अंतर्मन का अंतर्द्वंद

तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय
असतो मा सद्गमय
मृत्यो मा अमृतंगमय

यही है दोस्तों मेरे अंतर्मन का अंतर्द्वंद ... इसी द्वन्द में उदिग्न हूँ
as usual
what's at stake ?
"...a day every day..."
nothing more nothing less

I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference

The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost, published in 1916

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

When was the last time, you did something for the first time??

So When was the last time, you did something for the first time?

think about it folks...till then...i m reading the story....

Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly

Life is short, Break the rules,
Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly,
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably,
And never regret anything that made you smile.

-- Movie "Guzaarish" 19Nov 2010

It's collation of quotes from many sources....which ends with quote from Mark Twain...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

She walks in beauty

Lord Byron narrated in (1814) ...wonderful poem...sing it folks... :) to your beloved one....and enjoy the joy...
I wish some day I will be able to say something similar with so much passion...

She walks in beauty—like the night
  Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
  Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to the tender light
  Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
  Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
  Or softly lightens o'er her face—
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
  How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek and o'er that brow
  So soft, so calm yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow
  But tell of days in goodness spent
A mind at peace with all below,
  A heart whose love is innocent.

To Be One With Each Other

What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

          - George Eliot

so folks now you know...where and what Hirdu is doing.... :) Hirdu is reading all sorts of romantic poetry ....
enjoy the joy folks...luv life and read poetry....
anyways...I am searching for John Milton's Paradise lost and Paradise regained....any clues...where to find the book ?

and hey rims of ....escaping out of comments actually need a pack full of chocolates...with deep dark chocolate pastry "Dark Desire" at Barista.... :) to lighten your soul it seems...

Translating Tring Tring

This is the translated version of one of the fantastic blog post at Random Reflections.

When I read the post for the first time, I felt that post will have more impact, had it been written in hindi...the emotions and choice of words can make the difference. so here is the modest effort add a bit more feel around the post...

I will be using the roman script for the first draft...I will later on post it in devnagri script....

Anu: Hello !!
Ravi: Hello...Aap kaun ?
Anu: Mein, Anumita, tumhari Anu...lagta hai tum meri aawaz bhi bhool gaye...
(Ek lambi khamoshi...)

Ravi: Anu...Kya ye vakai tumhi ho....mera matlab kya vastav mein ...ufff...aakhir kyun call kiya tumne mujhe aath (8) saal baad...Hey bhagwan...kya sachmuch....tum ho....
Anu (ek thandi aah leker): Phir Kaise ho...?

Ravi: Uff...kahin ye sapna to nahin....kitni baar mehsoos kiya hai maine tumhe apne aas paas...per her baar....
(kuch lambi aahein.aur khamoshi key baad...)

Anu: Ravi tum bilkul nahin badle....tum tab bhi aise they...aur aaj bhi....tumhe kabhie saamne key sach per bharosa he nahin hua....kher...kaise hain sab log ghar per.

Ravi: Sab theek hain...lekin...per...tum...haan tum sahi ho...Mein abhi bhi waisa he hoon...lagta hai samay ki dhaara mein mein ruk sa gaya hoon....itney saare saal ...mein her roz yahi sochta shayad tum mujhe call karogi...shayad jaan-lena chahogi ki mein kya kar raha hoon ....kahin mera kuch ho paya ya nahin...mein sochta jab tum phone karogi to mein ye mein woh kahooga....her roz ...subeh aur shaam bus mein dohrataa rehta tha....her choti sey choti baat ko tum ....per tumhara aana he aaya....
aur aaj tum achanak phone per keh rahi mein bilkul nahin badla..uff....pata nahin Anu ...mein kya kahoon....mujhe khud nahin maaloom ki mujhme kya badal gaya hai...mein kahin se toot gaya hoon ya kahin jud gaya hoon....kya batayoon mein tumhey...mujhe to ye bhi nahin maalom i tum kitni der mujhe sunogi...tum-hi batayo...kya kya batayon mein tumhe...woh jo ho gaya hoon...ya woh jo mein nahin raha ....ya phir woh jo bilkul nahin badla...batayo Anu...kya tumhe aaj ferk padta hai...kya tum...bolo Anu...kuch to kaho...

