I Jumped Out Of A Crazy Roller Coaster And Still Alive :D

This is truly an awesome day. After a long time I met a great friend on a cup of coffee. The first question he asked me was why are u still here?? I was like what?? I am meeting you after a long time and you ask me why am I here? He said yes because you have a hell lot better to do in other place and I am sure you do rock there. This put me seriously back on to I n I.

I started riding a crazy rollercoaster of personal life and that gave me really tough time for last couple of months. As you all know time heals everything and you need to give time for things to settle and get back. But here i did a little trick instead of being depressed because life started giving lemons I made lemonade of it and enjoying every sip of it relaxing and having fun.

I did hell lot of wild things in past two months. I bought an Audi and drove thousands of kilometers, travelled over 50000 miles in flights, changed my job, my home, eating and sleeping habits, spent good time in gym to look more strong and many other crazy things that I never did before in life.

I will share the whole story after sometime and I am sure most of you would love it. But for now I am just sharing a lesson with you. When something bad happen to you, just chill out and relax, it will be alright with time. Its so easy to say but hard to practice. But just give it a try and forget the thing that troubled you at least for some part of the day. You will definitely feel better.

You can do the following things to get out of depression or a personal disaster or failure.

  1. Do some sports and workouts
  2. Join a club (I am in to photography and own and canon 7D)
  3. Practice your lovely hobby (made lots of Vids )
  4. Talk to people (family / friends, donโ€™t get into wrong hands and spoil your life)
  5. Watch a movie or comedy show or a sports show (this can dangerous and a big time waster if addicted)
  6. Travel even if its to next village
  7. Donโ€™t read a book (for me it was hard to concentrate) rather read blogs or surf internet.
  8. Drive a loooot (even if itโ€™s a bicycle, ride it for long distances)
  9. Do shopping
  10. And do a little showoff (if you have money, just ignore it if you donโ€™t)

Most importantly please understand that if something good for you it will come to you otherwise best is waiting for you. Just give yourself time and give a kick a** start to the new start.

Setbacks, failures, rejections are a part of life and everything will teach us to better next time. The real thing is to stand up and walk after every fall. The moment we give up hope and lay down people crush and walk over us and think that they won and itโ€™s their right.

I am back to you all after a tough seasonal time and would like to get back to work on following things.

  • Track M.Tech 2012 Admissions (please some help me with finished admissions)
  • Make I n I mobile friendly application
  • Make a personal Facebook page to give personal update ( I received lots of mails asking if I am still alive)
  • I got few cutoffs from IITs under RTI, and need someoneโ€™s help to post them.

I n I run totally on your contribution, support and encouragement. I am back after a long time and would like to give I n I a push. I feel happy to be with the people I love and share everything to encourage them to rock the world ahead of them. I call you all to join with and support each other. Letโ€™s work for a strong community once again. Suggest me if I missed something in this todo list or give a recommendation that would help many students all across the nation.

    Dear Zahid,
    You failed to inform the application dates for IITs. Imagine about all those students who were dependent on InI for updates and missed them. I think you should focus more on GATE related topics and help the people regarding the same rather than just giving your experiences related to life, your success stories. For that, you can start a separate blog or write some novels like Chetan Bhagat. You made I n I popular, made people subscribe, they are depending upon you and hence there’s more responsibility on your side. Let the good work continue in the future.

    Hello sir… i have been keenly looking at your blog and in my busy days of work i relied on thus blog completely. Very sorry to tell,you just left us in the midst of tension period and i missed all the IIT admissions.

  8. bakeel khan

    excellent sir.. i was waiting for the next post from some last days.. but nice back show.. warm welcome in the world of Education.. thaks for ur all support. thanks again and please do not forget to upload your experience from past days we are eagerly waiting…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Arun Kotha

    @people who missed updates on the notifications of colleges:

    I pity you ๐Ÿ™
    But guys come on, we are all grown up adults, well matured and can think for ourselves. We need not and should not depend on someone else’s help.

    And after all this is our career. we should never ever dare to completely rely upon others. you could have explored the official websites when there was no update from INI for a long time.

    Its not too late. At least now start exploring on your own, so that you don’t miss other notifications. Zahid is only helping you.

    All the best for all.

  10. Subhankar

    Nice to have u again sir…!!

  11. Ashish Joshi

    Welcome Back Sir,Please Keep Posting your Blogs.

  12. arjan mukherjee

    Hi zahid,
    thanks a lot for inspiring us for gate preparation! i would urge all gate aspirants through this forum to raise a voice to the iit’s for conducting GATE twice a year,like the other exams like GRE or Gmat, even it’s more likely that “CAT” by IIM’s will become a biannual event in near future, it really helps working people to keep their focus for “GATE”. as we all know after spending 10 hrs in office its become very difficult to maintain the momentum of preparation for” feb 2nd sunday”:D, and leaving the job is also a huge risk in the present scenario, wats ur opinion about this?? please let me know

    1. srinath

      I agree with u that GATE exam should be conducted twice a year.


    yes,admissions to IIT’S is over. A CENTRALIZED COUNSELLING of many NIT’S is about to start…


    thanks…finally you are back….

  15. Jay

  19. Jim

    You could have informed that u forum wont be functional for the time being,many aspirant might have waited for your updates and missed admission notices.We Expected more responsibility from your side.

  20. Rohit

    Give some relevant text or audio(like Nikhil Krishnan’s) on what to do n what not to on day of GATE exam as half of the streams have their exam starting at 2 pm.
    This may sound stupid but that is the time which counts and not considered as important by most aspirants.
    thank you
