Keep going!!!

Life, you can’t subdue me because I refuse to take your discipline too seriously. When you try to hurt me, I laugh-and the laughter knows no pain. I appreciate your joys wherever I find them; your sorrows neither frighten nor discourage me, for there is laughter in my soul.

Temporary defeat does not make me sad. I simply set music to the words of defeat and turn it into a song. Your tears are not for me, for I like laughter much better, and because I like it, I use it as a substitute for grief and sorrow and pain and disappointment.

Life, you are a fickle trickster-don’t deny it. You slipped the emotion of love into my heart so that you might use it as a thorn with which to prick my soul-but I learned to dodge your trap with laughter. You tried to lure me with the desire for gold, but I have fooled you by following the trail which leads to knowledge instead. You induced me to build beautiful friendships-then converted my friends to enemies so you may harden my heart, but I sidestepped your figure on this by laughing off your attempts and selecting new friends in my own way.

You caused men to cheat me at trade so I will become distrustful, but I won again because I possess one precious asset which no man can steal-it is the power to think my own thoughts and to be myself. You threaten me with death, but to me death is nothing worse than a long peaceful sleep, and sleep is the sweetest of human experiences-excepting laughter. You build a fire of hope in my heart, then sprinkle water on the flames, but I can go you one better by rekindling the fire-and I laugh at you once more.
You have nothing that can lure me away from laughter, and you are powerless to scare me into submission. To a life of laughter, then, I raise my cup of cheer!

MY library

Posted 15-09-2006 at 05:47 PM by sunayna
since i am preparing for killing the CAT..i visit my library often…
its a place to study.

the first day..i hated it,
being used to friendly conversation of my librarian and sr clerk in college..their stiffed lip arrogance dint appeal to me at all
i came back..sayin tht i HATE it. im not going there again
no one smiled at me on my first day….they make me wear a badge wen i am inside….AC is on powerblast…leaves me freezing…
Yuck yuc yuck

then
second day..i had to go…had relatives comin…
mom wld make me help her cook..
the lib looked like a better option
and i dragged myself ther.
and as i was climbing the steps of the entrance…the guard smiled at me..
i was shocked.

it somehow …. was a figment of my imagination maybe.
i adjusted sooon
and now i like it.
ive made frenz already
i go in my pajamas..much to my mom’s dislike..

ppl come all dressed up ther…make up and all..
i get up at 730.and i brush and have Breakfast and leave.
have to catch my fav place beside the window.
come back for lunch….we usually get only half an hour…if u dont return to ur seat…its given to someone else.
it happened to me today.
i was annoyed.i lost my seat.
i was made to sit near the aisle.
sad seat.
i missed my window..and i made no attempt in hiding it.
while leaving…uncle told me “kal time pe aana”
i felt like showing him my tounge…but i smiled … as politely as i cld…and left.

it doesnt have the best of books…for instance..it doesnt have “Atlas Shrugged”…i still dont believe it.how can they NOT have tht book
but, Overall, it has a wonderful collection ….. i shdnt be complaining.
probably its not time for me to read it…
i know i had to wait for “Fountain head” ..and
“To kill a mocking bird” for ages..and they suddenly appeared frm the blue…Fountain head ka copy was new..and my college librarian knew i was dying to read it..so he let me have it first..
and fot “To kill a mocking bird”..i was searchin for it on the shelf..and vini told me tht she is carryin it ..and its in her bag…

so probably….. same is gonna happen with atlas shrugged too.

Giving CAT is an Experience

Posted 12-09-2006 at 04:48 PM by sunayna
U may think i have lost it..and ppl who have prepared for their Masters …will may think tht i hve gone nuts…

but think abt it
it truly is an experience…
9-10 months(only hopefully) of turmoil…reading 2-3 newspapers..Learning new words..Solving those tortourous Quant problems…and yet getting a sidey score wen it comes to percentile…and dont even get me strted on DI…no matter how prepared u go…some table comes….which makes ur table shake….endless RC passages…tht make u doubt if u really can comprehend anything?
buts its am Amazing experience..
u hopefully wont live it again.

i realised ..reading The ET is not all tht bad.it actually is good.
CAT is almost like a course for living ur life.
it teaches u time management. u better try clearing the cut off in all section under the time constraint..

