A thought to last beyond a lifetime

He may have exaggerated. But he had the balls to do what others won't. For that, I always admired him, and I always will.

In his memory, and with hope for the future of SL, I quote his words :

"Should we fail meaningfully to address the aspirations of the Tamil people that survive this holocaust, we can be sure as night follows day that history will repeat itself... and all the bloodshed and all the sacrifice made to bring the war to a conclusion will have been in vain,"

Oreddy Oso Can Lah!

The hectic days never seem to end.

So the move was done. It all began with Air India Express, who, god willingly, brought me safely back down to earth not once but twice! (Yes, there was a small part of me that wondered whether I had made the right choice going budget!). The three hour stop over in Chennai, where small talk could not be avoided, was not travel-friendly. But it's done.

Arrived home at 10:30pm on Sunday night, straight to work first thing Monday morn. And every evening has been a mad rush of buying things for the house to make it a home.

So yesterday I had my first session of cricket in 4.5 months and i nearly died! But after cricket, we (the housemates and I) went to check out this couch, which turned out to be awesome, and which is now going to be a housemate of ours come Saturday. Strangely, i'm very excited about the couch!

Still need to get bed linen (yes, i've been sleeping on a sarong for days now), which should get done today.

Hopefully a relaxing weekend to come.
