Ambitous me ;)

When I was young there were a lot of things that i wanted to become...
like in the 7th-8th standard i wanted to become a journalist (don ask me why..) and i always had this image of myself wearing a long kurta and a shoulder bag, wearing spectacles and holding a notepad and a pen - thanks to the movies;)... in the 9th-10th standards i wanted to become a newsreader(i think this is one thing that all girls aspire to become)..gone were the dreams of a journalist but atleast i was connected to the media world ;)!! i actually wanted to become a newsreader 'coz i loved that bearded guy (i later found out his name was Prannoy Roy) and i wanted to read the news alongside him... :)...

i gave up on science(or rather science gave up on me) after my tenth standard and i waltzed into the world of accounts, commerce etc and then i wanted to become a CA(chartered accountant)... thanks to my dad who also was one...!!! and then i chose to do B.Com after my higher secondary. but my ambition to become a CA was still going strong... i enrolled in the CA foundation course and then promptly flunked the exams... reality struck and i realized that CA was not my cup of coffee :(... then i found that a group of girls in my college were busy preparing for CAT.. at that point of time i didn't even know what that meant... i soon found out all about it and MBA beckoned... it was by chance that i decided to do an MBA and even then i wasn't too sure... i was thinking about courses in event management, company secretaryship, public relations etc...

however with my abysmally low cat percentile i joined ASB for my MBA and here i am now about to finish... 2 years have almost flown by and its been a wonderful time...!!! MBA has given me so many things and i have learnt so many things from here that these will be the best years of my education..!! :)

but hey MBA is almost over and i have also gotten a job now... but there are still lots of things that i wanna do... and lots of things that i wanna learn... and now that i have also found the perfect person to do them all along with... life is gonna be a breeze ..!!! :)

What Life's all about...!!!!

This bit is from one of the books in the "Chicken Soup" series..!!! i liked it a lot and find it very meaningful..!! :-)

Life isn’t about keeping score. It isn’t about how many people call you or who you’ve dated, are dating or haven’t dated at all. It isn’t about whom you’ve kissed, what sport you play or which guy or gal likes you. It’s not about your shoes, or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school. Infact it’s not about grades, money, clothes or colleges that accept you or not. Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends or if you are alone and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are. Life just isn’t about that.

But life is about whom you love and who you hurt. It’s about how you feel about yourself. It’s about trust, happiness and compassion. It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance and building confidence. It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s about seeing people for who they are and not for what they have. Most of all it’s about choosing to use your life to touch some else’s in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life is all about.

Grahanam - A review!

It has been quite some time since I penned something on this blog, and even longer, since I wrote a movie review. But there is no good time ...
