Chapter 1: And so begins the story…

Life is shrouded with mysteries, what exactly is Bermuda triangle? Who build the Easter island? Did Neil Armstrong ever land on moon? Who was the brave head who took the leak on the moon? Who wiped out the dinosaurs? Why the hell am I sitting with a cup of coffee on my desk on a pleasant Sunday morning, while the person who told me to be here is someone enjoying the Sunday morning cuddling with his wife?


I knew it was a wrong decision when when I chose to join a MNC just after college.  I sold my self for money and big bucks, and here I am, spending a pleasant Sunday in the office. 
So I am Rahul by the way, a computer nerd by profession, making big bucks on the computer and living in the IT hub Pune.
I share a apartment with my train mate Ketan, who works as… oh well, you won’t want to know… well, frankly, even I am not sure what he does. Really what does he really do? Anyways we can investigate later. So anyways, we both share the same room and the same train since last five years, funny story how I met him thought, but that's for later.
So, here I am, holding a hot cup of coffee in the office doing a ghost shift, you know like its graveyard shift, weekends is the ghost shift, where the only people who come to work are watchmen, cleaners and ghosts.
I have been working with the semi-American software company for past year now and really have no clue as to why I am doing this?
So let me brief my life with you, I am in a 25 hrs working job, not seeing anyone, not even close on asking a girl out, live in a studio apartment with one more dude and am working in my office on a Sunday afternoon. Pretty cool eh?
Ok I got a family, my parents who live in Mumbai, my sister Tania who also lives in Pune, as far away from me as possible. She is seeing someone, I think. I got a maid, Shanta bai, who comes an goes as she wills and has more freedom in her job than I do.
Well, you know this story may be wrong in many sense, but you know in some little sense at some point, this story may be right…
That’s the whole point, stuck between the heaven and hell, stuck between good and evil.
When you are growing up, your family explains you that anything you do is bound to pound you in hell. You tell a lie, you go to hell. You drink beer, you go to hell, you kiss a girl, hell it is. Man, hell does seem kind of overfull.
But the more you grow up, all the things come back to you. You lie, yes you tell a lie, maybe for laziness, maybe for a leave, but you lie. People drink beer around you, you go for a sip, the next thing you know, you are a regular on a drinking bar. Kiss a girl…lets talk about it later. Now, the problem is, do these thing still take you to hell?
Well, this is a journey, a journey to understand life. A platform beyond right and wrong to understand love, life and relationship and trust me, this is going to be one hell of a ride.
This is a journey to understand the mysteries of life, so what if they say meteoroid did wipe out the dinosaurs, while we all know it was the ghosts who did it.
So what say, hop in the ride, start following.
