Its 19th July tomorrow, B'day again.. But not mine ;)


This post is especially dedicated to my beloved friend pallu :) Do u know y? It’s her B’day tomo. When I wrote about my B’day, definitely have to write something for her B’day also. Hey pallu Wish u a very Happy n wonderful B’day :) Many more happy returns of the day.

It’s been 13 yrs since I know her. It’s not just that I know her. She is part of my life n family now. It’s incomplete without her :)

I met her in Sadvidya Primary school, when I joined there for 5th std. That was the time she too had joined. It’s been a long journey since then. We never got to know how we became so intimate. Friends, classmates, seniors, juniors, teachers everyone in our school remember both of us even to this day. If they meet any one of us, definitely they will ask about the other person. That’s how we were and we are.

Today I was remembering her B’day 13 yrs ago. Suddenly the idea of this post came to my mind. 13 yrs ago, u know what was my gift to her?? I donno whether she still remembers it or not! A Five Star” chocolate!. It was my dad who insisted me to gift her on her B’day. It was just 1 month after we knew each other. I didn’t know what to gift. I never gave gifts to anyone till then.

As it is in every friendship, even we fought, argued, and sometimes stopped talking also. But that was not the end. Though she moved to different city as her father got transferred, we were in contact. Thanks to the letter writing habit and then to the communication technology which didn’t make us feel we are not together :)

Now again, she is with me. I doubt whether I’ll be there with her for this B’day or not!! Both of us will be working sitting in front of computer.

Anyway, I wish her a very Happy B’day n wonderful year ahead :) I remember the following lines of some SMS .. ;)

Met u,
Became friends,
Had fun,
Freaked out,
Shared secrets,
Fought wid u, over u, for u..
Cried for u n wid u,

Teased u,
Hurt u,
Missed u,

N here I’m still thinking of u.. huh!! Long journey rt?
Hope it never ends… :)


Cheers,

Sady :)

My best ever B’day on 07/07/07 :)


This time my B’day was something special.. U know why? One of the reasons is it was on 07.07.07 and one more it was the costliest B’day ever he he..


On this B’day I got to know with how many ppl I converse without any break.. I myself didn’t know that I talk to soo many ppl.. Many of my friends and collegues remembered my B’day and wished me!!! Great
:)


Along with this, lot of B’day gifts!!! Each gift is nice and cute!!!
:)


Hey forgot to tell, I even cut the cake..
:) This was the second or third time :). Always my B’days were something like get up early in the morning, take headbath, wear new dress n goto temple. Then have sweets which mummy would have prepared n also what daddy would have brought.. Go out with friends in the morning. Again in the night go out for dinner with parents.. :) This time papa got cake too.. This time I started feeling as if I’m growing younger with every B’day :)

Thanks to all who made my day a very special day :)

Cheers,
Sady :)

The feel at the end of one year in IT industry :)

I completed an year in this IT industry on 3rd july 2007. Along with the proudness of sticking onto the same company into which I joined, a year ago..

What were my expectations? How was that feeling when I was about to join?? Ofcourse all of u would have gone through that stage. But let me share my thoughts regarding that :)

Hmmm, I got this offer through my campus recruitment. So never ever faced the problem of searching for a job after completion of degree.. I’m lucky for that matter. It was just after my final sem exams when I had only 15 days of vacation. I mean only 15 days were left for my joining.. I had to search for my accommodation in Bangalore within that time, which was very painful.. :(

Just before the joining day, I was somewhat excited and somewhat tensed. I had a picture of how the office environment will be as I did my final sem prj here. But the tension was how will I be able to handle the responsibilities? Will the teammates be co-operative? Etc etc…

For my surprise there were only 2 in my team including me ;). I got a very good support from my team as and when more ppl joined. I was the youngest among all.. they treated me as if I’m a kindergarden kid. :P

Meanwhile, I even got the chance to know whats job insecurity, how will the deadlines be, why ppl change jobs, the term called "on bench" , etc ect.. To tell in short, experienced the heat of IT industry in all sorts.. :) I even got to know many ppl who were my collegues n now few of them are my best buddies..

But now when I look back, its a nice experience. Never got to know how an year passed. One major thing I understood is Learning is a continous process, no end.

Now I’m an experienced professional in the corporate world!!! No more a fresher :)

Wait for the second part at the end of 2nd year :)

cheers,
Sadhana :)
