SO WHAT IF IT’S CRAZY…IT’S JUST A DREAM!!!

Dreams, it is said, impart life and a sense of purpose to our existence. We also tend to (atleast happens to me :)) forget the more purposeful ones and remember the more crazy ones. Dreams are also the most potent reminders of the boundlessness of human thought which is probably matched only by the infinite vastness of the universe itself. And trust me the following few the paragraphs will be a testimonial to our yearning for dreaming of the seemingly impossible[:)].
It was a lazy Sunday afternoon (the blame for all the laziness falls on the Sunday afternoon 😀 ) and I was getting extremely bored...

THE ATM AND COFFEE HOUSE QUEST

She had been showing inclination to return home for her birthday so I asked her if she would meet in case she managed to come. She agreed and we decided to meet on the 22nd of January 2010, one day after her 24th birthday.
We decided to meet again at the Great India Place in Noida in the afternoon and she came there just before 1 pm. She was wearing a purple jacket and was looking very pretty (as always). She wanted to withdraw some cash from an ATM and we needed to locate a PNB ATM for that. She led the way as she knew where it was. After some sightseeing at the Atta market we(rather she) located the ATM. When she exited the ATM she came out looking disappointed. She didn’t remember the correct PIN [:D]...

2009-Good Riddance 2010 – Great Expectations

As the post title suggests I am one of those people who firmly believe that 2009 sucked more than all of the other years I have endured and lived through in my life span of 25 years. Seldom does a year that is so dull comes along. Few years have sucked the life of out my existence as 2009 did.
While life remained stable, it was without much fun. I have never spent so much time watching tv as I have done in 2009. Also I haven’t spent so much time craving to rush back to my parents as I did in 2009. I was simply not able to find enough reasons to step out of my flat during weekends in 2009. 2009 was also the first time in my life when I did not have enough friends around me. 2009 was also the year when I realized that NIT Jamshedpur was clearly and by far the best phase of my life...

A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

There is this one very dear friend of mine who is gonnna be out of town for six months due to some professional commitments. She and I decided to meet once before she leaves so that she could take my good wishes in flesh and blood :D. She was really insisting that I meet so I took some valuable time out of my otherwise extremely busy weekend schedule. I did not want her to leave with any regrets and miss me too much…I really care for my friends and she is no exception. Before she says “gasconade” I should get back to business.

So it was decided that we would meet at 1:30 pm on a Saturday afternoon, at the Great India Place...

DEAD ENDS, STONE WALLS AND DECISIONS

Life,however beautiful as it may be, regularly presents us with dead ends and stone walls. Obstacles to our aspirations and our intense desires are not difficult to come by. More often than not they leave us and our loved ones between a rock and a hard place in extremely unexpected ways.Sometimes, it is the indecisiveness or lack of enough strength in some other person dear to us that affects us. Being attached to that person our natural reaction is try and make that person see what we perceive to be as a sensible approach. As we get more and more involved in that person’s troubles and the person does not budge from his/her indecisive approach, we end up feeling the same heat as that person. To be fair, the other person is not having a party either...

My Years In Sem

Class 1: The journey starts. Mrs. Medley , caning, duster makeup, monkey park, picnic to guvvies is what i remember from class 1. I remember my first swimming classes…running and jumping into the pool where mr palmer and mr gomes would be waiting. Lunch breaks used to spent playing footta or “hand cricket” on the basket ball court. Mrs Medley had quite a personality and i dont think there was a soul in Sem who didnt fear her.

Class 2: Mrs. D’Raunjo. Mostly uneventful except for the unusually high number of students from other classes who would come to borrow chalk or the captains who would jostle with each other to be able to come and make announcements. Didnt know then that she had a simpler name “Dingi”. Remember her as a nice lady and teacher...

WHY…MAYBE…JUST MAYBE

Have you ever felt so smitten by someone that you can’t , despite your best efforts, cannot stop thinking about that person? Even when you know that there nothing in your power that can make the other person to be more responsive if not reciprocate? This kind of craziness can really drive us crazy and I am learning this from a grueling first hand experience. I mean weaving such dreams is not far from lunacy but there is a certain sweetness in the pain. Am I turning into a sadist?

Why does my heart refuse to listen to my brain? There is a disconnect between my soul and my thoughts and it is a very strange feeling. It is almost suicidal , trying to bear the pain when one knows that it will all lead to nothing but heart break...
