Sleepless Night

Did you ever experience of an evening and a night when you are physically drained by the day's work but you are unable to bring the very needed peaceful sleep? I often experience such nights where the mind becomes restless and yesterday was such night. Countless thoughts were racing and playing around my head making me sick. From work to home, family and friends to tight grip of money you experience at times, the night was seeming too long. The worst was thoughts about tomorrow being  work day after two days off; I had to be up by 5:00 AM for duty and missing the bus early in the winter morning isn't pleasant at all. These all jammed the very peaceful rest I needed and it was like what the hell? I grab the book titled"The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga which I borrowed from a friend with the hope of getting some six hours sleep which I  do normally. And it did solve my problem! I don't remember at what time the book was able to provide me much needed sleep, but it was already 04:45 when the alarm clock wake me up.

The past month wasn't really that smooth; there were so many constraints that was physically and mentally draining me out. Keep aside of writing new posts in my blog, I wasn't even able to read other's. Not all incidents in life are worth remembering or worth sharing, life is combinations of all these funny, good, memorable, sweet, sour and awkward moments. Some of these give us courage, some show us way forward, some make us ponder about the mistakes we made and how to go about with it, some strike us with unexpected surprises while some are just the coincidences. There are also incidents which rather demotivates and make us hate the moment we think about it. Even the work that I love so much was beginning to get less concentration and the usual up-to date that I was trying to keep (about the profession) began to fade. The thought and the promise to begin this glorious and galloping horse year with so much zeal and energy and with only good ones have suddenly suffered a struck stop and it has kept me wondering if these incidents at the very beginning of a new year foretells the very same throughout as BAD year? It is saddening when you are somehow dragged into that pool of unexpected controversies. Even more depressing is when you are dragged into that pool for which you are not even part of it and you have little connection with it.

Yet behind the curtains of all the bad and worst things, there still lies some unnoticed spare of the other part which is desperately waiting for our attention and if we notice that and are able to trim and care well that little spares which was once dumped, we find time to smile and celebrate- the much needed in the midst of hurdles.  Life isn't perfect for sure yet who does accept this fact? Being human we like only good things to happen, listen only to nice and flowery words. Often do we fail to realize that such SOLO things are impossible and that everything is but a refinement of the other.

With this I would like believe myself that so much lesson has been learnt from the preceding month and that I will take every possible steps to keep myself away from the bay of useless and helpless situations that only does more harm than good.

The GPL thing

If you are an engineering student in one of the engineering colleges of India, you would probably know what I am going to write about. GPL is one of the most prominent activities you will notice in the engineering college (I am not sure if it also exists in other colleges).  If you have birth day or if something good has happened to you, or get job, then you aren't escaped! You are treated even worse than the animal for a moment with hard leather belts, with slippers or even with rod of sticks until you have zebra crossings on your back. You don’t know whether to cry or to laugh. That is the immediate price of happening something good.
Nobody knows exactly as to how this GPL thing came into existence, but there isn't one who isn't aware of what happens in GPL. GPL stands for Gand Pe Laat. A friend of mine tells me that the concept of GPL originally started within a group of friends; when something good happens to one of the friend, others used to whip his ass (Gand) out of…

Thank You Mother Earth

A home for every existence A life of unlimited you nurture Fresh air and water, clean ambience The bound of kindness and patience You give, sustain and give And never are you fatigue Nor you restrain, rest or refuse Yet the greedy mind you gratify Wants more, exploits and doesn’t care
Here I stand healthy and walk with pride With all the luxurious glories of yours We know you can’t permanently give For this is the law you already know Wisely we shall use you and your wealth And advocate the message of early signs Which you displayed loud and clear Today, tomorrow or the next day We shall revive, protect and sustain
Thank you Mother Earth.....

13th October- Unforgettable Day

Life is strange you know.  So many things are happening and yet to us, it is the same and as usual. We hardly notice the change and the things that happen around us. Today is an important day for Bhutan and Bhutanese; a day to begin with prayer for long life of our king and queen; a day to celebrate over reminding ourselves that there is always hope with king and queen be side us at any cost.  I wish my king and queen a very happy wedding anniversary. May the land of thunder dragon always shine under your dynamic leadership and guidance! Unfortunately it was a bad and sad day for me! I nearly escaped deadly accident. I don’t know how many has been lucky enough just like me today at the very same time. Some are just so unfortunate.  Just yesterday before I went to bed, I had this very disturbing news from Perth, Australia about a brother of mine by relation who is studying under government scholarship. There was this very disturbing note by himself on Facebook, a heart breaking confess…
