Exception(al)!! :)

im_not_geek

Over the last few weeks, I had been very busy…naturally the frequency of me posting my writeups here, had taken a backseat…14 hours of work plus 2 hours of travel took most of my daily time…

For an interactive person like me, this situation is pretty sad….

Friends started getting worried about my constant absence both online and offline. Two of you lovely ladies, Isd and CuteAngel were sweet enough to mail me enquiring if I was doing ok…Thank you buddies…its always a nice feeling if someone misses me, either for my posts or for my visits on their blogs…whatever be the reason, it means a lot…Owe you one ladies! 🙂 

Also not finding me available on the office communicator, I got mails from a few close buddies asking me if I was alive…Yes, I was indeed alive but in hell!! 😉 Thanks guys for those caring mails!!  🙂

Four weeks ago, I was on bench with no work allocated to me…and then I got an opportunity to replace a guy who was going on leave for his wedding in a highly sensitive project and with complex reports to be developed, but more importantly to capture the work ethics in 2 days time before the groom left on his approved leave. I was supposed to be his best man at work!! 😉

Three weeks of replacement time ends this coming monday, and  I must say it was the best learning experience in the shortest time possible…Over a week, I got used to the 14 hours per day routine that I will now miss (unless I get screwed again in the next assignment! :P) for sure. 

It was lovely to work in co-ordination with my onsite guy…he was helpful to the last detail…I would say, it would have been impossible without him and his constant push…!! Thanks man! 🙂

And best thing is that the clients are happy with what I have delivered in the last 3 weeks and so was my onsite co-ordinator and manager…so the efforts were worthwhile…yay! 😀

For the two weeks that I was on bench prior to this project, I was involved in the making of a video of my parody for the annual day event of a few verticals in my company. I had a lovely time writing the lyrics and the storyboard…as well as in the directing and editing of the shoot!! Though I missed attending the event owing to work, I got to know that at the event there was a loud roar of applause and cheering…the feedbacks by a handful who saw it offline have also been awesome…!! 😀

As of now am working on a photo-video for another event thats coming up next tuesday!!  And I’m lovin’ it!! 😀

Kaam….Aaaram! (Work….Rest!) :)

bench_trilogy

Kaam…
Hum khoob karte the!
Aaraam…
Kya hey? Ye poocha karte the!

Din ho ya raat…
Kaam ki thi baat!
Tha bus chai ka saath…
Na dost na ghar, jaise anaarth!

Kaam….
Hum liya karte the!
Aaraam…
Ka khwaab dekh bhi naa sakte the!

Badal gaya zamaana…
Recession naya bahaana!
Taala laga hua khazaana…
Bandh hua jashan manaana!

Aaraam…
Karne ki aadath nahin!
Kaam…
Karte rehna lagta hey sahi!

Nahi hoon pareshan about my bhatakta mann…
But the worry is about the badhta tann!
Bench pe tashreef actually pains… 😉
But kya kare, boss says profitability constraints! 😛

Aaraam…
Main kar nahi sakta!
Kaam…
Kiye bina main reh nahi sakta! 😀

************************************************
English Translation:
************************************************

Work…
We used to do in lots!
Rest…
Whats that? We used to ask!

Whether day or night…
Talks were about work!
Tea was our only companion…
No friends nor family, just like orphans!

Work…
We used to take!
Rest…
We couldn’t even dream about it!

The situation has changed…
Recession is the latest excuse!
All treasures are locked…
All treats have stopped!

Rest…
We are not used to it!
Work…
Doing it seems to be the right thing!

I’m not bothered about my wandering mind…
But the worry is about putting on weight!
Sitting on bench, it actually pains… 😉
But what to do, boss says ‘profitablity constraints’! :mrgreen:

Rest…
I cannot do!
Work…
Without which I cannot live! 😀
