I Blame My Education System..

It feels so "different"..Well, It's been 3 months that I wrote my last post!!..Gawd!..So many exams..!!..Anyway.. here I am with my brand new post!..

It happened last month when I was checking out myself on a car's side-view mirror that a kid, probably be 5 or 6 years old, passed beside me. He grabbed my leg and said.."Excuse me..UNCLE!!".. I immediately looked down..gave him a contemptuous stare..!..and then again I checked my own self..diligently!.."Gawd.. Have I grown that old!!???".

Let me explain you guys a bit. I don't have any problem with my increasing age or its physical implications. As a matter of fact I prefer people to consider me older than my actual age, prudent, and consequently maturer..!..:).. The reason that incident struck me so badly was that it made me question myself.." are 23..What have you achieved??.."..and the question was followed by questions marks..and nothing else..

I mean seriously, what have I achieved till now..??..and even if I have not..then am I really working to acquire or achieve anything..Do I aspire to reach a destination..Or..let me simplify the question.."DO I EVEN HAVE A DESTINATION????"..

I was 15 when I I needed to choose my stream in school..I chose science without even knowing why I was choosing it.. I finished my schooling at 17 and I never knew what i wanted to do.. I went to a premier engineering college without even knowing if I wanted to be an engineer.. and today I am standing in front of me ..still seeking a destination..

Whom should I blame?..I won't blame myself or my parents for today as both of us did whatever we were made to believe was the necessity and the trend.. I will blame my EDUCATION for not directing me to a fixed source..I will blame my EDUCATION SYSTEM for failing to channelize my imaginations and obliterating them with insignificant "LABORIOUS STUDY".. and making me and my parents live in a fool's paradise..

Just tell me guys..that how many of you are actually walking on the line drawn by your own self??..

Today when I think of kids going to "SCHOOLS" carrying those arduous books..or to "ENGINEERING COLLEGES" without knowing the very purpose of going heart is filled with commiseration..and for our EDUCATION SYSTEM today..I see a Countenance more in Sorrow than in Anger..

Critical Corner: Reviewing Top ten (10) Adventure Movies

I have seen numerous adventure movies..Trust me guys..I am an adventure freak..(only when it comes to movies..!!;))..Anyway...Out of my movies database, I am suggesting you my TOP 10 must-see adventure flicks..and as I always may or may not like these movies..but me when I say they are must-see..they are actually a little bit more than that!!! here they are...!!..Enjoy!!..


It all started with LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING in 2001...and then came LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS and finally came LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING..Its a story of the journey of a young Hobbit named Frodo who is entrusted with a ring and now he has to destroy that ring to subdue and demolish evil powers..Undoubtedly my all time favorite..!!!..You will be completely soaked up and enamored by it guys..It is adventure at its acme!!..

MY RATING : 10/10


AVATAR is a story of a paraplegic marine who is dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission but then things get awry when he gets discombobulated in following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home..Great cinematic beauty..and amazing screenplay..a must watch guys..!

MY RATING : 9/10


A story about a girl who escapes into an eerie but captivating fantasy world..!!..Sounds interesting right..Yes it is..!! Artistically beautiful, imaginative, and totally en-rapturous..!!..Two thumbs up!!!



Hmm..!!..I have loved all the movies directed by TIM be it EDWARDS SCISSOR HANDS..or SLEEPY HOLLOW..or be it CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY..they all have one thing in common..they are all wonderful..!! ..And yes..they always take you in a different world..a world so imaginative and so abstract ..yet so real!!
BIG FISH is probably his best till date..!! least I think so!!



I saw BLOOD DIAMOND with huge expectations..(owing to the presence of Mr. LEONARDO DI CAPRIO..(my fav!!))..and the best part is..BLOOD DIAMOND stood still successfully on my exaggerated expectations..!!!..What a movie!!..mixing POLITICS and ADVENTURE along with superlative acting display!!!..Marvelous!!!..

MY RATING : 8.5/10


Guys..BACK TO THE FUTURE is a movie which I saw as a kid..and even today I laugh like anything whenever I get to see this movie..!!..Its funny..its adventurous..probably the best time-travel adventure movie you would have ever seen!!..Just go and watch it!!



SEAN PENN directed this movie and I never thought it will be such a wonderful movie until I saw it! taught me a lesson..HAPPINESS IS REAL ONLY WHEN IT IS SHARED!!..I won't reveal it will love it..for sure!!

MY RATING : 8.4/10


The movie APOCALYPTO is all about survival..It depicts the very human nature of securing themselves and to go to all extremes to protect themselves..Mel Gibson directed this movie is a sheer gem..something that will make sense for eternity!..



It's a story of a guy madly in love with a girl..but the girl is never serious regarding one day..guy asks that girl to ask for anything she wants so that she will marry the same time..a star shoots from the sky..and the girl says..I WANT THAT STAR..!!..and he promises her ..that he will bring that star for her!!..Awesome movies guys..Its a conglomeration of ADVENTURE + ROMANCE + FANTASY..!!..I loved it..and I am pretty sure that even you will love it!!..



First thing first..I am a biii...g fan of JOHNY DEPP..Whatever he does on screen..I simply adore it!!!.. and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN is his best adventure film..!!(as per me!!)..But apart of being just a-Johny-Depp-movie..PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN scores in good direction..nice story..great characterization..decent sword fights..and yes..ultimate cinematography..!!!!

