Daily Prompt: Let’s Dance

I am a born dancer or at least that is what people say about me mostly…I don’t even remember since what age I started tapping my foot, but I know I love dancing…

Even today I can’t walk straight like any other normal girl…But the best memory was the one when I attended my cousin’s first birthday party…Everyone was dancing like a mad man on the dance floor…due to the loss of my Mother-in-law few months back…we were little bit upset…she was very excited about this party…so were we, but my mother in law’s sudden death changed everything…still I attended the function with my hubby, to get some fresh air…

We all were dancing and showing our best dance moves…as everybody was asking my Hubby (who is an amazing dancer) to groove little bit on the floor, I asked DJ to put on his favorite song…instead he kept playing his own mixes, after half an hour also, when he didn’t play our song, we left the floor for others and went to enjoy finger licking awesome food….

Party was almost about to end…when DJ started playing romantic numbers, and there he played that famous song from Aashiqui Movie “Tumhi ho”…I don’t even remember when he dragged me to the dance floor…before I could place my foot on the ground again…everyone in the hall was clapping and hooting…

“we were moving our ass on this floor like what…since 2 hours and you guys came from nowhere danced only for 2 minutes and stole the whole evening” …that was the only line we heard from every direction…and now we are looking forward to my cousin’s wedding, where once again we would try to create another awesome flash…

Daily Prompt: Never Gonna Give You Up

Smoking  & Drinking is one habit I just can’t stand…I hate it so much that I can slap the opposite person immediately…Everybody knows that smoking kills but still people smokes…why…???

I got promotion, lets drink…I am getting married, lets drink…I am going to be a Daddy, lets drink…He ditched me, I need a drink…I need a ten minute break yaar, I need to bum smoke…gosh I am feeling so low, chal weed maar ke aate hai…

Usually smoking and drinking goes hand in hand…happy or sad…drinking and smoking is the only solution… Smokers & Drinkers say that it gives them different kind of pleasure…it gives them high…

HIGH…seriously, to celebrate something you need to be high…I don’t think so…

For feeling high, you don’t need to smoke or drink, you just need to live that moment…and pain itself is such a strong drug that you don’t need any drink or weed to increase it…

One of my friend was a chain smoker, but she quit smoking because of me…I never used to allow her in my home…I know I can’t change everyone but there’s time and place for everything…don’t smoke in public places…don’t drink in front of your kids and family…at least maintain the social decorum…

“nashe ke liye sharab ya cigarette ki jarurat nahi hoti, kyunki jeet ki khushi kisi nashe se kam nahi hoti… aur agar aap dukhi ho to wo gham kisi nashe se kam nahi hota”  

Stop Judging…Will you…???

“Papa, Symbiosis aur XLRI se call aa gaya hai” (Papa, I have got a call from Symbiosis and XLRI)

“mmhmm…SP Jain aur NMIMS ka kya hua” (What about SP Jain and NMIMS?)

“unki list abhi tak nikali nahi hai, next week tak  aa  jayegi” (They haven’t released their list yet, I guess it will come out by next week)

“mmhmm….aur kisi college ke forms bhare ki nahi” (have you filled the forms of other colleges)

Nowadays, in India every other student wants to go for MBA (Masters of Business Administration). If you don’t have MBA degree on your Resume, then I am Sorry…you are good for nothing…well that’s how most of the people and companies think here…I am not against MBA, in fact I have one too in my  kitty, but I am against its Selection Process…

To begin with, students who want to pursue MBA have to appear for Entrance Exams.  Most of the renowned colleges conduct their own Exams, as soon as results are out…based on the cut-off, as per their scores students start expecting calls… head to the second step in Selection Process that is Group Discussion(GD) and then Personal Interview(PI) …finally  you wait for the final list, either you are  on the list, and do party all night… or better luck next time…

Now with so called coaching classes majority of the students do well in GDPI, still they don’t get their names on the list…here comes the real trouble…what shall I do now???…Earlier, competition was not so tough, now it’s getting harder and harder. If we sum up all the seats of best colleges in India, it would be approximately around 8000 to 10000…and number of candidates is in lakhs…I am sure you can understand the rat race situation out here.

The most difficult phase of the whole process is cracking exam, but majority of the colleges gives only 30 to 40 percent weight age to these exams…around 10 percent weight age to past academic record and 50 percent weight age  to GDPI…Now,  you did great in your exam,  performed well in GDPI…then what went wrong that your name is not on the list…this question  hangs in air for long time…kills you every moment, let ones moral down….I tried to look for the answer everywhere,  double checked with result…. replay whole GDPI process again and again…still nothing to note…then  got a call from a friend that she got admission in Symbiosis, how ?…God knows…I was trying very hard to understand what went wrong…I did better than her in GDPI, scored more than her, still she is on the list I am not…

After few days, I was again going through all of this shit…then it clicked to me that my past academic records are not as good as hers…that was the only reason I didn’t get admission in most of the Top B Schools (MBA Colleges) in India…Instead of feeling bad about my grades, I was infuriating from inside…Just because I didn’t score well in 10th and 12th …I don’t deserve to study in best colleges of India…that’s not fair. Why one should be reminded of a mistake whole life? Why one shall be abstained from the good, opportunities wanted most?  Why one shall not be judged for the past but for present?

Every year majority of students doesn’t get admission because of their past academic records…but is it really fair..??? How could you even decide that any XYZ student who did well in 10th or 12th or in Graduation is the only deserving candidate. And here by well… I mean student is supposed to have above 90+ in every academic exam he has ever given. Now that’s a total crap…many students never get serious about their studies until they are in 12th… they don’t even have proper career counselling by then…and colleges are for fun…

In India, every other parent wants their kids to study hard and score above 90+ not only in school but in college too…but how could you be so sure that only a 90+ student can deliver you the best in life…we have many examples in history like Edison & Einstein, who were never 90+ in their studies…but they changed the entire history of human existence…There are many students who become serious about their career only later in life and that’s fine…because childhood is all about playing and eating whereas teenage life is all about flying high, falling in love, trying their best to look beautiful and sexy…and college life is all about making mistakes, learning from those mistakes, getting confused about their career, what shall I do MBA or M TECH or shall I do some job or shall I start my own business…GOSH…Why am I so confused ???

I am sure if at all these colleges and their top management  provide same kind of atmosphere and platform to  non 90+ students…they will deliver you the same and in some cases better than the 90+ lot…any student’s score card never tells you about his caliber. Rather than dividing the students in 90+ and non 90+ categories…it would be better to improvise more and more Institutes that can provide equal opportunities of exposure and learning…Anyone’s scores can never assure you about his knowledge and skills…by studying hard anyone can have 90+ and by practicing hard anyone can polish his/her skills…but knowledge is something beyond that…

I have been through this crap, I will not say that I was dumb but I was never comfortable with this number game…but with time I got the right platform…it helped me in taking the right decisions in life…I don’t have any regrets, I know I could have done better…but I guess my being an average student helped me in becoming better person in life…I have stopped judging people on bases of their careers, degrees, salary slips… For me, any Tom, Dick & Harry can acquire 90+…but at the end…one’s final decisions will outsmart ones in life…

That’s Aarya signing off for today…

Best Surprise Ever…

I have met my hubby ten years ago…at that time we were ‘just friends’…alright, fine we were more than ‘just friends’ but we were not seriously serious about each other and getting married was totally out of question…but we were and still are like those girlfriends & boyfriends…everybody would love to have in their life…He is always like fire and I am always like desire…magical and musical are the two words that compliments us perfectly….

In these past ten years, he has given me gifts that every girl dreams of…flowers that are next to impossible to count…romantic dinners and getaway that are to die for…in short he has done everything that is written in Mills & Boon or any other romantic novel. But this year he has gifted me something that I have never ever expected even in my wildest dream…we got married two years ago…and yesterday, we celebrated our 2nd Marriage Anniversary with our family…

Few days ago, we went out to an Aquarium & Reptile Store, to check out fishes and turtles for our sweet home…because of my paternal & maternal families love for pets, my childhood was surrounded with different kind of animals…and due to that I always wanted to have my own pet someday…hubby has said no to a dog…so I decided to go with turtle…But we are about to move to a  different place…so, we dropped the idea of having any turtle for the time being…

As we are about to shift, I asked him not to do anything lavish this year, and for a change he listened to me…so I was waiting for him to come home, it was 11:45 pm…my temper was going high with every tick of the second hand…and the minute my anger was about to burst…the doorbell rang, I opened it quickly… he was standing with my younger brother…I headed straight to the kitchen to arrange something for their grumbling tummies…as soon as I was done I turned to bedroom to grab some sleep which was far far away…

And guess what, my bedroom  was locked from inside…that was not helping my temper at all…and my lovely brother was smiling and enjoying the show…within 5 minutes the door was opened, it was dark inside…I switched on the light,  gave a hard look to my hubby…and the next thing I saw was a huge red card lying on my bed…on top of that was a huge bunch of red and white roses… with a big acrylic box…I looked at the box for a long time…trying to understand why on the earth he has given me this acrylic box(I already have a beautiful makeup box), as I moved closer toward the bed…I noticed that there was something very small exactly in the middle of the box…OMG…… it was, my one and half month old…….sweet baby turtle…swimming in the middle of the box…I was humping and jumping all over my bed, because it was the best and most unexpected surprise…I have ever got from him…he has given me everything that every other girl would love to have…but a baby turtle is the one that I could have never imagined…

On that note, I would really like to  ‘THANK YOU’  my husband…for making this moment the most unforgettable moment of our life…In ten years, we have mountains of beautiful memories…but nothing in the world can beat this… not even a diamond ring. So, once again thank you so much my love…for making it so beautiful this year…I hope this baby turtle remains with us for rest of our life…may he brings lots of happiness and prosperity in our life…

These are the words of one of my best friend…I thought I should share this beautiful story with everyone…and I really wish them loads of good luck with their new baby turtle…whose name is yet to be decided…
