Paanch minute hain tumhare paas! Paanch minute!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:34 am by RJ

5 minutes is 300 seconds – as if nobody knew!! These 300 seconds sometimes feel so long and sometimes just fades away even before you could react. I had tagged Anubha about her take on 5 minutes and here’s her work. Isn’t she the best and cute? Since I loved the topic so much I wanted to come up with my version of 5 minutes – hope you enjoy reading this too!

Ever wondered why this 5 minutes acts weirdly crazy on us? The extra 5 minutes of the morning sleep dismisses quickly leaving behind a not-so-rhythmic sound of the alarm clock. The buzzing never seems to happen when you are all geared up for a trek, a visit to a water park or a hill-station outing. Ever wondered why?

Read on: It’s just not about the extra sleep, it’s about a zillion things that the happens to us in the daily routine. It’s 4:55PM, I am at work, absolutely seeing every second ticking away, but it doesnt’t seem to end. This time, perhaps, the 300 seconds just decided to move at a pace of 3000 seconds! Phew! Earlier in the same day, it was my weekly status meeting and obviously I forgot to get my reports done. For my status meeting at 11AM I started to work on my report at 10:45AM and the 15 minutes just vanished. Aaargh!

Scene this – My friend is smiling and staring at the laptop. I asked him, “Dude, wassup? What are you smiling at?” He responds back, “Arre, woh aanewali hain 5 minute mein!!” He is over-joyous and is watiting for his girlfriend and they chat their weekend away to glory. I meet him almost at the end of the day and he shoots a statement, “Twas so quick yaar!!” (Damn, it was more than 8 hours!!)

5 minutes before a break during a lecture seem so long and the 5 minutes of the break seems shorter. 5 minutes of the flight delay when you plan to meet your girlfriend seem long and the 5 minutes while kissing her goodbye seems shorter.

Ever wondered why? How does these 5 minutes matter to you? Why?

Yet to understand the tale of 5 minutes,

    Your post reminded me of chak de’s “woh sattar minute”.Now i will call it RJ’s “woh paanch minute”.
    Truly, how 5 minute flies by when you need it the most…nobody knows.My 5 minute breaks in between studies is hopeless.It ends up in more than half-hour.Just like this did.

    @Bhav – My title was so much picked up from “Sattar Minute”. Having said that, the 5 min break just flies and the 5 mins to get to the break seems longer. Still wondering why?

    @Anu – I didn’t kiss anyone!!! It was just a random thought – phew!
    Btw, I still like your post more than mine πŸ™‚

    @Vids – I dont mind an extra 30 mins of sleep every morning :).
    Let’s all concentrate on the tale of 5 minutes and not on kissing! was just a random thought! πŸ˜€
