2320 hrs UAE time, half time into the Holland Vs uruguay match, three shots of Cutty Sark down the drains;like our Professor Balasubramanniam used to say-I started contemplating; on a serious note whether to fix myself a fourth one or not, but on a lesser seriousity -on life!!
The previous week went quite well, had a nice amount of bitching on Facebook; though I had to argue with my wife that it is a real stress buster. I am sure shes not convinced, but it did bring back memories of college life in capsule size!! But at the back of my idle mind, I had this notion that I was actually stretching myself a bit farther. Cant remember those rules of elasticity that I heard somewhere in college. But yes, the essence was should I show much more maturity? Should I set limits for myself? Should I let my heart race well past my not yet grey hairs boundaries???I have heard this question manytimes through stares, through comments ,direct and indirect.
I was still contemplating a 4th shot when I saw the mango Fruity ad..
Huge mangoes rolling down slopes and falling from trees; MTV Bakra reborn.
But the ad caption got my attention;it was inline with my present thought process.
''Why grow up??''
Yeah thats a nice one, why grow up??I mean you can do all what you have to do and not bother what people might think of you- if it doesnt hurt anyone. Would it be mean? or would it be fun? Maybe even pulling a leg here and there would actually add some luster to the whole thing. But still;should I draw lines?Should I set limits?
Do people really change over a period of time or is it just that they only pretend that they have changed? I am not taking into account of the professional changes;just the pure basic animal in each.
Can someone who could make everyone burst into laughter become a pretty serious guy over a period of years??
Can someone who had been kind and generous turn into a mean and selfish prick just like that??
No , I dont think so!!
So is it a veil??
Ohh,its too much of thinking needed !!I aint ready for that yet!!
I poured a fourth one into the glass,man this was much easier!!!
