Desired. Waited. Achieved.

30th Oct, 2013. A long wait ended. A goal achieved and a goal added to life. Goal to approach the next step of the ladder. To be a better human being. A better IBMer!

Lets start with the things this post is not. Its not a success story. Its not a success guide. This is a chain of events put together. Fragments of my life, how I got depressed after TCS, how I realized that it was actually a lesson, and how I accepted the fact that I have got control over many things, but I keep cribbing about things on which I have no control, which is a waste of time and energy.

We shall overcome!

‘Scared’, we all are in our different ways. But is it worth being scared? Is it worth wasting your valuable time all for a fear of ‘something’ or ‘someone’, or most commonly ‘splitting from your dream’? He is scared that he might not get into a good job. She is scared because she might not get a good husband. The kid is scared because his new toy may break. Trepid is the word which can be used to define many of us.

The Countdown has begun!

“Baajlo tomar alor benu,
matlo re bhubon..”

[English translation: Goddess Durga is coming to earth and that initiated happiness all around it.]

‘She’ is at the doorsteps. ‘Maa durga’ (Goddess Durga) is coming to her home from in-laws. The countdown has begun! With less than 13 days remaining, the preparation reached the apex of thousands anticipation. Women are busy with parlours-markets-and-so-on-list, husbands busy paying (:P), teenagers busy planning, and photographers are busy clicking.

Here goes few clicks caught by my lens.

“Preparation on”

“Man behind the happiness”

While photo-shooting yesterday, I met a guy. A very simple one with mud in his hand, and few 10 rs/- notes in his pocket. They are the idol-artists, working night after nights giving perfection to the shape of the idols. In my words, they are the real architect of happiness, that we enjoy.

“The countdown has begun”

Within 7 days, the evergreen voice of Birendra Krishna Bhadra will inaugurate “Debipokko” and then it will just be 6 more days to go.
