The previous day, after my hard day’s work I relaxed myself for a cup of tea as soon as I reached my room. After my usual customary things at room, I watched “Finding Neverland”, a movie based on the life of playwright JM Barie who falls in love with a widow, mother of four children. In the movie, the main hero never misses writing his journals. Every day, he would write daily journal, which ultimately made him a great playwright. At once, I made up my mind to write atleast few journals which would keep me in touch with writing and jotting down my feelings and emotions. Earlier I had tried many to write journals but failed somehow. After watching that movie, somehow I felt the importance of writing journal so that I can share my feelings with my readers, especially my children.
So here it goes my first journal today!
2nd December,Tuesday: The sun had already entered my room, whose curtains were wide open. The time was 7:30 in the morning which was quite late as compared to other days. May be because of the late night movie watching!
After ablution, I made Alu Parantha, omelette and left over mix vegetable. I left my bed unattended and went to office, but only after turning towards Nechung monastery as usual for offering. Daily one round at LTWA makes me feel satisfied spiritually!
The work at office was all same. My office is on top of Gangkyi ground and can enjoy the whole scene of Gangkyi. Around 9 everybody is back in their office except for people coming and going for other purposes. The lunch was Thukpa, which kind of suit the weather. I had two bowls. One hour lunch break was great relief after staying on the chair for few hours! Groups of people in their own friend circle were found basking in the sun and enjoying their daily dosage of gup-shup.
Days are getting shorter these days. The cold we once had has not yet come, thank God! Around 5 pm by the time office closes, I came back to my room which was heated well by the sun. A cup of tea and sweet music announced my own personal time. When the darkness spread over, I move towards my balcony to enjoy the beautiful night life of the Kotwali bazaar.
My mood was on and I made a time consuming veggie chowmein following an elaborate procedure, with soft music accompanying me in my room. I watched “Like Crazy” an English movie I recently downloaded through utorrent. It was a love story and perfectly went went with my chowmein. I could not connect to my family today and assume they were just fine.
The night was getting dearer, lights around my neighborhood were going out one by one. It was also quiet except for the occasional barks of the dogs. The eventful day comes to an end and on the other side of the world, their eventful day starts.
My journal continues then…………….
