Belated Happy Birthday Pearl!! :D :D

Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY :) :)
I hate my internet :( the moment is all spoiled.... I was so excited yesterday and wanted to wish you Yesterday only but my internet wasn't working it goes out of service hardly once or twice in an year why the hell it was the day I was waiting for so eagerly :( :(

Here is the birthday post I wanted to post yesterday evening...

***Today is your 1st birthday :D.... And here I am with a name for you... Pearl!
Pearl.... when it came in my mind I was not thinking about its meaning but once I started liking it I wanted to relate you with its meaning........

"Pearl is a hard substance found deep beneath the sea inside the shell covered with number of coated layers on it and due the presence of numerous layers it’s very hard in nature its appearance is soft and soothing.... "

Pearls are of different colors.... Earlier I thought of calling you "Pink Pearl" but then I felt it’s not going with my personality.... Way too girly... :P Second option was "Red Pearl" but it’s already given to Nokia's new phone series.... Well... I dropped the idea of using colors and I decided to leave it as Pearl only.....

In college all the time I was thinking about this moment when I’ll go home and wish you your first birthday...It’s such a great feeling... :D
I am feeling nostalgic :D.... Last year when I started writing I was stressed about my SIP and this year too scene is no different am worried about Job :))
But whatever I am happy about this one year.... We spent together :)) Writing was always my hobby but now when you are here in my life it’s a part of my life I know at times I feel lazy or moody or remain busy but the thought of your existence is always there in my mind... just like your loved ones whether you daily meet them or not but the feel that they exist is always there in the back of the mind.... I really wanted to do something special on your birthday so I tried poetry for you.... :) My first attempt exclusively for you :D here it goes......

You were with me when I was feeling low....
You gave me reasons to feel good and glow....

I shared with you the moments I smiled I cried
At times I was crazy but I never lied ;)

You are special and so is your day
Here I am wishing you a Very Happy Birthday :D

Love you Pearl…. muaah… :D :D

And thank you God for everything :)***

This was something I was waiting to post whole day long.... but anyways :) :)

Once again Belated Happy Birthday Pearl! :) :)

Note: Yesterday was my blog's first Birthday :)

Life is good….. “Full form of LG”

I have my Brand Management exam tomorrow…. So started with brand stuff :P
I am over flowing with various thoughts in my mind….. Dunno from where to start… It’s been a long time since I was here… more than a month…. I did miss my blog and my blogger friends but life is being different and dynamic…. I have finally shifted back home… And I have decided to continue rest last 2 months of my MBA from here only…. And I am loving it :)


I always hated Noida buses but now I have experienced it and I feel it’s not that bad… I have got few companions as well going college from South Delhi… Actually nothing can be worst than staying alone especially when you are not in any kinda relationship and people around you are too self indulged… yes, I do have good friends but how much a person can talk on phone with friends…. Even after spending 4-5 hours a day on phone still the feeling of loneliness never goes…. I personally feel people in true love never feel alone no matter where they are… In a group or just simply alone…. Because people in love are always accompanied by the thoughts of their better half (I hate using gf/bf terminology) if not them in person…. And they don’t even realize days… months…..years……

In past sometime, I came across people with different meaning of relationship and love… I won’t say they are anywhere wrong but they are different in thoughts…. Practical and materialistic…. They do not crave to be with their love nor they expect much… possessiveness is nowhere for them and they don’t mind or feel jealous seeing their better half with anybody or dating anybody else….. They truly ‘Understand’…. Must say they do…. I know I am a very possessive person :P and I personally lack ‘that’ understanding factor…. And my level-headedness changes its definition where relationships are concerned… Am I biased….?? Yes! I am :P

Sometimes I feel it’s only me wrong here… Now days everyone is practical and happy being so…. But why the hell I am not ready to accept the fact there is nothing called ‘the magical dream like feeling’ in real :’(

I feel I am still living in my school life…. Where this ‘feelings’ part was so prominent in everyone’s life…. Everyone moved on and I am still struck here… Yes, I do remember what I wrote in my last post was contradictory to this one…. But whatever…. may be am just feeling low ….. I don’t wanna write anymore… I have two exams tomorrow…. Customer Relationship Management and Brand Management…. I talked about relationships and started with brand LG… Now need to sleep… :P :P

And yes, my dear blog I remember your birthday is ahead just 3 more days are left… I was thinking of giving you a name on your day….. Search is on…. Let’s see... I gonna disclose it on your birthday only…. Love ya..

And God I am angry with you this time seriously :| Katti…

My 22nd Birthday…… :) :)

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday…. And hence it added one more year of experience to my life…. I was just recalling the things changed in past one year……. My mindset…. My priorities…. And I learned few valuable things which will help me forever….

Well, before jumping to the philosophy part I would like to share how my day was… it was great… I went to my old campus i.e., North campus with my graduation friend…. We roamed… enjoyed our favorite street food… then walked on the streets of Kamla Nagar Market…. Recalled old days and missed our graduation time…

Then I did shopping for my mom…. What can be better than buying gifts for your loved ones….. And to make them smile…. :D After that we few friends assembled at Connaught Place and celebrated my birthday… And that wasn’t the end… I then went to my place and celebrated with my family… :D….

