2012 In A Glance


2012 will go down as a year of surprises, a year worth remembering for the ups and downs I had, for the decisions I took, well, most of them correct not sure about the rest! Definitely a landmark year, a year to relish from here to eternity!

This post is a review of how I did in 2012, my shortfalls, my weaknesses, things that perished once and for all and then my successes and lessons learnt in this journey of LIFE.

This’ll be my last post for this year, let me list down all the good things first and then talk about the defeats!

Ups:

1.       Established Mind Hunters:

I and my wife Savita started a Software Testing Training Institute in Pune. We did fairly well in this debut year and now look forward for bigger challenges and greater responsibilities in 2013. So Guys, if you are reading this, wish us LUCK!

Visit our page here: www.mindhunters.in

2.       A Non-Alcoholic:

I gave up drinking alcohol completely. Now when I say ‘I gave up’ I mean not-even-seeing-it, forget about the fragrance. There’s no secret as to how I did it, just that, I avoided it completely.

3.       Regular Running:

June 2013 I’ll complete 2 years for running regularly. Although there were few hiccups but not strong enough to stop me from running. I always knew when to get back on track. I remembered just one thing, never give up!

4.       Blogging:

I took to regular blogging. Initial years, I forced myself to write but not anymore. Now, I enjoy writing, interacting with bloggers and putting my views forward. I received few (few has a new meaning now, i.e. 2) blogger awards this year. The blog traffic increased exponentially, the hit meter kept ticking with every tick good enough to being a mile long smile on my face.

My other blog abcofaix is doing pretty well too!!!

5.       Started Teaching:

I gave up my IT job and underwent career transition to full time teaching. I’ve been teaching my favourite subject Maths to students from class VIII to Class XII in Pune and I hope to do the same in coming years as well.

6.       A Minimalist in making:

I abstained myself from luxuries of life. I stopped spending unnecessarily. I gave up buying unwanted stuff. I sold my television last year (and joined the “say-no-to-television” club) to spend more time in books. I started walking whenever it was possible. I am trying to learn the easy way of simple and mindful living.

Well, this is it. Those were my learning’s from 2012 and now let me list down few nightmares which I wish to eliminate, annihilate completely in coming year!

Let’s Count a few DOWNS:

1.       A Lost world:

I lost touch with my friends. Books were my only friends. I ignored my mobile completely.

I am the architect of my own lost world. My facebook account gave up on me a number of times in order to bridge the gap between me and my friends.

Anyways, this 2013, I have decided to call my friends, say SORRY and revive the old buddy relation I had with them. I hope they are reading this!

2.       Bearish blog:

My blog lately witnessed a decline in stats and viewership. The upward curve that was throughout the year has slowly changed the direction. May be, it is because of my actively ignoring the ‘Quid-Pro-Quo’ rule or maybe it’s the content I’ve been publishing lately (sad, I don’t even know where to retrospect?).

3.       Heavy fines and financial strains:

Without getting into details just want to say, taking few things for granted and procrastination was way too painful on my wallet. In this one year, I’ve put myself in lot of financial burden. I hope to put all this behind me in coming year.

4.       Fear of Losing:

Since the day of giving up my ridiculous job and starting my own business, I have developed a constant fear of losing out on things but hoping one day this fear will just be another thing of ridicule as I look back in the past.

With all that I say a final goodbye to 2012 and wish you all reading this page and otherwise, a Very Happy New Year with lots of happiness and blessings showered throughout the year on you and your families. God bless you all.

I’ll see you next year.

Have a happy 2013.

Regards

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar : Finally The God Steps Down ...

23rd Dec 2012 is the day recorded in history of Cricket as the day when god stepped down.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar finally announced his retirement from ODI segment of the game.

They say him ‘The little Master’, Tendlya or ‘The Master Blaster’ but we call him ‘THE GOD' with different names’.

