Then and Now


Then :-

I used to dream a lot

Now: -

I still do the same


Then: -

I used to play a lot

Now:-

It is only restricted to computer games


Then:-

I was too crazy about my girlfrd

Now:-

I am too crazy about her still now


Then: -

I was always afraid of marrying her

Now:-

I am still afraid of the same


Then:-

Planning was a thing for old and foolish

Now:-

Seems I became the old and foolish


Then:-

I couldnt sit at any place for more than 10 mins

Now:-

Now its not more than 5 mins


Then:-

I could give my right hand to learn play guitar like SLash

Now:-

If I give my right hand how will I eat


Then:-

I loved the winter afternoon

Now:-

Round the year its winter for me


Then:-

I wanted to eat a lot of kurkure

Now:-

I spend that money in smoking


Then:-

Cycling was my favurite past time

Now:-

The same thing didnt transfer to bikes or cars so I avail to walking


Then:-

Working all night was a nightmare

Now:-

Not working all night is a nightmare


Then:-

Wanted to be in Airforce

Now:-

Thankgod I am not there


Then:-

Wanted to be a guitarist

Now:-

I am one..well half aked thoug but yet


Then:-

Promises were made to be kept

Now:-

Committments are made to be broken after payment :)


Then:-

I liked to sit alone near a medow or a pond by myself for long hours

Now:-

I miss those lonely moments


Then:-

Paper weights and the design inside it used to facinate me a lot

Now:-

Its only a paper weight


Then:-

I wanted to be financially independent

Now:-

I am financially enslaved


Then:-

Pastries and Burgers in Monginis were a delicacy

Now:-

Its junk food


Then:-

Porn magazines were costlier than gold

Now:-

Burn magazines to keep me out of cold


Then:-

A Girls smiles at me used to mean she fell for me

Now:-

A girl tell " I love you" seems like a bluff to me


Then:-

Swinging from one coconut tree to another through its leaves was estacy

Now:-

Cant tell for sure which one is a coconut tree and which is a palm tree


Then:-

Making Paper plans and flying them was like getting high

Now:-

Even Cream cannot take me that high now


Then:-

Paper boats were our passport to the dreamland fantasy

Now:-

Floating in the raft of hopeless mystry


Then:-

Sharing tiffin was fun

Now:-

U need to buy bad pun


Then:-

God was Gay for me

Now:-

God is still Gay for me...though its upto you all how you comprehend this word GAY....


In the end I always think life is a journey so rather than taking too much trouble in locating the next destination we can always enjoy the road and look back at times to the passed stations which sometimes do bring a smile in the lips.

Rather than cribbing what I have done in life I would always like to live as what I am doing right now......
