I just need to keep moving ahead!

I just need to keep moving ahead!

One of the most frequently asked question in todays world is – where are you heading towards??? or in other words what are your plans for the future?  These questions seems to irritate everyone but unfortunately they are genuine questions… come- on we need to figure out what we are going to do next.

In my case, fortunately I am on your side… I haven’t figured it out too. For the entire world I am a computer freak but I reality I don’t know what to do next. However I am getting a lot of help from friends and I am really working hard to figure it out but in the mean time I have decided to do one thing- I am not going to let myself sit quiet and settle on one place. I just need to keep working on something or the other. I need to work hard and really quick.

However sometimes people are so busy working for their future that they forget their present. and end up losing everything. We are here to live not to race with someone else!

Enough of tension let me share some pictures!  Quick peek into my life!

         These are some of my new friends (not facebook friends) from around the globe….

Well, making friends is easy for me now, but staying in touch with them is very difficult. In the last 2-3 months I have made a number of friends but I don’t know how many of them remember me well……….  Sad, but true! By the way I remember each and every one them, from the moment I first met them to the moment they left. computer engineer!!Winking smile  Razor sharp memory!

“A smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever…..”

Alone in a populated city!

Alone in a populated city!

I have been living in the city of Indore, Madhya Pradesh for the last four years. Made a lot of friends, traveled a lot of places and had  lots of life changing experiences. I love this city because it’s not too big nor too small by the way I hate crowded places. The only problem I faced in this city is loneliness, especially during festivals… Diwali vacation is on and my hostel is almost vacant……  All my childhood friends are in different cities and since I am  a kind of introvert person,it’s difficult for me to make friends. I do have a lot of acquaintances but calling them good friends will be wrong.

Looking back, I think moving out of my home town was one of the best decisions I have made. Life has taught me everything.. How to conduct myself in a new town, whom to trust, how to handle tough financial situations and most importantly, how to live alone… all by myself,without depending on others. And I think I have faired well in all of the above. The only grudge I have is being alone in my hostel. Sometimes it has it’s own benefits and some times it causes problems.

Facebook and Gmail does help but friendship isn’t about chatting for long hours it about having a feeling that there is someone who know you, more than yourself. After watching Harry Potter movies the only thing I thought about was friendship. My school principal used to say that “FRIENDS DON’T COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER, THEY COMPLETE EACH OTHER”.

when I was a kid I used to watch a cartoon series called “RECESS”  it’s was about six friends in middle school. It was a delight watching them. Oh wow! just had an idea to watch it again on youtube!  Great writing a blog has benefits too… see I can now forget about my problems and enjoy watching RECESS.

One of my all time favorite cartoon series

 

Will write about it soon!

Happy Diwali….

Decisions!

Decisions!

 

“Sometimes your entire life boils down to one insane move”  these are the lines from one of my favorite movies (Avatar). And I guess it’s time for me to make my move. I have been struggling with a lot a decisions I made throughout my life. Which subjects I should take up for higher studies?which college I should choose? what kind of place I should live in? which computer language I should learn? etc etc ….

I have fighting with confusions all my life. And confusions are increasing day by day.. latest one- “I should use Google+ or facebook?”

I think I made my life more and more complex than it was in my school years.  Today I have decided to sort things up. trying to make up a single chart to select out the most important things to do and leave the un important/ junk out. The task is huge and it would take a lot of time but it’s worth doing. Simply, I can’t live in two parallel universes, gotta choose one!

This time is very important in my career, either I will make it or break it.

Whenever I try to recollect my memories, I always find myself in the middle of two paths going in different directions. I have learned from the movie Harry potter that ,it’s the decision we make, decides our destiny. Let’s see where my decision takes me.

 

By the way, In Alchemist there is a saying that “ butterflies are a good omen” and my god, I have been seeing a lot of butterflies these days!

Insanely normal

Insanely normal

In the world,

  • where people are fighting for their rights,
  • countries are struggling to keep their economy running,
  • Where companies are busy selling products which people don’t even need,
  • where banks are the headquarters of scam and corruption,
  • political parties are busy endorsing their agenda which is no where related to general welfare,
  • where people have more virtual friends compared to real ones,
  • where the price of laptops, cell phones are declining while food prices are on a record high,
  • where environment protection is just a chapter in text book, not a real movement,
  • where people are restricted to travel in their own planet,
  • where currency, not character decides your future…………

There are still a few HUMANS left on this god forsaken planet…………

  • They always look for the brighter side of the picture that too in complete darkness,
  • Comfort is never a priority for them,
  • Every one opts for a flight, they prefer walking,
  • Every one moves towards concrete jungle, they are busy traversing the real forests,
  • for them, internet is not a necessity, just a medium to stay connected,
  • Material comfort is never on their list,
  • for them, mental balance is more important than bank balance,

You might have heard about them in stories, history books or in newspapers but I was lucky to have met one!

People call them INSANE, I call them INSANELY NORMAL!
