Happy new year 2010

Hi All,

Finally we have arrived at the dawn of last day the year 2009. I am sitting in my office internet cafe and trying to think what I should write on the last day eve of 2009. Well, there is so much to say...2009 has shown so many colors of the play called life. 2009 has shown a very nice turn in my carreer and I thank that one power(ppl call it Bhagvan, Ishwar, Alla or God) that enabled me to end the 2009 on a good note.

May you all experience the shower of happiness...
May the spring come soon and melt the snow from everyone's life....
May you all achieve great hights in 2010....
May god give you the power of forgiveness (if you don't have)
May you all enjoy the whole year with your family and friends..
May god give you insights to find out what you like…
May god give you strengths to follow your own path…

Happy new year my dear friends. Promise yourself to bring happiness to this world.
Keep spreading love…Keep spreading harmony…Keep spreading joy…

Merry Xmas..

Well, this is the third Saturday when I am in the office. 6 days working sucks but I am happy with my morning shift..what you say!!!

Merry Xmas to all of you…I know this one has come a day after Christmas but its better to be late than never. Xmas morning was quite boring but interesting. I was at the Suzuki Showroom to receive our new scooterate Suzuki Access 125. It took me 3 hours and I literally told them that I was not going to leave without bike and they had to deliver it at last.

We planned to spend the Xmas evening watching 3 Idiots, however the plan could not execute as the show was houseful everywhere. So I spent the evening in 2 halve. The first half of the evening was spent with a good friend ‘Punnu’ and ‘Mush’ with a dinner in Red Chilly. We enjoyed a lot. The second half was spent with my little bro ‘Saurabh’ when we sipped coffee at FC Road. I noticed my brother was really happy after the first biggest purchase of his life. We came back home at 12:30, and I took out my books to study but as usual I preferred sleeping instead going through those boring notes and books.

I wrote a poem last week when I was sitting at Chaitanya at FC Road. It was about her and I also have no clue who this ‘she’ is. It was just an imagination so don’t take it otherwise. The frequency of writing poems had been decreased now and came down to 2 poems per week from 1-2 poems a day. Well, this was natural as now there are fewer sources to motivate me for writing a poem.

Here’s the romantic one:

I found her too beautiful to define her beauty in words,
I kept looking at sky, my eyes looking at the birds;

Then I took her hand in my hand our lips locked together,

I could listen nothing but could hear only birds’ chatter;

I was numb for sometime she smelled like heaven,
I had a thought of proposing her right then finally taking it as an Omen;

Love is beautiful, it is unconditional, does not have any age,
People become happy after finding their love and forget all their rage.

17 December 2009...

Someone has rightly said, “God could not be everywhere and that’s why he has created Mom”. Yesterday I reached home at 8:00 pm and I found it as expected. My dear lazy brother did not clean the home as promised and I will also not do that until he cleans it once. But as usual, I will clean it if he does not and I also know that he will not and I will have to do it on Sunday. Enough of confusion, after reaching home I found myself reluctant to study. Exams are close and I am not able to convince myself to study at least an hour a day. After reaching home I learned that I was free for next 45 minutes as mess timing was 8:45. I thought of studying but could not. My hands reached the power switch to turn on Computer; however they picked up a book either. Don’t stretch your eyes with surprise because it is obviously not a course book but ‘that kiss in the rain’ a novel by a young writer.

After dinner I felt an urge to talk to someone. Being single is a blessing by itself but sometimes it sucks and I was feeling the same that day. I literally went through the entire address book in my mobile phone and finally dialed mom. I spoke with Mom about lot of things and after a long time we talked for about an hour. We talked about my marriage most of the time and my Mom was interested to know my salary so that she can reveal the same details to my prospective parents-in-laws. It was a nice conversation after a long time and I felt great.

After talking to my Mom I again lost into my thoughts. Certain faces went through my mind and gave me pictures of the old days. Those pictures in my mind off course include all my old girlfriends. I was forced by my mind to miss those days when I used to get irritated if I get to see any number flashing on my cell phone. I used to get so many calls in a single day that I was forced to spend 10% of the time in a day on phone. And now if I look at the list of calls in my cell phone menu, the last call I received was today at 11:28 am and it was a call from my brother. One of my friends Komal called me yesterday at 4:30 pm to enquire about a book…..huhhh, the famous dude Hemant Arora has now turned into a book counselor. Life shows us too many stages and sometimes one stage can be called an antonym of the other.

