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 'Little Miss

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut) wit
