The dark knight rises.

Now by that I don’t mean that you will be getting a superhero like batman as your assistant, saving your from all types of life problem including handling your relationship ( well I guess you will never prefer Batman to handle your relationships ๐Ÿ˜› ). I am talking about those restless warriors who works ( or play i don’t know ) endlessly when every one are in deep state of dream. I call them them nightly animals.

Now these type of warriors can be easily spotted in hostel,in offices, in big secret laboratories ( but I will be mostly talking about hostel and college scenario ย since I haven’t faced the other two environments yet ). They prefer to hangout and do all other kind of stuff at the day light and seam as harmless student who can just score average mark. But at the exam time they turn out to be one of the greatest achievers. That thing must put someone in wonder as to when did they get the time to study so much and the answer lies in their night vision,sharp smelling,deadly nail, like abilities that they activate at the mid -night.

By burning mid-night oil doesn’t necessarily means that you will be achieving success. I have many examples of early birds who religiously follow their morning ritual and have faith in the saying that ”ย Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise” .ย Even if we naturally prefer to do our heavy tasks at day time ( or I should say most of us prefer to do it at daytime ) nothing stops these dark knights to carry out their job at night. ( don’t you think knight and night are made similar to sound because of their function ๐Ÿ˜› …bad joke anyway).For these people believe that the silence of night is very soothing and are in sync with the vibes of their concerned job.

There are many students in my hostel who are true follower of these nightly animal spirits ( yaah spirits or else where do you think they get inspiration from ?) and it’s due to these people that we ( I means mostly of my type ๐Ÿ˜› ) get misguided ” Kya padhai,padhai,padhai… inn logo ko dekho bina padhe hi pass ho jaate hain mai bhi vese kar lunga…” just to realize at the end all I did was wasting my time in trifle stuffs while all they did was working hard everyday oops I mean every-night.

But in the end … It doesn’t matter who prefers which type of working time or how do they achieve the success because all that matters at the end of the day are RESULTS.

Farewell to our sensei !!

Don’t be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.

Richard Bach

This messeage is for our beloved Sensei Chidananda Puri :-
“We are really going to miss your presence. It’s very hard for us to even imagine a class without you. But anyway we hope that time will come when our paths will cross each other’s road ( not just once but many times ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). ย Till then we will all be cherishing the time that we got to spend with you and will always keep in our mind everything that you have taught us.”

Here is a collage of the farewell

Our beloved sensei !!
Our beloved sensei !

But the day was not over yet for the 1st year students as we had the super feat of inflitriting our hostel at around mid-night.While rest of us easily climbed up the pipe and got into the hostel. Here is how our golu molu Jayesh did his job ( failed miserably too ๐Ÿ˜€ ย lol )…

A miserable infiltration indeed !!
A miserable infiltration indeed !!

But anyway somehow we managed to get a ladder after one of our intelligent guy Bibhu magically got the idea that we can use the ladder lying around his room ( pun obviously intended). Though I am not sure what will happen if the warden get a hand on this article right now but guess what … I don’t either care about it now.

As always ” Bhagwaan sabka bhala kare par shuruaat mujhse kare ๐Ÿ™‚ “.

Am i a NERD ?

Crazy parties, social gathering, disco nights, friends hangout are the trends that we young generation are fond of. ” Hey, wassup ? Come and hangout man !!” , ” Yo buddy, enjoy the party” , ” Chal naa yaar masti majak hi to karna hai, kuch dhamal karte hai !! ” , ” life is too small, so enjoy yaar !! ” are some of the most common line that i hear in a gathering…..gathering which i would love to join,to hangout but somehow i make sure to make my way out of all these. Other than intro type chat I just fail to come up with something creative or rather witty lines to hangout with other guy or girl just other than academic stuffs. Am I a nerd ?

