So, stomach full with yummy methi malai mutter and mind full of thoughts a sleepy-head starts writing her blog. Today, before lunch I came across this wonderful book named “Understanding Muhammad”. I got so caught up with the book that I lost track of time and was brought back to the world by the clock when it struck 1:30.. I suddenly remembered that we were way past our lunch time and that we must go now as I had started to feel really hungry. We took our lunch boxes and started walking towards the elevators. But there was something different today.. Instead of thinking about the race I am going to be a part of, all I had in my mind were quotations from the book I was reading. I was amazed by what the writer has mentioned in that book. Everyone with an open mind to a subject as sensitive as religion must read this book. Fortunately for me (though unfortunately for my stomach) we were late in going for lunch today, the canteen welcomed us with an empty table at the entrance.. Getting back to work now with an anxious mind to read the next chapter in the book..
It was just yesterday when I said to Snehal, “I hate this time of the day when we have to look into people’s plates to see if they’re done with their lunch.. 5 most frustrating minutes”, with irritation evident on my face. Let me tell you, office canteen just isn’t the place to have “lunch time memories” especially when it’s too small to accommodate the employees during rush hours. The process goes like, you enter the canteen, peep into the plates, acquire your target who is about to finish their lunch and just SPRINT towards the chair as soon as your target gets into a semi-standing position. Now that you’re into the game you just have to smile at your opponent if he manages to reach the chair before you and get over your defeat and then repeat the procedure step 2 onward. This whole thing can take anywhere between 5 to 15 mins, latter being our big-time-loser record. Well, it’s not all that bad.. I’ll get back with the positives later..
