Some Changes in my Life

I have been trying from sometime to live a disciplined life, on some accounts I have been doing OK but on most I have failed but still from time to time I try to add something or the other to make my living more clean.

My Family knows about this and do not interfere much with my lifestyle although they do not follow it much themselves, like if we are out for IceCream I through the wrapper in the dustbin and if it is not available I'll put it in my pocket and throw it back in dustbin at home similarly when I see someone from my family just throwing the wrapper in open I pick it up[thinking next time they would not do but it doesn't happen]. 

Since many days or I should say years I have been downloading lots of pirated music and stuffs[which most of us do] and few months back a twitter friend of mine posted a tweet about him being against using pirated products which made my eyes roll. Intentionally or unintentionally we daily use lots of non genuine or pirated stuffs which makes quite a big hole in owners pockets. So I decided to stop using such things.

Its a difficult task to follow I know and I may end up using such pirated items by mistake but I think gradually I can improve on it.

Now what things I have stopped using from now on ?

During my daily #delhimetro travel I used to pass my time by listening to music which I had stored on my phone, I had only once in my life purchased genuine music online and that too some songs that I didn't liked much. So I had deleted all the songs that were stored in my phone and now I don't have anything to listen to. Now to overcome it I need to purchase music I had sought some options like purchasing a particular song[which I really like] through Flipkart which costs around 5-15 INR or more, a friend of mine has told me to use Nokia Music which lets you download unlimited music at around 100 INR per month but then I don't have a Nokia Phone[my mom has one though].If you know any cheaper source kindly enlighten me on it.

In day to day life we watch latest Bollywood flicks or some Classic Hollywood movies but as most of them are downloaded illegally hence I can not use them also ,I have a huge collection of them in my laptop so they are also getting out from it. My Colleagues were the source of such kinda movies to me and when I told them about my intentions there reactions were like are you Mad ? Some smiled  about it some think I am overreacting and my Sister call me "Sanki"[don't know what you call Sanki in English]. Asked a friend of mine how to manage with this  the suggestion was to purchase movies on rent from libraries. Me being a very lazy person doesn't look like would go to a library to ask for a movie so If a friend of mine who is having original dvd of some flick can only help me here. If you have anything to help kindly share to me.

Last year I had purchased my Cellphone and I have over explored it I guess and have been quite instrumental to use applications which are paid on the market by downloading them illegally and also have spread them on to many of my friends too. All such applications and their setups are now out of my Phone. Now how should I cope with it ? If there is a certain paid app which I want I could try a similar non paid app or a free version of that app[if there is one] or may be purchase it, I tried once to purhchase an app from Google Play store but was not successful[they told my Card was not valid].

Now the hardest of the thing - is to speak truth. I know I can cope with the things I mentioned above but this one is bit tough for me. Although I don't lie much but then I have some tendency to lie when someone ask me where are you / would you do this / can you help me in this / do you know how to do this / are you free on that day ? I tend to make false statement when such kinda things are asked to me If I am not open to such questions, then for escaping from one false statement I have to make another one and I end up nowhere. Now what I am doing about it ? Everytime such things comes up I try to think about the result, am I doing a good thing by fooling someone I ask this to myself, it helps a little but there are things which becomes habit and takes time to go off. Again if you have any advice throw it towards me.

Now what could be the implications of such lifestyle on my life ? Whats foremost coming to my mind is what I would say to my Sister when she returns to home later next year as I know she will ask for movies that were in my laptop and music in my phone which she enjoys quite a lot. She would be rude to me but then I don't have any choice, I could spend a little money on it which would not do, may be she would second my thinking [no chance of it]. Another implication which could happen in coming years is when I get married, the lady would think this guy is completely out of his mind[she would actually] may be she would change me and I would be back to square one ? Who knows this might  happen they can do anything.

After reading this much please do not think I am a perfect person and very sane one, infact If I start searching for a single limitation in me I would end up finding many. I don't have any intention or want to force anyone to start following what I have written here in their own lives. There are possibilities that instead of doing anything good in your life it might badly hurt you. 

In future if I found anything other than these things[ I would certainly] which I should start following or prohibit myself from I would definitely go for them and If you have any suggestion what I should or should not do please tell me I would like to encorporate them in my life too.

Friends From Memory

I guess I have written this here before - when I am free and don't have any work to do my favorite pass time is to read some interesting Blogs and few days back I was going through my twitter timeline came upon a link from Tajim's tweet and it landed me here. At that time only I decided it is a nice concept and I should also replicate it on my Blog.

During my School period I got opportunity to make many friends primarily because my Father was in a transferable job and after every 5 years we used to change our place and so we have to change our School also.

Today I will try to remember all the friends that I had during this period of my Schooling, some I am still in touch[very few] but with  most of them I am not in touch.

P.S - My Best Friend Manish insisted me to write a Post on my views about Politics,I told him that I would write on my next post but could not write to which I could only say that I would write soon but not sure when, in the mean time I would request him to write his Political views on his blog to which we had not update since ages.

Also Today is Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri[Manish always remembers him so good of him] hence a nice day to write a post.
