As I Pass by – 20/10/2010

October 20, 2010

I am back:

I don’t know how many times I have said this in the past 1 month. But this time I am truly back as I don’t any other thing to do specially. I had some exams till Friday so couldn’t been regular here and also not been to your blogs. Now everything was got over 🙂 I won’t be missing for atleast quite sometime.

Skewed Verdict:

I am not amused by the verdict given for the Ayodhya land dispute. This judgement was seem to be more concerned about the violent attacks and not about the right judgement. If this is how the judgements are going to be made then its absolutely foolish to have constituition and everything in our country. These kind of judgements will surely encourage the religious parties to have their say politically, which is a bad thing.

Something to Cheer:

I didn’t thought that we will organize the CWG without any mishaps but it has started and ended smoothly. Is this happened because of too much negative reports by the media? Whatever. Those reports shown the ugly faces of our politicians once again who at least took up some responsiblity to make the games successful which saved the face of our nation.

Also the another happiest thing is the no. of medals won by our players. We have claimed the 2nd position in medals tally which is something we can be proud about. Excluding swimming, I think we have won medals in every other category. Gagan Narang has proved to the Indian governement that he has all the qualities to receive the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award. I wish we award and honour him.

As I always say:

Leander Paes was the ‘Sachin’ of Indian tennis. In the last round of Davis cup Indians have faced the superior opponents in Brazil still emerged victorious. India was down by 0 – 2 by the first day leaving them to win all the 3 ties to enter the world group. And this trunaround from being downwas triggered by the doubles duo of Paes – Bhupathi. And India’s singles players Somdevvarman and Rohan Bopanna won their respective matches to take India to next stage. Sensational.

Helping hands:

Last week I had to finish a work related to my project in office. It required not only my effort but help from friends around me and people of other teams. Without hesitation everybody helped me immediately in whichever way they can. And I like to mention a guy called Andrews who I never met and that is the first time I have contacted him over phone. But he is ready to help me even though he had several things to do on that day. Another thing I have to mention is, this help is never going to get recorded or going to help them in their appraisal. But still they done it wholeheartedly. Thanks to them!!!

Month of Departures:

It seems like every very close friend of mine in office decided to move out by this month. Its been raining farewells for the last 2 weeks. Already 3 friends left, each one of them I consider very close, feel like being myself, can trust and share anything. The good thing is, they are moved on for better. It’s their aspiration. Even though they are just a call away, I badly miss their physical presence here in office. After seen them for more than 2 years continuously it gives a vague feeling when they are not around 😦

My cousin is leaving to onsite coming weekend which leaves only 2 or 3 people with whom I can share what I think. And they too almost queued up to leave now. This is where the life shows its cruel face. Hoping that this phase of departure will end soon.

    yea.. the CWG went off well and hopefully now the people responsible for creating so many issues are taken to task!

    Yea, I can understand about the leaving part – most of my friends are also leaving and moving on to different companies… So, the farewells have been tough, but exciting because of their bright new futures… 🙂

    Second! welcome back Kanagu 🙂 Regarding friends, it’s a part of life 🙂 Friends keep moving out of our life and new friends keep coming in.. never ending process 🙂 So dont feel sad, I am sure you will make new friends and still enjoy life like before.

    Its wonderful to see how ppl whom you’ve never met, came forward to help u. God bless such souls. 🙂 🙂

    Going diff ways is always there in frndships, but to remain connected later is dependent on us…so be connected always….it only takes a moment to lose that frndship, owing to other work. 🙂

    Missed u around…glad to see u back. 🙂 🙂

    part of life kanagu….glad to see u back

    Glad u were not one of the people fooled by the Ayodhya verdict. It was a sham…they were trying to be please everyone…and be too diplomatic.

    CWG – yes I totally agree. It came and went without so much as a whisper of trouble during its wake. But I’ve a feeling the issue is going to explored and re-explored and new angles found. Did u read abt the Begging Act where they got rid of all homeless people to the outskirts of the city? It’s already stirring up issues….

