Some days back I got this beautiful SMS which reminded me of all my near and dear ones specially my friends with whom I have shared so much wonderful memories...The Sms goes like this

We make so many friends....

Some went abroad....
Some changed deir cities...
Some left us....
V left some....
Some r in touch...
Some r nt in touch...
Some dn't contact coz of deir ego...
V don't contct some coz of our ego...
Wtever dey r...
However dey r....

We still remeber,love miss,cherish them cos of the part they played to make our "Precious Memories"

Don't you think this sms holds true for everyone of us. Think about the future we might not even be in touch with our friends but the memories will still remain. It will be etched in our minds as long as we live.
Just remeber our college days yaar we used to have so much fun playing cricket everyday after college is finished...How after playing we used to have that ice gola or the 1-2 Re pepsi....In btw we joined our engineering colleges still kept in touch and went for two trip to Rajasthan and Kerala...They were so much fun..We can never forget the incident in the train just before Madgaon station...Pakya ke anmol ankhaken....Amar and Lalit having trouble in Rajasthan(lol)...The prank we played on Pakya at Dhaval's place...Then the evening cricket matches which used to be so intense, it was like we were playing for a cup or sumthing...then Amar's special Pj's and how Dhaval used to mock Amar....Then how can we forget the Holi celebrations at Swapna's place and the parties she used to throw...And then the New year's party at Rishina's place and the get-together at her place....And the list goes on....................

After engineering came the time when everyone started with their job or went for higher studies and that when we starting meeting for less time...The group became smaller and smaller....Such is the irony of life that now when we have started earning and can splurge we don't have the friends to share this with us.....All that remains are the beautiful memories which will last us for a lifetime
Yes we do meet many new friends...but I feel the friendship which we have during over college life holds special memories for us as we share one of the best times our life.....Hope we stay in touch with each other and share many more wonderful memories.

Life during Recession.....

It’s been two months since I have written anything. So I will bring you up to date with whats going in my life. Actually I did not get the required motivation to write, what with the last months of my college life I was busy with the final thesis work then the exams and of course the farewell parties.if I had worked on thesis from the start could have finished without many hiccups but what to do as like before I started just some time earlier than the deadline(Even then I was one of the few persons to start early). Then I had my vacations but went to my native place Kerala and again I did not have the inclination to write.
After I came home I thought I would start writing but then the appointment letter from the company was taking too long to come. I had got placed in December it was 3 months since I got placed and still no appointment letter. Three of my friends who got placed in the same company as mine got the letter in the 3rd week of April so I was tensed. This was because of the recession and news about people getting laid off, students being put on hold etc. I was worried that I got laid off even before I could start my professional life. It was like a hollow pit in my stomach in those days really very bad. Even when I tried to search for jobs there was nothing related my field and this made the situation more worse. I know not getting a job is not the end of the world and especially when things are not in your hand you can’t stop recession from taking over your job, can we? That when I realised why should I worry so much. I just have to give interviews and try and get into whatever job and hope for the best, we just can’t just sit with our hands tied down have to face it with our head held high. I know it’s easier said than done, but we have to think positively or we won’t be able to move forward. For me it was a whole week of tension and then trying to think positively and hope for the best.
Anyways we (3 people who did not get the letter) waited for the whole week and then called the HR person in the company and he said that he had sent it to all of us and he did not know what the problem is. He said he would send scan the letter and send it through mail. I asked him if I could come to the company and collect the letter personally and he agreed so I went there and luckily the letter had reached back the company as it was not delivered and I got the original copies. But the joining date was not mentioned in the letter it just said as per the date agreed….. We asked the HR about it and he said he would be calling us in the first week of May and informing us about it, tentatively it would be in first week of June. So we are a bit relaxed, but unless and until we start working we can’t we sure of our jobs so waiting for that day…..
I have still a month to go so I will be writing more…. That’s all for now friends
