Midnight Ramblings 4 - Turning a Cat into a Lion


In this article I am going to tell you the tricks to turn a little cat into a mighty lion.Keep reading.  I have one question in my mind that is bothering me since long.How come my boss is so talented in optimizing the output and increasing the productivity.He offcourse is a master in 6 Sigma but sometimes I ponder how?? .So one day in my PRD during the  Appraisals  he asked me about Process improvement.It went for around 2 hours.Process.Process Oh no Process!!.Common its actually weird and an absurd question to ask a newly joined fresher to ask his contribution towards the process improvement.It is like asking a Class 1 kid to solve Langrage's theorem.Well forget class 1 kid...I myself failed to solve this during my campus interview at Accenture.The outcome of that interview was quite disappointing.So without any wait ,I went on blabbering.Common you need to highlight your positives during an appraisal interview and no matter what its  your boss who  knows you well.After all he is the one who would be rating you and would be  giving  you an appropriate hike.

So I am a Cat.By Cat ,I mean that I am a cat in this IT field  and a fresher who is struggling for a good opportunity.Asking a Cat to roar like a Lion is complete foolishness.Because everyone knows that it won't happen.Infact the Lion would die of heartache when it comes  to know that some one is actually persuading a cat to  roar like a lion.But a boss has this ability to turn a cat into a lion and ultimately the cat works and the already transformed Lions would be lazy enough.Everyone says harsh and rude things about their respective bosses.Bosses are one kind of Sinisters.My boss is no different.He belongs to this breed who believes in constantly torturing their valuable resources.So Obviously I won't tell you how to turn a cat into a Lion because only my boss knows that.Hahaha...I'm already flummoxed and I don't have enough strength to work more..I am already having fun at office as these days I'm not up till 5 am at office .Sometimes I feel I am at the end of my tether. Weird..Well What do you think ?All that you get by doing hard work is zilch.Have fun..

Shine

Shine
"I’m sorry boy. Leave me alone. I’m getting married to someone."
“What about that night where the twinkle on your eyes and the shine on your face mesmerized me and we made love.” He said.
“That’s just another  night, forget it.”
“You will be only mine," He pressed the button and it was blood all around.

Follow me!!


So Facebook asks "Whats on your mind?" and Twitter asks "Whats happening?". Social media is trying to be a boon to some people but for some its just waste of precious time.So tell me how many of you spend some quality time on internet. The good old days of internet has vanished where people used to come online seldom as the cafe would charge 40 bucks for 1 hour and only richmen could provide such facility to their children.But that was some 5 years ago.Considering today's scenario one can say that  even a common man can afford internet.You get internet on your mobile and there are twitter and facebook which are compatible and optimized for  mobile users. These days I see that lots of celebrities are  showing active interest in Twitter.I admit Twitter is fun. But its sometimes cool to read those tweets. Amitabh Bachhan who is a legendary actor tweets about Rajnikanth who is another Superstar in South India.The Anna Hazare anti corruption campaign proved successful and enormous support was gathered through this social media. Sachin Tendulkar is now India's Twitter king as he has more than 10 million followers. I take this opportunity to wish master a very happy birthday .Happy birthday Sachin "GOD" Tendulkar.

So by writing whats happening and whats on your mind ,don't you feel that you are exposing your real life to the virtual world. Now a days popularity is measured on the basis of the followers you have on these social media's.God Damn I have some 275 followers in Twitter and 330 in blogger ,so does it means I am not popular?.Well this is not the case.So whats all this fuss about Follow me!!.
There used to be a time when two friends  who meet after a long period of time would say
"hey add me in Orkut!" Forget Orkut,its dead now.
It was soon replaced by "Hey,Are you in Facebook? then add me!!" .

Facebook these days represents our virtual world .It indicates our virtual  reality.How virtual are we? Facebook says I am 80% virtual. How I get it is based on some stupid ,absurd application which claims to measure your virtual quotient. So the one thing which is popular now is this.

"ok Follow me on Twitter ,Ok?" 
How easy is life? Just click on follow and you get the updates from your friends in form of Tweets.