Courtesy : Facebook

A 14 year old boy took the world by storm in his debut match against Pakistan in 1987. Nobody then knew this young boy will be the DON of Cricket in years to come. There was no looking back for him. He not only made new records and surpassed the older ones; there was none other like him who happened to cheer the world for such a long time.

Courtesy : Facebook

Blessed and loved by all, the God (the Immortal) loved his fellowmen in and around the world.

This post is an inscription dedicated to Sachin Tendulkar for all the good memories he gave and affected our lives truly, deeply, madly.

Thank you once again God, for the wonderful time we had and for million smiles' you gave to this world!.

 He was the prayer of millions, he was the hope of the lost, he was THE DEMIGOD.

Here are some of the famous quotes said by eminent personalities all around the world:

 To all those who idolize the genius named “SACHIN TENDULKAR”!!!
@Hashim Amla


"To Sachin, the man we all want to be"

@What Andrew Symonds wrote on an aussie t-shirt he autographed specially for Sachin Tendulkar

 Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives "
@ BBC on Sachin


Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal.

@Brian Charles Lara

"We did not lose to a team called India...we lost to a man called Sachin" -

"The joy he brings to the millions of his countrymen, the grace with which
he handles all the adulation and the expectations and his innate humility -
all make for a one-in-a-billion individual,"
@ Wife Anjali



"I HAVE SEEN GOD, HE BATS AT NO.4 FOR INDIA"

@Hayden



Que: Who do you think as most important celebrity ?
Shahrukh: There was a big party where stars from bollywood and cricket were invited. Suddenly, there was a big noise, all wanted to see approaching Amitabh Bachhan. Then Sachin entered the hall and Amitabh was leading the queue to get a grab of the GENIUS!!

@waqar younis

A banner once said-' I WILL SEE GOD WHEN I DIE BUT TILL THEN I WILL SEE
SACHIN ' that quiet defines Sachin-The greatest.

Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has
many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the
world.
@Allan Donald


On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98. The passengers, railway officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop time in India!!
@Peter Rebouck - aussie journalist

There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others.

Road To Perdition

The other day, while I was driving back home, my wife caught hold of something. The free turn on the left was choked with un-moving traffic. I tried to get closer to the sight but the gap between vehicles was just not wide enough to let my bike pass through.

Not only were we baffled but also clueless to figure out the reason for this road block. Out of nowhere, in the middle of the day, the crowd gathered around this place immediately.

My first thoughts, it must have been an accident but there were no ambulances or doctors or first-aid. There wasn't any damaged vehicle to be seen in vicinity and the preceding traffic wasn't even moving. It was hard to figure out the reason for this sudden obstruction.

Suddenly my eyes caught hold of traffic police buzzing around the spot which was enough to comprehend that something serious has stuck at this hour of the day. Was it an accident or was it something else?

I tried to dismount from the bike but the immediate traffic wasn't very supportive. They kept honking. I just stood there and waited for the traffic to recede.

One closer look, I saw a boy in his late 20's lying with his face down inside a depression (a small trench) on the road. Was he hit by a speeding vehicle? But there was no blood on the ground. Why were people not helping him? On observing more closely, I figured out the boy was suffering from fits (sudden flurry of body trembling for no obvious reason). His body was shaking and there were none to help. The traffic police and the onlookers watched the boy in pain as if some show was going on. None came forward to offer help (including me). The guy standing close gave an impression i-ain’t-putting-hands-in-this-filth’.

I knew this wasn't me. I shouted if someone can give him water to drink but none paid heed to my words. I so very much wanted to help but I kept standing there and could not do anything. I felt ashamed of myself.

After a while, his body stopped trembling and a few good men picked him up to make way for the traffic. I slowly moved my vehicle from there and got back home. Pondering over the situation, I felt sorry for the kid and embarrassed for the fact that I stood there numb and waited for some superhero to come and rescue the kid.

