Nostalgia

Remembering a friend...

Preamble The most helpful person I fathom heretofore and probably will descry --> AMIT(God – as he baptizes) Sirf naam hi kaafi hai

I hark back to the days ere the main exams in which he gave time to expound me the entire chapters, didn’t matter that his course himself wasn’t completed. A very cool person underneath who never takes tension. A crony who accompanied me to an unfamiliar city albeit it was only my need. Trusty and a true chum; not only for me but for all he befriended.

Traits A fanatic devotee whose matins revolve around Lord Shiva, believes in the dogmas of Swami Vivekananda. A person with strong willpower, who firmly believes in himself, is stoical and intrepid. Synonym of simple living and high thinking, believer of actions rather than words.

A scintillating person who lives in class and dignity, and has the capability of running minds faster than those who con. Is sporty but indolent but then very active. Cagey, coquette. Words may fall short for even his iota of goodness!

Love life Loves♥nature♥India. Besotted a wench since last eight years who dwells far away but never ever spoke with her…

Disclaimer The given idiosyncrasy is a tall story and bears no congruence with the person heeded. Any deviation from literal Amit if noted, please get him a line personally.

A Stranger in the Mirror




I had the opportunity of reading this novel... so I want to share my thoughts with you...




A Stranger in the Mirror (348 pages)
-Sidney Sheldon


Suspense, Intrigue and Passion from the World’s famous Storyteller


If you would seek to find yourself
Look not in a mirror
For there is but a shadow there,
A stranger…




Utterly compelling tale of steamy entertainment industry emotions, ambitions and machinations.


The story is about a journey of a thin, spindly-legged child, with a wistful face and the bright, gentian-blue eyes, Tobias Temple, to become the biggest star in the business, the world’s funniest man from a mere hundred dollar kid. He gets any women he wants. But underneath the callous super-stud image is a lonely man, desperate for attention, greedy for love.

Came a story of a little girl named Josephine Czinski, beautiful, sensuous who finds an escape from her religious home to become a part of the world filled with magic and beauty. But people there used her, hurt her, degraded her. She has a dark and mysterious past and an ambition even greater than Toby’s. She had wanted vengeance.

Together they rule the glittering kingdom of Hollywood until lust, jealousy and revenge turn triumph to tragedy in a nightmare scenario that rolls relentlessly on to a stunning, sensational climax…


'Fast moving… engrossing… Sidney Sheldon is a master at giving the public what it wants’.




Readers are free to share their experiences regarding the novel and other novels of the same author.

Destiny

When I was small I didn't know what was destiny... when I grew up, I always turned the pages of newspapers to see what was in store for me for that day(horoscope as you may know it) and yes believed in it... but today I look down upon those days as now I work to write my own destiny... Njoy!

Are You Romantic or Realistic?




You Are A Realist



When it comes to romance, you tend to take a realistic approach.

You believe that love takes time, and it's something you have to work hard for.

A bit cynical, over the top romance tends to get under your skin.

Your heart is difficult to win ... but it's totally worth it.

Network Analysis.... ..... can you solve this?

To all , who know how to solve the problems mathematically, something for you all.
Please solve it

Kirchoff's Current Law (KCL):
At every node, the sum of all currents entering a node must equal zero.


Kirchoff's Voltage Law (KVL):

The voltage law says that the sum of voltages around every closed loop in the circuit must equal zero.


Exercise :

Please apply Kirchoff's Current and Voltage laws to the following figures.

Donkey story: Shake it off and step up..!!


DONKEY


One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.



He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.


As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the
animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon,
everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of
the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to

getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.





Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less

Paradigm shift

Got this in a mail. Please express your thoughts on this...

Imagine you are at an Airport. While you're waiting for your flight, you notice a kiosk selling cookies. You buy a box, put them in your traveling bag and then you patiently search for an available seat so you can sit down and enjoy your cookies. Finally, you find a seat next to a gentleman.

You reach down into your traveling bag and pull out your box of cookies. As you do so, you notice that the gentleman starts watching you intensely. He stares as you open the box and his eyes follow your hand as you pick up the cookie and bring it to your mouth. Just then he reaches over and takes one of your cookies from the box, and eats it!

You're more than a little surprised at this. Actually, you're at a loss for words. Not only does he take one cookie, but also he alternates with you. For every one cookie you take, he takes one.

Now, what's your immediate impression of this guy? Crazy? Greedy? He's got some nerve? Can you imagine the words you might use to describe this man to your associates back at the office? Meanwhile, you both continue eating the cookies until there's just one left. To your surprise, the man reaches over and takes it. But then he does something unexpected. He breaks it in half, and gives half to you. After he's finished with his half he gets up, and without a word, he leaves.

You think to yourself, "Did this really happen?" You're left sitting there dumbfounded and still hungry. So you go back to the kiosk and buy another box of cookies. You then return to your seat and begin opening your new box of cookies when you glance down into your traveling bag. Sitting there in your bag is your original box of cookies – still unopened. Only then do you realize that when you reached down earlier, you had reached into the other man's bag, and grabbed his box of cookies by mistake. Now what do you think of the man? Generous? Tolerant? You've just experienced a profound paradigm shift. You're seeing things from a new point of view. Is it time to change your point of view?

Many a times, we are clouded by our own instincts and predispositions. These hamper our relationship with our peers, subordinates and superiors. Try to be non-judgmental and look beyond the obvious.
