Ahmedabad is the largest city of Gujarat which is very much developed as far as infrastructure and standard of living of people is considered. It exists since 1411AD and is named after Sultan Ahmed Shah. It has a significant role in textile industry’s history; it is considered as Manchester of the East.

Ahmedabad has always caught attention of outside world due to its continuous development. When Gujarat emerged as a state, Ahmedabad was initially suggested to be the capital city but it was recommended that the new capital should be similar to Chandigarh and hence a new city was developed and named after Mahatma Gandhi.

It has 12 gates within the core city and hence has received title of “City of gates”. It has various heritage places that demonstrate the earlier civilizations and talent. The foundation of the city was laid in Manek buraj.

There are few unknown stories about Ahmedabad for example Aurangzeb was born in Dahod. Yes, the great Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb was born on 3 November 1618, in Dahod, Gujarat. He was the third son and sixth child of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz. His father was a governor of Gujarat at that time.

The real Ahmedabad lies in its pols and they have their own history. The pol houses in Ahmedabad are known for their carves and curves.  After returning from Africa, Gandhi resided in Akashethkuva ni pol shree surendranathmedh. There is a school in Khadia (in Jethabhai ni pol), Ahmedabad named Vanitavishram girls high school whose foundation was laid by Mahatma Gandhi.

Intellectual Property Day

People say that tangible things might get stolen,

People might use it without permission…

But Intellect is something unique to individuals.

People use their intellect to innovate.

And to recognize these people,

Government took steps in the form of Intellectual Property Rights

that cater to trademarks, patents, copyrights, etc.

It’s Intellectual Property Day on April 26

And this time the theme all over the world is

Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined

Theme too points out the new trend!!!

Worth Knowing:

The date was particularly chosen because the World Intellectual Property Organization came into existence on this day in the year 2000.

Overthinking

I don’t whether it’s a boon or a curse…

People like me think about each and every word said or every act done
Sometimes it leads towards recognition of wrong intentions
And sometimes makes you think of things you are not supposed to!
It gives stress but you have no control over it
Interpreting things helps you in understanding the other person well
But interpreting every aspect might even spoil the relation
People do not always mean what they show
That’s why they are considered complex
It’s difficult to understand when to ignore and when to think
But experience will teach you that…
Don’t always take things the way they are
But at the same time,
Also remember that not everything has hidden meaning!
Don’t allow your brain to make you too sensitive to be people friendly!
People may then have to think twice before being with you
Stay straight forward, practical and groom your actions and thoughts according to situation!!!

EXAMs…

A blast that actually kills so called ‘ineligible candidates’
People criticise this way to check efficiency
But still,  initial screening is always by marks
And that’s why candidates want them by hook or crook
People even go till the extent of having special exam friends!!!
As a kid,
I always used to hate exam
Because I always felt-
Teachers love asking things I’ve not studied
While growing up,
I became a bit serious about exams
I remember studying for entire nights during my boards
Further I becoming serious for my career
And competitive exams started playing their role
Not every competitive exam gave me a competitive edge
In college,
Exam was just another day with pen and papers
It is no more special or important
It is part of routine now
I always crave to belong to ancient times,
When acharyas used to teach techniques
And exam was all about applying them
It checked efficiency according to situations
Don’t we now just check efficiency of brains for remembering the theories?
Things such as projects, case studies etc were introduced to tackle it
But who guarantees that efforts were of student himself?
At times people with better guidance
Or better impression in mind of evaluators
Move ahead
What about others?

April Fool

April 1st… here is the day which is meant to fool people…

There is a day in year that is actually very interesting. I’m still unaware of the logic behind it but people enjoy fooling each other. It somewhere brings out the inner innocence of the individuals by the way of their minor attempts to make people believe what they are saying. This is a single day when no one trusts anyone around, but still no one feels bad about it.

Sometimes I wonder… how interesting is it to fool someone, though just for few moments. It actually gives a different type of pleasure, an unusual satisfaction to fool a friend. But, on the contrary if the attempt fails or tables turn on you, it becomes a very awkward situation… you feel uneasy even among your own people.