It was a great day…. Though few things went wrong… some misunderstandings…. Misconceptions…. Which still need to be cleared :(

I can really sense the changes as m growing… changes around me…. In me… My mindset my outlook…. Everything changing…. Usually I cry on my birthday may be coz I want it to be perfect and to celebrate it with everyone I love which is not possible always…. That’s something cannot be justified…. Yesterday after 10 years I realized I have no tears left nor I bother about silly things… Yes I do feel terribly bad about few things but crying part is missing… And here I recalled my professor’s words….

In graduation, my Physical Anthropology professor once said,

“Enjoy the feelings you have today, the smiles, the laughs, the tears, the pain, the hurt…. Coz as you’ll grow mature you’ll realize you are losing all the feelings within… you’ll cry no more…. Very few things will hurt you and you won’t shed tears like you do today”

And today I realized how true he was…. I do cry…. But less now…. I do bother about people but very few people…. I do laugh but rarely…. Things so changed….. And so I am….

I realized people ditch you when you need them the most… Here people are those people who call you friend and enjoy moments with you…. But when you want them to stand beside you…. You’ll find them enjoying with others…

And suddenly I realized my post is going more towards sad things….. NO NO NO….. That’s just not me :P Some bad experiences were ruling my mind and it came out :P

Anyways…. Even after few bad things I love my life and all the imperfections and as I am growing I am falling even deeply in love with it…. I love My family, Myself, my life and few good friends :)

Life is the most precious gift of God and even more precious are the people whom I love and who love me… without them life is nothing…. And of course I love you my blog :D…. this is my first birthday with you.... Muaah :)))

And this post is incomplete without remembering the one I usually complain to for all wrong things…. My dear God…. Thank you for everything….. Love you :)

Disney... My Another Love :) :)

It just clicked my mind while watching another Disney movie ;)… Disney movies are something I can watch anytime…. During exams too I watched one…. It was “Another Cinderella Story”….. It was so damn good… I loved it just so much…..

Disney movies are more like living a dream…. So inspiring and motivating…. I always feel like am living a different life I always wish to live… In fact my real life is no less than any Disney flick ;)

Disney is my favorite since I was a kid…. I used to watch it in episodes during my weekends on DD2 and weekly cartoons which included Aladdin, Tale Spin, Duck tales, Gummy Bears, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy…. And so on…. But I started watching Disney movies quite later…. And now I am a die-hard Disney fan :)

Walt Disney worth to be worshipped for his work…. My madness even compelled me to search Walt Disney’s history, aims, purpose, life and everything….. I studied Disney as a company their work culture, kinda jobs, Marketing and advertising, work environment, ethics, life in Disneyland and everything… And of course opportunities for a fresher in Disney as a company :P but but….. they prefer LOCALITES….. Anyways I would say their hard luck here….. Though I know it’s mine :(( Anyways !!! :P :P

I admire Disney, I appreciate it and love it… I was into it since childhood when I was in 2nd standard… I was always a member of these Disney and cartoon network clubs…. I posted them my drawings, posters, and other handmade stuff…. And they used to send me their stickers, birthday cards and so on…. It continued for quite some time and then I got busy with my school and all… But I still have those 12-13 years old stickers :D

My mom says “you are still a kid watching cartoons and enjoying them”…. I hardly watch TV though… but whenever I watch I search for some good Disney movie or cartoon… though they have spoiled Disney Channel upto an extent by showing those stupid copied Indian programs :P but I still look for original ones….
Duck tales, Wizards of Waverly place, Jack and Cody, my all time favorite Lizzie and all…

No matter what my eyes will be on Disneyland…. If not as a part of their organization I’ll definitely go there for holidaying and adventure :)….. I am just looking forward to grab a good job…. Dunno how long will it take…. But it will happen I know :D

Hello God!! Can you hear me!!! I need a fairy right now…. ;) ;)

Are changing trends changing Men…?? ;)

Once I was reading a case about increasing popularity of men’s beauty products…. Hell… It was so damn interesting…. :D I was figuring out the reasons behind this revolution in the men’s beauty industry and also their changing mindsets regarding work, home, women and personal care… Here I would like to share my views….

Earlier, there was a time when only men used to go out for work and women used to take care of household chores... Time changed women also started moving out and engaged themselves in office work but it’s not only women who changed their place but same happened with men too…. They started working in kitchens simultaneously and started going to Men's Saloons and the use of Exclusive Men’s creams and products came into being…..

Of course there are few things which are still the same and can’t be changed as far as men are concerned :P… But then yes… they are now beauty conscious in fact many are even more conscious than women… They are regular about going to men’s saloons and their beauty treatments.. their complexion… Skin, hair style, waxing and everything which usually only women used to do….

I personally know few guys who are too conscious about their skin, hairs, fitness, complexion, dress up and all that… In fact I would say obsessed with it…

I remember once I stepped into the lift of my apartment and a guy was standing with his face covered with some sort of face pack…. He was kinda embarrassed too… :P and I was thinking how can he step out of his home like this! A girl would never ever come out like this except emergencies like earthquake or fire in the building :P

What are the basic reasons behind these changes in attitude of men…??? Well…. I feel one of its reason is women…. :P

Of course I can justify myself…. Why they need to cook or go to men’s saloons?? It’s because they are now required to prove that yes they can be all rounder too and women are proficient in everything whether it be cooking, home management, sports, work place stress, emotional stress, personal care, technology etc…..

And now cooking and other tasks are not only specified to fairer sex when both work equally and together…

One reason mentioned in the case was “Men are moving towards beauty products because of the increasing number of female employees at workplace ;)” Well, it can be one of the reasons….


Other reason can be overall personality…. Say if two people are going to appear for an interview for same job with similar credentials then personality factor plays a very important role…. Well groomed one is always preferred over the one who is messy and clumsy…

And no doubt looking good boosts one’s ego as well…. This is the reason why all the beauty products, deodorants, shaving cream advertisements project things like

“If you’ll use Axe effect or so and so deodorant you’ll be famous among girls”

Or in case of girls they show “fair and lovely can help you getting your dream job” :P

Though it doesn’t makes any sense because it’s not any deodorant or beauty cream it’s about way of perceiving yourself…. But these are the games which marketers play…. And they usually derive what they aim at by the means of these advertisements… I guess I am going deep inside marketing…… let me put a full stop here…

Coming out of marketing and entering in to the kitchen…. Earlier men were not into usual cooking but the changing trends like prolonged bachelorhood and dual income cultivated this habit in them… And of course it’s always good to be independent… ;)

Well, I know still not all guys are into going to men’s saloons or working in kitchen…. But in the changing scenario it’ll be a necessity for all…. And it’s always an added advantage for them to look good and cook well ;) ;)

And for this all I can say is "Good Luck Boys…!!!" :)))

LIFE is like a Game of TETRIS….

Tetris is one of my all time favorites… I can play it for hours….. And I started playing it when I was in class 4th… Since then I am into it…. That was the time when me and brothers used to fight for “My turn to play” and used to wait eagerly for the next turn……

Life changed so are we…We don’t fight for Tetris anymore nor for TV…. There was a time when we used to fight for TV remote… They used to hate discovery and random cartoons and I used to hate 24X7 sports channels….. They are into sports since they were in 4th standard…..

But yes there was something common in us and that was sports…. We used to play together and we had common friends…. We used to play every sport…. Whether it be cricket or football or kho kho or hide ‘n’ seek or whatever…..

Ahh… feeling nostalgic again…. Everything just flashbacked from childhood….. :) That was certainly the best time of my life :D

Coming back to Tetris…. While playing Tetris I was comparing it with life (it’s my natural inbuilt tendency… I just can’t stop thinking :P)…. Life and Tetris are quite similar… For instance in Tetris random blocks keeps on coming and we adjust them in our best way we can just like Life where different situations keeps on coming and we handle them in our best possible manner…. And just like the shapes of blocks the situations are also random and different in nature and design with their distinctive features and we need to fit/solve them accordingly…. When we adjust the blocks in the best manner we get extra points and in life we get best of results…. One more thing is you can never predict which block will be next or after that… it’s random without our will sometimes it is what we were looking for sometimes it’s not….. Same goes for life too…. We can’t predict what is coming our way next nor it’s always our wish but then life is a game we need to play in a best manner we can….. Sometimes things get messed up too and they can be resolved on playing well further… Mistakes teaches us and we can always try our best not to repeat them….. :D

Life is a well designed game by God…. And we all get an equal chance to play…. Now it’s up to an individual how to manage it…. yes, Destiny plays its role and so do Luck but then they are not the ONLY THING!

Well this was what I‘ve felt and few other things too but I guess this was what I wanted to write :D….. I love playing Tetris........ ;)

And life…. It’s my favorite GAME :D :D
.
P.S.: I know life is much more than just a Tetris game... but this was just a comparison... I love finding life in everthing I love to do :)

…..And LIFE moves on…..

Today my closest girlfriend told me about her formal engagement with a guy in her office… And I am really really happy for her :D

I remember before 4 months she had a break up with her guy….. And she was shattered though she wasn’t showing her pain… But I sensed it…. Then her guy got married to some other girl…. Arranged marriage and all that…. She was really very upset…. Honestly, I hated that guy for what he had done….

