नव्या के स्कूल के लिए जाना, मुझको भी कुछ पढ़ा जाता है

नव्या के स्कूल दाखिले के लिए स्कूल पहुंचा तो तीन रोचक लेख देखे जो पहले कभी न देखे थे - 
 ऊँचाई - एक कविता,  श्री अटल बिहारी बाजपाई द्वारा रचित
किताबें - एक कविता, सफदर हाश्मी द्वारा रचित
हेड मास्टर के नाम पत्र - अब्राहम लिंकन द्वारा लिखित

बानगी :
ऊँचे पहाड़ पर,
पेड़ नहीं लगते,
पौधे नहीं उगते,
न घास ही जमती है।

करती  हैं  बातें 
बीते  ज़मानो  कि 
दुनिया की, इंसानों की 

आज की – कल की 
एक एक पल की 
खुशियों की, ग़मो की 
फूलों  की , बमों  की 
जीत  की  हार  की 
प्यार  की , मार  की 

Lincoln’s Letter to his Son’s Teacher
He will have to learn, I know,
that all men are not just,
all men are not true.
But teach him also that
for every scoundrel there is a hero;
that for every selfish Politician,
there is a dedicated leader…
Teach him for every enemy there is a friend,

Some experiences making way back to conciousness

Navya makes it. School results are out and her name is there on the list. Now it is the second phase that takes up from here. I am going through a phase tougher than the previous...DECIDING. Realizing that even when the desired goal is achieved, a new journey begins. All pros and cons are being weighed down.

Well, just realized that protein and good tutrition changes the perception too. :-)
One of the keys for having good cognition is to have good hormones flowing and that comes from proper nutrition plus proper excercises. Just a little of this is getting me into some very old experiences of life at "tattva" level. I am able to sense all the "ghataks (parts)" of what is known as the experience of life;  something similar is already there in the store house to compare. A sort of snapshot taken years ago!

School hunt is on, but is it for Navya or for us?

Navya's first formal school interview today...seems she fared well. In the school premises, the parents, a hall full of them, were on the verge of nervous break down and were perspiring while their wards were relatively as ease. As they interviewed parents' too, it was a parents evaluation for sure and parents who are normally good at giving unsolicited advices were caught off guard when their own turn came; we were no different :-)

Results would show how did we fare. Navya informs that she did good in coloring and other puzzle activities she went through. The results depend solely on us.

Today, we have had our tête-à-tête with the plight of the Indian middle class who is already overburdened in keeping the "MOTOR" running!

Two quick keyboard shortcuts in MS-Excel 2007

1. Changing Cell reference from relative to mixed or absolute reference
If within a formula, the cell references are " =A1+B1", then double click over the cell or press F2 so that the cell contents become editable. Now, pressing F4
repeatedly makes the cell reference change from relative to absoulte and from absolute to both variants of mixed references
and then back to relative.
Also notice that reference nearest to the cursor, listens to the tune of function key F4. To make the entire formula dance,
select the whole text before pressing F4.
A typical reference change would look like the following, here the cursor was nearer to B1.
"=A1+B1" -> "=A1+$B$1" -> "=A1+B$1" -> "=A1+$B1" -> "=A1+B1"

2. Calculating auto sum
After writing down the numbers, press ALT key followed by the key that houses both "=" and "+".
Real't it ;-)

मेरा ही दृष्टिकोण

सुथरी सड़कें और धुली धूप, हल्का हल्का सा हल्कापन
ये शहर वोही ये जगहें वोही, फिर क्यूँ लगती थी कमी कोई
और आज यहाँ जब सभी वोही, फिर भी है कुछ तो आकर्षण

सुबहे जब था उंनीदापन, कहीं न जाने का था मन
फिर भी निकला, आलस भूला
अनुभव भी बदल गया अब तो, उर्जा से भरा हुआ है तन

चेहरे पे लगती है ये हवा, अब कितना अच्छा लगता है
देख रहा हूँ क्या बाधा है, कैसे मुझे हरा पाती है
तनी दृष्टि भी ढूंढ़ रही है, बाधाएं बौनी लगती हैं

आकर अब जाना है मैंने, राज छिपा दृष्टिकोणों में
दो बूंद छलकती जैसे लपकीं, गौतम के अनुभव के प्याले से
मेरा जीवन मेरा दर्पण, समय, चेतना के बंधन में
