LaSt WeEk....tHiS wEeKeNd !!!!

really do not have much to write today..

just that there is a long small vacation ahead of me.. long because its rare that you get 4 days off work officially...
and short because i am sure these 4 days are going to fly by like deadlines do... hehe.. actually one of these 4 is already kinda over...

last week was exciting... office was hectic but was good.. i might just get a chance to be responsible of a tool rollout across india which means.. a lot of preperation at my side... training material, training plans, look at the infra needed.. prepare checklists... and loads more... and hey... i am not complaining.. i am looking forward to it...

this also means that things are going to be tough till 31-Jan-06

another achievement for the last week...

two books
names: Five Point Someone and One Night @ the Call Centre
one author
name : Chetan Bhagat
one reader
reader's a name : Prashant Bhardwaj
total time to finish the books: not more then 10 hours across the whole week..

this is really an achievement for someone who has not read many books.. i just do not like it.. but this time it was different coz the books were simple and interesting.. tushar wants me to read something more complicated and break away from the mind block of not being able to understand books.. i am not sure if that is going to happen... i still want to read things which are simple.. and do not want me to understand them... anyway lets see...

i did not have time to think a lot this week other then work.. however a few things are there on my mind and i might just write about them wheni think about them a li'il more...

~) what was the girl who got raped a few days back doing at a bus stop on Vikas Marg at 0300 hrs... and why did she take a lift from a cab which had 3 guys in it? not to say that the bastards who did what they did is right.. but is anyone other then them also responsible for this kinda act?

~) a few weeks back i was thinking that i like being alone.. and this feeling is getting stronger and stronger... i do not really like when my cell ohone rings when i want to be with me... for 3 days lagataar i am going to the T-SHOP and i usually do not have much to talk about.. i just want to rest in peace...

~) gaurav, my fotography guru saw my fotos and was kinda happy about what i am doing these days.. but he still is not too keen to see too much in my fotos.. he wants me to have an eye for detail which i guess i am developing slowly...

~) i want to read something like i did last week.. but unfortunately i do not have anything to read... i do not want to read something which is too much of fiction.. rather have something which is kinda real and simple.. and i can associate with..

~) i want to do something worthwhile in the next 3 days.. cleaning up the mess in my room tops the list... if i can do it or not is something that i come to find out only tmrw evening.. coz that is when i will know if i have done it or not...

~) i am sad about the blasts that happened today in delhi... everyone suddenly has the opportunity to point a finger at the administration and the police without realising that we as people are more responsible for not being able to identify the unidentified objects leading to these blasts... police cannot check the bags of the thousands of ppl who walk into the markets everyday.. but we can always keep our eyes open and stay alert... i think i you we should be acting more responsibly then starting to blame the entire police dept and the politicians for what they do not do... politicians in india do not do anything in any case... except displaying their grief on any unfortunate incident and offering some lacs to the relatives of the dead... would request anyone who is reading this to be more alert and act responsible for himself as well as everyone around them...

~) aro called me as soon as he knew of the blasts and wanted to know if i was alright... love u man !!!

~) i might read some Sherlock Holmes tonight.. lets see...


too many words again... i feel at times that i need to limit the amount that i write in every post.. but then it does not happen...

whatever...

have a good weekend everyone... and be safe... and keep ppl around you safe too...
