It has been just eight days into the year and I have finished reading one book. Already! Ahhh… feels like a good start. With the surprisingly pathetic record of last year, 2010 already seems a step ahead in every way. So about the book I read – ‘2 States’ written by Chetan Bhagat. It’s a story … More Book Review | 2 States by Chetan Bhagat
I know I am more than three years late on the issue, but hey, I discovered blogging only recently and even with that, you need something called inspiration (or in this case, something that gets on your nerves so badly that you would want to vent!) During dinner time in our house, we generally watch the … More Hypocrisy and Indian Television
They say, ‘What goes around comes around,’ and as of this moment, for me there is no other statement that emanates more truth than this one. At the risk of sounding like a little girl (I was a little girl when it all began,) all I want to say is that I can’t believe it’s true … More A Perfect Circle
I must’ve said that more times at home than I have said in class. Weird, I know! It’s ironic that as a teacher I haven’t said “Quiet Please” enough in class. But why would there be a need to say that at home?? Let me explain! Our family is loud and by loud I mean larger-than-life … More Quiet Please!!!
Results were finally announced yesterday about half an hour before noon and they were almost as I had expected. I did not clear either of the groups. I have been exempted from writing one paper since I scored above sixty in that one but will have to write the rest of the seven papers. That hurt! … More Firsts…
If someone had told me a week ago that I’d be standing on top of the highest peak of the Sahyadri, I would’ve laughed at them; hard. Me?? And trek?? It was something that was difficult for me to imagine, especially because I am not athletic at all and even more so when my geography … More Kalsubai – Heaven on Earth!
Of late, I’ve been devoting more time to discovering what’s the best schedule for me to follow when I study and I’ve concluded that since I can’t get up early in the morning it’s best for me to start late during the day and study deep into the night, sometimes until day-break. Believe me, the kind … More It’s Raining…
After a mind-numbingly sarcastic and distressing narrative, I’m happy to be writing about something AWESOME! And yes, such strong positive emotions can be evoked only by my school friends, a few members of my family, and some other close friends that I have. The past few days have been an emotional roller-coaster and my mind has … More Respite, Relief and Realization!!!!
Some people remain three-year-olds even in their twenties and I saw a live demonstration of that last night much to my annoyance. I would have rather been at home and enjoyed the ‘Prime Time Soaps’ (compared to last night’s freakishly irritating scene, the soaps are a delight!) But it happened to be one of my closest … More Growing Up… It’s not for everyone!
Well, its 2.50 am, I’m still up, NOT studying and yet I don’t feel like doing anything else but mindlessly playing with the keyboard and then hoping that something good will turn out. Some of my best ideas and thoughts have surprisingly been born at this hour or when I’m sleeping… Yes! I have come … More I better have a good reason for this!
Every time I went through an emotion, a very strong one, whether it was happiness or extreme sorrow I felt the need to pen it down. And this led to a lot of diaries with only the first few pages filled as I could never write about my feelings on a regular basis. Although these … More My first blog!
