Seasons change.. Do we ???

Seasons change .. Do we ? Its been around 2 years in Mumbai ... Many seasons have changed and the vicious circle is goin on n on... Am i still the same? Have the people around me changed ? Lotta questions...But very few answers..

I happen to see a mallu movie 'Rithu' somedays back, n the theme of the movie was the same... Now beleieve me guys, its not the kindaa movie u see when u go 4 a google search on 'mallu movie'.. It was different.. So i think its betta to put it as a malayalam movie rather than a mallu Now lemme comeback... In the last two years, lotta things have changed... I have become more care free about life... They say, u becom serious wen u grow .. But in my case, its just the opposite... It was raining here in summer n it is hot n humid on a winter .. Its d same with me..i have become more unpreditable..It may be the same with most of you.. But who cares, rt...

Now dont get me wrong.. This is not a post on meteorology or seasons.. I was just tryin to do the simile, metaphor thing.. u kno...But times have changed.. I remember the day when my eyes lit up,when dad gifted me a Nokia 3310,some 5 years ago.. now i went 4 for a Nokia 5800 touch phone, jus because i wanted a change .. Our priorities have shifted.. I used to be really happy when i had a pocket money of 1 k .. But now i find a salary of 25 K jus 'not enuf'...n the major change - Cochin to Mumbai... Somedays back me n ma friends went to a lounge to spend some time...One of my friends,Sajith(*name not changed,he he) was wearing slippers and not shoes... The manager of pub spotted this n asked us to leave saying ' it was not allowed'... Sajith was like 'wtf... this is tommy hilfiger' n all those stuffs.... But then the other guy with full on attitude said ' so!! please leave sir '.. U shd have seen Sajith's expression then .... Man that was really funny ..Would this have happened in Cochin?

Times have changed.. But there r many things that dont change with seasons.. Wheneva there is a call from any of ma old friends,i still feel the same old happiness... The neighbour's dog still barks at me.. I still love wakin up late.. I still prefer KFC chicken over idli sambar.I still love Mohanlal over Akshay Many many more such things.....But do we purposefully forget those things which were on the top of our list once... Are all of us oppurtunists, one way or the other.. I am startin to get a bit philosophical.. So its time to stop

Afta writin this much, the same question still pertains.. Seasons change..Do we ??

Computers - The flipside

"Come on Anoop stop it , u write all kinds of crap in the blog..n u r nt writin anythin abt me"..These r nt my words, i feel my laptop is sayin these to me . So here u go ..i shd atleast do this 2 da so called computer,with whom i spend around 12 hrs a day ... N 4 all those people outhere , i have a very popular nick name that even my very close friends doesn kno my real one. yeaa, my name is Anoop Chandra..

"Ooo jaggu, u r crossin d limits!! u jus nw told that u r gonna write abt me..n nw u r tellin abt ur name n contact details out here" that was my comp.. I am a typical software engineer who nwadays type much more than what i speak daily...But unlike all others,who r fed up of this IT life n d life with computers.. I love my computer .. I am so fascinated with my work so much so that i can keep lookin at it for hours in office. Only wen my boss come over to ma place n ask me if i am dreamin, i stop starin at my comp n do some work.. lol

I don even like to shut down my pc wen i leave 4 d weekend.. I don want my dear comp to close her eyes so fast.. Due to which i end up payin a fine of Rs.100 every monday .. Yeaa,these r recession days dahlings..even if u r workin for the TATAs( like me) they wont spare u .. Cuttin down electricity bills, u c.. Nwadays they hav found a lotta ways to put a hole into our pockets..N i seriously feel that,computers r also like us.. So afta doin some hectic crap work in my comp, i watch some movies or play games in it.. Its not 4 me.. Its 4 my dear computer.. U c, i am nt a selfish person at all(atleast believe nw ,guys).. I keep aside all my imp wrk,jus to give some time 4 my pc to relax.. As u kno, all work n no play make miss laptop a dull gal..

