When the sarkarilization began…things change completely.. and we realize the potential of power dynamic, caste dynamic at every single level of work… even moving in my official car crates a gap between me and my people.. despite the fact that laat batti is removed…except police and ambulence …looking from my window…and searching the true spirit of my service in between the hills of Nagaland… That’s precisely I’ve been doing since past one month or so. The situation has really kept me quite busy.. (with planting trees and creating social bonds with the locals and various tribes) especially after Honorable PM Modi visited here last week and had a meeting with all DMs and secretaries from north east in Nagaland
Some glimpses of Nagaland …
The hills and the climate reminds me of our “last dukaan” episode with Harsh, Niharika, Akansha, Aakriti and of course Rahul during the academy training which I miss badly… today we all are serving in different parts of India ,,,but theses memories still binds us and hopefully it will forever !
In the mean time I went to Calcutta for some work for 5 days and guess what.. I got myself into some business deals…technically I’m not a business person till this Raksha bandhan… On rakhsha bandhan in order to extend my school property from Kalimpong( Darjeeling) to the south Digha( purba mednipur, west bengal) I purchased a small Kanishka hotel/ lodge… The above pictures are the back, front, and side views from the hotel…renovation work is on…along with booking ..so basically bought a running business !!
Once the deal was finalized, I requested my family members to visit as I wanted to surprise them.. These are some pictures of my family… Didi, her son(jerry) and Dad… These are perhaps some good moments which I witnessed after 3 years of silence since I lost Maa..
Here I got some time for myself.. in these few days I learned few lessons that this ocean taught me.. Wrote poems, finished few sketches, sang songs, remembering my love and feeling her presence in the flowing wind as if she was all around me.. asked loads of question and yet to get the solutions. Missed her a lot but I know she is happy and doing great. I’m happy for to see her taking every step towards developing herself and conquering her fears. Prayers and wishes will be there for her for the rest of my life ..
While going back to Nagaland… I also finished my blog nominations… because I knew that once I’m into that zone.. it would become very difficult to thank those wonderful blogger friends of mine who appreciated and acknowledged my work. Thus the two nominations are as follows..
Liebster Award !!
Blogging is sharing some of our space, time, information and views with this virtual platform called “Wp” Weeks ago I got nominated for & Blue Sky Tag award by a wonderful blogger friend Shivangi Mishra ! Do follow her blog , it will be a delight for sure ….
I want to thank her for appreciating my work and nominating me for this award. It really means a lot. Its my third Liebster Award and I’m really excited to bag this one. I still feel the same kind of excitement when I received my first award nomination in 2015.. Although I used to be extremely poor in accepting appreciation but, fortunately learned this art too. 😀 .

My nominees are !!
I request to all to read their blogs and follow them if possible !!
Questions that were asked from me –
- What does blogging meant to you??
Blogging tolerates all my frustrations, endure all my stupidest ideas and thoughts, and gives me that space which we all look for.. so it helps to sustain my sanity !!
- Who is your ideal person??
I admire four people like the most.. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Mother Teresa, Swami Vivekananda and Subhash Chandra Bose
- Can you write a line about your best friend??
My best friend is my life savior.. my support system, my mirror and my source of happiness !!
- What was the happiest day of your life??
When I got my first gold medal during my B.A. LL.B (Hons.) I thought it to be my happiest day but while in my masters I received 5 gold medals and the value has reduced by that time.. Even clearing UPSC CSE 2015 was not something that could generate happiness… so I guess the happiest day would be the day when I realised that I have fallen in love 2 years back.. and everyday pray to god for her success and safety wherever she is ..
My turn to ask questions from nominees:
I found these above questions quite well thought of so I would like to ask these same question and want to know from my nominees…if they accept and agree to reply back!!
Blue Sky Tag !!
I am extremely happy by this nomination as its my 18th award nomination since 2015 and I value them a lot. I would like to thank Vidisha for nominating me for Blue Sky Tag. I would like to mention here that she is also an awesome blogger and her beauty lies in her words full of honesty and simplicity. I would request everyone to visit her blog vidishakaithal.wordpress.com

- My Valiant Soul
1. Are you a cat person or dog person?
Dog for sure. I admire the sense of loyalty which they possess !!
2. Which achievement of yours you are most proud off?
My First gold medal after my law graduation
3. If you are really drunk, you are most likely to?
I don’t drink at all…so i really cannot say but hypothetically if I consider myself drunk then I would sleep quietly in my corner.
4. If you happen to adopt a celebrity, who it would be?
5. One word for Bollywood.
Our biggest source that generates soft power ..so it is one of the tool in our diplomacy.. Otherwise I’m not that much interested in films except few !
6. Last message to your ex would be?
I don’t believe in “Ex” .. for me love or relationship is something which is not dependent on the fulfillment of any prior conditions.. So once I’m in …I’m there forever be it one sided, unrequited, or if someone leaves me in between… I would hang in and would pray for her success and health forever because I respect my feeling and also my partner. so my message will always be to my partner/ my soul mate and not to my “Ex”
7. Hands or forks and spoons?
Depends upon the food.. if its pani puri, chaat, or paranthe… then surely I would use my hands.
8. Last used emoji of your whatsapp is?
I rarely use them… they are very deceptive !!
9. What is the first thing you do every morning?
Talk to mom through her picture, then move to my newspaper desk with a cup of tea/ coffee
10. What is the one thing you want to do before you turn 30?
I wanted to begin my own new school at Digha ( West Bengal) near to our recently purchased hotel as an extension of my kalimpong (near Darjeeling) school.
11. One dish you absolutely love? ❤
Anything with family especially if made by mothers !!
There is no doubt that all these questions are very well designed and thought of. these are some real good questions to know something about a person’s nature and character at the first go .. provided he/she is being honest in replying them which I presume they would be.. therefore I would love to ask these questions again to my nominees
Loads of love and respect for my love
P.S. From next posts I’ll be dealing with notes as promised !!
