Why we never celebrate Vinayaka chaturdhi?


First and foremost I wish one and all a Happy Vinayaka Chaturdhi !!!On this auspicious occasion I wish my friends and their families all the health and happiness:).
As a kid I always used to wonder why I was never allowed to be a part of all the fun where as the other kids of my neighborhood used to set up a Ganesh idol and collect money for that purpose,arrange events, conduct pooja's etc .I always used to miss that.And one day when i was irritated with my mom and about to rebel and join other kids my dad understood my problem and took me aside and explained......
In his words - "I don't know when it started but all that I know is from my grand father's time we never celebrated Vinayaka chaturdhi as if we did, something has gone wrong with one of our family members . My dad never told what all he had experienced but my mom used to tell that its not good for us so forget about it.But like you even me and your uncles were annoyed by the fact that all our friends used to relish the festive season and we used to be gloomy side in the entire season that is from actual festival day to the Nimarjanam.All this happened when we used to stay at Yelamanchili our native place.Once myself and Gani uncle (my uncle-Mr Adari Ganapathi rao) came up with a solution.We thought that we shouldn't conduct all the pooja's at house but its OK if we do that some where outside the house.So we formed a gang with other friends and started to work on arrangements.Gani uncle climbed on to some tree for leaves for decoration purpose from where he fell and fractured his hand!!!!!.When my mom came to know the news she was furious and scolded us for doing what we did. Another incident one day, the next year it so happened that some one asked me for some help for pooja at their house and I thought whats harm in helping others and went for help.When I went there they asked me to bring some thing which was located on a shelf and i need to climb over it to get that.So i took a stool and almost climbed there where I felt a sharp pain and realized that a nail pierced into my foot!!!.From then on I have decided that I would never indulge in any activity that is a part of Vinayaka chaturdhi.Later when we moved to Hyderabad where we used to reside near Golconda we were again foolish enough to try it again, me and my siblings .So we started to set up all the necessary things and then an ambulance arrived carrying my dad who usually never falls ill, suffering from high fever who was perfectly fine when he left for the work.This was a way too much and by now I completely understood why we never celebrated Vinayaka chaturdhi.Then when I was married and left the joint family and moved to BHEL township your mom said that she would attend pooja in some neighborhood.I thought she is from other family so it may not effect her and allowed her to go.As a result even she was hit by a high fever.So now you understand why we never celebrate Vinayaka chaturdhi?"
Though my dad explained it in full detail I was not convinced as we call ourselves the new age guys and all the elders superstitious.Even i thought that way....
When we moved to this apartment of ours the very first year all the residents thought of celebrating Vinayaka chaturdhi and started collecting chanda's for that purpose.My dad was president at that time so he was involved and I participated actively by organizing all the arrangements and we both suffered bad time the entire week next to the festival, hit by fever and unable to move from the bed.So when it happened to me it was clear enough and I never ever tried it again.So it was a big full stop there.Its some thing to do with god's decision we are punished for some sin and our family couldn't enjoy the festival along with others :( .
So guys that's the story behind this so please don't misunderstand me if I refuse to attend some pooja or don't reply to your wishing messages.And I don't even know if its safe to post this ...........

My crush my niece :*

Guys who ever read my intro(hopefully) must have wondered don't I have any siblings ?for them and even for those who don't even know about that post here comes my answer.I have a sister Mrs.Vasudha 5 years elder to me.She is happily married to my brother in law Mr.Arun Kumar. Coming to the point my sister gave birth to my niece who is yet to be named and I just fell in love with her.She was looking sooooooooo cute :* .I just cant believe that I became an uncle,its like a dream.Its been 3 years since my sisters marriage and years just passed like days and here comes my little niece with such a glow with all that shine who is making us realize that we are growing older :( which is a sad thing but yea I am happy for having her.She just looks like my brother in law with a few features of my sister,but believe me guys she s gonna be the most adored girl of her group,class or wherever she s gonna go. May be this would sound a little too much but take your time have a look at her after some 15 or 16 years and then u would definitely agree with me.Its just like another festival at our place and all my family members are in festive mood enjoying her arrival and celebrating it in a grand way.Right now we are in search for good names for my love so folks help me out and give some good names which are both Indian and Hindu .Hoping a good number of responses ill get back to my crush my love my niece :*..........

Moments that scared the hell out of me!!!!!!!