    As for the help u got in office….and the ppl leaving…. c’est la vie, mon ami 🙂 Thats how life works. The help u want, u will always get….but it wont be frm the direction u r expecting it from. Thats one rule of life that has always applied to me…

    Less said about the Ayodhya verdict the better. It was a complete sham. As for the CWG, yes I’m glad they turned out well thanks to the amazing and inspiring perfromances by our athletes. But I hope now we will get around to bring those perpetrators who took us all for a ride with their misappropriations, are brought to books.
    You’re really fortunate to be working amidst such wonderful people, Kanagu 🙂

    Good to see you back!
    CWG was a big success! But hope that amidst the euphoria of success and medals the real culprits behind the initial mess and corruption do not go scot free!
    When you have such wonderful colleagues, its fun and pleasure at work!

    Welcome bk [again] 😉

    So nice of ppl @ work to help that way without wondering abt their own good appraisals. God bless them 🙂

    Gud luck to all those who are moving for the better and hope ur bond remains as strong forever 🙂

    Should all of us say ‘welcome back’ in chorus?! I am sure you must have done well in your exams, Kanagu. Best of luck to your future!

    No one thought that the CWG will end well in all aspects…except for the dirty corruption involved. Medals were pouring on us. And many women were there in the medal list. Yes, Narang is really great.

    Still good people are there and we come across them when we need them. It is nice of you to remember him, Kanagu.

    Every change in life is for good and we learn many things out of these experiences.

    All the best, Kanagu!

    Welcome back. But friends leaving and all is a part and parcel of life :). As they say there are never too many friends. You can have the old ones and make you ones as you go by :).

  12. October 20, 2010 10:26 pm

    Welcome back again 🙂
    It’s nice to see the way you collated all the recent past happenings…yeah..CWG was spectacular to watch…and glad that we won a lot of laurels! And for the first time we proved that we do play games other than Cricket.
    Hey that’s cool…not all will come forward to help, without expecting anything!

    how were the exams dude ..
    regarding the post , i think verdict that was given was inevitable , had it not been a diplomatic one, religious clashes would have started once again..
    and I am happy about our achievement in CWG.. i would like to see them perform better in a event like Olympics where China and USA participate 🙂

    About Paes.. Yes he’s a real talent. He’s hunger for more wins even at this stage. At 30, we consider federer is too old to win much trophies.. But here, our own Paes still winning more n more.

    And abt the friends leaving, its a part n parcel of life. Even i had the same feelings at first.. Now its a like a normal one. whenever I feel someone is close, the next thing I hear is they are leaving. So learned to live with it.. :)..

    Doesn’t your job involve going onsite?

  16. October 22, 2010 11:41 am

    Dilliwalas are relieved that CWG games are .
    Now is the time to settle political scores–which is exactly what is happening.

    Glad to see you back recharged and determined to stay for a while 😛 😛

    Ayodhya verdict was interesting… I was surprised how judgements could be made this way, but we never followed all the documents that were submitted and all the sessions that took place in the courts right? I think the fire which was there last decade on such issues is no longer there in full force, and that’s the good thing. The better showing at CWG is something to be proud of for the Indians but the real test is always the Olympics. Ten more medals in Olympics is always better than 2nd position in Asian Games or CWG! Look at Australia and China. And how fast China has climbed there.

    Welcome back, I guess.
    I hope the exams weren’t too bad.

  20. October 28, 2010 1:46 am

    Welcome back!!
    1- Ayodhya- I wasn’t impressed either, but compromise is THE ONLY WAY OUT, Kanagu. Our country is too diverse, for anything else to work. All of our communities have to share and live together. No other choice!
    2- CWG- Hmph!! Not impressed at all , except with the Opening ceremony!
    3- Helping – THat is soooo sweet of them.. God bless such people, and make more like them!
    4- Departure – This is inevitable, Kanagu, enjoy while you can, and you will also make more friends as the days pass by.

    hm…. We are more concerned about the prestige of the religion . 🙂

    About friends…. yes even I used to feel like that , but u can keep in touch with them .

  22. October 30, 2010 10:03 pm

    “hm…. We are more concerned about the prestige of the religion . ”

    Please, tell this to Hindus in West Bengal.

    What do we care?

    CWG opening ceremony was the best compared to the closing ceremony.

    I used to feel bad when someone close to me leave but can’t do anything,the only thing is try to catch ur friends on weekneds and holidays.
