Saniya arrived on 6th January. Her birth is an event that makes me celebrate my life more than ever now. It also gives me a reason to continue this blog once again.
I have been very busy. There were 7 days remaing in my marriage once. There are 315 days passed since my marriage now. Life has been really hectic in these 322 days. So much keept happening around. After my marriage, I shifted my wife to islamabad in a very nice apartment. Since then, the routine of life is so that weekly I spend 5 days in islamabad and 2 in Peshawar. In Peshawar there is always some place VERY IMPORTANT (Susraal offcourse) to visit as my wife has vowed to never miss any of her family gatherings and there are always too many gatherings in her family. One fine example is a big celeberation that happened on the special event that the larkay wala and larki wala just fixed the shadi ki date . It is very mandatory for me to accompany my wife with me on such occasions. Along with that there are always certain spur-of-the-moments plans that require urgent attention . so my life is in a rush. There are always too many distractions around and so many things going on that i am not being able to have sometime to relax and write some of my thoughts. Earlier i used to get sick every other day because of this speed of life, but now my lazy arse is getting used to it. Driving for Peshawar/islamabad trip doesnt frighten me as much as the simple Daewoo ride used to . I have driven 20 thousand kilometers in justs these 322 days. That shows how efficient beast-of-burden i can become.
My wife is a very sweet person like me and she is the best thing that has happened to me in life. I wont say that she has made my life a true heaven because i have seen true hell in these 322 days as well - (a married life has to have its ups and downs ) - but she has been very instrumental in make me a happier person. She is somewhat like me (in appearance and behaviour ) but she has a different view of life and so i keep getting my constant dose of paradigm-shifts from her. She wants to enjoy every moment of her life and i feel really lucky to be a part of those moments. It has been fun spending time with her understanding the dynamics of the married life which deals with so many things like Time management, Expectation Management, Health Management, Mood Management ,Use of Negotiatin skills,...etc. There are just so many variables to deal-with now. Finally i have started seeing my life as a computer game (like starcraft offcourse) in which you manage diffent types of resources (lumber, gas) and apply different stratigies. My wife, off course, acts as the player ..... the one you compete with.. lol . As a person who listens to all of my problems and complaints, my wife has been very helpful in guiding me towards the right decisions. She is the main culprit behind my blog's hiatus. She keeps me busy and then listens to me to the extent that there remains no residue to post here. The price i pay.... is that i listen to her....for hours...lol..
322 days have passed since i last wrote my blog. I was a bachelor person then, I am a married person now..and my baby was born around 30 hours ago. So much has been added in my life, so much has been removed from my life. There is no stracraft now. No late hours internet surfing now. No aimless life now. There is a family in my life now. There is some-one-to-go-home-early-for now. There are Indian dramas on starplus to watch now. There are relatives-in-law now. There are valimas, barats, aqueeqas to attend now. There is a filled schedule now.
With the birth of Saniya, there is going to be a lot more addition in my life now. I hope that Saniya will bring me more joy. I hope she will become a constant source of happiness for me and that i will become the caring father that i always wanted to be.
Now i should get up as the night ends. I am doing night duty as my wife's attendant at Shifa Internation Hospital. It is a very good hospital and things have been very good uptill now. The equipment is good. Patient room is very good . It is seperate and spacious. The doctor we consulted is very good . She let me sit in the operation theater and i was continously talking to my wife to comfort her while she was being operated; something i have only seen in movies.
Me goes now. Have to get back to the life. I am not sure when i will get time again.
Oh! Sometimes somewhere during these 322 days,
- I became Informatica Certified Professional by passing the Informatica papers but oh! i am scripting for the last 1.5 years.
- Starcraft was not released.
