I stumbled on Y's Blog today and quite unbelievably, today itself I am writing this post! Guess, I am much intrigued by Sid and her creator both and equally. I just cannot directly take part in the contest without writing about Y and don't ask Y? First I saw her pic with her son and he was like about to eat rather gulp her. Sweet .Then I saw this -
Welcome to Y's WorldI would like to read 'Sorting out Sid 'because Sid's world seems so different from mine's. The marketing/corporate job which looks so heartless / corrupt to me, the fat pay cheque which is alien to me, the 'settled' life, wife, parents.... everything seems SO unlike the life which I had/am experiencing personally or on the behalf of friends and relatives.
I want to get this different world feel as I know that - though with money, power and success life-style changes but the person who is living it , does not! Deep down the wishes , the longings even ambitions are same and eternal. Somewhat camouflaged, yet quiet similar....
If one person's ambition is to buy a car irrespective of brand and other's perhaps, an island in Caribbean, its the same if one only ask why? The answer will be something like - to see happiness and pride on our parent's faces, bliss on loved one's countenance and a carefree glow on kids , to have peace and privacy.... The objectives are same the paths differ. The problems are the same manipulative bosses, superficial relations, stressed out life and somewhere amidst all the urge to deliver your best, experience bliss, have stable relations, true friendship..... Its like asking for a calming adventure and a thrilling peace!
So,I feel that if Sid needs to be sorted out no matter if its done amidst beer mugs or Lassi jugs, its gonna be interesting and hilarious and I am very curious to know his psyche` and his life. The entry of Neha.. how will he react ?Contest or no contest I am gonna read it from A-Z. And again please don't ask Y?
