30 Days of Truth

*****************************************************************************************

When a very bit of small Hobby you are fond of, which you would definitely like to do most of time whenever you get some time. Exploring your vivid imaginations. It eventually becomes your Passion which you always would do and never like to leave. But unfortunately, being busy and indulging in other important tasks modern life, You can’t give enough time for your Passion and therefore, you lose it somewhere.

Same happened with me. Like I’ve said, I was much passionate towards Arts during my childhood days, doesn’t means that I’m not so right now .. I’m still so but not that much. I was totally inspired with many forms of Artworks which usually our Art Teacher used to give us Bi-weekly. Some used to do it like a Burden as if they are being forced to complete it. Whereas for me, It was yet another Mystery to be solved, yet another Mountain to be climbed,  yet another World to be explored and eventually yet  another Goal to be achieved. Keep that attitude, I didn’t feel that I was doing just to complete my Homework ASAP, Impressing my Art Teacher and getting Good Grades in Drawing. It was becoming a Fun to be enjoyed. That particular subject was becoming a Hobby.

And this is how, I just getting more and more into Drawing. It’s not that I used to focus only in that, I was even good in other subjects as well. Among the Toppers you could say. 😛 Still, I’ve made a BALANCE between Drawing and other Academic Subjects those days. I used to refer TV Art shows Like – Art Attack and M.A.D.for getting more knowledge on other forms of Art. I’ve participated in many Inter-School Competitions, in some of them I’ve won as well. Not just my family and friends, My School Teachers used to appreciate and encouraged me all for that. Among them, My Mom was the one who Encouraged me a lot sparing some of my Bad Habits and Naughtiness. I was so much addicted with it that I even used to draw my Sister’s Drawing Homework a lot. Whether it was any Art or any Book Diagram,I used to do it quietly and in return, she didn’t tells Dad how much I played Video Games or Cricket with friends today. 😛 Though I was not that much pioneered in Arts, but ya I was learning faster and getting more better. 😉

With such improvements and achievements in my Drawing, I’ve realized afterwards, that this Hobby is now growing up into a Passion. I was even day-dreaming that I could do it like a professional Artist. But like I’ve said as soon as you Grow-up, your priorities change. Same happened with me which I still regret. Well after clearing my Metric (10th Std. Board) Exams, I’ve was more passionate towards Science Field especially in Computer Science. Being A Science Non-Medical Student, I devoted my most time into Learning Theoretical and Practical Concepts, Understanding Languages and even after Studying Harder n’ Harder for my Engineering Entrance Exams (IIT-JEE, AIEEE and DCE-CEE). As I was indulging myself more into Academics, My Career Priority of being an Engineer lied above of Being an Artist. With this, I’ve lost all my Excellent Skills in Arts as I hardly practiced for it. It seemed as if the Soul and Passion for becoming an Artist died those days.

Yet another Grief that I’m sharing. Not a Big One, but still painful.But Looking some of my Batch-mates and some Seniors of my College, who are seriously DAMN inspiring and totally Pioneered in Arts. Looking them and then looking me, I’ve learned a Lesson that Neither Leave Your Passion Alone Nor Let it Die inside You, cause in the end It hurts so Bad.

So learning through all these experiences, I’ve started bringing up my Talent back again. Again Leaning , Exploring, and Practicing. I’ve participated and also won in many Art Competitions organised in our and others College Fests. I usually make Drawings with Chalk in our Classroom Board, whenever there’s some Free Period. Plus, I’ve started making some Sketching in my College Notes during Boring Lectures as well. 😛 Moreover, I am also in College Fine Arts Team, who make Banners and Posters for our College Fests. Many of the Artworks that I’ve published so far here in my Blog, they all have been made during my recent College Days.

Well, It was my unfortunate that I left my Talent for a while and paid it costly. But no regrets now at all. I can’t change my Past, but could endure my Present and Future. Still I’m passionate of Art and even placed it in my Career Priority List. I’ve started making a Balance between my college Studies and my Passions. Though I’m lost all my Ole School Drawing Skills, Still I’m learning and exploring more into it as sometimes it feels so Good to learn and grow up like a Kid again. 8)

Jab We Met (When Two Net Buddies Clashed)


After getting pissed-off from my First College Semester in NSIT and even in my Winter Holidays, in which I’ve done nothing but SHIT, Twas the time to get ready for Second College Semester. Yet another Excitement for going back to College, to meet your College friends back and have a get together with them after a long time. Plus, some new faces from DCE, whose branches were upgraded and drafted to our college, were joining with us this Semester, which is yet another excitement to interact with, to know about and eventually to make friends with them.

Especially, one of them, which is now a good friend of mine, to whom I’ve interacted via Orkut and Facebook from the very since of our College Admission, through Social-Networking. We have done a lot of chatting and also some serious talks. Eventually, a nice interaction like friends usually has. But, we haven’t seen each other as we neither had placed our photos as Display Pics (DPs) nor we had share with each other. Hmmm… Privacy you see. 😛 It wasn’t that I was too much desperate to meet, its kinda eager to meet that person, after a lot of interactions though Social-Networking.

Anyways, I’ve literally got Goosebumps on very first day of my Second Semester, cause Twas the time to meet that person as well. That’s obvious for sure, as we would be having certain doubts in our minds about each other’s appearance and personality in reality since we haven’t met each other before that. During the first day for Registration, I recognized her easily, cause I saw her name on the Registration Form, which she was holding. Still, I had a doubt whether I regained or not because there were some new faces that were joining our IT Branch. Moreover, I was bit shy to ask that person whether she was the one to whom I chatted for months, cause I really found that bit STUPID thing to ask at that time. So I went away when I was done with my my Registration.

But the real thing happened out of nowhere Next Day on Applied Mechanics Laboratory. The Lab. Assistant Sir called my roll no. ” 711 “. I immediately replied, “Yes Sir “. The moment I was about to say my name, my classmate suddenly said ” He’s Ashish Bardhan, Facebook ka Raja (The King of Facebook) “. Everybody laughed on it and finally due to his kind introduction, that person finally was able to recognize me. No doubt. Out of nowhere, It just happened like that and we met in that way. Next what? She said what she used to welcome while Orkutting, “Aur Sirjee Kaise Ho ? “. And, the only thing I did, I blushed like Shinchan. 😛

Like I’ve said, Goosebumps and Shyness – The Good Ole Inherit Features of mine prevailed that moment as well. Maybe I’m bit Introvert in reality inspite of being DAMN Extrovert in Orkut and Facebook. It’s not I lack confidence or something, I’ve just got shocked for a while during that surprising meeting. I’m just the way I’m. That’s it Folks !!

So This is how – Jab We (The Net Buddies) Met one day !! 😀 😉

PS:- This ain’t a Love Story, It’s just a normal meeting between two Net Buddies in Reality. MIND IT !! 😛