How true it is? We watch so many superhero movies and try to follow in their footsteps to save the world. But this is far away from reality? Instead of helping, we try to run away from the situation. We have this constant fear of falling prey to the situation. We may deny but we shut our eyes when something wrong strikes.

Well, this incident left me with so many questions unanswered.

Before I close this post, I tried contemplating if the same situation had occurred in some foreign land, how people would have reacted. Someone from the public must have called the ambulance or 911. Someone must have immediately come forward to give water and first-aid to the person in question and others would have cleared way for the traffic to avoid jamming.

Anyways, i hope that the boy is doing well now and have recovered from this incident.

In another incident in Delhi a girl was raped in a moving bus and nobody did anything to stop it. You can read about the incident here.

P.S: This post is not written with any intention to hurt anyone’s feelings. Please do not take this post in offensive way. Thank you!

Inspirational Quote - Never Give Up !!!

Courtesy : Facebook

“Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest”

How true it is!

No matter how tough the journey is, remember it’s just the start. Never give up, keep walking. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, what counts is, you rise every time you fall. And soon you’ll find yourself taking the road to success after all the rough turns you had at start of the journey.

If you believe in yourself, never lose focus and keep trying.

Think of something you desire, you got to fight for it. Remember there’s no easy way out. Struggle is the need of the hour. Focus on the end result. The fight is not with anyone but oneself to prove that you can do it.

Have a Nice Day!

Smile


Smile, it costs nothing.

The more you smile, the happier you are. How true it sounds but in theory. We have forgotten how to smile. It has become a thing of past because we find it difficult to keep ourselves happy. The stress levels have sky rocketed. Now we need a reason to smile. There may not be a rational reason to be angry but we like seeing ourselves flush-red in face. It’s not necessary to have a cause, a reason to smile, smile for the good day, smile for the good food we eat and smile for the love we get from our family and for the healthy life.

Accept good with gratitude to god and bad without complaints. We complain all the time, think of all those less blessed, under privileged sons of god who do even get good clothes to wear or eat healthy food and yet they never complain. We are a lot better than them, so stop crying and start smiling. Remember, god never stops smiling on us. It’s just that we don’t see the bright side.

Happiness exists only if we are contented. If we are not satisfied with who we are or what we are doing, we may never feel joyous. Till that satisfaction is not there, life is not worth enjoying. Satisfaction and smile compliments each other and if we miss out on either one of them, we miss everything. And we see the world the way we are, angry, agitated and with a false mirth.

A young child always has a smile on face because he has no feelings of hatred or jealousy towards anyone. The idea of negativity or anger or frustration never took birth in his mind. His psyche is full of bliss and satisfaction. He lives in the moment and is contented with what he is doing, doesn't matter if it make sense or not. But as he grows, he learns from surroundings and slowly forgets to smile. He gets serious and less contented. He overlooks how to live in the moment. The moment when he’s in the present he starts thinking about the future with all the worries that engulf him, as a result, not only the present is ruined but he wastes a lot of time thinking about the wrong decisions he made in past. We worry about the future, we talk about the past but we forget about the present.

We must have self respect and feel good factor about our-self. If you have no respect for yourself, people will automatically stop valuing you or your words and eventually you will stop smiling.

Love yourself to love others. If you cannot love yourself, you can never share a smile with someone. A person without smile is nothing but a zombie. If we do not love our self we can never love others.  

So if you want to see the world smiling, make a habit, start smiling from today, smile for the good day god has given you, for the satisfaction you have in your work, for the people who care for you, soon, you will find out, smile cost nothing but it adds a lot of value not only in your life but in others as well.

Inspirational Quotes - Mr. Schuester

Courtesy : Facebook

In my Maths class today, one of the students was in no mood to pay attention to the new topic being taught. It seemed as if he was going through an internal battle with himself. He wanted to mend things for the wrongs he did in recent past and resolve the mental chaos inside. But he couldn't.

