Here comes the Milestone

I have officially reached the first milestone of my life; I have now lived for exactly a quarter of a century on this third rock from the sun. [Bowing to all the applause]

Man, has it been a great journey so far, I don’t regret anything that I have said and done… actually, I would like to edit a few things that I have said, but then, what the heck!

I landed on this planet on a dark and stormy night …or was it a blazing sunny noon, I am not exactky sure of that, because I never bothered to ask my mom about it. Anyways, the earliest memory I have is the green all around me, the green mountains, the green fields, the green people… hmmm, ok edit the green people out. all this green is my earliest memory of Mangalore. The land I was born in, the land of mountains and sea, the heaven of fish and pork, the land of the angry sun and stary skys, the land of a million flies! After this for the next four years my memory is all blurred, but I remember shitting on that uncle who used to make the ugliest of baby faces. Now fast forward to my fourth year and there I am dropping coconuts on my cousins head in Bangalore. I was a born rowdy and I am proud of it. ; )

My childhood is the best time of my life so far, except for all the injuries on others and me. School was the best part of it all. Those white washed walls and the blue and white uniforms, the super sized teachers whom we called ‘Miss’, which I will never know why because all of them were definitely married, the big tamarind tree in the playground under which we kids shared ghost stories, the lagori, hide-n-seek and lock and key,the story books and messed up scinece models, the stage on which I goofed around so much, the benches with our names carved on them and the ink spots on the roof aimed precisely by aspiring sharp shooters. Oh and all those friends, the best I have ever had.

This memory is my Neverland, my bliss and my strength.

After school, life became this fast paced hunting trip. With every year my agendas and resolutions became more mundane and dull. College passed in a jiffy and then came the time to work. And then came the realization that I am not a Police Inspector like I dreamed of being(after watching a Malashree movie) but the thing I most hated, a scientist! [waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan : (]

Actually, being grown up and ‘responsible’ is not that bad, in spite of all the hectic schedule and ass kissing and back stabbing, all the heartbrakes and tears and all the anxiety and BP rise, I still get to kick people, I still roll on the floor and laugh whenever I watch a funny movie, I still dance like nobody’s watching, I still sleep like a dog and eat like a pig and I still dream about Neverland.

Life is still beautiful for me; I smell the roses and count my blessings, everyday.

And I still have my best friend around. :)

Well, this is my first milestone and I definitely look forward to the next...
