A Personal Account

This last five days have shown me how life is going to be after I pass out from my College. I realized the world is going really fast. After this semester, I have got only one more semester to go. After that I'll be called an A grade Mechanical Engineer, ofcourse my percentage is quite good till now. Even if I do prettty bad in the next semester, it's not pull me down atleast below the A grade line. 

I think studying engineering is one of the most safest option if you're looking for an easy study. I got the prestigious selection in this Govt. of India funded NERIST. It's not bad at all. When I was in first year i was quite a sincere students, it was a habit though, as my mom is pretty strict and She has been a nightmare for me when I was in School. Thanks MOM, otherwise I won't have this percentage. I'm not saying that I'm still sincere or studying regularly, that scope is totally out of focus for the time being. 

OOps!! my story if getting off the track. I was talking about the world changing rapidly, and I realized today only. 

In the last five days, I completed 30 assignments, 3 seminar reports of atleast 30 pages each, a training dairy of 100 pages, and have given 3 seminars. In each seminar I have shown around 30 slides accounting 90 slides in total. Why I'm mentioning this is that I want the readers to imagine the time and efforts that i must have given to read the reports, sort out the points and put them in the slides. Above these I have been having internal assesment test continuously in these five days. I couldn't explain How have I done it and I don't want to get through those memories again. It'll be a nightmare. I have slept for only 10 hours in total in these five days. And this is making me sick. I'm surely going to a long sleep after this write up.

Before these five days, the whole semester I did nothing except for watching movies, blogging, chatting, and playing badminton. My major exam is starting day after tomorrow, that is on the 1st november 2008. Till now I have not read even a single chapter of any of the courses. What I know is the names of the courses only. (I have been following this routine for the last two years after I got broke up with my 'V'. She is ex though, I still prefer to called her as mine, kind of fondness)

That's why I said engineering is really easy to study if you have some knowledge of Mathematics.

I'm going for the sleep. Good night readers.

Silence talks better than Words

This is about a moment that I and 'V' have shared together. I used to think about this all the time, specially when it is a cold winter night, late and when i'm lying on my bed, alone in my room.

Who is 'V' ? You might be having this question in your mind. Well, she was my girlfren, we broke up two years back. Yet, her memories are still alive in my mind each one of them.

I went to JORHAT, a small town in Assam, North East India. I was too eager to see her, meet her as she accepted my proposal after two long years. I met her. But, my concern is not the moments that we spent together. This post is only for that moment, in which we talked in silence.

It was the time for me to go. My bus was scheduled to leave at 6.30 pm. It was around 5.45 pm. I was there sitting in a chair in the station. I was recalling all those moments that I spent with her during the day. I had to stay only for a day as I was having exams coming up. All the memories were lingering around me. I was missing her so much. I wished to listen to her voice just once last time before leaving. 

That time I wasn't using cellphones neither did she. She was staying in the Hostel. So, I called up from a local Phone boot to her Hostel Phone. her room was on the far side of the hostel. And I never expect her to be the first to pick upthe called. I still remember clearly, it was at the end of the fifth ring, the receiver was picked up. I heard a familiar voice, and Lo.... it was her. She was waiting for my call. She said nothing else and then started crying. I felt her tears rolling down her cheeks. I couldn't say anything nor did dhe do. I was silent and neither she spoke a word more. 

Now it was more than 40 minutes without a single word. It was 6.28 pm and the bus had already arrived and all the passengers were onboard except for me. They were calling me. But, I couldn't say anything to her, i couldn't even move. Even in silence I can hear her telling me not to go. And I am sure that she must have felt that I don't want to go either. 

All of a sudden she broke her silence and said in a very weak voice "Your bus must be waiting, go safely, I am there by your side. I LOVE YOU". If she didn't break her silence I would have surely miss the bus. I give her a smooch and said goodnight and stepped onboard the bus. Whole journey I felt as if she was sitting by my side, leaning her head over my shoulder. Sometimes I would look over as if it were for real.

Though it has been quite a time, the moment is still fresh in my mind. But, I don't know how did she knew that the bus was waiting for me. She was in her hostel and that's quite far from the station. We spoke no words, yet we were talking to each other in silence. May be it was " Silence talks better than Words  ". 

We are no more together. But, she is still a part of me.

And if you have a bad breath or a stained teeth, you won't smile at all. You might have seen the smile of Aishwaria Rai Bachchan. Isn't it awesome ?? You will surely want to smile like that and even more.

The Breath Of Life

No one can live for more than a few minutes without breathing, yet how many of us are aware of the importance of proper breathing ? We need to breathe slowly and deeply. Then the body cells work in unision and bring back harmony and health to the system. Here are three breathing techniques to the system. One should practice all of them everyday as many times as one can. But, minimum one should do 11 times each of these techniques to be able to feel the benefits. If one is doing after meal there should be a gap of two hours. Otherwise, one can finish the technique and immediately sit for food.
