Hold my hand and take me with you……






You are earth an art piece, an exclusive art piece which god made with love, care, tenderness you are so dynamic that your dynamism keep me alive.
I, you & we are just a part of the whole creativity of god & I have learned to survive with your dynamism.
Thousands of assumption about you, thousands of theorems on you, thousands evidence of your existence & thousand reasons on your extension.
I am blessed with one life to express my beautiful thoughts for your everlasting beauty. You dipped in so many colors, shades which no one can paint, your beauty is charismatic which gives me fresh hope, new desire, peace & satisfaction. You hold our hands when we are depressed, you dance with us when we are happy, you are a mother who loves us more then we love you, you care for us, then why have you kept me so far away form your self. Why we need holidays, vacations to come to meet you in deep woods or on a hilltop.

Why can’t you stay with us.
Ohh my child its not me, its you who is far away from me.

I was there with you all the time, I was there along with you, but you wanted playgrounds so I gave you the space to play.
You wanted wider roads to drive faster & avoid traffic jams for which I scarified my life.
I gave you space for shopping malls & Cineplex’s so that you can enjoy with yourfriends.

But Still I love you more than you love me.

Don’t come to me, call me near to you. Because if you will come to me you will set my boundaries far from human life, you can never live with me unless you call me near to you.

I want to live with you, I want to live in your home, I want to walk with you along the roadside, I want to be with you.

Hold my hand and take me with you……



Sitting in the office after lunch time




Sitting in the office after lunch time, thinking of what I gained, what I have what I will loose, I feel worried and insecured. Why worried and insured is this the question or the answer.

Even I don’t know, if this is a question then what is the answer and if this is an answer then what is the question?

But I feel, the most significant is to find the cause for this verbosity and insecurity.

Before finding the reason, one must ignite the inner flame of truth, as said ’Truth is bitter’

But why? Now again there is a reason.

We the people, you, me and we are never ready to accept the truth, thats why we feel it biter. Now if you can feel the flames inside, you should know what is truth ‘Is it some thing we don’t want to say or listen’, because we want to make thing simple, not for ourselves but for others. But at heart the simplicity is getting more complicated, Its very difficult to say the truth but once you said truth it will oil the internal lamp, although you will not feel happy at that particular instance but later it will be the source of happiness which will get more and more brighter. Its not as difficult as listening the truth. Listening truth is courageous and accepting it is even more courageous.

Now the reason why we speak, listen and accept lie is that we are afraid of others and ourselves. If we lying to some one it means that we are afraid of the person to whom we are lying and if we are listening, it means we are afraid of ourselves, but we are not afraid of the supreme power the GOD.

We are afraid because we have expectations from others. We want to be good human being, genteel in front of other, we want others to praise us, respect us but that respect which we gained through our lies by betraying others is as fake as our words, its notrespect but its something which will keep us realizing that we lied we are not true to ourselves. If we are not true to ourselves it means we can not be true to anyone, those can be our family, friend, relatives.

If we stop expecting from God, parents, friends and society we will never feel

Burdened of answers and questions which grows like weeds in our brain. Like the weeds in the crop absorbs all the nutrients similarly these expectations corrupt our thoughts, vision and we feel more and more frustrated & depressed.

What should be a Man’s Mission in his Life?

A child is born, he has no understanding for life, he doesn’t know how long the day is. How many days are there in a week, how many weeks make a month and months a year? He lives in his own world. He is not worried about present, future and not concerned about the past. But his parents know what does the child wants, when he is hungry.

They take care of every thing. They don’t teach him how to walk but always hold his hands when he needs it. The child does not know what is good what is bad but the parents know. He don’t know what to eat, but parents know what to feed him and if a child do something wrong although he is punished he is sill accepted with all love, tenderness and delight, forgiving his deeds. 1-2 year child does not know what to demand from parents, but parents provide him what ever is necessary for him, what ever is required. When he grows he start demanding, at that time parents do provide him what is required and what is necessary. Similarly when he grew up he understands his family and his requirement, his demand changes which her think his parents can afford. And when he grew up he stops demanding from his parents and starts earning for them.

Similar is the Man he have no idea how long he is gone live, what will happen tomorrow or even the very next hour. Now think your self a child and GOD the parents.

He wants you to walk, and he will hold your hand when you really need it.

Very similar to the parent and child relation is our relation ship with GOD. He gives us every thing what is required by us, we should also like a grown up child should only ask for what we deserve and in our later stages of life we should stop asking from god, but should thank him that he had made us capable of getting things on our own. The capability of getting things on our own can be different from one person to other. In Hinduism it’s the karma theory. ”But what is it really what the real karma is ?” What is good, what is bad, what is god what is evil.

So a man’s mission in life should be to leave his worries, should believe what is righteous and do what is right. His motive should to work honestly so that he could make himself capable of feedings others.



