It is one of those hectic days when I feel weary, Mi. Did I tell you Vidur’s exams have started? Yes, the finals! They started off with English.
We got home at 2.30 pm and were having lunch. I browsed TV channels and found Bruce Almighty was on. Now you know I am a big fan of Jim Carrey and was laughing my head off at his shenanigans. He’s just amazing!
I finished my lunch quickly and was contemplating doing the dishes when a thought occurred to me. Imagine being God. Okay, Goddess. Imagine recreating the world as I wanted it! You know what I’d do for a start?
Yes, yes, I’ve adjusted my halo and have my magic wand poised to grant
…a world without borders
…a peaceful world
…an addiction-free world
…one world, one mother-tongue, one government
…a world without envy and strife
…a world without wars
…a world without crime
…a world without anger
…a world that knows no terrorism
…a world without gender discrimination
…a world where people respect each other
…a world without greed
…a world where species do not go extinct
…a world without racism
…a world without religions
…a world with equal opportunity for all
…a world without corruption
…a world without suffering

Okay, a world with a magic wand that took care of housework!
And where Sury proves the Riemann Hypothesis.
And the Forrest Gump is around.
I can dream, right? And you and I know that dreams do come true!
I guess I’ll settle for an episode of The Big Bang Theory for now! After I wake up from my dream and do the dishes, that is!