I read somewhere, some kindaa stupid survey.. Around 72% of software professional,dont have time to spend time wit their families/friends.. I am sure that this survey is also like those stupid facebook quizes (Amith always end up a SRK or a hunk with n number crushes etc in those)..Nw u kno wat i mean, even if u don kno him.. I have lotta time to be in touch with my friends..Infact i talk wit mor no o ma friends thru ma comp daily..

" Hey enuf enuf!! u r startin to say non sense as usual,bt this time about me"..My comp is gettin angry, i think i shud stop nw bcos even tomo i need to move ma fingers on her...

Outta my zone... Pot pourri

Its nt hot summer anymore..its nt the same place anymore..its nt the same mood anymore.. But i still feel bored..I still feel to kick my friend's ass 4 no reason... Yeaa , i am still me..Then y was it that,there were no posts here 4 d last 2 mnths... Was it d so called writer's block? Was it that i was too busy ? Was it that i was insecure of fakeiplplayer(lol..wat d heck) ? Was it that i didn jus do it ?

woohoo,lotta questions... But how does these matter anymore.. N who cares abt those... I am back n am still me, very ME. Lotta things r still goin ovaaa my head n some r still hitting on my head back.. I try to dodge but in vain.. More imprtntly Mumbai Indians r outaa IPL, its slowly startin to rain here,n congress r back..

I thot of nt mentionin abt fakeiplplayer here..But still, here u go . i feel he is jus a no guts guy.. I always loved a real nobody rather than a fake somebody. But i shd say, it was way mor interstin than any of the KKR matches.. Yeaa..yeaa.. i kno they pulled 2 off at last, but hw does that help wen u lose a straight ten..

N btw, it was my bday,somedays back.. Till this may 2nd, i din know that friends r more strong on ur bday.. It was d time 4 bday bumps, n 2 of ma friends kicked my butts outta place.. For the next 2 days, i was tryin to sort out,100 diff ways to sleep .. if u know wat i mean.. That was a hella kindaa present.. So this time around, i have noted all my friend's bdays on my phone.. Y miss a chance to giv it back..Afta all, what love witout pain..rt..

Damn..I need a beer

"Damn man ..we r screwed up.. jus checkout the economic times" my friend told me.. "ET,u must be kiddin,i kno the stocks r down"..,i was as usual in my in lazy best. "Jus check it out,jaggu..!!! This time he was serious in his tone. I logged into ET website n there was an interview of my company's CEO up there..

Damn..the same expression from me also..Appu jus saw this n asked "What happened ???". " No salary hike this year 4 us,dude..Do u know wat that means.."- me. " Oh come on..I knw this wud happen b4 itself",he tried to maintain a poker face. " Relax ,da..recession..its recession time"-he.

Awwh..I am tired of this word,can somebody tell me an alternate one,so that i can suggest it to my team. I keep hearing this word again n again n again.. This was some gud 2 weeks back..

Recession means a temporary decline in economic activity in oxford.But it means much mor to me nw.. It means that i have to shift our stay from powai(rent,18 k ) to Borivalli(rent 9k).It means that i have to gulp KF instead of carlsberg nw(4 non drinkers,these r 2 means that i have to watch less movies a week . It means that i should feast on the dinner from office canteen,instead of fried chicken..It means i had to stay a week in thane hearin all those crap advices from sajith( i kno saj,u r readin list goes on n on..

Above all,it means that i had to part from my gud friend Prejoy..He was unallocated for some time(d so called bench in IT).N a week back ,HR asked him to go to Bangalore as there wer no projects in Mumbai..His butts was on fire but it was betta than the fire , fear of gettin fire-d. He left to Bangalore.

Speakin abt Prejoy, dude u redefined the word FRIENDS. I am gonna dedicate an entire post 4 u..wait 4 it..its comin.. Jus 2 weeks back..i was complainin to everyone around..Its all d same,we need some change,..Life is gettin mundane n more monotonous..N nw here we go,in jus 2 weeks ,everythin changed..Everythin around me has changed..Damn.. i didn want such a big change.But there is somethin in common..I was screwed up,nw n then,bt 4 diff reasons...

