Half time whistle

Summer internship is half way thru. The no work- no life balance has just tilted to no work-some life

4 weeks in Chennai. Seems a lot longer than that. Given that I spent my 7 years in Indore in just 2 places. 3 different accomodations in 4 weeks in Chennai has been a lot of fun. I have packed my bags so often that I feel I am doing my summers in a live-out-of-a-suitcase types marketing role.

I have seen 3 beaches in last 4 weeks. Given that I had seen only one in the first 25 years of my life. It has been a jackpot. I kinda like the sea. Its really soothing to walk on that sand holding someones hand (wait, thats just a rhyme, it never happened).

I met some old friends after years and made some new ones. They were all very kind souls to treat and feed this debt-ridden-half-mba-with-no-stipend-yet friend. We talked of all the sweet memories of engg. college and work over soup, coffee, nariyal pani and few other beverages. Man!!! nostalgia is so versatile, makes u laugh, makes u cry.

I have spent last 3 days in bangalore. Till last week, I belonged to that rare species of software engineers who are also lovers of rock music and still haven't been to B'lore. 3 days in B'lore were a blast. Especially after spending most of the April in Chennai, B'lore feels like a hill station. Adding to its already gud weather was the Breeze(r) that kept flowing. Bangalore serves you heavy doses of that essential nutrient that your eyes are completely deprived of in Chennai. This eye-tonic is available everywhere in pubs, malls, streets but is diluted and mixed with crowd.

My summers is more than half way thru. Loads of work to be done. I still don feel like working.

The Purple Haze has not faded yet.


  • "debt-ridden-half-mba-with-no-stipend-yet friend"...hilarious..:)).
    "Breeze(r)", "Purple Haze"......seems like you enjoyed more than one type of tonic in bangalore...;).

  • So then B'lore sure should be an option for me....i definitely need some "free" eye tonic after having spent almost 3 months (6 more to go) with my patient old fellas (i mean co-workers) here. what do u say pranky?

    BTW, Hey Oscar....ur style is really is different and suspicious one, if you get what i mean. U hiding from someone? I know its none of my business and its not my blog but cudn't resist myself, just got curious. Cheers ;)

  • [color=#6699cc]Hi all,
    last night I was looking at the family pictures and I realized that we live in the era of the possibilities for example I am writing a message for un unlimited amount of unknown readers and this makes me entousiast and I want to get more for my future, so more opportunities and more money. I am completing my professional update class but I don't feel still sadisfied and I do regularly self learning too. I am interested in computers and I have created a website for my family (Wow, it was difficult to find a [/color][url=]adult web hosting[/url][color=#6699cc]) but I think that I can make this as my new profession but I still have to pay all my monthly bill so I wanna evaluate things with care. I hope that the time gives good advice.
