  2. The Casanova

    Oct 26, 2006

    I don't know why i wrote these lines...............maybe this is my idea of Love.
    Walking down the flower valley,
    He entered the dense forest.

    The forest glow with the light of his face and wind whispered a tone welcoming him.- the Casanova.

    Time froze by letting the sun not to set and the moon not to rise.

    As he kept walking the dense forest he heard a whisper:
    "Oh! Casanova you’ve finally arrived. Us the witches through life have been waiting for thee.Thou hold us to thy and make us humans.
    And let the moment last forever by never leaving us."

    The Casanova wasn’t fearful because he knew there is Love involved.

    He held the witch in his arms and said: “Let me be free.”

    And he was free..........

  3. A vision

    Oct 23, 2006

    A loud cry and everyone in the bus was staring him grovel on the floor.
    His mother held his stomach which was in intense pain. In his early twenties he caught up with some cancer which was curable but treatment was a costly affair for the poor. Now I guess how that widow would have managed her life with her only son who was an added burden on her. Mostly prayers are for the well-being of someone but I guess that the old lady would be asking god for peaceful death of her only son because life was more dreadful than death. All I could do at that time was to pray for the poor soul.

    As the time moved on, this situation denied to leave my subconscious mind & I kept asking myself: “why don’t we have free medical facilities for all?” This question bears no answer but this has left me with another question: Why don’t I do something?
    Right now it’s more than a half decade to this incidence but still it appears as if it happened yesterday.

    Now I have a dream to open hospitals offering free care for the poor people & the dream is still a dream and all I’ve in this dream is a "WHAT", it still lacks "WHEN".

  5. Maybe

    Oct 12, 2006

    How do you feel when the very first sip of tea tastes sour?
    This is what happened with me. Before entering the engineering field I consulted all the profession maps & engineering appealed me best coz I thought I have a mind of an engineer & an eye for details?-{Ordered tea}. Getting through the cut-throat competition I managed to procure myself a seat in Electrical engineering-{got the order [tea]}. At the very initial days of my engineering I got disheartened with the rote learning methodology followed at my institute & thought this is not what I’m supposed to do. I was very repentant during my first semester-{Oops! The tea tasted sour. But there’s no other option than to drink it coz I’ve already paid the price (:}.

    During my second semester I got introduced to the usefulness of computers & internet and it was love at first sight.
    Being an electrical engineer I’m supposed to rote about power generation & transmission but my mind is always busy thinking about computers & related world-{I had no option but to drink the tea so I thought about adding sugar into it}. Now the current situation is that I’m happy getting minimum possible grades required to sit in for a placement. I believe that life is all about following your passion coz its fun doing things you love. So I’m busy editing WebPages, learning about servers & can’t put aside my novels, magazines, newspaper & writing. They say: “you came empty handed & shall leave so.” But I think I’ll carry a novel and a pen with me even to the hell {Heaven wont accept me?. One question please: do they have internet facility over there? ?}. So now the tea is manageable coz I’ve flavored it my way.

    When I leave my college I shall not have fat degrees in my folder but one thing I’m sure about is that by then I would have lived & enjoyed life worth living and that too my way. And moreover this is the only period of life when we are so full of energy & thrill to experiment new things.
    Amongst load of classes {8:30 am- 5:30 pm}, assignments, projects & exams, It’s very difficult to find few moments of leisure. Last week we had a semester break & during this I experienced a very beautiful thing. Here I would like to share it with you. One day I thought about visiting the hilltop behind my hostel-to sit there and watch the sunset. And in those moments of complete me I realized many things. And the biggest realization was about how different I’ve grown as compared to my childhood. My entire childhood has been spent admiring the beauty of nature & the contemporary me don’t even know how to pluck the leaf which when pressed on your skin bears a very beautiful design. Here is my experience of my date with nature.

    Pressed the beautiful leaf on my hand but there was no design,
    Maybe those leaves don’t bear design anymore.

    Sat to watch the sun setting but saw the moon rising,

    Maybe the sun has changed its direction.

    Was longing to hear the birds chirping but there was extreme silence,
    Maybe the birds don’t sing anymore.

    Was longing to jump into the stream and feel the cold water caressing my body but there was no stream existing around,
    Maybe those streams don’t flow anymore.

    Dejected I returned to my room and sat staring the empty walls & the spider was busy weaving his web. Maybe there are birds singing somewhere, the springs still flow & leafs still bear beautiful designs.

    Then I opened my window and glanced towards the sky,
    And the moon was busy defining the beautiful starry night. Maybe this all is just an illusion of mind, or I’ve forgotten the obvious.

