Life is like a remote Control

Remember the post some days back ? (the end of an era!!). So I moved into this new place (Room No 38 !!) and we had our very own house warming ceremony over the weekend.

Chari dropped by to say goodbye to his old place. Sumit was around and Pajji is a defaulter no matter where we go. After a tiring round of shopping at metro we decided we would pick up a game of Scrabble and have a boys afternoon playing it , something similar to monopoly we did some months back.

So we get all nasty with scrabble and while we were into the game, Chari drops my television remote. After a round of good words from me, I check whether that god damn thing is still alive. It was alive alright, but it just got itself a brain surgery. Here is what happened to it.

  • Your normal remote would turn off when you press the power button right ? Mine will turn off when you press NUMBER 5
  • To go to the next channel I must press NUMBER 9 and to go to the previous channel I must press NUMBER 8.
  • To increase the Volume I must press a button called VSM and to decrease the Volume I must press NUMBER 4.
  • My power button has taken Channel Number 3’s place.
  • Button Number 2 will Mute my TV.

So one drop and my entire TV viewing experience has changed. I know its time for me to get a new remote, but I am going to survive with this for sometime. I think I need a change(with a TV remote !! I think I have lost it ).

Imagine you get up one fine day morning and things in your life has completely changed. What you were doing is not what you are doing….what you are not supposed to do is what you do !! how would you handle it ? Would you accept the change and experiment with it or would you crib and cry about it ? I think Life is like a Remote Control.
