The end of an Era

I moved in to a new flat last month. It's right on the main road. For the past one month, there has never been a quiet awake moment. It's either the loud share autos, or the blaring Pondi buses or the never ending two wheeler crowd...you get it.
But today, as I was sitting in my favourite spot in my room, looking out of the window, I noticed, that one side of the road was filled with vehicles moving away and the other side completely empty. Not a single vehicle, not even a bike coming towards my side. And I noticed that striking resemblance it had to my present life, however cliched that sounds.
Today is a bad bad day. So was yesterday. Sukdi left yesterday. Monk-ey has been relocated. Bhai will leave this month.
This is a bad bad month.
I've been losing my friends for the past one year. One by one, they left; some from the city, some from my life. And there haven't been anyone coming my way. And now suddenly, my best friend, Monk-ey too; and so soon.

I haven't moved out of Chennai; I won't, for a long time. But Chennai, whatever part of it I had come to love, is slowly fading away.

Good to see you blogging after what seems like ages.

Life does come up with lows, but don't worry, for the highs will follow.

Divya,

Life is like a flowing river. It keeps changing. So do our companions. We should keep fond memories and get on with life. We do keep in touch with old friends even if they move away and it is such a pleasure. Hope you like the new place. What are you upto these days?

Take care

Hey Divya,

This is life, just try telling yourself the fact that your friends are going for their good and that should cheer you up a little. At the end of the day it is their life as well. Cheer up mate. Nothing is bad, its just the way we take it. :)

Keep Blogging!!!

Life cometh a circle, and change - as you well know - is part of life.

I am sure you will not let your ebullient self ebb away just like that.

Peace. Be well.

a familiar phase in life... felt it while working, while I was immersed in it.. it will pass but.

Surya said...

But you watched all those happenings from the favourite spot of YOUR room no...

Once systems are systems, systems may get packed up itself later.... So now pl watch, see the traffic of the other side which was empty before...
These implications are also qualified to get related to your present life!
Get composed yourself!

Cheer up, You have learnt another important lessons of life.

This is wishing for you, that may you have enough opportunities that will give you immense joy and a sense of......... like when you close your eyes and your face is illuminated by the flicker of a beautiful smile. May you have enough things cross your path that make you smile to yourself and light up your days. There will be times that you will feel like hugging the entire Universe. Make sure you identify it. Revel in it. May your work adore you and may you adore the work you do. May you be loved. Totally. Completely. By the entire Universe.
