I am hungry, I am tired. And this should be an excuse for my mind to take over me, while I struggle with myself to work. I don’t know much how these four months passed by, but I got to know myself a lot more. It is not pure respect, I hated myself too. But nevertheless, these were four months following which I would like to pat myself, take three days off, sleep, read Jeffrey Archer, or maybe Paulo Coelho (any suggestions?), and come back to work again.
I never complete these posts in one go. Perhaps, I should start writing the dates for different parts So, ignore the tense here, as “today” might have been three weeks earlier. We logically had fourth iteration of Zumbl today. For the background, I didn’t sleep yesterday so I was really tired today. As a result, [...]
At the very outset I would like to clear that the title “the fake employee” refers to me, and the post is about my experiences during my internship at Microsoft Research, Bangalore. The story starts about a year back, when I was told how good a place MSR is, by some of my seniors. I [...]
It has been a long time, since we have been waiting for the big day, the day of launch of our first iteration. About a month later on the 14th July, we will finally have our first launch. And guess what, our most direct competitor will be airtime.com. Not really a competitor though. Infact, it will bring forward people to talk to strangers, let them go off their hesitancy to talk to strangers.
I remember reading a poem in my childhood where a student innocently prays to God “Don’t fail me God, else I will have new batchmates but old benches”, there is no such issue in IIT as the benches have no correlation with the class you are in. But nevertheless it makes me smile.
Continued from my old blog post Roller Coaster of Dreams – When your Dreams Come True (Part 1). So JEE results are out. Becchare fucche (the word used for freshers over here). And this reminded me of my first semester. I remember first time I visited IIT, it was a very hot day which made [...]
I want to be there with you Somewhere near you Where we can dream together About each other Talk till the end of the aurora Still not tired Walk freely Sleep in each other arms Feeling the warmth Wait for the Cold breeze To make us Hold each other Tighter then ever Without bothering Without [...]
Wikipedia is all set to be shut down in response to “Stop Online Piracy Act”. I did my part of research in the afternoon trying to grasp about the law, how it would affect US, and more importantly (atleast, I presume so) it would affect us, in India. And I came across this title of [...]
New Year is fast approaching. While watching TV, I happened to see an advertisement by Coco Cola and I must say an awesome advertisement. The advertisement offers people with an alternate view of the optimism, much like fairy tales. (Very comparison with the fairy tale boasts about the pessimism which is there in our minds [...]
I just want to share an answer on one of the forums (quora) that happened to clutter my mailbox. The question that was asked was, If there is no God or gods, then what is there? Life. The moment. Love and loved ones. Accomplishment. Friendship and friends. The fascinating journey from birth to death. Self-confidence. [...]
I have firmly believed that the secret to stay happy is to stay happy. The obvious recursion in the statement has puzzled me for long while my belief in the above said hypothesis has managed to retain its firmness. Finally after a long time, I think I have figured it out. It is about perception [...]
Here I come with a strange proposition – “Life is a fraud”. I wouldn’t be wrong to say that this is where I sum quite a few of my life experiences to. This post is dedicated to my friends who doesn’t agree with this funda of mine (and almost every other funda of mine). Before [...]
