Help Me Say Goodbye.


Okaay so my seniors, the 12th graders will technically be spending their last week in school which officially starts this sunday. And I don't really know how to react to them leaving. 

True, I’m not attached to all the 12th Graders but I feel attached to a lot of them. Over the year, I’ve really spent time with quite a few of them and gotten to know them. And now that they’re leaving, a part of me is really happy that they’re going out there into the open world, going to good universities, they’ll have a great life ahead. But there’s also a part of me that’s not willing to let go. They’ve always been there when we needed the guidance or the answers to any problems, and now that they’re leaving, it feels like we’re going to be all alone. No one to look up to, and all of a sudden, high school looks like it’s going to get very lonely.

But I guess it’s not up to me to stop them, and I guess it’s just another phase in life. We need to let go and take responsibility for the school. I’m just going to hope that this week turns out to be a great week filled with more memories to cherish once they’re gone.

This is a post to all the 12th graders out there. Whether I've interacted with you a lot, or not much, I hope you have a great life ahead in university and beyond that. I wish you all the luck for the future.

Dubai Modern High School.

Dubai Modern High School, formerly knows as The Modern High School. I'm proud to say, as I always have been, that I go to that school. This is my 13th year at modern, and it has been one hell of a journey. I’ve been with the school for the better part of its life and I’ve seen it grow and progress into the school it is today. Surprisingly, I clearly remember my first day at Modern. It was at the Safa Campus and just like majority of the children who were new-comers just like me, were crying as the environment was new to us. But I remember, as clich├ęd as this may sound, the teacher took my hand, told me that it’s going to be fun and it’ll all be okay and took me into my Kindergarten class. I remember how she spent the better part of the day getting to know us better, taking care of us just how a parent does.

As a new student, Modern was the perfect environment and now that I look back, I don’t think any other school would have made me feel the same way as I did as Modern on my first day.
As Modern has grown over the past 13 years, so have I. And as I’ve grown, I’ve grown immensely attached to this school. I feel a sense of pride in my school. It’s like patriotism. I look at my school now, and I see the high end facilities (which at one point of time I criticized) and I see how modern has risen above the expectations anyone could have ever had.


`This is my school. This is Modern High.

When we first moved into the new grand campus in Nad-Al-Sheba, It wasn’t the same feeling. I guess because I spent most of my years at the other campus, but now I see it to be one of the finest high schools in the region and I feel good about the campus. True, it’s a bit of a showoff, but why can’t we flaunt sometimes?

This week, as my school celebrates its 25th Anniversary, as it celebrates its silver jubilee and 25 years of excellence, I am proud to call myself a Modernite.

The Death Penalty, Is It Acceptable?


The Death Penalty.
Is It a justified action?

I’m not stating whether it is or not, I’m just putting forth my opinion on the topic and I ask you to respect it, or argue against it in a respectable manner.

Now everyone will unanimously agree that the life of an individual is the greatest gift/ asset he or she can ever have. It is irreplaceable. So if you look at a life from that perspective, the only thing that can compensate a life is a life. Now we must understand that in most countries, or correct me if I say, all countries, a death penalty is generally given when a person has committed a murder of the highest degree. In most cases even a murderer is not given a death penalty unless there have been multiple murders or the crime is completely unacceptable. So in that case, if a person takes a life, what right does he have to say, my life doesn’t deserve to be taken?

Coming To the point of, how can the court decide whether to take the life or a person? Now the government, which constitutes of the judiciary (Court) is in charge of the law and order of the country. It is their obligation to the residents of the country to ensure peace and the safety of the citizens and the country as a whole. So if one of their citizens is murdered, within their federal boundaries, it is their right and duty to take severe action against the person who has committed the crime. So if a person commits such a crime, he must bear in mind that the government will not just sit back and watch it happen. They will take action.

