This Week …


… So far has been a forgettable one .

 

I was in office for almost 65 hours this week including  Saturday.

I am suffering from Severe cold since Tuesday and the virus isn’t even close to leaving my body.  😥

If that was not enough , my computer has been infected from a virus called Rahul’s Virus 🙂 . Cant use my Pen Drive , it shows some stupid error message  having Rahul’s name .  Luckily , I dont see anything else affected by it . Need to get Rid of that anyway. Btw Who is this crackpot – Rahul ? 😡

Morning went to the showroom where i usually buy Clothes , only to find that the guy had chosen the best possible time for the showroom’s  renovation work. Hmph !!

Today’s Match with Australia was called off  too , I wonder why dont we keep buffer days in a tour for matches like these.

My Manni (bhabhi) took my book Malgudy Days . She didn’t know that i was  already half way through that one 😦 . So off  to a fresh Start with The hound of Baskervilles .

Ever since i changed this theme i have been eying to update my sidebar and my header image. I have photoshop in  my pen drive but cant use it .  Would someone tell me that dickhead Rahul’s addres 👿
I just realized that tomorrow is Monday and that makes this week even more awful .

Hope atleast you had a great week  🙂 .  .  Wish me a better Week ahead .  Thanks in advance . Cyaa

Look who’s back !!!


Ladies and Gentelmen !!

WE are proud to Have with us  the Guy  who Probably was missed by millions and millions of bloggers across the world galaxy Universe  .The guy who created ripples in the blogoshpere by his ever entertaining posts . Whose blog became the only source of entertainment for all the people in the times when the parasite boredom creeped in .

Let us Welcome the amazing ,ever stunning

**Drums Rolling **

**Drum Rolling**

…..

Phew !! Its really strange that  it  takes  a build up as lame as the one above to take a blogger like me out from hibernation . Self-Motivation , u see 😀 . Every one Needs motivation . And when there is no one to motivate u . You have do all on your own :mrgreen:  . Now that cheer girls have stopped Chanting my name let me come to the main idea of the post.

This has been my longest absence from the blogosphere 😦 . I really missed all Your blogs and i guess u must have missed my valuable ,enlightning and entertaining posts too 😀 . Never mind ! Now that i am back , your Ultimate source of Entertainment is back Online :P.

A Lot has happened in a span of month . Yet it seems  so vague that i will have to search for words to fill it up here . Sometimes i feel that the world has narrowed down  much within a time of 2 months .Home to office , Office to home . Ofcourse they pay me but it still seems so odd . Huh !! May be i need more time to adjust with my Korporate Konnection 😛 . Anyways  i dont intend to write my tantrums out here 😛 . So lets talk something interesting . Cricket ???  . WHy not  !! . Well,  India creating history in NewZeland by winning a series after 41 years is not what i am going to talk about .:P They are creating “history” far too often now that it has started to become little monotonous now 😉 . The interesting thing is that HIPL (Hewitt internal peremiar league) is going on at my office 😛 . The good news is that my team (vennila cricket kuzhu ) is through to super six . Now how good would it feel to hit  a six as the winning shot 😛 . Thats what i did and my team members have found their new hero 😀 . Well , you see i have a natural flair for the game . Lucky that i have a blog where i can blow my own trumpet 😛 . And we have formed Vennila kabbadi kuzhu also  😛 . I am sure we would be atleast runner up in that . It seems there are only 2 teams that have registered inluding my team 😛 .

I have regained my old love and passion for books  😛  .  Although i dont get much time but still i have been making it a point to read atleast 30-40 pages  daily .Currently reading The White Tiger and now i am able to realize why people were going ga-ga over this book . Bought Robin cook’s  Invasion . Anyone here who has read that book ?? A short review would be  fine in the comment section 😛 . Talking about books , Yesterday one of my collegues came  across my blog .She was hell-bent on insisting me that IT field is not my cup of tea. .According to her I should ,perhaps , write a book . Now How crazy is that ? :mrgreen:

Rakhi SAwant Ka swayamwar

And Whats all this about Rakhi sawant Getting married On NDTV IMAGINE . I mean Is she  On her minds or what . I knew she was crazy but this is too much .I  need to figure out  a theory which proves  that  Length of dress u wear is  directly proportional to the size of brain 😛 .  And May be  now NDTV IMAGINE can flaunt with a big advertizement Rakhi ka SWAYAMWAR – Reality show ka Baap :D. The show would be the height of crazyness 😛 .

Other day i got this pic through a mail –

Crazy cat

ROFLMAO !!  Whats wrong with the cat ?? may be u can write  a one liner 😉

Well , Thats all i have to bore Entertain u today :mrgreen: ..

see u soon again .

Adios Amigos !!!

ONE DAY AT THE CALL CENTER


Ladies and gentlemen  , i hereby announce that this is very much the real me and not my ghost . Yes , i am alive . I have been doing the disappearing act for the last 2 weeks .Well,had been a little busy so couldn’t read ur blogs and couldn’t even reply to ur comments for my last post  😦 . Anyway it took my last 2 hours to read all the unread posts in my reader . PHEW !!!!  Having so many good blogs that u cant stop reading isn’t easy !!!  🙂

Now , coming back to the post , before u make any conclusions let me tell u this post has nothing to do with the novel One night at the call center or with its author Chetan bhagat 😛 .The only reason that made to keep this title was to make u guys a little  curious 😛 .