  6. Deep Contemplation

    Oct 9, 2006

    It was after a long time that I interacted with myself. Rather it was a deep contemplation. Thanks to Velu for such a wonderful tag.
    8 Facts About me, that could probably help unearth a few facets of the person that I am.
    1>My credo of life:
    Simplicity & straightforwardness. The real I and what I speak/write are synonymous.
    2>I love:
    Good food, Soft music, good jokes, sleeping {which is rare now a days}, net surfing {I’m crazy about websites & their designs}.
    3>I hate:
    Liars, grouchy people, politicians & people who don’t have consideration factor.
    4>Things which attract me to anyone:
    Simplicity, commonsense & sense of humor.
    5>How I deal relationships:
    A person is not judged by kind of company he/she keeps, but by the kind of company he/she avoids. So I can’t please everyone.
    To the persons close to me I’m sincere to max but if things really become out of control. I opt to move out coz there’s no use in dragging a relation. Dragging only makes any relation bitter.
    But let me tell you that here I’m talking about friendship. I’ve never been into love kind of relation. :)
    6>One secret about me:
    I keep fantasizing about my miss right. And I don’t expect her to the princess from those fairy tales. All I need is a very simple person who loves me unconditionally. But it’s so strange to know that people just pretend to be modern by putting masks & hence hiding their real self which makes it very difficult for me to find my miss right. :)
    7>Best thing I know about myself:
    I know my mind so I seldom face problems, Coz they never seem so.
    I’m rarely stressed coz you get stressed when you don’t satisfy your mind by giving the right explanation about the miss-happening or the thing causing stress.
    I never compare myself to anyone coz I want to be me not anyone else.
    8>Dream for life:
    I always keep my parents in mind coz I want to live for them & provide them
    each and every happiness they desire.
    Regarding my personal life: I’ll always adhere to simplicity. Just want to lead a very normal life full of values, emotions & integrity.
    It's my first experiance with TAGs so I've answered all the TAGs from Velu's blog. :)
    1.Are you happy / satisfied with your blog, with its content and look?
    A: Yes!!! More than anything else. The only problem is that the story counter is only showing one where as I’ve labeled two stories. :)
    2.Does your family know about your blog?
    A: No, actually most of the time I’m in the hostel so never got a chance to share such thing with my parents.
    3.Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?
    A: Never, My blogging life and normal life are synonymous.
    4.Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?
    A: Yes, I got to know so many great personalities over here.
    5.Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?
    A: I’m regular on the blogs of friends who comment on my blog, but I do keep visiting new blogs also.
    6.What does visitors counter mean to you? Do you care about putting it in your blog?
    A: Creating a master piece in your backyard has no value. You’ve to bring it out into the world. So I think counter helps a person to keep track of people visiting his/her blog. But still I’ve not put counter on my blog coz I feel satisfied with comments itself.
    7.Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?
    A: While reading any post I always try to imagine the great person behind its creation. The pic in my profile is mine.
    8.Admit. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?
    A: Manifold!!!! And the blogger community is the largest online community in contemporary world.
    As far as I’m concerned, blogging friends are as good as live friends so blogging is a part of life for me.
    9.Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?
    A: No, rather I think with the freedom to project their views, bloggers play a major role in the society. Say, the Indian govt. was planning to ban blogging sites in India coz of some Ill reasons. This defines the power of blogging.
    10. Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it’s a normal thing?
    A: Positive criticism is always welcome.
    11. Do you fear some political blogs and avoid them?
    A: I’m not that much interested in politics but I don’t avoid any political blog either.
    12. Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?
    A: No, every thing has got certain rules & boundaries those who tend to cross the limits are definitely liable for punishment. But still I’ve not come across any such situation.
    13. Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?
    A: It depends upon Google, if they’ll not delete my account it’ll be always there, though there’ll only be accidental visitors. But one thing I’m sure is that I’ll carry memoirs of good friends I’m making/ shall make over here. And hope that I’m also able to carve out such space in someone’s [Any one who’s reading my blog] heart.
    14. What do you like to hear? What’s the song you might like to put a link to in your blog?
    A: I’m fond of music. Generally I hear old Hindi songs but anything which appeals my ears is good.
    I love the song: Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya, from the movie Hum Dono. It’s very inspiring song & if you wish you may download it from Here.

    I would love to TAG, Preetha {Coz she's not yet introduced to this concept} & you,who had patience to read till this point. :)

  8. Only for you

    Oct 2, 2006

    I’ve drunk to your health in taverns,
    I’ve drunk to your health in my home,
    I’ve drunk to your health so damn many times,
    That I’ve almost ruined my own!
    -unknown author
    This one is only for you and no one shall have it. This was the response of my friend when I denied a peg of vodka on my birthday.
    C’mon mate! Don’t be paranoid. Just have it in one gulp and you’ll feel earth revolving west to east. It’ll remove all your worries & frustration.Just take a dip into the bliss infinite.
    Upon my assertion the quantity of peg was reduced to one sip, and it really worked. I felt if earth is revolving, though I don’t remember it revolved west to east or east to west. It also reduced my pain {that caused by b’day bumps}. Above all I felt bliss also coz next day was spent sleeping which is bliss itself :).
    Just one sip of alcohol had such an effect on me. Since that day I m wondering: why are people so attached to alcohol?
    Is it the taste? No! It doesn’t even smell good, taste is the last thing.
    It removes worries & frustration: No! All it does is reduction in the activity of mind for few minutes. so how can this remove worries & frustration?
    Is it a matter of style & status? No! This option is also ruled out coz a person looks better with a glass of juice than with a glass of this foul smelling liquid.
    So what’s the thing which makes people have it? Why don’t people have juice while in frustration?