CAT will force u to remove bias frm ur mind
u cant leave every Permutation or Log sum becoz u know it will be tuff..
it might just be easy..CAT will make u try. Try till u succeed…is wt CAT will ask u to follow.coz there is no other way of learning,

CAT will crush ur percepetions..
the statement “First impression is the last impression” – CAT givers dont hve the luxury to believe in tht..
something a sum tht looks tuff..might actually be a simple sum..
u have to read it…before solving it or leaving it.
Exactly the same way…in life…dont beleive in first impressions…they never have been the last impressions in my case at all..
its the same as “Dont judge a boook by its cover.”
some ppl look obnoxious at first..give them a try…u might end up learning something frm them…

CAT is a road to self discovery

If u have strted taking Mock CATS or Aimcats..or wtever ur classes call them…..wen u analyse it..ul see, the reasons u dint solve a sum..or got some sum wrng..is bcoz of ur own shortcomings..
i have seen it a lot of times while analysing my paper.

if u dont get into ur desired school…i wld say..nothing is lost…u have spent 18 – 19 K on learning something abt urself.
but i hope u get ur desired school….just like me!
Pray for me!

pitter patter rain drops

Posted 05-09-2006 at 05:17 PM by sunayna
there is something abt water falling from the sky ….it gives me a high..
be it rain or waterfall from a mountain
nature is so beautiful
can u imagine no rains…i cant!

i was sitting in my balcony (also my study) and preparing my schedule for killing the CAT. and was very tensed..becoz things were not falling in place..as it shd be.
and it strted raining….heavy torrentious rains
and the pitter patter of the rain on my chapda…did something to me
i cant define it in words….but somehow my tension got washed away..

wen we were in sajan resort on our outbound training… we stood beneath the waterfall….
the heavy gush of water on my head..u can barely hear anything then….its like someone givin a massage…its beautiful..it cleanses ur soul…
i try this under the shower..at home..
lemme tell u..its not the same..not even close.

ther shd be official holiday …every month…for rejoining with nature
its very very essential!

I can never think of Life without Rains, the reason being the place from where I belong that is the place where i was born and brought up records heaviest rainfall…(so by now you must have guessed where I am from) hmmm the sound of rains drops on tin roof is amazing… you are under a quilt and its raining like cats and dogs on your tin roof…it feels like as if the entire world is revolting against you…the sound of thunder … and you are safe and warm under your quilt… I bet you would have your best sleep then…

i dint know i cld do it

Posted 28-08-2006 at 03:40 PM by sunayna
best time of my life is NOW

Our CAT classes ka team went out for a outbound training.
it was absolutely amazing.
i dint know i cld do so much
call me lazy….but the only exercise i do is walk from station to home and back
and i was amazed at myself wen i did rappelling, River crossing, kayaking, and rope climbibg

Ya, ive included rope climbibg tooo..i dint know i cld climb a rope.
usually in movies…rope climbig is shown really tuff and a reason for someone to get B grade in gym class.
and ther i was…climbing a rope…
things are not as bad as they look…at times.

there were some who dint, wen i went ahead to cheer them…the feeling was amazing.

me…who is too lazy to even walk ….. run…actually told ppl..”if i cld climb it,so can u”

funny thing, one of my friends….pria (she is gonna kill me if she knows abt this) was climbing. and she cldnt do it…so i strted cheerin…”go pria go”and she stopped climbing and yelled back “shutup..ur barely 60 kg…and im more than 70..so go sit,..and lemme climb”
well….my work ther was done…she climbed up and came downa fter me πŸ˜›
well..as long as she climbed…i was satisfied

πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

kayaking was fun too…i cant swim…i learnt swimming wen i was in the 8th std…and havent gone swimming after tht….
so..i asked for someone who actually knew swimming to go with me.
it was fun…i was made to sit in the front…and boy..were the arks heavy

my hands are still aching.
not just hands….everything but my hair is aching


but did i enjoy it..oh ya
we stayed in tree houses..it was amazing
it had everything
from bed to western toilet.(hush)
lights ..mirrir…2 fans…
amazing
it also had a balcony…hihih…i was shell shocked.

