If I can...

If I can...

..spread the smile and make at-least one person a day smile, I think my day has been fruitful.

I think this has to be one of the most important things that I have learned this year and I try to stick by it.

Sleep...

Sleep

...in heavenly peace.

After a hectic day of work,
after a tiresome semester,
after driving for days,
hiking across parks and trails,
clicking for minutes and hours,
cooking days and nights.

All the above activities....
is keeping me busy.

and I just feel like sleeping.
I guess some rest is good,
before I start the last semester here.

The Yeses and Nos

Roses and Thorns

The year has been good. The year has been bad.
There has been roses and the thorns.
The smiles and the cries.
Academically loaded, dis-loaded in a few other things.

The taste

Chai ki Chuski...

...of somethings are such that they cannot be replicated anywhere.
The road chai is one such thing.

Waiting

The Wait

...for so many things.

PATIENCE is the key I guess.

What is education?

Education...

Education should go beyond the normal books knowledge and also impart life skills.

Its the soul that needs to discover it finally.

To Indian Cricket...

For the Love of..

I know there are hard times..
I know there are failures..
I know that the audience is caught up with the Twenty Twenty Buzz...
I know that Mahendra Singh Dhoni rocks (both cause he was from my school and is a great leader)
I know that Sachin was a God, Is a God and will be a God forever..
I know that the rest of the world is looking up to us now...

I know that I will be there .. through joy and sorrow...
I know I will still stay up late in nights to watch you perform, even if you suck at it and lose the match.
I know I will clap and clap and shout, sitting in any corner of the world, in the hope that my words will reach your ears.

And I know I will shed a tear of joy, every time you win, like I did when you won at Chennai.

- a true fan.

With Age

With Age...

...comes a vision that is often reflected in the textures of the skin.

Here's to the old age!

Journey

Journey

...should never stop.
Even if it means walking when there is no vehicle to carry one around..
Even if the destination is too far and out of sight.

Contrasting Thoughts

Contrasting Thoughts

How do you remove the fear of education within children of Rural India?
How do you make every kid smile and go to school with the same zeal?

Academic Load!!!



If I had studied as much as I did today, I would have definitely got a PhD by now!

Can't wait to get back ...

To School

...to the schools to interact more with these kids..
Unfortunately I still have a few more months to go before that happens!

Till then I find solace in the fact that people in the class were pleased with my presentation on the project.

Shades of color...



These days.. I see the shades of color within the blankets of white and grey..
I pause..
I stare at them for a long time...
and then wait for spring.

And it's just the start of winter.
We had the first full fledged snowfall today, which in itself was a beautiful sight.

What is healing?



bruised egos...
a shattered nation...
my mom who underwent an operation recently....
the money plant in my living room which caught a frost bite...
economies of nations...

and many more.

Healing is a process.
A time consuming process.

The colors of nature


With the snow all around...

I miss the ...
Fire in the sky
The dramatic play of lights...

Does anyone know how to upload larger pictures using blogger without losing out on the quality? (and not via html on Flickr)

Miss Munnar

Munnar Tea

...I meant I miss Munnar.
From a friend's status message...

"Don't think 'anti-terror', think pro-peace if you really wanna bring a change..."

I think that makes so much sense.
