ADIOS MUMBAI!

You know what, there are another 24-odd days left in my tryst with city of dreams, Mumbai... It's almost over now...and almost a time to reminisce...almost...
When I look back though, there have been a very few take-aways for me from my time here... before I joined, I had thought, knowing my years-old tussle with the city, that if i were at a point when I'd be leaving the city, I'd be sad and possibly overwhelmed. (Yes Lehar, I did think so but sadly, no such emotions crossed me today.) I'm almost happy to be leaving. Despite not having a job at the end of the course, I'm still not displeased. Apprehensive about my future, yes...very much so...but not disappointed.
Funny, 24 days...it's a countdown that I dreaded so much in every one of the previous institutions I have been a part of, even Thermax...yet, here...now...there is a sense of relief...an emotion that is new to me. Yes, obviously i shall miss some of the friends I have made over the past year but I am most disappointed that I will be leaving one person behind...someone whom I've been without for a long time now...
It's so bad, I tried looking back and writing a poem...and I couldnt even put down one line...
