Almost entire life in jus 4 1/2 months .....

yet another post after probably 2 months....actually there s nothin much u can do wen ur on bench and wen ur far away from ur home i thought i ll increase my posts...somethin to jus read and liven up a few minutes for here i go to describe the last 4 1/2 months of my life...well i write to jus make myself happy and so here i go jus to enjoy that nostalgic feeling...

i am talkin of the 4 1/2 months of training at infosys-mysore...hmmm wher do i start ...the day i got my call letter....i was extremely no i guess 'excited' is more appropriate ....we got the call letter exactly a month before the joining date so basically that month flew by jus tellin ppl that i ve got the joining date and visiting relatives place,finishin up some work and stuff as if we were gonna die for ever or somethin...seems funny wen i think of it now....then finally for the last one week used my dad s money to shop for clothes etc etc......not like i din have proper ones til then but i guess jus another excuse to get some new stuff and paritally a part of the general rules wen someone starts somethin obviously me too did the same....then it coninued with callin up all friends and tellin them i ll be leaving and meeting up with them ...finally the day comes wen i have to leave....getting all blessings from the elder ones at atmosphere worse than gettin married (:-p) as if ur entering some worst place on earth and really gotta be careful ..wat not...the typical parents advices which we barely follow but always have to listen.....

then finally landed at infosys mysore campus...i must tell u the first one week i was in complete awe,bliss,excitement ...dunno how else to describe that campus...mind blowing architecture, amazing hostel rooms, sexy multiplex, huge food courts minus the food ,green all around(green in every way..:-))), the crazily big umbrellas with infosys written on it...but for the size of the umbrella i would have flicked one for sure...hehe....then slowly settled down there after the borin induction program... then started the rigourous training....module after module... gettin to know abt the attendance criterion and stuff there at infosys and slowly finding it difficult to be physically present also for those innumerable lectures.... by the time we came to the last module and had our compre and stuff i was like dam i haven studied so much in my life types...!!!

besides the technical stuff which we learnt there we did learn much more...and trust me whether we use our technical skills gained there or not we have definitely grown as an individual.........firstly i ve learnt to come out of the comfort zone i was in with my friends and family.....of course i do have my times where i miss all of them and get irritated with life but that doesn last long coz we realise tat things can be the same always and if it is gonna be the same its gonna be quite borin......secondly i ve actually tried and made my ppl happy and proud by sending all these surprise gifts for birthdays...accordin to me there s no point in u earning if u cant spend it on ppl u love or help our family or friends in some small way...jus a token to say u love them and need them the sayin goes" if u love someone show them ,its better than telling it but ya if u hate someone then tell them ,its better than showin it...". so basically i realised the value of each and every individual who has been responsible for my success in some way or the other...

i must admit tat it has given me a sense of complete independence...wen i say independence i completely mean it...where else could i experience walking back from classes at wee hrs of the morning(if ur committed even more better..:-)))), having more number of tea breaks than actual sesions, the innumerable games that we used to play,the communicator chatting from one desk to other, fwding assignments done by one person to all and submitting it by jus editing the employee ids and jus because we get tea or coffee for 24 hrs we practically lived on it and made it one of our favourite bevarages.. ..hmph!!wat not??..wat is exciting is u get to do most of it without any hindrances as in no one s constantly ordering u or tellin u wat to do and wat not.... no one monitors u wat so basically i d say wat u were there completely determines wat life u would have or wat u was solely ur responsibility for everythin.....well its nice as long as u don mis use the freedom....

and lastly i completed my training successfully...whooooo!!!(yaya much more difficult than writing this post..:-D) and got posted to pune....well i was obviously feelin extremely sad abt gettin a location really far from my hometown....but now i am slowly gettin used to it... i ve actually started enjoyin it ...But for a few moments wen i miss my ppl or feel things would be better if someone was around i must say that this life does rock in more ways than one..... all gets back in a moment and i am back to experience somethin new and somethin exciting for the day....hopefully this excitement stays on for long which directly implies that the bench/table/chair period be reduced! and we are put into some actual work...

15 th november 1986

after almost 4 months i sit down to write this . now why i chose to write
this is simply because i want to go back to the happy days of my life...not like i am not happy now but those are the days which are never gonna come back....remembering these days give me few moments of complete bliss that cant be got by doin anythin else !! so here i go

she came into our lives on this date.from then on till last year this date called for a celebration.well it was jus another reason to party and celebrate.
15 th november 1986 ( approximately 3 months after my birthdate) was when she was born.all i knew then was that she was also part of my family and almost the same age as being the kids at home ;we were pampered all the time annoying the little bigger ones at home..

wen we were young we celebrated this day by jus having a pre defined b day party like how kids generally have-the traditional b day cake,the b day hats,the eagerness to receive presents,games etc etc..

