Without You

The pain I inflict on you is more painful for me…

It’s all darkness around that I see…

Without u this world seems to die…

Without you I can’t even fly….

From Namma Bengaluru to Namma Chennai

First of all… SORRY… Was too lazy to write in the past few months with so many things happening around…

As an update to my earlier write ups… I am done with my college… Working for IMRB International… This is the same company I had wished to work for when I had been there, pitching for my winter project… My wish was granted, but in my wish i forgot to clarify that I specifically wanted Bangalore as my location… So… I am here in Chennai (totally my fault 😦 )

Chennai…hmmmmmm… I don’t hate the place but I don’t love it either… I was too scared to live here alone that I got my granny along and I have fully set up my house here with all the amenities… But (why is there always a BUT?????) she doesn’t like the place… The people here look simple and sweet but I don’t understand them (lack of knowledge of Tamil u see)… The food is yummy and better than Bangalore but I get fewer opportunities to not eat the home-made food… There are many places to hang out but I don’t have many friends here… There are a few beaches too but the climate is so that if u wanna sweat like a pig, they are just for you… The office is good, colleagues are wonderful but I feel so useless in office at times sitting without work… I remember people telling me that u can save a lot in Chennai but I am spending even more…. Phew!!!

Alright let me stop this butt kicking but story here or I will go on and on…

On a serious note… Chennai is a wonderful city except the climate… The infrastructure is far better than most of the metros… And yes they have bus numbers in English… (Pay attention BEST community – Mumbai)… People here look very sincere and conservative… If you have friends u can easily survive here but if you don’t then this is how u keep cribbing and crying…

I know i have cribbed a lot about being in Chennai and my dissatisfaction is going to grow each time I crib but (wth) I can’t help it…

Staying far away from all the people u love is not easy… and I am learning to lead life the harder way… I tell you my parents have actually spoilt me… totally!!!

Everytime I need consolation for being in Chennai… I think of a dear friend posted in Trivandrum… God give her all the strength to survive there and give me all the power to fight the heat in Chennai… 😀

I miss Namma Bengaluru… 😦

Why I miss that place is going to take another blog space…

I will be there for coming two weeks… Planning to make the most of it… Hopefully you will get to read the next blog soon on ‘Bangalore Diaries’

Till then take care and stay happy…

Love…

Crazy time ;-)

The hustle bustle, the confused faces, the puzzled looks around are just adding to my anxiety. These are the moments when with each good news around, the restlessness grows… This is the ‘Placement season’, a major step towards our future.
I remember a similar season which visited me four years ago… the objective was the same but the mood was different… That was the time when I was not much aware of the mannerisms and culture of the corporate world. I got recruited by the best Indian MNC then, even when I had sufficient time in hand to look for jobs. Ideally I got through the first company I sat for. But now, things are different. I am a novice in this field… with each company coming to the campus; I have to clarify a lot of self doubts. Have to be patient so as to be in command of the decisions I take. There is a lot of fear to get into the wrong company or the wrong sector. One wrong decision can do a big harm…
The fight to be the costliest to the recruiting company is making folks forgo their desired profiles. These are fanatical moments. We are happy for the friends who get good jobs soon but envious that they have nothing much left to worry about now.
These mixed emotions are driving us crazy… but am sure within a span of few months, these are going to be some of the wonderful memories we are going to cherish…
During all this, the best thing I like is the bunch of friends who hang around cracking jokes and cheering up all those who couldn’t make through…
We are struggling, in a sense, against each other too. But this is the way it has to be.
Together we fight against each other to get the best for ourselves.
The placement season is on… Best of luck to me and the others facing this too…
Have to work on my pigeonhole now… Catch you guys later 😉

PigeonHole

Publishing my second post at 7:30 am. Reason – Got up EARLY in the morning to prepare for a mock interview today. Preparation – Create a pigeonhole for myself … (Strengths, Weaknesses….blah blah). I just wonder if the recruiters are going to believe everything I say???? I mean how can they verify the things in just an interview. People are smart enough to fake things – they can fake for just an hour of interview as well…

I wished there was some kind of parameter adopted during interviews to judge intelligence, the creativity, the power of logical imagination. To foresee that though the person might be new to a field, but the passion to excel is just going to make him/her better than the existing expertise.

Anyways got to get back to revising few principles of marketing. Just hoping to face a better process of analyzing a student’s capabilities.

Today is one of those days when there is going to be a reality check ( at a pretty smaller level though). Will get to know where I stand. Wish me Luck. I hope to fit in my own pigeonhole… 😉

Hope I rock @ the mock… (It rhymes :D)

Goodbye for now…
Cheers…

Hellooo

Hello!!!

Here I am, writing my own blog. This was one thing I was avoiding for a long time. One of the main reasons being I hesitated in letting my feelings out. But I would have started earlier had I got this kind of trigger before. I have always believed that whatever happens to a person happens for a cause which is good for him/her. Hence, this blog will surely do me some good in some way (as per my belief) *Fingers crossed*

So before we start discussing things here on this blog, let me introduce myself to you. I am a person who absolutely loves spending time with herself. I accept that I am not very much into books, but I do read once in a while. This is not the first time I am getting into writing. I have written quite a few times but those were mostly the by-products of my emotional outburst. Hence, they were hardly ever shared with others. I love watching cartoons, currently watching Duck Tales. Love to shop, eat (especially Chinese), play CS (aka smash ;-)), sleep and travel (though haven’t got much of a chance to travel yet). And if you believe in sun signs, I am a typical Taurean …

I guess one post is not sufficient to write about myself so I will let the subsequent posts do the talking for me. Got to go now… Loads of work pending for the coming two days.

Before I sign off, few unremarkable things I did during Diwali holidays –

  1. Did not go home (Thanks to my college management).
  2. Loads of WINDOW shopping.
  3. Lost my wallet with remarkably good amount of cash and cards.
  4. Watched Pati, patni aur woh (all for the cute kids and not Rakhi Sawant).

Plans ahead –

  1. To get some sense into my blog.
  2. And a lot more which I will tell you later…

So keep visiting…

Catch u later…
