My previous post was about Tag. There was a question as following
37. A word that you say a lot?
Nothing A LOT, but sometimes God or at times Sh**
For which my Engineering college friend, Shweta commented about my very old or should I say ancient habit of saying “Matlab”. I remember once we, all friends were back from college to home. It used to be one hour journey, pretty long. All of a sudden, my friend Reena said “You know Megs, tum bahot matlabi ho”. It struck me, &I went into thoughts what I have said that made her say this.
“Why, what happened, What have I done ?”, I asked puzzled, embarrassed.
She chuckled. “You always keep adding Matlab Matlab when you talk, so you are a matlabi”. They laughed. I sighed. That was true, I was bad at communicating, I was little reserved(maybe Shwets can tell if it’s true). To add to my chagrin, she renamed my name to Matlabi in her cell, how rude :(
But now when I look back, It amuses me to think how much I have changed. We all change. Few days back, a blogger friend, Tarun wrote a poem Left Alone which was very good, introspective but a sad and little depressed, wherein he confessed in comments how immature he was and that he’s changed much over the years.
There are so many things we loved, we hated, we avoided, we supported. And not many things fall in the same place now. At every juncture, we had different feelings and some of them makes us smile even now. There are few songs that makes me travel behind time to experience moments, making me nostalgic.
And now that we are living in our present which would be our past in future, when we would think of how we lived today. So taking lessons from my Matlabi nostlagic jabber, I end this post with a positive note,
Make Present better for future...You’d like to smile when you look back
What’s say you ?
P.S. Tarun, hope you don't mind the reference. I’d like writing this post. Thanks Shwets for that comment, brought old memories back :)
