It's A New Day, It's A New Start...

Almost a month gone and still I am somehow unable to comprehend the difference between being in India and being here. Being amidst i-flex colleagues and many more Indians, it seems pretty much like home. There are even a lot of Tamilians here, though with my accent and way of speaking, they do doubt whether I am real or a fake Tamilian :) People here say that I don't look like a South Indian and instead look like a pucca Mumbaikar.

I miss Mumbai a lot. Watching Munnabhai, watching other movies set in Mumbai, I am reminded of those kopchas and small time restaurants that I used to go into not so long back. Marine drive, where I used to sit on the parapet with friends and enjoy the breeze till late nights :)

After the initial enthusiasm of keeping a clean home and being organized, I now give higher priority to getting as much sleep as possible :) I have also borrowed "Made in America" by Sam Walton and purchased "Good to Great" by Jim Collins. I am almost through with "Made in America" and will finish it tonight.

I call home every day and it feels great to be speaking to the people I love the most in this world. Somehow, though there is also a heavy weight on my heart about the future, given the circumstances that have been prevalant. I also wonder why unlike almost everyone else, I seem to value people, life with them and their presence in my life only after they are far away from me.

Que sera sera - whatever will be will be...

In times of illogical thinking, downcast minds or loss of hope... thats where I believe my belief in HIM takes me through. I am not overtly religious, not overtly ritualistic, but yet my belief in Swamigal is strong and that is the belief that I shall carry forever.

Song For Tonight

My Father's Eyes - Eric Clapton

This entire week, this song has played in my head and I just had to listen to it somehow. The video is not Eric Clapton's, but it was the best and full song that I got, so I have put it up.

Final words: It's lovely to see friends fall in love and well... I am very happy hearing what I heard today :)
