Breakfast Babble is ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up (or not) for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.

The art of daydreaming. A skill often dismissed as a waste of time or a sign of laziness, but for me, a connoisseur of a wandering mind, it’s a superpower waiting to be unleashed. As a person with a knack for embracing chaos, let me take you on a ride through the wonderland of my scattered thoughts.

I’m sitting in the office, supposedly crunching numbers, but where does my mind wander? To the bustling streets of Mumbai, where the chaos reigns supreme and the traffic lights are merely suggestions. While my boss drones on about deadlines, I’m mentally navigating the maze of honking horns and rickshaws, dodging stray cows and roadside vendors selling everything from chai to chappals. 

But hey, who needs Excel sheets when you’ve got the entire plot of the latest Bollywood blockbuster playing out in your head? Move over, spreadsheets, my mind is busy choreographing elaborate dance sequences and scripting dramatic confrontations between the hero and the villain. 

And let’s not forget the joy of Indian weddings, those extravagant affairs where chaos is not just tolerated but celebrated. As I sit through another endless ceremony, my mind takes flight, planning my own hypothetical wedding with all the grandeur of a Karan Johar film. Who needs a budget when you’ve got dreams, am I right?

But it’s not just about escaping reality; it’s about finding inspiration in the most unexpected places. Like that time I got lost in the labyrinthine streets of Old Delhi, only to stumble upon a hidden gem of a street food joint. As I savoured the flavours of spicy chaat and crispy jalebis, my mind whirred with ideas for my next culinary adventure.

Sure, some may call it a lack of focus, but I prefer to think of it as multitasking at its finest. While others are stuck in the monotony of everyday life, my mind is off on a wild goose chase, chasing dreams and catching butterflies. Who needs mindfulness when you’ve got mind wander-fullness?

So, the next time someone catches you lost in thought, just smile and nod, knowing that you’re harnessing the power of your wandering mind. Embrace the chaos, for amid madness lies true genius. And if all else fails, there’s always chai and samosas to bring you back to reality.
