Secrets of love…

•September 26, 2010 • 2 Comments

“Love” is a kind of strong positive emotion..a passionate feeling of affection which binds two hearts.Words of wisdom says… “love is unconditional” .Most of us claim to love the people we love “unconditionally.”Although I am not a genius at it…….but utter honestly I have never felt anything remotely close to it…..

Persons fall in love……because they are attracted by some of their lovers qualities or simply feel worthwhile in their presence….Why?Because somewhere deep within the mental harmonics get tuned……..It is also said that love is blind….now that is something I know to be true…Sometimes we love to “love”…we start loving all aspects of our loved once so much so that we even start ignoring there faults…but then?We expect….we wish to get back the same in return,else we feel insignificant,betrayed……aren’t these “expectations” turning out to be the condition???Even when we say….”I love my friends”….we actually mean to say that “I love their company”…..Feeling good factor comes in…Doesn’t that mean that we love the one and the only one person in our life and that is “me”…myself..and these are the methods we apply to keep “me” happy…most unknowingly though…….Further when we say….”I love her….because she is my mother”…..means, I wouldn’t have loved her if she was someone else other than my mother……….Are they not conditions being attached to it????Can we truly love someone totally out of blue?????

However we don’t really want to reveal these facts…….but there are always certain conditions attached to each  and every aspects of our life….no matter how hard we try or want it to be unconditional………..we always desire……with great expectations.And if these expectations remain unfulfilled………love fades……..So??Is love really unconditional????You never know!

Then again, there are exceptions……. perhaps I am too  young,inexperienced or incapable to figure out the mathematics behind it……but I am more than willing to accept the fact that love is divine…………………….

Extra…activities

•July 20, 2010 • 1 Comment

I was always fascinated towards all these….the so called parts of our life………the activities we like to designate as “extra”…..extra curriculum…things we optionally add to our résumé .

To keep me busy with the creativity,I possessed inborn….from my childhood,the guiding hands of my parents lead me towards all aspects of life….and I was never being bored with these joyful moments, painting…singing…dancing…reciting…..swimming…and so on….besides my studies,these were like a real boost of motivation….which kept me energized like a catalyst.They were my soul pass time…my life.Don’t know how…I gradually fell in love with all these…..but as time pass by….. and with the growing pressure of academic, as I grew old….I felt somewhat like sandwiched….I felt my back pushed against the dead corner of the wall……I decided to compromise……by and by I have to let them all go….the most cherished parts of my life,and now they are totally gone…And if you ask me why???…I would rather say…to have a secured career ,a well established future….I switched to pursue B.tech.

I can still hear my 90 years grandfather’s promise ringing in my ears….just before my school leaving exam is about to be held.”I am going to reward you for each letter marks you’ll get in your ACADEMICS!”…For the time being, I felt my schmaltzy…moved by his words….
Now, at this matured phase of my life I can realize that these extra curricular activities are rarely capable of making one’s both ends meet….not really…not at least in our educational system…Yes…even after the revolutionary production of “3 idiots” kind of film,and the alarming rise in the believers of ‘All izz well‘,these phrase practically don’t work…not until we have a proper education policy. On account of reducing the excessive pressure and stress that students encounter in this present system of education,the ministers and his authorities hit the wrong point and want to discard the concept of examination!Which add to its misery,why?Because these pupils,who will grow up without knowing the concept of examination….will be far more prone to examophobia in real life when they’ll try to opt for the competitive job exams.

Instead,there is an utter need to put these extra curricular parts into the light of co-curriculum so that students interested in these may actually take up these streams for their higher studies.The so called extra-curricular activities can no longer play the second fiddle in this fast changing society.

Virtual E-world…

•June 26, 2010 • 3 Comments

“Hello!!R u on9??”…………Oh!Yes…….these are the common lines….I come across almost all the time…and these words do sometimes find me in a blissful state of mind.When I feel too much frustrated and bored with my solitude……these words really seem like a lifesaver……..I am in love…in love with this e-world…………..

While turning the magazine pages of Saturday’s newspaper…my reluctant eyes suddenly met an article……”Effects of social networking sites on today’s generation“……the rise of virtual world of love…….and to my immense excitement it’s the principal of my alma mater who has made few comments on the topic…..but when I ended up with it,I was startled to find that it has highlighted its ill effects  rather than pointing out the advantages………yes life has turned complicated…which leads to several mis concepts……………and I can’t simply deny those facts and throw them into the garbage.The illegal intrusion of under-aged children in these  orkut and facebook….and adopting the behaviors of their so called seniors… might often unknowingly lead to a defective mutation of their mentality….their characters…..

It’s being said that nothing is perfect….most of the things we come across in life have some pros and cons and it’s we who can rectify the error parts of it.The technology of this e-age has not only bridged the distance between our closed ones but….it  has decayed the barriers…..the uneasiness…the fear which our parents encountered with their elders…in order to express their thoughts and emotions in the deepest core of their heart…Yes..they showered more respects to their elders….but this showoff perhaps sometimes…compelled them to hide their feelings form their near and dear ones…..here is where these chat rooms come….which  can act as a tool  enabling them to communicate more freely….helping to pacify this discomfort…Sharing different thoughts and perspectives aiding to enrich our view towards life….

I feel that we, the young blood has started treating their elders more like  a pal than anything else….the feeling of secrecy has gradually faded,due to which we fail to show adequate gratitude to them..but do we really  disrespect our guardians??

