As I Passed by – 2010

January 10, 2011

Another year passes by with me doing nothing substantial πŸ™‚ From 2008, years have become just a numbers to me. Life moves on as it is. Not many problems, not many rewards.

Work wise this is the best year I ever had. I am really getting to know what it is all about and knowing what I am doing. I am really happy with what I have done. There is some clarity in the thought. Also my PM and friends around me says that I am doing well. 2 years back that’s not the case with me struggling like Indian batsmen of old on bouncy pitches. Now I am more confident and like to have a go at anything that is thrown at me. But still the feeling of ‘you-don’t-belong-here’ pops up and its quite true too. I am still watching for the opportunities where I can jump on πŸ™‚

Blogging wise, it started very well and towards the end very dull which I completely regret. I have written some good posts, thanks to Bloggers Premier league. And thanks to my teammates we have won the title. One of the high points of blogging. Of late I have become real lazy. Even though I felt like writing a few things especially about cricket, I couldn’t put myself to sit and complete it (I could see many of you leaving a sigh of relief πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ).

Personally, this year is not the best of mine. One good thing is, I am still in contact with many of my college and school friends. We are meeting quite frequently too πŸ™‚ There are few very good friends I have made all through the year and there are few losses too. And the later part of the year went in thinking about it which affected the times I sat in idle.

And I have met many of you in person this year πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ The year started with a bang with me and Swaram meeting Saritha akka and her kids πŸ™‚ Then we had a wonderful meet (Aarti, Uma, Vimmuuu, Vishesh, OG, Pals Anish and me) in Chennai with OG and Pals vacationing at the same time πŸ™‚ In February, I went over to Vimmuuu’s wedding and fortunate enough to meet his lovely family. Ashwathy came down to Chennai at the end of February and we had pretty good time chatting about all under the Earth πŸ™‚ By May, I went to Coimbatore and met DI. Its really wonderful seeing him and having a chat with him.

By June, me, gils, G3 akka and Aarti met in Chennai. Had a good chat. By August, thanks to Pals visit to Chennai we had a meet after 8 months and its another fun meet with OG and vishesh missing from the previous meet. By Sepetember, G3 akka’s marriage held and I went by morning and missed meeting everybody as they went there by evening 😦 Then while on my way back to Chennai from Mysore met Pixie and AK in Bangalore and it is one fun evening πŸ™‚

My dear friend Lance came from London to Chennai and me, Karthik, Kaaki and he had a meet in EA and time just flown away in that meet.

By December, me met Smita πŸ™‚ She came down to Chennai and plan was to meet her by early December as she said she will leave to Mumbai by the end of first week. A meet was in plan as Pals was also here at that time but nothing came together and we couldn’t meet. I called her to wish on her birthday, found that she was still in Chennai and plan was made to meet her on the next day and it’s one funny story how I reached her home πŸ™‚ We had a real nice time talking a lot about (What else!!!) books. I met her son Arnav too who is too curious about everything happening around him πŸ™‚

So is 2010 is different for me??? No is my answer and the truth is, I didn’t took any steps to make it different. Even if I develop good new habit, I am not doing it wholeheartedly.

  • I wanted to start my gardening at the top of my house but didn’t done it.
  • I went to a NGO to make kids learn some computer and English for 2 weeks but didn’t continue 😦
  • I started reading many books but couldn’t complete even one.
  • My movie watching reduced to a all-time low.

When we look back for a day without doing nothing we comfort ourselves that by saying well, there is tomorrow. But an year goes like that means, its bad. I am feeling like that for 2010. When I look back through 2010, I truly don’t know how to sum it up. It had its share of wonderful days which I felt why it don’t last long and the days which I don’t want to live again. This year has taught me one big thing. Never roam around without any plans that will make you waste your time. So whats for 2011???…. Will post soon πŸ™‚

    For me it was the reverse. The first half of the year was boring with work taking up all the time, and the second half was just too exciting with me working on couple of blogs and going around to new places, taking photos, reading books and all… I guess life is always a mixed bag. We ought to take the good as well as the bad, in our stride. It was good meeting you, just yesterday I went to that Okkadam book shop complex and bought two books. Thanks for introducing to that treasure trove πŸ™‚

    Destination Infinity

    kanagu: Yup… I love to them equally.. but couldn’t do.. hope I learn it by this year πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ what are the books you have bought???
