Daffodils in Life’s way

                                       Many a daffodils laughed upon the little road by a brook, many a birds chirped upon the humble grass they fed on. Many waves lashed the shores and many a winds sang the song of nature. But marched on the soldiers of today, dreaming. A world of tomorrow they lost for the world of today they had

                                       How many has a seen a daffodil? Many have I suppose, but how many has a seen a daffodil today? Not many I should think. Where did these daffodils go? Did they just vanish or had they all withered. But neither had happened, the truth is you just did not see them today, they were there and they were still blossoms but they were not seen. These daffodils are like shadows they appear and go but they are hardly noticed.

                                       Often in life the most memorable are memories of small things. These little things that you have seen and you have heard will play a role in life that no big things will. The beauty of remaining fall is that they shall be only discovered by the wise. The intelligent has sight but only the wise knows where to look. The little things you have done for someone and the little things they did it for you are all in the package. The amount and magnitude of things are secondary to the way it was done for you.

                                       Those small moments of love and that instant of a smile, aren’t those that you cherish more that the grades you scored in 1oth grade?

                                       But somehow along the line, people forget what they seek and they pursue things they think they want. They forget to see what the daffodils along the way by looking up at the crowd ahead. They do fail to realize that if they won’t be finding happiness along the way they hardly will find it at the end of the journey. Everyone should now and then halt and take a look around. They will be bewildered by the sings they see by simply looking at them.

                                       Everyone I would like to tell you something, when on any journey make sure that you take a time out for yourself, you can discover answers to many complex questions by simple looking at the world around us. Nature is a great teacher and an ultimate adobe of all information. But after all make sure to see the daffodils before you walk away.

Dreamscape: A world of Possibilities

                                       The world of dreams is as dreamy as it can ever get. It’s so dreamy that any attempt to define or describe it would miss their mark by a very considerable amount. Dreams are something so personalisable that they define the very concept of owning. Dreams blur the thin line between the real and the imaginary. Every person has their very personal set of dreams. It’s something that they keep very close to themselves or for a few it’s something that despise more than anything.

                                       The dreamscape is the setting of a dream and what differentiates the dreamscape from the world of imagination is the level of details and accuracy of events involved. Doubt it? Have you noticed that when in a dream you really feel that it is real? The dreams provide you with an alternate reality. The reality produced is not often a logical set of events but a set of events and people somehow related to you produced before you in some random fashion. Scientist does argue that the sequence of events are non-logically related but somehow related through some process. But let’s not discuss these technicalities.

On dream that I particularly remember is this one, unlike most dreams I have had they are not a series of visuals from some random part of my brain but it was a very close to heart dream. The setting of the dream fell at a time when I have had achieved success in life letting my think of the possible ways of using my remnant life. Quite deep! It’s is what I thought of it at first but further thought revealed to me that the dream itself had large credentials to look into?

                                       A person bored of wealth and a hectic lifestyle I had decide to abandon it all and seclude myself to an isolated life and my lovely wife has decided to accompany me. Living such a life produced to me many questions of the utility of life. Then the I in my dreams decided to move into countryside have a nice house and go teach. Teaching to me seemed as absurd as it sound snow, but soon I found out that there is nothing in life as rewarding as this is. This life I liked as much as it sounds now.

                                       The dream opened before a new tread of thought that I had never ever had before it opened by eyes to a world that lay before me but I never bothered to look. Dreams are powerful, so powerful that they can instill new thoughts in you and they can make people change overnight. Dreams are fundamental to health so is it fundamental to the person’s purpose on earth. To dream is a great ability, and to dream big is phenomenal but to be able to dream and act up on it is talent.

My Little Sister !

Guess who's the real princess. Huh!

                                Its been a long and dramatic wait. Such long phone calls and such a gigantic packing up. Shes been packing for a long time. When ever we call my aunt shes packing. She puts in her cute little sketches, her year book,even her teddy bear or an elephant, I cant remember which,. Oh! Then again only god knows what else she packed. Every now and then I would want her back here after all most of  the year we are half a world apart and shes the only sister i have ever known and I will ever have.

                                Ever time she calls she says always of how much wanna meet us. She is just in First Grade and she knows us all. I clearly remember the last time she came. Its was her first time . She had only heard our voices and she actually believed we lived inside her phone. When she came to visit us for the first time, She was so thrilled and was wondering how all the people in her phone came along with her and she never noticed them.

Snow Balling in dodge ridge
                                This is much more personal than anything I have ever written, From the superficial to the 'off topic' things we have discussed. From the crazy to the insane. But this, This is every bit really what i feel right now! this very moment. For a start I should tell the truth, I have for ever wished for a sister and I have finally got this one. Be us far apart but she will forever be my cuddly cute little doll. I love her for all she is. Her cute smile that stretches across her cheek or the locks or hair that runs down untidily across her little face.