MY RATING : 8/10

There are many more too..but then these movies score better comparatively!!..So if you were thinking to watch some good adventure flicks..well..I believe I have given you plenty of options..!!..and still if you want more suggestions..I will be more than happy to tell you!!..

Movie : "MR. NOBODY"
Director: Jaco Van Dormael
Writer : Jaco Van Dormael (writer)
Genre : Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Tagline : Nothing is real, everything is possible.

How difficult can it be to choose one thing out of two when both the things are indispensable...??

I read an article in HT BRUNCH..and I just could not resist to express my opinion on it..So here it is..(All the stats and quotes are taken from there only..)

12th March 1930..
Mahatma Gandhi and 79 SATYAGRAHIS left SABARMATI ASHRAM in Ahmedabad and marched to DANDI to protest against the tax on salt, a basic necessity for everyone..

6th April 1930..
By extracting salt from the sea-sand, the first act of NON VIOLENT CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE was displayed..Mahatma Gandhi lead it..and lead it successfully..

He was arrested and his incarceration was followed by all his followers being LATHI-CHARGED..but those followers didn't even raise their arms in retaliation..coz Mahatma Gandhi had urged every INDIAN to do willfully surrender and undergo the movement NON-VIOLENTLY..!!..

So what happened was that swarms of people were brutally knocked down by the BRITISH ARMY..and none of them fought back..they marched..they shouted..they cried..but police methodically beat them..their white clothes were drenched in RED..

An extract from GANDHI'S SPEECH on April 5 1930(before he got arrested)...
.... "If the government arrest me or my companions tomorrow I shall not be surprised, I shall certainly not be pained...What if all the eminent leaders in Gujarat and in the rest of the country are arrested? This movement is based on the faith that when a whole nation is aroused and on the march, no leader is necessary..."

This was a slight snapshot of one of the major risings of our country for the INDEPENDENCE..

Guys,I am actually not a supporter of MAHATMA GANDHI..I hardly believe in his fact I despise him for lots of it curbing extremists..or be it teaching INDIANS how to suppress themselves and never to retaliate..Shedding our own blood...and showcasing our miseries in media to the that they could feel sympathetic and painful for us..Sometimes I realize that probably WE GOT INDEPENDENCE OUT OF PITY..WE NEVER EARNED IT...

Probably, MAHATMA GANDHI just got lucky to be there as a leader at the right time..when BRITISH power was already so much weakened due to World War 2..and they could hardly focus on administering such an aroused nation....

But whatever be the thing is for matter how much I loathe him..I will always respect his ability to INFLUENCE PEOPLE..Come on guys..his followers believed in his words to the extent that they were ready to die for the cause..for the INDEPENDENCE..He gathered masses against BRITISH and lead them in his OWN WAY..He truly was an ORATOR extraordinaire..!..

Today...63 years after INDEPENDENCE..When I look at all the problems and evil practices...forever Inflated Inflation..Impasse Corruption...Indigence..and above all..those bunch of crooked and self centered money collectors or in short ..our POLITICIANS..those who only mean to fill their pockets out of the hard earned money of COMMON PEOPLE.... I just realize that we actually need LEADER like MAHATMA GANDHI to lead us against fight for our our agglomerate us..and to instill a common feeling within that we will become a force to defy the POLITICAL GIMMICK that these POLITICIANS play with us..

As he said ..."..When a whole nation is aroused and on the march, no leader is necessary..."...I cant agree more... I believe.. WE NEED A LEADER..

So this 15th of August we enter into 64th year of our independence..feels great..!! has always been the same feeling since the day I remember celebrating this day!..a feeling of utmost proud and has always been with me..always..(no matter what happens in our country!!!!)..why??..I think..I am proud to be an INDIAN..we all are..Well this is what we always have believed guys..!!..isn't it so??..But if that is the case..then why do we keep ranting and lamenting over almost everything that happens in our country...?????...Why do we keep remonstrating every single thing.???.(I would rather not go into details..!!!!)..strange!!!!...seems quite contradictory in fact...!!..Anyway..lets forget everything..and for that..I will try to enlighten you guys with our FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS .. emblematic of the INDEPENDENCE that we POSSESS..the whole fundamental reason for the celebration of this very day..our INDEPENDENCE DAY..!!...

1. RIGHT TO EQUALITY: Ours is a country of poor..25% are below poverty line(LOW CLASS)..another 25% are just above the line by a whisker..(again..LOW CLASS)!! 25% are those who are able to survive..(sadly..even they are recognized as LOW CLASS)!!..and the last 25% are MIDDLE CLASS + HIGH CLASS..!!..If that division is not enough..then we have the CASTE SYSTEM..(SC/ST/OBC/GENERAL/etc/etc)...Obfuscating these divisions..well..yes..I apparently suppose we are EQUAL..!!

2. RIGHT TO FREEDOM: Hmmm..!!..what should I say..few girls were physically abused and their faces were blackened by some "RELIGION PROTECTORS"..those girls were celebrating friendship day!!..I am reading the cases of HONOR KILLING on almost daily basis!!..Enshrouding these and other similar practices..I think we are FREE!!


4. RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF RELIGEON:..hehehe!!!!..I would rather not say anything on that..(silence speaks louder!!)..

5. CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS: appx 35% of our population(mind it..its a huge number..when I say OUR POPULATION!!!) is illiterate..and other 30% just manage to come within this category (of being LITERATE) by a whisker!!..Well..that is more than half!!..Hide that.. then we have education right too!!..(DISCLAIMER: I am not considering FEMALE'S LITERACY RATE coz the figures can turn out to be insalubrious for the readers..)..

