The last weekend was a memorable one. because it started off on Friday afternoon. I bunked office. :). well not exactly bunked. here is what happened. we were asked to goto a different Business Unit (Some 15 KM away from my office) for a training. and after that we were asked to report back to our office. A daily travel of 25 Km to office already pain in my posterior this additional travel was too much. so i planned to skip the second half of the day.
The next day i went to meet one of my college seniors, whose father incidentally has business relation with my dad. He is married but living the life of bachelor. Bhabhi was sent off to her mayka. (was it because of me?)
The same day i went to Unmaad, the cultural fest of IIMB. to watch the String perform live in action. and met with one of the fellow blogger Vignesh.
So overall cool week end. Hope to go and meet one few more people this week end!!
You all must be thinking how am I doing? Where the Fcuk I have been? What about my job? Well here are the things I have done and my present status.
I have been traveling a lot after I was chucked off from my last working place. From my last post you all must have deduces that I was in native. From my native I moved on to Bombay to meet my sister and jiju (Brother in Law). I had a train to catch from mumbai to reach my back to Udupi. But I had to settle for a bus travel (because of a wait list ticket) that was to drop me off to Goa. Yes I was in Goa. Even though it was for one hour but I was there. From there a local train ride of 6 hours lands me back to udupi. Just to find me on bed with a very bad throat.
I planned to move to Bangalore in pursuit of a new job. I got a job call from a company, which has kept me on hooks for 2 weeks now. So if your company needs a lousy Mac Developer do let me know. BTW I must thank Shivkumar of U2B.in fame to come to me as my guarding angel. Thanks Shiv you encouraged and supported me at a time when I was down.
I also saw the India a little more than those previous adventures. I was in Jaipur and Delhi strictly on a pleasure trip. I have been to Khatu (my family deity’s temple), Salasar (known for Lord Hanumans) and Jhunjhunu (Known for temples Dedicated to Sati). It was a unique trip in its own. As this was the first my whole family went to our family deity’s temple and knew where we are. The last time we were there together was for my hair donating ceremony. When I was just 2 years old :D.
Jaipur was the place where we all met. Meaning my mom, dad and bro arrived via Delhi, di and jiju from mumbai and myself from b’lore. We were in Hotel Ashok Jaipur and my first impression of the hotel was it looks grand from outside but the rooms are no better than a medium hotel. The reasons can be many including understaffed and lack of renovation after it was built long ago!!
Most of you must be thinking why the post was named when there is nothing bout the kings and fishes. Delhi was the point to disband. I was the first one to leave and take a flight back to Bangalore. It was known as IT207 direct flight from Delhi to Bangalore at 8.45 run by airlines owned by Mr. Vijay Mallaya. It was the first time I was on board of kingfisher airlines owned airplane. Though the airhostesses were the same way dressed as that of the Spice jet. What had me the most impressed the service provided the people. Kudos guys you actually knew how to treat your passengers. The food though a bit cold was better than the other. It had a bowl of salad (I even asked for and extra salad). They have got another customer guy who will fly with them if the fares are within the acceptable limits :).
This is post is being written on a P4 16Ghz, 128MB SDRAM system with a BSNl DialUp. the system is just 5+ years old and is still working like an old but reliable car.
First of all HAPPY DEEPAWALI to you ALL and you family. Hope you have a light and fun filled diwali.
“Bee! Honey Bee” your are right i was sad because cos anyone who has lost a job has got the right to remains sad. BTW this is the first diwali i am home in past 11 years. I am presently doing good.
Happy kitten. I am very much frustrated with my net connection and system so will get back to all the blogs after i return from my native. till than enjoy.
I have made some observations in the past few days. My mom and dad never said anything to me even though they knew i have lost my job. it was me who told gave them the news.
I dont drink tea (most of my people at my home think so) but as i work now so the assumption change to he can drink tea sometimes. 🙂
I dont know how many of ou have traveled by train in india. if you have than you all must have had a cup of hot tea from one of those stall or guys selling tea. But i dont know if you have ever seen a Lemon tea seller on plateform of the station. I have seen and it was the shock of my life as the station was not a metro but is a small district town of bhagalpur in bihar. (for the unknown i love lemon tea the most than comes leaf and than the regular milk sugar thing.) the look of lemon tea made me drink 2 cups of the tea at one go :).
Hey people its time to say good bye. Don’t worry its not forever! I am leaving for my native(which is a small village in bihar) to celebrate diwali. See you guys after that. Till than Miss me 🙂
BTW, I am searching for a new job. If your company is willing to adopt a Mac Developer working on Carbon Framework with 1 year work ex. Please download the resume from here
Yesterday I was crying. Out side it was rain and inside it was me. No its not because that I have a bad news to give or anything but. I had to see all those senti movies where the mother or father is dieing and the son is not there or where the hero and heroine meet after a Vanvas (Separation) of 22 years. Its all those heart touching movie that made me cry a lot. May be guys don’t cry in front of ladies but when it to filling up the buckets we are no less than the gals themselves. The other reason of my crying was that I have to leave the flat I am staying in and have to shift to a new location. Its not that I am in love with this place or the inmates of this but shifting to a new place is always a headache.
Crying reminds me of the last time I cried infront of loads of people was on 17th may 2006, my sister’s wedding. The very next day the sensex crashed more than 500 points. Ahem Ahem.
Wedding reminded me of the last post on wedding and how various people think about it!! Before I start let me wish luck to chriz for he is the next one trying to find the meaning of wife and marriage.. Best of Luck Buddy!!
For those who are thinking let him marry than we will write something silly, than wait on guys for my marriage is not in the books for a few years. My dear elder bro has joined a MBA college this year. That will take him 2 years to complete (being bit optimistic). After that it will be 2 more years before he gets married. Than comes my number. So its minimum 4-5 years before I will be married off. (Hoping that I don’t go to do MBA). So guys see ya after 5 years on my marriage. Its an open invitation.
