That thing called Miss-ing..

Its nice to come back to a good place.. Isn't it?.. I visited my sweet home after a gap of about 3 months during the Durga Puja and it felt like heaven.. Literally.. All those things which seemed pretty ordinary when I used to live there, seemed very special.. I felt as if I was in a palace.. specially my people.. I missed them so much over the past 3months that when everything and everyone came back to me I was out of emotions.. a total blank.. I believe when we feel something very intensely, the brain refuses to generate the right actions.. There occurs a momentary lapse of reason.. The movie scenes loose validity and you realize that life is not about expressing how much you love my singing a song in the middle of a botanical garden and dancing to the tune with 37 co-dancers.. The brain gets numb when it feels intense pain, or love, or anything.. So nothing I had imagined happened.. I had thought that I will break into tears after seeing them in the airport and so will they, but a daily soap did not follow.. They were happy and I was happy.. too happy to cry.. and the one week of my stay there was not enough to get me off this feeling..
well coming back to the point...
We are leaving Neyveli next week and there is an unsaid emotion in everybody including me.. just in my case the emotion is  not untyped.. well.. I accept that I will miss Neyveli.. The thing  or the factor that makes it so hard to express this simple thing is we, ourselves.. We had hated this place right from its first sight.. Even though it was 11:30 in the night.. even though there was nothing bad in it, but still, Neyveli bore all our frustration and anger of going so far away from family.. We all had our own reasons to hate this place.. Some did not like the people, some could not accept the idea of attending a college once again.. some cursed the food, some faced problems with their flush in the latrine and all their anger were thrown at Neyveli.. and it silently bore all our anger..
But it did not take much time to tune ourselves into this city and soon we find it easier to live here and YENJOY..
you never know how a thing can touch you or attach you to itself.. human nature makes us hate it based on the first impression but the thing still remains and it works silently to imbue itself to the very existence of mankind till the point when separation becomes painful..
will miss neyveli..

Confessions of a Lazy Ass

With a serious hope that the newly designed template will draw my own interest towards my own blog, I start writing this piece.. Dunno how far will this go...
Sometimes when I walk back from the main market with Ketan to our guest house, and we both ponder about the things that has happened to us over this short period of time, I feel amazed.. A boy who hadn't even stepped out of the circle with a parents-decided radius, was roaming the streets of a remote area, a place never heard or thought about.. Gujarat, Neyveli, Puducherry, Ooty, Hogenakkal, Bangaluru... I can now proudly say, I have been to places this all time.. and it feels like I've been doing this for a long time.. 
Well.. for those who care to know, or by mistake has reached this place (my untouched blog), for your information, I am in a place called Neyveli.. Its in Tamil Nadu.. 4 hours from Chennai.. And I have been here since September.. 
The blogging is gone.. And the credit goes to Facebook.. All that comes to my mind.. (he he... all that).. goes to the status updates.. Now who will care to open another tab.. another website.. and log in once again... and then type a full big post.. then care for the grammar and the spellings..??.. a BIG task.. I did not.. I preferred the easier one.. so .. whatever pours, sours facebook..
I have got a new companion.. and let me tell you, she ( i prefer calling it a she) gets a huge amount of attention.. I just cannot get over her.. She keeps me busy all the time and doesn't even let me sleep at night.. Mr. Dell got me mine.. :).. I waste my time with pride.. I indulge in non-sense with the minimum possible guilt..
I will be in Delhi for the whole of next month.. We are leaving Neyveli on 3rd November for another training at Faridabad from 8th.. So very much looking forward to it.. and also looking forward to some more posts.. 
good bye..
