shower conceived these too!

Being "organised" hasn't been my strongest point. "Organised" in quotes because, it just dawned on me that this act could actually be very personal, and relative. "Organised" in one's view could be completely disorganised in someone else's. Seeing one of my profs' office in "complete mess" all the time, I used to think at least someone is worse than myself when it came to being "organised". I would have to push things around (on the floor and on the chairs and desks) to create a space for myself whenever I had meeting. But, it always startled me when my prof found everything he wanted to quicker than one would from a perfectly labelled (organised) filing system, or say a library. I would just sit there in awe of his memory. Remember playing a card game, where you have to flip two similar cards based on your memory of seeing them just once? Its like that. Everything in that chaos were in their "space" and in my profs' memory of that space. Now, once a year my prof does "organise" his office (its a ritual that it seems has to be performed!), and after this "organisation" I find him lost in his own office for a few days (not being able to find the right document, and having to spend more time on everything because of that!) until his office came back to it normal chaotic self. I think his office is an "organised" chaos, just like morning rush hours in any of the metros in big cities. Its a chaos but things still move quite smoothly (because everybody know their "spaces").

My conversation with a friend from high school...

23 March 10:16:26 mp: Hi [...], k 6 haalkhabar?
23 March 10:31:06 [...]: hi who are you?

After my own short pause!!

23 Mar 10:33:57 mp: are you in an internet cafe?
23 Mar 10:34:22 [...]: no

I was worried he might have been at an internet cafe earlier and forgotten to log off from the IM, and somebody else was using the same computer. Just wanted to confirm if I was talking to somebody else! But he was not, and I was relieved but also perplexed. And that was the end of conversation!

I think I did the right thing by just letting him get on with his work...May be he was in a hospital signed on using his Smartphone!! Or may be he really did forget who I was 🙂
