WhAtTa BeGiNnIng?!


It was a pleasant morning, I could feel the warmth of the sun hitting my face. Still I cuddled up and started sleeping. I could hear Kadri Gopalnath playing a saxophone. 'Marukelara oh Raghava...', wow what a composition is that???!!! Suddenly I came back to my senses 'God! That's my ringtone, Someone calling me'. Lazily I reached for my mobile and without seeing the screen I said,

"Hello, Morning."

"Don't forget to pay fees today!" said a brisk voice. 'I know this voice. I have heard it before'

"W..W...h...o (yawn) is this (yawn again) re?"

"Still sleeping huh?! After college you have become worst shruti!", said the same voice brisk voice with a tinge of anger!

OMG!! This is dad! I woke up with a start and blinked widely at the screen!! Yes, Dad! My eyes trailed its way to the wall clock!! Again shocked. 7.30 AM!

"Yep! Sorry dad, yesterday night was writing a post for my blog. So slept lately! Will pay the fees today, thanks for reminding me"

"........."

The line went dead! Nobody was there in the other end! I finished all my works and tried a new dish and experimented it on my sister. She said it was great and I felt really elated!! I checked my to-do list, finished up all those works and came home by afternoon! Suddenly I received a call from my college mate. (I don't want to disclose the name. So lets say X). The conversation began with the pleasantries and i never know what she had in stock for me!

X : Shruti!! How are you?

Me : Hey X, what a pleasant surprise. You have called me? Usually you won't even reply to my messages!!

X : Arey, c'mon! I wanted to give you a shock.

Me : Already I was shocked after receiving your call! So tell me how is your brother and parents?

X : All are fine da! How is your dad and sister?

Me : The same here! What's the shock re?

X : You didn't check your G-mail?

Me : Naah! I didn't go online today. Feeling lazy da!! Why asking all those?!

X : Hey I got a mail from the company!

Me : Which company ma? You attended any interviews?

X : You are an idiotic crap. Your brain has become blunt. You need a sharpener eh?

(She started laughing! 'For what she is laughing? May be she called this as a joke eh? God must save her!!')

Me : Hey don't make me feel like a dumb! Tell me the matter

X : Ok... Relax..I received mail from the company we got placed! We got the DOJ yaar!! Its October 12th 2009..

'Did I hear her clearly? Was it my Date Of Joining?' I failed to hear my heartbeat! 'Did I breathe after hearing this news?' Am frantic after hearing it!! 'Yes, I got it! this is what I want!'. I heard the girl's shouting the other end

X : Hey shruti, stop dreaming and come back to reality! Ok am getting another call.. will catch you later! Bye

Without expecting my answer she had ended the call! Ahh!! I was jumping in joy. Yippee! I got my DOJ! My wait was over.. Finally the date has come. I am going to join the company. Wow! I had a nice feeling. I called my dad and told him the happy news.

He was very much excited and asked me to goto temple with my offer letter. I obliged him and went along with my sister to a nearest temple. The day was moving very greatly! I was telling myself, "I got my DOJ! Am going to put a full stop to the boredom in these 3 months after my college!". Suddenly i felt drops of water. I looked up the sky. It was bright. Suddenly I could feel rain coming down hard on my face. I closed my eyes tightly and shouted at the top of my lungs, "Hey bring umbrella, its raining heavily!". I opened my eyes when the intense of the rain subsidized!

To my horror i found my sister sprinkling waters on my face and she started giggling by the way i woke up! She asked me, "Umbrella for sprinkling water on your face?". I replied, "I thought it was raining so asked! Leave it re"

She started asking me, "Hey what happened? You were blabbering something when you were dozing. I thought of waking you up, so sprinkled water :)!"

"Was it a dream? No i got my DOJ"

My sister looked quizzically and casually remarked, "You got DOJ? Huh!! It will come only in dreams!"

Everything was a DREAM! Its a hard fact to digest, But still its the truth..

What a way to begin a day!?!

I don't know whether you liked this post of mine! But this is the dream I had today morning! So wrote it as a post! My DOJ will come only in dreams.

"Reality hurts in big time!"

With Love,

Musings of a lonely traveler said...

Hei Shruti! U made me sad with that post. I was really elated as I was reading but to the end, got dismayed. I pray that you'll get the DOJ at the earliest. :)

@aditya!!
"Sleeping only when sunshines!!"
Great re!! Then when will you get out of bed?!

Shankar said...

adi loosu..... u know what dreams are... ?? the things which we want to accomplish or things which we cant accomplish in real life..comes as a dream... to make us happy atleast whil sleeping.. I thought yu really got it... and was about to congratulate you...

you will soon get it..dont worry...

But according to abdul kalam.. dream is not something you see in sleep..dream is something which does not allow you to sleep....

I actually get very little time to dream..as i sleep only for six hours... and that time is only enough for dreamiung about games,racing etc..etc...

no time to think about the job..etc..etc... everything will come to you at right time.. god is testing ur patience...dont lose hopes..

Shruti said...
