mundane monday - # 20

have you sometimes wondered how much life changes over a few years ? or how much a few years change your life ?

about 8 years ago, i remember telling someone i didnt have much use for technology in my life. at that point, i didnt posses a pc for my use, and i had just started using a mobile phone - which was anything but smart :)

looking back, i can only ask myself, "what was i thinking" ! life indeed has changed me a lot - today i not only need to be connected, but also need to be so with my own devices, the ones which i am used to using everyday, the ones which have my own customisations, my own bookmarks. when you try to use another device for a few days, it makes you realise how powerful the force of habit is. how your fingers are so much aligned to the keys that you type without even seeing them. how it has a certain 'feel' that you are used to, that you can probably touch your device blindfolded and know its yours.

i would have never thought that i would be the person i am now, many years back. yeah, life changes you. sometimes you dont know if a change is for the better or for worse. if its a good thing or bad. but yes, you come to terms with the fact that its inevitable.

mundane monday - # 18

சிப்பியில்  தப்பிய  நித்திலமே ...

for those who cant read the words above, its a line in tamil, which is my mother tongue and one of the many languages spoken in india... 

for those who can identify that its tamil, but not fluent enough to read or understand, it reads "chippiyil thappiya nithilame" 

'nithilam' is a tamil word for pearl (in addition to the word 'muthu', which is the more commonly used one), and the full line means " (you are) the pearl that escaped the oyster". 
it is from a very famous tamil movie song from the 80's, 'andhi mazhai pozhigiradhu' - from the film 'raja paarvai'. the song itself is a very beautiful one, very romantic, and if i attempt to translate the meaning of every line, it would need a whole other post.

the monday posts in the past few weeks have become erratic, due to a lot of personal inconveniences. this particular post has been sitting inside my head for 3 weeks now ! it was seriously march madness at my end :) hope your month was better - did you enjoy 'springing' into march ? if its either year-round summer or still white winter where you live, i can empathise with you - i know how it feels :) 

hope you all have a good beginning to the month, and hopefully the posts will be more regular in the days to come - fingers crossed :) will see you soon, keep peeping in !
