To my diary: Stone-walled synopsis

Each year has some milestone events in everyone’s lives, which we cherish a lot. Stepping into the stone-walled campus of IIM Bangalore was the most significant milestone for me. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

IIM Bangalore has one of the most beautiful campuses in India, with greenery all around. It was designed by the celebrated architect B V Doshi, who received the 2018 Pritzker Prize.

The temperature here is perfect throughout the year, and the city of Bangalore adds to its sheen. IIM Bangalore is one of the most inclusive campuses with almost all parts of the campus being easily accessible to everyone. The beauty of the campus is mesmerizing, and one will easily fall in love with it.

My life at IIM Bangalore has been like a memorable fast-paced roller coaster ride. I literally did everything in my first month of IIMB; every single thing that I had done before joining IIMB, i.e., my entire life activities. There were near-instantaneous times of marvelous epiphanies that whatever I had done so far was so little, yet so significant. IIM Bangalore makes you realize the importance of your life and provides you with enormous opportunities to gain new skills every day. Living in hostels again, having amazing friends and seniors, excellent facilities, supportive professors, thrilling events, fests and celebrations, L square parties, project night outs, networking and bonding, experiences with startups, VCs, entrepreneurs, summer placements and some more parties (πŸ˜›) are some of the mind-blowing memories in this short journey of 7 months. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the education and the study hours too.

Life is all about choices. At IIMB, you are free to make your own choices. You even get to chose subjects of your preference from the third term itself, which is something unique to IIM Bangalore. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That’s what IIMB will teach you. There will be times when it will get insanely hard, and you might start doubting yourself. When going gets tough, the tough gets going. So never have a scintilla of doubt in your heart, ever! The support system of friends and seniors at IIMB will always be there for you. Hence, you will never be alone and IIMB will be like a family away from home.

There is so much to explore – from the shards of stars to the secrets of the seabeds. One can either dream about it or wake up and do something about it. So, Let’s do it. The Time is Now!

Thus Rise !

Innocents stay muted,
Their honour amputed.

We stay low,
As the bombs around us blow.

The takers never turn into givers,
That’s how inequality prolifers.

The shy is considered to be weak,
But light never fails to spread through a creak.

It’s a conjecture of those fools,
Who use emotions as their tools.

None can control the tides of time,
Weakness can be moulded into strength sublime.

Thus rise for it’s not the horizon you desire,
But the limitless sky that awaits your fire.

My first day at IIM Bangalore

Sweeping us into ecstacy,
This day finally dawned.
Finding ourselves engulfed,
In the seventh heaven and beyond.

May be a little lost,
Like an early morning frost.
But not so fragile we stand,
Rushed by memories of journey that spanned.

The wall’s exhilaration couldn’t even subside,
The green campus got our eyes open wide.
Mother nature adorning the Pritzker’s design,
Pleasure to the eyes and soul, manifestation of divine.

The names finally got their faces,
The many Hi-Hellos at all the places.
The euphoria never seems to cease,
With a delightful climate and pleasant breeze.

This place is undoubtedly the place to be,
A home sweet home and a family to be.
Day must give way to the night, but not today,
For it’s a dawn that shall never fail, we pray.

Tattoo Art

Hello ! Hope that everyone is having a good day!

I wanted to share some of my attempts on making tattoo art. I realised that I can make tattoos during my college days, when I ‘accidentally’ made a tattoo on one of my friend’s hand (he was popular). It was appreciated by every fascinated onlooker.

I was later approached by many others, who were participating in various fashion events, to help them stand out from the crowd.

Well here are some:

But where is she?

Her infectious smile makes a myriad of flowers dance merrily round the clock,
Her cheerful laugh is like an addictive music of waves hitting the rock.
Her mirthful nature obliterates the darkness of a heart forlorn,
A glimpse of her harbingers an unrivalled freshness of dawn.
She is an epitome of fortitude that cannot be breached,
She is a castle of bravado that can never be seiged.
Veiling herself by an unperturbed and immaculate volition,
Har scintillating cavernous eyes are epithets of her ambition.
And Intrepid mind adorns her like an impeccable Tiara,
Spreading her gusto she enriches the surroundings with her aura.
A flabbergasting beauty cradling an ethereal heart,
She is my “Wonder woman” to which her pristine figure impart.
She is like a fresh and cozy wind that soothes the cheeks,
Blowing through her hairs, to get her aroma, the wind sneaks.
She is a priceless gem, the seven kingdoms are in search for,
And for me, she is all the good reasons worth dying for.
But where is she!?!?

Dreaming about someone special, especially when there isn’t one, is the past time job of every person out there.. Where is the prince charming? Where is my Snow white? The unanswered question that lingers around like an unsolved mystery. Our unanswered prayers may get answered but finding the right answer to this one question is tough!!

So, let us not feel bad.. Let us close our eyes and see!! I hope this poem gave us a glimpse if not the answer!!πŸ˜›

My Moonlight Fantasy πŸŒ’

Walking under the moonlight I looked at the moon,
With a hope that I shall meet someone pretty, soon.
Hope to see a face that has a radiant glow,
And the eyes that can make the world go slow.
The delicate eyelids covering those precious gems,
Hiding inside them the depth from where the truth begins.
Dazzled and spellbound by the silvery shine,
For the teeth that sparkle with the smile so divine.
Make no haste although the winter may fall,
For her luxuriant hair are the source of warmth.
An aroma that can fill someone with joy and zeal,
Bestowing upon me her humbleness which none can steal.
The rosy lips or perhaps the lips of rose,
Garnishing over the yummy cake is a cherry nose.
The emptiness deep down is now ceasing to grow,
For the boulevard has finally begin to glow.
The face as white as snow with a tinge of crimson,
Wears the serenity of a sunset below horizon.
A smile so beautiful that no flower can match,
It comes with delicacy and makes my day in a snatch.
An enthralling gaze of those mesmerizing beautiful eyes,
And the miraculous blink makes my heart skip beat twice.
The golden voice always ring a welcome note,
The cuckoo bird envies of u for such a clean throat.
The moon is still there staring at the twinkling star,
But the moonlight found you adorned in the most beautiful avatar.
For no star can shine or twinkle as bright as you,
And no light can make the world sparkle the way you do.. 😊

Sometimes the beautiful nature nudges us in a world of fantasy. We then begin to dream of someone who not only matches the beauty of the nature but supercedes it. A spectacularly gorgeous person whose allure is gilded when juxtaposed to nature. I hope that the readers, through this poem, smile while reliving their fantasies.