Every person in this world would have across a situation when he/she just manages to escape from the claws of death.It happened thrice in my life.......
For the 1st time in my life I saw how it would feel when u almost left hopes on living.Its a no moon day a festival deepavali and I was in 1st or 2nd standard I guess.Myself and my sister were playing with the crackers like any other kid in our balcony at our residence at that time that is in BHEL township which has a tank filled with water.My sister lit a bhoochakra and it was spinning with sparks which was fun to watch.But then came the other side of the fun,it was heading towards me and as a kid I was scared and climbed over the water tank and as it approached as much as I can feel the sparks I fell into the tank backwards.Though my sister was present there she couldn't lift me as even she was young at that time.My parents were busy with some work and time was running out finally my sister some how managed to get me out of the tank after few minutes. Thanks to her without whom I wouldn't have been left to post this.
Though the above incident was scary enough, as I was too young at that time I managed to forget it quiet easily but it isn't the same with my next experience with the danger......
It was a rainy season,when we shifted to my present house 12 years back.We were one among the few people who shifted to the apartment while others have to still arrive.We had a basement tank which was left unclosed as the apartment work was still going on.It rained a lot for few days and I was missing playing cricket.Finally I gave up waiting and took a ball and bat to play cricket stubbornly in the rain.But none of my friends turned up due to which I was playing the same with a wall.The ball went and fell in that basement tank 2,3 times but I managed to get it with the help of my bat.But while I was trying for the same I lost my balance and fell into that tank.Unfortunately I couldn't swim at that time.No one could here my screams and watchman cant see me.I left my hopes on my life but was wildly pushing the water to stay as long as I could until a hand came to my help which lifted me up.I just couldn't believe what happened.It was a man working on a building under construction beside our apartment who saw me from that building and came all the way to help me out.This incident scared me a lot and I was unable to sleep for many weeks that followed it!!!!!!!!!!
While these 2 incidents occurred when I was in my early childhood the other occurred just 2 years ago........
It was in the winter I guess I was just returning after attending a party of one of my friends birthday party.It was around 8 in the night and I was scared my dad would be angry with me for being late.As it was late in the night there were no vehicles on the road and I was on my top speed around 80 kmph at an average.We know what is the condition of the lights on the main road and as it was night i couldn't see much in that darkness.I was going at a high speed where I suddenly had to apply my disc breaks at that speed as I saw a tractor which had no back lights and can be seen only within the scope of my headlights.That's it my bike slided like in some movie but I some how managed to handle it without crashing.But when I stopped I was just a few inches away from the tractor almost having my back tire lifted up and placed down because of the sudden breaks.That moment I was shocked and stood still for few minutes realizing that I was still alive and thanking god.
In this way I was lucky enough to escape these major dangers I faced and even many other minor ones and I completely thank god for that :)

Confusion !!!!!!!!!!!!!


Till date I was wondering why was my life so simple ?I mean I never had problem getting descent marks or getting into a good college and I am sure some one overheard that.Ufffffff pursuing my 4th year now I am struck between placements and my CAT preparation.To add to this comes my hectic 4-1 sem schedule.Oh god plz help me out.The problem is I am unable to concentrate on one leaving the other due to which I am sailing having my foot on two completely different boats traveling in opposite direction.Whenever I have a placement I leave my CAT preparation which breaks the mood and I can never continue with the same pace and have to start it all over again and its the same case vice versa .And for this reason I am losing my confidence.Now due to this problem I am unable to do well in either of the cases.All I can do is watch myself fail in both again and again.I have to forgo one of these to to excel in the other but what should it be?And to add to this comes our project seminars,academics and stuff why don't they understand that one person cant do more than a work at a time unless and until he accepts to be an alien.Why don't they move the CAT date a bit so that it doesn't overlap with our semester exams?and why don't our college take care that companies come in an orderly fashion to pick up students?I Donna when am I going to get rid of this confusion and do well in at least one of these !!!!!!!!!!

Intro - not mandatory but recommended :D


Let me introduce myself a bit I am Adari Raghuveer s/o Mr.Adari Lakshmanrao and Mrs.Adari Vijayalakshmi.My parents are from vishakapatnam my birth place.My father works at BHEL as a senior technician and my mother is a house wife.My grand pa used to serve Indian army due to which he used to travel a lot leaving family and friends.When he retired govt gave him some place located at which is now referred as "Defence colony" near sainikpuri where he has built a house which has saw many memorable events as part of our joint family.Though I was too young to remember any thing it was like heaven for us a joint family with our grand parents,parents,uncles,aunts ,cousins definitely not very different from any saas bahu serial ka set up.But due to some financial problems we moved to BHEL township where I had my schooling in Jyothi vidyalaya high school which was pretty famous at our locality till my 5th but then due to some management problems our teachers dint have their salaries.But I am really grateful to them that they continued to teach without salaries.Whatever I have achieved is due to their blessings.When I was in 4th my dad bought a house which was near to BHEL where we are living right now.During my schooling I used to be very active at sports like cricket,soccer,volley ball and even represented my school in shuttle badminton.I even used to be very good with art.But as soon as entered Intermediate which I did at Narayana Jr coll S.R.Nagar my life took a U turn and i was totally out of all activities which has nothing to do with education.Two years I ate,walked,talked,rocked only MPC and as a result I ended up at University College of Engineering(autonomous) Osmania University which I would call Heaven.I am still pursuing my 4th year there and last 3 years where the most beautiful years which I never wanted to end.Ragging, both being ragged and ragging juniors was fun ant it wasn't the serious one so plz don't file any case against me.Studying was always fun but apart from that all those presentations,sports and events were gr8.This is about me in short :D
