The Evening Silence

“  bikhri-bikhri si julfein hain kyun..

khoyi-khoyi si aankhein hain kyun… 

ghum ka ye pal guzar jaega… 

fir koi humsafar aaega…”

– from the movie What’s Your Rashee

A soothing vocal with heart touching music and lyrics playing in background; adding grace to the silence which I’ve chosen to spend my evening with. Once I’m back from office, it’s usually only me and my loneliness. The only companion I’ve after I enter my house is my T.V. and FM radio. They not just entertain me but also make me lethargic. Once I get refreshed, I make myself a cup of tea, grab some snacks and quickly slip into my blanket with TV remote and phone. After spending some lazy moments, I force myself after an hour or so to get up and cook something for dinner and the lazy me (courtesy Bangalore weather) keeps procrastinating. All my determination and plan to cook healthy and nice dinner and then sleep early goes in vain. I end up cooking or eating at a time when I should have hit the bed. The ideal eating and sleeping pattern goes for a toss. I get frustrated and really count no. of hours I will be sleeping when I go to bed between 00:00-01:00 hours!!😣😴

For a change, today I really started cooking at odd hours of evening, i.e. 19:00 hours which generally used to be Tea-time!! Well, that’s how maverick I am. I surprise myself to at times! One of my colleagues had told me once that I’ve bi-polar personality traits!! And his conclusion was based on my frequent mood swings, easy irritability etc. etc. how absurd was that!! 😎

I came late today from office, courtesy the last day of monthly data submission which made last minute following up with few pending departments to send their data so that I can collate and send them to my Central Team.  Was stuck in office till 18:45 hours and then finally called it a day. While I reached my house, I chose not to switch on TV or FM Radio which on most of the evenings I used to do. It was a house with complete silence. Something incited me to start cooking for an early dinner. And thankfully I heard the voice and not my monkey mind which always discourages and procrastinates my plans. And so that’s how I cooked and had an early dinner and how I found some time to write this post! I felt happy! I felt good after doing this! 😃

It’s a random post!! Random words!!🤗
