Beyond Love (True Story Of A Dipsite) (Aakshey Talwar)

Originally published at:

Dear Friend,

You definitely don’t want to be bored with a sermon. Being a copywriter, I ought to know to not do that to you. So. I’ll keep this short for you.

You probably want to know who the hell am I? I’m Aakshey Talwar. And I was diagnosed with Asperger’s when I was in class 9. You saw SRK in My Name is Khan? For now, this introduction should suffice.

But. I have set out on a journey that none of my *normal* school and college mates dared to take. You’re probably wondering what the heck is this guy talking about.

I’ll get that to that in a bit.

I’ll be telling you 2 short stories today. Just 2 of them. No big deal.

These short stories form the basis of who I’m today. And I’m sure they will help you in some way or the other, in your own journey.

First, let us talk about love.

Back in DPS RKP, in class 11, I fell in love. And I was madly in love. Her name was Annie. And I found her beautiful.

I found life harsh because she used to hate me. You probably know how terrible and painful that feels. Time didn’t stop though.

School ended. And of course, there wasn’t much hope after that.

But. I hope you don’t love anybody that way. Because it is poison. But. Now we’re moving off topic.

The question is why did Annie hate me?

And the answer is simple. I was different. Weird in fact. Teenagers, and popular girls in particular don’t like that. One bit. You’d agree with that perhaps.

My classmates used to call me an Alien due to my stratospheric IQ but weird behaviour.

And most of all, I just didn’t have the courage to approach Annie directly. I never got the courage to talk to her confidently. Even though she was in the same school bus!

And as you probably know, girls hate lack of confidence. And I was as under confident as one could be.

Long story short, Annie was never in my life as my GF.

And it was the biggest setback ever. You’d probably not want anything remotely similar to happen to you. Pray it doesn’t happen to you. And I’ll pray for you too.

And the biggest hurdle that was there was overcoming that Asperger related behaviour. You understand that. Right?

Anyway, enough about the first story.

You probably want to hear the next one.

The final one.

My love for Annie made me start my own company. Weaving Thoughts. When I was not even 18 years old.

Yes, I did enrol in a full time college course. From Delhi University, no less. I attended Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies and majored in Finance. And I did graduate as well. Albeit. I just about passed. But that isn’t what we are talking about right now. Right?

Coming back to the point.

Back in 2008, age 18 years, I still loved Annie. A lot. And that will never change. It hasn’t changed in 2016 either. And starting Weaving Thoughts was the best way I could think of to impress her. And to earn enough to buy gifts for her. Of course the gifting part never materialised.

You’d have done the same thing. Right? Thought so!

And later on Weaving Thoughts was to become my dream. My passion. My love. My life. I didn’t need to take up a job when my friends were taking up jobs or going for higher education.

There were times of success and those of failure. And even now I’m still recuperating from a low. But at least I’m happier than ever and I can see a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel.

To top it all. I have been on anti-depressants ever since school ended. I have been suicidal for a significant part of this journey. And not everything is hunk dory even now. As you’d probably have guessed.

But.

There is a point I’m trying to make.

Had Annie not been in my life as an inspiration, I would have never started Weaving Thoughts.

Had I not started Weaving Thoughts, I would just be an unhappy and disgruntled employee in a corporate job with no existence of his own. I would never have been happy. And I wouldn’t know what to do about it either.

Had Annie accepted me, I don’t know whether I’d have taken out enough time to pursue Weaving Thoughts through college.

And this is just the tip of the ice berg.

There is a lot of stuff that never made sense till even a year ago. And there is much that doesn’t make sense even now.

But.

Once you believe that you reside in the Creator of the Universe. And that he resides in you. And. That you and the Lord are all but one. You’ll be better equipped to deal with the problems that come.

It may not always work out. But. Do you know anything that will?

And just to show a glimpse of how much I loved Annie:

Back in grade 12, when all of us were 17 year olds, Annie had kept a Karwa Chauth fast for her then boyfriend, who of course didn’t do the same for her! Frustrated at the thought of enjoying my meal while she was hungry and thirsty, I decided to keep one for her myself. That day, I didn’t drink a drop of water nor ate a bite of food till I broke my fast with her pic when the moon came out. Of course, she doesn’t know this even today. (I did drink a few drops of water early morning with my medicines, but that’s it!)

