Hmmm...first jab at blogs??? wondering why the procrastination in adapting them to capture the flow of thoughts??no worries..the start is important and everything will roll...where is the begining???
The wet afternoon on 19 Aug at King Koti hospital?? the dawn of 14 Aug when a fresh grad took a flight to the land of oppurtunites??today working backwords??
Good 'The land of Oppurtunites' is apt and there begins the soujourn (will complete 6 years of this sojourn on Aug 14)...Took the Air-india flight from Hyd to Phila via the city then called Bombay, with an intention to never return back except for brief vacations every couple of years...surprisingly, it took no more than 2 days to decide it is indeed a sojourn to the 'Land of Oppurtunity'. Stuck to the guns till date but apprehensive about holding the fort after the scheduled transition in dec'05.

Last Oct trip to hyd was full of surprises, with an equal measure of pleasant and embarassing ones. Prioritizing the pleasant first, it would be redundant to state " things have changed a lot in Hyd". Gone are the days of galli cricket, golilu, lingoccha and landori and kids are occupied with pokemons or the snow worlds. A closer look under the covers revealed the old hyerabadi culture "ghar kane gup chup bandi", " galli mula meedha irani chai cafe" or the "Tank bund pe TPgiri". It was neither nostalgic nor sentimental but a hydbadi will appreciate what these mean...On the embarassing note, ventured into unchartered territories owing to parental obligations. Oppurtune decision on the issue averted a fiasco lifting up spirits of all the folks, specifically my parents. This and the events following it set the transition to dec. Itsn't true that I'm kind of wary about the transition but definitely apprehensive about isolation from camaraderie might lead to solitude. Also, the transition marks the end of individualism and fosters togetherness.
The earlier perception of 'a sojourn to Land of oppurtunites' may/may-not hold good as it will either be super imposed by the better-half's perception or will super-impose the better-halfs perception or will settle on a common ground...The transition is inevitable and that puts me in a catch-22 situation...apun ki basha mein " kya kare kya na kare..."

Current Mood: Confused
Current Music: Rangeela
