A Blurry Image !!

    Childhood – Everybody has those blurry (black & white for some) images of their childhood. Back in those days life was simple.  I am not complaining that life has become complicated but It sure has become complicated compared  to what we had years back. The following is just me thinking really loud about how things were so innocent when I was young.

  • To start with lets take Television. We had just one network – Doordarashan. Remember that time when we had to finish our homework just in time for Ramayana or Vikram aur bedal !  , when the entire family sat in front of the GOD SENT INSTRUMENT to watch Chitrahar or Turning Point ?
  • Man I miss the smell of that adhesive which you find at Post Offices. It has the most crappiest look but I really liked the smell of it. Talking about Post Offices, I remember this time when my family gave a feast to this postman because he brought my dad’s passport through registered post.
  • All India Radio !! We had this old , big , black box which amazed me from the day I could understand what it really did. I used to sit hours together and tune into all the crazy radio networks.
  • Land line. Ah ! the good ol’ Land line. My granddad got his land line 10 years after he applied for it. 10 freaking years !! He was one of  the few people who owned a telephone connection at that time so my house was pretty much a telephone booth at one point of time.
  • Cinema – Cinema Hall’s weren’t that easily accessible during that  period. It should either be someones birthday or a family occasion.

There are million other things why I think life then was pretty simple. Early 90’s !! It was so innocent !!

Cheers

Where Art Thou – Part 2 !!

 I seriously don’t like writing a post like this but I can’t help it (You would understand the reason in just a minute) and this is not the first time I am writing a post like this. I remember writing something similar to this sometime back.

Still wondering what am I talking about ? Or perhaps wondering who the heck is this guy anyway ? Yes, I had been away for a long (long long) time but its not like I don’t want to blog anymore.  Its just that I haven’t had the time or the technology to blog. Lets take a moment and see what I have been upto lately.

  • After 4.7 Years of me working with my previous company, I decided to move on. I have joined another company. I will give you a clue. Its a big company. Its part of the BIG FOUR and it is great to work in here.
  • My Previous company blocked access to WordPress and Google Reader. Though that was not the reason why I decided to move to another company, that was the primary reason for me to write this post.
  • I shifted my place again. Remember the end of the era post ? (Tip : You can search for it using the search box). I shifted again. This time I got a bigger place . It is such a pain at wrong parts of your body to get a good house at Hyderabad these days. And I consider myself really lucky because not only did I find a big house, it is also furnished and the rent is really cheap.
  • Because I shifted my place, I still haven’t had the Internet connection setup. The Tata Broadband guys are worth another post. They are crazy when it comes to following the god damn customer service process.
  • Finally, it would not be fair on my part if I don’t say the truth. I had been little lazy to write anything here. But I think I am out of that phase now. So you guys are gonna see more of my rant in the coming weeks
