The "Sick" Human Mentality

I have often heard many people saying or rather in the last few days over heard many of them say "Success has changed him".But how often do those people who say that look at themselves and say I guess I have changed !!!It's amazing how so many people react towards you once you have acheived something,the things which they would have themselves wanted.Some Mock you,Some see you with suspious eyes and there are some who just don't want to talk to you any more ......

Even if you do the usual things which you did everyday,the things that would have got completely unnoticed before "success" happened to you....those things just get blown out of proportion and you are seen as if you have some kind of a "Attitude Problem".It's just completely silly and frivolous and it almost got to me untill a conversation with a dear friend just calmed me down.Two Simple sentences were said....

1.Those who say those things are'nt your "true friends" ....'
2.Such things should be heard from one ear and taken out from another :)

Such Things are all petty issues,I know...but it just goes to show how others change so drastically when they see someone who they think is inferior to him acheive so much and then how jealousy sets in..In some Cases though.... people do Change but I have'nt's others who have....I would like to conclude with something my mother said to me when I discussed this with her.A Simple 5 letter Sentence

huh !! Weird ....

I was busy writing assignments in college which is one of the most boring things in Engineering.It could be "the most boring thing" in engineering but that's for the "Intelluctuals" to debate on .I had run out of assignment pages as usual and needed some help and who better to help than the "punctual" girls in our class :P.So I asked my classmate to just ask for some assignment pages from one of my "girl friends".To my surprise ,he asks me...kya naam hain uska?? !!! you don't know her name ???...He then replied ...Mujhe kissi ka bhi naam nahin pataa ....!!!
Now I know most of them may not be as "modern" and beautiful as you want them to be :P but atleast you should have some amount of knowhow about some of them:P.Hearing him I recalled a similar conversation I had with my Tuition mate while coming home from class.He said while signing on the attendence sheet he just checked all the "female names" in the list :P and found out that he did'nt know half of them .....
I wonder what's that down to ....Guyzz not interested in average looking girls or is it the case with most of the heterosexual men of the 21'st century ....hmm ...Guess that's also for the "intellectuals" to debate on :D

The Holi Past and The Unhol(y) Present ???

Holi is round the corner. Rather it's Holi today...but there is not much noise as it's supposed to be a "Choti Holi".As I type this I see from my window a bunch of kids throwing plastics filled with water at each other. I can see a kid throwing, aiming plastics with all his might and then quickly running in the opposite direction fearing a backlash from his friend who he attacked just a second earlier. Seeing them have fun, I dwell, down past memory lane at my "Holi" Days and the ordeals that came with it.

The Night before Holi, we and my Grand mum ... yes my grandmother too :P used to make water balloons for us.... we used to give her a helping hand in making around 50-100 water baloons.And 10 years ago there used to be no plastics used ....Water balloons were the need of the day :P.These water balloons were then stocked inside a Bucket Full of water and kept inside the bathroom.

The Holi morning arrived and around 7.30 - 8.00, the Bucket was dragged in our balcony and then the fun used to start .Any Tress-passerby was a victim of our balloon attack: either used to hit his head or it used to fall ahead or behind of him. The instant Reaction was to look up and see who hit him .We obviously used to hide away from the man. This thing Continued up till 9 in the morning.

It was then time to go down and play holi with Friends inside the society. In my one hand there used to be a plastic Bag full of Water Balloons and in another, there used to be colours or Gulal.It used to be the same with my friends ...except that they brought some chemical stuffs with Gulal and all. As soon they used to see me they used to Run Behind me to make me a "Holi" Mess. To Burst Atleast 2-3 Baloons on me.Whereever they could was all they wanted. On one of such occasions my balloons would just refuse to burst...So one of my friends would just stop in front of me and say ...Chal abb maar!!! :P...It was so Juvenile during Childhood that you laugh now thinking about it.

The Fun used to continue for around 3-4 hours up till 1 in the afternoon. Mom used to shout from the Balcony but we obviously wanted to have more fun: D

Holi they say now-a days has become dangerous and all and some are even calling for its Ban. Well for me it's all about the mind-set. If you are going to tell these kids who are now playing in my society ... they are all going to give a damn!!! ..These guys just want to have loads of fun.Holi should be taken in the right Spirit and not be reduced to some kind of moral policing.Yess I know that there are many people who have lost their eye sights and many other things because of some idiots who have an "Holi Excuse”. But the thing to remember is that these guys aren’t playing holi that time. They just indulge in what I would call as a "Naughty Activity/Excuse" which should be banned for sure. Ban those sought of Activities.Yess...But let the Spirit of Holi Prevail and no kind of Ban will help in either stopping those idiots or for that matter those kids playing holi right now in my society. As they say..... Buraa Naa Manoo......HOLI HAIN!!!!!!!!

The Different Phases of Life

I have heard different people saying things like "This a very Bad Phase that I am going through" or vice versa.I never have quite understood what they actually meant.But in these past 7 or 8 days it has completely dawned upon me.It is actually said when one person gets loads of failures or loads of success at one time.When he/she gets more than what he asked for or more than what he/she actually deserved.

These last Seven Days infact the last 30 days have been absolutely crazy.Phone gets stolen in a bus,I Get Calls From Acquintances,A Renowned M.N.C recruits me,I throw a Party,500 rupees goes out of my Pocket,And now to Top everything....I get a 62 % in semester 5 and am possibly in the TOP 5 of my class which I never could have possibly thought :P...Don't know about a good phase but Gee's if there would have been a term coined as "A Mad Phase" Mine would have been it :P

This has to be my greatest ever phase in my life but I must also remember that there is a bad phase in store for me somewhere in the future.It's not that I have'nt seen a bad phase.I have seen my brother go through one terrible bad phase.He though came out of that and how !!! It's really the bad phases in your life that test your character,how good are u as a person and how well you can cope with the failures in your life.Having said that though A Good phase does not mean that you fly in the 7'th Heaven and be in Cloud no :9.Good phase comes to remind you two things

1.It tells you,Look son I have Come to give you happiness,JOY you always Craved for ,JOY that you probably deserve,C'mon Son Keep it up and
2.It also reminds you, Son enjoy this till it lasts because failure seems to be around the corner,haunting around you,Ready to pounce whenever you put one wrong foot.

So all you people Craving for some Success,Some Joy in Life should all hold fort.There will be several such occasions where Success will come Calling.There are going to be Constant Failures along the way that will Continue to Haunt you,make you cry,but if you try and have some Faith in which ever holy Force you believe in, Success won't be Far Away

The Perks Of Success

A Lonely and a lost Soul
Wandering around the college Corridor
Nobody seems to give him a stare
He too does not ask for more.

Suddenly Success comes knocking
Virtually out of no where
The Eyeballs all of a sudden increase
Now most of them seem to care.

Some appear lost and confused
But majority want to Celebrate
For one's outstanding Success
Which they would have themselves craved.

The Handshakes also Increase
And Respect goes to an all time high
Some take it very Sportingly
Some have an Emotional Cry.

They all say in Unison
Mooh Meetha ho jaye
You have done us all proud son
Jo hum kabhi naa kar paye.

I am Enjoying these Perks Of Success
But My feet are on the ground
As You never know,when Failure Comes Calling
And takes away your shining Crown.
