Ordinary World

April 21, 2008

Seems like microsoft is trying to be a grab a piece of the bloggers+flickr’s+file sharing by offering Skydrive…lets see how it turns out to play amongst other services already available.
I am glad Bangalore’s Royal Challengers atleast won the 2nd match of the IPL tournament, Mumbai Indians played well too , Mallaya’s boys were just struggling for a win though it did happen they could’ve put up a better show coz the forthcoming matches seem to be even pose lot of challenges . Hope they are able to cope up with whats gonna come their way.
I am reading a book called Discover your destiny by Robin Sharma, which seems sorta nice…donno will reading so many books within which i try n discover whats really there for me kinds, help me in any manner or is it just that i feel that momentary blast which is guiding me somewhere unknown with some feeling which is already instilled in me, all of it just boils down to one thing if its gonna change my life…thats if i want it to…whether significant or not… & after a lot of thinking i am back to square one. Lot of thinking but hardly any action in that direction. I wish to see my myself as a different, being great from within…the one whom i respect myself . I am sure many of us think who would that happen and mainly when will that turning point come in out lives…maybe right now if we choose to make it happen this very moment. Does it really need lot of preparation where we are satisfied just by what n who we are right now ? I guess not , i do not wish to be governed by anything in cosmos … coz i really feel that we being a part of it describe the way we want to be by our very own thoughusually ts which mirrors back to us in actions.
I don’t watch cricket matches but seem to be watching IPL matches these days…there are two new ads whcih i just saw today…hutch and godrej…both of them have an amazing jingle , makes me wanna sing n’ dance to its tune.


notes to myself…

March 20, 2008
There are some books which become a part of your life n u treasure its feelNotes to myselfing like its another you. One such book in my life has been notes to myself by huge prather. Its a pretty small book, and on the cover u’d see the title with the tag my struggle to become a person, the first time i had a glance at that book…i knew i had to read the author’s experience . This book was introduced to me by my brother, and from the time i’ve read it, i’ve gifted it to few of my fren’s… i still read it regularly. All of us go through some struggle or the other in our life…we’d obviously wanna handle everything in an ideal manner but sometimes we drown into it not being able to make a proper decision ourselves,thats when our nature takes us the way we’ve been. Its the struggle in our life which makes us so strong to experience the extra xing in life. We usually learn a lot from the way we’ve been, learning is a vicious circle, its present even when we are not aware of it. We do so many thing which we are’nt aware of, being aware of it would empower ourselves more to be a better self and to utilize our learning in a perfect sense. I feel learning is like the capturing the essence of experience, whether good or bad it has something for all of us. This books tries to capture the essence of author’s experiences and its presented in such a manner that its related to our’s…a bit of philosophical and spiritual touch to it…u tend to see urself in the reflection . Reading this book has motivated me to maintaining notes for myself… it really proved to be a major source of upgrade, its like developing the major service pack u always seeked and the best thing being u become the author of your destiny. It really does’nt matter if you shall read this book or not, but it would surely make a difference in your life if you tried to look inside yourself. The finer things in life is’nt the glitter, brightness and illusion outside but rather the glow within yourself. Hope u shine beyond your expectations… 🙂

Discussion with myself

March 3, 2008

There are times when i’m usually lost in myself, thats when sometimes my inner self and the outer(or rather the real) being step upon some matters which keep lingering in my little head. Matters which have happened in the past or about to happen in future or anything which has occupied the space in my RAM. The discussion with my inner self which is two fold in itself, one in which i feel i am getting feedback from my inner about the way i’ve been , which is sorta good coz i can avoid some mistakes which i’ve been making in the past n’ improve & the other in which i literally argue(one on one) with my inner self upon matters on which i should be staying away from but eventually they end up occupying the entire space in my mind not allowing any other thought to spawn that time. Its not that i should be trying to avoid those issues, but those issues don’t usually have a solution and something which i usually need to accept without much resistance coz with resistance also i’m gonna end up wasting my time on it with the same or worser results. This argument just seems to take me on the side i don’t belong. Its true that for the mind to stay calm, your mind cannot afford to have even a single negative thought wandering and for which constant motivation is needed. There is a very good quote which says:

‘Motivation is like bathing. That’s why its recommend every day’. 

So every time i have a discussion with myself i try not to get into any argument but it just does’nt seem to get off.


waiting materialistically

February 17, 2008

There is always a time when you desperately wait for something to change in your life to unlock the illusive paradise behind the corner of your mind, finding your way back to serenity. I waited for one such instance without realizing that even such an imitation would only displace my hopes for finding eternity,not in literal sense eternity, i mean just a feeling which is blissful in all respects. Me waiting desperately for something to change,leads me to be a materialistic being wherein i should’nt have led myself .Was i so careless that i can care for materialistic things and not for my own soul & originality .  There is hardly anyone whom i have’nt seen caught in this vicious cycle. Why do we end up just like how everyone else has ever been, our thoughts always map to someone else’s and so does our illusion of being in this world, that i feel there is hardly anything left within us which we can call ours . Why do we all carry the same illusion as our purpose of being here in this world n eventually believe it. Everything that we ever do is because thats the way everything has ever been. Our goals and thoughts remain so materialistic that we end up just like any other piece waiting to complete the puzzle within ourselves. Being materialistic is’nt bad, its just that in today’s world, thats where our thoughts would always end up. The search for your inner self would never materialize unless you’re never trying to find it. The wait will never be over unless you’re trying to reach there.


Valentine’s Day – Sleep with Windows & wake up with Linux

February 15, 2008

This is one of the most funniest incident that happened to me recently. I am presently doing my internship in GE, so by the time i get back home i am very tired ,so i just have dinner and hit the sack trying to read a few blogs n’ check mails with me lying down with my lappy. Usually i am so sleepy that i dose of without turning off my lappy, n it ends up in the same state till morning. On that day, the same thing happened and i eventually dosed off without turning it off, it was in win XP when i slept and i happened to get up at around 3 a.m, and i look at the screen and i see my Ubuntu login screen… oh boy was i surprised to such an extent….maybe windows performed an update,restarted and linux being my default bootup OS, took over the control. Just had a feeling as if Windows & Linux had a special valentine… 🙂

Life in a Frame

February 15, 2008

I believe we are want to perform a task, we just pick a frame based on our experience or maybe someone else’s, and transform or rather map our actions based on it, we just do it the way it has been done, with no one ever trying to question oneself about why it has been done this way, I’ve probably seen only a few who even want to think about this or rather think about its sole existence in the first place . We are so engrossed in what has been happening that we believe its probably the needful action, thinking otherwise would lead to being called madness on ones part and I love that madness and i hope one day that madness becomes the mantra in everyone’s life
