Window 1

Hello world…
(Oh, I am remembering my college days when we had to write a C program for this letter “Hello World”, its nothing to do with “World”…)
Here, sitting on 19th floor, watching Gotham… it’s the best moment of the day… watching Gotham…
Even though I don’t like it…
But it has been eventually turned my alibi to watch it…
I can tell that the window of this apartment has been very friendly with me…
At least it understand that I have to sit there and have my dinner…
Otherwise I will not even have my 3-4 hours of sleep…
Its my desk to earn and burn my calories… 
But today is very different…
For me, for this window…
I am moving out from here…
To a new place, and to be a neighbor of new strangers…
Yes, living here in this building, for 6 months, even today everybody is a stranger except two…
One is my Doorman (sorry, I don’t ask the names of people, so I don’t know his name) and another sort of person is Chester…
Chester has been very nice to me for a long time…
His eyes, his walk, his ears, everything is so much beautifully designed…
And he is so honest personality that even he likes me, but without the permission of his caretaker, he doesn’t allow himself to come to me and have a chat…
And most important point, I like the best in him is his moving tail…
a symbol of affection and love…
Alas, why men don’t have a tail … 😉
Just kidding… Chester is a dog living here on the top floor… 22nd…
I occasionally meet him in the elevator, on riverside, on a walk, while I think of honesty…
Anyways, I should not be writing about Chester more, as my next entry will be completely on dogs…
So again, writing all this, while sitting on my window, watching Gotham, I am thinking about the bond I share with this window…
I think materialistically at times….
I think will this window too will miss me the same way I miss it…
Or its like some other person will come and sit on it… and then it will become “adjustable” and “habitual” of that person…
Or if that window will think that now it should feel blessed for whatever it has got, and now it has a new owner and paying for it…
I mean is it really depend on if I will be out from this apartment for two months (2 odd months) and then I will come back to this window, should I be able to find the Gotham’s view as same as it is today? Or that window will be change enough to accept me as what I was and what I am…?
I know some “social” people will find me odd enough to talk about all this…
But in the end what social is actually “we” and how we make the things “social”…
So it doesn’t matter… its fine…
I know people sitting out there want me to be more responsible and practical…
But responsibility and practicality has nothing to do with presenting your views…
At one point, you have to look back and think… and question and answer…
That is how it works… that is how it is…
And more funny part is, its Saturday night… Empire State of mind is colorful tonight…
Even though its a sin city, but sin has its own enjoyment…
“bin alfazon ke ye batein, bin baarish ki hain barsaatein…”
It only happens in Gotham… for few…
Its owesome view here..
I am going to miss it… for sure… 1910 has been its charm…
God bless!!