A Girl asks her boyfriend to follow her.This boyfriend of hers is not techsavy unlike her.So he thinks his job is to follow her anywhere and everywhere she goes. So there she goes to the washroom and she is shocked to see her boyfriend in the Ladies washroom.

"Hey ,what the fuck are you doing here ?" she says
"you just asked me to follow you,so I'm following you," he replies.
"Idiot,Following me doesn't ,means that you follow me everywhere.I asked you to follow me on Twitter," she gets vexed for once and throws him out of the washroom.



Creepy Ehhh!!

Nevermind  and hey I forgot to tell you that you can Follow me too ;) My Twitter handle is @Crazy_geniusS

So now I hope you won't be knocking my door to follow me. :P .Take care and have fun and you can follow me on my blog if you like my writings. I am planning to write a short story after a long time.
God bless and hope to be back with sometimes and I take this opportunity to welcome my new readers.

Midnight Ramblings 2 - Arrival of the Lost friend



Once upon a time ,we were counted as one  best friends by people around us. They would often envy about our friendship.Some would rate us as the true pillars of friendship. Apparently there has been phases in my life where I've lost many good friends but I have also got the same number of good friends. But those who have left me have just left me without any reason or leaving a note.It hurts you when such things happen. Today I happen to talk to one such friend whom I lost 3 years ago.For someone who used to be an asset to me.Someone  who just emphasized what best friend means. Initially we used to talk a lot during our initial  days of friendship.


She is offcourse my online found.But you might not know when your virtual friends turn out to be a bliss for you.I accidentally happened to dial her number and trust me she did pick up the call thus bring a big smile on my face. She was like bewildered when I tried to scare her by disguising my identity. We happen to talk for just 9 minutes.Phone calls to Islamabad are costly and last time I called her was 2 years ago to wish her happy birthday on 19th September. Great people make great friends and here by I announce my greatness in blogworld LOL.She is the one from whom I learned the principles of life. She took a break from online world just because to focuss more on her life as she believed that too much of internet is hazardous . But nevertheless I'm so excited that my friend from Pakistan has showed marginal signs of her arrival and my happiness has no bounds now.yippie!! I'm all excited. I'm posting like crazy since the last few days . I will surely try to post on some good topics .I've got a good story theme on my mind ,just planning to write it down.
Well people say that happiness comes in packages...true but once it comes then it never ceases to expire. Friends play a cameo in your life.Just try and keep them happ.Don't expect too much in life.Be happy with what you have.
All's well that ends well.. so Green gonna meet Blue very soon .....<3 <3 <3
And here I present my little sweetu Bren who is my 7 month old Nephew...

Isn't he CUTE???
See you soon ...till then Allah Hafeez,Shubh Ratri,Vannakam ....Love you

Midnight Ramblings



Its already 1 am here and I am  not feeling sleepy.Unfortunately I couldn't execute my "Mission BedBug" plan today because of the unexpected showers. Bugs, you-would-be-killed-one-day .Thankfully Delhi won its first IPL game after 4 matches and Yuvi's hits couldn't surpass Delhi. Ok ,the reason for this post is weird.It might make you wonder and ponder but nevertheless I am not feeling sleepy and that is the reason for this post. I wish I could get drunk but apparently I won't unless and until there is a party at my office.

As you all might be knowing that the weaker side of Ste is his charm. He has got this special ability to make friends and that too female. Not bragging for obvious reasons but it happens right. I have this badluck associated with everything I do. I get my first allocation and I have to relocate myself to Noida.I get to travel in a firstclass AC train to Mumbai and you give a bewildered reaction when you see a  66 year old Aunty sitting next to you.Such things do keep happening in my life.Why is that everything I touch turns into Stone. Once upon a time there used to be days when I used to have a  Midas touch.I am admitting that I am  a bad flirt and infact I have this instinct ...blame my starshine.Yes ,I am a Sagitarian which makes me an official flirt. But too much of flirting is bad but may be I should realize that. I prefer being a good friend rather than being a bad flirt. I  know that I'm flirting only when a girl points that to me. Its that Sagi's don't realize that they are actually flirting until someone says "Dude ,stop flirting! " LOL...Shhh My Lips are sealed now.Apparently, I take no chance in hitting on any girl .Infact I do try my best to impress the person. But it never happens . Here are the possible scenarious that happen to the girls with  whom I flirt with.

