The ‘F’ letter word

Life is not a straight path between birth and death. It is like a silk thread twisted umpteen times and is full of twists and turns, ups and downs. We all aspire for something to have in our lives.

A few might get what they want and the most of them, like me, are still finding what exactly makes them get it what they want. But still the journey continues, no matter you get or don’t get what you wanted.

Life is the best mentor one can ever get. Only thing is that you should be willing to take cues from the life and live it to the fullest.

Today, I wanted to share things that most of us would have aspired at different stages of my life and what one can learn from them. Rather, what life teaches us from them as our best friend!

@ 5 years – wanted to play with as many toys. Wanted to break them, remove the screws or levers and see what’s inside

@ 10 years – wanted to become a cricket player. Very possessive of your friends, things, toys and many more

@ 15 years – Wanted to have a gang of 15 to 20 friends. Hang out and enjoy as much as one can

@ 20 years – a couple of good friends for life and an aspiring career

@ 25 years – a goal in life to achieve and few friends whom you consider them as an integral part of your life

(Stopped @ 25 as I can’t comment on years after that without me experiencing it)

As a 5 year old child, each of us is pure at heart. We had no idea of rich, poor, bad, good, beautiful, ugly, caste, religion. The best part of the life every one of us lived but we had no idea what we were experiencing then.

As a 10 year old kid, you are extremely possessive. You feel offended for silly things, fight over petty issues and consider everyone in your class as your best friend. You get to have the first taste of a feeling called “friendship”.

As a 15 year old boy, you wanted to have a group with whom you share common interests. You wanted to enjoy as if there is no tomorrow. You are proud of what you are, how you are and support your friends to the greatest extent. Sometimes, more than your family!

As a 20 year old teen, you wanted to experience the world as you come out of your college studies. You wanted to have a couple of friends, say 3 to 5, with whom you can share everything. They are your moral supporters and you feel free to share things that you even cant share with your family members (Yes, it is common. Don’t you think?). You feel stronger, more confident, refreshing when you talk to them.

As a 25 year old man, you set a goal, be it personal or professional. And one goal that everyone aspires is to have at least one friend for life time. You may have by then a friend or two with whom you feel you are the real “You”. You feel they are the integral part of your life and with whom you life is incomplete.

Friend”…

This is something what everyone, irrespective of what they are, wanted to have in their life. At least, one!

So, my dear friends…

As a friend, you are one of the most important persons in your friend’s life. Don’t ever try to mislead, cheat, or deceive your friends.

Your friend,

My First Valentine…

We all love to love others and get loved by them. It’s basic human nature.  Today on the eve of Valentines Day, my thoughts travel back to my childhood days and my first valentine. Yes, my first valentine at the age of 5 years.

I was in Anantapur when I was about 4 yrs. We stayed at All India Radio quarters in first floor. In the ground floor, right below us lived my first and best friend Vaishnavi. She is a Tamilian. She is a sweet girl and we used to always stay together. She used to study first standard while I was in UKG. We were in same school and travelled in the school bus sitting side by side. We really enjoyed each others presence. We always played together, read together, and at times take nap together under the banyan tree near our home. It’s one of the most memorable times I had in my life.

My other friends always teased us for staying together and they spread the news that we were in love (See how the little minds think at the age of 7 and 8 😛 ). In fact, that was the first time I came across the word “LOVE”. I don’t know the meaning of it then and I thought that we are in love as my friends were saying so. I even told her “I Love You” and she in turn said “I too Love You”. And this was how she became my first valentine of my life. The first kiss of my life was given to Vaishnavi, my first valentine, on the last day of my first standard half-yearly exams. The days were going great with Vaishu beside me and playing together in the ground, in the fields and around the banyan tree.

But this happiness didn’t last too long. The final exams came and with it, the summer holidays too. I left Anantapur and came to Vizag to visit my grand parents. I returned back after a month and I was shocked to know that Vaishnavi’s dad got transferred to Coimbatore. I never saw her again in my life. I missed her very much. May be, she too. This was how my first (last till date) Valentine ended in a bit of tragedy.

This is the story of my first Valentine and I am still single :P. I think everyone has their first Valentine in their life at some stage or the other. What’s your first valentine story?


Orey!

Recently, Siddharth film Oy! was released in theaters. The movie was reported to acheive good openings in cites and towns. At last the people were finally coming to theatres after a long time to watch a tragedy. The heroine was earlier a childhood artist. The crew did not reveal her identity until 3 days before the movie was released that created hype for Oy! However, this did not attract me to write the post here. The one thing that attracted me was the caption of the movie. Continue reading

The Last Night…

There were a few high tides in the sea. We sat on the wet rocks on the sea shore of Teneti Park. The cool breeze from the sea soothed us. And…

” I feel that these 4 years of engineering went on like a few seconds.”
” Yup! Me too. Of course this happens to every one. One has to pass through these stages.”
“It’s really been a wonderful time to spend in Vizag. I miss this place, this atmosphere.”
“Yes. This place is like heaven. But I’m not gona miss this.” Continue reading

Shocks R oc K s

” I am late. Its already 9.20″

At 9.30 – ” God! The exam must have started”

I was running to the department as i have to write the mid-exams (internals). To my surprise, all my friends were waiting at the corridor with Kamaraju in their hands. Kamaraju is the author of HVE text book. It was quite interesting that our exam was postponed to 20 min. as they were having some meeting. Its really a shock as this kind of situations rarely happen in our dept.

I was about to enter the exam hall and I was shocked to see Continue reading
