asiannewsagency - 2 days ago

Noida: Redolent of the great times at the Asian School of Media Studies, each student of the last batch and the current one lit an earthen lamp on arrival at the ‘Diya ceremony’ held in their honor at the campus here this evening. This was the time when the students were the distinguished guests and were termed as the ambassadors of their alma mater to carry the light of academic illumination into their professional career.
The ASMS Rhythm created magic with its medley of Hindi film songs which brought the zing in the function with some students tapping their feet and swaying themselves with the beat of the drummer. The band comprised Shresth Saha, Sumit Raina, Neelkanth Pathak, Vivek Massey and Tushaar Majumdar.
The function, marking the thanksgiving of ASMS and the new voyage of the students, ended up in a sumptuous dinner spread-over which the students and the teachers were seen in animated conversations recalling the great moments of the past days .
Asian Education Group President, Sandeep Marwah showered praises of goodness on the students and said that they had become part of the ASMS family. “ Go and conquer the world, it’s at your feet and always fare well in life, this is my short prayer for you all, ” he added to a resounding applause in a crescendo which went louder when he recited a couplet which has become almost a signature in his speeches.
Former governor of Assam and Chief Guest Syed Sibtey Razi called upon the students to emulate the great ideals of eminent personalities and contribute their creative work towards the betterment of the society.
Addressing the gathering, ASMS Director-General Dr. A.K. Srivastava said that it was a proud moment for the teaching faculty that its students were on the threshold of settling down in their careers while some had grabbed covetous jobs in television and film production houses and newspapers.
Other guests of honour present included former V-C Dr. V.K. Goswami, Chairman Climate and Environment Committee ICMEI Dr. K.D. Gupta, film personality and director Col. Kapoor and Head India IECEN- Polytechnic University of Milan Pankaj Gupta.

am quite thoroughly tired of life and living.

no, this is not a suicidal note. it's simply a sigh of exhaustion from aimless wandering.

what's the purpose for working, dating, meeting friends, drinking?

meaningful conversations - what value does that add to another life? to this world? and even if it does make an impact, what does this do?

we constantly want to 'touch other lives', 'help other people'... aren't all these actions for the same reason? to trigger our emotions, to trigger those endorphines, making us feel worthwhile and happy.

but what if a person is constantly sitting in a glass room, emotions bouncing around the room, against the glass, unable to truly impact a person? if the impact is hard enough, it might be able to produce some minor effect, but otherwise.. it's a cold numbness that immerses the mind.

maybe in such a case, well, life shouldn't be lived.


The Sanctity of Marriage, Because of Love.

AshleyJo - 4 days ago


It wasn’t so much the legalisation of same-sex marriage in the US but the swathes of reactions/commentaries/viewpoints that got me questioning on the universal ideals of marriage. The words I’ve heard and read, some of which are closer to home in the form of conversations, FB postings/sharing of articles, have truly shed some disconcerting light on the perspectives of the religious and non-religious alike.

Not that it is anything new to begin with. Yet when the ideal of marriage becomes part of the argument to justify the dissent, I can’t help but feel that it is not the legality of the matrimonial union btw same-sex couples that is the crux of the debate. It is becoming quite clear to me that some of the straight friends/couples I know who pride themselves as LGBT-friendly or embracing, are never truly embracing of the love shared btw a same-sex couple. Well, not as much as they would deem as justifiable/natural/matter-of-factly that gay couples should be afforded exactly the same options as heterosexuals since the beginning of time. I am not even using the term “privilege” here to emphasize that the options to marry or divorce thereafter are nothing more than fundamental rights of any human being.

I’ve always admired K for the intellectual brilliance and clear objectivity he has in his interpretation and his non-judgmental position on various issues ranging from religion and policies to homosexuality and social evolution, as a thinking Catholic no less. But alas, his latest inputs though earnest and full of “sympathies” for the LGBTs, reek of an underlying dismissive mindset toward how (or where) a same-sex relationship should be heading to. More precisely, as far as legality of marriage is concerned for gay couples, he is insinuating that they really should be happy to remain status-quo and love with the freedom they’re enjoying as legally-single individuals instead of being subjected to the “rules” and “limitations on freedom” that come as part of the marriage package. Seriously, I don’t know what rules and limitations he was talking abt but I assume he was referring to his marriage vows of being faithful and blah blah as a newly-married guy.

