I learnt last week!

Never Kid with God!!

I am damn serious with it (You believe it or not). But if you don abide by what I have said, you too will just end up banging your own head against the wall or wherever you prefer to. God & Fools are the only two people you should never dare to kid with for the simplest reason being, they don’t and will never get that you were just kidding and was never serious.

As after a long time I am writing something very serious let me write about GOD.

One morning I just stepped out of my house to start for office when it was still drizzling as usual. Being in Chennai “As Usual” in context with rain may sound lil absurd but yes Chennai too witnessed the downpours and clouds seemed to have promised never to betray, its ever-betrayed love Chennai. Imagining my own plight of driving to office in rain, getting my clothes soaked in muddy water I uttered, “Hei bhagwan!! Is this rain ever gonna stop? This weather doesn’t suit Chennai at all.” And booommm!!

When I started back from office there was no sign of even existence of Chennai’s newly found love. Next morning when I stepped out of the house to start for office and looked up in the sky, there was the same old love of Chennai, the scorching sun. Horrified I pleaded “Oh god please please please I was just kidding. Don’t get it so serious.” But as expected, I just failed to make him understand 🙄 Dare I kid with him again!!

Mute the Volume!!

You got to believe me when I say I was so occupied with work that I totally forgot about the “Ladies Room” where I was still IN. Though it was a ladies room with all types of non-stop blabbers, there was a pin drop silence all the time while I waited for my manager to come. But never did I know that the silence was just the indication of the upcoming storm. And booomm!!

There came he. And the moment he came to my desk all the sleepy members of the room woke up at once and after that all WE could hear is ting ting ting ting & ting. Perplexed my manager asked- “Why do I get to hear this ting-ting-ting only from your desk? From where does this sound come?” Wondering what to reply to him I said- “Well the sound comes from the Ladies-Room.”

If you haven’t understood yet what is a “Ladies-Room”? Well it’s a reference to the “Ladies-Conference-Chat” 😀 . Now as the name may decipher but it isn’t always true that the “Ladies-Room” doesn’t have any guy 😉

“Go-blank” before starting the session!

By “Go-blank” I don’t mean to say that you should erase even what you are going to speak on. Else all you will do is just stand in front and blink at people. By “Go-blank” I mean don’t be pre-occupied with any other thing.

Recently I took a session on “Test Design Techniques” & I myself don’t remember what I spoke 🙄 I was well prepared. I wasn’t scared of the learned people present in the conference room. I had good knowledge of what I had to speak. But still when I came out of the room I had least idea of what I spoke or what discussion happened 🙄 . And from all I could recollect I knew it could have been better. I never spoke what I had prepared. And it was all cz I entered with a pre-occupied mind and came out with the same. The attendees said I was good & the session was interesting too. But least they know that I know the truth 😛 .

Usually people blabber on Fridays but I am doing it on Monday. And the main reason behind it is the distracted mind that’s not letting me write/complete anything 🙄

Miss You!!

August 22, 2010 2 comments

The decisions made in anger or frustration sometimes could leave us later with no other option  than repent. And most of the time there is no way to get back.

I had already decided. The planning was on since long and finally the decision too was also in my favor. I was happy. May be I was. I didn’t know how to react. Yes, I asked for it. I wanted it. But when it came, I wasn’t able to decide whether this is what I wanted. I was running away and at that moment, that seemed the only way to get out of all that was running in my mind.

The announcements were made. I had to report in Pune. I could feel my body already numb when all my batch mates started congratulating me for getting the location of my choice when many others were still complaining.

“But is it right? How will mummy react to it? She doesn’t even have a clue of what I am up to. Why did I do it to myself and those related to me? Why am I running away and from whom? Self?”

I had no idea how to react to my own decision. I wasn’t able to rejoice cz I was worried about my family. And on the other side, I so wanted to go cz I just wanted to be alone somewhere, far from the reach of all those who know me. It was all planned long back.

“So, which location do you prefer Anu?

