Be a hero... Always say "I have no fear". Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness, fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.

This is the message from Swami Vivekananda. Doubtlessly, it sounds highly motivating and brings out the enthusiasm in us to be brave in our lives. Earlier, I used to tell this quote to myself whenever I have a target to meet, or a big task assigned. This helped me a lot. With no fear, we can win the freedom of the world, overcome the barrier of communication, reach new frontiers, and achieve lot more success.

The last time I really feared was before riding the water-scooter (jet-ski) for the first time. It was at HotSprings in Arkansas when all my friends and I decided to have a ride on it. Finally, I am happy that I managed to overcome my fear and had a ride on it. It was easy... and I could get the nack of handling it in a couple of minutes. Now on thinking about the past, I feel silly of me for having feared to have the ride.

Well... This summer is turning out to be a great one. Last weekend (June 11 & 12), my friends and I had an adventure trip to Arkansas. Hey! This state is famous for its outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, trekking, boating, etc. We had every kind of fun here...

On Friday night at 10:00 pm, we started our drive to the best known and largest cave in Arkansas (Blanchard spring caverns). It takes nearly nearly 8 hours of non-stop road drive from Dallas. Then, we visited Hotsprings on our way back to Dallas.

The highways of Arkansas are fenced by huge and dense trees. I found greenery everywhere... The Nature beautic scenes gave a feast for my eyes. A lot of hiking and trekking were done in this trip. We were six of us, and the fun we had was infinite.

It was a great experience in exploring the interiors of the forests, driving on the clean & green highways, climbing up the steep rocks, and getting closer to the waterfalls. We had a grand finale to the trip... Guess what? We had a ride on the ski jet (water scooter). It was a thrilling first-time experience involving a small portion of fear-factor too.

We came back home at 10:00 pm on Sunday. We had an awesome and a memorable trip that weekend.

It was a good first day experience... All the new interns(including me) had an orientation for nearly 4 hours. Then, we met our respective managers and discussed about the product overview. The work ambience is very friendly and co-operative. I was given a cabin (small room), a phone and a system... thats all I need to start off with. I was also educated about the product on which I will be working on, and I feel very comfortable with it. My work is very interesting, challenging, and has a lot to learn. Hmmm! Greatly looking forward to start off with some coding stuff as soon as possible~
