Delhi Diary : Small town girl makes her way to the Capital of the country!

Standard

Let me start by telling you about myself.

Hello, my name is Vidisha Kaithal. I’m born and brought up in a small and not so fancy city Allahabad, India. I have recently got admission in a college of Delhi and that’s what brought me to dilwalo ki dilli!

Ever since I had an idea about going to college, I always wanted to have one in Delhi. Delhi has always been my first love, afterall where will you find such an amazing mocktail of history, present and future!

I’ve been here a few times before but then, things were different. I was with my parents, which meant that I didn’t had to worry about anything. I knew that I would get the best possible facilities. Also, I was a kid back then so the tall buildings and zig zag going flyovers just amazed me and that feeling stuck with me to this date.

In my city, Allahabad, I always had this constant pressure to live, behave and do certain things which were approved by certain people. Since all my energies and curiosities were boxed I turned into an introvert. And when I used to be in Delhi, I observed that no body interferes in others life. One can do whatever she/he wants to do, right or wrong. The most important thing was that I could finally take my own decisions!

So before the cut offs were announced, I had little hope that I could make it due to several reasons.

  • I had not scored as I had planned.
  • My family had second thoughts about sending me to an alien place where I had to manage everything from scratch.
  • It is DELHI. It’s believed to be an unsafe place for girls.

I had applied in many colleges and got call back from several of them. One college was a prestigious girls private college from Jaipur. It was good, really good in terms of education. The campus had all sorts of facilities like swimming pool, tennis court etc. One can learn horse riding, shooting and what not. It was built in such a way that one doesn’t needs to go out of the campus. It had restaurants, markets from where you can get anything. Literally anything. My only problem was that the college provided too much security to girls.

I know it’s really good considering the outside world, but I wanted to face the “outside world “. I did not wanted this controlled and protected environment because I was already getting it at home. I want to explore how the world actually functions and interact with different kinds of interesting people and know their stories. I want to explore myself, find what I truly enjoy and make my own way to achieve my dreams. I want to grow up into a confident woman who is always ready to face any problem. And all this is possible only if I could be in Delhi, away from my parent’s shelter!

Since I had little hope to get into that specific college, and also because of my parent’s confused state of mind, I decided to take a solo trip to DELHI from ALLAHABAD.

I was travelled alone for the very first time. I had never even went to a market alone and here was I sitting in train and ready to go to Delhi. Those two days and a night trip was the best trip ever! I wish I could tell what all happened! 😉

Four days later , on 19/6/18, first cut off was released and on that night itself I went back to Delhi and on 20/6/18 I took admission in my dream place/college.

So I can conclude that I didn’t chose the college, I chose the city. Because in both the colleges I was getting my subjects i.e. psychology.

Now a new life, new adventure and lots of drama is waiting for me. After 10 days approximately, I’ll enter in a life which won’t be any less than a reality show! I hope all this takes me to my goal.😇

A battle should never be left unfought!

Standard

Realizations are always sudden! And during teen age we realize a hell lot of things! About life, society, people and more important about our-selves!

So, one day you wake up and suddenly realize that the world, in which you have been living in was just an illusion, and this realization leaves you shocked! Like a giant wave that comes to your footsteps, looks into your eyes (everything normal and beautiful) and the moment you extend your hands for a warm welcome, it slaps you hard and drags you along. You are trying, struggling to not to get swiped away by using your arms, legs and lungs to the fullest. But everything seems waste. It’s like the wave has come with a motive, to get you drowned. To see you completely submerged in water. Sometimes no matter how much you think that you will swim out, all by yourself. But before fighting we consider our self a loser. But what we forget is that every problem has a solution. We forget that even water pushes you up a few times. It gives you fair chances to fight back. But to rescue yourself, you need to fight. We just need to have patience and keep working towards our goals. Everything will eventually fall in place!:)

That conversation about cancer, which pissed me off!

Standard

Why are social gatherings exciting?
Well for me, it’s an exciting opportunity. An opportunity to know new people and old people better. An opportunity to conduct a little poll about “who will win the coming elections”,works done by present government, etc.
So I was in this party, which was pale. Since, there was nothing for me to do, I took a seat. Soon a girl joined me. And then, as the universe’s rule, we were into talking. Though I have known that pretty girl since childhood as we were common guests at  uncountable parties, gatherings but I never got to know her. So we were into talks when we were joined by her brother. I don’t exactly remember to what she replied  to him saying “Cancer people are infectious, so stay away”.
I absolutely hated the way she, insensitively joked about cancer. And also confused because I could not decide if she was really stupid to call it “infectious” or I was missing the catch. So with a laugh, somewhat similar to Chandler’s office laugh, I clearly told that I am an idiot to not able to understand her.
She continued, “oh, cancer is an infectious disease, you know.” trying to explain me.
Me-(frustrated)” no, it’s not. And is he a cancer patient?”
She– “No, it’s a joke. And ,well there are so many kinds of cancer, koi to hoga hi”
Me– “It’s not like that, when cells divide uncontrollably….” I tried to clear her doubts when she interrupted. This time, trust me, I was terrified to hear her next words.
She– “Who cares about cancer?”

And boom!!!
I never come to conclusions with one incident. I had made myself happy thinking that she was stupid for not having basic knowledge about cancer and moreover she was an insensitive girl. But I was shocked that majority of people present there were equally clueless. Maybe they don’t know it because they never had to face it (touch wood) or maybe because it was not in one of their chapters or just chose to stay mumm, for god knows what reason. But today, our world is not confined to books.It’s way more beyond. There, in that party, everyone was digitally connected to the world. But they are more busy in themselves. In their virtual world. A world which did existed but was equal to not existing. A world all about their demands, their likes, dislikes, happiness, sorrows, hopes, etc. A world, all about them. Yes, that selfish, virtual world!

This world has actually made people selfish. People keep painting themselves in an image, which is completely  different from the real self, so that complete strangers can like them! We keep trying to please someone, who doesn’t stand anywhere in our lives.

Also,I believe that we, teens, aren’t using our privileges properly. We  are well facilitated and equipped with different mass medias and we have access to information more easily. So we have some responsibilities to others, as well. I agree that we can’t  mug up gigantic books and be Mr-know-it-all. Even Jack couldn’t master all. You only need to be curious. Curious about the world around, the happenings, the issues concerning others, like you are about the girl or the guy next door, about knowing the income of any other person or the marks of that famous Sharmaji’s son!

Be a responsible and sensible person. Use your powers wisely. Don’t keep blaming the education system, school authorities etc. because everything can’t be taught. Knowledge can’t be fed, it has to be achieved or earned. Don’t be a fool. If you don’t know something, don’t be lazy and try to look it up. Because you never know when that out of course knowledge turns out to be helpful. Keep educating yourself and break the walls of common myths about diseases. Patients already suffers a lot, don’t make their living more terrible! They have more to deal with than your stupid misconceptions!

 

Hope

Standard

I just read one of the quote which was sent to me by a dear friend which said “One thing that is more important than Oxygen, Heart beat or even love is HoPe”
But I go with ~Robert G. Ingersoll, who said that
“Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity. ”
It’s not  because of all the Negativity that’s in my head but he is actually true and makes sense. Hope make us careless. We don’t accept the reality and keep hoping for something that will never happen and with this hope we spend our lives. In the end we are dissatisfied and discontent!  Isn’t it? 

HAPPY HOLI in my way!!
