Fear.


Fear of others will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. 
(Proverbs 29:25)




Fear.

At some point or the other everybody has feared something. No matter how fearless they say they are, at one point, everybody has said,"am scared".

Each one has their own definition of fear. Some are scared of darkness, some of water,of height, of electricity. Some are scared of loneliness, some of crowd, many of the unknown.

Fear, something that holds you back from taking a step further.

Fear seeps in when faith grows weak. It's again a fight between good and evil. It is when evil takes over good, you fear.

Fear, for me, is losing someone who cannot be replaced. To lose somebody who loves me more than i love him, who seeks nothing in return.
Fear, for me, is when i stand helpless. When i see things slipping out of my hand and i can do nothing to stop it, i just stand there,looking through the glasses, feeling the chills crawl through me and sweat drop down.

Fear, for me, is getting up one day and not able to face myself.
Fear, for me, is losing faith.

Faith wins over fear. It is the only weapon that can take over fear. 
Faith is what lets us face the unknown, to get up everyday, walk out into the world with confidence.
Faith is what makes us believe in the the plans we make.
Faith is what keeps us going.
Faith is something that makes us.

Faith.




He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. "
(Matthew 17:20)

Fair and Lovely....really?

Seen this commercial?
Am sure many of you would have seen it, had a good laugh, frowned or got grossed out.

Well, i was grossed out.

Being hygienic is one thing and being obsessed with "white" is another.
And comparison with coffee, i mean, who does that man, it's against mankind.

I really don't understand the whole obsession with becoming fair (read white). Everything HAS to make you fair, creams, talcum powders, deodorants, body lotions...soon they'll advertise biscuits and cereals with tag line going, it makes you fair. =|

So much of fair is unfair. How can you say fair is beautiful, who declared that, i say fair is ugly (refer to Robert Pattinson). We have enough ways of discriminating people. And it's not like it is anybody's personal choice, its the same as somebody's sex, its not like they have chosen it, nobody controls the melanin content of their body. (Amount of melanin in your body decides your color, which is again a gene game).

And like this whole cover-your-face-with-flour-to-look-fair wasn't enough, they launch this new "private part" cleaner with the most inappropriate ad (can't say ever, 'coz i really don't understand Hritik Roshan dancing to sell Hide n Seek). Girls do enough and spend enough on cosmetics and parlors to get the perfect look, this wasn't exactly the need of the hour. TV serials are anyways doing there bit in contributing to the color bias prevalent in the society ( refer Bidaai...sapna babul ka, i think that was the name of the serial), we do not need such products in the market.

People have to stop obsessing with color, it hardly matters. A girl need not look spotless white to be called beautiful,beauty is what she is inside, her thoughts, the way she holds herself that makes her pretty. White skin-u girl girl, girl heart-u black, even Dhanush said it (for those who don't know what am talking about, which world do you live in; those lines are from the song Kolaveri Di, sung by Dhanush).

For that ad, am sure the "white-ness" of *coughs* wouldn't have stopped any couple from love making, it would bother them now,not a major percentage though (am hoping). Color between emotions is not good, color in emotions is.

And not just love making, but drinking coffee too would be affected. =|

And for a guy, well there is a reason girls go gaga over the mills and boon cliche', tall & dark makes a guy handsome.

Even Micheal Jackson said i, "It don't matter, if you are black or white"

And even Lady Gaga, "you are beautiful in your way, 'coz GOD makes no mistakes, am on the right track baby, i am born this way"

(chose your star, there is one for every generation :-P)


Appealing, not so much to me, i would say bad lighting, pic is overexposed ;-)

It's anniversary time folks :)

Can't believe its already a year, it feels like yesterday...!!

That fresh feeling, those jitters, that happy feeling, that feeling of newness, that excitement mixed with that li'l bit of hitch, that shyness.

Can't believe its almost a year of post grad, it almost of year of me and Bangalore :)

Two rounds of exams, result jitters, CIA's, projects, crazy continuous presentations, last minute project rejections, unfruitful brainstorming's, research proposal,then some more rejections,walking out of group meetings saying "it's pissing off guys", cribbing, crying, whining, work-less and work-loaded internships , laughter, crazy random dancing, rowdy random singing, all done.
Almost everything in the "we are having a great time" list is checked!!

And still we complain, oh hell yes we do, you should hear us cribbing..it is entertaining. It is one of those things which can be promoted by the hoarding saying, "In 48 flavors" :P

No matter how we complain, when we come back home for vacations (like we are now) and sit doing nothing (which NEVER happens) or tell friends/family college stories, we have a huge smile on our face, that says it all :)

I think cribbing about how bad college is, is one of the things that puts us in the cool category, you just have to crib about college. One month of internship taught us,at least me, no matter how much hectic college schedule is, it is any day better than working. It is something like, you can hate, you can crib...but you can't escape the memories.....okay that was a very very bad version of that song (Enrique, not like i care, but forgive me =|)

And this is us, Batch of 2011-2013



This to one year that went past, and to the one that is still to come :)

Lets March On together :P


p.s: I know my friends from Uni who will read this will pull my leg, but i miss you guys, there i said it.
