Leave in Bangalore Nov 28th, 2008

Leave in Bangalore. Today. Nov 28th, 2008.

Janata Parivar is giving " respect" to VP Singh ex PM 89 - 91.

They were all one family.

Bofors pointers. Rajiv Gandhi's Ouster!

Good for Kids in Rain.

Long weekend.

Mumbai problems and help

Looks like life is on the move in Mumbai.

3 ATS officers killed.

125 dead.

1000's injured.

Back to work. Great Mumbai.

So now for this operation, what are these Marathi Manoos doing? Are they the only guys helping in terrorism cleanup?

Raj Thakeray and MNS would be the party to thank for helping all in this time?

Mumbai and terrorism

What is happening in Mumbai? Despicable.

Condolences to the family of dead!

There are internet idiots, spamming with fun news... Tweeting their heart away and showing off their typing skills.

Atleast these politicians have come together to find a solution on what needs to be done.

Good Advani & Modi.

Still situation seems to be under fire at Mumbai.

The day did not begin well.

Sad stories.

Cricket being canceled seems to be big news for channels like CNN IBN. Idiots.

Nair Tea Stall

This is not funny, but serious. There is a Nair Tea Stall in a famous Chennai 5 Star hotel.

Nair Tea Stall, Chennai

This is called thinking out of the box!
A Rs 4/- for a cup of road side "chai" sold for Rs 40/- (figurative)

இளம் வயதில் தாத்தா

என் நண்பர் எழுதிய ஒரு பதிவு, அவர் நண்பர் இளம் வயதில் தாத்தா ஆகியுள்ளாராம். வாழ்த்துக்கள், சுவாமிநாதன்.

பெங்களூர் மழை கோவை மழை

மே பி அவர் முதல் குழந்தை?

லேட் ஆக படிக்க வந்தார்?

சில சமயம் கடமைகளை சீக்கிரம் முடிக்கணும்.

அது தான் வாழ்க்கை.

Two interesting interviews, written by friends

One of my interviews went like this:
Interviewer : Good Morning. How are you doing today?
Me : Hi.
I/v : So, Can you brief about yourself.
Me : I guess everything I can say is on my resume.
I/v : Oka..y, Do you know any C++?
Me : All I know is C.
I/v : But I dont know C too well. Besides, what is there to ask in C?
Me : I guess that is your problem. I have been short listed for C and that is all I ever want to know. I am not even interested in learning C++. So you have to ask me in C. Ask me anything in C and I shall answer.
I/v : Oka..y, can you tell me the difference between C and C++?
Me : (after a chuckle) I guess I made clear that I dont know C++. Do you think I can answer that?
I/v : Okay. Guess I dont have any quesions for you. You can leave now. We will get back to you shortly.

In around a week, I got the offer letter.


My latest interview :
I/v : Hi, how are you doing today?
me : Well, not so good, I guess. No sleep for the last couple of nights and to make it worse, I ran out of coffee yesternight.
I/v : Is it some project for your current company.
me : Nope. I dont have no job right now. My contract with the previous company ended two weeks back and that's why I am here. Actually, I was trying to create a tiny OS that would have only what I need. But the damn thing crashes every time I try to load a specific reentrant function. Man, I am working my brains out, but still struck on this stupid thing. Guess I need a break.
I/v : Interesting.. Do you know anything about our company?
me : Oh yeah. I googled even before applying to you guys. In fact the details I got about this company are quite impressive. That's the main reason I applied for this company. I enjoy working with this sort of company and though I do have a couple of offers from xyz, zyx companies, I will appreciate if you guys selected me and will join here.
I/v : Guess I dont have much to ask. Your resume is stunning. Do you have any questions?
me : Yes. If I join here, what would be my office hours?
I/v : We are flexible with that. You can choose any time that suits you.
me : Gee. Thanks. Thats what I expect.
I got the offer immediately.
