A trip to Greater Noida

On the weekend I made my first trip to visit Greater Noida to visit an old friend from ITBHU...I loved the scenery on the way to Greater Noida...it was a great weather...raining...and I love to bike when it rains...


Randy Pausch is dead...

We all knew he would die...and that he had very less time...
He died today.
But Randy, you will always live in our hearts, in our minds, in our souls. You were a great human being.
I have never met you in real life...I only saw your video, read your blog but I miss you.
I will try to live what you taught in the last lecture...I promise!

Your fan. Your follower. Anshul

ITBHU becomes IITBHU

The news that thousands of ITBHUites had been waiting for is out...The Union Cabinet gave its much due approval for lot of strategically important news related to professional education in India...but the piece that brought a smile to me and thousands of other ITBHUites was following...

In principle approval for taking over the Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University– a constituent unit of the Banaras Hindu University, a Central University, its conversion into an Indian Institute of Technology and integrating it with the IIT system in the country.

Well, let me be very frank with you...the news may not be strategically important to me now... to me - after all I have been passed out of the college some 5 years and now the industry knows me more for what I am doing and what I will do ...but still its a different thing that...

The Secret Man - The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat

I had always wondered about Watergate scandal and I got a chance to clear some air about the mysteries in this book...though the book primarily deals with the main character who supplied Bob and Carl (the Washington posts journalists who played a major role in bringing out the crime and abuses under President Nixon's time)...and whoa! what a solid man the guy is...you have to read the book to see the entire episode from his perspective...

It reads like a true revealing book of the main character behind the scandal - who was the guy who made it all possible? why did he not come out in the open...

Somehow after reading the book - Mark felt has been etched in mind as a truly mastermind and a genius spy...I wish If i could sit and talk to him...though the book tells that he is now suffering from memory loss and is about 90 years but still...

if you are not into the politics then I would strongly recommend you read the book with below list handy - there are so many characters in the book …

Shades of Pink...

Girls love Pink!...so much so a famous showroom in Connaught Place in Delhi had all the shades possible of pink at display on mannequins...I wonder if pink color had been associated with the fair gender for ages ...in that case...I can see

A "fancy"ful thought...

Sometimes something creates an impression in our minds.

And there are times when some things make you think.

Has it ever happened with you that you want to just live in a dream. A dream which does not exist...a dream which is not even a reality ...but something you can just crave for?

Has it ever happened that while you are engrossed in the worldly affairs...your mind is somewhere else...meandering in an abyss full of thoughts ...and so brimful of dreams?

Has it ever happened to you that you start disliking your milieu (which you liked so much just a few moments ago) and that too just on a fancy?

Have you ever felt the loudness of a subtle thoguht which just creeps in mind very casually?

Well I have ...and I am overwhelmed
