now, it's time for an outing...

at last, after meddling with my simulation code, scratching my head, and too many times hitting my table with fist... at last.. at last.. my code has given some results.. god knows they are correct or not..
starting to my homeland.. meeting my good old friends.. having a get-together with college friends.. and most importantly spending good amount of time with my parents.. are in my itinerary..
so, i am free now for 10 days..

a beautiful evening with rain...

whole last week, it rained almost every evening... one fine evening, i went to sanky road park near our insti along with two of my friends... it's a beautiful place to spend the evening sitting at tbe bank of the pond located there...
at one end of the park, we saw a boy and a girl cuddling each other without caring others as if they are the only two persons living in this world... it's an awesome view... leaving aside the issues of 'what is happening to our culture and discipline??' stuff, i felt it is an example to show how beautiful the ph(r)ase "mad(e) for each other" could be...
in no more than 10 minutes, clouds started gathering and a big rainbow is formed connecting one end of the pond to the other end... wow!! it's so romantic!!! it started raining heavily with thunders... perhaps, clouds are showing their joy of colliding each other in the form of thunders...
we started from there on our bicycles drenching in the rain... it's so cool riding bicycles in heavy rain.. we headed towards our tea-board (most happening place of the insti. where you can always find so many beautiful gals.. of course, with their boy friends) and ordered tea.. the taste is so good... after having enough fun there, we started walking from there... and one by one others followed us sharing the joy of wetting in the rain...

learning to do things better...

I walk down the street.
There is a hole.
I don't see it.
I fall in.
It isn't my fault.
It takes a very long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is still a deep hole.
I pretend not to see it.
I fall in.
I pretend it's still not my fault.
It takes a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is still the same deep hole.
I see it.
I fall in anyway.
It's a habit.
I get out quicker this time.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole.
I see it.
I walk around it.
I don't fall in.

I walk down a different street.

the enjoyment continues...

so far, this summer is going cool.. made some progress in searching literature for my project.. learned to float for a while in swimming pool.. trying my hand at volley ball and strengthening muscles at gymkhana.. i feel iisc is the best place to spend summer.. particularly, when you have no urgent work to submit.. and i am sure.. this enjoyment continues.. as long as i am here..

first day in swimming pool...

at last i have joined swimming club yesterday after many repeated postponements. i have never been into a pool not even a small canal. we reached the pool early in the morning to have a glimpse of some pretty women already there, just as an additional advantage of joining swimming club ;-)
well.. i felt like a rat in a tub of soup.. didnt know how to swing legs, splash water and move forward.. it's really wonderful to try whatever that comes into mind.. enjoyed a full hour seeing that many new comers are there like me.. hope i can become a good swimmer soon..

when there is no work...

exams are completed.. it's time to relax.. three days are gone without any work. what shall i do? simply roaming around the campus roads and enjoying the scenery.. well, i've got one more day to spend happily..
getting a cable connection, joining swimming classes, burning some calories at gym, reading novels, and catching new movies.. these are the short term goals set for my enjoyment.. but, still it will be so boring without any work..
how nice it would be if life is just a holiday!!

my life at iisc...

iisc.. indian institute of science.. dream place for many who are interested in research.. totally covered with beautiful trees all over and seasonal flowers everywhere.. one cannot help but wondering at the natural beauty of this place.. so cool, so pleasant, and really awesome.. people work day and night just like in hell.. wide variety of attitudes can be seen here starting from highly perturbed to extremely stable.. but, one thing is common in all.. these are the best brains of the country and world..
i have joined here with my AIR 2 in GATE imagining that my stay over here will be like a bed of flowers and i can enjoy two long years like anything.. but, things turned out to be the reverse.. right from the first week of classwork, my prof's started giving shocks. day by day, my confidence levels dropped to ground level and then ultimately to a deep valley.. gone.. i stood as a five pointer in first sem.. started thinking about what happens to my future? but, as the days passed, i started digesting the fact that achievements can come only through some hardships.. another semester is finished.. and now, i feel proud to say.. i am a student at iisc..
iisc.. it's just the hell.. but still so pleasant and beautiful..

life is beautiful... isn't it?

most frequently asked question... "how is life?" instantaneous reply is "it's just going?" do we really ask ourselves where it is going? do we really have an answer for that? if life is just going, why do we let it go just like that?
well.. i feel that the very cause of our disappointment lies in our perspective of life. after all, the world is how you look. all of us are blessed with some or other inherent ability to succeed in life. but, most of the time, we didn't realise that the very purpose of life is to enjoy life than just let it go with no effort. is there any solution for this? yeah, may be a simple realisation can do. what matters most is how you see yourself. we can look at ourselves coming out from ourselves and analyse the things, find the root cause of our problem and act in a constructive way. there are many more things in life to get involved and relish the taste. beauty of nature, poetry, music, movies, kids, and ultimately ourselves.
don't you think life is beautiful??
