P-art of the Puzzle!

I thank Jyot Rekhi ,Sujata Vedula and Saniya Hussain for asking me to write something new and more importantly Imran Mujawar and Akshay Jain for being there when this was discussed.

Part of Puzzle Ram santosh, source:
Engineering is finally over and now its time for us to get jobs.Imran and I were discussing how to go about this job hunt because both of us are devoid of exceptional academic records.This conversation had been going on ever since the day exams ended.In the mean while I had to clean my table laden with books (I dunno how many I actually read) and my cupboard and clear some old books.I found a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle that I hadn't touched for years now.

I remembered how easy it was to first pick up the pieces with least number of  interlocking sides.. and place them at the top and sides.Then you pick up the pieces which are the largest or most clearly visible or with  similar colour patterns ,those that make sense to the eye and place them in the puzzle..Eventually I'd be left with some really complex pieces of the puzzle which are a bit difficult to understand .You don't know which is side up or side down u keep postponing them to place them in the end..they are generally the smallest but the toughest to place..They get ignored by us at the beginning because they aren't easily understood. But eventually you have to put them into the puzzle to complete the jigsaw and it is complete only after that tiny /complex/ignored piece has been placed and till then the puzzle is incomplete.

Ram Santosh-Part of puzzle,

I met Imran in the afternoon and as we discussed about our attempts to get jobs again ,I thought may be we are ignored now, may be our credentials aren't understood,may be our academics are complex but they need us We complete the puzzle .Each one has a role to play and this thought assured us we will be working sometime ahead if not soon.We decided what to do with our resumes and where to post them and suddenly felt much better.

Part of the puzzle -Ram
Its been more than two months I wrote last and some very nice people have been asking me "What happened? no more writing?" and when I say "you follow my blog?" and they say " ever since u started".I was left behind with a smile..a smile that ran deeper than just my face.I sure smile always, but this one ,I felt as if i cant pull back my cheek muscles.Appreciation does make you feel alive and worthy.

No matter how you write good/bad you are, how charming/boring you are needed by lot of people, you are needed by the world .You form a part of their puzzle..and you complete them.However small and complex you may be,you sure have a place in the puzzle.

The world is a big puzzle and without you It ain't complete. You fit in somewhere.
Smile and have fun with life.
Wish me luck to find my puzzle soon ;)

Heartfelt thank you to all image sources...this post would have been dry if not for the perfect images


  1. tooo good liked it ram....u will find a job soon...chilll kar...take care...keep writin such awesome stuffs..

  2. Congrats for the end of final exams dude.. Good riddance!! Back where you belong.
    Again nice met'. Just a thought to compliment yours though - With so many puzzles around one feels like a part that does not belong. I didn't. Jo 1 ghanta lecture nahi beth saka vo dinbhar office me kya tikega! Select to hua (every time miraculously!)par 2 din se zyaada tik nahi paaya. Not everyone is cut out for the job scene.
    So once once again I'm thinkin about
    Takin' the easy way out!
    Guess am a peice of the wrong puzzle. Looking for it. Till then...

  3. nice post. best of luck for your job hunt.

  4. nicely put, ram... i am glad we find place somewhere in each other's life puzzles.. hehe..

  5. The connect is perfect at the end!!

  6. very true...we are all part of puzzle and a puzzle is always incomplete even if one piece is missing...u always think i wish i had it! we all need to find where we fit in and which puzzle do we help in completing...and its not that u hit the target in the first the one piece placed in different positions...even we try in the same manner..and then comes the day where we fit in perfectly..and not just with jobs..its the same for every other aspect of our life..

    all the best for ur job hunt...and it goes without saying...another amazing post ! :)

    There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill,and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle - Unknown

    "if i can ease one life the aching,

  17. Nice.

    The puzzle of life will never be completed. We will always find new pieces matching up, extending the original plot.
    Just enjoy the part of searching and putting the pieces together; because actual fun of the game lies in the process and not the result.

    A journey is not the footsteps you leave behind. A journey is the space between two footsteps.

    May you find the missing piece soon.

  18. its amazing how you ended this effortlessly.
