Her last moments…

Posted by AtPeace on October 28, 2005

*A true story*

I watched in agony as the light flickered out of her eyes. ‘Can’t you please do something?’, she seemed to ask me pleadingly… Oh, how I wished I could!! But the fact was glaring at me in the face. She had but a few moments to live and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. And I chose to do the only thing that was left – stay with her for her final moments.

One of my most favourite songs…!!!

sillendra theepori ondru..
silu silu siluvena kulu kulu kuluvena sara sara saravena paravudhu nenjil parthaaya..
idho un kaadhalan endru viru viru viruvena gala gala galavena adi mana veligalil oru nadhi nagarudhu kettaya…
un meththai mel thalai saaigiren… uyir ennaye thinnudhe..
un aadaigal naan soodinen… ennenavo pannudhe…
thithikudhe… thithikudhe…

kanna un kaalani ulle… en kaalgal naan serpadhum…
kann moodi naan saaivadhum… kanavodu naan thoivadhum..
kanna un kaalurai ulle.. en kaigal naan thoipadhum…
ulloora then paaivadhum… uyirodu naan theivadhum…

muthu payyan theneer undu… micham veitha koppaigalum..
thanga kaigal unnum podhu… thattil patta regaigalum..
mookin mele mugamidum… kobangalum…

thithikudhe… thithikudhe…

Anbe un punnagai kandu.. enakaaga thaan endru..
Iravodu naan erivadhum… pagalodu naan uraivadhum…
nee vazhum arai dhanil nindru… un vaasam naasiyil undu…
nurai eeral poo malarvadhum… noi kondu naan azhuvadhum..

akkam pakkam nottam vittu… aalai thinnum parvaigalum…
neril kandu unmail solla… nenjil muttum varthaigalum…
maarbai sudum thoorangalil swasangalum…

thithikudhe… thithikudhe…

Movie : Thithukudhe
Music : Vidyasagar
Singer : Sujatha

En soga kadhai…

Posted by AtPeace on October 26, 2005

Swamped with work for the last couple of weeks, I was unable to visit other blogs at all, let alone write a new post… I honestly didn’t (and don’t) mind the work, even though it was killing at times. But the worst part was I had to miss the afternoon training sessions at another office. Cha, if you thought I was worried about missing the training, you can’t be more mistaken. The whole point is they serve the most toothsome food there and we had all been looking forward to letting ourselves loose. Every single day, for the past three days, I have been setting out to TIDEL under the hope that I’ll make it for the training at least that afternoon. But as fate would have it, I have been unable to make it to the training.

Which meant – lunch at Foodcourt.

My Kinda Travelogue – Part 2

Posted by AtPeace on October 17, 2005

I gaped at Prince, open-mouthed, as he stepped over the connector. ‘Idhu namma train illa, erangunga’, he bustled around, hastening everyone and total pandemonium ensued. And before we could rally around, the compartment door had been opened and a few people disembarked – I should say jumped. Cos there wasn’t any platform for them to gaily step onto. The train had long past moved from the station and there was only a slope with plants growing alongside. Trust me when I say all of this happened real quick. I don’t wish to go into any more detail. Suffice to say that we tried to drive sense into Prince that you don’t go about pulling chains in running trains and jumping out wherever you please. And failed. But the elusive TTR eventually showed up and those who had got down were made to get back on the train. Terrible.

Idhellam vettEEEs vazhkaila sagajamappa…

Posted by AtPeace on October 16, 2005

Final year. Another day. Another episode. It was lunchtime and we guys had just finished eating lunch. We were lazing around, yapping when I heard a scuffle to my right. (I used to sit the last but one bench and N’s gang used to sit on the bench to my right.)

My Kinda Travelogue – Part 1

Posted by AtPeace on October 15, 2005

The auto screeched to a stop to let the bus pass by. As I watched the volvo ambling across carrying loads of people happily reclining in it, there was a familiar ache in the heart – the yearning to travel. *sigh* When was the last time I went on a tour? I think back… Not counting the US trip, well, I think we last went in the beginning of March to Coorg. What a trip that was! Great place and lovely company… really wish we guys can go again somewhere. *sigh* Kerala, probably… Would love to go there again… I smile involuntarily as I begin reminiscing about my past tours… there are too many memorable experiences… in fact, every one of them was memorable in a way. And there is something I can never forget about every single trip I have ever been on in my life – fights, reconciliations, tears, laughter, friendships being sworn, relationships lying shattered, lonely hearts, broken hearts, kenjals, konjals, ottals, the songs, the dances… *sigh* someday, I’d write them all down.

