Still a newborn, I guess…


Just when you get a teeny-weeny bit complacent of having seen it all, you instantly realize you have hardly begun. (Now, that line is for the quotation book). This day last year, between one of those philosophical interludes of those days, I wrote on this space that I still felt like a newborn. A year down, this time, with a little more sense and common sense, I wouldn’t still disagree with most of that.

It’s been a long year, the past one. Some promises went unfulfilled (and I’m thankful for that!), some people disappeared over the horizon, some have come ever closer. I’ve been doing some same old things, some new things, nurtured new habits, been a good boy and been a bad boy. But what has not changed is that, with every passing year, it always seems a completely different one ahead.

Last years assumptions and ideas seem invalid today. With blunders come a sense of sensibility. And then more blunders. That’s a cycle, I guess. I do still have the same last year’s face though.  But that doesn’t count. What does count, is that I can count one more candle in my birthday cake today. I’ve become old? How many times I’ve wondered why do we ever have to grow up. But then, we do want to grow up, don’t we?  But may be, not this fast.

So what do I look forward to? Another year of new blunders, and new sensibility? A year where all my dreams and aspirations and all sorts of things under the sun and beyond Pluto come true, and may blessings be showered and a long prosperous life and blah and more blah? Naah!

Forget the usual blahs. To me, the most exciting thing about future is that, I’m going to be in it. And that’s reason-enough to look forward to it. So, all you who sleep tonight, let’s just have fun.
