Life on a Fastrack

Once upon a time I used to think of some day in the distant future where I might have to live a life that I am living right now … But looks like the life is in a hurry to fulfill “few” thoughts of mine …

Many unprecedented things happen in life and this happens to be one of them …I am staying alone at my uncle’s place … The alarm clock greets me a good day every morning … The lock of the door bids me goodbye when I leave for office …

Then I become a part of the crowd … Jumping from taxi to bus to local whatever the case might be ..Just another face amongst the millions running around to secure their share of bread …

Then I reach Fort … The magnificent building of DBS welcomes me with full heart, as it does to every one who constitutes it … There I somehow manage to find s few recognized faces … The faces of people I met two days back … Few interns, few seniors and of course my mentor …

My system, my work desk, my bag and my chair … They constitute my life out there from 9 to 6 … The day passes by and leaves back a lot of things … Incidents … Learning … And most importantly, Experience …

Then at 6 I leave the place … Right now, unlike most of the working professionals, I am not too excited that the day’s work is done … Neither am I too depressed to leave the place … Things have to sink in a bit I believe … Won’t go into the technicalities of my project … I am just listing down the superficial things …

What’s next??/ … Nothing but a very empathizing Arabian Sea .. Some time spent at Marine Drive in the evening … introspection … memories revisited … plans and forecasts made … Questions ask to oneself … And then a walk back to the home … Expecting nothing … Regretting nothing … And celebrating nothing …

The same old lock welcomes me back … The refrigerator appears very kind to offer me to gulp something down … The bed all very cozy to allow me to settle myself into it … The night prepared to give me a goodnight hug … The dreams ready to give an attempt to fill the hollowness to some extent … And ???

And the alarm clock ready to be trained for the morning call. And the cycle continues.

As I said … It still has to sink in … Something external is playing it’s part amidst all this … And that too very smartly … I need to track it down very soon … And eliminate it very soon…

Signing Off …

  2. Welcome to the corporate world 🙂

    Trust me things will onyl improve, the intial days of job are always boring!

    That said, you are working in a glamorous area of Mumbai, I had my office in Colaba for few months and I still miss the vibrancy & old world charm of the place!

    BTW Welcome to Mumbai 🙂

    • Thnx Smita 😉

      It’s only internship you see … And yes Mumbai is sinking in slowly but surely … I am sure the work will sink in too once it gets a bit hectic 😀 … Fingers crossed 🙂

  3. staying alone has its own perks.. trust me, it is lot of fun to stay alone for sometime (after some months, you do tend to get bored).. but the freedom that you get is great 🙂