Last but not the least!!!

6. RIGHT TO CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDIES: OMG..!!..Do we have such a right!!!...I never read or saw or heard about it!!!!..immaculately strange!!..Everyone is disparaging CWG..people are railing about inflation...people dying of hunger..(when $6 bn worth of wheat is decaying in FCI go-downs coz of lack of storage..!!)..people are complaining..but government is busy with the HONESTLY CORRUPT PREPARATION of CWG and beautifying PLAYGROUNDS...what the hell can we do???????..NOTHING...Curtain all this..then yes..we do have this right too..(sorry!..I again forgot its name!!!!:P:P)..

Anyway..all in all..if we believe that we are independent then yes..we are..but only to rant..and to suffer..there is hardly any other freedom I can see or experience...sad but true..

I am always intrigued by the people who believe in god..!!..Well I may sound a bit indifferent but just give it a thought.. those who believe in god..they believe that god created this world and whatever they do is actually what god's wish is..!..
and this very thought befuddles me all the time...

Guys..if we say..that god created this world..or even controls this world..or we say that there is a superpower who always know where we are..what we are short ..he knows everything..!!..then don't you think that this very concept contravenes the very idea of our FREEDOM or FREE WILL..!!!???

So basically..when we say that god is the absolute control of eternity..then it means that everything that we do is predetermined..!!.. This idea of things being predetermined if is true then do you think that there is any worth of doing anything on your own..??..Does the idea of FREEDOM to do things on your own..the idea of INNOVATION..makes any worthy sense..??!!!..Well..I don't think so..!

I have numerous examples of people who believe in god completely..who believe that everything that is around us is GOD'S CREATION.. In other words god is the SCRIPTWRITER of this world..Considering this statement to be true..whatever we do is actually PRECONCEIVED and PRE-WRITTEN....

So, if you did something extra normal today that made you feel proud of your own self..then hey..consider thinking again..coz there actually nothing that you are doing is new..whatever you are doing is actually pre-scripted..!!..

This very idea made me question the relevance of my being..that if I am writing this post right now..then it actually is pre-written somewhere in GOD'S script in the exact manner I am doing it right now..The way I think..the way I conceive ideas..everything..every grotesque of an idea is this..I would rather not believe in god..!

INDIA 'ShininG'..POOR 'ShunninG'..!

Visit to discover Indian blogs

Common Wealth Games are coming..and our Delhi is undergoing the process of "EMBELLISHMENT" for the "GUESTS".. So what do we have in stores for them..lemme count..

ULTRA CLEANSED roads(they were already cleaned..but they are rebuilding them!!..).. NEW FLYOVERS(even if they aren't required..)..LESS POPULATED CITY..(All schools and offices will be closed for TEN DAYS..!)..POVERTY-RIDDEN country..(I guess its more of POOR-RIDDEN..emphasis is on enshrouding poor..obviously guys!!..)..

So yes.. our Delhi is getting cleaner..and greener..and better..for the "GUESTS"..We just now have had the inauguration of the 3rd best international terminal...I read somewhere that government has spent $2.6 billion on it..great..!!!!!..So what if food prices are soaring..what if the Common man is failing to survive the inclemency of the inflation..we will welcome our GUESTS with Zeal and Enthusiasm...!!...

Protracted power cuts + Procrastinated water supply + Horrendous Summer + Abrasive humidity is what DELHIites are going through...but nah..that is not important..after all we are used to it right..!!..coz we we need to lighten up the stadiums with exhorbitant lights..see..we value our GUESTS..

PRICES are it any damn literally anything..

I, being from an average middle class family, am finding life getting a bit tougher these days..coz every tenth morning when my dad tells me that "hey..Petrol prices has increased..take some more money.." makes me wonder where these prices will be few years from now..... and when every fifth evening my mum tells me.."I didnt get your favorite pulses..I was carrying just 50 bucks and its price increased yesterday..!!"...I wonder what is happening..!!..But then..I think we all know the answer...

WE NEED MONEY FOR THE SHOW-OFF..and so..OUR GOVERNMENT IS COLLECTING THE SAME..!!.. this justified..???? A developing country like ours..where focus should be more on people and their development..and where government must take every initiative to ease daily living of the common man..the focus has shifted towards placation of the "GUESTS"..!!..Strange..!!

Just a thought..
A middle class family is affected with the price rise even if it is of a few bucks..but after gets used to it..(no other option..!!)..But what about the POOR..??..Imagine..what does he go through when he goes to the general store with 25 bucks to buy 1 kg sugar and he doesn't get it..coz he is being told.."hey..prices increased yesterday.."..I am quite sure..he will find way too difficult to adjust..

So..Is INDIA SHINING..??? I think YES..but only SHUNNING the POOR..

12th July 2010..

Finally I saw "I HATE LOVE STORYS.."...I wasn't expecting much from the movie..(I usually leave the bag of expectations at home whenever I go to watch typical Bollywood movies!! offence!!)..and thank god I did so..!!..

Actually I couldn't understand what they wanted to portray..and even after immense extensive thoughtful thinking..I am failing to decide that in which category or genre I should put this movie I just GOOGLED it..!(u know I am a google-maniac!!!:))and there I came to know that is a romance-comedy..!! is comic..true indeed..i laughed alot..(no pun intended has got some nice one-liners..!!..two thumbs up for them!!!!..with applauds..)..but that's it..there's nothing more..and romance..?????????????....well the makers have actually butchered the concept of love and romance with this movie guys..I will tell you how first let me throw some light on this "DIFFERENT" rom-com's "ULTRA-DIFFERENT" plot...

