Once four students were partying till late night and didn't study for the test which was scheduled for the next day. In the morning, they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty and weird as they could with grease and dirt. Then they went up to the dean and said that they had gone to a wedding last night and on their return, the tyre of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back and that they were not in condition to appear for the test. The Dean was a just person so he said that they can have a retest after three days. They said they were ready.

On the third day they appeared before the dean. The Dean said that as this was a special condition all four were required to be in separate rooms for the test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in last three days.

The test consisted of two question with a total marks of 100.

Q1. Write down your Names. (2 marks)

Q2. Which tyre burst ? (98 marks)

Look beyond what you see..

Have you seen The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata? If you have, do you remember Rafiki telling Timon “Look beyond what you see.”? Timon took the meaning literally and this was really funny to see. But the quote “Look beyond what you see” has a deep meaning.
Hmmm.. Wondering what I am talking about? Well.. I believe that there is something positive, something worth adopting in your life, in every single creature in this world ,which we might overlook at first. So we just need to look beyond what we see.

Let’s talk about people around us. Even those people whom we might not like, have something good in them, something worth appreciating, and something that we might not see because we don’t want to see, but its still there. It’s just the matter of looking in the right way.

Another message conveyed by this quote is that that things/situations are not always as they look. Many times we are deceived by the situations. We "think" about people and judge them biased by the circumstances.. and many times biased by other's opinion about them. However, knowing them can change opinion about them as we come to know how actually that person is.

Look beyond what you see and then you can see the beautiful colors of life everywhere.

First Impression

When we meet someone for the first time, we are left with an impression of that person.. Yes.. "The first impression." Someone (don't ask me who!) has said "First impression is the last impression." Should it be so? Not really!

When we go to purchase a book and we don't have much time, then we just judge the book from its cover and its preface. If it’s good, we assume that the book is good and we purchase it. We don't go through the contents. The actual worth of the book is known only after going through it.

So is the case with humans. Meeting someone for just 10 minutes and judging the person, based on the looks or the way he carries himself, isn’t fair. We might not like this, but more often than not out first judgment about a person is misleading. Looks deceive. People pretend to be what they are not. One needs to be careful.

We would like to categorize ourselves in the category of people who don’t go by first impressions. Still the fact remains that we all are influenced by the first impressions. No doubt..our brain needs to work a lot!! Be careful in letting the first impression to be the last impression.

Live and let live..


A wonderful quote from The Alchemist. And quiet true, isn't it? People are more interested in other's life than their own. I wonder why they can't mind their own business. Many times I am surrounded by people who just want to talk about how others should be. Jobless people!! Why do such people expect everyone to behave and be the way they want them to be? They don't know someone and they start telling stories about them just for fun. There is a difference between having fun and making fun of others. A thin line that shouldn't be crossed. Why do people have misconception about them that they are the best? Why do they think they are superior to others? They comment about the whole world but why don't they ever bother to watch themselves. They feel they are correct. Well.. Everyone thinks that he or she is correct. If not, Osama Bin Laden wouldn't have attacked twin towers. Even he thought he was right. But does what he thinks justify what he did? Of course not. So can we justify people hurting others with their cheap talks because they think they are right? A big no.. with a capital N....

Instead of commenting about others and interfering in their life they should do something to come out of such low standard talks. When someone is not interfering in their life then why should they? Why do they bother about someone (they don't like) so much that they make that person center of their talks. They don't like someone.. Fine.. Stay away.. Why to create a nuisance when the other person is not troubling? They get down to any level. One should first see where he or she stands and then pass judgments about others. No one is perfect. There is always a scope for improvement. Instead of talking about how wrong others are, one should spend some time thinking on where he or she is going wrong. Get a life losers!! Have an idea about your nowhere headed life rather than finding faults in people and unnecessarily commenting on them. Just live and let live!!
