Make the most of it...Enjoy it !!!




I was in high spirits coming back from work on Friday evening. I decided to prepare ‘kheer’ to mark the start of weekend. On my way home, I bought a packet of milk; and some raisins (I just love raisins) for a more delicious serving. After reaching; I switched on the music, emptied the milk in a pan and put it to boil. I splashed some water on my eyes to relax myself. The mood was setting in for a lovely weekend. My craving for ‘kheer’ had also intensified.

As I crossed the mirror, something stopped me. I looked myself……………I could see the reflection of my entire life………….each year, each day, each moment of my life that had passed. Tears, pain, happiness, smiles, success, trouble……….every lost memory came alive. Millions of thoughts rushed to my mind….somehow I was not happy with the life I had lived …….I Regretted for some of the things I had done……….and some others which I should have done but I hadn’t…………..Regrets over something spoken and something unspoken………wished that I could change certain things and times.

‘Ah, the milk…..’ I completely forgot. I rushed to the kitchen……..half of it was already spilled. I was numb. ‘Come on….move……..at least don’t waste the rest of it’…….this surge of thought hurried me to turn off the burner. At that point, I was not disappointed instead I felt elated, as that very thought clicked something…………"At least don’t waste the rest of it (life)".No point crying over the split milk………No point regretting for what has already happened.

Only a glass of milk was left, I thought of making the best of it; simultaneously decided to make the most of my remaining life, as well. Few years later, looking again into the mirror, I don’t want any regrets……….. I would like to see my life lived to its fullest………with no ‘possible desire’ left unfulfilled……..with no ‘right word’ left unspoken….with no ‘wildest craziest thing’ left untried…….with no ‘dream’ left dissuaded.

I chilled the milk; and with a yummy mango, prepared a cool sweet shake. Added a scoop of ice cream with chocolate chips………dropped some nuts and raisins over it. My perfect serving was ready. I enjoyed every bite and sip of it……..declaring the sweet start of weekend

Wonders of Rain !!!


It was a Saturday morning; I was woken up by thunder clouds. Getting up from my bed, I slowly opened my eyes and moved towards the window. It was drizzling outside………..’Beautiful’ was the first word I uttered that morning.

Watching the rain drops, my thoughts wandered …………I felt these drops were the tears. Something inside me cried out…….Let it rain so heavily, let it pour down, let it wash away all the pain of my heart, let everything be clear, clean, fresh and new inside me. Lightning hit the sky and the rain started dancing, thumping its feet on the ground. I closed my eyes; I sensed the rain drops slowly finding way to my heart – drenching it with beautiful emotions, feelings and thoughts. All wounds were healed….everything inside repaired.. I felt renewed…….no part of my life was left dried. As I looked out, every bit of nature was afresh, green and lovely. The cool breeze perfumed my morning. I stepped out and danced with the ‘Rain’!!!

Office Office

What could be a happy ending of a college life? The traditional answer is -Getting a good job, probably. I believe, it's a beginning of new phase of life. Things change - some for good and some for bad.

I remember my first day at my first job. Lots of excitement..... butterflies in stomach, little fear, happiness, millions of imaginations in mind. Looking back, i feel it was a nice first experience......entering a completely new territory.....with new people around...totally different atmosphere compared to my college/school.

I have understood the 'office' better with time. It is a kind of mini life. 'Life' within 'Life'. Like Life, here also i have to give my best shot. As it is said, "Don't take life too seriously or you won't be able to enjoy it". The same applies to office. You should not be too emotional about it. Stepping inside my home in the evening, i tell myself - leave the office behind the door. At times, you have to struggle at your workplace, you don't always get the credit equal to your work. So is 'life', you don't get back as much as you give.

I have learnt to laugh over certain unavoidable situations at my workplace.......am able find some humor in every bit of it....People arguing with each other when all of them are trying to prove the same point....... Listening to certain irritating fellows, as some of them happen to be your seniors..........meetings which end without any conclusion....

Without doubt, i love the brainstroming sessions and knowlegde sharing with learned collegues. Team work is always a fun.....every little achievement excites me.....i feel alive. I completely enjoy the laughter sessions......Chit Chats in my 'All Girls Group'......Lunch breaks......Tea Clubs......bitching about the management....

Oh..but sometimes i wish i could bunk the office just like the college classes.

Over the period of time, i have realized that all-in-all office is not that bad, though i desperately wait for weekends :-)

For me, the Mantra for a good office life is -
Take it Easy !!!
Do your part of duty well !!!
Enjoy !!!
Love it !!!