On asking the reason, he hesitatingly said that he scored less than 50% marks in his internal semester Maths exam for Class XI.

It was a punch in the heart for me. I was more disappointed than shocked because of the efforts I’d put in past few months. I asked him the reason for this failure, maybe it was my teaching methods or maybe the subject Maths was proving to be too Hellenic for him.

He immediately came up with a reply. There was nothing wrong in the way of teaching nor with the amount of practice we did in last couple of months in understanding the concepts and having clarity. It was basically the time management he sucked at and the unending silly-mistakes he did.

I told him when i was young even i had no prior learning on how to avoid silly-mistakes or how to manage exam time effectively. Nobody is perfect, everybody makes mistakes, some find it difficult to accept and some move on considering it a new learning. So learn from your mistake to achieve perfection. The more you practice, the lesser the chance of making mistakes. Race against time to improve efficiency!

i told him there is no one straight solution to this problem. But, one must not lose focus and practice hard to taste success again.

I can only guide him, be there with him as a teacher as a friend but he need to find answers on his own.

Life itself is a learning. We learn every moment in life. We make mistakes then only we learn. Nobody is perfect in this world. So if you really want to mend your past, start working on it today.

Tuesday, November 27


It’s been a while (almost a month) since I published a post.

Anyways, how are you all doing? I hope life is treating you and your families well this festive season.

I had an amazing November this Diwali as I was back home with my parents in Chandigarh. Visiting one’s native place after a year is a celebration in itself. With Diwali around, it’s like cherry on the cake.

How was your Diwali? Hope you had great time with your loved ones around this festive month. Before I forget, here’s wishing you Belated Diwali Wishes.

I was off to Chandigarh and my inbox piled up with 300+ (and counting) blog post mails from different bloggers. Long way to go before my inbox count comes down to less than 10.

My apologies for losing touch as I was unable to connect to any of your wonderful blogs past one month.
Talking about Chandigarh, most of my days were spent lazing around. But now I am back in Pune and thanks to the little subscription thingy activated, I have all your posts archived in my mailbox. I’ll be going through each one of them as and when possible.

I may not be writing posts too frequently as I have developed a mental block as words just don’t seem to come out of my head so easily. Not sure when will I get rid of this mental constipation.

Anyways, you guys keep well and continue writing those wonderful posts.

Regards,

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron - A Perfect Comedy

This post talks about 5 classic scenes from the movie Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron that makes it a Cult Classic.

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron is a benchmark in Indian film industry. Movie is based on the corruption prevalent in Indian politics, business and media. This film is a dark satire portraying corruption, dishonesty, bribery, fraud and sleaziness in a comical way.

The timing couldn't be just better to re-release this masterpiece amidst the corruption controversies prevalent today. The malpractices and the money laundering amongst the businessmen, religious leaders and the tainted politicians are rightly depicted leaving no stones unturned.

This movie truly deserves a must watch before you die tag. If you are born in late 90s and overhear buffs appreciating this masterpiece, now it’s a golden opportunity to watch it on big screen and be part of the elite fan club.

I am sure those born in pre-satellite era of the 80s must have seen this movie a thousand times. This post talks about 5 classic scenes from the movie that gives this movie a standing ovation for the creativity and artistry.

Scene 1: 25th Manzil bhi banaao (Round figure)!

Tarneja (Pankaj Kapur) telling the civil engineer to build 25th floor ignoring that government’s approval is only for 24 floors.

Watch the scene here:

Scene 2: Thoda khao thoda fenko, Eat Swiss Cake the American Way!

Vinod (Naseeruddin Shah) and Tarneja (Pankaj Kapur) asking D’Mello (Satish Shah) to eat some Swiss cake and throw some out of the window.

Watch the scene here:

Scene 3: Code: albert pinto ko gussa kyun aata hai!

Vinod (Naseeruddin Shah) telling Ashok (Satish Kaushik) that there’s an important call for him that he must attend. This scene was a blockbuster hit amongst the fans and dialogues from this scene are discussed even today.