Well ,most of u know that i have been ranting here in my blog about not getting my joining date 😦  .  I have been trying to find some alternatives but considering that  IT industry  is in deep shit ,its very unlikely that i would be able to find a new job . So for the mean time me and my friends thought of  geting into some BPO/callcenter till our respective recruiters gives us joining date  .

Yesterday as planned we( 5 of us) decided to go to a reputed BPO here in chennai where they have walk in’s daily .Along with another guy, i  reached the place at about 11 and were surprised to see more than 100 students already there waiting ,apparently many for them were like us , fresh ,bright and useless engineers 😛 .

Almost all of them were carrying big files which were supposedly containing their certificates .WE had none .We were just carrying our resumes in hand. Once my other friends came we decided to give our resume in the reception .AFter an hour or so we were called and had some kind of registration . Then we were asked to wait again. We were happy to get some unoccupied seats 🙂 .  30 minutes later we had initial screening . WE were asked to sit in a group of  about 10 ppl  .The HR gave a brief overview about the company and after which she asked each one of us to  tell us about our favorite fruit . Funny eh ?? they supposedly wanted to know how good we speak  .After last guy spoke she wrote something in each one of our resumes and gave to us.  Then their was a panel round where we were bombarded with questions by 2 HR’s .  We were then separated in voice and non voice groups .Apparently those who spoke well were allotted  voice and others non voice .

ME and one of my friend were got voice and other 3 got  non voice . One guy left without completing the interview further because he dint want non voice .OTher two guys were about to leave too but we convinced them to stay . Me and the guy who was selected for voice were asked to go to another center 20 km away for having an interview with some manager .Meanwhile the nonvoice candidates were given a peice of paper and asked to write about some topic 😛

WE started at about 530 and reached the main office at 7 . We waited there till 9 30  and observed how ppl were working there . It was kinda boring and we were becoming restless .IT was quite an odd time to have an interview isn’t it .When i couldn’t stand more  i went and said that i am not interested anymore , I will leave ..But the guy insisted that within 10 minutes u will have ur interview .. after 10 minutes the guy came and started the interview and guess what the same old questions ..Tell me abt urslelf  blah blah.  We finished it off and started to move out .The HR asked us to come for an apti round tomorrow  ( i.e. today ) which was supposed to be just an eyewash .

Other 2 friends who were giving their last round got rejected  cuz one of them got so pissed off that he spoke arrogantly to the HRs  😛 . SO me and other guy too dropped the idea of joining as we had lost the interest. After reaching home we had a group chat and we decided to go to some other BPO to try our luck   😛 .

Its almost 1:30 and my eyes are burning ..sorry if the post has some errors not rechecking it now…. gonna hit the bed  .

CHAO !!!

Special credits to google and to other numerous search engines for showing the way to numerous information hungry souls .I am sure that most of them would have been disappointed after landing here lol . 😛 .

Cant get a better chance to show off my blog stats  !!!! 😛 

Following the stats has its own share of enjoyment .There have been a no of instances when i had got visitors through hilarious searches like – no 2 , what ur name is , sexy hacker 😛  , funny trauma …CAN you believe it ???  ROFL… Have u ever checked ur spam section . Those are just impossible :d Some  are like

I can find the prayer I want. I thank God for this website  .

Divers thanks for the advice specified on a locality. With questions I shall oration to the administrator on a soap. (now what does the commenter wants??? :O

ORKUT,hacking ,Funny pictures ,Age of empires , harry potter  has brought me most of the hits 🙂 . And yeah CRICKET too which once upon a time used to be my favourite thing to post.now I am refraining myself till india does something great in srilanka ,chances of which are pretty thin 😦 .

i had started blogging last year mid june. Memories are still fresh like it happened just yesterday . I saw a link on my seniors orkut profile and something told me that i should click it ..I opened it and found an interesting piece of write up , creative and engrossing  . I wanted to try my hand on it the very next minute. I had no idea what was blogging .Infact his blog was  the first one i ever read. I knew i suck at writing . MY school English marks were proof  of that so  I doubted if anyone would ever read the gibberish posts i might end up posting.Not influenced by my apprehensions i got a free blog for myself . All i needed that was to kill time. 😉 during those days .

One year later now i realise that this has been one of the best decisions i have made in my life  and quickest one too 😛 . I have really enjoyed this one year in wordpress.(Only thing i hate about wordpress is that the themes are not that great  and are very few 😦 ) . Blogging has become a part of my life now and i am glad to say that it has much more importance than what i gave once to orkut 😛 . The meaning of the term blogging has changed for me with time after seeing many bloggers . I am glad that i am getting some regular readers nowadyas which is best part of this .A big thanks to all my regular readers and to all the unknown readers too… ;P . There’s no way i can express my gratitude here . Perhaps u can tell me if i can !! 😛

umm…by the way any suggestions for improving my blog are heartly welcome …any changes u would like ….anything from header image to content .Anything that can be better for this blog would be appreciated .

