I am sure I can fly... :)

0 chances on day 0
In casual wear by noon

1 chance on day 1
Nailed it by evening

Dream come true

Happy for a few moments
Satisfaction and Relief prevails!

My Life at MDI has come a full circle!

In the MDI interview had mentioned that I am interested in an MBA from MDI as I want to switch to Business Consulting. Faculty back then had told me that it would be difficult to get a Consulting job here. But the confident aspirant that I was I had boldly declared that two years is a long time... things would change and I would get a my desired career track from MDI.

And things did change drastically in these two years...Much beyond my wildest dreams! :)

Leave aside the confident bragging that I indulged in back then it was just a dream. But 20th Jan 2009 was the day when that dream of mine did get realized. Got the one and only shot at it in more ways than one and I nailed it. But it was not all smooth sailing , there were lots of anxious moments all through the day and need I say through the days and months preceding that day too!

Thankfully I kept my cool and didn't fall for temptations along the way. And in the few cases that I did they didn't work out. So in the end the script had a fairytale ending. Emotions, suspense, drama it had everything along the way and more so on the day it all culminated into a grand finale.

My belief in the ultimate scriptwriter of them all - the one who writes our destinies has grown even stronger now.

After all... Hum sab to rang manch ki kathputliyaan hain... Jiski dor Upparwaale k haathon mein hai!!

Thank You God! :)

Now just hoping that there's a happy ending planned for all of us in our MDI story!

I Believe I Can Fly...

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky...

With this belief I am ready for the days ahead... Bring em On!! :)

Going through perhaps one of the most toughest phases of my life.
Its looking dull and gloomy and its not just today's weather that I am referring to over here, there's lot of gloom all around in general.

I can sense that some are still waiting anxiously clinging to that one ray of hope. Banking on it to cast sway the dark clouds and bring lot of sunshine in their lives.

But what is worrying me is the other section - the majority one which is now tumbling down into a black hole of hopelessness.

It is getting really scary because there is nothing more dangerous in this world than a person who has lost hope. When one is completely cornered and has nothing to lose there is just one option left and that is to fight back, to give it back, to vent it out. And somehow I can sense that the general mood around me is heading towards such a scenario.

I just hope and pray to God that he takes care of not just me and the gloomy weather but all of us especially the ones who are on the verge of losing hope and belief. After all we all have to live in hope...

PS: My 50th post couldn't have been gloomier than this for sure!

Happy New Year!

Just came back from the New Years Party of MDI. As I write this I have finally come to terms with the fact that another year has come to an end. And I must admit that there is an overwhelming sense of relief at this thought. Simple reason being, 2008 has by far been the toughest year of my life. The lows have perhaps not outnumbered the highs but then I never had so many low points in a year alone. :|

So I ushered in 2009 with lots of hope rather than happiness. Hoping that this year would reverse the trend of 2008 and bring lots of cheer in my life.

On this very hopeful note wish everyone a great 2009 on all fronts!

P.S: Have made some resolutions in my head but this year I plan to give them a serious thought later today and come up with concrete ones which I'll adhere to. :)