Anyways life moves on… She met some other guy in her office… though they were friends from the very beginning but things were never more than friendship and one fine day the guy proposed her and now they are getting married soon…. :) :)

Wow!! Thousands things started popping up in my mind the moment she told me about her engagement :D… Very first thing I asked her was “Do you love him?” and she replied “He loves me a lot” I again asked but “Do YOU love him?” and she replied “yes, I do and I’ll be happy with him”….. And also about all those li’l things he do for her…. That was really very cute :D

And I know she has realized why her last guy got married with someone else because she deserved someone better and that moron was damn unlucky :)

Once one of my guy friend told me… there is nothing called true love and its all about understanding and care… and if these two things are there you can spend your life with anyone… Well…. I don’t agree (I also feel only guys can think this way :P) though it’s just a personal opinion… nor I’ll justify the statement though I can… but I know one thing…. life is not so simple and obvious now a days like it was in the past…. When people knew that they will fall in love after marriage and live their life merrily…. Now things are different and people are complicated and so are their lives… you can’t take it for granted that the person will accept all your complexities…. And there you realize the value of love (of course m not talking about friendly, brotherly or motherly love here :P)… Because when you are in love you know you’ll do it and will win every situation… It makes life different and nothing seems difficult :D :D

I know when my parents talk about marriage in front of me I don’t react negatively though I know my mindset is very clear and what I have to achieve in life they too know my career goals very well… And I won’t blame them if they are worried about marriage and all… Earlier I used to deny now I just don’t utter a word…. No that doesn’t mean I am ready it simply means go ahead and I’ll handle things my way…:P :P ;)

I don’t think about this aspect of my life at the moment…. Before few days I saw a dream that I was about to get engaged with a guy I don’t love and I was locked in a room and I was trying to run away it was a very weird dream and specially when I don’t even think about this issue… it was a damn suffocating nightmare :P :P

I don’t know about people but I know about myself I can’t dare to imagine a life without love…. Nor I can fall in love with just anybody I meet… In fact I feel I can’t actually fall in love… Complex…. I know…. :P

I dunno what’s there for me in store… Right now have so many other things…. My MBA… my placement….. :)))

And then how can I forget I don’t need to take all this pain when God knows everything… I know He’ll handle it ;) ;) And he knows what I want from Life….
Whatever…. Dunno from where I started about myself…. Huh!! :P :P….

In the end, I just wanna congratulate my friend once again… Wishing her a wonderful life ahead :D….. Cheers!! :)))

God's favorite Girl :-)

Time is moving pretty fast…..Half of my 3rd semester is already over just like that…. Enjoying…. Having fun….. Exploring new opportunities….. And with time the fire within me is growing stronger… and deep… More I am moving forward more I am wishing to achieve everything…. My life before 1 year was different….

I had an ambition since I was in school and I knew I’ll do something good…. I was precise about my career path since my school time… in class 9th I wanted to be an Archaeologist…. But my love for science pushed me towards science stream….. That time I wished to be an engineer…. Since I was good in Biology my teacher used to praise me a lot and I was inclined towards medical…. But from within I knew I’ll never go for human-dissection so medical field never dominated my mind…. But yes I was throughout a topper in literature….. So when my result was declared my English teacher very hopefully and happily suggested me that I should do Mass Communication or English honors…. But something else was destined for me…. I gave all entrances…. Medical and Mass communication and luckily I got selected in both but none of the colleges were of my choice…..

Before I could have compromised I have got an opportunity to go for Anthropology honors which was a perfect blend of everything- Genetics, Medical, forensic, Archaeology, Social Anthropology, Practical fieldwork and required good writing skills…. And the best part Hansraj College… I am still thankful to God for choosing such a wonderful thing for me…. Yes! it was chosen by God…. Entirely by Him… I nowhere… never… asked Him for this… And I was blaming Him for not giving me Mass communication college of my choice of course I was not interested in medical… I gave its entrance just for the sake of it…

Entered into the college life…. It was beautiful and different…. A free life….. Independence of doing whatever… no uniform…. No boundaries….. No pressure…. A free bird…. Flying high…. Learned lessons of life….. Tried every stupid thing with friends…. Loved every damn bit of my graduation life and for the first two years of my graduation I was sure of doing M.Sc. in Anthropology…. But in final year a major change in my life turned me towards MBA…. I was so motivated by it that I knew I’ll do MBA… my friends were taking coaching for MBA entrance exams and I just thought of it! I wasn’t sure of cracking entrance exam and further stages…. And then I was restricted from giving CAT due to certain practical evaluation in college which was mandatory for clearing final year… Things were not coming easy…. But luckily I cleared the only entrance exam I gave and its further stages too….. Here again I’ll give the credit to God and of course my family who always supported me in my every damn decision…. No matter what!

M a driven person… driven by will power and passion…. And I know God is there for me…. The best thing He gave me is my family…. And people around me…. I am really a *Blessed gal*… :)

I know God I blame You at times….. Emotionally blackmail You by shedding tears…. Whenever things don’t go my way I shout at You… complain…. But trust me I really love You and have complete faith in You…. From within I know You won’t do any wrong to me…. And I know each time You show me WHY You do not listen to me… I know am still your li’l kid who is too reluctant to grow up…. And I know that You still love me that way…. :D…..

No Sorrow to Die...

