A song that breaks the walls of language and leave you in tears .

This song would probably leave you in tears with a tinge of that nostalgic love in your heart brimming up to the surface with the old memories. But that’s just me let me know about yours.

For some, context the song gives a glimpse of the story Hotarubi No Mori which translates to “Into the Forest of Fireflies “. The tale is about how a girl who got stranded in a forest meets a spirit, the spirit helps her and they become friends. But a wall exists between them as the spirit could disappear forever if he is touched by a human.

Fair warning, the video does have spoilers but I don’t think it would have any consequence on your wish for watching the movie.

Hotarubi No Mori e tells a beautiful love story, a surreal fantasy dreamed up in a space between hope and truth, between human and soul. Finally, when the dream dissipates, it leaves behind a beautiful memory.

Just do it

A Wednesday, @Campus

Day 3

“Just do it. I should just do it. I feel not like in the mood and do not want to, but I should. Guess I will do something.”

I was not doing a Shia LaBeouf “Just do it” session. I certainly didn’t have a green screen behind me.

Geeks or not. You must have heard of the chaos theory. Fair warning, I am not talking about the game, nor the album, nor the film. I am talking about the branch of mathematics that states that within the apparent randomness of chaotic systems, there are underlying patterns, repetitions, loops and sometimes a moment of order in a system sensitive to its initial conditions. If you are still not interested, ever heard the concept of the butterfly effect. It is derived from chaos theory.

I was introduced to the word procrastination when I was in eighth grade. It is not often that we find ourselves practising things that we were not aware had a particular name. Can I say that I had found myself procrastinating many times since then? I certainly didn’t know I was procrastinating before then.

Nature in a broader sense is the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, and the landscapes of the earth. It is one of the highly complex systems and it is nigh unpredictable. But even in its marvel and mystery, we sometimes see a sense of order to it. But I am not going to talk about the nature of the material world. I find the behavioural nature of each of us much more interesting. The question of what reasons our actions?

Nature can also be defined as the basic or inherent features, character, or qualities of something that was inborn or hereditary often influenced by the environment of its origin. This is why I wanted to talk about the chaos theory and nature of ours.

In essence, even nature, how random and chaotic it may seem when we consider the chaos theory has its own patterns, repetitions and moments of order.

The question that we have to consider is how many times we get stuck in these patterns and repetitions. Imagine bemoaning each day as boring, a repetitive cycle many often fall into. So according to chaos theory, our nature can be traced to time we were growing. So the question that now irks me is whether I can blame all my nature of procrastination on to it.

Today morning, I found myself a bit lazy and hesitant to hit the gym, I haven’t had a shred of physical exercise for some time and had promised some of my friends that I would go with them, but I was starting to feel the non-existent knick in my neck.

If I were to not go to the gym. I would probably fall into a cycle of blaming my upbringing or the bad decision from the past I make. A cycle with no resolution. Then the question would be as to how not to get stuck in a repetitive cycle of such or in some cases how to recognise the momentary order we find in the chaos we live so that the nature we adapt during these moments will define our nature forward.

The actions we take during these moments of order among the chaos of our life will identify our actions in the future. Then the question is what reason could spur us into action.

I was trying to motivate myself to just do it when I got invited to play football by some other friends. In the end, I played football.

Did I achieve a moment of order today?

Start of something new

One Monday, @Campus

Day 1

“First post of the project life concept. Dumb name!! But it might just work.”

It is getting really heated up in the north, I am not talking about the north pole where it is getting warmer, of course, it is getting warmer. But for now, the heat is closer to home. Bilateral relations between India and China has gone cold once again. Hope it gets warm. But not the topic to talk now, I want to try something different.

I always had the intention of blogging, as you can see by the state of this blog. Well, it had not gone too well.

Do you ever fear of an interest turning into an addiction of sort? A random hobby eating away the time of your days or life?

When I started watching youtube, I didn’t even consider for a moment that I would fall to the segment of binge watchers, those who toil their eyes on the screen, plunging into streams of visual imagery. Now I can’t have enough of it. Information at fingertips can be really addictive.

This hurts my time spend on the creative projects that I had taken up many a time. My project on Aegis of madness that I had repeatedly promised to devote myself to, the college courses that I am supposed to be up to date with but whining about my courses and my projects won’t help. Need to step up.

So, in conclusion, this project I am warming up now I hope will make me hunt for new topics to talk or maybe do something with life that would make it mildly interesting to talk of, so it won’t be a drag.

Did this post had the character, conflict, and resolution that is needed for a story?

Transitions

Moving is hard, especially when you have no proper understanding of the new place. Yes, we will have an idea of some kind and mostly some assumptions but they are all so different from the reality. You will keep finding yourself getting lost a couple of times around the block before you get it right.

I am in the same quandary. I just got to WordPress from blogger  and I am already lost in the mess of all the options.

I consider myself as a tweaker and I like the blog themes tweaked to my style.

For that, I will have to teach myself the way around the site.

I will be honest here people. I can’t think of an awesome way to conclude this post.

Have fun.

 

Differential Differentiation

It has been three weeks since I have been selected as one of the core committee members of Pragati, B-fest of Amrita School of Business. The  campaign has kick started and it’s still hectic and no sleep for the wicked has become my  new destiny tag.
But now finally, the corporate brochure is ready and the sponsor hunters have been released. The process had been long and slow. Maybe it was due to our inexperience and we blundered a lot at the beginning. 
Thankfully the seniors were ready to step in and remind us that we were loosing time. We have been bogged by issues of conflicts of ideas and thoughts. And the foremost being the issues of having a B-fest in the shadow of the last Pragati fest which was also conducted on this year on 23rd and 24th of January 2016.
So the question is how we will differentiate the last B-Fest from the current fest. We have a new theme going on, digital compared to the last years business in green.  I hope things will turn out well.
