Good Old Days

 Life. It starts with babbling and in no time reaches the age of full grown and mock speeches. A part of growing up, one thing people want to give up after finally having attained it. When exams seem a big load, and job a forced necessity, quite many of us find solace in the snippets of past. 
The past that was our childhood. From all the best memories we ever make, the ones that put a silly smile on our face are of the days we spent in knickers and frocks, and yes, with two ponies (girls, of course). We clearly remember the joy on getting a brand new bicycle, for the thrill of which we would sneak out of home while elders used to drown themselves in an afternoon nap. And as the evening would set in, we’d prepare ourselves for a cycle race with our neighbouring pals. Those races were our definition of a tough competition. And winning wasn’t always important. It was the time we got to cycle around the locality, that concerned us.

The door of the waiting room

The blue coloured uniform clad watchman opened the door as I marked my steps. The sun was setting in peacefully yet he had decided to wear over-the-top black shades. Inside, there was a huge Ganesha idol just next to the reception, I stood there and tried smiling at Him, a practice I had long forgotten since I gave my last college exam.

What's your success

When was the last time anybody asked you about your recent success and you answered the commendable yet unsurprising like, claiming a graduation degree, an award, a high paying job, a house property purchase or anything on those lines? Well, question me in return, and my latest success (latest!) that I’ll mention would be- One, I took a long run, 5 km, this weekend, without stopping, exactly as planned. Two, learned how to ride a bike, a motorcycle, since I always wanted to borrow my cousin’s Avenger. Completed a book in less than the predicted time. And to my own surprise, for once, at the end of the day, checked off all (read ALL) the ‘to-do’ things on the sticky note.

What the Relatives !

In this cobweb, we have been ensnared for centuries. You don’t even need to walk into it. You simply have to take birth as part of one of the many family trees and you are trapped already. Those are the sentiments of today’s youth. They are not to be blamed because they are constantly forced to drink the venom spewed by the many uncles, aunties, their lads and lasses; some stay close, some seven seas apart. But they are always observing your every move.
It’s not all that bad, really. Once you learn to squeeze some benefits from them, you have the last laugh. Here are some such utilities.

Things to make the world a better place

The recent series of incidents have forced us to rethink of ourselves as a nation. We are living in a country where girls and women are fearlessly raped, people are undergoing forced Islamic-baptism and the youth is busy enjoying Comic-con and planning for the first every Tomorrow land carnival in India.

Something is wrong! Something very important is missing! A sense of responsibility and a sense of belonging are missing. We turn patriotic on only days like Independence Day and Republic Days. We need to be more patriotic if we want to make our country an epitome. We need to be more responsible and Now that Al-Qaeda has announced their Indian Wing we need to be more alert.

Man and Science

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep.
Let us celebrate today, the ingenuity of the biggest creator on Earth, a man.

I am a Man, the most intelligent creature created by God himself. Art is pleasure, invention is a treasure. Let me take you on a journey of exploration and art that traverses through the ages and celebrates how mankind  has changed our lives both creatively and practically.

Reasons to read

"Its a waste of time,"said my friend and the first thing that came to my mind was-talk about words hurting!
Being an avid reader,I took personal offense at my friend's words but I nevertheless prayed the holy Lord to bless his poor ignorant soul. Later that night,I couldn't help but wonder,how many people out there really considered this divine activity of reading as a 'waste of time'?

So here I am,as the defence for those helpless li'l books and articles which are ignored as nothing of importance,pointing out why reading is not only a good activity but also an important one.

When nothing seems to work

                    When nothing seems right in life there are always two ways to see things, say the ones who have been through, gone through. These two ways are; either look at things in a positive way or a negative way. But when things go haywire, we generally have more than two ways; looking at things in a confused way, irritated way, sulking way, stoned way etc. Here are a few options you can try when all you see is a void, and nothing traditional seems to work.
                       1 Now, when one can fall into so many ‘not so amusing’ situations then whom to look up to and where to get that mindset that can make one see those ‘one better than the other out-of-the-box’ way of dealing with the situation. The brawny ones say that meditate if you are way too ruffled in your shawl (it is symbolic, means if you are too much troubled). Hmmm… I did try in the times of crisis, you too can. Results... Well! They vary.
