ABC Tag

Again, this one’s a new way of getting to know each other in the blogosphere and letting people do what they like to do (i.e. writing about themselves :).. though there’s always an exception).

I was basically tagged by Rohan. Thanks Rohan… 🙂

So, here it goes…

1. A – Available/Single? Not available if I’m not single :). Currently though, single! And I like it
2. B – Best friend? I’m friends with many. But close to few. They know me in and out
3. C – Cake or Pie? Cakes, cakes and more cakes
4. D – Drink of choice? My day compulsorily starts with a full mug of Milk with Bournvita
5. E – Essential item you use every day? My phone and internet
6. F – Favorite color? White, Blue, Red sometimes
7. G – Gummy Bears Or Worms? None
8. H – Hometown? Beed
9. I – Indulgence? Reading, Eating, Hanging out with friends
10. J – January or February? February

21. U – Unknown fact about me? Till 10th std, I din’t know that there existed streams like ‘arts’, ‘science‘ and ‘commerce’ in college. My Maths was good, so I wanted to pursue commerce. My mom had enrolled me to IIT-JEE classes without my knowledge. So, I had to take science. Science and engineering, happened by chance. :). I’m very much thankful for that to my Mom though

Pauus…!!!

Baaher kasla bhaari paus padtoy. Kadhi lecture sampel asa hotay. Lahaanpani kasli majja yaychi pavsat kheltaana. Kadhihi bindhaast khelaycho. Aata kaay? Ya kaahi varshat kadhi mansokt bhijloch naahi paavsaat.

He 4 wheeler waale kiti sukhi astaat. Pavsaacha traasch naahi hyanna.

Baliraaja, tujhi ashich kirpadrushti asu de amhavar.

Shit! Kiti kaam rahile aahet baaherche. Baaher nighta pan yet naahi. Kiti bhur-bhur bhur-bhur padtoy paus. Kaay ekdacha padaaycha aahe to padun ka ghet naahi paus? Kinva Paus ratrich sagla kaa padat naahi?

Aaj sutti maarto office la! Itka sundar paus. Hila masta bhaji talaayla sangto aani mag special chaha aani maza aavdta pustak. Kyaa baat hain!

Aga baai, Paus??? Achanakch kaay? Baap re, ghari kapde waalat ghatle aahet. Chinu laksha naahi thevnaar. Sasubaaina uthta yenaar naahi. Hyanchya kapdyancha udya kasa vhaycha?

“Ye le, ye le pavsa, tula deto paisa, Paisa zaala khota, paus aala mothaaaaa…!!!”

Eee…!!! Pauuuuuus! Mhanje aata kiti kachkach honaar. Sshiii… Bus madhye tar ajun ghaan vadhte aani rastyavarun chalayla tar vaitaag yeto.

Haa krutrim paus (artifical rain) aahe kaa?

Paus jevha hava tevha kaa yet naahi aani jevha nako tevhach kaa yeto? Mhanje paavsacha timing evdha kaa gandta?

“Ae adya, arre gaadi kadh… ‘Mittya’la pan sang. Chal, lonavalyala jau yaar. Ved majaa yeil.”

Arre Pavsa, please ardha taas thamb. Mala aaj interview aahe. Kapde bhijaayla nakot yaar. Ardha taas thamb. Mag jevdha padaaychay tevdha pad.

YAY, Pauus!!! Mhanje shaalela sutti aaj. 🙂

Baapre, andhar padlay. Paus thambaycha naav ghet naahiye. Hi activa pan suru vhayla traas dete. Riksha pan bhetat nahiye. Mi ghari kashi janaar? Hyancha phone pan laagat nahiye.

Hmmm… Paus! Mi aani ti, CCD madhye baslo aahot. Maage radiovar mast ‘hoshwaalon ko khabar kyaa’ suru aahe. Kiti tari vel ithech basavasa vatatay. Paus thambuch naye. “2 More Coffee Please”. Wow…!!! What a perfect date!