What are we going to do??Are to going to stop adopting this new techniques…??Shall we prevent this globalization…and lag behind the rest of the world??? In today’s nuclear society….we lack to communicate properly even with our relatives…..and this is how most of us try to satisfy the insufficiency….to thrive on a harmonized planet.Isn’t it exactly what we wanted??Lets give it a thought!

Father’s day??

•June 22, 2010 • 3 Comments

20th June….Oops!It was the father’s day……..& I missed it once again…it so happens!People,so close……so much related..tangled up with our own life….yet,So…forgotten!Sitting back and pondering upon the thoughts….in my leisure…I made up my mind……What is to be done with it? Dad,the most bosom person in my life so far….the person,I feel free to ventilate all my emotions……who is always there…waiting for me to run into his arms and receive the warmest hugs and kisses.The only person on this mysterious world to pamper me.

In my flashback,I can still visualize myself as a toddler,new to the concept of education…..scribbling gibberish on the pages of my flamboyant text book.When asked  to practice handwriting with my father’s aid….I simply took his indulgent hand into my left…and continued scribbling with my right hand,to my mother’s dismay!Yet never incurred his ire….yes..this is how I shared my childhood with my father….giggling all through….

Unlike others,he never insisted me to become someone “perfect”….instead,he taught me to be what I am…..He was the first to show me the bright sides of life…..it was he who taught me to be optimist.”God set up tests for us to pass and it’s our duty to accomplish those task honestly.” is the instant message he convey to me often, in spite of all the frustrating outcomes of this bitter life….perhaps it’s not bitter at all….it is sweetened with the unconditional bondage of love,trust and delicate care….which has grown so rigid that it’s hard to let it go…….Isn’t it my Father’s Day every day???Which ends with the well wishes and sweet blessing he murmur every time for my well being??Who knows…..

Trust is the smile of a baby..when you throw her high up in air and she laughs with the belief that you'll catch her again....

Waka Waka…..do it!

“Sound of music”……….vibrating throughout the world……filtering through the nation…..binding no bar….flowing and overwhelming with the rhythm of joy and enthusiasm….spreading the World Cup fever…….pervading a strong spirit of unity…….and it all stats,with this sweet coherence of “Waka Waka” by Shakira,on the inaugurating ceremony of FIFA World Cup 2010…What ever be the medium of convey….what ever be its language,the colorful integrity and musical beatings are strong enough to create  an optimistic environment…a positiveness engulfing its surroundings….needless to say compelling us to shake a leg…and feel the rhythm.

Edutainment

Aaahhhh…………..!! What could have been much better than this….in this hot sultry summer?Air conditions running at 17 degrees….we all are sitting with our back stretched against the comfortable chairs,….ready to relax at least for three consecutive hours.No!I haven’t accompanied my friends to a cozy,luxurious movie hall…This is our Technical Report Writing and Language Practice Laboratory,shortly TRLP lab session of our 4th semester’s B.tech courses.

Time pass by in its usual slippery manner,….we are heading towards our final goal of life,…..our destination…but….how much do we really enjoy our studies??The thought haunts whenever I feel like I am burdened…….syllabus piling up,choking me throughout this short 6 months interval.Perhaps we,the so called,engineering students need a break .Want to sprinkle a tinge of salt & pepper to add color to this boredom?So,what about this humanity lab?Isn’t it energizing?Isn’t it interesting?Isn’t it fun?…………………………………..Entangled in the complicated circuits of ALU and ripple counter…. stuck in the middle of the lengthy programming codes….I find this TRLP lab quite exciting.Apart from proividing us with mental relief and healing the day’s apathy this lab helps us to think freely….let loose our imaginations and drench with creative thoughts.Besides,the active participation in the aspects,like drama,story telling,group discussion and presentation,which acts as an aid to be more free with our classmates and unknowingly teach us to work in groups,the soothing songs and humorous cartoon videos meant for our listening skills are just awesome….and make us laugh through all the failures of life. All through this lab somehow motivates me to pump up with double energy to go,for the rest of the day.It’s like an enchantment,which sometimes makes us realize that we do not thrive only on calculations and hardcore engineering subjects but its a small outlet to show our interest towards the literary works.

But…..but in spite of all positive parts we are once again trapped in the game,the game to top the list, by beating others, in marks.The achievement of one brings about a failure in others.The magic is somehow lost,pushing us once again to the reality,making us realize that life is a competition…..life is a race.

Goddess Saraswati……the goddess of knowledge,education,establishment and achievement…..rather the goddess of reaching the ultimatum. …the final career goal of our life……thus it is considered to be the ritual of the students,who are pursuing some sort of education or  the other…and perhaps the only festival….we,the youngsters…consider so seriously…and take active part in it…..and like all other years 2010 is not an exception…….While preparing for this occasion, a strange thought suddenly struck my mind……I was arranging the flower,decorating the place with “alpana”……the essential part of the puja…..the conk shell drew my attention….an unparallel…auspicious blowing instrument for the hindu ceremony………

This might be an oxymoron…..the species which are so…helpless,dumb…..struggling hard for their survival in the harsh marine life….sometimes trying in vain to prevent its soft body from the adversities of life by hiding in the tough protection of its shell…….. which is used as a shield to conceal its vulnerable delicacy in hard encapsulation…helping it to rest in peace from the turbulence of life……. The same shell…..the same shield…which was used to hide the presence of its owner,is now used as an object to reveal its presence….its  existence in this queer world…..by spreading its deep…audible,pleasing sound….a totally unheard fact to itself…….isn’t it strange??? …..strange indeed….perhaps the mysterious destiny for this sea inhabitant……