Anywhere in India will be ok for me, except Chennai.

But you are settled here with your family right?

Yes, but I don’t wanna be here anymore. Give me any location but not Chennai plz.”

It was me who asked for it. I should be happy. I was happy. May be I was.

“Mummy I have got Pune as my location. I got to report there in 2 weeks!

What? Pune? But, why didn’t you ask for Chennai? Who else is reporting there?

None from my batch. I have no idea if anybody there from other batches too. But, I am going mummy.

But why did you accept Pune? We don’t even know anybody there.

Mummy that and all I will see later. Don’t worry. “

I couldn’t talk to her more. Somehow the day passed in academy and I headed back to home with the confusion still running in my mind and now it was moreover the worries. I had already started counting the days. Just 2 more weeks!

After 2 days-

“Hei where are you?

I will be in camp road in 10 mins. Why?

Just get down near CCD. Need to talk.

Now? It’s already late. I will see you in weekend.

Just get down I said.

But……..Ok I will be there!”

As usual he was already waiting there. As I headed towards him I could sense him uttering something. The anger wasn’t hidden.

“Why are you doing this? Are you out of your mind or what? How could you be selfish and so careless?”


“Did you think of your mum at least once before deciding all these? Idiot why don’t you understand? Who will look after your family in your absence? How could you do this Anu. If it was forced, it’s different, but by choice?”

“They will be taken care of. And if anything needed, I know you are there!”

“Do you even understand that it won’t be easy getting back in future even if you wish too?”

“I know! I am not a fool!”

“Tell me one thing very clearly, why do you wanna go? Who is there in Pune? Is there something you are hiding from me?“

“Eeh nothing like what you are thinking. It’s just,,,hmm I don’t know! But I want to be alone for sometime. I want to know what exactly I want out of my life. There is so much running within and I will be able to answer it all only if I get to think over it. It’s impossible being in the comfort zone here. I know I am acting selfish. I know I am being careless. I know it may not be right. But,,,,,,,,,, “

“What has happened to you? You are talking nuts.”

“Forget it. I can’t explain.”

“OK when you have already decided everything, why are you worrying now?”

“Hmm I am scared! I am scared for Mum!!! I didn’t even tell her that it’s my choice!”

“You should have thought all these before. Anyways don’t worry now. Things will be fine. You take care of yourself. You can’t change the decision made and you don’t even want to. So better forget it all now.”

“Hmm I will leave in a week. In a day or two tickets will be confirmed.”

“Don’t tell me all this. I am not even gonna call you once you are gone from here. This was our last meet! ”

“But I will miss you very badly!!”

I could see his dabbling eyes. That was the moment I realized I am wrong. I realized what I have done. I could feel the pain everyone was going through just cz of my one decision. Away from all the people who love me I will never be at peace. Never!! But then, was there any way out?

After 3 days I got a mail asking to report in MEPZ. I was puzzled. My location was Pune but then why am I asked to report in Chennai?

Morning I reported to my manager in MEPZ and the same afternoon I received the mail asking to report in Pune the next week on Monday.

It meant, I got one more chance. One more chance to decide. Chennai among all my loved ones or Pune only with self. I knew what I wanted. I called up Mum the very moment and asked what should I do now? The reply came instantly- “Dare you think of leaving now!”

And today, here I am writing it all. Had I not met him that day, I would have never realized what I have done and how many it was going to affect including me.

I would have never met the wonderful people who in very short span of time became my good friends 🙂 Things wouldn’t have been same!

And last but not least, I would have missed a wonderful friend I am gifted with. Thanks buddy 🙂

Till date whenever my sis finds the ‘Miss-You” card that he gifted me that day, she says “Di, you wasted such a beautiful card” 😛

Together on F’Ship

How can the friendship week just go without my dedication to that one friend who has always stood by me, what so ever side of life the coin was facing 😉 .

