My First Crush

       Let me tell you a short story from my past, a short story that would be similar for many other people as well. Well, it's more of a memory than a story this is the story of my first crush. Like all the first things I remember most things about crush but as it happens for me nothing came out of it sure but feelings and emotions are like that Stupid they don't understand the logic.

        I was 16 years old and met her in the tuition class. I was this nerdy, thin, dark, underconfident kid and she was beautiful, fair and cute and all that. Of course, we became friends after few days and the classes became enjoyable and I was eager to join the class and paid full attention and it didn't hurt that the trainer was good and we learned a lot from the classes as well.

        No names yet or ever because what's the point now also no need to be hung up on the names, she was beautiful and I was smitten. Well you know even 16 I was still a kid and so was she so used to dress as such in frocks etc. There was another girl in the class and two other guys and I was friendly with all and it's more than likely that other guys also had a crush on her. But I only knew about myself. I had started writing few poems by this time and during this time I wrote my first romantic couplet but, no, not going to write them here.

        I was young and stupid, I was happy in our day-to-day interaction and would walk together after the tuition class and it was enough for me. One day I blurted out - 

"You should wear Indian clothes sometimes."

"Why?" She asked

"I don't know, I just wanted to see you in Indian clothes."

"OK, I will see" She replied

    A few days later we were walking back home after the classes and suddenly we were stopped by a couple of guys. And of course, they threatened us telling us to stay away from the girls and my friend asked them why should we do so, and thump a slap hit him and another one for me, my first and last slap ever from someone other than family.

    We never saw the idiots again and our routine continued and now I would sheepishly like to tell that I don't remember if it was the new year or the end of our tuition classes but long story short we decided to celebrate the day/evening at the tuition class and I took a camera with me and it was a fun evening and one more thing. She wore a suit (Salwar-Kurti) for the first time in the classes, my request for an Indian dress and she looked stunning as usual. We enjoyed the snacks, danced away on the latest songs for the time. It was was many years ago I am 38 years old now so the camera was a Point and shoot analog camera with a 36 roll reel. No cell phones, no internet, and no social media. 

        Soon the classes were over that was our only meeting point and after that, we never met again. Years later I tried searching for her on Facebook but haven't had any success, but I still have the photos from the evening and though there were only 4-5 pics, at least they are there. It is just a memory now, a great memory but memory nonetheless. I thought I saw her in a Gurgaon mall after many years but before I could call her name she was gone from my view. RG you are my first crush and this would be the first time I have narrated this story.

Call it what you want

                    So I like the new update to Blogger and all the new features it has brought along. Most of all I like the new and easy way to add the new fonts to the editor earlier I had to modify the font name in HTML to use that font now I added all the wonderful fonts for use later.  I am actively using Grammarly to proofread my writing in real-time and it's a fairly good tool even in the free version.

        It's just another post for keeping the blog alive and also to share my thoughts, I am not talking about any particular issue here may be a new post for that but apart from that life is okay and lonely playing a lot of games that are more of Visual Novels than a game but I love to enjoy them and most of them have great stories and I have liked most of them and few have made me cry as well, after all, they are novels and yeah these are Adult or Porn games but they come in all shapes and sizes and I am playing the highly rated ones and have found some real gems and maybe I would share talk about them in a video or rather would create a new youtube channel for them.

           Life is strange, I know it's the name of a nice game but still, that's true as well but talking about the game Visual Novels aren't the only games I have been playing I also finished the PC version of Horizon: Zero Dawn, I had already played it on on PS4 Pro but playing it on my PC with great graphics and the faster frame rate was too good to miss. If you haven't played it then do not miss the chance and grab it on Playstation 4 or the PC, it's also fairly cheap on Steam now. Also if you haven't played the "Life is Strange" series of games them try them they are Adventure games. There are 5 games in the series and it was released in episodic form. One game "The Amazing Adventures of Captain Spirit" is available for free so there is no reason to skip that also most of the time the first episode is available for free so that you may try and then decide if you want to get further episodes or not. These games focus more on the story rather than graphics and this series of games all are based around people gaining some abilities. 

             And just like that, the update became a talk about the games but why shouldn't it this is taking most of my time nowadays more than reading after all a Visual Novel is also reading and I am reading that a lot but unfortunately can't track that on GoodReads :) I will tell you a secret I found the porn games by accident but now I enjoy their story part more than the porn part and enjoy stories in fact many games allow a decision-based storyline and I have played those games like a romantic movie and loved the experience, and then after few months playing with a walkthrough to get the best endings that's also something I do rather than struggling with myself I would rather use cheats or walkthroughs after all I have got only limited time like everyone else. Currently, I am playing "Retrieving the Past" created by MrKnobb it's again a visual novel that has been released so far in 3 seasons and it's an action-adventure visual novel with great graphics, it renders but very realistic and like most similar games there are few animations. 