Also, in my opinion, a death penalty serves as a tool of fear to prevent murders. They think twice before committing a crime. Just like in the olden days, the concept ofblood and iron‘and ‘an eye for an eye & a tooth for a tooththis concept keeps the people in check.

It might seem really heartless, but I’m completely FOR the policy of The Death Penalty because the people who've been sentenced to death have brought to themselves.

So Until Next Time,
Parichay.

The Sky. Its like the Birthplace of Thoughts.


Do you ever have those days? Those days where you just look out your window. Just watch the sky. The clouds passing by. Occasionaly seeing a mother taking her child out for a walk or a kid taking his dog for a walk?

The day you just let your mind wander. Without thinking of the time that you're spending, or of anything or anyone else.




I do. Quite a lot :) just leave the window open and just watch. Thinking of everything and nothing at the same time :)

It feels nice. Leaving your worries aside for a brief
period of time :) just wandering in thought. Watching the cars move by. Just watching Life move by.
It feels great :) try it out sometime :)


Until Next Time,

Michael Joseph Jackson :)

<3

King. Legend. Brilliance at its best.
He was a bridge. Between generations. He was that one artist who our parents liked, and we loved. A name on everyone’s mind. Michael Jackson. Its really really rare. But I guess that’s Michael Jackson for us (:
He’s been dead one and a half years, yet there are those fans who are not willing to let go. I’m of those fans. We heard of his death, cried a lot,  but this is one guy who’s lived on even after his death. In the hearts of god knows how many millions.

If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with. 
~Michael Jackson 

He changed the meaning of pop. From the music to the dance. He was a revolution. A craze. He was Michael Jackson.

Even today he is not forgotten. A new album, Michael, was released with some of his previously not released songs.
Also a new Xbox 360 Kinect and PS3 Move game on Michael Jackson is soon to hit the stores. Cirque du Soleil, the famous troupe, is set to do a North America tour, as a tribute to Michael Jackson. He might not be around in person, but his music NEVER grows old. The beat, the lyrics, the DANCE <3
To anyone out there who’s not heard His Classics like Thriller, Beat it, Billie Jean, Heal the World, Black or white, Bad, Jam, Man in the Mirror. God I could go on and on, PLEASE. Go and hear those songs. They’re out of this world :)

This is a tribute to Michael Jackson (:
May he Rest in Peace in the Heavens above.

A New Year (: A New Beginning :)

The New Year is here. 2011. Marking more than just a new year. For me its technically one of the most important years of my life considering that I have my boards this year. But the purpose of this blogpost is not discussing my exams don’t worry :P
The year marks the start of a new decade.2011 – 2020

A year has a combination of both good moments and bad moments. Moments that make you smile when you remember them and moments which make you cry. So how does one justify whether the year was good or not? By just keeping  one memory in mind?
Nope.

Just look back at the year month by month. Think if you would like to relive that month if you had the choice. And after all that judge whether you actually hated the year overall or you’re just saying that because of one incident.

Out of my 12 months, I would do anything to re-live 10 of the months. The last two months of the year were not were ‘fun filled’. But on the whole, I love 2010. I loved the summer. I made some great new friends over the year. Lost friends who were really close to me.

2010 has been one hell of a ride. It makes roller coasters with upside down loops seem dull. some of the happiest and saddest moments of my life have been in the this year. Its been one mad year.

A lot of people I know keep hoping that 2011 will be better than 2010. To them I would like to say something. Why simply stop at hoping? If you wish your year to be better than the last. Get out there and MAKE it happen. * Be the change you wish to see *. Make this year a year worth remembering. Live it to the fullest. Live every minute of those 525,960 minutes. Okaay fine maybe not every minute considering that you’ll be sleeping and blah blah for so many minutes. xD

But yeah, you get the message. :)

                                                        
                  A New Year and a New Beginning :) 

So that’s about it for this post (:
Wishing all of you readers out there a very very happy new year. May it be a year filled with happiness, success and prosperity :)
Take care,
Until next time,

~ Parichay (:
