What is there to do after the Graduation... ?? Part-1


I know you will have many answers for this question. But probably most of you would agree to get into a Job soon. Yeah, obviously Occupation is the best option that you can call for getting your life settled. Still some brainy guys would prefer higher studies, to satisfy their quest for knowledge. However I am now neglecting the brilliant stories of those bluestocking personalities. Here I am sharing a space for those unlucky who are labelled as “Losers”.

It will be a Herculean task for them to answers the enumerated list of enquires about job, life, plans etc. Questions that difficult to answer...Queries that should not be asked ...Interrogations that screw them up. And of course the spectators and well wishers actually blow them into a total mess. Then you would realize the matters you called as hazards were not really when you compare with this rapid firings. I am sure that the period of Job hunt is the hard times in every one’s life. The realities’ of struggling would be a bitter pill to swallow. So that is the reason even a small earning would make you feel that you are in the seventh heaven.Yes, really the distance between the label of an Unemployed and an Employed person is not so smaller. And of course the attitude of society, the well wishers to both of them are quite different. So when your friends get into jobs then that news becomes sour grapes for you.

Peeping into an Engineering college Class room......Part 2

So friends, I hope you got my point. Let me continue giving voice to the concerns of Students. And as I said before, this piece of article have no intention of getting on anybody's nerves. So please keep a cool head and be in a positive frame of mind.

So back to the typical classrooms.....The lectures never want to see the student’s mouth opened unless they are asked to answer their brain teasers. So some starts beating their brains out, some others scratch their head and cracks a smile at the quiz master , and the rest reads through the notes.

The policy is Just sit and grab the entire hot properties dropped by them, in this hell.As a rule, All should takes the scraps of greatest virtual concepts. So the under performers who doesn’t belongs in the honor rolls still stay there as a lost ball in high weeds. No Emotions, especially a yawn, a laugh is never tolerated. They expect us to be in the class with a disappointed face but never with an excited one.Sorry,I can’t text the feelings of the lecture in a true way,since I am just a student now.We love them but only outside the class.

So why these classes becomes so uninteresting? Why everyone feels so sleepy? Can’t there be some changes implemented to the system. Why the syllabus prefer a single ruler pattern? Why the students are ignored? Are we slow-witted? Or do they think, we could never be a part of an interactive class?

I would prefer a class in which I have some involvement to one that I just sit and curse the syllabi. So I wish they ask me what I know, than what they expect to be known by me.But it never happens.So it is just a bitter pill to swallow.And I m still part of the flow….

Peeping into an Engineering college Class room......Part 1

I am right now in my class room, physicaly giving my presence and mind searching over some other matters…

But today I don’t want my mind to let it roam through the corridors of my past or to knock at the doors of my future. Let it analyze “What is going on here ,in an average self financing Engineering College lecture class??”

But one note, reminding my dear readers, this is not through the ways of bookworms, nor padippist and bhugis, but just the thoughts of an average girl who break out from intellectual theorems from switching off her day dream skills. Lectures please forgive me, this is not meant to criticize you.

This is an average class, under higher tolerance level of students. The most usual form of struggling scenes in typical engineering colleges of Kerala.

Then the question is who is struggling…Yup, the answer is both the two entities..Loudspeaker (lecture) and the Silencers (students).The struggling of lectures are at a point of view, to get over their financial crises after the complete broke during their academics. The struggling from student’s point of view is that they have to co-up with the burden of expectations of the family and heavy syllabi.So this is our World……

Words Say the Funniest Things

Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as "4's"?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

When someone asks you, "A penny for your thoughts," and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car not called a racist?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

"I am." is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. How is it, then, that "I do," is the longest sentence?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and drycleaners depressed?

Why is it that if someone tells you that there are one billion stars in the universe, you'll believe it, but if you're told a wall has wet paint, you'll have to touch it to be sure?

If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes"?

so don't get disappointed,One day this gadget will turn into a reality!!:)

Notable pranks and hoaxes of Fool's Day...

One of the great media hoaxes of all time was perpetrated on April 1, 1957 by the BBC, which reported on its news program Panorama that Switzerland was experiencing a bumper spaghetti harvest that year thanks to favorable weather and the elimination of the dread "spaghetti weevil." Staged video footage showing happy peasants plucking strands of pasta from tall trees was so convincing that many viewers actually called the network to ask how they could grow their own.

