Sh*t Happens...Life goes on...

.
Sometimes I feel…Why Me?? Why do all the bad things happen to me only?? But then that is the case with everyone of us on this planet. All of us ask, at some point of time…Why me?? I guess everyone has his share of sorrow and happiness… The only way one can move on with life is, look at the brighter side of our sorrows…. So what if my love cheated on me for a few months before going(just came to know....prefer not to explicate), at least she made sure that I didn’t know about it till I took the ISB and IIM’A interview….She actually cared about me that way… So what If I had that accident, I’m at least walking, talking, singing and have cut the mustard to choose between ISB and IIM’A…I think It’s on us, to decide which part of the half-filled glass we want to see...

People say, “Life goes on”, but NO, it does not go on till the time you realize what Tom Hanks said in the movie -Forrest Gump… “Shit Happens”…once u realize this, Life actually goes on, you leave the past behind and say… “Sh*t does happen…let me move on now…”
We should live every moment n enjoi everyday as the last day of our life n there’ll be no regrets whtsoeva…thtz how mez gonna live I guess...Life goes on...n on...n on...

Better to have loved and lost than never to have. . .


25 March 2007
Well, itz almost official that we have broken up…her parents…conservative n orthodox pahadi that they are (with all due respect) are not going to agree ever…n family takes priority…did everything I could to convince them…but it seems, for them everyone whoz not from Dehradun is an Alien n dies after one year… how outmoded can people be…wanted to say, “People grow up!!”…lolz… mez single again…it was so good to be in love though…

. Being in love… very abstruse to be described in words…involves lot of joy, satisfaction, pain, jealousy,eternal bliss n peace galore!! Oxymoron!! It was such a spiffing feeling to know that someone out there cared for you n would always be there for you in the future… irrespective of whatever…Nice to visualise someone in your mind when you hear- “You took my heart away...” Lucky are those, who fall in love…Luckier are those who marry the ones they fall in love with…I’m at least “Lucky” that way, not “Luckier” may be…(Looking at life through rose coloured spectacles).I thank Alfred Tennyson for quoting this quote:

“Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all”

"Mussorie Nights at IMA"

"Mussorie Nights" were one of those experience which no army officer can forget...It was a sort of punishment tht all juniors went through...

The nights at IMA (Indian Military Academy) were damn cold...especially in winters where it seemed tht all d cold winds in Dehradun got accumulated n were thrashed upon the Gentlemen Cadets there...Here are the proceedings...

Imagine the coldest month...hilly areas of D'dun...any fine day the seniors used to decide...okay, time to give d kids a "mussorie night session"....The junior course used to be called at 2030hrs, after dinner...made to "front roll" n "cream roll" n "back roll" n "side roll" n this n that...it went on till around 2300hrs...after tht, we were taken (rolling of course) to the bathroom n take a shower in the damn cold water...then brought to the open ground...with the sight of Mussorie far far away on the hills...then came the "freezing" part... made to strip...save d bare minimum....and made to stand...just stand...stand in shun!!....and told to look at the lights of Mussorie n take warmth :)) Lolzzz....
All in good spirit...both d parties smiling away...ourselves lookin at our state, n seniors thinkin of their times!!
Gosh, shivering like anything...but cud not shake a feather...
If u move...another shower with more cold water n again stand outside with the wind biting into you!!
Thtz the best part of army...Rules..have to b followed, Sedition is invidious!!

Done both-taken and given "mussorie nights"
Whomsoever invented this must've had an awesome of humour!! Feels great..wht we underwent...
