It was a normal day like any other day, for you all but not for me. My eyes opened with the ringing alarm in my cell. I opened my one fourth eyes and switched it off and went to sleep again. Then finally my one fourth eyes opened half at 10 am. I was in bed and still half sleepy when I realized that my left head at the back of my ear was paining like hell.
I never had such pain before. It was paining since few days but that was minimal. Still sleeping, my mind starts working and the first thought that came there was ‘Have I developed Brain Tumour?’ I’ve seen in the movies, they show that whoever has a brain tumour gets a pathetic pain in head. As this thought passed through my nerves, my body stretched and my eyes were wide open. I woke up, rather got up like I have just been given a shock, and opened my laptop. I didn’t bother to wash my face. Who will care to wash when this kind of thought will come in your mind?
My mind was still working. I Google my query and came across a link which talked about the symptoms. I clicked it thinking that what to do it I really have a tumour and how big will it be? Still in my dream world, I read the symptoms.
“These are the most common symptoms of brain tumours:
1. Headaches (usually worse in the morning) : I had one, in fact having one right now. CONFIRMED.
2. Nausea or vomiting: Not yet happened but might happen in further stages. DOUBTFUL.
3. Changes in speech, vision, or hearing: Yeah, somehow. I hear something else. And sometimes face difficult to read messages when I’m sleeping. I read ‘How’ into ‘Where’. CONFIRMED.
4. Problems balancing or walking: Yeah. It happens. I face difficulty to walk when I’m wearing a high heel Woodland trekking shoe and a heavy bag with laptop, camera and books. Anyone can walk properly with those heavy bag and high heel. CONFIRMED.
5. Changes in mood, personality, or ability to concentrate: Surely. I feel disturbed when I’m not done with my article or facing problem in finding an appropriate topic. No one would shout or get disturb with that little obstacle when you’ve loads of thing to do and your boss is calling every second and asking for article. CONFRIEMED.
6. Problems with memory: Few days back I forgot the name of my sister’s friend whose contact is been saved in my cell and we meet every week. Sometimes, I even forget the day. It doesn’t matter if sometimes it happens. What matter is this all are happening with me right now. CONFIRMED.
7. Muscle jerking or twitching (seizures or convulsions): It’s happening since few days. I know I’m wearing that Woodland shoe very often and go for assignment walking long miles. No one would find that difficulty when you are running with that shoe every day. CONFIRMED.
8. Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs: It happened when I sit one position for long hour without noticing that I’m little healthy, actually fatty, and when you sit in the same position folding legs, the blood finds difficult to circulate in your body and you get that feeling. At this moment, it was correct in my context. CONFIRMED.

OMG (Oh! My God), 1,2,3,4…..8. Seven out of eight symptoms fits me. After I analysed my situation, I switched off my laptop. I again fell in bed. I was imagining about what doctor would say when I’ll visit him.
“Ryan, I’ve news for you, a BAD news to give you. I’m afraid you have developed Brain Tumour. It has grown a little and that’s why you are facing those headaches. We can operate you but in that we have a risk. Either you’ll lose all your memory or would go to coma as it’s located near to the main part of your brain which controls all memory”.
“If I chose not to get operated then who much time does I’m left with?”
“I’m afraid it’s only 6 months.”
I’ll come out and would call my friend, Vishal.
“Those doctors are good for nothing. We’ve developed such nice equipment but they are not able to do anything with those”.
“What happened, Ryan? Why are you so angry? And what made you visit a Doc.?”
“I was having headache so I visited him. After doing all the test he’s saying that I’ve developed Brain Tumour and if I get operated either I’ll lose memory or would go into coma. They are good for nothing. I’ve only 6 months in my hand to live”. With tears in my eyes and angriness in voice, I’ll talk to him.
“But how could it happen? You won’t die soon. Let’s meet up and see some other doc.”
“Who else can be good? I’m coming out from Aditya Birla Hospital. They are equipped with latest technology. Any ways, I’m going for movie, to freshen up and then would sit down to make a list of what I’ve to do in these 6 months”.
“But which movie you are going?”
“I’m going for AanjanaAanjani. Hope to get some idea on what all I’ve to do before I die”.
Then, suddenly, I thought of messaging Vishal about my open eye dream and the problem. As I explained him the whole thing, instead of sympathising he was laughing. How rude? It’s so bad of him. He said that whatever I thought was making no sense. It was all non-sense. He was certainly not my good friend. I shouted at him but then he cooled me up and explained that just because I take lots of tension I might be suffering from the headache. Or maybe it was because I carry that heavy bag which might have resulted in some stretch of my nerve which was connecting till there. Then my attention went to my shoulder. My left shoulder was paining as there was some stretch in a nerve or couple, as it seems, which made my shoulder pain. After that, I all my symptoms CRASHED.
My open eye dream might have fallen but that made me a little philosophical, a little only. It gave me a thought what if one morning I’ll develop something like this which is not curable. Why get something, what I die in an accident while crossing the road? Life is really uncertain and you don’t know what will happen the next very second. But we live our every moment criticizing, curing, and doing what not to others. This we call life? The moment I thought that I’ll be having only 6 months to live, my mind start working in all those things which I would like to do. That very moment, I didn’t thought of doing something wrong to those who did wrong with me. Neither had I thought of harming anyone in any sense. My concentration was only on the ‘Things to do before I die’. And that list didn’t include anything like that. So, why we don’t do all those ‘goody goody’ things when we are alive? Why we wait for the last time to come so that we can pen down the list of ‘things to do’? Can’t we live with all those positive vibes? I don’t know about you all, but I still have that 6 month to live and would try to achieve all that what I’ve noted down in that list. Who knows what will happen next.

