I am a typical freelancer. I never really delivered on time, I can’t remember a time I delivered everything on time. Luckily, I never had to work on time critical projects where the whole world would blow up if I wouldn’t deliver.
Fun is overrated. It always has been and always will be. I think people do everything because it is fun. Sometimes its fun while doing it, sometimes its an insurance for fun in the future, and again sometimes we do things just to make sure that they don’t stand in the way of having fun at some point in the future.
People keep asking me this question, What do I do for fun. And it got me thinking. Truth is am not doing anything for fun. I don’t go out on weekends doing fun stuff like hobbies or traveling. I don’t stand in line to see a movie or hangout with my friends every now and then. In many ways there is no fun at all.
We had a good run, and now the time has come for me to say good bye and move on. We both knew this day would come, unlike what they say in the movies, I deserve better.
I will always remember the sleepless bloody nights where you served me with the best of your mosquitoes. You never left me in the cold, you always made me warm, a bit too much, even in December. You played music with all those traffic on the streets, the honking and the rush, boy! you know what you are doing. You filled my heart with the fragrance of the streets, how could I ever forget you?
Even when everything is going great, sometimes, haven’t you felt there is something missing? Like the time when someone forgot to add a tinge of salt to that otherwise yummy chicken leg?
I have a habit of developing tools that help myself out of situations in life that I might have to face again. Like this one for the times when I don’t know what to do. And this one when I feel really really down.
I loved cycling since my school days, I used to go long distances right when I had my first bicycle, well at that time a 4 km trip around the town seemed long and there was the thrill of breaking the rule set by parents which stated that the town was off limits for me 😛
When I was in high school I used to do 15 km spells now and then and last March I brought my bicycle to Cochin doing an awesome 38.7 kilometres in 2 hours. I wasn’t hoping to see me up and walking the next day, but surprisingly 39 kms didn’t touch me anywhere. I wanted more.
2011 was an awesome year for me, and I wanted to do something legendary to end the year and cycling challenge topped my list. So this 31st, me and my friend Tison Philip, we decided to go cycling to a city called Alleppey.
