An important day

Tomorrow is a really important day. I need to wake up really early today! I didn't notice this at first, but it's already the D-day. I have been highly excited about things. A lot of things crowd my mind right now, as I write this post. My other site, thecodepost.in is looking nice. I have to make a real good excuse for waking up so early. I will go for a morning walk. Yeah, sounds lame, but will do, at least for tomorrow. The big day demands it. Today I watched this movie called Triangle. It was pretty good, but predictable, the cinematography was great though. Had some great time at a friend's house. As was returning home I dreamed of having my own ship or at least a small steamer in which I could travel far and wide. I would also certainly like to go further and may be travel to Hawaii. Who knows, if I want it truly deeply, I may just get it. Let's see what comes. As for now I need to go to sleep, so that I catch some sleep. I know I won't be getting much, but probably it will be enough. It's not my interview after all, I can come back home right after the early morning and hit my bed once again. No one is going to stop me from doing that actually. So, yeah I am good, hopefully I will just make it. I am glad I wrote this down here, makes me feel kinda cool, lets off the steam. So Good Night to all of you and see you. Wish me luck. Bonne nuit!!!

Burhan Wani – The man and his mission

Burhan Wani – The man and his mission The death of a young ‘hero’? On the 8th of July, Burhan Muzaffar Wani died in the Valley of Kashmir. Thousands poured out on the streets to commemorate his services to the movement that he had come to symbolize of late. The relative calm of the region was shattered with curfews, killings and allegations of human rights abuses. His father was proud for the services his son had offered in the name of their faith, convinced that he would go to Heaven. Amidst all this, the romantic ideals of a young boy, just off his teens began to shake up the youth of the entire country, both in and beyond India. There is a lot of unrest in the Kashmir Valley recently, especially in the aftermath of the death, nay execution of Burhan. All of this is not unexpected in any way. In fact, this was foreseen. Even his glorification, his elevation to the status of a martyr in the service of Islam does not come as a surprise to me.

Lets just stop insulting Biharis

Introduction It is the land of enlightenment, the land of higher education, of spirituality. It is the land of immense wealth, great architecture, the birthplace of several faiths, the land where research on astronomy, literature, math, general sciences and philosophy flourished. The land is not Greece. It is not ancient Rome, Egypt, Sumer, Mesopotamia, or even the Central Americas. The land rests today between two states in the Indian Union - between Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal; the Indian state of Bihar.
This is a referenced article. For list of references, please check this link. Bihar has since earned a terrible reputation. No amount of whitewashing will remove that stain. It is now known as the dacoits’ paradise, the land of hooligans, bad roads, caste and religious strife, rampant crimes against women and almost all the social evils that one can probably think of. However, Bihar was nothing like this. Or at least it was not supposed to be like this. I will give a very brief introd…

The postman, Megha and I

This is a story that goes way back to 2001 or 2002. I was in the sixth standard. Yes, I do remember it quite vividly. It was funny, painful and a bit out of the ordinary – basically it had all the ingredients that allows a memory to stick a great while longer than others. In the process of my recollection, I may miss out a few pieces here and there, but it will be pretty accurate. Of course, the intention of this exercise is in no way to humiliate anyone else or point out the flaws about others’ actions. I now find it hilarious and I think so would you.
I studied in the Vivekananda Mission School, a private English medium school in Joka, on the outskirts of Kolkata. If you know the location of the Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata, you know the location of my school. I studied there till the twelfth standard. We had many students in our class (sixth). We were divided into several sections, ranging from A to F (not sure if it was F or G). But anyway, I was in section B, the sect…