Tapri-The adda of students

Whenever one talks about the college days, our mind recollects those classes, those friends, those lectures and how professor scolds on bunking those lectures. One important part which every one miss is the Tapri.
Tapri is a place where we sit together, discuss about on the reason to bunk the lecture and whose lecture needs to be bunked. A place where one makes plan for the movies and talk about the on-going affairs of class. Where one with the smoke of every cigarette forgets the tension and assignments that need to be done. Where one sits for the whole day completing the assignments on an eleventh hour. This is place which is not as big as Café Coffee Day or any other big names to mention but a place where one gets the finest of experience and the best tea or coffee at a reasonable price.
Unlike any other college, Indira College also does have a Tapri which fulfils the all emotional support that a student would need in his college days. Located next to the Indira School of Communication building on the way to Indira National School, this is a small open area which is owned by Arun. It been opened since 1998. Since then many students from all over the campuses of Indira Institute come here for the refreshments. As you enter the small place, first thing you will notice is the chairs and table arranged by the side of the foyer. The place is been covered by the shed. On the right hand side you will see a small table where Arun takes the cash. There itself one would find all kind of cigarettes available. This place might be seen a very congested area, but as you enter little inside, you enter to the open hall with natural wind blowing.
One cross the kitchen and then enters the open area. As you cross the kitchen, you can smell the Vada Pav, Bhajji, which is been prepared. That brings water to your mouth and you are left with no option to just order. After crossing the kitchen, one reaches the open hall. There are three sitting arrangement made. One next to the kitchen, which is again under the shed, the next two is in an open area in opposite directions. During evening hours, you can see students sitting in large groups smoking and enjoying the Vada Pav or Bhajji. A student, Rishkesh, who is doing Masters in Mass Communication from Indira, says, “I come here for time pass, basically to smoke. We come in groups, have tea and sit chatting. It is the attachment towards this Tapri which brings us here”. The place is no less than a home and can be a perfect place to enjoy the nature. Sushant Singh, another student from same batch, says, “When I come in evening, the cold winds make the environment romantic. I can see the setting Sun and the cold winds blowing makes me romantic. I used to sit here having a hot glass of tea and enjoys the evening time”.
This place, with an open area makes it no less than a five star hotel or a well managed place. The area is open. It is been managed by a small family. The food one gets is crispy, oily, and is of reasonable price but yet it attracts every student. Not even boys, girls do come here and sit. Avidha Mitra, a student from Advertisement and Public Relation, says, “The place is not about boys or girls. The place is about the environment. Here it is open and the breeze is so cool that we can’t stop ourselves from coming here. We enjoy sitting here with friends during evening”. This is a place, which is ordinary for any other person. But for a student, it is a place more than a tea stall. It is a place where they meet. It is a place where they laugh. It is a place where they make plans. It is a place where they complete their assignments. It is a place where two hearts meet. It is a life for them. It is a part of life for them which is opened from 7 am till 9.30 pm, adding a new memory in their mind with every new day and passing of time. This place will be here for days to come, but they will leave with such sweet memory in their future. One day, they will get nostalgia sitting in an air conditioned room having a cup of filter coffee and remembering the unhygienic tea in a small glass in an open area.

