Rebirth

If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.

Rebirth, A Fresh Start or the same myself @ http://agileopedia.com/

As I start with this let me say I may or may not preserve my memory and it is also possible that I start regaining my memory as I progress in my rebirth.

Thereafter the sequence of event may not be same assuming that there has been a lot of advancements since I am born, definitely will miss a few things as a child while enjoy some.

A life is not enough to explore the many opportunities around us, so it cant get better than to have a second chance to relive the moments with our near and dear ones.

So when I am reborn I will certainly like to be the same as my present self and would also like the privilege to have the same parents and family. I am privileged to have them in my life especially my parents and my wife and daughter. I would not like to risk at all, one might not know what he ends up with. So for sure I will try to live the same life again and modify a few recourse of my life which I think could have been much better and relive the moments with everyone.

This opens the whole world of possibilities starting from my childhood, teens, marriage, birth of child and much more. With the power of having retained my old memories I will certainly be fun and excitement to rewrite history again in another form.

With so much love and affection all around who needs anything else no matter how many times you are reborn, wish everyone has a life so that he must like to live it again and again.

Let there be some breeze and a drizzle of rain,

Let there be another life which I can relive once again.

Thanks team WordPress for selecting my prompt suggestion.

Handwritten

When was the last time you wrote something by hand? What was it?

I come from a generation of greeting cards, so yes I love to surprise people by leaving a small note very often.

I love to give small bits of paper decorated with a few words written by me to my family and immediate friends and mates.

Last I wrote one for my daughter and wife on the occasion of their birthday and daughters day.

I would highly recommend it to others and trust me it works magic when there is just a little bit of human touch. I equally enjoy receiving handwritten notes and cards, these add warmth.

Enjoy weekend… stay blessed.

Inside A Bubble!!!

A contagious disease requires you to be put into quarantine for a whole month (don’t worry, you get well by the time you’re free to go!). How would you spend your time in isolation?

I wish no one is subjected to such a situation a lethal contagious disease and to be put in isolation for a month.

If they are to be put in a bubble then only as depicted in the image, having fun activity.

In such a case the best friend and the best past time will be a device with access to internet.

This will be enough to live and survive this time for most of us comfortably.

#1 song when you were born?

What was the #1 song when you were born? (not sure? you can find out here.)

It seems I took Duke Orsino’s advise a bit seriously when I was reading Twelfth Night during my school days.

While I exactly cant recall my birth however am sure after 5 years down the line was sure about having some favourite number of Bollywood songs and whilst it was the 80’s era so there was a boom in disco.

Music is my weakness and I used to spend most of my time listening to music, I had a record player HMV one ( vinyl player, turn table) , which was my best company and I used to play songs till my neighbours complained and was very proud to own it. Again I was lucky as my parents did have little interference  I used to listen to music thereafter to the rest of my life, still I am listening classical while writing the post. . Check this out you might like it:

Kaushiki & Parthasarathi sings Hamsadhwani (Lagi Lagan)

Kaushiki is a perfect example of divine beauty and golden voice and rules the classical world.

I have still preserved the records and feel very proud of them as it is almost extinct now, memories are attached with them.

Then came the 90’s when I had developed the liking for Bee Gees, Richard Marx, Bon Jovi, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Def Lepard and Johnny Cash( country music) and many more. I always loved the way Johnny Cash introduced himself before every song and concert, “Hi! My name is Johnny Cash”.  I also recommend if you can watch Walk the Line, a movie based on the life of the singer.

I enjoyed writing this and hope that you would have equally enjoyed reading it.

Golden Age

Golden Age @http://agileopedia.com/
Golden Age @http://agileopedia.com/

We grow up enjoying our life and then do schooling with people who become our best friends and followed by some serious stuff in college.

We enjoy life like the freely falling rain drop and seldom think about our past and future or marriage or kids.

This is a time meant for enjoyment in the sense that although youngsters are accountable for their studies however there is no added responsibilities of earning bread and butter, running the family so on and forth.

At least I enjoyed my school and college time a lot and I owe it to my Mom and Dad.

So by far the best time in life is to live as a child getting pampered or as an adolescent with abundance of innovation and energy.

Decision, Decision, how to make a precision!!!

So how do you decide whether it’s yes or no, right or wrong or good or bad?

How are you more likely to make an important decision — by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut? @http://agileopedia.com/

How the pilot decides whether it’s good to land or hover.

Coming from a software background I would share that in IT paradigm we have a GO/NO Go decision. This means whether we plan to go live or not with a product release. So how does one conclude with the decision?

In software product releases we take the help of some stats, pass rate of tests help to decide on the stability and there are certain must have features governed beforehand which must be working ( MoSCoW model is used here which means Must have, should have and would have).

Then on top of it there is always a presence of experience and the GUT feeling of the managers the stakeholders and the client when they sit and decide whether it’s good to go live or call off the release.

It relates to our own personal self also, when we need to take decisions we have our own stats and supporting facts and figures. These help us to decide and draw a fine line between good and bad and whether we go for it or not and narrow our circle of doubts. There is always the gut feeling which one gains using his experience, this is called wisdom and it can never be taught or coached, one has to earn it.

Let me confess this is easier said than done and even the most experience tumbles at time in choosing and deciding, follow and listen to your inner self and moral values too, it will help too.

A few lines before I wrap it up:

When I start my journey to success, I find several roads leading to thee,

Then I land on a crossing, with confusion breeding on me.

Wise men advise, thou take this way or this one, but let me tell you my son,

Take a route and stick to it, thou shall find your destination.

This is my take on How are you more likely to make an important decision, let me know yours.

What’s your last for today….

So this is the last post from me.

How many times we have said This is the last time I am smoking, I call it quit now.

This is the last drink, I wont from tomorrow.

We have had so many forgotten last times in our lives which we dont really commit to.

These are the ones which are good enough to be left.

How about a last post.

Never, this is a pretty good addiction to call it a quit and wish people keep sharing their creativity and we never have a last post.

Happy weekend….

Survival In Captivity…

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

I used to maintain a book on quotations, metaphors and idioms when I was a kid, there was no internet kinda stuff.

One of the idioms that pops up is this one:

While others live to eat, I Eat to live. 

Eat to Live – Basically it means that eating should not be one of your favourite hobby, one should eat healthy and survive. At least I am not to finicky when it comes to eating. As a matter of fact we need to eat to survive else we succumb.

Live to Eat- on the other hand refers to the fact that eating for you is something beyond just survival.

Given the fact of captivity, do I need to bother what I have been given to eat once taken captive, still given the choice I would go with rice, tea, pulses, egg and bread.

In this age I believe having internet access will be much of a boon when in captivity. we can keep posting our daily update on social media.

The above image is from a country side restaurant in India when we were en-route to Agra to see the beautiful Taj Mahal. These are called Dhabas in India and they serve some real good traditional Indian mouth watering and relishing dishes.

So next time you come to India make sure you visit one.
