Falling To Rise

And then you fall and then you rise
This fight is not for all but the wise
There is anxiety and there is grief
There is work to do in time brief
There are tiny but trillion thoughts
And inside you, your mind rots
There is failure but there is hope
And you can do without dope
There is loneliness but there is love
One day you'd see the white dove
Tough times many will come on your way
But "all for good" in the end you'll say
You would have many, not one choice
But always hear your own inner voice
I am not far but inside you somewhere
For one reason that you are here.
And then you fall and then you rise
And then you learn of this life's disguise.

This is NOT an original post. This poem is by Arnab Ghosh. I loved it so much that I decided to re-post it with his permission. I loved this poem cos its so much full of realities and still has so much hope in it.
Hope you guys enjoy it too, let me know!!

The story so far....!!!

Few of things before that....

  1. Yes, I do plan to continue this blog.
  2. I will write the part 2 of the Leh trip, nonetheless months later and though nobody read the 1st part, anyway.
  3. I have a bunch of other stuff drafted but never finished and posted, hope still remains I will do that some day.
  4. I know the project “50 days Pune” did NOT work out and I am todally bummed because of that but I will be back in Pune again someday and complete the project. Thanks for the support guys but life got so crazy that I just could not get it done.

Now, the story so far...

  1. The place I called home “9, Padam Appartments” is no longer mine and I left Pune on 10th Aug.
  2. The journey was quite eventful till Mumbai but thankfully pretty mundane then after.
  3. Reached Boston safely and had lot of fun meeting people at Boston.
  4. Stayed with friends for few days and the reception was heart warming.
  5. Moved to hostel couple of days back.
  6. All settled in the dorm and seems like a fun place.
  7. Classes began today (pre-MBA) and the class is totally awesome.
  8. Looking forward to getting busy with course work to take my mind off from missing Pune, friends and family.

Unpacking was the toughest part. It had a sense of permanency to it and that felt scary. Past trips to the US were always short and there was ‘homegoing’ to look forward to... There is no going back now.. There is no place to go back to... Its all ahead of me from here...

But there is always hope.. Hope to make new friends - like old ones, to make this place home and have even more rocking time here....!!! Herez to the (to-be) home and more good times!!!
