The first thing I did in the morning after reaching office was to book a office cab for myself so that I could stay back :(

I was reading someone's blog today where they have mentioned about receiving a long mail from a friend and how great it felt to get such a long self written mail from someone .... so that makes me think that it has been so long since I wrote a long mail (which I so used to write) to anyone :(

Five People You Meet in Heaven

Finally I got  the motivation to write about this book that I have read last month, in fact  I have even completed  the predecessor to this book by the same author ,"Tuesdays With Morrie".
Well Five People You Meet in Heaven is about Eddie an amusement park mechanic  who dies while saving a child  and then  he starts his journey to heaven where he meets  five people , some of them strangers ,  rest his known ones  but each  of them helps him  understand what all he  went through in his life  on earth.
As already mentioned in my previous post , this book made me want to die as soon as possible so that I could find out the reasons or rational behind what all has happened or happening in my life.

Another of must read recommendation from my side. 

Here I am just quoting some of the quotes/statements from that book along with my comments on the same. 

The running boy is inside every man no matter how old he gets. 
Yes I also feel everyone at some point in their life want to run, run aimlessly, run without any purpose or any reason. And I hope that someday I will experience that.

Not being able to speak is good. It helps you listen.
Yep sometimes its so necessary for everyone to stop speaking themselves so that they can listen what the other is saying. 

No life is waste. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone.
Ha ha. Need to accept this asap. 

Young men go to war. Sometimes because they have to , sometimes because they want to. Always they feel they are supposed to.
Yes I too feel that when we are young we somehow feel that the only way we can serve our country is by being in the force, fighting at the front. 

Before he can devote himself to God or a woman, a boy will devote himself to his father, even foolishly, even beyond explanation. 
So so true. Can so easily relate to this statement. 

You have peace when you make it with yourself.
Huh. Yes thats the ultimate goal of life i,e, at the end of it we are at least at peace with ourselves.

There are many such statements in this book which make you think, make you look back at life with a purpose to make it more simple and acceptable to oneself.
Will soon share the experience of reading "Tuesdays with Morrie."

Its even better than this one.

Its no more there....

On my way to office , just after crossing the Badarpur red light behind the petrol pumps (which are no longer there) used to stand a small temple of Maa Siddheswari. 

So since I have been going through this route everyday since last 4-5 odd years I always used to read the board of this temple and since the route to the same was through a car workshop I always used to wonder how the temple must be?
Somewhere I had the desire or rather intuition that one day I am going to visit it. I didn't have any fixed desire or wish, just I felt that there will be a day when I will be stranded along that place and as I will have nothing else to do I will just walk up to this temple and visit it.

So as most of you must be knowing that the whole place around that area has been demolished to make way for the Metro as well as the flyover so few weeks back I saw that the workshop is no more and I could see the small temple building in fact I could see  the door clearly. So that made me wonder that now it will be quite easy for me to visit it someday.

But just few days back I saw that even that temple is no longer there.

I don't know but just since there was some intuitionist bonding with that temple and although like most of the temples in India here too I know that they will reestablish this temple either at some other place or under a tree nearby , I somehow feel it won't be same. That feeling of have-to-and-will-visit-it-someday won't be fulfilled even if I visit the new establishment.

Have the third job appraisal of my life today and don't know why it doesn't excite...May be because I know no matter whatever happens it will be disappointing because of the way its done.

Just 4 years old career and appraisals have turned boring :(

Surprise surprise ..I guess it was last years  effect thats why I was little off but the meeting went good.. infact better than expected.

Why the hell I expect, when I don't expect I am usually surprised :)