Anu ney kuch nahin kaha...Ravi ko samajh he nahin aaya ki woh kuch kehna chahti bhi thi...ya sirf uski sun lena chahti thi....

Baaki Kal ...'coz raat key bazz gaye hain baarah and hum hai kuch aur bhi likhenge kal dubara...for the curious...please read the original at Random Reflection...I will continue the translation tomorrow...and yes... :) ..stay tuned for hirdu's version..'coz there is no tail without the twist in the tail ... ;)

I'm gonna live till I die I'm gonna laugh stead of cry

Well, I heard it for the first time day before yesterday...Sony Pix was playing movie named "Click"...about the movie later and thoughts too....Amazing it folk...I am gonna rate it my best movie view after "Anand"

At present here are lyrics...of the song...and the youtube link to listen ;) ...enjoy the's fantastic... this is how next decade is gonna begin on May 12th :) .... 

I'm gonna live till I die
I'm gonna laugh stead of cry
I'm gonna take the town turn it upside down
I'm gonna live, live, live until I die

They're gonna say what a guy
I'm gonna play for the sky
Ain't gonna miss a thing,gonna have my fling
I'm gonna live live live until I die

Those blues I lay low, I'll make them stay low
They'll never trail over my head
I'll be a devil till I'm an angel
But until then Hallelujah
Gonna dance gonna fly
I'll take my chance riding high
Before my numbers up I'm gonna fill my cup
I'm gonna live, live, live until I die

Those blues I lay low,I'll make them stay low
They'll never trail over my head
I'll be a devil till I'm an angel
But until then Hallelujah
Gonna dance gonna fly
I'll take my chance riding high
Before my numbers up I'm gonna fill my cup
I'm gonna live, live, live, live until I die

Two Weeks Notice

Two Weeks Notice - Sounds familiar right :) Wonderful movie it was...wasn't it? Well, before you start thinking about the movie..lemme set the pace of the post...this "Two weeks Notice" is not used in romantic note as that of movie [there is no Sandra bullock or Hugh Grant in my life :( ] Anyhow..sorrows apart ;)...It's used in strictly literary meaning here...Yes...many of you have guessed it right..."Two Weeks Notice" has begun...

I wrote earlier about April 19, 2010 - as the date to take the next planned...the step is taken.

I do not know how and why...but it seems the stars above are planning a greater churn here and there...I received long lost money yesterday ;)..."Sashi Tharoor" resigns, & after a long time the polarity of my thoughts is changing towards positivity of huge magnitude...something which is surprising me the most...

It seems that there is something already written somewhere...and all these happenings are actually falling in place to solve a larger puzzle...

Anyhow...let's leave future to unravel itself at its own pace...and enjoy the joy of being Alive :)

Dilbert :) Kaash....

I wish :) and I know many of you also wished...

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail

This is what happens...and why the heck I am always at receiving end... :(

They judge me, before they even know me - Shrek

It happens all the time, and this time again it has happening...I can't help it...I have started believing that I share the same fate as that of "Shrek" in the movie...

Now since I can't help it...I have started enjoying it :)

"anyways...before you get any ideas...I do not look like Shrek..."

प्रसव वेदना

प्रसव वेदना
आखिर क्या होती है ये प्रसव वेदना? प्रसव वेदना वो दर्द है जो हर माँ को होता है, जब वो जन्म देती है. जब इस संसार में आगमन होने वाला होता है एक शिशु का.
कैसी होती है प्रसव वेदना ? क्या ये कभी कोई पुरुष महसूस कर सकता है?

जब पहली बार ये सवाल उठा था, तो मेरे पास कोई जवाब नहीं था...या फिर शायद मैं भी ये मान लेने को राज़ी था कि नहीं, एक पुरुष कभी ये महसूस नहीं कर पायेगा, क्यूंकि वो तो जन्म ही नहीं देता...

