"Little Women" is a must read for all females and for all males who want to understand them.
What's so good about it is that it so wholesome and clean and pure. An instinctive "feel good" book though not necessary completely happy. But it covers everything, relations, aspirations and emotions.
Francis Bacon rightly said,

“Some books are to be tasted; others swallowed; and some to be chewed and digested.”

This is one to be chewed and digested and cherished in the heart. It's very vital what we read 'coz we imbibe certain characteristics based on that. So it makes sense to read some books which would mould us better. Of course if we strive deep enough we will find good or bad in any book but it's more likely to get good in this book. But I feel even Enid Blyton is splendid for any age 'coz long forgotten lessons of purity and goodness do come back to you in it sometimes ...Isay that from experience! Even without that, it's always good to read your childhood favs once in a while - gives a kind of security and childlike carefreeness.

"Brida" is another masterpiece-the author holds you gently and takes you out of this world while showing you parts of this world which you missed out while in it. It's a miracle how such a book is written!

Of course there are too many good books for me to write about...books almost always seem to keep me good company!

Little strokes fell great oaks

It feels good to be's strange how sometimes we feel no one notices or cares about the little things that we seem to toil over or take pride in but mark my words-that is never so. So it's best to do each little task with full vigor.
Cricket shows this...take time to notice sometimes how fielders give their all to save even a run and not just in crunch situations but as a habit.
But then I also feel we mustn't overdo it-I mean if a class player gets badly injured before a vital game in order to save a non-match threatening run, then won't it be better if he taken little care of himself also?
So it's OK to take a holiday now and then to rest yourself when required especially when you know you are not at a crucial stage. But when you do work, give your best and never be discouraged by thinking that "this matters to no one". It always does for "little strokes fell great oaks"

Food for thought!

Some of the best sayings I have goes to Sunday TOI....just
collecting my fav ones.......

"Pure sentiment is everything.With it, nothing can fail, without it nothing can succeed"

"The hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection and not a fountain , to show them we love them not when we feel like it but when they do"

"Advice is like snow- the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind"

"Never pretend to a love you do not feel, for love is not ours to command"

"Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open"

"Relationships are how we relate to others"

"To help other, it is enough to perfect your art"

"Even if two people are together, it doesn't mean that either can forget that each has a life of their own also"

"One of the reasons people hold onto memories so tightly is because memories are the only things that don't change when everything else does"

PG Express 2

We come back in circles.......a year has gone by since I joined here......and now again I see interviews being held...brings back a nostalgia and makes me think back on how life has been here.

How I have begun to love my institute with's given me a lot.....gone is the laid back attitude and last minute rushes(OK to some extent only), it's replaced with a passion to work and work satisfaction....
The second semester started on hard work and serious attitude...right from hols...with the project which rescued me away from low confidence.
Every moment has been unique and there have been so many learning experiences...
At each new thing to learn and I would groan.."how can I possibly do this?" and then with great guidance and encouragement , I would move on...pestering some friends a lot also by talking about nothing else but the work assigned! I remember the days of staying back and working when all were free to chill out.But it was worth it.Then suddenly it would work and I would be delighted!And so the process cycle continued!

Then came my fav subjects...EE and AI.....loved the humanities subject so much...always felt most attentive and passionate about "writing" again...even the 5000 word essay!
It probably made me ready to take up challenges in all other subjects just knowing that I could do this also...and it came also in a way so fairy like....when I could find no elective to go to and just sat for 1 class of this by chance and got hooked! Enjoyed discussions with teacher....enjoyed presentations and even regular brought the inner me.

Loved working in partners in AI if creating something!Loved studying the subject also....
The exciting next part was the Ed board..something just for me....impulsively joined it and loved it!My second experience in a different team now!

Loved the snatched out moments on pleasure also...visits to PVR saket, green park,moments of telling all with friends , necafe discussions.....
and beautiful moments of being understood and silence also.....
The reunion of old a wish come true...
strange that i have to a stage of being able to call it "old college"..but happens....

with time everyday situations, places and people

come in front of our queue of attention

....And a passion is in its buds for!
And may be finally dance also!
and its been a sem of lots and lots of blogging and self dependence and growth also(more and more food lol!) .
And a sem which culminated beautifully with a perfect birthday and normal result(at least good in all my fav subjects and as expected in others) :)

And now PG express continues with summers......
Love being at my institute even in evenings...second home...the lab!

Deadlines make you stronger despite the stress...........................

........................if you let them!


"Use the talents you possess ,for the woods would be very silent if only the best birds sang" complete in itself and so beautiful ..


"Tears are a very big thing. Keep them for that instead of shedding on little thing"..........heard from someone....
may be it's true...coz tears mean we pain about something...
But tears also represent an outlet to our frustrations so that way I feel it's ok to cry if it prevents you from having pent up feelings


As you go in higher realms of education, you are made to realize that it's not knowledge which important...but its application.
Is it a correct thought?
I feel some knowledge is also essential despite the above conclusion based on my experiences.
