The times have been turbulent. Legally. The storm has ended. The sea was getting back to normal waves from being ruthless high tides. It was time to set sail. Literally. Five years back, looking ahead I boarded a train after one of my wellwisher friend said ‘get on to the next train.’ Lets get going. (On looking back that train was destined to Mumbai, where Housing.com started it all.)
Sometimes change is all you need and sometimes that’s so true for the place, which obviously gives you a sense of comfort. A sense of comfort zoned. Things can be ok an sometimes mediocre still you would want to continue. You don’t want to risk anything. maintain status quo. But you need that jolt that you can be better or there is a whole world waiting for you. Experiences and relationships that can change your life forever for the better.
It was going to be new place, new people, I would be building a new life literally. I reach Mumbai and with the help of my friend who happens to be my brothers classmate in Thane. I got to know he took the Western Expressway to go to work.
A week of searching houses and getting into a PG a Punjabi family at that. I was getting to work with new set of friends, well wishers, and fully expanded career in digital. The pace was too good getting settled into the role was on the job in a matter of few days.
I was living the game. enjoying it if you ask me. It made all the difference. To look at the different aspect of life. To be you and make up for the lost time. That moment that I decided to leave hometown made all the difference in starting a new life.
You get a sense of what adaptability means and get used to everything new but that’s how the life is and if we can make it happen with those challenges then we have arrived.
You got to do your own things, all of a sudden, there are personal responsibilities, keeping things perfect. You are the master of the house. You get to do it the way you want. Keep it clean or dusty and the like…
Since then it has been a roller coaster ride career juggling a lot of things, and looking forward to more challenges everyday. It opened up new vistas and new way of thinking and also a bit on entrepreneurship which was latent made a come back.
This phase also got me to look at change in pace of a metro and was soon realizing the cinematic expressions first hand. A lot of things you get to know how life reflects the reel and vice versa. Looking back I knew that was a start that was very much needed.
Some time later I moved to Delhi, that again was a move that changed my ideas for better. Thats for another day.
if you ask me this video is a wonderful collection of the journey that comes in fulfillment to the newest logo on the block. Housing.com could not have expressed it better.
