Tidy-up the desk!

Some days are special indeed. They come once in a while. You feel like fresh from the heart. The brain works like a 'defragmented' PC.. no troubles, what so ever :) the hard disk in the brain spins smooth, if there is one!!
The heart comes forward, places a beautiful smile on the way; fell like greeting everyone at any corner; and brings you to tidy up the desk; to be more organized; to be proactive; ticks-off almost every thing in the to-do list...! It's hard to find a reason for that wonderful day. Some time its better not to think about it, but to live and enjoy the great day :).. and today is one of those awesome days and I did enjoyed the whole!!

Yet another journey with out the Passport!!

Successfully crossed the sea... across the German border... in to Denmark... and finally, boarded the train to Aarhus! No one will ever come after this and ask me, "May I see your passport, sir?". Oh, this is the second time am doing this; and never been caught for traveling out side Denmark with out the passport which keeps me away from remembering to take my passport out from the closet while packing my stuff for the travel. Hell with my memory. I would say, its also because of a typical Indians mindset, 'passport is for flights' and here in Europe, very often you will travel across countries by bus or the train as I did later and now.

The first time, it was to Den Haag, The Netherlands. We were about 50 people traveling by bus from Aahus to Den Haag, a month ago to take part in a demonstration organized in front of the International criminal court (ICC), demanding the ICC to initiate investigations against war crimes committed by the Srilankan army in the name of 'Humanitarian Operation' against the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) (in fact against the Tamils on the whole), two years before. I informed the event organizer in the bus while we were about to cross the borders. He said, "its not very often they stop vehicles and check, but if they do today, we will try to explain. It might or might not help. Lets see." I wasnt sure if that was a note saying, 'dont worry' or 'keep worrying'??!! But my mind choose to do the later, until I went in to sleep. But nothing happened, no one asked on the way to and fro. I remember I had the same feeling as I have now when I crossed the border back. Oh! I shouldn't do it again. But, of-course I did it again.

Its to Lubeck, Germany this time to visit my school day friend Krishna. I didnot had the feeling until I lost the signal in my mobile phone. Then I realized, 'Damn it! Am going to another country!' Until then, I was cool enjoying the music. But then, every time the ticket checker crosses, my mind voice goes, "Don't come to me... dont come to me...! I hope he dont hear me screaming...! hm.. its good that the humans are not yet evolved for hearing one another's mind voice..." and so much on!

But I dont even know what would be the punishment for that. I have the social-security card from Denmark, but people say no thats not acceptable, you need to carry the resident permit! But anyways, after giving this deep though, I hope I wont do this again! :) If I do, I wish I get caught once ;-)... just curious to know what could that situation be!! :D

…always close to finish!

Its the 6th day in a row, I come to the office in the morning and when I open my lab-top, am saying to myself, “I’ll finish the manuscript today”. Am I going to say the same thing tomorrow also?? I see my weekly-planner, little above the laptop screen hanging on the wall; what I could easily see is deadlines and  then moving the deadlines. When you are close to finish with some thing, and you think oh, its going to be done in some time.. and that some time continues for some time! Ah… am really tired of it…  is there a dot to cure this syndrome!!?? When I tried to pen down what I felt like, I came up with this (click here to see).
