I have a new address on the web now, http://www.iamanand.com/ :)
Do check out my new blog also.
Hi everyone, I am back. :) It was nice to see such a response for the first post. Thanks for the encouraging words. Every bit of it helps. :)
Since I had promised (I am cursing myself now :) ) to share my experiences (good or bad) with you, I ought to share this incident with you as well (oh my god, I am nervous).
I am sorry I wont be able to jot down what happened but as they say “pictures speak a thousand words”, let me see if it does, this time too.
Does it give you a hint? Can you guess what exactly happened? Lets hear it from you. Don’t worry I will give you the whole story in the next post.(bacha lo bhagwan!)
So keep watching.
See ya all. :)
Yeah, finally I have a blog. Its been a long time since I have been toying with the idea of jotting down my journey towards the unknown (yeah, that’s my blog title, too :)). And what better day to get started than the 60th Independence Day of our motherland, India.
As I write this post I am sitting in my cubicle (I dare call it so!) in the office. Yeah, you read it right, we don’t have any holidays but that’s ok with me. The attendance is pretty low and honestly speaking its been a little hard to motivate myself today and hence this post (thank god!).
Mother India has always held a special place in my heart (though some would disagree as they feel that I am heartless :)). Since childhood I have been attracted towards anything patriotic, be it songs, movies or anything. I love watching acts of patriotism and at times I do curse myself as to why I am not doing anything for my motherland.
Its good to see that the generationext (am in that group, too… though some of my colleagues would strongly object, as they feel I belong to the rung below that :)) But even after all this, we still come across communal differences and conflicts. We, the young generation should realize our duties towards mother India and erase such hypocritical approach from our young minds. If young India is free of such absurd mindset then only we will have an Independence Day when we can say with our heads held high – “HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY” – Yes, that would be our 1st real independence day because Indians would become independent of out-and-out bogus thoughts. I still cant believe people hating a particular society or class. I have a question for all such pathetic people out there – What is the religion of our motherland where we all live in, what is the caste of the air that we all breathe? I am afraid none can be answered. The day we all realize that such questions only have one common answer would we become a TRULY INDEPENDENT INDIA.
I gotta roll out of the office for today.
Signing off. :)
Jai Hind…… :)
Update: After just 5 mins. of sharing this post with my colleagues, our facility manager (facman:)) came up with this on the chat box….
“Ai mere pyare watan ai mere bhicre chaman tujpe dil kurban
tu hi mere aarzoo tu hi mere aabru tujhpe dil kurban
maa ka dil ban ke kabhi sine se lag jata hai tu
ya phir naani se beti ban ke yaad aata hai tu
jitna yaad aata hai mujhko utna tarpata hai tu
tujhpe dil kurban
tere daman se jo aaye un hawaao ko salam
chum lu mein us juba pe jispe aaye tera naam
sabse pyari subha tere sabse rangi tere shaam
thujpe dil kurban”
Thanks Hardeep Bhai for such a wonderful song… :)
