Seven Random things about me......

Well, it was Vivek who tagged here it goes......


A blog meme is a memesomething that requires active participation by the blogger and (rarely) traces back to an originating source. It is a question that a blogger answers to share some personal perspective or experience on random topics.

the rules

  • Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
  • Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  • Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they have been tagged.

7 random things……about me..............hmmm......

1). When some1 asks me whether u have a girlfriend, I would say, “I do not have 1, but I know some1 who would be mad at me for saying this. ;) ” The fact is that I don’t have 1 yet. K

2). I wanted to be a HERO throughout my childhood… Sometimes an astronaut, sometimes an entrepreneur, sometimes a software engineer…. I always used to fantasize myself in those cinema screens. I wanted to be a hero i.e. the one which comes onscreen, but hated the real offscreen ‘life’ behind it.

3). I want to write a novel & direct a movie too……but these are things that I would be serious about after I get well settled somewhere around my 30s.

4). I carry an egoistic & a selfish image, but love my family ‘n’ friends a lot….

5). I have good reason to be both an atheist and a believer. But I am none yet.

6). I sleep for about 56 hours per week.

7). I created my first email A/c when I was in 5th std. & my first investments in my 11th std. i.e. a year back, & I feel, in both the cases that I was very late.

Now, my turn to tag people.........

Vivek: Refer Rule no. 1

Jayadev: Nice one.

Mohit: He is cool....

Aditi (a.k.a @aDeSe): her bio says it all.....

I wrote this on 19th April, 2009, my birthday........well ...........I know m really late.......but, "better late than never."

Saturday ,18th April 2009:

I landed back home @ 09:20 p.m. after a tiring but a fruitful day both - @ office & in college- s.p. paper was good- it sort of feels very nice when you are one of the only three people who took supplements – leave half an hour early w/ a grin – expecting 75/80 & then forget it as if it was of no importance.

I sat hunting for a D.V.D -went to a neighbour- I so very wanted to see FIRAAQ & STRAIGHT- couldn’t get either- after a couple of calls here ‘n’ there, the only option left was DOORDARSHAN a.k.a. DD.(You might find it hard to believe, but that’s the only channel that’s aired @ our home.) & w/ a data card – u dare think of watching 1 online @ its snail speed. K
So there was DD. I wished for a good movie- I have been quite optimistic after the yatra & so I was sort of sure something good will be aired. (Don’t ask whats the relation between the two.)

9:30 sharp, the movie started- name was ‘SIRF’- this was the first time I heard of this movie- the movie started w/ a guy who resembled a grown-up version of ishaant a.k.a. dharsheel safary from TZP. It turned out to be quite an interesting movie. The plot contained 4 couples each one striving for ‘just’ – rather ‘SIRF’ 1 thing. 1 couple had everything – were rich – loved each other – but lacked the ‘FUN’ part- other couple had the ‘FUN’ part – but the wife was from Jalandhar & couldn’t adjust w/ the partying culture of Mumbai – other wanted to marry but had no money- the last one has money (reasonably well) but the wife’s earning were more than the hubby’s w/ their cute daughter having a hole in heart & husband refusing to invests time on – eager for a promotion- wanting to save his ‘MALE EGO’ as his wife earned more- add to it wife’s well settled job which she couldn’t leave to cope up w/ financial expenditure of Mumbai- these things grabbed the deserving time of their cute little daughter.

The movie ended w/ a usual happy-ending stuff [ the only sad thing being the cute daughter’s death. :’( ] . Time : 12:15. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! :D Nice way to begin your 17th – I learnt:

1). Always strive for success- earn – but never neglect your Give them the time they deserve. – They need you- & more importantly – YOU NEED THEM TOO. J

2). After attaining success (read don’t just strive for success- attain it too.) – never ever forget the JOY of SMALL things. – be it a golgappa or a gola or what not. – SMALL things matter- save yourself from being a note-chaapne-ki-machine.

3). LIVE- Life is small- SO LIVE – every breath – every moment. As it is said, “In this world, sickness & pain are inevitable, suffering is optional.” Inspite of problems, pain & your constant tireless striving to overcome it- its just a part ‘n’ parcel of life – accept it overcome it- But don’t stop LIVING. (ALSO NEVER GET SATISFIED- BE HAPPY – LIVE – BUT NOT SATISFIED BECAUSE IF YOUR SATISFIED HOW WILL YOU GROW???)

Well, that’s all, completed another year of foolishness- success failure- unproposed crushes – unrealized dreams- unfulfilled desires & many more… Got 88% in my 10th. YATRA happened. My 1st JOB- 1st SALARY- 1st COLLEGE- got amazing friends – 1st BLOG- 1st TWEET- Indeed a gr8 year.

I am 17 now – tingering w/ IDEAS- looking forward to my 12th – CPT- attending camps – M GROWING - Next year is going to be full of ideas, tweets, books, movies & WORK- loads of WORK. After the yatra, I am in full spirit & am waiting for something enterprising. It may take time – but sooner or later, - 1 day I will be an entrepreneur for sure. :D

In less than 200 words tell us what you would do to create a better India'

It is for a competition that I wrote this.............lot of editing done before submitting........

'Tum Chalo To Hindustaan Chale...' says Gulzaar saheb....TRUE.........Not throwing around litter, launching a complaint whenever required, using public transport, paying taxes on time, casting your vote to a sound candidate, following not only traffic but other rules too, committing not to bribe, taking part in the system & doing all your duties are the traits of an ideal citizen.   THAT WOULD BE THE FIRST BENCHMARK.     Population, poverty, corruption, pollution, illiteracy & other problems form a vicious cycle that acts as a hurdle for our development. A spider has to take a big jump - a BIG LEAP - to get rid of the web. EDUCATION will play a lion's share of credit for the jump - for the *BIG LEAP* we so very badly need to get out of this vicious cycle. I am not an ardent fan of our current education system. It can be - should be- must be- rather WILL BE a lot more better. Education should teach one to think-not just to follow. The only line in my syllabus that talks of innovativeness says, "one should be innovative". WHY? HOW? ...who cares???....we are the best shruggers it seems. You hardly ind education teaching life-skills, leadership-kills- Just find additional compulsory graded subject named value - education wherein few ladies come & dictate question & answers won't imbibe VALUES. Education should not only teach knowledge but WISDOM too. Good books 'n' novels like 'Kane & Able', 'Tuesdays with Morrie', 'ATLAS SHRUGGED', 'ALCHEMIST', et al can be included in the syllabus of english text books or even good literature containing short stories - they have good grammer good figures of speech....anything 'n' everything. I remember about a school where small groups are formed & each student is elected as a representative. students check their papers themselves. It teaches them a lot of life skills.  they themselves correct it - check it - improve & come back.    Coming to the point, after getting settled, I see myself working on education with my business going on smoothly along side. :)
