Home Coming

Sun peeps into the window as I wake up after a peaceful, beautiful sleep I had since ages (considering it takes Sun a lot more time to peep in among the high rises around & it is well past 10 am :P ) & a look outta the window finds me noticing another of those new construct rising up which was supposedly not there the last time & I find mum announcing a yummy breakfast already awaiting me as I smell heaven around & I know the day has already started as sis starts pestering about that promised movie trip & so do all the discussions ranging from my newly learnt recipe & how I need to unlearn it, new year resolutions, shopping talks & plans & plans :)

Nothing beats Home Coming !

Gracias a la Vida

Open the gate & kick it out.That is what is done every year in December when finally it is Sis's B day (which happens to be today) & it is time for Mommy-made Yummy Cake [& am not home !! :( ] & time for new hopes & resolutions for just another year.

But this year it is different.2009 was my wish list all summed up (almost) & hence the reason to cling to it like that bug in my code, as I wonder if 2010 is gonna compensate for the goodies bestowed or show me that life is it..the way you rock it! Whatever it be, it was a fairy tale year as many-a-long waits comes to an end, & new chapters begin with wonderful new colours (with all their bright & light shades to add).As this turns so like a farewell speech now, let this FB application just sum it up as the countdown for this highly awaited Winter break is just about to end !

Office Diary

The system clock displayed 4:59 PM.It is already turning dark outside & still 1 hour to go back.Checked my Gmail inbox, the mail count didn't seem to increase much today,confirming a boring day.The office inbox as usual active(unwanted & undoubtedly making the day boring).Pagalguy still full of discussions about everything & anything from online to paper-based CAT,useful & useless arguments & blah-blah which maketh me glued to it,as I find myself minimizing & restoring the application window & codes running at the background,& a nearby group loud enough to bring me back occasionally to my workplace(okay..the word is some real discussion as I found everyone around busy & actually working & not pretending).

& I just realize, November just disappeared(even in the blog) as I complete 3 months in this now not new city but then hardly there is a thing which has changed..of course apart from the fact that my observations of the Bengalis has increased drastically & dramatically(to add).In the last few months I have recalled almost all the Bengalis I have encountered previously,right from the 5th class sweet Roy crush in Mumbai,a class teacher in school at Indore,the neighbour Ghosh uncle back home,not forgetting all my Bengali friends in college & of course, the famous Saurav Ganguly.I have found & seen all of their 'Look-alikes' here at kolkata, at office to be more precise (how else do you expect me to pass time at work).The experiments with cooking which had taken a halt, excuse being the CAT prep is back as it seems a better considerable option,after looking at my this year's CAT performance(more importantly comparing it with last year !) & so have my experiments with the street food outside office,specially inspired by the scene of my Manager enjoying the Pakoras at the jalebi stall..the last thing to be found outside the MNC buildings :

1. The 1st para..I wrote in office & the 2nd my room, listening to Sweet Child of mine & hence the difference & an end with no conclusion, if you could manage !
2.While having a usual mid-office stroll outside office,with a friend after our jalebi session ~
Me:Why do they have so many Ambassadors here in Kolkata?
Spandy(a friend):Hmm..May be coz it is backward.
Me:Ah..they have fiats in Mumbai..the old Mumbai Royal know.
No doubt britishers landed the wrong side & I talk about poor me !
