Yesterday was my last working day in what now is my ‘previous’ employer! The process of moving out has never been easy for me ! I wanted to handover every pin and project ! And boy, was it energy sapping ! ( Explains my absence from here… )
After a meticulous handover to a colleague, as i packed my bags to go home, a cornucopia of emotions rushed through me. Maintaining a bland face in an indifferent world, i said my farewells and drove home. I wrote a simple farewell note ! And was quite surprised that so many people wrote back to wish me luck ! ( By the way, you must read this farewell note. Mine was far from it though !)
Today, i picked up my pieces. And hope to get back in shape. Physically. Mentally. In shape in this space. With my friendships. With people. The list is long ! And going by the length of the to-do list, it looks like i am awfully out of shape !!
So, what next ?
I have a few options. The first one, is to go to Madurai, sometime next week! Spend time with folks. The city. Old friends. Catching up with all other blogs. My courses. Renewing friendships & bonds….All of that is number one priority ! I dont have much time at hand. But now, where do i start..!! 🙂
And oh, i almost missed it..! Kavis Musings got featured in the ‘Bangalore Mirror’ ! The post titled “When did you last..” got to page 31. And there were quite a few appreciative notes from readers. Now, if that were an indicator, I would like to believe i am destined for bigger things ! What do you think ?!?
In a couple of weeks, i will be stepping into a new job. As i turn my back to the immediate past, i hope to rediscover my rhythm. And begin anew ! To get back to the future !
Todays music is Nickelback’s ‘If Everyone Cared’. Simply love the song ! My emotions captured !!
And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died
When nobody died…

So, am back. And will keep writing. Thanks a ton for all your support. The mails. The calls. The comments. I feel blessed having you & this space in my life !
Singing Amen, I, I’m alive
Singing Amen, I, I’m alive

Back to the future is the best title for this post! Full of meaning!
I still remember your farewell note written to Amway Team! Reading that was an amazing feeling!

I like the song, beautiful lines.
Seems like you have changed your job. Of all, I liked you going back to Madurai, meet old friends and spending some time. It will be a great time for you. Have fun and enjoy your new job! Keep in touch through blogs.
never ever ever show ur back to the future… like pumba says (lion king), its always better to put ur rear in the past… or past in the rear… watevr!
🙂 all de best… give my HIs to mrs. meenakshi natraj in madurai
Job change?? Feeling all shaky or cool. From what you write I think it was a self taken decision. Right?
Great title Kavi! Welcome Back To The Future then 😉
Ur blog got posted in a newspaper? WOW congrats!
All the best for your new job.
And hope you have a great time “inbetween” 😉
welcome back Kavi.
you had doubts on being destined for greater things ? Looks like your audience is more optimistic than you are!
good luck on the new job!
Renewing friendships & bonds..
What is more important in “LIFE” without this?
Have funa nd enjoy the free time now as they will always be cherished.
Hey there Kavi,
Funny co-incidence this post, considering that I am changing my job at the end of August.
Funny how life and its crossroads seem to happen to people like you and me (who know each other through blogs only) at almost the same time.
Here’s wishing you all the very best in all your new endeavours. Am sure the Big Guy up there has something good planned for you.
Good Luck and all the best for whatever you chose to do in life!
congrats on the new beginnings!
i love this song too!
“The process of moving out has never been easy for me “
