Yesterday, I took my mom to Odaiba (Tokyo Bay) for a visit. We took a cruise, shopped, ate at a French Cafe and shopped some more :) I also met up with Tetra san, who works in the Indonesian Embassy in Tokyo. He was an acquaintance I made during my short-lived Japanese class visits :)
While walking along the decks along Tokyo Bay, I suddenly remembered that it was standing here and while admiring the beauty of the sights, that I called home one day in February and while speaking to Mom, decided that somehow I would get her here.
As true as the world is round, I made my mom's and my dream come true. This is one of the small personal victories in life for me.
After working in Tokyo, I can say for sure, this is the first of many more :) Shinsei does that to people Iv heard :)
P.S: I bought Bose Speakers for my laptop today and boy!!! They are brilliant! Every note, every nuance is crystal clear... Wheeeeeeeeeeee :)

Tonight, I boarded the train home from Meguro station. Before the doors close, there is an announcement made over the public intercom system. Just before the announcement happened, a couple came walking. Slightly older (maybe in their mid 30s) and not married. Hand in hand they walked till the door of the train. She got in. He stayed back at the station. The door had still not closed. He never said a word to her and she never said a word to him. Not a goodbye, not a smile. He stayed watching her. He was fidgeting, trying to fan himself in this heat. Still, not a word. Not a goodbye. The announcement came and the doors closed. He kept looking at her. The train started moving. He waved goodbye. Not a word still. Quietly, he walked back.

This article summarises what I have been feeling for the past few days. Heres a man, who commited mistakes in his past and is paying for them now. Probably it is fair that one is paying for ones mistakes, but lets hope that there is redemption at the end of this, because ultimately, it is the intrinsic quality of a person that is important and which, for me determines the good/bad/ugly side to someone.
Sanjay Dutt, Im rooting for you buddy.
