Reflections on Reality!


Have donned the role of a single mom for a while, whilst eby is away taking care of his career.Β The first complaint I had against the city when commpared to Mumbai is that Bangalore is slow! I still do not know how and when I got the idea πŸ˜› but that was what I had cribbed 2 years ago. Now the list of jobs is endless, each of them ‘choice-less’Β making me breathless!

To make things “better” I had decided that the only way to get adjusted to the ‘crowded’ loneliness is to dump myself into a list of priorities so that I end up too busy in doing things which will avoid me sitting and thinking and eventually cribbing. As a result, all those shopping, important documents procuring, kids treatment/medicine, course project, name it i had procrastinated! Now they pile up and smile at meΒ as I wonder how I’m going to run around alone to do all this!!!

I got busy during the weekend with my cousin. Was thrilled to find that she’s never heard of McD and doesnt have a clue about DBC. Saturday roamed with her the entire length and breadth of the city, Trying DBC, chocolava, McD, panipuri, popcorn (cinema special) punjabi kulcha, parantha &Β lassi..hmmm i lost track of what more..oh ya..drinks @ kiwi@kiss( bangalorean friends please dont waste your money there!) and yeah biryani & bajji for dinner! Sunday she started the day in the loo. It was a loop of vomitting and dysentry. It was not before 11am, that I got a glimpse of herΒ  and then, I got busy in medicine for the stuff!

Β Monday got busyΒ buying things for the kitchen and cleaning up and getting things in order in the kitchen rack when my maid servant went out like a storm! i had no clue what it was all about and when asked I was reprimanded for not buying her milk for the last couple of days, (which actually I had bought but got spoilt as I forgot to boil!) No wonder my cousin calls her my ‘paid mother-in-law’!

TuesdayΒ got busy with the hospital amd medicine. Went there, waited a long time only to be told the doctor is too busy with another patient! In short the pile had not come one step down. Infact it has piled up all the more. The only way was sorting it down. An old friend called for a coffee. i dont know if i sounded rude but I told in the most pleasing tone, that Im just not “mentally prepared” for coffee…i have a world swirling round me..Kindly excuse! I got back to the list and… thought the only way was to jot them down in a paper and do it one step at a time…when i got a call from someone very close!

“ feeling very low”. I knew I had to empathize..sympathize..whatever. but my mind was in a roll. I waited to take a breath and asked. “why what happened”?!”Β  I was already ready with phrases like “dont worry” “Its ok” “things will take its time, but eventually settle down” etc etc. Not that I was in a really empathetical mood, but I know it was expected of me and i was prepared…till I heard the answer…

Guess what??? “I have got 3 new pimples in my face”!!!!

I seriously did not want to bash men here…but forΒ the knowledge of those whos gonna come and comment that such is the nature of women πŸ˜› πŸ˜› this conversation happened with a “GUY” not a girl! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› :D! and it wasnt a joke either! πŸ˜›

  3. What you need to do, is let go of your formality and say “Yes, please!” when people offer help πŸ˜›
