1 year Experienced not just in IT

I recently completed my one year as a working professional in Accenture. For many of us its the time for celebration and I celebrated too. But deep inside my heart I was analysing about the things I learnt in past one year. Experience is not just technical ,it teaches one to live, enjoy and cope up with bad experiences.  

Above the Clouds Below the Sky

My desire to write on the spot was at least fulfilled ,no matter what resources I had to use .I am using a air sickness bag to write upon because when I demanded for rough paper ,the air hostess handed me a tissue paper. It feels great to have world of clouds below .It’s the purest form of white colour which I had came across, clouds are like islands below me.
When the pilot was trying to attain the height, it was sensational to cut through the clouds. Adding to it was the joy of writing at the moment and that too after such a long time. The pressure of performing well had taken over me which resulted in loosing of self. Travelling to home via flight was one of my dreams come true and which is inspiring me to go for my other dreams. I believe that i will enjoy my vacation in best possible way. It would be great to meet Vaibhav and Sarvagya after so much time. The book i was reading i.e. When Everything Changes, Change Everything turned out to be quite good for me. I could say that I handled one of the biggest changes of my life in best possible way. The thought which haunted me most of the time was of going away from home. The lesson I learned from the book was thrown to me many times but the way in which this book presented the idea was quite convincing. It also convinced the idea that our experience of present is all dependent on our way of perceiving it and the past data to which we are relating our present. I just accepted that change is the part of life without which life will not be sustainable, adaptable and functional. Everything changes for something better and it was me who brought this change by choosing the right things and taking right decisions.
Well at present I am enjoying the flight and it feels like the plane is standing still. I have to wrap up my blog now as I was writing this on air sickness bag. There were many thoughts which demanded words but I was out of bag and I didn’t want to steal another one from my fellow passenger. But the last thing I would like to say is “ITS ALL GOOD”.

Movie Review-Love Aaj Kal

It was Friendship’s Day and I wanted to be with friends, so whats good than a movie…damn..there I was mistaken especially when I considered a Bollywood movie . I had such high hopes of Love Aaj Kal. Being an Imtiaz Ali flick, the expectations were high. ‘Jab we met’, even ‘Socha na tha’ were awesome love stories.

Even though like every one said ‘Jab we met’ was exceptional and I too agree with it. I missed  Kareena’s Geet character from ‘Jab we met’ and the flow of story of the film. All I saw was Saif Ali Khan who according to some reports used Botox in order to look younger when acting opposite 24-year-old Deepika Padukone.

The love stories of “today” (aaj) and “yesterday”(kal)  goes parallel . Rishi Kapoor narrates his love story and takes us in the era where ‘Veer‘ (Rishi) is in deep love with ‘Harleen‘ and is happy just having a glimpse of her face and wishes that she should her life partner in all his lives. Saif Ali Khan plays the role of  “Veer” (Young Rishi Kapoor). The punjabi kudi (Harleen) who played the role of Rishi Kapoor’s love of life, isn’t a Punjabi kudi at all. She’s a 19-year-old Brazilian model ” Giselle Monteiro” who couldn’t speak Hindi or dance but still a part of Hindi movie :P . At one point of movie she brought a hot glass of black tea under her dupatta to give to “Veer” who just stood below her house . Harleen’s family was shown as a typical 1950 Indian family which is against love marriage. But in the end Veer and Harleen easily run away and settle downs in London. These incidents made me wanted  to be born in the 1950s. Almost as though my life would be so much more simple and beautiful if it could actually be in sepia.

In parallel the present goes with Jai (Saif) & Meera (Deepika) as modern day couple in London, who likes to lead a practical life to go along with the flow of life. And the scene where Deepika is marrying to another guy and Saif is watching just touched me a bit.But in the end they  realize that love cannot be transformed and tampered so they end up living a happy life together.

Overall this isn’t a bad film at all. It’s just that I’d come to building some solid expectations from Imitiaz Ali. I came out of the theater and was  just not  fuzzy enough but at some  point in the movie  I thought of getting my ticket money back from the theater owner.

A week full of hangouts at natural sceneries

At last after all the “havans” and “puja path” aka sacred rituals, Rain God is finally happy with Udaipurites and the two main lakes  viz  Lake Pichola and Fateh sagar are covered with water :).

Last week was good for me and I traveled a lot to take a look of various water reservoirs  around the city. The energy of flowing water fascinated me  a lot and i drenched my self at every opportunity.

Below is the rough plan of all the water reservoirs of Udaipur:

Me v/s Myself

Yup u gussed it right !! its about the fight which all of us experience  inside us . Most of the times we came across things and occasions where we find that we are not one entity , we are two individual  one with  mind and other with heart. Its the position where we find our self in a dilemma but we always  know one thing that the decision or the act  which is right and totally justified will come across  atleast once inour mind and heart. It depends on us that we listen to that voice of inner soul which is 100% correct and true.

Its really hard to control our senses as these senses compel us to give false justification for the situation.  We are tempted to follow the incorrect path for which we regret later. One  who can control his senses becomes THE ONE. Thats why in Indian mythology there are great ” sadhus and sants” (yogis) who can control their senses and can live a satisfied life with complete devotion to the god. These are the persons who can hear their inner voice and can experience “moksh” (inner peace of mind).

I wish to hear the voice of my inner soul every time i come across some dilemma or confusion so that  i won’t have to regret later. The first step i should take is to believe that eveything that happens is  because of the will of god.

I can only HOPE…….The torch of life which never dies out     ||||||||[<

South Africa out of world cup- efforts in vain

I was disheartened by the victory of Pakistan which resulted in the defeat of most deserving team to win world cup 20-20 2009 i.e South Africa. Its the magic of 20-20 which can make any team champion. SA worked hard to reach semifinals and did’nt lost any matches yet it lost the most important one. South Africa is the team which never reached the finals of any of the big tournaments ever, it may be the luck which kept away the team from winning auspicious tournaments.
Pakistan reached the finals again and this time they are hoping to win as earlier they lost the final of T-20 world cup to India.The Pakistani team really performed well and Shahid Afridi played a match winning innings by scoring 52 runs(32 balls) and taking 2 wickets. The South African bowlers just gave 29 runs in last 5 overs restricting Pakistan at 149 runs which is a commendable effort but didn’t got support with bat as their top order failed. Jack Kallis was the one who survived and played sensibly the leg spin of Shahid Afridi. Another winning performance was given by Umar Gul ,the pace bowler , he kept on targeting the block hole and made certainly impossible for SA players to score runs. JP Duminy, AB Devilliers , Alibie Morkel and Greame Smith totally failed at this important match. The South African team and fans including me :P are really disappointed and hoping that second favourite team Sri Lanka reaches final by defeating West Indies. The team which can refrain Pakistan from winning T-20 world cup 2009 is Sri Lanka as the team has 3 M in its armour i.e Murali,Mendis & Malinga ofcourse the warrior Sanath Jayasuriya.
Lets hope SL wins the world cup this time.
