And Miles to go before I sleep…

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


From Robert Frost’s NEW HAMPSHIRE, this poem is a real inspiration telling that a long road ahead, so be prepared to face it.This is the marvel on human principle of deeds and romantic fascination .

Its about journey we all take, from childhood to adulthood, how hard times seem like dark times, and how easy it seems sometimes to simply give up. But we all have promises to keep, parents to make proud, obligations to fulfill, therefore miles to go before we sleep. . Its about carrying on even when you think no-one is watching, or when all you really want is to rest. Always remember, every task, job or challenge you take is a promise you make. And some of good character would go the distance before you become really aware of.

Most of us fall victim to the apparent beauty or handsomeness , forgetting the purpose of life that that remains in one’s self-less activities of good deeds.As temptation and feasting senses often cause our downfall.We are not told, however, that the call of social responsibility proves stronger than the attraction of the woods, which are “lovely” as well as “dark and deep”.He is stirred by the magical scenery. But can’t stay for as long as he’d like, for he has pressing responsibilities.

It is OK to take time to stop and enjoy life, but not to the extent that it keeps you away from keeping your promises.We may enjoy the beauty of a girl , or nature , but not at the cost of our work . (Take time to smell the roses, but don’t dilly dally around.)

Also , There is a slight lack of surety in the speaker saying to himself, “I think I know,” thus again signifying the meeting ground between what he knows and what he does not.The speaker focuses almost exclusively on the physical fact of his surroundings, he is at the same time articulating his own mental landscape.

What appears to be “simple” is shown to be not really simple, what appears to be innocent is not really innocent…

Three months on, college students pursuing science degrees will rub shoulders with Nobel laureates and world-renowned scientists. For the first time, India will host the Asian Science Camp 2010 in Mumbai. Organised by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, the camp starting August 17 will see 240 students from SAARC countries.
“The aim is to motivate students to pursue a career in science and research. It will also promote friendship and cooperation among the best young students of the next generation in the Asian region,” said H.C. Pradhan, HBCSE director.
The camp will be funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. Started in 2007, these camps have been held at Taipei, Bali and Japan. The camp, open to first and second year science students, will have up to 10 Nobel laureates addressing them over five days.
