Milestones – Why are they called so?

“He achieved another milestone.”

You hear such sort of statements after someone achieves something or someone succeeds in something. This something differs from person to person but the statement remains the same.

“And he is crossing milestones one after another.”

A question arises is why milestones only?? Do you know the reason??

Milestones are easy to get. You find them at every one mile distance. In international units its roughly 1.6 Km.When we achieve a milestone there is lot of hard work involved in it. We have the sweat dropping hours of work. Well the sweat dropping thing is not for the chefs and the ones related in food industry. You may get fired for dropping sweat there. :sideways:

The hard work we do cannot be compared to milestone. Milestones come every mile and they are easy to get. Unlike the success we get. It’s not everyday that we taste success. It’s a luxury. Comparing success to milestone is just not the respect and honor for the person’s work. Do you think success is like a milestone?? It always appears after every mile that we travel?? At least don’t include me in that list.

So what’s the alternative word for this? There is no perfect one. But I guess there’s a need to find for an English word. May be I am just not aware of the word. :wub:

Till you reach another milestone…

Car pile-up

On express highways, you often find car pile-up. That is obviously due to the very high speed driving. Just a fraction of brake can end up with a pile-up. I have personally seen one. Not a huge one. The one I remember most is from a movie named Final Destination 3. It doesn’t look exaggerated in spite of being fictional. There is one more type of car pile-up.

I haven’t seen cars piled up in such a fashion. Most of the times, Cars moving from factory to showroom are transported via lorry in horizontal position and tied to the base. Hats off to the above “creative” risky idea which may end up in real pile-up.

Till you think a crazy idea…

My Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic

I was waiting for this phone for last four months. Finally I bought it on Saturday. Now that I used it for three days, I can write a review. My earlier phone N72 was great. I miss that phone. I exchanged it for this mobile. Though this mobile is much better than N72, I still miss that phone. May be the moments I captured with that phone are priceless. Lets not drift to this. This review is my frank opinion as an owner and end user. I am not paid for this review at all. :angel:

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

I opened the box and there was the beauty. The back cover is not as good as other Nokia mobiles. It’s difficult to remove and insert the battery. At least for the first time. Sliding cover would have been great. When I switched it on, It started fast. Faster than other Nokia mobiles with 1GB+ memory card. There are only three buttons on front. Receive, Reject and the white one for menu. No more buttons on front. Coool…

The next step was to insert SIM and memory card. Both can be inserted easily via slots provided on side. One thing I didn’t understood. Why there was need to provide a side slot for SIM?? This Sim cannot be removed without opening the back cover. So whats the use of the side slot? It’s better and safe within the mobile. About the memory card, It’s 8GB. More than sufficient for me. It already comes loaded with Hindi and English soundtracks. A special album “Connections” by A.R.Rehman composed just for this phone. But not a good one. Other songs provided are really good. About 200+ tracks. Continue reading →

Time flies very fast

Today morning I woke up late. While in hurry to get ready and go for job, My eyes stopped on calender. It was 2nd February. Though I am aware of the dates and time everyday, I just stopped at calender. I couldn’t believe for a moment that one month of this new year has passed. It felt like last week was new year eve. But the calender shows something different. The bitter truth.

No one can control time. So do I. I felt like I wasted this whole month. I did nothing but just job, job and just job. I was still standing in front of calender. I cannot express that feeling in words correctly. But it was some kind of  bad feeling. I felt like I am turning into a robot who wakes up in morning. Goes to job. Comes back. Sleeps and repeats the whole cycle again.

Yeah!! In between those works I do the day to day mandatory stuff like eating, walking, brushing etc.etc. Other than that?? Well nothing. I got this feeling for the first time. I don’t want this again. I was like…. disturbed. Sigh… I walked towards bathroom for shower and the life cycle started again. Thank god.. It didn’t affect my work today.

I decided to blog about this and take out all the feeling. I reminded of Terminator. In this film those robots look very similar to humans. But they are from the future. I thought why future when we already are robots. We have become robot over the time. This everyday life cycle seems to be perpetual. I am not Arnold(My physic is the proof) and I don’t want to be like him. I am just good as Human being and not a robot. I cannot stop time but I will catch it’s speed. Soon. Very soon..

Till then..
