If god gives me another chance…

It’s a very odd point of time I am writing this. Being involved in so many human issues, it just popped up in my mind that what is that I would like to change if god gives me another chance and tells me to change any one thing I would like to in my life….

First of all, I would like to thank god for giving me so many conveniences that are not for sure provided to everybody so lavishly. I have a wonderful family with very sweet, understanding and loving parents, a caring elder brother and a newly joined but very nice and caring bhabhi…

I am not sure of what god holds for me in future but yes I never complain to him for what all he wrote in my life till date as well… he gave me lots of chances, ideas and people who will always be a part of my life be it individually or through their sweet memories for the rest of my life. Whom I would really blame for miss-happenings in my life will be me myself. It is me myself who is taking the various decisions and the consequences are also being handled by me, so how can I just sit in front of god and make all the blames to him. I believed in the very famous saying that “yes, whatever happens, happens for good”. But is it really true? Are the things happening on their own? Yes, god is somewhere involved in it but is he solely responsible?

I don’t know who will answer to these questions but yes, I would like to move forward to the answer of the question my topic asks… what I would do if god gives me another chance?

If I am given a chance, I would thank the god for the same, will ask him to take the chance away and give someone who hasn’t got a single chance to live his/her life the way I did… I know what you are thinking that these are just the big words I am using for writing purpose. But being a human I admit that I will also ask him something additional to this that will be in benefit of me. It will be his guidance and support, helping me in taking my decisions firmly, which I think I lack a lot, and also I would like to request him to either reverse my life a bit or to give me a chance of re-taking some decisions that I took wrong in my past… but for that also, I would consult him and only him…

And if by chance while reading this you understand my problem then please pray to god to do to same and listen to me. I am not writing this just for the sake but whatever I am writing is the truth coming directly from heart because I don’t think so that anyone will wake up at night at around 3:44am and write this all suddenly by switching on his/her laptop…

Yes it’s around 03:45am right now of 17/12/2009 that I am writing all this…

A Delhi Metro Voyage

Remember the last time you went by taking Delhi Metro?? Remember the last time you were standing on a metro station and leaning forward to see the metro approaching?? Remember the huge crowds at Rajeev Chowk and Kashmiri Gate metro stations, pushing you and making you board the train automatically??

Yes I want you to recall all those moments you spend daily or at least once in a week travelling by the Delhi Metro connecting the large number of stations and areas of Delhi.

Delhi metro was started on 24th December 2002 and since then it is serving the city with its full geared up efforts. There have been certain mis-happenings as well but then also becoming more and more conscious, Delhi Metro Management is functioning and daily catering to thousands of citizens.

When I hear the words, Delhi Metro, the first thing I recall is the badly jammed metro compartments, the minute to minute announcements of stations, the loud music played by some passengers, students sitting on the floors even after being prohibited, and the loud ring tones of the mobile phones of various passengers which keeps on ringing one after the other without a huge time gap…

The surroundings of a compartment of Delhi Metro are so worth describing that I can’t avoid myself to write on it. It was a morning peak hours time at around 11 am when all the working individuals take the metro for their office. Just as I boarded from Pitampura metro station with roughly 20 more passengers with me in the metro towards Dilshad Garden, I saw a very aged uncle standing near a pole and waiting for a chance to get a seat under the Senior citizen seats out of those been occupied by teenage boys. On the other side, there was lady standing in a corner and trying to manage somehow with 2 luggages and a small kid. But on the seats, there were young professionals in the age bracket of 19- 30 sitting blindly without noticed the suffering passengers who were most eligible for sitting. I was supposed to change the metro at Kashmeri Gate and take the underground one for Rajeev Chowk.As soon as Kashmeri Gate station arrived, people started pushing each other and as a result the small kid fell off between the station and metro entry. Then also, no-one cared to pick him up and were rushing like anything. I didn’t like the behaviour of these passengers, if these well educated young passengers cannot understand humanity, then how can we expect this from our elders and young kids.

I am travelling in the metro since I started preparing for my CAT exam and was supposed to change 3 metros for the same. And now if I look back, it’s been more than 5 years that I am a continuous traveller of Delhi Metro. I appreciate the efforts of the Delhi Government and the Delhi Metro Authorities for maintaining the metro so nicely that it still doesn’t appear to be 7 yrs old. I cannot take any strict action to make everyone understand the importance of the rules, regulations and etiquettes but I can only request each one of us to take care of such circumstances in our lives which will in turn help someone.

Hello everyone...

Today, i would like to share with all a new piece of my work, which is a bit time consuming and because of this fact i am able to complete one of its project in a day only. Its known as Parchment craft where carving sorts work is done on a special piece of paper with special tools and effects.