         So far so long then people don't wanna keep on typing, take care and enjoy the week.

Here we go

Here we go again, another day and another post full of ramblings and that ought to happen after all a thought piece is just that, something is written from your thoughts and we all know that we can't control our thoughts and it's one of the great mysteries that scientists have devoted decades to understand and still isn't near finding it out. Well, we would leave the talks to scientists and research with the scientists, and let's talk about normal life, something that you and I live through.

The new normal, work from home, only go out for essentials, wear a mask when out, etc. Nowadays I only go out in select cases one scenario would be if I need to get supplies or eat something and the second is if I have to go for photography. I am happy to say that for the last two Sundays I have been able to go out for photography again. Last Sunday it was a Photowalk and yesterday it was a small fun little session with a friend and model.

Another normal is how the time is passed currently it's either live cricket or highlights, little reading, a lot of gaming, and some youtube or some other streaming site. I might have mentioned it but here I am enjoying Visual Novels how days so that can be considered reading if so then it's going great but if you talk about actual books that are going on super slow nowadays.

Also, I like this font, I love the new update to the site done by Google and the option to add all these fonts earlier I had to change the font in the HTML code now I have added so many wonderful fonts. So till next time, Enjoy!

Well, Hello There!!

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Well, Hello There, yes you, the person reading this, how are you doing? I am in limbo and just enjoying the fruits of others' labour and enjoying all the different kinds of media and a lot of wonderful stories. My last blog post here was last year on 20th March just before the lockdown, and so far the status quo has continued, and it looks like life is going to change in more than a few ways. During this time I have read fewer books than I would have read in a normal year as the bulk of my reading was done during my commute to and from the office and that is gone now. 

I have finished many games, started playing more games on my PC rather than my PS4 Pro, discovered an entirely new type of games and enjoyed them so so much that I lost my sleep and appetite for about 2-3 weeks, I still enjoy those Visual Novel games but no longer play them for all the time.

I got a new Internet connection by Airtel and it's an Xtream fiber connection with speeds of 200 Mbps download and upload and it's unlimited to boot. I just love the connection before this I was using Den broadband for the longest of the times with 100 Mbps download speeds that were very good but the issue was that it had a FUP of 800 GB and then the upload speed was just 5 Mbps that wasn't enough for me as I still plan to continue my youtube channel.

Oh, yeah! in this lockdown period I also finally uploaded few videos to my youtube channel. But like most things, the last video was uploaded on 31st March last year and so far I still have to produce the next video. Along with laziness, there were few issues that were impacting the audio quality, hopefully, that has been fixed now and soon I would hopefully be able to upload more videos. And maybe talk about my books as well. 

Oh Yeah! that's another thing that finally happened last year I am now a published author so that only e-books are available on the Amazon Kindle store but I have two books out now One is a collection of my short stories and another is a collection of Hindi Poems where I have 4 poems. Thanks to my best friend Alankar this dream has been completed.

Last year along with the multitudes of events and weddings had to be postponed due to the lockdown. One of these weddings was that of my sister who was supposed to get married in June but that had to be postponed to November but I couldn't join the wedding as I contacted COVID-19 just one week before the wedding.

Yup, I managed to get infected with COVID-19 and had to deal with 8 days of fever in a row but finally recovered and well continuing with the life now, I have spent most of the time since lockdown alone as wife and kid left just before the lockdown and then they were stuck there as the travel services were on hold. 

Another hobby I picked up during last year is for Fountain Pens and I have collected many fountain pens and many-colored inks and enjoyed practicing writing again as most of the writing I do now is via keyboard and on the computer or the mobile phones. But haven't been able to practice for some time, but will be starting the practice again. 

And that's it for now because I can keep on writing but should keep somethings for the next posts as well. Take care you all, Wash your hands, and wear a mask.

Let's Work from Home

First of all, Let me tell you that I am trying out a new font

So it might not make sense in the future but this time in the year 2020 the world was in the grip of fear of a virus called Corona Virus or COVID-19 but like many countries, in India as well schools and colleges were closed till 31st March and offices were also starting the same.

Our office got there a little late but finally, most of the staff is now set to work from home and though few people were able to go off yesterday or even before and I got delayed by this reason or that reason and finally I am all set to start work from home and this is the test to see that everything is working properly.

Like most of the companies, our company also decided the sent the machines to the home with the workers. So I also brought my machine with me so that I can perform my job and Work from Home and with that in mind this test is being done on the machine just to ensure that everything is working before I have to actually start the work in the evening of Monday. After all, I work in the night shifts supporting US customers. 

So this is just kinda normal reporting post updating about the situation and now I mostly in the home and I was already doing so as wife and kid are wife's home as kid's exams were done so so so I am in isolation and it goes and on and on.