                                She may just be a small girl but she sure is a big handful! Every time she sees me, She screens out loud and runs yelling " u aint gonna catch me ". She never gets tired of our little game of catching. When I finally stop chasing, She would sneak up on me, teasing me and taunting me into chasing her again. She would pop her little head over the sofa or from under a curtain. She would peep over the staircase or hide herself behind someone. Our game and its so much fun when its with her, that i just wait for her force me into chasing her. She had got her yearbook and she showed me all the infinite things she had done from the princess for Halloween to her Kindergarten Graduation ceremony.

                                Now the best part about my sister is always when we go shopping. Oh its such a nightmare with her running around the entire place, wardrobe and the stands and the people and god knows what else. There is so much to see that she wants to be at all places at once, I suppose. Her giggle is all that we can get to follow her up in the impenetrable crowd. I would certainly like to know how she manages to get around all these people. Poor girl, When she wants something she would just whisper it into our ears and makes really sure that her mommy is not watching. We sneak buy things and roam around exploring  the entire place ( only when she decided she had enough running around ). Never a shy person she gets along so well. She would climb on us with the ease of a monkey.

                                Now today when she left, I feel so empty. I had so much to do the past couple of weeks that my tomorrow is blank. I have no one to cuddle and no one to run after. Its feels so empty and silent. May be its just a couple of days after all i have two brothers and one in 3rd grade. It will be fun as usual taunting and irritating him.  Its just another years wait till my little sister drops by for her summer vacation.

Bon Voyage Dear .

Google Plus : First look

Google Plus is Here !

                              Quite a surprise Google has for the world this summer and that was Google Plus. Google to have come up with something to counter Facebook was not surprising, Nobody expects Google to quietly lose their space on the web. But for sometime Google was quite and now everybody knows why!. Google was secretly working on its very own social networking platform and that platform is Google +.

                              Google + is the super cute social networking site from Google. Something too cute and cuddly to be designed by Google. A nice and cozy notification area and a super serine nav-bar, something that is certain to make people go back for Google again and again. Unlike Facebook with its awfully crowded and poorly place objects Google has managed place everything and anything its its super simple interface.

                              Google has so far announced five of its main features namely: Circles, Hangouts, Sparks, Instant Upload and Huddles. 

Circles : 
                              Circles are Google's answer to your privacy concerns you want to say " hi " to your close friends and no one else just post in your circle, something that Facebook seems unable to provide as conveniently as Google does. This feature incorporates the real life " Social Circles" on the web. Quite groovy! You can be parts of circles and each circle can hangout together do stuff together and everything else together. Something like a group of friends hanging out.

                              One thing that stands out in the Google circles is how effortlessly one can add delete switch and move people in and around their circles. Its so smooth the drag and drop is exceptional. One can literally drag and drop anything anywhere.

Hangouts : 

                              Hang out are yet another social concept that Google has introduced and this features its top notch video conferencing ability. Anyone in a circle can hang out with anyone else and when new members come they automatically gets added up to your hangout area so you all can have a lovely interactive time together. It even showcases a feature where the person who is the loudest and most active gets noticed and highlighted automatically.

Sparks : 

                              Sparks is a service that eats ion your interests, your regular searches , your online trends to find out things that you may like. Like music you may like, pictures you may like, videos articles, blogs and even things you might be interested in buying. All this delivered to you.

Instant Upload : 

                              This one is for the phone lover in you , This lets you automatically share your photos and videos as soon as you take them with you close circles. This eliminates any need for you to manually do anything. Google says ... just click, click and click away...

Huddles :

                              Ever wanted to huddle together, Google things you need to and things webs a good place to do so. The final one of the many featured tricks are the huddle. Huddle is a something between a group chat and your regular chats. If you are trying to decide in something with many of your friends. Google sums it all up into  a single group chat. Now this one I need to try it out a lot to tell more.  

Closed Tests :

                              Currently Google is offering its social services to a very small set of users withe each able to get a maximum of 15 users to the service, Google has promised to open up its platform for the wider audience soon. But they have set upo a very cool intro site for Google plus here

The big Buzz :

                              The big buzz now is how Google is going take out Facebook. Google has made it clear that they will not be in anyway competing with the social network giant. But, the actions seems to tell a different story. The buzz and the wave didn't make it out alive but the new kid in the block is no kid at all, he is a warrior and Google is here for the fight. Who ever wins the global internet users stands to.

Go sign up for an alert here. Google will let you know as soon as you can use Google plus.
