As a child, I always ignored questions .... Questions like why does moon follow me, why am I so small and others are this big, why don't I see few things and can see some . Just being frank, I never minded finding answers to those question, neither I ever wanted to know 'why' about them. I was just like 'leave it, I'll know answers to these once I grow enough'. I was too lazy to find answers to those. But on the other hand, I always liked to observe things properly .. I always wanted to see things as...

Everytime I think of my childhood, first thing that comes in my mind is 'Me sleeping in the chair during my childhood'. I remember how much I used to like to sit in the chair. Somehow I always liked those naps on chair. I would sit in the chair and I could easily take 5 minute nap and I never liked to lose that opportunity. Many times I would imagine myself sleeping in the chair for the whole night, but my parents did not like it. It was obvious though that they thought I might get stiff neck or backache...

I remember I was sitting in my class, I was in 2nd standard I guess. It was painting class. Everyone was drawing something. So as me. I think I had drawn "a wooden drawer". I was painting it. I had a crayon in my hand. My teacher looked at me and said .. which color is this ? I was silent. I just kept looking at her. Red. say 'red' !!!, she continued. I was still silent. Just looking at her. If he doesn't start talking soon, he will need speech therapy ( she murmured) Why are you not speaking?,...

Since childhood, it wasn't that I hated going to school but I wouldn't let go a chance to find some excuse and take a break from school for a day. I remember how I used to tell me mom, just a minutes before actually going to school that I had a stomach ache and I can barely walk because of that and so can't go to school. Many excuses that I often gave were very innocent & stupid at the same time.. Hahaha. I would never think that the excuses I was giving ever made any sense. We used to...

Being honest, I had no dreaming of becoming anything in life. I did not know what I wanted to be until I passed my 12th. I mean it was great that I liked playing with computers and phones but that did not necessarily meant that I wanted to be an engineer. My bachelor's days were pretty solid, I wanted to learn electronics and had my bachelor's project to detect gas leakage and alert owner ahead of time. So I went forward to my Masters in the university. I thought going to the university was a big hit as it was...

You know, one of the principles I have is to be aware of my time. I always do what I like and I can spend as much time as I want with the things I like but at the same time I hate spending my time doing things I don't like. I remember, It was daily commute for me from my location to office. I had to wait at the bus stop, bus would come after 10 minutes and It used to be full. I remember, the moment I noticed this in first few days, I started looking for the...

When we had our first phone, I remember how exciting moment it was. The phone we had was Nokia 1100 ( double one, double zero). I was in school, I didn't even know that papa bought new phone. When I came back from school, he gave me 1 rupee and asked to give a call on his new phone number. Coin boxes were famous back then. You put a coin, dial a number and it would let you talk for a minute. I did not know whats going on but I knew somethings wrong. I was good at guessing. On...

When I was in hostel, during my masters, I remember how much fun we used to have in the room. Anything could make us laugh. I remember, we didn't have much cellular bandwidth in out hostel. We had a window and there we had a good range. Obviously we couldn't be there at window all the time, neither we had anything to put our phones nearby. So our jugaad was that we bought a big phone case in which almost everyone's phone could fit, and we tied it ( literally tied it) to our window.... we had 3 of such...

Hahaha... I was just smiling in the afternoon when I recalled how I used to get some milk for my doggy without letting my parents know. My mom hardly liked dogs but I was super excited to have one. Don't judge me but I was too small to know that I can't eat their biscuits. It's not that those biscuits cause problems if you, it's more like those are made for dogs, not for us. Every time fed some to my dog, I took few and sat with him so we can eat together. I would eat one and would...