P.S. The name of my love has been changed to Annie to maintain her privacy. Which becomes even more important now that she’s happily married. Not to me of course! I’m single and ready to mingle.

P.P.S. Some 340 or so poems that I wrote for Annie, that I have self published on Amazon.com. Across two volumes.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – The Handsome And Muscular Hunk!

Samsung has proved itself once again! The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a perfect combination of good looks and great performance.

The S7 Edge looks cool like other smartphones from Samsung’s Galaxy lineup. Add some more subtle curves, and you have a comfortable smartphone. They have made it waterproof and dust-resistant like the Samsung Galaxy S5. So, you’ll love it.

How Has The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Changed Compared to Previous Galaxy Phones

Samsung has improved upon the design of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6. It’s sleek. It has subtle curves. It looks great. It feels comfortable.

Think of the features you missed since Galaxy S5. Samsung has brought them back. Yes. Galaxy S7 Edge is waterproof and dust-resistant. And it also comes with a micro SD card slot. Yes. That has finally happened. Way to go Samsung!

With a drastic improvement in the battery, Samsung has hit the right chords. This new smartphone is crazy fast to cherry the cake.

How It Fares In Comparison To Apple’s iPhone 6S Plus

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge Plus is a tough competitor to Apple’s iPhone 6S Plus.

• Samsung has tweaked its design in the right spots. Metal alloy and 3D Glass blend seamlessly to create a far better-looking smartphone than the iPhone.
• Super AMOLED panel technology gives the Galaxy S7 Edge’s LCD, better contrast and more accurate colors than the iPhone 6S Plus.
• Both are equally powerful. Samsung’s Exynos 8 is as powerful as Apple’s A9 CPU.
• Though the iPhone can capture more accurate photos in bright daylight, the Galaxy S7 Edge takes brighter, clearer and faster pictures in dim light conditions.
• Android 6 may be more advanced than iOS in more ways than one. However, Apple’s iPhone is more in sync with its software, iOS 9.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Really That Great?

Samsung has taken care of this. You can see some very useful features in this new phone. From looks to performance, you can feel the improvement.

Designed To Look And Feel Beautiful

Samsung has crafted the Galaxy S7 Edge with high-end components. With the help of 3D thermoforming, they melted 3D glass. And gave it subtle but perfect curves. Curves on its rear make it comfortable to hold.

As an add-on is its convenient screen size. Compared to the 5.1-inch Galaxy S7, the Edge version has a screen size of 5.5 inches.

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge Is Weatherproof!

What more can you ask of a phone’s design! Your Galaxy S7 Edge is waterproof. And resistant to dust too!

It can be safe in up to 1.5 m of water for 30 whole minutes. So you do not have to think twice before pulling out your phone in rain and snow.

Be careful to have it dry, though, before you plug it in for charging!

An Incredibly Well Performing Dual Pixel 12MP Camera In Your Hands

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge is the first smartphone to feature a dual pixel camera. Its image sensor has a brighter lens, the F1.7, and larger 1.4m pixels. Now take photographs with great clarity, in light, and in dark.

Bring Your Photos And Panoramas To Life

A new feature! An elegant one at that! You can now bring your panoramas to life. Watch your panorama as a series of graceful movements. And that too with just a swipe or a pan.

With motion photo, bring your photos to life. Watch the three seconds before the image and choose the still you like most.

Powerful Performance

According to an analysis in GSMArena’s latest review of the phone, it has proved to be one of the most powerful smartphones today.

Is Everything So Nice About Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge?

Well, there are just a few pitfalls like,

• It is expensive
• You need to handle it with care. Protection cases may feel like a compromise with its stylish looks.

However, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a great smartphone to own. It is in fact worth its money. You can boast of owning a beautifully designed smartphone. And that too, one of the most powerful ones in the market.

