Sometimes i wish i could board the next available time machine slot and travel back in time to my most happiest years. While waiting in the platform i take time to ponder..which phase of my life i actually want to revisit. Schooldays ..that option itself is not there when clubbed under the category "Happy" :) College days..hmmm ..interesting..but to be clubbed Happy..something is missing there too. Post graduation period was a farce. So let me not dwell into it. There was an interim period before i got my job and while i was doing my UG. That was the time when i took tuition classes. For a very long period of time, those were the several continuous days of sheer fun and delight. Every evening i would look forward to those tuition classes as much as the kids..err..friends i should say :) True to my college founders motto (one mr.Viveka :D)..my aim, as far as my class was concerned, was not just to teach them..but to induce the curiosity in them to do things on their own. When they begin to relish the joy of solving their problems..i was hardly required as a tutor..but more of a coach. They were a great boost to my confidence and helped in shaping my personality. Those two years i felt would never be matched..ever in my life. Atleast..thats what i was thinking till few months back.
Consider the following place..situated in the remotest corner from any decent civilised locality with the nearest settlement at half an hour drive away by car (provided there is no upturned lorry or container blocking your way). A place so barren and timing so illtimed coupled with meaningless restrictions in the name of security..and to top it all if that place happens to be your haunt for atleast 5 days a week for which visiting and working fee happens to be your salary..i wonder how many would be willing to take up such "entertaining" vocations for a living. Still..people look forward to go there everyday. Every single person's absence..irrespective of their role and designation is felt and missed. Lunch breaks and tea breaks happen to bring out the creative best in those otherwise irritated souls. If there is an award for adaptability it would be well deserved by this motley bunch of people from different places and backgrounds..who have managed to gel in so well that despite the teething troubles workwise...personally they've all becomes friends for life. I can wager a month's salary that any new person joining or visiting the premise would find it hard to believe that this bunch of jolly gud fellas were total strangers 3 months back. Kudos to my team mates and a special thanks to them for bringing cheers to my otherwise dull life :) I would sorely miss you guys.
Sometimes i wish i could board the next available time machine slot and travel back in time to my most happiest years. While waiting in the platform i take time to ponder..which phase of my life i actually want to revisit. Well..for time being..let the machine not roll :) let me enjoy my moments while it lasts.
Happy friendshipday folks :)
