If years were words…

with 16 comments

If years were mere words, then which ones, would aptly describe the main event or essence of all the past 26 years of my life?

An effort –

1985- At 12.5 pounds, I was one of the heaviest non-meteors to have hit this planet

1986- [Blurred Memory]

1987- The pain of getting my little finger sewn by a sewing machine!

1988- Joining the assembly line popularly known as school

1989- [Blurred Memory]

1990- [Blurred Memory]

1991- Living alone for the first time

1992- Witnessing the first death

1993- Got recognized for my ‘beautiful’ writing [I still don’t agree]

1994- Realizing that even I could be a non-bad-student

1995- Most probably, I saw a ghost!

1996- That Blue-Yellow Sweden Cap

1997- It took me 12 years and 500 kilometers to see a mountain for the first time

1998- New friends and new (dirtier) outlooks 😉

1999- Shortening and renaming the most recognizable thing

2000- Crowning glory to a very close friendship

2001- First tryst with glory and joy of failures

2002- Saved from the jaws of death

2003- Unexpected glory (or wtf)

2004- Where to go and what the hell to do?

2005- Over-optimism combined with ego is poisonous

2006- Climbing Mt. Pessimism and staying there for almost an year

2007- Sister’s marriage & joys of ranking everything

2008- Transition from nothingness to wilderness to substantial-ness

2009- Year long paid vacation covering more than 28,000 Kms

2010- Finding the meaning of a few abstract things

2011- The abruptness of change was like a life-quake
