Self connect and drive for action

It's been a while that I wanted to visit and update this blog. Perhaps what drove me to action today is the same thing that has kept me going during the time I was involved in other things away from this blog.

Interesting to note that my last post was before marriage. While the last year and half has enabled me to connect with what led me to start all this in the outside world, this blog definitely has a special place in what led me to start in the inner world.

What drives us to action is what we should cherish and act or not act accordingly. Writing down the thoughts is very important. For it helps to connect the dots for the self and perhaps for someone seeking to find a solution while reading this.

Kabhi kabhi jab hota hu khush
aate hai mann mein vichar anek
sochta hu tab mai aksar, ki,
kya woh kal tha jo aaj nahi
ya aaj hai jo kal tha nahi?

nishkarsh toh iss baat ka ho pata nahi
par khushi aur gham ke yeh silsilay kabhi thamte nahi.

Or do they?

Neutral cities

Bangalore is amazing! No wonder its such a favorite. Awesome time with a few good men!

Can't write a long one as this. But certainly wont mind this city getting into my list of non neutral cities in future.

The Preface

“Don’t resist the effect”, were the last words he could recollect. And that he maintains to date, has made all the difference. It wasn’t easy then and isn’t now.

Sometimes dealing with the effect has this strange quality of being difficult, especially when the cause was unintended for. You may ask how many causes do we have control over. Most times we are the subjects of random events in life. And, boy oh boy, was Tarun aware of it. 

But to think of it, acceptance is one word that is highly underrated. Everything else in life is overrated. At least that’s what he had experienced so far. If there was one thing he believed strongly all his life, it was this “Follow your heart. But never let it get outside your body.” He has been the epitome of practicality. He is a man of strong will. He has persevered many a times. But alas he is also a human. This is his story and whole of his life has been a flashback.

It wasn’t the first time he had heard something similar. But this was a reaffirmation he needed now. As he lay on the bed in the operation theatre, the doctor asked for a new pair of forceps and a knife.

...To be continued

Thoughts - Part 7

I think it is getting tough for me to keep aside the 'Thoughts' series! Have a few single topic posts in draft now but these thoughts just seem to leave no space for me. So while the long ones can wait even longer, here goes another in the current series. This one on the heart-mind duality:

I have no questions but I would still like to find some answers now.

Isnt it amazing how many wonders a resolve can bring for you?

Agar duniya mein timepass karne ke saadhan nahi hote toh hamara timepass kaise hota?

Agar hum sab samajhdar ho jayenge toh samajhne ke liye kya hi bachega.

It is not that complicated. Nothing is!

Follow your heart but just dont let it get outside your body.


Never let it build up.

Living a good life is hyped.

Mann ko jo achcha lage, karo!

Dear God,

Please may I never forget the fact that "This too shall soon pass".

Thoughts - Part 6

In gaining perseverance I lost my sincerity.

That what we call life is all futile, but we should still live to keep it alive!

Some talk more, some talk less. But talk everyone does.

Purpose, perspective, perseverance.

We all deserve to live and are bound to die.

Quite often the stuff you want to be doing is determined by the way you are doing it now.

If you have never had uncertain times you have never had certain success.

Maturity has this strange quality of making you more receptive.

You are what you become.

There is no greatness in being great.

A man at peace with himself is at peace with the whole world.

'I want to be'

So it was the last of the three long weekends here in June and off we went to the City of Lights - Paris. Hopefully the last trip in this rotation. For I seem to have accomplished the (only) objective I had set for this one ;) As usual there were lots of thoughts going through my mind during the trip but the dominant of them was that in the end everything is lost in the history. To be discovered again and lived and lost... and discovered and lived again and lost and so on... and on.

Anyways I have now got the following professions added to in my 'I want to be' list:

Train driver at Disneyland, Paris.

Security at the Eiffel tower.

Curator of the Louvre museum.

Is it possible? ;)

Thoughts - Part 5

Some travelling (more on this later) and some diversions for the mind delayed this one. But here goes yet another in the Thoughts series. This time in the form of some questions. They may not necessarily mean what they seem to imply. Hope you enjoy finding your own answers, if any:

Thinkers think, actors act, performers perform. What the heck are you doing out here?