This story is written and mailed by my dear friend Natesha whom I met during my official trip to Amritsar…..
I wish to express my word of thanks to her for writing such a beautiful piece of writing for me…. Thank you dear… :)


NOTE: THE STORY IS PURELY A WORK OF FICTION.

Here goes her work---

“It was definitely Love at first sight for me. Her name was Deepika. And she had come on an official visit to the office where I worked. Even though my meeting with her was preplanned, I had erroneously been informed that I would be meeting some gentle man. So naturally, meeting this gorgeous young woman took me by surprise. But that was not all. There was something about her that attracted me the instant I saw her. She was so beautiful. Those deep set brown eyes & that pearly smile could have mesmerized anyone. But there was something else too, some force unexplainable, that pulled me towards her.

"Hi mam! can you tell me about this?"

She was smiling sweetly as she held a piece of paper for me to see. It was the address of the office where she was scheduled to have a meeting.

"Ya sure", I smiled back, "I will take you there"

Accompanying her to the meeting was an official duty, but I would have gladly done it even otherwise. Since the meeting was quite some time later, we started chatting casually. I was falling in love with her and would have done anything to spend a few precious moments with her.
Of course, she would never know it. It was not that she did not like my presence, I could sense that she liked being with me. But she would never understand the way I was feeling for her, never know what was going on in my mind. I would not blame her though. She was straight & engaged to the man she was hopelessly in love with. I told her that I was also engaged to be married in a couple of months' time.

"Oh! Congrats!" She again flashed that sparkling smile of hers.

"Thanks", I said feebly.

My engagement had not been with my whole hearted consent. I had been coerced into it. From the day I told my parents that I was lesbian, all hell broke loose in my house. Instead of trying to understand me, they simply accused me of being abnormal & perverted. They blackmailed, brainwashed & begged to be a "normal girl”. And for this, it was important that I married a man like all "healthy minded" women do. Accepting my sexuality & coming out of the closet itself had been an enormous challenge, and now I just could not bear the emotional torture my parents were piling up on me. So I had agreed to the proposal they had been insisting upon even though I had never met that man. But I knew instinctively that this marriage would never take place.

Tringg... tringg.... tringgg.....

It was Deepika's cell phone ringing.

"Its boss", she said, making a mock serious expression. She moved away from her chair to take the call. Her boss had called to inform her that the meeting had been canceled.

"Hey, let’s go for a walk then", I suggested. My own boss was absent from office that day, & I decided to make good use of this opportunity.

As Deepika & I set off together on a short walk, she told me about her future plans & ambitions. The more the time I spent with her, the more deeply I was falling for her. I just could not take my gaze off her angelic face. Suddenly she looked at me in the eye & asked about my future plans.

I lowered my gaze."Whatever my parents decide"

She started laughing on hearing my reply. "Ha ha ah you are such a typical Indian girl!”

I simply gave her a pathetic look. There was not anything else that I could do.
How could I ever tell her about my future plans? How could I tell this girl who was so much in love with her life that I no longer loved mine? How could I tell this angel who made me feel so alive that I planned to commit suicide?
She sensed my discomfort.

"Hey, I did not mean to hurt you. I just want to tell you that you should do only what you really feel like doing. You should not give in to others' pressures."

"Hmm.. ya.."

By now we had almost reached back to my office. It was 7 O'Clock in the evening & the sky was churning out different hues of orange, pink & dark blue. I looked as she marveled at nature's beauty.

"What a beautiful evening! I am so happy to have spent it with you, I just like you so much!"

She hugged me tightly for a few seconds. When she had freed me from her arms, I looked deep into her sincere dark eyes, & felt engulfed by love. The kind of love that reaches deep into your soul, deep into your very being. The kind of love that liberates you from all worldly attachments, the kind of love that takes you to a higher realm.

"I love you", she whispered into my ear, holding my hand.

"Me too", I smiled back.

Meeting Deepika had made me realize the power of true love, and once you are touched by it, there is no looking back.
Even though she had made me see the beauty of life, still I would go along with the things I had already planned.
I would go home & end this hopeless life of mine. I knew I would have to do this, there was no other way out. But now, I would have no sorrow to die as I had experienced true love in this life time.”

“I simply loved your work dear…. You are such a sweetheart.. Your writing skills are really very well… Wishing you all the luck, success and happiness for future…. Take Care…. :D :D”
Loads of Love…
Deepika

A DOZEN things to be accomplished in my Tweenhood.... ‘A tag’

Tagged by: Hemu…
Here goes the list of 12 things I would like to achieve in my twenties…. Though my dreams are quite big… but since they are dreams... And dreams have no limit….. :) :)

1. First thing is to complete my MBA and to grab a good job with a package by which I can fulfill dreams of my parents and my all luxury dreams.. ;)
My dreams include….
In next 5 years: To buy a luxury car, a house of my own with at least 5 rooms(not going into details of that), bank balance from which I can spend money blindly without checking out the balance and knowing that I have much to throw, to build an orphanage and an old age home.
In next 10 years: To have my own private jet, to buy my dream company, to buy a luxurious beach house on a deserted island of Australia… ;)
**not going in details of all other comforts….
(M very down to earth you see) ;) ;)

