 It's funny how many times we hear this phrase "You can be what you want to be"....sounds like wishful thinking.....

IOscar_Pistorius even get to hear "you live in an idealised world..wake up...get real." or "yeah..This sounds good in books....not in real life"...so on.

 Where words fall short, actions come afront to dazzle us :)
Oscar Pistorius lives yet another of his days that infuses reality into idealism as he runs off to glory in the London Olympics 2012.
 
Known as the blade runner, this man from South Africa debuted yesterday in the able-bodied London Olympics after a long struggle & litigations that overturned the International Committee's decision (of blocking him from the events). He posted a second-place finish in a 400m heat guaranteeing a place in today's final race. He is the first double amputee to compete at the Olympics.

The athelete's legs were amputed below the knee before his first birthday & runs with the aid of carbon fibre artificial limbs. He has come up to win numerous medals in international events.

It is an honour to watch "the fastest man on no legs" sprint on the tracks of the greatest sporting event!

”Food on fire”, “Smoked”, “Roasted”...I didn't have a clue what was it called....several google searches later, I finally found the word, “Flambe”...meaning “flamed” in French.

Ah, so there it was.... But I could not find a single page which would tell me the secret to replicate the flambe without alcohol :-/ I was like damn these firangs, puting alcohol in food as well :P
I was damn sure the pasta place did not use alcohol, nor do the awesome cooks in India.

TIP Foundations, an enterprise, a dream fermenting over last 8 years… All efforts to plan it out since last 2 years… An ambition to set things right in the country I love… An ambition to get my friends together… A dream to Live / Die for…

A MTech degree from an University, primarily to compliment TIP Foundations; to gather related expertise, knowledge, contacts & experiences…

A new job, promising a handsome salary & new venues to explore…

You quit your 1st ever company, holding a nice position to pursue your dreams… You come home to realise all of your friends are too busy fighting their lives… You somehow try to make things happen, but your energy keeps falling short… Your application for the MTech & the hushed up Delhi tour… Your mausaji’s forcibly uploading of your resume on the internet, so that you could get back to the conventional path of earning… As you start getting calls for job interviews, your state of complete confusion… And to make things intense, your policy of not-objecting unless you’re sure of holding a strong, valid ground…

How easy / difficult is it to break one cycle of thoughts forever and start another?
Well, it may take an easy instant to snap or it can stretch to a very uneasy stretch on the timeline...
As my fav punch line goes: "It's all in the Mind".
