The day was approaching and was still apprehensive of what was in store. All the papers were ready.. but we were in confusion how the work will go on as we were pretty new to the work, and were still in the study phase. but preperations are going on and discussions are going on.

I dont know why i dont like my "God Father" very much, he doesnt appeal, when ever i try to see a leader in him i just get disappointed.. dont know how long i will have to bear him. in my view a leader should be inspiring, should be a constant motivator, appreciating the ideas, though not implementing all of them. but godfather sucks. First thing is that he doesnt understand most of the things. i dont expect him to know, but he should atlease try. just try.

well i just compromised on somethings so that things will go smooth and this will be bearable for me too. Didnt even get to visit any of the places nearby, visited Seoul Grand park. That too didnt see it completely, that park was so huge that we could only cover a minor part of it. One of the things of this trip that will stay on my mind for long is the korean junk food, any guesses .. its Octopus, they were selling them like mad, and even small kids were eating them as if they were choclates or lollipops. Remember one of those scenes from MIB, where the alean wearing human skin opens his mouth and tentacles coming out of his mouth.
Also the smell was really unbearable. This trip was there on my mind for a almost a week. Apart from this the rest of trip was good.

I have had some strong feeling that all the bad publicity, is all because of people in india not being good at work, they are not dedicated workers.. and just want to finish off the work. What i have seen from the motherland people is that they are concentrated on their product, their work... and since they are so tough on quality, people from india are not able to comprehend their enthu for the betterment of product and just think bad of them. If i were responsible for the work, i would have really appreciated and reacted positively instead of just finishing off and sending the work back. Also the number of reviews that are given for work done by indians is that the work is sent back substandard.

well these are all my views, and the result of my understanding of the scenario that i have observed. No one is responsible for whatiam writing otherthan me.

I liked the passion of motherland people, and that is the reason for their growth.

Coming to thepoint of hardwork, i recently came to know that children in korea study from morning 8 to 10 in the night. and that is not all, they further have study hours, and a typical student who wishes to go to any university can only get to sleep for 3 hrs a day.

Is that all required, if it is required, the educations sytem of india, is it enough. Or these people are over working..

welll i will leave that to them.

i will be returning back home in another week or so. Waiting for the day to leave. Its been enough staying heere.

Most of the times, Time is an interesting factor. Time heals wounds, time gives maturity, time does a lot of things. I wanted to post some serious issues in the past two days, but i deffered it and now i dont feel like posint them.

may be its for good, that in the due course of time, everything is settled. So let those posts be unknown, unwritten and forgotten.

Started practicing guitar, but need a teacher to learn from. Searching for one, all these years of bad habits in guitaring that i aquired, have to be taken care off...

Yesterday a friend of mine introduced me to his friend, that guy is a guitarist. Thought i can pick some things from him, so that i can improve my guitaring skills. Had a really great time yest. Hope i will learn alot from now on.

It was yesterday i played the electric guitar, I did hold it once at rickys place, but this was the first time that i actually played it. it was sounding so cool.

YACS 1.0 - Yet Another Cribb Story

Project is assigned, started reading the documents. Its good to start some work... once i start readng i will get in to work soon. The only thing that is worrying me is finding a house..

any one who knows abouta good 1bhk do let me know .. i want to shift my house as soon as possible.

first i was searchign for a 1bhk, the moment when i was about to change the house, with some turn of events, i again started searching for a 2bhk.. and that is still going on. We got a 3bhk yest but the price was way beyond our limits.. it was costing 14k .. but the house was worth it.. i will not blame the owner....

instead of paying 12k for small cubicle rooms, that house was what ever was extra.

well... the moral of the story is that iam still in search.. i just want to change the house and have some peace of mind.... well.. lets see how things are going to change.....

today will be the lst day for my search.. after this iam going to take a break.

lots and lots of cribbing... but this is the sad story of a poor gu :(

well... on to the postive note, the work that i have got is good and hope to pick it up fast.

I hope i will write somethign creative in the days to come, once the overheads on my head are done and i will get some spare time for my self.

Kahani GHAR GHAR ki

While i was a child, i was always told, that once i pass my board exams i can relax and enjoy. I used to be so happy about that, then came the 12th... i was told again taht once the exams are over, i will be free to enjoy.... then came the graduation... no one promissed this time.. but i felt that the tougher days are gone..... i entered job... instead of me being free.. the struggle converted its schedule to a daily basis.... i went for my higher education... this time i knew that its not going to be over... iam in.. i should be game...

now that i have accepted the harsh realities of life... iam a happy man... not waiting for some thign to come by where i can sit and enjoy... i know that i have to find happiness in everyday struggle, in the moments that are passing by. Realizations have to come from within.. no one can explain or induce realizations in to others...

how good it would have been if we can really understand the meaning and implications of what others are trying to tell us.

