Chat with ………………

Sometimes office is boring…and sometimes office is very boring…what’s the difference? Well a lot actually! When office is boring you check out some sites (good ones I mean), read few blogs by some famous and some not so famous ones, browse through some picture updates on Facebook or peep into some friend’s profile who is equally boring and you switch back to the home page ASAP, ping the moment you see a familiar name online and say Hi but since you have already spoken to that friend a day before so there is nothing much to share and you end up asking trivial stuffs like “had lunch?” “have a good day” “bye” or if you are like me just shut down your system and hide yourself in a magazine (that is if you fit into it...I don’t). And then there are days when office is very boring. So what do you do? Go to a colleague and chat (of course, your boss should not see you both sitting idle and chatting) or both go to the cafeteria and chat oops I mean discuss on some very serious plan of action (read gossip). And again if you are my type, you blog. So here I am back to blogging. But I did something before writing this post which I would like to share.  Don’t worry am not going to talk about the loo breaks or coffee breaks here. Well something we call as “memories”.  

Memories that were once a reality, not very long ago. Trivial talks on trivial things that have now transformed themselves into a precious form, the form of memories. Events that have turned into memories without me realizing when. Memories that had made me laugh and smile once, and yes they did make me smile and revive those moments once again. 

How? Well when things are too close, it sometimes becomes difficult to reach out to them. But google hai na! The answer to almost all our questions. Well…almost all! And if not google…then google’s bro gmail is always at our service. Just went back to some old saved chats in gmail, made more than a year back and read them line by line. Almost like typing them afresh. As I read through the lines I experienced those insignificant moments from the past turning to a significant present in the form of memories. My mind went into the flashback and now each and every moment was running clear on my mind. The thrill, while reading the chat was the same. The humour was also the same. The smile that it brought back on my face is the same what it was before. The feelings were also almost the same. The only difference was that it was me alone feeling this time. 

I don’t know why but I am very certain that it is not me alone created this malfunctioned way. I am pretty sure many of you too do this. May be don’t admit your stupidity (if at all it is one) on a blog like me. But just give it a try. I mean just go back to that old shelf left ignored at one corner of your life and clear the dust of time, you will see some lost memories emerge.  I am sure you will thank me for the smile it is sure to bring back on your face. :)

Selfish, Am I?

Everyone has one particular characteristic that describes them. Mine I would call Stupid. But then there are others who come into the category called Selfish. I don’t say I am a very selfless person but I have never tried to make use of anybody in my life. Neither have I ever struck friendship with anyone for any personal gains. And this is something I am very certain about. But yes have many times felt cheated and used by some selfish creatures who pretend to be friend just to get their selfish motive done. It’s not that you don’t know that what are they upto or you are too stupid to understand why a person is behaving a certain way. Just that sometimes it is the way a person is and you can’t do anything about this inbuilt characteristic of theirs. 

While the other person always turns to you only when s/he needs any favour from you and ditches you the very next moment it is over just to turn back shamelessly again in his/her next selfish act. You know s/he is not worth your friendship but still you don’t officially declare it over. Why? Coz now you are selfish. You have this selfish motive of yours in your mind that perhaps one day s/he will change and get out of this vicious characteristic of her/his. So aren’t you selfish here?

But that “one day” never comes and the days of selfish acts keep coming back again and again. So what do you do? Watch them helplessly make fool of you…or rather themselves. Is it a profitable deal to lose a good friend in order to get some trivial things done? Well I certainly don’t think it is. But for many all they care about is I, Me & Myself.

What do you do with such ‘Friends’? Won’t it be an act of selfishness on your part to chuck them out of your life just coz they have this bad habit of being selfish? I mean we all carry some or other drawback. Some are lazy, some are always forgetful, some are stingy but we don’t snap chords with them, then why with the ones who are selfish to us? Ok I agree the other types don’t harm us unlike the ones who are selfish. But is snapping the chord is the solution?   

Yes I am selfish because I don’t want to lose my friends- good, bad, worse or whatever…so much unlike, still alike….yes I am selfish!

मेरी कहानी

This poem is dedicated to every woman who is a daughter, wife, daughter-in-law, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, housewife and professional. One life, many roles to play. And not just play, play beautifully from the heart.

मैं हूँ एक आम नारी 
सुखी इन पलकों तले कुछ ख्वाब सुनहरे बुनती हूँ 
घर संसार की गृहिणी मैं 
अकेले में खुद से बातें करती हूँ 

यूं तो आज़ाद हूँ मैं
पर कुछ बंदिशें भी मानती हूँ 
कुछ पैसे, कुछ वक़्त और कुछ अपनों के कशमकश के बीच 
मैं खुद की पहचान तलाशती हूँ 

कढाई और कचेरी के बीच फुर्सत मैं 
खुद के कुछ सपने सजाती हूँ 
जननी मैं, मैं ही हूँ अन्नपूर्णा 
आधुनिकता की छवि भी मैं ही बनाती हूँ 

जीवन की भाग दौड़ मैं 
सबको थामे रखती हूँ 
मैं हूँ एक आम नारी 
जीवन की क्क्ची डोर से 
कुछ रिश्ते प्यार के बुनती हूँ :)

Crazy Cedilla!


Who is he?

He is our boss.

What is he doing?

Writing on the board.

What is he writing?

Listing out all the jobs to be done.
Blue for urgent
Black for very urgent
Red for very very urgent.

And this is what we do once he is gone! :P

A Letter To God

Dear Mr. God,

Hope you are in good spirits. Or shall I say hope you are 'with good spirits'. You have never asked still for the courtesy’s sake I should let you know I am doing….well… well I think so! Anyways moving to the point, oh ya Happy New Year to you! I don’t know whether it is apt for you or not but may all your dreams come true and God bless you! Isn’t it so easy for you to bless yourself? I mean if that power is given to us humans no one would be in a state of misery.

Now talking of misery reminds me of mine. This time please pardon me for being selfish as I am going to ask you only for MYSELF! Everytime I see my bank statement it makes me wonder, where am I heading to? Or am I heading to anywhere? So this financial year please do some magic so that my boss loses his mind and grants me increment. Please increase the number of zeros in my bank balance and for your own sake ahem I mean for God’s sake, please don’t erase the one before the zeros like that stupid M Seal AD!

And that’s not all. I have more wishes lined up too. You know being human means being greedy. Anyways that’s how you made us all. It’s now a manufacturing defect and you can’t blame us for it (better you accept your fault). Ok now after money its health. Do some wonder so that all the calories go to the one who stares at my plate and not me! Why don’t you start manufacturing everyone in same shapes and sizes? I think it’s a great idea and you must consider it. You will thank me for this later I bet! As it will save your energy and its a great cost cutting tool.

Keep all my loved ones happy! And please please don’t make me repeat my last year’s mistakes this year again. As i don't know what were those. But few things certainly got screwed up. I can't exactly figure out which ones were good and which ones were not so good. Here i request you to please rewind and have a look, and please rectify the errors. And yes, please help me become more practical…gimme some brains so that I can keep my heart quiet while taking decisions this year. Well the list is huge but I think as of now this will do. Will give you more task once you are done with this one.

Ok now you must be taking it as an act of stupidity for someone to post you a letter online. Well many others might also think on the same lines but I know my letter will reach you through each heart reading this. My words will resonate in your ears through each and every single soul reading my post. But don’t get influenced by their minds. Use your own and please grant my wishes soon. Please please please!

Thanking you.

Yours favourite,
Tanushri Guchhait :)
