Happiness?

Ok people lets deal with this important n very confusing topic- HAPPINESS. Well what is happiness exactly? The dictionary says Happiness is joy, pleasure, good-fortune. But is it only limited to these 3 things?
Why do so many of us feel unhappy even when we have all the worldly pleasures, all the success that we ever wanted in our lives and the good-fortune to lead a life that would be the envy of others? What is that feeling which makes us go "Uggghhh!!!" time and again..
Is happiness only about worldly pleasures? Agreed that the worldly pleasures are a really important component of being happy. But these pleasures give only momentary happiness and nothing else. They do make our lives easier though. Does success in life make one happy?? Well maybe. But why do we still feel unsatisfied deep down even after achieving our goals? Is it because now there is nothing else left to achieve? Or is it that we found happiness in the struggle we had to go through to achieve that goal? So does struggling in life make us feel happy? However we crib about having to go through all the suffering when we are struggling... So we come back to my original question- what really makes us happy? Rather what makes us feel satisfied?

Changing times...

Hello ppl..i know its been quite a long time since i posted nethin..And frankly so much had changed in my life since then..Well isnt this wut life is about? Change.. So d name of my Blog also refers to this ongoing change called Life..
Sometimes v really dont want things to change..But i do believe that there is One above us who is far more superior and who controls us like puppets. How many times have we felt as if things are going just great and nothing could be better when immediately the next moment or the next day some incident totally changes your mood and maybe the course of your life.And there are times at which we feel why-why do I have to go through all this? Why me? and why now? But I firmly believe that these changes are temporary. When God closes one door He always opens another. And one should never forget that. Losing hope in times of despair is one of the biggest mistakes a person can make. Hope in one's own self and more over in the One far superior above. It gives a sense of security however abstract the thought of a superior being can be. And even if one dosent have faith in God the least one can do is never give up.
" Don't quit when the tide is the lowest
For its just about to turn
Don't quit over doubts and questions
For there is something you may learn
Don't quit when the hill is the steepest
For your goal is almost nigh
Don't quit for your not a failure
Until you fail to try "

Life's bound to catch you when you are the least prepared. Thats just how it goes. The key is to keep your cool and never give up .

Being a part of anti-reservation protest

Friday 13th May 2006- Medical students in Delhi take out a rally protesting against HRD Minister Arjun Singh’s proposal to increase OBC quotas by 27%. They are holding a peaceful march when they are suddenly lathi-charged by the police without prior intimation or any provocation on part of the students. 250 students are arrested and several are injured.

Saturday 14th May 2006- Medical students in Mumbai decide to go on a hunger strike for 24 hours from 13th May 7 pm after receiving news of the lathi-charge against their colleagues in Delhi. They also plan to have a rally on the 14th. The rally begins around 7 am on 14th. It is progressing peacefully when the police lathi-charge them-again without prior intimation or any provocation on part of the students. The stone-hearted police do not spare even the female students and the handicapped students who were a part of the protest.

How could we sit in Pune not doing anything after watching the horrifying scenes of Delhi n Mumbai? We had to do something-this issue was getting out of control.

Sunday 15th May 2006-

Morning: Medical students in Pune decide to have a rally later in the evening. They have applied for police permission on Saturday itself but haven’t yet got it. If they do not get police permission and still decide to have the rally later that evening they risk the chance of being lathi-charged by the police.The atmosphere is full of tension as the students had made up their mind of having the rally with or without police permission come what may. Finally around noon the news trickles in that we have received police permission for the rally.Everyone heaves a sigh of relief. Now the girls can freely join us without being worried of occurrence of any untoward incident.

4:45 pm below Z-bridge: the rally is expected to start any minute. Nearly 500 people have gathered. They represent not only Medical students but also engineering friends who have come to support us. One of the organizing interns speaks to everyone regarding the route of the rally, the slogans we must raise and the decorum we must maintain. Several colleges have come to Pune just for the rally- MIMER Talegaon, KIMS Karad, Rangoonwala dental college Pune, D.Y. Patil college Pimpri and also SIT, Pune. The Indian Medical Association secretary(pune chapter) assures his support to us. The air is full of enthusiasm as we begin the rally with cries of “Arjun Singh hai hai!! We proceed toward Alka talkies and our representatives distribute pamphlets regarding the issue to the common people on the streets. We yell “50% reservation, 100% politics.” And “Voice of new generation, no reservation, no reservation.” We proceed towards Fergusson college road around 6 pm when its brimming with people. We urge them to join us and say in Marathi “Bagtay kai? Shamil wha”(What are u looking at? Join us!!) and to our surprise quite a few people join us. The organizers of the rally-i.e the students of B.J. Medical college Pune had done a fabulous job and had even thought of arranging water for the protesters realizing that they would get tired. We finally turned on to J.M road which was also packed to capacity on the Sunday and had nearly covered 4 kms now but our enthusiasm hadn’t waned a bit. Guys and girls alike raised slogans remanding our rights. Finally after nearly three hours our rally ended at 8.30 pm. Everyone was tired but we knew we had to do it so that we can do our bit to save our future.

Finally I would like to say that its high time the youth of India wakes up and whole-heartedly joins the brave medical students in Delhi and Mumbai who are not only fighting for their rights but also the rights of you and me. If you are one of those who thinks “What can I do? I’m just single person?”- I would like to say that you have support all around you-you are not alone-you have to fight for your rights. If we don’t fight for our rights then who will?

Frustration


Life is so sad sometimes!! Maybe i'm feeling that coz i'm goin back 2 Karad tday-jus 4 d sake of sme dumb ENT clinics. Well d entire week i was here, i really felt that things hav changed so drastically in Pune. My friends lives r so so very different now. One of my close friends jus came frm bangalore 4 jus a week after a long year n still some of our friends dint come n meet us. It really ticked me off. Well I feel that this was bound to happen. I was d one whos left Pune 4 education. N to top it all i'm doing something which only Kartik(d one frm Bangalore) is doin. All of my friends here r doin Engineering n so our steams r also so drastically different. Next yr these guys will becom graduates n i will still b studyin-that is frustrating-de r giving GRE dis yr so by d end of 2007 i guess all of dem will fly off n i will still b slogging it out in MBBS. But i shud not crib-it was MY own decision 2 do medicine-i wasnt forced 2 do it. So i should not complain, i guess- but i just cant help it!!! To top it all Karad sure isn't that exciting. Its all that Pune isn't. The most irritating part is d narrow-minded attitude of d people der. its just a matter of 2 more years. I sure hope i can get intership here in Pune. I must study 4 that-n even that isn't working 4 me now-i just cant seem 2 sit down n study. but i must-i have no option. So all d best Raunak .

Now Dimple n Irani r having an affair behind Mr. Sethna's back.Now Dimple plots 2 kill her father-in-law n Simone Singh so that she n Irani can have d ntire property n she can ditch mr.Sethna n they can get married. But fate has other plans n to get to d climax- Saif n Simone r siblings n de hav plotted d ntire thing-de implicate dimple in d murders of her father-in-law when she has done nothin.
