Yup pears are my inspiration to blog today… and why not …..Because I just set my eyes on really small pears this morning.
Where? In the office …
Specifically? In the café…
I had to double check whether they were really really ripe or kaccha. Well that said and done, I got to my desk and here I am about to bore people about these pears those green small cute ones of course with their photos. Unfortunately I don’t have a digy cam to show u guys exactly how cute they look.
Generally If ever I get attracted to something irrespective of its property of life I get into this habit of raving about it. Be it a person I have met or a film I have seen or a conversation I have heard. There are days when I fall inn love with what I have written well and these are mailed home for mom’s feed back. Her appreciation is something I look forward to. Or at times its my very close pals who have to stop work and look into what I have to say and comment on it. Poor things!!! They have to do it as I keep pestering them as I am in love with what I sent them.
Appreciation is something everybody cherishes. However, the 12 letter should come from the heart. So the choice is ours. I don’t mean to say that we should hover around and haunt people for praises with our “fantastic” display. But everybody has special people and they are the ones who give you the best criticism. It’s always constructive and that the best part about it.
Whenever I go for a competition I make sure my mom or my bro is with me. If that is an impossibility then I get them to hear what I’m gonna perform. Even if it is a piece of writing and it is mailed home (now that doesn’t mean that I mail home every single post of mine).
Well now the question would be why she doesn’t talk about her dad. Well, my dad is always there to give me that extra confidence I need at times to just click that submit button. Enough of family and more family. Some times it is the best subject to talk about.
Even if I get a kick bragging about mine the listeners may not be that supportive. That’s because everybody has a family which is special in different ways.
But the pears are really cool. They are just so sweet I just can’t take my eyes of it today. They resemble those ping pong balls but have an oval shape to them and are a little heavier than those white balls we play with. They are sweet too. Out of all those myriad varieties I love to see these and hog on those big bell-shaped green ones.
Any body who comes to my cubicle today would never leave without a word about these green things on my table.
and happy Friday
The mouse manic that was i is turned into a keyboard maniac because I have learned typing now. Typing is a handy asset or is the word skill I think it is and it makes our work on the keyboard a pleasure. I’m enjoying that kind of joy now that I have finished my typing training.
Typing and I could never get along well initially because I never used to make use of the keyboard to type. Playing games was the main priority then and even to an extend now. Whenever I get some free time pacman any day is welcome with open arms So the need to learn typing never occurred until I reached my Bachelors final year where there was a project to do and to submit in print. Nevertheless, in spite of my poor keyboard skills I managed to submit my assignment on time I think before time and that was a success.
The need to learn to type dissolved there at that moment when I got my project certified and bonfided.
Then came those chatting days when I had managed to acquire some friends and had to type fast as that was the thing about chatting. “Talking with words” as I always put it “with the speed of the tongue”. Thankfully even my so called chat friends weren’t expert typists or trained in typing but they achieved that skill through chatting. Practice makes the man perfect therefore I got along well with them in terms of speed. But chatting did definitely increase my speed and that was an advantage.
However, typing without looking at the keyboard and only at the screen at a good speed is indeed a good skill to brag about.
I know my father, who types very fast but still only with his forefingers . I know my friends who take an extremely long time to type…..each word…..Mind u the software that teaches to type makes us lose our confidence in ourselves and slowly raises it while we attain a certain speed.
So that‘s where I am and I ‘m proud to say that the joy of typing is a joy in itself….it is like any other challenge we take up. There were lots of hurdles and the time spent on it was like a huge load …….but then when one receives a congratulations in the end for all that effort done ………..the feeling is ecstasy.
On the day I finished my typing there we others too who were struggling to get past that 50 words and the happiness that spread on all our faces as we received our certificates from that printer has no words to explain.
“Hi it’s me again……………….same time same day next week…”
These are the standard dialogues of the anchor persons seen on TV…..wonder why people just copy and not change their style. Is it that all the combinations for a good announcer been exhausted from the dictionary? I really don’t know.
It is like nowadays, we the listeners or the couched potatoes can mouth their dialogues with them or guess at what they are going to say next.
So if this is criticism, I think it is constructive but what is it that will make them change their current style or their way of presentation?
Or is it that they stick to the same old mundane style because their audience love them and don’t want them to change?