Primary keyword: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (6 times including title)

LSI keywords:

Variants: Samsung’s Galaxy lineup, Samsung S5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S7 Edge’s, Galaxy S7 Edge

Much Needed Words Of Assurance From The Center

Students at the National Institute of Technology, Srinagar have been assured by many political figures that their safety is of prime concern. The center has taken steps to ensure that the college continues to work normally. The ministers are trying to make students feel safe on campus.

Cricket Leads To Crisis

It all started on the 31st of March when India lost the semi-finals of the World T20 Cup. The defeat in the match against West Indies saddened Indians.

At such a time, a handful of locally residing students of NIT Srinagar celebrated India’s loss with a few crackers.

Other students were infuriated by this. They reacted with protests. This led to a clash between students, now divided into two groups.

Authorities Shut College Down

The protests continued. Students tried to hoist the Indian flag at the administrative block of the college. Both groups of students shouted serious slogans.

The campus no longer felt safe. The administrative authorities of the college had to close the campus down.

It remained closed from Saturday, 1st of March till the following Monday.
With tight security both from the local police and from paramilitary forces, the college reopened on Monday.

Further Protests

Despite the presence of security forces, fresh protests were carried out by students.

Students from the non-resident group expressed their desire to leave the college and head back home.

Clash With The Local Police

Attempts by the police to calm the angered students resulted in more chaos.

A few students who were protesting pushed a senior police officer. Police then had to use the force of lathi-charge. A few students were injured.

The Center Steps In

To ease the tension at the campus, the Central and State Ministry are trying to make the campus safe for students. There have been assurances by a few ministers that the campus will be safe again.

Can Students Feel Safe

Some of the steps taken by the HRD Ministry with proper employment of security forces can help students feel safe again. The following are some reasons to feel safe:

• Assurance from Home Minister Rajnath Singh
• Assurance from Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti
• Assurance from HRD Minister Smriti Irani
• Visit by a team of director-level officers from the ministry.

The Home Minister has spoken to the J&K Chief Minister, who has also assured that the college will be back to normal soon. HRD Minister Smriti Irani has also spoken to the Chief Minister regarding the same.

The team of officers from the HRD ministry has spoken to students and tried for reconciliation. They are trying to bring back the students’ confidence in the safety of their premises.

Inquiry Into The Incident

The Chief Minister has also assured to conduct an inquiry to know more about how it all happened. Those responsible could then be addressed to.

All the above and ongoing attempts to restore safety should make the students feel safe again. Life at the college on the banks of picturesque Dal Lake should come back to normal.

Fast Food Chains – Bustling Hubs Of Modern Indian Cities

Whether you want to grab a quick meal or hang out at a party with friends, you are sure to think of fast food chains. They are convenient, quick, happening, and friendly on the pocket as well.

Every minute rushes past in today’s life. ‘Fast’ is the new mantra of life. And chains of fast food have come as a blessing to aid us in whizzing through busy days.

Good At Providing Fast Service

Fast food joints may not have extensive table service like big restaurants. But they specialize in serving quick meals. And thus, they are rightly called quick service restaurants.

Rapidly Spreading Fast Food Chains

Recent years have witnessed the mushrooming of fast food restaurants throughout India, especially in big cities.

They have been quickly spreading across smaller cities and towns. Even narrow little streets of India are today home to fast food joints, both Indian and international, always ready to satisfy food-lovers.

Why Quick Service Restaurants Are So Popular

• They provide an easy means to grab a quick meal on the way to work or during travel.
• They provide convenient takeaway and home delivery options.
• They are economical.
• With more and more people traveling abroad and embracing worldwide food, there has been an expansion of the taste palate. These restaurants provide a diverse choice of quick food.
• A growing economy thanks to a greater number of young working men and women has also led to citizens being more ready to spend on food.

Bringing Together A Wide Palate

Indian fast food restaurant chains are diverse, coming from different states of the country.

If you want to have a taste of North Indian street food with their tangy and sweet flavors, look no further than Haldiram’s, Bikanerwala or Nirula’s down the corner of a street. You can drop in for a quick meal and also satisfy your sweet tooth. They are a vegetarian’s paradise.

