A Poem

It has been a long time since i have not written any poem .Maybe i am lost in this world .Maybe i dont know what to do or maybe i am just lazy .

Behta hua nadi ke tareh ,
jaane kahan aa gaya hoon mai ,
na koi manzil hai ,na koi raah hai
bas idhar se udhar ,
jaha le jaaye hawa
chale jata hoon mai .

wo samay tha kabhi jab chattane thi kai ,
wo samay tha kabhi jab ufaan tha,
badhe jaata tha bas aage he aage
kyonki aage he badhna manzil thi
ab na koi chattan hai
na he koi ufaan hai
jab kabhi thak jata hoon chalte chalte
tab khud se he takraata hoon mai.

koi mila raah mai to saath aa gaya
kuch waqt gujaar ke aage nekal gaye
kuch waqt gujaar ke peeche he reh gaye
mai bas chalta raha
aur nekal gaya itana aage
ke koi nahi raha ab saath mai,
kuch pal ke saath ke baad akela na reh jaaon,
ishliye saath se ghabrata hoon mai

chalte chalte behte behte
ek din mil jaaunga sagar se
aur ho jaaunga ek sabhi nadiyon se
door sabhi yaadon se
door sabhi riston se
jo saath rahe jo chale gaye
bhool kar ye sab baat
kar lunga samarpan
aatma visharjan
yahi soch chalta jata hoon mai

Let's Stay Together Always

I was so happy, you were laughing
With a smile that melts everything away
Spring is still far away, inside the cold earth,
Waiting for the time to sprout
For instance, even if today is painful
And yesterday's wounds remain
I want to believe that I can free my heart and go on
I cannot be reborn
But I can change as I go on, so
Let's stay together always

Smile only at me and touch me with those fingers
This simple desire is everlasting
I want things to be simple
Let's finally get across this sea of mournful sorrow
For instance, even if today is painful
Someday it will become a warm memory
If you leave everything up to your heart
I understand the meaning our living here
It is to know the joy of having been born
Let's stay together always

My Pace is Just Fine

Upgrade , backup and restore

Filenet servers for Nestle were being upgraded on Saturday and Sunday , so my presence was required for emergency . I reached office at 1:30 pm on Saturday . Shyam told me that upgrade has failed and we will be rolling back . It was PE that failed to upgrade . I have yet to see the error which caused PE unable to connect to RDBMS .

Now i know that i will not be required as we have not changed anything in AE , still i had to be there till everything is completed and tested properly . So i waited while CE was being restored to previous version . After 4 hours we were informed that restoration has been done , so the support team checked CE but CE services were down .

So while the support and backup team were working on restoring CE , i watched Pirates of Caribbean 3 . Finally we were able to bring one node of CE up but i have already spent 27 hours in office without any sleep . We checked all scan stations and AE . Everything was up and working . i was pretty sure that now everything is fine so i decided to go .

so lesson learned from this was that while making backup make sure that it will work fine . and sometimes upgrade does not work

i enjoyed working at night , spending whole day without sleep . After many years i saw sun rising in the morning , birds flying and transition from night to day .

Flag and Bus

On 15th , i thought that i should be more active and decided to watch some movie . I thought "Harry potter and Order of phoenix " will be fine . PVR was showing it . So i went to Garuda mall .While i was waiting for bus , i saw many children waving tricolor .It was everywhere . every fourth auto had a flag . Many buses had it . and some motorcycles also had it . I was surprised to see so many flags everywhere .

There was a flower show at Lalbagh . Even from bus i can see thousands of people in and around Lalbagh .Because of traffic bus stopped many times and it took me more than two hours to reach Mayo hall .

I know that i will not get ticket for "Chak de India " . But as harry potter was released last month, i was hoping for it . When i reached Garuda mall , i saw that it is Inox and PVR is at Forum . As i was in no mood to travel more , i decided to have lunch there and come back .

But there was one problem , like Abhimanyu i know how to go from my place to mayo hall but dont know how to come back . So after waiting more than half an hour for the bus i decided to do what i do in such situations . i walked up to MG road from where i took the bus . As i had pass, i don't need to worry where the bus will go . Luckily it was going to Shivaji nagar and i know which bus will go from there to my place.

I waited for the bus but it didn't come . Because of traffic i had to wait for more than 2 hours .

So my whole day was spent in waiting for bus and commuting .

So i confirmed what i already know . It is better to enjoy holiday at home sleeping and watching cartoons .

Gauri told me about Illusion when i was in third year .As he has lost it , i went to market and bought it . I finished it in less than an hour .And it become one of my favorite book.It is very simple yet very profound. Some of my favorite quotes from Illusion are :

  • Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers.
  • Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself. Being true to anyone else or anything else is not only impossible, but the mark of a false messiah.
  • A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion....this is the place to go now.But the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.
  • The truth you speak has no past and no future. It is, and that's all it needs to be.
  • What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
  • Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished. If you're alive, it isn't.
  • Everything on this list may be wrong.

There was a time when we had only one channel :Doordarshan . It was not even 24 hours channel . Obviously there were few serials and fewer cartoons . He-Man must be one of the earliest cartoon that i watched because i remember the dialogue "BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL!! I HAVE THE POWER ."I remember GI Joe , Sigma and some other cartoons but all i remember is their name .

But there were some cartoons i can never forget . It is mostly because of the opening song they had .

Gaya Baya : gaya baya gaya baya
kissi ko hasaane aaya
kissi ko rulaane aaya
gaya baya gaya baya

Jungle Book : Jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai

arre chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai

Duck Tales :Jindagi toofani hai
Duck Tales
gadiyan lajer hawaai jahaj ,
yeh hai duck tales

TalesPin : dont remember the song only the tune

kahaniya : Guccha hai bhai guchha hai kahaniyon ka guccha hai
Kahani le lo
khatti hai to namak lagake
khatti hai to namak laga ke
gale mai utare paani
le lo le lo
guchha hai bhai , guchha hai
kahaniyon ka gichha hai
kahani le lo
