Time passes very quickly. It’s been a month since I posted. Frankly speaking, I didn’t realize it’s been that long. It just seems yesterday. While skimming through my diary, I found a poem. It’s not by me. I may have found it on some newspaper or magazine. It’s my habit to keep such pieces together in one diary. Credit to the original writer. A message to everyone…
One day I was thinking what is life,
A sweet girl told me love is life,
My friends told me faith is life,
And my mother told me courage is life,
I was puzzled in search of life,
In a dream, an old man appeared,
“Don’t waste your time adding three or four
Time is less and work is more
Life is a name of mix and naught.
Some things are, valuable and short,
The longest life at death must end.
Your length of days, can’t extend.
So search for ever, never to fail,
If you fall, then don’t recall,
If you are fair in your role,
You will soon achieve your goal.”
He said this and disappeared……..
Now I knew life is sweet.
Which money can never buy.
Honesty is the best policy. Remember this quote? When I was in my school, back in fifth standard I was thought this. It’s not just me but the whole class. Some followed this way and others didn’t. I am among the ones who followed the honest path. Those who are honest by now know that it’s very difficult to be honest. For me it’s creating not just problems but troubles.
I see peoples choosing the “other path” for the sake of success. And success for them is merely measured in terms of the green color. The more they have it the more successful they are. The “other path” you take may seem smooth at start but as you proceed it will get difficult. This is very opposite to the honest path.
When you work on honest path you get troubles and admirers too. This comes from my job experience. I worked hard. Everyday I had sweat bath. I lost my sleep. I lost my interests. I was distanced from my friends. All for the sake of this job. I kept telling myself.. “Just for another few days and things will get easy.” When that time came, I was accused of taking bribe.
This was the first time in my life someone said like this to me. I couldn’t stand it. I decided to quit the job. To my goodness, I got a suspension before quitting the job. I should have quit at the moment I was accused. Though I was given an option to work on another site by my employer, I didn’t. I lost my faith and trust in him.
Later on I found out that he recruited three freshers for the salary he used to pay me. Three for the price of one?? I was happy with my decision then. He is not the person whom you can trust. He doesn’t want to build a team but wants workers whom he can use and throw. He wants peoples who can dance the way he wants. I am surely not one of such.
Though happy with my decision, I felt very bad on losing the job. This was my best performance ever throughout my career. I wanted to work more here and learn more. It was not written in my faith. Sometimes I get a question, Is it worth working hard? The next moment the question disappears with answer “it is”. I look back and see myself working hard in tough conditions in a hope for better tomorrow. I end up jobless and being called as workaholic fool.
Good things to take were the good peoples who worked around me. I got many admirers who appreciated my work. I loved working with these people who worked hard. I wish to work with them again. With that hope I look forward…Who knows!!! Something great is waiting for me as I already have tasted goodness. 🙂
The world today revolves around some shit of paper called money. Everything, well almost everything, can be bought with money. Some say emotions cannot be sold. But what about the ones we watch in movies? They are emotions. They reflect on us. We laugh, we cry, we are happy, we are sad when we watch movies. So in a sense emotions also have a price tag.
So what will happen to this world without money? Just imagine the world without money. While picturizing this you may get horrible pictures if you are a businessman or a banker. On the other side, one who is poor will be happy. There is no money and he doesn’t have to worry about money now. But will the life without money really remove poverty? That’s a question I cannot answer. Continue reading →
Confused. By this time you have read this word four times already. That much is the confusion I have. I was confused whether to start with just confused or confused with three question marks. I am confused again and I think I am putting you in a confusion also. I can’t help it. I am confused a lot.
This is my condition for last three days. A simple conversation between me and one of my acquaintance that happened at an annual meeting. Usually such conversation never affect me but it’s strange that this time it’s not the same. It struck me like a sharp edge of a blade. Now that gives pain.
Topic started with what I do? He wasn’t aware of my qualification. He jumped just because he was working under my friend who was my batch mate. That friend is a government servant. So do this acquaintance. In India, and I suppose anywhere around the world, if you have government job then you have a special value. An engineer like me is like a gem. It’s a different thing that I am still in the coal form.
He started to tell me about my friends success. How much he earns and all that stuff. I don’t care about that as it’s not much importance to me. And he kept talking about how an engineer as a government servant earns. After a peak point I got distracted. Is money all the thing?? Isn’t there value for anything else?? I earn a lot less than what my batch mates earn. And the relation Money=Success applies everywhere. So I felt I haven’t tasted success yet. That feeling gave me pain. Now I am getting confused. What next to do? Should I go after money or just continue my journey as is.
This success is not just important for me, but for my parents. They want me to be successful and like all other parents success for them is directly proportional to the amount of money you earn. Till date I never thought of working as government servant. It just suxxx. But now I may have to rethink.
Thinking while confused..
And still confused…
Just when I thought I will be blogging for fun from next month onwards I get this change. I was always looking towards that page rank for a long while and didn’t check it for last 15 days.

I’ve been trying to give professional touch to my blog by getting traffic, changing templates, the SEO things and all that stuff. Now most of the things stop here. Continue reading →
