Costly Things are costly to maintain!!!!

Hey Guys! Back with a post!!

Had less of work on Friday. Left the office early(By 7:45pm), and we headed home! Just stopped at the usual panipuri shop @ Church Street. We were having ma
sala puri when a call came from the office that there is a mob @ Shivajinagar, so avoid that! Wanna know the reason?? Saddam was hanged, and all the muslims here were arranging for a meet( Dunno why!!) Accidentally someone by mistake had torn one of the banner near Shivajinagar n this raised an issue among them! They started the fight throwing stones @ public n setting two wheelers ablaze! (Who knows why???). I was interested to go via the same route but Jagga refused.

So, we took a deviation @ Anil Kumble circle @ M G Road! Went via the Circle near by Meuseum Road, Minsk Square! He said that we'll go via Raj Bhavan, but i insisted we go via Indian Express! I just wanted what were they fighting for!! Just took a right turn near the Capitol Hotel n we headed to Indian Express! There were a lot of policemen controlling the condition! I saw no fight over there but an Auto with a banner in Urdu, Kannada n English! They said Saddam is a friend of India( I dont know how!) n they protest hanging Saddam! It was also hoisting a black flag! Now what can they do for something that has happened?? It is an irreversible process! I'm not taking sides by saying what Bush did was wrong or what these people are doing is right?? What will happen if they fight?? Its totally of no use!

We didnt experience any disturbance on our way back home! I came home at around 9, had my food,spoke with some friends (Bhandary, Praveen, Yogesh n Hemanth!). Walked a bit n set myself on bed! I was ready to message!

I sent some 300 messages and was feeling sleepy! Thought i'll sleep and went to bed at around 1am!

Woke up by 9:00 in the morning! Finished my daily duties and was set to read the newspaper having my breakfast! Just browzed thru the paper! I am not reading newspaper as i was reading while i was at college! Dont have that patience to read everything (Dont want to spend more time reading a newspaper on a weekend! Cant make time during the weekdays!) tried Sudoku for 10 minutes! It said its hard and so it was! I couldnt finish more than some 15 squares! Thought i'll finish it later!

Took a bath! Was just wiling away my time! I dont know! I waste time like this! Wont spend it more fruitfully!! thought i'll read something n took a book in my hand! Dint even read 3 lines n i closed it! It has become boring to do anything these days! Gotta come outa this! (Hope so soon!) I thought of messaging! Sent some 600 messages and amma called mefor lunch! Had my lunch and i went to the local BSNL customer care office located at Sahakaranagara! We had applied for a Broadband connectin way back in November and we still havent ot the service. Went for a walk to that office with appa! Long time i had walked withhim! Was very much happy for that! We spoke of general things n i like to do that!

These people at government office are so adamant n they said that you'll get the service by March! We are laying ports and that'll take time till march! You wont get it till then! I was frustrated but what can we do?? We just set back! Came outa that office and had watermelon(Kallangadi) juice at Ganesh Fruit Juice Centre just next to this office! Came back to home! I thought i'll meet my friends and informed them! I was at majestic by 4:40 and one one turned up!Raghu, Susheema were busy! Hemu said that we'll meet up but he dint come! Yogi also dint come!

Okay! I thought i've come to majestic! Lemme take things i thought of taking since two weeks! Went to Burma Bazaar ( next to old Hajee Jana, Near Tribhuvantheatre), applied a new cover to the screen my S700i! Went to Alankar Pearl plaza! Stopped at Mysore Times and asked for a new strap for my Titan Edge!

I was totally shocked to hear the price! The same belt (same color) was priced Rs.525/- only! I couldn't blieve it! I asked once more! He said its 525! "Isit for another watch??" i asked! He laughed! "Sir! You've taken such a costly watch and now you are asking as if you dont know anything!! I was seriously shocked!!! You can take atleast 3 watches at burma bazaar or Hongkong bazaar or say National Market!! What the heck! 525 for a strap of leather???? I said doyou have any other varieties for this watch?? He showed me two three designs none cheaper than 250! I said i havent got that much money! I thought it wouldcost some 50 bucks or so and came outa that showroom!

I headed for another titan showroom near Menaka Theatre! Asked over there as to how much would a strap for Edge would cost! The personnel over there showedme the same kinda strap and said that it would cost me 360 bucks! I was once again shocked for the price but check out the difference! 525 - 360!! I thought i'll visit some more showrooms and get it done where i get it cheap! I dint take a strap for that day. Went to market! Gotta get something for home! Purchased them1 Took a bus and landed @ Byat!

It was 8! had some snacks! watched TV for some time and had my lunch! went to bed @ 10 o clock! sent some 500 messages and was asleep!

A hilarious incident on December 25th

Hey all!