Some of the best-known pranks in recent years were mounted by advertising agencies. In 1996, Taco Bell ran a full-page ad in the New York Times announcing it had purchased the Liberty Bell and would rename it the "Taco Liberty Bell." Burger King pulled off a similar prank in 1998, announcing the rollout of its "Left-Handed Whopper" supposedly designed so that condiments would drip from the right side of the burger rather than the left.

On the Internet hoaxes have become such standard fare that April Fools' Day is barely distinguishable from any other, though a few notable pranks stand out and tend to be reposted year after year -- e.g., the 1996 announcement that every computer connected to the World Wide Web must be turned off for Internet Cleaning Day, a 24-hour period during which useless "flotsam and jetsam" are flushed from the system.

Backtracking the History....

An observance which takes place in many western countries every April 1, traditionally known as April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day (aka Poisson d'Avril — "April Fish" — in France). It's a day when humor reigns and harmless pranks, practical jokes, and hoaxes are sanctioned. Customary practices range from simple tricks played on friends, family, and coworkers to elaborate media hoaxes concocted for mass consumption.

The origins of April Fools' Day are obscure. The most commonly cited theory holds that it dates from 1582, the year France adopted the Gregorian Calendar, which shifted the observance of New Year's Day from the end of March (around the time of the vernal equinox) to the first of January.

According to popular lore some folks, out of ignorance, stubbornness, or both, continued to ring in the New Year on April 1 and were made the butt of jokes and pranks on account of their foolishness. This became an annual tradition, according to this version of events, which ultimately spread throughout Europe.

A major weakness of the calendar-change theory is that it fails to account for an historical record replete with traditions linking this time of year to merriment and tomfoolery dating all the way back to antiquity.

BLOOD Seems evapourating ???

"It is too hot today.."

Most of our conversations start as the above.It is true,there is enough hot these days,that could possibly evapourate even the blood.

I feel it is a terrible task to spend atleast 5 minutes in the town in the day light.But it is unavoidable for a student,employee or who ever else.

It is a dangerous fact that,buildings replaced our old banyan trees that stayed on our road sides as a relief in earlier days.

Many green elements that stuck to my childhood memories has vanished.

Many researchers have found that green is the color that a human eye founds comfortable.So watching the greenaries is a good aid as a self-relaxing manner.

But,what if green nature starts vanishing from earth?what should we do?Simply giving lectures about the consequences? Would that do ?


Need to Go

Let us show others,what these great green can do?

Common,Action speaks louder than words.

Causes of Depression http://www.allaboutdepression.com/cau_01.html

Unfortunately, it is not fully known what exactly causes clinical depression for a particular individual. There are many theories about causes such as biological and genetic factors, environmental influences, and childhood or developmental events. However, it is generally believed that clinical depression is most often caused by the influence of more than just one or two factors. For instance, a person whose mother had recurrent major depression may have inherited a vulnerability to developing clinical depression (genetic influence). This combined with how the person thinks about him- or herself (psychological influence) in response to the stress of going through a divorce (environmental influence), may put him or her at a greater risk for developing depression than someone else who does not have such influences.

The causes of clinical depression are likely to be different for different people. Sometimes a depressive episode can appear to come out of nowhere at a time when everything seems to be going fine. Other times, depression may be directly related to a significant event in our lives such as losing a loved one, experiencing trauma, or battling a chronic illness.

The "Causes" section of this site describes what is known or theorized about the causes of clinical depression. Information is grouped within categories: Biological Causes, Genetic Causes, Environmental Causes, Psychological Causes, Medical Illness, and Other Causes.

Risk Factors for Depression
Related to the discussion of the causes of clinical depression is something called, "risk factors." Essentially, we are all at risk for developing a depressive illness. People of all ages, races, and social class can become clinically depressed. No one is completely immune to this condition. However, it is important to know that the more common illnesses of major depression and bipolar disorder do tend to affect some groups of individuals more so than others. Some features of these groups, when associated with the development of a depressive illness, are known as "risk factors."

Please remember that no one is predestined to develop clinical depression. However, it can be very important to be aware of risk factors so that those of us who may be vulnerable can educate ourselves, be attentive to warning signs, and take steps towards recognizing and preventing this illness.

