Last Day @ Aricent

13 June 2005, i was right there in front of plot 31 gate, waiting for my turn to get my employee batch."your employee ID is 5132,please collect your bag and get into your bus", He said.He was one of the HR guys, distributing employee IDs and bags to the new employees.Bus was almost full,but somehow i managed to get a seat, and we all started our journey with a roaring engine.
"What's up Amit, sleeping all day", Ramya almost woke me up. "What happen to your Pronto 324567".She asked."O god !!!, that pronto has been marked CNN, and please today is my last day, i am going to write my last day @aricent mail, will you please",i said.
"Ya but my treat", she demanded."at 5.00PM in plot 31, now please", i pleaded."Ok baba, i am leaving", She said and moved to meenakshi's desk, probably to discuss PR324567.and i saw around, people moving from one desk to other, discussing TBF make break, BSCPET issues, and
"That journey ends here, Today is my last day in Aricent.It has been around 2 months since i have resigned.Everyone has reacted differently to me leaving The Company. Some are genuinely sad. Some are not sad at all, and are very excited for me.Others are curious and a bit envious. Some couldn’t care less. And I imagine some feel left behind.The lesson here is that everyone reacts differently to change, and you have to be prepared for all reactions.whatever these 2 years have been really wonderful,and when i see myself today I am a much more confident person than I was two years back and all credit goes to this company and my friends here.I am carrying with myself an immense wealth of knowledge and a great attitude." i said to myself.
I cleared my inbox, deleted all of my files from my computer, and packed up my desk. My Manager scheduled my exit discussion for 4:00pm, so I got a full day to browse the internet and tie up any loose ends.it was almost 4 so i started moving towards Vaishali, probably for the last time.It was going to be my job for life! But !!!

I came I saw I won I left !!!

Life After Marriage !!!!

Ok, i am sorry for being so late , i have been trying so hard to write something but you know, how is life after marriage...no you don't, Ok i tell you...
Before anything i tell you an incident...it was my first lie, and probably the best i could ever say with so much ease..

we went to some temple at my home place, and as soon as we came out of it, Neha asked me ,"What did you pray for", i said promptly,"Nothing" ,and I don’t know what was wrong with my answer for Neha immediately got upset. She said, like a true life-partner , I should have prayed for our family and kids and in-laws etc. When her lecture went on and on for what seemed like eternity, I delivered my lie, "Neha, you know what…I did pray for all that. Elders say that telling our prayers to others renders it ineffective,now if anything goes wrong with us,it is your fault, not mine.”. hehehehe :)..i am kidding...
Anyway the moral of the story is, you have to understand the emotions of your partner if not everytime then atleast at the right time, as in temples and parks...:)
As i haven't shifted into my own BHK(1,2,3 depends upon the availability and my ability) and i am still sharing my room with my room mates, so my life has not been changed much but i know "form is temporary , class is permanent"...so one day i will have to mend my ways ...
oho, i was about to answer your question, "hoz life after marriage"...I would really love to hear what other married prople would answer when thrown this question at them. In the initial days, it used to be fun to answer this question and I tried to give different answers(sometimes funny ones) but after a while, I really ran out of options and just started saying "Itz fine!".But now i think my answer shd be different.So probably i would say, you can do every damn "good" thing that you have been doing so far, marriage has its one fringe benefits but does not take away your existing ones at all.My answer to the question will henceforth be "Life after marriage is as "good" as it had always been" and I am sure all married folks will concur...

Now some tips for a better married life...

Respect her....infact you can generalize this rule, respect girls, and you don't have to show it, girls usually know it well...

Love your partner...nd show it to her..magic line "I love you", say it twice loudly, twice slowly and twice by heart(you can skip this part btw)and never generalize this, if you do ,there are least chances that you will do any good

Trust...Thats' the keyword, use it as much as you can...

Marriage - My Take !!!

I am getting married n that's official now :-)
So i decided to post something about my take on this special moment of my life.It's a relationship of commitment toward one another, seeking to serve the interests of one another. Actually it's a very difficult situation for many people, they see it as an added responsibility, but i believe there should be someone who can discipline me a bit,look you should always have an eye witness of your life and that's the way it is.

