Going kookoo..

[Memoirs from the Past]

India is catching up in all the fields with other countries, be it technology infrastructure fashion or literature.. Everything here and there is getting inspired with some ‘foren’ element into it.

Only those already lying on their death beds would be unaware of the latest advancement that our country had. We have got the coveted distinction of catching "flu" – Avaian, as it is said has become the latest ‘Buzz-Word’ in the whole country.

Specially my mobile is singing this quite very often. Whenever i get a call from home, or i call, all what i hear now is "flu" this.. "flu" that.. and YOU ARE NOT EATING ANY CHICKEN …!!!
(untill further notice…)

Poor me like people.. 😦 What to do.. we cant eat chicken at any cost it seems. Despite the hoo halla that the Animal Husbandry ministers are doing (with their 30 minutes cooked chicken at 70 degrees) the people here at hyderabad and of course back at home, are not going to move. (We do have strong determination against things that are lethal to our national interests you see.. )

Poor birds too.. Heard over 3 lakhs were killed in just 2 days to prevent Avain terror….!!! Gosh.. what a big time waste.. 😐

Anyways.. I do pray to god that they refer to their ‘Chicken Generating Department’ and ask the fellows there to send pre vaccinated chickens to earth.. So that poor souls like me can feast and be merry.

Moreover "Whats the fun in being killed, without being ‘tandoorified’…!!"

The Silver Lining..

[Memoirs from the Past]

Top 5 reasons why we should remain an Intern in the Software Industry πŸ˜‰

* You don’t have to do much work and no tension of deadlines as such.

* You don’t have to worry too much about writing robust or error free code at all the times, since most of the stuff you write are to be re-written or trashed πŸ˜‰

* You get the full respect like a regular employee outside the campus.

* You get all the goodies (tees, parties, cakes, photoshoots) and something not even the employees enjoy.. (free food :D)

* You don’t have to pay taxes on the stipend you earn.
(when asked the HR coordinator pleaded to take the full amount and her inability to deduct taxes πŸ˜‰ )

Every dark cloud has a Silver Lining..

True to each letter.. he he.. πŸ™‚

[Memoirs from the Past]

Well, finally I celebrated my monthly anniversary two days back. Gosh its one month since I joined and it seems like yesterday only. When I used to wander around finding my ways through the seemingly never ending maze of cubes and finally would end up in Celina’s room to guide me through. πŸ˜€

It’s been great, the feeling. Being in the world’s biggest software giant does give you a kick of sort. So I remain drunk, all the time. πŸ˜‰

Life is finally settling down in Hyderabad. Have almost fixed a routine kind of stuff for the office. Arrive here by midday and leave by morning πŸ˜‰ its tough to spend time at home doing anything else besides sleeping you see.

Got my first pay check too, and got it cashed too in a new account πŸ˜€ It’s a great feeling you see. But then not much is to be saved from this I guess, and by the way who wants to πŸ˜‰ Will go for a major shopping in few days.

Rest rocking..