2. To marry a guy of my dreams…. Umm…. Its not a right time nor place to discuss about this…. ;) ;)

3. To give my Family a wonderful life of their dreams or even better…. :D

4. To learn horse riding and to spend at least one year or say 6 months (lack of time)…. on a ranch….. And to experience “Ranch Life”…. It’s my inner dream…. Its a life which I visualized while reading my favorite novel…. ;)

5. To indulge in adventure sports for fun….. And to try every damn scary adventure sport…. Rock climbing, river rafting, scuba diving, bungee jumping, skiing, para gliding…. Just everything…. :D

6. To associate myself with one sport for the rest of my life…. Whether it be tennis or badminton…. To keep myself not only fit but also sharp and focused….. (For only fitness gym is there)

7. To go on a world tour and to enjoy photography and to live life to the fullest…. I remember when I was a kid I used to watch a program on “discovery channel” named as “Lonely Planet”…. I would love to live such life…. In fact I would love to do such job too :D

8. To adopt a ‘below poverty line’ village: Rasoolpur and to work in order to improve it….

9. To have people around me to admire me and love me…. After all m a Libran gal…. And it’s an inner need of Libran people to have loving people all around…. ;)

10. To visit Disneyland at least once in every year along with my family…. :D :D

11. To achieve everything I wish for…. No matter what!

12. Though I love being a kid but yes I wanna be li’l mature in order to understand the hidden intentions of people….. :)

Well… 12 are too less for me…. But these are what came in my mind first while writing… I might have skipped many super crucial ones ;)
I believe in God..... I believe in Myself.... :D

"Drinking Habits Among youngsters" A SURVEY....

Last weekend I worked for a Market Research Company in which I had to conduct a small survey and had to collect Interviews of 175 youngsters ranging between 21-35 years of age….. Of course a person aged 35 is not a youngster but that was the upper limit.
When I first read the requirement notice by the company, it was clearly mentioned that they require 3 people for the survey… I thought it’s very easy and we two friends in a team will do the entire thing in one day…. We had a deadline…. Till Sunday 3pm we had to submit the data….
We approached the person concerned and got to know that we had to go through a short briefing before the survey…. We went for briefing and came to know that we had to visit different corners of Delhi in order to collect the data and that’s so through personal interviews…. Different corners meant different universities in Delhi which are poles apart… I sometimes wonder how I met someone so CRAZY like me… And we enthusiastically accepted the work…. Hell yeeah.... ENTHUSIASTICALLY…. Ha ha
It started, Saturday morning…. We hired a cab (of course we were paid well for that) and started with our work… We thought of starting with South Delhi… Since its admission season it was difficult to find people above 21 years of age 70% were ranging between 17-20… But then work is work….
Started with Venky college…. Came across many people… here i am elaborating a few…. One guy was there for his younger brother’s admission I interviewed him (main highlights):

Me: what comes to your mind when you hear the word “liquor”?
He: (with a smile on his face and sparkle in his eyes) Liquor… Whiskey…. Where is the bottle… it excites me
(his expression was loud enough to say it all)
Me: your perception/opinion about Liquor?
He: Well, in my opinion it’s one of the best creation of Man and everyone must drink it…..
(and before I could say anything) it should be neat, on the rocks (lots of ice), a girl to serve it…
Me: (Before he could continue I prompted) you are done FULL STOP. Thank you. (After a pause) You are here for your brother’s admission, right? Does he know your views and all about liquor…?
He: NOOOOO……. He doesn't know anything !!
Me: :P

I met girls too asked them the same set of Questions…. I am glad to say at least girls are more sensible and intelligent when it comes to “Liquor”... they too drink (some of them) but wisely…. Unlike guys who are desperate every now and then to grab a bottle :P
I collected data from venky and headed towards another college….. I am skipping ARSD…. Lets talk about MLNC, there I entered in one classroom where admission was going on…. And most of the people were busy filling forms… I approached a guy from North east (first target in that college and the first and last one who rejected to give interview :P)

Me: (Smiling face :P) Hello… You are here for the admission, Right?
He:
(Looked at me as if am an Alien, speaking Chinese :P)
Me: Can I take your two minutes if you don’t mind?
He: NO!


I studied with a North Eastern guy in my graduation, I understand... he had no knowledge of hindi, so I consider all north easties as Zero in Hindi…(though few can speak very well in Hindi)…. But Hello… I was talking English dude…. Gemme a break….!!
I walked straight out of the class…. Was sitting alone on the stairs of the college and was just observing people moving here and there with no interest in asking any further Q to anyone… A guy approached

He: Hi, are you here for admission?
Me: No.
He: For Mark sheet?
Me: No
He: Actually, i saw that you are sitting here alone since quite sometime. May I help you, I am a final year student Political science, I am here to help students coming for admission.
Me: I explained the whole thing...….
He: Iam Faiz, you can take my interview
(I conducted his interview and we started chit chatting)
He: I cleared TOEFL and am going to Germany after my Exams
Me: that’s good
(We continued to talk for some more time)
He: how many more interviews you need?
Me: 20 more from here
He: Only? Just gemme sometime and be here
Me: okay!!

