WHEN TIMES GO WRONG...........................

Today I shall tell you a lesson I learnt in a sports race.I participated in 400m race.From the beginning I started running fast,ahead of everybody;I ran and ran;but a mishap happened.When about 100 m were left my feet started trembling,heart started palpitating,I was out of breath and had no power to continue.I saw the runners overtaking me;I wanted to run ,the destination beckoned me,I wanted to reach there but was out of the necessary energy.I fumbled,my throat got choked,I was breathless.And ultimately I sat on the ground, much against my wish for I didn't have the might to reach the coveted zenith.the race was completed ,people won while I sat with my eyes closed trying to relax.

I came back from field, straightly jumped on the bed and started to anticipate.Why?why was it that I could not complete the race?Why did I quit when the destination was so near?Where was the encouragement inside me when I needed it?Or was it the lack of strategy that led to the sad state of affairs.How could that happen?But it had happened and ask my heart the anger & anguish it was in.That was the blunder I had done.When the ordeal arrived,I fell short I did fall short........................................

That day I learnt that Life is ,de facto a race and in the race of life ,if you want to win then you have to chalk out a strategy; for it will certainly lead you to your path of much awaited success and glory.Had I also made a strategy before the race;I could have got that gold medal;but I got the diamond like lesson of life.

TO ERR IS TO LEARN.................

In life we often commit mistakes sometimes deliberately and sometimes unknowingly.Mistakes are an integral part of the very human existence.Often it so happens is that perception of people also comes into play in deciding whether a deed is really a mistake or not.For eg. from the point of view of different people same things have dissimilar connotations and therefore meanings.

There are two types of people in this world:first who actually commit mistake which they want to and second those who are dubbed or mistook to have commited mistake when they are actually impeccable.I here want to write from the latter's point of view for ,I think, rather know ,that I belong to that category.

Let me quote an incident:few days before there was to be a maths class which only I knew. I informed few girls about it through messaging and the CR(monitor) too but since I didn't have mobile number of boys CR, I could not inform them. When we came to attend the class there were only girls, surprised that I was, I told the CR that she should have informed that to boys but then she said she didn't receive the message.That surprised me for the second time.Then she became irritated that I accused her of not doing what she ought to.And we had a petty argument over it ;she berated ,I listened.Though I didn't tell her that I had also called her but her phone was busy..............Now tell me who is mistaken in this issue?(do tell me the solution to this, if it clicks you)

Mistakes will continue to be as long as we be.

But have you ever wondered: what would be life if nobody commited mistakes? What would have happened if there were no misunderstandings?No faults, no sorrys?

Probably, we would be not that close to people with whom we are today and know them in a better way.The mistakes no matter commited knowingly or unknowingly reveal the true persona of the person,his/her traits and often erudition.

And friends, do you know the best part of commiting mistakes? LEARNING ......One comes to learn many things that prepare one for the life ahead and bit by bit we gain the vital experience of life.And in life nothing is as much important as learning, believe me, not even victory.

So,recall the last time you commited a mistake and learnt from it.De facto mistakes make us a better person, they should never be our bete-noires.So next time you commit a mistake just ask yourself "what did I learn?"

By the way I also commited a mistake.......knowingly.I wrote this during my class of CSS & JAVASCRIPT,what could I do, could not understand it.( was that a mistake?)But I learnt one thing-"do what pleases you provided it is justified".

Come on, accept it mistakes make us PRAGMATIC & MAVERICK(yes,it does).

I CAME ,I SAW ,AM LEARNING.....................


I remember vividly the day that was 28th July 2009 when I got admitted in the ABV_IIITM hostel.The entire hostel was empty for registration was to start from the next day ;but that punctual my father is we came a day earlier.In my batch there were only I and Priyanka that day.We talked she told me about herself,her family,her schooling and I reciprocated the same.Then we went into our respective rooms, twas at that point of time that I started feeling weak,lonely and thinking of living here away from home where we have lived for 18 consecutive years all the more made me feeble and the lacrymal glands became activated.I twisted and turned on my bed, my soul was crying but I was surprised. Surprised at the fact that Yesoda Bhargava was ............(see I do not even like writing that word) and that too incessantly.But there was no body to console.

Next whole day I was lurking ,for my eyes continued to be wet.Relief came when I then saw autos coming in front of the hostel;girls accompanied by their parents,baggage coming; the hostel became a bit better.And I was sitting at the entrance gate trying to feel better.I met Sakshi that day ,she was the first girl I met.Since I have the the knack of making acquaintance; I met that day whom today I know by the name Upma,Astha,Pallavi,Divyangana,Smriti,Shruti and many more.

Now it was time for father to leave,twas dusk. A heavy stone dawned upon my head,my throat choked;eyes got wet;heart........... I do not know what happened to it.I have never showed to my parents emotional side of mine;something for which they often dub me as "you are un-social"(Am I?) But that night was exception,I cried he saw and said"ham bhi aise roye the jab hamne apna ghar chhoda tha,agar moha nahi chhodenge to kaise chalega".These lines revolve around my mind even today "Renunciation is the panacea for all pains inflicted upon you in your life".

Its been five months to me here and I have learnt few things too that we must understand if we want to survive in this world.Earlier I feared going to my seniors when they called us for an "interaction" but then I realized that these bunch of girls are de facto good & understanding ; Abhilasha maam,Ishi maam,Kamya maam,Kalpana maam,Debolina maam,Akanksha maam,Neetha maam,Divya maam,Devashri maam,Arti maam,Vandana maam,Himani maam to name a few.

Yes now I am happy here, early morning I go for a walk with my very good friend Smita;though nowadays it is very foggy to go.I never knew God would send me here,now i learn here and wonder over the popular adage

"if you get what you want tis good,if you don't tis even better".

A NEW VENTURE.......

My name is Yesoda Bhargava.I am a first year student at IIITM,Gwalior.I am fond of writing ,writing about what i get to learn from life's SOJOURN ,from the people I meet,have met ,will meet, and murkyand not-so murky situations in life.
I like talking on philosophy and the relevance of life, I am fond of making friends
and Iam a great fool too.
FOOL because I readily believe people ,then fret , do not know on whom.
Ibelieve that this art would definitely make me learn something as I have
always aspired for.
on this first day of my blogging i remember a poem I recently wrote:
I AM, BUT A MOULD OF MUD,
I AM,BUT AN IMMORTAL SOUL,
I AM BUT AN ACCOUNTABLE-To-BE PERSON,
I AM BUT AN INDOMITABLE SPIRIT,
I AM BUT A PERSON
READY TO ACCEPT BICKERINGS OF LIFE,
READY TO SURPASS THE ODDS.
OH! ALMIGHTY ENDOW UPON ME THE CHALLENGES,
THE CIRCMSTANCES,SO THAT I LEARN
I APPLY AND SURGE AHEAD,
AHEAD IN TIME,AHEAD IN PLACE IN MY MIND,
AHEAD MAY I.
I CONQUER OVER MY FEARS,
I HARMONIZE WITH AMBIENCE,
I DO NOT RUN FOR SUCCESS,
MY AIM IS TO LEARN..........forever.
