This blog isn't about a special story, or a incident, or something to impress everyone. So don't try to juice ur brain to find one :)
An-other (its just not another)morning with archanai ( slang for scolding) from mom for not locking the front door properly in the night. Being the last one to sleep I usually do that without forgetting, but u never know when you will miss.
"Sorry mom , I forgot . I wont do it again "." You forgot to pay the telephone bill as well"..But She isn't stopping at all .Its slowly turning into Laksha archani (a lakh scolding). " Mom I am hungry" this is the trick I always do when things go out of control. " Just brush up and come I have dosa ready for you " ( It works like a miracle , well always !)
One time, My dad checked in the midst of the night whether I locked the door or not but I wasn't, So he locked and went to bed. Thank God I was little awake at that time and I turned the whole thing against my dad , I told he in his sleep walking state unlocked the locked door and I am the one who did correctly locked it after he went to sleep, I kind of remembered the time it happened ( U know remembering everything about ur mistakes always helps). My poor dad had his own share of special archanai.
Ok let me not digress too much. Its just that I often get comments even from my friends that I am not "matured". I started wondering today as to what maturity is all about and why I am not a matured person. I buy toys when I go abroad. I love watching animation movies, no need to tell about POGO and cartoon network.I can be cranky at times , sensitive, possessive, demanding and what not?
Dictionary says maturity is - "The period of time in your life after your physical growth has stopped and you are fully developed " , and what is fully developed by mind ? or intellect?Because there is no end to developing oneself , you can keep doing it all through life..and
I don't think anyone has fully developed. Research shows even Einstein has not used his mind fully. Its just relative. No need to talk about development of Intellect, we are all Intellectual amateurs.
But there are times I feel I acted matured, like when I was doing my computer course in aptech, I came 1st in the fourth semester but couldn't continue the studies since I was not able to pay the fee. I did take that really well, I understood the situation the reality.And when my mca met, who I thought will be my love forever married someone else. I did take that well, she did what is good for her and I am happy to see her happy. Its very practical and I totally understand that.
I have lost and gained many things in professional and in personal life. Well everybody does and I wasn't acting like a toddler those times .. I came out of every situation with complete understanding. Yes I do buy toys all the time, that makes sense since I didn't happen to have one when I was a kid and use to hold on to broken toys of our neighbor's kid. I do buy CDS all the time, I keep it on the shelf and I hardly use it .It shows I am now in a position to afford to these things.
It all boils down to one point understanding oneself, understanding the situation and most importantly understanding other.. isn't that is maturity?
