School And The Missing Blue Print Of Real Life

 
Many of us wonder, why a person fail in real life though he/she excel in academics? Many of us have seen people who are the top ten in academics but never could do anything significant after they leave the college (not as per you judgements, but by their own standards).
 
Many of us are quite smart and hard working. You have a dream and While in college, you have a prescribed syllabus, a teacher/professor to guide you or mentor you, your peers to compete and a very strict timeline and of course a deadline for the tests.
 
Once you finish college, you will join a nice paying company or say your dream company. You are as smart as ever or even better as days pass on.  You continue to work hard within the opportunities you receive, but go no where, as faster as you dream of and as higher as you love to.
 
Just think what is missing. As I understand, in real life, you are free without boundaries. And most of us never try to put any limitations and wander the free world. Most cases, you will have lots of dreams. But, no prescribed syllabus that could ensure your success in the real life. If you are in a corporate, it is really hard to find a genuine mentor that could guide you. Leave alone, a mentor that would help you live a better life. Many of us don't keep any timelines and dead lines. We love to live the life as it unfolds.
 
In real life, you are the one who have to prescribe the course. You are the one to decide what must be included in your syllabus and what must be removed to make space for the rest. You are the one who need to set a timeline and deadlines. And you must find a mentor that genuinely interested in helping you and is capable of guiding you.
 
If you excel in Academics, that doesn't mean you can excel everywhere. But its a proof that given a set of environment conditions, you can be committed, hardworking and achieve results. Its a proof that you could do a lot better than the average.
 
What is missing is a blueprint of your own life. If you have a dream, the only way you can achieve that dream is by creating a blueprint.  Figure out what is needed to realize the blueprint and you have the guts and energy to do it. Go get it.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
