Reflections

There used to be a time in life when things were all about me..

I still remember my 10th, I had a ball of a time at tutions and in class with nary a worry but the distant boards…

And then when the results came though there were no flying colours; though none of them was black either…

And so i continued with my happy go lucky life..i was so happy and believed myself so lucky that i nearly flunked my 11th… If not for my pristine record as a good student(yea i was a good student in the distant past) i would have had to do a repeat performance..

And unlike movies..i really dont think one should do a repeat with ones 11th…so now u would think i learned my lesson…

Oh NO !! 12th was yet another round of merrymaking..involving myself in all the ego clashes with the worthless set of boys( yea they r still worthless as far as i am concerned)and what nots…

Looking back I see a life most of you must have led…great parents,cool friends and superb school the only downs would probably be, that flunked maths paper(for me it was quite frequent)……

And college for me was no different..and yea I got rid of those boys by going to an all girls coll..yet again it was more fun and games for me..during the first few months in college I realized that there was more to the city I was brought up in than I realized….aaahhhh..those were the days…yet deep within me..i knew…despite everything, I am but a selfish product of my upbringing..OH NO, my folks did the best they could..made me go to church , taught me right from wrong..the works…

when did I change?? what made me look into myself ..i dont know..but I do remember the day Jithin came to coll with his long talk and even longer presentation(yea..he used to do it then too)and now u might think I joined for the heck of it..but here guys, you are wrong..

MAD just was there when I most needed it… The fact is by the second year, I wanted more out of life and I dont mean more of window shopping and hours at coffee shops gossiping..

I wanted more from life..and more importantly..i wanted to do something in life…and MAD helped me take that step..

The more I have thought of my family and the way I was brought up..i was more aware of how much those kids on the streets missed out on…

And time and again I have thought..and still think ,it is our duty and responsibility as human beings to give them a helping hand..

Its not through any virtue of ours we are born to our folks, nor their fault they are born to theirs..its perhaps the quirk of fate(if u believe in such drivel)..but the point remains…we should do what we must..my question is…are you doing what u should?

Oh I wont say I am a great person now..i am still that selfish girl who loves to have fun and hang out .Yet along with all this I am aware and I am doing my duty..

And this gives me peace..and hope ..hope that some day I shall be a better person than now…..
