My working style is bit different than others. When I work I really work and when I spend some time with someone I really do spend it a great way (I feel it that way, initially many felt that I am arrogant : D ). But one thing I know about myself is I am not a group activity guy and the moment I can sneak out I do that and get into something I love. I don’t mean that I don’t participate in group activities, I just see that if my role is not big enough and if I sneak out people don’t notice I just sneak out instead of being spectator. When I participate I do it well and try to make it really fun and memorable for all.
Whole Indian community realized this nature lately and gave me much freedom when I am with them in parties and events. They let me sit alone, enjoy my reading and do some personal things and let me be in crowd, without complaining and feeling bad. Lately they understood how I work and behave, I love every single community member here for that.
Often I politely take an excuse from many events, on the same time you cannot say no to few events and people. Few friend planned for a WATER RAFTING event, there was no question that I will not be a part of it. I have always been a crazy for adventures. Did too many things in past and still looking great partner for few great things.
We were in an awesome bus early on Sunday morning, yes the AC is turned on. An old friend reserved a window seat for me. I sat and the journey started, I love seeing nature, feels like I belong to them, watching running trees and mountains is my love since I am young. Now it’s just added that I used a Bluetooth and listen to something that is so in line with nature.
As the bus set on express and started running over 120KmPH, friends started their events and making noise. Antakshiri ( A game to sing songs) started and I felt isolated as I neither know films nor listen to songs. Slowly I focused my eyes on beautiful outside, enjoyed every bit of second and thanked god for all I have in life.
After a while took my phone and started moderating InI comments. When I reached the end I saw a comment with an unusual website address. I dropped by and amazed, read it for next one and half hour. Read many articles of that. ( here is the comment)
Just felt that these and other highly talented chaps migrated to other countries in the search of excellence and recognition have great stories to inspire the nation. If you read the comments on the post about GATE 2014 changes you will realize how the nation of millions of students is hungry for great inspiration and direction.
I was looking outside the window and was thinking how the entertainment industry, TV industry and sports industry is cheating millions of people to shut their dreams. The real Indian Idols are the ones who slogged their asses day and night for learning things that contribute to the development of nation and humanity.
The moment a student in a position to think about his life a new even is started on the name of IPL, 20~20 matches, Indian Idol, Carorpati series, new movie releases and all messy news about politics, killing people, rapes, communal violence and all non sense stuff.
With all these distractions an ordinary student lose his dream and the only strong survivors go to IITs. People finally regret their lives and then to hide that they submit their lives to the mercy of TV boxes and comedians.
I looked at lush green mountain and strongly felt that there is a huge need for an alternative media that promotes good and the real Idols of the nation, the Idols who have guts and tons of hard work behind their short lives. The Idols that were and are standing in front rows of development of humanity. I remembered the whole book and recommend you all too, The IITians: the story of a remarkable Indian institution and how its alumni are reshaping the world by Sandipan Deb to realize what these people contributed and how they are real poster boys.
As I was listening to some of my beautiful Jazz collection and looking at the beautiful nature, realized that how I love anything classy right from music, art, design, literature, poetry, dance and sports. On the same time I cannot submit my life to these. These are for entertainment and my life have purpose than just being entertained or be an entertainer. I have to contribute to the life its progress and sustenance the best possible way.
We all attracted to easy things in life on the same time no great thing is easy to achieve. Listening music is easy, watching TV is super easy, movies, sports are easy too and we are all attracted : ) and media companies took advantage of this reality and helped many lose their dreams even without realizing what’s wrong with them. Whereas reading a book is difficult, working out is difficult, mastering a sport is hard, even singing well is difficult. But you want to realize dream you got to pass through it.
I was thinking all these my friend shook me and told all others wants you to introduce yourself, and told all remember every word in his BHASHAN (speech ) I said well ….
I was excellent (I felt that)on raft, swimming and a bit of rebel on all fronts. Took few of friends for AVT rides, We enjoyed every bit of an awesome Sunday.
I came back home listening some verses of Quraan that reminded me of God’s creation are for humans, but not enslave humans to the creations and lose focus in life. The bus was giggling with jocks or santa banta, facebook and other company related jocks. As we passed an hour drive I fell asleep enjoying the road nature and words of god. In between, someone cracked a jock on me too and I remembered one too and shared.
too long a post, but was needed to share the inner feeling. Preparing for anything big is not easy, on same time anything big is not easy. Always remember in the world of distraction you have a choice to make for your life, where do you want to be when you are on death bed.
I got down the bus and was walking to home with a new life new aim new direction. I could not hold myself sharing all these with you. I just call you all to do something instead of just giving away your dream to entertainment and entertainers.