1)Marriage
Its disheartening when your girlfriend turns up to you one day and says that "Dude,its over I'm getting married" . It obviously gives a big shock to you  .You might feel like the end of the world .You think for a moment.Eventually you plan to analyze the things about what went right and what went wrong and why it didn't happen for you. Then you make a wise decision and go to the bar.One full Kingfisher large is enough to clear off her thoughts and wow thats it. You move on.

2) Engaged.
"Dude,I'm engaged to Mr.X and most probably we would be getting married later this year" .This would hurt you a lot.Well no guy would wish that his girl would be engaged to someone other than him.You spend a lot for a girl only to listen these not-so-cool words from her. Common its part and parcel of life..So life is all about moving on. So next please!!

3)Best friend.
This is actually that phase of your friendship where your friend fails to recognise you. You might think of her as your girlfriend ,but its not necessary that she would be having the same feeling. She might call you up at late nights.She will gossip about your mutual friends and college professors and talk something cool.She would always behave like your girlfriend,but one day she would call you as her best friend and the worst thing is yet to come.You would propose her and  she would say that "best friends don't fall in love" .Holy shit.Who said that best friends can't fall in love? Thats the time you realize that you should have thought several times before befriending her.Go to hell my dear best friend !!

4)Brother.
She would call you for tea,lunch and dinner.You will obviously brag and boast in front of your associates saying that you are this hot chick's soon-to-be-boyfriend.She might drop an atom bomb soon on you saying that she was just treating you as her elder brother.You might feel shattered and disheartened.But the worst thing is "Why Elder brother?? why not younger one ? " :P 
There is one girl who often calls me as Chottu which refers to little brother in India .But that doesn't means that I would call her DEE(sister) and it also doesn't means that I'm a BC for that matter :P

Such small things happens in life.So , I do firmly believe that there is that Mr Right or Princess somewhere waiting for you.They would  make your life blissful and fill it with joy and support you throughout. Its they who would be an essential entity of our life. But be patient. Lol

Buddy one more time & you will be Squeezed!

Its been long since I last saw you.You have always dreamn't and pledged to harass  and torture me. You suck the blood out of me and everyday you never cease to  test my patience. Every night when I yearn to compensate for my lost sleep ,you meet me. I wish to sleep peacefully ,but you have never let me. Today I have a desire that needs to be fulfilled by you. I warn you and this perhaps would be the last warning for you. I will break you into peices. Trust me ,I have excelled this art of breaking people's heart. Its not been since long when I made someone cry and you better count your days.May be  you always wait for me everyday to sleep on my bed so that you could play with me while I was asleep. Now this is the last warning and I will do it.

Buddy one more time and you will be squeezed . You bloody bed bug. So finally I have got time to get rid of these insects. So tommorow it will be a Jallianwala baug massacre on my bed for these little bed bugs which gorges on my blood.

Wish me luck guys. :D :D I plan to do an Hitler act to these Bugs tommorow..

Shut Up!



 
Words were just words before meeting you,
You made me realize the worth of my words after meeting you,
But today you asked me to Shut Up,
Now,I promise I won't utter a word  ever again


 You know this is for you. You are my newly found friend.You  resemble the kid in me.I will miss you when I get busy from next week :)

Thursday, April 07, 2011

Found myself!

She loves me..She loves me not.Definitely she loves me not.Nevertheless the number of days ,the amount of time I missed her is invaluable.The moments I shared with her were just pricesless although I've spoken to her just  for a while. She plays a cameo role in my life for some obvious reasons. You  get to meet someone during your training days in your  company ,you try to impress her but fail drastically in the process. And that is time when you try to derive something out of your past experience. Never  imagined that I would ever  talk to her again after moving to New Delhi but I do talk to her these days.



