Making Peace

January 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

This is just a random thought, not sure even if I am getting it right. Anyway, here it goes:

Every night before one goes to sleep, one should make peace with himself. We get into lots of good/bad/ugly things every day, which we love/like/hate. But, you know what, its after all you and your own self.

Forgive or appreciate yourself. Call it a day! ๐Ÿ™‚


The Perfect Day

January 1, 2010 § 3 Comments

The notion of ‘perfect’, I think, is subject to the person we are talking about. It depends on values, beliefs, aspirations,ย  expectations on you, current state of existence & past too.

My perfect self would like to do lots of things of interest without worrying about the limiting world of time & space, at the same time trying to live up to every expectation.

Yesterday, the 31st of December 2009 was one such day, ok, almost one such day. ๐Ÿ™‚ In no way, I could have possibly shuffled between all the roles (a friend, self, employee ofย  Wells Fargo, entrepreneurial drives..) better. Needless to say I was glad with the ending.

Rewinding back to 31st:
Woke up at 8 with the alarm being snoozed from 6 30..had a quite breakfast like the calm before the storm. Jotted down my ideas on a project (entrepreneurial of course), sent it a friend for his thoughts. Left for office.

The full day was supposed to be spent for a video which we are planning to show for our company town-hall. But, there were enough tasks for 3 hours waiting in my inbox. Good. While I was at it, got paged for 2 production issues. For, non IT folkโ€™s production issue means ‘there is something wrong with server/application that is live’. If fixing the issue takes more than an hour, lots of important folks in US need to be informed whatever time of the night it is. This was in a day, when both my team mates are on vacation. ๐Ÿ™‚ Awesome!

After missing my lunch time by 2 hours, around 4 PM we started with the video when we realized the battery is down, uff. Spending an hour with arranging the tripod stand, we were close to completion at 6 30 pm.

Wrapped up all the work, tripods, cameras and started for the 7:10 show, 3 idiots at INOX. Reached the INOX complex at 7:30 after a classic-metro-festival-traffic jam & bike breaking down thrice. Hmm… In a hurry, I had left my mobile at the flat. With Sreekanth, Shalini inside the hall & me outside without the tickets/seat number, it was a nightmare. In the whole of Hyderabad, I remember only 3 mobile numbers(including mine). Equipped with that knowledge tracked down Shalini’s number only to find that itโ€™s switched off. WTF!
So, with the security accompanying me inside the hall, I found them, finally! All was well after that. ๐Ÿ˜›

3 Idiots
One cool movie. Though did not get much of the Hindi dialogues, loved it. Especially the ambidextrous psycho director, Rancho mixing up all the papers after late submission & baby kicking for ‘All Is Well’. Haha. Good watch. Fitting for a Dec 31st.

We were having Chocolate dessert & Iced tea when the world (in IST) silently plunged into 2010. Happy New Year everyone!
