THINK ANEW !!!!!!!!

Thoughts and Actions, that's what drives me.
Let me share some of 'em with you. Feel free to join in, argue, blatantly disagree.
Lets open, our hearts and minds and THINK ANEW!!!

A Request..

Friends ... If you don't want to reveal yourself, you have the option of commenting anonymously. So, don't restrain yourself...
Let your thoughts burst out...

Cheeky enough to call me Geeky

"i knew it..u r worldz BIGGEST GEEEEEEEEEEK....."

I couldn't help but put this on. Do I hear you asking why?

Simply because I got this comment to a couple of photos in which there were no books, or anything study related.

I thought I should put it up without even editing it to preserve the authenticity of it.

I guess a picture will truly speak a thousands words in this case.

The second one by the way, was an old computer. Still is a computer but not to all. Even my father says its not a computer anymore but something else. However it still works. :)
The first pic is just a very small part of the room.

If you ask me why I'm saying all this now, there are 2 reasons. One, the comment and the second, by an amazing coincidence just half an hour before I saw the comment I was thinking of how varied my interests were. I'm interested in space, photography, insects, snakes, electronics, robotics, bla, bla ,bla.....

I felt that even after a hundred and thirty posts , there were not many posts about me, so why not? And now you know!!!

And by the way, she is classmate of mine. That gives her another reason too...

I'm Back......

Finally my exams are over (for now ,at least. The next is only a month later!!).

"Why do you always sit alone ?" This is a question I've heard innumerable times but one to which I don't have an exact answer. "Sit" is int he sense of sitting but "in company of". Mostly my classmates ask me this and the otherday too a couple of girls came and asked me the same.

I think one reason is that not many can take my incessant rambling and often weird explanations to stuff (though always scientific, which is yet another reason). i also tend to choose my friesnd carefully and often they are only a handful. Of course I consider everyone as a friend and "almost" all of them are equals to me except a select few. The few good friends are the ones I believe will stand beside me in need and deed. More importantly, I think, they are the only ones who actually bothers listening to me and at least give the words a sliver of thought...

Well, thanks guys for listening.... Just felt like rambling.........

So sorry.....

I'm sorry guys.... It's been a while since my last post and I really can't find time for it. That does not mean I'm going away though. I currently working on a couple of electronic projects that I'm developing and It's taking up most of my time. Got a lot of research to do on that!! By the way, Its just a hobby. :)..
Will give some updates about it soon......

A lot of advices!!!

Here's something that I received by mail from a dear friend of mine ;) . I thought I should publish it not because of the promises of great fortunes that it made(which I do not believe, by the way) but because of the great messages it conveys...

(The comments are mine)

1) Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully

As I've mentioned in many of my posts, do things not for the reward but for the satisfaction of doing it.

2) Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Self explanatory!

3)Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

In short keep limits and keep your wits about!

4) When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

Hmmm..... What can I say?

5) When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.

Look in the eye, you can only do that if you really mean it!!!

6) Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Oops! !Not something that I'm experienced enough to comment on!!

7) Believe in love at first sight.

I leave that choice to you!

8) Don't laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

Dreams are way pointers. They are your destination. If you don't have a destination, where will you travel to?

9) Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

As always, ENJOY LIFE!!

10) When in disagreement, fight fairly. No name calling.

Happens very rarely!

11)Don't judge people by their relatives.

Every man is unique. Your are not who your parents are or your relatives are. They were not your choice to make. But be sure to make the right one when you can. Friends for instance. They show who you are!

12) Talk slowly but think quickly.

Talk slowly so that you can think twice. Think quickly because too much thinking about a simple matter is sure to screw it up.This article by Steve Pavlina talks about thinking and acting quickly

13) When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

A new tip to me too!!Wonder if it works!!

14) Know that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Its the effort and the risk you take that gives the return. The better calculated your risks are, the better your chances!

15) Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

Personally, I never understood why we still do that even though I do know that it was done during the time of the Great Plague.

