The Day when i got selected

 It has been around 10 days since i was waiting for final results of Civil Services Exams -2010 .The level of anxiety was rising day by day and it reached just near the breaking point. Continuous hard work of 4 years with no outcome at all forced the flow of negative thought into strong castles of my mind .The person who boast about never getting tense was changing and it was bothering me since i hate being tense .

On 11th may it was almost sure that result will be declared at around 3pm . And due to tension of result i was not able to concentrate on my studies. In such times i generally  fall back to AOE and i played non stop since morning . And the time passed slowly and around 3pm we got to know that result has been declared. my heart beat rose to maximum possible bearable level . I opened PIB website for results  but the pdf file was not opening , i kept trying again and again but with no success . Meanwhile mom called , She had no idea about result and i don't want to give her tension so i asked various nonsense things just to avoid the result related enquiry from her .

15 min passed and still i was not able to open the file. At about 3:15 one of my friend sankalp came and said

Sankalp : Result aa gaya hai
Me : I know yaar per saali website khul hi nhi rahi hai
Sankalp : try karte raho
Me : hmmm

After trying few more minutes

Sankalp : aapka full name gaurav yadav hi hai
Me : haan
Sankalp : aur roll number kuch 024 karke
Me : haan ( i was getting some idea ki sayed selection hua hai )
Sankalp : Mere lappy pe file khuli hai aur aapka name hai list me
Me : Kya baat kar rahe ho , chalo tumhare room pe chal ke dekhte hian

Then we went running to his room and saw the result, my name was indeed there .That moment was like ....i can't explain in words. Immediately i called my dad and informed him then my sis an then all other person .I was very much relieved and my self belief became stronger . Here i want to say one thing , this time i choose an  old white shirt of my dad rather than any new shirt of mine for interview and i think that shirt proved lucky for me :).

And now it was party time and pouring of phone calls . I attended about 50-60 calls within span of 3hrs.The thing i learned from this episode of my life is that fortune favours the brave and persistent hard work does pay in one or the other way .

कर्ण और कृष्ण का संवाद - रामधारी सिंह 'दिनकर'

Following is excerpt from poem Rashmirathi written by Ram dhari singh dinkar. Karna reply to Krishna when he told story of his birth and ask him to join pandava side. सुन-सुन कर कर्ण अधीर हुआ, क्षण एक तनिक गंभीर हुआ,  फिर कहा "बड़ी यह माया है, जो कुछ आपने बताया है  दिनमणि से सुनकर वही कथा मैं भोग चुका हूँ ग्लानि व्यथा  मैं ध्यान जन्म का धरता हूँ, उन्मन यह सोचा करता हूँ,  कैसी होगी वह माँ कराल, निज तन से जो शिशु को निकाल  धाराओं में धर आती है, अथवा जीवित दफनाती है?  सेवती मास दस तक जिसको, पालती उदर में रख जिसको,  जीवन का अंश खिलाती है, अन्तर का रुधिर पिलाती है  आती फिर उसको फ़ेंक कहीं, नागिन होगी वह नारि नहीं  हे कृष्ण आप चुप ही रहिये, इस पर न अधिक कुछ भी कहिये  सुनना न चाहते तनिक श्रवण, जिस माँ ने मेरा किया जनन  वह नहीं नारि कुल्पाली थी, सर्पिणी परम विकराली थी  पत्थर समान उसका हिय था, सुत से समाज बढ़ कर प्रिय था  गोदी में आग लगा कर के, मेरा कुल-वंश छिपा कर के  दुश्मन का उसने काम किया, माताओं को बदनाम किया  माँ का पय भी न पीया मैंने, उलटे अभिशाप लिया मैंने  वह तो यशस्विनी बनी रह

Scheme for creation of National Optical Fiber Network for Broadband connectivity of Panchayats

The Union Cabinet recently approved a scheme for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing Broadband connectivity to Panchayats. The objective of the scheme is to extend the existing optical fiber network which is available up to district / block HQ’s level to the Gram Panchayat level initially by utilizing the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF). The cost of this initial phase of the NOFN scheme is likely to be about Rs.20,000 crore. A similar amount of investment is likely to be made by the private sector complementing the NOFN infrastructure while providing services to individual users. In economic terms, the benefits from the scheme are expected through additional employment, e-education, e-health, e-agriculture etc. and reduction in migration of rural population to urban areas. As per a study conducted by the World Bank, with every 10% increase in broadband penetration, there is an increase in GDP growth by 1.4%. NOFN will also facilitate implemen

किसको नमन करूँ मैं भारत? - Kisko Naman Karu Mein Bharat?

A poem dedicated to the nation written by Ramdhari Singh "dinkar"... तुझको या तेरे नदीश, गिरि, वन को नमन करूँ, मैं ? मेरे प्यारे देश ! देह या मन को नमन करूँ मैं ? किसको नमन करूँ मैं भारत ? किसको नमन करूँ मैं ? भू के मानचित्र पर अंकित त्रिभुज, यही क्या तू है ? नर के नभश्चरण की दृढ़ कल्पना नहीं क्या तू है ? भेदों का ज्ञाता, निगूढ़ताओं का चिर ज्ञानी है मेरे प्यारे देश ! नहीं तू पत्थर है, पानी है जड़ताओं में छिपे किसी चेतन को नमन करूँ मैं ? भारत नहीं स्थान का वाचक, गुण विशेष नर का है एक देश का नहीं, शील यह भूमंडल भर का है जहाँ कहीं एकता अखंडित, जहाँ प्रेम का स्वर है देश-देश में वहाँ खड़ा भारत जीवित भास्कर है निखिल विश्व को जन्मभूमि-वंदन को नमन करूँ मैं ! खंडित है यह मही शैल से, सरिता से सागर से पर, जब भी दो हाथ निकल मिलते आ द्वीपांतर से तब खाई को पाट शून्य में महामोद मचता है दो द्वीपों के बीच सेतु यह भारत ही रचता है मंगलमय यह महासेतु-बंधन को नमन करूँ मैं ! दो हृदय के तार जहाँ भी जो जन जोड़ रहे हैं मित्र-भाव की ओर विश्व की

Few lines by me for my Dearest sister

At the age of one year.....   I knocked the heaven's door.... God asked " My son , r you not happy on the beautiful earth where you have your angel mother and divine father" I replied " But i don't have anyone like other children to play with and spend time " God Said " Don't worry , I will make sure that you have the best sister on the earth " Two days later i again knocked the door..... God asked " now what happened" I replied " I need a friend too as other people on the earth have" God said " My dear son, your sister will be your best friend" Down the line after many years ...during my teenage I once again knocked the door..... God asked " r u still unhappy " I replied " I am very happy with my life but there is no one around m to understand me and my thoughts " God said " oh !! that's not a problem , it will b again your sister, who shall unders
