Pregnant with two babies but not twins..

I was just stumbling through New York times and I came through this piece of information about a woman named Julia was pregnant with a baby girl and when she went in for ultrasound a few days ago, they found that there was another smaller fetus growing inside her. This time, a boy. She was shocked initially but the doctors have assured her that it would not have many complications while delivery, but the first baby would be born on Dec 25 and the next smaller baby boy would be born on Jan 24. It is one of those rare cases where the guy could not keep himself occupied with anything else!!! LOL. There is the picture for you.

Sindhanai Sei...

I've been inspired by a fellow student to write Tamil kavithai. He is a person who gives importance to Tamil culture and other traditions. He calls himself Sriram Senthamizhan. Here is his Kavithai in Tamil for you


Aridhana Manidhanai pirathandhil varutham..
Perithaga yethayum seyyathate ithan artham..
Thadam marum manam..
Ithuvae manithanin gunam..
Verrumayil orrumai enbathu pechu...
Kudigaran pechu vidincha pochu..
Ulagil undu ore madam..
Pinbu en intha arthamatra perumidam..
Manidhanai vida mirugame siranthathu..
Itharku karanam sindhanai eranthathu..
- Sriram Senthamizhan.

Realising the value of friendship

During these days, I get into a lot of trouble in college. Yes. The thing is I do things impulsively which results in something else which was not meant to happen. I'm getting back to be very naughty. I usually tease and get teased... A Lot. Basically, I do it for the fun of it but I make sure that nothing serious happens or I don't go beyond my limits. I know the feeling of other people and try my level best not to hurt them. Not all of us are alike. We are a unique piece of art created by god for some purpose in life. So many difference, yet, we are all here for doing something. Having a meaning for every minute of our life.

Same goes to friends and our other relationship with people. Life isn't always having the good people. Life is all about being what we are and how we manage ourselves. Like I always say, " WE LEARN FROM MISTAKES." I'm not saying that I'm a good person neither a bad person. Qualities I think good, may not be the same for others. These are not the common qualities. I'm talking about qualities like friendship, understanding, etc. What am I trying to convey through all these things?? ( i really dono at the moment.. but lets hope I get what I'm trying to say)

Today, like I was saying, I was teasing an OLD friend of mine which was not a good thing. She got angry and pissed off. I try to handle things on my own without other people involving themselves into the case unlike she did the opposite. She involved her so-called BF into the issue and this became a big issue as the guy came and talked to me about it. He is also a very good friends of mine and I said I did it for the sake of fun . It hurt her that badly, I'm ready to apologize and accept my mistake, but she cried out loud and made a big scene. I got very angry(I hate myself angry) and teased her more which was not suppose to happen but I did it. So I left college abruptly without any solution. So I was not quite happy with what I did and called up the BF to apologize about and I realize that something he told me over the conversation was very important for life as friendship. He said that even if a friend was committing a crime against you, you would have to forgive him/her and get back to what you were before the "so- called- fight." Of course, I dint accept it in the first place. I argued with him about it for quite sometimes and things he told really made sense. There are only a few minor differences between Love and Friendship and fights like these just should not ruin the friendship because like he said, we never expect anything from a friendship just unlimited love and joy. Thats why we have friends, isn't it?? Give me your comments and suggestions on this one.

Ending life

Its hard to get away from life, easier to end life rather than face the agony, pain, sorrow or shame. Yes, all of us have to go through pain or sorrow @ some point of our life even the TATAs and BIRLAs have to face it. These are just a mile stone for us to grow using this. All failures are stepping stones to success. Someone, somewhere, knew that life isn’t about dying!!

