Life in a METRO....

....has been about travel, travel and some more travel.

I have been living out of a suitcase for more than a month. And since this travel is undertaken all alone, it gets very, very boring at times. The learning curve is very steep. And that counts more than anything else!
Personally, it has dawned on me that I will have to live alone for some time to come. It does help that one of your siblings lives in the same vicinity as you do in a new city. Since my roommate, my office colleagues and friends are the same set of people, it helps to get away and spend some time with someone who knows you since birth!

Also realised that I have, more or less, been out of sync with friends from home. And hence I suddenly find myself completely on a new base to build new and hopefully more long lasting friendships! I alsways questioned the rationale of long term relationships and in my case I have been proved right as far as friendships are concerned.

But life must go on and it will.....


  1. That reminds me of a quote by W. Somerset Maugham - “It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it."

    Not every relation lasts. But it is important to know what is worth holding onto and to make efforts accordingly.
