Miss you...dear flying machines!

Been almost 10 days now in namma bengaluru and enjoying the pleasant weather (compared to our good old Dubai's bisi bisi weather!) and mother's food..:-)Only one change that I observed in my place is that there is no flying machines now, in the skies, passing above my house! :-( This is bit sad for me as I love watching (still I love!!) these big man-made birds flying above my house! Jet, Sahara, SpiceJet, Kingfisher, British Airways, Lufthansa Jumbo B747, Thai Airways, Emirates, Srilankan Air, Singapore Airways Cargo Jumbo B747...the list continues and I miss them a lot!! Ever since the much awaited BIA has opened around a month back, all the 'sky traffic' has been diverted to north Bengaluru sector and hence we don't see any commercial/cargo machines now! (My house is situated in south of Bengaluru and most of the times, most of the aircrafts were passing above this sky zone). I still remember that sometimes in the evening, when I used to be up in the terrace, …

Take a break...

I am currently taking a break from work and having a week-off from the work! Hurray!! :-) Already 3 days went by but still 5 more days remaining, to start again a fresh way of life with a new project! Will be leaving to Ooty, the most famous hill station in South India, for couple of days! After 15 years, I will be visiting this hill station and I hope the weather stays cool (without rains!) so that we can roam around in this beautiful hill! :-)

Back to Bengaluru

Yeah, am back in namma bengaluru...lot of things to be shared, that happened in last couple of days! Firstly, had to leave Dubai with a BIG heart and lot of memories! My HP colleague took me to lunch at Ibn Battuta Mall, on my last working day and we had a good time having pasta and talking about general things. I will miss him a lot and think he too misses me! :) Back to office, I was waiting for my dear friend, to say bye to him. When the moment came, he was literally in tears (yes, I could see his eyes filled with tears!) and he hugged me and was very emotional. He misses his Big Brother (BB) a lot and I too miss him! After saying bye to my friends out there, I came to room to pack some remaining things and was feeling very nostalgic when I saw the room almost empty, without any things! This is the place where I stayed for around 6 months and now, all history and memories!! On 13th morning, one more emotional farewell was waiting and this time it was my daily taxi driver (Hayaz…

Just after 3.5 years...

Mobile phone (or Cell phone), the word and the object which is with everyone now-a-days, in all parts of the world, touched me in December 2001. It was my first buy from 'my own' money (Yeah, I started working from Nov 2001 and soon after getting first salary, I decided to buy a cell!) and the obvious choice at that time was the low-end but superb Nokia 3310. I had paid around INR 3000/- for this cell! Then, after few months this started to malfunction and then my dad gifted me the ultra less weight phone I have ever seen (even, the market has ever seen) - Panasonic GD93! This was a very beautiful phone with color screen and good 'phone' features! After using this for 2 months, I went to China on a project and my dad continued to use the cell. He too liked it so so much. In China, I decided to go for a trendy and a small phone, which I think I paid a very hefty price of USD 400 (~ INR 19000!) (Oct 2002). This expensive set was the Nokia 8850, with its metallic cover …

8 more days to go...

This time, by next week, I will be very anxiously waiting for my last working day here to get over (not that I am not anxious now, but next week it will be more!); as me and my wife are scheduled to fly out of Dubai on Friday noon flight! :-)So, still I have 8 more days to go and 1 weekend left in between...:O)

Less than 15 days to go...

In less than 15 days, we will be back in namma bengaluru, landing at the new Bengaluru International Airport...:-) Looking at the reports of constant rains in bengaluru, seems once we land there, we will definitely feel cold..why? We are staying in Dubai where the day temperature now is 45degrees and night temperature around 25-30degrees! So, compared to this place, namma bengaluru will be a cold heaven! Counting the days...:O)
