~~~ Ain't No Sunshine~~~

So, I am in the city of Nizams.. The city where I fell in love again and again. The city where I first learnt the meaning of being independent.The city where I understood love, loss, heartbreak, joy, hurt, friendship..

I reached Dilli yesterday jet lagged and tired. After some family time I boarded the flight today morning to Hyderabad.Everything looks different in the office. Even though I went to my same old cubicle everything about that floor is different now.The wall color is the same, the set up is the same, the cubicles are just the same.The only thing different - Faces!

Well, even though I never talked to everyone, I never exchanged smiles or a passing gaze. Yet there was a sense of familiarity then which is clearly missing now.There was always a silent acknowledgement ( Oh yeah I know you!!!). An ocassional nod while thanking them for holding the door.

I just saw new faces today. Everywhere. It was different. A lot of the memories came rushing back.
Yes, in all honesty I was kind of prepared for this.It was good meeting some old chums. The thought that I would be jobless soon is a bit unsettling. Now, is really the time when I want to get involved in work,take my mind off things and be more tough than emotional..

I think I will do fine..! That's what everyone keeps telling me.. All I want to do is turn and tell them.. "What if I want to be more than fine..?"
My German friend messaged me:

Miss Awasthi,
I am not good with 140 characters.. So I am just going to write you this..
"Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away"


With love,
C.B
P.S: The weather is actually bad today. You live up to the name.. "Lil Miss Sunshine"

So I replied:

Miss German Frau,
140 characters would not have been enough for me. I want more .. I am greedy!:)
So, whenever you think of me mail me and let me know!

It was really sweet to see her email in the evening. I was quite charged after reading it..It feels good to know that someone somewhere is thinking of you.
I need to end this here and hit the bed! The Jet lag is still bothering me.
Before I turn in to a Zombie..
Ciao..
P.S: The song is by Bill Withers.
I love this song and I really mean it when I write this here...
You probably don't listen to any of my songs.Listen to this.You will know exactly what I mean..
"Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away"


Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away"