Risk Factors For Major Depression-

Gender: In the United States, women are about as twice as likely as men to be diagnosed and treated for major depression. Approximately 20-25% of women and 12% of men will experience a serious depression at least once in their lifetimes. Among children, depression appears to occur in equal numbers of girls and boys. However, as girls reach adolescence, they tend to become more depressed than boys do. This gender difference continues into older age.

There are several theories as to why more women than men are diagnosed and treated for depression:

•Women may be more likely than men to seek treatment. They may be more willing to accept that they have emotional symptoms of depressed mood and feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness.
•Men may be less willing to acknowledge their emotional symptoms and more apt to suppress their depression through the use of alcohol or other substances. In such cases depression can be "masked," or viewed only as alcohol or drug dependency/abuse rather than as clinical depression.
•Women may tend to be under more stress than men. In today's American society women often have to manage a variety of conflicting roles. They have many responsibilities and full schedules at home and work.
•Women may be more prone to depression because of the possible effects of hormones. Women have frequent changes in their hormone levels, from their monthly menstrual cycles, to the time during and after pregnancy, to menopause. Some women develop a depressive illness around these events.

Marital factors: Women who are unhappily married, divorced, or separated, have high rates of major depression. The rates are lower for those who are happily married.

Age: While clinical depression usually occurs for the first time when a person is between the ages of 20 and 50, people over the age of 65may be especially vulnerable.

Previous episode: If you have had major depression once before, your chances of developing it again increase. According to some estimates, approximately one-half of those who have developed depression will experience it again.

Heredity: People who have relatives who have had clinical depression have a greater chance of developing it themselves. Also, having a close relative with bipolar disorder may increase a person's chances of developing major depression.

Risk Factors For Bipolar Disorder-

Bipolar disorder is diagnosed in equal numbers of men and women. It is not known for sure why major depression seems to affect more women than men while mania affects both equally. One reason may be that mania, with its very conspicuous symptoms, is much more easily recognized than depression. Depression may also go unrecognized in men.

Previous episode: If you have had major mania once before, your chances increase of developing it again. Most of those who have had an episode of mania once will have a second.

Heredity: People who have relatives who have had bipolar disorder have a greater chance of developing it themselves. Immediate relatives (parents, siblings, children)of those with bipolar disorder are 8 to 18 times more likely to develop the condition than those not related to people with bipolar disorder. Having a close relative with bipolar disorder may also increase a person's chances of developing major depression

Gud Morning friends,

"A Good heart is better than all the heads in the world."

...a quote that caught my attention.I felt that it is conveying a great message in a simpler way.

One of the basic fact that ties the threads of love between each relationship...

Truely saying,we are loosing our heart in the rush to gain a empowered head.Simply saying,we have now turned into false-hearted personalities.Lost feelings of humanity,having mugged up with lot of equations that finally lntegrates with selfish life goals.

The too little time period of our life,why we just focus into power,prestige,position and pride only?Why can't we listen to the feelings of others?What is making ourself busy that we can't even spend a 5 minutes for our family?Why our ear is closed to the yelp of our dear ones?

And finally what have we gained so far after the cruel ignorance towards others?Or does our profit balance our loss?

Think yourself friends...

From my childhood itself,I wish I were an Intelligent girl.I love to hear,others saying "See that girl,she is very brilliant...Wah..her brain..with such an ease she solve the mathematics...".

Fortunately nobody dare to state such a severe lie.And I continue to be entitled with usual teasing names,for my foolishness.

My well-wishers scolded me for not using even my common sense.All the comments scared me too.I Convinced myself that I was lacking some prime factor of brain.

Something that make one not to repeat the mistakes.Because mistakes are so called faults that done only once(as defined by great people).


Am I right?Should I leave my identity and blindly imitate others?If so who else will play my part in life?
"Yes...I Know how to shut up.I Just don't know when..."

Let me start with this.what do you think of the above quote?

I think it is a true fact.Many times,I used to get into a chaos,whether I should open my mouth or not.

An the another extreme of this.See,when your heart bursting out with feelings,You feel your tongue stick somewhere.You could not utter a single word.

Ya..Life is just like that.Unexpected events comming up Always.Is n't it beautiful?

What is it to live life,as per a pre-scheduled one?What you guys say to that?

Any way I m going to make my view clear.I just hate,planning life.

Now friends,It is your turn.

I am eagerly waiting for your comments.
