Not again..

Sigh, I'm down with cold and fever .. again! That makes it the umpteenth time since I started working, and perhaps the 5th time in the past few months. :( If I look back at college, I hardly ever remember falling ill, barring the usual cramps. Whats happened?? Double sigh!

Now wouldn't it be nice if falling ill meant that you could lie comfortably in bed and be pampered with healthy food and fruits? Have your whims and fancies catered to? Be able to miss work, knowing that it would all be taken care of?

Unfortunately, none of that happens, all I get to do is watch bad tv with aching watery eyes, and wonder what I'm going to do for food, and try to eat khichdi, which is not only self make, but self made when self is in fever.. now can it get much worse??

And then again maybe I won't

Finished couple of long pending tasks today, and felt the relief that you can only feel once you've lived with the guilt of not having done them! Though I might have saved myself the rotten feeling for weeks if I'd been less procrastinating and better at managing my time..

Also remembered some beautiful lines I'd heard in one of those Kavi Sammelan I attended with papa centuries ago..

कुछ करने के लिये
मौसम नही
मन चाहिये

Maybe I'll learn, and then again maybe I won't..

Just another manic monday...

Mindless days , one after another..

You meet another human being, and put on your morning act, customary smile, small talk, bla bla bla.
Soon fit into the machine, turn on your engines , perhaps go into auto pilot, tracking, email, meetings, soon the days melts away.
Keep up the charade, till you reach the empty house, and switch off the smile, and kick off the act along with the shoes.
Get a fat and carb fix, and soon turn into a couch potato yourself. Numb the mind, vegetate.

And then it starts again.