best part was rappelling
before going down, i told my sir to take good snaps of me….incase i die, my parents shd know the real reason i died
sir said “chup kar..kuch nai hoga..drama company”
the initial step is the most important.
once u get the hang of it..its simple.
i did slip and hurt my elbow…and was shaking wen i reeached the ground….but it was good fun

now…each part of my body is aching…
but it was all worth it!
u shd do it…atleast once a month.
im joining a club soon!

wt r we rushing for

Posted 23-08-2006 at 03:48 AM by sunayna
i was at my aunts place…..helping her find pics..so she cld show them to the relatives…

all of them are above 50….really old…and all look alike…atleast to me…to an extent.

after the lside show got over and everything..i got my incentive..
my aunt made dhokla and Tang for me… and ofcource…everyone else.

i finished eating it in 4-5 mins…and i realised tht i was the first one to do so…whereas…everyone else had morethan half plate left

it struck me like a bolt of lightning…why am i alwsys in a hurry…i had nothing to do for the remaining time as it is..
so wts the point of my not even njoying it ….

old ppl are soo sweeet…they are like children
wt amuses me is tht they still have a sense of curiousity…curiousity to know abt things…know abt how the comp works…..
even after knowing so much…..experiencing soo much…its highly fascinating…isnt it?

i simply ran

Posted 18-08-2006 at 06:59 PM by sunayna
coming back home frm work…i had a empty cup of coffee in my hand.
there was a bhel walla sitting at the station.

i duno wt i was thinking…or probably…tht was the problem..i wasnt thinking..

i thought his bhel ka tokra is a dustbin…and….i did the unthinkable
ya i did it..
i …threw my empty cup at his tokra(thnk god i have no hand eye co ordination)
it dint go inside ….it dint touch the kurmura….
but i was about to go pick it up and put it inside…wen i realised tht it wasnt a dustbin

i simply ran away…i dint even make eye contact…

after some time..wen i actually realised wt i had done….i thought i shd have atleast said sorry.
but i was too embarassed to actually go back.and lazy also..and scared tooo…

gosh..i hope i dont run into the same guy tomo or ever..and i hope he doesnt remember my face.

MY SIS is home !!!

Posted 13-08-2006 at 04:37 PM by sunayna
after Almost 4-5 months of staying apart..my sis has come to her senses.. and is finally home.
she shifted to my aunts place wen her classes for 12th std strted. she had to study and all tht stuff…
also, goin to classes was easier frm my aunts place…and we recently shfted to our new house na….this house is smaller than our previous one…so she dint wanna come here.

we wld keep in touch via missed calls…and we wld meet usually on sunday evenings….

also…staying apart…did bring us closer.
we actually strted to miss each other.
i dont think much changed though…we did have a huge fight …like always..and ended up not talkin to her for months… she still hasnt wished me for my bday though…due to tht fight.

wen we were together… we probably took each other for granted
wen we stayed aprt for sometime…. i dunno abt her..but i missed her a lot…no one to trouble me…. no one to tell me abt her experiences in train
ya really..she has a new story everyday…
ive asked her to write a book …on her daily exp… it cld be a bestseller.

wen she wasnt around….i dint know wt clothes to wear…she is my biggest critic…and is very annoyingly right most of the times.
i know she is younger than me….4 yrs younger….but she takes care of me.

she knows me well..and knows how to make me angry too…and she knows how to make me laugh.
she is the best

now tht she is here….life is funner.(i cld write more fun…but wt the heck…i feel like writing funner…. πŸ˜‰ …hihi..im happy my sis is home)

now its back to ticling each other….driving each other nuts….sharing the same bathroom and knocking from outside….arguing abt the perfume and earrings…and ofcource clothes…lol….life is fun again!!!

