Last week!!!

Sunday had a release... Tueday morning Volume testing in Production Environment...
For my luck, rather lack of it, Test failed...
Come again, Wednesday morning... Test again fails... I was getting frustated. Problem was with my local test box, rather than the applications...
Thursday morning... Couldn't run the test at all...
Friday Morning again couldn't run the test... So Test postponed to Friday evening.

Thank goodness, "somehow" the run went fine...
Fine? heck, I was almost about to raise an alert for the traffic I induced in production :-)

Totally, only 4 x 4 = 16 hours of sleep for 4 freaking days!!! Actually was in straight 27 hours in office in between :-(

I could see the frustation growing, me losing the concentration... On Friday made all the silly mistakes during the test. Not good.

Bought new adidas shoes... sholud have bought a little bigger shoes... hopefully they should get expanded...

My left leg's figer are in pain...
Same story, whenever I buy new shoes...

Reminds me my NCC days... Ha... those NCC shoes...!!!


One of my favourite past time : sitting on the bench near the big playground near my home, and watch all the kids play... on a Sunday Morning...

It's not very big, not too small, irregular shaped ground. On sunday morning *atleast* 15-20 small teams will be playing in that ground. Mostly Cricket.

Love watching those kids playing.... reminds me my childhood. I used to play Cricket. I used to bowl, bat and the best I like in Cricket, fielding. I didn't suck though


Next Weekend I have CAT exam. I am just writing for some experience. No hopes at all. I can only blame myself. Got too much involved in Office works in the last 2-3 months...

now I am wondering If management is good for me... even Consulting for that matter...

Confusion never stops.Life never fails in astonishing me.

Some one told me... "Life is a game. The day you feel it's not, you are dead" [sic]

"Its not working!!!"

"I think that application is down..."

"You sure it's not the data problem?"

"Ok... we have an issue"

"Where is the results of the previous run?"

"How about changing that? ok I will try that... you go ahead with your data..."

Time ticks away....

"Guys.. do we have any update?"


"We are working on the issue..."

"Hey... Its working now!!!!!!!"

Clapps... Congratulations... Smiles all around... Sigh of relief from everybody...

"What actually went wrong?"

"I don't care, It's 2 AM now!!! me sleepy..."

Typical production sundays....

Fix you...

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
High up above or down below
when you too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what your worth
Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears streaming down your face and I
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I
Lights will guide you home And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

What a Pity...

Today is Novmber 1st.
That means, "Karnataka Rajyothsava", Karnataka celebrates its 50th anniversary of its formation as a state in India.

I am in Ofice, though its an official holiday...

Funny thing I noticed...

"Eee dina karnataka Rajyothsava prayuktha raje ghoshisalagide"
"Jai Kannada, Jai Karnataka"

Those were the sign boards hanging at my office's gate :-)

You know why?
Else these the members of "Kannada hitasakthi samithi" or something similar to that will throw stones at your office, specially if it is an IT office... ( Isn't it fun to throw stones on a building with glass walls?)

Similar things were seen during the recent bundh in Karnataka.

What does it mean?
People are forced to love Kannada, at least pretend/act like they do.

I agree, Bangalore is bombarded with people from all over the country because of this IT thingy... Kannadigas feel so insecure in their own Capital, that they have to force the junta to love Kannada.

I don't know if same happens in other states...

Kannada... What a Pity.
