Technology Intrigues Me

ChronographAdvancement of technology is one of the living and fast paced example of Darwin’s Theory of evolution. The best part of Technological evolution is that everything is man made or eventually evolved through the scientific inventions of human race and motivation from mother nature.

Another classic benefit is in many cases the species of a typical race are available for comparison. Proving it easier for all is one can have a fully working specimen of the species to make changes in the new evolution. For example mobile phones, cars, laptops and wrist watches. One could get a model of a 1524 pocket watch and compare with today’s latest model of the wrist watch, establishing the technological advances that have occurred over the past few hundred years. Possibilities in the imagination for technological advancement can hold no bounds if one explores them wisely.

Human race still struggles to find out why and how some things work the way they work in nature. For example weather, human death, Bermuda Triangle and many others. But technology developed by humans itself can achieve such heights that one would have not even thought about a thousand years ago.

Does Love Do It 2 You – Part II

Just another weekend came along. A mate of mine was visiting me at my new place where I shifted. It had been another busy week and we were just talking along what shall we do this evening. This friend of mine, he likes to know what’s happening in my life and tries to find out almost everything he can. All intensions behind his curiosity are good because he likes to make sure that I am okay. We were talking and the matter about her came up.

He kept on saying what have you done about it and when are you going to ask her to meet and tell her how you feel about her. One of those types who would love to see me happy but if I back out from asking a girl he would nag me till I am frustrated. But doesn’t matter, after all he is a mate. Friendship a great thing when it is true. The discussion fired up my passion and finally I gave up my silence and made the move.

Picked up the mobile and sent her a sms. The love style of the 21st century’s SMS generation. Asked her if I wasn’t asking for too much, would she mind meeting me as I had something important to tell her. After a long wait in which we had already decided to go to the cinemas to spend the rest of the evening, the answer came. It is to ask too much and I don’t feel comfortable to meet you. What ever you have to say just text me and get it over with. Now guys take a moment to think. The above two lines are coming from a girl whom I love but she doesn’t know that I do. But at the same time I know her and I am not going to do her any harm if we met. What a world, hey, you know someone for four bloody years and this is what you get back. They feel uncomfortable in even meeting you. Never mind bite the bullet and move on to the next step. Someone would say I would have stopped here, but friends feelings were in command and there was nothing I could do to stop my self.

Took a pencil and pad, feelings started to flow. Wrote down whatever I felt about her, not to forget that my friend was accompanying me to put the words in such phrases that sounded soft but straight to the point. “Love You” was to be mentioned in those phares but had to take the encapsulation of “Like You”. Funny thing, these matters of heart. But anyway, after a mind boggling and full fledge writing and correcting, my friend said – It sounds just right. My heart said to me after reading it once again, Shriroop this is not your true self expressing. At that instance a thought struck – Life is already complicated don’t make it more.

Calming my mind down, letting my true feelings flow freely and at the same time asking my heart to rule for a short while rather than my head, the words started coming out of my mouth spontaneously. All I wanted to say to you is that I like you a lot and I have had feelings for you now since a long time. A simple sentence so true that I could not have made it any more clear and simple. A fact laid down so beautifully by my heart that even my head started asking the question – Is that so? After a few minutes I wrote the sms and alongside my friend was reading it or shall I say proof reading it. Once I finished writing the sms, I turned to my friend to ask his opinion. The expressions on his face said to me much more than his words. He said this is just perfect and no one can make this sound or feel better than the words from your own heart. The sms was in outbox scheduled to send and being a bit superstitious and nervous I crossed my fingers while sending it.

The amazing feeling of freeness was flowing throw my blood. The bullet was fired leaving behind the smoke coming out from the barrel like the arrow had left the string of the bow after a 23lbs pull and brushing through the side of the elbow. Finally there I had said the words to her. The feeling that I will think at some point in life that, what if I had said to her rather than holding my silence, had gone. I must say friends, it is an awesome feeling that makes you feel within your heart that you are true to your own self. Above all you found the courage to believe, accept and confess in a feeling that your heart was experiencing. While all that was happening I suddenly heard a voice, my friend said, what time is the film? Reality comes knocking at your door always when you try to enjoy your dreams, but hey that is life. Live while you can and make the most of it.

