Life always take a u turn when you can’t imagine even in your dreams but the outcome is good sometimes. When I was transferred from Chennai to Coimbatore, I least expected the same fun and energy from this city compared to Chennai. But it has been a good experience and a completely new journey with a lot of memories.
The main thing I noticed coming to this city is the peace and silence that is super awesome. As soon as you reach this city the main thing that attracts you is the peace, calmness and silence. Living in Chennai was like I used to wake up early, get ready, rush to office, come back to my PG that too fully drenched with sweat and exhausted, have my dinner and then again go to sleep. I am following the same schedule in Coimbatore also but here the weather is so cool and good compared to Chennai, traffic is also not that bad, people are very helpful and since the city is small the distance between two places is also very small.
Life always teaches you a lesson that you often forget to interpret and in most cases people are late to find out why things turn up the other way at last. This has been a very crucial time of my life because I have found new friends that are an important part of my life now and even I have lost few friends. I have faced very awkward situations, have cried many times, smiled many times and a faced a lot of situations that had taught me a lot.
I was born in Bhopal, completed my schooling from Bhopal itself and now for the first time I am out of the city. I have been surrounded by my relatives, friends and family till the time my graduation got completed. The experience of living independently alone in a completely new city, the problems and challenges you have to face when you can’t get the help of your relatives specifically your family were completely unknown to me.
Meanwhile life goes on and doesn’t wait for someone to adjust accordingly. You have to adjust and whether you like it or not you have to face everything that comes in your path. It is often termed as a path that is full of ups and downs, you can fall while walking on this path but you have to stand and again continue walking on the same path irrespective of the pain, happiness, agony or anything.
It has been around four months i am coming back to Bhopal after training and deployment. Going to your hometown is a awesome experience because you can move freely here and there around the city .Everything is known and you just love to visit those same places where many memories are attached. You feel refreshed and it helps in maintaining and stabilising the various things that disturb your mind.
Although i suffered from sunstroke, fever and dehydration after coming to Bhopal, I never wanted to get disturbed because of these things. So i just maintained calmness for some time and got the required energy which I seriously wanted.I was craving for a week holiday and now i am absolutely enjoying these holidays.
I sometimes wonder about the energy and calmness someone gets when he or she gets in touch with his family or go on a vacation.I would strongly recommend those who haven’t spent time with their family to go and rejuvenate themself with new positive energy by spending time with their family.
I asked my manager about a week extension since my reservation is not confirmed and i want to get completely healed ,but as expected he rejected my request and instead scolded me.But i am satisfied with the way i spent this week and it was an awesome vacation
Happiness is something that cannot be defined , can’t be created , even can’t be destroyed and it cannot be transformed as well. So why don’t we share happiness ?? Sharing amplifies the overall effect of it and is the only way by which we can pass on this amazing thing created by god to other and can make the life of people around you more beautiful and joyful.
As I write this post celebration have just started in my neighbour’s house because it’s the birthday of one of the kid living in that house. It can be easily seen from my room’s window how happy people are because there faces are twinkling with happiness.Its midnight and as the calmness of the night is increasing a deep sense of satisfaction is increasing in my mind.
So what is main reason of this satisfaction?? Why we feel happy when we also celebrate with lots of people all around ?? Is there anything special in celebrating with people ?? What is the difference or does it really matters at all ??
When you celebrate any occasion with a group or with anyone else.You share your happiness with the person or a group of person that time, in return that person also amplifies your happiness by adding his share of happiness with your share and transfers it to others and others follow the same thing and cycle goes on .
Happiness is related to positive energy. When there is a lot of negativity all around in the world we need a lot of positive energy that helps to rejuvenate our body and mind to perform better in our life. Happiness provides that positive energy and that is why it is often related to better living.
It really matters when you celebrate with others because the more you share your happiness the more it will be ‘Amplified’. And there is nothing wrong to be happy and to think how we can perform better in life.
So the next time when you have to celebrate a special occasion or you have to go to a party,gathering or anywhere else don’t hesitate because there is nothing wrong to share your happiness with lots of people whom you wish can also enjoy and celebrate and also don’t even hesitate to be part of someone’s celebration because by being the part of it you will feel happier and memories that can be cherished will be created.
I have been teaching since last 3 years and it has been an awesome experience because teaching has provided me immense satisfaction and has taught me a lot of things. I am now more patient and have learned how to do something with dedication,hard work and a focussed attitude. It has also helped me in exploring the various forms of people and lifestyle related to them.
