I realized I could not stay away from home ( read : Mom ) on a long-term basis.

 So I came home after some sweet twist in my fairy-tale ( read : my life ). The only difference being I go to an office instead of college.

I usually commute by three-wheelers ( read : autorickshaw aka auto). Its a 13 kilometre stretch from home to office and I change autos thrice. Before you calculate how long I travel, let me tell you - a maximum of 40 minutes ( Awesome by any standards :D :P ).

My first stop is at a place 8 minutes away from my home. Auto No. 1. A two minute ride and a measly 3 bucks ( INR 3) is enough. Then comes crossing a large square. It can take upto 5 minutes to cross that damn road. Welcome to National Highway ! An added bonus, it is under expansion. So you get free pollution and dust as well. Auto No.2. It won't budge until there are 5 passengers. You might miss a meeting/appraisal/juicy gossip ( :P ), the "Auto Bhaina" does not care. A three kilometer stretch…


I need a painter.
*pause* *grin*
Do not grin like that. I know what you are thinking.
What was I thinking ?
About  painting, Titanic 3D and you-know-what.
Ah ! You are so perfect at reading my mind.
You doubt it ?
No, I’m proud of you. I’m lucky to have you.
You don’t have me. I’m still thinking, remember ?
Well, if you keep thinking all your life about me, it is fine by me.
Shut up !
Is that your favourite word ?
No. It is my way of expressing disgust.
So what is your way of displaying a few other  better emotions ?
What do you mean ?
You know what I mean. Remember ?
Shut up !
By the way, you said you needed a painter. I paint well.
Really ?
Then come to my place tomorrow at 10 in the morning .
Really ?
Really. Sharp at 10. I’ll tell you what needs to be done.
Seriously ?  You are that particular ?
Yes. When it comes to painting my house, I’m very particular about colours.
Gosh ! I thought it was something else.
I knew what you thought of.
Really ?
Yes, you need to read  my thoughts perfectly. Only…


No matter what, never give up your dreams. 

If  you can dream and not make dreams your master

You dream, therefore you are.

Dreaming makes life worthwhile.

Live your dream.
