I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality… I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. “

God”, I said. “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?” His answer surprised me… “Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?” “Yes”, I replied. “When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water.The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

Students, let me first congratulate you on your amazing performance this year. It’s unbelievable that so many students from city Patiala (and region around) have made it to top few thousands in the world’s most competitive undergraduate examination – IIT JEE.
Heartiest Congratulations to you all and we wish you very best of luck for your future.

Hello everyone…

It’s an attempt to answer this common query of what should be the ideal time to study!!

Well, one thing is for sure that we just can not have a generalized study approach for everyone to follow. Individuals have their own unique learning patterns and body clocks which every individual should respect.

You are at a stage where you can mold yourself (body and mind) to follow a certain study pattern to some extent…Human body, in general, follows Darwin’s Laws (in a way) and finds a best fit or adapts itself to the situation it is exposed to over a prolonged period of time. It is important to note here that the situation might also be detrimental to the growth or health of the body, still it gets used to it. Common examples of the situation being addiction to alcohol and nicotine.

Hi all…

I write all this as we sit back in our homes, safe, a bit distracted from our usual tasks, glued to TV, numb…unable to decide how should we react. Should we hate, but whom? Should we fight, but exactly whom? Should we at all care, its not us or ours who died, its not anyone of us who killed!

But if we come to think of it, something of us certainly has been compromised – our freedom.

Imagine having to think twice before going out, imagine being nervous about our near and dear ones when they are out. Imagine having the terrifying feeling of being watched and being aimed at every time we make a move. Imagine…ahh, we don’t have to exert our minds to imagine, not any more…these feelings are getting real!

It’s like getting out to work with thick black cloud cover which can burst into heavy shower anytime, hoping that it will not, at least, not when we are out, and even if it does, the drops somehow will not fall on us. Just that the drops in this case are live bullets!

But why these clouds, what Sun is it that is firing its heat resulting into its formation from droplets of youth, youth that had been pure earlier. This Sun is not natural, we humans have created it. It’s also not solid, exactly like the Sun of gases we all know.

It’s a Sun made up of thoughts, extremely powerful and intense thoughts of hatred… This Sun shines every where, everyday, and even if we don’t believe it…Yes, within us!

Take a break from your Tatva Tutorials and take a glimpse into the future…

Chappals, Cows and Keedas: Life at IIT-B

Life at IITB is very very different. First, the distances. I hadn’t imagined 200 hectares could be so large. The departments are 10 to 15 minutes walk away, the gate 20 min, library 10 min, etc.

The Institute campus at Powai is situated in picturesque surroundings with Vihar and Powai lake on either side and green hills strewn in between. An added attraction is the varied, colourful and noisy night life in the form of insects. Another things that hits you immediately on entering IIT are the cows (I mean the four legged ones). Can easily be located around the campus, with a beatific expression on their faces as they ruminate about the world and leave their offerings behind. On coming to IIT and enquiring about ragging we were told “There is no ragging in IIT and the moon is made of cheese”. Now I strongly subscribe to the theory of Extra Terrestrial Life. People are very lively and the days are just packed. Conversations are carried out mainly in slang and abbreviations : Insti, LT (Lecture theatre), Convo (Convocation Hall), CC (Computer Center), etc and a combination of words which have no resemblance to any living language.