There is an old saying, “In the whole world there is nothing which is free. One pays for each and everything”. Long thing short, “There is no free lunch”. Some earn it, some steal it and there are some who grab. But among them, there are few who allow people to take their lunch. These, last type, are not saint. They would have been in ancient, but as per current situation, they are STUPID.
These people are really stupid that they allow other to take away their lunch and they sit and watch them doing this and keep saying, ‘Let him do. He is hungry and needy. One should help the needy’. They keep thinking that Mighty Lord is watching them and one day will give them reward. All their good deeds will be paid one day. Spending their whole life thinking this, at the end they are left with humiliation, feel of getting used by the people and the group increases each and every minute, hour, day, week, month and year. According to the Hindu Mythology, this era in which we are living is named as ‘KALYUG’. In other words, the humanity is lacking in this era. People around us are no less than a structure of a bones and flesh which can even cheat his brother if needed to climb the stair of success. They won’t think about it once before taking such a bold step.
The meaning of trust, humanity is missing like clouds from sky during summer in desert. No sign of evidence to a long distance. Finding humanity is like finding salt in water. In these worlds who are left behind are those who are human. Who are real human. But then, who needs human today. We need who are smart. Who thinks from mind not someone who takes decision from heart, occasionally. Those who can think from mind and can play the mind games are surely welcome in this world, else you are welcomed as a toy. A toy with whom these smart can play and improve themselves. After all, they need time for refreshments. We, those who are good by heart, are their refreshments. We come in their life as a toy with whom they can play, use according to them, make us fool emotionally, and then can throw away like a doll thrown away by a 16 years girl, for whom it holds no place in her life as the age with dolls are gone. We become a showpiece for dustbin. Again alone, quite thinking were we went wrong. We blame ourselves for whatever happened.
We blame our fate. We always find our self in place of culprit and think that we won’t let this happen again and next time we will do better in holding a relationship. We take all faults on our self but forget that it’s really we who are responsible for whatever happened. We allow others to use us as they want. The big fault is that, we are good. We have to forget our goodness which is of no use and make us a puppet. We are no puppet. We are also human made up of bones, flesh, mind and most importantly, which they lack, heart. We got heart and it really pains when someone breaks that trust. It does and the pain is unbearable which cannot be healed by any medication. It stays with us. But now, it’s time that this baggage needs a disposable. Throw this garbage and along with it throw away all emotions that make you weak. This time you need to be powerful and need to take command on your hand. This all emotional crap needs to be dumped and make yourself a strong to win this world. Believe and trust yourself. Let the devil within you come out to prevent the goodness in you. Else it will be affected every time and then it will lose the glow. Let the demon come in front and guard the innocent boy. Do not forget, “There is no free lunch. And you are not a lunch. Never be a lunch but if someone tries to make you a lunch, you eat him”.

What’s hobby? Why it’s so important? What is has to do with person? Why it’s frequently asked? These all are few questions which come in my mind as I hear the word ‘HOBBY’.
According to the Oxford Dictionary meaning, it means, ‘leisure time activity’. But for me, it has something deep meaning. For me it’s not only the activity which one does on leisure time, but it’s something which can be one’s profession. People find ‘hobby’ is just an activity which can be done only in free time to get rid of the boredom. It’s more important than what it actually seems. Whenever we fill our C.V., we come to a column ‘Hobby’. If it got a space in our C.V. then definitely it has some importance which we can’t ignore.
But then why does it have been so important? Someone told me, ‘A person’s character can be easily known by one’s hobby’. This might be the one reason that this minute thing has got importance in our C.V., which is the first entrance in any organization. One have hobby depending upon his character. Like a creative person would have a hobby which has creativity in it as painting, dancing and other such thing. And surprisingly at the same time there are few who don’t have any hobby. On being ask they say, ‘Hobby? I don’t have any hobby’. Which implies that they are just machine who believes in doing the monotonous work appointed to them. Tell me which organization, in today’s competition world would like to have a machine when they already have many machine to do make their job easy. They need someone who can fight this competitive world and will win.
But hobby is not only important in corporate world, it also shapes a person. It’s a stress buster. It, on other sense, means, what one does to keep the energy level, enthusiasm alive within him. Hobby brings life to a person. Some dance when they fell sad so that they can bring out all negative energy out through their hobby. Some like to listen music when they fell low. Some read novels to get their energy level back. There are many who would go for trekking on holiday so that they can return to their work place ,next day, with full of energy and enthusiasm. Physiologists suggest having a hobby.
But in today’s world, we do everything but ignore what’s important, ‘Hobby’. I’ve heard people saying, ‘I like to paint but don’t have time’. They complaint that due to their tight schedule, they don’t have much time to follow their hobby. Working for the whole week, they need full rest on their off days. They hang out with friends, go for drink, sleep, watch stupid programmes on television but don’t take out an hour for what they like. ‘I’ve loads of work and don’t get time for the hobby’. This case is not only with the professionals and grownups, even children are following this. They would love to watch ‘Emotional Attyachar’, ‘WWE’ and other to name a few in place of their hobby. Then they complaint about the pressure of study and growing competition. Parents are pretty ok with it. For them the children should stand in merit list even if he would sacrifice his/her hobby. Getting rich is important than success. This is the new funda of the modern society.
If one would ask me, what I personally fell about ‘Hobby’, I would say, “I’m a simple person like any other having two eyes to see, two ears to hear, one mouth to speak, one nose to smell and other parts of the body to do different work but one thing which distinct and separate me from the crowd is my Hobby. There are many who have the similar hobby, but then this is magic of ‘Hobby’ that it distinct you even being in a group of person. There might be no one who could think like me. My interpretation of certain thing and presenting it in writing or painting or photography can’t be done by other person who has the same hobby. Every mind works on its own, differently. The work of mind is presented by your hobby. Doesn’t matter if your hobby is cooking, stitching, watching movies, traveling, or any sort which re energize you, re-built your enthusiasm, works as stress buster and makes you fell fresh, it distinct you from other. It’s a color of your life which once gone makes your life black and white. It totally depends upon you that in this modern world when there are more colors available, you want your life to be colorless. So what’s your HOBBY?”


