Trapped

And the flush isn’t working. My after poop peace is also taken. That’s just awesome. Interestingly weird situation. While I am proud of my excretory system to have worked pretty well and left a solid mark of my presence in this tiny washroom of this small cafe, there is no water to cover it up. So I am thinking whether I should leave the cafe as soon as possible, after coming out of the washroom and hope no one follows for a while, or inform the cafe staff about the fact that the water isn’t coming and the washroom is clogged. Such a trap it is man…

Introspection & Retrospection

I have taken a pledge to read books this year. I am happy that I just completed the first one. It was a special book since it  was from one of the most inspiring athletes, whom I have looked up to and whom I have also related to, in my tennis playing days: Rafael Nadal. I have written about the book here.

This post is more about what has been my key learning in the last 6 months, the first six months of my post-college professional working life, which this book (quite incidentally well timed) also very well aligns and resonates with. I am glad the validation (although there wasn’t any need for), if it had to come, came in through the tennis story of one of the best player ever. Continue reading

Aspire to Work For Sport

I am going to present a story that holds very dear to me through this post.

I just graduated college (It’s a strange and different feeling, but I won’t go there). I officially have a degree now (not literally because there’s still some time in my convocation), but the effort and struggle is over. However I realize that the hard part has just begun. I remember a senior addressing our graduating batch on the recently organised “high tea” during the last days of college. He made us all aware about a very true fact that the path we traveled till now was a very well defined path and something that almost everyone follows. School and then college. But as soon as we step out from college, we get to own each and every decision and choice we make to develop and polish ourselves at the personal as well as professional level. We gotta explore and follow our true passions. And that’s not very easy, and at times it’s so damn hard.   Continue reading

The One Trip Every 21 Year Old Must Get

* 10 Days | All Alone | 104 hrs in train | Beautiful Place | Amazing People | Different Work | Lots of Learning | Perspective | I Explored | I lived *

So, I recently got a chance to visit Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala for a field trip as a part of my summer research internship project related to public-police relationship with Rakshak Foundation. I had gone there precisely to study the applied models of community policing (The Janamaithri Suraksha Program and the Student Cadet Program).
