It is so convenient and easy for people to apologize and then act as if it was the noblest of the deeds ever done! The damage caused to the affected party is supposedly nothing as compared to the display of humility by the offender. The ‘accused’ need not stop and reflect on his actions. He/She has to only start apologizing profusely till the waves of sympathy are in their favor and the attention shifts from the deed to the ‘helplessness’ of the doer. At the end of it, things sort out on their own. The accused becomes the seeker of sympathy, the victim seeks way out of the chaos. And all ends well ..
So now he is apologizing! (And I thought it was just a drunken banter.)
I have always been a nomad at heart – never stayed at one place for long time. My mother wasn’t too happy with it and blamed the mole on my left foot for this restlessness of mine. After marriage though, things settled down and my nomadic lifestyle was brought to a halt. I enjoyed that stillness for a while but then it started to bother me. I started finding excuses to go out and travel. Dew and I often sit and discuss about abandoning our current career paths and relocating to the hills, to explore,and earn just enough for survival. Well! we both know and understand that it is nothing but a daydream – good only while it stays that way!
And this brings me to the reason why I am actually blogging about it!
I have become lazy these days. Especially on weekends. I love to just stay at home and do nothing, which is fine at times.. But of late, it has become a norm – have breakfast – sleep – have lunch – sleep – have tea – go out for some time – have dinner – sleep! Yeah it is as pathetic as that! I blamed it on the need of my body to catch up on some sleep. But in my heart I knew the truth. And the guilt was getting too much to bear. So I make a promise to myself now – to be up and on my feet and get that damned mole back in action!
(or my life may be)
Diya introducing me to her friend at school – ‘Neha, this is my mother. She looks like a princess. Doesn’t she? ‘
Thank You everyone who fought for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela to be renamed as Goliyon ki raasleela – Ram Leela..
(Still banging my head on the wall!!)
Diya has two new favs these days.
She loves dancing on these two songs. When asked what she wanted for her birthday, her reply was spontaneous:
1. The lehanga which Madhuri wears in Song1
2. The girls dancing in the background!
1st one – I can try and get for her.
2nd – No clue!!!
– When instead of finding out where all the tax money goes, a ‘concerned’ citizen decides to file a PIL to check non Karntataka vehicles on the road!!!
Wouldn’t it make more sense to just find out why the condition of our roads and basic infrastructure not improving (infact, it is getting worse by the day), instead of wasting time and money to fuel regional animosity amongst people?
I sometimes just don’t get it! Why do people take frivolous things soo seriously and serious issues so lightly??!!
Diya discovered her front tooth to be slightly shaky, and has been dancing ever since! For her, it is something to feel proud of
And I am just relishing the expression of that joy!
(And I go back to an old post to look at her first tooth )