So..there is this guy Jai(our cutie..IMRAAN KHAN..!)..and there is this girl Simran..(Sonam Kapoor)..Simran has a boyfriend..(who is just PERFECT..!!) from dunno when..!!..she is even engaged with him..and they are totally in love!!!..Simran and Jai are opposites..and she infact hates him alot..and suddenly after she spends sometime with Jai..out of a sudden..she realises that no.. her Mr. PERFECT is actually not perfect for she falls in love with Jai..and then the story keeps on reiterating between LOVE-REALIZATIONS..!!..(and everything out of a sudden..!!)..I think i cant write more about the plot guys..because actually this is the whole stuff!!...

BAD..BAD..BAD!!!..Its a bad product..the gal loves a guy..and then suddenly out of a whim..she starts loving another guy and is ready to dump her fiancee..well i am not against such kind of romance but then please show me the reason me the romance..!!..unfortunately there are no reasons..there are just JOKES..and ONE-LINERS(I told you..they are good!!)..!.. So basically if you are one of those who can spend 200 bucks to listen to some good ONE LINERS..I HATE LOVE just perfect..go on!!..It definitely will work for you..!!

After watching this movie I was thinking what if I HATE LOVE STORYS: 2 will come..well this time SIMRAN will be in love with JAI at the start ..and then some other JAI-2 will come..and again Simran will realise that no ..JAI is not the perfect guy..but she is in love with JAI-2..and then she will this time dump JAI and will marry JAI-2...Well likewise you can think of the storyline of the next in pipeline..I HATE LOVE STORYS: 3, 4,...5..n..!!!..they will be one and the same..just with DIFFERENT ONE-LINERS..!!..go ahead guys..but I HATE such FUGLY movies..because I LOVE LOVE STORYS..

25th June 2010 (Based on memory)

"Do you know the way to Delhi-Jaipur highway from your office..??..If not then do ask your friends..okay..i don't think it's too ask someone..okay??!!"..and I replied.."Dun wry darlin..I will GOOGLE it!!"..

1.6 hours later...

"I told you to ask someone..:-x..damn your Google map..its been about 2 hours and we are still in puhleeeeezzzzz..ask someone.."..and I replied.."Dun wry darlin..I think we are on track..see..we are moving as per given directions..!!"

3.5 hours later..

"We are still in Delhi....wanna say anything..!"..and I replied..
"Lemme call someone..for the way"..

We finally reached the highway in about 4 hours in total..I must have asked someone..but I trusted GOOGLE..anyway..I decided not to trust it again..

1 week later....

DAD: Do you know the way for your exam center or should I ask my friend..??
ME: No dad..dun worry..I will GOOGLE it!..

I am not telling you the time when I reached the center!!!

I realised that we have become so much dependent on GOOGLE that starting from ANYTHING and ending to EVERYTHING..we GOOGLE it..!!!.. So be it show..buying a new mobile..finding addresses..or literally everything..we GOOGLE it..!!!

A friend of mine call this as "TECHNOLOGY SLAVERY"..well I don't comply with her words..!..Yeah..I know that I am almost entirely dependent on GOOGLE..still I dont like the concept of the word "SLAVERY"..!!..Lets call it "DEPENDENCY"..!!(hmmm..better!!)...

Anyway..the thing is that with increasing technological development..and competition..and with ever-changing world around us..staying in the thick of the things is rather impossible..GOOGLE just a helpful tool in alleviating that least the GOOGLE users think so..!!.. So, calling it a 'SLAVERY' will be too harsh and as a matter of fact..totally inappropriate statement!!..

and as far as the "DISADVANTAGES" are's the law of the nature friends..with good things come the bad things..that's how nature balances can't change it right...!!!..

and as far as "DEPENDENCY" is concerned..well as I is a can't just ignore it..!!!..

and for those who believe that they can live without GOOGLE..well yes you can..but I am sure you will hate it soon..!!! what..?? you still don't concur with me..?? okay..then GOOGLE it.."CAN I LIVE WITHOUT GOOGLE?"..!! :-P



Guys..I am starting this weekly post as a MOVIE REVIEW post..
To start with..I will be telling you about the TEN BEST MOVIES that I have seen till now belonging to different genres..and categories....and trust me guys..they are just fantastic..I have a team member from now on who will be helping me in writing these posts..(finally I have a team member..!)..anyway guys..enjoy the stuff..!!

Movie name: MEMENTO
Director- Christopher Nolan
Writers- Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan
Genre- crime, drama, thriller, drama

What if the last thing you remember is the most haunting memory of ur entire life.. and now..supplement it with a condition that forbids you from making any new one, which means u r stuck with that same memory for the rest of ur life aka 'short term memory loss', interesting scenario isnt it...!! This is "Leonard" finds himself in when he wakes up in his bedroom.. That aim is all he has got and it is the sole point of his existence...

The most striking part of this flick is its screenplay, first of its kind and it justifies the character and the plot entirely. The story is being told in a reverse fashion i.e from the end moving toward the beginning.. As an audience we are being put into the shoes of "Leonard" cause like him we too have no clue as to what happened before. The plot calls for so much involvement from the viewer that he/she just cant drift away even for a moment..(PS: it was nominated for the best screenplay written directly for the screen at the OSCARS)... last but definitely not the least..the immaculate performance by Guy Pierce as "Leonard" will leave you spell bounded..!!

