The Burden of a Generation Ahead: A Self Portrait

Its not always about having an inferiority complex, but sometimes it do happens so that circumstances arise such that you in spite of being well aware that you are better than the other person, start having an inferior feeling. It has been quite of time for be to be friends with the present generation of some of the most well known and prominent families of the state, and when you come into a close association with such people and start discussing family achievements and history, no matter how big achievement you have, you ought to feel a bit small.
It is usually said that, its is all your hard  work that matters in the long term, but in a real sense, you need something inherited. What is actually common to all the successful tycoons of the present age, its that all of them had someone back in the history setting up everything to have a luxurious life of the forthcoming generations, and the only thing they had to do is expand their horizon. It happens to be quite a dis-satisfactory feeling if you are not mentally strong enough to live with a feeling that, you are one who have to set the bench mark for the entire generation ahead.
The burden of having an the future of the entire generation at your stake. Apart form being the most intellectually active member of the society you also need to be the most mentally strong and the luckiest inherited member of the family. You become the foot setter of whole family, as you do all the firsts in the family.  It becomes immensely pressurising when you are constantly reminded about your fate and responsibilities. 

Sometimes I do feel that you should always befriend with people of your own strata or lower, as you feel the demoralizing effect staying with them, but again at the same time another thought knocks my mind, to do something big, you should start everything big. You need resources. And this is mistake, I believe my parents repent about, allowing me to be in company of some of the high socio-economic as well as well resourced friends. This is so because my demands have grown big too, some of which they can't even dream of. And the worst, me after realizing the fact, even can't resist my temptations.
At this point of time, I have the urge of being someone who make their name in the history, while in reality I am drowning into the pool of destruction. What went wrong for me is actually too early for me to be confirmed, But I do have a regretting feeling of not having a background which is not that prominent enough. Yet, I dream to be someone who can be named later in the generation to be someone.

Wish I could 'FLIRT'

I was in class VII, when I first came across the word ‘flirting’. (This apparently proves my weakness in vocabulary). Anyways, it was my friend Jyotirmoy who was talking about him flirting with a girl. As usual, an innocent me, asked, “ এই flirting মানে কি? ” Which apparently meant, ‘What does flirting mean? What an apt description he gave, he said, it is an act of conveying someone that you love him/her verbally, though you hold no feelings for him/her by heart. Mind it, class VII we were, and we were already discussing how to fake love. That was good old 7 years back, in a phase of time, where at least love was not merely a matter of one night stand. Over the time, Jyotirmoy did excel in the art of flirting on screen, no wonder, he is yet to score a girl, but he has surely excelled. This is an art, an art probably all of the cool dude modern guys surely have good hands on. But what I am more concerned about is actually described in the last part of the last line of th

Life on the Wheels: Mr Ram Kumar

The title might suggest that the post is about some adventurous traveler, who roams the world in a four wheeler exploring thousands of kilometers. Indeed, he travels thousands of kilometers, probably 36000 km a month, yet he is not adventurous traveler, and probably we would never imagine our lives to be like his. Life on the Wheels Meet Mr. Ram Kumar , the coach attendant of the Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express . Mr. Kumar, with just 4 holidays a month, travels all the way from New Delhi to Dibrugarh via Guwahati serving passengers and back. Again the same day he leaves for Jammu with another fleet of passengers and the cycle goes on. Four holidays is just like nothing, a resident of Bihar, it takes him 2 days to reach home from Delhi and unlike the so called posh Rajdhani where he serves; he boards a general sleeper class compartment to get back. Yet, he wears a badge saying ‘Serving with a smile’ and severs to every new face which he meets in his journey without any compla

Love? Arranged? Naa, Semi-Arranged!!

After fighting the battles of Education and Job, most of the youths today ultimately go through a war in their homes regarding their take on Love Marriage or Arranged one. Though exceptions are always there, but generally our life is filled with various battles, the battle for Chocolate , the battle for Excellence in Studies , the Battle for Job and ultimately  the battle for marriage . Unlike the previous generations, where parents used to commit their close friends that 'our dosti will be converted to ristedari', parents these days are way cooler and acts according to the wish of their sons and daughters, though always in some corner of their mind they always long for Arranged Marriage, which seems quite obvious. But the real problem is with us. What are we suppose to choose? The most interesting fact of the present romancing generation is that, almost most of us are associated in multiple relationships. The magazine concept of Playboy, is quite a reality now with
