a prayer

Changes are subtly taking place. I love it all. Things long forgotten are stirring again. Each day is a new beginning.

But there are tough adjustments. Like making it to the gym at the crack of dawn. Waiting to pounce on one of the treadmills. And watching in amazement as new people walk in everyday. Gym in the morning means sweating alongside men. Some really unpleasant smelling ones with no sense of hygiene!

Lord, you have always stood by me in my hour of need. Now please show these men the true meaning of deodorants.

Nowadays, the only exercise for me is sprinting or somersaulting to the main road before the cab reaches. I won't even try once to go a little early.

BTW, the Valentines post was very sweet.

well jaisa bhi hai at least you HAVE a gym to go to. humare yahan toh there's one apology of a shithole of a gym like room, which is stuffed with so many people two minutes there and you'll lose weight without even trying because the blood drains out from your body.

LOL...Anumita, that was a good one' really unpleasant ones with no sense of hygeine'.:)Can imagine the scene pretty about asking one of the deororant companies to do an ad in the gym,and instead of payment, give free deodorants to the smelly ones.U can be the one who goes 'Arghhh se ahaa tak'.:)what do u think?

You should try getting into a local train around 6 these days...on second thoughts, dont. You might faint from the fumes. But it is admirable that you are going to the gym despite all that :)

The worst is when they lift weights and the stench is enough to make you want to pass out.

"the true meaning of deodorants"

That is an amazing phrase, if you think about it. One could launch an entire ad campaign around it!

alapana: Thank you for praying for me!

abhishek: I would probably die if socks started stinking!

parna: Being brave doesnt help. Am trying to be smart :)

Noojes: Thank you, dear, for understanding :)

Arunima: Thanks. I was on elevator-rick-elevator exercise till I had to buy new clothes all the time.

Rat: you bet!

nish: I admit, i have a great gym and great instructors. It's not really swanky or anything, but they give personal attention and keep pushing you.

swathi: Dont know, they should actually. Because everytime I almost die in the gym I keep checking on hubby's deos and perfumes and if he's using them religiously :)

minal: Sure Minal. Sent SMSes too.

shub: Lucky you!

sherriff: Sorry men cannot give that excuse "men will be men"!! They got to learn! New job's good. Enjoying.

hope and love: Isn't it a pain!

amitL: Good idea. But too much trouble. I have started overdoing my own deo so that I only smell the air around me. Smart na?

pallavi: Ya. But sweat need not be equal to stink!

anjali: You serious? So bad? You know we have these boards they ask you to use deos. Maybe you could have talked to the managers.

ashish: Yes, I expect the sweat not to stink. My problem :)

Mukta: If you got a problem, you got to solve it baby. BO seems to be the problem and deo seems to be the solution.

chandrika: I know what you mean! But why on earth did you get into a local train at 6pm?

mint: Exactly! I run for cover, weights and all, when I see this fellow lift his sleeveless clad arms!!

amzu: Ewww! It's not the best thing in the morning.

stone: Excuse for what? I am addicted to the gym and have become underweight now.

parmanu: Yes, but dont think any campaign would work with the guys at the gym. They simply dont care.

aditi: earlier than 6am?

jo: Good idea actually. But how do i breathe? And where do you get these clips?

chakra: I have a problem and you are laughing?
