Never Say Never – The Karate Kid – with lyrics

A Very Beautiful song from the movie The Karate Kid.

Loved the song so here are the lyrics and video:

Never say never!
(never, never, never ...)

Justin Bieber
See I never thought that I could walk through fire
I never thought that I could take the burn
I never had the strength to take it higher
Until I reached the point of no return 

And there’s just no turning back
When your hearts under attack
Gonna give everything I have
It’s my destiny

Justin Bieber
I will never say never
I will fight
I will fight till forever!
Make it right
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground.
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up,
Pick it up up up and never say never

Justin Bieber
Ne-never say never
Ne-never say never
Ne-never say never
Never say it, never never say it

I never thought I could feel this power
I never thought that I could feel this free
I’m strong enough to climb the highest tower
And I’m fast enough to run across the sea
ooooh

And there’s just no turning back (oh no)
When your hearts under attack (oh no)
Gonna give everything I have
Cause this is my destiny

I will never say never (never say never)
I will fight
I will fight till forever
Make it right
Whenever you knock me down,
I will not stay on the ground.
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up,
Pick it up up up and never say never

Jaden Smith
Here we go! guess who?
J Smith and JB! (uh huh)
I gotcha lil bro.
I can handle him. Hold up, aight?
I can handle him.

Jaden Smith
Now he’s bigger than me, taller than me
And he’s older than me, and stronger than me
And his arms a little bit longer than me
But he ain’t on a JB song with me
I'll be trying a chill
They be trying to side with the thrill.
No pun intended, was raised
By the power of Will
Like Luke with the force
When push comes to shove.
Like Cobe with the 4th
Ice water with blood.

I gotta be the best, and yes
We’re the flyest.
Like David and Goliath,
I conquered the giant.
So now I got the world in my hand,
I was born from two stars
So the moon’s where I land.

Yeah yeaaah
I will never say never (never say yeah)
I will fight
I will fight till forever!
Make it right
Whenever you knock me down,
I will not stay on the ground.
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up,
Pick it up up up and never say never
(repeat)

Ne-never say never (never say it)
Ne-never say never (never say it)
Ne-never say never (never say it)
And never say never
(repeat)

To the world!

A Quote From A Great Man

“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sight and see the possibilities – always see them, for they’re always there.” – James Allen.

I read the quote above on the ‘common’ dull blue wallpaper with late 90’s design across all the screens in the organization. No one has the right to change their desktop wallpaper but the administrator whenever someone from management orders a change of background to design team and new wallpaper is commissioned.

Quite a process, you must say, but I wonder how many of the 300 odd people around here would have given more than a minute’s of thought to what Mr. Allen said. Reading once, the words seems perfectly in pitch with a gentleman of 21st century. Then I do a small Google on Mr. Allen and it says he was a gentleman born in mid 19th century and died early in 20th century.

Hmmm… here is brief intro of a man who wrote something THAT extraordinary which made me think hard. Mr. Allen quit school to work in order to support his family at 15 as his father, a businessman was murdered. At the age of 39, after being inspired by the works of Leo Tolstoy, Mr. Allen quit his job at some good corporation to settle in some small village to write for the next 12 years till his death.

9 books and a magazine accounts in the portfolio of this man who risked everything to pursue his dream. More, he showed the courage to go against all odds to be remembered almost 100 years after his death. The second thought makes me wonder, how many people of that era would have considered the thoughts and acts of this man rebellious?

Coming back to the quote made by this great man, don’t you think this is the time to take a step towards the dreams or isn’t it asking one to get the freedom to change one’s own wallpaper?

Mr. James Allen – Salute!

If James Bond joins Twitter

The name is Bond, James Bond.

The marathon of watching James Bond movies goes on and this is certainly taking my imagination for granted.

Till now, I have seen the first 12 and last 6 movies of the 007 and closing in for the entire franchise.

So, while looking at all the not-so-super cool gadgets (ahem… when compared to 21st century), I think what if James used the entire internet thing with his flamboyant attitude?

Picture this:

James Bond joins Twitter as @007. He has following of almost every criminal in the world for his whereabouts.

007 Tweets: M caled, asignd to trk dwn osama, afghanstn cms bond.

Osma Tweets: @007 we’ve been expctng u mr.bond, ur rep prcds u.

Obama Tweets: @osama bewre @007 gonna kick ur a$$

007 Tweets: nu gadgets frm Q are cool. I cn c Osama frm ma drone

Q Tweets: @007 whtevr u do, plz dnt distroy nu car, n dont send drone now, it wil drop in light

007 Tweets: was with @ms_sherawat last night, flight ready

Osma Tweets: @007 oh, ur gting ur car too, btw ur drone is down by searchlight tks @Q

M Tweets: @Q u r fired

Shashi Tharoor Tweets: @M @Q @007 @Obama this is a case of hypocrisy shown by M, Q is innocent

Mallika Sherawat Tweets: @007 u r one naughty spy who shagged me. c ya later.

007 Tweets: oh come on @Q @M

he he he!!!

Most people complain that I always write either about day to day activities or something so strange that one has to think hard to look beneath the layers. I fully agree to their views about the pattern of my blog posts.

Here, when I look back to my older posts, I see them as a creative outlet of the strangest thoughts I have based regular happenings in my life. A story or journal is always incomplete if you cannot connect with the protagonist or the writer. A day-by-day activities are something what actually happened, but a complex piece of text explains how it made one feel.

I treat my blog as a friend. This friend of mine is storing life and times of Dushyant. In stories, events, dreams and thoughts. One day there will be no Dushyant but this information or text will be shared by this friend of mine to the world or with anyone who will care enough to read.

