Is there something called google addiction? If so, I have it. Because, I seem to google every small things. Every silly doubts. About how to do this. How to do that.
In a way, it might be good because I can get to know what people think about all this. But it kinda kills my creativity and independent thoughts too.
If you get satisfied after achieveing something, will you work to improve in it or will you celebrate your achievment and take rest? I think the tendency to get satisfied easily with small things is both good and bad. Good because you would be happy and satisfied for most of your life and bad because you won’t have the drive to become better in what you are good at.
Getting hurt is much better than hurting someone else. It is easier to forgive someone else than forgiving yourself.
In the movie ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’, the hero asks the heroine about the extremely beautiful and seemingly ‘perfect’ garden which roughly translates to “This garden is so perfect, yet something is missing. What could it be?” and she replies that “It is this perfection which makes it feels like we are missing something”.
In a way, I could find this concept extending to many things in life. For example, when I take a photo, usually the first pic I take without the least planning is the best. The more I try to make things perfect and get the best shot, the worse it gets. Another beautiful example is of Marilyn Monroe. The ‘imperfection’ that we call a mole on her cheek makes her perfect face more beautiful. Similar situations happens in science too. One example I know of is the dislocations that we call as a defect in the perfect crystal of the material could be used to strengthen the material.
Maybe it is the natural beauty in imperfections which make them appealing. So, stop attaining perfectionism, because, imperfection is also an element in perfectionism. Learn to use the imperfections to make your perfect things more perfect!
There is a dialogue in the tamil movie Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya – “intha vali enaku pudikkum” (I like this pain). Sometimes, we all do like some pain, right? Be it physical or emotional. Little bit of pain feels good sometimes. You might even feel proud of it. Is it the proudness that make us like the pain in the first place?
I get really happy when people appreciate my courage and strength when I faced the adversities I faced in my life. It used to give a big kick to me. But I realized later that anyone could do the same if given a chance. Maybe they could even do better.
Chance might be a wrong word here, but I prefer to use it. Because all adversities are a chance. A chance to learn and be strong. Because you have no choice but to face it. You might be surprised by what you can face when you have no other choice.
This could be demotivating, but it is good to know this so that you dont get over or under confident about yourselves.
I never thought I would write about you one day! I always thought that nature is having a lot of trees and plants and greenery. Coming from Kerala, it is typically what you can expect. But you, Hyderabad, made me fall in love with nature without the cliched greenery. The sunrises and sunsets we see here are a rare sight at Kerala unless you go to a beach or so (due to the trees).

You made me fall in love with the painted sky and this barren land and the beauty it has. The wind it brings. The reason it gave me to walk around the campus at morning and evening, alone or with friends. The feeling it creates in my heart. Which makes life feel like worth living.
This is also beautiful and satisfying to the soul, as much as the greenery at Kerala. I learned to never underestimate any place, because, everything has pros and cons.
