Dasvidaniya 2016… Konnichiwa 2017

Another year ended. Leaving behind memories, good, bad, some to remember forever, and some to forget. New year coming with lots more Hopes, Wishes, promises, Good times, Great Times, Laughter, cheer . . .

By the way Dasvidaniya means Goodbye in Russian & Konnichiwa means Welcome in Japanese!!!

So here’s a small note for you on the eve of New Year 2017 –

  • Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Grab life by the mane.
  • Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions.
  • Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God.
  • Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution.
  • Stop repeating the past and start creating the future.
  • Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.
  • Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey.
  • Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.
  • Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right, with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating.
  • Worry less about what people, think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who you’re not.
  • Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.
  • And a last thought . . smile 🙂

Tasteless Koffee with Karan!

Tasteless Koffee with Karan!

Never a big of Karan Johar or his movies or his stupid chat shows! Yesterday while flipping the channels happened to watch the latest seasons, first episode with Salman Khan! Now when Salman is there its obvious there will be questions about his deeds (Black Buck, Drink and drive, Shahrukh fights etc) and obviously Katrina Kaif!

So I watched the whole episode which was nothing more than a C grade bollywood film with Best Actors!!! Questions were Stupid, Jokes were lame, Salman was acting (Which is ironical cos he cant act in Movies!)

Most crushing moment of my life

(A friend forwarded it to me. Dont know the source. if anyone knows the source, please let me know, will link to that.)

One fine afternoon, 2003, Bihar, India

I was in the 6th class.I was sitting behind my Crush (I never told her anything about it). It was maths class. Jhimmy ma’am was writing something on the blackboard. Everyone in class was copying it.
She was wearing a Green Sari.
  “Everyone done with copying? Shall I rub the board?”
  “Yessss maaaam”
  “Sure?”
  “Yessss maaaam”
Although I hadn’t finished writing till then I didn’t have the guts to say it. I wasn’t very sharp in studies. There were literally millions of things going inside my mind simultaneously making me slow like hell and I was her favourite student to torture.

Staring into my eyes she said, “If anyone hasn’t copied yet, stand up

I froze in my seat. I was praying that she doesn’t check my notebook. But God had something else for me that day.
“Hey you, the boy on the last bench” – she never bothered to know my name – “Show me your notebook.”
I didn’t utter a word. I was almost crying. My eyes were pleading her to stop.
The guy sitting next to me handed her my notebook. And she threw it out of the window.
And seeking the attention of the little children around she announced

Here see the worst boy of our class, completely stupid. I am tired of him.”

She came and slapped me, ” This one for lying to me.” And I couldn’t see any further because of the tears in my eyes… everything was blurry….

Everyone was staring at me. Although I was a kid I could feel the shame on my face. Then there came the most crushing moment of my life.

She (my crush, who was a topper of the class) spoke for the first time about me to her friend,

   “We won’t sit here from tomorrow ma’am, please change our seat

I couldn’t understand that. I felt like, I was slapped again, but only a million times harder.
I don’t remember what happened next. Everything changed that day.
I scored 90% in my 10th board, securing 5th position. She was 15th!
I scored 93% in 12th, She scored 62%
I got Into IIT, She went to some college in NCR
She Proposed me and I rejected her !
And then she asked me why.
I repliedBecause we still can’t sit together
