It Ain't The Wrath Of Sour Grapes.....!

Its been since ages that we've been hearing our parents,peers etc tell us "jo hota hain ache ke liye hota hain" whenever something went amiss. At the time when things go horribly wrong, we feel we've been struck by catastrophe........! Now that I've been retrospecting since quite a few days(yeah, you've guessed it right....... I'm seriously jobless and have nothing better to do!) I've begun to realize that actually whatever happens,does happen for good!! When things never happened the way I wanted them to happen, I used to feel that I'm the only one who has to face Destiny's Wrath, and that nothing ever will go my way! This was the "Why-again-me" syndrome that keeps on recurring! But now that I've become sagacious(a l'il bit!!) I think its for good that things never went my way.... because not-my-way is cool too!! And yes I'm not being subtlely sarcastic neither is it the case of sour grapes! I'll tell you a few instances that make me feel so..........



I was in Std 9, life complete with good grades,great teachers(ah how much I value them now after seeing University Professors!) and awesome buddies,but life had to intervene, so my parents decided to shift! The shifting meant me changing my school in the last year...... How cool is that?! No amount of hunger strikes from me helped me in my case to stay back,so I had to leave and go into a new school which I did eventually,though I was cursing my new school under my breath from the minute I got admission(which ironically was due to the good impression my Writing skills created on the Interviewer!!).I entered the school with a negative frame of mind.Little did I know that the friends,(Pooja and Radhika) I was gonna make there were actually the best and would remain with me till my last breath(God willing!!). My tenth std is memorable only because of them!



Then came 11std, and despite getting admission in Mithibai Science, I went to Gokhlibai..... for the only reason that my mom wanted me to take IT!! I tried going on a hunger strike again......... but I was asked to shut up! Initially G'bai seemed rosy.(how!!???!!) Later on it turned out to be a nightmare,a battleground, a mud slinging match or God knows what! I started regretting the fact that I wasted my 2 years.Its now that I realize how much G'bai taught me about life,to to be strong and always walk with head held high no matter what people talk or think....... and most importantly it taught me the most important lessons in life that 1.Don't trust people blindly,for they will walk over you 2.Don't make friends so quickly.(That's why I refrain from making new friends..... remember in the earlier posts.....) and 3.Don't love anybody more than you love yourself!



The only thing I learnt from my SP days is that I need to improve my taste in guys!!!!(According to Akshata,Radhika and Sneh....... the latter wanted to puke on one of my crush's face!)



Like I told you I never liked the first few initial months at Mithibai..... for my degree course....... but then later on when I actually started attending college regularly(though Ajay and Ankit would still beg to differ on the last part...... I can't help not attending all the lectures that take place...... after all I need my beauty sleep....and the 7 o clock lecture interferes with it!!), I realised I'd have missed out on so much had I listened to my "well-wishers" who adviced me against "BSc".I'd have never met Aanchal who will see to it that I shed all my laziness and show the world my real potential and calibre in the field of academics..... which she feels is great......although I wouldn't want to comment on it!(Somebody just mentioned that modesty is the "in" thing these days.Hehe!) I'd have never met Hetvi whose attitude in life is something I'd really like to emulate!I'd have never met Ankita who will be my stock broker in future and if HAN India Pvt. Ltd does get established(Amen) she'll be our company's head of stocks or whatever its called! And Manshi,who'd be the company's bartender!Ajay woould have obviously multiple jobs ranging from the postman to clerk to the R and D head(His mom is gonna have a reason every day to make "gajar ka halwa"!!).Ankit would be the CFO(Chief Financial Officer..... for all you ignorant souls!!) in the spare time that he'd have after romancing well... hmm.... I'd really wouldn't have met them if I had paid heed to other people!



One more positive that I've taken from life is that its for good that I don't have a boyfriend..... God is wise na....... and he loves all human beings equally....... so He wouldn't want a gangster who adulates Gabbar Singh and tries to ape him in every possible way, to kill my boyfriend because my Veeru's Basanti(that's me!!) can't dance to save his life!!Rather the Gabbar fan gangster would release Veeru(my guy) so that he can find a DANCER girlfriend(He can try Nisha Kothari if Hema Malini failed......although it'll look eeks!!)And besides, God doesn't want me to be my guy's murderer!!!!



So, see I mean what I say......... everything happens for a reason and you have the option of looking at either the positive or negative side(negative side is bound to be there na!).......... the prerogative is yours to make the call and make it matter and channelize life in the right direction! C'est la vie,people! After all grapes may be sour,but you can definitely ferment them to get sweet wine!! That's why it ain't the wrath of sour grapes!
