Music Discovered!


I was one of those rare human species in whose life music had zero or epsilon existence. I had no choice or taste. As long as anything bearable was being played i could hear it. Off course, I had some favourite songs but they were very limited.
Notice the past tense in the last para. By the grace of God, present is no more the same.
I have now been taken over by the power of music. I love listening songs now. How did it happen? I don’t know. But i do know that i now know the importance, the power and the beauty of the notes. To get lost in a soothing music, to play a song repeatedly, to bang your head to death to some rock song, to sway on a melody, the tapping of feet by themselves on a dance number….it was all alien to me a little time ago. Now, I have one more thing to appreciate in life. And after this realization, I always regret taking so much time to visit the premises of the temple of music.

Music is the absolute destresser…!

Current Playlist features : Beatles, Jethro Tull, Elvis Presley, Gangster, Arth & Celine Dion

Celine.

Wireless charging!


Physics finds a new way to recharge cell phones and laptops and other gadgets. Only a conception till now but the technology can be extremely useful in the future if it can  be implemented properly.

Check out the following article :

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6129460.stm

a snippet:

US researchers have outlined a relatively simple system that could deliver power to devices such as laptop computers or MP3 players without wires.

The concept exploits century-old physics and could work over distances of many metres, the researchers said.

Although the team has not built and tested a system, computer models and mathematics suggest it will work. “And because we’re physicists we asked, ‘what kind of physical phenomenon can we use to do this wire-less energy transfer?’.”

Energy trap

The answer the team came up with was “resonance”, a phenomenon that causes an object to vibrate when energy of a certain frequency is applied.

 “There are a number of other aspects that need to be addressed to ensure efficient conversion of power to a form useful to input to devices.”

My heart will go on!


Download the song  “My Heart Will go on” by Celine Dion! and listen to it

every bit as touching as the movie and sometimes even more. Excellent voice and equally marvellous music composition.

lyrics :

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we’re one

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we’ll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

There is some love that will not go away

You’re here, there’s nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

November!


This month has brought a lot of good things with itself  : First, the CCC ..my beloved late night coffee house in the campus. Life was incomplete without it all the while it was closed. Then it has also brought the sweet cold , the night and morning chills and the hot afternoons, in hindi which we call “gulabi gulabi si thand”. It has also taken away the insects who used to rampage my room every evening and other such small-but-sweet-things-of-life . But most importantly, it has brought a freshness and a wind of change for me..somehow.! I know not why the feeling of excitement comes or  how the rejuvenation has occured! but i LOOOVVE it!

Along with the package has also come a ban on Orkut but i could not have cared lesser about it. DC++ has been restored and I am more than happy for that. Tried to solve a few puzzles today and whoa…i need serious practice if i want to solve puzzles in the future!. Man, they are now beyond me!

Have not watched a single movie in a looong time and know what..i don’t feel the need to. Guess i have overcome my movie mania for the while 🙂 .

Its all goody goody and i am just loving life.

Cheers!

Cocaine!



If you wanna hang out youve got to take her out; cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground; cocaine.
She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie; cocaine.

If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues; cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run; cocaine.
She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie; cocaine.

If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on; cocaine.
Dont forget this fact, you cant get it back; cocaine.
She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie; cocaine.

She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie; cocaine.

This song by Eric Clapton is the most awesome song i am hearing these days! Just play it and sing along and you feel intoxicated! There is something in it which makes me lose myself. Slow music, wordings, the mood, the voice…everything just rocks!

Please listen to it ..at least once !

The Simple Pleasures of Life!


 I believe in taking full advantage of the simple pleasures of life. I do not wait for a big party to happen to be happy and have fun. I might be just as happy without a party compensated by a daily dose of small happinesses. Convention has it otherwise i guess because it was a matter of great surprise for many that I spent half an hour to go and check the coffee in the newly opened CCC. For me, it was a blissful moment which i had not entirely achieved even during the last 4 days of Antaragni!

I wonder whats the harm if you spoil yourself once in a while by petty things like buying a good pen or a chocolate or taking a walk alone or like the one above. For me these things act as refreshers.

I have realized that sometimes things might go your way and many a times they may not but you always live through it. So why not feel good about not having the worse situations rather that fearing about them and living in constant tension.

For me, Blogging also is one such small pack of fun!

Message of the day : enjoy everyone, be Happy!!

S.T. Coleridge


” What is Life ? “

Resembles Life what once was held of Light,
Too ample in itself for human sight ?

An absolute Self–an element ungrounded–
All, that we see, all colours of all shade

[spacer]By encroach of darkness made ?–

Is very life by consciousness unbounded ?
And all the thoughts, pains, joys of mortal breath,
A war-embrace of wrestling Life and Death ?

“Reason”

 

… Finally, what is Reason ? You have often asked me ; and this is my answer :–

Whene’er the mist, that stands ‘twixt God and thee,
Sublimates to a pure transparency,
That intercepts no light and adds no stain–
There Reason is, and then begins her reign ! But alas! ———————————————————————————

 

 

 

 

These two poems are written by S.T. Coleridge of the “The Rime of Ancient Mariner” and “Kubla Khan” fame. These two are some small poems of his but equally beautiful. Especially “what is life” was an amazing one and entrapped me in its beauty. I have been a Coleridge fan since i read “Ancient Mariner” in class 9 or 10 but reading more of him has been a treat for the soul. It is weird to know that he did many of his writings while under the influence of opium but then geniues have their shares of whims and fancies always!
