So finally after waiting for 7 months i got my joining and now its time to enjoy the next phase of my life. I still remember the day I got my date intimation mail. It was 31st December 2015 and i was busy taking my tuition classes as usual when at around 1:30 my phone buzzed. I was so used to these unwanted message tones about marketing mails and a lot of things that I didn’t even checked my phone in those days.
I was delighted when I found that the mail was from the company in which I have been placed.And i shouted at the top of my voice when i read the subject line Date intimation mail.I was delighted and felt on the top of the world.Hearing my voice my parents came and asked about the whole thing and congratulated me. Then they asked “Kahan Jana hai ??”(Where you have to join). I was so much busy that i even didn’t checked the joining location.
As soon as I opened my mail and read that I have to go to Chennai I was equally disappointed. The happiness, enthusiasm and joy all went away and I felt a bit sad and annoyed. When you are from north and you have to go to South India specifically Chennai then people around you specifically your parents will become so tensed as if you are sent to a Indo Pak War front.
I was tensed but kept myself calm and answered every query which my parents asked so that they are assured that I will be happy staying in Chennai. I logged in to Facebook to check how many people are joining with me so that I can get help from them and plan my journey nicely to Chennai.
But after scrolling and reading each and every Facebook post that appeared on my Laptop i was shocked that only two of my friends would be joining the company with me on the same day.I called my sister the same instance and told everything to her. She is such a charm that after chatting with her i was feeling so relaxed that i forgot everything regarding Chennai and focused myself to first plan my journey as a new life and a new city welcomes me with open hands.
The next two days when so fast that i didn’t even realized when time passed. Tension and fear has already started creeping in my mind the moment i read my date intimation mail. I had never stayed alone before and this will be the first time i have to stay away from my parents it was haunting me like anything.I used to sleep just for 4 hours and used to stay awake the whole night lost in those thoughts.
The next morning my neighbor Honey came to my house. It was his regular habit to wake me up in the morning and greet Good morning ! He came and hugged me unaware of the fact that I will not be there to meet him after few days. I love the innocence of kids, how they are so tender,cute and how there touch acts as a wonderful medicine to calm every cyclone in your mind that is making your uncomfortable and sad.
Honey my neighbour
I went for shopping in the evening so as to buy the necessary things i will need in Chennai as it will take time to adapt to a new environment and a new city. I noticed a sudden change in my mom’s behavior as she hasn’t scolded me since last two days. It was her regular habit but now she was pampering me with lots of love and care.
We went to Bhopal Utsav Mela for shopping and after shopping for more than 3 hours we decided to come back home. As soon as i started walking back to the parking lot my mom called me and said ‘Wait !! we should eat something “. We went to food zone and sat down to eat Aloo Paratha (My Favourite 🙂 ) as my parents knew this thing and they want to make me happy so they joined me as well. We sat there for quite a long time revised each and every moment of my school and college life.