पर आज शायद ये कुछ ऐसी ही वेदना मैं स्वयं महसूस कर रहा हूँ... नहीं, मैं किसी शिशु को जनम नहीं देने वाला हूँ....मैं तो अपनी जीवन यात्रा के एक पड़ाव पर खड़ा हूँ...मैं तो यहाँ जन्म देने वाला हूँ अपने अगले दशक कि यात्रा को...मेरे सम्मुख कुछ यक्ष प्रश्न हैं...जिनके उत्तर बिना प्रसव के जन्म नहीं लेंगे...

प्रसव हमेशा किसी शिशु का हे नहीं होता, प्रसव होता है विचार धारा का, और जब भी ऐसा होता है, प्रसव वेदना से हर वो व्यक्ति पीड़ित होता है, जो उस विचार धारा के आगमन कि प्रतीक्षा में होता है.

The next steps for next decade

I am still pondering over the next steps for next decade...Just like the start of last decade..."No Plan is a Good Plan" is the current feel.

Today, at last I am settled for the date of next step.... the date is April 19, 2010 and next step is starting cleaning the toxic waste gathered in last 10 years...

More to be written on the date itself and more thoughts to arrive and written in here, to be forever...

The first Decade

This year will mark completion my first 10 years after college...Yes, 10 long years in software industry...

How do I characterize these 10 years, did I gained or did I lost...the more I am think on these...more confusing it becomes...

After 10 long years...I find myself, on similar cross-road, where I was standing, when I was about be start fresh from college...

I remember, I was about to leave college and there was no job at hand...I decided to prepare for CAT without any safety net :) full of zeal and second thoughts, on what will others think....In last 10 years...something has gone wrong somewhere it seems...somewhere I have started considering...what will others think..This is not what I wanted ...I want to be free...I want to be free of this burden of 10 years of experience ...I want to start afresh...

I still remember the fragrance of being fresh ....

Yes...this is what I am looking for...This is what will make me to live for many more decades...the thought of being fresh...

So folks ...
Here is new Hirdu...
Fresh... Juvenile...& interested....
Enjoy the Joy

As I begin to a newer start...a newer decade...I promise...nothing will be same to what has happened in last 10 years...It will be altogether fresh new face...fresh new path...fresh new goals and fresh new achievements.

जैसे हीरे को हीरा काटता है
जैसे लोहे को लोहा काटता है
जैसे ज़हर को ज़हर काटता है
वैसे ही कुत्ते को कुत्ता काटता है

So dear if you have to fight a dog, deploy another dog... :)

Life mein "Tension lene ka nahin Dene Ka"

Learning from 1 week of introspection - "Life mein Tension lene ka nahin Dene Ka"...

This is what is real...The only thing one gets out of tension is health disorder...some way or the other the stress shows up in one's Medical Reports...

So doston
Agar Jeena hai Long, to phir Tension lena hai Wrong
Kya karoge lad ker her fight, agar Jeena ho jaye tight...

isliye aish sey jiyo and yaad rakho...tension lene ka nahin ...dene ka...

Interesting ...Smiles Around

It happened few moments back...

I was talking to a colleague of mine, who is otherwise calm in most scenarios (I use to come !!!) asking him about if there are open positions in NCR zone...
He started with a sense of pride, "Well, I believe not to switch every now and then...look at me, I am at MGR level already...youngest in here"
I said, "Cool...What age are you?"
He smiled & said, "Just 33"
I said, "Oops...I have just crossed 30 ;) and I am also..."
I didn't had to complete the sentence, and everybody around me was smiling already...

so you to bring smiles around...

Team Song

This is the latest team Song

मैंने पूछा Team से कि देखा है कहीं
अपनी Boss सा कमीन

Team ने कहा, Manageri कि कसम
नहीं, नहीं, नहीं

Everybody sings it 3 times a day in new year... :)