Life is an amazing journey and when you observe things around you very closely you can easily learn a lot of new things in your life . It has been few months when i along with my friends have been teaching underprivileged children in Bhopal and helping them in their studies so that they can perform better in life. I met a kid studying in 4th standard whom I taught Maths and Science and even I got a opportunity to closely observe his life. He used to live in small house made up of bricks ,aluminium sheets and grass in the nearby slum areas when I for the first time met his mother , father and her sister and saw what poverty is and how poor people actually live in our country.Despite of many schemes and funds being released by the government there seems no change in the life of these people.
I asked him that what you want to become ? He said “An Engineer !!” I just because of curiosity seeing his affection towards engineering asked “Why ?” He responded with a lovely smile “Bhaiya main apni life change karna chahta hu …aur mujhe naye ghar banane main maja aata hai(I want to bring a change in my life and I love to make new house) I was stunned and literally appreciated his dreams and passion. His mother said he studies on his own and at night when there is no proper environment to study in this house and the surrounding areas he goes to the nearby bridge and studies there utilizing the street light for his studies. I was really shocked seeing the devotion of that kid. Even I met a lot of kids like the one I previously mentioned and all of them expressed the same thing or have the same dreams.
After my graduation I started teaching a Kid studying in 4th standard in a very popular school promoted by a Media company in my city. I could easily saw the difference between the two kids the one who lived in the slum and this kid who reside in this over sized bungalow that was usually left empty because the kid’s parent were not in town most of the time or were not at all free. They were busy in their business and partying with family,friends and business partners. He has all sort of distractions like a smartphone(which he didn’t knew to operate), A LED TV in his room with a DTH connection, A Macbook pro laptop with a very fast internet connection, A driver with a modern SUV vehicle in his service and lots of things.
The kid from the rich background don’t know what dreams are and how we work day and night to turn them into reality. He just know that he has to maintain that standard that makes him class apart from more than half of the population in this world that calls him a rich guy.He know that he don’t have to work because he will be the only successor after his father leaves the business and handover all the office and business work to him.
I have to stop teaching that kid because he shifted to other place and I got busy in my work but that incident when recalled seriously surprises me about the attitude of the people towards there kids. Even a different view of this society in which we live made me uncomfortable seeing that the society is now divided on the basis of the economic status of people or their financial capability of spending money in showing their standard of living. The dedication of guy living in the slum was just awesome and just bow down and salute his hard work.
I have no issues regarding the financial status of the two kids but everyone needs to be dedicated liked the poor kid living in the slum areas.Parents needs to understand that a child needs your love and affection.He is left alone in this brutal world when his parents, the one who bought him in this world don’t support him in living a happy life and to fulfill his dreams.If you are the one start from now because its not late support your child and stand firmly in each and every ups and down he faces in his life. Teach him from your experiences that a human is the best creation by god and god has sent him in this world to work for humanity. He just needs to be happy,work hard and enjoy your life.
Few days before i got my provisional degree from the university which says i am an engineer now. My dad was also present in the college admin building when i collected the degree and other related documents and i could easily see a twinkle in his eyes when he saw my degree. He read the whole contents of it and then patted my back twice in sheer happiness and thanked god.
Four years back when i joined the engineering college , i could easily spot those people who were fixed yet exploring the various aspects of their personality in finding the correct path for pursuing their career. And after four years i can still find those people who are confused that they should pursue engineering or not and some where also there who even don’t have interest in engineering but were forcibly asked to choose engineering as their career because some belong to very poor background and their family has sold or mortgaged their ancestral property so that their child can fulfill their dreams and some people were also there who have opted for engineering because they were still confused what to do so after seeing their verma ji or sharma ji ka beta’s(son’s) salary working in an multinational IT Company they decided that their son/daughter will become a computer engineer .
In India the first question that comes into a parent’s mind or anyone is as usual loog kya kahenge ? and believe me this question has destroyed the life of many people in this country where more than 80 % people take their decisions keeping in mind the reaction of people living in the society. Believe me its slowly becoming a culture in India that people don’t think a bit different and follow the crowd that is headed by someone who himself even don’t know sometimes what to do in his life in the near future.
By the way if i move around and ask people about the various professions that an individual can pursue in their life .People really know only very few professions that can be easily counted on fingers and the most popular is Engineering . If someone is an engineer in my area or mainly in India he is seen like a rockstar and even parent’s think that he will earn more than the richest man living in their society or village. Even his mother think that he will receive more dowry if her son is working in a IT company like Infosys, TCS or Wipro.
