Note: – This is a rather serious post.
Those who know me, “in person”, will always say, “Santosh is a person with whom acquaintance is more than enough.” Some think, I don’t know what does it mean by relationship. The only relation I know of is I, me and myself.
The last time I cried, in front of many people, was when my sister was married. After that no one has seen me crying. Now I am a grown up man and grown-ups don’t cry.
Here is the story of my loneliness.
One day I told my partner, Darling I want something of our own. My partner said with a grin “I was thinking of the same”. From that moment we started. We used to stay awake at night working towards our goals. And after long nights of awakening and sweating, There she was in front of us. The cutest thing we have ever seen. I called her Happiness (Khusi) and my partner called her time pass. She was the cutest thing I have ever seen. I used to play with her. She was my love. I knew her much better than any one else.
Wait a sec!!! Why am I calling using “Was” every time. It’s because she is more. She is dead. It was my mistake. One night I forgot to close the window of her room. It rained heavily that night and by morning she was counting her last breath. I called the doctor he also tried no avail. She was gone forever. My partner was shouting at me and I was just listing. It was loss so many thing. Than my partner came and said “I told you to make a back up of your hard disk. But why would do it. Now go to hell. I can’t make another game.”
P.S.-> I wanted to write a really serious post (as I was feeling really low) but after the first two para my mood got the better of me and I made up a story to match up with my mood.
How can you lose money and still be happy. Donâ€™t know!! Ask me. I have doing the same for past few months now.
I been losing a big chunk of my money and I am not even complaining. Some of you may think that I am spending my money on either of these: –
3. Drinking (liquor, I do but once in a full moon)
4. Shopping (Yet to become a husband)
5. Smoking (trying to quit)
Itâ€™s not because of any of my bad habit, even if I have them. Its been taken away from me before I can get my hand on it. I was so shocked when they took it away for the first time. I went I asked them why are you taking my hard earned money from me. And they said you are earning too much so we are here to take a percentage of your money from you. For this we have talked to your company and they are to provide me with a percentage of your money.
For those who donâ€™t know I have been earning this money with loads of pain. I have to sit on a revolving chair for 8 hours at stretch (excluding coffee and lunch breaks) doing what ever I wish to do, including chatting, blogging and surfing whole day.
I wont allow them to take that money from me. So I asked them how not to get them taking money from me. â€œ Thou shalt invested in Mutual funds, NSC, PPF, PF shalth you wishth to save some earnings!!!â€ (You shall invest in (all this crap) if you wish to save your earning)
I am talking about the Income deduction done by the company as TDS. The person taking away my money is Income Tax department of India. So I have to invest my money of I donâ€™t want to pay tax. Thus I have to live a life of pauper either way. Pay the IT guys and get less income or invest the money in as to save tax and still stay pauper.
Nothing endures but change.
I am a firm believer of the above said quotation. Following which I tried to walk (or is it run) on the following quote. â€œStart everyday as a new self!â€ I never knew I would be in so much trouble because of my new self. Want to know how?
On Monday I was a new self to the office so was on Tuesday and so on. This led to a new problem in my office about who is the true me. As there was 1 different me for each day of the week. My PM (Project manager for non technical people) sent a mail to all 5 of us for just coming one day to office in a week. The reply we all sent was.
This is to notify you that I become a new self every day. It was done for the good of the company as you can hire one person who comes as 5 different people and take the salary of just one person.
It is good for me too. I can ask one of the other my colleague to lend me some money and by changing myself the next day I can keep the money with myself.
It would be a good opportunity for you to know a better (or worst) me as I come to office by changing to myself.
Many new self of Me.
The problem could have stopped here but I found myself on the road as the company wanted a permanent employee who did the same work every day than a guy who cant be relied to be the same the very next day?
The last time I wrote the following topic it was just a casual conversation. Soon it turned out that people actually compare me with different animals. One day one of my colleagues told me that the other day he saw my true copy. I (out of curiosity) asked him, â€œwhere?â€ He told â€œin Krishna temple. Even though he looked like you they were calling him the temple elephant.â€
This got me thinking â€œam I the only human who imparts the animal behavior?â€ thus it came to me all the word told to me by people in my entire life.
My dad â€“ â€œKeep on roaming like a street dogâ€ (when he found that instead of going to school I was playing with my friends)
My mom â€“ â€œ You eat like a pigâ€ (I used to feed the table more than myself)
My Brother â€“ â€œYou monkey?â€ (After I tore off his assignment book)
My Teacher â€“ â€œParrot also learns better than youâ€ (Thanks to my brains)
My hostel warden â€“ â€œYou sleep more than a horseâ€ (after I missed the school for one whole)
My Room Mate â€“ â€œA rattle snake makes less noise than youâ€ (after he heard me snoring)
My Friends – “Leech” (Leaving them after making them spend all their pocket money on me)
My Boss – “A donkey is better than you” (he wants me to works 8 hours a day.)
My EX-GF â€“ â€œYou can beat any bear in body hair competitionâ€ (this made me lose all my hair on the head)
Note: This is a true conversation, which took place behind the back of lots of people.
Today I was in company cab coming down to office when it started to rain. I asked one of my colleague,
Me: What does it mean when it rains and sun is also out?
He: I donâ€™t know!
Me: it means that somewhere a hyena is getting married!
He: do animals get married?
Me: ok tell me, are human being animal?
Me: do humans marry?
He: (he a bit skeptical) but humans are better than animals.
Me: Yes or no?
Me: you know humans are the only animals, which are compared with different animals
He: prove it?
Me: when one drinks too much people call him/ her dog!
He: whatâ€™s wrong with it?
Me: have u heard any dog called as human?
Me: when a human is drink a lot and falls in a gutter people call him Pig!
Me: when one is really silent and saintly people call him/her a cow
Me: do you know what do people call a person like you who has got fat all over (including brain)
He: do you what do people call when some one acts like a monkey?
End of conversation
