There is Nothing

There's nothing about the way the hair falls on your face
if you are wondering how great it is, just in case
your walk is just like any other woman i have seen
Before you think why i am being so mean

I'd like to tell, you are the one
When you are around its so much fun
And when you are not
Oh! that's not what i want.

Ugadi - The lessons I learnt!

No comments: Links to this post
As I went through my wall on FB reading the many wishes for the Ugadi festival which is celebrated mainly in the Deccan region of India. Its the New Year for them. Well I don't have to tell in detail about the festival you can get all you want here.

Then why did i start writing this post? Well, there is one major delicacy prepared during this festival from the place where i come. I was trying to understand the significance of the dish in my own terms and came up with this. Ah! I know I forgot to mention what the delicacy is. Its something thats made up of the flowers/buds from the Neem tree and Jaggery. Sometimes there are other ingredients like the raw mango and others.

ಹೇಳದೇ ಉಳಿದ ಮಾತುಗಳು

ಹೇಳದೇ ಉಳಿದ ಮಾತುಗಳು 
ಬರೆಯದೇ ಉಳಿದ ಪದಗಳು 
ಜೋಡಿಸಿ ಬರೆಯಲೇ ನಾಕು ಸಾಲು 
ವರ್ಣಿಸಿ ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಧರಿಸಿದ ನಿನ್ನ ಕಾಲು 

ಧರಿಸದೇ ಹರಿದ ಬಟ್ಟೆಗಳು 
ಒಗೆಯದೇ ಹೋದ ಕಲೆಗಳು 
ಜೋಡಿಸಿ ಹೊಲಿಯಲೇ ನಿನಗೊಂದು ಸೀರೆ 
ಬರೆದು ಅದರಮೇಲೆ ತಂಪಾದ ಯಳನೀರೆ 

ಹೊಡೆಯದೇ ಬಿದ್ದ ಏಟುಗಳು 
ತಿಳಿಯದೇ ಅದ ನೋವುಗಳು 
ಮರೆತು ಮುಂದೆ ಸಾಗೋಣವೆ 
ಪ್ರೀತಿಯೇ ಮೇಲು ಎಂದು ಸಾರೋಣವೆ 

ತಿಳಿಯದೇ ಊಹಿಸಿದ ಯೋಚನೆಗಳು 
ಯೋಚಿಸದೇ ನುಡಿದ ಬೈಗುಳಗಳು 
ಬದಿಗಿಟ್ಟು ಮತ್ತೆ ನಕ್ಕರೆ ಚೆನ್ನ 
ಆ ನಗು ಹಬ್ಬಿಸಿದರೆ ಎಲ್ಲರ ಬಾಳು ಚಿನ್ನ!

Oct 5th 2014 - The Date

No comments: Links to this post
There was something special with this date. A date on which I along with many other folks embarked on a new journey without being aware of the challenges that were ahead of me and the good or bad times that I would be facing in the future. Going back five years down the lane, I placed my first step into the 'Infosys Univeristy' at Mysore and was mesmerized just by its vast architectural marvel. It was like a experience what I had heard from different people. That's when I did agree and made a statement, for once in life you need to be there at the Infosys Mysore Campus. 

It was a journey to the unknown
Along with few friends known!

My journey started with a good friend Vivek from Bangalore, and we managed to squeeze ourselves into the overcrowded train and our luggage made its way through the emergency window. After reaching the destination is when I met some of the other friends from my college. 

Waiting in the queue
Greeting the friends, we made new
As we entered, excited
At the same time perplexed 

Yes, indeed I was excited and also perplexed about what is next?  Five years have passed and I must definitely thank Infy for everything that I have gained professionally. The visuals of the first day still haunts my mind and so does the future. There are a lot of things that I learnt, lot of friends I made and a lot of things that I have done which I never thought of doing. 

Moments have passed
Their memories remain
We revisit them again
And sometimes feel blessed!

Yes, I do feel blessed for being part of this organization mainly for all things it has offered me. It is and will always remain special!.
