Flowers

The most striking feature of flowers is their color. You will find them laughing in the mid of a greenish world. They make you happy. Indian Roses (the deep red one) have always fascinated me. Six or seven years back my home had many Rose plants, almost 30-35. They were very small in size and were grown in an unorganized way. So if a person would enter in my home ground, he would rarely get any notice of those roses. But, come and sit, hey what is this, are there any rose plants around -- this was the common sentence of any new comer. I always took the privilege to become guide, and never I forgot to mention that those Rose plants were my work. My mom, papa and sister used to give a mysterious smile after mine that statement, but I was very fast to switch to other matter. In fact those Rose plants were hard work of my papa, mother and sister. I used to water them in the condition when the moral pressure on me becoming unbearable. In those years once a person came to my house for selli…

Marks --- The Supreme Factor

I still remember the words of one of my friend of BIT Sindri, (my undergraduate college) -"If she will know that some Professor will give 5 marks for attending some meeting/class, she will come back in the mid of her vacation days at home. A whole night route of 350kms will rarely matter". My friend has told some thing generic, applicable to many students and believe me marks(in exam) and grades are the most happening thing for many of the students of at least India. I remember one great incident. It was our ragging period. Some one told all students of our batch that you can get some question related matters at local market. This local market was almost 1.5km away from our hostel and was full of ultimate danger -- seniors. But, oh! god marks, many students went to market. Finally it was found that it was a game played by some of the seniors. I simply cannot enumerate all stories linked with marks. In my whole life I got 0 marks once in my class 4th, in Science paper.

91FM and VividhBharti

FM has revolutionized its importance. I remember those days when my mother used to tune in RADIO solely for the purpose of BBC Hindi and people felt this slightly out of date. But gradually over last 4-5 years the RADIO world has changed and you will find mini (micro) radio sets very common. In my childhood days I used to watch those part of movies which had lot of fight scenes. I simply disliked usual scenes and long conversations were simply bore. Then with time I got interested in VividhBharti which means to me complete melody. The most pleasant time hour in my undergraduate college, BIT Sindri, were sitting on my chair, doing something and hearing those eternal songs. I really salute people at VividhBharti for their great work. When I came here in IIITb, I found many things to entertain me. One is obviously my dearsome laptop with almost every time net connectivity and thus eventual connection to music webistes. However again the RADIO object got my attention and again it meant so…
