Necessity is the mother of invention..

My theory exams just got over on 29th of May. So that officially pulls down the curtains to this whole show of verbal puking, they popularly call VTU exams. No more night-outs, no more slogging, no more rushing through textbooks, no more haggling for IE marks with my profis, and more importantly no more extra burden on my HDD (dimag) to memorize all those god-knows-what-they-mean-equations? Wow!! what a relief? Finally slogging ko milegi ek choti si break!!!

I am only left with my external project demo, which is probably scheduled (dates haven't been announced officially) in the first week of June. I am already feeling a sense of liberation run through my nervous system. A sense of having sailed through an unexpressible hardship. Kyu ki ek engineering student ka dard, ek engineering (student) hi samaj sakta hai? Hey don't charge me for flicking a popular bolly-woodian cliche ha...

Ab sedhe sedhe asli vichaar par aajate hai. I don't remember when was the first time I heard this adage? Saala apun ki yaadash to pehle se hi karab hai. Phir bhi toda dimaag pe zor lagke dekhenge to yaad aati hai. I think it was in my 6th grade that I first heard of this well known pro-verb. Ab aap log soch rahe honge ki aisi kya naubat aagyai, ki mujhe is subject pe likna pad raha hai? Hold on folks, have patience. I got tons of reasons why I made up my mind to jot something on this. kehne ko to hazaaro waje hai, lekin main yaha par kuchi cheezo ke baare main likh raha hu.

Almost all my friends outta here have got a DL (atleat for 2 wheelers). Whenever any of my friends offer me for a free test drive on their bike, I am forced to turn down the offer. The simple reason being... "Folks, I dunno how to ride a bike". This ain't a crime. Is it? Now don't look @ me as an ET ha. I did give it a try once on K's bike. The fact that I personally don't own a bike, does make it difficult for me to learn biking with full ease. The option of opting for a driving class hasn't been a tangible solution so for. For all those who ask me about my inability to drive a bike, I just have to say, "Necessity is the mother of invention". Ab aisi baat nahi hai ki mujhe bike chalana bil kul hi nahi aata... baat sirf itni hai ki, mujhe ab tak uski zaroorat mehsoos nahi hui hai!!!

On to a more serious issue. I have always been wondering what keeps people motivated and focussed. What is it that drives them incessantly to pursue that extra inch, which often decides the fate of the rat race they find themselves in. As I zero down on to the various sources of impetus, an obvious thing that emerges out is the fact that, they all desperately need to WIN!!! They can't afford to lose.. Jab hame koi cheez ati avashyak hojati hai, tabhi hum uske baare main soch te hain, aur usme dirchasbi dikana shuru karte hain. Necessity is the mother of invention...

When I see at things I do on a day-to-day basis be it blogging or studies, everything has got a purpose. If u find that I am pretty much of a novice, when it comes to cooking even simple dishes, it only shows that I might have never ever felt the need to cook! Saala bachelor ki zindagi bitane ke liye cooking sehna ek bahut hi important eligibilty hai yaaro! S is a pretty good cook, and he always taunts me when I confess that my cooking skills are equivalent to dancing skills of Ajay Devagan. "Saala mere ko cooking karna aati nahi hai yaar!!!". Iska matlab ye nahi ki main kabhi ise seekna nahi chahatata. It's just that I didn't feel it was necessary.

Chalo is post ko khatam ko karne se pehle, aap sab logo se is vichaar par vichaar karne ko request kartna hoon..

Just imagine urself being in the shoes (does he actually have one in that movie?) of TomHanks in cast away. If u haven't watched this movie yet, watch it and uske baad mere vichaaro par vichaar ki jiye. Imagine that ur lost on a god-knows-where island! Now would u let urself die, simply because u don't know how to swim or would you starve to death simply because you don't have anything purely vegetarian to eat? Many other constraints can be added to this. All I ask is, would you let yourself die on that island simply because you never were in to a situation like this before? Wouldn't you fight your way out of this somehow?

PS: All I intend to say is that... It's not always right to conclude about someone's potential of doing something, simply because he is presently unable to do it. It might be simply because, he/she might have not felt it necessary. Shayad isi liye kehte hain... Necessity is the mother of invention...

An Original recording of a Lady GaGa Hit was Discovered this evening with no traces of where it originated from.
Some say that it was leaked from GaGa's Record Label's headquarters.
