Every End is a New Beginning

I have done a 10+3 Diploma course in Computer Engineering. So naturally after my 10th standard, I had to leave all my friends from school for my college. In those days, I was not enough mature and was not able to deal with the reality of leaving them. I am one of those people who are very attached to their friends, I am sure everybody is at the age of 16. I was bitter, in despair and unsure about my decision to leave school. With my parents and sister’s help, I managed. That was one of the best decisions I took.

I often wonder now, why was I so reluctant? I make friends easily. It comes naturally to me. So why was I afraid? But I am not going to sit and ponder about it now. I am happy now. I am now pursuing Bachelor’s degree in Computers. And I can gladly announce that leaving my friends from Diploma college was not that difficult after 3 years. I have grown emotionally too with years. It’s my happy ending. 🙂


Preserving Legacy

I went to Nandi Hills today and visited the Lord Bhoga Nandishwara Temple. It was a beautiful temple with a rich history but what got my attention were these wheels.


These are carved stone wheels for a chariot. They are being prepared for Maha Shivratri Festival (a Hindu Festival). They will be cleaned and painted again before it. Parallelly a wooden chariot will be prepared with huge wooden wheels (much bigger than this) on which these wheels will be installed. Eight such wheels will be prepared. One can imagine how big will be the chariot. These wheels are probably hundreds of years old. It impresses me greatly how the temple caretakers have protected the heritage of this temple. Protecting this heritage should be never ending cycle and wheels are a fitting symbol with circles with no ending point.

New Project for 2016

I am writing a blog post after a long time. I mostly can’t decide what I want to write and change my mind after writing for a short while. I am starting the Daily Prompt challenge with this post with hopes to start posting regularly. Today’s prompt is “Write Here, Write Now” and so I am going as much as possible in the present tense.

While writing, I am still feeling hesitant whether I should post it or not. “Would people mind my simple content?” or “Should I write a more sophisticated post?” are some of the questions circling in my mind. But I do have to start sometime and I think if I don’t do it now then I never will. I am sure I will have the same issues the next time too. I am putting my apprehensions aside and clicking the post button. 🙂

Manchow Soup, Chopping Therapy and other simmering things…

This new writer needs a shout out and encouragement.

Diving into My Pensieve

After a long day when all you want to do is put your feet up, cooking a meal feels downright wrong, I know! And this injustice is spread across gender and marital status! Well well gentlemen, have no fear and relax, for I am not here to go into a long rant advising you about how to be a good partner and so on. So, heave a sigh of relief and read on! 🙂

Thankfully, an idea of making and having a soup warms up the cockles of my heart! The day I feel stressed, I indulge in some Chopping therapy. Well, you have heard me right! Chopping, not shopping, therapy. Okay, okay, Shopping is more prefered than chopping anyday! 😉 But constraints of not wanting to brave the the Great Bangalore Post-Office Hours traffic and not disturbing my finances, (yes, in that order of priority) make me opt for the…

The start of something new


Making friends has always been easy for me. But I always had a very small set of close friends. Also they were my weakness. I get attached easily once I lose my inhibitions.

Over the years, life took over the charge and took me all over different places, making me lose my friends. It always gave me epitome of friends, but it also took me away when I made a misconception of having more time.

But in this new college, I have found a friendship which is like new bud of flower, coming with happiness of a bloom after a long time. Life is being gracious because two more years of college are left. I am going to savor it again.

18 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Shy And Introverted

SO I can say I am half outgoing and half introvert.

Thought Catalog

This… this is my soul song, people. This is my Vietnam.

1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectively social.

2. At any given point, you have one (maybe two) best friends who are your entire life. You’re not a “group of friends” person. You can’t keep up with all that.

3. Social gatherings that are supposed to be “rites of passage” like prom and dances and other such typical nonsense is just… not for you. You don’t understand it. You want nothing to do with it.

4. When you do choose to grace a party with your presence, you are the life of it. You’re dancing on the table and doing body shots until 3 a.m.

5. … You then retreat into three days of complete solitude to recover.

6. You go out of your way to avoid people, but when you inevitably have to interact with them, you make it…

Key to happiness!

I wrote my view on expectations in “Happiness**”. This is a different view from mine. She is in ‘opposition’ group and I am in the defender one if you say. 😀

The Rebel

What is the key to happiness?  This is a question I keep asking myself quite often. At different times I come up with different answers. Sometimes I think being content is the key; some other time I think it is to count your blessings. While both are true, there is one more thing that could stand between you and your happiness….that is Expectation.

We have expectations from people close to us; our parents, siblings, partner, friends and even collegues. We have expectations from ourselves. Our expectations are sometimes realistic sometimes not so realistic.  There is a fine line between being realistic and unrealistic. Not many of us understand it.

All of us do expect something or the other from our loved ones. We believe we are entitled to expect from our dear ones. Parents expect their children to look after them in their old age, they expect their children to marry…

Faith Is Infectious

Did anyone ever tell you ‘I know you will do it’? Do you wonder how is it like having someone’s faith in you, especially when you don’t have faith in yourself? It is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world.

I consider myself lucky in this. I have, at crucial points of my life, met people that let me know their faith in my ability. They came into my life at right time to help me get going again. At that time they gave me that boost of confidence and even self-esteem that I needed. Their faith in me was infectious. I did stand up and now I am at better place in my life.

Now when I am again in difficult times, I remember them again. Though they are no longer part of my life but I have their faith. They made me resilient. This time I have one more reason to keep going. Knowing those people was wonderful. I try to dole out faith because I will be happy if I made a difference. I know it is not easy but a little faith will neither cut you open nor rob you out.


Even happiness comes with conditions apply.

Condition 1.) Don’t expect.

We all know it is said ‘Don’t expect and be Happy’ or ‘Less Expectations, More happiness’. Lets take the example of life in village in our country. It is said they are happier than us. Though I can’t really believe that I will get along with it. Also in recent study, people in Denmark are happier that in any other country. From stated reasons, one was, they had less expectation from life.

But I wonder what life will be without expectations. Hard to imagine, May be better but static. I strongly believe in having expectations. Some might say I am finding an excuse for the stated because I have expectations. Maybe yes, because it definitely got me thinking.

I can’t see my life without expectations. So I came to following terms: I can have fewer big expectations or fewer small expectations. I took my pick. You take yours. So guess what will be on the top of my list, I expect this works for me. 😉

We have the power

What is the thing most of us want? Power. Some of us even crave it. Some of us show it with abuse. Others show it with obsession. But we already have it. We have the power to love , power to hate, power to hurt , power to heal. We also have power to teach, power to learn and power to build. We just don’t have the power to nature. No actually we have. Power to destroy it? We definitely are using it.
