Good Bye to Bangalore & a warm Hello to Hyderabad

After almost 6yrs of my journey in Bangalore now I am returning home, it’s a strange feeling when one part of your mind say’s it’s time to move and another part of mind say’s no no wait I got more to show…it’s a tough decision like many other’s in my life and I think like always I made the best choice. It was an internal struggle with in my self and I am thankful that every thing is turning up well.

I am leaving Bangalore for a lot of reasons, it has been 6yrs that I left home and I learned a lot during my stay in Bangalore, the city and people here taught me a lot, in fact I took a rebirth by creating the identity Raghava. I came here to make a career and live a independent life because that was the most worrying part, finding a job was not a easy task, after attending more than 42 interviews I finally got one which I liked and later I moved to a new role which I love. Living alone and managing my daily routine was not an easy task, I struggled, screamed, cried and cursed on the amount of hard work that I needed to put to get things done. Some times the hardwork is paid off in some sort of reward and sometimes it doesn’t, I am becoming blind that is not a easy transformation to go through….when ever my eye sight dimmed little I need to learn and relearn each aspect of my life, I don’t like it but to move forward I never gave up, yes it took time for me to cope with all these things never the less I came back with more will power and strength to fight.

This time I made a choice to move back to Hyderabad because I felt I need some rest from all this mental stress and need some space to think on my future plans’ am moving for my family and to get some ayurvedic treatment done at Hyderabad so as to sustain the little eye sight I got in my left eye. In Hyderabad I will have easy life and I am sure I will have more time to do other things that I wanted to do always…I don’t have to make plans to fetch break fast, lunch, dinner or make necessary arrangements for traveling, looking after the house hold needs etc…I will be in the protection of my mother, father, sister and Balto my dog, I miss them a lot and I was never able to express to them. It’s time to be with family and understand them because they are the one who suffer when something happens to me here…all their life is here and they constantly keep thinking about me all the time.

Bangalore has blessed me with so many friends who were there when I wanted them, who tried to fulfill my desires, dreams, who took care of me during the events who ran with me during my marathon trainings, who helped me to reach my destinations, who helped me trek etc…I love each one of you and will never forget any one of you…It is here where I tasted success, triumph over my disability and sense of pride with each achievement , every word of motivation and every bit of learning that I got from people and the city helped me go places where I never dreamt of. it is here I saw people dream and work hard towards their dreams which helped me to dream big and make that 101 bucket list…I hope each one of you will stay with me during my journey and will be there beside me when I wanted…

I am leaving Bangalore for few months as of now but need to return constantly to work with my team here. so I will be visiting Bangalore frequently and we always can catch up for a coffee or a snack…in this world of technology often people say we don’t miss each other and can keep in touch through phone calls, emails or facebook but remember there is always that personal touch we miss, that makes all the difference..
