48 Years

48 years…..




I believe milk is food for infants..... and we should not eat animals.

Of course I made mistakes…… I married twice.

I tried to learn my lessons……. but I failed certain subjects.

I laughed when I was happy…. and cried when I was sad….. I still do.

God trusted me with a few cats….. but I managed to care for only four of them :-(

People have hurt me…… men have broken my heart….. I also broke a few.

I witnessed a few sunrises …… and enjoyed many sunsets.

I studied a lot……worked some……. played a little.

I have seen penguins with my own eyes….. rode in a helicopter…. and saw humpback whales in the open sea.

I walked bare feet in the beach….. I got wet in the world’s largest waterfall.

I built a snowman….. decorated a Christmas tree….. and sang Christmas carols.

I cooked ….. I burned the food….. I ate a lot…. became fat…. became thin….. became fat again.

I helped the animals…… I helped people….. animals and people have helped me.

I read…. I wrote…. I still write and read.

I climbed a mountain…… I made love in the open….. I kissed in the rain.

I have insomnia….. I like coffee….. cheese …… chocolates.

Now I live with an enlarged liver…. colitis….. divirticulites…. Duodenolites.

I cannot eat spice food anymore…. cannot drink beer nor wine :-(

I traveled in a train with chickens and pigs….. and in an airplane - executive class.

I saw wild elephants in the forest….. I recently fed a melon to one.

I dislike monkeys….. admire spider webs….. love cats and dogs.

I have learned ….. and I have taught.

I have seen people dieing…. and seen new born babies….. I witnessed an autopsy.

I loved….. I never hated.

I like to dance….. even though I am not good at it.

I don’t speak Hindi…. I don’t know how to swim.

I joined NIIT…. I met wonderful people…. to them I am an office colleagues…. to me they are family.

I don’t have family….. I am alone here.

I am learning how to use Excel…. I will have my first appraisal.

I have 400 songs in my mobile I have not yet listen to.

That is me at 48 …..