It surely will grip u till the very end even when it will get over..there will be constant thoughts that will beleaguer your mind..

Caution: In case u are not in the mood to use your mind..kindly stay away from this can be highly insalubrious for you..!

5th April 2005 (Based on memory..)
Case Scenario: My last board exam..last day of my school life..
Location: outside the gate of my exam centre..(gawd..!..i dun even remember the name of that school...strange:-0..)..

"Finally..exams done..!!.."..I exulted looking at my friends.."Yeah..I have my few days are gonna be fun..!!..Guys..WE WILL BE IN CONTACT..ALWAYS!!..

2 months later.. I cleared DCE..(Delhi College of Engineering..for all those who in case don't know the term DCE!!)..

17th August..
Shifted to hostel..

After few days.. suddenly, life was different..I wasn't able to make friends
in college/hostel..but I was kind of enjoying being alone..!!!..I didn't want to go fact even the idea never ever crossed my mind..!!..but yes..I used to call my mom on her cell phone on a daily basis ..:)

After few weeks.. I got busy with I started calling my mom on her cell phone once in 3 days..

1 year later..Finally I made some good friends..Life got busier..u know..FRIENDS + HOSTEL = a BUSY LIFE..! Now my mom started ringing me up on regular basis..coz I was so BUSY..that I never remembered to call her even once in 3 mom is so very understanding..she understood that my life was changing..and that I was MOVING ON..!!! ..

Few days later..9:30 AM..(Phone ringing)..I was sleeping..(probably half-slept)..

ME: "Hello.."
SPEAKER: "Sharad..Its me.."
Me: "Yeah..Hii..!!:) are you??..long time..!!"
SPEAKER: "Yeah..actually I called you many times..u never picked my call..and you have even stopped calling me on my phone yes..obviously..long time..!"..

and suddenly I realised..that I used to talk to the SPEAKER..(cant reveal the name guys..inconvenience regretted!!!)..on a regular basis..(Infact we loved conversating with each other) till I came to hostel..!!..and after that ..we hardly talked..and yes..the speaker did call me many times and I never attended..I was busy obviously..!!..and then I realised that life had moved on!!..things had changed..priorities had changed...

31st May 2009..Last day of my college/hostel..

"Guys.. WE WILL BE IN CONTACT.. ALWAYS.."..I said to my friends when we all were leaving for our homes..

20th June 2010..CHATTING with one of my college friend on FACEBOOK..
ME: Dude..its been like years that we saw each other..lets meet..and call everyone..!

Visit to discover Indian blogs

Date(Probable): 12th September 2008
Place(Definite): BCH Hostel Room number 401
Condition: Me on my bed..thinking..

"What the hell I am doing in this college..???"...(i did tell u about my habit of talking to my own self right?..i call this self introspection..anyway..carry on..!)

"Its been 25 interviews now..and I am still unemployed..hmmm..I dun think m gonna get any job from this college..hmmm..."..and then suddenly i remembered something..and then i called my friend.."Hey dude, how much will the CL Test Series cost me??..I have decided..I AM GOING ALL OUT FOR MBA..YES DUDE..YOU HEARD IT RIGHT..ALL OUT FOR MBA..I AM NOT SITTING FOR FURTHER COMPANIES..!!"..
I was pretty confident regarding that..I always have been like that you see..I believe that I have strong decision making skills..and I also believe that I am quite a determined person and once if I decide to do something then I will definitely do it come what may..!!..but this is just what I believe..actuality may differ ..99 percent times it does..but still my belief has stood unshaken in spite of all odds and all the failures..:)..

9:00 A.M. (Phone ringing..!!).."Hello..What..??..But they were supposed to come by 10 right??..yeah yeah..OBVIOUSLY YAR..I WILL SIT FOR THE COMPANY..AND WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THIS DUDE??..I AM STILL UNEMPLOYED."..

10:45 A.M...I was giving the written exam..

1:00 P.M..."yeaaaa!!..written cleared..just an interview and I will be through..!!"

5:00 P.M...(called my dad on his mobile..)"Dad..Interview got screwed..Dun worry..I have started preparing for my MBA..NO MORE COMPANY INTERVIEWS..FOR SURE..!"...


I am still trying for my MBA..m not unemployed though:)..and yes..I have joined the test series too!!..

Hmmm..!!..I dun know why..but this thing has always been with me..lack of determination.. and if i am not wrong..i can generalize this statement for most of the people in their earlier 20s ..!!!...

We always know what is required to be done..we even know how it has to be done..we also know that we can do that thing..but still we fail to do..and our focus keeps on oscillating!..Why..??..I call it the HYPO-DETERMINATION SYNDROME..(HDS)!!..

1. Out of a sudden feeling of a belief in your own self that you can do anything..literally anything..!
2. Suddenly feeling happy and relaxed in spite of all the conundrums around you!
3. An instant feeling of exaggerated confidence..making inconceivable promises with people..and own self..

Last but not the least..

4. Excessively abrupt use of GOOGLE..for supposedly determinant searching for SOMETHING!!!!(its the most dangerous of all..)..

If you have any of these symptoms..then sadly and unfortunately you are suffering with HDS my friend..!!..

and if you are infected..dun worry..cure is not that difficult..!!.. It will just require a flashback of thoughts..!

Okay now just relax..take a long breath..close your eyes..think of the things that you were thinking few days back that suddenly converted your impulse into a determination...and now stop..!!..this is what the reality is dear..forget everything that you thought after this are cured!!!

