I am IN ;)

Just came back, carrying a CAT form and IMS study package :) and thinking about the 'zero preparation test' which I gave after enrolling today in IMS (correspondence). Surprised ? So am I.

I am in (period), but I don't know when will I get the time to practice and study for CAT. The long office hours, and an hour long traveling, leaves me with no energy. Morning 8 to Night 8 ; I am booked. Now I am left only with weekends. But isn't it unfair to sit at home and study rather than going out, having fun, watching movies during weekends ? Moreover , don't forget that I am an intern, and so I have to study other things too.

Anyways , whatever ! I am in.

Lets open the package now !!! :D :D

Serial Blast Rock Bangalore

Bangalore was today hit by eight serial bomb blasts.

The blasts, which killed two, took place at Adugodi, Madivala, Nayandahalli, Pantharapalya and Vittal Mallya Road within a span of 12 minute.. Read More

I was working on something when my friend pinged me about this news ! At first I thought he is just trying to fool me, but when I checked the NDTV Site, Oh God ! he was right. Few days back the hindu muslim riot and now this serial bomb blast.

But there was also a smile on my face. Being in these kind of situations you get all the attension from your friends, families and well wishers. The area where the blasts took place was very near to my office area, and this further broadened my smile :)

Anyways the smile didn't last long. I got very few calls -- > 1. Mintoo Chacha, 2. Chachi (I am staying with them) 3. and a concerned friend Abhinav (Bhopal). Thats it. No one else :(

Thank God there was no traffic problem in my route (office to home).

PS: I got several online msgs..but that doesn't count :|

Running Running

Life is not a bed of roses. Things are running pretty fast. And when you are new to the environment, you really have to get yourself running with the same pace.

I am running, running briskly, falling every now and then, yet getting up and running again. And while running I am picking up things, concepts, knowledge and gaining experience which will help me run with the same pace. I won't stop, though falling at every corner, I will keep running, running till I win the race.

And its just the beginning, the main track is still a mile away !

(Those who didn't get this post, read it after newly joining a firm. )

Missing Something

I am comfortable here. The room is big enough for a single person, and it has everything a bedroom and study room should have. Moreover there is a huge window, providing a nice view of the city and also letting the fresh air and sun come directly in.

Sometimes I use the study table, and sometimes I study on bed. Sometimes I look out through the window and sometimes I just stand in front of the mirror. Something is missing, I know something is definitely missing.....

I am missing my friend's room
I am missing the rooms where I can just walk in
and sit or lie down, as if it is mine!

I am missing the room no 261,
where I can knock and shout 'flying robot, flying robot'.

I am missing the room no 257,
where I can bang open the door, utter few slangs, and ask for a fag,
only to hear an immediate refusal.

I am missing the room no 248 and 239,
which is always locked, either from inside or outside.

I am missing the room no 222,
where I can hear the sound of FRIENDS soap everytime I pass by.

I am missing the room no 223,
where I can go, tease, and then ask doubts.

I am missing the room no 224,225,228 ,
where I can go and plan a 'daru party'.

I am missing room no 229,
on whose door I can kick as hard as I could,
only to hear the angry shout of the friend inside,
or to see his angry face turning into a smiling one.

I am missing room no 339,
where I get new things to eat,
where I can knock before going to any class,
where I can complete all my reports,
and where I can gossip even during exams.

I am missing the room no 342,
where I can peek in , to see what's he doing.

And what I am missing most is the room no 205,
where I can talk hours on phone,
where I can lie down and listen to a song,
where I can fag watching a movie,
where I can connect to myself,
and where I have spent the last 3 years of my life !

Having Fun

Its almost 11 pm and I am feeling so sleepy (:| I-) For the last few days, I haven't slept properly - workload ;) !! Anyways I am writing this post just to test whether the emoticons are working properly. So I hope you won't mind so many smileys /:)

Oh #-o I forgot to write about a strange thing I saw few days back. I was there, waiting :-w at my bus stop. I was distracted by a noise. It was a cow attending the call of the nature at the middle of the road ;)) . And within a flash came an auto-rickshaw driver, stopped next to the cow, and inserted his hand breaking the flow of the liquid ! I didn't want to see that!. He then poured some of the uric acid over his head =)), and scattered few drops in his auto. I was surprised :-O . I don't know :-?? why he did that. I couldn't think :-? of any reason other than some religious belief. (Sorry God [-O< , it wasn't me who :)) at him)
Doing intern in Yahoo is fun. I am not a nerd :-B and I enjoy the working environment <:-P .Only thing which is a pain in the ass is the traveling part #:-S I hope I will get adjusted to this soon.

