Thursday Challenge :- WRITING & WRITING TOOLS (Pens, Pencils, Notebooks, Journals, Calligraphy, Graffiti,…)

Thursday Challenge

I still think these are the best tools for writing .. with the advent of computers , phones etc I think we are losing the art of writing…

Hi Everyone.. Its been two years writing stuff on this space.. It started as a constant pestering from someone , why i write in a diary , why not make a blog, So one fine day I opened an account to start with it … 16th october 2009 … and from then on it has been a roller coaster ride The very post i wrote was Life is all about ass

In these last two years I have had a lot of experience, Been called good-bad and Ugly,

The most recent being I have been manipulative and I write to Sulk and beckon public sympathy and how I rant once every month on this blog about my relations..  Its been a complete roller coaster …

I have also been called a Traitor and a few have written on their blogs about me , sadly they did not have the guts to take my name in spite of asking them a few times to come out in the open, I  try my best that if I have a qualm with someone I tell them quiet openly..

But this is a Happy Post and a happy day , where I want to take the opportunity to Thank that lovely person who introduced me to blogging.

There are so many beautiful people out there who have been coming over to this blog every time I write something. I have so many people to thank and wish all the best in their Life. God bless you all..

Over years I have made some very good friends Even if we have not met , or chatted maybe talked once or twice over the years, But It does seem that I know them very well reading there articles. I have some favourites too, and for some I am favourite.. Let me please Take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to everyone who clicks on the link knowingly or unknowingly .. Thank you for all the comments, a lot of you know and I have been blamed with that too, That I am comment hungry.. OH YES no denying that I love the comments coming , But If I have forced you to come then please I am sorry.

Some of you have stood by me in my personal problem times and Good times .. Some of you hate me , some love me .. What I have found is its true things change.. Change in Inevitable , Some have just brushed past, Some who stood by me THEN have turned their back now… hence my writing that it has been a roller coaster ride.

Thank you for all the emails you have sent, The phone calls and Sms Messages.

So this post is dedicated to All the people who read what I write.  The ones who are younger than me let me say I love you all , All who are elder to me I respect you all.

Over the time I am sure I have offended a lot of you out there Let me take this opportunity to say Sorry to anyone and everyone who I let down for any reason..

I am sorry

Please let By gones be By-gones and let’s be friends again, life is too short to hold grudges of any kind.  I am sorry VERY SORRY.

Chaman main ikhtilat rangon boo se baat banti hai

tumhi tum ho to kya tum ho

I would like to Extend my hand of friendship to all those who are there..  God bless you all, have a good day and Thanks for reading this.

A scorpion is sitting watching a frog .. and asks the frog to come over and give it a ride

The frog say Are you kidding me , you will bite me

Scorpion say “No I wont , I promise”

Frog comes hopping and as he approaches sure enough as he looks back , the scorpion bites him ..

The frog says What the hell, why did you bite me , Now we both are going o Die..

The Scorpion says I am sorry , I know but its in my nature

I had written this article for Viewspaper ages ago, Was talking to a dear friend who suggested that we should write for our blogs , So I am putting here too 🙂

I am past the stage where I can say I am the youth of India but I have experience to count upon, so I can well imagine what sort of problems plague the youth. When I was studying, the only thing on my mind was what I would do once I graduated. There was no set structure except for discussions on the options one had. Although the advent of technology today has made students comparatively more aware of their choices, a lot of issues still bother them.

The ‘reservation policy’ is creating a divided society and producing a system run by the undeserving and the incompetent. A progressive India, promoting a 50% reservation in the government and private sectors spells disaster – more so, with the OBCs quota. I can understand the noble thought of getting everyone to the same level, but I wonder how this would help. All this has caused a further divide across the country; the rich and the so-called upper castes hate the lower caste more when they see an undeserving (academically poor) candidate getting a seat in a medical or engineering college above the one who deserves.

Getting a seat in a prestigious college requires a lot of hard work.

How can hard work be measured?

I’m sure the kids of the rich and the poor work equally hard, burn the midnight oil and appear for the same exam. Then how come a student who has higher marks loses a seat.  Would this not frustrate the deserving candidates more?

I can understand that the poor can’t afford extra classes or tuitions. The government’s priority in that case, should be to ensure that such facilities are made available to the poor. Free and compulsory education should be provided.

If reservations are to remain, then they should be reduced in percentage and be merit-based, with less difference between the person who gets a seat on merit and one who gets it on reservation. It is unfair that a student at rank 800 gets a seat preference over a student at rank 500, just because the former has a reservation preference to avail.

Moreover, there are rich people from the lower strata who are unfairly using reservations to get free seats. The social standing of the person should be taken into consideration too.

Reservations create an unfair win-win situation because they use the reservation card throughout their lives, to get a seat, then a job and thus, an undeserving student who cannot differentiate a dissection from a dissertation becomes a doctor. Imagine how many people’s lives would depend on such hands that pick up the knife on the basis of a reservation.

The worst thing is that this reservation system passes on to the kids of such people too, and thus, this becomes a vicious circle that goes on and on. The students, who lost their seats to reservations, would be the ones who stand there, dazed and shocked, thinking of how much hard work they put in for a seat that they lost to someone’s caste.

I’d say that reservations actually encourage caste system and magnify the whole divide within the society

Disclaimer :- A NONSENSE POST — Lots of thoughts going through my mind .. Weird ones ..

Over the years and time I have experienced and Heard this Line Everything in Life comes with a lot of luggage.. you say something to someone when you are emotional.. it takes a whole new meaning ..  a lot of external situations come into the whole scenario .. I have experienced that ..

What is love.. Why does love come with all the its and buts … If two people love each other than what is a whole load of plethora that comes in between..

We are taught a lot of stuff as we grow up , one of them is that we will meet someone , a lovely person and that we will have our very own happy ending ..  Each story we read or we are told tells us , implores us to wait for that special one , for that One person that will come into your life and somehow transform it into a New something …

Tell us to Wait for that unexpected declaration of love , No one tells us though how long we got to wait 🙂 .  and  in all this we sometimes lose the plot, in all this commotion , teachings, stories, experiences and focusing over the plot we still end up meeting the wrong person 🙂

We read the wrong signs ..

We lose our way and sometimes the will to think too .. to think logically and sanely, to use the messages .. To use the experiences .. to learn a lesson from the experiences.

We are unable to tell from the ones who want us and the others who don’t and WORSE  from the ones who are only there to use us, Like we do with a Mango.. you suck it dry and then throw it in the bin or worst still in a garbage heap lying in the corner of a road. .. USE YOU oh yes they do with such precise calculated moves..

We are Unable to tell from The ones who will be there for a while , be a leech and when there wishes are over they part ways.

From the ones who will stay from the ones who will leave ..

Then I hear people say MOVE ON.. I mean what is Moving on ..  Maybe Picking up pieces and Starting all over again , freeing ourself for something better in future .  Maybe the happy ending of this manipulated-dirty-Cheap-calculating relation is the MOVING ON.. Or

Maybe The Happy ending is the Happy Knowing that through all the broken hearts,  through all those misread signs .. through all that feeling of being used up.. through all that crap  ..

Through all that time spent with someone Disloyal.. with someone who is a CHEAT .. someone who was False .. someone who was with the black heart .. someone who was just a user .. someone who just wanted the money .. someone who just wanted the SEX .. now not with you but with someone else …. Maybe thats Moving on..  

Maybe in all this Time we never gave up hope  and maybe we will find that one person … or WILL WE…