DETERMINATION is a very heavy term asks for hard work..honesty..and your does not suddenly pops out but it takes a lot for its inception... A determination can take you even to the unmeasurable heights..on the contrary..a whim or an impulse..or an out of a sudden "determination"..can only waste your time..!!..BEWARE!!!:) time!!.. movie for the day is CINDERELLA will get to know what exactly the determination is!!!..its awesomely awesome !!

I remember the day I got my first bicycle..I was in 8th standard..(yeah..I learnt cycling that late u see!!!)..I was so happy dat the moment I saw my dad with that black Hercules sporty bicycle..I just snatched it from his hands and took it to the park only to realise that hey..I first need to know how to cycle it!!..I decided and promised to myself that I will learn to cycle in next 15 days...I remember that on the very 16th day..I went to my school on the cycle..!! cool right!!:)

After 6 months my school changed..and now I had to go on my school bus..8 AM to 3 PM I used to be in school..then coaching and then home..studying..doing homework and then sleeping!..I was not getting time for my beloved cycle and I knew that..but couldnt help it..and then time went by..Whenever I used to see my cycle lying at a corner I could see my relationship with it fading..It existed obviously..but was it the same??..The answer was no..the cycle and I were separated by the distance that was created by the circumstances..I am not blaming anything or anyone..but how does that make a difference..!!?? my relationship had weakened..! And then I got a scooter..:)..I dun even remember what happened to my cycle after it!!

Actually I have a very simple explanation for this complex phenomenon..We human beings hate distances..we hate it coz we are extremely poor at maintaining LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS..When things are around us..we love them..understand them..develop a bonding with them..but then when they go away..we tend to forget them..though we try our best to keep them alive in our memories..but only for some time..coz after that we lose contact..we almost cease to love them..we fail to understand them.. (though we try our best not to..but all our efforts fail infront of the distance!!)..and then those things are replaced with some other 'INTERESTING' things.. once again..I am not blaming anyone or anything..Its just the way we humans are!!!..we hate distances..we love to be loved!!

This relationship can be with anything ..your old guitar..or ur bike.or ur car..or anything..try using ur old computer at home..u will definitely find it difficult to locate the folder you last stored your data into..and on the contrary..just take out your new will exactly remember where your songs are..where your movies are and etc etc!!..The point is that when you get distant with something..u start losing its memories..and this memory loss aggravates with time!!..It doesnt mean that you totally forget things..(obviously you wont forget ur computer or how to use it..!!)..but then on the other hand, u hardly remember anything!!..silly human mind!!

So, when my friend and her 6 years old boyfriend..(who shifted to some other country) broke up..I wasnt at all shocked..(I was sad though..and i felt extremely bad..)..

They had their reasons for breaking up obviously I dun know them..but then whatever the reasons may be..I am pretty sure that had they been with each other they would have figured out a solution for staying together..but then the distance factor played its dirty part..and that is pretty obvious took me six months and my relationship with my cycle was gone!!..Now try to understand here..cycle is static (a non living thing) doesnt have any bondings or anything lively..Now if the DISTANCE FACTOR can ruin my relationship with a static bicycle..imagine what impact it can have when it comes in between two dynamic(read non-static) lives..two human beings..and they wont even be able to resist this distance factor coz as i earlier explained..the memory fundamental..silly human mind u see!! will forget matter how much you try!!

Now you might be thinking of giving me examples of the people (read couples!)..who are maintaining distant relationships..Well I never said that it is impossible to exist..(there is always room for exceptions!)..tell many happy couples can you think of who actually maintain a good healthy happy distant relationships.!!??..And even if they do..then do their relationship possess the same charm..if they would have been together??..Well I fail to agree on that..Do help me guys..I definitely need some orientation..! the movie time..!! I love this part!!..There is a movie called "Cairo Time"..You will understand what distance can do even to hugely strong relationships between two human beings..and what if the distance is agglomerated with something 'INTERESTING'!!

CASE SCENARIO: 3 years back..month of May..blazing front of my college gate at DTC bus stop..

About 16:00 hrs (based on memory!!)
"Its been an hour now since I came here"..(I have this habit of talking to my own self..I do it on a regular basis in fact!!).."I am tired..I am not going by this bus..(now focus on this line..)GOD! PLEASE SEND AN AUTO..PLLLLEEEAAASSSSSSSSE!!"..

16:05 hrs (for sure!!)

"Oh!..THANK GOD.. finally an auto is coming.."..(it was the first auto that I saw in last 60 minutes at the end of the road..and then it came nearer and I got up..I waved my hand..and then....and then it went away without stopping..!!!!)

I looked up and said..
"Thank you god.. for SENDING an auto..after all this is what I wished for..!:-x.."

Had I wished..”God!..Please send a vacant auto that will stop infront of me when I will be waiving my hand..and will take me to my home safely..securely..timely...and obviously by meter..!!”..then probably the story would have been a matter of fact, I am pretty sure regarding that..!!!

See, this is what I call fundamental art of wishing..and u know what..if you are proficient in this art then trust will get so very easy for you..
PS: God listens to you..always..and if you dun believe in god..well then you can say..that there is someone like a WISH GRANTER..whatever you wish for..if he/she listens to will be granted..and in the exact manner you would have absolutely exact manner!!..