You can get a very good taste of the south at restaurants like Saravana Bhavan and Darshini.

Goli vada pav brings to you the famous dish of the streets of Mumbai along with its modern modifications like cheese vada pav.

Please your taste buds at Wow! Momo with bites of Darjeeling’s famous street food.

From Across The Borders

Early global entrants like McDonald’s faced many challenges in the beginning. Gradually, with modifications to their menu and policies, they have made their place in the Indian market. Today more and more International culinary chains are happily thriving in Indian streets.

International Culinary Chains

Delight yourself with a spicier version of McDonald’s burger, even if you are a vegetarian. There are options tailor-made for the Indian palate. Also, McDonald’s does not use beef in India.

Try Nando’s, KFC, Dunkin’ Donuts and many other fast food chains for a diverse taste from around the world.

Entertainment For All Occasions

If you are a part of the 360 billion youth of India and are hungry for more variety than ever before, any of these joints can satisfy you.

They can also please the traditional foodie with many of them including the most loved traditional flavors.

Many of these chains have a child-friendly atmosphere making them great for the entire family and also for organizing kids’ birthday parties.

Though these foods aren’t very friendly to the health conscious, many fast food chains are providing healthy alternatives to their dishes. They are definitely a great alternative to expensive dine-in restaurants when you want a little break from cooking at home.

What Is A Review Copy?

weavingthoughts Training March 13, 2016

A review copy need not be a review. It could even be a PR, article, website copy or something else. Depends on the project and what the client ordered.

Let me explain with the help of an example.

When you go to an ice-cream parlour, you ask the vendor to allow you to taste an ice-cream or two, without paying another. Just enough to taste, though.

Similarly, a review copy is a sample.

A sample that the client ordered from Weaving Thoughts (without paying us), to check the level of our service. So. You have to put your best foot forward. So as to crack the deal!

Of course, you’ll get paid as long as what you write is acceptable to the team. But we are NOT paid. It is done to win new clients.

It is our USP!

 

All the best. Nail it!

God Bless

Training For Reviews

weavingthoughts Training March 13, 2016

Have you ever read a movie review or a game review?

That is the tone and format to follow over here.

It will be in third person, ‘They’.

You’ll review them and try to give your opinion, but it most be positive overall and must sound natural. A negative here and there may help to make it more believable but the overall tone must be positive. Unless specified otherwise.

The general rule is:

40% positive – 40% neutral – 20% negative

Don’t be overly negative. Don’t be overly positive.

Be natural and neutral. The review must be genuine and believable. And worthy of an authority website like Forbes.com or About.com

Be neutral to slightly positive in tonality.

Don’t be overly optimistic and don’t try to tell it as the best thing in its class.

Be real. Be genuine. But be neutral to very slightly positive in tone.

Don’t flaff or be over proud. Do NOT over do it!

You’re not a third rate salesman. Be genuine. Focus on the merits and mention the demerits. Convince naturally. Don’t by pushing. People like to buy from you. But only if you’re not trying to sell to them 😀

You’ll include sections with headings in bold like:

Features

Target Audience/Market

USPs
Performance/Quality
Customer service
Bottom line / Would you recommend or not
Rating (depends on the projectPros

Pros
Cons
Other relevant headings

Etc

You get the idea?

But try not to use generic sub-headings like Pros, Features etc. Be creative. The title and sub-headings should be long, catchy and descriptive.

Something along those lines.

 

All the best, God Bless!

Training For Website Content

weavingthoughts Training March 13, 2016

Website content is content written on the main website.

Like content on a corporate website.

For instance, Apple.com, Microsoft.com, WeavingThoughts.com etc.

You don’t use ‘They’ or ‘I’.

You use ‘We’.

You’re representing the company and writing on their behalf.

Example: At IM Motors, we ensure that the customer is always well taken care of. Our clients believe that we would never let them down. The best technology is used over here.

And so on. Don’t over do it.

It should be natural, informative and factual. And of course, interactive/interesting.

But the tone has to be of a rep. Not of a third party or reviewer or journalist.

 

Thank You so much, God Bless!
