I picked up phone half asleep and heard a familiar voice. It was Anjali. My heart skips a beat, whenever I hear her voice. What else could be better than waking up by the call from the love of your life.
In breakfast I'm got buffet. I'm having lot of meat in the breakfast, lunch and dinner since the time I've landed in London. That's like too much of non-veg for me. I'll try to avoid non-veg for sometime now.
Time to reach office by walking is 15 minutes. The actual beauty of this city can never be explored while being in cab.
Started my office with daily scrums, had lot of arguments with people. I met VP engineering in London office. This is the same guy with whom I was working in Gurgaon office around 10 days back.
Rupesh had tough time today. He failed to communicate his problems to people while being on one on one discussions and got whiplash in return. I too took over his task and checked-in the code, in front of him. This made him super annoyed.
I had veggie roll from chilango in lunch. That costs me 7 pounds approx. But that VP engineering swiped his card as I was accompanying him at lunch.
It was quite cold in afternoon. I felt like having scotch but as the office is yet to get over so quenched my desires by just having cup of tea at Tiffin box.
Rupesh and I left office by 5:30 pm and met one of Rupesh's ex-manager whose name is Kavitha. She's Tamil and from Bangalore.
While walking down the road I had a quiet thoughtful conversation with Kavitha about "are people coming to London just for money, leaving there own country or is that the culture and freedom along with all superficial aspects like cleanliness, weather, equality and discipline compel them to not to go back to their country ?"
I got my oyster card today for 35 pounds. I traveled in tube to bank till Red Lion court just to accompany Rupesh. He wanted to meet his ex-teammates just to cry about his situation.
I got Whatsapp message from Anjali.
Tu hasrat purani, tu aadat nayi he...
Yakeen to dila de tu he ya nahi he..... 💞💞
It made my day, as it's hard to make her express love. But whenever she does, I go sentimental. She's the one who I always wanted in my life. Now she's there, I afraid if I don't end up saying something that make her change the decision. I really love her.
I called Anjali and had chit chat while being on my way to Red Lion court.
Our distant relative Shubhra called me, checking about the details about my place of stay. She also stays in London. Not every Idiotic relatives is meant to be get in contact. I'll try to avoid her.
We took bus number 15 to Whitechapel. It was a double decker bus just like one from Harry Potter movies. It's clean unlike the one there in India.
Met Aslam outside my hotel. Had a cheese burger from Whitney Market in dinner.
Had a video call with Anjali. It was around 4:30 am in India and she was half asleep. But was looking extremely beautiful over the call. Thanks to advancement of technology I could be able to see her on video chats. Her face reminds and motivates me to work hard for our future while being humble.
