A living person I would like to meet: Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.He is a living legend.From a common boat owner’s son to the India’s most distinguished living technocrat and then the President of India.He is the best.

A dead person I would like to meet: Charles Babbage…the father of the computer.

An event in history I would like to change: The decision of allowing East India Company to trade in India.

A movie I would like to witness in real: Nayak….we want our politics in good hands.The decision of IIT guys about building a political party was rocking.But due to some reasons,that party failed before it could set an example for us.

A literary character I would like to meet: Howard Roark….he does whatever he wants to do.

Fun….we are always told in childhood that we should enjoy every moment of life but not by making fun of others.Others shouldn’t feel bad.There is a limit which should never be crossed and if crossed at any point of time can result in serious consequences.Who gave  us the bloddy right to make the fun of others?The first point is……where does it start?Who are the victims?Everybody knows that we do this to those,more precisely,we “can” do this to those whom we think are our close friends but the point which never comes to our mind,which we always forget is “There is a limit to everything”.The repetition of this sentence may not sound good but this is the only point which is coming to my mind and which I want to stress.As far as I’m concerned,I do this a lot,making fun of others without thinking about the consequences,without thinking or trying to think what they feel,without giving stress to mind to think when that limit has reached,without trying to know what is going on in their mind,without knowing what they are thinking about me,without thinking what I would have felt if they would have done this to me,what would I have done in such a sorry situation?The second point is……why do we do this?Number1–> Because we want to enjoy their helplessnes….Is it??No,at least not from my side.Then what?A tad too tough question?Anyways,still I will try to give the best possible answer whichI can think of.The point is,we make fun of only those who are our good friends and we enjoy making fun of them,may be because they are somehow special to us.The intention is not to hurt but to enjoy which is not the case most of the times and we are not able to realize that.Then what to do,should we apologize…the toughest thing in the world?I can’t.I know that it’s wrong but still I can’t.I leave it to the time…”Samay ki marham har zakhm ko bhula deti hai”.When I play T.T.,if somebody hits fast,then I hit the ball with atleast twice of the original speed,without thinking of the consequences and most of the times it doesn’t go to the table.Similarly,if somebody gets angry,instead of apologizing,I also get furious…really very bad but I can’t help.The thing is “Zakhm bhar jate hain par nishan rah jate hain”.So,the best thing is to use the magic word “Sorry”.Here,I sincerely apologize to all those who felt hurt just because of me and I’ll try not to do that again but I know that I can’t help it.So,u guys,better be careful next time.
Enjoy Felicity.


Dreams and Ambitions

September 13, 2006

Bhaiya raised his hands,”sorry yaar,you’ll have to wait for sometime”.Excitement in Manish was at fever pitch but the site was acting like devil as it was too busy.Suddenly the phone rang,…Oh-no…crap…I hv screwed myself…I can’t do anything…I’m a mere burden on this earth…these were the thoughts which came to his mind after listening to whatever the caller told him.
Manish was enjoying his holidays at Sangroor after toiling for 2 years and now waiting for the results to come.He worked really hard during these two years to get an admission in IIT.IIT…IIT…IIT…Oh-He didn’t know when it became an obsession,a mania for him.24×7,he used to think about IIT.His aim  was none other than IIT and now,the day of final judgement,for which he was anxiously waiting had arrived.His excitement had no bar.Bhaiya was trying for more than  an hour but the site of IIT was too busy to open.Suddenly,the phone rang,this was his dad.His mother was standing beside him eagerly waiting for the dreams of her son to come true.But the God had decided a different future for him.He was  dumb at listening the awful result.His father was trying to console him but to no avail.His face was empty.His mother took the receiver.
He didn’t want to perceive his ears to which he had listened just now but he had to reconcile himself to the fact that his dreams of getting an admission into IIT were shattered into a thousand tiny pieces.Although he knew that his maths paper got screwed up,the subject in which he was most confident,but couldn’t write the correct answers(although he knew them) as his hands were shivering like hell,but still,he was anticipating atleast some rank,not under the delusions of grandeur, but the reason being,he matched his answers on sites “xxxx” ,”yyyy” and so … atleast a 50 times.But  now,nothing could be done.The result was irrevocable.He was disgruntled with the result.
He was trying to choke back his tears but his mother knew what was going on in his mind?She caught him weeping red-handed.”Oh-maa,I’m ruined.I wanna go home right now.I can’t afford to waste my time.I have to study a lot to have my name in the list of top IITians next year”.She was already anticipating these words from his mouth.She tried to calm him.She said O.K. and they left for home.
Listening to what happened in Sangroor,papa said”Beta,you have got a very good rank in A.I.E.E.E.-you know that.Of course,we(Papa and muma both) have full confidence in you and you can do whatever you wanna do but listen to me just once.By chance,(Bhawaan na kare)if you don’t get a good rank in IIT and A.I.E.E.E.,the next year due to some  unavoidable circumstances like health problem,then we know,what will be your condition.One more thing is that you will remain in constant tension (we know you) which we won’t be able to see.These were our views but still,the final decision will be yours.Well,you can prepare for IIT in whatever college you go to.It’s your wish”.
Manish understood the matter and chose IIIT to be his final destination(for atleast 1 year).But,he liked IIIT so much that he dropped the idea of preparing for IIT.You can easily find him saying “IIIT can be compared to any of the IITs.It is even better than some of them” in the campus of IIIT.But he knows that “a tag of IIT” matters for sure and this thing will keep pissing him off in future also.

