How do you take a Decision?

November 5, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

There are very few things that I can do alone in life. Travelling is one of them.

This Diwali, I had planned to go home even after Bachcha (who usually accompanies me on home trips) backed out. I got the tickets and was really proud of my decision. I would be meeting all by cousins after a long long time! Though I would be staying at home for 3 days, it would be real fun. I had planned some surprise for my sisters who were pestering me for gifts. So many plannings…

And then came this fateful day. My train leaves tomorrow night. And all of a sudden, all the professors of IIT Madras seem to have gone against me. I have a viva which may happen any day now, some assignments which are due on various days, all during my absence and I have urgent Design works!


Here I am thinking whether or not I should get my tickets cancelled. And for this, I have this night (my train leaves tomorrow), when I am supposed to complete 3 lab reports and 2 assignments. I would have easily packed all this work had I been younger in IIT Madras. But this is my 5th semester and my CGPA is below what’s required for a stipend in my 9th semester. And I have to work to raise it.

I was never very attached to my home. But since last couple of years, I feel good when I meet the people there. Change was happening. So this Diwali was going to be very exciting for me. But perhaps I will have to say goodbye to all those plans, to change. This is the third time I felt that a poet’s work may come back to mock him.
