Christian . . .

Workplace of our times!!!

I had a severe backpain this evening. So I went for a "world exploration" inside my office. After a year of joining the company I was thus forced to take some paths other than the ones that lead to restroom, cafeteria and the main exit. I dont even know whether there are multiple routes to these "popular destinations". I use the ones which sudhakar incidently taught me during my one week KT (Knowledge Transfer) session. "Success kills creativity" - I never tried if there where shorter paths leading to these destinations. I was happy and contented with the "hassle free" knowledge I earned.

Because of the wall right next to my cube I always had a feeling that the world ends there. No , the world is big. The world is a big maze. The maze is built of big boxes in which people live. All boxes are almost the same but contain different kinds of people. All boxes are equal. But some are more equal because of the extra equality these box-people enjoy. But equals are always equal. Some are bustling world-HQ of business. Some are graveyards. Some are funny. Some are crazy. And some are ... Idont know.

I passed through the aisle-like passways and mid-town style crossroads. Matrin Freeman, Luther Marcus, McNamera,Srinivasaveloru, Gomas, Balan Nayar, Kaur, Davison, Dereus, MikeE Corrie, Thomas Bigman, Velmurugan . . . Different namesplates (that speak a lot about its owners) are fixed on each cube to remind you that it is not your cube.

Some cubes are like garden. There are trees in it. Flowers, potted plants and small bonsai forests fill the cubes. Some are like exibition halls. They are filled with posters and collectables concerning one particular subject. We can easilyfind showcases featuring The American Navy, WWE , African Safari, POP/RAPMusic, Kung Fu, World Trade Centre and what not.

Some cubes are like cafeteria. They have starbucks coffeemakers, snacks, softdrinks, ready-to-eat meals , cups, mugs, plates, cutlery and stuff like that. I dont know why but the People who live in them tend to be nice and fat. Some of them even have posters of local weight watchers club. Now some others are like department stores. They have everything from childrens tooth brush to mens watches. Some are neat ,clean and dull, some are like pharmacy and some are like caves witha variety of objects of archeological intrest. I saw even cubes that can match actual beauty parolors, coffee shops and churches. The churches are amazing and often match the St. Peters Basilica. One thing I noticed was that you can always find the pictures of her kids in a mothers cube.

Some cubes are definitely male. Strong, tough and simple. Some are female. Lot of decorations and noisy.

Oh man . . . I lost my way. I got to get back to my cube before the cameras and the RF tag readers detect security anomalies and ask for fighter planes to shoot me down.

My Adages

Some of my the important sayings George Philip said during his times. Many will become the proverbs in future.

"All the good things on this earth are free. Air, water, google..."

"Todays Fix, Tomorrows Bug"

"MY Adages" are not growing fast enough. So I thought I will add "Sayings I like". They explains my view point regarding the complex and elusive matters of this big world. I have tried to include the name of the owner of the brain which put these words together first...

* Put all your eggs in one basket, and then watch that basket well (Andrew Carnegie / Mark Twain??)

* Kadalile thira adangiyittu vanchi erakkamennu vicharichal pattumo?

* Sthree oru kundrappibosotto anu (Bashir)

* Chinthichal Oru Anthom Illa , Chinthichillel oru kunthom illa

George Philip, Elavatta.

Namma Shingara Chennai!!


After I made up my mind to accept the offer from futuresoft I decided to gather some fundas about Chennai. Oru sada software engineer enna nilayil najn google search nadathi. keywords: "introduction chennai". I was not "feeling lucky" but I was lucky. Da kidakunnu first pageil thanne chennaiye patti ulla futuresoftinte abhiprayam. (

Click panniyachu......kandu...vayichu...istapettu.....kollam...ummmmmm

Angane najan chennaiil ethi....namma shingara chennai...

I tried to forget the stories about chennai that dennis (my schoolmates name has been altered so that he wont be able to trace me if he happens to read this blog. ) told me about. Dennis was famous, or rather infamous as an incorrigible, congenital, unscrupulous and a creative liar. It was school days, when the world was so big, and had so many secrets. But later in my life I have met many people who are worthy enough to drive the boat he was in. So now I wont call him a lier - he was just a glib gibber..

Poor me!! This guy told me that his father was once appointed as the head (????) of The Chennai. When the Head (chennai thalivar, CT) came to Chennai he found out that all the streets where full of BM. So CT brought some swines from streets of nearby districts and deployed them in the streets of Chennai. They ate all the BM and thus the chennai roards wad cleaned during CTs tenure. At the end CT made ham-burger out of these poor animals and gave it for free to bakeries in Chennai (Ada paaavii..... I have never seen a bakery in Chennai where you will get good ham-burger. Chennai bakeries are anandavilasam or madavavilasam or etc etc pure (poor) vegetarian bakeries . This great idea created a win-WIN-win situation. The near by street authorities (???) was very happy because the swines where killed. Chennai Governor was happy because the droppings where removed. And needless to say the bakers where happy........thus goes our dennis puranams.......

But any way I didn’t expect to see any such disgusting sights ..ennalum ullil oru peedi :D .....some how I overcame all prejudices and preconceptions about her....and waited to see her in the Ananthapuri Express....
