Life in its shortest

13th Sep ’07, I was very excited… I was going home after 15 long days. this was my second visit home after I came to iitm and my first travel alone. The train was at 9 30pm. I had got a seat in ladies quota. first thing I noticed when I took my seat was that all others in my compartment were talking in kannada. I felt happy to hear Kannada after a long time. I started chatting with other girls in the train. We chatted as if we knew each other since a long time. We talked about everything…work, studies, family…… we talked.. laughed… spent a few happy hours before sleep. By the time we woke we were in Bangalore.. we parted not knowing whether we meet again in life.

I felt that this is ‘ life in its shortest’… In life we meet so many people… spend nice moments with them and finally one day we leave never to come back again.

Hey great babe!! You finally started a blog !
@ the post -
True, life is such. Rashmi Sarnaik's grandmother once told me tht there's a saying in Sanskrit - " Like logs of wood in a sea, we drift through life, meeting people, staying with them for a while, till a wave comes, taking us apart from each other". But, as Karthik very aptly added to it - we might drift apart, but, if we want, we can swim. So, if Life- you drift away - but, there are some for whom, it is worth swimming - even against the current, just to stay together.

I have been a lone traveler many times. Each time I wonder how people connect and how they part. Strangers become friends in a flash and part as strangers again in this strange journey of LIFE !

So happy to see ur blog :)
