Objects in Space

As 2016 dawns upon me, I await for it with a child-like inquisitiveness and immense hope that it will be another interesting ride in my life. 2015 was special to me, because I have a feeling that I am back to my ‘best me’, the ‘me’ who is curious, confident and ready to take up the new challenge thrown at me. This year I make progress with my german, started learning mandarin. Read books which for me were the best of all I have read till now (though i did not reach my target). Did not run enough. Was mindful and practiced minimalism to the maximum. I have been more disciplined than I could have imagined to be, I am happy about it. I made some good friends though I could not keep in touch with my old ones. So this year has been a mix of ups and downs , like I want it to be. I made some progress with my interest in astronomy and astrophotography. With that note, I look forward to 2016! I leave you all with some pictures of ‘objects in space‘ that I took this month 🙂

All pictures are taken from a xperia Z smartphone and celestron Firstscope telescope.

Planets – Jupiter and 4 of its moons and Mars. Mars does not look great with my telescope.

Pleiades open cluster (also called M45) in Taurus constellation.

Happy new year 2016!!

Ticks of Lord Time

I am a big Game of Thrones (GoT) fan, I think it is the most brilliant TV shows ever made. I like the GoT theme song which is awesome, but I like Rains of Castemere more than the theme song. I think Rains of Castemere is very powerful. I liked it so much, I kinda changed few words and wrote a new song about my upcoming exams, where I basically fight time to do well in my exams. So here is the song I wrote and here is the cover of original song and its lyrics.

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must work so hard?
Only a student of a masters course,
that’s all the truth I know.
I’m either clueless or I’m in fear,
but I still have the ability,
And I work so hard and study till its late,
just like you always do.
And so he ticked, and so he ticked,
that lord of time,
But now the ticks in my watch,
with no one there to fear.
Yes now the ticks weep in my watch,
coz the exams are already over
Hope I live up to what I have written and give a good exams 😀