Watch the scene here:

Scene 4: kounsa model hai .. mere paas Austin hai!

Here comes the fun part. The grand entry of Ahuja (Om Puri)! The inebriated Ahuja sees dead D’Mello’s coffin parked right in the middle of road thinking a drunken slept in his purple colour car (coffin) unable to move because of the flat tyre.

Remember the famous dialogues from this scene,

Ek shrabi toh dusre shrabi ki madad karega
एक शराबी तोह दुसरे शराबी की मदद करेगा 

kounsa model hai? Imported hai? Mera Austin hai..!
कौन सा मॉडल है ? इम्पोर्टेड है .. ? मेरा  ऑस्टिन है ..!

Austin ka pahiya toh thoda bada hai bhaiya!
ऑस्टिन का पहिया तोह थोडा बड़ा है भैया 

Watch the scene here:

Scene 5: Draupadi’s Cheer Haran!

The movie is really known for the classic climax, the Draupadi Cheer Haran show from Mahabharata.
D’Mello’s corpse plays the part of Draupadi on stage and everyone is fighting to grasp her. The foul mouthed Duryodhna, later takes a pledge of protecting Draupadi and drops the idea of undressing her. A hilarious scene makes this an amazing piece of work. Kudos to the Director Kundan Shah and various other protagonist actors.

Some of the dialogues from this scene:

Draupadi tere akeyle ki nahi hai, hum sab shareholders hai...!
द्रौपदी तेरे अकेले की नहीं है, हम सब शरेहोल्देर्स है 

maine Daraupadi ke cheer haran ka idea drop kar diya hai..!
मैंने द्रौपदी के चीर हरण का आईडिया ड्राप कर दिया है 

Bhabhi vaabhi kuch nahi, maine usey jua mein jeeta hai..!
भाभी वाभी कुछ नहीं, मैंने उसे जुआ में जीता है ..!

3 rupee ka dhanush tod diya .. jaao main nahi karta naatak vaatak...!
3 रुपया के धनुष तोड़ दिया .. जाओ मैं नहीं करता नाटक वाटक 

And ultimate of all:

Nalayaak, adharmi, durachari, bhrashtachari bol Sorry..!
नालायक, अधर्मी , द्रुनाचारी , भ्रष्टाचारी  बोल सॉरी 

Salim ke rehte hue kisi key eh majaal ki koi Draupadi ko haath bhi lagaaye, Good Morning Ashok...!
सलीम के रहते हुए  किसी की यह मजाल की कोई द्रौपदी को हाथ भी लगाए, गुड मोर्निंग अशोक ..!

Watch the scene here:

Watch this movie to fall in love once again!

Jaane Bhi Do yaaron is re-releasing on Nov 2nd 2012. Do not miss it.

Kill The Right Ravana

Event 1:

In a bizarre incident, Bidisha Dash Barde, a promising 23 year old model turned actor, was found dead in pool of blood in her Mumbai apartment on Monday. Her husband left for work early morning and got back late in the evening only to find her wife’s body soaked in blood in the locked ground floor apartment.
[Sources: TOI 24/10/2012]

Event 2:

In another incident, Ajmal Kasab (the main accused of 26/11 attacks, who sits contentedly in one of the most secured penitentiaries, eating biryani with eyes fixated on the political tamasha that goes in our country to decide his death penalty) asked for mercy plea which was rejected by the home ministry yesterday [Sources: TOI 24/12/2012]. But should that be of any concern to Kasab? He knows its India where the accused (convict) walks free and innocent gets punished.

Almost 4 years when Kasab landed in Mumbai and uncorked terror attacks against humanity killing hundreds of innocent souls. It’s been a pretty long wait for the families of the victims hoping against the hope to see any light in this case, that too at the helms of those busy feeding kasab, protecting him at the cost of taxpayers’ money, thinking one day he’ll open his mouth and reveal secrets about LET.

