i once thought that the oldest and most boring age was 22 !
i never ever wanted to be 22 !
But ..soon i was 23.. And that too, was 4 yrs ago..
Every great sitcom has started with the protagonist being 27 yr old !
(if you have to wiki, you will never know. If you know, you need only wiki :)
27 ! was the dream !!!!!!! Being the new girl in the New York city !
Sure, thats naive idealizing.. but TV sitcoms in fact have had the most impact on my life..
people work or sleep through their lives..
I have spent all that time in the surreal...
TV, movies or books or video games or writing ..
quintessentially... i have cherished not being me and certainly not being in the present..
I have slept..but dreaming endlessly..
Worked...but only in emergencies ...
There are all kinds of surgeons.. i for one..always feel the urge to be funny all the time !
I feel like a stand up comedian while doing emergency duties...
Despite of having all drugs, cutlery, scopes and lasers in my armour , i have felt more alive in moments, when a colicky patient was distracted by laughter...or times when other unit's patients used to attend my rounds..because they longed for that daily dose of hearty scolding,...optimism.. or loads n loads of drama.. :) i never recovered from acting i guess :)
Lucky twenty-seven, work's been fun !
27, New York City , Finding love !!!!
We spend so much of our life on finding The One ! yeah ..most of us do..
Despite of relationships we may already have.. the relentless persuit for a true connection is behind everything that we do.. that lil bit of extra make up or hour at gym to downsize or putting up that harmless selfie..so that we get noticed by that One person.. hitting random likes !!
yikes !! I didnt turn out to be a crazy workoholic spinster in persuit of true love..that i dreamed of being.. @27
In fact i met The One ! three years ago..(mental note= definitely need to stop watching that sitcom, thankfully its last season !) and it has changed being 27 for me..
Sadly it has prematurely absoluted me from lonesome birthdays,valentines, new years...from feasting on romcoms... succumbing to innate anglophilia...
But..holding on to that will only be...like being Arwind Kejriwal...
you have been there, done that, won... now get over it !
I ll be finishing Master of Sugery... venturing into Chirology (Its same but sooo french :)
new role, new place, new language perhaps ( i have mastered Gujarati !! especially the local Chamanpuriya accent :) I can speak the gramatically phonetically incorrect, endearing dialect fluently :)
So this year i m gonna try growing up..and so should you Mr Kejriwal !
You may not bee Rakhi Sawant..but i know a fellow Melodrama Queen when i see one :)
