Price of Success

The other day we had this wonderful discussion during our English class about the
"Price Of Success" and surprisingly a lot of points came up.

To me ,success should not dictate the means or the end but only the goal.It should never coerce you to deviate from your moral, ideals and virtues and such a success is not worth achieving.I feel that the reason we hear that many are not successful can be attributed to two factors
1)They do not have a fixed,exact goal
Unless you have a target to achieve you can never complete a mission.Many do not have that distinct,steady target to aim for and thus they would never succeed in getting it simply because it does not exist.
2)What is success????
Success should not be defined by others but by your level of satisfaction.Many tend to measure success by what people think about you,but rather success is how satisfied you are with your current position.It is indeed the thirst for more that drives people to betterment.But beware,don't turn into a maniac!

Oh ya..........something a bit different......nowadays ,our English classes are turning into something more than just that old boring class.Now its lively with all kinds of discussions and ideas.Its fun,in short.

People are just not content with what they get........
Today my friends and I went for a quiz and the team my friends formed got on stage .Well , the performance could have been better but still they did get on.Well.they didn't get on any further(sadly) and surprising only the first three positions were awarded,not even a consolation prize .Later on they were grumbling about the same and I was thinking
" At least they were lucky enough to get on stage while the rest of us could only watch"
(I'm not saying they were not right)

On second thoughts however,isn't the same unbeaten curiosity and need that make us live on and be inventors and discoverers .As they say

Necessity is the mother of Invention

Really mad at someone...........

Here it goes......
Another boy and I were assinged to do a project for an erxhibiton and I had been trying to get him to be serious for the past few days and now without any info he has submitted some topic to our teacher and that too without een consulting with me.In fact ,I had already disapproved the idea and...............I simply cant believe that he did so :0

Shows how frustrating it could sometimes get when working with some people!!!!!!!!!!

Little joys.........

Life ,it seems,is not made of major events but of those little and numerous funny,naughty,silly and hilarious moments of or life :0

When I changed schools,I thought I would be relinquished of my annoying friends who used to irritate me for fun.But ,I must confess that I had never been really irritated by them (OK,maybe little,but not much :-))

But ,I just found out that you find people of certain personalities almost everywhere you go!!!

Really,I was surprised to find out that some of my classmates had the uncanny ability to irritate and disturb me just like my old classmates.Well,I am thankful for one thing for certain,they don't do so during the class because that would be disastrous.I guess,if any of you are reading this,the ones who are the protagonists would know who I'm talking about ;)

Well,even though I don't like being disturbed or irritated,I do confess that the heavier facts of life are lightened up by humor and fun and it is easier to live life better.For this I thank you,my friends................

A followup.........

My previous post was in great time :)
Today,my English teacher saw me reading the book upside down and asked me why I was doing so.I asked "Why not!".She really did not give me an answer :) but said that I ought not do so!
I still dont' feel any need tot read in any particular way other than for the fact that when upside down ,my reading speed is only 75 of otherwise :0

Crazier than ever?????

If after reading the rest of my posts doesn't make some of you feel that I'm crazy this one probably will at least the people who know me thought so :)

Anyone likes to read books upside down?If there is then I have freinds with similar likes
So why do I do it?The question I have faced many a times but I have only one reason to satify their inquisitiveness

What difference does it make.Language is simply a set of symbols and it doesn't matter how you hold it,you just have to be able to read it and understand the messae that is being conveyed.RIGHT?
(Just to clarify,I CAN read normally :-)

Amazing results!!!!!!

Here is the result of the Personality Test I took at Facebook
I was absolutely amazed at how almost 95% of it ringed true........So I'm posting it here :)

You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic.

Here's my Personality Defect Test result.....but I'll need others help to check whether this is indeed true!!!!!!

You are a complete MACHINE. You were wired to be rational and logical, focusing on objectivity and rejecting emotions. You are humble and don't tend to think about your own emotions as much as whether or not things make sense and are just. Even if you had hundreds of billions of dollars, you wouldn't give it away or spend it frivolously..You are one of those super-logical people.

Insects and creatures...............

Something I still don't understand is why people are so very afraid of insects and other "Dangerous Creatures" like bugs ,spiders.........

In fact, it is so difficult to prove to people that handling most creatures isn't fatal as long as you don't hurt them.......Isn't that so even with people???But it is indeed possible to do that - by example........
At my old school,i had convinced most people that i wont change to anybody's wish unless I feel to do so and of course,I whole-heartedly welcome all criticism :)

(thank the auto-save.........but its soooooo difficult to get the stream of thoughts back once lost :()

Oh ya........It was this one particular incident that prompted me to write this post....The fact that its monsoon here and that our class is surrounded by much plants means that there are lots of caterpillars around......In fact ,the second day itself ,I was observing and handling one and there was only one or two it the class and he made a commotion of it.Feeling that revealing y CRAZINESS so early was not good ,I quietly suppressed.But then the very next day,one of those crawled along the window during a class and the girls and even the boys around there started screaming (Poor fellow,I wonder what it would have felt!!!!!).The problem was solved when our teacher got something to flick the poor thing outside.....

