There have been no confirmed sightings of our Adventurist(A) in recent times!! Where has our friendly neighbourhood blogger gone?
Callers from various quarters claimed to have seen A in action…..in discos, at rallys, as a part of morchas and weirdest of all, at fashion shows. All these claims have turned out to hoaxes since even wild horses could not drag A there.
This reporter was lucky enough to corner A into revealing what has been going on behind the scenes. So here is the scoop….
A was busy following, cheering and celebrating a very dear friend’s achievement! It is not easy being friends’ with COO of Blue Ridge. A had to field and filter numerous calls so that only a select and legitimate few got across. And then there was the launch of this dream project to attend. 🙂 It was a very well managed and busy affair. A indulged in sight seeing, canoeing, catching up and topped it all with a great lunch, all at one location. Sadly, A missed the glitzy night party. Not to worry though, losses have been made up for. This was in September.
A always tries and finds new passions to pursue in life. Regulars with A will be surprised to know that A was busy laying out the math of life. Clearly numbers have not been A’s favourite friends except when counting the reps for bench press. So A had no rest till the math was all done and the sums resolved. Here is an original from A, “For everything you have missed, you have gained something else. And for everything you gain, you lose something else. It’s about your outlook towards life. You can either regret or rejoice.”
A spent time canoeing down the Bhima river, as far as the Ujani Dam. A is happy when the mind is free to wander and the hands are busy in fruitful chores. Nature is A’s greatest passion and since this initiative was coupled with a social cause that A believes in, it was extremely satisfying for A.
Diwali was family time at A’s. A drove down to Alibaug and thereafter to Chiplun. Keynote from trip: Konkan is great at that time of the year. There were a lot of photo opps and exchanging of gifts. A loves to see the delight on the faces of near and dear ones as they open the thoughful gifts. A sought blessings at Amnayeshwar and asked that there not be too much to do with numbers in this life atleast. Amen!
A’s once a year day had a special touch this year. Friends, flowers and FOOD!! Yum!
A could not wait to see Om Shanti Om! It is one of the most masala-iest film ever and A loved it. A was ga-ga over Shanti, the character portrayed by Deepika Padukone. How much there is of either in each other, one cannot tell but what can be told is that Deepika is the film’s special package. Talk of having everything in the right place and the right size. The spotlights and paparazzi are bound to follow, while the expectations are sure to kiss the pinnacle. :))
Incidently, A still spends all free time at work when not rejoicing with life’s greatest blessings- friends and family!
A signs off with another original, ” Remember, you are born to live. Don’t live because you are born. Don’t go the way life takes you; take life the way you go!”
Now that A is back, we can look forward to more engaging and heartfelt thoughts and observations.
Watch this space. :))
