In the book ‘The Alchemist’ , Paulo Coelho talks about how the world conspires to help us achieve our dreams.

Unfortunately, when I drive I feel the whole world is conspiring against me thus helping not to reach anywhere on time.

Ha! I know you are making a mental note to tell me that I should plan my day and start early. Fine , I do that on all normal days.

On Saturday, at around 10 a.m I drove to Besant Nagar form Adyar. It took me 1 hour. The reason??

Not even a VIP! Cars, vans and buses filled with young men going up and down the road for attending a rally. Well, initially I though it is to attend the rally but they were going on the both the directions of the road. I decided to take some shortcuts and reached the destination safely.

At 3 pm I drove back and much to my despair I found the roads still full. People were dancing because their party head had given a wonderful speech.

Women are universally acknowledged as bad drivers, so there is always this attitude to horn incorrigibly at the person before you especially if the guy there knows that the driver is a lady! That apart, I have seen many old men unable to start their car after a long signal. How I felt I should have put those dark glasses on my car.
These party men were worse than the any cab driver I have ever seen. They were so excited, rash and impatient.

And Lo! Next morning when I read the newspaper, I learnt that some 5 men had died due to an accident. What a sheer waste of LIFE!!

Rallies can be held, but atleast give them a particular route or something so that the rest of the crowd can chalk up some other route and reach their destination.

Well, its been a while since i blogged(quite obvoius from the date). Anyways , the reasons may be many, but truth is I have started procrastinating . Another reason could be the transfer of a friend of mine who had inspired me to start a blog. Well, more into the habit of procrastination, I feel it has terribly destroyed my life. I feel each day is just the same as the previous. I get up, do the daily chores , go to work and and after coming home i fall flat on the bed(whatever time it is) and sleep like a log. There are few reasons which may induce me to stay awake , a movie or maybe some discussions with my family. Despite the time I go to sleep, I am unable to get up before 7 a.m. Added to that, the days I am at home, I struggle to keep my eyes open by 4 pm in the evening. Every night I open some novel, and my eyes automatically close and I will take aon oath that I will finish the novel the next day. Another thing I postpone is wishing people. When I get up, I remember that it is someone's birthday and then I think that I will wish by 8 , then I say maybe after breakfast, then after I reach office, then maybe during lunch and then the it becomes 9 pm . Then too, unless I know the person very well, I don wish at that time. This has led to complete frustration and I have resolved to bring my life back to order within the next month. Yes, if you are wondering how I have come to a conclusion so soon, it is because of a friend who claimed that the blogs I write are extremely long. Well owe this one to you, my friend!