When I met my friend the other evening, we decided to have something light. I was unable to decide the good place. Then my friend suggested me a place and we decided to go there. Soon we landed up in Pradhikaran. I was standing in front of a cafe which was in a very small place. From outside it looked like any other cafe but as I entered, I was impressed by the ambience. With light colour wall and great lightning, the small place was looking very nice.
There was a small balcony and we decided to seat there. As we both wanted to have something light, we decided to have a Veg Grilled Sandwich and Finger Chips along with drink named Mango Slush and Blue Wave from a very nice Veg and Non-veg menu available. As I looked around after giving the order, I found a television playing IPL Matches, a very colour full light on one corner, a properly cubed and managed sitting arrangement, the half open kitchen and the colourful walls which catches your eyes. Soon after our order, we were served with our drinks. I ordered for Mango Sush. As I took the first sip, I felt the exact taste of Mango. The sweetness and the whole composition of ingredient were perfect. My friend was drinking the Blue Wave. Our drink was good. As we were drinking, one of the person came and asks, “Sir, if you find it sweeter then we would like to change it for you”. The way they treated it was appreciable.
Then as we again resumed our chat, we were served with a bowl of finger chips. As I took the first one, it was good. The crisp, less oil, properly baked. One feels the real taste. As we were in the middle of finishing the chips, there came the Veg grilled sandwich. They served it with few potato chips in a plate. I was unable to control myself after seeing it. As I took the first bite of it, I felt the cabbage, cucumber, tomato, and other such vegetables getting mix in my mouth. The taste made me to finish the whole sandwich in one take. The quantity and the quality of the food served along with the service they were offering forced me to call upon the owner and appreciate him.
The owner was just 26 years old young guy, Bhushan Bhangale, who has opened this cafe just 7 month back. He completed his Hotel Management course and then done his Post Graduation from London. Coming from a family where his father is into construction, it was not an easy thing to do. He got full support of his family and was successful in opening a cafe. When asked why did not he worked in a good Hotel, he says, “Working in a good hotel won’t pay one much then having a good cafe”. He wanted to get back to London again for working but then faced some VISA problem and stayed back in India. He wasn’t shattered by this sudden break of his dream. He thought of using his skill and opening a good cafe which will provide hygiene food and drink along with a good service. “I wanted to start with different kind of drinks then started off with some snacks too”, he says smiling. With its location neat to the Sambhaji Chowk, where there are more restaurants, it’s one which promises you to give nice foods with reasonable price.
With an option of joining his father’s business, he chooses of developing his skill and serving customer with delicious snacks. He takes care of hygiene. He makes sure that he should not mix up Veg and Non-Veg utensils and if he uses it, he washes it after every use. He manages his cafe only with one staff and himself. He attends every customer personally and takes their feedback. One, if really want to have a good food along with good service and reasonable price with added quality, should never miss out a good evening at a small cafe with good ambience and nice music at the background in ‘Liquid Bistro The Cafe’ near Sambhaji Chowk at Pradhikaran. I would suggest visiting at least one and experiencing it.

