Footprints 2006

It was a trip down the memory lane when I visited the IIMI campus for the alumni meet. Though the meet was just for the weekend, the travel from Chennai swallowed about 1.5 days on either side making it a near 5 day vacation. It is not that great travelling for such long durations and waiting for greater than 6 hours at a station for the delayed train. But it was worth it. The happiness of meeting friends and the vellagiri playing cards in the train were a true breather from the corporate life.

The souls who were awake at the unearthly time at which we reached Indore would have been shocked by my first question, "Where are the badminton rackets?". But then, some things and some people never change What has changed though is the new construction that has obstructed our view from the mess. Some of the table top mountains are not visible anymore from the lovely marooned hill top.

It was refreshing to meet the new set of students in the campus. I only wish they stop asking questions like, "Do you have work in an IT company?" Ofcourse we do. No one pays for doing nothing. An IT job does have its ups and downs with periods of no work and periods of heavy duty stuff. The guys who are on their slack period seem to project the image that everyone in the IT sector is vela. But then I have been here and seen a sizable sample to argue otherwise. That reminds me.... I should get back to work now

Bingo.. I think people who don't have work to do end up speaking a lot to others simply coz they have the time to do so. I came in 2 months back into an extremely active account with the mos challenging client (according to folks here) and I just had 3 relaxed days. Otherwise its always been late days and pressure coooker life.

Mebbe Im biased coz I never was even looking at non-IT jobs even in my wildest and remotest dreams.

Anyway, really speaking, why should we care?

Hey Ram

Good to hear that you went back to the good ol' hill-top. All you lucky bums from CTS got to go there simply coz the company sponsored your train tickets and even went as far as giving you leave.

In any case, am back to blogging with a vengeance. So please do visit and enrich my blog with your comments.
