The Changing Priorities…

I have been staying away from home for the last nine years. All these days have passed away by leaving the beautiful memories of hostel life, college life and job life. In Year by year I had a complete different priorities altogether on my visit to home during vacations. Even now, I’m at home and sitting on my bed. If I look back and if I compare my interests of then to that of now, I feel the change worth loving.

Before SEVEN years…

** I was in intermediate. I used to bring a bunch of books
along with me. Of course on the thought of reading them, but never opened a single book.

** I used to call all of my relatives every time, as it was impossible for me to talk to them from the hostel.

** I used to visit our school along with my mom.

** My grandmother used to cook the eatables that I liked.

** My mind was full of tension about the studies and exams.


Before FIVE years…

** I was in B.Tech. I never brought a single book except during the preparation holidays.

** Watching TV all day long.

** Visiting our school along with my mom.

** My grandmother had expired by then. And I too stopped asking for the eatables. The interest also had gone along with her.

** Watching TV serials along with my grand pa.

Before THREE years…

** I was about to join in my M.tech. I never touched book during
the holidays, but I had planned to prepare for the standards of IIT.

** Watching TV all the day long.

** Visiting relatives’ houses.

** Visiting our school, but not along with my mom. I used to go for just a couple of hours.

** I used to write a lot on papers, like, collection of quotes, my feelings, general knowledge etc. .

Before ONE Year…

** Watching TV all the day long

** Reading books. (Novels, personality development, sports magazines, world history etc)

** Visiting relatives’ houses

** Visiting my favorite teachers’ houses.

** Learning cooking (As i had decided to cook once i join the job)

** Shopping and gardening.

And NOW…

** Cooking and helping mom in house hold work.

** Blogging n browsing. (Not watching TV as I have been busy in watching my Lapi screen... :))

** A burning desire to spend time with my parents

** I have not yet stepped out of home, except to go to the movie and for visiting my favorite teachers’ houses.

It is nothing difficult to analyze why and how these changes happened. It is all simple and is all about the changing interests with time and life. I love this and would like to witness more and more.

Pramoda,

As one grows up outlook undergoes changes and so do interests. It is normal phase of life. Now your interest in cooking is due to fact that your outlook says that it will be needed so you have taken it up. Nice sum up of growing process.

Take care

time changes everything! so true !

Tranquility said...

When we are young, we don't somehow realize how important it is to spend time with near and dear one's. We are busy leading lives doing things that make us happy. This realization comes only with age. I really like your thought process :)

hemanth said...

I add here after two years..
ok.. but no.. I don't write here. I keep it with me.. and compare it with your writings after two years..
Intresting to know the priorities. They keep changes significantly for next 5 years I think, after that they settle down a little and then may change after a certain point of time.

Being Pramoda... said...

HI Deeps..

Nice to see u coming back..:)

Yeah..the change is mutual ..:)

Diana said...

Hi Prams,
I loved your post today, you reminded me in some ways of my older daughter, Ginny. I wonder if you are close to her age. She is 28 years old. You can visit her at ginnyskal.com if you would like.
Your post today made me miss her very much as we only get to see each other once or twice a year.
Love Di

Rohini Prasanth said...

sweet post.. sometimes it is fascinating to watch the way we change over the years.. change is inevitable na.. :)

Readers Dais said...

Hi! Pramoda,
But have your priorites changed,
Towards words its always the same,maybe a change in the mode,
In maintaining relations,its there maybe style of approach hve changed,
Into eatables,thats also there just changed from grandmas hands to urs..
Basics are always with u,some exceptions just appear & may stay or may leave.

Leo said...

Very nice post Prams.. yes the priorities have changed, yet not by much as I read..

I see one thing that remains the same every time.. the Love for the people around u! :)