There’s no connection between the two events. The only concern is to show how an innocent gets punished for no wrong doing (in first event) and the convict will eventually walk free one day or the other (second event).

I’ll end this post with few questions that’ll never have an answer:

1.Why the convicts are not punished immediately for the heinous crime they commit against humanity?

2.What personal gains do political parties have in stalling death penalties?

3.Why so much money is spent in keeping alive a convict who one day will either break free or be extradited?

4.Why not treat them like other criminals without over-spending so much on their security and health? Why not hang them immediately? A parasite does no good to anyone, then why to keep it alive?

5.Why do we show our weaker side by not giving capital punishment to the offenders? Why give the sons of gun a chance to repeat such acts in future again?

6.When will the politicians think beyond corruption and vote bank and work honestly for the country?

Anyways, its Dussehra today, I wish all my friends, bloggers and their families a Very Happy Dussehra

An auspicious day to start with any good work
It was today that good won victory over bad

May this day clear all hurdles of your life and start new era of well-being Happy Dussehra!

Run

It’s been a while since I last ran in a marathon or ran continuously for 60 minutes thanks to the so-called self-made-busy-life, I neglected my regular running routine completely.

So, I mentally prepared myself to burn few calories today and try and break my previous best record of running nonstop for 60 minutes (nearly 5.6 kms).

Today:

I started early today. I walked for about 10 minutes before I could get into the full swing of jogging. I was out there on road with determination and strong will packed minus my I-pod and wrist-watch. I believe when the watch is on, frequent time-check leads to unwanted stress and fear of breaking down or losing out the motivation power to keep going. So I ran clutch free, all pumped up and focused.

Initially, I’d set myself small targets of running / jogging continuously for 1.4 kms completing one giant round and coming back to the same place where I started. The idea was to not to lose focus by setting up inconceivable goals. As i hit the finishing line, i was filled with new vigor to beat my previous run in a better way. So i continued running.

I ran and ran and ran. I completed 5 rounds without even stopping once covering 7 kms in 65 minutes.

Though, I was tired after the 4th round but this exhaustion was a state of mind not body. I knew i can overcome the fear of giving up by reminding myself to keep moving. Amidst the adrenaline rush, I kept myself motivated with one liner’s like stretch-your limits and I-can-do-it. At times I almost gave up but every second i refilled my weekend will with the feeling of how it feels to be on the other side of the finishing line.

I realized one important fact today that it’s the mind that controls our senses, our will to proceed or not. It’s the mind that plays the game and controls our movements. And most of the time our mind forces us to avoid hard-work and take a detour en-route relaxation.

I was so relaxed for the whole day that this feeling was beyond explanation. It feels good to be active and fresh after such a run. Now i have decided to run 3 times a week setting up small targets for myself.

Important Tip:

Always keep saying I-can-do-it rather than counting the fears of losing the game. Keep yourself focused and never take your eyes off from the target. Do not worry about the failure as every failure gives us a new learning to try the same thing in a different way. Be very positive in your thoughts and do not let any wrong notions sink into your mind.

Run for a healthy living,

Run for your lungs,

Run for your life,

Have a cause, Run for a Cause!

Volunteer yourself to running and celebrate life.

Take Care!

Aim For Your Goal

Courtesy : Facebook
Never let anyone tell you how weak you are?

If you believe in yourself, never let your dream die.

Your inner voices may say you today that you can't do it but never let that inner voice take your eyes-off from your aim!

Do not worry about the society what they'll say if you fail. Only those who never tried and lived in constant fear of failure will speak or say wrong about you. Never live in such a company.

keep trying, hardwork will meet success one day.

So, stop saying that bullshit story you keep telling yourself about you_can't_do_it_? (Jordan Belfort)

Have a Nice Day !

Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion.  You must set yourself on fire.  
~Arnold H. Glasow
