Reciprocity is one of my favourite words that I always wish to write or speak about. To return the goodness shall definitely be something natural to a human. But, there have been things that show us the otherwise side of life.
The New Year brings vibrations of positivity as well as togetherness. Millions, who otherwise skip connecting, send their wishes across boundaries and borders. What is so special about this thing called, NEW YEAR?
Careers are unpredictable for two reasons, firstly, there are new verticals and domains coming up; secondly, we have choices to make and passions to pursue. If careers are unpredictable; should we remain unprepared?
Bhagat Singh, the legend who re-defined Patriotism and Love for the Motherland in his own terms is as much unknown as he is popular among masses. What we know of him, seems to be the tip of the iceberg. I read a few pages of his works and felt that I really need to know him more.

He does stand in contrast to Arjuna, but we forget him once the story moves away to bloodshed.
The Epic "Mahabharata' is being considered the comprehensive description of the life of this planet with talks of everything that comes our way from birth to death. From System to Sentiments, from Rulers to Ruled, from Work to War and from Antagonism to Approvals, 'Mahabharata tells about all.
Language cannot be taught; language is learnt! This is the realisation that is dominating the sessions these days. I am raising this disclaimer high when it comes to teaching English to the graduates. They have a need and a huge amount of expectations that we are to fulfil.
A library is a sacred place that one starts feeling like contributing to the place. This is true for those who have been blessed with a good relationship with the Library. This might be a memory from the school days or the college life, Library remains something 'very own'.
