In school, we had a topic on letter writing. I always chose formal letters. They were short, scoring. I don’t think I have ever written an informal letter unless compelled to. The prospect of writing to a friend or family and getting it corrected marked by a third person didn’t find any favour in me. These are supposed to be personal, with emotive warmth, soothing. I did not want to get marks by laying bare my personal thoughts to some other person. Continue reading I’ve Got Mail!

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I have not been posting for a while and have decided to take a hiatus from blogging for the present owing the allegiance to disillusionment, lack of inspiration and myriad other reasons. I will come back when I have sorted out things a bit, which may take some time.

Au revoir. January, 2014.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
It’s been more than a month since I realized that I haven’t posted anything worthwhile on my blog for some time. The reality is Standard XI along with coaching classes @ Prerna and managing school is really a hectic task, which I think the general public of this age bracket will agree.

“Recollecting memories of school days is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose and the things which made you what you are today.”
A week or so may have passed since I stepped into the campus of a new school for my +1 and +2 years. A new school, a new experience, a new environment and completely new set of teachers who do not know me. It’s a whole new world for me. Just a few hours into this new setting and I struck down with a bout of nostalgia. . . . Continue reading Waves of Nostalgia
Well I have been learning Python for quite a few time now with help from Learn Python the Hard Way Book. About 2 weeks have passed since I started this new activity. After ICSE’13 life is a big bore. So I tried to do something constructive. After seeing Aviral Dasgupta, Sai Vineet and Anurag Sharma coding in Python I too was intrigued to try my hand in it. Right now I have basically done some really small programs as I am currently in a learning mode. But I hope that soon I will be able to turn the knob to Experienced Mode. Actually I was earlier a Java programmer (I am still now) but I found it to be really long especially the Input stream, creating object and then converting the String to Integer or any other data type. Further Python is very easy to learn and much more flexible than Java. I am completed wooed by Python
Here I have created a relatively small and childish program dealing with files and directories. The code is also hosted at GitHub.
Here’s the link to the program. bit.ly/YY620c
27th January, 2013 – Oh! So my ICSE Examination will begin from next month. Am I happy about it? Am I nervous? Umm. . . The answer to the first is partly yes and partly no while of the second one is definitely a big YES. Oh god my first public examination and I thought that I will be pretty much screwed in it. So I get down to studying. I studied like never before. A minimum of 8 to 9 hours a day. Making notes which I never did in my life. And all through this I just kept hoping that my hard work pays off.