Why in life we make mistake? Why we commit certain mistake that change life, forever? I sometimes, personally, feel that this all mistakes we commit or do unknowingly the fact that it can affect our life, very badly, is all planned. But then the second thought which comes to my mind is that, if it’s planned then why call it as mistake?
Like any other thing, as they say, mistakes can be of two types. First, which is committed on a daily basis and that mistakes are usual. Second, which are committed occasionally. In case one, our life is hardly affected and we can escape by simply saying ‘SORRY’. Whereas in second case, it’s hard to escape. It’s get more complicated as we try to solve it. The reason is yet unknown. May be the Time, the great HEALER; want to heal the wounds in hearts. But this, would say, turns one’s life totally upside down. One just can’t escape this mistake. Try hard, but believe me, you can’t. It’s a surprise by GOD in our life. It’s something is planned for everyone’s life.
Something similar was planned for me too. And as I said, it’s a surprise, so I was never aware that a hurricane is about to enter my life and would change it. It’s that, I recognized after it went. At that point, when I sat to analyze the whole disasters situation, I discovered that it would have been saved only if I would have given a second thought to my action which gave birth to it. Then I felt, how stupid I’m? I wish, and I mean it, would have known about the outcome if it. But if, I would have known the outcome, it wouldn’t have been a mistake. Now, I think sitting within a four wall and under a roof, how great this whole thing is. I laugh at my mistake and at the same time cry. That’s what I’m doing now. Laughing ‘cause, I’ve not checked my action. And crying, as I’m badly hurt from within.
I committed my mistake ‘cause I was coward. I wasn’t sure of my actions. Afraid of committing a mistake. And want to avoid the worst situation. And now, here I’m sitting after committing a BIG MISTAKE. How funny, isn’t it? The thing I was trying to escape unknowingly moved towards it. We do this. Trust me; we do this kind of act. This all ruined stuff was the outcome of my insecurity. I was insecure of my feelings. I was insecure of my strength. I was insecure about being me. I simply thought that lets take the easy way to face this. And yeah, the road was easy as it took me to the mistake easily without knowing that I’m moving towards it. The journey was great. Easy and fast.
But you all know, I learnt something from it. I gained it after losing some. It’s all about ‘Give and Take’ after all. What I learnt is, trust you. Trust what you are doing. I came to know the proper usage of Mind and Heart. Heart is for feeling and Mind is for thinking. Love someone from Heart but think about the actions to express it, from Mind. This is what will lead you to the proper destination. Never, I repeat, never mix this two. If you do, then GOD GIVES YOU POWER TO FACE DISASTER. No matter how much I can try to explain you, one will learn from its own. So be prepared to face at least one hurricane in your life, which will not only turn your whole life upside down but will give you the worthy lesson of life, FREE.

Here comes yet another movie by Benegal which talks about the problem faced in the villages. But this time it’s not a village from somewhere from North but it’s from down South. Bomon plays a driver in Mumbai whose root is from a village near to Hyderabad. He, one day, gets a letter from his brother and he rushes back to his village. And then the story about what happens there.
The story being with Boman’s boss shouting at him as he asked for a month holiday and showing off after three month. He fired him. Then only Boman puts his reason for being late. Initially boss was not ready but later he agreed and listened the whole story. Boman took us in flashback to his village when he reached there. His daughter, Muskaan, played by Minishaa Lamba, disagreed to the handpuller rikshaw man when he asked for water. She gave reason that there was water scarcity. Then Boman discovered that Government is giving loan to the person who wants to build well in their area. Boman thought that he can build this and can help the villagers as they used to walk long miles to fetch water. He approached the lady Sarpanch and then landed up in the Government office with the help of Sarpanch’s husband. He pays lots of money to the officers so that he can build well. But at the end of the day, well was there in files but not in real world. He was disappointed by this. And then how he solves this and come out if it is the whole story.
Sammer plays Arif Ali, a mechanic, whose father gave loan to the Chachaji, twin brother of Boman played by him, and Chachiji, played by Ila Arun. Ravi Kishen plays engineer who’s newly married to Sonali Kulkarni. He always tries to spend as much private time as he can with her. The cast and crew of this film and previous film of Benegal are almost same. The music is given by Shantanu Moitra and is good. The best of this movie is the Hyderabadi language which every character speaks. Benagal has also shown how Hyderabad nearby village girls is sold to the Sheikhs of Arab. He has once again shown the corruption that exists in the system. He has shown how one can use the RTI Act and can avail benefit. Over all is we analyse the movie, it’s a good. One will enjoy the characters portrayed by each actor. There is situational comedy here and there but perfectly placed. Go and enjoy the village and Hyderabadi language.

