The 1st day of 2012, a Lesson is Learnt

First of all, a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to YOU. Sorry for being late. I was a bit busy with the job of applying for some job interviews 😉 , thanks to my friend ROKY GHOSH. Anyway, let’s get on with the story..This is how my 2012 started..

1st January.That day I got up at 6 45. Morning was strangely warmer than the prevoius day, and less chilly. I went out to check the weather, and to my surprise it was cloudy! Winter has always been my favourite season. But, when it is adulterated with this monsoon weather; I don’t like it. 😦
H
aving nothing to do I thought, I might SMS some friends. That could take care of my boredom. Then I remembered, it was another blackout day, so I coudn’t SMS.Somehow, I had a feeling that if I tried, I could find a tweak for this problem. I use WAY2SMS for sending SMS on blackout days, that also only when I am at home with my computer. So I had been searching for apps which would allow me to SMS over the phone net connection. There are indeed plenty of apps, but none worked perfectly on my 2700 classic. So I had been searching and trying them all, one by one, hoping that the next would work. But the new year day, was my lucky day. I finally found a app, (named JAXTR SMS) which actually works on my Nokia2700c!!!!!  I could’t believe it! After 1 whole year of searching, I had finally found it!!! I felt ecstatic! Like, I was on cloud nine!

To some, this incident maybe such small and insignificant, it isnt worthy of mention. But, it has taught me an old lesson, Keep trying and u will succeed..

(O! I forgot to mention, SMSing with this app, it isn’t free, but still far better. On blackout days each sms costs 60 p. With this app and bsnl net connection, I am sending each sms for approx 4 p.!!!! Now, it doesn’t seem logical to fill the coffers of these Mobile Service providers, does it?!!) 

What a way to start a new year!!!  😀 WELL BEGUN, IS HALF THE WORK DONE“.

With such a great beginning, I am not hoping, but actually confident that this year, is gonna be a great year!! 😀 😀

A JOB INTERVIEW, 3rd in my life,1st one away from home-> the journey ends..

Finally, a long awaited event comes to an end. Today we are returning back to durgapur.A few minutes ago Karthik left for his interview. we are getting ready, to leave. The caretaker has already told us to leave within 9 am, but I dont  think we would be able to get out of here before 9 30.. 😉

Well, it has been an eventful journey. A rich experience for the three of us and it is very hard to summarize all of this in a few words. Thats why i have tried to put it all in this collage

the whole journey, in a single frame..

For me, 2011 has been a series of misfortunes and bad experiences. Thats why, I had never expected the year to end on such a good note. Yet, it did.Someone said it right “All is well that ends well“. Lets hope, 2012 may bring happiness and luck for all of us… 🙂

A JOB INTERVIEW, 3rd in my life,1st one away from home -> Results are declared..

Today is my birthday! Thats why last  night my two partners, karthik and saaki gave me the B’DAY BASH!

We were supposed to get the results around 9pm last night. Yet, 8 am in the morning, and we were still waiting. Every now and then we were checking our mails, doing FB. My FB wall was overflowing with Happy Bday wishes..U know, in my life of 21 years I had never got so many BDAY Wishes in one day. Waiting for the mail, we were getting hungry..Then we went out for breakfast.

O! That reminds me of something. Last night we had seen a extremely lean dog, with a narrow face. It looked just like “KREACHER”, the elf of HARRY POTTER movies. So whenever we see any dog, Karthik says “Kreacher!!” and we have a nice laugh.. Today we were late for breakfast, so the “kochuri”s were finished. We had “paratha” and “Ghugni”. Then we returned back to our rooms and a surprise was waiting..

Guess what?? Our results had been declared! Karthik had cleared the test, me and Saaki didn’t. So after a short round of applause and facebook updates, we 2 settled down to watch “HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON”, an animation movie. I was also planning to visit my friends staying in HOWRAH, but there wasn’t sufficient time left, to go there and return. Karthik was supposed to report for his interview around 3 30 at the WBUT, salt lake today. There wasn’t much time left for him. So he went out,  took a chair and sat on the porch. He was revising all the topics and we were enjoying our free time. There is some benefit to failing after all..

Wishing karthik best of luck, we all went out. He took a taxi, and we went to a hotel for lunch. The manager was very talkative, he would go on speaking to u and u wud have to listen even if u don’t like that. Had a solid lunch. After that, I thought since we don’t have anything o do, lets go for a walk. So we went off roaming towards Alipore More. Saw a large number of high rise buildings, there was a whole high rise building labelled “GOLD’S gym”. We learnt a lot about bus numbers and bus routes. We walked for around a hour and returned back. On the way we had a chat about our favourite heroes and films. He told me to watch “shutter island”, featuring Leonardo Di Caprio whenever I get time. Having nothing to do, I went to sleep, Saaki was watching “the mummy” on my lappy. I woke up in the evening. Afterwards I went out to buy 2 eggrolls. Bad luck, then another idea struck. I went to a sweet shop, ordered for  3 “rasogollas”. Just like I guessed, the rasogollas were fresh and warm! They just melted in my mouth. I ordered another three for saaki. He too had a pleasant surprise!! And just as he was finishing them, karthik came in. His interview has been postponed to tomorrow 9 30 am. Again a little bit of Facebook-ing, teasing etc. Then we had dinner and came back to our rooms. Karthik seems quite tense. He is shuffling through the books and topics. And I am going off to sleep. Tomorrow, we shall return to Durgapur..

What a pleasure it is, to be able to hear again!!

I had temporarily lost my hearing power in my right ear, due to some sort of infection. It had blocked my ear canal, and was hearing with my left ear only. It does sound like nothing to fuss about, but it was a really sickening experience

For someone with normal hearing , to be impaired in right ear meant that the world had moved to the left. Each and every sound seemed to be originating on my left side. On road I myself was on the left side, yet the vehicles seemed to be honking on my left! So confusing it was… Every now and then I used to look back to ensure that the vehicles are actually on my right side. Watching TV was another problem; eyes said the TV is at my front, ears say it is far to the left. I couldn’t hear what people said and used to shout coz I couldn’t hear myself fully!! The worst part , all of the time I could hear each and every bone moving in my neck, inside my right ear, and it sounded like “KYYAAAAA….YYK” like doors in ghost movies.

Thankfully, today morning the doctor cleaned up the mess inside. Right after he took out the wax, my ear, inside, seemed warm! That sensation ( both nice and strange at the same time), told me that the world has moved back into its place. 🙂
