Word'less' wednesday - Tulsi pooja

Image
The picture above was taken few weeks ago. Tulsi pooja is one of the festival that normally comes after Diwali and is celebrated in most part of southern karnataka. As far as I remember this was the first time I missed celebrating this small pooja  with my mom in our home town.

Why am I not grateful to what I have? Hmmm... This isn't something new or isn't something that I’ve heard  for the first time from my beloved. Life, which I always said is beautiful but depend on the way we look at it… But, do I really mean it or have I lived the way it is said? When my grades went down – I felt bad for not getting a chance to appear for the campus interview, instead of looking into what is going wrong or concentrating on correcting myself… When I did get chance to write one – I felt bad for not getting into the big ones, though I had not prepared enough or wasn’t worthy of… When I did get a good job – after some time, I felt I shouldn’t have changed my mind during seat selection of engineering, which resulted in, me changing the course which I had initially got. If I had not, I would have got something even better.. When I did change my job – after some time, I felt it is not enough. When I was in bench doing nothing – I felt bored and feared for the futureWh…