Can celerity fall in Love with an ordinary guy? Is it possible? And if it happens then what all the consequences that may arise? This what Roger Michell has tried to show in his flick Notting Hill which is written by Richard Curtis. The movie has Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in the lead. Julia plays the famous Hollywood actress, Anna Scoot who happens to drop in a book shop owned by William Thacker played by Hugh Grant in Notting Hill. While William was returning from the juice centre having juice, he happened to collide with Anna. Then he took her to her house nearby so that she can change her dress. To his surprise, Anna kisses Williams which she said as mutual attraction. Then the story moves further when Anna calls William again by the name of Flintstone while her stay in Ritz. They meet again and then fall in love.
Roger Michell has spread the magic once again in this film after Four Wedding and a Funeral. Although Notting Hill is a romantic-comedy, people will enjoy it. The character, Spike played by Rhys Ifans will make people laugh. He’s done a great job. The movie is smooth and keeps you stick to the chair. The scene when Williams visits Anna at Ritz on her invitation without knowing that the press will be there to interview her for her new film Helix. His reaction to that situation is well covered and well acted by Hugh. At one place, Anna was invited by Williams to her sister’s birthday party. There they discuss about their life and everyone thought that Anna is happy with her life. But then she tells the truth of the actress life. Everyone was shocked to see Anna at their home. And their reaction was really good. Then Anna and Williams came closer and at this time enters the Anna’s boyfriend, Jeff King, a cameo played by Alec Baldwin. The movie has many ups and downs making it a real rather than reel.
All ups and downs are very well handled by the director and the actors. Julia is really good looking and her acting is really outstanding. She has portrait the Anna Scott very well. All emotions of an actress and her reactions on certain things are real. Seems she has emoted her emotions through Anna Scott. Hugh Grant as an ordinary guy who owns a book shop Williams Thacker, who falls in love with a celebrity and then how he reacts on situations seems real. The script of the film and the humorous parts added by Rhys Ifans as Spike is good. One will enjoy the movie because of its good cast, good acting, script and direction. Go watch and see what happens when Celerity falls in love with an Ordinary person.


As you enter the gate of Bal Kalyan Sanstha, you are in a new world. A world where creativity speaks. Where thoughts don’t have any restriction. They travel through any medium they want. Where one will witness how handicapped have bitten up the norms of society which state that to be a successful person, you need to be normal. Here you’ll see how handicapped person is more creative than a normal man.
As I entered the premises, the area was quite, calm, and green. I thought that I came to a different place. While I headed toward the office, I saw few works of art which was as good as anything. The head of place, Mrs. Minita Patil, who’s working here since 30 years when it started, says, “We’ve students coming from 80 different schools from Pune district.” They provide them vocational training which include Jewellery making, cell repairing, painting, music, dance, swimming and many such thing which will help them to compete with the outer world. They train them in such a way that anyone can’t say they are handicapped. On being asked how they manage these students, she says, “Every day six school children come that is around 250 children. So it makes us easy to work.” They have a well trained group of faculty and staff who contribute to the smooth running of the Sanstha. The students participate in National and International competitions. The students have won many prizes in there competitions.
Running such a big institute isn’t easy. This institute get funds from Government and they do accept personal donations. They carry on functions whole year but the main event is on 3rd December which is being celebrated as World Disable Day. With a smile on her face, she adds, “We give all they want to stand in this world to stand on their feet.” These children have lost something physically but God has gifted them creativity which we normal human loose. So in this great world of God, everyone is important and special.


With the passing of time, everything is getting renovation. The outer world and the inner world. The old are slowly fading away and new are coming up. The new generation are changing day by day. The new technologies are slowly capturing the human brain. With this, the words are also changing, rather loosing its essence. Gone those days, when each and every word was having different meaning, flavour, taste and beauty. Now, every word are being mixed up with each other giving totally a new meaning or should say creating disaster.
I remember a line from one of the hit film of 2009, Love Aaj Kal, RIshi Kapoor comments to Nawab Khan, “Humare zamane main pehle ishq hota tha phir shaadi aur phir something. Par aaj to pehle wahi hota hai aur phir aap naam puchte hain. (In our time, we first used to love then marry and then something. But today you do that thing and then ask for the name)” this movie really did well. I liked the way they have compared the meaning of love in two generation. But as you know, that this is just the film and a film is never real. In fact the condition is more worst. While doing graduation, I used to hear lots of link-ups and break-ups. I used to think that how fast our generation is. Slowly I realised its not Love. They were linking-ups as one of the partner is most desirable in college, boys linked up to the beautiful girl to show his capability of having her. Girls linked up to the boy who is having more bank balance and can spend like rain. Whenever they find someone more desirable, then they break up and search for another victim. Luckily, I was none of them. For them, this is Love which comes in a package of beauty and money less emotion and understanding.
The condition is worst when it comes to sex. They say, “Its the hungriness of body which needs to be feed.” In older days, people used to first fall in love. Then used to meet. Then marry and them comes sex. But today, it’s first the comfort level in bed. Then they go for marriage. I was being told once, “Even if you love someone but are not able to get satisfaction in bed, then its of no use. So go ahead with sex. No harm in it.” but i failed to be so modern and smart. I loved to be orthodox and dumb. But today, people even don’t mind to go for extra marital affairs. For them it’s just the change of taste. Many feel proud to have an affair as they show to their friends that they can handle both women well. People don’t have any problem to have sex with their boss if they will be rewarded with promotion. It’s easy ladder to success.
Once I heard a man had sex with his male boss so that he can get promoted. I was shocked that how people are getting habit of easy way rather choosing a path of hard work and dedication. This whole concept isn’t new to society but the way it’s increasing, sooner or later everyone will be find following it. In older days, Love means to be together, but today it’s being used to be with the hot person and enjoy. Soon a day will come when at a certain age, one need to taste sex and find love. When having extra-marital affair will be fashion. And the deep meaning of Love and Relationship will be hidden somewhere in Sex.

