Traveling to Office

I feel that I don’t travel to my job, I travel as a part of my job! Can you feel the difference?

My aunt, who is the Branch manager of a reputed Bank in Vasant Kunj, recently said, "If traveling to your job gives you discomfort, your job is not good." She travels a long distance to her Bank, and thus could relate to my pain when I told her, "I get so tired going and coming back from office!"

My new office in Janakpuri has everything so good about it, except that it is not reached easily. Please read my Travel Chronology:

I step out from my Home Sweet Home and take a rickshaw to the bus-stop. From there I take an over-dover super-duper healthy wealthy over-crowded bus to Moti Nagar Metro Station. (This route bus is always so jam-packed that passengers haplessly exchange each other’s CO2…smell their bad odor …my light blue colored pants are almost shaded with tinch of brown and lack with shoe dust…howsoever neat I comb my hair on leaving, my pony leaves it place and goes sometimes to left, sometimes to right…my kajal makes an ugly looking black color on other person’s shirts, et all!) Then it irks even more to wait for the driver to start the bus, when you know that you have a long way to travel!

And eventually, I leave the bus to board the Metro till Janakpuri West, (this is a relief!) and then one more bus! This is how I tiredly reach my office, then sit at my computer and hit the keyboard whole day long. The result is that I have lost weight, got dull complexion and boorish hair. Hope there were an easy route to my office! Near to 4 hours journey daily is leaving me exhausted at the EOD.
I get to see many people everyday…the restless IT employees, excited college-goers, boisterous school kids, tired and poor laborers, anxious vendors, indifferent people, caring humanity, old looking uncles and aunts whose faces reflect life’s dreariness, et all. They depict the bitter and sweet symphonies of life…they depict existence.


  1. What a fight! Truly, traveling in bus during office hrs is really difficult!!

  2. hmmmmmmm....I can understand babie!! Even I had faced almost similar situations wn I was in Elixir...but it was less pathetic then urs! :|

When She Danced to the Raaga

She stood stiff, with her neck buried into her piano, just the way a cow grazes the grass. She believed this way, she can bring her mind closer to the task and concentrate fully. Her fingers moved like undersized waves that ebb and flow recklessly into a sea. The black and white keys, the notes and half-notes blow some syncopated music that she could dance to. She so wanted to! But she concentrated to get the Malkaush Raag right.

Some music begins to flow into the room like maple leaves fall in Ontario- soft, and bronze red.

“Guru ji says this music releases some sort of nourishing energy”- she chuckled without looking up at him.

“Nourishing energy? Umm… like some soul stirring?”- he enquired.

“Soul-stirring. Yes. This raag is believed to have been created by Goddess Parvati to sooth Shiva when He was outraged and would not calm down...after Tandav...and…”

She resumed her attention on the Arohana notes. She just slipped her hand from Komal Ga to Shuddh Pa. "Pa is completely omit…

You won’t believe Who Would be Watching ‘Bahubali-2’ Even Before its Worldwide Release!

Movie buffs in India are eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ but guess it’s the Queen Elizabeth II of UK who would watch it first. Reports have it that Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ will be screened in UK a day prior to its worldwide release. 
The British Film Institute will showcase Indian films as a part of Indian Film program from April till December and Baahubali has made the cut to be screened to mark 70 years of India’s independence. If sources are to be believed, not just Queen Elizabeth II but PM Modi would also be among the first ones to know “Katappa ne Bahubali ko kyu maara”. He is likely to attend the screening on 27th April, i.e., one day before its worldwide release – but no official statement has been declared.
With a budget of Rs. 150 crores, Baahubali is the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema.  It is a sweeping epic that glues the audience for straight 2 hours and 40 minutes, with our mouths wide open to the gr…

3 Reasons Why Not Wearing a Bra is sometimes the BEST Feeling in the World

As insane as it may sound, but women are ALWAYS in a love-hate relationship with their bras. They would be very choosy about the size, make and color. Every morning, they would meticulously choose which one to wear that complements their dress; but this dear feeling would soon vanish as the day advances. Through this post, I’m trying to list down the reasons why women love to hate their bras that they happily cling on to on a daily basis.

   .Just Letting Them Breathe For it is the basic and fundamental right of any being. Yes, boobs are beings and women feel the urge to unwind and let them breathe, for breathe they must. So when the days are heavy and you can’t take the cruelties of the world anymore, remember to unhook

  2.   To Avoid that Stabbing Feeling

Men would never understand the feeling of something constantly stabbing their chest and shoulders. Women would agree that however comfortable bra they wear, it can sometimes sting the body (padded and wired ones specially are kille…
