IND VS SL, WORLD CUP FINAL 2011

Its the 49th over. India needs 4 runs to win. A billion people are in the streets. Soon, Captain Not so cool hits a 6 and a nation goes bonkers. ( WHILE I WERE WATCHING ZACK N CODY )

 

Okay, So I have an assignment for all the imaginary people who are gonna read this.

OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING IMAGE.

IMG_2219.jpg

 

SOOOOOO, WHAT DID YOU OBSERVE ?

  • Sunday Evening Fun ?
  • People chilling ?
  • Good times ?

 

Well, now notice the right side of the image. You probably noticed the KIDS STANDING. But, didn’t really give a shit, though.

I see a mirror image of myself in those kids.

Okay, So imagine doing all the following -:

  • Getting an exclusive pitch on these streets.
  • Convincing your dad to get the most EXPENSIVE bat in sports shop.
  • Buying an overpriced BALL that probably cracks in a day.
  • Buying Wickets ( YES, WICKETS………WHO EVEN BUYS WICKETS WHEN YOU CAN GET BRICKS lol )

And then having to -:

Surrender to random adults (whom you won’t ever see) who’ll -:

  • Invade your pitch and would select you in the end
  • Batting ( You’ll go last )
  • Bowling ( Well, forget it )
  • Dictate terms
  • Take your expensive bat and trash it
  • And lastly, hit a lofty shot and ensure you won’t ever find your ball.
  • ALL THIS HAPPENS while you were standing in the right and waiting for your batting to arrive.

Well, you surely are bound to LOVE the sport when this happens multiple times. Aren’t you ?

Buy new stuff.

Wait for your turn to come (JUST WAIT)

Stand on the outliers of the ground and get yelled at for dropping a catch impossible for a midget.

Go home without your ball.

Convince your mom to give you more money for a ball.

AND THEN THE CYCLE CONTINUES……….

HOW I HACKED MY BRAIN AND SCORED 3.04 GPA WITHOUT REALLY EVER STUDYING (earlier) #NOTACLICKBAIT

– JAI AHUJA

No, This is not a motivational post.

THING’S REAL

Okay, So let me describe the situation -:

Imagine your semester end exams are 2 days away. You don’t even know a single formula or in fact you don’t know shit about any of the subjects to be precise. Somehow, you study precisely 1 day for each subject (the day before the exam) and pull of the impossible. GETTING A GPA ABOVE 3 (Out of 4).

SOUNDS UNREAL, RIGHT ? (Try reading this with DHAN TE NAN sound in your head)

Did it feel good ? YEAH, WHY NOT LOL

Did I deserve it ? HECK NO

Did I leak papers ? I would’ve gotten a 3.74 / 4 instead of a 3.04 / 4 then

Can it happen again ? NOT REALLY (OR MAYBE YES)

So, How’d I do it ? The answer is (RANDOM DRUM ROLL MOMENT)

MODAFINIL.

IMG_1912.JPG

 

Simply GOOGLE it. ( I would’ve copied the info from the first link anyway )

Nicknamed as ‘ THE LIMITLESS PILL’. It can however work wonders.

tenor.gif

Wanna feel like SUPERMAN and always have the dopamine flowing to achieve whatever you want ? Try It ( at your own risk OBVIOUSLY )

WHAT DOES IT DO ?

8-10 hours of creative energy, focus and confidence. (Isn’t that all one needs while working)

WHAT IT DID TO ME – :

  • FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS – Ever studied 14-15 Hrs a day for a WEEK  without DISTRACTIONS and still felt fresh ? Guess NOT
  • MOTIVATION AND ENERGY – FELT THAT LATELY ? – ‘ Shit, that subject was easy to ace.’
  • MEMORY – I COULD REMEMBER THINGS  PRECISELY AFTER READING THEM ONCE.
  • FORMULAES – I DEVOURED THEM.
  • CALCULATIONS – NEVER WENT WRONG OR COMPLETELY WENT WRONG. Haha
  • SLEEP – Set a new RECORD….. 44 HRS AWAKE. ( Not everything’s positive lol – Can you beat that ?)

 

All this stuff  + Loosing body fat (  SOUNDS LIKE A SHORT TERM FORMULA FOR SUCCESS)

WELLLLLLLLLL !!!!!

Where do you get this ?

well, getting PHARMA Drugs in India is a joke. Just walk up to the chemist and ask for it and thats it.

Is It ETHICAL ? Is it SAFE ?

GO FIND OUT WHAT THE WORLD & SCIENCE THINKS. 

Stephen Hawking death: The famed physicist’s best quotes

‘People who boast about their IQ are losers’

Stephen-Hawking-Death

The famed physicist Stephen Hawking has died, aged 76. During decades in the public eye – from his work investigating black holes to a cameo on The Simpsons – he amassed a portfolio of witty and memorable quotes.

In the words of others, Hawking was described on Wednesday as “a colossal mind and a wonderful spirit”; “inspirational”; and an “ambassador of science”.

On life and death

Hawking did not believe in an afterlife, he said in 2011. But the threat of one was not necessary to induce people to behave well, he added. When asked how a person should live their only life, he said: “We should seek the greatest value of our action.”

In the same interview with The Guardian, Hawking said having motor neurone disease meant he had lived with the possibility of dying early for several decades. He added: “I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.”

The scientist took a pithy line on staying cheerful when he spoke to The New York Times in 2004, saying: “Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”

And he was quoted in People’s Daily Online in 2006 as having said about euthanasia: “The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.”

On artificial and extraterrestrial intelligence

“I think the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”, Hawking told the BBC in a 2014 interview. “Once humans develop artificial intelligence, it will take off on its own and redesign itself at an ever-increasing rate.

“Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded.”

Despite pushing for humanity to escape Earth and explore space, and in 2016 backing the Breakthrough Starshot interstellar spacecraft project, Hawking felt strongly that first contact with alien species should be avoided.

He told The National Geographic Channel in 2004: “I think it would be a disaster. The extraterrestrials would probably be far in advance of us. The history of advanced races meeting more primitive people on this planet is not very happy, and they were the same species. I think we should keep our heads low.”

On human intelligence

“People who boast about their IQ are losers”, he said in the December 2004 interview with The New York Times.

Nonetheless in a 1999 episode of The Simpsons – ‘They Saved Lisa’s Brain’, in which Lisa joins the Springfield branch of Mensaand eventually takes over the running of the town – Hawking silenced all the show’s brainiest characters by announcing during an argument as to who was smartest: “Big deal. My IQ is 280.”

He further admonished the group with a lecture on how power corrupts, while sending himself up with an Inspector Gadget-style turn from his motorized wheelchair.

Hawking was famously possessed of a sharp wit. Speaking to comedian John Oliver on his programme Last Week Tonight the physicist was asked whether in a reality that contained multiple universes, one existed in which the host was “smarter than you”.

“Yes, and also a universe where you’re funny”, the Cambridge academic shot back.

On his fame

“The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognised. It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away”, he said in an interview on Israeli TV in December 2006.

He told the NYT two years earlier he wanted his books “sold on airport bookstalls”, however.

On space and the universe

Hawking remains best-known for his work describing the nature of black holes, the fascinating and enigmatic regions of space where gravity is so strong even light cannot escape.

Of the phenomenon, he said in a 1996 book: “Einstein was wrong when he said, ‘God does not play dice’. Consideration of black holes suggests not only that God does play dice, but that he sometimes confuses us by throwing them where they can’t be seen.”

In his classic book A Brief History of Time, Hawking famously said of scientists striving to produce a unifying theory explaining the universe’s mechanics: “If we discover a complete theory, it would be the ultimate triumph of reason – for then we should know the mind of God.”

The memorable, metaphorical statement has been often discussed since it was published in 1988, but questions over Hawking’s beliefs about the origins of the universe were answered firmly in his 2010 book, The Grand Design.

In it, he wrote: “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.”

How to become an Alpha Male?

Ms. Jinali Mehta

Do you ever worry about how to impress women? Or how to seem more confident at workplace or at social gatherings!  We know how.

Women’s Day is here and since so much is being done to please them, we decided to ask what the ladies themselves about what they like the most in their men. Here is a list that we compiled of several tips and tricks you can use to charm your dear ladies!

#GoGetHer

Confidence

This cannot be overstated. If you think highly of yourself and believe unquestionably in your own capabilities, men and women alike will respond to you. When you walk into a room as an alpha male, you simply know other people will listen to and respect what you have to say. If you doubt it, so will every other person in the room.

Use humor to your advantage-

That does not mean be the clown of the room, but that you should be able to smile with genuine pleasure, to laugh at yourself, even to playfully laugh at others without seeming sarcastic or spiteful.

Let your body do the talking

The way you carry yourself speaks volumes to those around you, without you even making a sound. Your posture, your hand gestures, your stance—all of it sends signals to those around you about your place in the world. You want those signals to be strong and confident, not protective and small.

Don’t be afraid to fill the room with your presence-

Stand with strong posture, use expansive gestures, and look relaxed and comfortable in your surroundings.

Listen

The alpha male, the true leader, spends more time listening than speaking. Listen actively and attentively, and people will respond. The more you listen without judgement, the more people will open up to you, and may even tell you things they never tell anybody. This is because they trust you innately—a key trait of the alpha male.

Watch others-

One key way to learn how to be an alpha male is to emulate other alpha males. Watch how they talk, how they stand, and how they act. Alpha males tend to have a straight posture and walk around with ease and confidence.

Join a gym and get fit-

Staying in shape will not make you an alpha male—that must come from the inside—but it will help with your health and well-being. It also sends another signal: the man who takes good care of himself can take care of others, too.

Be honest-

Some feel that alpha males will lie and cheat to get what they want, but this only applies to men who are anything but alpha males. If you find you must trick someone into thinking you’re worth their time and energy, it’s actually evidence that you aren’t. Make sure you earn everything you get by adopting a policy of radical honesty. Be exactly who you are at all times; everyone else can take you or leave you.

Dress well-

Try to look better than the guys around you so that you stand out. For example, wear patterns, collared shirts, nice pants, and possibly a tie. Don’t wear shirts that advertise a brand name or your favorite band; you want to advertise yourself. Dressing well does not mean dressing up, necessarily. Your clothes should fit you well, should be comfortable, and should be appropriate for the situation. Remember—clothes are window dressing. If you exude confidence and strength, and command respect by your presence, your clothes will be secondary.

Learn how to flirt-

Knowing how to forge a romantic connection is essential to being seen as an alpha male. Being confident, accomplished, and attractive doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve got what it takes to interact with a potential mate but will provide you a huge advantage.

Develop new skills-

By learning new skills and developing new abilities, you keep your mind and body sharp and in shape. It helps you develop a well-rounded skill set that will make you the go-to guy when people have questions. Become a man not just of style, but of substance by studying things that interest you, and becoming conversant and practiced in each idiom. 

Above all, be a leader

This means not only taking charge of a situation but doing it well. Start in your immediate surroundings by being a leader in the workplace, helping your team perform, or even asserting yourself as your dog’s pack leader. Practice being the kind of leader that people will want to follow—and not just the first one who volunteered for the job.

Good Luck!

Them Titles.

“Can friendship last forever?”

 

“He’s MY bestie” “She’s my best friend, stay away from her” “Don’t even think of hitting on him, he’s my boyfriend, geddit?” and what not. How often does this happen in your life? How frequently do you see this happening? How important are these mere titles of best friend and boyfriend/ girlfriend and fav boy/ girl? Anything more than just conveying that two individuals are great friends or that they help each other in sorting their issues out; and most of the times hyping their bond just to showcase to the world that yes, even I have somebody whom I talk to for most the time, he’s the best person I’ve come across? No. Don’t you think that in the process of living up to the standards of the people around you, you just hollow your friendship and give it a superficial edge? Why is friendship important to you? 

What is ironic is that people these days assign such valuable statuses to people whom you have known only for a short span of time. One month of knowing each other, that person becomes the best person alive. We ludicrously make it work this way. Apart from this, what the underlying truth in most of these friendships is provokes me to script this. The apparent ‘best friends’ loathe and despise and envy each other. Those are the same people who are trying to bring down their superficial dear ones. They back stab each other. They vie against each other for attention on social networking sites.

Makes me laugh, this. I see how most of our Facebook and Instagram feeds are replete with captions for photos like ‘Best friend’, ‘Fav’, ‘Favboy/ Favgirl’, ‘Can’t do without him/ her’ etc. Oh, and let’s not forget the hashtagged ones such as ‘#bestie’ ‘#mygirl/ #myboy’ and several such hashtags. It pleases me to read that my friends and on majority occasions, acquaintances, are happily living their life. Cheers to that. But how truthful are those captions tho? No really. Do you think what is posted on in the virtual is completely truthful and depicts the true status of what is going on between two (or more) individuals? Think about it.

In an attempt to living up to people’s expectations, all of us are losing ground in our comrade’s eyes. As easy as it can get, isn’t it? Instead of laying stress on building healthier relations, we run after giving it a societal exposure. And sometimes when many people are made aware about an existing bond on their contact list, the relation is almost over and over. We all need to grow up, re-think about what is more important- a real bond or one which could break as easily as glass, courtesy the society? 


“Take someone who doesn’t keep score, who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who has not the slightest interest even in his own personality: he’s free.”

Embrace or Judge

“If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

― Paulo Coelho

It is as easy to judge a person as it is to breathe.

What is it to judge a person- it is to be prejudiced and hence altering your opinions on a person and redlining them on basis like appearance, clothing, demeanour etc. It is a rather unnoticed process of barring yourself from knowing a person who could possibly complete you, perhaps not what you’re looking for (my Economics taught me that needs should be satisfied before wants).


My very motive of writing this piece is to attempt answering a quite simple, deep question: What does it take to avoid judging a person?


To me, it is all about flaunting the scars that you’ve got on your body, shouting out to the world that yes, “I have, with utmost pride, come out to be triumphant in all that was put it my way, to hinder my mirth.” By this, by Nature’s decree, one ceases to judge.
To me, it is all about rightfully saying “Been there, done that.” Effortlessly, you convey to the world that you’ve borne sufficient pain to be making the daft mistake of judging the one experiencing it right in front of you.
To me, it is about being wise and empathetic towards the ones who are confronting the evil that is diffused among us. All of us are inflicted with the words from the ones of our own kind on our path to attain the holy grail. Briefly, every person you come across is fighting a battle you are ignorant about. 


Often are people judged by the car they drive, the apparels they wear or the cell phones they use or for the worse, the people they choose to fall in love with. What does it take to judge a person?


The fulfilment through and free and regular supply of all our demands, the lack of absence of any sort of boundaries, limits.

Let’s face this- most of us are given a monthly allowance to match our expenses which at times compels us to avoid attending a social gathering, doesn’t it? It isn’t bad on your part to respond negatively going against your parents’ will by demanding for an extra sum. The ridiculous issue is what people make of it. Despite going through the very same problems, we choose to mock our friends for it than perceiving their apathy. The manner in which we deal with this has become a concoction of mundane issues.

Today, we’ve drooped down to a level where we don’t attend parties only because we fear being judged for repeating piece(s) of cloth. It is just a plain ludicrous crisis that we all are heading towards.

Why do people judge people for loving a person of their own sex? Only because we’ve been brought up in a society where we’ve been blinded right as we were born.


Let me quote Billie Joe Armstrong “I think people are born bisexual, and it’s just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of ‘Oh, I can’t’. They say it’s taboo. It’s ingrained in our heads that it’s bad, when it’s not bad at all. It’s a very beautiful thing.”

We’ve throttled our mentality to heinous thought processes evoking feelings of disgust and disdain. And it is not only with respect to love, it is with regard to all that we just fancy.


There are aplenty issues which could be cited as a part of the justification, but all I shall do is leave you with this mesmerising video:

Any Hans Zimmer music fanboys here, eh?

“The more one judges, the less one loves.”

― Honoré de Balzac

Cheers!
