I went to SIES again today. And this time not to meet old friends or to attend an event. I went there to start off a new show we are calling “GST Weekly”. The show will be a weekly digest of everything that happens about in and around SIES GST, Nerul.
I recorded our first episode today with Ketki Ambekar and it will soon be out at rishifter.com/gw/. Also accompanying us in the show is Mrs. Seema Khan, who has been a lecturer and the training and placement officer at SIES for about 4 years now. She has agreed to be in the show regularly and also let us record in the training cell at college.
The main idea behind the show is to discuss news and events that happen in college every week. Also, I hope people start raising issues which they normally don’t. I want people to start asking questions, giving suggestions and just having their voices heard. We want to become the voice of every SIES GSTian.
I had a thought this evening. I wondered why I can’t train my left hand to be as dextrous as my right hand. I sure can. And I have started working on that! Why I like to do such things, and others? It helps me grow.
I haven’t seen a growth as tangible as when I do things going out of my comfort zone.
I want to be able to do a lot of things that I currently can’t. And nothing is stopping me. I have more time at hand than any other person I know. I am motivated. I have all the other resources to teach myself whatever I need to. What’s stopping me? I’ve wondered this for long and haven’t been able to figure out anything yet. But what I’ve discovered, in a reverse-engineering sort of way, is that if I do things in ways I don’t normally do, it energizes me and pushes me to do more. It is more helpful than any self-help book or guru you can find. Listen below as I share my experiences,
It was Saturday when I was at SIES for an event. While coming back from there that evening, I felt a little nostalgic. Well, not just a little. I remember I was with my friend, Rahul, and we were having some interesting conversation and suddenly as I entered the station premises, something stuck in to me. I could feel it you know. Do you ever feel something when you go to places you’ve spent a lot of time in the past? I’ve heard about magnetic power points where intense emotions have occurred frequently for a long time. The environment drops, you see just what you saw in the past everywhere, you hear only what you are thinking and nothing else. I don’t think I need to explain. I hope you will understand.
