If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy.

We were all lazing around for a few weeks. Going to classes and waiting for our new teacher to come. The previous one resigned and the entire school was clueless and happy but we were sure and proud that the reason was our batch.So the fourth period assigned to him was our lazing around period.No one actually enjoyed being taught music by a musically frustrated professor anyway. Enjoying the last few days of our schools,clicking pictures,planning for future,signing slambooks and totally sanguine.And then something struck. 
Firday the 13th lucky,unlucky but it is still etched in my memory even after 5 years just as fresh as the morning dew.Desks aren’t meant to sit on neither the chairs are meant for keeping our shoes but its a careless phase and so that is how we were all sitting. A young dashing guy with a case strapped firmly on his back, dishevelled hair falling on his deeper than the pacific eyes and a breathtaking smile crossing his face glided into the classroom like an enchanter ( No am not exaggerating!!).

We were simply stunned to react leave alone getting off the tables and say good morning.”Simmer down!’ He said in his liquescent voice dipped in tipple.I swear i was blitzed.

In that bewitched state we looked at him as he carefully took out his violin and played Tchaikovsky second movement. I don’t even familarize with the M in music but that one period those 55 minutes we were all beguiled and realized how deep and mystifying music can be.

That was the first and last class we had with him. We passed out in a week.5 years later when I went back to look for him i got to know he no longer teaches there infact no one knows where he is.I have tried my level best to track him down but I guess he is lost just like we were in his recital that day.

Life Is About Moving On…

In life, everything has to be risk, sacrificed, give, take, and even received. What comes up, even how hard it is, in joy, sadness, hatred, and even in depression you would take it and learn from it.

No matter it is, life is going, forwarding, and moving.

Shooting Stars… ★

The shooting star in the sky
wish upon it 
close your eyes…..

Wish before the white trail goes
fading with the reflection 
on the river below…

Feel the smile spread on your face
as a childish memory resurface
search the open empty dark sky…..

For another shooting star that might fall
because you know your wishes are many
and Oh My!!! they aren’t even Small  ❤ ❤ 🙂

Career Ahead…

Posted: January 18, 2012 by Ankur in Writes...

I define a job prospect as an expectation of a person availing a job or the likelihood of a person obtaining a desired position. This attainment could be subjected to abilities and qualifications of the individual and the possibility of any specific job being available. A healthy heart and a decent job are the prerequisites of any common man. There has been a tremendous growth in the employment market of India. With an increase in population, India has seen a growth not only in employment seats but also opportunities. Says my friend who is an engineer in Instrumentation, “Gone are those days when only Civil, Mechanical and Electrical engineering were the only opted branches for the course. Many other courses are going great guns. And students are taking up this course more out of passion. It’s no more a Hobson’s choice. To expand the horizon of thinking and to make the career journey truly memorable, opportunities are plenty.Recalls a colleague of mine who is specialized in Nephrology, ” There was a time when only the conventional doctors like physicians and surgeons were given a code of respect. But now, fields like Pharma, microbiology and research are also considered at par.

With the advent of a new year 2012, the Indian economy has recovered to a great extent from financial crisis kudos to the country’s thriving service industry wherein information technology and software domains have taken a giant leap in the market. The young generation seems pretty satisfied with the private sector work and life. So as of now, a wide number of vacancies exist across various sectors viz a viz, IT, banking, government, telecom, postal, journalism, engineering, medical, biotechnology, automobile, law, management, analytic, the list continues. Whereas Goliath companies like Navratnas always keep their arms open for meritorious and deserving employees, private companies like Wipro, Infosys, Hindalco, Mu Sigma give new opportunities to the enthusiasts.

Higher qualified degrees like M.Tech., MS, MD, MBA are the added feathers in the cap. Not only these degrees polish the chances of reaching heights in career, but also improve chances of getting handy with current work. There has been a radical shift in the demand in industries like textiles, chemicals, food processing, steel, transportation, cement, machinery, pharmaceuticals, energy, clothing…

Opportunities are plenty and omnipresent. From content writing to sports, from archaeology to interior decoration, all required is to stand up and claim for it.

Let me take you into the DARK!!!

When it starts to pain
to keep up that smile
after you have chased something
miles after miles…..

When those pieces of eroded sins
pierces you from within
every now and then…

I say cut the chase
and let it flow
let yourself bleed
but make sure its slow…

You know that room
an empty dark space
hiding behind that cheery facade…

For so long its been calling for you
Go there! and surrender……

Let the darkness creep 
on your insides
shut all the windows…

So that no false ray 
can you give you all 
those false hopes

of someone waiting 
for you at the bend
Surrender! because dark is true and real
And the only trustworthy friend…

To Trust…

Trust is the foundation of every successful friendship and relationship. Without it, the entire thing would be non-existent…

O my own teachers I’ll say with love

you changed who I am in the world.

You nurtured the thoughts of a young man,

when I thought I was just a boy.

Thank you for being there

at times when skies were gray.

Thank you, for lending an ear

When I had things to say.

You showered love on me lavishly

when no one seemed to care.

You brought me joys untold,

to fill my heart with moments of gold.

I would have felt isolated and lonely,

if you had not been there,

I lack the words to let you know

how much you mean to me.

But I will profusely thank god for you

until the eternity.

Thank you for being my life’s role model.

When I consider all you have taught me

and reflect on the kind of person you are,

I want to be like you-

smart, interesting and engaging,

positive, confident, yet unpretentious.

I want to be like you-

well-informed and easy to understand,

thinking with your heart as well as your head,

gently nudging us to do our best,

with sensitivity and insight.

I want to be like you-

giving your time, energy and talent

to ensure the brightest possible future

for each of us.

Thank You.

For giving me a goal to shoot for.

I want to be like you…