Google Code jam is starting today, but the timings are not so comfirtable. Have to see how it can be managed.

Search for the house is still going on... The brokers are irritating me to an extent, that i have also joined the lot who would like to search the house on their own. Extreme prices of rents in bangalore, as far as i feel are due to these brokers. And for bachelors to get a decent house in an affordable price is getting so hard. Yesterday i felt that its just the brokers who are making things worse... the reason, i will write tomorrow or the day after.

Coming to houses in bangalore, i dont know how they build their houses... just for the sake of rent, a spacious (adequately spacious) house, is split in to more rooms. Most of the houses that i have seen are like this

2B/R (read 1 BR house split to two)
with hall (most part of the hall being used in our B/R),
Kitchen (This is the worst part, kitchen in front of bathroom/toilet, or Toilet ventilator opening in to the kitchen). god, what kind of a house is that... when i asked a house owner of the same, he tells me.. that the ventilator is optional if you want i will close it..

All this for just 10,000. For me 5000 was the maximun rent that my family has paid to a houe owner.. that too for a 1400 sft, 3BR, marble flooring, spacious, Prime locality Appartment.

When i compare this with the house i am staying in for double the amount.. i feel like i want to leave bangalore and go else where.. but ... i have to stay in bangalore... its the choice that i have made and i have to stand by it.

this seems to be a cribb, but its just the pain that is coming out of my heart, as i stay in the "rented house" (Stress on the quotes) day after day.

Its all about the Money....

Final day of the training. Such a relief, but there i am a lot tensed to find out which division has been alloted to me.

Sometimes, when in total confusion and doubt we enter a very unexpected behaviour where anything that comes your way is much better.

whether you are trying to make a career decission, choose a department, choose a technology that you want to work on.

coming on to technology, i really am a confused soul, iam good at ideas, i do get some good ideas, i do work on them hard, and most of the times i do realize... but one thing that always haunts me is that, am i just BOGUs!!! do i know anything.. can i do anything..

not to forget the things i have done... but past always gets out of the way and dissatisfaction takes the place of excitement.. am i good, how good iam.

I have been really trying to find out whether iam focussed on my carrer path. Do we need to follow a strict path to be a good wrker...
I have always believed in taking the path less walked.. I always took the extra efforts to learn new things... and after so many years, what i see when i turn back is a very adhoc jumping of technologies as quoted by one of my frnds... but really is that so???

I know that given a technologt, i can pick it up and work on anything. i can give better results than an average person. But, this is my strength that makes me unique, lets me to thik beyond the technology... but no one needs that. no one really cares... what every oe cares really is money.

MONEY.. MONEY... today P told me that iam jealous of the salary P is getting... good. good going... why is that people just have to look at money... i want peace i want to do some thing for people, i want to do somethign that will be useful for the mankind... while iam focussed on what i want... i dont really care for what others want or think... STILL i get effected by the MONEY MINDEDNESS of others...

god help me, support me... make me strong enough to fight with this world which is more inclined towards money than on to anything else.

Just a Thought

I have joined a new company.. Traingin is under progress.. work is going on good. Iam actually enjoying the work for the moment unlike my previous one.

Training will be officially over tomorrow, there is a party at Taj ;o)

I have received a Portable hard Disk Drive as a gift from MicroSoft. I was very happy that i won the prize. Sounds good. I was very happy, that i have 80 gigs which i can use to transfer data from place to place, this too is good.... but. the sadest part is that iam not able to configure that hard disk with any of the XPsp2 Systems...

Gift by Microsoft not working on Microsoft OS ;o)

actually the disk is supposed to work out of the box.. but... lets see how long will it take to get it working.

Has seen KANK yesterday.. it was a mixed feeling watching that movie, sad, happy, confused.

rather iwas confused why rani was not happy with her marriage. have to confirm with some one. In the first place, when she has the choice to accept or reject the marriage she should have rejected it if she was not willing... any wayz.. its her life ;o)

I want to start practicing guitar again.. it has been really long that i seriously practiced. This time i need to concentrate on my vocals also.

Today iam going to make an agreement for a new house, will change to taht house this weekend.

will stop for now...