16)When you lose, don't lose the lesson

Something the winners have mastered and the losers have definitely forgotten
17) Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

18) Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

Now, friendship is something so valuable but we dont recognize it until we lose them. So,enjoy their company while it lasts. And Keep in touch!

19) When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it

Sticking to the wrong path will only make it worse. Better late than never!

20)Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Something that I realized over a very short time, something like over the past few months, A smile can tell you a lot!

21) Spend some time alone.

As important as spending time with friends. You need your attention. Listen to yourself. It cant each you a lot!

A day that taught me the greatest of things!!!

Today was our sports day at school. No, the results are not that good, but it taught me some of the most valuable lessons in life, which I applied today and found to be true.

1) Never change your plans at the last moment. I'm not going to explain the circumstances that taught me this but it is very true. The plan that you made before hand is the best bet you have for peak performance. Primarily because your mind is already tuned to do it as best as you can and secondly because the last minute change that you make cannot guarantee that you would perform any better or even that it is any better a plan than it was before.

2)Do things or compete not for the sake of winning but for the fun of it. Because you love to do.
Here's what happened. We had a 100m sprint, the first competition, and I completely ruined it because I really wanted to win it. The moment I stepped on, my heart started beating faster and the performance just went right down to hell. next, we had the long jump and high jump, both of which went bad, which after reflection, I found was due to the reason stated above. Now came the most awaited of the days events , the 4x100 relay and we had not much of a team at hand.
However, we came in 2nd! the remarkable thing is, following my principle mentioned in a post of mine, I reflected and got the right results. I found out that I was too much concerned with winning that I was completely blind of the reason I was there. Because I love to run. With this realization in mind, I went to the starting line and my heart was not frantic, I felt so happy and then I did what I liked to do, run, run with the wind in the hair, run leaving behind all worries, run to freedom, and thus victory. It paid off!!!

Well, that's it. No wonder it is said, "Failure is the stepping stone to success".
To sum up, Don't make last minute plan-changes.
Do things because like to do it and not because of the rewards.

A Small Lesson from History..

Today, my friend and I were just discussing our old syllabi when something crept up. HISTORY!!
The question is, is more history necessarily better?
My opinion, NO. Its what you learn from the history, and not how much you learn. One may learn a million pages worth of history and imbibe almost nothing from it while another may read just one page and get whole universe of wisdom from it. Which is worth it?

There's this story that is pretty popular around here. There are these twins, one a very prosperous one and the other in utter poverty. One is a very decent and well- mannered guy while the other is drunkard and infamous. Once, they were interviewed about their conditions, both answers started with the same first lines, "Our father was a drunkard." But the next line made all the difference in their lives. The drunkard said,"I learned what he showed me.", while the other said," I learned from what he showed me." Its that small four letter word that made all the difference- "FROM"

I dont think I'll have to explain the story but I would like to extend this to our topic,history.
Its not the history that you learn but what you learn from the at history that makes the difference.

A quiz not so well performed...

Had a quiz today and sadly we didn't hit the mark although we were expecting a good result. (we have no idea what went wrong). Well, all the complains aside, what I wanted to mention was my partner's reactions after the results were announced. He was very disappointed that we did not get on to the next round while I was enjoying the fact that we were the only ones who got the privilege of attending the quiz and getting a wonderful tour of the naval base (that was were the quiz was) an not to forget the wonderful snacks served afterwards. Considering the amount of knowledge gained and the good food, I would never say that it was a loss or a failure but a great success although I'm sure he would not agree with me!!!

Anyway, all I wanted to draw your attention to is the fact that one has to enjoy life, Every moment of it. Learn from the past, enjoy the present, don't be afraid of the future!!

Check these out..

Guys, please check out these poems by me and tell me what you think

Beauty Ignored
One Morning...

One is about the rain and its miseries
The other about success and the need for

"small steps,
simple yet daring."

All criticisms are welcome. I'm all ears to any comment and I would really appreciate some frank opinions. I might even consider some links to good commentors.

