Gym or Cricket!

So we’re here to talk about wackiest things I have done for the love of cricket! There are a lot of times when I’ve done things to be able to follow and enjoy the game. I remember there was the IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians  After a long time there was a possibility of Mumbai Indians actually winning the match and getting the IPL cup. In all this what my mother expects me to do is go to the gym. Now what is important? Gym or cricket? Obviously cricket! I would do anything to not miss on the match. I told mom i would work out for an hour extra the next but no there was no way she would agree. I thought she was being too fussy. Actually, she was right in her way because there should be a kind of discipline that needs to be followed without a doubt. But again, one day is okay, no? The problem with me is that these one days are a very frequent occurrence. What I did next is a little funny. I told mom I am going to the gym, packed my bag, left the house only to go downstairs to my friend’s place and sit & enjoy the match. I didn’t even realize how long it had been. Obviously my mom knew i am up to something when i didn’t come home for a good three hours. There was a lot of lecturing that followed that night. But there was nothing that could take my happiness away from me that day. Mumbai Indians had won! I was smiling away like a fool while my mother screamt at me ! But, after that day I’ve been regular with the gy, well that is at least what my mom thinks 😛

My favourite feature about starsports would be the action replay! If there’s an interesting ball or moment that you’ve missed, you can go back and enjoy it without any problem!

Sujit-My best friend, My role Model!

The question is – who is that one person that I always look up to? Who is it who never fails to inspire me? Who, with his one even glance , can send a surge of inspiration coupled with courage and admiration mingled with awe in my mind? And answer to that question is – that person is my best friend – Sujit!

Even though both of us are the same age, he is someone I look up to. And with good reason too. I have known him all my life – he is my best friend, my mentor, the bravest person I have ever known. But what has he done to have me speak so highly of him? The answer lies in knowing who he really is as a person. He has had to face some really very difficult situations and hardships in life. Like the time when his time when his father   was discovered with having suffering from a serious life- threatening disease or  the time just after his father had suffered a huge loss in his business and those were really difficult times for him and his family. But I have seen him rise above all, facing all these difficulties with a sweet and charming smile on his face. And, to think that he is just 21! I really don’t know where he finds his courage from, but what I surely know is the fact that he knows how to spread those onto others and help those who are in need.

Also, like I said, he has never failed to inspire me, he is my role model – if I may say so. One thing that he keeps telling me is that and which is definitely his motto in life is this – “We only live once. So, there’s no point living it in fear. Always, face your difficulties with a smile and then you will see how quickly it ceases to be a such a huge problem you thought it was!”

Papa I love you!

A male role model you ask me to write about. There’s no one else except my father who instantly comes to my mind. a pillar f support who has stood by me through thick and thin. There’s nobody I have seen with the kind of patience that he has. Very traditional in his approach at times but extremely tolerant of our generation’s modern ways. The best thing about him is that he has never been judgmental  He has always been there as a strong pillar of support in my life, there’s absolutely nothing that can give me more strength than this fact.
There’s a particular incident which I would like to share with you all. There was a time in my HSC science that I had lost interest in my studies. The portion was too tough for me and I could not cope up with the way things were. Being a topper in school and then suddenly a big zero in the science class had taken a huge toll on me and my self confidence. There’s only my father who came to my rescue at this time. He was the one to tell me that nothing is impossible and that if i actually tried, I could do it. And I have no qualms in accepting that yes, he was right. On the other hand, he was upset to see me frustrated with things that didn’t interest me. He was the person to say if you want to change fields, I am there with you. Go ahead and just do it, I will stand by you and answer anybody and everybody’s questions.
That was the moment when I realized how much my father loves me and how my being happy is one of his most ardent concerns. I love him too and try my level best to at least inculcate a few of his qualities within me.

A day full of ups & downs!

I left from office on a happy note looking forward to the well-planned weekend with friends. Little did I know, What was in store was a series of events that would leave me rather upset instead of happy. In the forever crowded bus that I boarded I was surrounded with strangers and absolutely no place to move. This particular man who stood behind me seemed to be trying his best to take advantage of the situation. This is something that pisses me or any girl off instantly. He looked so disgusting with a stubble and pan-stained teeth. I hated his smelly stubble, the way he looked, the crowd, the traffic, everything was just so disgusting. To add to this, my friend called to tell me that our plans had to be cancelled because she had something urgent that had come up. Another add on to the already bad mood! Here, this man just wouldn’t stop leaning over me. I was so frustrated that I screamed at him and the entire bus stood proof to the crass words I showered him with. The only solace that day was me reaching home and having a peaceful dinner with my family.

A new life & a new beginning!

It was going to be my first day at work. Super excited and happy I left from home to go to the station where the train would take me to Thane, the place where my office was located. I was new to the railway system as well. I didn’t know what platform my train would come on neither did I know where exactly to stand for the ladies compartment. Super confused as I was on the crowded platform, I looked around for someone sensible who would hopefully be able to answer my queries and guide me. There was a young man in his late 20s who looked decently approachable and like he would be able to help. I walked up to him and asked him about what train i would have to take to go to Thane. He answered with a smile and very carefully explained to me where i would find the ladies compartment as well. His clean shaven look, dressing style and chivalry completely bowled me over! I thanked him with a smile and began walking towards my compartment. I just couldn’t stop smiling thinking about this short but cute interaction with the helpful stranger. I got on the train that arrived and secretly hoped to find him on the platform the next day as well.

Create a better Delhi!!

1) safety for women
Buses have become increasingly unsafe for women population which has hampered their confidence and made it difficult to commute in daily buses
2) Voting must be made compulsary
People should be forced to vote and only then an effective government will be established. Those who don’t shudnt be allowed to enjoy government policies till the next elections.
This is My Delhi Manifesto in association with BlogAdda.com.

Do the following when you have asked for it!

1) Pass a population control bill:
Bring the child limit to 2 and promote child adoption. This will provide homes and families to the orphans. Also provide low EMIs to the parents who adopt kids and also financial benefit to them. This helps both the orphan and the couple and the society on the whole.

2) Initiate Delhi clean up drive in colleges, schools and offices.

Why only ask the children and youth to clean their city might as well ask the corporates to get into the boots and remove the dirt created by them over the city. This can happen every week, reducing the intensity of dirt over the city.