as we grew older our definitions of celebration got refined or rather re defined..wishing at 12 am sharp ,the surprise party,treating friends for either movies or food.. etc etc started becoming more of the in thing though the the traditional cake remained in tact.the concept of hosting a b day party elsewher creeped in...and the best part was the older generation ppl in the house were not invited although we needed them monetarily (hehe!!)...the invitees stuck to jus the friends and siblings if they were of the same age...

thus we celebrated each one s b day with the same enthusiasm year after year.i remember how we used to
pick up the places we always wanted to go but couldn due to various reasons for celebrating the day
as we wouldn be denied anythin that day...

i still remember her b day wen we were in the first yr of coll was kinda customary i suppose(only she knows why) to treat ppl for ur b day ..the worst is wen u treat the wrong in ppl whom u jus knew for like 2 months but weren friends...but today wen i think of that day it sounds so funny...
second yr and third yr we got more mature or i should say sensible and invited the right crowd ...
least did i know i was celebrating her last b day wen i was in the final yr....!!

this yr on 15 th i didnt have anyone to call and wish nor did i have ppl call me up and yell for not wishing on time,,.,nor did i sit and plan wher to go out for the treat..all i managed to do is stare at my mob for a while until the truth sank in......

well enough of the she's ...i am jus describing my sister ramya...she s not with us today but her memories remain forever,..this is like a tribute to her on her 22 nd birth anniversary... reminds me of all the good times we ve had on this day keeping the b day as an excuse...thanks to
her for giving me memorable 15 th novembers ...15 th november will always remain in our hearts forever..
we missed you so much yesterday!!!(now at least will i get my treat??)

My unbonded relation!!

Hmmm…after a long time I sit down leisurely to write this post…finally with a lot of contemplation I decide to write on “my favourite person”… here it no way means any kind of a super hero or something like that …I am talking abt one of my best friends…today wen we r gonna part I feel like writing a gist of those special moments I ve shared with her so that wenever I miss her all I have to do is jus open up this page and immediately ;I ll have this glow comin into my face automatically which will make those moments come back to reality!!

So here I go beginning to write abt the first 20 yrs of my life…
Wher do I start…?? she came into my life wen I was 4…from then till this date its been a wonderful journey with her..we still remember those yrs as children…either of us being the class captain of our class and the other being the assistant captain , writing names of the other naughty ones on the black board ,marking social studies answers and dictating it to the whole class, organizing moral science plays, wearing those best behaviour and those rank holder badges with that innocent pride in our faces, laughing at each other s choir sessions, attending b day parties and getting two pencils and an eraser as return gifts and actually showin it off to others, opening up that big fat lunch box of ours and eating together,,(u can imagine the carrier type lunch cases used those days….god!! i still cant believe we actually used them once)!! we used to be our teachers pet students doin all their work and actually taking pride in it not realizing that they were actually dumping their work on ours!!pheww!!how dumb were we!!
whooooo…wat not….

Then slowly we grew older and our talks changed from those childlike ones to a bit of all those girly talks….she became more nicer, calm and composed and I was turning into a brat as I grew old…she never used to talk much but I seemed to be makin it up doubly for it…then we came to the higher secondary…and those two yrs jus flew leaving us barely any time to talk to each other…

Then the most important part of my life.. “college life”…this is the time wher our friendship bloomed and made us realize wat we meant to each other…every second of my college life I ve spent with her.. be it grumbling abt our never ending lab sessions and its record writing , or deciding on wen to bunk and stuff ..every small decision of mine revolved around her…we faced a lot of hardships during our college life…that s wen we realized and understood the importance of each other…today wen she s married and gone..i feel so happy that something nice is happening to her finally…but at the same time I feel sad and hard to accept the reality that she s no more gonna be the same friend I used to call up at any time of the day and actually talk for hours without any reason...i am no more gonna experience the pleasure of jus roaming around Chennai streets making fun and commenting on all the passers by as if we were perfect in everythin...god all those restaurant visits, walkin out ordering food and not being able to eat it, jus goin for a ride in the car ,and not to forget our daily course of temple visits…in fact ppl in places wher we hang out often today ask me how my friend is.. that s wen I realize that we both have done almost every small thing together…

Wat surprises me the most is the fact that we are kinda different in many things…right from the way of talking, to our ways of thinking …everything is quite different…but still I cant think of any other person in my life to whom I would actually dedicate a blog post!!
Now finally to her name…-“RANJINI”…god… the very name gives me a smile…
Here s a toast to my greatest friend !!if at all u find time to read this post sometime in ur life.. let me tell u that I ll truly miss all those times I ve spent with u…u ve been like a guardian angel to me…even now we both wil be makin new friends and enjoying life but hopefully the place we have for each other in our hearts never be replaced…hope distance doesn mater to us and we still keep in touch with each other if not like before atleast giving each the assurance that we r there for each other come wat may..and lastly to put all those myths to rest which says girls cant keep in touch with their friends after weddin…hell with those who say so... .by gods grace lets prove it wrong!!wat say??;-)

well Yet another testimony from me
u have laughed at me..laughed wid me..laughed for me..
u ve cried to me, cried wid me.. cried for me
u ve given me the solution wen i feel tat no one understands my problem
ur happy wen I am happy and sad wen i am down..
always cheering me
sharing my thoughts, dreams ,ur ups and downs
wonder wat i would hav been widout u!!

