Its All In Your Mind

And then something that you awaited comes in front of you.. You raise your hand towards it.. But before you could reach it, it goes away. Leaving you thirstier and hungrier. This keeps happening over and over again. The feeling of 'just missed it..' becomes your companion.

"Who are you? You are your habits." My teacher used to say. Whenever I reach the level of a strange pain that can neither be fully felt nor be ignored; these words show me a way of correcting the wrong.

Words have a healing power. Just like the evening sky. Just like the presence of a loved one in your mind.

Ultimately, every happiness needs to flow out FROM YOU. God embraces you not when you cry out with pain; but when you laugh out with joy.
तिन्ही लोक आनंदाने भरून गाऊ दे रे
तुझे गीत गाण्यासाठी सूर लावू दे रे
तुझे गीत गाण्यासाठी सूर लावू दे रे
-Mangesh Padgaonkar

Dear God, Please give me the knowledge to sing your songs.. The songs of joy.. The songs of happiness.. The knowledge; to understand the essence of being human..

Oops! I didn't mean this..

Recently I tweeted about how certain people reflect their profession through their overall personality. And that I wish it happens to me one day..


Back Pain?
Swollen Eyes?
Lack of sleep?

No. Please No.

I like my field. I enjoy programming. But by "reflecting through personality" I seriously do not mean reflecting through my body giving up...!

W H E N P A N K H U R I? When will you understand the importance of Hardware? You can't run any super-amazing code on a malfunctioning CPU!!

Damn! Looks like I AM bad with A-N-Y kinda hardware! I better study Embedded Systems and break the ice! (What a blunder to take that elective!! The only mistake I've regretted making in my four years stay in Cummins!! What-kind-of-stunt-was-that!!)

Hmpf! Mom says I'll improve after Exams. I hope she's right about this like she's right about most of her predictions about me :D

PS : I'll miss Cummins :D (now who said "single tracked mind"? :P)
