As Busy As A Bee???

I'm not the President of this country. Nor the Prime Minister. I'm not the Head of any Organisation/Organisation Nor am I an Entrepreneur. I'm just a Normal, Engineering Student.

Its a general opinion that people who say they do not have enough time, are poor managers of time. I have all the time in the world for me, to carry on with my tasks, I even find time to help out others with their work. But still. according to my friends, they say "Ash is always Busy, Busy, Busy".

Don Ritchie

If you thought I was referring to another Don Corleone( The God Father, Mario Puzo) in the making. So be it. A few days I came across an article titled                    

Don Ritchie, 83, lives in a street right across the harbor in the Gap, a rocky cliff at the top of the Sydney Harbor. This Gap is considered as Australia’s most notorious suicide point. For around 45 years, Don is always on the lookout for any abnormal activity in the cliff. And do you know what he does when he finds someone headed to the suicide point? He gives them a warm smile and invites them over for coffee at his place, talk to them in a friendly manner and convince them that putting an end to their life is not the answer for everything and that life has to move on. He has succeeded in saving more than a hundred lives.


I decided I would write this post when I was preparing for my Networks Exam. What happened was, there was this topic regarding the Error Control Mechanisms during Transmission of Packets. I was a little confused with the acknowledgment numbers and this is how I solved it.

Positive acknowledgement is followed by a number, which indicates the number of packets received (how many) and the number the next packet to be sent (which). Negative acknowledgement is followed by a number which indicates the packet which has to be retransmitted. When I read this sentence first, It was Greek and Latin to me, not anymore.

How fair is it?

1.When mom makes me a hot cup of coffee, I wait till it gets cold and read papers and talk over the phone and finally just gulp it down, but when I'm given a lukewarm coffee in the cafeteria, I complain loudly.

2.I dont help my father when he asks me to, but I expect my children to help me even if I dont ask them to. 

3.I laugh it off when a studious friend of mine offers me important notes, but before the exam I blame the friend for being selfish for not lending me the notes.

4.If someone fell on the road, I wouldn't go and help them, but if I fell on the road and no one comes to help, I say  that the Everyone was being rude. (applies only for some)

5. I watch TV with  maximum volume unmindful of what others are doing, but when I have exams and my sibling watches TV even with moderate volume, I say that my sibling is not being considerate.

6. Its not a crime if I chat with my friends while classes are going on, but  I mind when my friends talk ,when I take a seminar. 

7.When I am standing in a queue and somebody tries to join in between, I get angry. But when there is a big queue and I try to join in between, Its not wrong on my part.

these are just a few instances and still I call myself to be "PERFECT". How fair is it?

** I've used 'I' everywhere instead of 'We' so that it would make us think if any one of these were true in our case.

The power of a smile :)

Its 6 am in the morning. I snooze my alarm and go back to sleep. Mom comes to my room, half an hour later and shouts at me to wake up and get ready for college. Holy Christ! As always I’d overslept even today, cursing the alarm I sleepily walk out of the room, only mom was right and I was indeed late. I freshen up and have a strong cup of coffee along with a good dose from mom who reprimands me for staying up late and watching the SRK movie.