I got a call from an old friend today!! She was crying when I picked up the call. I asked her what was the problem? She said that the guy she loved for more than 3 years has rejected her and married a rich girl. She was ashamed to face her parents since she was stubborn about marrying him all these years. She has been crying for the past one month, not going to office regularly or eating properly. All she could think about was DYING. She told me that she wanted to talk to me about this before she died. Little did she realize that I could get her out of it by the time the call was over. I thanked god for once for giving me the power of convincing her. It took me about 3 hours of talking. It was unbelievable how Love can change us. She was scared about the relationship which she had with him. They were intimate and sexually involved. I had to tell her that this was the end of everything. She was scared about her future and what would the husband think about her.. Obviously, all these thoughts clouded her like hell. Pavam. I pity her.. She was such a sensible person. So responsible about what she wanted to do in life yet when it came to love, she chose the wrong guy. I had to convince her that life has to go on. I made her promise that she wouldn’t try anything stupid again. I hope it doesn’t occur in her minds again.
In India, more than 1,00,000 people die due to suicide in a year which is a very sad thing.  Love, family pressure, loneliness, health issues, failures, loss, exams et all are some of the reason for people to suicide. Sneha, this is an NGO which is a suicide prevention helpline. It helps people to get out of these feeling of ending life. If these depressed people talk about their situation, they have 70% chance of getting out of the emotion. I volunteered once and I got a girl from a girl who was in her first year of college and she was devastated because some A** Hole harassed her sexually while travelling to a nearby place. Since that area was quite and no one around, he took advantage of her. Thank god, she dint get raped but she was very upset about it and this was killing her. No one to talk to. She could tell it to anyone. I cried while talking to her, so I gave the call to one of the seniors who handled her call and convinced her not to do anything stupid. When I still think about it, I start to get tears from my eyes. Its so bad, don’t you think. You can also volunteer to help bring life to another human. I did and I got the sense of satisfaction that none other activity in my life would give.
You can contact them through the website Sneha, or call up the number 044-2460050. Help bring back life.They are open 24hrs a day.

Updates! Updates!! Updates!!!

1.Watched the latest Kamal Hassan's Movie UPO (unnai pol oru van). The movie about a not-so-common man. I don't think terrorism can be eradicated by terrorism. I mean I cannot even imagine my dad( definitely a common man) thinking about violence. May be big shots common men like Kamal can...:)

2. Life can be tooooo boring if you have 72 subjects to study. So am I bored? Yes. I'm totally exhausted. I need a little break to come back with a big bang for the upcoming placements.

3. Friends?? Okay that's definitely a big question mark(?). Really cannot realize whether I will ever get a good friend. I miss all my friends- good or bad. Just unbelievable for a people- person like me.

4. Blog. Due to the facts mentioned in the above list, my imagination is stuck. I really cannot get anything in my mind except sadness which is really too boring for me. I need positive energy to get on with anything.

5. Presentation- I have this BIG presentation coming up for my Mergers and Acquisition class which is going to be huge for me because I've worked my heart and soul into it!! I just wanna give my best. I realized that these presentations give me the best of confidence that I've had in my life till now.

6. GOTA- Global Opportunities to Threat and Analysis. It is a program to give us global exposure on the global companies and their strategies. Basically and frankly, its foreign trip which is paid for along with the tution fees that we pay for this MBA program. They are yet to take us to this trip which has taken the longest time ever and we had a long talk(fight) with our Dean about it.

7.Mission Separation- My class has got a new pair of love birds who are totally not so perfect for each other. Since I belong to the group which is trying to separate them even though I don't give a damn about them, I'm getting squeezed between them. (God, please help me, I hate this business).

8. College- Being in the final trimester in which we will be having classes, I am going to miss each one of them. So planning to do something special for all my classmates. Hoping that it will come out well.

9. Anger- I hardly get angry but off late, I cannot control them. Even though, it wasn't my fault on this particular issue, I shouldn't have scolded my friend so badly. Sorry, Vijay. Peace !!

10. I miss my sister since she has left for UK for her higher Education. I wish she is okay there.

Not alone

When Someone I care about
is going through a hard time,
I feel it too, I can’t make things
better for you, but I can tell you
that you are not alone and
that you can count on me
if you need anything
even if it’s only a hug
or a smile

55 fiction

My first 55 fiction. Inspired by many bloggers. I hope you can understand it.

Dying proposition

"You are not dying", said the young doctor, but I knew that something was wrong.
All I wanted to do now was lie on bed along with my grand son and tell him my love story,
The one which paved way for his life too!!"

Mazhaiye Mazhaiye

Mazhaiye Mazhaiye- Eeram | Music Upload

This song from Eeram has become my favourite song right now. I keep listening to it everyday and I think you will like it too!!

Eeram – A touching reality

” Trust Your Life Partner, don’t care about how he/she was in the past, Just see how he/she is at present and how he/she is going to be in future”

Trust does it exist these days. My friends, I’m not writing a review on Eeram but this piece of dialogue struck me very hard. Since I’m at home , because I’m sick for the past two day. I dint have much work to do rather than watch this movie. Life is all about trusting everyone else around you but now is it possible these days. My father cannot even trust his own brother. They had this huge fight yesterday morning which totally put me off as well as increase my fever. I usually don’t show out my emotions but yesterday seeing my dad shout at his brother like he has never done before made me to rethink about trusting anybody for that matter.

