What Does Your Driving Say About You?

You Are a Polite Driver

You are generally an easy going, laid back person. However, you can't help but feel a little jealous and competitive sometimes!

You are always increasing your awareness of the world around you. You are a life long learner.

You'd like to think you're a fair person, but you occasionally think you deserve a special kind of justice.

You are a calm, peaceful person. You realize that arguments are only temporary, and you try to give people the benefit of the doubt.

You have mixed feelings about authority figures. You understand their place, but you believe their power needs to be in check.

You are not a very focused person. You have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time!

You feel responsible for other people to an extent, but you believe that it's ultimately each person for him or herself.

Your ego is normally in check, but sometimes you get a bit egotistical. You tend to be a little self-important at times.

What's Your Power Element?

Your Power Element is Water

Your power colors: blue and aqua

Your energy: deep

Your season: winter

Like the ocean, you evoke deep feelings and passion.

You have an emotional, sensitive, and spiritual soul.

A bit mysterious, you tend to be quiet when you are working out a problem.

You need your alone time, so that you can think and dream.

The Engaged Voter!

In the inner silence that i live in,

I live many a thousand billion dreams.

I see people varyingly rich & poor,

Rich by arrogance & miser as a giver.

Vicious smiles are exchanged so fast,

Insane deeds also happen equally vast.

Amazing vividity that my country displays,

I see myself miles far behind the real display.

People bring sorrowful happiness to other's life,

Keep on repenting at their past errors times infiinte.

Lets clean this poison all down the drain,

Hoping innovation and peace be restored in our brain.

Democracy is every Indian's right though opted by few

Lets rush to vote for our favorite leader contesting in the queue!

Jai Hind!

Adios Amigos`

At the onset of May, i got a pleasant surprise!!
A farewell treat from my team-mates!!

Well, this could imply many a things to the readers; the most striking being a job loss!
but surprisingly, it was just the opposite; the higher management decided to move me to some other project because of resource crunch!!

I was overwhelmed to see how the farewell was so properly managed; my manager gave me a big Good Luck card holding so many wishes inside from my (ex)-team mates! She manages everything so well, be it work, team or project deadlines.

Life is surely a package of strange things; 2 months back i was so overloaded with work that i even thought of leaving the IT industry; but gradually working harder became a part of my daily life!

Looks like even God knows that i love writing documents; in my last project i compiled many a docs; i m really looking forward to great deal of coding in my next project, Amen!!

I got great review comments frommy seniors too that the documents could have been written a dozen times better. I agree with them too, but my big bottleneck were the strict timelines in which i had to finish crucial activities. But then i can also see this as an opportunity, rather than doing nothing to improve at my end.

I do read my friends' blogs but don't get quality time these days to give thoughtful comments. Wish i do full justice from my side to their thoughts soon.

Also when i hear about my well wishers losing their jobs or doing things they dont relish; i am forced to think how long will this situation last.

Yesterday's treat also reminded me of another farewell party given my by dearie friends when i was about to leave for Duesseldorf!

2007 was the most special year to me; i loved being in Duesseldorf.

Yesterday some new joinees in our team asked me if they will also get a similar chance to be in Europe?

I wish they get one; but probability is too low as Europeans have also started realising that working from India is more economical.I hope life will unwrap some other kind of surprises for them.

So here i am wishing golden good bye to the golden team i worked with for a golden period of last 3 months..

Life is fair, life is unfair too,

Moments are green, at time so lean,

Oportunities come as fast as they bequeath,

Life takes surprise birth and also at the drop of a hat leaves,

But the goodbye wave often swirls and bends,

For something in it stays till the end..

Motivating us to stretch farther till the perceived end..

They say everything is round,

We come again to catch what we could' nt have earlier found,

Miles far we may have reached in,

But our roots will call us to completely dissolve in,

Howsoever bad today i may have expressed my feeling,

But its an old goodbye that still keeps on echoing!