(:| I should probably sleep now, the clock is ticking .

Oh I got a call :-c .... :)]

Who else it could be :) :D ;;) >:D< :x :-* :)) \:D/ :) @};- love you too (did I say it loud ? ;) )

Really tired now, good night Bbye :-h

Friends Speak : Abhinav Pophali

(These are the posts where friends speak about me)

Related Posts:
1. Govil Speaks 2. Ashok Speaks 3. Soumya Speaks 4. Bhamri Speaks 5. Dhruv Speaks

"ANKIT VATSA"...what to say and what not to say about this guy!! When I first met him he seemed like a "lafanga" to me
(thats what normally his first impression is). And then I came to know that along with his good looks the guy has got brain too, and he is a genius in physics. But as they say great minds keep on doing something or the other, so was his case.

There was nothing to do in the first sem and his great mind started working in a mischievous way. That's what earned him a bad reputation in the college.., but mind you half of those who couldn't stand him were jealous of him. After the first sem "VATSA" became a brand name in itself in our campus.

He is very straight forward guy....doesn't give a damn about others and does what he wants and that's what I like about him. I always found this guy good at heart (although many people will disagree with that). The guy's skills have no bounds ( be it painting, photoshop or anything)

Our first meeting was when Adi introduced me to him. I am sure he along with Dhruv and Shomu got an impression of me being a geek. Fir dheere dheere bahut se kaarname kiye janaab ne ( the lipton thing, love letter kaand...saala ek din mein hi itna paagal ho gaya tha ki letter likh diya..voh bhi khoon se..) and he instantly shot to fame.

I don't know how I gelled with this guy....but we soon became good friends...then going to beaches..., playing basketball..., all was fun !!

3rd sem mein me Bhamri and Vatsa and me used to be together a lot. Saath mein mere room pe FRIENDS dekhte the ( that was hell lot of fun and you got me addicted to it)...exams ke samay padhte bhi the. Sometimes we used to sleep off at the same place( three people on the same bed :).). That sem was a lot of fun and gpa's....well 7(vatsa),8(bhamri) and 9(me)....we all were happy with what we got. I really miss that time when we three used to hang out in my room. That was one of the best part of the hostel life.

In the 4th sem, initially we used to play basketball everynight...but then something happened ( you know what :) )....thats the time I think when everything changed ....from my part I wasn't there with them for as long as I used to be earlier...then slowly he also got busy with other things and he also found someone :)...That was the time I think we actually drifted a bit from each other...

Uske baad he got into his smoking and drinking and was completely within himself....he was busy or rather was trying to keep himself occupied and I was also busy...kitne dino tak nahi dikhta tha yeh....

I really feel sad that that time of 3rd sem didn't come back again....I know I am to be blamed...but whatever it was really fun wid this guy all the time....and he certainly will be a friend for lifetime....Dude don't forget me and be in touch....last sem without you in college. will be very boring....

I wish you all the best in life....I sincerely hope you get a bit more serious now in life. I think only she can change you...hope you have a great future with 'her'...


I Speak : First of all don't say I wrote the letter with blood, I just signed it with blood ;)

And ofcourse Bhamri and me hanging out in your room was so much fun, and one of the best part of college life. But obviously nothing goes on an on, every good thing has to end, so that another good thing comes :) So nobody is to be blamed.

And I have given up smoking and drinking.
Love You Too :D

The First Week @ Yahoo

It's a Friday night, and I am just back from my office (sounds so!). Anyways, I am feeling relieved today, I won't have to get up early for next two days :) Oh, I am not sure but I heard that some communal riots took place or going on in some areas in Bangalore, and so the company bus left 10 minutes prior, as a precautionary measure ;)


I have already written about the fun part in Yahoo. Now lets turn towards some serious stuffs. The team under which I am doing my internship works on web platforms which supports services like blog, mail, videos, maps, etc. I myself don't know much about these things, as I am from EEE background :(

So before I begin to do any actual work or undertake any project, I need to go through the basics. Thats what I have been doing, sitting in my cube. The book which I am currently following is Internetworking with TCP-IP Vol1- Principles Protocols and Architecture by Douglas E. Comer. Most of the CSE guys must have read this book as their CDC.