After sometime I was surrounded by guys too happy to give their interview :D
It wasn’t difficult at all…. All credit goes to Faiz….
I thanked him and moved to North campus, A place where I spent 3 most precious years of my life….. A place which makes me nostalgic everytime i go there............
I first headed towards my college, Hansraj, conducted few interviews, roamed in college and went to my science faculty…. Got few people for interview and in the end I moved to the Arts faculty, and there I met an interesting personality… His name was Varun
My team mate approached their group (2 guys and 1 girl)
He started with the interview of one guy, I with the other

Me: (After filling the details) first thing comes to your mind when you hear the word “Liquor”?
(Sorry but I don’t remember precisely what he replied)
After few usual survey questions… He started with his Questions,
He: what are you doing? Is this your job?
Me: Nopes, m a student it’s some research work m doing for experience
He: studying what?
Me: MBA
He: I am also a MBA graduate from Amity. Which semester and college?
Me: IIIrd (gemme a break, i am the one who is supposed to asked Qs not u :P)
He: what’s your name?
Me: Deepika
He: full name
Me: Deepika Gupta
He: Delhiite?
Me: yess, k tel me which of the following drinks do you consume? (i had a list of drinks)
He: I have tried all…. Do you drink? (Again his Qs started)
Me: NO
He: Seriously? Actually I also don’t drink….. actually in past 6 months since I joined office….. blah blah
Me: :P….. it’s okay!! Don’t worry, your name is not going to be there in the magazine it’s a general survey
He: I don’t care even if it’s gonna be there
Me: Thank you.

He was the last interview of that day…. Pheww!!! Hell it was Tiring….
After that we submitted the data collected….
Well, I dunno when the data analysis will be out… What I can say is… guys are more into drinking…. Than girls…. They love Whiskey(most), beer and Vodka…. Whereas most preferred drink among girls is Vodka…
My last weekend was good… I have already started looking for work for this weekend and further weekends… I can’t sit idle for two complete days… As far as hanging out, chilling is concerned… I do it daily…. Remember, m still in college and I still have an option of bunking ;))
Life Rocks!!!!!! \m/ :D :D

My Busy… Lovely Weekend…… :)

I had a great weekend… Worked on Saturday…. And enjoyed my Sunday…. Weather is hot like hell here umm around 45 degrees…. I still enjoyed it…. :D
Am feeling so damn tired right now…. But coz am excited and happy I feel like writing :D
I worked on a project on Saturday….. It was a survey for a market research company…. Nothing to do with college curriculum…. It was an interesting survey in which I took 175 personal interviews(actually we in a team of two) and visited north campus, south campus, JNU and my present college all in one day…. And the topic was something very much appealing to the youth and that was “Drinking habits among youngsters” ;)
During my survey I also got a chance to visit my love my college ‘Hansraj’… Man… it was so nostalgic…. I missed all those times when I used to bunk and roam and enjoy with friends…. Every moment just flashed back…. Also enjoyed my favorite ‘Bhelpuri’ :D
It was hectic day…. I worked for 10 hours… And met many interesting people…. ;)) I wanna mention few of them but feeling very tired to write details…. :’(
Coming to my Sunday…. I went for ‘New York’ and spent my whole day out…. It’s something I liked…. I wanna write my review on it…. And I cried too in the end…. Well…. It happens with me…. I don’t watch… movies I LIVE them…. I feel them by heart and that’s why they affect me big time…. Will come up with my review on ‘New York’ may be in few days….. But in short it’s worth watching….
I really need sleep now… Aaah m left with my presentation… which is tomorrow in the morning… and I gonna make it in the early morning itself…. Then have to finalize my project title but for that I have deadline till tomorrow 4 pm… So I’ll do it in tomorrow’s Lunch break…. Whatever I’ll handle it :D :D
I am finally stopping here…. Love you God…. Muuaah… :D

Life is "Eventful"

