“Can i meet MS Dhoni ??” Yes, this is the question that makes me mad again and again! Well, It is every Indian’s dream to meet Captain Cool once in their life time. he has been an Inspiration to millions and a role model for his achievements that how he turned his life from Ticket Collector to BEST Captain and what he did for India in his era.

Anchor : ” Do you guys believe in any superstitious in the dressing room or before Entering to the field ??”

MSD : ” Everyone has their own belief, and **he messaged something in the ear of Dwayne Bravo**

Anchor : What is that MS, Audience wants to hear that message too”

Madikeri: Paradise on earth

According to me the best way to relax is to go for a trip to a place which is full of greenery, free from pollution and which can bring calmness to our mind, So in our leisure time of our busy life we should definitely go for a journey, when i heard the word ‘Journey’ the first thing that strikes mind is hill stations. Yes then we planned for a trip to Madikeri, It is located on the southern part of Karnataka, usually named for its beautiful hill stations, temples and water falls across the city.

Yes, its a journey to Madikeri and we went to the most beautiful temple “Golden Temple”  It’s the largest Tibetan Settlement in Southern India and monastery locally called “Golden Temple”, in Bylakuppe, near Kushal Nagar, Madikeri. After a sumptuous breakfast we set off our sojourn to Golden Temple,

During this journey we came across some good sceneries which are feast to eyes & can not be found in any other part of India, the major attraction in that temple is the Temple and the people around there. When we entered the temple we find many saints were praying and some were in meditation with lord Buddha, We took some blessings with those saints and enjoyed the inner beauty of the temple, it was a spectacular sight of glittering designs, after taking some snaps  & spending some time in the temple, we came outside and we can shop for Tibetan handicrafts, decorative and religious items.

As it is just one day trip we set off on the last leg of our trip to Omkareshwara Temple, It is a beautiful temple which located In the middle of Madikeri, built in a Mohammedan style, which is famous for its beauty its worth watching. we enjoyed our time there. by seeing the beauty of these temples, i was really dumb founded. I never saw such wonderful temples and sights.

The ambiance over there was so pleasing that i didn’t feel like leaving the place. then we boarded to our bus and came back to our place after a day long sojourn to madikeri.

this gives me pleasure and reinforced my Activeness. Its a place which can bewitch you and yet can make you bow to its charms 🙂

Time goes but Memories doesn’t!

“Can I go back to my Childhood days ? “ – the same questions rewinds me again and again, whenever I saw a Smiling child, Playing kid, Chit chats at the bus stand etc which h brings those enormous energy & naughty kid inside us.

Well, it gives me the goose bumps whenever I revisit to childhood days of my life no matter whatever may be the occasion or the situation is!

One things I wish to share here is the celebration of festivals, that too Ganesha Festival was the stand out ONE, in that celebration days the last day that is, the visarjan day was the best day for our gang to bring out the best in us in the form of dance, style, stunts, masti and splashing colors many more . it just a dream for me to think about those moments, really missing them.

Its on Wednesday night around 11pm I am in my office cab with 2 of my colleagues and the manager and we were struck in the traffic. The manager was call a business call and I felt something is happening on the road and put my head outside the window and I can hear the desi beats where smile splashes automatically on my face, yes it was Ganesha Visarjan was going on!

DSC01577

And my mind and heart started went down to my memory timeline and started to soak me in the beats , dance and whistles of the visarjan event, when our cab started moving towards it and the beats sound getting louder and my mind started involving into the rhythm & without knowing myself I started enjoying myself by shaking my head and top sound from my legs! It surely forgets me where I am ! when I soaked completely in that beats, I didn’t even notice when I reached my flat! With the same mode I went to sleep, and had a good sleep I say!

The next part is quite interesting when I reached office in the next day morning, my manager gave a little smile when said good morning to him, and I started working as usually by opening my lappy, and my colleague who sits next to me had a big naughty smile on his face and said good morning to me, I was surprised to see the different gestures from my manager and my colleague, I asked my colleague for the reason, and he told I was completely turned on my masti mode yesterday and whistled twice in the cab for the beats which were coming from the Ganesha visarjan event!  Then me with wide open eyes laughed a bit and told him that it was not me, its the memory that present within myself.

