“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

What's happening to this City?

For the past two days, it's been a very freaky weather over here in Gurgaon. The air just dies in the afternoon leaving the whole city baking to death. All of a sudden in the late evening, the rain God wakes up, first tries his hand on Dust Storms and then quickly followed by rain, as if preparing for some DJ competition.

But this used to happen before also, but this time it's a bit different. The difference is, the storms are big time dusty and the rain, no matter for how long it stays, it's all mud and nothing else. All this goes to show the level of dust that has settled in the atmosphere over the past couple of years. More and more barren land is being acquired by builders to make A.C. fitted building leaving even a blade of grass crying for space. I bet an areal shot of Gurgaon would reveal a very sorry picture. The greenery is only left withing the boundaries of Golf Courses, Parks and Gardens. The Aftermath, the Summers make you feel as if you are inside a furnace, the Winters staying over scheduled and the dust level dodging every scale.

Last night it rained heavily and this morning the temperatures were quite pleasant. But the proof of my narration above was left on my bike, which enjoyed the entire rain and was left mud-stained.....
The signals are clear, and if we don't wake up and react quickly, then this city, though would have many building and constructions to boast off, but would be left with Stone Age weather conditions.......
.....and views like these would soon become available in portraits in museums.

  1. The other day I had my bike washed and polished for Rs.75 and the very next day it was covered with dust thanks to the dust storm from the previous night.

    And today its been unusually cold for a Mid-May Day thanks to the drizzling rain..!!

    The wheather has definitely been going nuts (at least in Assam and Bangalore) over the last couple of years. Looks like Gurgaon is no exception.

  2. Payeng Dude!!

    Great to see your comment!!

    That's what we say 75 went to dust ;)

    The dust levels are reaching new heights here day by day, thanks to those uncovered soil mountains along road-sides near construction areas over here.