 

 

makes any sense !!! ;P
makes any sense ?? ;P

Finally ……….


Finally yes finally i got to see Jaane tu ya jaane na . Well , someone said me i should shoot myself for not watching the movie til now.. now i understood why he meant that. Such a beautiful and  romantic movie. I guess i am relieved that bollywood  can still make such movies. 😛 and what to say about the songs everybody would agree that Ar rahman has done a terrific job. Wonder how he creates magic everytime  :O  . I listen to Kabhi kabhi aditi song atleast yes atleast 30 times a day. 😀 . I loved all the characters and megha was gorgeous .

Kabhi kabhi Aditi zindagi mein yuhi koi apna lagta hai.
Kabhi kabhi Aditi wo bichhar jaaye to ek sapna lagta hai.
Aise mei koi kaise apne aansu o ko behne se roke?
Aur kaise koi sochle everything’s gonna be ok?

Kabhi kabhi to lage zindagi mein rahi naa khushi aur naa mazaa.
Kabhi kabhi to lage har din mushkil aur har pal ek sazaa.
Aise mein koi kaise mushkuraye, kaise hasde khush hoke?
Aur kaise koi soch de everything gonna be ok?

Soch jara jaaneja tujhko hum kitna chahte hai.
Rotein hai hum bhi aggar teri ankhon mein aansu aate hai.
Gaane to aata nahi hai magar phir bhi hum gaate hai.
Ke Aditi maana kabhi-kabhi saare jahan mein andhera hota hai;
Lekin raat ke baad hi to sabera hota hai.

Kabhi kabhi Aditi zindagi mei yuhi koi apna lagta hai.
Kabhi kabhi Aditi wo bichhar jaaye to ek sapna lagta hai.
Hey Aditi Hasde hasde hasde hasde hasde, hasde tu zara.
Nahi to bus thora thora thora thora thora, thora mushkura.

Tu khush hai to lage ke jahan mein chhaayi hai khushi.
Suraj nikle baadlon se aur baatein zindagi.
Suun to jara madhosh hawa tujhse kehne lagi.
Ke Aditi wo jo bichhad-te hai ek na ek din phir mil jaate hai;
Aditi jaane tu ya jaane na phool phir khil jaate hai.

Kabhi kabhi Aditi zindagi mei yuhi koi apna lagta hai.
Kabhi kabhi Aditi wo bichhar jaaye to ek sapna lagta hai.
( Hey Aditi Hasde hasde hasde hasde hasde, hasde tu zara.
Nahi to bus thora thora thora thora thora, thora mushkura.

OUT of hibernation …. :)


Well, My blog had been in hibernation mode for some days. thanks to my project guide and my future employers for keeping me busy 🙂 . So here i am posting this just for the heck of it 😛 and it will also ensure all my regular readers ( a very few of them) that i am very much alive 😀 ,infact fit and fine .

Today , i visited my college after almost one and a half months, not that i was feeling nostalgic but because due date to pay examination fees was almost near .In fact today was my last chance otherwise i would have had to pay it with fine 🙂 . It was not an easy decision for me to go to college .I tried all kinds of gimmicks to convince my parents that i would pay it later but all went in vain.

Traveling all the way to the college was quite an arduous job for me .Got up by 7 which is too early considering my strict standards of 10-11 🙂 . It took almost 10 minutes for me to come out of the sleepy state .I was still dreaming with my eyes open 🙂 .Went to tambaram by 8:15 , thanks to my lucky starts , got a bus which seemed to be waiting for me 😛 Only reason of repentance later was that the bus was full but i have become accustomed to standing these god damned govt buses . I was literally standing in a single leg and adding insult to the injury the driver dint even know where the accelerator was , our bus seemed to crawl on road 😀 And standing for 2hours in a condition where u cant even breathe properly was nothing less than a punishment .All this just for paying my examination fees.

While in the bus i had called my friend to get ready so that we could go together to college but as i should have expected, it went the other way around , he had not even started from his room 😡 .Waited waited and kept on waiting it was only after 40 minutes that he showed up his face from far , smirking in his usual way .Got an auto and reached college.It was the only thing from morning that occurred without any hurdle 😆 .Took a chalan and headed for indian bank . There were already 50 students waiting to pay the fees . My eyes were just moving thorough the big queue when a face got my attention . It was one of my friend from other department and was standing next to the counter . so started filling the chalaan with a sense of urgecy but alas i dint know how much i had to pay ,because i am in final sem there are lots of extra charges .It may seem seem absurd but my friend who payed already doesn’t know whether its the correct amount or not 😆 . I nearly wasted 30 minutes trying to confirm the amount and by that time the guy who was near the counter already came out . I had to give my chalaan to a junior whom i had seen first time 😛 . Somehow i got my fees paid 🙂 amidst all the difficulties 😀 .

thats it for now.. i need to hit my bed now …cyaa in next post soon 🙂
