There are moments in life when you just want to scream Yahoo!!!! from the top of your lungs, when you are very happy, want to do things you haven’t done from a long-long time. Yesterday was one such moment for me, when I wanted to scream Yahoo!! And yes I did something which I haven’t done since years.

I went home with that Yahoo!! Mood. Suddenly I realized that my cook owns a bicycle and I haven’t had a ride on bicycle since 6-7 years at least. I have very fond memories of bicycle; I had explored my entire city on my bicycle and I also used to go to school on bicycle. Few of my friends live near my home and we all used to come back home together after school gets over in a group riding our bicycles. The first time I had chased any PYT (Pretty Young Thing) was also on my bicycle. I stopped riding bicycle when I came in 11th standard; it was when I got a scooter. After that I got so busy in life that I almost forgot the joy of riding a bicycle. I went to nasha’s home a few days, saw her bicycle back but couldn’t ride it as it was punctured. But yesterday I borrowed my cook’s bicycle and went out on a ride.

The area near my place was very crowded-the usual Bangalore traffic; but still I somehow I managed to ride it; I also did a few stunts that I used to do with my bicycle. One thing I realized; Bangalore is not for cycle riders; they are the most vulnerable, more than pedestrians, more than bike riders, more than anyone else. I don’t remember getting scared on road ever but yesterday on bicycle was something different. Still I enjoyed my half hour ride on bike, came back home had dinner and then had chocolate. (Those who don’t know me- my friends say I don’t need booze to get high, any chocolate would suffice) One of my friends (CB) had given me a big bar of dark chocolate which I had kept only to eat on some special occasion, so yesterday I enjoyed that chocolate. As if all this wasn’t enough, I also got a lunch invitation from one of my friends. And today I am going to corner house (another thing which gets me high) with my hogging partner and my module lead. Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers to all of us....

Yippee!!!! Today I have completed one year in office….I still very well remember the day I joined office. (My past experiences can be read here and here) It’s hard to believe that I had survived 1 year in this company. There had been incidences when I felt that I wouldn’t be staying here any more; but here I am, sitting in my cubicle, typing this post.

I was talking to Infinitics the other day and asked him what he did on completing his one year at office. He told me that all the people who had joined with him sat together and cried. Cried because it had been a year and they are still stuck with the same company and same job. Well it’s not that I am very much happy and satisfied with my company, my job; but as of now there are no regrets either. I am happy that my condition in my office is not like that of Dory. He is ultra bored in office, know very few people. This is just because his company is small and took only 3 freshers. He is confined only to his team, his motions have been circumscribed. I am glad it’s nothing like that in my office. (I apologize for mentioning about you Dory without your consent.)

Well if I look back, I must say things have turned up pretty well for me. Got very good friends (I mean really very-very good), very good teammates, very good boss!!!! (OK let’s not get into that.) All I can say is that my office is a fun place to be at. So till now things have been fine. Let’s see how it turns up in future. As of now, it’s celebration time….We have some plans for the day. We will be going out for lunch to mark the first anniversary of our job.

Laddu can't code saala....

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs,
and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.........


This month end I will be completing one year in office. It has been a nice experience working in this company, had lots of fun and above that made many good friends.

With the experience that I have gained in this 1 year I can say that this s/w engg. is one of the easiest profession; you just need to master the use of Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V; but its not for me.

The other day I was sitting in office, breaking my head into some dumb code, listening to some song when I came up with my own. It goes on something like this.

hai muscular,
hai popular.
spectacular, he's a bachelor
laddu ki gaadi tez hai, laddu kudiyon mein craze hai,
laddu ki aankhen dark black, laddu dikhta gol-matol hai,
fastrack ki ghadi haaton mein hai, perfume lomani waala,
but laddu can’t code saala........

papa kehte hai bada naam karega, mera laddu aisa kaam karega....
laddu ke paas hai BE, karta hai hills pe holiday,
hey hey ye hey,
laddu tabla bajata hai,
jaha jaata hai cha jaata hai
par laddu can’t code saala.......
laddu code nahi kar sakta.......