This 9 letter word has such an impact in such a short period..(Hey com on, i did count the letters,recession has 9 letters)..Hey guys,u don trust me..then y did u count it again ? U guys r havin emotional recession now.. n nw lemme ask u somethin ,whats d diff between a software engineer n a barber ? A barber can feed a family of 4. (in malayalam,they say , ചെരകാന്‍ പോക്കുനത് ആയിരുന്നു ഇടിലും ഭേദം ) .
I know i am exaggeratin a bit..Bt u neva know..this mite happen in d future..N i read somewhere,recession is when ur neighbour loses his job.Depression is when u lose ur job.

Damn,, I need a beer..Oh its recession period..Gimme a glass of water,instead..

Love is in the air... was valentine's day yday.. The day of love.. ..d day every rose seller had been waitin 4 1 year.. d day every gal wants somethin special from her loved one.. d day every boy takes extra care to make his partner happy.. Hey does gays celebrate valentine's day ? Appu n sandeep,u can ans this ques .. eh,, did i say that...

Hw does that matter..may be...

They say love is d most wonderful feeling among all d emotions.. even i think soo... Yday ,i saw my friend nithin runnin frm one shp 2 other 2 get a pair of hearshaped balloons.. At last,wen he got one, his eyes gt lit up.. Wtf .. jus a baloon n a card 4 ur loved one on valentine's day, i asked... He showed his empty pocket to me while he was holdin firmly on those balloons..This exactly shows d condition of a software engineer these days..Recession is slowly affectin luv also, i guess .. N there wer some atha kindaa peple around-d so calld self proclaimed moral police. These people were talkin all kindaa nonsense ..They said they were gonna make each boy n gal tie knot,if they spot any 2gether on valentines day.. A big F to these morons... But who cares man,,, Love is from d heart..Love flows freely thru all turbulance..

N there is a speciality that i have noticed abt this day . Its always difficult to please a gal.Expecially when anger is at d tip f her nose. Bt on this wndrful day,evry gal is happy with a sweet little rose or a gift that she gets... Y cant every day b a valentine's day..Y can't every one be happy like on a vday? Y can't everyone love eachother as on a vday rather than fight on some stupid craps..? Or is that Mr.cupid is at his very best on this day? i doubt.....

But acc 2 me Love is the mother of all emotions.. Isnt happiness there in love.. Isnt grief there in love..Isnt anger there in love.. Isnt affection there in love.. So wen u r expressin any of these feelings,,u r one way or d atha reflectin ur love.. Ohh.. i am turnin philosophical.. which exactly means that i am .. So next time go slap ur girlfriend instead of kissin her to express ur love...

Lets cherish this wonderful feeling n dis wndrful day... I have been tellin lottaa stuffs abt love bt i didn say anythin abt my love.. Here u go .. Dear i know u will be readin this post... As u said somedays b4 ,thoovanathumbikallilae jayakrishnaeyum radhayeyum polae(Non malayalees pls pardon me).. I love u......N i am serious abt this..


My Love may not be perfect,but its true..

Ohh .. Its Time...

Time n tide waits for no man, so make hay while the sun shines because today's moments are tommorow's golden moments... Hey did i scare you.. come on , i am nt gonna write somethin very motivatin abt time managemen here. There r betta people around .. lol

My mom always used to tell me ,wake up on time!! . Sleep on time!! Eat on time !! Then later my dad used to tell me 'hey u screwed up in exam bcos u didn manage time properly'. Then in the ground,friends used to tell me 'u made a mess after the half time' .. n nw my boss says 'u r nt on time for d meeting'. Every nw n then i keep hearin abt this time . i am fed up with ths time. Y shd d clock decide whats d time? Rather if i can go to the time i wan by jus rotatin d needle !!