So, basically if you are running with high fever and have taken an off from your office..and you wish something like this..”God..please get me soon as possible.”..then there is a very high probability that yes you will get better.. pretty soon infact..but then after 2 days..when you will return to ur job..u will find loads of pending will wake up for nights to cover that up ..and ultimately out of tension + frustration + time lag, u will again have a feverish body!!!!.. but then you cant blame anybody u see..!! whatever u asked for you got what happens after that has got nothing to do with god/Wish Granter okay!!..

At the start of the 4th year of my engineering, I realised I cannot do a job related to engineering!!:P..I wished just for 3 things ..a job which wont be technical..which would be interactive and which would pay me well..!!..After an year..I got my first job at Aakash Institute as Mathematics Faculty with a salary pack of 6 lac an annum!!!..It wasn't technical + it was interactive + it was a well paying job indeed!!..well..i joined it..and after 3 months i resigned..!!!!! Reason: I realised i can do alot more than just teaching..i m not deprecating the teaching job..i respect it alot..!! what I mean to say is that by being there I would have restricted myself to teaching only. I hate such restrictions ..When I know I can fly then why the hell should I be satisfied by the idea of hopping..!!!..

Anyway.. dat is not the point..the point is that if I would have wished lyk.."give me a job which will satisfy me completely..U KNOW WHAT I WANT..READ MY MIND.. HEART too..!!"..then probably i would have been in a better state..!!!..But then, I never knew wat to wish for..I was ignorant of the art of wishing..But now I know that!!..So, now..when I am standing at a bus stop..then instead of wishing for anything..I just say.."*To whomsoever it may concern!!*..Hey..You Know what I want..just give me that..!!!"..I think it is working!!..Well I manage to get autos on time now!!!:) the movie time..Movie for the day is "INTERSTATE 60"..a fantasy/adventure/road trip kinda stuff where a guy is in search for the answer to his questions with life..and he meets a WISH GRANTER!! Interesting right..!!! is..go for it..and from now on...keep know ..READ MY MIND..HEART TOO!!!:)

Impossibilities of the Possibilities!!!

Protected by Copyscape Duplicate Content Detector

Lately I am spending a lot of time in mah car..(well thanks to Delhi’s extensive and exclusive traffic..!!).. So basically when i am stuck in those unceasing jams ..I am forced to do nothing..absolutely nothing!!.. By doing that nothing..i actually do a lot of things..!! well starting from the worst..I waste mah time..(immaculately precious time!!)..I frustrate mahself..I look out and try to figure out the reason for the jam..I drink water..I check out myself in the back view mirror..again and again..and then when I see some movement.. I start mah car and after those disengaging 3 mins..I am again forced to do mah ‘nothing’!!..

All this makes me realise one incapable we humans are.. see I cant do anything but have to wait for that vehicle infront of me to move on..and till it doesnt move..i am forced to do nothing..!.. its like doing stuff you dont want to do..but then you dun hv any option but to do that only ..u may feel frustrated..disappointed..helpless..but thats all..!!.. the sad truth is you cant do anything bout it..!!!!

Have you ever thought about it!!??..have you ever been confronted with such case scenarios..!!????

They say dat if you have will power then u can achieve the impossible..!! Really??..Well i have a doubt regarding this saying that "u will achieve impossible"..this sentence is actually eradicating the concept of things to be impossible..!! Well, if you can achieve a thing in any way it extreme hard work..or miraculous will power, then i will say that nothing is impossible..and if nothing is impossible..dat in simple English means that everything is possible..and if that is the case..then can somebody please explain me the concept of things being impossible..!!:-o..m confused!!!

Guys..i know m sounding like a m not..!..i believe in humanity..and i am an immensely optimistic person..but i hate the fact that there is hardly anything..(as a matter of fact.. there is nothing!!) that we have control over.!!.. you may drive ur car in the most perfect manner..but can u extirpate the possibility of an accident..nopes u cannot!!..coz it doesnt matter how good u r driving..if someone else's car will hit upon wont be able to do anything..!! can you understand the incapability of human beings m talkin bout..?? we merely are like puppets who don't control anything!!

Take any damn situation in your life .. ur exams..a day in your office.. a meeting..ur relation with ur friends..anything..and tell me do you control anything??!! Can u guarantee me of 100 percent marks in ur exams even if you study everything perfectly..??..well u cant..!..infact forget about 100 percent marks..can u even guarantee if you will get the marks u deserve to get..!!?? u see..we banal beings can never be sure of anything ..literally nothing!!..

Now..the question is..if we know dat we dun have control over things..y do we keep on doing the same things always the same way..well i knew dat i didnt control the result of mah board exams..still i studied for them..i know i dun control the possibility of an accident when m drivin mah car..still i drive it..!! why???

Well.. i have an engineered way of answering this question.. see.. try to correlate human mind with a if you have programmed that computer to work in one particular way..then it will always work in that way..without even considering the effects that work will bring out..similarly our minds are probably programmed the same way..we keep on doing the stuff the same way as if following a procedure..!!..the only difference is that we can think..but then does that thinking capability helping us anywhere..??..

Now u might be hating me saying all these things..i know..!!..but please feel free to correct me if i am wrong anywhere!!.. for the day is "OCTOBER SKY"'s one of the most inspiring movies ever been made..and it shows how a thing that seems impossible can be made possible!!..well i know..the movie goes against the stuff i have written ..but see as i said..i m an optimistic person .. and believe in humanity..i totally appreciate if someone shows me the way to achieve impossible..infact everyone of us will love it..right??..but hey..tell me the way which is actually possible and which can guarantee me that yes i i will put in the effort ..i will get the deserving result..i dun ask for more..but give me atleast what i deserve..Can anybody guarantee that..!! I m afraid if there is anyone!!..

