Many Many times I had asked some questions to me. Which came from some inner deep thoughts, some deepest feelings of unsolvable problems and quest. I was in deep feelings of nothingness in me. It happened quite often in my world of feelings. But truly very little options I got where I had some opportunities to think about those things.
Today, I have watched a very short video clip titled “The Quest For Meaning”. I am amazed that I should say it is one of the most amazing 10 minutes video where I got the thoughts of my quests in life. I know the quest is an urge inside which comes from some more deep sources.
I realize “Ignorance comes our first jail”. To be free, I need to free myself from my EGO. Amazing thinking!! Because, I realize the affects comes from the ego, this is very problematic.
“You don’t know what is freedom,
If you don’t know what discipline is.” ― Tariq Ramadan

Few days back, I found a nice video in the facebook. It was regarding the ‘Creativity’ thing. We all know, how tough is to create something! Even when I sit to write a blog post, I feel like I am suffering from fever 😀
In our childhood, often I wished to be superman, captain planet, batman, robin hood, spider-man and some other of my fantasy heroes. I wished to be many things in life– Pilot of an plane, Captain of a ship. Rather I never thought to be a Software Engineer!

There are many things in life about which we are bothered. We often sit to count which things we deserved but we didn’t get. Sometimes I felt so “ill-fated” for not getting many things in life as I worked hard for them. Sometimes I am so pained for having a ligament injury in my knee. Once in my adolescent days, I even thought of not keeping my life anymore….
But there are some incidents that could make us feel different, like I did. Life has always many chances… I heard in my childhood, don’t know whose said it–
Every sunrise offers a second chance.
And another thing quotation I liked–
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle

Yesterday, I got an email from one of my elder sister, attached with a nice story… I am posting that nice, fascinating story here… Hope you will like it. Morevoer, It might seem common to many of you. Though, I wish to share, that is it! 🙂
In addition, I have also collected some other quotations of Arthur Ashe. I’ve put them at the bottom of the post.
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: “Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease”?
To this, Arthur Ashe replied:
“The world over — 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis,
500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals,
when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD ‘Why me?’.
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD ‘Why me?’ ”

This morning, I was checking my facebook, and found a link to an image. Being interested, I clicked on, and found some words of Chetan Bhagat….
I liked the advices, or rather motivations 🙂
I didn’t know the man, Chetan Bhagat, before this morning… reading some good words of him, I googled and found him as a writer… A well-known writer, having a nice website… here goes the link to his bio
Anyway, My concentration or focus was not in him, but his words…
Let me tell the cream part I liked,
Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life. I used the word balanced, before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace and all in good order. there is no point of getting promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts….
Don’t take life seriously, life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity….. Do we really need to get so worked up?
Bunk a few classes, scoring low in couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, enjoy with your friends, fall in love, little fights with your loved ones…
We are people, not programmed devices
Don’t be serious, be sincere…

I took a short break from blogging for my undergrad final exams. The exams were finished by the grace of Almighty. But the thesis work is left still…
I am to go for the Lab in the early morning, I come back to Hall for an hour of lunch break, and then again I go to the Labs and come back while it is almost dark all around. All day long with the computing devices..
My thesis supervisor is the Head of the department of CSE of my university KUET. He is a superb intellectual and a good person. His guidance is so good and we are happy with it 🙂 Oh I forgot to mention that I have a partner too who is of the same batch!
Well, I am delighted today. And therefore I have come to blog. Just half an hour ago, we (me and my partner) have innovated something new in the world of our technological world! 😀 That is, we are about to reach our target of the thesis work. While we started this journey a year ago, it was just a dream! But now, it has come to a reality!
I know we’ve far way to go before we stand for the “presentation” on the completion of “Undergrad Thesis” in front of our teachers’ panel. Though, I know in this evening we have just crossed a barrier in the way to impossible!
Wish and pray for me, okay? 😀
And, let me finish with a wonderful dialogue of the great founder of Microsoft Corporation, Mr Bill Gates:
Whenever there is hard work to be done, I assign it to the laziest man as he is sure to find an easy way of doing it. Be lazy, think crazy.
I know I am so irregular these days. But hope you could feel the causes.. So, don’t leave me, stay connected with me!
Here I am going to share some quotations of Napoleon Hill, the famous American author. At my High school time, I was pretty impressed and influenced with some of his great quotes.

First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. — Napoleon Hill
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness. — Napoleon Hill
You will be succeeded if you become success conscious. — Napoleon Hill
Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action. — Napoleon Hill
Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind’s eye, and you will be drawn toward it. — Napoleon Hil
When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve. — Napoleon Hill