Monday, January 11, 2010


Everyone is busy in preparations for the New Year. Punietes have started their preparations for the event. From top police officer to the common person start preparing for the New Year eve night. We have many such people sharing their plans for this great night which we await.
Chief Inspector, Mahadev Chavan of Chaturshrinji Police Station says, “This night is very important to us as we’ve to make many arrangements beforehand so that we can maintain the law and order in our area.” He continues, “We have to make sure that every pubs and bars are closed on the propose time by us. They have to maintain certain security measures which we check before the eve.” They have to see that every measure is being taken properly in the area to avoid any kind of activity. The traffic police are increased in the areas which are more prone to accidents. They are being provided with equipments which will able to measure that is the person is drunk or not. This is the time when they record many accidents all over the city and they have to be prepared to stop such casualty. They have increased the number of metal detector and the guards present at places where they expect more crowd. On being asked that he don’t get chance to celebrate New Year with his family, so how does he feel, he replied with a smile, “Your safety is our priority. When you celebrate it safely, we assume that we’ve celebrated with you.”
If this New Year comes with a responsibility for the Police officers, then it comes with an opportunity for the restaurant and bars to earn good money. Vijay Uttekar, the manager of Shivar Garden in Jagtapdairy, says, “On the eve of New Year more than double customer come than other day.” This give them chance to earn more and the price of items fluctuate accordingly. The restaurants are opened till the time decided in the meeting between area Commissioner of Police and the owners in a week advance. The time increases by an hour on the eve than normal. As the security of the customers are concerned, he said is taken care by them. They look that no mishap occur and when they see any chance then get alert. On eve, they arrange a small DJ for the customers. They don’t allow any person if he’s totally drunk. Wine shop owners across the city are one of them who get to make money on this day. Ram Matre, owner of Impress Wine Shop, says, “During New Year Eve, we have to heir few guys to help us out. We get many customers and it gets difficult to handle them.” The wine shop owners are given closing time by area Commissioner and maintain that. There are cases in which the unauthorized seller are found selling liquor every year. In this he said, “We have been authorized to sell liquor. We take the special permission to sell it on Eve.”
As far as the common man is concerned, the New Year Eve comes to them as an opportunity to celebrate this big day with their family. They purchase new dress and book themselves in pubs, bars, and disco. Few like to celebrate it in home by making delicious foods where as few like to enjoy it with family and friends in a restaurant. The youth move out in groups to different destinations like pubs, discos and places where they can dance and drink. When asked about the safety they take while they are out in New Year eve during which many accidents occur, Sandeep Singh, student of management, says, “We take it fully. I avoid driving when I’m totally drunk. But normally I avoid drinking much.” Whereas Akshay Rao, studying graduation, says, “Accident not only occurs because of your fault. The others are also responsible for this. So no matter how aware you are, if accident has to occur it will occur. But I drive safely.” When asked from Mahadev Chavan, Chief Inspector of Chaturshrinji Police Station about what message he would like to give to the people of Pune, he says, “I have only one message for the people that please drive safely and don’t drink much.” Hope this message will be followed by each and every person of Pune.

