Training tales: And it came to an end
‘Every good thing comes to an end’ – So as my training came to an end by 23rd November, 2007. But its expected. And its also good that it has ended while I am enjoying it. Else I couldn’t have remember and savor those moments this much.
I always wanted to be on my own and I badly missed the hostel life during my college days. So this came as a real breather. But I had some comfort here with fully furnished room which will be cleaned up daily(surely not by me), the food courts within campus and some good hotels just outside the campus. So I had all the time in the world to do what I like other than learning programming. Most importantly the room is within my office campus. In a way I become very lazy too. For the class by 9, except for the first week I wake up only by 8 or 8:15. At that time mostly my roommate would have left the room. So I don’t have to rush and had enough time to get ready.
And what made this training phase more interesting is, all of us were just out of college and with the same sort of behaviour we continued to interact between us. So it is just a matter of time to get mingled with all of them and out of 420 people in our batch, each one would have known at least half of them. With each of our rooms so near, we used to frequent all others room.
The cycle within the campus is another superb thing. We could find cycle anywhere and can reach any place in a jiffy. The first day, I have entered the campus, I am fully excited to see such a big campus but later only I have learned even if I walk I could round-up the campus within 30 minutes. In the campus there was a food court which operated with fresh menu from midnight for the BPO employees. I always loved the paratha which will be served hot with Egg burji by that time.
Sundays, another blissful day. There is no question of waking up before 11. So after skimming through the channels we will start to a Andhra mess which is a little far away from the campus. They used to serve unlimited meals just for Rs.35. That is what can be called as heaven. First they will serve rice with dal powder with ghee. Wowie… I used to eat and eat for 2 rounds that itself. Then the usual stuffs of sambar, rasam and curd. The side dish which they will serve also very good. On the top of it, the best is, their service. I am planning to go to bangalore next month. So if at all I am there by lunch time, I will go there for sure. Actually we have tried out all the good restaurants around the campus. More than the ones inside the campus, the hotels in the outside are really superb.
There was a little pond just near by the building in which our training took place. There were lot of fishes too. Its a cool thing sit near that pond and talking after the lunch. We used to sit there most of the times for atleast 10 minutes. Such a nice place to spend. Two pedal boats were also available there but I have float in that for only one time.
If the above things are looked good, the most important reason is the kind of people who were with me and I always love to remember them for all those beautiful moments they have given to me to rejoice even after 2 years. Unfortunately, by the last day I am really sad more for the posting I have got in Pune more than the end of the training. In a way, the end of training is really good as how long can I write exams and how long company can provide salary to me without any productivity??? 😀 😀 All in all, its a great journey for 4 months 🙂
