Five puppies were born near my aunt’s house in coimbatore. But the dog expired on the day after delivery.So people in the quarters planned to bury those puppies also along with it’s mother. But my uncle doesn’t wanted to kill them.So my uncle and family took care of those puppies.

They bought milk for it advised by doctor and gave medicines.But it was lacking the warmness that should be given by it’s mother. Some how these people managed to provide it by giving a bed of cotton and clothes and using a hair dryer. They fed these puppies using a feeding bottle. All members of the family were busy these days feeding the puppies.

But now all these puppies died one by one.My cousins, uncle and aunt are so sad about it. My uncle who is very close to pets has written the following poem which really touched my heart. May the soul of all those puppies rest in peace.

We were four brothers and a sister-

were born on a chilly night.

It was all dark around and

we could see nothing;

Our mother was very affectionate towards us.

We could hear her talking to us

in soft, soothing voice.

We could feel her love and affection in her warmth.

But, she was with us only for a day.

We were not fortunate to be with our mother.

We could hear people talking

that our mother was bitten by a snake;

We were all worried, being made orphans

even before we  opened our eyes..

We longed to see our mother’s face,

but we were not fortunate enough.

All of a sudden, we could feel ourselves

being carried away and dumped in a bush.

That night was horrible to us.

We were without milk, without our mother

and without anyone to care for us.

But, God was kind enough – the next day

some one took us back and handed over us

to a loving family, who took care of us like our mother.

They fed us with milk, gave us shelter and were all

kind to us, treating us  as their children,

fondling us with their tender hands.

But, it did not lost for long.

We developed disease and became weak day by day.

We could realize that our days were numbered.

We took leave from the world, one by one.

Though we could not see the world when we were alive,

now we could see the world where we lived;

we could see the people who cared for us;

we will remember them for ever.

We hope that we will come back to meet them again-

in some form, at some point of time.

Anna Univ Days

One of my friends told that she was feeling much bored and wanted me to update my blog.Also I didn’t blog much after entering this new place.So thought of writing on my days here.

I like and enjoy this transition from corporate world back to the college life.I never thought that i would get a typical college life again after completing the bachelors.I never thought that i would do a post graduation in Engineering.But lot of transitions happened in my mind during the days when i worked for a company and that has directed me here.When i chose this option, i was not very much sure that i am doing a right thing.But now am sure that i have did a right thing. I have found a right place for me at right time.

The first thing i felt after joining the college is I get more free time after a year. Though I was in the corporate for just one year, i felt this a great gift for me. I am now out of that machine life spending more than 12 hours in same place though i liked the work assigned for me.I didn’t have time to satisfy my own interests. But now I have lot of time to do all those[Photography,Painting,Pencil-Sketch].

Though i haven’t joined IITs i don’t worry much about it as i didn’t make any attempt for it.I am happy with what i have. I liked the flexibility here and few professors really impressed me. At times my passion towards the teaching profession increases seeing few lectures which i never got during my bachelors program.I liked the methodologies followed for assessments(more of practical than theoretical) which gives less work to my memory.I never spend much time with my books and I do enjoy it.But there are occasions when I get loaded with assignments at same time.Some way I managed to get a good score in my first semester.

Regarding friends, i really got a good pack of people around me as usual. That happens well for me at every part of my life right from my schooling.🙂 Though most of them are younger than me by a year i don’t feel any difference in them. I have lot of fun with them. Luv those nick names they shoot at me.[Secret..].Daily visits to canteen, rest in green benches under the trees, Daily juices, Morning walk into the forest of the college are those that i enjoy a lot.Enjoyed my b’day treat at Sangeetha with new friends.Planning for a B’day treat tomorrow[The B’day baby being the one who motivated me to write this post :)].Having good time with new people. Getting more experienced in learning people.

Two years of vegetarianism has come to an end due to frequent advises by my mom and a friend who is a strict non-vegetarian(She made me eat chicken after a long time).Hope she doesn’t bang me after reading this.Seeing my friend’s Apple laptop, I got tempted to have a MAC feel on my Ubuntu and I always fight with her telling mine is better than hers🙂 There are many such funny things happening here.

The most memorable event is that I was able to attend a live concert by my favourite singer Karthik during the cultural program.I attended it on a night before my MPC assessment without knowing a word in the book.But got a decent score in the assessment.:) Had our class meet up at Elliot’s Beach with our professor Madhan and his family.Had good time with them.

The funny part of this is that my lovable friends[BE friends] keep kidding me as I am the only person among them still roaming around the college while they are software professionals now.They tell me a “student” and keep kidding me in all the conference calls as I often tell them that I am busy with my assignments and assessments.Yet I love those comments.Waiting to meet them all this coming weekend.

At room, all my friends envy at me as I come back from college so early and they come very late depending on their shifts.These days we had lot of B’day celebrations at room and in the past month my calories has increased at a higher rate having all chocolate,pastries,ice-creams and nuts.

Now am almost done with a year in Anna University. 50% of my post graduation is over🙂 Wanna start with project for the next year. This one year has left good memories in me and ended up in a rapid speed.I am happy with everything as of now.Hope the same prevails in the upcoming year.

Good Old Memories-My letters…

Posted: February 12, 2010 in Myself

Two days back,one of my professors was speaking on the advancement of Internet and other technologies. He was telling that e-mail has replaced the traditional letters and posts.Time has come to place the post boxes,in-land letters and post cards in museum so that the future generation will know that people used these stuffs for communication in the past(Just as we now tell people used pigeon to send messages in the olden days).My professor questioned us whether we had ever got chance for writing letters during the childhood.

