One of those nights when you don’t feel sleepy at all..and all you want to do is to listen to the music or read a book..these days read blogs or just chat with an old friend-specially the USites whom mostly you’ll find online at this odd hours here in India 🙂
So right now I’m doing two of the above…Reading blogs and writing one 🙂
This situation has come to me after a long time..meaning..me being up this late…usually I’ve made it a point that I’ll sleep any how by 11ish so that I’m able to get up around 5.30-6 ish and go for the walk…so that I don’t have any excuse to make to myself for not giving up on the sleep and cosy bed that I’m tucked in.. 😉
This night reminds me today of all those nights when I had board exams..right from the start I’ve been a night-outer [if that’s the right word..] basically in Hindi people like us are usually tagged as Nishachar ! So,I belonged to that category given that I never had the inclination to get up early and for studies? never ! Yes,hate me for that but I’ve always been like this !
So night was the time when I used to study [?] and my parents used to be so concerned about my tea thingie..mum used to make it in the night for me and papa used to make it in the morning for me along with his own and then he used to sit for a while with me and chat 🙂 [looking so proud and feeling bad about all the mehnat I had to put in to studies !!] Parents are like that,hai na ?
I so want to go back to those days…I always think..things always sound good..better actually when we come of it..when we have moved on…not that we don’t cherish them when they occur to us but when we are ahead of them and leave our past behind..we want the time to come back to us ! Specially the school days…the friends that we had..the carefree life that we had…and the so loving parents that we had…in all this exercise the only thing remains constant is parents ! But once you are married and specially are located in another city you definitely miss on the time spent with them…so there…I want to go back to those times !! And no this doesn’t mean that I’m not happy with where I’m or the hubby is not cruel or something or even the MIL.. 🙂 All’s perfect….should these be the only reasons why we should miss our parents ? No na ? We can still miss them and their house while being happy at our own !
Hmm…senti post this is..I also feel that the quietness of the night does that to you..that you wander in your thoughts and you are taken to your past..and you kind of become philosophical…happens with you too ?
Any ways, on a different note..I’ve got a new book..oh don’t look at me like that…I know I’m not suppose to buy book until I finish the 25 unread ones that are lying on the bookshelf..I know ! But there is this syndrome of buying books…can’t help ! So I went to the book store today [despite of my inner self telling me not to break the promise…but alas only if I knew how to control my cravings for books] and bought this:
