Julie and Julia

Julie and Julia:

The Julia child project

They say that Julia child wasn’t always Julia child. There was a learning phase you see.And “see” was what precisely what we did in the fabulous movie .

Nobody here but sleepless students.

I dedicate this blog towards all the thousands and hundreds of sleepless children around India braving the mad winter cold and preparing for competitive examinations.

My project  is simple(only if I had a calendar next to the screen while I write this(note this when I actually design a webpage for it.)

Aim :30 days and 3000 questions.

The contender: A beautiful girl by day and a voracious reader by night.

Aim to do all the goddamn questions of gate 2014 and do it well..statin tonite with DE

Hi Mr Sharma,

Your book ,who will cry when you die  has been on my to reading  list for a long time now, but couldn’t actually ever  get the chance to read it..in all honesty I felt that the is not for me …a 21 yr old to be precise. You see, the aspect of death and beyond doesn’t figure into my top priorities currently… (the fact that whatever anyone does after I die seems the least of my concerns right now).or at least that’s how I felt..

Recent developments in my life (or the lack of it made me )consider the bigger plans of life and as I stood in side a bookshop (a temple for me in all respect.) I sought your book Mega living..but this one caught my eye.. and call it morbid feeling or not..the word “die “that initially repulsed me now .. I can’t explain it..

Anyways on pure impulse (coupled with  the unavoidable smirking eyes of my dear friend)I picked it up..and have challenged myself to “do” any one thing every week from your book this month AND write about it to you..

That said and done, this commitment like this and many other may follow suit with the others to the dustbin, hence I forced myself to write to you(after reading your empathetic “please do write to me” followed by your “I will do my very best to respond”  ..Honestly I don’t expect you to respond..(or read this entire stuff…its turning out longer than I expected) . It’s understandable if you aren’t able to..and well..writing to you is a part of my personal agenda to keep me on track and not deviate and actually have something meaningful in the end..

Yours sincerely,

  1. 🙂

PS am a huge fan and hope you continue writing amazing books in future too.Wishing you great health and prosperity.

The drawbacks of being Smart

hi readers, if you think youll get an article of “oh looook iam sooo smart and others are soo duuumb (sic) Then u could not have been more mistaken.

Its a genuine prob that all of us “in our too smart moments” go thru…

so you think you are a smart ass?huh? well i think i am :P(no pun intented..).but i am soo smart and sooo convincing that i end up applying illutions on myself.lull myself into believing that this is achievable.then go off to sleep.being actually smart most of us manage to finish off the work in time:when we manage to wake up . but thatjust adds to our initial idea of being smart,and end up following the same loop again.untill we actually meet a disaster .This finale may seem like a solution to the loop,but more like anti climax when we start believing that we are not really that smart.And when we stop believing ourselvs…there is help on this earth that can restore our previous glory.

is there a way to balance it out?
