Long lasting impression

Hello . . .I’m back to share something that I relish a lot…

Most Chweetest n Cutest member of my Family. Yah ! Apart from me, my Kittie PUFFY also entered to the Family on the same day :D He used to complain to my Dad whenever we scold him for its mischief. His presence had made a very strong Bonding with our Family. Not only to our Family, it gained its special place in the Hearts of our neighbours. He enjoyed everyone’s hospitality. He was the street Romeo cum Rowdy. 

He was very special to us because when my Dad left us forever physically, this Kittie supported my us and espcially mom. He was the reason to bring back the lost smile on my mom’s face. He is not with us but his presence is always felt even now. 

Here’s my kittie…Sleeping ;)

111 222 333 444

Dat’s his 3rd B’day photo. He was a good caretaker too. He used to take a month kitten along with him for roaming and bring the kittie back home safely. That kittie went missing after few days…and never returned. We searched a lot…Even PUFFY went in search of the kittie but we could trace that kittie. We could feel his restlessness too.

Puffy’s favorite pass-time activities:

  • Sleeping on a Bed like a Royal Cat :D
  • Peeping thro’ the gate-grill and make sounds to irritate the Dogs whenever they passby. Then hide behind us if the Dogs come for attack by any chance :mrgreen:

Challenges in Life . . .

Big gathering of Friends comes with Loads of talks…fun…laughter.

Listening to each other’s problems makes each one of us feel that every Role has its problem. (Mainly I’m concentrating on IT Frnz) :D

Be it a Tester or a Developer  !!!

Once I happened to be a part of the conversation of a Tester and a Developer. I understood that Life becomes pathetic when there is no rapport between these two teams. I really pitied them.

They are very good friends. But unfortunately both of them were allocated in two different teams(Testing n Development).

The Developer wrote the code and promoted it to UAT for testing. The Tester started testing.  Tester found a problem with the code and raised the Defect. They argued a lot when the defect was raised. Both were right from individual’s perspectives.

Below is a pictorial representations of this. 😀

Left: Tester     |      Right: Developer

A frustrated DEVELOPER simply rejects the Defect.

Left: Tester     |      Right: Developer

There’s a famous dialogue of this DEVELOPER friend “You don’t know the potential of a Developer”.

This irritated TESTER much more and raised defects again.

Finally they ended up with a Big war by the time the implementation of code was done in production. :(

This conversation always makes me laugh a lot whenever I think of the Day I witnessed this Conversation. 

But I am very happy that they leave Office tensions in Office as soon as they step out of Office. Again in real Life…they are pretty good friends. ;)

Unexpected Answers – Block your Mind

Ragging – what comes to your mind hearing this?

Who will forget such moments in College Life? yeah..not even me

My journey into my new assignment had just started. Very soon, I started taking responsibilities in the team. My role was to be a Buddy to the new Associates joining the project.

Enjoyed that role a lot. Crazy thoughts came into the mind for a casual ragging for the new Associates bcoz I was senior most in that Role. ;)

Thought to share a Funny experience that happened during that phase here.

One fine day, a new Associate, Jessie joined my team. As usual I had to explain everything to that Lady. Days passed by…she used to talk well to me. Then…something striked my Mind…how bout Ragging !!! Let me give a Try ;)

Prati : Hey Jessie…How are you doing?

Jessie : Yeah…am doing good. So how is your work on?

Prati : Not much of work as KT phase has not yet started here.

Jessie : Oh cool…so how long you have been with this organization?

Prati : It’s going to be 2 years now. (mindthought-“is she trying to rag me? It was supposed to be me to do it right !!! :S “ 

so how bout you? Where have you worked earlier?

Jessie : I had been at onsite these many years. Jus returned to India.

Prati: (Ahhh !!! onsite candidate. Lemme put her in tension now) You need to take many Certifications here…in a month. She was tensed a little. I enjoyed that moment. :D

So how much experience you have in IT field?