I think that is it sometimes… because nowadays the standard dialogue one hears from people all around is that they don’t have time and it is this timeless-ness that turns them into copycats ………or has people been lacking creativity ………Questions questions questions….!!!!
There should be answers to all these questions because it is just one universe and we are to have all the queries within it. Now this doesn’t mean that the answers has to be in today or tomorrow but maybe some day we might be up there in heaven (or who knows hell at that particular time?)
So questions can always be answered but the fact remains why the stereotyping always now and for ever……
why are theses here because i’m talking about arrangements and arrangements could be in pearls too…….
the flowers are awesome to use arjun’s term……….i meant the arrangement……….
nowadays i’m fascinated by flowers arrangements. not those typical ones but ones like these above i just sont know why but my job requires me to look at them sometimes once in a while and therefore here i am collecting them as wall paper and screen saver material. so as one doesn’t have to stretch one’s imagination to realize that these are my current screensaver pics …..
so what is so special about them …..i really dont know …..there is something that attracts me to such arrangements nowadays….maybe i’m tired of seeing those old fashioned arrangements…who knows ……..i get bored with things easily..
and not only things but with habits and people ….may be that is an aquarian trait……..but even if it is i think it is too late to change now as habits die hard……….
habit is the only word i know of which looks what it means………
ok here we go …i ‘ll demonstrate……. oh its
ok here we go
………..We remove the H and A BIT remains………..
……….We remove the A still …….IT remains………..
this arrangement is beautiful. i dont think this is an arrangement but sure is because it looks like one though as if somebody has just plucked them from the farm or the fields…..
this is just wonderful ………..i am fascinated with the colour………and the roses …
they are the most difficult of palnts to grow i guess ,,….the most careful of all taken care of …….
that’s all i can think of now ……….
Once in a way we should have fun and the best way to have fun is, if we have no other crazy thing to do….. is…… watch a movie. A movie that can really take one out of the reality and place you elsewhere for a period of time….
If that should be the definition of an ideal movie, I guess one should go watch the first half of “salaam namaste”……..or the whole of “no entry”…..by the way both are names of Bollywood movies which were recently released………I guess all over the world…….a few weeks back……….
Now we had an argument, argument I guess is too harsh a word, I should rather put it as a discussion with a teacher once upon a time when in school. So by now whoever is reading this would have understood who this “we” is ……..we the students of my class in STD XII….. I guess…..we were just talking and of course it was an English class so we talked about drama which is one of the genres of literature and which eventually led to the movies…..in all languages….Hey I never thought about it that way before….u know something, there are some things which we never think about deeply and so never have an opinion about it,…..but there would be a trigger, a hidden thought about any passing scene or talk or action…..now if I say that’s what I think…..it would be 100% true.
Back to having fun…..one can have fun in innumerable ways according to what stuff one is made of …….now by stuff I mean the sOmeThInG that is fed into the brain while growing up in this society…….that is like a sentence plucked out of a sociology text book! But that is the way it is…….we never know what all weird thoughts one individual has in the entirety of his/her lifetime,….but that’s personal nothing to cribbing about……..so when there are millions of people in this world and there will be no shortage of ideas….now whether they are appreciated by the other half of the community or not is the big question????? Usually they are not ……..people are a bit jealous as always….when others do crazy things …..Appreciation is a like success …..is elusive in nature….something fake and sometimes from the wrong people.!!!!
….but if a movie or a book or something like that can purge u like Aristotle says then that would be the best experience ever…I guess and that’s why Aristotle did say that once upon a time and it still is not over layered by any other theories…..
Now, why I started off telling about movies …..because I saw a movie last night and that was salaam namaste ..the person sitting right next to me has seen it thrice already so I really didn’t know what made him come once again…u bet I knew the reason,…it was a team thingy from office and going with a team is a different experience all together even if it is a movie one has watched alone or with dear ones….
The movie was not all that bad as it was made up to be. It is a one time watch and take my word there are areas where one could laugh and will laugh…
So jobless people have to entertain themselves with movies at least every weekend so ….
Any movie-going is a fun activity and I’m sure we all do it once in a while.
If not! take a break from the small screen….stop being a couched/ mouse potato and enjoy the Broadway or the silver screen…….