You may call her my spine for her support in those wonderful days . For someone who treated me as a best comrade,a priceless chivalrous knight  who is always there for her as a wonderful friend.Different people  have different roles in your life but the amount of impact the person creates is something that has to be watched. My early days in the capital city was  miserable.  During those  days  I realized that tears are something which are beyond emotions . Tears and emotions are uncontrollable and the amount of pain and those struggles would not suffice. You may look back at those  moments in your life and might wonder if life was different. Not everyones life is blissful,but it doesn't makes sense that you have achieved everything in life without any drawbacks.During those cribbing days of my life, I realized the worth of family and best friends. That was the time when transistion took place, maturity level grew up and responsiblity seem to be showing signs and the final product was a software Engineer. For one first priority has always been his family and love and for me it was the same. My parents asked me to give up if I didn't want to stay. But that was the time when judging the right and the wrong became difficult. I imagined myself in a state of dilemma,an illusion,struggle etc. I'd even pack my bags for my home journey, but didn't had the strength to compromise with my life. I would drench my bed with tears like  feeble and would refuse to talk to my loved ones for I didn't had the courage to see tears from their eyes . She may not have been with me for a long period of time,but she made me realize the worth of life.

There are somethings in life which play an important role. Family,Friends,Money,Career,Happiness and so are the other key pillars of life which are significant in our life. I would talk to her all night and crib about  my state of mind. I was caught in  a fix with life. She would  advise me  about the good and the bad and the right and the wrong. This made me stronger and I would definitely thank her for the same. Without her I would be feeble spineless person and thanks a lot for this best friend.
I would thank almighty for bestowing this priceless gift upon me. She was a messenger for me,an angel of God who gives strong messages and conveys it through her. Now I am happily living in NDelhi with lots of friends. Pune and Mumbai friends seems to be replaced by Noida and Delhi friends. But all that I want to say is that I would count my Delhi days as one of my best days of my life. Trust me these words are coming straight from my heart.I will tell you that I've found myself
Love you for this :)

For her...

She is a part of one's life and she serves different roles in an individuals life. She is somebody’s daughter,mother,sister,wife and so on. She has many different roles to play in her life. She easily  fulfills all the roles that she is put into. As a mother she takes care of her kids.As a sister ,she guides her siblings and parents in the household work. As a wife ,she performs daily household chores. As a teacher ,she imbues knowledge into her student. Life is a playground for her and she assumes the role of different actress in this movie of life.
 

This post ,I dedicate to the females out here. This goes to the moms,sisters,teachers,girlfriends,female colleagues  and every female out here in blog world. A woman has an important role in a men’s life. She nurtures him since the first minute of his life. She cares for him in form of being a good guardian and monitors him.A mother takes 20 years to make a men out of her boy and it takes just 20 minutes for another woman to make a fool out of him. Such is the impact of life in modern era. It takes  long time to make name and gem of a character but it hardly takes a minute to ruin the good work and the  appreciations. Mother is like the nucleus in an atom. She is like the sun which provides us with light and a source of energy. Maa,as we may call her is someone who is our support structure. For ages I have drenched my pillows with tears missing my mother. I wish she sat next to me and gave me some courageous words. Never mess with a your mother  ,she watches you and knows each minute details about you. This post comes as a dedication to  Woman’s day last month. Sister is like your spine. You never know her worth until she moves away to her husband’s place. That is the day when  you emotionally feel her absence. She is naughty at  times and fights with you everyday and night and makes you know that you have someone who constantly remembers you.
 
