Music!!

Sometimes, in my spare time I like to search good music. In these days you really need to search them and in that matter I've come across some of the beautiful Hindi songs which I guess are worth sharing!!

A grandfather wrote a letter to his newborn grandchild.

Here is the video where he gives invaluable advice to the newborn or you can simply read the text below also. Those who understand Hindi will get the message more clear.





Dear munna,
welcome to this world
this is a beautiful, lovely and amazing place
and you have been sent here to make it 
more beautiful and more amazing
who has sent us? No body has been able to know that till date
and probably its not even important
so please don't waste your time on such questions...
we all have a limited time here
and however we might have, it always seems less
there is so much to see, so much to know and so much experience
that you don't have any time to waste.
possibilities are endless...
you can become anything, you can do anything
you can change this world, try something new, everyday
try to learn and understand something new
remember it's always better to regret something after
doing it rather than regretting without doing it
because by doing something, even if you don't gain anything
you will gain experience, which is very valuable 
experience everything, but don't get addicted
experience will help you differentiating right from wrong,
it will prevent you from committing mistakes 
but don't be afraid of committing mistakes
because only those who do something, make mistakes
take responsibility for your mistakes
and try to rectify them, forgive other people's mistake
and give them a chance to rectify it
No one likes to commit mistakes
No one misbehaves on purpose
you don't know what's going on in anyone's life 
so treat everyone the way you treat yourself
be lenient to others as you are to yourself,
respect everyone, trust everyone 
and most importantly, love everyone
love is very spare in this world and everyone needs it
you will need it too, don't hesitate to ask for it, don't hesitate to show it
life is too short to be shy
dance like there is no tomorrow, sing with all you heart,
eat as much as you can,laugh loudly and always cry like a baby
just like you were crying now.. on phone
only your body should grow old, not your heart
the day you loose your innocence, you loose your life
think about the future, but do not worry about it
think about past, but don't get lost in it
there will be good days and bad
don't boast too much when the days are good, 
don't loose hope when the days are bad
don't give yourself all the credit for your success
and never blame others for your failures
just keep moving forward, keep spreading happiness
and always remember, you have been sent here just for one reason-
to make this world, more beautiful and more amazing

lots of love... your Grandfather

Dreams

Beneath the starry sky,
behind the closed eyes.
Dreams is what we see,
as we fall asleep.
In the silence of the night,
our mind flies like a kite.
We enter in a realm so peculiar,
anything can just appear.
Even when we asleep,
our dreams don't sleep.
In dreams we own the world it seems
so why can't we just live in dreams.

Ain't that just the saddest thing. When an unfortunate event from the past stuck inside your head like its never going to be erased and yet you always wish to forget it so badly.....

Change

Lately I have been thinking about “Change” as it’s appearing that a lot of things around me is changing. So Is change good or it’s highly unfortunate that it’s happening. The question is divine.
But here’s the thing “Change Is Inevitable”, it has to happen. What most people fail to realize, typically until it’s very late in the game, is that change happens to us whether we like it or not, remember its Inevitable.
Change is not that bad actually for examples I made a short list of the things that changes over time and we really need these changes :

1. Whether
2. 
Fashion
3. A
n era 
4. 
Perspective
5. 
Habits

1. Whether
What if whether doesn't change it remains constant. Imagine it’s raining throughout the year, God what a dreadful idea or consider you’re perspiring for like full 365 days a year,and now people start greetings each other like Hey Sweaty What’s up. So its good that whether changes.

2. Fashion
Suppose we still wear those Bell-bottoms from 70’s that become wider from the knees downward. Actually I Kinda love that style but we can’t wear them right!

3. An era
Come on, you don’t want to live in the eras like World War, or when Britain ruling the world. We’re glad that that time has gone now, it has changed.


4. Perspective
As we grow older we mature. As we mature our perspective on different things changes .Its actually quite important that you should have the right perspective on certain things.

5. Habits 

habits can be changed, obviously. If I were to provide an example, simplest example would be smoking habits. There are a lot of people who quit smoking on a daily basis. Sometimes changing habits is difficult, but it is possible. Humans are very adaptive. They acquire several habits over time. But since they had  acquired it, it’s possible for them to leave them as well.


But what happens when People change. Do they really change?

    Here’s a Calvin and Hobbes strip


So people change whether they like it or not. And people change -- really change -- when they perceive an advantage will accrue if they do change. They just have to understand what it is and -- poof! -- with a paradigm shift, they're almost there. When they take action in furtherance of that paradigm shift, they reinforce it and continue on the new path.
But what concerns us when people around us begins to change. Like Friends, we never wants our friends to get changed, because you know it’s sad when people you know becomes the people you knew. You loved the person so you became friends, but now suddenly they changed, they are not same person as they used to, they are not the same person who you have become friend with. So you don’t like this change but when you saw that same person is happy with the change, you need to understand that things are not always how you wanted it to be.You need to accept that Change is always good may be not for you but for the one who has changed.


