Happy Women's Day, folks!
It's a beautiful day today.. more so because I see some clarity regarding what should be my next step (careerwise).. Had a meeting with my Manager the other day, and I must say, it was pretty fruitful.. in the sense, it helped me gauge the situation real well to make up my mind on what should my next road to travel!
I don't buy the argument to have a fixed destination in life.. was having a discussion with Hema, late in the evening yesterday about that.. it's the journey which gives me the high.. the best way I can live my life is to make my journey worthwhile..
ofcourse, I have my aims.. but the fact is that, once I make it to that, I dont tend to stop. I find myself a new aim.. and it just goes on.. Reminds me of Sr. Blossy's advice: "aim the sky, and you will reach the tree top".. but there are a lot of intermediate steps in between..u know, on the way to the sky.. which I set for myself from time to time! life would've been all too boring without them!
newys, what I was coming to, is that, this is one of those happy days when I feel totally in charge of my life.. (nopes.. um not talking abt delusions, here! not about bhangi golis/ecstasy, silly!) this is one of those days when I really feel like a hero!
On the occasion of Women's Day, pls do find sometime to read about these ACTION HEROES as well..
Have a rocking day! :)
PS: on a lighter note, wanted to share something interesting I found in a forwarded mail (from jyoti). not that I'm a male basher.. but I found the last line extremely hilarious!
Epilogue: so, we get an official mail from a lady in HR. they're planning to celebrate Women's Day in style by doing a private screening of Lage Raho Munnabhai, exclusively for the ladies in the IEC! n they promised gifts too..
yeah, obviously, before I finish reading the mail, I am on my way to there! I find a couple of friends near that hall, we grab our chairs and head in.. ok! so its work in progress.. n finally it's announced that there's a technical snag which prevents the screening! wah! kya baat he! n so the ladies decide to introduce themselves..
ok.. dont ask me what next, 'coz i just made my way out of there in disappointment.. bumped into another colleague on my way to my desk.. we grinned at each other.. "flop show!" i threw up my hands.. she said, "i know, Totally!" :D
end of story! or so I thought.. but no, it didn't, thankfully! read on..
Addendum to the Epilogue: hey!! i just went that way again (u know, d lure of gifts.. specifically, 'coz i knew that it's chocolates!!) the movie was running (though there weren't any audience) and yeah, the box of chocolates was sitting tight, right there, smiling at me.. got one pack for myself and another one for my less privileged (read men) team mates!
happy happy! :)
All's well that ends well!
hope you all had a great day too! :)