At a given point of time we are all at different stages of evolution, are we?

Sometimes life is not all what we should live for, should we?

Systems are so much pain. Why do we even need them?

Why do we build houses?

Does thinking paralyse your actions?

How different is liking what you do to doing what you like?

Life mein kuch exciting na hone ka yeh matlab thode hai ki life exciting nahi ho sakti?

Thoughts - part 4

What better way to start than to continue the series of random thoughts that got me into serious blogging the first time. For those not familiar with this blog, these are short notes (sort of tweet-logs) of what goes through my mind while experiencing the different experiences this life has to offer. Mostly I leave it as crude material for the readers to have their own meaning (if they find any!). Honestly speaking, its too taxing to elaborate for someone like me who loves to think endlessly! Sometimes to the point of no return. I would anyday prefer listening over talking. But this is my outlet and after all why should I suffer alone with my thoughts? Well there are plans to write long ones as well. But lets see how this one goes for now..

Suffering is inevitable, so is happiness.

Lot of things get into our head. Brain for instance is one of them.

What if we scream out so loud that even the Gods cant hear!

The fact is we make sense out of what we understand.

To be honest I have never seen a sane man who isnt mad.

Why define exceptions when we cant understand normality?

Never underestimate the power of identifying the problem before solving it!

There is no dearth of interesting things in life, the challenge is to do the boring ones!

What is it with the Royals that we commoners so admire?

Knowledge is a dangerous thing, it unlocks potential.

Come to think of it, the world seems so confusing. But when we dont, it doesnt.

I wanted to update this blog for long. In fact wanted to be a regular here since even longer. Still do..!

I believe its the time and again realisation that one has, having tasted the pleasure of penning *posting* down stuff even for once during the lifetime. That time for me is now. To reinforce to myself the anchoring role this platform has been and will continue to have in my life. This ofcourse has been made possible by all the fellow bloggers who have encouraged, supported and motivated through the different phases this blog has gone through. Particularly Kayal, Phoenix, Vik, Vinayak, Ach_85, Geetika, Aditi and Kauzzy (in order of arrival) for being around the longest. You guys are the precious ones :) Hope to get your continuous support and some new patronage as well in the future!

So without further ado I hope this innings goes on to be the best for a long long time to come!

Just a thought...

On 'honour killings' in India:
We are the most 'youthful' country in the world with talks about the Generation Y getting into politics and all. But as a society are we mature enough to trust the young fellas 'making mistakes' and learning? May be even initiating some of this stuff proactively by the parents ;-)
Or in the name of 'culture' (no doubt there are valid reasons too!) we will continue deferring to commit mistakes until we learn it all !

May be the situation is not so grim and the cultural renaissance is already knocking on the doors.

Indian Educational Services (IES)

This seems to be a brilliant idea. It would be interesting if and how it takes shape. But certainly kudos to Kapil Sibal for re-initiating the proposal.

I strongly believe that the canvas for such reforms is not only huge but also within reach to be able to paint within a decade (or even less!). All it would take is the focus on solutions rather than cribbing. And that I believe is not a far fetched dream these days. Personally, having observed the 'system' from within (atleast to some extent) in about 4 countries now during the last 5 months, I certainly sense more energy in India. One just cannot miss noticing the aura around. For instance the graffiti I saw on the pavement walls on the streets between the Andheri - Churchgate area caught my attention the first thing I landed a few weeks back in India. These were interesting in two ways. Firstly the art was more pleasing than the spit-paints that existed before. Secondly there were some nice messages displayed in some innovative formats. I am sure it would go a long way just like the IES proposal in reaching its target audience - i.e us. The changes are happening!

As they say in marketing, its all about the right target and the right campaign. Rest will take care of itself.

Is it a Google thing?

The number of visits on my page from all parts of the world even when I am less active keeps increasing these days. If its not a Google thing I would love to have some feedback as well ;)

The Observer

When I read back some of my last few posts I realise how irregular I have been. Most of the times being constrained by the inability to manipulate the IT settings of the company laptop or transitioning from one place to other or at other times being super busy with work. But these past 4 months I have definitely learned as much if not more that I have learned in the past 22 years. Infact it has been a sort of unlearning which combined with the learnings of 22 years is making me see things in totally different perspectives. Couple that with the fact that I have been almost around the world in the last 80 days! I understand its a dream and now the only thing I want is to be able to put in practice what I have learned. To follow what I have observed. To get a chance to grow again!

