My Mobile’s Birthday

Friday, 28th May, 2010 holds a very significant place in my life. 10th Cbse result for the academic year 2009-10 was announced on this date. At 8:00 am in the morning I opened my computer and saw the most awaited result of my life. The computer showed I got 9.6 cgpa. I can still picture that moment flawlessly in my head. My mouth fell open. I was taken aback I wasn’t expecting such a great result. I shouted “maaaaaaaaaa”. My mother got scared fearing I didn’t score well. She came running towards me and I hugged her tightly. My mom looked at the computer. When I looked at her face all I saw were signs of joy and delight as well as proud and contentment in her eyes. It still inspires me to study more and make her proud of me. J
For the last few months (after my 10th boards were done) I’d been bugging my parents to buy me a new mobile. I had Nokia 3500c for two years. Now I wanted a new mobile. We made a deal. If I’d get above 95% in my boards I can get anything I want. And since my result was unexpectedly and pleasantly above 95% my parents had no choice but to buy me a mobile of mah choice.

In the afternoon I started convincing my dad to go and buy it right now. After 2-3 hours continuous convincing my sweet-sweet father melted :P and told we’d go at 4:00 p.m. in the evening.

In the evening we searched for the best and most kewl handset for me. We went to many Nokia showrooms. At last I decided to buy Nokia X3.

Today is my mobile’s birthday. J It’s been one year since I first laid my eyes on my cell. My mobile phone has been a great buddy both in bad and good phase. At difficult times it connected me to my loved ones. It gave me an opportunity to share my happiness with my pals.

My morning starts with the alarm in my mobile and my day ends by sending good night sms to all my dear friends. I spent most of my free time listening songs on my mobile and taking random pics. I love clicking pictures. I have clicked around 1500 images.

Boulevard of broken dreams

Broken Dreams

A girl grows up listening to fairytales. As you all know the theme of all the fairytales is one and the same: A handsome prince comes on his white horse to rescue the pretty princess who is imprisoned either by her stepmother or a cruel witch who is jealous of her exquisiteness. The princess spends her whole life waiting for the charming prince to come and save her from the clutches of wicked witch.

Like the princess every girl dreams of her Prince Charming who will one day sweep her off her feet to a world where everything is wonderful, beautiful, serene, and pure-identical to a fairyland. Every day she fantasises being a princess who is loved by her prince. She desires to have an eternal love life that will go on for-ever. Her world revolves around the castles, fairies, and most essentially around her dream man. She hopes that her dream guy would give her everything she deserves to have.

As she grows up she realizes the bitter truth that all those dreams were phony. There is no such thing as fairies, princes and castles.  There is no prince charming. No guy can fulfil her dreams. She realizes that all her hopes, wishes; dreams were illusory- totally out of this world.  It dawns on her she has spent her days dreaming of a life which doesn’t even exist. Love happens only in novels and movies. When her dreams are crushed brutally by the realism of life no one can hear its shattering; only her heart can understand the agony of breaking dreams.
