The post birthday phase

Whoever said growing a year older meant doomsday? In fact, progression with each stage means an opening of a whole new world altogether. It means reflecting on your past experiences with feelings of nostalgia and a wistful smile, gearing up for newer experiences that life has to offer. It even gets better just like a bottle of wine.

Every year sure does signify the ability to know yourself even better, come to terms with who you are and what you want out of life. It means more surety, more confidence and a certain amount of grace that adorns your persona like a piece of velvet clothing. That symbolizes a certain amount of soul searching that one tends to do and needs to stay in tune with your inner self. So here is the million dollar question: Who am I?

5 Years ago, my answer would have been that of an impish 24 year old who had hardly seen the world. However today I can proudly say, I am someone born to make the most out of life. I am someone born to bring about a difference in other p…

Conversation with God

A transcript I received has some useful reminders & insights

God: Hello. Did you call me?

Me : Called you? No.
Who is this?

God: This is GOD.
I heard your prayers.
So I thought I will chat.

Me: I do pray.
Just makes me feel good.
I am actually busy now.
I am in the midst of something.

God: What are you busy at?
Ants are busy too.

Me: Don't know, but I can't find free time.
Life has become like rush hour all the time.

God: Sure.
Activity gets you busy.
But productivity gets you results.
Activity consumes time.
Productivity frees it.

Me:I understand, but I still can't figure out.
By the way, I was not expecting YOU would call.

God: Well, I wanted to resolve your fight for time.
Give you some clarity.

Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?

God: Stop analyzing life. Just lives it.
Analysis is what makes it complicated.

Me: Why are we then constantly unhapp…

The Wonder called Gonzalo Higuain

Image
A slow and steady start is what eventually gives way to an explosion. It was a rather stale beginning for an otherwise an impressive team like Argentina against Nigeria of a 1-0 score. It seemed there was smoke yet no fire as they managed to just scrape through a meek win.

However their second game against South Korea proved the world that they were on the way to become the hot favourites in this tournament. Coach Maradona had more than a reason to be beaming with pride. History takes one back to the 1986 opening game in Mexico where they faced the same team with Huh (present coach of Korea) sent to stop Maradona. The latter faced an injury which seemed to have been imprinted in his memory, going to an extent of accusing his rivals of having played taekwondo. However this powerful win against the opponent team emphasised a sweet revenge against his old foe whom he finally seems to have settled scores with.

The star of the evening Gonzalo Higuain did do his team proud with a massive hat …

Back into the world of words

They say breaks are rejuvenating!! It sure does feel good to be back after a two month hiatus. The last couple of months have been pretty eventful. Travelled to Egypt and had quite an educational and adventurous trip. After which the IPL tournament got me hooked on being the cricket buff that I am. Being a staunch supporter of Mumbai Indians propelled me to go to every game of them and enjoy the stadium atmosphere. They played really well and it was disappointing to watch them lose in the finals.

After which the Mumbai heat took a toll on me making it impossible to even think, leave alone write about something. Now that the monsoons are here, the weather has finally bestowed its kindness upon us. It feels like a station out here and my School has started. So its back to work again. Also I had visited this Tiger reserve last weekend called Tadoba which is in Chandrapur district in Maharashtra. It was a wonderful experience spotting a tiger.

So have a lot of travel write ups to work on. L…
