Dead end ahead?


Long ago, a bunch of young minds rowed a seed. They were very excited at the beginning. In the process of taking care so that the seed germinates; they exchanged ideas and shared their experiences of joy and sorrow. The seed transformed into a healthy sapling, thanks to the contributions from the young minds.

Over time, the young fellas moved apart. Nevertheless, they still cared for the sapling. There was always somebody to look after and thus the sapling grew into a small tree giving delight to the young bunch and also to strangers.

Inevitably, the young bunch grew up and were caught in the intricacies of life. Priorities changed and the small tree became a neglected object. Sometimes though, it was remembered especially on anniversaries and special days.

At present the bunch randomly visits the full-grown tree and takes a break in the cool shade of the tree. Many birds and stranger humans have become it's regular visitors.

The neglect though may kill the tree eventually. The tree is on it's way to a slow death unless it gets back the love and affection of it's human friends. Will it survive?

I don't know, I really don't know.

I remember a time when I would visit the tree every morning before work. But as time passes, I find myself dropping by maybe once a week or even bi-weekly!

I come to work early in the morning and go back late in the evening (just eating something before I go to sleep).

The present apathy (displayed by me and most of us) is disconcerting! I don't know how re-ignite that flame!

Love,

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

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)

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