Now something for you "Neha", One day you asked me , if it would be the last time, Well !!!
If i know that it would be the last time that i see you walk out the door, i would give a hug n call you back for one more...if i know it would be the last time when i would be there to share your day, well,i won't let it slip away...but there will always be another day to say i love you,there will always be another chance to say "anything i can do", but just in case i might be worng. n today is all i get. i would
like to say how much i love you, how much i feel for you ...n i will keep saying untill tomorrow comes....!!!

Few Dreams !!!

Dreams, few funny , few scary...and that is the way i move from one night to other day..few dreams will probably remain unachieved thorughout, but i care no less for them.
How many times you have seen yourself falling from a 5 storey building but have your ever touched the ground? No, and that's the problem, i mean even in my dreams i can't catchup with my dreams...:)
One night i saw, one of my friend was murdered and my other friend got arrested for the case, and after investigation i found that the real culprit was dhaundy...hehehe sorry buddy but you should not have hid that knife in a programming book, but hell you didn't have anything else not even in dreams .Very recently i again saw one of my friend "chitvan",as a supari killer, he goes to some place in haridwar to kill a person, but he himself gets caught in the process by some gundas , who beat him almost to death and later we 4 (dubey, khemu, shukla and me)go for his rescue...hehehe....and we find him hung ulta on a tree, what a stupid scene that was...lol
I actually find most of my dreams make me chuckle at some point when I remember them. Guess a lot of it is context and having to be there, but sometimes things are just too ridiculous, hehehehe.
One of my more recent favorites still had to beat the 'Beverage Villain' as I eventually dubbed him... your classic villain from a black and white silent film, tall, thin with a long wiry mustache.He controlled the various elements like fire and wind and he used them to further his evil plot of flooding the soda pop market with his own brand of canned beverage.He went so far as to wire an entire building with explosives in order to ensure I did not try to meddle with his evil plan. Yeah, I meddled, the building blew up with me in it, hah.
I am quite sure it is a lot funnier to me than anyone else simply because I was there, but I do still have a soft spot in my heart for that poor guy... certainly one of the less successful villains in my dreams, hehee
will add few more dreams...so keep visiting :)

Alone !!!

आप से गिला, आप की कसम, सोचते रहे कर सके ना हम...उसकी क्या खता ला-दवा हैं गम,क्या गिला करे चारागर(डॉक्टर) से हम...ये अगर नही यार की गली,चलते-2 क्यों रुक गये कदम..

कब की पत्थर हो चुकी थी मुन्तजिर आंखे मगर, छुके जब देखा तो मेरे हाथ गीले हो गये,अब कोई उम्मीद है शाहिद ना कोई आरजू,आसरे छुटे तो जीने के वसीले हो गये,...

सामने आये मेरे,देखा मुझे बात भी की,मुस्कुराये भी पुराने किसी रिश्ते के लिये,कल का अखबार था,बस देख लिया, रख भी दिया...

उनकी उल्फ़त का यकीन हो, उनके आने की उम्मीद, होंगी दोनो सूरते तब हैं, बहार-ए-इन्तजार...उनके खत की आरजू हैं,उनकी आमद का ख्याल,किस कदर फ़ैला हुआ हैं, कारोबार-ए-इन्तजार

जादू है या तिल्सिम तुम्हारी जुबान मे,तुम झुठ कह रहे थे, मुझे ऐतबार था...क्या क्या हमारी सजदे की रुसवाईयां हुई,नक्शे कदम किसी का सरे रहगुजार था...

Bob Woolmer - A Man of Steal

Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has died, per an announcement by NDTV just now, Poor man , from the very little i know of him, he was always sincere in his efforts, to make this pakistani team , the best team in the world and for this transition, he has been scolded, insulted, by various members of this team.
And this may seem unkind, but i hope, some pakistani team members, including a certain akhtar, afridi, will refrain from offering ritual condolences. Not after the way they treated a man who had their good at heart, a heart that, finally, appears to have burst from the load.
And if it sounds harsh i mean it to.
Now You presumably, rest in peace, Bob. you deserve to, after all that you have had to take, to swallow, over the past couple of years.
Bye Bye and ya, i still believe you were the best coach in this world, no matter what World cup 2007 result shows.