Now coming back to the movie, trusting your life partner!! I knew a friend of mine who loved his guy very sincerely but after they got married it was always fights. I mean who doesn’t fight these days, but the root causes of these fights were not trusting each other, Ego and other personal issues. Main thing was she found that the guy was having an affair with another woman twice her age. When she confronted him about it, he blankly said that she was not able to satisfy him and this was only after 3 months of marriage. She had to divorce him but that he pleaded her not to let go of him. I even remember seeing him fall on her legs when he had come to her house to ask her to take him back. Since they had to live together atleast for a year, she agreed to go to his house. He was normal for a month and then again he started seeing the same woman. My friend thought this was the limit and left him just like that. Finally, now she is in a good job, living with her parents but all the perverse men are waiting to lay their hands on her whenever they could get the chance. This is a reality and she is living it. I’m not saying that its only the men who are under the fault. I know a few women who are betraying their husbands. This isn’t life. Lies, betrayal and all, just for the mere sake of sex. It totally ruins not only their lives but also the kids.

Unnai Mudhal Murai Partha Podhu Yarpadatha ondru,

Unnai Parka Parka than Thondriyadhu!!

Indhu Kadhal ah?


Aam! Indhu Kadhal than,

Anal Un Mel Ala.

Nee Aval Mel Vaithi Irukum

Kadhal Medhu.

PS: I stopped studying Tamil in class 8th because I hated my Tamil Teacher but then I realised years later that I am missing one of the best part of being an Tamilian. This is my first attempt to write a tamil Kavithai. It might sound like Dhanush’s Dialogue but I really liked the pun in it. This is to you Sriram - Senthamizhan

Broken heart

It's been a long time now
Since you broke my heart
Thought i could easily get over it
Knowing what I did was just right
But here i am
Still holding back the
Feelings i still have
I can't let you go no matter what...
I still can't mend my broken heart!

Love of friends


Your my friend till the that I die
The day I loose you will be the day I cry,
You are an angel sent to me
and will be in my heart for eternity.


Am I happy or sad today? If there is any sadness I make a strong effort to be free of it quickly, otherwise it grows like a vine in the rainy season: by midday I will be confused; by evening a whole jungle of weak, wasteful and negative attitudes will have taken deep roots in my mind. The result equals Chaos.

Sometimes I reach a stage where the attitude is: “ So what if I feel the blues today? It is my life; i can feel how I want to feel; no one else will be affected”. But this is not the case, when you are looking at life. Like for example: In my life, if I become sad for just a day, you will my whole family will not be happy. Its not because that they love me that much but I also feel that I’m that positive energy in the family which keeps them quite cheerful. I get up in the morning, smile @ my dad, get scolding from my mom for getting up late(with a smile, of course) and then fight with my sister for the bathroom which we share and of course rushing to college everyday. These activities in a day do not go without a smile in my face. Not only @ home, you will see that I have the loudest laugher in class. Everybody will look back to my place when we share a joke at college. Sometimes, when I’m stressed out or have any issues in my personal life. I will have people coming and asking me why I’m not laughing today. People I don’t even talk to everyday.

Firstly the more I allow myself to experience sorrow, the less time I have available to be happy and contented. It sounds ridiculously obvious, but am I aware of the value of happiness. It is an extremely rare commodity, and the cost goes sky high. Don’t you agree with me???

Secondly, is it my life? Yes. I am living it, but am I not a member of a family or a fellow student with others, and am I not part of society? If so, then every movement affects and is affected by those around me. We cannot be selfish all the time, can we??

Ps: This was to have thought provoking post!! Any thing wrong or you like it, please let me know.

Ceramic figure

I usually go to my college in my car. While going, I always a jolly good time looking around, noticing all sort of funny stuffs happening early in the morning. Likewise, Today I noticed something strange about the car which was very close to mine and we were going on the same roads for quite a long time. Since I was looking around, watching to see any funny stuffs. I noticed a ceramic figurine in the backseat of that  car. When I looked close by to see what was this figure all about. It was a state of the art picture of two people making love. They must have been taking that picture, probably to put in an Art Exhibition. But when I noticed it, I had quite an embarrassing scene because I found that my driver was also saw me looking at that picture ( because at first sight, I couldn't make out what it was, so I had to peep in close to see it) and also the guy who was driving that car noticed it. Quite unintentional of me to see it but I could take the stares of my driver till i reached college. What a great morning!!!:)