Happy To Be Single??

"How can people live without a girlfriend or a boyfriend??"...Lemme rephrase the question...
"How can people live all alone without that "special person" in their life?????"

I was rumbling my laptop keys when this question was thrown at me by my friend ..!!!
A good question indeed..but was a little tricky one..
Anyway..I will be telling you what I answered..but for that i need to first rewind the time 4 years back..!!

I loved everything about mah college..!! Yeah..even those boring lessons (probably coz I hardly attended them..!! :)..Infact I have a strong connection with mah college..!!!!(well.. I met her in mah college itself!!)..!! College corridors, canteen..(it is called the "MECHanical CANTEEN"), T5 canteeen (it is like couple's mecca!!)..Computer center..even T&P (Training and Placement dept), it gave me mah first job !... can I forget that place..have spent hours there with her!!!:):) ..well it was the only place with AC..!!.. Basically..I loved everything bout mah college.. literally everything..!!

Did I forget something.. yeah I did..but I didnt forget it..I have just kept the best thing for the end..or I should rather say..this post starts from here!!!


Living in hostel is one of the best things that has happened to me in mah life.!! It has changed me to a remarkable extent..I remember those friday nights when I used to sit for an hour and used to decide the movies that I would see in the coming two days..!!..I remember when I used to spend hours just talking to myself and thinking bout just anything..!!

Friends.. Freedom..Abundant time..hostel life gave me everything and I loved everything!! Best of all...It made me fell in love with my own self..!

So much so that I started disliking when mah privacy was infringed by any means...I didnt want anything..I was happy to be with me..all alone..just with me!!

Trust me guys.. it was all fantastically fantastic..until I met her..!!

Suddenly.. mah whole world changed..mah life was no more personal..the boundaries were encroached..the walls were broken..and she rampaged into my niche world.I hated her for doing that.. but..more than that ..I realised ..dat I loved her..!!..

and then..(flashback the present time..!) the rest is history..!!! the problem in this story is dat if I really loved mahself so much then how could I allow her to enter in mah life..!!..Logically speaking..I must not have done dat..still I did it..infact I started enjoying 'my' life that has turned to 'our' life!!

You know what.. Life gets so very easy and so very interesting when you have someone to share it with..!!

Even when you are confronted with any trouble..then instead of you alone dealing with that problem, basically now there are two persons dealing with the same problem (considering you have someone with whom you can actually share everything!!)..see.. mathematically speaking..(1 problem/2 persons = 0.5 problem!!!) again your life gets easier..!

When mah friend asked me, "How can people live all alone without that "special person" in their life?????".. I was reminded of the time of mah singlehood..and i totally agree that it was the best time..I loved that..and yes..I was happy!!..but then with her in mah lyf ..mah tym became better than that best..and yeah,.. I became happier..!! Its not as if all the problems vanished..(infact there are loads and loads of new problems that arise everyday!! hehe!!) but then ..see I just told you the mathematical fundamental of how the problem is being shared..!!!:):)

So, the moral of the story is ..Singlehood rules..but a shared life..(that is what I call a commitment!!)..makes life a bit more interesting + easy + enjoyable..!! Now just take your pick!!

Anyway, movie for the day is .."INTO THE WILD".. Dun doesnt have anything related to commitment a matter of fact its an adventure movie..!! one of the finest films ever been made.. well it is a bit slow in pace..but that wont make much of a difference..the movie will manage you to sit infront of your viewing screen..!! and the best will make you realise the importance of what I call ..a shared life..!!

After I finished the movie.."Up in the air".. once again I realised that how backward our Indian Cinema is when it comes to create a good moralistic yet enjoyable drama conglomerated with fantastic feel and enjoyability. I don't intend to criticize our Indian cinema by any means.. not at all.. as a matter of fact, I acknowledge Indian cinema for progressing miraculously in last 60 years.. From Pakeezah to Veer-Zarra..from Upkar to Rang De Basanti..and from Sholay to Dil Chahta Hai...obviously I am proud that we have progressed .. but somewhere i believe that we have not progressed enough..and the movies like Housefull, Paathshaala, etc etc etc.. and yes Prince of can I forget that one (:-x).. all these releases corroborate the fact that we haven't progressed yet.

Though the movies like RDB, DCH, Lage Raho....even Jab We Met boast of our genuineness and innovation then the likes of, well I would rather not name them.. they are just too many..infact all of them minus a few!!.., substantiate the callowness and the maladroitness of our filmmakers.

Just look at was a total bizarre. My sixth standard cousin has got a better imagination and stories than the makers of Prince have who were bragging of extreme stunts and special effect/action sequences their movie possess before the release..Well, I haven't heard anything from them off late.. dun know wat happened to them and that is not my concern is.. What I feel sorry about is that our movies lack stories..lemme rephrase it.. Our movies lack soul .. More than entertainment medium, moviemaking has become a moneymaking business with our filmmakers cashing on the successes of the likes of Om Shanti Om or take any friday flick we have over here..!

Anyway, I am starting this blog for those Indians who are fascinated by the world of movies but Indian Cinema leaves them starving for everything!!

To start with.. just get your copy of.. Up in the air.. get it from ur frnz.. download it.. or rent it.. whateva.. but do not miss this one.. just watch it to make yourself realise the difference..the huge difference!!
