a life..

1

a life...Early morning. Around 7.30 AM. Somewhere on Nagar Road, Pune.

The old man picks up his lunch box and shoulders his hammer. He quickly bows to the God’s idol in the corner, says a quick prayer and hits the road. A day just like any other day.

This is the story of any of the men in the photo. Only hammer gets replaced by something else like a handbag, a broomstick, a bag of goods, a vehicle or just an id card. But the story remains the same. No matter h0w glossy, glassy and classy your work environment is, your story is same as this old man.

He goes to work, works hard, gets his pay and thanks god at the end of the day for giving him power enough to earn his bread. Does he have regrets? Wishes? a bucket list? May be. He wishes he could do a lot of things other than his daily work. He does not get the chance. But does that make him regret his life? Most probably not. Because he knows that there is no use of regrets or negative feelings, they will just spoil the taste of your life. Live it as it comes to you, strive to be better, strive to be worthy of a better life.

Life is not as simple as it seems, or may be, it is.

मराठी पाऊल पडते पुढे…. Krushnaa Patil conquers Mount Everest

19

गर्जती तोफांचे चौघडे………

मराठी पाऊल पडते पुढे………

Congratulations to Krushnaa Patil, a 19-year-old girl from Pune (this is what nearly all newspapers and channels call her),  for *conquering* Mount Everest.

On Thursday morning, Krushnaa was on top of the world, literally, becoming only the second person from Maharashtra to scale Everest and also the first woman from the state to do so. She was the second youngest Indian woman to reach the peak. Surendra Chavan of Pune was the first person from the state to conquer Everest in 1998.

😀  😀  I am proud of you, Krushnaa.  Kudos!!  😀  😀

➡ A friend of Krushnaa has written about her at DNA News.

➡ She has been blogging about her journey at her blog The Burning Face. (I am not sure why she chose this name for her blog ❓ )

Times of India also reported that “Krushnaa’s tall feat has come at a cost”. Her parents took a loan of 30 laks to send her for this expedition!!! Government should do something for this type of initiatives.  😐  😐

Here are some pictures from her blog:

Ganpati Bappa Morya!!

This year, for first time in life, I was not at home for Ganesh Chaturthi.

Early morning of Ganesh Chaturthi, I was standing in the balcony of my flat. I heard some noise of children in distance. Soon a small rally of young kids passed the road in front of me. One adult was carrying a small statue of Lord Ganesha carefully.All kids were jumping about him. They were *shouting* in chorus “Ganapati Bappa Morya” as loudly as possible.

The scene moved me. Funny eh? It should have made me smile, not sad.

But it did both.

I smiled and next moment I felt sad.

Every year on this day, as far as I remember, me and my brother and some of neighbourhood children go to bring Ganesha home.
Chorus of his name(Ganpati Bappa Morya) while bringing him,
people looking admiringly smiling and joining in while passing our little rally,
every child dancing in front,
mummy doing Pooja before entering in home,
decorating whole house for the festival,
going every home in the area in groups to do the Aarati,
full stomachs with Prasaad,
going to watch different programs arranged by Public Festival Groups,
and more….

Last year, my elder bro held Ganesha while bringing him home

All memories just started dancing in front of my eyes. So many years Igrew up doing all this and never realized how important the day is in my life. I didn’t dare to call home as I was sure I would cry listening to sounds at home.

I am really feeling sorry Bappa, I know I am much lazy in doing all things people do for you but still I love you. Morya!!!

On lighter side, my roommate brought home Brand New Apache RTR 160. (The reason I didn’t went home was I wanted to be with him while purchasing his first bike with his own money 🙂 )

Come on, join me..

Ganapati Bappa…

Morya!!!

Note: I am currently very busy and my PL is always sitting with me these days. So I am writing this when he is away 😛 So sorry for not commenting and replyig. Will do it soon. Cheers.

First day back to office and blogspot blocked :(

26

Hiyya. I am finally back to office after a week long break because of illness. Well, I got cured on first day back home but who can convince my mom that I don’t require any more healing?
So I was forced to keep my head down for a week and I obeyed. Not that I was scared of mum, it was raining continuously outside and there was no way I could have enjoyed anything much. Not alone at least. 😛

Also a note: Blogger is blocked in my office due to some problems( someone wrote abusive comments about my company and they simply blocked it), I can read but commenting is not allowed. Why don’t u all blogspot guys move to wordpress instead? 😀

Today is boring day and I am missing home very much. Few days ago, I posted few photos of my area. Now have a look at it again and see the difference 🙂

not out 50 : Different Things once more

26

50! This is my 50th post! And for me its a great achievement. And I just noticed that Life Love and Logic is about to reach 10,000 visits soon.

There is no pattern in my blog and posting. But I honestly tried making one. Different Things! I want it to be one of the identities for this site.

So on occasion of 50, I am posting something that will definately make you smile.

Different Thing 1: Photo Thing:  Children and their rally 🙂

I was at my home place this weekend and I saw these sweet children of some school. A rally was arranged by school to make people aware of social issues like Population, Trees and much more(I forgot 😛 )

I remembered the days of childhood when we used to participate in these types of rallys 🙂  While passing from our colony, we boys used to wave at mothers standing in front of our homes looking at their children proudly. Sweet days, sweet memories……………

Different Things 2: Another Photo Thingy: Green Green Everywhere

My home is surrounded by fields. You would love to live there in winter and also in Rainy season. Its all green everywhere you see. This year, rain is bit low and things have just started getting green. Fields aren’t getting up yet, so they are still little black. Have a look at it. 🙂

All photos are taken by me and I am thankful of my camera phone Sony Ericsson K750i.
I haven’t put copyright or watermark on images, but I will like to request anyone intending to use them, please drop me a note here.

A walk at 9.30 pm

22

Note: Looking back at old posts, today, on 19 September 2008, I still think this is my most favorite post till date!!

I usually leave my office around 8 to 8.30 pm everyday. And I always walk the way back home which is not so far (just 1.5 km approx) from office. Listening to Radio Mirchi is my usual timepass while walking and I never really notice whats happening around.

Yesterday, something was different with my brain, my thoughts. I completed my work before 5.30 and was free to leave at 6. But no. Things can not go so easy if you are working in software industry. As I was about to leave, my team-lead came with news of some code rework we needed to do. Hell! I started again and continued until I realized it was quarter past nine and I was the only one who was still working. Silently I stopped working and left my seat.
