Life here...

is ok as of now... There is no specific reason for being away. Its just that I have been caught in the daily routine of cooking, cleaning, rushing to work, back home, weekend chores, shopping groceries, washing etc.. And ofcourse in between something or the other important keeps popping up to take away the rest of my time.. But overall its still better. I get up early in the morning around 6:15... Much as I love coming back home in the evening when the sun is still out, I hate to drag myself out of my cosy bed early morning when the sun is hardly visible.

I am eating almost 4 meals contrary to just two previously...My health has improved (read: I have gained weight)... I have not experienced any upset stomach for the past couple of months, which I am quite happy about. But the weight gain is bothering me now. I guess its because of the increased number of meals, good weather and improved digestion that I have gained weight. I need to get back to exercise(jogging), which I find extremely difficult to start all over again, given the fact that I am tired at the end of the day and too lazy to get up earlier than 6:15 in the morning.. But I shall find a way out.. May be control my diet...

The weather has been generally nice ever since I came here. Its because I landed up during monsoons and I have not experienced the scorching sun since then. Thats typical Pune.. Once it starts raining, the temperature goes down to 20s and remains at that level atleast for few months, which is such a blessing. Also I am saved from the skin burning heat and humidity which is killing. I dont even use the fan during the nights since its so pleasant. But yeah, I am going to miss the lovely winters of North India.. Sometimes it becomes unbearably cold, but still I love the mist, fog and the idea of curling up in the bed under a warm rajai.. I am from Dehra Dun after all.. A trip can be planned during that time to North India to experience it, so that part is also taken care of.. :-)

Currently I am staying in a rented house in a nice society. The house is quite spacious, airy and brightly lit. It has a lot of cheerfulness. Its nice living here except that I get to use only one bathroom, since the other one is locked, though I was promised that I shall get to use both and I pay the rent for the whole house - but thats a different story which needs to be handled separately. moreover, I am not going to be here for a very long time. The society has a nice view. My neighbours are friendly and warm, specially my next door neighbour who are a young couple. The girl keeps checking on me regularly, in case I need any help and I am doing fine. The best part about the society is the view. I can see some of the mountains and and and... Since I live very close to the airport, I get to see the flying jets.. No not the commercial jets... The air force station is closeby. so I get to see those fighter jets flying regularly.. My love for armed forces, is no secret.. so when I discovered that from every window and specially the balcony, I can see the jets taking off, it just made me happy.. I have seen night flying as well.. The great ball of fire on their tails is a sight to be seen... There is a sudden adrenalin rush when you see those jets take off.. My heart skips a beat...

I am yet to find a music class where I can start my guitar lessons again.. I have started driving my two wheeler again after a long gap of 4.5 years. Now its the car which gets a step-brotherly/motherly/sisterly treatment. Parking is a big nuisance in this city and its easy to whizz around on my kinetic.. The occasional shopping, eating out has also happened and shall continue, which is nice. The weekends are still lonely.. On most of the weekends, one would find me sitting by the window and gazing outside somewhere in the space, lost in my own thoughts. No social life even now. Most of the people, I knew here have moved out. Some have got married and are busy with their own family lives.. But I have no complaints. I go out whenever I want to. Or like always, I am sitting at home, watching some movie. I still dont have the cable connection and dont even feel the need to have one. Why unnecessarily spend on idiot box when there is no one to watch it. Like always, I look forward to Fridays when I know that two full days are ahead of me when I dont have to bother about getting up early. So I sleep a lot on weekends. Thats pretty much about how life is moving on currently in Pune.. More to come soon...