Meanwhile one of the experiences here in Liverpool brought the following thought in my mind:
- Life is as easy/ difficult as you make it to be. The key being: To live YOU gotta make it anyways matey!

Merry Christmas :)

Settlement Issues


Its been a looonng time now. Busy, exciting, tough, learning.. you name it. The past 2.5 months have been eventful by all standards.

It all started with the entry into this naukari shuda zindagi! A much awaited event in life. And with it began the thoughts of personal settlement at some point of time in near future. Now due to the lack of any such prior experience in the art I may not be in a position to fully understand the meaning of it. But going by the examples of the experienced ones and the general feelings around on such topics it was an unsettling thought for me.

It was also during this time that I realised how horrible I was and how I still sometimes continue to be. And felt fortunate to have the good people in my life who let me believe that I still got some worth and gave me the strength to strive.

And at the same time came the call to work on the swine flu project at the US site of the company and the opportunity to contribute as an enabler to the same field I saw through a student's perspective an year ago. So tonight at the end of three weeks here in North Carolina I finally sit down to compose what I have been unable to put down in words for the past 2.5 months of my life. The issues still unsettled and the solutions still being sought.

Meanwhile, a thought to ponder upon:
- Isn't it funny how often we doubt the truth, just because the lies are so prevalent out there.

Little things that piss me off..

So I am back in Delhi and as mentioned in previous post could actually gather some strength to do the 'To Do' list !! Need some more strength though :) Was waiting for a special moment for this post :P and now that it has come its time to do vik's tag. My first tag! It really was FUN and I feel relieved after the whole excercise. Without further ado here goes the tag..

First the rules: "Write about things that piss you off, and the reason in brief. No rants, they only make you more miserable. This will let you let it out in a civilized manner. And please, not things like terrorism, politics, poverty or moral policing. Write about small, mainly personal things, things that you directly and often come across during the day."

1) Ridiculing others: Ok. So you have had a lot of experiences. I do credit you for accepting that you are not perfect. But ridiculing others when unasked for is the worst thing according to me to boost your ego. And if you say this is a friendly banter I think there is a difference between banter and ridiculing 'out of habit'. I might not get the fun part but this incessant habit of yours does more harm than good. So unless someone is hell bent on not changing their irksome behaviour (I personally believe even then this should be the lastest resort) I see no point in ridicule as a habit. And if you need to have your scoop of fun let me know I will suggest you atleast 10 others less hurting to people.

2) Cribbing: Agreed that there are things beyond someone's current reach. Things that are troubling you now or things that you just dont have control of. But cursing yourself or the society or the situation wont take you anywhere. I Also acknowledge that some use cribbing as a way of relieving the pressure. Thats a personal choice and acceptable until you are in control and dont suffer from its side effects. But personally I would rather prefer to devote some energy in easing the situation by working towards the solution than looking for a temporary relief.

3) Adamant Behaviour: There may be situations sometimes when the other person might make a valid point. Rarely as it may be, but believing that such an event can never occur just makes me pity you. So sticking to your point only because YOU have made it (Thats how it seems!) rubbishes all good points you have made to date.

4) Call Back: When you say you will call back. I wait for your call !! I understand you were busy. But why make the promise in first place?! Ok, for some people now I have set it as default to not process those words when they say it :)

5) Bargaining: Except for the bargaining with autowallahs in Delhi on the exorbitant demands they make, I see no point in bargaining. If the person feels that (s)he could make a fortune out of the little extra bucks they make out of me, I love to grant them the pleasure. Waise fortunately I havent been duped many a times and was mostly saved by the presence of ppl who bargained for me. So its high time I start loving this act ;)

Thats it! :)

I tag AC, Adil, Kauzzy, NMG, Vinayak & Ayush Try karo bhai logon..Its interesting!

March a memorable month..