i got a new cell
my old reliance ka range sucked. so there were times wen the phone wld disconnect….becoz of no range, there were times wen i wldnt pick it up..becoz i cldnt hear it

now since i got a new number and everything, i was in the train…comin back home..and my mom called. i honestly dint hear it.. dhyaan nai tha.
and i reach home…and mom says….tu nai sudhregi.
i said kya hua…
she said…phone uthane ke liye hota hai na…

and i realised….tht it wasnt my previous phone..it was me…
ops:
well…. πŸ™„

Posted 06-08-2006 at 05:13 PM by sunayna
Wen i was a kid, loads of ppl used to come to my bday party…the whole school gang, classes ppl, bldg friends…
but have u realised..as and wen u grow old..it changes
the number of friends who come….reduces….year by year

and then u r left with some true blue friends..who come over…every year

wen i was a kid…i thought it was a status issue …if frenz dint come… it meant tht they dint like u

i still get tht feeling…wen i invite someone for my bday party or for any party..and they say tht they’l see…or they cant come..i feel bad.

its a matter of pride. isnt it?

accding to me, inviting someone over…is like opening a whole new life to them…
its the greatest amount to respect tht one can give someone..isnt it?

i hate givin treats…i dont see the point in them…a treat in a hotel is OK…but not my idea of fun…

i rather invite ppl over, share my humble home and food with them, play sily games like TRUTH AND DARE and DUMB CHARADES..which have actually become a prt of my bday tradition….

BUT now….tht i am all grown up … i realise tht ppl have other commitments..other issues…tht need to be taken care of…
is this wt growing up is all abt??
if this is it…then growing up sux..big time…

i dont wanna grow up…
i wanna remain a small kid again..and party with all my frenz on my bday.

my dad told me tht its ok if some of ur frenz come…its not necessary tht everyone u know shd be present…
But i want them too…
and askin me to show tht i am ok with the frenz who dint come….is impossible…i banged 4 phone calls yest..wen ppl told me tht they cant come.

wen my mom saw me do it..she said tht this is not the way to behave..
well..wtever
if i am not happy..it shows..
if i am happy .. it shows

is growing up all abt hiding ur emotions…then i dont think i am ever growing up!!!
i am gonna laugh wen i think somethin is funny..and i am gonna cry if i feel sad…

while writing this post.. maybe i am being a lil unreasonable with frenz who really had prior commitments or stuff…
but isnt friendship all abt being there wen someone needs u…
isnt friendship abt being unreasonable and demanding.

there was once….last yr…2005 january..wen i had told my close friend tht my new year resolution is to stop having expectations ….from everyone.
i think thts the key to happy living.

and he had said…. firstly its an impossible task…and secondly..its dum to even think like this…wen u have expectations…and someone fulfills them… the bond of frienship strenghtens…

i dint belive him then…
and i think it makes absolute sense now.
he was absolutely right.

its like tht presentation on citehr…abt maddness.tht if someone breaks ur heart once..doesnt mean u stop trustin ppl…

but if someone says tht i am unreasonable with my friends….
so be it!!!

Dont judge your friends by whether they come to your party or no. True friends will come when they can. And when they can’t they always make it a point to keep in touch one way or the other, even if your angry or even if you bang the phone down on them over and over again. But realise that they are your friends, so even if you have the authority to be unreasonable, you must also be understanding.

Hi Sunayna

Friends are Fri(ed)-Ends of yours. You only make friends with like minded people.
In my opinion every relationship (except between mother and child) is a Give and Take relation.

same is true with friendship. The day you start expecting something out of your friends .. ask your self a question if you are doing the same thing to them when its their turn. Do you go to B’day party of each and every friend of yours.. if no, please do not make unreasonable expectations as it will only hurt you

BTW when was your birthday

hey….

grow up dear.. what m i trying to tell u .. u already know about relationship and responsibilities..

ya some times things dont get according to our wants .. its because u keep expectations and that u know!!!

i have als realised this stuff with friends.. when every one got graduated they strived for jobs.. then they started having a burden called “responsibility” .. we dont use t see eachother much but still till date we are sticking together its very tough very hard when uer elder bro or sis is getting married and uer best friends are not with u cos they also have something called personal life,, responsibilities , liablities…. and all that..
any ways u know it best

by the way saurabh
correct me if m wrong .. relationship is all about learning and understanding the craps between each other…..

bahut phek liya 😈

You are right but missing a vital part called reciprocating!! 😈

Trust is the basis of any relationship. And process of building trust requires everything from learning and understanding to expressing that “you care!”
