Weeks 102 and 103

The past two weeks were not different from the routine that I had in the previous weeks. Though I had time, I dint write last week's update because of laziness. I felt that there was nothing interesting to mention in the post about the last two weeks except for few things. 

I won't be able to disclose few things as of now. But there are some other things that I would like to mention here. For the first time in my life I donated blood at my office in a blood donation camp. To my surprise, many ladies donated blood compared to men. The amount of blood taken was 350ml and I did not know this till I donated. One of the  statistics says that only a quarter of the blood requirement is met in India. I don't know why people don't come forward to donate blood though there is a lot of advertisement and awareness about the requirement in the society. Probably all are afraid like me. Believe me, I had a normal day even after donating 350ml of blood. Some had the dizziness but I dint feel so. I never donated blood during my college days but somehow got the courage to donate and I am happy that I have done it at least now. Hope, I will be donating it regularly hence forth. 

I along with some of my batch mates who have got into perl technology have been moved to testing practice since the nature of the job is mostly related to testing. Many of us are really happy that we got into testing but only God knows what would happen in future. I would be happy with development or testing but not production support. People in the industry say that we won't feel the stress if we are into testing. It makes me feel a little relieved because I don't like to think a lot and stress myself. 

A serious advice to all those who read this post. If you haven't watched the movie Saguni by Karthik, please don't watch. All of my friends who watched it are very upset. So beware friends.

Well that's it for now. I hope I have said all I wanted to. I wish all the reader friends a happy time until I come up with my next update.

Week 101

Its a comparatively stress less week since I moved to a place that is closer to my office. But still, this place is half an hour from my office by local train. The same bench life is going on at office from Monday to Friday. We have been told that we will be undergoing a training in perl from Monday. Have to wait and see what is gonna happen. I won a coffee cup from IBM who had come to conduct a session on cloud computing. I managed to win this only after gathering all the answers from the previous participants.

I have got two north Indians as my room mates and I am learning new words in Hindi. So far I have not started conversing with them in Hindi but I have a desire to learn Hindi. Lets see whats gonna happen. 

Well, there is nothing actually interesting going on in my life right now except that I have crossed 100 weeks of personal blogging.

Weeks 98, 99 and 100

The heat in the city has not gone down so far. I am at home for the weekend and feel a lot better to be away from the hot and humid city where I live. Anyhow I will have to be there tomorrow. I have got a call from Pune saying that I would be trained in perl and will be given project at the same office. So, Chennai seems to be the location for me at least for now. The last one month has been full of fun at office with nothing to do. Reporting to the office at 11.30 AM and coming back at 4.30 PM was the routine. In between we used to check mails, play carrom and watch movies at the video screening hall. We have watched almost all the movies in the library collection I believe. But, I think from now on the routine would differ and we will have to do what we are meant to do. 

I couldn't write the last two weeks because I did not have the internet connection. I was staying with Lingesh in Tharamani but now I have shifted to Perungalathur. I shifted from there because the travelling time from my room to office was almost 2 and half hours. Now I have moved into a room where two of my colleagues live and it is only half an hour from my office by local train. The new room has an A/C and an air cooler to keep ourselves away from the heat. 

I was highly frustrated whenever I traveled from Tharamani to Paranur. The crowded buses and trains add fuel to the flames. Then you know what would happen if we don't drink water for 2 hours and have to stand during half of travel without place to sit. The dehydration made me to drink at least 3 liters of water everyday. I don't know whether or not I have mentioned here in my blog that I have stopped taking soft drinks and canned drinks since last one year. I go for the fresh juice, sugarcane juice, butter milk or tender coconut to keep the body in good condition during summer. 

I faced all these problems or in other words I was living this life along with sinus for half of the past three weeks. Now I am almost fine without sinus but still a tinge of normal life is missing. I feel I would be normal very soon. 

I wish all the reader friends a happy life with good health until I come up with my next post.
