I've Realised

.. that in an industrialised civilsation where you crib about rising fuel prices damaging your stock portfolio, an old man will still cycle you around Hazratganj in Lucknow at a constant rate of Rs. 20 only because you will not pay him more.

.. that some people try really hard. They sometimes even get what they tried for. But I will never know whether I despise them for trying or for actually getting it.

.. that managers can survive by only impressing or die trying. All the highs of your life are reduced to bullet points on your CV.

.. that a desert cooler is nothing but a big fan with water droplets being sprinkled from behind.

.. that sometimes the annoying pestering of your parents is all you want and need.

.. that somehow hostel life as a 24 year old is simply not the same as compared to when you were 19.

.. that I've left clothes to soak in the bucket for more than a day.. and they don't smell too good.

.. that come what may, we'll always be L.

Totally agree with this - "that somehow hostel life as a 24 year old is simply not the same as compared to when you were 19."

Did you find a Bodhi tree in Lucknow? Or are you high on the Biryani?

@smokin joe: Thats taken for granted.. bring on the ledger baby!

@vandana: neither. But thanks for reminding me that I haven't had Lucknowi Biryani yet.

that bit about managers was uncalled for...however, I do concur.
