nostalgic dashain



this view reminds me of my childhood. Specially the days around Dashain in autumn. The Annapurna range used to be clearly visible... starting early morning the panoramic view would unveil from the curtain of the mist. I felt like reaching the top while I rocked on the swing.
...
and, all of a sudden, after these many years (its been around 4-5 years), i feel like running towards my village, running to get there right now... 
and... collect the village pals to get babiyo from Seti river cliff... get the Saal or Bamboo stem, the Linge Ping, the treat at the evening, the full night hangouts in the open air, jungle walk to the neighbouring villages under the full moon...
and all that i miss.

a lizard's tale-tail

... i finished 'Unaccustomed Earth' by Jhumpa Lahiri today around 2am. it was good, initially i found it very interesting but later i felt the monotonous unaccustomed-ness in it now and again. i liked Lahiri's style of weaving mundane issues in an interesting way.
...but it doesn't always gives me a pint of joy as i finish reading... as i'm burdened with loads of work these days. a desire to retreat sometimes fills me with a sense of guilt. thats bad. work hasn't been just work - its been almost everything that i do all day.  i dont like this.
...
i've to finish a project - its been lingering since 3 months - and its still not done - & that sucks too.
i'm trying to get over it soon, soon = a day or two and then it will feel good to breath easily... (unless anything new comes up - which always does)