Let me end this post by saying few lines about the word which sounds so familiar even to a new born creature. 99% of the babies tend to speak this word and this is the first word in their vocabulary. This word does not have any religion or cast. This word does not belong to any community. One of the most powerful word in this artificial word – “Mom” :

She is the one, who can do anything for you;
She will feed you even if she is starving.
She is the one, who carries you for 9 months;
She will not sleep unless she makes sure that you are sleeping.

She is the one, who keeps crying when you fail your exams;
She will prepare sweets whenever you leave home for a long trip.
She writes the letters even if none of them is answered;
She is the only one who becomes restless when you don’t call at the given time.

No one can take her place; her love for you is unconditional;
She does not follow you just because your pockets are hefty.
Her prayers list always includes what you desire;
Can there be any word more affectionate then ‘Mom’?

Learning of the day: 16 Dec 09

Dear readers, I am in conversation with a magazine and they would surely have a look at my blog before giving me a ‘go ahead’ with my article. I request you guys to give some comments or just tick on one of the option as you like it (After struggling technically I had made some box available interesting, cool etc so that you can tick anyone of them). May be some day I would be able to publish my own book because of your blessings. Thanks a lot for your love. Please distribute this among your friends so that I can have few more comments to impress the editor of the magazine.

Learning of the day:

Some people are always frustrated with their lives, and we get to meet these people very frequently. These are the bad mates in the office; you feel the negative energy when you are around them. They complain a lot and also want you to listen to them. Let me warn you not to be the source where they can take their frustration out.

As I said, every good thing comes with its own consequences, I also found some people in vicinity in my new office which can be a source of negative energy. Initially I found them interesting however as I spent some more time with them, I came to know that they suck. And this is not my individual opinion but it’s a common opinion across the floor about these people.

So the conclusion is that we need to keep a distance from these people, as they belong to none but themselves. You never know when they prove to be harmful to you. I came across with such instance today and would never try to proactively talk to such people, rather I shall let them come to me for help and then play accordingly when ball is in my court.

My new office is cool. The office is only 5 kms away from my home and I use my bike to go to the office. There’s not much work as such so sometimes it’s easy to steal some time from office working hours and write my blog. Unfortunately I don’t have access to gmail, orkut, facebook etc websites. These websites play a very critical role in the balance sheets of Big IT giants. I am sure most of the employees (including me) in big IT companies spend 25% of the working time on these social networking websites and the best thing is that we call these websites stress busters. Just imagine if 10000 employees of an IT companies spend only 30 minutes on these social networking websites, they are responsible for the loss of the revenue which might have come from those 300000 minutes or 50000 Hours. Well I was just trying to think like an employer however this is the best way to compensate if you think you are less paid (and who does think that he is overpaidJ).

So I just came back from break and one more person has complemented me saying that I look like 28 or something. Now who will not get irritated after being complemented as overage? I am desperately looking for someone who can suggest me some tips so that I can start looking underage or at least 25 which is my current age. Being heard overage is as bad as if someone just commented on your new car as a second hand. It is like if someone had compared your latest girlfriend with some Aunti.

Monday I saw the new sun rising from the east

So next day I was in the office for the interview in time. I was looking forward to the meeting with Senior Managers. Numerolgy was in my mind but the first question was how I would make the first impression lasting enough to sell myself. The senior manager was a Punjabi gentleman, his face was shining and he seems to be having a lot of experience. The interaction was really different then the previous two rounds.

We talked about Training, Operations, Goals and ambitions etc. I actually recited a poem in the interview. I got a positive feedback from Mr. Senior Manager and next day I finally got to know that I did crack the interview. At the same time I cracked one more interview in the other company that increased my confidence more.

Right now I am sitting in one of my favourite internet cafe. I just finished Two States and it seems to be one more awesome work by Mr. Bhagat. I also wrote a poem on one of the incident from this book and offcourse I am going to post it right away:

Monday I saw the new sun rising from the east;
I am still feeling the words said by that priest.
The whole burden of sorrows was off my head;
1st time after a long time I spring up with a smile from my bed.

It was a dream which was the cause of my happiness;
The old man came to me and asked for the reason of my wretchedness.
The old man was wearing white clothes with a balding head;
I felt the energy when he put his hand on my head.

He advised me to understand the true meaning of ‘forgiveness’;
How easy it is to take off the load from the head and feel burden less.
I exactly did the same and hugged my father in my dream;
I realized it was so easy to forgive than cursing.
