A Parting Note

Same as last 3 days even today morning everything seemed very good and I was hoping the day to go well. I was not aware of what was in stock for me on this fateful afternoon. It was 3 hours ago when she decided to leave me. Everything happened all of a sudden. Neither me nor anybody else could see it coming. I never anticipated this to happen.

She was very very very important to me for so many reasons. She was always with me in both happy and sad occasions. She stood by me in both tough and glory times. She have always taken care and made sure that I was never alone, and left out. She was my beautiful personal secretary and would do everything for me that is there in her limits – right from waking me up, to help me organize myself, to help me reach my friends, to book my movie tickets, to check my balance sheet etc. She would sing and entertain me when ever I was bored or stressed out. I was always connected with the world when she was with me. I say that she is everything in my life but still she meant a lot in my life. She came into my life unexpectedly and left in the same way abruptly. Neither her arrival nor her departure from my life was expected by me.

Yes, you expected it correctly, I lost my iphone on the day of holi in the cab 😦 . That means – no calls, no music on the move, no alarm clock in the morning, no organizer to remember important dates and activities, no pastime games when bored and no SMS to friends just to kill time during the meetings, most important no facebook and no internet. I can overcome all this just by buying any other stupid phone. But here comes the worst part – I have already lost my 350+ contacts – something I always feared when I heard about this from friends.

I have been depressed since last night. I have been calling my number and I can hear only one voice: “The number you are calling is not available”. I called customer support and blocked my Sim and the only positive point out of this is that I can retain my number, so there is no need to update my phone number to all my friends.

Then after all this anger and frustration, I remembered this song from Munna bhai MBBS –

which has lyrics as

Sapna toota hai to dil kabhi jalta hai
Haan thoda dard hua par chalta  hai
Sapna toota hai to dil kabhi jalta hai
Haan thoda dard hua par chalta  hai

Phir, phir kya hua?
Phir, phir kya hua?
Agle din apne mohalle main aishwarya aayi…
Apna khopdi phir chakkar kha gaya
Phri truck ke saath phir chakkar kha gaya

This has given a boost and went straight to Starhub to renew my contract and took iphone 4. Now I and Swetha are proud owners of iPhone 4. Now I am trying to get a backup for contacts.

  1. Was feeling drowsy at the end of the day at work, and happened to read the above post. It livened me up. Nice short story format. Just to share my side. I got my Blackberry upgraded to Iphone4 a couple of months back. Returned it and switched back to my Blackberry curve in 2 weeks.

    Primarily 2 reasons. Missed the keypad feel, and then the depth of information and data available via Iphone4 is something which I just dont need, “but” going to get addicted to. Another gadget which is going to eat away time. Well, that is how it felt, and I decided to switch back.

    Or as my freinds at work put it, Im getting “outdated”, or to be more specific “OLD” 🙂