This simple question brought those glorious moments in my mind.Those were the days when I was in class IV staying with my grand parents, I used to write letter to my parents after getting my mid term marks. My letter will be well formatted with proper header,date,greeting,body and signature.I would have followed all the rules of letter writing taught in my school. The body of the letter would contain a table[drawn using scale and pencil] containing the subjects and the marks I have scored in the mid-term.I would get my grand dad’s help to post that letter but wont let my grand pa or grand ma to read it.He has to paste the corners of the letter without looking inside[That is my personal na.. How could they read it.. :-)].Since I heard people telling that we shouldn’t read others’ letters and I wanted my grand parents also to follow it.But while writing the letter, I used to spell whatever I write so that my grand dad should do the grammar checks[Syntax and Semantic Checks :-)].Thus a sheet of paper with my childish words written on it made a pleasure link between me and my parents.

The funniest part is that now this grown kid often gets confused whether to write TO address or FROM address first on the cover while sending any courier.

Thus I was floating in my own cloud of memories during the cloud computing lecture.

Fear of Flight

Fear of Flight—I don’t know why am much scared of this life less creature. This fear that started during my childhood is prevailing even now.

Once my parents planned for an air travel from Chennai to Coimbatore when I was in class four. I was happy hearing that. But after coming to the airport I got frightened seeing big flights parked in the airport. I told my dad that I would stay with my uncle in Chennai and I asked them to go. My dad was convincing me telling that there is nothing to fear. But I didn’t give up. Finally he agreed with my wish and told that I can go with my uncle after giving a send off to them. That was my first visit to an airport. We were sitting in a waiting hall. After sometime there was an announcement and I didn’t know what that was. My dad told that we have to move to another room where we have to wait till the flight comes. So we walked to that room through a long passage. That room was like a small auditorium with seats on both sides of the path. My dad asked me to sit near him and I was looking around the room and at the lights over my head. Then there came an announcement to fasten the seat belts and only then I realized I was sitting in a flight. The flight’s door was very close to the passage through which we walked and I didn’t know that I was stepping in to a flight and not into any room. I stared at my dad and he asked me to close my eyes tightly to get out of the fear. The flight took off. I usually get vomiting sensation when I travel in bus. So I tried to bring that sensation though I didn’t get it. The air hostess brought sandwiches and drinks. My brother had everything. But I missed them out of fear and later realized I should have had them. Thus was my first air travel experience.

The flights have created a great impact on me that I often see them even in my dreams. I was narrating one such dream to my friends and they were enjoying it. Let me post it here……

One fine evening after my office work I was getting ready for my friend’s (Binu) marriage in Dindigul. I went to the airport. There were big flights being parked like the buses in the bus stand. I went near one of them and enquired about the next flight to Dindigul. I was pointed to a flight standing near by. I went and took a window seat in that flight. The great comedy here was the flight was running on a highway along with other vehicles. I saw a bus moving in parallel and I found Binu sitting in the bus. I called her and asked where she was going.I know it is a stupid question. But i was in a world where there was no logic and no rules as in reality. She told me that she was going for her marriage. We were exchanging some conversations as the flight and bus were running parallel in the highway. All of a sudden something unexpected happened. A man was trying to cross the road. The pilot got out of control and instead of pressing the break he made the flight take off. As the flight started moving upwards I fell down from the flight and hit the ground. I don’t know what happened after that as I lost my consciousness. Like in some Tamil movies I opened my eyes in a hospital. Then I woke up from my bed, realized it was a dream and started laughing alone.

In another dream, I was standing in the corridor of my home and drinking a cup of milk and was just seeing the roadside. I then noticed a flight flying at a great height was coming down the level. Suddenly it got burst into pieces over my neighbor’s home.

Now I don’t have the fear of flying after few travels during my trip to Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. I have also made a solo air travel from Chennai to Coimbatore few days back (Between same points as in my first travel). I have become comfortable in flying and enjoying the view of the earth below me. But even now my blood pressure increases if I see a flight very closer. I feel like I am viewing a whale. I wonder haven’t I seen a mountain which is much bigger than a plane. Yet I didn’t get any answers for my fear.

As I walk through my college campus to reach my department in the morning, when ever the Kingfisher or the Emirates flies close over my head all these gets flashes before me and goes off.

Next journey ;-)

It is very long since I blogged. It might be because I didn’t have time (really…) or I didn’t feel to blog.

Now another transition has occurred in my life.

It is corporate life -> student life

I have gained a year of experience in corporate life. It was good right from my ILP at Bhubaneswar till my Buysell project in Chennai one😉 Lot of sweet and bitter experiences I had. Got acquainted with different people of different years of experience and with people from different parts of the country. Gained some knowledge in the technologies like Oracle E-Business suite and PL/SQL.Had wonderful time with my team members of my project though we were forced to work over hours.

But I felt I needed a break from this corporate life. So I decided to do Masters in Computer Science in Anna University Chennai. I am back to my student life. I have more time to breathe now.😉. This is what my parents desired. Hope I shall spend time in some useful way to explore something. Wanna spend time on something that I always like but never took effort to do those. My classes have started. It is fine.The faculties have a great profile and i got inspired by few of them.It is quite a different feel to sit in the class now after a short gap. Hope I will update this blog often from now.
