Swimming lessons..

I have recently started going to swimming class n its so much fun.. :) um really enjoying them.. Its been 4 days till now..
1st day was really stupid,We were asked to walk around the pool to get the feel of water.. and then learned to make bubbles in the water.. breath in.. dip into water n breathe out.. thats it..

2nd day we learned to float with wall as support..

3rd day we floated with a small boat into the water.. then did it without any support..

4th day we learned to kick legs.. first with wall, then with boat and finally without anything.. and it gave me such a high.. i am in water kicking legs n without anything.. :) now those whi know swimming will know that by kicking legs you dont go forward... that will come later with arm movements.. but nonetheless i am so very excited about this whole swimming affair that i cant hide my excitement that i am finally learning how to swim.. :)

Shooting star

She lay on her back, facing the vast, dark, moonless sky. Watching the stars, numerous of them. There were two more stars tonight lying peacefulle on her cheekbones, just below her eyes. Their sparkle was more enticing than the pole star's itself.

In that lifeless night, she was not there to compete with stars for the brightest twinkle. She was waiting for a shooting star. She knew, then, her wish will come true. She desperately wanted to make a wish tonite. She was so desperate that she forgot to blink her eyes, leaving no chance to miss the shooting star's heavenly tail.

I am telling you a secret now, she wont see that shooting star tonight, because her wish is destined not to come true. For what she desires will never come to her. There are things in life, which you have to learn to live without. You have to bow your head and accept the things as they are. The sooner she realizes that, the happier she will be.

Will you ask her to let go of her desire? Will you ask her to accept the things as they are? I am only asking you to do this because i dont have courage enough to ask her myself. I dont think i'll manage to see her heart broken again. I dont think i'll stand there to see her tears again. I dont think i can bear her eyes on me, very still, with questions i wont be able to answer. I dont think i will be able to wipe her tears without having them myself.

I am her MIND.

A POEM i wrote before i wrote the above peice...

My heart is desperate
to get something,
MY mind already knows
I will get nothing.

Heart holds onto
a tiny ray of hope,
Mind doesnt care, for it knows
the difference between twig & rope.

Heart feels, cries,
emotes, wants, sympathise,
Mind sees only logic and reason
the only way to remain wise.

Heart always get hurt
time and time again,
Mind always gains experience
never feels the pain.

Now time's bidding
soon, one will outwin other,
and i'll rest in peace
with no confusions further..

beat this...

I am home again.. n this time for a week :) (now those who cant be at their homes.. dont feel jealous :P) My bus journeys are always the one to write abt.. my most memorable one so far happened this time.. we were abt 8 ppl from our coll, all going to delhi n all met at the bus station itself.. we played dumb cherades n antakshari on the way.. dumb charades is as always so much fun.. the opponent team was no doubt better than us.. they even cracked movies like "OOPS!" and "Zinda".. we lost by 2 movis.. :(( we cdnt crack "rudali" and "changez khan".. the person who was enacting changez khan was stuck on tellin us about khan.. nd thrugh sher... sher khan.. ab use khana khane se khan karna chahiye tha na... :( and in case of rudali it was worse.. we had decided to give this movie to opponent but they gave it to us before.. :(.. one person thought she is saying this movie but didnt said it aloud cos he thought we r givin it next time so shd utter it.. lol..
antakshari was so much fun.. in a public bus we are shrieking and shouting and making so much noise.. i wonder why dint anyone asked us to stop.. :) a few ppl who were irritated did sat farthest from us... but didnt asked us to stop... :)
And as always a bus journey cant be complete without a few interesting ppl..A very old chap bought his hukka with him and smoked through all the journey.. towards the end of journey ( after we entered delhi) got into bus and started singing bhajans in his pathetic voice... ( i guess we dint sing like that wen playing antakshari.. :)) though why was he singing became clear wen he started asking for money.. novel ways of begging.. he was a young boy nd if he wd just start doing some work,um sure he cd have earned much more... sometimes i wonder why do ppl give these ppl anything? there would be no beggars if no one was giving them anything..

hey btw can anyone help me?? my blog seems a li'l odd in 800X600 resolution,, the middle post part is very squeezed here.. i tried to give a fixed size to the centre part but then the right column got shifted to the bottom left side.. and moreover the pics i post are of length suitable to higher resolution.. on 800X600 the pics overlap over right column.. can anyone tell me how to fix these probs?? is there a way to make alterations so that my page has fixed width and at lower resolution i can slide the lower slider to view the right part of the page?