That mysore post is gettin delayed coz i haven't uploaded the pics yet! Meanwhile enjoy reading this post that happened to me on 22nd December 2006.

They were celebrating Christmas in our office (Though they dont celebrate Ugadi, Krishnashtami n other festivals), they were preparing for christmas like anything since a week, making arrangements for it! They planned to celebrate it on 22nd of December as we had a holiday on 25th.

Atlast December 22nd arrived n at around 5pm, a gang arrived to our floor singing hymns of christ (which i dint understand!!) singing Jingle bells n otha songs with a guitar! This went on for say 10 minutes n after that, one among them started saying something abt christ n his deeds for say 2 minutes! Cant recollect his words or else i wud have presented exactly the same! Finally he said "We are collecting money on this event! dont hesitate to donate! It'll fund an orphanage n you'll be helping many by donating!

I thought, i'll contribute! There was a Santa Claus in the midst! He was giving chocolates to all! With him was a female who was collecting money! Now comes the funniest part!

Me n Jagga were discussing how much to donate! Jagga hadn't bought any money that day as he had kept his purse @ home! I'll take mine everyday but unfortunately i just had a 500 rupee note! No 100s, 50s or even 10s except an old 20 rupee note which i hesitate to spend! Okay! I thought that let me donate 100 bucks from my account! Then Jagga came to me n explained his situation! We thought abt this n we decided that both of us together will donate 100 rupees! I'll put 500 in the box n get 400 back!

Meanwhile, Jagga had gone to one o my collegue n borrowed a 100 rupee note. Once the Santa Claus n the lady came to us, he had put that 100 bucks! Santa had given him two small chocolates!( Just like dairy -milk eclairs). I was confused!

I desperately needed change for 500! So i went to the lady n asked for change! Then she said tell me how much are you donating! Seeing 500 bucks in my hand, Santa had given me a big BAR-ONE (Really big in size, dunno the quantity!). Then suddenly Jagga came in between n said that the 100 rupee note he gave is from both of our side!

That lady got so frustrated that she went staring at me! She was totally angry at me n walked off my cubicle! Even the so called Santa was staring at me like anything behind the mask! I dint understand the situation! But once she left, I couldnt stop laughing analysing the situation! How mean of them!

Even now if i think of that incident, i just cant stop laughing! Hope this brought a smile on yo face!

Enjoy! Leaving for the day! Wait for the mysore post!

Wait for a post on My Mysore Trip!

Not goin for the New year bash!

Back after a long time!

Its really good to blog after such a long time. Have many things to write in mind but am boringly busy these days with my job. My weekly routine has been fixed! During weekdays, get up @ 8, get ready fo office, start @ 9, reach office @ 10, work out things here even if you dont understand a single thing here! Do some silly thing n make my PL angry, do some rubbish work, start for home @ 9-10, have food, go to sleep!

During the weekends, i'll have many ideas to implement though i dont plan, everything gets upside down! Thats why i wont plan anything! It just flies away! meet friends, hog like anything, enjoy n thats all! Life has becom boringly static for me! No change! Meanwhile, i forward message when i get time!

I'm blogging this freely today as my task is taking time n all my collegues have gone for the new year bash! Stupidity @ its best! Thought of blogging something but no ideas are hitting my brain!

Will blog something interesting soon! Catch up with you soon! ;-)

Staying back @ office for the second time!

Got some change requests from the client n i'm lazy as usual to complete!

Had to finish the thing within tomorrow afternoon(Dunno how! )

My PL asked me to stay back! I agreed (Dunno what was my mood at that point of time!) n was analysin what to do! As usual, i was not interested in what i was doing but cant help it!

Even my PL knows abt this! We had dinner @ some hotel ( not used to such things! Had it to give company to him! ). I tool curdrice n he took some parota ( crushed one! Kaat style). We discussed abt how i felt being in the team! I openly expressed n he knew my point! I dint hide anything. He said that though you are not interested, you've gotta do the assigned work coz you are paid for it! You are one year expreienced now n cant ask doubts like a fresher! You should be in a position to guide freshers!

I said " I know! Problem lies in me! I was lazy in doing things! I concentrated only on my tasks n dint explore much on the whole project for which i'm now struggling to get a clear picture of the whole."

Striving to get that!

Meanwhile, we returned back n i again started thing i knew dint work! Streched myself till 1 n got a reason to report! He gave a solution n that took long! He said we'll wind up for today n continue tomorrow! Gotta get up by 6:30 n go home! Take a bath n come back with Jagga! Dunno whether i'll be able to do that! Its 1:20 at this instant!

Will check blog abt what happens tomorrow soon!

Good night forthose who are seeing it now n good morning for the wakers!