Trip to Shimla-kufri.


Trip to Shimla-kufri.

We started our journey from Ludhiana. Ludhiana is a city and amunicipal corporation in Ludhiana district in the Indian state of Punjab. It is the largest city in Punjab, with an estimated population of 25 laces. The population increases substantially during the crop harvesting season due to immigration of laborers from states likeUttar Pradesh, Bihar and Delhi. It has an area of about 310 km². The city stands on the Sutlej River's old bank, 13 km south of its present course. It is a major industrial center of northern India.

Ludhiana is centrally located on the National Highway 1 from Delhi toAmritsar, and is connected to the Indian capital city of New Delhi by road and frequent train service.

Ludhiana is the richest district in the Punjab state, and also includes the most expensive fertile land of all of India. Dozens of NRI residents come to the city to invest in condos, hotels, and stand for elections in major Ludhiana cities such as Kila Raipur, Talwandi Rai, Raikot, Jagraon,Samrala, and Khanna. Even though Ludhiana is home to many NRIs it did not boost the city economy because the city was always in high demand before people had gone aboard.

We started at 1800 hrs, Instead of going to the bus stand we preferred to go to Smrala Chownk on NH1so that we can save some time. We got a private bus from Samrala Chownk and our journey acctaully started at 1830hrs.

Bus took 2 hrs to reach Chandigarh. It reached Chandigarh at 2030hrs and droped us at ISBT Sector 43. Chandigarh is a city in India that serves as the capital of two states, Punjaband Haryana, and is a union territory of India. The name translates from Hindi to English as "the fort of Chandi", Chandi being a Hindu Goddess. Known internationally for its architecture and urban planning, It is the first planned city of India.

From ISBT we took Auto Riksha for sector 17, which the most happening place in Chandigarh, as we reached there by 2100 hrs the most of the market was closed, avoid being there if you are later.

From Chandigarh Sector 17, we move to a friends place in panchkula for a night stay.

Panchkula is a planned city in Panchkula District, Haryana, India. It is a satellite city of theUnion Territory of Chandigarh. The prestigious Chandimandir Cantonment Headquarters of the Indian Western Command, is also located in Panchkula city.

Our next phase of our journey we hired Taxi, Toyta Quails and a Driver, The charges of quails was Rs 7 per kilometer.

We starts at 0700 hrs on 7th of June, and decided to have breakfast on our way, Now before the foothills of the Himalayas we stopped at pinjoure for some fruits. Pinjore Gardens, said to have legendary connection with Pandavs and Mahabharat. also calledYadavindra Gardens are 20 km from Chandigarh, 15 km from Panchkula, on the ChandigarhShimla road. Pinjore lies on the foothills of the lower Shivalik ranges. The fascinating Mughal Gardens one of the most popular picnic spots. A mini zoo, plants nursery, a Japanese garden, historic palaces and picnic lawns await tourists. Especially at weekends, fountains are switched on and after dusk, lights pick up the beauty of the palaces by night. But due to tight schedule we prefer to move ahead.

From Panchkull 16 km ahead is Kalka, from where you can get one of the longest narrow gauge railway train for shimla, It’s a toy train and the train have its own charm and add to you experience of journey, train take about 5 to 6 hrs to reach Shimla. You can also connect to Kalka directly from train if you are planning from Delhi.

From Kalka 25 km ahead is Dharampur, from where you can take a diversion for kasholi,

We halted there for breakfast, but unfortunately the famous “Gaine De Dhaba was closed” so eating at other dhaba did’t added much taste to the journey. After breakfast we start heading towards our next major landmark Solan which is 17 km Form dharampur, on the way to Solan you will bypass a small town kumanath. As you get close to Solan you can see the infrastructural development on the shivalik ranges of the Himalayas which represents the development of India but also make us realize that such development at the cost our national pride is worth enough.

Solan (1467 meters/4812 feet above see level)is a city and a municipal committee in Solan district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Named after the goddess Shoolini, it is known as the "mushroom city of India" because of the mushroom centre situated at Chambaghat. The district is better known for the Mohan Meakin's brewery (reputed to be India's oldest brewery) and the famous Solan No. 1 whiskey and Golden Eagle beer.

Solan is also known as the industrial hub of Himachal Pradesh. One the tehsil of Solan known by the name of Nalagarh is also known as the Pharma Hub as after the introduction of Special Subsidies by the Prime Minister of India in the year 1999 almost all major Companies came and established their units out over hear. It is also home to an Army and Air Force base. As we reached out to Solan we can feel the dip in the mercury and can feel the cool wind passing through our hair, You can halt hear for a nice cup of tea on any road side dhaba and can enjoy scenic beauty of the place.

Next stop from Solan is kiarighat which Is 23 Km from solan it’s a midpoint between Solan and shimla leaving shimla just 29 Km.