And when I finish this book, I will be reading the volume III, which deals with stock programming. So still, there is some time when I actually start working.


There was a surprise for me in store today! I was informed that my Manager Mr. Hemang had requested the department to give me a laptop instead of the PC. And currently I am using that laptop :) Its a HP laptop, 2.4GHz dual core processor, 2GB ram and 80 GB HDD.

I feel pity for my Dell Laptop which is lying in a corner ! :D

Horrible Horoscope

This morning - I woke up, did sleep walk and reached downstairs, grabbed the Bangalore times, turned to page 2 and here it was --

" PISCES February 19- March 19 Its likely that you are still riding high on the waves of enjoyment, yet reality pushes its way back into your consciousness today. You are resistant to change. Avoid the temptation to walk away from your responsibilities to just do something enjoyable. This is an action- packed phase for you."

I read it twice (period). It was not that I didn't get it the first time; it was just too much to absorb at one go ! It was like someone fired at me with a machine gun, while I am still half asleep!

Though reluctantly, but I agreed to this Finolex FORTUNE. The 'waves of enjoyment' is still inside me (as I got Yahoo and a good stipend). And though aware, but still not accepting the reality that I have to work now! For the last three years, it was just little work (study/exams) and all fun and laziness. And who won't resist if there is a change, where you have to get up early, walk for 15 minutes and board your bus at 8:00 AM. Do your work in company and take your bus back at 6:00 PM and reach home at 7:45 ! What a contrast : Almost no work for three years and working five days a week !

I felt a cold shudder, the reality did push its way back into my consciouness.

I was sitting in the company bus, looking outside the window. I saw few teenagers who were playing football. It felt like, the guy is there, playing, and I am going to office! I could have pictured myself in his place just a few days back, but nowww (period) !!

I understood that I am just on the edge of ending up my student/teenage/virtual world and I have already put my first step in the real world. But the thought that I have a semester left, gives me a last chance to bid farewell to the wonderful student life! Of course I believe that every phase has its own meaning and it depends on the person how he spends that phase.

Any how, the philosophy ends here ;) This is really an action-packed phase for me.

PS : Few more things about Yahoo, other than free food court(lunch), we have unlimited badam milk, hot choclate, chips, namkeens, toffees, caffeine. And I had nothing to do today, so played TT for some time. Loved it !

Roti Kapda Makaan Network

Slowly and comfortably I am settling down in Bangalore. Its my fourth day today. I had Roti, Kapda and Makaan, and just now I got a Network too. Basic human necessities are complete :)

I took a Reliance phone (for the ob reason). This time I didn't go for the cheapest 'Classic' sets, as their talktime (battery) is very less. They don't have earphones facility, and also the phone becomes too hot after a while (I know someone is critisizing me while reading this).
I preferred LG instead. Lookwise it's not better than Classic, but the battery is better ofcourse.
I thought of buying the cheapest LG reliance set, but I paid additional 200 bucks and bought the next set in the series. LD RD 3600. It has FM :)
I will be going to office by bus, and it generally takes one and half hour. So this will be my entertainer. And of course Bangalore has so many FM stations, playing all kinds of songs. Another good thing about this phone is, the FM plays on speaker too, so I don't have to always block my ears with the earphone.
Anyways, I am also continuing using my old number (Goa).
PS : Don't crib that I haven't given my new number :) hehe :D

The Deadliest Trip ever !

The Elephant Beach - Havelock Island

Yahoo , Bangalore

That is true, I am in bangalore, and will be staying here for the next six months. I am here for my intern at Yahoo. I will be joining on Monday 7/7/08.

I did my registration yesterday and also visited the Yahoo Workplace. Awesome ! That was the first thing I said when I saw the place. I will click some pics and upload later.

The best part is the canteen. I shouldn't call it a canteen, instead it is better than a food court. It has a capacity of more than 400 people and the food, OMG, more than 100 different varieties. Ten kinds of salads, four types of bread, etc etc..there were so many things I couldn't even manage to taste 20% of that. And here comes the another best part, its all for free :) Anytime, anything and any amount! Cool huh ?

While exiting I could see few pool tables, tt tables, carroms, etc. There was a Gym too, but I think it was made keeping in mind the guys with bulged tummy ;)

I will write more about the company and its working conditions when I myself experience that ;)

Till then bbye.

(About the last day at andaman, it was dangeroulsy exciting, but I am in no mood to narrate that)
