The 365 Days by Nandita Narvekar

Friday 23 September 2011 was the day when I, Nandita Narvekar, started my journey for the most beautiful 365 days of my life. Dedicated to all my friends and family… This is just a summary of the days WHEN…

“THE 365 days” by Nandita Narvekar (Human Resource Management MA, 2012)

When the sun rises with different challenges and sets with the satisfaction of overcoming them…

When an unknown smile on the street makes you feel a known person in a different country…

When Google Maps is the most convenient way to reach the destination…

When monthly budgets constrain ones shopping list…

When standing in front of the London eye indicates that you are in London; however, one still needs someone to pinch and say ‘Nandy, it’s not a dream any more, you are in LONDON!’…

When Regents Park becomes the place of solitude…

When one wears the national costume and walks with pride in the Scholarships Reception…

When alcohol, clubs and pubs tried to distract one, but the strong values and cultures overcame…

When 60-year-old-parents suddenly become ‘technologically savvy’…

When one has to find mothers warmth in a duvet…

When a perfectionist father has to take up the role of personal tutor and read out the case studies…

When one has to depend on YouTube to listen to the lullaby…

When a sister and brother-in-law give the best gift in the world but one has to fly 4,477 miles just to see it…

When a ten-month-old niece starts recognising masi’s face on Skype and tries to take charge of the laptop…

When one tries finding their relatives just to eat ‘Ghar ka Khana’…

When one suddenly gets used to washing dishes and cleaning the cupboard…

When overheating food in the microwave causes a fire alarm…

When cooking for friends becomes ones favourite hobby…

When the roommate and floormates turn into medical professionals at the time of sickness…

When one almost enters Paris, gets stuck, and friends are there to laugh and shout…

When BBM, WhatsApp and Facebook helps one stay in touch with the near and dear ones back home…

When five hour Skype calls are just not enough to see the beloved ones…

When one suddenly tries adapting to the British education system…

When words like ‘too descriptive’, ‘critical arguments’, ‘logical structure’ and ‘literature review’ look alien…

When a British professor introduces one in the class as the ‘future Bollywood star’…

When one falls in love with the ‘loveliness’ of the classmates…

When the first failure becomes a motivation of the much-awaited distinction…

When one is on a quest of finding the reason ‘WHY the 365 days’….

And then again one realizes that ‘everything happens for a reason’….
