The Question

The Question I ask myself every work day without fail is.. Should I or Should I not?.. order the iced latte with ice cream & whipped cream again. Sigh the inane questions which plague you when you work for a company which surrounds you with so much free food that you are bound find your temptress and get stuck forever in a cycle of yes & no.

Yes, this is my secret.. I think about iced latte everyday esp on days I tell myself.. "No, Sanhita you are addicted to it and it's not good for you!" Then like the teenager with the secret crush I glance at people from the corner of my eye who seem to be enjoying a very guilt free iced latte. I find myself thinking, maybe they drink iced latte every work day too and they look fine to me, quite happy if I may say so.. laughing and smiling while they take seemingly unconscious sips from the iced latte. Maybe it's not like smoking or alcohol, you can't kill yourself by drinking one iced latte everyday.

I never been on a diet in my life; the blessings of having played a sport for enough years to have developed a fast enough metabolism but if you think I am unaware of the mind games food can play with you, think again like a secret love affair it drag's you through the moments of pure pleasure & bliss which ends quickly to be followed by guilt, the pretending that there is no secret & that there is nothing to be ashamed of, and the longing in your heart when you have stayed away too long.

Sigh, it's always difficult to be in love even when it's with a iced latte.

The Pieces That Are Missing

The Pieces That Are Missing 

When emotions have run out, and your ego has gone back to its place;
When life has returned to it's humdrum, the crises stowed away.
Your heart beats the way it should and the brain is not buzzing,
That is when you will know, that there are pieces that are missing.

Not in the tears, in the drama, not even in the passionate out cries,
but in the moment when you turn the steering wheel into your drive,
When the engine is cooling down and you pause to heave a sigh.
You will know what is missing, what is stealing the pieces of your life.

When you are trying to read a book and something gets in the way,
When the television is turned on but something steals your attention away,
When you have learned to live life with dismissing laugh,
And found distractions which you probably love as much.

then you will recall the unfinished business,
the stories you left untold,
or the passion you left out in the cold,
the trip you never went on,
and the people you passed on.

Then you will know which ones mattered, the ones that always will,
Then you get up and get them, there are empty spaces to fill.

My Personality Disorder.. Ahem!

Of all the madness which resides inside my petty soul the one which drives me craziest is my desire to prepare for the worst... all the time.. naah almost all the time.. okay a lot of times! I know I know, a lot of you out there feel exactly the same way; but it's crazy even thinking you can one up life at giving surprises.. so yes as always Life has the last laugh. My friends actually say that I am a very sorted kind of person, I usually already know exactly what I wanna do which of course is natural when you spend so much grey matter drawing up life grids in your head.. now what's a life grid???

A written version of it would look somewhat like this:

(Situation 1, Person 2): (Action B, Reaction G)

But guess what happens Life gives me Situation 12001 when I have been able to think about only 12000; and bam all my life grids blow up in my face and then oh boy do I lose my bearings. My brain goes into turbo mode trying to draw up a life grid for this one but all that happens is... BURN-OUT!

Hence Advise to myself: Sometimes it's important to let go and go with the flow. To not judge, to not react, to not control, to not think but to just breathe and take in life leisurely.. like lying on the grass on a lazy winter afternoon, or warming your hands on a warm cup of tea as the rain pelts on the window panes and melts into silver drops... slowly letting life flow through you, not challenging life but letting life lead you by hand, and take joy in the many blessings which surround us always.

"God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, ie., everybody, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.”

Inspiration from the news

I find reading the news a exercise in depression but the first article I read today morning got me excited. Google's first employee is heading to Khan Academy, one of the most ingenious solutions for education & a reaffirmation of my faith in the fact that technology will probably play a huge role in solving many of the basic problems we are still struggling with such as hunger, education, population etc.

If u haven't checked out Khan Academy you must do so immediately at
