Moved to New Location

We have permanently moved to http://www.mtaram.com/blog

I am thankful to all my readers. It is the support from them that motivated me to keep writing and reach this far. Since last few weeks I have not made much of a progress on this blog as I was working on my website. I will be moving this blog to my own domain shortly, meanwhile the posts will be available at both the locations.

I have been working on my new blog too. I am once again thankful to all my readers and promoters.

Thank you all and keep visiting.

October 16 ’09 – one of the best days of my life.

Never did I know that today was going to be a memorable day of my life. Woke up as usual at 930 am and went back to sleep only to get up at 11 am. Had some work to do with one of my school friends who had come to home [Lucknow] and I had come to home too for some reasons. I finished up with my annual ritual of fixing the lights and connecting them up by 12 pm. My friend arrived at 1230pm. We went with one more friend to Mc Donalds for lunch and then back to my place to do some work. In the evening We went to meed another friend and that lead to visiting one more friend who I had met last time in 1998. The day was going to be awesome. One more school friend happened to meet us at the same place whom I had last met in 2003. Then on my way back I met one of the sweetest person…. my girlfriend since class 6 [1992].

The day could not have been better. [Happy Diwali to me] 🙂

I want to die. [if its so read it first]

I don’t know who you are, or why you are reading this page. I only know that for the moment, you’re reading it, and that is good. I can assume that you are here because you are troubled and considering ending your life. If it were possible, I would prefer to be there with you at this moment, to sit with you and talk, face to face and heart to heart. But since that is not possible, we will have to make do with this.

What do I think

What can one think about thinking? Once you think about it you just can’t stop thinking.  The way I think is like I start with something that catches my attention and from there on I keep going on and on and on and reach somewhere that is not at all related to the initial thought. It happens with me or with all I am unsure because I have not asked anyone else and for the first time I am going to ask this question to you. So just tell me. It is with me or you too think like this.

While I am awaiting answer let me tell you what I thought one fine day in my class. It was some day and morning class. I as usual entered the class late and moved to the farthest seat. Weather was cool. Some windows were open and outside it looked great with the morning mist just vanishing. At the last row we have one advantage and that is that if you don’t want to listen to the professor you don’t have to. The class was accounts and I was in no mood to study. I in fact was scribbling something on my notebook while the professor was busy with the front rows discussing some problem.

Mean while a flying crow caught my attention and my eyes tracked it till the very end of its flight which ended on a rusted pipe on the top of our mess building. The bird perched there for a few seconds and then took a dive towards the ground and My eyes as well as my thoughts followed it. And then it went under the window and out of my view but due to the momentum my eyes kept moving and the next was face of some one. I just stopped there and the very thought in my mind was what I am doing here. I tried to take a break from thinking and tried to listen to the professor but by that time the problem had been solved and the answer was there. Let me take a break and tell you what is the answer of the question which we started discussing at the very beginning.

The answer makes me think that the thinking style differs from individual to individual. I keep going with the flow but there are times I keep thinking about the same thing over and over again and rest of te thought s just keep going around that one thought. It so tough to understand the human brain, how it can find the similarities or say a link between two thoughts, which if taken separately have no link. It’s like the sun and the planets. Any new though is a new planet but being a part of solar system it goes around the sun. So what ever is thought starts from the sun and in one way or the other ends at the sun.

My interns @ Jobeehive.com

I always had wanted to have a .com as my own and fortunately I have one .com and one .in but these are domains and to understand how these domain names turn into companies was wish that I had since long. My summer interns at www.jobeehive.com would give me a hands on experience at funtioning of a virtual organization. The best part of my summers is that I would get to do what I always had wanted and above all I get to work from home 🙂

Tata nano – my lucky charm :)

Tata nano has proved to be luck for me. My first post about Nano was last year on January 26 when I was travelling in train for my MBA admissions process. I got a mail from one of my best friends Sachu who is an ASM with Samsung. The mail inspired me to write about the car and its competetors. Its been a long story from there on and the hits on my posts have been increasing but the number of hits on Tata nano article were overwhelming… more than 800 hits on a single post in a day… Its too much for me… I am elated… hope this kind of response continue.

I am thankful to all my reader.
