Being there to somewhere.. Life Surprises(3)

Graduated in 2008, as a Bachelor in Business Administration, I felt like adding a first feather to my hat. Not that I felt to have understood the NASA science, but an achievement (small or superior) certainly bettered my 'happiness index'. Having a graduate degree as BBA from an average department of an ordinary university (my perception for the college) was never my thought about life.  I may have felt happy for a while, but inside my heart, I was quite sure that I am yet to make it big; there was still a lot to be done.  No wonder, an unexpected tag of being a gold medalist crystallized my smile further. I never thought that my career would be an exceptional fusion of north meeting south.
I recollect my mum's conditioning us for not condemning anything that has helped us in one way or other. Although I have miserably failed to learn this from her and have always finished with my preferred criticism for the things I dislike, even the people. Having said that, my 'not so exciting college' certainly bestowed me with the passion to write, not just to text, but to think extensively, may be to add expressions to it. Lettering about 35 full length sheets in almost 12 annual subjects, and then repeating it for 3 something years unquestionably added some out of the box elements and that was the period I started pouring flowery texts alias posts to my blog.(Post 1, Post on College, Silver Hundred, Dreamz,Hostel, TPP , HMT)

The three years comprising various ups and downs, pros and cons had been pivotal in my evolution. From being fatalistic in mind, I had starting looking towards the better side of the life. As they say, when the destiny has written an alteration for you, the entire fraternity blends into the change. 2008, 2009 and thereon, my brother started contributing his hand in the family and graciously he could bring about a variation in everything, ranging from the way we lived, to the balances in the bank. He could yield a termination to many of our recurring problems and therefore leading to a relatively peaceable mindset for us to explore world.

Success to me in the short term has been a gift. If my parents struggled their lives to bring me to the college, to get graduated, the elder sibling made no less an effort to have the things nurtured. And if the family established an ideal state in me, my invisible friend (Sorry, she continued to stay in the blanket) encouraged me to implement things in person. If the circumstances over the decade taught me to judge people, she helped me learn how to value people, she continued emphasizing "Ankitt(An extra in my name was her gift), If you continue judging people, you will never have time to love them, to value them, to cheer them, and to respect them".

Leaving aside her own expectations, making no efforts toward her development, she tried every possible thing for me. The conversations on the text were at their peak best and probably the invisibility of friendship was turning towards the visibility of a relationship (again her efforts,as I continued to play fool/even foul).
It might be a sequence of events that brought in a change, it could be her care, an affection that I looked to the beautiful side, but the eventful thing to me was my first mid night call that lasted till 5 in the morning. To my surprise, a guy who didn't even managed a sixty second call with her, who made all possible efforts to miss an eye contact, who(owing to his shyness) made no special efforts to speak to her continued speaking to her for six something hours.

Was her voice turning magical? Did something really changed in her? Did this really happen? Were some of the questions in my mind. Was i charmed to everything she got connected with?

Were some of the questions in my mind.

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks. 
The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr…

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have. 
I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat. 
I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing th…