But the root cause still remains!!!!!!!! Most are afraid of most insects,many even of the beautiful damsel of the insect world ,the butterfly.Don't believe me?

Next time notice if someone screams when one lands on them.(does not affect all).
I believe that the reason is due to the lack of info and the fear that all insects are harmful which stems from this ignorance.

Hope people are more aware of what is safe to do and handle so that they will do so and desist from unnecessarily killing them .........Keep the world PRISTINE........

An appology

Sorry friends....
Classes has started and i'm not getting much time...........
But you can rest assured that i would continue to post as much as i can and surely at least once every week or more ( hopefully)

Hope you understand and bears with me.............................

A universe in its own.....

Even though I read quite a lot,until today I had not realized the amazing power of reading
The class was so noisy that I had almost felt like screaming and running out.Fortunately,that did not happen :).With around 40boys and girls playing in the class,it felt like listening to a airplane engine at close range or standing near a launching rocket would have been much quieter.Then I was lucky enough to get hold of one of our English text books and then ,I started reading some story about how Einstein, was planning to quit school and how he was almost expelled before he forged a medical report to quit school and some reference about his view about education (to which I totally agree with).

But I did not feel the time passing neither was I bothered by the racket my classmates were making.It was about three-forth along the way that I realized that I was now confined to an entire universe of my own,a universe created by the author of the prose,inhabited by only the few characters of the narration.

A truly magical world.........

An example why one should THINK

My classes at my new school started and I have a few friends over there that I knew from before.One is my senior and we are good friends.However,when I met him at school , he mentioned that since he was a senior he would not be so friendly JUST because his classmates were not so to their juniors.

This is exactly why I prefer think for myself and encourage everyone to do so.Why go with the flow if you don't agree with it.Why not make the change and make the new path as mentioned here

I believe that ,had he thought about what he had to do instead of following his classmates,he would have had an easier life and if everyone followed the lead the school would have been friendlier.

Hope things turn out better :) ...........

To school!!!!!!!!

To my new school and new friends.It was a rare chance and good one to make new friends.But the hardest part upon reaching the new class is to choose your friends.Because,as the Malayalam saying goes
"ചങ്ങാതി നന്നായാല്‍ കണ്ണാടി വേണ്ട"
If your friend is good,there is no need for a mirror
How true indeed and the friends you make on the first day ,if you ask me,is very important because others would know you by the company you keep.So,its best to make a good impression from the beginning ,right?

Hope everyone gets great friends................

Result of expression

Writing this blog has made me think much better,and at higher level.It also prompts me to sort my thoughts better and think clearer and more often...............Thank you

The forgotten smile

Have you ever noticed children playing with their ever present smile and unwavering happiness?Their sweet smiles and sweeter merry?

So where did that smile that we all once wore gone now?
Buried within the depths of our hearts,that fire still exists as splinter,I believe.

But , now and then ,I do see a man or a woman ,here or there, with that sweet smile along the walks of life.Such a sighting prompted me to write this and think about the same.I also have noticed that such people keep the people around them at a much more elevated level than others.Their constant smiles helps others to relive their tensions and anxieties,have an open outlook ,ENJOY LIFE.

Isn't that what is important?

I wonder what their secret is ....................

Lets all hope to smile like them........

Dont just live LIFE ,ENJOY it

A little chirping bird........

The other day ,I joined Twitter just to see what it was all about and was amazed at the amount of activity going on.They even encourage you to tweet on your way from mobile!!!!
What intrigues me is why people would want to communicate in such a weird wonder social networking sites are so popular.
But I must confess,the people out there were extremely friendly and most would follow you back if you follow them.I say so from experience because,in about 10 minutes after follow a couple of new members ,I got about 10 to 20 follows!!!!!!!!
Now that's communication :)

Missing something?

A comment by MeiYah set me thinking....

Do we really know the value of the things we have?
At first ,almost all of us would say,

"Of course ,I know the things that I own"

and some may even go as far as to say

"I'm grateful for them too"

But upon pondering,Most of would probably have to change that (of course,he ones who actually do reveal it would be only be a few)but in our minds we would.............

In fact,we really almost never realize the value of something or for that matter even someone until we actually miss them.........when we are no longer enjoy its comfort,company or convenience...........

So enjoy life.........

Rain is so much fun

Rain is so much fun to play in!!!!
You wouldn't know the ecstasy until u actually do it
But no!!!!!!

"You'll get a cold !!!!!"
"Don't play in the rain"
"Get back in here this instant"

and so goes the endless list of commands
True .....its fun only til you get a cold or fever so take precaution to dry yourslf as soon as your inside but aside that everything is fun and games!!!!!!

