Training tales: Meeting my cousin, Late night chats

November 16, 2009

When I went to my training I have never thought I will meet my cousin brother there even though my mom has told that my cousin was selected for my company I never thought I will meet him. But I met him in the second week of my training. Actually the training is on developing our communication skills and the first thing we have to do is go around the room and introduce ourselves to the other people(Except the 7 college mates I don’t know any of them while reaching there). So afterΒ introducingΒ myself to 2 or 3, we both started to introduce and by that time he started to ask about where I am living and do you know them?? like that. Then only I remembered, its him. The last time I have met is, when I was studying in 5th Standard. So my memory can’t be blamed for not remembering instantaneously. We had a good chat by that day itself.

After that we used to frequent to lunch and dinner together many a times. And had a great time too even though we had totally different interests. He never keeps his eyes open max. of after 11 and I always used to roam around actively till 3. I don’t think he ever came to playground while my half of the training days were spent in it. Its also really great that I am back to Chennai after a little trip to Pune and we had our lunch together here also but its been a long time since we have eaten together as my shift timings(afternoon shift) were never changed for last 8 months or so 😦

Late night Chats:

As I have already said, its a kind of hostel life for me. So late night chats are really a part of it. All the night we are all will group together in one room and used to talk about everything. With lot of cricket were played by India those days we were not short of topic any day. And there is always cinema to discuss about. All the music channels will be playing some or other songs and talks will be on actor, actresses and directors. And also the leg pulling of Β the fans of the actors will happen. And the worst thing is when we are about to switch off the TV, a beautiful song will be played and again we will be chatting for another 30 minutes.

Mostly all these chats will happen in Room no. 476 or 495 where the friends are came from KSR college.

One night the talk went for a long time and one of our friend Mr.RV started to move to his room.

Me: Why are you going so soon da?

He: In sometime, its going to dawn da.

And the clock is showing 2:50 AM. And we had classes by next day morning 9 AM. Phew!! those were the days.

PS: Only one post is left in this series, and it will be on the day I finished my training πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
