S: RJ @ 26
FC: 26 years of RAJ | SHE RULES
1: when she first cried, her mother knew that this girl will go places, although at that moment, the size of the tiny baby dispelled any thoughts of the grandeur she will achieve in her life. | A smile - Letting the world know - "I HAVE ARRIVED." (with a bang) | The future visionary (fate had no idea what it was facing, neither did her mom)
2: Initial stages were innocuous showing no traces of the raging fire within her, | which may have been partly fueled by the highly spiced andhra food.
3: A small matter of a love letter in 3rd standard provided a tiny glimpse into the potential | of this dynamic and proactive young lady which we see in full bloom now.
4: The cute face and the dimpled cheeks hide more than just ambition & determination, but the perseverance to go places as seen in | the picture where her happiness is evident after achieving her dream of learning to cycle, for the first time, IN AMERICA.
5: There were a few hiccups, ups and downs, and hitch-hikers (crushes and (just) friends) along the road, but they were all sacrificed for the sake of the greater good. | A selective few were privileged to be blessed with her benevolence and showered with her love.
8: After school, a period of uncertainty loomed on for the first year due to unavoidable and uncontrollable circumstances, of ragging and crushes on senior(s). [Hitch-hiker no. 4, 5 & 6]
9: Here entered a bunch of characters who provided solace, depth and perspective, and her life was on track again. | Although the depth and perspective provided could be debated, it was an important factor in her life to achieve greatness (or so we believe and console ourselves).
10: And with the entry of two more characters at the end of 2nd year, her life seemed complete (at least her social life). | But greatness can never be contained, and when coupled with grit, guts and a taste for glory, it was like a dormant volcano waiting to erupt any minute.
11: BEYOND ANGER lies fury, the heedless, ungovernable rage of the berserker, and beyond that again, a long, long step beyond the boundary of madness, lies the region of cold and utterly uncaring indifference. When a man enters that region, as few ever do, he is no longer himself, he is a man beside himself, a man outwith all his normal codes and standards of feeling and thought and emotions, a man for whom words like fear and danger and suffering and exhaustion are words that belong to another world and whose meaning he can no longer comprehend. It is a state characterised by an abnormally heightened clarity of mind, by a hyper-sensitive perception of where danger lies, by a total and unhuman disregard for that danger. It is, above all, a state characterised by an utter implacability. - Alistair Maclean Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, Think you are so cute. Dont be so, because I know the frightening truth. - Vivek. | [Oh ya, hitch-hiker no. 12 at this time]
