Career options in army to be illustrated at school level

Thursday, April 26, 2007

The Delhi government is planning to start a programme on career options for school students at secondary and senior secondary levels.

The Education Department would take help from the Indian Air Force (IAF) to make students aware of various the career options available in the armed forces, particularly the IAF. The IAF will coordinate the programme. According to officials, the initiative will give government school students an idea of the different oppurtuntities available after the Boards. The IAF officials made a presentation in this regard to the Delhi Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely on Thursday.

“Most government school students are not aware of the various career options available to them unlike their counterparts in public schools. Apart from imparting education, we would like these students to know the options and avail the opportunities offered,” Lovely told the Hindustan Times. Wing Commander Ashim Kapoor, Joint Director of the Publicity Cell of the IAF, said “This is a social responsibility that we at the IAF are undertaking by presenting IAF as a sensible career choice among the Indian youth.”

He said that the IAF was conducting contact programmes, motivation talks in schools, colleges and universities across the country. He said that so far the drive has been very successful as both girls and boys have shown a keen interest for a career in the IAF in Delhi University.

I think all the schools in India should follow the pattern. Its better that the students will get familiar to the Army opportunities at the school level so that they can work better towards achieving this goal. What do you think about this?

Cricket Fever

None likes to talk of the world cup these days. This has been the most boring world cup ever. It may be because of India’s early way out from the series. Or may be due to the long lasting schedule of the super eight matches.. But now with the semi finals, the discussions have again raised.
The Srilankans were amazing throughout the match. And the result was nothing much different than the expectations. Only thing was a more closer encounter was expected between the two giants.
The South African players have proved their name as “choker”. No doubt Aussies are a better side. But South Africans had many chances to win against them. But they didn’t seem to have any plans to win the world cup. The batsmen put their weapons down in front of Mcgrath and Twait. None except Gibbs offered a little struggle. But after he went out for 39 trying to play a good length delivery by Twait, the Africans side collapsed like a house made up of playing cards. And 7 players have returned to pavilion for as low as 103. There were more expectations from the senior batsmen like Smith, DeVilliars, Kallis and Boucher. But Kallis and Boucher couldn’t even open their account.
Once again, the African side has proved that they can’t handle the pressure.

So now, its almost sure that the final will be played between Aussies and Lankans. And whole India will be hoping for the recurrence of 1996 final. Winning the world cup will be best send off to the legendary all rounder Sanath Jaisurya playing his last world cup.

Go Sri Lanka Go. 110 crore Indians are here cheering up for you. All the best.

Google logo on World Earth Day

I have always been fascinated with the creativity behind the Google logos. And here is a logo published by Google on the occasion of "World Earth Day". Once again, it has been a great creativity to make people aware of the issue of melting icebergs. Hats off to the creative team of Google.

My friend Ankit forwarded me this nice poem. And I found it worth sharing with you all. It expresses the harsh reality of today's world. We have time for everything but for our basic needs. We don't have time for our emotions, for our friends and for ourselves. And only we ourselves can change this. Its time now to think. "Sochne ka waqt aa gaya hai. Ab mat bolna ki waqt nahi hai"

Har khushi Hai Logon Ke Daman Mein,
Par Ek Hansi Ke Liye Waqt Nahi.
Din Raat Daudti Duniya Mein,
Zindagi Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.

Maa Ki Loree Ka Ehsaas To Hai,
Par Maa Ko Maa Kehne Ka Waqt Nahi.
Saare Rishton Ko To Hum Maar Chuke,
Ab Unhe Dafnane Ka Bhi Waqt Nahi.

Saare Naam Mobile Mein Hain,
Par Dosti Ke Lye Waqt Nahi.
Gairon Ki Kya Baat Karen,
Jab Apno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.

Aankhon Me Hai Neend Badee,
Par Sone Ka Waqt Nahi.
Dil Hai Ghamon Se Bhara Hua,
Par Rone Ka Bhi Waqt Nahi.

Paison ki Daud Me Aise Daude,
Ki Thakne ka Bhi Waqt Nahi.
Paraye Ehsason Ki Kya Kadr Karein,
Jab Apane Sapno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi.

