My Teachers...


Just a couple of hours back, someone came down to argue with me that teachers especially maths teachers are crazy…degree of craziness might vary. Well this chap is my Maths teacher himself. I know I argue a lot and it makes no sense writing it all down, but there was stuff I wanna write…

There are things I donot stand and one of the main ones are – my teachers. I never willingly or knowingly have insulted my teacher. Atleast tried my very best to restrain myself which wasn’t hard as its very rarely that I have been angry on a teacher.

The reason being – my teachers / our teachers are so sweet…Just imagine that a person leaves his / her family behind and bees your guardian for 7 – 8 hours a day. Its their knowledge that they share with you. Honestly, it wont matter them if you know Newton’s laws or not, yet they care for you.

They treat you like their own children, and whenever you are upset, they do know it.

They know when you feel what…and it’s scaringly true that they can look inside your brains as well. Trust me, I have tried it.

Moreover, not just time and knowledge, they devote themselves too. Earlier I used to think all a teacher needs to do is teach and check papers but trust me its a lot more than just this much. They do a lot more things than just what we see.

Also, they do have their own personal lives to see to…

One more thing – aren’t the teachers devoting their time and life to make life and the world better. They educate the young souls of the world and make them better indivisuals and indirectly make the world better each day.

Now if someone is so sweet, how can I ever say something bad about them? Tell me??...So I even hate those who speak bad about teachers and I say and I shall always do that all my teachers are fantastic. They may not be very good as teachers for there is lack of communication between them and the students but they definitely are very very very very very very very good human beings and I love and respect them all regardless of all the facts!!


A very sweet person quoted it to me (us) recently that ‘change is the only thing permanent however we still resist it’…aint that true?? Its so simple and yet so deep! This is the most obvious thing of life except the fact that we shall all die one day.

Now about this – life changes as objectives change. Just the other day I was arguing with someone that its actually people in our lives who change our life or say make it the way it is. The person I argued with kept saying that no its time…perceptions change with time and then life changes…

However, I shall still say what I did to him – as a junior school kid, life is so different. We are under parental protection and no matter whatever the problem is or however big it may seem to us, our parents and elder siblings are there for us always. Then in class 9 – 10, again things are different. We are moulded in a way to face something national level. We learn new things and learn to think on that level…

Then Class 11 – 12, life changes even further. I donno about others but the most drastic change in my life came when I came to class 11 (and mind you I am still there)…so much to study…just study and also live life as this is the age…

But if you can clearly see, life changed in these stages because of addition of new people. In class 9 – 10, we get new teachers who motivate us. Our relatives, family and friends all have their expectations. Its that which changes us. Further in class 11, we meet even more new teachers who have a completely different view of education and life and so with them we further change.

If you see clearly…aint it the people who affect you? We do things because our friends like those… so friends affect us.

I think getting into a college, getting a job and getting married are the 3 stages where life changes drastically. Even here because new people meet us.

When we enter a new college / school, we make so many friends, who affect us. When we get a job, again a whole new world comes to contact…and when we get married, I like to put it that the no. of people we know, doubles. Each relation doubles as one of ours and one of our spouse…

Anyways, back to the topic…people shall never stop coming into our life – some good, some okie, some bad…but all of them will have drastic effect on us…the change is therefore constant but being a human, I know that I shall never be able to accept it.

Emotions


Well while talking to my friend - Shinjan (Tannu), I thought of something...and trust me the thought is just too sweet! And the thought is - that you don’t really need to be a poet or for that matter of fact even an author, for writing a poem or prose...All you truely need is the feeling - if you can feel it...you can definitely pen it down!

So the core of the discussion is that feelings can sometimes be so strong that you don’t even realize that you have gone far with them without even knowing and trust me this is the best thing I love about feeling anything!

I feel indeed I think with my heart only…whatever’s there in my heart comes on my face or through my mouth…someone told that its not good to feel so much…and we must all think but little bit only. But you see I don’t agree to this at all!

I mean I agree sometimes taking something to the heart can be dreadful and you feel so bad…and tears fall but you see those tears are also so special… If those tears weren’t in my eyes…possibly I wont ever be able to measure the extend of happiness to its true sense! It is honestly because that we feel bad that we can measure the happiness and live it to its fullest… and trust me – try that! It works… When we cry, all sadness goes outta your heart and all that is left behind is the beautiful memories which are only yours and no one can take them from you… when we cry, we aren’t being weak, we are just purifying memories!!!

Emotions are so sweet! I read somewhere –

“love someone and see how beautiful the world is… be loved by someone and see how wonderful things are!”