My love to not love talking is since my schooling years. Thanks to my early schooling at Allahabad, teachers and my pals that i learnt to speak less … so less that it pricked like a thorn in my mind. No personal issues but sometimes i feel that my childhood has not been so wonderful due to my bullying friend circle. My teachers, yes they were good at teaching but the way they tried to discipline us is not I am very fond of. My childhood routines made sure that all I was left with were my books and computers which required just me to play which all in turn where effecting me at psychological level, completely engaged with books, disengaged with people.

As i continued to grow, I and my parents got transfered. Now I was at Paradeep, a place I never heard of and never dreamt of coming. But as they say “jo hota hai bhale ke liye hota hai !! “. I got the golden chance of meeting new lovely people and also got a platform to learn karate. But inspite of that, my childhood had left a footprint that was not so easily going away. I remember how I fumbled to talk with people. It was as if i thought everyone were hostile to me and won’t accept me. But thanks to my new schoolmate who provided me the suitable surrounding to have a normal secondary schooling. I was realizing the saying ” All study and no play makes Jack a lazy boy !!” kind of things.

My intermediate college had been a turning point For now I was forced ( forced for good) to Odia as a form of communication. At first my nerdy qualities kicked in which made it very difficult for me to communicate. But as i learnt Odia, I found that I was able to make new and better friend circle. I guess the language learning experience and the Bhai chara present in Cuttack were somewhat responsible to heal the wounds of my past and make me more open and taught me to better control my nerd side.

Now I am pursuing my engg and living in a hostel is a totally different experience. No matter how isolate lifestyle you like ,unless you are crazy, you will find yourself getting engaged in chatting with at least one person each day. But even with these I guess I was too early to decide that I ha transformed into a cool guy after completing my studies from Cuttack. Here I faced new problem, new challenges and of course… girls. All these things pulled me back to from where I all started. Now I am learning or i should say relearning the things on my own terms to come out of these clumsy situation. But will it be so easy for me to come out of nerdiness… or that it could be possible that I was never successful in neutralizing the nerd person within me and that I am stuck in a loop of thoughts ?

As always ” Bhagwaan sabka bhala kare, par shuruaat mujhse kare “

My karate’s enlightenment !!

My love for karate is since 2002 when I was 6 years old and the reason behind it was TV series hosted by Akhsya kumar in NatGeo. That was my starting point for getting into this martial art stuff. Though I formally joined a karate class at Paradeep in the year 2008 and I become a Senpai in the year 2012 under the guidance of my sensei Sanjay Saha,my interest to learn karate has always been like that of white belt student who are full of potential and want to absorb more and more knowledge from their Sensei.

Karate has always kept my interested since it always store something new to learn for all types of karate-ka. When I left my karate classes at class 10 in the year 2012 I thought it would be the last day of my karate classes. Indeed they were the last classes of karate at Paradeep. But it was fool of me to think so early about my retirement from it. When I came to Burla I was relieved to find that there was a karate class taken by sensei chidanada puri where I could continue from my black belt. So I immediately joined the classes and continued my karate safar.

Since I was the only guy with black belt in my dojo it was evident that I had superior skills and I faced no difficulty in sparring with my fellow guys. But as I said you earlier karate never fails to surprise me.

It’s about the local tournament. As most of the participants were of my dojo I assumed that it will be of not great difficulty to win these tournament. But as Neil Armstrong rightly said ” Well, I think we tried very hard not to be overconfident, because when you get overconfident, that’s when something snaps up and bites you. ” the quote iterated in my performance. For it was difficult for me to accept the fact that I lost the knockout stages of tournament to Tarini who had recently joined karate classes but nevertheless it was essential for me as karateka to learn and to understand that I should never underestimate my opponent’s abilities.
Thus I would like to conclude that what I learned is nothing very unique or amazing experience but I can assure that out was something which is essential for me as a person to lead my life.

As usual ” Bhagwaan sabka bhala kare, par shuruaat mujhse kare ”
Take care!

A day before exam.
