Managing Festival Blues – Festival time around the corner!! The pressure of many things builds on. You have moved out of your nest to find a living, leaving behind all your good old days with family and friends; fighting with your sibling for that one flower pot, spending time with your family eating that yummy Christmas cake, or enjoying every bit of your ammi’s delicious biryani.
You miss them all. Festival is a time for many to go back to their nest to relish everything which you had in childhood and which you are missing now. But everyone is not lucky every time to enjoy everything.
Sometimes times you encounter that your roommate is leaving for his/her hometown and you have bundles of work pending to finish by the weekend and you are alone. What to do? What to do? what to do? You curse your boss, your work, the festival to be in wrong time and in the end yourself to be working at the last moment. Eventually, you lose interest in working as you miss going home, feel sad and bored in life. So this Festival Blues.
