I hope

Andy Dufresne: You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific?
Red: No.
Andy Dufresne: They say it has no memory. That’s where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.
Red: Let me tell you something my friend.
Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.

Andy Dufresne: [in letter to Red] Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
[last lines]
Red: [narrating] I find I’m so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.


Shawshanks Redemption is much more than just a movie. I always look to the above passage and image when I am down, clueless, hopeless. No I can’t be hopeless but hope drives me crazy, but it is necessary to keep that flame alive.

Andy taught me to make the very best of whatever situation you are in, and even when life seems to be unfair or has nothing much to offer, don’t let it steal one thing from you ‘hope’. That is why I hope.

Feeling Great About this

Got a toefl score of 116/120 something way above my expectations .. Really feeling great about this .. took a while to believe if this was true and it was … ūüôā

reading Рawesome 30/30 (thanks to all the books I have read in the past decade and the news I read everyday)
listening Рawesome 30/30 ( thanks to the n no. of movies, tvseries and ebooks i have watched and listened)
writing Рawesome 29/30 ( thanks to blogging)
speaking¬†–¬†awesome too . I was so¬†scared of this section.¬†27/30 (inspite of not giving this area its fair share of time)

Hope this will help me in the coming 2 years and this compensations my below average gre verbal score to a great extent.

Scores are ready.
Now comes the real tough hard path. Now the only question unanswered is WHEN
Lets see if I am able to fly and in that case where do i land.

There is something which I have been holding on for long. It disturbed me, bothered me, affected me, but I didn’t let it go keeping in mind why i hold it on for long. I don’t think I was wrong in doing that. But sadly now its getting too heavy to carry, its time to leave some space empty again. I have to let it go … I did my best, whatever I could do to my fullest, but still .. I did my best as human, sometimes you know God has to play a role or Maybe God has some other plans but If its meant for me it shall come back ..
I always believe in hope .. Its up to God not to prove me wrong .. I am done with my part in this story .. Let Go

I shall never term it as a mistake, but an experience be it good or bad ..
