THE CHILDHOOD THERAPY.. :) :) : A need for RESURGENCE

A guest post by Akshita 🙂

Something inside is impelling me..to mention these renowned lyrics.. “AA CHAL KE TUJHE..MAIN LEKE CHALUN ..EK AESE GAGAN KE TALE..JAHAN GAM BHI NA HO..AANSUN BHI NA HO..BAS PYAR HI PYAR PALE  🙂 ..EK AESE GAGAN KE TALE..”..

What is your biggest ‘ASSET ‘.. ??.. (Hint: Its not a Finance ques.. :P..neither am I asking you for your debit or credit card details.. :D)..

Well for me and I’m sure for most of us.. Our biggest Asset is our ‘CHILDHOOD’..  🙂 ..as it is the only ‘capital/property’ that nobody can steal from us or tamper it..rather it always act as a trigger to laughter or say smile for sure..when we try to scribble into the memory lane..of those good old days  🙂 ..(though its a blend of both good and bad memories..  :|)

The days when :

>> When we believed that Santa really exists and would come with number of gifts on the Christmas Eve.

>>When ‘Dad’- was our only Hero..infact THE SUPER HERO of our lives.

>>’Mom’-most loving and providing soul ever.

>>’Siblings’- Best Buddies 🙂 : when we had a secret to share.

>>Biggest enemies: when they leaked out our secrets to our

parents.. :-/ 🙁

>>When an enticement of a Barbie doll or a Video Game..made us do wonders in our
exams.. 🙂

>> The most Imp. day was “School’s Annual Report Day” –

>>Good Score: Ecstasy to reach home soon..(one felt as if he/she is the King/Queen of the
world 🙂 )..share it with our parents and then put the demands forward..may be a
watch, a bicycle or a video game (though most of the times it fell on deaf ears.. :()

>>Bad Score: The Doomsday..the only feeling that crept our minds was..God..I
don’t want to go home 🙁 ..and then tried all possible efforts to hide
the report card.. :/ (Yep..many a times..have actually done it..:( ).

>> When a pocket money of mere 100 or 200 bucks made us feel no
lesser than Ambanis or Mr. Mallaya.. 😉

>> When in Summers a Rs.2 Ice Cream in school tasted lots better than
today’s opulent Ice cream parlors.

>> When our lunch boxes having Mom’s cooked meals..tasted far better
than today’s sumptuous food outlets.

>> When hand made cards with crayons and sparkles over them had so
much of warmth enclosed in them..unlike today’s Archies and Paper
Rose..in which you just flip the card to see its cost.. (Don’t you..??.. ;))

>> Birthdays at home were the best parties of ones life with an excitement to
unpack those cute gifts.

>> When we just wanted a new apparels rather than a branded apparels..
figging them up made us feel no less than a Prince/Princess.. 🙂

childhood

Were we not happy??..Were we not satisfied..??..
Then..What happened now..??..Why such small things fail to turn us on ??..Why do we apply logic before emotions and still do blunders..??..
Reason is “A Quest for MORE”..infact its turning from “a Quest to a Lust for MORE “..we have turned too materialistic..and trust me this LUST is NEVER ENDING..

Nobody is asking us to become a hermit or a recluse.. Being Ambitious is very good..lets try and achieve whatever we want to..ALL DA VERY BEST FOR THAT..but a humble request is ..lets revise our lists of desires once.. Is it just .. A LUCRATIVE JOB/BUSINESS, A PRINCELY BUNGALOW, A LUXURIOUS CAR and AN AMAZING BETTER HALF..(the utmost desire.. :P).. or our list has some space for- A SEARCH FOR SELF, LOVE (just not for the other sex of our age..:P.. but for other creatures on this planet..the beautiful nature)  , a SELF-ESTEEM that can back our decisions anytime and everytime, and the foremost is HAPPINESS (that lies within).. 🙂

If these points are missing ..don’t you think its time for us to hone our thought processes..Of course..it is.. 🙂

We all have a definite span on this planet..Lets live it to the fullest..Lets learn to find happiness in every small thing around.. so SMILEEEEEEE… 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Ooohh laallaa.. Is this what I want..??? : SOTC..”World (INNER.. ;)) Tour”

A guest post by one of my best friends 🙂 Let’s welcome her to the blogosphere. 🙂

 

It being my first Write Up on a public platform..

“Am I nervous ??”.. 😐 ..Noooo..not at all (But I am having sweaty palms.. :/)..
“Am I bemused/Confused ??” ..Yesss..( that too to the power of Infinity.. :/)..
“Reason ??”.. I am trying to Introspect..the most baffling task.. :'( ( though it seems a duck soup..when it comes to judging others..isn’t??.. 😉 ).

Ok..Cummon..just ask yourselves ..what do you want ..Hmmnn..let me guess the response – BLANK (initially..isn’t? ) then giving a little more stress to our slacken up minds..we come out with exciting answers.. Girls..”A millionaire beau with lady killing looks..one who never eyes any other pretty lady ;)” and Guys..”A least demanding girl friend with looks no less than that of Katrina..not having any ex-boyfriends log.. 😛 “..

