Hello from Hyderabad! (#SoGv2 - 38)

Hyderabad - 15 Jul 19

So, I am at Hyderabad as I write this. And like it or not, I am on OMAD and thus no Biryani is happening. Which is ok. I mean I am not much of a foodie. I love to eat but if I don't get food, I am ok. I just need to keep myself distracted. And thus I am sipping slowly onto green tea (which I hate) and water (which makes me bloated). But what else can I do?

Ok, so when I travel to different cities, I try and meet people. I would’ve loved to do so this around as well but I am not sure if that can happen. This is a quick in and out trip and I will not have time to meet people. But I did a post on WhatsApp that I am here and see who all will write in. Of all the responses I got, the one that made me most glad was from this girl that did a live project for me at C4E. She is probably my biggest advocate. I need more like her.

What was endearing to me is that I was able to make such a connection with her that despite her busy life and a million other things that affect a young person, she remembered to text me when I said I was in her city. That says a lot. If I were seeing this from outside, looking at myself, I would be impressed! No kidding! I just need to scale this.

The other thing that I am thinking as I write this, is that I'd love to have a business that makes me travel the world and meet people and experience new things. Like a guest wrote on one of my previous letters that we need to keep adding stories to life. The next story I want to add to my life has to be of abundance and prosperity and connections and growth. Get the drift?

The last thing I want to write in today's piece is that I really really love the idea of being able to afford the luxury. I know there are people that can survive and even thrive with whatever limited they have. But I need my space. I need comfort. I need to be able to use the best of the tools to create things. I mean if I were making the Taj Mahal, I would probably wait for the right chisel and hammer. I can't write on a Windows machine. I need a MacBook Air. I need a Starbucks, not a CCD. I need fast internet. And not the slow 2G shite. Got this chain of thought because I am sitting at a comfortable lobby of a fancy hotel at the most upmarket part of Hyderabad. Of course, the client is paying for this. But the point is, I love material comfort.

Truth be told, I can't afford a lot of it for the time being. But the hope (which is a big big idea for me) of a better day in the near future keeps me going. I hope it's around the corner. Inshallah, it is. Till then, over and out. See you guys tomorrow.

As always, thanks for reading.

Thank you for your patience and time.

STREAK: 9

PS: This may not be a lot but I had to write this to keep the streak going. You will tolerate me for this. No?