Jessie : 12…

Prati : (myself in a little puzzled state) hey…am asking about work experience

Jessie : Hmmm…am also talking about the WORK experience only.

Prati : (shocked with the answer I received from her) Do you mean to say that you have been working from past 12 years in IT.

Jessie : Yes of course…do you doubt me?

Prati : (mindthought-Oooopss !!! BAD TIME started…I was trying to rag a Manager)

In Life, sometimes unexpected things happen and block your mind. Be Sure…you don’t get into Trouble like me. :(

Later she became a very good well-wisher of mine. Jessie was very simple lady who looked just like a Fresher out of College. Learnt a lesson that ‘Never get deceived by looking at the personality.’ Just a very narrow escape of mine by getting into a bigger trouble. Before your mind asks you to do some stupid things, think about it twice or thrice.

Ambigram: a tribute to beloved ‘Kalam’

15th Oct is the birthday of my favorite Teacher cum People’s President, Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, whose Powerful teachings have made a very strong impression in my mind to look deeper into the Life and strive to make a difference. He possessed a special charisma with which he influenced everyone around him. On this special Day, I wish to pay a Tribute to this great Legend through my Ambigram art- form representing his name in Tricolor. Hope you could figure out the name.

For those of you who are new to the Art form ‘AMBIGRAM’, it’s a word written in such a manner that it can read in more than one way…There are various types of Ambigrams and I concentrated on the Rotational type. You just have to observe the normal image then rotate the image to 180 degrees to see the same image again. Wiki speaks more HERE.

wats CRAZINESS in your terms…

Found something very interesting this time. Just a few years back, we spent our HAPPY DAYS in our college and came out with the bright colors as Graduates. Very soon, most of us entered the world of making Money.

We have 3 stages of life

Teen age:
Have Time + Energy …but No Money

Working Age:
Have Money + Energy …but No Time

Old age:
Have Time + Money …but no Energy

Hope you all will agree with the above pictorial messages

But even in this Fast moving world, we start looking at things in more complex manner that we forget to enjoy the smaller things that are around us. Hope most of you would be hesitating to say ‘YES’. They want to do many stupid things in LIFE but at some point of time, they become introvert and reserved. This way, they forget to enjoy smaller things in Life.So I took sometime to find out the stupid crazy things from few of my friends and well-wishers. Wanna have a look at them??? (Names of the people who provided inputs here, will remain confidential for security reasons) 😀

This was how a few Frustrated Developers and Testers had in mind to do something crazy

  • Getting paid for doing nothing… !!! very strange 😀  
  •  Deleting all prod files/pgms without any identify. Pity on them really. (I also fall in that category at times)

Checked with some few frnz who are very silent to look.  

  • Singing all alone in the room when no one is around
  • Want to perform in a rock band
  • I want to shout at everybody who points me out even though the mistake is not from my end.

Then went to a few bubbly girls to get answers..here are some

  • Would like to have a handful of butterscotch ice-cream and try to eat it out all together .
  • Want to try different hair styles
  • Want to put on different costumes 

Look at these…Craziness at its peak !!!

  • Taking bath in the water falls with a cup of wine. Huh…strange combination right !!! Onsite trip for this Crazy Dream. 🙂
  • In a open space, in a rain and that too during night, on a full moon day need to shout, drench and run around.
  • Dancing in the rain for the whole day.
  • To construct a house just above the sea level with four base pillars in sea and have a personal boat to make it to the shore.
  • Rob lot of money from politicians and want to establish a venture capitalist firm.
  • Go to siachen glacier or Mount Everest.

Many of my Crazy Dreams have been fulfilled. A few of the latest ones are below. 🙂

  • Most of my frnz are very good musicians. I want to attend the functions…sit in front row…shout at my own voice…dance if permission is granted.
  • I want to travel in the bus sitting at the foot board from Chennai to my native – Nellore

Being a girl…people expect me to be reserved and Disciplined 😦 But still waiting for a CHANCE. 🙂

Yes Frnz…we do have many things that we feel to do that gives us Pleasure. Many of my crazy Dreams have been fulfilled. How bout YOU?