Aw man… you are again moving to your suspenseful side.

No!

Yeah… if so, then please cut the crap and tell us what’s up?

Okay! Office work is just fine. This new facility is serving its purpose. I am not taking some additional responsibilities of a group leader for some activities and enjoying it.

Rest cool.

Dreams and Disasters

As the weeks go by, one can sense that the plans, which were thoroughly chalked and oaths taken to follow them, just pass in plain sight. It is not that the desire to go for them has died down or the intensity is lost, but the very fact and notion of ‘hold-it-for-the-time-being’ creeps in and does not allows you to move in the direction of the dreams.

Sometime back I heard a quote from Albert Einstein, “There is a great value in disaster, it gives us the opportunity to start all over again.” in a stage play from IIT, Love in December.

While mulling over the thought of a disaster, and imagining the scenario ‘starting all over again’, I realized that if ever I got a chance to start my life all over again, I’d like to keep it almost the same except a better physic and some more time spent in classrooms.

I think it is odd, even by my standards. 😉

Yes, I am happy in my little world. BUT be cautioned, there is still a lot of scope for improvement.

There lies the struggle and chase of dreams.

007 Marathon and a trip to Barwani

In the days when the mercury is soaring at 45 degree centigrade, it is hard to talk about any other thing.

Last Friday following an impulsive call, I went to Barwani with Priyanka. I just wanted to get out of Vadodara and this was the best I could do. Fairly enough, it was a good decision and in the end, and we returned rejuvenated and refreshed to the harsh weather of Vadodara.

It is not that if Indore or Barwani are lesser hot places these days, but the fact that, Barwani and Indore are always remains dry whenever mercury rises. In case of Vadodara, the humidity level peaks and makes us suffer until late nights.

Back to topic, the trip to Barwani was a fantastic move. Some rounds of Budweiser, lazy noon and family faces made all the travel worth.

For the next trip, the date of inauguration of Abhishek Bhai’s place is shifted to 14th June. I am rescheduling the plans accordingly.

Hey! I got tickets of ‘Kites’, releasing tomorrow.

AND NOW, I am watching the James Bond Movies every evening. I always wanted to see them all in a marathon. Tuesday was Dr. No, Wednesday was From Russia with Love. Tonight, 007 will be back.

PS: We shifted to Gajanan at office. It’s peaceful, calm and good! 🙂

Moving Office Space

On a very special request from a client, one of my project team is shifting to another building with the marketing and HR department from Monday onwards.

This is good news since moving to a new location is certainly going to revitalize the energy and we can carry the tasks afresh in the new environment.

I am getting envious glances from fellow designers here because they feel that I’ll be in a more comfortable position than them.  🙂 I won’t deny their point but just wish to tell them that it is all about willingness to push the envelope. If one can stand for self and prove to be an asset for the working team and can consolidate the position, happiness come following.

Though, as promised by the management, this move is only for the 3 months till they get another office ready in the building where the current development team stays, I feel that this is not that easy and may take longer than that.

I just went through various teams and bid people farewell till the next meeting. I can say that most of the guys around here are pretty nice and good to work with.

The hollow soul

Though not every day, but sometimes the feeling of being lost somewhere when you do not belong crops up and gives an Ariel view of your own life. Recognizing oneself as distant cry from everyone as a stranger seems very natural.

Sitting on office or home computer is the only solution one can think of and this loneliness creeps in your dreams and echoes from the empty soul. What on earth are you doing Dushyant?

I don’t know.

You dream, prey and look for a way out. You remember all those friends of past and promise to meet them again and have the blast of your life. You dream about those golden memories and wish them to come back, knowing the life keeps speeding on and never stops or returns to the point is has crossed.

Everyone says live in today, live the moment, make new memories so that one day, you wish to return here. I cannot promise that. It is so hollow, so empty, so strange. No matter what I do or say, it all bounces back to me. It never lets me in. It’s just the surface which I can feel or see. How one can make memories of shadows or walls.

There are no real people in this world. They are email IDs or cell phone numbers. There is no one in this world which whom you can share a dream. It always stays with you.

Sometimes broken, sometimes burnt or sometime with a hope that it all will change.

Patience, they say, is a virtue. I think there must be a limit to it.

Sometimes, I wish to delete all my social networking accounts and profiles, just wish to throw away my cell phone. If being anonymous is the destiny, so be it.

Just life

Blog things with Himanshu aside, here is an update. I got the increment mentioned earlier on last Monday but not the promotion and increment is just the average and something extraordinary as I was expecting. Nevertheless, it was a good dreaming period about the new designation and more money.

I feel it has been quite a while since I have treated myself well. So, as a token of appreciation to yours truly, a car audio system from Sony was purchased this weekend. YeY!!!

‘You cannot believe your eyes, when 10 million fireflies…’ nice song which I am humming since last 2-3 days.

Abhishek bhai came till Pavagadh and returned Barwani without visiting Vadodara last week. I cannot blame him, though am disappointed, as the heat is really playing spoilsport these days. The temperature in the city and around is almost 42 degree centigrade on an average. Yesterday it was 43 and all the forecasting tools online claiming 42 for rest of this week.

It was HImanshu’s birthday on last Tuesday and at the very hour he turned 23, he came to Vadodara, with a big cake and huge smile. It was a fun little party we had here.

Apart from these things, I watched many notable movies, some for the second time. The Pursuit of Happyness, Million Dollar Baby, A.I., City of God, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and others. Agree that most of the names I took here belong to tear jerker genre but are sure shot one of the better movies made over the decade.

Rest later!
