Meaning

As it happened, I was going on and on about some random happenings with a friend on phone, when suddenly we started talking about work. I don't know where it came from but I told him, that I am working and happily so because I think it is meaningful work. Different people have different notions about their work. Some work for the pure pleasure for money, some to pass their time, some because its fashionable and some simply because they derive meaning out of it. I don't know how many people will concur with me but I strongly believe that without value, without meaning there is no point. And this philosophy of mine, goes beyond work. Just to give an example, a relationship is beautiful and fulfiling, till the time each individual adds meaning to it. The day there is no exchange of thoughts and I mean the value adding thoughts or feelings, that day a relationship should end.

I might be stretching this a bit too far but that's what I believe in. Meaning or nothing.

Memories live forever..

Dear ones come and just go by
Never will they return howsoever we may try
When they leave they bring so many tears
For we had a relationship strengthened over years
What remians are impressions on the heart
In a short while we are miles apart
The distance may be due to death or anger
But everything has ended only in a whimper
For sometime we go insane
Mind is full of sorrow and pain
All this doesnt bring an end to life
We have to live and constantly strive
Why had they come if they had to go
Just to impart love for a day or so
People die and relationships end
We are left with tears to shed
Deep inside there remains a gap
Which gradually heals in time's lap
We pick up the broken pieces & start anew
Sorrow goes and there is joyness new
For there are memories to cherish both sweet & sour
Of all those happy moments and hours..

एक शेर

पास तुम हो,
पास तेरे मैं भी हूँ
पर ऐसा कुछ भी नही
जो तेरे पास का एहसास हो

Of work and bosses!

Last Sunday was a day to connect, connect with the batch mates from MDI, all of whom have landed in this city, this city of dreams and well jobs. So the plan was all complete, with marathon mails from all quarters, we zeroed on the venue and time. I reached there to find a couple of my friends already waiting. It was sooo good to see them again, felt like we were back in college, the place where we have undoubtedly spent two of our most beautiful years. After the usual rounds of hugs and handshakes it was time for some serious discussion.

We started one by one narrating, criticizing, mocking and praising (rarely though) our respective jobs and bosses. It was in a way homecoming to be able to talk so candidly about life and associated stuff with people you know and have lived with. But in a way it was different because our issues have changed. In college life revolved around CGPA, projects and picking proffs, now its about work and bosses. The strange part is that the issues might be different, the city might have changed but what remains same and definitely unmatched is an evening well spent with friends.

By the way if I haven't mentioned the discussions also usually wander towards marriage. With a couple of them either getting engaged or married, it seems like there is a naked sword hanging on every one's head, it just remains to be seen that who gets caught into the trap first and who can dance away to glory till the last.

That's all for now. Signing off with a smile :)

P.S. - The guys haven't changed, they still look exactly the same, dishevelled I mean
The girls for sure look more elegant and prettier than before.
