Hope.. Recession.. and Suit..

Pharma and Food Industry are believed to be recession free. Google and MAMA brand have proved themselves as recession proof! Just one observation and addition to the above mentioned big names:- Formal Suits for MBA student during recession time!

When I got the formal SUIT of our B-School, I had the HOPE that I will wear it in all the interviews before the final one! B-School had the HOPE of making me wear that SUIT for those interviews! and here comes RECESSION! If at all, the recession continues for say 10 years! My HOPE will compel me to buy that SUIT even when its RECESSION..

Till now I have used my Suit only for the photo shoots! That's because the placement season is yet to come! But still, 1.5 years have gone!

Anyway, I am sure placements will be fine this year. But what if there was Recession again?? No (few) placements again?? Will the college ask us not to buy SUITS?? After all, it is sheer stupidity to waste money in suit that is brought only for photo shoots! Here comes HOPE! And that is the only reason why the juniors will buy the same suit.. for "placements interview" even though it is recession..

You may be a pessimist. But you have the tendency of not avoiding the factor of optimism which is hiding somewhere in the form of HOPE!

(Formal Suits are college uniforms in Indian B-Schools, but are rarely used on daily basis)

who cares! After all you don't need formal SUITS to make profits.. you don't have profits in RECESSION.. and you are not advised to HOPE in this scenario

Some businesses have crucial growth drivers that makes them recession proof.. Some businesses have that HOPE factor which plays with emotions and drives the business.. All other are in loses (in recession)

So as the Legen.. wait for it.. dary quote goes.. SUIT UP!

(Readers(if any) are advised not to get into technical or financial terms as I neither play with machines nor do I play with numbers! Discussion based on emotions is encouraged which does not imply that I play with them)

Waiting still.. or Still waiting.. Wait is long.. Will is strong..

Days into months
Months into years
I come here daily
to watch my fears..

Wait was when she was far
Wait was when she was gone
Whenever I felt I was alone
Again that craving Wait was born!

Wait is in eyes
Wait is in mind
Wait makes you useless
Wait is to unwind..

Wait is love
Wait is hope
Wait is practically everything
That has no scope..

Wait is not to find
Wait is when you care
Wait is not to look
Wait is to faithfully stare..

Wait is for the loved ones
Wait is for someone who was always yours
Wait is like a growing disease
That even passing time can not cure..


.. Waiting

Life is selfish
Heart was kind
You have your own views
But the correct logic is mine..

It was difficult to earn
more difficult to spend
your bills are unavoidable
and my bills are like fine??

Your career
my hindrance
My career
your responsibility??

Then you started drinking coffee
I started to sip Tea
Did you ever realise that
We became you and I forgot We..

I stuck in poetry
You got into fiction
Both in different worlds
with full of contradiction

Its enough now, Don't fool..
Everything will be fine..
provided,you take yours back,
and let me have mine..

Dark interpretation of Russel Peters!

Russel Peters legendary dialogue:-

"That's an Indian person convincing you of shit. You ever try to buy something and you go like "all right, give me the best price" "*indian accent* Sir, Im telling you, final price, best price, take it and go. Take it... and go. take it and go."

I was laughing like hell. Repeating the words again and again. "take it and go. Take it... and go. Take it and go" So funny.. Do we look like this? I have never sold anything to anybody, never convinced in such a way that I say that sentence.. Take it and go..

The second favorite Indian line of Russel is "Somebody is gonna get a hurt real bad.. Somebody". So funny. What's so dark about it? Now I will just repeat the lines with a classic photo.

Im telling you, take it and go. Take it... and go. take it and go

Somebody is gonna get a hurt real bad..



I try to be that
I try to be this
I don't want to be me
That is all I wish!

I try to be him
I try to be her
Am I now better?
I am still not sure!

I try to study this
I try to study all
For the sake of it
I can't even recall!

I try to follow
Not one,but many herds
I am living for them
While my life is in words!

I always try,and not achieve
That is why I am full of complication
I always try to be that man
But end up being his mere reflection!

Is it worth?

After reaching the top,I realized that there are so many tops... and very less trees on each top... then why should we aim for the top? just to look beyond the mountains? but It's blank... How should I make my fight worth? or should I stay alone on the top? or should I stay with my trees at the bottom?

Beyond Technology.. and Emotions..


It hurts when you are away from your family. It hurts when you far away from your family. It hurts a lot when you remember them everyday. It hurts the most when you remember them when you are about to sleep.

Long Messaging Service(SMS)
You must be wondering what technology has to do with the emotions, or feelings or family. I was not aware of it till the day when I received the longest SMS of my life. Yes it was sent by my Aai(mother/mom whatever in other language,does not matter). It was her first message from her new cell some 5-6 years ago. She was not very much interested in SMSing but she did it. She was learning to send SMS. When I saw the message, I was the happiest person on the earth. It was indeed the longest SMS.No words. No "smileys". No "TC,good byes,love yous". It was a plan simple blank message that brought tears in my eyes!

ApoorvaBook (FB)
It was a very wierd moment when I saw my father on the Facebook. I did not know how to reply. Apoorva Dixit and Avinash Dixit are now friends. (Think over that sentence). I had just mentioned to him once that I have uploaded my photos in Facebook. And then I realized the reason why he is here. Just to see me, my photos. It was indeed a special moment for me. Because I had some 450 odd friends on FB and when I checked out his profile, it was only me! He made me special that day! His simple blank profile with my photo in the friend list brought tears in my eyes!