But is that all we want from life ??..Obviously not.. then what more..??..Befuddled..??..Let me try to simplify it for you..Lets use “NNL” technique..i.e. NOW, NEXT AND in the LONG-RUN.

Now the question arises.. How to apply it ??..For that matter..I am here with you..depicting my case as an instance.. :)..So Here We Goooooo…

 

NOW: (SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT WAIT FOR)

>> I want my curves back..(as of late I am developing flab and tummy too..hun hun.. :’-( 🙁 )
>>As traveling by public conveyance is a pain in Mumbai..so I want ..a driver and a cab..24*7 with me (Even Maruti 800 would do.. 😐 ).

NEXT: (IN A FEW MONTHS TIME)

>>Landing up in an ace B-school as I’ve already sailed through the written test..but the bigger battle is still to be fought..i.e. GD/PI round..
>>As my brain loves relaxing..(LAZY FELLOW.. :/)..but have been giving stress to it..for last couple of months (because of my MBA entrances).. I need to pamper it ..yeah..Its no less than a “Petulant Kid”..So I am planning a long trip with friends, Parties, Get together with loved ones..anything that could help me to escalate my jaded soul and mind.. 🙁

LONG RUN: (IN THE YEARS TO COME.. 🙂 )

>>A handsome Job..to be precise ‘having warm pockets’.. 😉 with a good will and a contentment of..”Great going girl.. 🙂 “..
>>A man who would say.. “Girl you are amazing ..just the way you are..”..(rest expected qualities I’m not mentioning..as the list is never ending/umpteen.. ; -P )..
>>A beautiful house with a well groomed garden..where I can rest my soul, chit chat with my friends and can pen down my emotions..amidst of beautiful floral ambiance..

So..this is my NNL..How about you..??
Come on..start applying this technique and surprise yourself with the experiences of your beautiful and unexplored underworld..this might even help many singles in finding an apt partner for themselves..(NO GUARANTEE ..NO WARRANTY though it’s not a Chinese Technology).. 😀

Are you ready now.. for a flight to explore your vivid heart and colorful soul.. 🙂 🙂

Reversal of Roles : Life @ NITIE

It is that very same time of the year. It’s been exactly one month since the CAT results were declared and the MBA season, right now, is in full swing. Anxious faces all around, B-Schools declaring their GD-PI lists, aspirants shooting their queries everywhere and the dream to get into the dream college lives on.

Everything is same as it was last year. The entire situation is just like a Deja Vu. I have lived it all already once and I am living it once again. But with a little difference this time around. I am on the other side of the table. Last year, at the same time, I was sitting in front of my system, reading the posts by the aspirants on the NITIE Pagalguy thread. There was a very anxious and nervous “magicalharsh” directing his queries to the seniors on the thread, who just wanted to be sure of it. And an encouraging reply by a senior meant everything that time.

NITIE gave me my dream. I made my way to the God’s own campus and little did I knew at that time that one year down the line the very same PG id of “magicalharsh” would be there on the same thread, but this time answering the queries of his to-be juniors rather then being answered.

There at pagalguy people ask the same question again and again. They know that the same question has been answered but somehow they wish to be answered individually. I know the feeling as I was also a part of the lot that used to do the same and hence, even after answering the same query umpteenth number of times I repeat it rather ambivalently. I can see the same anxiousness in their queries that used to be within me last year. Seriously speaking that was one of the most precious moments of my life because that was the period which really taught me how wonderful the feeling is once you achieve something that you had really longed for. And this was the first time I achieved something substantial in my life.

Life at B School has been much more awesome compared to what I had envisaged. Every moment here at NITIE has been nothing less than an awesome experience. Fun combined with learning. Be it the late evening classes at 9 or 10. Be it a snake crawling outside your room or a leopard spotted somewhere near the MDP. Be it Bawaal or NPL going on. Be it the 3 round committee selection process that would stretch until 6 in the morning. Be it the really anxious moments during the Slot zero of the summer recruitment process going on. Be it the case of short attendance and completing extra assignments to cover for it. Be it the plethora of competitions and case studies that you participate in. Be it the late night parties followed by a long walk with friends on the Marine Drive. Everything is super duper amazing.

Team IMPACT - NITIE

There are so many things that I can’t possibly pen it down all at one place. Every day is a new experience. Every day is a new adventure. A fun filled roller coaster ride it is. A ride which has added so many memoirs to my life. A life full of surprises and adventures. This is life @ NITIE. And for sure I love it to the core.

P.S. All the best to all the aspirants. It’s the time where you just need a last push, a bit of nitro to propel you forward. You surely will be rewarded for all the efforts that you have put in till now. Just one advice that I would like to pass to everyone. Never ever stop dreaming. Only when you dream, will you try to put it into reality. 🙂
