Blog: Saturday and Mondays.

The most cumbersome task for any working professional/anyone is to get up on time or reach office on time on the Monday morning. Its nothing against home makers the madness of running around the trains, buses, cars and rickshaws is much more agonizing to answering phones and call-bells. Its not that there is no mad rush reaching on other days but lets just say that Monday Mornings a simply "different" . You see I hate getting late anywhere, I think its a crime to let anyone wait.The classic example I give would be a doctor getting late into an OT just by 2 minutes resulting in a loss of a dear life. So those who say what happens if I am two minutes late, then think about it.I dont mind reaching a place 5 to 10 minutes early. The key to reaching anywhere on time is to start early. A stitch in time save nine.
There is a mad rush to get lost from the office at the end of the work week and everyone runs as if there is no turning back. Monday morning is loathsome until u have that cup off coffee and brings back the focus to realities of life. The only way to find yourself is lose it all to what you do. The key being performing and doing so consistently perhaps against all odds. There should be no rhyme or reason to whine.
Mine was eventful weekend though. It was good to catch up with my visiting cousins. Aaryan who was suffering from flu last week was back to his cheerful best as he kept wobbling on two tiny feet, played his drums and enthralled all of the family with a blabbering rollicking laughter.Its a great site. He doesn't mind coming to me and its ridiculously funny to tickle him and hold him close. :)
I saw Sarkar Raaj yesterday.I thought this would take Abhishek to the next level butit wasnt to be. I think the movie had to match up with Sarkaar and I think the characters did not seem to be that shaper as they were in Sarkaar.I would slot it as not bad.I think review of Sarkaar Raaj eneds a seperate post. I hope I have determination to post one more blog this week. I want to over come the laziness of not blogging and determination to blog and blog with a new vigour. It would soon be three years of blogging for me. I think I will savour that. the only regret would be not have blogged enough.
Anyways its an old story that I tend to get up real early on Sunday morning, I may sleep at 2 AM and would frustratingly get up sometimes between 6:30 and 7 in the morning and then wait for hate morning newspapers to come in and fill the void of a Sunday.Anyways there wasn't a big void as my cousins have come over and so is my grandfather.Like an endearing encompassing grandfather and I have been talking a lot daily science and mythology.There is a deep interest at both sides to inquire and tell supported by curiosity and patience.
By the way parent would be out the during sometimes next week and some freaking out ideas are already begining to take root in my brains.
It was treat to see Russians edge out perhaps the favourites Holland. Last night another favourites Italy were edged out. I was sad to see Croatia edged out though. he did well, the scorline against Protugal wasnt fair. They could have score more goals.So its Germany Russia and Spain, I think in the semis with the fourth team yet to be finalist.I wonder if it is Turkey. Anyways Euro is aired way to late. I am not sure I am very inlined to see it though.

Second Edit.

I appreciate your support at Keshi's..even though my comment was ridiculous.

I loathe being late too.
I always tell my kids "if you're not 5 minutes early, you're ten minutes late".
It not only shows consideration if you show up early, but it proves to some degree that you are fairly organized.

I am so glad to see Italy out of the competition..they are the most overdramatic 'DIVERS' in the world..
"oh my ankle Mama Mia she's a-broke!"
and then they jump off the stretcher and run back on the field...if a butterfly flutters by the entire team plummets to the ground as if a typhoon hit them!!!
Good Riddance!
