The year 2022 started for me with a love affair with a school teacher from Odisha. I never thought I would fall in love again, but it happened after 30 years of infatuation, which failed in 1998. The school teacher I fell in love with made me go through several emotions in February 2022 since we met on three consecutive days on the 12th, 13th, and 14th of February 2022. It was an exhilarating experience to meet a girl after 12 years of celibacy. Strangely, I was out of this world as per Google Timeline for three days though I was consciously working for my favourite employer, Infosys. My mobile was not switched off, but I was down and travelled to another parallel Universe. Maybe my love for this strange lover brought me back to our Universe.

I know you are waiting for the Deja Vu I mentioned in the title above. I will come to it in the next para. After lots of emotional trauma and my attachment to my lover, I left Infosys’ contract position very strangely. After leaving Infosys, my lover discarded me from her and my dreams, as my parents were against me marrying her.

So, my upset version got insane, and I travelled to Tirumala on the 12th of April without being accompanied by my parents, against the plan. While climbing the hill on foot, I needed cash in my pocket. I still had food using PhonePe. I reached the top after 8 hours of an exciting journey. I got my head tonsured that night and found no room to sleep but a public hall. After having a big fight with the Authorities and shelling Rs.10k, I managed to get the Darshan ticket for the next day. I woke up the next day after 4 hours of sleep and had a head bath before leaving for the preplanned Darshan of Varaha Swamy, followed by that of Venkateswara Swamy. After lots of patient waiting, selfless prayers, and donations, I entered the compartment where the Deja Vu began. In this compartment, I was shocked to see the same scene I saw five years ago with my parents. Except for my missing parents, I saw the same couple dressed at the same place and a widow with her naughty daughter playing around, in the same manner I recollected five years ago. Having been surprised, I enquired the widow about her trip to Tirumala being the second one. She replied angrily that it was not her second trip to Tirumala but the first one after she lost her husband in The USA. This was a Deja Vu that repeated after five years of my Balaji Darshan.

Later after leaving the compartment, I had Darshan of Venkateswara Swamy also in a strangely close manner and was pleased to be blessed by the Pundits there. Believe it or not, the Deja Vu I mentioned is accurate. Om Namo Venkatesaaya!
