After several warnings, I have finally decided to revive my almost dead blog.
Getting down to things, I just realised it’s that time of the year when toys are IN.
How I miss the days of poking fun at the maliigai poo clad aunties, croaky singers forced to pay tribute by singing in front of a sundal-relishing kootum during navrathri, pattu pavadais in bright Indian colours with broad zaaris, the much anticipated quarterly vacations when I yearned to sleep all I wanted, cousins visitng from all over the country. Suddenly, it is action time. Carnatic music floods the streets in Mylapore before the Kapaleeshwar kovil in Mylapore (not that it doesn’t happen any other time of the year, considering that it is the most happening art centre in Chennai, still.) All this makes me look back and gently acknowledge the fact that I have grown past all those days of vettiness, all those days when I needn’t give a damn for anything are begone. It is this very thought that scares me.
Change is the only thing that is constant. How I agree with this now!
My friends have changed. My best friends have changed. My perception of life has undergone a tumultous change. I have changed as a person.
I’d like to believe I learnt things the hard way. Belief.
I’ve not kept in touch with too many people. I’ve not bothered to be the social butterfly, that I was, here in law school. Coldness has kept me warm here. Ignorance, in bliss. I’ve this feeling of guilt deep inside me which tells me that I should get back to what I was and give everything my best shot instead of the half-hearted effort I put into things here. This post is an apology. An apology to all those people I have been extremely rude to, in the period of three years. Not staying in touch. Being a snob, as Swathi would quote me.
For starters, I’ve just been busy trying to keep myself busy. Nothing else has changed with me, in life. I still believe there is something nice and good about every person I meet, I still think we tend to draw conclusions about people based on their friends or based on whether the majority of your friends like that person, which is totally uncool, I still believe we can set things right. I believe there is still a lot left to be done by me.
I know this post has been very random.
But then again, all my posts are.