Sometimes you love change sometimes you don’t  but ‘
change’ is an integral part of our life and that’s how life works.



If you’re not convinced that change can be good, remember that it’s inevitable anyway. You may not like change, but it’ll be a lot easier on you if you just let things take their course.

Intellectual laziness

I have been thinking about this recently. Why are exams important? Why do they exist? And if they’re so important, why are they universally hated? These are questions we’ve all asked at some point of time, and maybe over extended periods. Let’s consider the exams that commonly take place in the school/college setup here. Here are a few points in favor, that quickly come to mind

1. Exams are important because they test your ability to recall content, your knowledge of    the 
concerned area and your ability to apply that knowledge without external help.             
2. They test problem solving skills, and then your ability to communicate the solution to the  examiner.
3. Ability to work under pressure.
4. In a meritocracy, is there really another way to judge who deserves what?
5. Without exams, students might lose all the motivation to work.

Probably more. And of course, the above points hold only when the conditions are ideal (wrt academic integrity etc.). Then people cite reasons why exams aren’t what they’re made out to be:


1. Getting through today’s world does not need the ability to recall content. Instead, what’s needed to do well is analytical ability and grasping power.

2. Unnecessary pressure on students. People tend to make a big deal out of exam scores. Some people, despite their intelligence, might be bad exam takers.
3. Exams are like a destination. People prepare for them, and forget about the subject. The purpose is defeated.
4. Exams are sources or mental pressure, and might cause people to lose self-esteem.

All the points above are really open for debate, and I don’t want to get into that. But the one point that I do want to write about is the following. First, please consider this question below.


Ques:- Would you still study, if exams were optional, or scores didn't matter?

A. Yes
B. No
C. Can't say


Now, I’m presuming that most people will respond with a flat No. No surprises there, because that’s my response too. And this got me thinking. It is clear that exams are what make us put in efforts in the first place. By the way, I love math, and electronics, so why should I really need exams? And this is not only my story, I guess many people are affected by this. I’m a senior undergraduate now, and as far as my future career choices are concerned, grades don’t matter in the fourth year. And in many a course that I like, I suddenly find it difficult to gather that motivation. Study at all, not even just for the exam. There are other activities that take up time, but what about the intellectual stimulation that I also want?


Ideally, we’re supposed to see exams as intellectual challenges (ignore those stupid tests which don’t need you to think on your own). Are we really doing that? I’m sure we’re not. This state of mind is what I’d like to label as “intellectual laziness”. It’s not about exams, about work, or about anything else, as much as it is about your own mind. It’s an inertia, that prevents your mind from taking up a new challenge that doesn’t guarantee results. For instance, if I posed a challenging problem right away, how many of you would be willing to consciously think about it in the near future? Sadly, the answer again would be that very few of us would even bother to read it. I’m on lots of puzzle groups, and see that puzzles are posted, but solutions don’t come up for quite some time. Barring a few, people don’t usually take interest.


This kind of intellectual inertia scares me. For I know that to make a notable difference to the world, we have to be willing to solve problems all the time. I don’t know whether the result-oriented approach is right or not, but one side-effect of it is definitely this sad state of mind. I wonder it can be tackled.

Dear Void

A void as I know
resides inside of me

A void as I know
never wants to be replete.

A void as I know

makes my dream empty
A void as I know
leaves me in pity

A void as I know

makes me feel,
if I'm not hurting I'm not real


A void as I know

makes my soul blue
Oh Dear Void all I have is you...

Found somewhere in the Internet....

Read slow..
     1. Unexpected Hanging Paradox

A  judged tells a condemned prisoner that he will be hanged at noon on one weekday in the following week but that the execution will be a surprise to the prisoner. He will not know the day of the hanging until the executioner knocks on his cell door at noon that day.
Having reflected on his sentence, the prisoner draws the conclusion that he will escape from the hanging. His reasoning is in several parts. He begins by concluding that the "surprise hanging" can't be on Friday, as if he hasn't been hanged by Thursday, there is only one day left - and so it won't be a surprise if he's hanged on Friday. Since the judge's sentence stipulated that the hanging would be a surprise to him, he concludes it cannot occur on Friday.
He then reasons that the surprise hanging cannot be on Thursday either, because Friday has already been eliminated and if he hasn't been hanged by Wednesday night, the hanging must occur on Thursday, making a Thursday hanging not a surprise either. By similar reasoning he concludes that the hanging can also not occur on Wednesday, Tuesday or Monday. Joyfully he retires to his cell confident that the hanging will not occur at all.
The next week, the executioner knocks on the prisoner's door at noon on Wednesday — which, despite all the above, was an utter surprise to him. Everything the judge said came true.


     

     2. Omnipotence Paradox  

Could an omnipotent being [GOD] create a stone so heavy that even he could not lift it?


If a being can perform any action, then it should be able to create a task which this being is unable to perform; hence, this being cannot perform all actions. Yet, on the other hand, if this being cannot create a task that it is unable to perform, then there exists something it cannot do