The last time I wrote was special and I am amazed I could pull that off :D

Well whole of the last month was exciting. It started off with the much awaited Goa trip. It was our first trip in 5 years and as I mentioned it on orkut: It just had to be special!
Then was the one lone minor - 'The last minor of IITD life' (or the last 'second minor' if you like it that way!).
Followed by a special birthday celebration :P (again the last one in IITD!)
Immediately came an awesome departmental (dulla) party which everyone seemed to enjoy in their own special way (including me :P :P).
Then came the longing to be at home and the wait for a week during which I had a terrible health. Worst in this semester :(
And ya I am going back to Cambridge! This time just for one week for Novartis' orientation. Couldn't believe myself when the news came as I had given up all hopes of visiting that place again especially after I dropped plans for PhD. But excited to visit that place and meet everyone almost exactly an year after I came back :)

and now that I gather myself to write on my last day at home, I think of the things I have to finish off before leaving IIT Delhi. If I could follow the schedule, I would have like no time to sit down like this for the next two months. Dont know if I could do that!!

And that includes completing an interesting tag by Vik which I am sure I would have a great time contemplating. But due to my lethargy in general as with other things in life over the last three months I have left this one unfinished too!

I need some strength :)

Pune Times

Of all the neutral cities I have been to, my times in Pune turn out to be the best everytime I go there. And I truly love the people and the air of Pune for this.

To begin with you definitely need to know what a 'neutral city' is. Ok. So, a neutral city is one with which there is no 'give and take'. For example, cities like Tarapur (a small nuclear town), Rawatbhatta (another nuclear town), Bombay, Delhi and Boston where I have lived for a considerable amount of time and have been involved in some 'give and take' DO NOT come under this category. (Delhi, however would be on top in its category. But thats beside the point). So under the category of 'neutral cities' comes places like Pune, Goa, Dehradun, Chennai and New York where I have spent just the right amount of time without becoming an integral part of it.

Of Pune I still have a faint memory of my first visit there as a 8 year old for some relative's wedding. I remember the overnight journey from Bombay to Pune by road in an Asiad Bus with my grandmother. The Mumbai-Pune Expressway wasn't built then and the journey took us more than 5 hours through the ghats of Khandala and Lonavala. We reached Pune at around 4 in the morning and even today I can't forget the freshness of setting my foot for the first time in Pune. A small happening but a one I would cherish forever.

Since then every visit to Pune has presented a new and adorable Pune to me. Be it for a state level award ceremony with 2 classmates (who chose to become doctors !) and parents (when I discovered the 'educational hub' history of Pune), scouting a home for my uncle (when I discovered the serene and beautiful landscapes of Pune) or the last three visits to my bro's college, when I discovered a young and vibrant Pune. With the myriads of B-Schools sprouting these days in Pune ( the result: an energetic, pleasure-for-all-eyes crowd from all over India) and the recent Commonwealth Youth Games 2008 the city has got a completely new look all over it. And the Mumbai-Pune Expressway being operational for a long time now the Bombay-Pune journey only takes less than 2 hours.

The visit last week was particularly special as the family had been planning on a quiet and relaxing time together out of home for a long time now. And so it came with me and mummy landing in Pune for the weekend at my bro's place. Had a refreshing outing to the temple at Alandi followed by the famous Ganesh Temple courtesy Dagduseth Halwai. Then an amazing and sumptous dinner ( I am enjoying food these days courtesy The Gym :). More on it later !) at the food court of the Pune Central Mall followed by the scoops of Gelato ice cream ( A kind I enjoy at par and sometimes even more than the flavours of Baskin Robins). For mummy all cones are cornetto and all cups have to be vanilla ice creams. But she enjoyed it too! The bro was refreshed too and the family was all tired after a great day's adventure. That night I had a nice sleep after a long time. As I had already explored the hangout places in Pune during my two visits prior to the last with my bro, for the next day we planned to watch a natak ( which I was seeing after 7 years!) at the Bal Gandharva Rangmanch which was refreshingly hilarious. Then followed it up with Delhi 6. A cool and awesome movie with a splendidly pleasant performance by all, especially Sonam Kapoor. (I haven't see Saawariyan yet but Sonam Kapoor is really cool!). At the end of the movie I was reminded by a friend's call about a mail from Novartis that I had missed regarding my preference for the date of joining!! And so ended the weekend and I returned mentally and physically the next day to the place where I have been having a wonderful time of my life for the last 5 years.

