We don’t have time

It was a lousy evening and the summer heat acted as a catalyst to spoil my mood. Scrolling through a web page in my mobile browser, I saw a quote and my eyes halted for a moment, *blink-blink* and then continued scrolling. In no time, I slept off.

A couple of hours passed…

Engineering was everything about being “Out of Syllabus”

We wonder why on earth we studied engineering. There are people in their early 30’s who *still* confess that “My job and my degree(s) are not related in any way”.

I hated the 4 years of my engineering life. With high dreams and passion, stepping into the college with a hope as tiny as a speck of dust. A hope, that I’ll be able to give life to my dreams. My ears ringed with these two phrases “You are going to waste your life”, “You won’t get placed”. All I could react was: F-U.

According to me, I had 4 years of time exclusively for developing and gaining expertise in my area of interests.

Student Startups – The New Era: Part 1

I’ve been waiting to write about this for a long time. I guess this is a perfect time. New year comes with new dreams, new aspirations, new energy, and etc.. For the young generation, it’s been always a dream to start their own startup. Startups are one of the hottest topics buzzing our ears wherever we go (you can’t deny).  With the extensive use of the internet to gather knowledge, and with the ease to collaborate and communicate with anyone, young India has started to run the Startup marathon. Numerous initiatives have been introduced to foster teeny-tiny to gargantuan startups.

Kun Fayakun – “be, and it is”

If you have to try to be cool, you will never be cool. If you have to try to be happy, then you will never be happy. Maybe the problem these days is people are just trying too hard.

Happiness, like other emotions, is not something you obtain, but rather something you inhabit. When you are angry and beat someone up, you are not self-conscious about your state of anger. You are not thinking to yourself, “Am I finally angry? Am I doing this right?” No, you’re out for blood. You inhabit and live the anger. You are the anger. And then it’s gone.

We all live through this game of life. But, what’s the margin that decides whether we are living our surviving?

1034 days…

Winter in Switzerland was at its peak. The room was occupied by a pretty couple. The fireplace provided the warmth.

‘1034 days’,  She said blushing and turning pink. He was stroking her hair and kissed her forehead. They lay nearby the fireplace… covered in a blanket of wool. They kissed again. Their bodies glowed like gold. That night, it was time to make some passionate love and battle the cold with the warmth of their bodies. Beads of sweat fell on her cheeks. Now, they lay exhausted.
