Invent ways to kill time, take walk around the campus for no reasons counting my steps to and fro, with all the guilt-ridden thoughts, retire for the day at two AM still thinking how best can I start preparing for the exam. I’m getting more and more scared and less and less bothered….. Spare me a wise word

Oops! I feel lost here.. Dunno why, may be because am not regular here.. Life is happening and you just cannot pause…

And Not to worry , I am not going to fill in this post Like the previous one, with the all those events which darken and dampen the cheerful days of my life : Its a Tag I got a month ago. Thanks “Priyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa” (The ring tone version of the Supergirl) for tagging me.

The tag:
Two questions in each category answer them and then tag your friends from the blog-o-sphere. (Simple enough right) Leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged and you are all set.

Your oldest memory
What were you doing 10 years ago?

Your first thought today morning
If you built a time capsule today what would it contain?

This year ….
What do you see yourself doing 14 years from now?

My oldest memory :
Well. Its in bits and pieces, My School, Me as a Kindergarten kid, sleeping in the noons, The statue of Mother Mary, Our garden of Eden, My first Eve in life, The gramophone in our headmistress office, My first Bible, Mom getting me ready to school,

10 years ago :
Eight standard, 1998.. Well September, A girl proposed to me, (I know you’re reading this. I just can’t help this one A#%a*&) and I said Thank you…

My first thought today morning :
Oops yet another week, Last week Just flew by, Time flies like nobody’s business. I have don’t have classes today. So I can afford to be late. well Just get out of the bed, you lazy bum.

My time capsule would contain :
Well, Make sure that all my memories are intact, Beg, borrow or steal Pensieve from Dumbledore. A few dozen letters and few books.

This year :
Give up every damn thing, A Vacation is down the lane, and probably planning to go on a hibernation soon.

14 years from now :
Well, Just the same old balding bachelor, a faculty in a college/university, a happy dad with three kids around, taking my dog for a walk, catching up with a old friend over a cup of chai/coffee, bumping into someone randomly at a departmental store, as usual a long phone conversation, writing another tag, blogging, meeting up a blogger-friend, inviting a friend/family for lunch/dinner, an evening long drive or a causal moonlit-midnight-talk with her, a solitude evening stroll, me reading a book, a vacation, or else, or else a lonely woods surrounded with all eerie sounds, me rested in peace…… Kal Ho Naa ho………

And now the quotes tag by Aneesha:

“The twists and turns of ‘fate’ would cease to shock if we knew, and expected nothing more than the barest truths and facts of life