People adviced me to read books n attend seminars on time management. N infact i planned to go 4 1 such .. i asked one of the guys who was organisin it ' dude when does it start'. He replied ' by 9 .. eh 10.. '. lol..I was really impressed with his time managemen that i decided to drop the plan, bt instead went 4 a movie. Here again.. d bloody time. .Yeah u guessed it rite,i was late,d movie had already started.

Time infact is crazy.. Y does it creep while i am attendin a seminar or class ? Y does it fly when i am talkin with a pretty gal ? Y do i always feel if i had somemore time to sleep ? Y do somethings appear mundane n monotonous while some other things appear excitin durin d same time ? I cant control time nor do i kno ansers for these questions on time..
But i certainly kno somethin, its time 4 me 2 sleep. N nw if u feel that u hav wasted ur time, come join me, u too are poor in so called 'time management'.. Someone please invent d time machine fast .

2008- A rollercoaster ride...

Welcome 2009- the year of change,hope,fun,love n whatmore..I have been waitin for u 4 qte a long time..I really don kno y all the people i kno say that year 2008 was either terrible or too bad..But 4 me 2008 wasnt that bad.It was a tremendous experience or may be an experience which i didn have all these years..It was a rollercoaster ride in which i loved n even jumped n shouted at the top of my voice at the highs while screamed n closed my eyes at the lows.. Hey bt guess what even i was waitin 4 2009.. Jus becos i wanted to have a change.. A new beginnin.. But at the end of d day hw does a new year influence u that much,,

So when i lookback i can see a lotta new faces..Some so cute,some so sexy n of some whom i always wanted to kick the ass. 2008 actually reformed me ,the bitter experiences made me strong n the bright spots made me laugh(well ...actually nothin of that am still d same ..)
Let me look back those 365 days..

I think i am doin a lotta documentation work nwadays... i make a lot of excel sheets in office these days whcih make me feel that i am an excel-ent don look like that, i am sorry..come on even i knw that it was a bad one). So let me be in the rewind mode n tell u guys the highs n lows of 2008. Let me key in the pitstops n milestones of 2008 as i do in a doc in numbered format 4 dat matter.

1.Mumbai n jus mumbai at the top.Its been exactly one year in mumbai.Till 2008 happend i was pretty much happy with what cochin had to offer to me. But nw in 2009 i love this place a lot .I love my mumbai. i have already written a post abt Mumbai..So no more gaga lala abt Mumbai nw.
2.The lil bit of hindi that i have picked up in 2008(Actually i am being humble..I speak awsome n cute hindi these days acc 2 lotta mumbaikars) . N hw can i 4gt that famous dialogue of mine ' aunty mujhe nahalo' , lol all my friends in mumbai knos abt this n all those in office.Thanks appoos Ruchi for giving it such a big publicity.Bold
3.Lotta new fun experiences.
4.My new job.. Hey nw after bein discussed lotta thins abt documentations b4..some of u mite get a feeling that i am steno ..I am nt - i am bonafide software engineer, guys...chil!!
5. My new dell laptop ..
n many more

1. Friends- 2008 gave me a lotta new friends bt i also lost touch with many o ma buddies.One of my new year resolutions is to get back in touch with all my buddies.
2.My college life.. I am missin it badly.. durin those 4 years i didn actually realise that it wud b one of d most memorable part of my life. When i hear d word college a whole lot of emotions flash thru my mind in a second.. all those memories.. I am sure that u will also be feelin the same .

3.Then came 26/11..Mumbai terror attacks. It made all of us shocked,frustrated n more importantly regroup. watchin those gory 60 hrs in tv made me more patriotic at the sametime also made me irritated. jus 3-4 days b4 26/11 we were in Leopolds cafe .Neva did we expect such a thin 2 happn there. N also at CST,Taj n d trident.
4.Sharing those sad moments with Amith.All those people close ,knos what i am talkin abt.For others,somethin really awful happened in my friend's life in 2008.For the same very reason i hate 2008 d most..

2009 is here n i am ready..Lets hav fun all ova again..lets hope 2009 turns out to b better than 2008 for 1 jus simple reason that ' ALL WE NEED IS EVERYTHIN'....
