Day 30 — A Lovely Color But ... Not Edible

Day 29 — Hopes, Dreams and Plans for 2010

Well, 2010 is going to be over quite soon, so then no point in talking about my dreams and hopes for the year and besides I have forgotten what I had planned for in the start. Haha.

Day 28 — Your Favorite Place To Shop

I'm not at all a shopaholic though yet I do shop for the basic necessities of course. I'd count Y-block Defence, Khan Tower and Cavalry Market in my places to shop.

Day 27 — Your Essence Is

Whoa! I'm in Heaven every time I catch a whiff of it. Amazing!

Day 26 — Describe Your Week

From Monday to Friday I have College and then two days off. Mondays are extremely depressive,long and I feel too home-sick. Tuesdays are all about getting settled with the routine. Wednesdays are hectic and I keep longing for the days to rush and the week to end. But at the end of the day I let loose by listening to some good music on the radio. Thursdays are a little cheerful and bring relief as there are less number of classes. Then Fridays, oh blissful, just feel like jumping in the air to think the end of the week is finally here. Saturdays are bound to be my favourite day of the week. Total freedom and relaxing environment of home, and I can rise late and sleep late too. Meaning double fun. Sundays are boring, slow and the dread of the Monday morning lies ahead.

Day 25 — What Are You Waiting For

Oh my... What am I waiting for...? Wel. I'm waiting for the day my fondest desire comes true! =')
Enough said.

Day 24 — A Video Game

Needless to say, Need For Speed is the most popular driving video game of all time. I have too many fond childhood memories associated with it.... *nostalgia*

Day 23 — A YouTube Video

The other day we were studying Piaget’s Stages of Cognitive Development in the Psychology class. Here's a video about the second stage called the preoperational stage.

This stage occurs between ages two and six. Language development is one of the hallmarks of this period. Piaget noted that children in this stage do not yet understand concrete logic, cannot mentally manipulate information, and are unable to take the point of view of other people, which he termed egocentrism.

Another well-known experiment involves demonstrating a child's understanding of conservation. In one conservation experiment, equal amounts of liquid are poured into two identical containers. The liquid in one container is then poured into a different shaped cup, such as a tall and thin cup, or a short and wide cup. Children are then asked which cup holds the most liquid. Despite seeing that the liquid amounts were equal, children almost always choose the cup that appears fuller.

Piaget conducted a number of similar experiments on conservation of number, length, mass, weight, volume, and quantity. Piaget found that few children showed any understanding of conservation prior to the age of five.

Day 22 — A Website

That's tough. Um, I think I'll write about Dad's website. So if you need help with preparing for competitive exams/interviews or if you have like some psychological issue or if you want to take some personality assessment, then you must visit

Hope that helped!

Day 20 — A Hobby of Yours

Um. I guess I could say Blogging... because I blog when I am bored and have nothing else to do. So that's what a hobby is, after all.

Day 19 — A Talent of Yours

Painting! I love to paint! You can see the slideshow of my paintings over the years at the end of all the posts on this page. I work with water-colours and pastels.

Day 18 — Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

Oh yes it does!

Day 17 — An Art Piece

California-born artist Loran Speck draws the inspiration for his still-life paintings from the realist artists of the Renaissance such as Caravaggio, Rembrandt and Rubens. I particularly like this work of his.

Day 16 — A Song That Makes You Cry (or nearly)

Out of Reach by Gabrielle. One hell of a perfect song. ='(

Day 15 — An Ever-Green Poem

This poem touches my heart and makes me want to cry...


by Emily Bronte

Cold in the earth -- and the deep snow piled above thee,
Far, far removed, cold in the dreary grave!
Have I forgot, my only Love, to love thee,
Severed at last by Time's all-severing wave?

Now, when alone, do my thoughts no longer hover
Over the mountains, on that northern shore,
Resting their wings where heath and fern leaves cover
Thy noble heart forever, ever more?

Cold in the earth -- and fifteen wild Decembers,
From those brown hills, have melted into spring;
Faithful, indeed, is the spirit that remembers
After such years of change and suffering!

Sweet Love of youth, forgive, if I forget thee,
While the world's tide is bearing me along;
Other desires and other hopes beset me,
Hopes which obscure, but cannot do thee wrong!

No later light has lightened up my heaven,
No second morn has ever shone for me;
All my life's bliss from thy dear life was given,
All my life's bliss is in the grave with thee.

But, when the days of golden dreams had perished,
And even Despair was powerless to destroy,
Then did I learn how existence could be cherished,
Strengthened, and fed without the aid of joy.

Then did I check the tears of useless passion --
Weaned my young soul from yearning after thine;
Sternly denied its burning wish to hasten
Down to that tomb already more than mine.

And, even yet, I dare not let it languish,
Dare not indulge in memory's rapturous pain;
Once drinking deep of that divinest anguish,
How could I seek the empty world again?

Day 14 — A Non-fictional Book

Too interesting and keeps me engrossed for hours. Basically its about learning methods and in this excellent book Peter Kline spells out how parents, in particular, can use the world’s most fun-filled and effective methods to bring out the "everyday genius" in their children.
Kline is well known for his strong belief that "learning is most effective when it’s fun", and his book sparkles with this concept. Specially recommended as a beginner’s guide to the world’s best learning methods. Maybe I would want to pursue educational psychology because of this book! 5 stars!

Day 13 — A Fictional Book

It's the best novel I've read so far. The character of the hero (Shane) and heroine (Paula) have totally swept beneath my feet. It really goes out to say that nothing can come between the two of you, if you're meant to be. Must Read.

Day 06 — Your Favorite Restaurant

It is certainly hard to name a single dine-out place, anyhow I would name Shezan Regale thats in H-block, Defence. Both dinner and a la carte are available there. Its a great place with good food.

Day 05 — Your Favorite Quote

John Wooden said: 'The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.' And he said it so right. The respect that is generated through this travels down to the children; who do so in return and their off springs practise it and it makes a world of difference. Just one right turn. =)

Day 04 — Your Favorite Time of the Day

Late afternoons are my best time of the day. I'm usually on my own, savouring every bit of my long sought solitude. Keeping things low-key, I often indulge in a novel, play some soft rock/country music. This habitually invokes nostalgia and some poetic juices too. ;)

Day 03 — Your Favorite Sport

It all began with Euro 2004 when football got the better of me and I became its die-hard fan. Though not much of a fan of the Premier League matches, I can’t think of missing an exciting World Cup or Euro fixture.

I had serious affections with my top favourite countries namely Germany, England, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and Greece; until Germany made its way to the Euro 2008 finals and lost to Spain. From then on, Spain is out of the list. Call me sentimental or whatever. Then when the French guy head-butted the Greek person, France went out of the list too. Yes, I’m extremely biased. And then all the good guys in the English team played no more, I lost interest in it too. So yeah, here I end up with the short-listed favourites!

My craziness about football doesn’t end here. I have countless pictures, photos, images, desktop wallpapers of my favourite players and for this I’m not prejudiced, preferring the European teams, I have Kaka, Messi, Drogba, Tevez and the like in my collection too.

And as for winning or losing, favourites remain favourites, don’t they?

Day 02 — Your Favorite Movie

The saddest and the sweetest and the best movie ever. Shane West and Mandy Moore did it so well. =')
And the dialogues are written across my heart.

Day 01 — Your Favorite Song

This song took my breath away when I first heard it. And it does so every time I hear it. Though it's quite tough to pick a single song from a list of above 300 songs but If You're Not The One is 'the' song of my life. Awesome piece of art. Take a listen.