Sister makes  you feel that you are not alone in this world and she is always there for you to encourage and motivate you in your hardtimes. Woman have this important role in every men’s life. She should be respected and honored in every aspect of life. Look at her with pride and treat them equally.
Honour every woman you meet in your life. You might not know the worth of each one of them. Never be harsh to your wife. Support her in the good deeds.Teach manners and great values to your daughters. Respect and educate them. Throughout my life I have come across many such females and I have many female rolemodels. I am not attached to my Momma a lot but I can say that she is the best mother one would ever get. I won't say that my sister is the prettiest girl on Earth ,but she is an angel to us. There are little things in life that matters the most.These are the things which  differentiates us. Finally before   winding up ,I dedicate these wonderful lines for my very good friend whom I admire. For some silly cute Idiot friend of mine  who is very kind and yeah she is a woman too.  :)

"Little things you do for me and nobody else makes me feel Good..that's why  I like to sit next to you and share  my mad stories which I know that are not true"

PPS: I'm not promoting Vodafone :P but i do use a Vodafone though

This goes to all females out here.... \m/

Bleeding Blue(s)...

So the World Cup has finally come to an end .How many of you really supported  India to win this cup? .I was actually having India as one of my favourite and Srilanka as my other favourite.Luckily both the teams made into the finals and we won the Cup that counts. So during this period of time there were few interesting ads which came into picture. Lots of creative and innovate sides of ad makers were observed in this 2 months.Well Zozoos were same old but it kinda resembled me of Rajnikant stunts and a kind of gimmick. But the pepsi ads were awesome to be honest. Apart from Dhoni's helicopter shot,Sehwags upar cut,Bhajji's doosra ,Malinga's slinga,KP's palti shot and Dilshan's scoop shot ,they also used ICC elite  umpire for their ad.Billy Bowden was simply amazing.Out of the go ,I love Dilshan's dil scop.It actually used to bring smiles on my face whenever they played that ad on the TV.For obvious reasons ,I would be liking it for the girl and not Dilshan because she was pretty gorgeous and beautiful with the "hay mera pallu hay " lines :D

 So lots of ideas explored as things progressed into the knockout stages.Nike came up with this bleed blue campaign and it was supported by large number of people and I would see people placing a bleed blue button on their facebook display photos. Why not? Obviously everyone was rooting for India to win. Finally on April 2 ,India beat the lankans  by 6 wickets. At one time ,after the departure of Sachin and Sehwag,the match got uncertain since Srilanka was not a bad team at all and Malinga was simple amazing through out the tournament(reminding you of his 6 wickets against Kenya ). Finally the GOD  Sachin got his dreams fulfilled as he lifted the world cup which was his 21 yrs dream to win a world cup for India. Lots of inspiring comments were made by cricketers and they dedicated this WC to the senior pro.Indian media which is just like a sleeping lion would wait for the right time and broadcast all their creative news.Check this out ...


Well we can't fail to talk about the might of our captain MSD,he is such a sweetheart who dared to win the WC with a sixer without thinking that after Raina our bowlers would be padded up to bat. At some point, the match looked evenly balanced. The momentum was towards the lankans and that was the time when they  showed Rajni and Amir Khan together. SMS'es started flowing in forms of Rajni jokes. So ,the crowds went Crazy and counted that Rajni's presence is itself enough to kick Lankan asses.Weird ,no ..  I know but helpless lols.Ultimately ,by bleeding blue we went berserk but by winning the world cup some group of people really became rich.They are being given One crores each,some are given doctorate honours and high prestigious awards,luxury cars,individual houses,free train travels for lifetime and so on. WOW! some times I would rather think of changing my profession to a cricketer from an Engineer. #crazy

Comingback to the bleed blue thingy,...so do you think the other teams should have promoted this idea of Bleeding blue as per their jersey color. Like Aussies would say Bleed yellow ,Kiwi's bleed black,Pakis  bleed green and so on.. At the finals ,it was a state of tragedy as everyone started bleeding blue. SriLankans are blue too ...confused :S lol nevermind finally we won..the world cup is ours..
So leaving Malings's picture before and after world cup..trust me this is a pretty famous one these days :D :D  Actually ,I got many things in mind but ...... lol let it be...and keep bleeding blue ...:D :D one day you will run out of blood and no one would donate you blue blood :P


Did'nt re read it ...so my apologies for any typos or grammatical errors :D :D :D
