Delhi Diaries

Finally, I got the time and energy to return.This is a long overdue post, but, better late than never.
Life in Delhi is a rollercoaster.I have literally been ‘on-my-toes’ since the day I landed here.But, it is not what I had imagined it to be. Sometimes, I feel it is much much better and sometimes I feel I shouldn’t have taken the decision to relocate.I still am not at peace with myself, as there are n number of things disturbing my equilibrium.
There are moments when I am really really happy and moments when I am really really sad. Somehow, I have not been able to attain a balance between the extremes yet.Life is changing every single day.Maybe it is the ‘Dilli’ factor or maybe, personally, I am at such a point in life.Or is it the quarter-life-crisis? I don’t know, I really don’t.
Happiness comes in splashes.I am happy when I see an invitation to the Annual-Day dinner , at my college and the fact that I can plan to go (Every year, I received the invitation and got sad about not being able to attend), I am happy when I feel the cold winds, the temperature dripping. I am happy when I  eat(anything and everything), I am so happy when I shop, I am happy for friends who have found love and for those too, who’ll soon be entangled in wedlock.I am happy with the fact that I can catch a train home, anytime I want and still it would not cost me 10K bucks.I am happy when I have gol-gappe instead of pani-puri which sucked big time.I am happy that the weather keeps changing.I am happy that I am within easily approachable distance from near and dear ones.I am happy that Delhi still rocks! I am happy that I took the decision to come back.I am happy that Delhi is a second hometown for me.I am just plain happy.
But, letting go, has never been my cup of tea and I always cling to people and things I love.This was supposed to be my world,and now that finally I have made it my own, I sometimes really miss the one which I have left behind.And then, I again need one of those splashes of happiness to bring me to the real life.Thankfully, someone or the other sprinkles those on me and I am back to being my chirpy self!:)

  3. Life's exactly this.. happiness and sadness both will be there no matter where the place is. the victory lies in overcoming the toughs and you are doing it girl, everytime. Happiness is yours at the end. and they will be yours always. What more do we need when we have people to sprinkle elixirs on us. πŸ™‚

    Cheers πŸ™‚

  4. quarter life crisis? Are you already 25? πŸ˜›
    Kids these days grow fast, like a weed, don't they? πŸ™‚

    Change is discomforting. Try to be content with what you currently have. Those who really matter and care for you will always be there…even the nerds! Distance doesn't matter.

    Take care. And find sometime to write!

  5. That's the toughest part or relocating back.. isn't it. Looking back at the pictures of those good old days in your mind… makes you think … was it worth it. But I think you have decided for yourself.. it has been worth it!!! Good…

    Hoping to see some good old exciting type posts by the same Akanksha who stared this blog!!!

  6. A blogger friend once mentioned it in her posts, that life screws you and you get upset. It would be better if you had sex with it (read: made love to it). Only pleasures, no hassles with life as such.
    Life's unfair sometimes, but then there are good times just in the wings. Hope they come to you soon enough, and stay safe.
