Because of APJ...

Pic- Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam and Dr.Sayeed Hasnain(VC U0H)

I was woken up early in the morning(not exactly) as I got a telephone call from HCL Business executive who called to tell me that that his technicians would repair my laptop wi-fi hardware. After few hours, the HCL technicians dropped in to my room but our hostel power line had gone off so nothing could be done! Another gentleman, along with myself who was also having wi-fi problem and the two HCL Technicians decided to move our work to MH-C where my two colleagues were waiting for us. As power line could not be retrieved even in Men’s Hostel –C, we the four laptop wi-fi hardware victims, proceeded to our University Library where we would have power supply and internet facilities. Our technicians started their works but it could not be finished within an hour so we ended up spending the whole day in the library premises. When we got back our laptop, it was already 4:30 P.M. so we had our untimely lunch at shopping complex. I hurriedly went down to my room and took bath as quickly as possible. Then, I hurriedly proceeded to the DST Auditorium to see our Former President of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam who had come to our campus as a Chief Guest at the University Achiever's Award and Inauguration of Centre for Nanotechnology, University of Hyderabad.

Pic-Crowd shouted to open the doors

When I reached to the DST Auditorium it was already crowded. The policemen and security guard were in line all the way, I opened my camera and entered inside the gate, the guards on duty gestured me to stand in the queue that had already been formed, but as I could not find a space for myself in the line I headed towards the ladies line where I hoped I could capture APJ’s pictures as he arrived. Unexpectedly, the Police chief came to me and angrily asked me “What do you want?” Before I could reply his constables hastily pushed me by the arms and brought me back to the crowd. I lost my cool and shouted to the constables, not that it made any sense! One Khaki walla spoke in Hindi and gave me a good scolding, I requested him not to speak in Hindi as I couldn’t understand but he said, “This is Bharaat and you have to understand!” I can’t help it if I don’t understand! I looked at him and said, “This is our university; do not push me like this!” But then he was not listening to me at all. The crowds watched us as my face got red with anger and my heart beat turned to full speed. It was my first time clash with a policeman in a public place. Though it was a bad experience, I now realize the rudeness and loutishness of Cyberabad Policemen. It’s OK, they’re just doing their duty, I do not blame them but it will always be a bad memory and an unforgettable experience of my life!!

Pic- the doors are opened at last!

My point is- if the Police Inspector had asked me properly my intentions or the reason why I was standing in the corner side things would not have gone wrong, his constables as well would never have disgracefully forced me back to the crowd. I am just an innocent Student of the campus, before this incident I never thought that policemen could be such big idiots! Luckily, I am educated enough to salute VVIP and respect national leaders. I feel very sorry for those Policemen who misconceived us with Naxalites or fucking terrorists, we are just university students not barbarians. Do the Policemen have the rights to interfere wildly like they did to an innocent person? I pray for those blatant Policemen so they may use their rights and propagate their duties in a right way.

The VVIP then arrived, due to security reasons all the auditorium doors were locked inside but the crowd started shouting asking the guards to open the door. At last, we entered the auditorium. All the doors were fully crowded but by chance I was able to enter through the right door so I could finally click Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam’s pictures live! His speech was simple yet interesting, lovely and memorable. It sounded simple but transcended a deep echo in our hearts. He talked about nano technology, he talked about the fact that peacock feathers could never change color even if it fell from its body. It may be used for any purpose. He said that its originality could not be washed away and that was a simple example of nano technology. I am not from a science background and am not interested in science and technology but because of APJ now I came to understand what nano technology is. Thank you Sir!

Another memories from Mizoram

Last time I've posted some pictures from my home place -Mizoram that were exclusively taken by me. But now the following landscape pictures are mostly taken by my elder and younger brothers. I am very glad to them because whenever they go out with camera they used to capture some beautiful pictures/scenery as much as they can and save it in hard disc for me as usual i often brought back to hostel when my vocation ended. Here are the landscape pictures have a nice view:-

Memories from Mizoram

I am not a professional photographer but i love photography! When i went home to Mizoram during my vacation i tried to capture various features of my place and its beautiful scenes. No doubt, these pictures rightly reveals my low level in photography and i could not handle my cam beyond this level! if anybody would like to suggest me for a better photography, i would sincerely say 'You are Welcome!' ....Please have a look..

Amanda (U) light of my life

In my lifetime i never know who is Amanda and i never meet her also, but few months back i'm in touch with Don Williams famous song titled with 'Amanda' and what i can share here is "'It's nice to listen when you are in mood!"

As usual, in order to get more details about 'amanda' i'm helpless again! at last, through net search engine i've got some information:-

Amanda: The name Amanda is a baby girl name. The name Amanda comes from the Spanish origin. In Spanish the meaning of the name Amanda is: From the Latin word amanda, meaning "lovable."
Amanda is a Latin gerundive name meaning "(female) that must be loved" or "worthy of love". In the majority of the seventeenth century, the freshness of Restoration drama in England included the creation of bright new character names, especially for women. Most of them had a Latin root. The name "Amanda" first appeared in 1212 on a birth record from Warwickshire, England, and five centuries later the name was popularized by poets and playwrights. (

Now, i know who is amanda and i think i will still love this song too!!

I've held it all inward Lord knows I've tried
It's an awful awakenin' in a country boy's life
To look in the mirror in total surprise
At the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes
Amanda (U) light of my life fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
Amanda (U) light of my life fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
[ guitar ]
There's a measure of people who don't understand
The pleasure of life in a hillbilly bandI got my first guitar when I was fourteen
Now I'm over thirty and still wearing jeans
Amanda (U) light of my life...