Long Long ago once upon a time

In the holy world “HE” committed a crime

His fate doomed with no way to flee

As HE ended up befriending “ME” 😛

Mentor, teacher, guide and a friend22255_1316092388829_1426304724_861222_4045297_n.jpg

Many times even a technical helpdesk

HIS role changed as per MY need

No sooner HIS life was a mess indeed 😛

Till now it was just the trailer of the show

While the movie had its own way to go

Just drop a message whenever in need

Thanks to the negative balance I keep 😛

Call for treats and never pay the bills

Always order and scream like an elder SIS

Often fight and then don’t talk for months

Still when meet it’s like nothing has happened

The one person whom any moment I approach

Unconditionally helps and never says a NO 🙂

I know I can never thank you buddy in any way

Just wanted to wish you Happy Friendship Day!!! 😀

{Tag}~ Sailing on the same boat :D

If you are wondering what boat is tat, well that’s the boat carrying the sinners 😛 . Though I was tagged by Megz when she 1st kick started this tag, my busy schedule 😛 didn’t let me take it up. Especially cz again I was supposed to speak about myself, how can it not take time 😀 .

Here goes the list of my sins against the gender stereotypes-

1. Accessories NO NO Unlike other gals I have never had this fancy for accessories. They had somehow never been the part of my make-up. I need to be reminded even to put on the ear-rings 🙄 . Now a days after been advised by a friend I keep a set of spare ear-ring in my purse so as to avoid getting into any sort of doubts of being a protestant 😛 . It definitely makes no sense talking about chain/bracelet/bangle or any other accessory 🙄 . It’s very occasional or rather on my mood that I dress up like a typical gal.

2. Non-Expressive I can blabber for hours non-stop, can do bakwass on anything and everything on earth but when it comes to express, unlike gals who are born with this talent, ufff I really suck at that. Let it be anger/happiness/sadness/excitement or any other emotion, I have never learnt to express it. And so are my write up 😐 . And thus usually when any of these reaches the maximum limit, I prefer to stay mum rather blabbering some non-sense 😛 .

3. Dark Side I just love to walk/drive/ride on dark roads. If the street lights are also off, it’s a bliss 😀 . Provided I have a company of course. It’s not that I am scared to  be alone but a company always makes it better 😉 . For the same reason I usually get regarded as a nocturnal by my friends 😀 .

4. Anti- Religious This is one trait of me that I feel to be so against my gender 😀 . Unlike gals visiting temple once a week or month or praying daily at least at home. Hmm I won’t say I am an atheist but yes I neither pray nor do I go to temples unless tempted. Actually I go only once a year 😛 . Now don’t ask when and why.

5. Sportive I  have played most of the sports. Let it be football/volleyball/ basketball/ hockey/ cricket/tennis/athletics I have been a sports women 😀 . Unlike other gals sitting in shade with the sunscreen on, I was always found burning my skin under the hot sun until my 12th standard 😀 . Now the situation is, my relatives refuse to accept that I belong to their family cz of my sun-burnt skin 😐 .

6. Explain me Crush Unlike gals doing ooh aahh wowww seeing some handsome hunk, or sighting their crushes, well that’s simply not my cup of tea 😀 .Usually when asked, gals give a big list of how their life partner should be, I still just blink 🙄 .

7. Soft-toys Naah Undoubtedly they are every gals favorite 😀 . I don’t have any sort of likings for that too. The first soft toy I got was a tiger from a friend and second one was the Panda 😀 . I have got few more but never bought any on my own.

8. No Maska no Buttering I feel gals are better and actually only gals can do this buttering job well 😛 . Being so blunt this is something impossible for me.

9. How to Whisper? You ll know about my voice and with that whispering, hmm it will anyway be no less than an announcement 😀 . And so do I never tell secrets to anybody in a crowded place 😛

10.  Celebrate Failures 😀 I didn’t know until someone told me that only guys celebrate and treat when they fail. Apart from celebrating the success I have always celebrated all my failures 😀 . Mostly alone and sometimes with friends but yes I love to celebrate my failures too.

Aah sometimes it feels so good to be  a sinner too :D.
