With a tick tock in the clock, my eyes opened at 6:45 AM. Thoughts rushed in to the brain making an itinerary for the day. But Brain decided to sleep for next few more minutes. It was a Tuesday morning and the schedule was like any other business days. Day get started, food was packed, and I headed to office. On the way, I keep myself busy going through the recent news, Facebook feeds and music (of course). The news gives me a thought that half of the country’s population has yet not evolved from the stone age era. Some goons or as they say “Followers” of a tricky Baba has created violence in one part of the country, with a toll of more than 40 lives. A suspicious game “The Blue Whale Challenge” is trapping the teenagers and abetting them for suicide. Triple talaq petitioner’s child gone missing, new verdict by apex court on marital rape.There were numerous such news I wanted to read thoroughly to understand Is the society I am leaving really so messed up. But, i had tilted the entrance gate of my work bay and it was time for interaction with my Japanese and Korean clients. As the clocked moved, more foot falls started on the floor.
Suddenly an email arrived which hold my attention. I double read the sender’s name to be sure on the thought which had just arrived in my mind. And unfortunately, it was true. One of my favorite colleague was moving on. Not just because he received a better offer from somewhere, but with the fact that he was hurt deep inside with some management’s decisions. Well, corporate politics, it is indispensable in any organization. Where there are people, there will be agreements and disagreements. Few win, few accommodate, few succumbs. Its YOU who have to choose for yourself. In the adieu ceremony I got a luck to meet few of my old colleagues with whom I am friends as well. Its been a journey of more than thirty months, but nothing has changed except our seating locations.
Anyways, as the day moved forward, I got indulged in my work and some secret talks over Whatsapp (with a identity not to be revealed at this moment :p). I was done with exhaustive works and headed back to my home. Again same habit which i follow in the morning. This time, i was reading people’s comments over the incidents i just mentioned above. Some sounded sensible and were trollers, for some I can say what the hell are you doing on this planet, you better go to Jupiter and spread your garbage there.
After reaching back to my flat, again i was following my routine. Dinner preparation, phone call with my family members. When You are a young girl, living away from home, family gives you a comfort and some happy moments, though at times it turns out to be bit unhappy (with any XYZ reason).
While going off to sleep, i take a flashback of entire day and realize one thing, one common thing, which i notice daily, every thing is defined, you just have to select and follow.
Its you who define yourself. Be YOU, always 🙂