Unnai Pol Oruvan

I'm a great great great great to the power of infinity fan of Kamal Hasan. I always looked forward to his movies and I'm looking forward to this one too. I've heard that he doesn't show any kind of heroism in his movie. But of course, its a remake of the Hindi movie- A WEDNESDAY. Music is composed by his daughter Shruti hasan. She tried her hand in acting and came out with her first flick in Hindi, Lucky with Imraan Khan which dint give her a good break. Lets hope this one atleast does it to her in music. Here is the Trailer and Promo Song of the movie. I usually don't like remakes but I'm expecting this one after seeing the trailer in satyam the other day. So here it is for your eyes:

After college question-III

The bell rang. Saved by the proverbial bell. It was time to leave the college premises.
She stuffed her books in the bag and stood.
“You’ll change your mind.” He leaned over and kissed her.
Her eyes went wide. She opened her mouth to speak, but no words came out. Instead, flustered, she turned to go, and then froze.
Prem stood in the doorway, stunned. He didn’t wait for an explanation; he rushed out of the room.
Pooja glanced back at Vineeth. “How dare you do that to me? Why did you do that?”
“Because I felt like it.”
Not only had he robbed her of her first kiss, but possibly her first love, all because he felt like it.
Anger pumped in her veins, and jabbed at his face. She hit so hard that he had a shake in the place he stood. “Don’t you ever touch me again!”
He touched his face, looked around to see if anyone was nearby and said, “Good thing that you are a girl or else I would have killed you right now!!”
“Ooh! Take to the hand, A**.” She took her bag and stormed out. What a jerk! She ran down the corridor in search of Prem. God; please don’t let him hate me that much.
Ramya ran up behind her. “Did that Vineeth  just kiss you?”
“Yeah, and right in front of Prem.” said Pooja. Ramya looked vivid.
Tears began to blur Pooja’s vision. What if Prem did not believe her? She stopped near his classroom and glanced inside it.
“He’s outside,” Ramya said, pointing to the front steps. “Don’t you worry; we’ll take care of Rajesh once and for all.”
“Thank you, bye!” Pooja ran towards the door almost knocking down another girl. “Prem!”
She could tell by the way his shoulders stiffened that he’d heard her, but he didn’t stop. In fact, he started walking faster.
“Prem, wait!” She reached his side, breathless. “Let me explain.”
“What’s there to explain? You love Vineeth. I get it.”
She grabbed his arm. “Stop, please!”
He faced her, his eyes filled with pain.” What?”
“Were you going to ask me something?”
“Doesn’t matter anymore.” He glazed past her.
He looked so angry. What would she say to make this right?
"You’re wrong about Vineeth. I don’t love him."
His eyes narrowed. “I saw you kiss him, Po. And I know it was your first kiss.”
Her face warmed. Of course he did. He knew everything about her." I know, but…”
Prem tilted his head to the side. “But?”
Could she say it? Be honest about her feelings? If she didn’t tell him, she’d probably lose him. “Vineeth kissed me, but I didn’t kiss him back. I only slapped him, because…”
Prem stepped closer. “Because?”
She swallowed. Her heart was beating so fast she thought it would pop out any minute. And she had butterflies in her stomach all at the same time. I can do this.Because, I love you. I always have!!”
And he kissed you?” he moved still more closer.
“Yeah,” she whispered.
“And you slapped him?”
She shook her head.
He leaned forward. The faint aroma of his perfume spread around her. She closed her eyes and inhaled. His soft lips brushed hers, sending goose bumps everywhere.
She opened her eyes.
Prem grinned a lazy smile.
She bit her lips and smiled. “So, what did you want to ask me?”
“I wondered if I could borrow your IPod for a few days”
Pooja playfully smacked his arm. “Only if you promise to take me on the farewell party?”
He held her hands and “Deal!”
The end.

My first award!!!

I was given my first award by Bharathi . Thank you pa. I'm honoured. This kind of encouragement and motivation makes me write more post.

"Hey sexy lady"

You guys must all be wondering what I'm going to say in this post. Its nothing to do about sex or may be. If you had watched Sun Tv for the past one month you have noticed that this song " Hey Sexy Lady" Promo of the movie Ninaithale Inikkum. Since Sun TV was promoting their own "MOVIE" in their own "CHANNELS", you would have seen it like a 100 times a day. Same thing happens in Sun music, K TV and also Chutti TV. So literally all of us were only seeing this a dozen time at an hours time on the TV. We, at home, all the tamil channels together so that we can keep changing it for convince sake.