And this is really true…there is nothing better than liking someone – try it…you are owner of your own will and so you can like anyone… I like atleast 50 – 100 people in this world. More than half of them don’t even know me (but I like them cause I know they are good people) but you see by merely liking them things have changed drastically…

Say is you are a Harry Potter fan…you tend to celebrate 31 July…it gives you one more day to celebrate…to be happy on and loads more…so when you like someone, you tend to share all their happiness to the equal amount but your tears get shared and lesser…

Well…anyways, all I wanna say is that next time you think you wanna feel something go ahead… and if you are feeling something…take a pen and do whatever you can with it – write an article, blog entry, poem or maybe just an abstract…and I can bet it will be the most beautiful thing you would have ever seen… And in case you don’t feel it today…then see anyone around you whom you meet often – friends, relatives, aunts, uncles, teachers…or anyone and observe them… how they are so different and eventually see that they are good people… you can this way make a new frnd almost each day!

So -> stop thinking…and start feeling!!

Ps : I love you


Okie I know this is title of a book but its so sweet that I cant help writing this as a title of one of my blogs...okie the blog is not about the book but about ofcourse .."that thing called 'love'.."

I just read a book called 'Dear John' by Nicholas Spark and that book taught me something really magical...

Not going much about that book but only the necessary things that while I was reading the book, alot things too happened in my life. There is a person who means alot to me...a friend for whom I can do anything but I guess I am not that special to him...so one day he said cause I get miserable myself sometimes therefore I make things difficult for people around me too... I know he meant all good and he is correct - I dont deny that but at that moment what all matter was - I asked him "Do I make life miserable to you too?" and he didnt say yes but ofcourse I knew the answer...

I thought alot about it - duh! I think too many things...and well the answer was that "cause it is in giving not in taking" ... I shall always be by him and I know he is there for me - my really sweet friend...

so all I should say is that you can love / like anyone in the world..love isnt just physical...adoration can also be love! indeed it is...

Kishore Kumar - the wonder voice


Well I was just listening to one song by Kishore da - rim jhim gire sawan; when I couldnt help thinkin for a 100th time that Kishore Kumar is a rockstar...

I heard someone once quote that singing is 'something done with the ease with which we breathe...' and a good singer is the one who can sing with that ease...and trust me whenever I listen to Kishore Kumar's song...I cant help thinking what great singer he is...

He truely has a golden voice and the way he can sing the most difficult of things with great ease is what makes him just a heart throb.


He has sung all types of songs possible - love duets, sad solo, rock and roll, happy and all kinds you can imagine and trust me it is next to impossible (to the side away from possible) to find faults in his singing... its ust flawless...

Some of my favourites are by Kishore Kumar like I said 'rimjhim gire Sawan' and whenever I listen to it...there cant be a better pleasure to my ears ever again! I know I keep on saying that he is a marvel but I cant help saying so. Its really unfortunate that we dont have such a person with us today but trust me he shall never truely die... he will always live to rule the hearts of million with his golden voice...

Towards the end, trying not to bore you all much bt seriously I am out of words when I need to speak about him. I find myself blessed to have ever heard his songs and once again - he rocks!

Concluding with some of his great lines -
chalte chale...
mere ye geet yaad rakhna
kabhie alvida na kehna...
kabhie alvida na kehna...!!

Introduction


Well, this is probably the most special thing - special to me and closest to my heart; that I will be writing on the blog. Here I will write about all the amazing people I come across in my life...

Firstly, see I believe we must all appreciate whatever we can...I mean life's short...and we must see if there is a good deed being done, never think twice...bump into it and help in all ways you can and if you see someone else doing a deed...never think even once...go and tell him / her how you appreciate it...

"when you take hours to enjoy something, give a few minutes to few words of thnks!"

From the day I heard / read this quote, I follow it... whenever I think I need to say something to anyone...I just go and tell it...

In the process, there are many things that I come across and trust me today I will never accept that the world is bad or even anywhere near to bad...because I know so many people who are so good at heart that they make this Earth a better place to live in by their mere existance...aint this really good? arent these people real sweethearts?? And so whatever good or bad...I want the world to know them...the people I treasure...

I also want to say this that these people - I will remember them throughout my life...no matter where I am, how I am or what I am...they shall always be so dear and special to me and I will always pray that they are happy! I just hop they be blessed always...we maynt talk always...bt I want them to know that I CARE!

Writes of what to write and what not to write

Recently reading a lot of emails (because that is what I do), I realized that there is no correct or incorrect way to perform written com...
