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,
"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?
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!"