Last week, my cousin POOJA visited me. She came home because her mom had come to help my sister pack for her trip abroad. So it was my duty to keep Pooja out of site so that they will be able to do their work peacefully. ( Pooja can be a pain-in-the-b*tt sometimes). Since I gel with her very well, I was given this responsibility. She was playing some Dora games in my laptop and suddenly she started singing the song " Hey Sexy lady". I was shocked and terrified. I mean, it dint affect me when I was watching this song all the while on TV or when I could see Prithiviraj dancing with some item girl. It was such a shock when I heard my 5yrs old cousin sing it. I told her immediately where did she hear it( such a obvious question, of course). She coolly replied on Sun TV and also said that she loved song. And she said, " Akka, en class la ellarukum Prithiviraj na romba pudikum." Meaning that her classmates like the actor Prithiviraj very much.

Excuse me!!! :( Have I got something wrong here. A bunch of 5 year olds talking about Prithiviraj. This certainly put me off the whole day. I cannot image even seeing such kind of stuff when I was that young. I remember asking my friend in my 7th standard about Crush. So much of exposure these kids have these days. Actually this was just the beginning. Since I had a mild attack, I switched off the TV (literally pulled out the plug)and laptop and took her out in the evening to have a nice and fresh walk. Since we had a park nearby and we would also have a lot of small kids visiting the park. I thought it would be a great place for her to play and have some fun.

The park was pretty crowded because it was a Saturday. My place is nearby the boat club road in Chennai wherein most of the people are likely to be more well off. And most of the kids were from these places. So I let her to have her own time, while I sat on the bench watching her from a distance. She was playing for the while, when suddenly she stopped and looked at a kid who was dress all glittery and fancy. That glittery girl, for that age, was looking like a real glam doll. She was pretty, cute and very shy. So Pooja went near her and was talking something. I really couldn't hear it so I went little close to eavesdrop on my 5 yr old cousin. She was asking where she had got the dress, those silver coloured sandals and also those lovely barbie girl earring, this girl was wearing. Knowing my cousin, I asked her to stop worrying about all the that and asked to continue playing. She would leave that shy girl who kept running around trying to avoid Pooja from following her. I thought enough was enough and threatened Pooja to take her back home, if she dint stop annoying the poor girl.

My Drama-queen cousin started to cry and I had to give up and let her play for some more time until it got dark. Then took her back home, by that time all the packing work was done. The thing why I was talking about this incident is because I think its not ethical to have those poor kids know about all these stuff only when they are just old enough to eat food by themselves. Of course, they will have their time to get to know all that they are so eager to know until them I hope they stay clean. Clear instruction are given to my aunt not to let her watch TV for more than 1 hour a day and that too only Chutti TV or Pogo or Cartoon network.

You're beautiful

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,(Real version)
Flying high,(clean version)
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

PS: Song reminds me of the love of a man which is very rare these days.

Teachers: Now & Then

This post has been published by me on the occasion of the Teachers' Day as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 2; the second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
Teachers mould the lives that they influence. Lessons learned from teachers remain with their students throughout life. Teachers that break down barriers and reach into the souls of the students that they are responsible for do not get the recognition or gratitude they have earned. Many teachers are exhausted from their workload and responsibilities. They have their own families, financial and life stresses that challenge them along with everyone else. We should always respect our teachers. Teachers need encouragement and support from the community to feel that their devotion to students is appreciated.

Socrates was an example of a good teacher. He considered himself a learner as well as a teacher. For Socrates, love and friendship were the proper contexts for the pursuit of wisdom and goodness. Socrates saw himself only as a catalyst. He felt it was not his teaching, but actually the power of the Divine which enabled the person he was talking with to improve himself.

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his "birthday". In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers' day". The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.

This is how we have come know of how teacher’s day is celebrated in India. Now for the topic of Teachers: Now & Then.

I would like to take up the example of Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam. To me, I consider him as one of the best Presidents and Teachers of India. It is an honour for us to possess such a great personality to support and encourage us into the New India which we all dream of. This dream can only be fulfilled if we have the right type of Teachers to guide us.