We reached Shimla at 1020 hrs, Shimla (At an average altitude of 2397.59 meters (7866.10 ft) above mean sea level, ) originally called Simla, is the capital city of Himachal Pradesh. In 1864, Shimla was declared the summer capital of the British Raj in India. A popular tourist destination, Shimla is often referred to as the "Queen of Hills" (a term coined by the British). Located in the north-west Himalayas at an altitude of 2,128 metres (6,982 ft), the city ofShimla, draped in forests of pine, rhododendron, and oak, experiences pleasant summers and cold, snowy winters. The city is famous for its buildings styled in tudorbethan and neo-gothicarchitecture reminiscent of the colonial era.

Shimla was annexed by the British in 1819 after the Gurkha War. At that time it was known for the temple of Hindu Goddess Shyamala Devi. The Scottish civil servant Charles Pratt Kennedy built the first British summer home in the town in 1822.

Lord Amherst, the Governor-General of Bengal from 1823 to 1828, set up a summer camp here in 1827, when there was only one cottage in the town, and only 'half a dozen' when he left that year. There were more than a hundred within ten years.[4]

Shimla, or Simla as it was called until recently, caught the eye of Lord William Bentinck, the Governor-General of Bengal from 1828 (later of India, when the title was created in 1833) to 1835. In a letter to Colonel Churchill in 1832 he wrote[5]

Simla is only four days march from Loodianah, is easy of access, and proves a very agreeable refuge from the burning plains of Hindoostaun.

During the 'Hot Weather', Simla was also the Headquarters of the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army and many Departments of the Government, as well as being the summer capital of the regional Government of the Punjab.

The Kalka-Shimla railway line, constructed in 1906, added to Shimla's accessibility and popularity. The railway route from Kalka to Shimla has more than 806 Bridges and 103 tunnels was touted as an engineering feat and came to be known as the "British Jewel of the Orient".[8] In addition, Shimla was also the capital of the undivided state of Punjab in 1871 and remained so until the construction of the new city of Chandigarh (the present-day capital ofPunjab). Upon the formation of the state of Himachal Pradesh in 1971, Shimla was named its capital. Pre-independence structures still dot Shimla; buildings such as the Viceregal Lodge,Auckland House, Gorton Castle, Peterhoff house, and Gaiety Theatre are reminders of British rule in India.[9][1] British Simla extended about a mile and a half along the ridge between Jakhoo Hill and Prospect Hill.

Without taking a hault at Shimla we headed for kufri which is 16 Km from Shimla.

Kufri (2,290 m (7,513 ft).) is a tiny hill station in Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh state inIndia. It is located 13 km from the state capital Shimla on the National Highway No.22. The region around Shimla including Kufri was once a part of the Kingdom of Nepal until the area was ceded to the British Raj as part of the Sugauli Treaty. This region remained obscure from the rest of the world until the British 'discovered' it in 1819.

On reaching Kufri you can park your car in a parking lot. From parking lot you have to treck for about 1.5 KM in the woods, you can also take a horse, but if you are healthy and pretend to be adventure lover, I suggest you to avoid horse back take a walk through with in the dense coniferous forests, where you can intakes a lot of fresh air. Temperature will drop and you will enjoy the weather. As you go on track you will end up with a open space, from where you can enjoy the paranoiac views of the Himalayas (Shivilak Range). There is small amusement part, shri Hanuman temple, Apple orchid and a market for tourist, but I didn’t bought any thing b’cos I felt I can have these thing from any other place also.

The best thing about the place is the whether and fresh air and no pollution. We had lunch over there and after capturing the scenic beauty of the place and valley we started moving back to Our destination Shimla, we reached Shimla via Chhota Shimla at 1545 hrs. As compared we found Shimla very crowded, the trees were cut for the homes which were converted to hotels. As vehicles are not allowed on the Mall road we parked our vehicle in the parking lot and took the stairs, if you are not fit physically you can also take the lift to the mall road…

This is where my one side trip ends.

Few Hours before 63rd Independence of India


Few Hours before 63rd Independence of India, I entered Ludhiana railway station without being frisked or searched, the station was over crowded due to delay of trains, it took me less than a minute to guess that my train Hemkunt express would be late. I made my way in the mob to check the status of my train which was written on the small white board kept inside the enquiry window which gave me a sense of relaxation that my train was not running late. I pushed a couple of people to make my way away from the enquiry towards the platform no:2 where the train was scheduled to arrive.

The platform was over crowded accumulating 5 times its original capacity, passengers of delayed trains were sitting on the platform as the few benches were pre-occupied, mothers with their kids were sleeping on floors, I peeked into the waiting room which had been filled up to its maximum capacity.

I Getting down to the exorbitantly filled platform 2, I checked my wrist watch hands indicating more than 25 minuets had passed..