A wish i hope will some day come true :)

I saw this movie a few days back and when i saw this scene i wished it'll happen to me too.. someday..


The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"
"Is your Daddy home?" he asked.
"Yes," whispered the small voice.
"May I talk with him?"
To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."
Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?"
"Yes," came the answer.
"May I talk with her?"
Again, the small voice whispered, "No."
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked the child, "Is anybody else there?"
"Yes" whispered the child, "a policeman."
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked "May I speak with the policeman?"
"No, he's busy," whispered the child.
"Busy doing what?" asked the boss.
"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the firemen," came the whispered answer.
Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?"
"A hello-copper" answered the whispering voice.
"What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.
In an awed whispering voice, the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper."
Alarmed, concerned, and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "What are they searching for?"
Still whispering, the young voice replied, along with a muffled giggle
I am back from home and will be posting 2-3 posts by 2rrw :) so be ready

Pleasures of life :)

Yesterday i spent a lot of time in garden n i was so happy after that...
walking barefoot on grass while chatting with frens... gossiping about others in our hostel.. :) some girl has got a new boyfriend.. a girl is so obnoxious... and how we have got stuck in this place.. so much of work to do.. we would have been better in doing a job.. how much we miss our homes.. mum used to do this and that.. yummy food.. soft bed.. airconditioned rooms ;)

But real pleasure was not in talking :) it was in walking bare feet on grass.. i did this after such a long time... grass was a bit wet.. we usually went to garden and sat there.. yday we kept our sandals aside n started walking round n round in the garden.. when we sat i was still playing with grass with my toe fingers.. i had fallen in luv with the touch of wet grass.. and the smell of earth at that time... oh i miss my home so much.. when my papa waters the 20-something plants in our home, this is the smell of that.. :( i am going home this weekend though :)

My test today...

Well, i had a test today which i knew will go bad.. but it went even worst than expected.. object oriented analysis and design is such a boring subject.. all that software engineering kinda stuff.. anyways we all went to the class.. test had to start at 11.. i was there at 10:55.. we waited the teacher to turn up but she dint.. we thought maybe she isnt well n thats why around half of the class isnt present.. but when our watches showed 11:05.. we all started worrying.. "is room no, correct?".. "anyone checked?".. "Yeah i checked, it is this room only".. "But i checked it 3 days before".. "lets go out n see".. "hey mam is coming here".. "She is calling us, she seems to be angry".. "Dont you read notices or what?" ( that was our angry ma'am).. I was a bit behind so dint listen to which room no did she tell us to go.. Now i started going where everyone else was going.. i walked up to the person ahead of me.. "Where do we have to go?".. "I dont know".. "what?".. "I am following them".. "ok".. We reach the class which was in a different block and about half a kilometer away.. We quickly took questn paper and answer sheets from the invigilator and sat to give exam.. it was already 11:18 in my watch.. I quickly scanned the paper and started writing whatever came to my mind.. By around 11:50 invigilator announced "Time is up.. please hand over the answersheets back".. Now all those who were late still had considerable portion left to attempt.. She came to us and snatched answer sheets from us.. We were like ma'am atleast give us 10 more minute.. "NO.. its your fault you came late, not mine i had put up the notice yesterday for the change of room blah blah blah"..

So, to sum it up i screwed my test.. which is not my fav subject anyways.. so probably its ok.. Also i recvd this today :) Tension lene ka nahi, sirf dene ka...

The moment you are in TENSION
You will lose your ATTENTION
Then you are in total CONFUSION
and you'll feel IRRITATION
This may spoil your personal RELATIONS
Ultimately, you won't get COOPERATION
And get things into COMPLICATION
Then you may raise CAUTION.
And you have to take MEDICATION
Why not try understanding the SITUATION
And try to think about the SOLUTION
Many problems will be solved by DISCUSSION
Which will work out better in your PROFESSION
Don't think this is a free SUGGESTION
It is only for your PREVENTION
If you understand my INTENTION
You'll never come again into TENSION!!!!!!
