She is waiting eagerly- waiting for her son to return. The boy will be backing home after so many years- she was imagining how the lad will look like in his full youth.
Glory of youth sometimes tends to erase the line of differentiation between possible and impossible. And impossible does happened on that eventful day- her workaholic boss himself told him to take days off.
Perhaps he has guessed that the lady is overburdened with workload. Or there is some other reason-some deeper inner reason that she is not able to guess.
When she is preparing tasty food for her son-perhaps the destiny thought otherwise. Perhaps she has forgotten-‘some straight curves in this world-takes the shape of a perfect circle in another world.’

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The bowler started his run up.
The ground was wet due to heavy rainfall in the last night. It was perfect green top- only sincere endeavour from the grounds men did ensure the game to be started at the morning.
Facing the pacer was a short statured batsman-in his white shirt and trouser.
The red cheery did come at a pace of about 150plus something kilometer –did landed on the good length spot. And awkwardly the ball took off. Uneven bounce it is…..
Perhaps there is a lapse of concentration in the mind of a batsman. Perhaps he is in two minds-whether to leave or play the ball. It was fraction of a second- one tenth or one twentieth of a second- and that split second does it all.
The ball kisses the helmet…

Do not believe in God till you experience HimDo not believe in God till you experience Him by Mukul Kumar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The boy guessed that something different- something unusual is going to happen. This is no festival time- there is apparently no logic behind his mother bringing new clothes for him.
But this child is somehow different! He thought rationally and a little thinking helped him to fathom what is going to happen.
He is going to be introduced to Guruji-the Guru of the family for initiation. But little he might be-his mind was against the proposal-he liked to get rebel. Dragging like cattle in front of some unknown person- it is completely against his self-esteem!
Unable to resist the move from the mother- he put forward a proposal- he should question the Guru- if he can answer –the boy will consent to initiation.
Don’t Believe in God-Till you Experience Him by Mukul…

She was in need of urgent medical help-her daughter was shivering from fever. Only a mother can risk her life-letting her out on the deserted road- road that seen wrath of agitators –road that bears the brunt of clash between angry agitator and the security personnel.
Yet-she was out! She had to be out! The nearest hospital was barely a kilometre away. There was curfew imposed on the area-now and then –for the last thirty five days. At some point she had to be out on the road- carrying her feverish child- seeking medical help.
And then it all happened. She first encountered a group of security personnel-who assured her to approach. And then there was another group of paramilitary forces- their guns pointed. Sensing danger- she tried to flee. The men…

Value of computer education

jayasree's

ilogueJust think of the famous commercial which states, with the advent of mobile internet (of course of a particular service provider) India is no longer going to be fooled. Exaggerated it may sounds, but in today’s world a normal human being, is surrounded by hundreds of computer related applications, literally like “Abhimunyu” within “chkrabuhya.(enough to make you crazy if you don’t know computer). That’s why one of my colleagues once jokingly remarked that if you don’t have any computer knowledge, you are going to be rubbished.
In the last two or three decades, computer and ICT (information and communication technology) has revolutionized the way we work, the way we think and even the way we breathe. Almost all spheres of our life are encompassed by some applications of computer. Consider some of these applications-
1. Modeling-right from designing a logo to creation of a 3-D model of a house, computer…

Winning Like Virat: Think and Succeed like Kohli by Abhirup Bhattacharya
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The last ball of the last over has been bowled long time back.
There was nobody in the field- even the grounds men have long been gone. Only a slender boy was there-in the empty stadium-with a vacant look in both his eyes. He has scored duck in this match, too!
This is his third consecutive duck. His friends are talking about three consecutive tons-and here he is-with third consecutive duck.
His gleaming eyes have transformed-transformed completely-all roads before him have been closed. Will there be any way out?
Well- it is not my intent to write a tragic story-although the initial lines may sound a little dramatic. My intent is to say that even when the world seems to be against you- you can win. The boy has two avenues before him-either…

He was returning home from school-with his friends- like the other days.

But that day was destined to be a lot different than the other days- a day that perhaps changed the course of his life. He suddenly felt that his left foot is unable to carry his body- he fell on the ground- grappled with pain. His face is twisted.

He was taken to a government hospital-where the doctors declared that the young boy had a paralysis attack. For his parents the future dream was broken like glass. But it was not so for the boy.

Is he an ill fated boy for whom all roads are closed? Not exactly!

It was rise from the ashes like the phoenix.

His physical disability channeled his life to a new course- a course that…