To think that I’m someone who cannot thrive under rules and limitations, I actually subscribe to the institution of marriage. Simply because I don’t see marriage as a contract that comes with rules to bind or limitation to restrict either party’s freedom. Afterall, rules are meant to be broken, no? So if he wants to stray from his wife or vice-versa because either party is feeling unfulfilled, he/she can. Marriage doesn’t put in place boundaries that guarantee faithfulness and commitment, both of which are innately driven by this thing called Love. And nothing else.

Marriage does not limit nor guarantee anything. What it does is actually to liberate the two individuals in love with each other by expanding the boundaries and removing the barriers that have been deterring them from embarking on partnership endeavours if and when they want to. Yes, the practicalities of housing rights and hospital visitation rights and all that boring stuff in life. Boring but necessary in ensuring a stress-free progression of the r/s so that the hearts can be left alone to continually Love, Engage and Soothe each other instead of fretting over the absence of legal rights in times of sickness or death.

What mum and dad have shared in their marriage have given me simple takeaways on the ideals of marriage. Love. The rest would just fall into place naturally.

I never thought of getting married but just for the mere fact that if I could be given the legal options in life to marry or divorce for that matter, it would reaffirm my sexuality in the eyes of the law and the society. Most importantly, it drives home an indisputable message to the straight and religious folks that we’re no less deserving than anybody else. Even to go through the unglam shit of marriage.

Love defines the sanctity of marriage. Not the church.

Forgettable & The Unforgettable.

AshleyJo - 4 days ago


I find it laughable and somewhat ironical to learn that the "sentimental" ex still has an interest in my affairs till this day. Laughable because……was I really such a good gf to her that my life continues to hold her attention despite the many years that have passed since our breakup? Or should I attribute it to mere nosiness even after so many years? Seriously, I would rather it be the latter because I’m not the least bit flattered to pique her interest still. Not because I’m sore that she dumped me. I was, for abt two months? After which I was really glad she made the decision to leave me for greener pastures/the hotter and more voluptuous girl or whatever we wanna call it. The irony of it is, I was never angry at her and i'm in fact thankful to how things panned out btw us.

Because it makes her forgettable and two women unforgettable. For the same circumstances.

While this “sentimental” ex left me at the lowest point of my life, both E and you were there for me while I was going through the darkest periods of the same life. The both of you came into my life, each at a different but equally painful phase of my existence, each offering a different light at the end of that dark tunnel in which I used to be stuck timelessly. Such, is the unforgettable presence.

It’s coincidentally strange that I share the best chemistry with E and you, both of whom turned out to be the most enlightening and uplifting lovers to me, helping me to bring my sunshine back into my once-broken existence. What is even stranger is that…… I loved you both the most, I have hurt you both the deepest with my wilfulness......and I still do not exactly know why. 

I guess, intense love makes me incomprehensible to myself.

Legalized. In sickness and in health. Always easy to be there in health. In sickness, best one can learn not to expect any help. Nor any word of concern. Not even a goodnight . 


The Four Mantras of Love

Onedarer - 5 days ago

Every morning, I wake up with my heart tightly strung, I will check if he's still breathing. The entire day, I will keep watch over him, as much as I can, to ensure that he is at least comfortable. He does not want to eat much anymore. Today he just wants plain rice and his usual cookies. 

As I struggle with the idea of euthanasia, and resist against it, I have also come to accept his imminent death, and make peace within myself. I don't know what he might think about his own death, but every time when he experiences a discomfort and looks over at me, I know my presence has made him feel better. 

The Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh has taught about his 4 Mantras of Love:

1) I'm here for you.

2) I know you are there, and I'm very happy.

3) I know you suffer. That's why I'm here for you.

4) I suffer. Please help.

(To read more:

From these 4 mantras, I understand that when we are in love with someone (not necessarily just romantic love). we have to be there for him or her, and to be able to give this person complete trust. It may also mean that we have to open up completely and expose our weaknesses to them.

Being human, it's not easy for us to open up to others completely. We can give our bodies completely to others, even strangers, but we safeguard the person that we are inside. Even after a couple has gotten together for some time, perhaps years, or decades, they will still not be able to fully expose their most vulnerable sides.

Which is why, I suppose, the 4th mantra is the hardest to put into actions.
