I am getting old....

Life is long. Hopefully...

Sometimes minutes feel like months and months feel like minutes...

When you feel minutes are like months then you are living your life.....

When you feel months are like minutes then you are living some life.....


It is time to accept I am getting old.

Officially I turn 26 today . Now birthday is a nice time to give all the offers . Along with all the official wishes and umpteen wishes from the 500+ friends in Orkut , I got an offer from my share broker and umpteen other sites .If you want to test , search in Orkut and have a Dekho.

Shhh... Iam a Cancerian and turn 26 only in June sometime , you are not supposed to share the secret with anyone.Since I was a pest who made a lot of noise and threw tantrums in chilhood , both my parents didnt want to leave me alone at home when they went to work in their file filled Kerala Govt. offices. I was enrolled early in KG so that I will write crap like this as soon as possible . I was among the youngest in my school, college and B school.Looking back on the day of the official birthday ....

These will be the typical musings that I mused about on all birthdays and since this is the day in which I am technically completing quarter century along with all you miserable and nice people in this world, think I need to make the musings special.
  1. I need to intensify my efforts in growing a moustache. Tired fo people calling me "Mone.."(Child) in Kerala.It is time to convince them that I have completed quarter century in this big bad world.
  2. I need to intensify my efforts in growing a moustache.Tired of all those people who are giving me that look like "Yeh Bacha Yahan Kya Kar Raha Hein" in official meetings.It is time to convince them that in our field bright ideas come from young minds.
  3. I need to intensify my efforts in planning my finances. Money suddenly doesn't seem to be as important a motivating force as I thought in childhood. There are so many other things is life that matter more than money which make minutes feel like months.But others do not seem to understand and ask me why my bank balance is always zero.
  4. I was not a kiddish kid and got bored of lego blocks , snake and ladder and bicycle very easily.I was not a typical teenager and didn't care much about what other teenagers cared. The trait of getting bored soon is following me throughout my life.
  5. As a part of becoming really serious about life ,I have started becoming more serious and is analysing the marketing of Malayala Manorama instead of writing about intersting things like this that would have been more popular among non serious people like me who read this blog which has a name Nariyal Chutney of all the names in the world.
  6. Last time I was in Kerala my uncle who was educated in Bangalore asked me to take less beer and he didnt believe that I am a Vodka fan. Signs of a prosperity too early in life :(.
  7. At this stage of bachelor life and the moment in which I am completing quarter century, I think it is difficult to settle down with a single girl . Very Bad that my parents do not seem to understand and I have to fake the feeling of being the stupidest guy in earth to my prospective fathers-in-law !
  8. As a special offer to all the girls on my birthday I decided that I will be neutral towards the first good looking girl who is hot and smiles at me. The first girl who smiled at me got back a neutral look and I got back a look like "what an ass?"!!
  9. not worth mentioning in a public blog....
  10. Everything else is censored.
Every birthday is a mute witness that testifies with time that somebody is getting old but ....

My bones are getting old by one more year and distance to death has reduced by one more year .

But Stilll....I dont want to get oldddddddd.....

Trust me! Your parents have chosen the best available day to be your official birthday :p Today is the world book day too, for one.

And you can always think that you are not as old as you think, on this day. Guess, I should officially wish you good for stealing my b'day! :) Enjoy the day!

Happy Birthday and how did u celebrate it?

About you intensifying your efforts in growing a moustache.... even i had the same thoughts until two years back. I'm 28 and still have no facial hair. I had a tough time like you said when i was in south india but as i moved to central india and then back to bangalore i figured out that girls are not that gung ho about their guys having too much facial hair. That made me feel good. Now i enjoy the "Yeh Bacha Yahan Kya Kar Raha Hein" looks in official meetings and also the "Which college?" questions very much.

NC,

"meesha" is an issue... :P

Getting bore easily is good provided you have something or the other which always makes you feel bored. :D

Ajith said...

Belated b'day wishes.. And yeah, any more positive results from the neutral look towards girls ? :)

youth is when you just cant wait to grow a moustache. Middle age is when you see that moustache greying - and realise you are getting older, and wish time would stand still. Old age is when you stop caring about the moustache and live every precious moment.
Happy Birthday, NC, and dont be in a hurry about moustache or anything else !! Life's good. Every year. every moment.