U undoubtedly MAKE me ME...
i kno this is a bit senti...
still I hav no words to express how i feel ..
these make us nostalgic wen we see them again..
hope this one makes u realise tat u ve completely influenced my life and moulded me in all the good ways…after all ur family to me in all means!!

So here s a toast to our friendship…cheers!!
Love you loads!!

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away they were meant to be serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but you lock eyes with them and you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair, but in reflection ;you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never would realize your potential, strength, will power, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, love, and lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all acure to test limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to know where safe and comfortable but dull and otterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and the downfalls that you experience can create whom you are and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make everything count. Appreciate everything you possibly can, for you may never experience it again.

Talk to people whom you have never talked to before and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you're a great individual and believe in yourself, ... Create your own life and then go out and live it.

well lastly if ur currenlty reading this post then it has a reason too!!cheers!!

a few practical quotes!!!

"the first step to getting the things u want out of life is this:decide wat u want."-ben stein

"a friend is one who knows us well,but loves us anyway."-jerome cummings

"your learning is useless to u,till u have lost ur textbooks,burnt ur lecture notes,and forgotten the minutiae which u learnt by heart for the examination."-alfred north whitehead

"the problem with political jokes is they get elected"-henry cate

"remember the two benefits of failure.first you learn wat doesn work and second it gives you the oppurtunity to try a new approach."-roger von oech

"whenever u are asked if u can do a job,tell them certainly i can!then get busy and find out how to do it."-theodre roosevelt

"to belive in urself and to follow ur dreams,to have goals in life and a drive to succeed and to surround urself with the things and the ppl that make u happy-this is success."-sasha azevedo

Change ur consiousness and change your world!!

long time back i read this article in a local magazine and found it really captivating so jus thought i ll put down a gist of wat i remember of it goes!!!
Well jus visualise this....see urself acting as if u had everythin u wanted ,capture the feeling of completeness and satisfaction u would have...ahhhh wat a wonderful feeling it is...and ya it is possible...
thougths are the things that create ur reality which means u can only have things that are in harmony with ur thoughts and beliefs..hmmm tat s universal law for u!!for example If u don get a job it was because there was something equal or better awaiting u out there..this wonderful knowing itself gives u a sense of freedom of calm and peace of mind...knowing that god is the source and substance of ur supply and that ppl are jus channels is absolutely key to ur happiness,success and prosperity...
the next important point to getting prosperous is to begin to affirming that ur over and over again say "i am prosperous " and say it with meaning!!
right now jus know that ur mind is one of your prized possesions...well then ask urself ..wat kind of a life are u building for urself?? a magnificient one or a limited one??everything that has been available to everyone is also available to u...start knowing the potentiality of one is the potentiality of all..never underestimate urself or others...if anyone has wealth u can have too,if anybody has a beautiful home u can have it too,if anyone has a beautiful partner u can too...for after all LIFE'S A STATE OF CONSIOUSNESS...and as the saying goes..."AS A MAN THINKETH IN HIS HEART,SO IS HE"....CHEERS!!


For a long time I have been wanting to put this down here…after a lot of information collected from doctors, the net and from magazines I am gonna put this down here…this is one post which I jus don want ppl to read but actually learn it and spread it to as many as possible…wat I am gonna talk abt here is how u could administer a CPR(cardio pulmonary resuscitation) to a person whose jus lost his heart beat!! So here I go to tell u wat u should do to become a life saver and ultimately “GOD “to that persons FAMILY AND FRIENDS…
Firstly be bold and act smartly rather than shyin away from the up the ambulance and rush to the victim. If the victim shows no signs of breathing,let the person lie down with chin facing up. Tilt the head back, pinch the nose and cover the victim s mouth with ur mouth and blow until u see the chest rise. Then put ur hands on the centre of the chest and press. Keep pumping the chest atleast 100 times until the person responds or until help arrives.

Well these are the things u could do which could probably save someone s me it doesn require a medical degree to do this..all it requires is a sensitive heart and a sound mind….try this out next time wen ur caught in an emergency and soon u ll know tat saving a life is not jus a doctors after reading this pls try to pass it on to one person atleast…it may sound silly for me to put it up on my blog and actually beg u to pass it on but I don mind doin it as long as it saves someone s life for after all; i know how it is to loose ur dear ones jus becoz of sheer indifference or ignorance…so I thought instead of brooding over how indifferent or insensitive ppl are I’d rather help in imparting that small knowledge which could drive off that bit of ignorance and indifference ….so be bold, and know that “YOU COULD GIVE A SECOND LIFE TO A PERSON”..

now here s the link wher u can see how to administer cpr to a person...
