Watch the Watch

Siddhesh0567

The watch on the left is the same watch which I have been using for past 9 years. It was gifted to me by my school teachers after the SSC results. Yesterday when I went to change the batteries of the watch at Titan showroom, the guy advised me to change the body of the watch. I asked him if it was possible to restore the gold platting. He then explained to me that by changing the “body” he meant changing everything except belts. Well, 2 things struck my mind -

  1. why would I pay Rs. 450 for the body if I could add few hundreds more and get a new watch?
  2. Secondly, and most importantly, if the body is replaced then that would mean that the whole watch is replaced after it was given to me. I have already changed the belt 4 times now and if I change the “body”, it will cease to represent what it was meant to be.

Raja Shivchhatrapati Lyrics

इंद्र जिमि जंभ पर… बाडव सुअंभ पर… रावण सदंभ पर… रघुकुलराज है !
पौन बारिबाह पर… संभु रतिनाह पर… ज्यों सहसबाह पर… राम द्विजराज है !
उदरात माउली… रयतेस साउली… गडकोट राउळी… शिवशंकर हा
मुक्तीची मंत्रणा… युक्तीची यंत्रणा… खल दुष्टदुर्जना… प्रलयंकर हा
संतास रक्षितो… शत्रू निखंदतो… भावंडभावना… संस्थापितो
ऐसा युगेयुगे… स्मरणीय सर्वदा… माता-पिता-सखा… शिवभूप तो
दावा दृमदंड पर… चीता मृगझुंड पर… भूषन वितुंड पर… जैसे मृगराज है !
तेज तम‍ अंस पर… कान्ह जिमि कंस पर… त्यों मलिच्छ बंस पर… सेर सिवराज है !
जय भवानी, जय शिवाजी !Thanks to Nik for sending this.In case any of you want to read the whole poem you can visit this link.

NCFM

Finally gave the last exam which I had targeted in the year 2010. It took me 7 months to give my first NCFM exam. But soon got into study mode for rest of the exams. I guess toughest of them all was "Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management”. The last one – “Derivatives Dealers Module” was also tough because I had lost the momentum in between as I participated in lot of Operations Simulation Games with no touch of Finance during that one and a half month period. Now, I am proud NCMP Level 3!!!

:(

It feels really frustrating sometimes. What is the point of being the so called sincere guy in class, the “nine" pointer guy when your parents are worried about how much time you spend on TV serials and movies in hostel!
