Why can’t you SAY it?

akhilsethi randomnomics blog life is shortIt’s hard to believe but sometimes relationships suffer just because we don’t want to initiate. I’m surprised to see even people who love each other or are very close wants the other person to initiate or behave as per expectations!

Is it their ego which comes in between to say/ask/request anything OR matching expectations is of utmost importance?

Will you answer these for me?

If you expect anything from someone and you know you’ll be disheartened if that person doesn’t do what you are expecting, why can’t you just say it? Why do you have to wait for the other person’s actions? Is that loved one smaller than the things you expect?

Moral: People (esp. loved ones) are ALWAYS bigger than what they say or how they react…so don’t take their words too seriously. And if you want something from someone, just SAY it. You won’t become smaller or he won’t become bigger. Just SAY it. Always remember… Everybody’s different here. The way you behave or react, it’s not necessary that others would behave in the same manner. Appreciate the fact, SAY it and move on. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY!

Best laptop for multimedia users

Multimedia laptops are versatile, high-performance machines capable of handling gaming, movies, web browsing, specialized programs like Photoshop, and other applications. They are designed to be portable, though they are large enough to contain drives and accessories for many tasks. Most computers considered to be multimedia laptops fall in a mid-range of size, weight, and screen size.
Choosing a multimedia laptop could be a cumbersome job for anyone as there are too many brands that are available in the market with many different features. These days even most of the brands have different laptops in different price range to suit every pocket. One has to do a lot of research while finalizing on one. With so many options and with the introduction of tablets in the decision making process, finding the best laptop to match your needs can be a challenge.

Here’s a cool video which I found on picking up the right laptop according to one’s needs.

 

This video however shows different Sony Vaio laptop categories, but you can anyways check for other brands while you’re in the process of finalizing the laptop.

What makes a good multimedia laptop?
Fast performance: You don’t want time lags or jerky pictures ruining 3D games or high definition (HD) films. For that you’ll want a powerful processor – ideally a minimum of Intel’s Core i5 processor or AMD’s Athlon II range. At least 6GB of Ram should speed things up further. Ram is your laptop’s short-term memory and ensures your laptop doesn’t grind to a halt when running multiple programs at once.
Separate graphics card: A separate graphics card will give graphics performance a boost compared to using the built-in graphics that come with the processor. Look out for Nvidia and ATI graphics cards with their own dedicated memory.
Good sound quality: This doesn’t necessarily mean looking for branded audio link ups with laptop manufacturers, though we have seen some improvement in the quality of these recently.
High resolution display: Look for a minimum 1,600 x 900 resolution screens that should make whatever you’re watching look crisp and sharp.
Blu-ray drive: A Blu-ray reader or writer is often an option you can upgrade to on a laptop if you are buying direct from the manufacturer, an essential for avid film fans.

Hope this post would help you in selecting the laptop as per your needs. Remember there’s no best laptop in the market, but there would be the one which is a perfect fit basis your requirements.

Starting A New Life

akhilsethi randomnomics my new life

Starting a new life is all about taking a big step or I’d call a bold step for the betterment of an individual or people surrounding that individual. This step could result in a big change in one’s life. Change – a good change signifies that we’re moving forward, living better, and giving ourselves the chance to be the best we can possibly be.

This post is about a step I recently took and now just hoping that things would move in the right direction going forward. Before coming straight to the point, let’s just talk about the background.

It’s been more than 3 years I’ve got married with the girl I love the most. I work in Gurgaon and it used to usually take around one hour and fifteen minutes daily for me to reach my office from my home (in West Delhi). And on top of that, it took around two hours for my wife to reach her office (in South Delhi) from our home. Because of this distance, she wasn’t able to spend anytime at home with my family and  hence couldn’t contribute that much to the daily household work as per her liking. Hence, it used to cause a bit of frustration in her as well as my mother as she also expected her daughter in law’s support in everything. Moreover, we were also blessed with a baby boy last year. So, it was kind of becoming very difficult for my wife to give justice to her office work and to manage anything at home including baby’s needs. When situation got a bit difficult to handle, me and my wife took a decision to shift from West Delhi to South Delhi, so that she can get more time at home and look after the baby. Getting a good house on rent in Delhi is not that easy, one has to research a lot. From checking various property websites, talking to friends, family and relatives and to meeting every dealer in that locality, it was really tough for us. With a thorough research of around 6 months, we finalized one house in South Delhi locality which could be good for all us including my parents. Finalizing a house was the first thing and I would say a comparatively easy thing than convincing my parents who lived in West Delhi from past twenty-five years. We both carefully thought about each and every aspect of our parents comfortability and tried to explain our situation in details. With much discussions and our request, our parents agreed and till today me and my wife are really grateful to them. Someone has really said that your parents may not be perfect but they are indeed the most precious gift GOD has given to you! So, really treasure them, yes, till the end of your life.

It’s been around a month that we have shifted to the new place. Though things are going too smooth but yes, I’m sure it will in the due course of time. All in all, I think you just need to stay positive or be optimistic in your life’s journey and everything would fall in place for the betterment.

The LOVE Story

This post is about a person’s love story whom I know from my childhood. His story has inspired me a lot and have made me more confident/optimistic in each and everything what I do. The way I approach things, the way I try to remain calm in difficult situations, almost everything is inspired by his love story and yes, the result. 🙂

I won’t get into too much details but the post will give you a fair idea of all the incidents that happened. So, without further ado, here you go. And, to keep it simple and anonymous, I would use ‘B’ as the boy’s name and ‘G’ as the girl’s name.

So, B was from a so-called big town and G was from a small town. After B passed his schooling, he got admission into one of the engineering colleges in that small town where he met G. G was a simple girl with high ambitions; they both met in the second year of college and fell in love with each other. Their relationship continued till the college got over and on the last day, B proposed the girl. The girl didn’t said yes but told him that she will think and let him know later.

B was optimistic and knew that G was also in love with him but afraid of saying a yes. So, B gave G ample time to think about it. Meanwhile their long-distance relationship continued for 4 months. Suddenly, one day G called B and told him that she thinks she is in love with him. Boy got ecstatic and boarded the next morning bus to the small town to meet her and discuss everything in detail. They both met and this word ‘think’ from the above sentence just got removed 🙂

After sometime, G got placed in one of the reputed companies in the big town. So, their long relationship just became shorted because of the placement and as the time passed by, their relationship became stronger and stronger.

After few years, G’s father started receiving lot of  marriage proposals for her daughter and hence he started pressurizing her to get married. G, then told her father about this relationship he had with B. Here father got furious as she was a baniya and the boy was punjabi and doing an inter-caste marriage would be really bad.

However G tried to convince her father about B, his good family and how she would live happy after she would get married afterwards. After upteem number of requests, her father got convinced and agreed but on certain conditions which were – a) there’s won’t be any big function and b) there’s won’t be much people from B’s family on that marriage venue.

B agreed all this and with all support from his parents, family and friends, on the ‘the’ day, he went to the small town with only ten people in two innovas. During the whole journey from big town to small town, B didn’t utter a single word but when they were coming back after the rituals, B only showed her feeling when they crossed the small town. 🙂

The story inspires me a lot and emphasize on the fact that if you want something very badly, all the world conspires you, helps you in achieving that. You just have to be optimistic / positive towards that thing and in the end you will surely achieve the same.
