Adieu I had to say to thee

Adieu i had to say to thee,
The one who gave me love beyond all measures!

She crossed the threshold with a heavy heart. She knew that it was the last time she would walk through those empty corridors, An echo seemed to resound from her heart "Don't go!". There was no way she could put an effort to listen to it. All plans had been made, she was going in search of a better world, to gain knowledge, to pursue better things in life, and her mind told her that this sadness was unnecessary on her part. But her heart couldn't think!

It could only recall memories. It’s a funny thing "Life"! , as we get older we want to hang on to our past memories and old friends...When we are young we never feel the need to hold on to anything. When she changed her school from fifth standard to sixth she had not felt this deep sadness enveloping her from all sides, when she left school for college education she had not experienced this....then why NOW? "Am I becoming old?" she thought to herself, "why am I clinging on to everything here when I myself have often said that life couldn't get any worse than working in this place?"....

There have been many a time when she thought she was just going to die breaking her head on the keyboard for the amount of work she was loaded with. She hated the appraisal politics, the work shirkers and worst of all people who just dumped work on you mindlessly and went away for the weekend. But somehow the emotion called "Love" has always had a stronger hand over "Hate". She had been surrounded by people who had been innately good. Of course that realization always hits you late and hard!!

There had been times like those in her father’s days when people used to work together for 35 years then sought retirement from work and still kept in touch but in the current working conditions working together for even 2 years was quite an achievement. Everything is so fast paced where people keep coming and going out of our lives, while very few leave imprints in our hearts. She counted her friends as one of those few…. It is so hard to meet good people, that too to meet people who actually understand you and take good care of you is something very few are destined to get.

As she was about to board that plane, she hugged each one of them so tight that she just did not want to let go. She just wanted to stand there and talk for hours, but a lump formed in her throat and she was unable to utter even a single word. They reassured her by saying that they were only a click away…

Whoever said that human beings have become more like robots running only after money has never been proved more wrong coz when she saw her friends for one last time she knew there existed an intangible bond that could never be broken.

P.S: This blog is dedicated to all my friends at chennai whom i ll miss once i go to Alabama!

    Hey atom,
    A very emotional Post.
    I know how u must be feeling and what ur going thro right now.Ur abt to bid adieu to all ur friends in Chennai and step into an unknown world.U cud hav easily substitued the word she with Anu in the blog. But the world is a small place and theres every probability that all of us wud meet each other someday or the other.As u say we are just a click or a call away from each other.So get rid of all the apprehensions and be bold to face the new world u will be entering shortly.

    Sayonara.

    Emotional one!! Its true tat even though we complain abt hard times at office ,d appraisal n blabla politics n d monotony here , still it leaves an emotional bond in d form of our friends around.

    These lines ar pretty much true "Everything is so fast paced where people keep coming and going out of our lives, while very few leave imprints in our hearts."

    Can feel what u r goin thru now..Yeah it s difficult to undergo dis transition.But everythin ll b fine. Also as u said we r just a click away..so it won't be difficult to b in touch..

    Wishin u wonderful years ahead kewl life n gr8 success!!

    Across the seas, I go
    In search of what, I don't know.
    Leaving behind parts of me
    In plain view, for all to see
    For neither presence of presence
    Nor absence of absence
    Equals the pain
    Of presence of absence
    Of absence of presence.

    Hope that where you go
    You learn to love to hate
    You learn to hate to love
    So that when you be poised at another gate,
    You leave behind, again
    Frangments of you
    That remind your people and you of pain
    And happiness and memories and joy, all too true.

    "It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone...
    but it takes a lifetime to forget someone." i guess that's life:-)

    @sesh
    ofcourse i know that we have orkut, mail and mobile.... but nothing is as good as meeting them in person!!:-)

    Ok honestly I aint too much of a senti kind but I really really loved this one. Especially the line saying ‘But her heart couldn't think!’. Stupid thing heart eh?

    And hey that line about us wanting to hold on to our past memories.. very interesting never looked at it that way. Love is always a stronger emotion than hate. But the problem with today’s world is it is so fast paced somehow time or rather lack of it seems to overshadow any other emotions. Isnt that saying so true “ One does not seem to know the worth of anything he/she possesses until they loose it”

    Really awesome and superb post. Had a great recollection
    of my school days
