Howard Roark stands at the edge of a cliff when Ayn Rand begins her novel, “The Fountainhead”. He’s just been expelled from architectural school yet he stands there, feeling liberated. The most beautiful thing about Ayn Rand’s writing is that her characters are sure of themselves, they don’t need ratification from their families or society or eminent personalities or anyone really. They just need to be okay with themselves.

The Life and times of an FYJC student PDF Print E-mail

Well, if I had to appropriately name this article, it would be “The life and times of a slightly mad FYJC Science student, finally independent and ready to bunk college while the CET exams roll around the corner at a thundering pace.” So yeah, that's the story!

At a time when people all around the world (and all other states in India) go to high school, we ditch the normality of all that and go a level higher: Junior College. It’s a ginormous mix of students from various school boards, schools and also walks of life. Yeah, it seems really horrible and nice at the same time, but that's exactly how it is! 16 year old kids who had earlier been dependant on their parents, maids, drivers and old school friends are now thrust into independency, with limited pocket money , new people, public transport and life changing decisions without any help. Fun isn’t it?

Life : One Moment at A Time! PDF Print E-mail

In the current context of life around, there is no present, only the recent
past and the immediate future.
The mind lives in tomorrows whereas life is possible only in the present.
Lagging behind or rushing ahead is the problem. Live the moment, as it
is and as you are.
We can never have two moments in our hands, only one single moment.
The choice is ours , to live it or think. Subsequently, life reduces
to small moments that 'take our breath away'. The moments are not
special. Its our choice of living those moments that make them
special.
Life is an artistic journey through time. a symphony, a painting, a
poetic treat ... a free flowing dance piece. Every moment is a
different musical note, a different brush stroke, a different verse and
a different step.A miss of any of these creates disturbance in the
respective art. Same is with the journey of life. Each moment is to be
lived to make life a beautiful master piece.
Life is not a 'to-do' list. Its a celebration of existence.This does
not mean stopping and pushing work aside.Work should be a part
of that existence, very much like singing and dancing.Work is not a
burden on our existence.Flowers bloom, birds chirp and rivers flow.
It is not a burden they carry.It is a part of their celebration of
existence.
"Life is a celebration, a festivity. It is really a great feast, a
blissful festivity. It is not a homework, not a task that has to be
performed. Every moment is a celebration!"

The common wealth games, the way it handled the run up was pathetic. The way it treated the poor people and the stray animals was absolutely disgusting however that has nothing to do with how the athletes are performing and they are making India proud.

Gold after gold, silver after silver men and women alike are making the citizens of this great country proud. Everytime I open the TV I see an Indian on the podium and it makes my day. We are all proud of you guys, keep on the great work. What else is fantastic is how we can stand shoulder to shoulder with the best in the world and come out as winners. Another fantastic thing is how India is united atheletes from the smallest villages and the largest cities and fighting for one cause, making India a name to reckon with.

On a side funny note, today at the trap shooting an Englishman came first and an Indian came second. It was really weird and funny to hear "God save the Queen" play and the St George's Cross flying high in India after some 60 years. Vindication for you Brits?

An Interesting Situation PDF Print E-mail

If God exists, am sure that he/she(He from now on for simplicity) is having a hell of a time sitting in heaven seeing the chaos and confusion in His creation. This world could be his playtime, and we could be puppets in His hands. But interestingly I feel, he would have to have uncountable hands to puppeteer the world. If He is in control, if He is fate and destiny, then what does that make us? An entertainment factor for His amusement.

Amusement is the only 'emotion' He'd feel by having a look around. If He can feel that is!!! I sometimes wonder what characteristic a supreme being would have? In the language barrier that surrounds me, I would have to say that we haven't thought of His characteristics. Just acceptance of His existence is what we believe. And ironically does He even care about what we believe? Why does everyone expect Him to be fair? Why should He? And if He has to be what we expect Him to be as, wouldn't the circularity of His puppeteering and our expectations create an interesting situation? Think about it!!! The way I would look at someone who is all powerful, will be someone who keeps himself at a distance, does not interfere in the going ons of the world.

Just watches and has a jolly good time. Why would He want to interfere? Why would he want to care? If He loves us, then it gives him a bigger reason to not care, cause he can't be partial or unfair (supposed characteristic). Then why do we pray? If we believe God to be fair, then the question of fulfilling any desire based on praying is absurd. Then this constant scenario of praying does seem to be a self created illusion. And the reasons for praying are even more absurd. Prayers for humanity and mankind must definitely make Him feel foolish as to not understand what the homo sapiens best interests are. If we believe Him to be all powerful then how can you not expect him to understand what is the best thing to do? Why is this process of praying involved? No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to fit the Ultimate Spirit into my scheme of life. His existence is of no primary importance because it won't affect my process of living!

We won! Ayodhya judgement. PDF Print E-mail

The country in the last few days was feeling like after a board exam. The country didnt study for the exam properly but gave it anyways but was astonishingly surprised when it passed. Do I care about the 1/3rd land distribution ? No , I dont. Then why you ask do I say "we won"? Because we did not start a civil war. Thats a massive victory in my opinion. Everyone is just shrugging and saying "Ok, Fine whatever". Welcome to the new India.

There was however a bunch of idiotic lawyers in Lucknow that rushed onto an unsuspecting podium even before the official verdict was handed over with V signs and a gleaming screaming face. It was an ugly scene and I felt like slapping them but India showed that those media hungry idiots are a minority and we really dont care about such hypocrits.