Identify the crazy Dreams you want to experience and try them out to

FEEL THE HAPPINESS.

Crazy Dream seems to be smaller ones at times but the Happiness after its fulfilled it much Higher.

Onsite Trip…a different Visualization

As we are well aware about the Corporate Life which almost follows ONSITE – OFFSHORE model so something striked my Mind which I am goin to share here in another few minutes.  Here I go.

People move to Onsite for short terms as well as long terms. There are a FEW things that everyone at Onsite would really MISS during the ONSITE Trip.

Family…Frnz…Well Wishers…tasty food of India (especially Mom’s food)…pani-puri…kulfi…sundal @ road side…Snacks at beach side and lots more.

One thing I have noticed is…a tremendous change in the Life style of people who have been to ONSITE. I will share a few of them here –

Apart from earning more money, people have learnt to be very organized. They take up responsibilities and plan well. Hey..this doesn’t mean that people at OFFSHORE are out of Track. They are also Perfect in their work(coz I am from OFFSHORE right ! ). :D I tell you the reasons…why people become organized when they are at ONSITE.

In India, you would always have people around, so its easy for you to even visit a new place without even having an idea of that place earlier. “anna…andha place ki eppadi ponum, inge nalla hotel enga irku?, Andhra mess deggara lo undha?, Velachery ke liye konsi bus main jaana hai…etc etc etc”. And you get spontaneous response too. ;) But when you are at ONSITE, no one would be beside you to ask such questions. :( So you always carry a Map wherever you travel else you will be caught in the jic-saw puzzle there. This way you learn to be Independent.

Now one more…in India, there are various modes of Transport facility available to reach to any place so people at India bother less when compared to people who are at ONSITE. But there, nobody waits for you. and by chance you are late, you should be ready enough to face Bad consequences also. At times they need to empty their wallets to reach the destination. That’s where ONSITE guys have to stick to be PUNCTUAL. Tell you something…You even learn to manage their Finance by being PUNCTUAL. This gives chance for YOU to learn about MONEY MANAGEMENT also. The last line holds good for people at OFFSHORE too…especially me !!! :D

Let’s go to the next one…At OFFSHORE, you have different ways to showcase yourself but what happens…very FEW really take this as a challenge and work on them. People who used to be lazy in India become very active at ONSITE because they need to take care of everything by themselves. This is the time when the people take up RESPONSIBILITY. There would be times when You start feeling lonely at ONSITE. You start realizing the pain when noone is around you for caring. :( You would like your Family..Frnz..Dear ones, nearby you to share things. I guess you would have caught the lesson by now. Yeah…You will understand the Value of the person you care and go for innovative ideas  to get in touch with them somehow(orkut, messenger, calls and so on). There’s a similar saying related to this situation…”You understand the value of a person only when he is far of from you.”

Here comes my favourite part…wanna know that?

Guys at ONSITE will definately learn to Cook. These days, many girls are looking for this criteria a lot. This adds additional benefits to the girl to select her Life-Partner. :D These days, I feel very happy when Men spend time in kitchen because this will make them understand the pain Women take spending time in kitchen.

Hey…I totally agree that i am not a professional cook but I don’t have worries that I should always prepare food at home because Young Men are also more competitive these days. In the early days, my brothers used to ask to prepare something and get for them but now…believe me, my brothers prepare variety of items…that includes sweets [carrot ka halwa] also.  Many of my frnz (Young Men) have started Enjoying to cook these days. A few of my Frnz told that Cooking has become their Hobby…in other sense, their Passion !!! :)

A single Onsite Trip in a person’s life can make him/her very CIVILIZED. Every individual should experience an ONSITE to implement the exact definitions of these common words atleast once in  his/her LIFETIME [PUNCTUALITY, RESPONSIBILITY and of course COOKING]. ;)
