Reflections

..of a peerless nincompoop

Nostalgia, and some associated thoughts

I sold my Bolero. We shifted from Autobahn to a new place at Marathahalli. Roomies have christened the new place Corsica. But somehow I feel that the place lacks the energy associated with that name. Its more apartment-like when compared to Autobahn. Autobahn had the excitement and energy of an F1 motor home. It was home to Geo, Sand and me. We shared two cars and three bikes. Each one wanted to extract more from these machines than the others did. Every weekend was like a race weekend. We used to explore the unknown, be it speed or terrain.

Life has changed, but the man hasn’t. I still can push these machines to their limits, and I love to do that. But the responsible driver in me says not to. I may not rev it up when I have pillion or passengers. I may not rev it up in city traffic anymore. But I still have the same driver within myself – playful, wild and raring to go.

Going forward, life is dotted with uncertainities. I don’t know where I am heading to. Perhaps I am taking a risk, at the end of which there can only be two results. Either I will be broke or I will be rich. I may never be the same driver if I am broke. Be afraid if I am not broke, for you will find me behind the wheels of a devastatingly fast machine. Be very afraid, for you will never be able to compete with me. Never.

Forgot to mention something. I still can’t swim 😦

  1. I somehow can relate to this bloody sentiment….

    So somewhere, sometime, lets settle it on the roads….

    i’m sitting at the wheel
    i got a green light
    not afraid of nothin’ cuz heart and soul
    i’m built for life

    so let the engine roar
    push the pedal down
    i want the white lines on the highway
    to lead me out of town

    i got headlights
    to guide me thru the night
    i got the window down and the radio playing
    it makes me feel alive

    I am amputated now :_(
    Need to get my license and then four wheels….

    Except, I suppose, in the case of swimming. I can swim faster than you :).
