Weeks 76, 77 and 78

I reached the peak of frustration during some days in the last three weeks. I just want to forget all those days as the year goes by. I want to start the new year afresh and want to live a happy and peaceful life. Life has been so tough for me the last year and I never want to look back at this year happily except for one day. Yes, I can not forget the day I got placed in Capgemini but still I am waiting to join the company. This waiting has frustrated me a lot because I have been waiting for the call from the company since June. In a nutshell the year 2011 was very boring and frustrating except for the day I got placed in Capgemini. But still there were other happy moments that gets faded away when I look back at whatever I went through the last one year.

During the last three weeks I watched two Tamil films namely Porali and Rajapaattai. I watched the later in Bangalore along with one of my new room mates. The first movie is worth watching. Wait for the second one to hit television channels very soon. Please don't watch Rajapaattai in theaters. 

I spent the three weeks in Bangalore except for a few days. I went to different companies searching for a temporary job with little confidence of getting job. At last I found a temporary job but I am again waiting to join it. I hope I will be joining in the new year. I am planning to work for the company till I get the call from Capgemini. The hope of getting the call soon is growing day by day because some of Anna university students who got placed in Capgemini got the call. 

Though I had lived in Bangalore for 4 years the cold that I experienced so far this winter is a bit more on the higher side. The state has seen lowest temperatures in last 100 years.  But still I always love the climate of Bangalore compared to Chennai or Salem. 

Right now I am in my home town for the year end. I will be travelling to Bangalore again on new year's day. Visited my native village today and felt happy to see the changes that have undergone. 

Well that is all to say about the past three weeks. I wish all my reader friends a happy weekend and a prosperous new year too.

Week 75

Another week at home after the week in Banglore. When I came home I had cold and it resulted in fever the next day. I spent the whole week at home most of the time. Paid two visits to my native to take a look at the farm. Watched a Tamil movie (Osthe). Went to the theater with great expectations but the expectations were shattered and it looked an average movie to me. 

It was the normal routine that kept the whole week going for me. The children in the colony were a kind of relief in the evenings. Its always nice to be with school-going kids. They used to play chess and cards at the entrance of the apartment and its a good time pass to watch them play. I don't miss the chances offered by them to play with them. One wont know how the time flies when you are with school children. 

As usual I cooked chicken gravy today in the absence of my parents.  Watched the cricket match between India and West Indies that happened to be a kind of nail biter. Till the West Indian batsman Pollard got out the match was interesting to watch. India won the series 4-1. Eagerly waiting for the Indian tour of Australia to watch my favourite cricketer, Dravid, in action. 

Coming to the new kid in the family. My sister has shifted to home after two days at hospital and duo are fine now. They have named her Aashitha Gnanasekaran. Seeing her through Skype daily and saw some of her pics. 

I feel happy about one more thing. My mom has learnt to operate computer and connect to the internet. In my absence she is opening Skype and talking to my sister without problem on most days. Why I say this is she is only SSLC and from a farming background but she is picking up things well with experience. 

I am going to Banglore again to look for a temporary job. Hope so this time I will get one. Well that is all for the week.  Have a nice time reader friends.

Weeks 73 and 74.

A lot happened in the past two weeks. Firstly I went to Banglore to search for a job and attended three interviews for a BPO job but I couldn't get through due to my engineering stream. HP interview was the most funniest of the all wherein they said more candidates have turned out. They just conducted the group discussion and sent everyone out saying none is selected from your batch. This happened for the last four batches of the day. I should have gone a bit earlier but I was unable to find the address till 11.30. I almost walked 10 kilometers a day in Bangalore in search of the addresses of the companies. In the evenings I met some of my BE classmates and it was nice to get together with them after a very long time. I have lost some weight due to excess walking and look somewhat leaner now. Because I was eating home food for the last six months, I have put some weight and was weighing around 80.

Yesterday I came to Salem from Bangalore. This weekend I dint go anywhere because I am not feeling well due to mild fever and running nose. I have to return to Bangalore and continue to hunt for a job within two days. I desperately need a temporary job, so will try my best to get one.

Now coming to the most important of all. We have got a new entrant in the family with US citizenship. Friends and relatives in my close circle would have it by now. Yes, my sister is blessed with a girl baby yesterday. The duo are fine with good health in the hospital. Was very happy to see the baby and also to become uncle. They will get discharged within a day or two.  I will update her name here once she is given one. They are yet to finalize on a name but they are specific in giving her a name starting with A. They have almost narrowed down on it.

I like to mention one thing that shocked me during my stay in Bangalore last week. I was searching for the HP recruitment center in Kormangala and on the way to it I saw this shocking scene. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw some girls smoking in a gang in front of a shop like men normally do. Until now I have only read in papers, watched in movies and so on about girls smoking in public. This is the first time I have seen it live. Kalam's dreams of India becoming a super power by 2020 will be a question mark if this continues.