This is not just the story of one boy,but you will find a lot of variants of it.Well,I speculate the guy/gal reading this must also be having some similar story.


Rubbish Stuff

August 14, 2006

What is talent?What is the definition of personality?Whose personality is considered to be good?Who is creative?Who can take the responsibility?Is a guy,not having any kind of talent,not having a charming personality,not having any kind of creativity,is credulous also??I guess in most of the cases.And this is the only reason for his failure because he readily beleives in whatever is told to him.He does whatever is asked to him-doesn’t matter whether that is wrong or right.He can infallibly be termed as a lapdog. He merely becomes a follower.Is he really not having any talent?
Is it true that he can never do anything in life?Is really personality matters so much?Are all the talents just directly related to personality?Is it true that the person having no personality has no talent?Are his talents concealed by his personality or he really lacks them?And what about his creativity?Oh,i’m sorry,I forgot that how can a person not having any personality,not having any talent,can have creativity?Is it true that such kind of person is just a burden on this earth?
What is the reality?Where lies the truth?Is his shyness and modesty are the reasons?Build is the reason.Attitude is the reason.Or there are some more serious reasons.Is his habit of trying to be overfamiliar with everyone the main reason behind this thing?Is it true that you should “Try to be familiar with everyone but overfamiliar with none”?Is this also true that you should “be courteous to all but intimate with few”?Is intimacy with “many” pays or it is the courtesy which always pays.Or the root is lying somewhere else.
It is usually said that every man(of course women also) is born with a talent.All he needs to do is to realise that and devlop it to the greatest possible extent to turn out the things in his favour.This is true or this is also a fake statement in case of such kind of individual or the staement is true but he is an exception to this rule.Oh,,he is an exception to all the rules of this world.He can’t live here.This is completely a different world.He is a real stranger to this world.His world is different.Either he has to go to that world which is not possible or he has to live according to the rules of this world.He will have to modify himself.He needs a great transition,a big one.He will have to work for it 24×7.A lot of work.Work,work and more work.But in the end,he will find himself at the same point.He is a fool.He will realize that he was moving in a circular path.He can’t do anything.


Why we are lacking?

August 12, 2006

Have you ever thought in what things we(Indians) are lacking and why??Let me throw some light on it.
India a country of millions is not able to win medals in Olympics,India a country of millions have won just 6 noble prizes till date(excluding V.S. Naipaul who is a British writer of Indian origin) and many other such examples can be easily  quoted.Why is this so? Most of the people say that we lack in resources.Do u think that this is the reason for our failure or there is something more than that?
What I personally beleives is that we are lacking in attitude.We have the guts,we have the resources,we have everything necessary for success except a positive attitude.The whole world is running on the mercy of a few leaders like Bill Gates,Newton,Einstein etc–>people having a positive attitude towards success.Such people are able because they think they are able and we are lacking in such kind of people.
We are lacking in leaders who have the self confidence.Most of us just want to remain a common man running after the pleasures of life.Most of us think the work as a drudgery that has been thrust upon us.

My soul asked me to write this article because I recently encountered some events which were clearly indicating the lack of self confidence.We had to do an assignment to make a shell.One of my friend said “he thinks(prof.) that we have become so much good”.I thought that we are going to become software engineers and the people who are doing this job are not much differnt from us.Then why we are saying “we can’t do”….
“Never say die”.
You may be disappointed if you are failed but you are doomed if you do not try.We must remember that we learn to walk by stumbling.Every failure is a stepping stone towards success just like while compiling a C program,error comes.Then you make corrections.This procedure repeats itself sometimes and in the end,you emerge out as a winner.If you don’t start a work just because you think that it will be a failure,then remove this misconception from your mind because a dictionary is the only place where success comes before work.The greatest failure is the failure to try.Never wonder how to do a job,just start and wonder how you did it.The urge to become someone amongst many has its own charm which shouldn’t be resisted but supported with all the powers that you possess.All the things are going to succumb before your hard work.Don’t cry on failures ….”Let us learn from the past to profit by the present and from the present to live better in future”.
Well,I’m not saying that just Indians are lacking this attitude.Of course,most of the people dwelling on this earth have the same problem.But,the awards are clearly indicating the fact that this is a major problem with us.We have to develop the self confidence,enthusiasm and a positive attitude to emerge out as leaders on the face of earth.

Happy Independence Day(in advance)
