Recap of 2008

It’s time to re-cap the events that happened in 2008. I just could not digest the fact that 365 days have gone by in a flash, but that's the speed at which our lives run these days. Here are the highlights of my life in its true sense of authenticity...

1. The biggest joy of this year is the wedding of one of my close friend. She has been an integral part of my life and I always wished her to get settled in life and lead a happy married life, that great occasion happened in the month of Feb and I was flying on top of this world that day.

2. After being with Oracle for more than a decade, I decided to quit Oracle and I joined another product company as an Architect and with a salary which I have never dreamt even in the wildest of my dreams. It’s just few lakhs less than my age ;-) It’s a whopping figure. This happened in the month of May

3. I wanted to prove myself and establish myself in this new company and by GOD's grace I did that with ease and also got 3 awards in a short span.

4. One of my close friend was blessed with a baby boy. He is my sweet heart as of now, anyone would fall prey for his mesmerizing smile.

5. Got some good blogger friends, and to name some - Amrita, Shylu, Elango, Ramesh, Kiran, Chennai Girl etc etc. Thanks for all your encouragement and comments guys!!!

Ah, I could not recollect anything major other than these; I always feel that I am a GOD blessed child. GOD has always given me more than what I deserve, so I should admit the fact that he has kept me happy and he is keeping me happy. I wish and pray that he takes care of me the way he always does and help this useless boat to reach the shore. How can I finish off this note without thanking my FRIENDS who are my greatest asset and strength of life. I am proud to have such an affectionate friends circle and without their support and encouragement, I wouldn’t have come this far in my life.

Is that a Compliment ?

I interviewed this fellow few months back and he joined my office last week. He sits a few cubicles away from mine, but he can clearly see me and what I am doing. Today it happened that we both were the only two folks in the office at 8 in the morning. I don't know that he is also from Chennai and speaks tamil, all of a sudden my mobile phone ringed my fav song "Karikaalan Kaala Pola ..." and I picked it up and spoke for while in my mother tongue and cut the line. Satish being Satish, did not initiate the first conversation as I generally don't talk much to strangers unless they come and talk to me, may be its in my gene and I am not able to change that character of mine. He came to my desk and asked "You were the one you interviewed me rite ?" and I said "yes ..." On seeing me, he was not able to judge either my role or my experience or my age, probably he got confused. I don’t have anything to talk to him, so I did not initiate any further conv