New Year Resolutions

What’s your Resolution for this Year?
New Year is not only the beginning of the New Year but also of the new day, new commitments, new dreams and new plan. We all plan our commitments, our day and our whole year from this year. We analyse the previous year and try to improve this year. One tries to improve something or the other in him/her. We all think to do it from the New Year. We all make our plans, our commitments, and our dreams to achieve from New Year. This is all we call Resolution, New Year Resolutions.
We all plan for our year from the New Year. We all try to follow it whole year. One question that comes in my mind is that do we have to wait for New Year to take some commitment? Can’t we plan it any day in the year? Why one wait for it? Every person has different things to say about it. But I’ve a different opinion on this resolution. What I feel is there no need of any resolution. I don’t make any resolutions. I think that one need not wait for a new day or New Year to make any new commitment. It’s something that should come when one feel to have it. Every day, every moment is correct to start a new work or assignment. Why do i need to wait for the year to end or to start?
People believe that with the start of New Year you get enthusiasm. You get a fresh year in which you can start it with all new aim. You can decide to make this year good and successful. That’s why we see everyone wishing a successful and good year to our love ones. This gives the feel that we will not do the same mistake and this day will try to follow whatever we thought to do. People make resolution like to follow diet, to lose weight, to make more savings and such things which will help them to get ahead in their life. We all make to get ahead in our life like the year and time is getting ahead. We learn from our mistakes in the previous year improve it as much as we can. The resolutions made in the first day of the year help us remember that promise done to ourselves whole year and follow it.
Yes, New Year Resolutions is not less than the promise done to ourselves. We promise something to ourselves and try to follow it the whole year. Some people believe that the way our first day is the sign that how our whole year will go. They try to make their first day of the year good and do things that will make their year good. They do things like donating money to the needy or going to temple. This makes them feel good and they try to do this whole year.
Resolutions are nothing but just a medium by which one try to implant all good habits in them and try to make themselves a good human being. This makes them successful and as the year passes, they try to be as good human being as much they can.


The whole city was busy in celebrating the New Year by attending the party in pubs, fine hotels and by cooking delicious dishes at home and enjoying with friends. There was a group of people who were celebrating it in a different way. Some of them even didn’t celebrate the New Year. They are the people from the slums.
The people from slums didn’t celebrate not as they don’t want to but as they were trying to come out from the recession and the going price. They are the class of people who were affected more by the recession. When asked from a fruit seller who used to sell guava in his bicycle, S. P. Jadav (55), says, “Our New Year starts in March with the celebration of Gudi Padva. On that day we buy new dress and cook Puran Poli, the traditional food of Maharashtrian.” He doesn’t have any expectation from Primpi-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation on this New Year. When asked that why is it so, he added, “The Corporation haven’t done anything till now for us so it’s foolish to expect something from them in this year. They just remember us during elections.” They are facing problem with the rising price. They just expect that this year the price of necessary items should not touch sky. They get dal, sugar, and oil from the Government shops. But rest they have to manage by themselves. Whereas Arvind Sharma (35), who’s from Uttar Pradesh and owns a tapir here, says, “I celebrated my New Year with my friends. We just cooked few dishes and wished ourselves. What else can we do?” Kopendra (20), a student studying Arts, says, “I celebrated with friends and wish to get job this year.” Another student, Lakhan (22), who studies and at the same time manage to help his brother in his shop, says, “I enjoyed my last year and celebrated a lot with my friends. We all friends were collecting money since October and then contributed and enjoyed.” A housewife, Sangeeta (45), whose husband owns a blacksmith shop, says, “We all friends gathered on eve and cooked food. Then our husband’s drank alcohol and we danced. This how we welcomed New Year.”
2009 was a very bad year for all of us. They all have faced lots of difficulties and they hope that the New Year comes with a relief to them. The recession was the bad part of the year which affected them a lot. They all managed to survive the recession. When being asked about how they survived, Sangeeta says, “Only we know how we managed to do that. We have two families depends upon the shop. Whenever something comes get divided into half. We cut down our food to manage the recession. It was worst as we’ve small kids and they used to be hungry. Government did nothing for us during such a crucial time.” They managed as they were having a habit of saving few pennies from their earnings. S. P. Jadav, says, “We were really tensed during recession. Everyday I used to think that how will I earn to feed my family. The prices of foods were touching the skies and bring them in very small quantity everyday.”
This was the and is conditions from decades. This condition has never been changed and guess will never change. On being asked about what their local cooperator, Anil Jadav, did for them in New Year Eve, they gave me a mixed comment. They have no expectations from the government in New Year. Government does nothing from them. They just remember them during elections and give them bribe. In the country where we have the biggest slum in Asia, the questions which arise are that what government is doing for their upliftment. This is what they ask the government everyday. But I think the local cooperator and municipal corporation are dumb and can’t hear their voices.
