!


  • and ahem!

"cheers!"