It is said that on an average a student spends upto 25,000 hours in his life till 10+2. The lives of the students are more influenced by the teachers and the school environment. Therefore, the school must have the best of teachers with ability to, teach and love teaching and build moral qualities. Teachers should become role models. Similarly, the student must be alert to build himself with best of qualities and to get ignited with a vision for his or her future life.

Teachers are different when time goes on. Dr. Kalam said that he had three different teachers who thought him three different things in life which made him what he is today. First, being his father who taught him moral value system which needs to followed throughout his life. Secondly, the teacher who became his role model by showing how a bird flies both theoretically and practically. This made him shape up his profession and this was his inspiration for his profession as a rocket scientist. Finally, his professor in college who made him understand his creative professional capability which led to building confidence and will power to make a design, to make a product, to make a system to overcome the problems faced in it which led him to greater heights in his life.

This above note shows us how the teachers can mould the life of an individual and bring about a change in the environment and society as a whole. This was role of teachers, then.

Now, as we have all experienced teachers still make quiet a lot of influence on us like Dr. Abdul Kalam. I remember some of my very own teachers who could never be forgotten in my life. Mrs. Mangalam Ma’am was a very strict teacher. I still remember my ears paining for days after that one twist which she gives us if we had done a mistake. I used to cry and crib about it, but I realized that if hadn’t I got that twist, I would have never gotten myself interested and involved in her subject MATHS which is considered to be the most important subject. If it hadn’t been for her I wouldn’t have learnt it better.
Then there was Miss. Mahalakshmi, my commerce & accounts teacher who would never pay attention to me. I loved her teaching and would envy my friends who all get her attention. I wanted to score high in my exams and prove it to her that I was capable of anything no matter how difficult it was. This was my first step towards hard work and dedication. So even though there are teachers now who influence us in a way by making us stronger for the outside world. Not only does the student learn, but the teacher shapes his life with great dreams and aims.
I also learnt from my PT teacher Miss. Shanti Ma’am who taught me the courage to stand up to something right. She taught me that boys are not the ones who are always right and girls also have the right to stand up and fight. So there are a lot of teachers who influenced us to become a better person.

Among us there are a lot of people who teach us how to live and love and experience who are also considered as teachers for life. Eventhough, we are in a fast paced life, we should take the time out to go and visit the people who taught us the first things in life. It gives them the sense of satisfaction that no money can buy. Finally I would like to quote Dr. Kalam words,” Every one of us in this planet creates a page in human history irrespective of who he/she is. I realize my experience is a small dot in human life, but that dot has a life and light. This light, let it light many lamps.”
I dedicate this post to all my teachers who have been so supportive of me and made me what I’m today. Thanking you all for your kind guidance through my thick and thin. Happy Teachers Day. Jai Hind.

After college Question-II

Ramya squealed behind her, and then hugged Pooja tight.
“OMG! Is he finally going to get up the nerve to ask you out?”
Pooja untangled from her friend’s lean arm. “Are you kidding me? Knowing him, he’s going to see if he can borrow my IPod for some days.”
Ramya adjusted her glasses. “No, I think this is it. He is going to ask you to the farewell party. He’s been dropping hints for weeks.”
Though Pooja wanted that more than anything, she doubted it would happen in this century. “Come on. Let’s leave this alone for now. I’m going to the library. Want to join me?”
“Okay, let’s move.”  And they both headed towards the library.
Pooja found a seat in the back of the library and opened her new Sophie Kinsella’s book. The pages blurred. She couldn’t concentrate. Her hand revolved in the shape of a heart over and over in the margin as if it had a mind of its own. Would Prem really ask her out? Could this be it? She refused to get her hopes up. Twice she’d thought he’d ask and twice she’d been wrong.
“Hey!” Vineeth, alleged ladies’ man, sat next to her.
“Have I told you lately that you’re beautiful?”
“Go away”
He pushed his hair out of his eyes, wearing a flirtatious smile that probably got a good response when used on the other girls in College. “Want to go to the movies @ Satyams on Friday evening.”
He rested his arms on the desk. “Why not?”
She opened the book and pretended to read.
I’ve been watching you, you know.”
She met his gaze. “I’m not trying to do anything to you. I’m trying to study.”
He seemed to consider that for a moment, but obviously dint let that bother him. “You don’t like me much, do you?”
“What was your first hint? Me turning you down or me being rude?”
A coy smile spread across his face.
She wanted to slap it. “What?”
“Nothing. I just think I found a date for Friday.”
“The corpse bride?”
“No, you.”
Pooja choked,” Huh! I’m not going anywhere with you.”
