Memorable weekend @ Banglore

Before starting, to my anna and anni , wish you a happy married life ๐Ÿ™‚

Went to Banglore for my cousin Brother’s marriage which went really well. Had a wonderful time with relatives after a long time. I always thought I had lots of kid cousin brothers and sisters. Now they are growing up really fast and a sad corollary is that I am growing too, which means I have to be more responsible and blah blah blah.

Also had the best of times with PK man, Donatello , Venkat , Thalaiva , Hari, Rajagopal and Alagu. Roamed around Brigade road and Garuda for some time and sweared many a times how costly the living is in banglore. By the way Donatello and Venkat are rocking big time in IISc, so much so that there are rumours in the college that there is a D.V.Raman(venkat’s full name abbrevated other wise ๐Ÿ˜› ) in the making.

Meanwhile our team LRSL for ACM-ICPC ( myself , abhilash and nutty ) qualified for the amrita regionals onsite round after some scene coding by nutty. This happened on same day of the marriage and it was actually kind of hectic being at two places at the same time. Looking forward for the Kerala trip in december where we will be particpating against some biggest programming minds of the country.

There were lots more to the weekend which is personal and might even be trivial. But the thing is all of them added up to a really awesome weekend

PS : updated to Intrepid Ibex and obviously it rocks ๐Ÿ™‚ Had some hiccoughs with the installation because of my hard disk getting older, but then went for a full format and its working like a charm now ๐Ÿ™‚

I got a Job !

I got a job in Yahoo! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks everyone for wishing and helping for me.ย  In fact the whole job getting thing hasn’t sunk in yet.
Some of the messages like ” Good luck , Little one “, “Dude all the best , dont worry abt results and give the best shot’ and ” dei u will clear , do it nice ” , still rings in me ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: Special thanks to all my wing mates who took extra care that I get enough bumps ๐Ÿ˜›

You know what ? I was there when hari did this motd change , but then it made not muchย  of an impression! But now it brings a lot of happy & funny memories ! Did not want to miss it later , if some one<most probably me> reinstalls the codelabs server:P

The summer holidays it was !

Well , another end of holidays ! This time for the first time , I wanted to be free , thoughtless , not bothered about anything, well I _wanted_ to be and It seems you dont get always what you want ๐Ÿ™‚

So I had been doing a lots of stuff , or the same things again and again , as usual ! Here is a small gist of people places , stuff that had kept me occupied !

House MD –ย  Anjuta – OSP – Finch – elinks – IIT Alak hostel – basera dinner – Besant nagar beach – football with the kutti pasangaย  there – Tiffany’s sambar vadai and Idly – IIT Madras Nueral networks Lab – The funny team there – the invisible brother – the beggar – the prank – water cooler-ย  – the chronicles of the satya , monkey and the icecream – kakarat and the aftermath – STD calls to hari – Banglore trip – Google Banglore : the big monitors , the microkitchen , the playroom – Yahoo! : foozballย  – Alagu’s room and the timeless/precious mokka there (Man i miss it ! ) – Taggy’s truce – some blessed road in banglore ๐Ÿ˜› – Gopi and gang’s room in banglore – falling in love with django – Big bang theory – Star dust – Murugan Idly shop – MTC buses and footboarding –ย  Crooked house – Brida – jeeves- the never ending / never satisfying placement preps – The surgery in my toe – lunch and cards at Hari’s home – being the accountant of a settled young man – the back stabbing and the aftermath – the wierd kids – the useless and pathetic two !

There are lots and lots more which I dont even remember properly ! All of it happened in a span of one month or so.

Hope you guys/girls (well I am just being optimistic :D)ย  had a nice holidays too ! see you in college soon ๐Ÿ™‚
