At last... My own new blog!

Finally! After so many attempts to try new things all my life, here I am at the brink of starting something new. Blogging. 
Well its probably out of jealousy(God forgive me!) that I have found this newly found interest. You see many of my friends have their own blogs and quite good ones at that! 
So much for intros, I'll post something that has influenced my life to an extent that it has changed my way of looking at myself. 
If you had known me from my school days, you would have known me to be one of those lonely, fun-hating introvert guys who stick to reading books as their sole hobby. Well, maybe I was/am like that. The difference now is that I have Someone far greater than my imagination, who has filled me with something that I am going to have till I am here.
Faith. Hope. Love.
It all started with a 'Why?' It always does. And then, like that feeling when you start giving in, like that step when you start over again, like that moment when you are just waking up, it comes to you like a brand new day! 
When Love enters your heart, it is the most wonderful feeling! 
By love, I meant one that has existed since time immemorial, one that bestows you with a peace that surpasses all understanding, one that has the power to transform.
I know, philosophy, right in my first blog post, is not what you would like to read but,   


 

Having said that, I will just close off with a small stanza from one of my favorite songs:



Well, today I found myself

After searching all these years

And the man that I saw

He wasn't at all who I thought he'd be

I was lost when You found me here

And I was broken beyond repair

Then You came along

And You sang Your son
g over me

It feels like I'm born again

It feels like I'm living

For the very first time

For the very first time in my life



Cheerio! :)

Another Imperfect Musing

Why do I love watches? There is a small and seemingly lame fact to this. Before I tell you the fact, let me tell you a small incident from my past. My grandfather, Mr. W. Thomas Victor loved watches too. I may easily say that this trait runs in our family(maybe it does!) but it is not just a hereditary thing. It is certainly not an irony that my grandfather had a "Grandfather clock" at his place - A big free standing, weight driven pendulum clock with the pendulum held inside the tower of the case. Every half an hour it would do a ding-dong and every hour it would strike as many ding-dongs as the time it showed. I have such beautiful memories of me waking up at 12 in the night just to count the number of ding-dongs.
My grandfather used to share certain things that would put an encyclopedia to shame.

There was this time when I was about to start the usual brother-sister argument(for fun) and my grandfather stepped in. It all started with my sister using the phrase "wait …

"At the end of one HYSTERICAL journey #engineering here I am at the start of another. #roadtrip to Mt. Abu!"- I Tweeted.
I had always wanted to go out on a road trip. Well I had a lot of reasons.
Let me just try to make a bullet list as to how I decided to go out on one: (Engineering has taught me something! :P)   Firstly,  My Dad was a biker and he had been on many road trips the longest being, a trip from Coimbatore(Tamil Nadu) to Goa. On their bikes! So I had to go.We did not have the audacity required resources to go on bikes so we pooled up to go in a 'compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle' (euphemism for  Chevrolet Tavera) for our trip to Mt. Abu.  My friends and I had been planning out a trip since our college second year. And planning was all we did!
I could make another bullet list as to why we didn't/ couldn't work out our plans but we'll leave it at that.Engineering.
Yes. Having slogged for four years we all thought we deserved a trip. If you have been an eng…

Absurdly Random B-School Musings

Day 138 of my B-school journey: 
Even as term 4 for PGPM 2018 is underway, it seems like yesterday when I entered the campus of Great lakes institute of management, Gurgaon. I think it will be fair for me to say that by now our learning curve has grown exponentially (I was actually looking for an even more superlative word) for having studied twenty two courses in these four and a half months. In the aftermath however, we have sixteen ‘not so frequently opened’ yet bulky pillow sized books for our perusal (I honestly don’t know when and how these will actually be used.)
But as I recount the seemingly short experience here, I struggle to describe how awesome this journey is panning out to be. I am unable to elucidate that feeling where, on a Friday night - 11:53 PM to be exact - you are still in the Academic block and ceaselessly trying not to miss the midnight deadline for a class group project and at the same time keeping your subconscious mind alert about the pre-reads you have for n…