The whole weekend and particularly throughout the movie I thoroughly enjoyed one sweet feeling! Watching a movie of a place on the top of the list of my Non Neutral Cities at a place on the top of the list of my Neutral Cities !!

What is your 'neutral city' list like?
Let there be light :)

Thoughts Part 3

In imagination you are bound by your knowledge, but knowledge knows no bounds.
Know More :)

All you dreamt was just a dream.

No experience can let you experience eternity but for eternity itself.

Good people should not taste blood.
But the fact is that only good people can appreciate the taste.

Alternative Answer


Giano Trulli

Thinking of the things I have lost, I have really lost a lot, physically.


The issue with God's language is that God speaks in silence.
Hence to understand that u need to be silent, hence patient, hence me.
yeah :(

Enjoy the contradictions.
Let there be light :)


Emotions, pls dont come my way.
You know I cant handle you.


Why should I strive for greatness..
Why should I be a pioneer..
Why should I make this world a better place..
Why be myself?

Why should I not talk..
Why should I have no emotions..
Why should I not get what I want..
Why should I not be sad..
Why be myself?

Why should I loose my focus..
Why should I care for the person I care so much..
Why should I not express myself..
Why be myself?

Looking for my guide. Looking for my light.

X, Y

X: Do you believe in God?
Y: I believe in believing in God until we realise that there is no God.

What does this mean?

4 of the 5 blogs that I visited just now had a recent post on cancer, Including mine.
yeh kya ho raha hai?


I have lots to share. But I wont. Not that I dont want to.
But I guess its better I dont.

Thoughts again..

The second edition of Thoughts, the first one of which had got me blogging after a long hiatus.. So, here goes the post again:

It all started with my birth and will end in my rebirth.

Whole of my life has been a flashback.
(Hope this becomes my epitaph!!)

Most of the times you get what you want, from the things you dont do. But for that you got to be persisitantly doing the things you are supposed to do.

You dont know whats in store for you until you go out shopping.

I have been keeping myself from writing this for quite sometime now. But I guess I cant keep it anymore. Preparing to leave the place was painful and whole of the last week was just overwhelming. Having met so many wonderful ppl and recieving their love and affection in abundance was simply overwhelming. In order to not expose my vulnerable side ( which is a janmon janmon ka issue with me as mentioned in A new me) I might have been weird in my behavior here most of the times. Sorry to anyone if that had hurt!
Weirder are things back here I guess. If only the politicos could realise the harm they are doing to their own progeny, at the least. CPM and BJP coming together should be the worst thing to sheve off the nuke deal. The kind of forces that have formed the opposition are really threatening. The fundamentals of their existence are being shattered. The sad part is that they know that we the people will choose to ignore this (atleast thats what they are hoping and unless we wake up this is gonna continue) and vote them back in the next election. Because afterall they are over own Hindu saviours and workers' messiah against the Italian watchdog.
Enough damage has been done now to wake up. We have been ignorant in the guise of being 'tolerant' and in the process have lost the shine of our past. I pity those who still believe that India is a super power and that it is the light for the world. The chidiya has long deserted us not because they stole it but because we in our ignorance guised as tolerance has allowed that to happen. The ignorance today is to not understand that without adopting to technology we cant feed over ever increasing population. Do they aspire to feed this population on the basis of a hand plough? Or are they hoping for some Devata to come down and help us cross the bridge?
I would be the last one to believe the necessity of one particular thing as the sole saviour. But the ground reality is that India badly needs infrasturucture to support its growth. We all know this. Power is one major issue and this deal is one good step in that direction. If you dont like it please suggest an alternative. Ignoring the problem is the worst way of 'solving' it.
Let there be light :)

While trying to prove something wrong, quite often you end up doing the wrong thing.

Some Recent Trips

Lives of great men all remind us,
that we can also make our lives sublime,
and leaving back footprints,
on the sands of time.

- Henry Longfellow (1807-1882)
[visited his house]

Woods are lovely...
... and miles to go before I sleep.

- Robert Frost (1874-1963)
[visited his house too..  :)]

Interestingly these were close Arians too.
That means I m going to mars too..