Try it sometime

As Agatha Christie (1890-1976) said

One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.

How true !!!!!!!!
and remember

Childhood comes only once dont forget to be naughty!!!!!!!!

A wonderful poem

One of the best poems I have ever read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would say , this is an almost perfect poem.It lists a lot of qualities that are seeemingly simple and yet so hard to follow but still if followed would make you an infinitely better human

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,

Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

World Environment Day

The world environment day has just passed us,but i wonder how many really thought about our Mother EARTH even once during those 24h?

Hey....We are not fooling around,we have a life to live,jobs to do,people to think about and money to make.When are we going to get time to think about some earth ?????

Check out these videos

Well ,if we do soon then ,we wouldn't have have a life to live or jobs to do or people to think about or money to make.In fact you would be left with nothing because you would cease to exist.

So what can we do to help?
Do as the heart with you tell you.But remember ,you have only one home,all of us,The Earth.
There are millions of stars and planets out there but none would accommodate us let alone suffer as much.So do your bit to protect the great treasure form being irrecoverably lost.
I would only bore you with any advice at saving the planet because everything worth saying has already being said a hundred times to each one of us

TO ACTION!!!!!!!!!!!

Development-a little to fast?

Yesterday,I just went around ernakulam and nearby places and was awestruck with the amount of development going right around me!!!!
What with all the new malls ,shopping complexes and business centers,all being 'dumped' into this small city.How would we manage the traffic ? the people? the waste produced?

No wonder the world is getting more and more chaotic by the minute.Wars all around you,People being murdered for no apparent reason at all,school children going out on shootouts and everybody just looking around with no real answer to any of these problems!!!!

Not that I'm against development.I embrace it with all my heart BUT shouldn't we concern ourselves more with the peripheral infrastructure too.

Higher efficiency ,
Better management,
Greater productivity.........????????


Isn't it amusing that people who care about you know somehow that you are in need of help when you are in need of help no matter how far they are.Indeed!

I wonder how? NO idea ,but It DOES work :)

A beautiful site

I was just browsing today and came across this beautiful site

The site features some very beautiful pictures of some plants and animals that the author observed and a small description of the creature.

What attracted me the most is the authors eye for observation and beauty and her curiosity .
Only if everyone were as active and curious then the world would have been a better place.

Personal blogs????????????????//

I wonder why people would be interested in someone else's private day to day life when they have their own life to live.

I have seen quite a few personal blogs.....with lots of followers.But don't we have enough things in our life lives to worry about or enjoy to go looking for others lives.........

I WONDER..............

An open mind

I felt like writing this because I have been fighting with someone over how I should be doing a part of my project..........

How important is it to have an open mind?
If you ask me ,I would say pretty important.


It is only with a wide open mind that you can take in new thoughts.As someone famous said ( I dont remember who)..........."You can only fill an empty cup."or in other words......"You can only enter a room with open doors" (Of course, there are other ways).So ,if you keep your mind closed how would new ideas be able to enter or emerge?

Keep your mind open,to all things,filter it out to what you feel is right and you only as much.I mentioned 'what you feel is right' because thinking for yourself is another part of opening your mind.In our present educational system,we are not making a "Thinking Population" rather a "Taking Population".We students are made to gulp down loads of texbooks ;) and put it down on an 'exam' paper.

What do we gain from it ?

For most people,this means that the science you study today will be history tomorrow ;)
so what are we doing wrong?

I would blame more of it on our teachers and parents than on our curriculum. Even when textbooks prescribe practical or activity based learning , in this fast paced and 'competitive' world of ours ,everyone is more interested in completing the portins no matter how and somehow get "very high marks",no matter the cost,even at the cost of the childs future.
The child may get the "very high marks" the others are expecting of him but the question to be raised is

"Did HE gain anything susbtantial OTHER than the high marks?"

With that thought I leave you...........

Remember ,each one of us have to change before wecan change the society

Time is RELATIVE!!!!!!

Its amazing how long you can work on a project still not know the hours and days pass away and still keep on working on it IF you love what you are doing.

For the past 2 months i've been working on ONE small but FRUSTRATING project.As soon as i solve one problem another crops up and stops me in my tracks but finally its development is gaining momentum.Finally its almost finished.Maybe a week or 2 will do the job.

So ,whats the big project?

Just two targets

  1. Open a door when someone stands on front of it
  2. Close the door after everyone inside the room exits
Sounds simple! I too thought so until i started the work and i'm still to complete the first target but now it is within sight,finally.

Previously , I used a smaller but surprisingly powerful geared motor.

Kinda crude right ?Ya,I know,but one day got a much bigger motor and now i'm using that one and the fixture is much better.........(will post a picture later)

Will update when i've completed it
