It takes something special to get feature in the front page of the news paper for those things which I call it as PASSION! Yes, Playing cricket is become a passion in India. Of course we do play it from Heart as well.
Pranay Dhanawade achieved a lifetime in the history of cricket book.
Yes, Pranav Dhanawade of KC Gandhi School has scored 1009* in 323 balls against Arya Gurukul School, a feat never before achieved in any form of cricket’s illustrious history. His team declared their innings on 1465, another world record. Pranav’s knock consisted of 59 sixes and 129 fours, played at a strike rate of 312.38.
This is really a superhuman knock by Pranav, seems his father hard earned money by driving extra hours in the auto rickshaw. This really feels great that something is going to happen if we have the support and the effort we put into the game.
Yes, we had seen lot’s of applaud from all the cricket giants and as well as The Maharashtra government announced their decision to bear all coaching and education expenditures of the 15-year-old. Surely that’s the day that Pranav and his family are waiting. And Pranav has made it though.
Hard work never fails, it might get delayed but it never misses anybody. Just love your work and succeed in that. Everyone has to take this kid as inspiration and should think BIG and Work like this superhuman. 🙂
It takes few seconds for many of us to decide which is our favorite city, right??? But I am for that category, Yes, I do think if the question is about dream city. But no second thought for my favorite is concerned. And it’s undoubtedly the city which firmed in my heart and mind is my home town “Tumakuru”. Tumakuru, although located close to the famous cities in south India like Bangalore and Mysore. Tumakuru is yet to be completely explored. One has to DRIVE passionately to DESIGN the CONNECTIVITY to this unexplored place. 🙂
In spite of looking into other’s plate I always cherished to enjoy what I have at the moment. May be this is the reason that made me to consider my city as my favorite city as well I guess. Tumakuru is really a beautiful place. So I decided to check out my own, in other terms I am rediscovering this land. This place is very near and neighboring city to IT hub of India [Bangalore].
Though it does not have any history of kingdoms and rulers. But it weighs a lot when it comes to the places that it has, and those places must not be missed. Starting from Siddaganga Mata, Namada chilume, Devarayana Durga, Shivagange, Basdi betta and many more. All these places are abundance of rich flora and fauna. And few places back to the ages of the Ramayana, It is believed that Lord Rama shot his arrow to make a fountain(CHILUME) of water in the middle of the dense forest when he struggled to find water to put his NAMA (THILAKA) and Hence the place name NAMADA CHILUME . Like this each one has got unique identity with the history. This surely DRIVES anyone crazy and Impressive. 🙂
The DESIGN of this city is neatly matched and mattered as it is located In such a troposphere weather always mesmerizes with cool breeze to kick your day, chilled zesty sun in the afternoon and soothing air to sign off a day. 🙂
And the CONNECTIVITY is brilliantly established as we are just 70 kms away from Bangalore. The footprints of Bangalore to Pune NH4 are here. Brilliant Highway to DRIVE everyone crazy. And this is how it connects from South part of the people towards North of the state. The connection is here already only thing is that it has to enfold in a right way to attract people to make better visiting spots unlike the other cities. 🙂
Well, I could not stop admiring the calmness, luxury, lifestyle, cost of living, value of the city and add-ons it has. And it made a promise to myself to discover the secrets it has and many other cities in the south India as well. 🙂
” United we stand, Divided we fall ” We all grown by seeing this proverb. We all matured our lives by enhancing this proverb. And we must agree that its 100% true and universal 🙂
Our compassion for the things closer to life, fills our heart with the purpose, ultimately, embark on a journey full of life. Yes, I miss the good old days where I playing with full of family members, relatives and neibhours. New gang of friends when we visit to any fairs and festivals in our villages! Yes, those are the days where I fortunate to be lavished with the love of being unite and being together 🙂
The memories always stand tall and mesmerizes every time when we had a hop into it. The clear picture comes to mind when I thought of together in nature is, Honey bees in Honeycomb. Wah we must salute to its unity and its quality of life.
As I had some naughty gang of kids and you can call them partners in crime. 😛 Yes, I usually visit to my village in my summer holidays and its gonna be a trademark of fun and unlimited entertainment where there is no restriction of dad and mom. Where we can enjoy as much as we can with the enormous love of our grand parents!
And we were playing tree climbing game in the afternoon with my naughty gang of kids, may be I was at the age of 12 I guess! And we were drenched with the heat of sun and we were really tired by playing it where we started playing at morning 7am and its 3pm in the afternoon and game is still ON! You could imagine the stamina of us. Yes, it usually for those aged kids and at that moment! And we were in a need of some cold drinks In that time my chota friend showed the honeycomb and he explained the sweet of honey in his drool worthy style 😛
And we all started throwing stones towards that honeycomb/honeywell and there it begins the attack from the masters of bee. Hmmm! Its no way OUT… We never imagined of such number of honeybees in that honeycomb OMG! Is the only expression in all of us! And with gods grace we managed to escape from such a dangerous attack of honey bees! With lots of Hufffs and Puffs… then there we realized the real power of UNITY and how UNITY and being TOGETHER is worthy and helpful 🙂
Yes! It may be sounds less but its spot on and admirable. Don’t hear to any false statements and don’t go beyond it just be yourself and think it! Its true. Never lose your unity and never miss the quality of happiness that’s been hidden it. Its like a PURE HONEY present in the HoneyWell 🙂
We are living in a world where everything moving at a faster pace, become more modernised and materialistic. we have become a machine and always running after money. We wont get much time to relax ourselves and to think about our passion 🙂
As being an engineer all i had is Wake up late in the morning, Rushing to office without having break fast, Trying to complete the work before deadlines, preparing for presentations, Struggle in traffic and reach home in the late night with fully tiredness. Hmmm, yes it has become life cycle me. Always strive to complete other’s work but never tries to start my dreams, passion and what your Heart says ❤ . 😦 But the IT job is not securable that is the only issue which making me to think different. Moreover if i choose other job i should have to relocate to other citiies where i am FAMILY addicted, i never want to leave my parents alone.. but to keep my future clear and beneficial i should have to think different 😦 these questions on secure future has put me into the well of sadness and struggling present. 😦
For the goodness of me and my family and it is what my Heart suggested, i decided to take a break from my IT job and with the suggestions all my well wishing friends i took a bold step by deciding to get the Govt. job at any cost, but its not easy as what i said, its become impossible for me to shift from IT background to prepare for the government exams. with the support of my parents and the suggestion of my good friends with respect to my technical background i decided to preparing for the Bank exams as it’s a booming sector in India where technology is getting implemented day by day. and it’s become easy for me to clear the exam as i studied Two section’s out of four sections in the exam syllabus. 🙂
And i planned out well with a responsibility, motivation of friends and family i continued studying and practising the aptitude and finally i ended up by clearing two back to back banking exams and moreover i was SPOT ON in deciding to secured job rather than working in unsecured IT job 🙂 i was aware of the fact that if i got selected in any of the banks i would be get placed in my state only, and this made me to get off the worry of relocation and my worry of leaving my parents alone. 🙂
The BIG and a DIL KI decision which i took has made me to grab the Officer post in a nationalised bank and i am just 200 kms from my home town, So i can visit my home whenever its necessery, can enjoy happily with the parents on the weekends 🙂🙂
