Life Rocks @ a different place ...........still.....

No worries !!
I am here !! I am back !!

There was / may be , still a brief stay or hault but that's the way life is !! :-)
A lot has gone by in the few fast forward weeks.

A lot more is still awaited :-)
So where was I or rather where I might be ..... that only 2 persons can tell - Karan and God !!
So I am here , why disturb god !!

@ Train Journey

It was a long journey .... a fatiguing one but as I always say you never pass judgements so quickly !!

So We were 4 people...and then there was this sweet bubbly girl - MIND IT ...a lawyer in making.... wow !! These days you don't find that a sweet bubbly lawyer girls :-)
Besides being a sweet girl the one thing which I liked was the fact that her Dad was an IPS !! man !! I love/respect/admire/ these IAS /IPS people. The real India.

The journey was long...very long...and Indian trains you know....how "FAST" they are ...
From evening assorted voices started doing the rounds......which contuniued till we got down at our destination....poor people who were still there .......
"Chai Chai " Tea - Tea "........"garam garam samosa"...."paani paani " uff....aur kuch bhi hai....

Then there was this person whom I think might have been a good bet at one of those top B-Schools !! like Symbi's and all what was his tagline - " Namkeen wala idhar hai , aapka dhyaan kidhar hai " - BELIEVE ME . His basket of namkeen was full when he started his trip and with this tagline the basket was near it's end when he returned !! huh !!
Marketing is a tough nut to crack .

What else - as always the train food was --yyuukkkk -- but we had some delicious cherries which were sweet as the owner.

PS - I COULD HAVE TAKEN THE AIR ROUTE BUT WITH ABOUT 6 BAGS LOADED TO CAPACITY I HAD NO OPTION BUT TO TAKE LALU JI's HELP.

@ Pune -

As always Indian stations are every busy,ever crowded and ever and ever chaos.Pune was no exception.
But as sometimes , I was a bit happy in this chaos as well . How ?
Well,CARS. What better way if someone comes to pick you up :-) The entire journey's pines away....

The car was loaded but what about the rest of the load. You can't expect an Esteem to behave like a Bolero. So ,bring a Bolero.

And it actually came. How ? The sweet kind-hearted lawyer girl came to the rescue. And it was a sigh of relief.

And what next ? Come on ....we need to sit in the cars and go :-)

@ Campus -

Pune and rains are like bread and butter.So need I say more.
The "mausam" was lovely and so was the campus. Beautiful.Wait !!

Hostel ? Anyone ? Yup !! Let's c the hostel dude .

or the Hall of residence as it's called ! It's not just any hostel. It's more than a hostel.
With a huge room , attached washrooms and ample space, decent food what more could you ask for in a hostel !!


@ THE PLACE

Pune is a special place. For two reasons . second one is .........Went to meet them at @ private place. Lovely ambience , great food ! Cool mausam !

More to come....

PS - It's not always good to think what you listen When you actually see for yourself it's then the pictures get clear !! I know NOW.You remember .

This "message"is for the person who understands it well.And I know the actual intended person would know now.....

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