However, for some vague reason (maybe it’s because this one’s not got much of an emotional value to it), I’m now going to write about one relatively recent trip that my team went on. To attend Chandru’s wedding in Trichy last year. (Only Deepti, Sang and I belonged to the same team, so the rest of my gang – Karthik, Prasanna, Muthu etc – won’t figure in this story. And our protagonist Prince is a teammate.) Hmmm… this is a weird story… in the sense that the story is not about the wedding or our visit to Mukkombu or Srirangam… it’s the travel – the train journey – that I am going to relate now.

I had posted something about Managers this afternoon and most of humanity seemed worried… and I had quite a lot of people advising me to take it off. *shrug* And for once, I’m taking people’s advice… After all, it isn’t an important post… nor is it smth close to my heart… so, well, I’ve taken it off…

Maybe I should change my blog definition of ‘… I scribble what I please…’


PS: I’m gonna post smth else to get over this….

Between the Devil and the Deep Sea (Boulder Trip) – Part 2

Posted by AtPeace on October 12, 2005

(The first part is here.)

I dunno if it was Aditya or Gopi who spotted the Zapata Falls on the map, a little distance away from the Sand Dunes. None of them had been there before and we decided to stop over for some time. The road that led to the falls seemed an unmotorable stretch of road, with gravel and loose stones on the path, like they show in those ads for SUVs. Only, this was much worse. Huthas’s car is anything but a SUV and he hesitated quite a bit before driving up the path. I don’t blame him. I’d have refused to drive my car up the road. (Not that I have a car. Nor do I know driving. Hehe…) Anyways, we ambled along at smth like 10mph, as though we had all the time on earth. Thankfully, we soon reached a properly laid piece of road and H parked his car in the parking lot there.

Bye bye….

Posted by AtPeace on October 7, 2005

Yeee… Me’s off to Bangalore tonight. For the ARR concert, of course. After my US trip in July, haven’t been anywhere. Looking forward to this trip for that reason, amongst several others. Sadly though, this time we’re very few in number. *shrug* Let’s hope it doesn’t make much of a difference to the fun we’re gonna have.

And I have a team outing today. We’re off for lunch somewhere in ECR. Forgot where…. Hehe… The lunch will be, of course, followed by the usual OB adichifying (no, I didn’t mean work… I was referring to those games or whatever). Anyways, let’s see how it turns out!

That’s it then. Cya people. Take care and enjoy your weekend. Will be back on Monday, with loads of pictures and yarns of stories to share.

Update : Just back to office from the team outing. Had looooads of fun. Pics and stories later!!!

Harish, in case you’re reading this… buhahaha… naan innum marakala. Unakku confirmed-a uruttu kattai dhan. Concert-il sandhippom.

Vijai, rendu naal thangai oor la illana odane, thalai kaal theriyama aadadha. Please poruppa padikaraa vazhiya paru.

Scudie, enga anna va kann kalangama pathukaradhu un kaila dhan iruku… hehe…

An official mail was sent out to my team yesterday indicating the upcoming change in my team structure, describing our new roles. C told me about my new roles last week and one of them is something I still can’t believe I have got. Although it is an indication of the confidence my PM has in me (and I’m truly gratified), I am a little apprehensive too. Anyways, once I got the mail and read through the details, I forwarded it to my friends gang, as is my practice with any good news. Everyone replied with congratulatory mails, but I feel this reply from Vijai‘s the best. I read it first thing this morning and it has made my day. Check out the mail, esp the parts in italics. 🙂

PS: “indha vayadhil thondrum theeya sindhanaigalil manadhai alaipaaya vidaamal ” – apdina enna na…?

* – No, Scudie, I didn’t mean you. I meant Vijai.
