I always wondered that how do people get lost in nostalgia until I had to search my Gmail’s inbox and found innumerable, uncountable e-mail with just one subject. No wonder how many times, I would have thought of having a college life filled with not just sprinkled but fully spread cheese, I would often be entangled in a messy cheese cake. Those slices, would rarely, not be accompanied by the phrase, ‘Yahan, kuch nhi ho skta‘ and we would lament like a flock of sheep ‘Ye kahan fass gye hain hm‘.

There isn’t a moment, I go wondering for anything else except your thought. I just can’t envisage how life can make you fall for things that aren’t just pretty, but something that deems to fit in an imagination of a wonderful world. You are the story that I constantly tell myself, you are the dream that I live through. I don’t know how things will move on a road that is otherwise very muddy and ungravelled. Let’s sit aside and talk for sometime. We can talk to the moon and still be giggling at the nuances of the world.
I had applied for the National Sustainability Case Challenge and I got an e-mail with the subject – ‘You have been shortlisted’.
I was happy at the first place. I didn’t read the mail instantly. After an hour, I thought of reading it to know what I have to do ahead. The mail read out that the teams have been shortlisted by a distinguished jury and the names of the shortlisted candidates are attached in the excel sheet.
I didn’t open the sheet instantly. With a curiosity to find other people who have been shortlisted; I opened the excel sheet and to my horror and surprise, I didn’t find my name there.
Since, I had received the e-mail with the subject – ‘You have been shortlisted’, I replied to the mail enquiring about it. Soon, I got a reply which said, ‘Mail has been sent to every participant, only the shortlisted names are in the excel sheet’.
Suddenly, I became furious. I mailed them again. ‘My presentation was well researched. Can you share the presentation of the shortlisted teams with me?’ I opened the excel sheet and started ranting, ‘How this team can be selected?’ ‘The world is unjust’.
I literally became upset for half an hour at least. After that, I realised, how stupid I’m been. Why I wasn’t accepting my rejection / failure with humility?
As I am writing this answer after 80 minutes of the incident, I have started to get a feeling that I might have completely misunderstood Background Research theory and had presented something irrelevant in the presentation.
No matter. Loosing hurts. But accepting it and moving on with firm determination is the best thing. Isn’t it?
I have decided to give words to the chaos perturbing me not because I feel at home doing this but essentially for a reason to come back and sail through these words, not presumably after years but just months after. It’s quite amazing (considering the age I’m passing through), how the dynamics of thoughts keeps fluttering. What seemed indispensable at a time holds little significance today!
I was never perplexed and bewildered like this ever before, as I’m these days. Just a few months ago, and my thoughts were sailing all smooth and I dreamed of a life; like many other else. And then, as they say, few things just happen at the right time and at the right place and one such was in the month of May and June, when I did an internship on Backend Development in Gurgaon.

हुमेंस ऑफ़ न्यू यॉर्क को तो सबने सुन रखा होगा, लेकिन में ब्रैंडन को नहीं जानता था। सचमुच नहीं जानता था। लेकिन किसी का लाल माइक ले कर, समाज के ऐसे तबको की कहानियों को टेलेविज़न स्क्रीन पे लाना और उसे बेहद ही सहज और अलग तरीके से बताना, मुझे प्रवावित कर गया था। मुझे शायद ये बात समझ आने लगी थी की हर सुपर हीरो इंस्टाग्राम के फ़िल्टर और टेलेविज़न के स्क्रीन से नहीं दिखता, हमारे और आपके आसपास अनगिनत, असंख्यक सुपरहीरो रहते हैं जो तमाम मुश्किलातों के बाद भी हर चीज़ से लड़ रहे होते हैं।

The ‘Master Slave’ society which is sublimely called as Patriarchy has historically manifested itself in the social, economic, legal and political organisations of many culture. Both the present and the past is a reminder that most cultures throughout the world have been patriarchal and this inevitable realism has quite often lead patriarchy to portray men as the perpetrator and women as the victim beside flaunting and stereotyping men as a symbol of transcendent strength and protector and women as an undisputed emblem of weakness and fragility.
