Ate first mango of this year yesterday night. R gave one to me, she had got it from NJ.
Smell of mango brings back memories.

Summer vacations at grand parents place,climbing trees,playing with cousins,reading lots of comic books etc was part of growing up till teens. Then got busy with college and tuitions and studies. Yet papa used to bring lots of mangos from market. One year he purchased more than 50 kilos of mangos :) whole house smelt of mangos. Iam not major mango fan as I like jack fruits more. Yet would like to eat the sweet ones. Last year didn't eat mangos as I was feeling home sick and lonely(first time away from home u see) as they would bring back vivid memories.
This year also was planning to do the same thing but didn't want to refuse when R offered.
The smell reminded me of my good old days with my dad around. How we made those "rasayanas" on Sunday mornings with dosas, it reminded me of my moms affection towards mangoes and how she used to sip the seed of it and we used to make fun of her saying "it would get stuck in the throat " or "the seed is pleading you to stop".
I guess no matter where you are past comes back and haunts you, in the form of words,smells,music,clothes.......
awww why am I so observant and emotional!!! how I wish I had heart of stone that would not pain .I guess its all part of being a human rather being a girl.

Me,myself and machine

It was raining heavily outside. Dark clouds gathered in the sky and nature was in its ominous best. I took a break from my work and went to the pantry to grab a cup of coffee. I had a sip and went near the window to see the rain pouring down heavily outside the glass structure. I was inside our huge office building, unruffled by even the fierceness of the nature. Through the heavy transparent glass, I could see a small girl trying to hold on to her umbrella which the wind was snatching away from her. I felt sorry for the girl, and was happy that I was not in a similar pathetic situation. Yes. I take pride for the fact that I am a software engineer. . I have everything which a common man would envy; money, status, respect, you name it I have it. I always wanted to be software professional and here I am, working for one of the best firms in the world. But then, am I really happy? Now, I could see an imprint of my palm on the other glass window, through which I reminisced my past, basked in the warmth of the sun shine.

My childhood was so much of fun. I vividly remember those rainy days, when I hugged my mother tightly during sleeping listening to all the stories told by her. Now, I have a big house here, but then it is just a house, not a home. My parents are pretty far away from me now. I have a cell phone to talk to them everyday, but then I really miss those dinners which I had with my family everyday. I could easily afford to taste all the different cuisines these days, but the best of food there, lack the love and affection which is present in the food prepared by my mother.

I threw a lavish party for my colleagues for my birthday, but then they would never replace the birthdays when my friends secretly brought a cake and at the end, half of the cake would have ended up on my face. The couple of hundred bucks that u save for a long period just to give a treat to your friends in the road side chat shop can never give the pleasure even after spending a few thousand bucks these days.

The scene of me crying and refusing to have dinner on the day when I fought with my best friend came to my mind. Today, she has gone far away from me, taking away my love and with it my life, but I am sitting and coding here with a false smile on my face. Everyday I meet new people, but then I long ceased to make a new friend.

It’s true that I have a lot of things now. I have a nice bed, but no time to sleep. Lots of money, but no friends to spend it with. The latest designer clothes, but a worn out body. Quite a few to flirt, but no one to love. Awards for technical excellence, but no reward for the crave for peaceful ambience. A confident demeanor, but a reluctant and apathetic mind. Full of rain, but no sunshine even in the farthest distance.

Now, I could see the small girl on the road enjoying in the rain with her umbrella firmly in her grip. She might not have all the comforts which I have, but then she has the innocence and fun which I lost a long time back. I have decided to come out of this false fantasy, even if it is at the expense of losing the tap of the software engineer. I am going to again enjoy my life. I am going to go out in the rain and play with the small kid now. I removed my tie, and went near my computer to shut it down. Just then, I saw a new mail alert in my mail box. I slowly opened outlook and I found a message from my manager with an attachment saying that there was a critical defect in the code and I have to fix it soon. I convinced myself that I am not going to get bogged down again by these pressures and stick to my decision. I ignored the mail and went to the rest room. After a couple of minutes, the software engineer in me came out, his shirt tucked in with the perfect tie knot, sat before the computer, and started typing,


I am looking into the defect and will send the patch files before EOD.


FOUR WHEELER driving tutorial

It all happens in this industry...........

A real nice one.....

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is backagain. So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in itsmouth. He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please? The dog has money in its mouth, as well."The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten dollar notethere. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag,placing it in the dog's mouth. The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, he decides to shut the shop and follow the dog.So off he goes. The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to alevel crossing; the dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button. Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn.They do, and it walks across the road, with the butcher following himall the way. The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg upand gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus. The dog thenshows a ticket which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor. Thebutcher is nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other passengers inthe bus. The dog then sits near the driver's seat looking outside. Assoon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, itjumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close to the stop. It opens the big Iron Gate and rushes inside towards the door. As itapproaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against itseveral times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door. The butcherwatches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at him. The butcher surprised withthis, runs up, and stops the guy. "What in heaven's name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could beon TV, for the life of me! "To which the guy responds: "You call this clever? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog'sforgotten his key."

Moral of the story.....You may continue to exceed on lookers expectations but shall always fallshort of the boss' expectations. It's a dog's life after all.....

Was going through comments by nimmava :) when he said its an shortcoming by tunga, MS needs to do something etc etc. It just hit to me!! That I might be having those fonts on my MS word!!!!Well I was able to see that it did support, but I guess key board is not mapped for it hence was not able to type in it. Then it occurred to me "Insert --> Symbol" might work!! as it already has few pre fonts(or whatever) After permutation n combination of symbols, this was close to what I could come to :) My name "ಎನಿಘಮಾ" woww yipee
