Just a Hi to all you buddies.....

Please don't get scared. May be many of you are thinking what happened to me and why am I writing here. But being a silent spectator in this blog, I suddenly thought of coming out of the grave and write something about me. After all, this blog binds us all.

Aall is well in Bangalore. Me and Shayon are only two here a I seriously wish that I will be able to meet few of you here very soon. On my job front, everything is smooth. On my personal front also everything is cool. Finally I became the proud owner of my bike. My EMIs for the bike completed last month and now RTO has stamped that it is my sweet bike and ICICI has nothing to do with the bike.

Well, few days back I bought three books. Though most of you know that the only books that I buy are related to computers but this time all the three books are related to management. The list goes below:
1) the One minute manager
2) Fish
3) Tipping Point

All three are wonderful books and I suggest all of you to read them.
'the One minute manager' tells about how to become a effective manger. Here manger refers to not only managing people but managing self. This book says that if you can manage yourself well then all will be well for you. It's a great read and just for 125 bucks it a great buy. I seriously loved it.

'Fish' tells you how to boost your morals and how to make your workplace more workable :-). How to enjoy the work which most of the time is not enjoyable for most of us. It takes example of a American fish market for explaining things. Wonderful!!! and its just 100 bucks.

The last one is 'Tipping Point'. Its tag line says 'How little things can make a big difference'. It starts with an example of Hush Puppies. A little known brand in India but is renowned in America and other parts of world. I talks about how the then dying brand suddenly revived itself and went on becoming one of the world's most famous brand. Its costs 225 bucks and is also a great buy.

Request you all to read these three books and share your reviews.

Ok, enough for today. Don't know when I will again write. But you can expect soon....Oh one more thing please visit my personal blog as one of my new year resolution is to bring it to life again. Though it is mostly technical but still Sakshi, you are always welcome :-).

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
