2017 started off with Jallikattu protests, which tuned all of TN in same frequency, with the emotional outpour flooding the sands of Marina. I had firsthand witness to some really senti scenes on MRTS stations that would put any mass scene on movies to shame, even without the BGM. Politically, it was a watershed year for TN with so much of chaos and considering the recent by-election looks like 2018 is all set for a tumultuous beginning as well.
With junior turning two, everything in our house, that used to be at ground level, have been shifted to over 4 feet high as a safe distance. He has an interesting way of expressing his displeasure or anger by cussing out numerals. On normal recite mode he would say from one to ten in sequence. When irritated he would mutter “one, Shevan (seven), nine, ten”. The entire apartment knows about this and always make it a point to tease him for a show. 2018 may well be the beginning of his school year and not a day passes for me without dreading the d-day. The coming year also ensures several major changes all within the first quarter which would set the wheels of my life turning another corner. As much I try to detach myself, the eventuality of the situation does creep in at times. At least a few of those major decisions should’ve been taken care in 2017 itself which didn’t materialize , courtesy the one up above. Hopefully, in few months’ time, things should take care of itself.
So long folks. Hope to catch you all again on the other side of the year. Wish you all a year full of happiness, joyous memories to cherish and good health.
