The time YOU enjoy wasting is NOT wasted time !
Gifts are hard to get and more importantly they
need to taken- care off really well.
Such is the case which happened with my recent gift – an Apple iPad .Now
, most you would go wow and gaga all over but take a moment and let me explain
it to you with a background .
I am a laptop person and this is what makes me
click . Adaptable and easy to use the laptop has been my companion since my
b-school days . When I got the iPad I thought I would use it every day for most
of my key things. This however, has till
date remained a thought. Whenever I go
and try to use it I just feel – laptop works better for me. It may be the
adaptability issue, or maybe I never fell in love with it or maybe I am not an
apple fan to put it together . But , then the key thing here is it’s a –
gift . A really special one.
So , I decided and got in touch with some of
my fellow Apple stars who tried all the tricks in the bag and made download the
‘best’ of the apps ,as they call .
Things improved - I configured my social media
– twitter , LinkedIn , Facebook and my
series of personal accounts . I downloaded Flipboard – a favorite now which
I regularly use and browse through. What I also got were a series of games. One
of them is the Real Racing 3 .
I love games – especially digital ones which
you can play on an iPad or may be a laptop . And yes , I got addicted to this game.
A typical car racing game with new fancy cars , nice choice of tracks and good
co-drivers . And then it started on and on.Yesterday, just a glance at my till
date time spent on this game drove me into a shock state . I had spent close to
18 hours on this game over a period of less than 4 weeks . I am and still in a
shock state !!
18 hours of my life wasted in a game of which
I learnt nothing new , unlearnt something old , strained my eyes and my back
and more importantly I could have done the world in those 18hours.
The first thought which came to my mind was –
DELETE this damn game ! Wrap and close
the iPad into the box and in it goes for a good time now. But then , I was the one who choose it . I
liked playing it . The experience made me feel wow and hence I came over almost
every day to this game. I drove well, moved levels , bought cars and earned
dollars. In short, I did all the game
was meant to do . Then why ponder over and lose your thoughts.
If you have taken a decision then be bold
enough to stand by it . Don’t always measure things in the scale that’s it’snot
meant to be . Life will be far simpler.
Each and every thing , each and every person have very different roles
to play in our life’s . If we start
measuring each of them then life would be far more complex.
Someone told me,that you should keep life simple and
straightforward. The more thinking you
do the more confused you become and the more complex your life and thoughts
are . Life was always simple. It’s just
that we have gone in search of things and people – who are actually not needed
by us . If at 1 in the night you have no one to call up and share something
that is bothering you , with a
close 1000+ friends on Facebook almost
similar on LinkedIn- then believe me it’s not worth it !! just not worth it
. have that one person who can take the
way you are , listen the things you wish to say and give you a smile back where
it belongs to – Life is and will be beautiful . ** Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all ! May God give us peace and happiness.. and lots of Modaks of course !
Often in life , whenever we have free time , we actually end up wasting it . And once , wasted we think we never really get 'free time ' these days.
We all are the same . Genuinely , by working hard on myself , I try whenever I have so called 'free time ' I take look at things / people / surroundings / nature , around us.
And it's in these I find and learn so many small things and stories . You know at certain places of high altitude you can actually see a star -studded sky . What's more . You can see ' shooting stars' .
I remember way back in my engineering college days , we used to wake up till late ( not necessary closing our engineering drawing projects , but to find a shooting star ) and we did , a couple of times.
The open space ( since the campus was close 100 acres ) far from the city , used to be an easy sight.
It was a sight so beautiful . You see and want to capture it but its long gone even before you can blink. Science says they are jus…
I always appreciate places and people where both vibe and sync in , with each other . More so , when in today's day and age you have new places mushrooming every nook and corner and at the same place shutting down.
Whenever I am visiting a place which I am 100% sure that I'll review , I love to do my reading / background check , if you call so as to better understand the 'brains' behind the venture and see how does the entire ecosystem works henceforth.
: Did you know:
The beehive's internal structure is a densely packed group of hexagonal cells made of beeswax, called a honeycomb.
: Hive :
The hexagonal beehive motif, used extensively in the decor of the restaurant, represents community bonding.
Hive Kitchen & Bar seeks to actively promote such a way of life with food promotions, regular musical recitals and performances, giving its diners and visitors to the bar something more to come together for.
After all , like we say , dine-in ; in a group an…
This may be easy to relate like other things in life but hard to implement like many things in life. On one of my recent visits to Shimla ( yes, I do visit this place when I am not in Jaipur ) I came across a beautiful couple whom I have been seeing for years now but never really got a chance to meet or know them . Shimla as we know is crowded so Mashobra is the place for people like me who appreciate serenity . They live in this beautiful area atop a hill with a home ( I am not allowed to call a house ) designed and done beautifully by the two of them . You meet them ( though they don’t like to be discussed or talked about and prefer living peacefully ) and you will know what it takes to be in a relationship , be married , raise kids and more importantly be with that one person all throughout thick and thin and yet everything stays afresh . Whenever I used to go to Mashobra all we did was to exchange some smiles and hand waving . Bad on my part , I never even said a hello or a go…
