I am grateful that I have created this blog. I have not written here for over two years now. Still, it is here. It was here. If I had not noticed it for one more year, it would still be here. That is the thing with accomplishments, and sometimes achievements. If I have lost everything, I still have those. If no one knows them, I still know. If no one believes them, I still know them to be true. In a train journey across India, a journey that takes more than 36 hours, and a journey- in which, I am all by myself; when I wake up in the middle of the night, and my body keeps moving with the motion of the train, when the air coming out from the air-cooler is unbearably cold, when I feel the need for another blanket, when I am alone and very alone, when I see the fleeting glances of calm villages, when the stars shine and when there are only dry barren lands on both sides of the tracks, my accomplishments are still with me. It is a great feeling.

I am grateful that I have literary instincts in me. Yesterday I sent a very wonderful photograph of a humming bird and some flowers to my girl. Accompanied by it was some words written by me. One of the lines was "Let my love create flowers in your imagination". My girl replied that she liked the photo, but she loved my words. I told her, I could not take all the credit for the words. If she didn't create those feelings in me, how could I ever write them? I didn't see her face after saying this since we were communicating via e-mail, but I guess she smiled. If the smile didn't appear in her face, she smiled in her mind. She felt happy, I am sure.

I am so grateful that I have these great resources to feel inspired when I am in a slump. These help me to unleash my inner power and get the best out of my life. Currently I am getting the best out of my life. Hard work does not seem hard work, because I am enjoying it. Also my girl is smiling back at me. This feels great.

I am grateful that my girl helped me take off the burden from my heart. Our relationship has not yet become hundred percent natural, but it is getting better. And I believe within two to three days our relationship will be back to the way it was. She cares for me so much. She is a little girl with an age mask. I have been able to discover the little baby in her and enjoy everything she does. I cannot wait to meet her soon.
I am grateful that I have the conscience to realize my mistake soon enough to take a 'thought shift' quickly. Yesterday I made the love of my life upset by accusing her of being responsible for my own failure. I failed to see the way she felt and charged her. I soon understood my mistake. Now I have written a long letter to her as she lives far away from me. I am hopeful that she will understand how sorry I am and keep loving me the way she always did. I can imagine the bright smile in her face. She looks the best when she smiles.

I am grateful that I can enjoy Sunday mornings, wake up late and then sleep again. I can feel the warm sunlight and the nice weather. I can listen to music whenever I want. It's just awesome.

I am grateful that I got to share part of Steve Job's vision. He wanted to change the world, and he did. Probably more than he thought he could have done. Steve Jobs is no more in this world, but he will be with us always. He has inspired the way we think, the way we behave. Before I ever used any Mac, I had the idea that Mac will be very complex as almost all the professionals use that. I was struck by its simple, elegant but efficient design. He was a follower of Buddhism, and thus minimalism has influenced his product designs. Now the world will progress at a slower pace as Steve Jobs won't be leading it any more. "If you live everyday believing this could be your last day on earth, one day most certainly you will be right".
