Are you unlucky?

Often we come across these statements-

I am having a bad luck.

If only luck was on my side, I could have cleared that exam.

I am not getting that job only because of my bad luck.

These statements can come from anyone. In fact, almost everyone blame luck at some point of time in their life.



Do you learn (ever)?

I will try to keep it short.

But there are some people who are strangely ahead of the curve. The Gates. The Zuckerbergs. Somehow they steer off the alligators easily. Others seems to fall again and again.

And that brings us here. Do you know that there are three types of people in this world?

How to prioritize your tasks while preparing for exams?

Once there was a race between a rabbit and a tortoise. The rabbit, by its very nature, was extremely fast. He could almost run by the speed of light. The tortoise, on the other hand, was slow. He couldn’t even run by 1/10th of the speed of tortoise. Everyone thought that the rabbit will win. The stage was set. The audience took their seat. The cheer girls were dancing. A light cold breeze was flowing. The sun hid his eyes beneath the sheet of cloud, because he didn’t want to see the tortoise lose that badly. But there was something unusual which was unknown to the common people. The tortoise was slow, yet wise. He believed in smart work rather than hard work. The rabbit was overconfident. One year ago, when this race was announced, the rabbit had become a self-proclaimed winner. He thought that he knew the fate. He enjoyed, he danced, he laughed, he flirted, he facebooked a lot during that year. But tortoise was doing something else. He had a plan. A killer plan. Instead of wasting his time, he worked day and night for a purpose, which was, defeating nature by winning that race. He knew that he can never win that race on foot. So, he used his mind…

Rabbit came to the race track on foot. Dressed up like a rock star. Tortoise came after him & when he did, almost everyone’s jaws touched the ground. He had chiseled his shell in an aerodynamic fashion. He was riding a small vehicle with rocket boosters! Since race rules weren’t specific about these things, so no one could put up an objection & tortoise knew it. What happened next, is know to everyone till date…

How To Make Jawdropping Presentations for Instant Lead in Competitions

Have you ever given any presentation? If you are an engineering student, which, I think you are, then you must have heard about MS Powerpoint.

That familiar, cute, old, BORING piece of software which 99.9999% of all the people use to make their so-called ‘PPT’! You might be thinking- “What the hell! I am here for my GATE/IES preparations, & he is bragging about ppts” to which my reply is “GATE/IES is not end of the world my friend. World exist before exams & it exists after it too.”

Personality development is a continuous process & your personality should be visible in everything related to you. When you give a presentation, it is believed that-

  • It is your concept
  • It Is your design
  • It is your content

Whatever may be the real truth about content 😉 but you can always make the design of your presentation so appealing, so fascinating that people get entangled in that so badly, that for the moments the presentation runs, they forget about everything else.

Why do people fail in GATE/IES- Know the rules of the game..

We find many people studying and studying and studying continuously for days, months & even years in some case, without any substantial success in examinations.

On the other hands, there are some people who enjoy every aspect of their life even then they manage to clear the examinations in their first attempt! How does that happen? Where was the difference created?

Much Needed Motivation Capsule for GATE/IES Aspirants

I know that you are a GATE/IES aspirant & that’s why you are here. You may be in 2nd/3rd/final year of college or may be preparing by joining a coaching after completing your engineering.

So, it is good & nice upto now.

So dear, how is your preparation going?

Most of you will reply..

“Theek Thak.. So So..”

“Haan chal rahi hai.. dekho kya hota hai..” (Yes it is going .. let’s see where does it goes)

“Arey sab lite hai” 😉

But why this lack of confidence?

Mostly this happens due to lack of motivation. And we all know that motivation is one of a tricky bitch. It leaves you in the midst of the war. You will keep trying to get motivated & boom.. the next day is your exam. Then what?

It is completely natural to sometimes lose interests in studies or not doing upto the mark as required. The question is how to get back on track? And for that you need to look after these points-

How to pick a ball that is lying in front of you- The Beauty of Law of Attraction – I

After writing some posts on GATE & IES, now I have decided to widen the scope of my blog. So, in this post, I am writing about something that will help you in each & every aspect of your life.

This concept is present everywhere, every time, even then, somehow we fail to comprehend it, we fail to understand it. Knowing about this is strange, how a big concept like that can remain hidden from us? The main reason behind this is that it is not included in the basic curriculum of schools.

Without making further fuss about it, let’s begin this awesome journey to awesomeness.
