Sunscreen song.

So, I am back ! with the old theme. This is to share article by *Mary Schmich*.  After pondering much to attend or not,the panel discussion titled about ‘Placements’ , by Reflections team, made me move out of my room-snugness. Finally it proved to be rewarding experience for me, getting to know what seniors thoughts were and, what they feel at the end of UG life.

Prof. Prathap Haridoss , was somewhere in between mentioning about this song, referring to someone’s question. The main article can be found here (And a more human version here) . And if I could offer you one thing I learned that evening, I would like to say:

When alone, Sit back and relax ; at-least once in a week and dissect yourself. What you are upto and where are your actions leading you to… Reflect on your actions !

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…

Speaker`s ON…!

Recently I have watched Wake up Sid after being bugged lots of times by one of my dearest friend.

Particularly the theme which he wanted to convey really touched me., which, more or less is a story of  BOY.

This impressive song goes like this:

Lyrics here.And Summary here.

Though the ending of the movie was quite predictable,the director treated the movie in a little serious and philosophical manner which not many youth in the audience appreciate these days. The movie is very symbolic and one can only really appreciate it if they can strongly relate to what the director is trying to talk about in the movie. This is a must watch for everyone who is or was in the Grey stage of growing from a boy to a man. A beautiful movie which deserves to be watched with an open perspective. 🙂

(Konkona Sen Sharma & Ranbir Kapoor , Karan Johar )

(Dedicated to.. the One who inspired me to post this)

Bottom Line: Not every one is perfect, there cannot be pure good, pure bad people, it has its own shade of Grey, that is what Sid the character is all about. Then, once you realize this, you go out and try and find what you love doing, and do that. Everything else will fall in place.That`s how the system works!