The Beauty Ignored

The rain....
It showers from the heavens like nectar, livens up the earth.

Yet, it is very much ignored. A good many of us exclaim and are annoyed when it rains. We , many a times wish that it wouldn't rain. In fact, we find rain a something very unwelcome.

Still, it is in fact one of the essentials of life. A month without at least a shower would be a torture. The heat would be unbearable, the dust in the air at an all time high. Everything dries up and life starts shriveling. Yet, we find it annoying.

But Why?

I'm baffled too. That is why I present it before you. In this case, no number of cooks is "too many " to "spoil the broth". But one conclusion that I reached is that it is the emphasis on "formal" and "dignified" conduct. Don't ask me what is formal or dignified but these seems to be the limiting factors when it comes to enjoying life in its entirety. For example, today, me and my friends were walking along the road and the rain was so heavy that we were drenched in spite of the umbrella. Had we not had our bags with us we would have very gladly closed our umbrellas and would have enjoyed the "getting drenched" part a lot more. Still, along the way after sometime, somehow we started splashing water on each other and we were least bothered about the few onlookers along the road. We had a good time! I believe it is important to enjoy life, to its fullest; because you only get one chance.

So my sincere and humblest request, do give the little drops a thought once in a while.
By the way, please do check out this poem by me, Beauty Ignored

A Sudden Thought..

Today, our English teacher was taking class when she started talking about how we tend to do things just for the sake of it, just to stand with the crowd. All that was well, but what she said next struck me. " We sometimes regret doing them when we think back".

Well, this is the point I want you to think about. Have you ever felt a Deep regret about something and has it affected you?

Regret has the very undesirable effect of getting to your head. It is like a voice inside your head which echos on and on your inabilities, amplifying and bloating them up. It is like lead in a paper boat, a hole in a mighty ship. However mighty the ship be, it would eventually sink if not mended. Likewise, the mind weighed down by regret or its aftereffects would never be able to succeed unless it is completely torn off and burned to ashes.

Personally, my policy is to leave my past behind. Learn from it but not stare at it. Enjoy what can be enjoyed but not sit over those stinging thorns. Take the roses, learn to avoid the sharp tips next time. This way, one learns from bad experience and still doesn't feel slumped by your mistakes (as I have seen many are). That hit on the head, once in a while, is good... to wake you up from the dream to the reality and prompts you to take action. That way, failures will never be failures but reminders of what went wrong. The tests we take are milestones, milestones showing how far we are from our goals. Observe them carefully. If you find a decrease in performance, don't just push yourself harder. Stop. Sit. And analyze. Rash or unthoughtful actions never won the battle. But, the right balance between time spent on thinking and time spent acting is essential, as neither alone can do anything.

And here I stop , to act, and to leave you to think the rest...
Let me know your experiences and what you think about what I just expressed...
Any related comments are welcome. Also, I wanted to let everyone that, If you feel the need, feel free to express yourself anonymously ( This is especially to my "real life" friends). No hard feelings towards any commentators.....

A Confession

I confess..
I've been a bit greedy.

This coupled with some recent experiences urges me to make this post.

I've told a couple of people, friends and fellow bloggers, don't look for the rewards. Doing what you like is a reward in itself. Now, I can show you why!!!

Some advertising sites give incentives to make blog posts, like Adgitise. Well, I really wanted to upgrade a couple of things and was trying to find away to do so. So in a bid to make some extra cash, for a week or 2 I had posted daily, but now on looking back, I realise that some of those posts were not so powerful and were there just for being posted. This of course is not an acceptable scenario. So, I've decides to cut short the number of posts and make them more substantial.
In short, I'm going to sacrifice posting frequency for quality... (hopefully).
And this of course, is just one example out of many.

So basically, as far as I've observed, looking only for the reward has brought more downfalls than good. Keeping that balance between "Keeping your eyes on the ball" and "playing it for the fun of it" seems to be the definite and simple formula for success.
