So-li-dude

Yippeee… I’m so lucky! My mamma loves me SOOOO much…

Nope, I didn’t realize this now, I’ve always known it. And I know Mother’s Day is a long time away. It’s just that there are these times when you really feel blessed and happy, and want to shout it out loud... My mum’s a sweetheart, fellas. (As I’ve told you a zillion times before.) Whatta bundle of energy and affection! I really admire her… And I pray she always stays happy and cheerful. She certainly deserves to…

Guess what, I saw God in my dreams today. Live. I held him and it was the most magnificent thing I’ve ever experienced. For some reason I thought he was Krishna; he was resting in the basement of the Balaji temple at Tirupati as quite a few of us devotees landed there to take his darshana. He saw us and got up, and like a celebrity came up close to the crowd so that we could touch and worship him. Greedy baby that I am, I just held his face and refused to let go for almost 3 minutes! And he stood… waiting for me to let go… So sweet!!

Oh, and wonder of wonders, Jesus Christ was also resting with his followers in an adjoining room. This is what is called secularism in the true sense of the word. Just like an Italian lady relinquishes the Prime Minister’s seat to a Sikh who is sworn in by a Muslim President. That’s India for you…

I wish I could spare more time to write to you. You must be kinda bored or maybe disappointed with the fact that I post forwarded mails on my blog so often these days. I can’t help it, ya. I don’t have a comp/lappie at home, and when I’m at work I hardly have time to use the desktop to type in my US MBA application essays, let alone an entire blog article. The training is going well, but I’m very stressed because the students didn’t perform too well on a mock interview that we conducted last week. The target is to get 80% of the 11 candidates hired on Saturday; no piece of cake sirree!

I’m quite worried about this aim, and I sometimes find it difficult to sleep at night. The staying awake wouldn’t have bothered me much if I did not have to wake up early the next day. Unfortunately, I have to get up before 7 am everyday in order to be at work by 8.30, and believe me it’s such a bother. Compound that with erratic students who don’t seem to be putting in enough effort, and it’s enough to drive one insane…

(My current Wipro Academy batch is good, if not excellent... And what further endears them to me is that most of them are either cute or have a terrific sense of humor, or they get lip-smacking chicken for me... Chicken Biryani the day before, Chicken Chilly again today... Yumm!)

True, I get off work by 5.30, but I’d rather work till sunset than begin at sunrise. Nothing do I miss as much in my daily routine as I do sleeping till late. I’ve always been a night owl; you can keep me awake all night, but dare you make the slightest noise that could wake me up before 10 am! The worst thing about me (or maybe the best, depending on what circumstances demand), is that I'm a very light sleeper. I tend to wake up at the drop of a pin, and then I have trouble going back to sleep. Matters are further complicated by my family, the majority of whom are early risers and tremendous noise makers. Repeated requests to shut the door and lower the volume are ineffective, and I find myself cribbing and snapping at everybody around me. Life!!!

The mossssst maddening aspect is that any trivial thing is enough to drive my sleep away. In my modeling days, I couldn't sleep well before an important photo shoot, and the more I worried about dark circles the next morning, the farther Nindiya-Rani went... Even today, when a crush buzzes, or when I'm awaiting some news, I stay awake all night, and end up cranky and irritated. An afternoon siesta is no option since the time I started working, so I just have to wait for 18 hours before I can say hullo to my pillow again...

“So much ado about sleep?” you must be wondering… But people, trust me, there’s nothing like good sleep in this world… Especially when it’s raining hard outside and everything’s dark at midday(like it was 3 days ago in Pune), the cold wind’s howling, and you’re warm and cozily sprawled between the sheets. Bliss…

And then you wake up at leisure and have a steaming hot cuppa ginger tea served to you in bed… Nothing less than an orgasm!

But for now, work’s calling… Take care, lads and lasses… Hope to see you soon!

@ Vishal - where u been man?? Nope, I don't feel like killing them, but I sure would like to kick and spank a few :-P

@ Ani - yep, trying new methods and some of it is working... the trouble is every student is different, and it's a challenge to train 12 of them at the same time in as less as 9 days... Hoping for the best!
