Exam Fever!
2009-06-05 06:44:00
It’s 10:00 AM already, and I’m late for the exam. It feels weird to be back in exam mode. You know how you get that sinking feeling just before walking into the exam because you don’t know anything about the subject? I thought I’d left that feeling behind when I finished my Engineering, but apparently, ...

2009-05-03 15:57:00
So here I am at ISB. It’s been a fun-filled 3 weeks, but now that the classes ave started, I seem to back in those college days where everything is going over my head. But first things first. I used to think “diversity” is oversold at ISB, it can’t really be all that diverse. But, to ...

Here in Whitefield, Bangalore, the roads are totally jammed all the time. There is a very small road that leads towards ITPL and much of the IT companies.

Shopping Strategies
2009-03-07 17:54:00
Man, I hate shopping. I feel so uncomfortable in a store that I often compare myself to prisoners of war and start thinking of what strategies they must have used to get over their tortourous environment. But shopping is an inevitable exercise, even for me, so I have adapted some strategies to overcome the near-death-experience feeling ...

All characters in this story are fictional. Any resemblance to persons living in Bangalore is entirely co-incidental and non-intentional. There.

Preparing for ISB!
2009-03-03 14:20:00
Well, now that I have decided that I will be going to ISB, I thought I might start some preparation for my MBA course. People have told me that it is a very hectic course, so some preparation might be in order. To that effect, I went and bought a couple of books, a scientific calculator ...
Some Updates!
2009-02-27 14:30:00
I was sitting at work today when one of the greatest phenomenons of modern times happened. It was the 27th of February, the last working day of the month. It is that time of the month when your employer acknowledges your existence, through a directed movement of electrons through the internet and the banking system, transfers ...

The Return Of Stupidity!
2009-02-26 07:16:00
It is well known that the internet is full of nonsense. Most web pages, comments and blogs  are full of rants and extra ordinary acts of stupidity. I mean, I don’t understand how the internet takes all this crap from humans? Don’t the electrons sigh and weep when they see all the kinds of nonsense bloggers these days ...

2008-05-12 03:58:00
I get back from work one day and notice that the wife is in a very good mood. She’s singing and all, and generally in a happy mood. This instinctively puts me on the defensive, I smell a trap. But even after some time, when I don’t get assigned to cut tomatoes, I’m begin to ...

There comes a time in every married man’s life that he is faced with the difficult prospect of having to cut tomatoes. If you have had any experience with vegetables, you’ll know it is a painful and difficult experience. I’m sure making someone cut violates some fundamental human rights, but I’ve not been able to ...

Moral Dilemma
2008-04-14 19:10:00
I’ve recently been presented with a very serious moral dilemma. At office, a new gym recently opened this week, and it is on the same floor as my desk is. But that’s not the problem. I have enough will power to resist the nudges and bribes that my team mates have been offering me to ...

2008-04-07 20:07:00
It’s nearly one year since the wedding day, and it has been a very interesting learning experience for me. I have made the startling discovery that there is a secret code-language called “wifeese” that the wife speaks. It sounds and has words just like regular language, but has hidden meanings that take a lot of ...
Personality Development!
2008-04-06 14:01:00
Back when I was in school, maybe 5th standard, the teachers were always trying to “Develop My Personality ”. For some reason, they believed that everyone should be an “all-rounder”, and my complete lack of mastery in even one of their standard fields (marks-scoring, drawing and a bunch of other inconsequential fields) must have been worrying ...

Yet Another Plan to avoid Movies
2008-03-29 09:35:00
Regular readers will know that I’ve been desperately trying to avoid watching movies. My several previous plans (plan 1, plan 2, plan 3) have not been very successful, and even my writing harsh reviews (Race, Saawariya, Om Shanti Om) have not done anything. Things were getting desperate for me when it seemed inevitable that we ...

The Infinity of Shoes

The Universe behaves in very mysterious ways, and Women even more so. There are several things I don’t understand about this world - Theoretical particle physics, Aristotle’s Philosophy and why women buy so many shoes. I’ve researched the problem extensively, and I’ve developed my own explanation to understand the freakiest of all phenomenon - Why ...

The adventures of Dabhishek!

Back in college, I knew this fellow called Dabhishek. What he was doing in an engineering course was beyond me, and in many ways it was beyond him too. He was very absent minded, but equally determined to get through Engineering, even though I suspect he didn’t really care so much about computer science. The universe ...