Watched “NEXT”, starring Nicholas Cage, Julianne Moore and Jessica Biel. A guy who can see the future for next few minutes and whole story revolves around that. But as soon as you see the future and know what is there it changes cause now you know it. But amazing dialogue that caught my attention and still stays hauting in my mind was made by Julianne Moore – “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!” Absolutely unaware how true it is and gives out different meanings if you heard it for the first time, it made my thoughts go off the tangent while watching the film. A skeptical thought pattern had started flowing through my mind. In the film the lead actor had saved a life of a good cop but being a fugitive he was arrested and tortured by the same good cop.

The film finished and we left for the car park. Switched on the mobile and wallah the sound of sms being received. 1 New Message. Checked it. It was her reply. I went all nervous and heart started beating heavily. Even though it was a windy night with a chill in air, I was feeling hot and bit breathless. Read the sms and she did not feel the way about me as I felt about her. My heart sunk. But even to my surprise as I read further down she had mentioned – “I don’t want to see you ever again.”Nothing else but my heart wept all night.

It might be true after all friends – “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!”

Courage – One Thing You Can’t Take Away From Me


A seven letter consisting of a lot of potential that if unleashed will succeed in various directions and win many battles of real life.

Courage – The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery. This is the definition at

A quality that resides within yourself bearing such power that it could be used entirely at your discretion and will. My grandfather used to say there are two ways of facing life – accept the fact and live happily with a smile on your face. The other way is you moan and blame the fate is not right. Have a frown on the face facing the world. So decission is entirely yours.

I would rather prefer the first option as I believe my fate is already written somewhere. Courage is a gesture towards life that says that I am ready to face you. Courage is such an armour that not many of us have. It has immense potential if shown at the right time and at the right place. Bravery is another side of that coin. This quality that shines on the shoulders of brave soldiers which is even earns the respect from the enemy. Courage shown in the battle has won thousands of wars.

Courage in daily life is seen at plenty of places. To begin with, a confession of one’s mistake in front of group of people is courage. To tell someone you are wrong to someone who is far more larger, greater and powerful than you are – This is courage. Telling your Managing Director you are wrong and still making your point through. Proposing a beautiful girl to marry you. Telling the truth at any cost and in all circumstances.

When you face a disastor like earthquake and loose all your loved ones and family, but still carry on living making a fresh start. A couple who had problems to conceive a child, finally get blessed with a boy bearing in mind that they can never have another baby again. Sending this boy to the Armed Forces for service is called Courage. A mother who is crying, after losing he four sons in Second World War, not to the fact because she has lost them but that she has no more sons to send to serve the nation – This is Bravery.

Courage makes us Bold.

Moulds a person to face any situation in life. Courage becomes the backbone of any pursuit. It makes you powerful enough to stand up to something to which you do not agree. Live life with full confidence and courage and see the results. One trusts other but forgets trusting one’s own self. Never ever in life loose your own self confidence.

Trust thy Self.

Your Courage is one thing that would never leave you and no one can steal it from you. Courage enables you to make your dreams come true. Courage obtained in any form thrusts you towards success. This success transforms into encouragement, making you think even more bigger possibilities. Hence Success becomes Courage driving you towards a new bigger Goal of Life.

I would say at this juncture, do something new what you have not tried before in your life.

Be Brave, Be Courageous Make Your Dreams Come True!

Motivation is not anywhere else. It resides within yourself. You are the source of your own success in life. If it was not for you yourself then you would not have succeeded and lived so many years. Life gives you very few opportunities to be Brave and show Courage, if one misses this chance than he is not worth it. Courage is the best ally one can possibly ask for.

Life or Fate is fair most of time in throwing things at you. Life would never throw something that you cannot face it with Courage and overcome it. Even to acheive the love of your life you have to be brave enough to approach it, face the nerve wrecking moment and win it. One of my loved one says – “One Man With Courage Makes Majority”

Face Life With Courage Within.
