Our life is divided into many phases. The most important is the learning phase. During this time we are dedicated to learning and nothing else. Our parents expect us to learn more than what they did. This is the time when we gather friends which we often find in different places throughout the journey of life. So this phase is more important to me. I have more experience of this phase and I haven’t tasted the other phases. :wub:
This learning phase is further divided into Pre-primary, Primary, Secondary, higher Secondary, Graduation and Post Graduation. This is the system in India. Pre-primary I was too young and I can’t remember anything about that stage. Well there is one thing I do. My mother with a stick in her hand. I am crying… I don’t wanna go to school….Due to this whenever I see a picture of Goddess Durga, I picturize my mother. The stick being her sword.
Then comes the Primary. I was too much shy during this time. I hardly remember my friends and rare to meet the ones I know. I remember my class teacher giving me a paper with a speech written on it. I was told to memorize it and read it in front of all the students of the primary. That is during the assembly hour. I was so nervous that I forgot my speech. My teacher who was besides me relieved me, encouraged me. She told me to read the speech from the paper. My voice was hardly audible. She continued to give me written speeches and my voice was oud enough to be heard. By the end of my Primary school I was very confident in giving speeches. Continue reading →
Wishing someone is a good sign. A good feeling and one must wish. It reflects that you have the heart and a heart that admires success. I learned this over a long period and now I apply this in my day to day life. I never hesitate to wish even to a stranger. Although I don’t wish everyone on any occasion. There are occasions when I avoid wishing probably things that are to be done with bad intentions.
As I said I cannot wish everyone, I am now in trouble. How can I wish success to a lawyer who is specialist in divorce or a criminal lawyer? How can I wish someone who opens a shop for coffins? And now this friend. This friend is homeopathic doctor. He was my classmate for a long time and we met recently in strange situation. Yeah… in a hospital where my niece was admitted. I was relieved when I saw him as I was nervous. I didn’t show that on my face so as to support my brother.
Now after a year he opens a clinic in town. We happen to live in the same town. On one side I would love to wish him success in his profession but on the other side I don’t. Wishing him success means I wish that more people should fall sick, get ill and go to his clinic. That is not what I want. On the other side I want him to succeed as he is a friend.
I remember our school days when he was very quiet fellow. Never used to talk to someone and behave like an alien. He was good at studies though. Then in higher secondary he topped in first year but lost his marathon in second year so much so that he got less marks than me. Still I knew he would do great. And here he is. He has changed over the time and now he talks. I was kind of surprised when I saw the invitation and felt good at the same time. I plan to go for the inauguration. If everything goes right..
Hmmm… I can wish him that he cures all the patients that go to his clinic.
Way back when school was school and not a way to earn money, there was a lot discipline in the schools. I remember my school days. I studied in a christian school where discipline injected in our bloodstream. You can compare that with the military training. Schools too can discipline as effectively as the cadets or soldiers in military. The dumb students or those sitting at the back of the class surely think school as military camp.
Being late in school was never allowed. I hardly saw anyone coming late to school. When there was someone then that student has to take a long walk towards the principals office. To be frank, Our school was in discipline just because of our principal. There was a fear for him in my mind till my last year in school when he taught us maths. He always asked me for the answers and my answers clicked often. And throughout the school life I never heard that question.. “Why are you late??” Continue reading →
Oops. Spelling mistake. I wanted to write dogs. Search engine will like that. :p Getting to the point, I don’t like dogs. They are good when they are friend with me. Otherwise they keep running after me. Especially the pet dogs. There is a saying in Hindi which means “Every dog is a lion in his area”. It is true. I am not afraid of lions. That’s because I never faced them. 😀 But these dogs are dangerous.
On the other side I like dogs when they are puppies. The cute looking and very friendly innocent puppies. They remember the smell of a person. So if I go after sometime they’ll not run after me. They know I am a good boy. So whenever there is a new pet in your neighborhood just go and be friend with the pet. That way you are sure that he’ll not be after you. Precaution is better than cure.

This is a special plant. I love this. There is no specific place for this plant to grow. It’s anywhere and everywhere. I have this attraction towards this plant which made me blog about it.
I remember when I was a kid. (I do remember somethings) =] . Me and my friends use to kick these plants and they used to close as usual. The instant closing was the part of attraction. Later realizing that it just needs a touch. Nothing more. So saved some energy by just touching it instead of kicking. The “Who closes more??” competitions.
This used to happen while going to school. And while coming back the plants revert back to original. Only to be closed by us again. 👿 The goats in area also loved this plant. It was their favorite food. Now the things are different. This little plant has disappeared from roads. And I hardly see any kid attracted towards this plant if at all they find one.
This plant also posses a beautiful flower. It’s soft and pink in color. Though odorless the flower suits the plant and makes it complete. Today after so many years I saw this plant. A smile on my face and I bent down to touch it. Just refreshed my old memories.
It is still a shy plant. Glad to see one of the thing that will remain as is forever. :kiss:
