You gave me too much. Yes, let’s agree on that. From venturing into unplanned travels to landing on an undecided job, from freelance payments to a monthly salary, from being a writer to being a teacher, from theatre to violin to no theatre, from friends who turned strangers to strangers who became best of friends, from French classes at Lodhi Road to no classes at all, plays in English and Hindi to plays in French. From beginnings to closures, you did give me too much.
As you wind to an end, I already expect too much out of the coming year. Dear 2014, I don’t want to put you under pressure though. Just begin nicely for everyone around. Let everyone be at peace. Hope you find everyone including me, smiling, as you enter. I also hope this continues all throughout the year. I hope my fondness of certain people, places and memories, grows by the day. You know you’re awaited for many more reasons; you know it, right? Okay, so just stay kind and let things happen for me and everyone around.
तेरी कहानियों के दौर का एक किस्सा तो मैं भी हूँ,
बीते साल का अच्छा बुरा, एक हिस्सा तो मैं भी हूँ
