Come on in!

Hi! I’m Justin Raj, a stock broker by profession, is also a freelance Journalist, an amateur Filmmaker and an enthusiastic Marathoner who possesses the ‘bad habit’ of writing too much. And as long as that ‘bad habit’ stays with me, I keep on posting to my blog.

A blogger is basically a tech-savvy writer. He is a keen observer with a sharing mind, not a silent spectator to all events which happen around him. If a reader is a person who loves to gain knowledge, a blogger or writer is one who loves to share his knowledge and dare to speak out his opinions and ideas. Like a singer expresses by singing, dancer by dancing, actor through acting, a blogger blogs his feelings and ideas out. Literally, Freedom of Expression is his shield and the blog is his Sword.

Here in my blog, write-ups are archived in 9 labels. In ‘Sweet and Bitter’ you can read about my diverse life experiences and valuable lessons I learnt from it. ‘Published Articles’ offers you my articles which have been published in Daily Newspapers. In ‘Random Brain Waves’ you can meet up with my random (or at times, weird) ideas. Poetry writing has eventually become a new hobby as well as a part of my blog. You can read my poems in ‘Verses’. In ‘Marathon’ label, you can read about my marathon experiences, challenges and how running a marathon can shape a man’s life.

‘Vlog’ is a recent addition to my blog as I realize the potential future of visual media. Sometimes, a 3-minute video can do the magic of expression than a 3000 word article. In this label you can watch the short films, documentaries, advertisements et al I have made. ‘Favorite Articles’ consists of articles which have influenced my outlook and attitude on life. Being a tireless traveler, ‘Travel’ label takes you to various travel experiences of mine. Conducting researches is a part of Journalism. In ‘Research Articles’ label you can get articles which throw light on various researches I have conducted.

Every life meets with various challenges, diverse experiences and at the end, all those teach us valuable lessons for our future. Wise men learn by other men's mistakes, fools by their own said H. G. Bohn. I learn more by my own mistakes than others. It doesn’t mean that I’m a fool! I learn from other’s lives too. My blog is a platform for sharing not only my life experiences but also the valuable lessons, ideas and poetry triggered by them.

To my mind, blog is a thinking man's tool. Blogging is more a passion than a hobby for me. It is as if talking something to someone somewhere in world. My words keep on talking to the visitors of my blog. I can feel the magic of words! And that’s the power of blogging!

World of Words

World of words,
It’s where I always want to be…
World of adventures,
It’s where I always love to be…

World of words,
It’s where I see vistas of life…
World of knowledge,
It’s where I mould my dreams…

World of words,
It’s where I play with ideas…
World of fantasies,
It’s where my imagination soars…

World of words,
It’s where I meander freely…
World of solace,
It’s where I take refuge…

World of words,
It’s where I find my fortune…
World of wisdom,
It’s where I find myself…

Blasting in the Woods!

For the students of Madras Christian College (MCC) at Tambaram, February is the month of fun, entertainment and ‘head-banging’ celebration. Finally the time has arrived and the stage has been set for DeepWoods 2010, an annual inter-collegiate cultural extravaganza organized by the College Union Society of MCC from February 10th to 12th.

The highlight of DeepWoods 2010 is the Rock concert by Avial, a popular Malayalee Rock Band along with Light Music show by celebrity singers such as Benny Dayal and Suvi Suresh to name a few. “It’s our first gig in Chennai” says Tony John, one of the singers of Avial “We are in our highest spirits to perform in front of such an awesome, youthful and fantastic crowd” he remarked excitedly.
Holding a marvelous venue surrounded by 365 acres of scenic scrub jungle ecosystem makes this grand gala a unique event in the country. It is also planned and carried out entirely by the students under the guidance of the lecturers. “Students are at the helm of each and every thing going around here. Its gives us huge responsibility besides developing leadership and inter-personal skills in us” says J. Anish C.K, Cultural Convener of College Union Society.
“This is the time of the year I have been waiting for to have a rocking time with my friends. This festival gives us a break from studies with striking fun as a bonus!” exclaimed Debashri Bannerjee, a student of MCC. This year prize money for the winners has upturned to a whopping two and a half lakhs plus lots of goodies. Normally profits generated from this event are well utilized for the student and college welfare.