Tu Hi Bata E Zindagi,
Iss Zindagi Ka Kya Hoga,
Ki Har Pal Marne Walon Ko,
Jeene Ke Liye Bhi Waqt Nahi.......

My Convocation

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

My convocation took place on Tuesday, 3rd April. Did I tell you about it? Oops.. Seems I forgot!! It was ok. Very less interesting than my expectations. Only good thing was I got my degree certificate, I got a snap in convocation gown and I was with my friends after a long time.
Btw, here is my snap in the convocation gown. I know it has come bad. But you can imagine me waiting in queue for 1 hour in a hot afternoon for this snap. And morover, there was no mobile coverage which irritated me even more.

Tikona: My Favorite Trekking Place

Saturday, April 14, 2007

It has been long since I had been to any trek. These days I'm missing the treks, the Sahyadris, the magnificient forts and the beautiful nature. When I think of treks, first fort that comes to my mind is Tikona. So here is some information about this favorite place of mine.

The mountains on Deccan plateau in the vicinity of Bor Ghat have many ancient caves like Karle, Bhaje, Bedse, Bhandara and Shelarwadi. The forts of Lohgad, Visapur, Tung and Tikona were built in order to defend these caves. This region also has a number of Ghat-routes connecting the ports on the western coast to the cities located on the Deccan plateau. These forts served as protectors of these important trade routes of ancient India. As the caves found in this area belong to the Buddhist and Heenyana era, it is believed that these forts must have been built around 800 to 1000 AD.

Fascinating Spots:
The whole fort can be seen in an hour's time, as the area is not so wide. Turn left after passing the entrance. In a short while a cistern and cave can be seen. About 10 to 15 persons can be accommodated in this cave. However, it is not suitable for a stay during monsoon. The path going uphill adjacent to the cave takes us to the entrance to the bastion. The steps in this stretch are a bit tiring. One can see cisterns on the right and fortification on the left after passing through the entrance. After taking a few steps straight ahead, a trail climbs down on our right. Here too are a few cisterns. Return back and join the main path, which takes us to a stretch of broken steps. A climb uphill brings us to a Mahadev temple, behind which is a big moat. Circumventing this moat takes us to the flag-post. From the bastion one can have a view of adjacent fort Tung, Lohgad, Visapur, Bhatrashi hill, Morse hill, Jambhuli hill, Pauna region and Fagne dam. Thus, the whole of Mawal region is visible from fort Tikona.

How to reach:

The main route to the fort is from the village of Tikona Peth. To reach this village, alight at Kamshet, which is two stops ahead of Lonavala on the Mumbai- Pune rail route. From Kamshet railway station, take a bus / shared private vehicle (jeep) to Kale colony. One can also get a vehicle to reach Tikona Peth from Kale colony.
A bus at 08:30 a.m. at Kamshet bound for Paund or Morsay is convenient for reaching Tikona Peth. From Tikona Peth the fort can be reached in about 45 minutes. This straight route is quite simple and not at all tiring. After passing through the entrance door, a path leads towards left and takes us to the citadel in about 20 minutes.

Outing.. After long time

Saturday, April 07, 2007

Today had been a great evening. Had been to an outing to a place "Sai", around 8 km from Latur. I had been to this place before too. But today, we had been there for long long time.
Actually, we (Me and Ghansham) were planning to watch a movie. But we didn't get any show at PVR. So Ghansham suggested that we should go to Sai. And we started towards Sai. It took around 20 minutes to reach this place.

There we had some time in the garden and then shifted towards the river. We got two sugercanes from a neighbouring farm and moved towards a small bandhara constructed on
the river. It was fun going there through thorny bushes ;-)Then we sat there for around 1 hour and discussed a lot of things. After that, we went a corner side of bandhara to watch the sunset. And it was real fun to watch sunset there. Atleast, its better than watching through concrete jungle :-)
It had been long since I had gone out with some friend and spent so much time away from all worries and tension. So this outing is more special for me. Sitting on the bandhara leaving your legs in water, enjoying the sweet sugercane, wandering on the dusty road and the bike drive. Everything was so much joy. Just fantastic.
If you ever happen to come to Latur, let me know. I will take you to this fantastc place.
