NRI - New Relation Induction

Olagathulaye easyaana topic and also the most difficult one apdinu ethachum iruntha..it would self introduction i guess. Everyone can talk their heads off about themselves, but knowing where to draw the line is something known only to a select few. This technique comes in handy the most in case when a new relation is entering ones life. How much is too much or how little would be considered insufficient info? If prioritizing the points is suggested a solution, which one to share and which one to leave behind to be understood on their own? What to showcase and what not to? How truthful should one be or rather which points to hide? The art of creating a good impression, revealing as much or as little information and yet be safe enough to create a positive impression is something i crave to inculcate for a long long long time and falling woefully short. I've never ever made a decent first impression and have heard my good friends tell at a later point of time in our interactions that they never believed we would stick around with them for so long. Often one end up projecting a totally contradictory picture of their real self and have to catch up all along later to correct the impression.

Had a recent conversation with a friend of mine who is getting engaged in few days time. Now read the above paragraph from her perspective and i hope it might throw some picture on how our conversation would've gone :) Getting a new person in ones life is something of a life changer. If its going to be ones life partner, nothing would ever be the same again. In continuation with my previous post on Future shock, which basically talks about change and adapting to change, marriage is the biggest wanton life altering event in anyone persons life i guess. If one looks at milestones in each persons life, marriage would definitely be the major one which changed the course of their existence. Its the most complex of relation and brings with it as much pleasure and pain and still people world over take the plunge into that maddening ocean. Its proved by the mere fact that, though every one craves for 'Paradise regained', 'Paradise lost' has sold more copies than its sequel :) Its a whole big lottery, inviting a person into your life without bothering about the consequences, wholly resting everything on hope that it would work out in the end and surprisingly it works for the vast majority!!

I dont see an end to this topic so winding up with a wonderful quote suttufied from somewhere - 'Sorrow can take care of itself. But to get the full value of happiness, you should have someone to share it with' (and to add to it, if that person also happens to be your companion for life, well, that is a life well spent i guess).

Wishing my friend all the very best on her quest towards a new beginning. God bless you.

(Just now saw the count on publishing this post!!! Guess what..this also happens to be post number 500.. :D :D :D  )