“That’s the POWER of my Childhood Memory” 😛

Yes! In this way my childhood memory has bring a smile on my colleague’s face 🙂

Thank god! That was a Dream…

Well, that was the day where every engineering student is dreamt of; it was the day which I waited from the day when I joined engineering.  Yeah, it s the campus recruitment day and yes it’s the D-Day too. It was the first MNC Company to visit our college for recruitment. We all students were equally excited as our college!

And yes we had prepared well with the helpful guidance from our college placement department and we already aware that the Interview process has 3 rounds! Written test: Technical round: and Final HR round!

I had group of 8 friends, all are eagerly awaited to get into the company and we all were prepared well 100/100 for it! And we reached college on time and juniors welcomes us warmly & wished Good luck to each and every one!  And in the very next minute my sir called my name and told me take my seat for the written test in front of the PC, and the time was 60 mins for the written test, It started well and with few head scratches I did well with the written test and we all 8 friends were happy with each and everyone’s efforts! Immediately after the test we were directed to sit in the auditorium for the results! With some holding on some nerves my names was called 2nd in the list and I am on cloud 9 but I knew that the it wasn’t over. I need to do well in the next rounds, when I come out of that happiness mode; I was shocked with the result that 2 of my friends were not shortlisted for the next two rounds! Without waiting for next minute they were instructed the shortlisted students to enter the Interview rooms, and I was called inside for the technical round and it took me around 40-45 mins and I am extremely happy with my efforts. In the mean time remaining my 5 friends were also done with their 2nd round!

After waiting some hardly two hours we were called for final HR round and before entering room we corrected our shirts and the tie, and the good thing that I was the 1st to call for the final HR round, and I entered the room with pleasant smile and sat on the chair with seeking the permission of the HR! but I noticed some weird thing in the eyes of the HR, without being asked any questions my body started feeling the heat and sweat starts on my face, without waiting for next second my hands touched my face to clean the sweat and it touched the beard…. OMGrrrrrrrr….  Ooops it was a Dream!!!

I wake up suddenly and Shockingly saw the time and it’s just 5am, hmmm i pampered myself and realized that i have Gillette, then immediately I rushed to my bathroom and took out my new Gillette blade and shaved neatly for the interview day, well I am relaxed and realized that, it was just a dream that what I saw!

With a neat clean shave I attended the interview on that day and you know the result of it, finally out of  my 8 friends 4 were selected to the company including me and we were working here in the same company!

Thanks to Gillette for the quick help and making me to show the value of small things that can make the big differences!

Education- Much needed one!

Hunger and Education are the two main drawbacks of India which pulling down from reaching the top in development! The problem arises when people think about daily needs and money, this is the major issue in a country like India where it’s fully loaded with middle class and low class people where they have work daily for their daily wages! In this case they first concentrate on FOOD that is only the present, rather than education which is future part. When they are in this dilemma we should help them realize the facts and should let their children to give education and we should make them to understand that education should bring fruitful returns in terms of better life, adaptability and the supremacy of human race over the other!

The need of an education is very important as per the development of children in terms of physically as well as mentally; it will build a confidence and make them to understand the present world and the future of their life so they can able to live their rest of the life without being slave to poverty!

The main thing which pulling out basic education is poverty, where it kills internally as well as externally to the people and try to erase the fate of an individual’s, it will be a nightmare for the some children’s to see the step of schools but being a educated people like us and the big organizations as to come forward and join the hands to eradicate poverty in terms by creating an awareness by spreading the fruitiness and significance of education!

The majority of people were poor and they send their little children to work without giving an education just for the sake of living. Well this is the one of the demotivating factor that they think only about the present but education does the future to them! With the ability of education we can get connected to the world and establish ourselves in the society and will leave a mark for the next generation to follow up!

People has to realize the power of education and significance effects on education by letting them to feel the value of education and how it will reward to them  in future!

Let us join the hands together and spread the awareness to make India Educated and poverty free.

I am going to #BlogToFeedAChild with Akshaya Patra and BlogAdda.
