Winds of change

All of us must have been, at some time or the other, overwhelmed by the scenes of under-development in our society. It makes us think and react. It angers us to be judgmental of the apathy of governments/departments/offices/agencies. We have conversations to be critical of the situations giving rise to such low points in our society. We argue and debate solutions to the problems, though we may not be experts in the particular domain. The problems may in fact require a common sense solution with guidance from an expert group, isn't it !!

All of us think of ways to get rid of the many problems of our society; be it education, poverty, health, human rights etceteras. When our discussion ends, we move onto the next discussion on some other day about another problem prevalent in our society. This is also an important part of our society, of our democracy. We must be aware of the things happening around us and also question things which are wrong. When we discuss and formulate our raw ideas, the next step can be to implement them to bring about a positive social change.

One of my friends from office (Abhinandan Verma) has been, along with his friends and other collaborators, working for a good cause in Orissa. They have been able to start a school in Kanpur village (Mayurbhanj district) for the kids of economically under-privileged people in the adjoining areas. They have started the team as 'Educate to Empower', (E2E) basically working as 'Educational Consultants'. They collaborate with the donors, other NGOs and the local community to sustain the initiative and provide 'effective and affordable' education to the children.

It is very commendable of their efforts to bring about a good change in our society. You can read more about them from the link below.
Let this post in some way bring to light efforts of the E2E change agents and may be willing agencies/individuals step forward for any assistance or collaboration. Their initiative can also be an excellent example of people like us trying and bringing about winds of change.
Cheers to the E2E folks.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