Life is being different since my internship ended….. Well, I would rather say its eventful…. Things I never thought happened… things I never wanted happened…. Faced situations I always wanted to avoid…. And most of them are quite personal to share here publically…. But then life is not always a bed of roses and my life is even much better than the majority of the people in this world… so no issues…. :D
Sometimes I think life in past was so stress free… Wait , from past I mean life in “Stone Age” ;)….. Aah no tension of studies, job, money, love, honesty, responsibility….. Blah blah…. Well yes you must be thinking the opposite of course that there were other tensions and I know those were still easier to handle… We as humans not making life easier but also making it more complicated and difficult….. (Look, who’s talking ‘a tech-savvy’ herself blaming mankind for technology).. :P
We are creating reasons for the next destruction, when nature will quit and we’ll be nowhere (though I know am not going to live that long but it bothers me a lot)…
My internship was good and I miss it a lot at least there I was close to nature and was doing something which gave a feeling of immense satisfaction… but as they say nothing is forever…. People I know were dying to join back college moment their internship started….. Few didn’t liked the work and few didn’t wanted to work…. Whatever the reason it may be I miss my internship…. :((
In just one month of college I feel am living “Rang de basanti” kinda life….. Where I have a reason to fight….. a reason to stand up against all odds….. A reason to work in benefit of others and in order to improve things… Fighting for all that we deserve and we should have… And while doing all this I really miss my Marketing professor who is no more :’(…
Classes are as usually mandatory for attendance….. I do attend most of them in order to fulfill the criteria… As long as studies are concerned I can study any moment really want to.... But my focus here is other prevailing college issues…. Let’s see how far it’ll take me…. But one thing is sure when I have started it I’ll do it….. I find it difficult to understand the words “No” and “impossible”….. only thing I know is “yes” i will do it… when I think about it I can feel the fire within me.... Ahh life is…. A struggle :D…. Latest event am working upon is our first “guest lecture” for this new semester coming up this week… And guess what am organizing and hosting it.... Am kinda excited and stressed… its first event for the junior batch so it should be good…. Well, my fingers are crossed…..
And for overall issues…. I would say….
So I lay my head back down, and I lift my hands and pray”…. (A line from favorite song “only hope”)
Amen.

A Mind-boggling Experience…..

When I started writing on my recent journey to Rasoolpur a village 155km away from Dehradun... I couldn’t find word better than “Mind-boggling”….
Yes, this was something I never seen before…. Everything teaches us something new…. And so was this one…. I am a kind of person who loves beauty and I adore it by heart….. Whenever I get a chance to spend some time with nature…. I grab it…. this journey was somehow different….Yup, I was lost in the beauty of hills and greenery of Rajaji National park but apart from that I came across a lifestyle…. Which was new to me….
Where people think before spending 1 rupee…. for whom 100 Rupees means a month’s income….. People who don’t even have fans where I can’t think of being without AC….. Where 95% people are illiterate and children don’t want to study….. Though I have read about such villages in India but this was my first practical experience and am sure this was not the last one…. This will definitely not gonna end here…. It touched me internally….
It was a 5 day trip to Dehradun in which I visited Rasoolpur twice….. Inbetween I also interacted with 7 guys of the same village who are staying in Dehradun for their vocational training… And we played cricket, had conversations…. And of course work…. :D
Dehradun is a beautiful place… Perfect blend of a city life with cool weather…. You won’t feel anything missing… from Barista to Levis…. Everything is there….
After reaching Dehradun I realized that I was not carrying any Indian outfit for village visit…. So I went to the market to buy a suit… but see my hard luck that was election day and entire market was closed then in the evening I luckily got one shop and had to buy whatever I got with very few options.. :(( and only I know how I managed that….. but that was too fun…. :D
In between my trip I touched Massurie too…. I said touched coz I went there for just 2-3 hours… Went there had lunch and came back… Then again work….
But I loved my journey…. Had long drives which I just love like anything…. Drive to massurie in hills, to Rasoolpur through Rajaji National Park….. It was just wonderful….. The beautiful scenic beauty throughout the journey….
I have so much in my mind… but I can say am feeling kinda speechless…. Dunno from where to start…. It was all so perfect….. From morning till evening…. For all 5 days…. I wish to explain every bit of it…. From the very moment I reached there…..
Okey let me try….. It all wanna come out of me…. I reached Dehradun…. It was Election Day… A car was waiting… I went to my hotel…. Refreshed myself and went to the office…. There I discussed the entire project with the head of the organization….. And decided the schedule for the next four days.... And here started my work….
Next day was Rasoolpur visit…. It was a memorable experience……. but somehow it was very disturbing to see people in such condition…. Then came the evening…. I don’t remember much… I guess I went market…. Umm… yeaa I went market…. And had my favorite ‘Hot Chocolate Fudge’ :D…..
Next day was in Dehradun when I interacted with village guys and we played cricket…. Then had meeting in the evening with project officer….. And the day ended…. With of course many other things :D
After that I got one day for making report in which I decided to see Massurie as well… :))
The day was really good and the weather was just awesome…. It rained as well…. :D
And here comes the last day when I had to catch train…. That day I went Rasoolpur again…. Had interaction with people…. Discussed the project going on there…. And rushed back to catch train….
Overall I had a good learning experience…. though it was very painful to see people in such condition…
I remember I asked God before few days… I wanna see people who really need my help…. And I got my Answer………..

You know what God!! You always do this when I ask something you just show me the reality…. which at times hurt me too…. But then…. I love you for that…. Now just show me the path to walk upon…. Just help me to be ‘Human’…...... I just wanna be a human…..
Yup, this time I got time for photography too......