Privileged

Remember, me mentioning about the joy of that particular guy who’d be amongst those to have got placed first, I’d never have imagined I’d be one of those… and I am… 🙂

Yes, I’m placed at S-One, a banking solutions company…

Imagining the joy was easier… Feeling it is exasperating… The feeling hasn’t yet sunk in… Dunno how to react to the fact that I’m now on the other side of pool… And I can see my friends trying to make it… I hope they make it… I’ve not really been one of those to have made it so early.. So, it’s pretty different feeling too…
Life is great… It surprises you every now and then… Cheers…

It’s that time of the year again

Okay… So, this is it… That time of the year has arrived, this time, with a different flavour though… But there’s not a slight bit of change in the zeal, the curiosity and the anxiety it brings about, with it. Everyone’s talking about it. The air’s filled with confusion, concerns, curiousity, nervousness, tension, pressure. People are trying to master the tricks of this new game. A kinda new race has begun for everyone.
Nobody wants to lag behind for sure. Everyone’s trying to put in the best. Old, tacky books are being revisited. I personally haven’t spent so much time in the library before, than I’m spending now. Everyone, now a days, is worshipping the new God, ‘Shakuntala Devi’ (Did I ‘puzzle’ you with this one? [:)]). People discussing about movies, girls, crushes, food, sports and technology otherwise, are now discussing about the very fresh and blue, you guessed it right, the ‘Placement season’. And so, one can normally listen to conversations like “Kaunsi company kab aa rahi hain?… Kitna package de rahi hain?… Yaar, package agar ‘4’ (4 lacs) se kam hain to main nahi baithunga uss comapny ke liye… Company kiss domain mein kaam karti hain? Kyaa kyaa questions poochhe jaate hain? Yaar ‘apti’ to clear hona chahiye… Tu toh clear ho hi jaayega… ‘xxx’ company ‘yyy’ namak student ko to pakka uthayegi… Hardly 10-12 log place honge.. Mere chances to kam hain… Tum ek baar select ho jaao to dusri comapny ke liye baith nahii sakte… Abhi placements kyun hain? Muze GRE/CAt ke liye padhna hain? Aage jaake main kuchh bhii karu lekin abhi agar job mile to sort of ‘backup’ rahega” and blah and blah and blahNow you can see the whole ‘new’ BE batch, together at a time in college… a rare scene… A certain company, which used to be less on priority till last year, has become ‘the hot favourite’ suddenly. Everyone’s(?) now neatly dressed in formals… Even I had to go and buy some formal clothes. (something which I hate to do… buying clothes… shopping in general… coz my parents have been doing it for me more often and I even hate more to wear formals)…
Looking at this whole atmosphere, I get a feeling that I’m back to where I started… that I’m a fresh HSC passed student, who’s sort of trying for the ‘Best engineering college’ with a desirable branch… It’s just the same now, as it was before. Just that, we’ll be facing few added rounds of interview… Otherwise, it’s just the same glow in everyone’s eye… That desire of wanting to be at best possible place.. The nervousness of not screwing up the tests and putting career at stake… And that, after getting into one of the ‘Best engineering colleges’, that reaffirmed sigh of relief that the future is now safe since this college offers best jobs… Until… until it turned out that ours would be the unfortunate batch, which would be hit by downsizing and which meant ‘no jobs’ for few more months. And for now, this is pretty much the scene that only 10-12 amongs 300 odd students will get a job. Nevertheless, I’m pretty optimistic that things would change by coming december. I hope nobody’s dream, after stepping into college and living with that dream for 3-4 years and working hard to achieve that, gets shattered. I hope my fellow batchmates(including me :)) will get a respectable job or atleast, will get to do PG at a good university.
Somehow, I’m loving this shorter round of placments though. Pretty odd to have 2 rounds of placements. But this will prepare us for the bigger picture that would hopefully arrive in december.
I can only imagine right now, the joy of that particular guy, who’ll walk out of the interview room triumphantly, and that, he’d be the first amongst we all, to get placed.
Cheers… 🙂