I found my place in a dark area near the overhead bridge stairs, soon I had to move to a below the speakers so that I could hear the announcements clearly.

I checked the time it was 11:15 by my watch and then I heard “Ting Tong” train was late by 30 minuets.

I decided to move along the platform, the view on the platform was precarious, Appalling thoughts of stamped, blast, Incident at shivaji terminal on 26th November started running in my brain I started looking for a way out in such a situation as there

was nothing on the name of security.

“Ting Tong” I had to concentrate a lot due to noise and far away speakers which broadcasted 45 minutes late of scheduled time.

Huge parcels jacketed most of the platform, benches were less, passengers who were travelling far places and their trains were delayed had spread sheets on the floor and were trying to catch sleep. Suddenly another announcement and a train arrived on platform 3, I moved away with precaution knowingly that the headcount would be double at the platform and it happened the same. As the train stopped passengers started flogging near the doors of the coach to check their names on the reservation chart, which was creating hurdle for the passengers who were getting of the train. The noises of hawkers selling tea, water, cold drinks started echoing people were running from one end of the platform to the other as the coach numbers did not match the order on the platform. Before the train had left I could feel the vibration of another train hitting the platform 2, Coolies dragging trawlers alongside the train on the platform made difficult for people to move. Kids were crying due to such a chaos and heat, for fresh air I started moving towards the end of the platform.

“Ting Tong” I walked briskly towards the broadcasting speakers and the train was 60 minuets late of scheduled time, I turned and started moving towards the end of the platform.

I could see the green light at the last compartment of the train indicating to leave this mess and soon with the distant whistle of the engine I could see the rats on the railway tracks and can smell the India once again.

“Ting Tong” after the wait of an hour train the prolong awaited train was arrived but at platform no 4.

Suddenly the chaos at the platform increased with a the roaring fiend sized engine moving closer to podium, people started rushing towards the overhead bridge some daring one got on the railway tracks to reach platform 4 as earliest as possible, with in minuets the platform 2 got deserted, I considered myself wiser as I had reservation.

Train halted and I advanced by shoving & searching for coach B1 like others passengers. I grabbed the handlebar of the door and the crowed pushed me inside the bogie, any how I managed to find some space to keep my feet as I did not want to disturb the people sleeping on the floor, lights were off and it was literally impossible for me to make my way for my reserved berth 56. It took me around 20 minutes to reach my birth, but it was not all, I still had to struggle for my seat which was pre occupied by 4 people any how I forced two of them to get off and created some space to adjust my luggage and to sit. I moved my wrist in dim light near the door it was 1:00 “ohh my god it took me 45 minuets to reach my berth”. Hardly had I settled a heavy voice asked me for ticket, I turned my head towards the voice and took a deep breath it was the TT. He asked the other two persons to vacate the berth as they were travelling without tickets, but it did not bother them they ignored and the TT moved further ignoring them.

The person sitting next to me started searching for his sleepers as the train started slowing down at the next station which gave me feeling of satisfaction that I now I could lie down and have a comfortable journey.

Train halted more passengers bordered and the journey continued…



Why Should I Go For SAP?




I am really confused when people talk about SAP as choosing their career, just because it pay well but me working in SAP from past 3 years did find much & I still know few of acquaintances who are still looking for jobs in SAP from last 3 years. Training centers are making monies on the name of SAP and are training students without proper licensed software. I really don’t know what it makes students to pay heavy amounts.

I am writing 1st time after receiving so many queries regarding the SAP although I am not the right person but I will like to share my views.

SAP is lucrative to every individual who is a bit aquatinted to the technology, just b’cos its highly pay’d in the IT industry. Every fresh college graduate or experienced professional is looking for prospects in SAP, getting a job in SAP domain is not a cake walk even after Certification from SAP education partners.

The very1st question I am asked is which institute : If you don’t want to waste you money I feel one must choose the SAP education partners like Siemens, Genovate, JKT, etc. Although they will set you aspiration high but they will not give you a job guarantee, you have to scratch you ass for it. So think wisely before spending a huge amount. The advantage SEP (SAP Education Partner) is that you can appear for certification which is defiantly an asset in you carrier.

When should one go for certification: If you are sponsored by the company they I will say you are really -really lucky.

Which module you should go for: For this they will guide you the best, but if you have a technical background then you should go for technical module. But even after certification its not enough, companies these days are looking for multi domain experts even if you are a core technical guy. You can verify this from job postings on the various job-portal. So think twice!

If any one among you wants to go for SAP just b’cos your organization is running SAP & you are working as a end user-think again? does it really required by the company and after certification you will get a salary hike or your promotional aspects will be more then you colleagues if the answers are really positive then don’t think twice.

Few Words “You can only learn SAP if you are working in SAP” there is a misconception that certification is the only way to master it. What matters in the SAP industry is the experience.

Your Opinions will be appreciated.
