Ideas... Ideas... and Ideas....
It's gonna kill me or I'll die ideating.... I have no idea
Ideas are all around... very profound
Yet they are illusive...deceptive!!!

Entrepreneurship, as an Idea, is growing within me
from I do not remember when; it has been there
from eternity to eternity, I suppose!
I have tried very hard to ignore it but as
Master Oogway said in the movie Kungfu Panda
"One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it".
Experienced turtle!!!

Idea(s) could be right under our nose... but we couldn't see it!!!

What motivates Idea-creation?
  • solving some real-life problem
  • bettering existing solution

Masala Dosa & Filter Coffee

Today had Masala Dosa and Filter Coffee in Ratna Sagar, a newly opened restaurant above GTB Nagar Metro Station Gate No.2. The cost is very high. Masala Dosa costs 85/- and Filter coffee 40/-! Nevertheless, I enjoyed eathing the dosa and drinking the coffee, both of which I miss very much in Delhi.

Coaching vs School

Today has been like any other day- special. Special that I'd another day to life, to experience.

What did I do? In the morning I went to home-tutor a girl who is in 11th standard. She is a bright student dreaming of getting into IIT. She has joined a coaching institute. Added to it she has regular school classes to attend, assignments to do and lab journals to make. Hell lot of pressure.

Today, after her parents went out she asked me how she should prepare. She was advised by someone that at this point of time her main focus should be on her school and CBSE board exams. On getting good marks she can get admission in any good college in Delhi University. After that she can prepare for engineering entrance tests.

The other option, which she is currently following, is to continue her coaching classes and prepare simultaneously. Of course, it is very tough and tiring, requires great will-power to push yourself. But I feel, she can manage. She has the fire!

My Dearest Dreams

My Dearest Dreams,
It is with great sorrow I have to inform you that back then and there (in some weird dimension of time and space) I lost my way into what was shown to me as reality but turned out to be illusion. Not stopping there, this illusion morphed into ever receding mirage! Even before I could realize I had already traveled some distance chasing it. I had already squandered away some of my time.

 I have lost all moral rights to seek you in my waking 'reality'. I do not expect you to wait for me. And why should you? I have no reason. I.... eh.... 

But I am so human, a shameless human! Don't you know that? In spite of all that I have done, or not done, to you I wish you to be there for me. Please do not ask me any reason. I am a shameless fool. Also, a hopeful fool.

If my words can reach out to you, 
I hope, so will my feelings laden in them. 
I hope I have not lost you for ever. 
I hope you are still near. 
I hope to see you.
I hope you could see me. 
I hope I am not too late. 
I hope I have not gone too far.  

Not anticipating but still hoping!

A Lost Dreamer

Towards the end of April I started teaching as private tutor to 4 students, one each from 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade.

I left school after completing my 12th in the year 1999. All these years, after school, I was under the impression that lot of water has flown under the bridge in last 14 years, that problems faced by students now would be different for that of my time.

But in last one and half months I have realized that practically NOTHING has changed. The options might have increased, so is competition. The worst, I feel, is undue pressure on students- parental pressure, peer pressure, school pressure, coaching pressure. Added to all these is confusion of growing as teenager. I feel really, really  sad seeing them coping with all these and even more.

When it comes for their kids, parents always thinks the best, the best school, the best grades, the best college, the best job..... In the process they tend to become little insensitive.
How much is too much...  is the question I have!

Sheer time waste.
Wished I would have seen Vicky Donor 

Faith n Confidence

Well... What do we need in life to about it? Faith in God and confidence in self. 
Is there any thing more? I think rest every thing follows!

Saw the movie Kahani with Shubhum, my younger brother on 20th March.
Fresh story, neatly directed, and well acted by all.
Vidya Balan is the only actress with acting substance in today's Bollywood. I am looking forward to more and more of her.
I do not like to have favorite actor or actress. But it seems my fav actor has become Amir Khan and actress is Vidya Balan. It is not that I chose but it happened. :-)

Today I saw the movie Agneepath. All have done commendable job. Thought being a remake yet I feel this movie has a soul of its own. It should not be compared with the old one.

Thoughts can either be shared or ignored. All these days I chose to ignore them. I had no intention to write them down. Even now I do not say I've come back. I never want to come back.
We claim that we have so much to say, to share. But at the end all this saying and sharing turns out to be some creepy emotions having no face value as such. Our mind gets titillated by what we experience around us. Even now I do not know what I am writing.
