Change

How do you respond when your close friends/family tell you that you have changed? Well.. one is to simply deny – the response which I have come across most often. Another one is to sound apologetic – I am sorry that I have changed. Because change also means the relationship between us would get directly affected. These responses come generally when change occurs unconsciously.

What do you do when you are aware that everything around you has changed – hence your not changing would be simply abnormal. When I left school and went to college, my school friends found me changed. In college, when I switched friends and confiders, the old ones felt I had changed. I went to work and made an entire new set of friends. Again a new bunch of people in life. Changed from a student to a highly earning single girl (lower taxes, remember?) Got bored of it quickly. Quit. Moved on. Changed! Couldn’t go to pubs as often! Couldn’t waste money as frequently. Two years down the lane, into a new profession, I changed all over again! Don’t talk to me about mobiles – lets talk about reservation as an affirmative action. How entrepreneurs in education field are doing more harm than good – to the world of course. Changed and changing… Prioritise fiance over everyone else. I can’t go to the US to visit my family, coz I don’t want to stay away from him for a month. :)

Change is inevitable, folks! And to be honest, I love it! Always looking out for more of it..

  1. Ek patented khyaal: Change in us is like the one that we tender at a shop – precious at times when it is difficult to find, but most of what we are is still like the hard cash, sitting with us not making a move because we spent stuff to have it. Taxi mein baithe to 100 ka change chahiye, Ganne ka juice peena hai to 10 ka change – time time ki baat hai pyaare na tu badla na mein badla:)

    Ek borrowed khyaal: Everything but change changes.

  3. Whats also important to know is if India has a double taxation avoidance treaty with Dubai? If not, no matter how much you save there, being an Indian citizen you will have to pay the taxes here. So it is also important to be born in a tax free haven:)
