Of Old Songs And New People

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

– “In my life”, The Beatles.

How do I begin this one.. Hmm.. Sometimes the most difficult step one has to take is the first one. Like literally, while your age is still counted in months and when you don’t have enough words in your vocabulary yet, that’s the most difficult step right? To get up and start walking. And the day we start walking is the day our elders realize, “The kid has potential ha.” And then it just never stops. Did you think of *that* when you were learning how to take your first step? Nah, you were more like “Yay, watch me fall on my face”.

And that’s life.

Much of life is short term. And as John Maynard Keynes said, “In the long run, we’re all dead”. Well he probably meant to infer something about economics of the world and stuff but we can use a fancy quote anywhere 😛 (more…)

Interns - Nvidia 2k17

The Internship (Sort of)

Just like every of my other recent stories, this one will begin with the mandatory “It’s been long since I last wrote.” 😛 I’ll then say that it has been like what 1,2,3.. well 6 months since I wrote 😛 Then I’ll move on to saying about things that happened these last 6 months. That’s the essence of my every usual story, I know 😉

This one will be no different. So now that I’ve already cleared the air and said what I’ll be saying about, let me start saying it 😛

Well most of the people reading this already know enough about me to know that this year is the year I complete my engineering. For the new people in my life and/or my blog, first of all, a warm welcome :) And second of all, well I’ve already mentioned that this year is when I complete my engineering 😛

So what happened these last 6 months that’s worth sharing? What happened is the most common thing in any engineering student’s life when you think of “6 months” 😛 Plus the title is a giveaway. Yea I had my final year internship :) (more…)


Last 60 Days in Nirma – A Good Bye Note

3 and a half years.

So it’s really been that long since I wrote about my first 60 days in Nirma: First 60 Days of My Journey in Nirma

To think of it, reading that post again makes me wonder how true it is when we mock the theory of relativity saying that time flies when you’re enjoying.. It almost feels like yesterday when we had to come to Nirma on Saturdays for ‘Yoga’ classes and how we used to play basketball before Yoga.. When we made our very first ‘electronics’ project 😛 All those water level indicators and electronic dices 😉 When we used to buy our so called ‘tut-pages’ and yea those semi-log sheets… and how we then turned to not buying them and instead borrowing one from our friend who borrowed two from his friend who had three and God knows if anyone of us actually bought any tut-pages or graph papers anymore and maybe it was just a glitch in the law of conservation of material 😛 Of course, there’s this other glitch where even if nobody from your batch has their files complete, and even though nobody neither knows the answer to any of the lab questions nor does anyone have any source to find answers from… somehow every single student of your batch will still get their files complete and signed the same day 😉

It feels like yesterday.. (more…)

Reading my old diary

Reading My Old Diary

“Write simple”, I said to myself.

But its difficult now. Knowing that you’re reading it. Acknowledging that someone right now is reading what I wrote resting on my bed, next to a charging point, sipping through a cup of tea just like every normal evening. I can almost feel you watching through the reflections of the mirror in the room, just like Aberforth watching over Mr. Potter.

Even though I don’t like sharing personal information, I’ve told you enough. And now I feel like you’d know me, know a part of me, know what I’m thinking right now, know what I’m feeling right now. Or maybe you still only know what I want you to know, right?

But its all in my head, I convince myself. That way, I can keep my focus on writing what I want to, share whatever I want to. By imagining that nobody is gonna read it… even though I want you to. And I know you are, aren’t you.. right now? That’s the writer’s dilemma. You want people to read you. You want people to say “You write so good!” and yet you don’t want their acknowledgement and their existence to affect your next writings. Same for me, I like it when people tell me that they read my blogs. And I guess it’s the writer’s skills on how he tackles this dilemma and continues to write..

Me, I’m solving it by temporarily imagining that this is just a piece of writing that’ll go straight to my diary. Yes I keep one. Since June 27th this year.


Just a moment.

That’s a nice song playing in my collection. Let me copy this to my favourites playlist. (more…)

Beatutiful Rains

Rains, Sisters, Mathematics

June, 16th.

Clear sky, hot summer, vacation time. I was working on a team project at my friend’s home. It wasn’t unusual for me this vacation to be busy, working. In the past 1 month I was busy (read enjoying) with my sister’s wedding. Today, I was busy on a project. Just as we were getting started with the project, my friend gets a call. It was regarding our semester 4 results. Yeah, you can check the date again, its June 16 I’m talking about!

So we packed the project work and ran straight for a cab to Nirma. After all it was the ‘suspense of the month’ moment. All those core subjects studied this semester, but my mind was on the one subject that we had all studied since we were born. A subject, the last version of which was taught to us this sem. Yes. Mathematics. Maybe I was more than curious to know how my last Mathematics exam would result.

AC cab, college visit after a month, what else do you need to forget the heat outside the cab huh? It felt like August. Cool, kind of rainy… or maybe it was just my imagination. (more…)

Not There Yet

Very complicated.

Ask me, when it comes to making decisions in your life, there are times that make you think too much to come to the right decision. And then there are those times when you don’t think at all and make the right decision. And then there are those, when you overthink a situation and lose the ‘right’ time.

Not that life is meant to be simple.. because it isn’t. Life is full of those turns that you make because you have to in order to reach your destiny or because you need to or because someone else did. Maybe because someone leads you there. You never know how influencing people can be. You like it. You regret it. You want to forget it. You want to remember it. And sometimes you just don’t know what is wrong with your life! But you still take the turn. I would.



Ok! I’m Late, Here Is My Report On Community Service

I hope I don’t get in any serious trouble for being so late in submitting this report. Well, actually I am not late yet coz there isn’t any deadline declared as of yet.

Anyways I will be sending the report to the concerned authority by tomorrow 11:15 (I hope!)

What is the report?

Oh. Ya.

‘Community Services’ better known as the supplementary course of our 3rd semester curriculum (supplementary has a very deep meaning but lets cut it short and say you just need to pass it to pass.. and no credit involved. So 0 credit. Doesn’t add to your SPI or anything. That’s it. But you need to pass.) was the job given to us, 3rd sem students to serve the society… for 15 hours.


15 hours isn’t a big deal.

Only.. it should have been. At least I feel so.


Minions on vacation

Things I Did This Vacation – Summer 2014

Its been about 2 months since my last semester’s exams ended. And for the past 2 months I and everyone from my college have been enjoying a nice break from the busy college hustle.

There’s one thing important that everyone does in their vacations – something interesting. And at the end of the vacation, if you are suddenly bombarded by a simple question about what you did the last summer, in my case I would normally take a few seconds and say – ‘nothing much’. Then I myself would think – ‘Really?’ And that would end up with me struggling to remember every small or large thing I did during the vacations. (more…)


An Year Has Gone, An Year To Go

4th June 2014, that’s today. 4th June 2013, that was last year. Somewhere, somehow, something may have happened that day in my life, in everyone’s life. I remember the first rains in Ahmedabad last year which stuck thunder at about 9 PM on a day which I have not forgotten yet, maybe time will fade my memories but I’ll type it before it fades off…

Last year, the sun was as bright as it is today, though theoretically the degrees were lower. The moon was as hidden as today, just because there wasn’t much time in our busy lives to gaze at it. Yes it still exists, shining all over us. Last year, I was at my home, today, I am again at my home, well actually I have always been at my home. Last year, I used to message my friends on Facebook, this year is no different.
