Life is simple

What I’ve learned in my life is that we need to enjoy life’s little moments. It is so strange that we wish to earn loads of money, but we may have the best of times with only a 100-rupee note in our pockets. We wish to wear branded clothing but we feel most comfortable in the clothes we buy from a flea market. We wish to sit in a five-star hotel with elite people, but we enjoy roadside vendor’s food with friends the most. We wish to own big cars and go on long drives, yet we talk our hearts out only while walking down a long road. We have 64 GB iPods filled with songs but sometimes a song on the radio brings a smile that can’t be compared to anything else. Life is simple indeed; we make it complex by running after what never gives us joy. Love life, take note of little things, for when you achieve the bigger heights, you can look back and smile at what you’ve experienced in life. We just need to take a break and realise that for once.

Moving on to DU’s third cut-off list, I’m glad that I took admission in the course of my choice in a good college because the third list only had one theme and that was ‘CLOSED’. Almost all popular courses have been filled, so students who had taken admission earlier did the right thing. Students who preferred to wait may now find themselves in a bit of trouble finding their choice of course or college. The counselings of various engineering and architecture colleges have also started, and the dilemma stands for me, what do I do? BTech, BArch, BSc (hons) computer science from DU? Only time will tell, till then eyes closed and fingers crossed.
