Happy New Year 2016... Bye Bye 2015

Another year is just about to past... Well for me this year was special as it was silver jubilee for me and here I am who is just scribbling my second post this year I think; that’s so lazy of me.

Hmmm let’s take a rewind of this year, anything new – perhaps no is the correct answer. Did I learn anything new – perhaps no this time too... 

I was thinking that way too but there were surely the persons who made me learns something not new but to master more keenly into whatever I am going into.

The biggest finding for me this year was meeting of our beloved Physics sir from whom I got a chance to learn dedication towards our work. One more finding as a friend in the form of Manish Mishra... 

Started this year by joining Dhenkanal students who were brilliant actually, so here it is the rewind of my year 2015 in the form of best, good and not that so good moments (I’ll not call them bad).

Not so good moments:
•Obviously the  biggest loss is living dur bahut dur of family
•Vidaai from Raj…

Today is your day...

Hey, Today is your day
You've got things to do; places to go
Because yesterday's gone and tomorrow's far away
But today, you'll take that road the one that excites you

You'll take it, if there is not one; you'll make it
Today you'll abandon all reasons and explore the unknown
You'll write your own story and watch it unfold
 You'll speak a new language and hear it echo

Today, you'll make conversations with the wind 
And find silence in the mountains
You'll dance with the earth and course through trails

You'll count stars and be outnumbered by clouds 

Today you'll be a giant 
You'll be a million wildebeests on a rampage
You'll hear your heartbeat like a drum
And feel your breath in an instant

Today you'll find strength and yet be humbled
Today you won't just live, You'll come alive..!!

Dr. Abdul Kalam's Letter to Every Indian

Why is the media here so negative? 
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? 
We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? 

We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice. Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit.. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. 

I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. Th…

A full black out night exploring sky..

I was about to off to bed after watching IPL game between Royal Challengers and Kings XI, as I support RCB it was not less than a nightmare and suddenly electricity went... Agghhh so I decided to go up on terrace and have some cool air, I did my bed with mat and a pillow on floor and laid down watching towards sky.

It was half-moon bright in the western southern sky, possibly a ninth day towards Full Moon. Countless stars were twinkling some were faded by moonlight and the others who were in opposite direction displaying their brightness with full dignity. I was just watching and there were millions of thoughts scrolling in my mind like these stars, I just stargazed and thought don’t know what and I even didn’t remember when I fell asleep.

It was about 4 in the morning, I felt need of water so I rushed down to get a bottle, no electricity till now so I went back to terrace and laid down again and started my job of overnight.. Stargazing. Now it’s completely dark and clean sky as moon h…

Winning is not everything, It is the only thing !!

Winning is the word we listen daily, think and plan about it, our fast running life revolves around this word; everyone here and there is running in some competitions or preparing to do so; everyone wants to win but what actually the meaning of word ‘winning’ is and where lies it’s worth? Winning is totally subjective thing and it differs person to person as it might be very crucial to win a race for an athlete while it meant to be life for someone to save his love or clearing his exams. 'Winning to me is not to stop trying.'

“Most people give up just when they are about to win, they quit on one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.”   ~ Ross Perot
Ingredients for recipe named “Winning” 

As we all know what winning takes: discipline, self confidence, strong will power, talent and lots of hard work but there are some other ingredients which will affect the results and enhance the probability of winning.

Nokia IndiBlogger meet: Your Wish My App Season 2

I was so excited to attend the event as soon as I registered for this one; this was my second bloggers meet and first to a kind of technology based. I was expecting a super fun evening with lots of innovation and it came with none less than what I expected. The show began with an introductory presentation which illustrates what Indians are actually capable of, wonderful app ideas and Nokia making them into reality.
Thoughts turning into reality?
As an engineering student with computer science, I thought most of the ideas will be only about system navigation, application interface and social networking blah blah blah, but the ideas proved me wrong. As the name suggests “Your Wish My App” whatever comes to your mind or whatever you need will be converted into reality. Nokia representatives described the importance of innovative thoughts of Indians and what could we achieve together. I was just shocked by the responsive success of “Your Wish My App Season-1” held at Bangalore, there were s…

I Hate Number Two

Number 2 or position second only means compromise and compromising is the thing that doesn’t suit virtue. According to our so called ethical value system, our main purpose should be of performing, not where we will reach (as also called we should only believe in our karma). Yet it is a kind of way how one should be satisfied with his status after knowing that someone has went past ahead of him. But truth lies somewhere else, it brings a feeling of compromise in the competitor and he starts losing his focus.

As filmed in movie “3 Idiots”, it is true that most of people don’t remember the person who stepped second on moon or the person who is commanding the Apollo mission and only revolved around the moon, did not land on moon. According to them, they did their job at best that time; but on a larger scale of time, people only remember Neil Armstrong because he was the first one.

Yet it is called so unrealistic if I would say that everyone should approach for the number 1 as everyone can…

Recharge your hair, Recharge your life !!

“Di, where are you, Di?” I shouted as I was home, throwing my bag on the bed and rested on it searching for my laptop. 

“What happened? Kyu poora ghar sar pe utha ke rakh rakha hai?” Di replied as she entered into the room. 

“Look at this Di, my classmate told me about this, there is a contest ongoing on IndiBlogger entitled ‘Recharge your hair, Recharge your life’. She wanted me to write about this, I laughed a lot till I got an ache in my stomach and made fun of her. I will write over this, huh! I am a boy, how could she expect me to write over such a girly thing?”

“What a nonsense! Who said this is a girly thing, don’t you have hair? I think it is good topic to discuss.”

“You think so because you’re a girl Di, I am a boy and you know very well how boys hate this makeup and all… we just want to play and do mess up our hair, it’s not a big issues for us, who cares about looks. But girls are like ‘oh what done to my hairs, I am looking junglee!’ you can’t expect us to do all these things.…

My top five offbeat Bollywood movies

Bollywood means drama, action and Yashraj type romance pack movies and it’s a style ‘Bollywood style’ but now days Bollywood is changing its trend, recently we have witnessed a phase where Hindi cinema doesn’t comprise of mainstream Bollywood movies. There are a number of directors and actors who are experimenting and coming up with more meaningful cinema. Here I am listing my favorite off beat Bollywood movies which made me think, which touched heart with a sense and off course made a huge impact on changing cinema and its viewers. 

English Vinglish: Directed by Gauri Shinde, story revolves around self-esteem of an Indian housewife. She doesn’t know English language and often taunted by her family and fellows, first she ignored it, then tolerated it and finally she decided to fight for her virtue. A true masterpiece I would say. 

Paa: A very rare father son – son father story directed by R Balakrishnan, a storyline on which hardly any movies there in Indian Cinema, illustrating a real …

Taste of Failure

Quite boring topic, isn't it? Well for me, sure… Then what the urge to write about failure, hmm don't know exactly but I am feeling a bit low today and I want to scribble something and the thing strike this devil mind is "The taste of failure" 

Why failure has a taste though, why it is not just come and go, why it has to be dilute into the nerves of person; but no its the superpower of failure that it will not leave you so soon, it will make you feel low, feel guilt and moreover it will mark a question on you and your esteem and what you can do that moment, just go straight along the path not knowing where.

How does it feel when you have left behind by miles when other drifted apart; how does it all take to face that person who suggested you earlier and now if you face them, they feel it is their mandatory right to lecture you about their future vision and your responsibilities; how does it seems hard to tell your parents that you are failed agai…
