Lessons in life

Certain days are not about striking things off your personal lists of to-dos. Instead, they take their own course and make you meander. Today was one such day.

There were loads of things that needed-to-be-done. I thought I had it all planned and under control. The day, however, had a mind of its own. Instead of making me geared up for my aerobics, it made me sleep excess. Instead of edit, it gave me interesting conversations and discussions. And instead of buying my new hard disk, it took me on a ride all over the city!

Probably the day was not meant to be about all these three big things. Maybe it was just about all those things not happening, leading up to the simple finale- ending up on Ashram Road in front of a small street side sop selling Chanaa zor garam- something I've been craving to eat for the last two months!

The delight of digging into that paper cone of the mouth-watering snack was a crowning glory to an otherwise unproductive, but enjoyable day, nevertheless.

Maybe we all expect too much from our everydays, from people, from life itself.

When somehow you learn to string together your simple stones instead of diving for pearls, you might just end up with your own wacky piece of original and wonderful jewellery.

Maybe it is not about the milestones, but just about the long and winding journey to end up with your favourite cone of chanaa zor garam on a cold wintry evening!
