Au revoir NYC

My first NYC trip is coming to an end... will be leaving tomorrow. I miss the NYC subways, squirrels and pigeon in the Madison park, shopping on 34 street, walk in the Battery park, croissant............. :)

I like this place (I like majority of the places I visited), but time to leave...many more miles to walk before the night sets in. And excited to see my people back at home, sweet home.

Bye NYC, till I come back again.


Brooks was sentenced for 50 years. On the day of his release, he tries to kill another prisoner and breaks down. Then Red says " These walls are funny, first you hate them, then you get used to them, then you get depend on them. That's institutionalized".

This is a scene in ''Shawshank Redemption'' which made me to think, are we all under ''institutionalized'' effect? At work, at home... sticking on to something...... getting institutionalized.... without our knowledge?
When I started my job, I thought it's just a stop gap option, then I thought ''Ok, I got settled here, why to hop companies'', and now I think ''what do I do if leave''.

Institutionalization can be both positive and negative. It's all about being aware on what is happening with you, and choose the most positive impacts.

By the way, Raj, if you get a chance', do watch this movie ''Shawshank Redemption'', may be during P2-P3 break? :)
