I will be in Bílore this (6th and 7th) Saturday and Sunday (On Official trip).
I am planning to meet some of my friends there in Bílore on Sat evening around 9.00pm! ( I suppose I would be free then!). Let see if I could meet them this time atleastJ
Well the reason behind an official work on weekends is obvious to recruit ppl into our teams. I hope you would have noticed some ads of HCL coming today that would have given a feel as to what kinda walkin its going to be J. Nice feeling to see such huge ads of a company where you are working on. Also itís a nice feeling to note that we would be on the dias for which the add is wetted out in the vernaculars J Generally as far as my previous experiences on Walkins are concerned they generally bring severe headache to me, lets see how this one goes!.

Questions for which I have some answers :)
Why I Cant Blog frequently ?
Just was doing this insight as to why I am not blogging that regularly nowadays. I could attribute to more than one reason on my bloglessness!,
1) bit occupied with work
2) unprecedented queuing up of my cousinís marriages, and
3) not the least all my personal work - getting queued up!
True, I am not giving enough priority for blogging when compared to other activities. Time management and especially prioritizing the work has taken a toll on my blogging activities.
I still somehow manage to visit all your blogs atleast once in every 3 days to keep in touch.. may be I donít leave my foot prints in all of the blogs that I would visit.
I think, bloglessness comes as a part and parcel of every oneís blogís lifecycle or atleast to me now!
I still would like to update you guys.. that I am here.. but only to be prevented by high priority events that come as a sudden thunderbolt right at top of my head! Uh..
What takes more time in my work?
Now, itís the recruitment time for my team and the interview process which includes.. conducting interviews and coordinating related activities is taking a huge toll of my time.
I almost regularly land up in my home at 12.00pm every nite.
How does personal work gets queued up??
When you land up almost 12.pppm in the nite where would you accommodate your other personal work! No time slots left for em ;)
Do I enjoy this?
I think I do! I love to do more work. I love to work than just sitting idle ;)
How to manage friends during this time!
Well, such a difficult question to answer. May be only thru phone calls! True wasnít able to meet any of my friends in the last two months.. mostly they contact me over phoneÖ they call me during weekends to have an outing.. only to be answered a sweet no..! Its becoming really tougher to answer nos.. lost of nos.. and ppl are getting really angry with me. One of my friend even mailed me like thisÖ ďThis is just to inform you that we are planning stroll around snowbowling @ nungambakkam this Saturday and we know that you would not be available. In case you are available contact us over phone!Ē This is the invitation I am getting nowadays!!!
How long this would continue?
Well.. until I break this habit! I cant quantify the time how long as I myself do not know :)
Would I come back regularly?Hope so.. in the near future.. lets wait and see J

I donno why some guys take pride in vouching support to a foreign country.. To give you an actual heads on.. this is regarding the India- Australia match. I appreciate if it just stops with supporting Australia on the sport front, but if ppl start saying that Australia is a better place to live and kinds.. and tell Indian supporters that India is a worst place to live in the world and things like that! I just cant tolerate.. I donít know why these guys assume themselves to be the citizens of Australia! and fanatically vouch for it.. Guys may be India is not that good place to live, when compared to that of Australia, but this is the place where we Live, I am really proud about my country and my people. May be if a foreigner states that India is not that good place to live in, then I can tolerate, but if an Indian says this, I just cant.
Guys, (who assume yourself to be the citizens of Australia or US or UK , I am referring to Indians who tries to act smart and behave as if they are from a foreign country), donít you think by uttering such untamed remark are you not insulting yourself?? I just cant understand your motive behind this! Are you so stupid to insult yourself?
If you feel you donít belong to this country then why are you still in here! Get out and get lost! We Indians know what our country means to us.
I am sorry if this hurts any of you, but cant stop from blogging this.

This is strange...can you figure it out?
Follow the instructions! NO PEEKING AHEAD!
* Do the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow.
* There's no trick or surprise.
* Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time
and as quickly as you can!
* Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until you've done each of
them ... really.
OK Here is the test.......
1. Think of a number from 1 to 10
2. Now, multiply that number by 9
3. If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together
4. Now subtract 5 from the result.
5. Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you
ended up with
(for example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)
6. Think of a country that starts with that letter
7. Remember the last letter of the name of that country
8. Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter
9. Remember the last letter in the name of that animal
10. Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter
are you thinking of this ??
Select the text using your mouse from here tiil the end of this blog..
Are you thingking of....
Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmarkeating an Orange?
I told you this was FREAKY!! If not, you're among the 2% of the population
whose minds are different enough to think of something else. 98% of people
will answer with kangaroos in Denmark when given this exercise.

Some Questions Ė Some Assumptions Ė But No Answers!
From an Antís Perspective!
I get locked in questions like how will the humans look like in the other creatures eyes. Do we look like huge monsters that wanders, killing these small insects and animals. Are we the dinosaurs for them! We mercilessly stamp on them and kill em! How do we look like from their eyes! But how cud they are calm when such a huge demon comes near it and watching it??
Do we reside on a sub-atomic particle called Earth?
Donít you feel a striking similarity between how atoms and our universe are positioned! Atoms have lotsa electrons and in our solar system we have planets..
Like we examine atoms and study abt it. Does some one who has such a huge stature that even our solar system is just atom like structures are examining us?
What are we doing here. Whatz the destiny? Are we true? How do we prove?
Am I sounding crazy.. Sorry abt this guyz..

Back Into the World Of Table Tennis
Its bin a long time since I played table tennis (TT). Last time I played was in Vijayís house about 2years back, if I am rite. After that, I played TT in my office only yesterday. It was really refreshing. I started to enjoy playing it again. Yesterday, since I was playing after a lonnggg GAP of more than 3years, just played all possible strokes! We are planning to play it daily.
It all began when we (myself and my PL) were discussing on playing TT. We planned to play it on last Saturday, actually I was fully prepared to play on Saturday and we came to office at around 10.00 to play TT. Our plan was to play from 10.00AM to 1.00pm in the afternoon and then go home and retire. But all our plans to play went in vain, due to a scheduled dance rehearsals that was carried out in the same place.. So we returned back to our desks disappointed. Did some pending work and went home to watch the India-Australia match..
Which again was a gr8 disappointment!
So when we came yesterday to office, we had even stronger resolve to play TT!
We decided to play TT at around 8.00pm;). SO when the time struck 8.00, we went running to setup the board and started playing TT.
We played till around 9.00pm then two other guys came and joined us to play doubles. I was in a very fierce and aggressive mood. Poor guys, I literally went for all shots possible and landed most of them into the table too J. Hope fully they donít take those smashes as my actual quality! I generally donít do it though! Since it was after a long time, I played like that.
It was a good feeling playing TT after a long time..
And one good newz is my best friend Vijay is coming down to Chennai in Dec, we are also planning to play TT!! Awaiting him to come over here and we shall relish playing TT together!
Do you play Table tennis?
