Jam on the way to your Bread and Butter

If you are an office goer, who has to travel anywhere towards ITPL or Electronic city from home, you will most probably know what I am talking about. For the uninitiated (luckily) however, i am talking about the massive traffic snarls that occur on a daily basis on these routes. It further sickens me that the decision to have the much wanted Metro Rail system, which will definitely put an end to these problems, is being dilly-dallied upon by our netas. Looks like t is time to take Bangalore off the world map, purely because we are no longer world class, either in terms of Infrastructure or in terms of leadership

The Bald and the Beautiful

It is finally official.....I am balding. I shall live a full healthy life carrying forward the bald tradition of the Kini Family Men, casting jealous glances at people who are blessed with lush, thick hair. Initially, itried every trick in the book to keep my hair intact. Oiled it, shampooed it etc....But gravity seems to be hell bent on taking my hair off my head. I guess the omnipresent Dr. Batra is the only option left for me now.

Flying High (?)

If you are a Software engineer, you would have, by now, asked by innumerable number of aunties and uncles as to when you will be flying abroad. And if you say "I have no idea", then it is as good as shooting yourself in the foot. I wonder why people make such a big fuss out of it. It's not like you have to go abroad to earn a reputation as a good Software Engineer. But i guess, it's a little difficult to make Computer-Illiterate people realise that.

In the cradle of Mother Nature

I had the good fortune of visiting Kodachadri during the month of April. It is when Mangalore is at its hottest, but as you climb up the peak, you realise that weather at sea level matters zilch as it keeps getting colder with every meter you ascend. Moreso if ascension is at night. Me and four of my other friends trekked 13 kms to the top of the peak from 8:00 pm to 12:30 am, and boy was it tiring. But the view that we got in the morning (it was too dark to see at night dummy) made all the efforts worth it. Take alook at the pics and tell me honestly they do not take your breath away.

Back to the routine

It's a Monday again...the vicious cycle of life continues. But it is a different start to the week. I am undergoing training for the rest of the week. Hence no real pressure on me to do work. Does feel good.

Yo Ho Ho...And a Bottle of Rum

Uncork the champagne....It's another weekend. Amazing how a Friday can infuse so much life into me. Wish everyday would seem like a Friday. Maybe my outlook to life would be as rosy as it is on this glorious day.
