Yesterday we found this absolutely cute kitten in our courtyard. It was black and patches of white.The best part was that it was not scared of anyone..It came near to my leg and started purring .I picked it up and brought it to my room,gave it milk made out of milk powder .After that it went off to sleep.Today morning,she randomly went to everyone's rooms looking for food.Shilpi took care for it the other half of the time when I wasn't.In the afternoon it jumped on my bed and slept for around three hours. I have a picture of her. I have named it 'Pamper'.

Mood-Indigo ,popularly known as Mood-I is the biggest cultural festival in Asia. It is conducted every year during the end of December by the Indian Institute of Technology,Bombay. This year it will be my second time to this festival. Last year was marvelous,gave me the best ideas as to what to do in our college. Mood-I had a lot of group events, especially of 10-12 people.Things like group dance,UV light dance,street play,situational acting etc was a big part of the festival. This year I decided that we could go as a college group and perform at various Mood-I events. Hope to see active participation of MANITians in the formation of group that would go to Mood-I 2008. The dates have been scheduled from 20-23rd December 2008..
Hoping for a trophy!!

Ripple is an annual event organized by Drishtant,the literary society in our college. And the reason why the event is so popular is not only because of the event itself,it is also because of what Drishtant is,and what it taught us in life. It taught us to work like a team,like a family ,and work together for a cause . And Ripple will help us come closer .
I have completed 50% of my undergrad education,and I would be gone from here in the next two years..or rather next one and a half years. And I would'nt be with the college anymore,busy in my job or further studies. But the things that will remain are the memories....
I read in one of th self help books that one should always learn to do that that they fear the most.
If one fears the heights,go bungee jumping.
If one fears the darkness,close yourself in a room for sometime.
If you fear the stage,promise yourself you will speak in public the next time an event in class or your college comes up.
If you fear relationships,get into one.
If you fear falling in love,fall into it and get up.
Fight your worst fears till you've fought and won.
Promise yourself that you would try this the next time you face challenges in your life.

I know this one is going to be skipped by most of you who laze in your chair surfing the net (reading blogs) ,but this one is for you guys the most. Today's world has totally forgotten the importance of staying fit and staying healthy. Year after year, more and more diseases have been coming up and inflicting people with its virus,most of which is because of obesity. One of the most dreadful disease that it is in itself, it is also the main cause of bringing other diseases along with it, major cause of which is reduction of immunity levels in the body. There is a reason why gyms and swimming pools are flooded (literally) with people .
There is a percent of people who understand the grave need of staying fit and not increasing the probability of hitting diseases at an earlier age, but good and bad always go hand in hand,because of which the number of ignorant souls have increased with the same leaps and bounds. I decided to write this blog to create awareness and tips of how you can make little changes in your daily life and stay fitter,stay healthy.
1)Remember,you are what your genetic make-up is made up of. So there may be a few things you might not be changed. But research shows that with regular exercise you can change upto 70% of the diseases that could otherwise have been passed on by your ancestors.
2)Weight of people with the same height can differ because of their difference in bone density.A better and much effective way to check whether your weight is under control or not is BMI (Body Mass Index).
Calculation of BMI is as follows:
Its formula is Weight/(Height in meters)^2 (In SI Units)
|Category||BMI range - kg/m2||BMI Prime||Mass of a 1.8 metres (5 ft 11 in) person with this BMI|
|Severely underweight||less than 16.5||less than 0.60||under 53.5 kilograms (8.42 st/118 lb)|
|Underweight||from 16.5 to 18.5||from 0.6 to 0.74||from 53.5 and 60 kilograms (8.42 and 9.45 st/118 and 132 lb)|
|Normal||from 18.5 to 25||from 0.74 to 1.0||from 60 and 81 kilograms (9.4 and 13 st/130 and 180 lb)|
|Overweight||from 25 to 30||from 1.0 to 1.2||from 81 and 97 kilograms (12.8 and 15.3 st/180 and 210 lb)|
|Obese Class I||from 30 to 35||from 1.2 to 1.4||from 97 and 113 kilograms (15.3 and 17.8 st/210 and 250 lb)|
|Obese Class II||from 35 to 40||from 1.4 to 1.6||from 113 and 130 kilograms (17.8 and 20.5 st/250 and 290 lb)|
|Obese Class III||above 40||above 1.6||above 130 kilograms (20 st/290 lb)|
3)Physical exercise is not done only for improving physical appearance ,but also for improving your stamina. Test for Stamina: CAN YOU CLIMB TEN FLOORS OF A BUILDING AND STILL NOT BE TIRED? If you can do that,then you are going the right way towards a fit life. But if not,then your lifestyle needs serious changes.
4)A lot of people (students specially) thinks its uncool to think of physical fitness and taking care of your health.
MYTH 1: College students are still young and have a high rate of metabolism.
FACT 1: College students are the ones who want to look the best.
Its time people to take a quick look at yourself and see whether you can be considered a fit person or not.
If you're among the 90% students of your college who do not care about physical fitness (In your language :I dont "wanna" care).. Take a good look at yourself and think.!!!
(Coming up with tips in my next blog)

PS-I might also come up with a few resolutions to fulfill by the end of the year (or life's resolutions)...(This is psychology that if you announce to the world,it becomes a matter of self esteem to fulfill it.)
