@ RTO office !!

22 years, by now I should have had a licence !! thought provoked and I approached an agent for taking a licence. He jus asked me to pay 400 bucks and asked me to be @ RTO office the next morning, and handed a paper which had  all trafic signals and stuffs and @ its back I had a contact number of a person named Sunil, whom I'm supposed to catch up in RTO office.  I jus had a swift glimpse @ that paper  that night.

        Next Morning, I started to RTO office, I'm not sure where exactly it is, and so I inquired a person near guindy and somehow reached the office on time.  I called up Sunil and he got my documents and asked me to wait. RTO office, again a typical Govt office (hope no adjectives reqd)
I was waiting for quater-an-hour there, Then he asked me to get into the exam cell. I had 4 other guys with me and 3 were through agents and one poor guy came on his own (probably, he wud hav neva heard anything abt govt office ;) ) So We 5 guys were cross checked for the details we furnished and then we were given computers to take up a test. The moment we went and sat, A voice peered from my back "Thambi, Silent a iru, naa paathukraen" I turned back , and I had to see a huge person with a pot belly giving a blank smile @ me . I din understand wat he meant . It took a moment for me to understand that he din want me to take the test, for all the four who came through agents, It was a name sake test. This person came and chuckled the keyboard for probably 100 seconds , the test got over with a congratulations. He was so experticed wit the questions so that he din take more than  2 seconds for 1 question and the best part is he was attending two tests (I mean for 2 person) simultaneously. All I had to do was smile ;) . Then I had something fishy to watch out. 4 ppl through agent cleared and the one who came on his own flunked in de test. He ain't aware that o'ly ppl who come through agents clear all of 'em seamlessly. 
They jus gotta signature from us in a record and asked us to collect the LLR from respective agents and asked to come after 30 days for licence. The day was done.
   I turned back to home, Had a drink and sat back in ma long armed chair contemplating abt all those things happened there. Directly or Indirectly I've bribed people and Its clearly picturized that nothing is gonna happen there without money or person there. I dunno if I was right or the guy who din get his work done was right. But ultimately, I got my work done.
All I felt is "Kali kalumuda eppa ;) "

Whatever happens, happens for a Reason !!

 The very question that arises in every mind is " Why Me, Why ME God !! ".
Our life often sounds like being topped up with pangs and toils, and yes, makes us feel that ours is thee toughest life with all sort of problems. Ofcourse, this might even put us in dismay at times.
But let us think certain things very practically and believe certain things which are unsaid.
    " Sure we are  the masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; its complications are not beyond my endurance; 
As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us "
   I believe, Life is always left out with options. Whateva be the adversity of the problem,We can either opt for , One, to Sit back. Two, to set back. It is our own choise which is going to make all the difference. "To Sit back" sounds to be more comfortable but in the long run the person who sets back once he faces the problem would have moved miles ahead in life, because he is the one who knows to adapt changes and thy he overlives life. SO its all about facing whateva happens with all the courage and moving ahead. Certainly every problem we face is just to assess the endurance of ours. !!
  Sometimes people come into your life
and you know right away that they were
meant to be there... to serve some
sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or
help figure out who you are or who you
want to become. You never know who
these people may be but when you look
eyes with them, you know that every
moment that you are with them, they
will affect your life in some profound
way. And sometimes things happen to
you at the time that may seem horrible,
painful and unfair, but in reflection
you realize that without overcoming
those obstacles you would have never
realized your potential, strength,
will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason!
Nothing happens by chance or by means
of good luck. Illness, injury, love,
lost moments of true greatness and sheer
stupidity all occur to test the limits
of your soul. Without these small
tests, life would be like a smoothly
paved, straight, flat road to nowhere,
safe and comfortable but dull and
utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life.
The successes and downfalls that you
experience can create who you are, and
the bad experiences can be learned
from.... In fact, they are probably the
most poignant and important ones.
If someone hurts you, betrays you or
breaks your heart, forgive them because
they have helped you learn about trust
and the importance of being cautious
to whom you open your heart. If someone
loves you, love them back unconditionally
not only because they love you, but
also because they are teaching you to
love and open your heart and eyes to
little things.

MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT! Appreciate every moment and take from it everything
that you possibly can, for you may never
be able to experience it again. Talk to people who you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn't seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh, and make you happy.

Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life then LET GO and LIVE IT!

A Dream Ride !!

It was  December of 1996 that owned a  devilish evening with monstrous thunder and the down-pour stripping off the mud from the road, making it look glossy under the mercury vapour lamp.
The place was deaden silent except for the gushing of water beads on the streets... !! 

The kid and his mom were sittin on the verandah of the wide house and were staring at the road,
moms eyes were filled up with some kind of expectation. The kid was on his way enjoying the pampering of the heavenly rain dropplets that scatters from  the nearby wall.

The clock speeds up itz pace and it was 9:50 pm. Neither the gush of water flow nor the silence prevailing had a change. "Dhudhub" that was a heavy thunder crackling down the line, the kid got afraid and hugged his mom from behind. Mom embraced him and gave him the warmth and courage to get back.

There came the thump "did did did did did did did" , Yes It was the god built machine's sound.
The kid pumping out of his seating, yelling "Dad's back" and yes that brought a deep smile in moms face. The kid is alwayz fascinated by the thump he hears.

Down the road, It looked like a dawn in the late night , illuminating the darkness of the darkest clouds. The thump giving a vibrant effect in the kid. There came his dad, He looked like an all time hero for the kid . His dad parked his Bullet (yes, the God made machine ) and givin a wide smile at the kid and the mom. The kid wanted a hug and the dad gave one. 

"Dad aren't you afraid of these darkness and these gruesome thunders ? " the kid asked.
Dad kissed the kid's forehead and said "No baby, You  ride a Bullet and You are the king of this world, nothing could bring a fear in you" and went in taking his kid in his shoulders and mom in arms.

That might be just a phrase from dad, but those words were inscribed in the kid's heart.
He came in, sat with his dad who is havin his dinner. He clutched his dad's arms with all anxiety and asked him "Dad, Can I own a bullet ? ". Dad laughed and said, "Baby you are just nine now, Yes, you can own but you should buy one and should buy with your love not with your dad's wallet, because itz a mix of passion and pride !! ", and that gave birth to a fiery dream to own a bullet.

A year rolled off, and unfortunately, the kid's dad passed away all of a sudden. It was all sob's around for years. The kid grew up, yes with all memories of dad and with all the dreams of his dad's Bullet. He craved for those moments but said within himself, " Everything is gonna be alright ." those school days were over, It was time to college,  his foot drove him to college, all his mates flaunting with Sports class bike did not make him feel envious !! He jus remembered his dad saying "Not from dad's wallet" and he smiled at them everytime.  

All he did those dayz was closing his eyes, seeing himself riding the king of the road, with an aviator eye gear and a semi-closed US military helmet and a pair of bull's leather glove with all  the thump making people turn at him !! again he opened his eyes and said "yes its gonna come true" 

It is March 2009, Now he is not a kid, not a teen, he is a Man now, got his hard earned job in his hands!! He got into the job and got his earnings too !! The man now deserves the Macho , and he knows it too !!
He is all set to bring his dream come true, He booked his Bullet with his first earnings.
He closed his eyes and said "Dad, It is My First Love, My Pride, My Pulse , My Passion , My Dream and what not , and dad, I made it from my wallet...." he was able so see his dad smiling with all the bliss.
and thats up now...
He rode his Bullet home, It is back home after 13 long years. His mom was all brimming to see her kid driving back the bull. It was not the end, It is just the begining.
The royal ride will continue, roads might end, not thy dreamz !!
