People who know me would agree that I am a very practical person… I like reasoning things out, I don’t really react on impulse and I always judge a situation before I come to a conclusion. But if there’s one thing that I just cant come to terms with, then it is CHANGE. ‘Change’… it’s such an eerie, bizarre event which takes place in everyone’s life… I mean, why do things and people have to change? Why can’t everything just remain the way it is…? But the truth is… things change, people change…. and all we can do is watch helplessly, as time engulfs us and churns out different situations in our lives… yes, changes happen without us even realizing, and by the time we realize, it is too late to change the change!!
And like all changes I dread, there’s one more thing that changed in my life…. And that is our very own Writer’s Lounge… agreeably, I was never the most active member on the Lounge so I ideally don’t have a say in this, but I definitely am one of the oldest members on the Lounge… and somehow it’s hard to see that most of the people I shared my lounge experiences with are nowhere in the picture now… It was like zip zap zoom… and everything changed!!
The Lounge has got lovely talents right now, like always… And am more than glad to see all the new members doing so well… but I miss my old pals like crazy… Asbah… Priyanka… Shruti… The Lover.... where are you guys? Life’s just not going to be the same without these people around… and however hard it may be to accept, I know that those good old times are never going to come back.
Most of the people deal with change well…. Some don’t… and I am one of them. I still haven’t accepted this change and I don’t know how long it will take for me to accept it. But then, as someone rightly said… “Change is the only constant thing in life”… People change, things change…. and so does life!!!
