After getting my feet getting hold on to my new shoes, I gave jogging a serious thought and started running every morning at boat club road. For some two days, It was fun jogging but the thing I wasn’t accompanied and I have to do it all alone was quite boring. After all how many times will I see grandpa and grandma slowly walking and now and then a female will cross over me. It was quite boring and so I decided to go to the beach today. Wow. It was quite a happening place, that too at five in the morning. There were copious no of people each preoccupied with their own activities. You could many running, jogging, kids skating (you have a new skating cornet opened in the beach), students playing cricket, beach volley ball, shuttle, yoga, kick boxing. This is one happening place and this wasn’t like the beach which I used to see on Sundays where it is packed with couples kissing and hugging each other.
The Beach - Tuesday, January 17, 2006 -
But one thing I noticed this morning was a Model. I was just walking along the shore where I saw a photographer busy shooting her snaps. First thought some stranger was just taking snaps of some girl who was playing with the water, but then after a moment I realized that it was for some magazine covers. Today only I came to know that modeling isn’t quite that much of a easy job, well within a minute you have to show numerous expressions, jump, kick, place yourself in so many positions and adding to this you are surrounded by hundred of people with all eyes on you.
It was very demurring for her to pose for photos and she was constantly looking around and was irritated by the sight of many people watching her. She also was conscious about her dress since she was wearing just a sleeveless t- shirt and shorts and after every time she jumps she has to adjust her dress and again jump one more time. It was quite awkward for her to do so. I have seen this scene only in Fashion TV, but I witnessed this today in the beach and never thought this is quite a tough thing to do. After some half an hour or so she became literally tired.
So I said to myself all jobs are shit.