But learn to respect your child’s decision because its his life and you would be very happy when he will love his profession in the future.Support your child’s decision because when someone completes his school he is mentally and physically strong to complete his future studies he just need your support either financially or by any means so that he gets the required inner strength to move forward and be a successful human. Teach your child the various lessons of life which are not taught by anyone in this world and various things you have learned by your experiences which is just priceless for him .Let him explore the unexplored pathways by you and follow his dream in his life. It will provide him a great sense of happiness and he will be one of the most happiest person in this world
So finally i am engineer and i really feel on top of the world after completing my graduation. It has been an amazing journey and i have totally enjoyed my college life.But after graduation life is full of enjoyment and happiness as there are no books, no studies,no late night study , no assignments and tutorials and no strict rules regarding studies by our parents. We are free to follow our own rules and enjoy life to the fullest.
But yes after graduation there are a lot of things that sometimes elate you or dishearten you on various specific moments. The most popular of them are your neighbors asking Beta graduation ke baad kya soocha hai ?? (What are your plans after graduation my child ??) This question is not weird but since i have been placed in a company the only question that is annoying me nowadays is when is your joining ?? I don’t know why people are so interested in these things. Apart from this the regular distracting personalities to whom my life is compared you might have heard in hindi movies like sharmaji ka beta, verma ji ka beta…these guys have not left a single stone upturned for adding beautiful distraction elements in my life lol 😛
Apart from this i even found my some friends who want some extra attention !! I am unable to get this thing that friendship doesn’t require any specific acknowledgment that one cares for other but if there is some space for such acknowledgement then its not friendship. You have to be connected but its not like that we have to always say that i trust you , i believe you, you are my friend etc. Its weird because a true friend is the only person that doesn’t need any specific permission for peeping in into your life, he is always available whenever you want and its a bond that is strengthen using amazing additional elements of trust , believe and understanding.
I have been watching TV and surfing the internet these days like i am on a mission to create a world record and ACP Pradyuman’s regular order Daya is darwaze ko todd do is still echoing in my mind. I have been saturated watching TV and internet because all my friends are now in their respective cities ie:they have shifted back to their respective houses back to their hometown and i am left alone. Even my two sisters both are working and both are even not living in my hometown. I have been a busy guy when i was studying engineering because i was so engrossed in my work, family and friends but eventually this sudden emptiness is killing me very badly nowadays.
In the pic my best friends Narayan and Mansi
But you have to move on everytime you feel a bit sad or depressed. Its just a timespan which according to me i need to spend without thinking so much because a bright and a happy future is soon gonna knock my door. After some days i have to enter that corporate world about which i have heard a lot of things. I am about to receive that joining mail which i have been waiting since quite a long time. So i just need to move on and enjoy these vacations because life is like a tender sapling which has to face every storm and bright shiny weather and beautiful aspects of nature that allows him to grow into a strong and firm tree.
So the timetable for the final semester has arrived and its time to start preparing for the examination.In the last semester nobody wishes to do anything whether it’s the sessional files,assignments and any other online or offline work. Its something like that we want to cherish every moment of our life and the last eight semesters we studied and enjoyed with our friends.
But every time i don’t know its matter of coincidence or anything else a very important work creeps in and i am out of the city left unanswered to my bunch of questions regarding why i can’t enjoy ?? I just wanna enjoy with my friends my last days of college but nonetheless work or the circumstances don’t allow me do so.
Whether it was the last month of my school life or now as few days of my college life are left i am out of the city. I really miss my school and every person related to my school life.My school its like a lifeline for me because whenever i am sad or super happy i really remember my school and every memory related to my school sends a tinge of energy and happiness to my spine and turns out the emotional turmoil in me….believe me its just wonderful 😀
Now as few days of my college life are left and i wanna enjoy every bit of it. College has taught a lot to me and has provided me a lot of inner strength to cope up various ups and downs in my life and a lot of memories are also related to it. Its a wonderful thing when time and various circumstances teach u how to live up your life. Time and various circumstances are the best teachers and according to me everything around you teach something whether its moral values or anything else.
But as few wishes are left incomplete there is some small hollow space in my mind. From my school days i had a wish to receive official farewell from the authorities of my academic institutions like my college or school but things didn’t turn up and our batch was unable to receive the what so called official farewell and my wish was not fulfilled. We guys organized post farewell party in my school and what we also call batch party in my college but again things didn’t turn up and i was unable to attend that party . However i am happy but a farewell wish is not that bad as according to me its the official way of saying Good Bye !! to our school or college .
