Yeah Yeah Yeah. I am happy. Not that I have been made the CEO ,that would take some time ( centuries ?), I am afraid.But I am happy because things moved along quite a bit today as far as my summer project is concerned. I had been googling and regoogling and reregoogling stuff on the internet ,and today finally i stumbled onto a pretty useful chunk of useless data required for my project .Infact , on a philosophical note , the more I live life , the more I become aware of the importance of "Google" in supporting the human race.
When we guys were on the brink of a nervous breakdown making our engineering final year project , it was "google devta" which came to our rescue.We downloaded a decent amount of code from the net and ended up making something which we still have got no clue about . At the IIMs , google is more used than any financial or economic model ever devised.Be it a report on the cigarette industry of india , a survey on the bicycle usage in Finland , or an outlook on the undergarment industry of Zimbabwe , every burning need has the one and only Lord Google to satisfy it.
And not only the professional life , google has had a pretty divine imprint on the personal aspects of my life too.I still remember that "kaali amavas ki raat" (too much of scary hindi movies ?) , when as a nervous 14 year old ( or was it 12) , I typed down "pamela anderson pics " on the sacred google bar , leading to a very informative and educational online session.Then there was the sunny afternoon , when a frustrated 16 year old , tired of carrying around the "single-ready to mingle" tag line ,angrily punched in " how to get a girlfriend" on google's website. Googling "Life at IIM" was another regular habit till I got in. I still occasionally google the names of girls Ive had a crush on in my short lifetime , hoping to find them somewhere ,with the culmination being a happy and teary reunion , with the girl telling me how much she admired me secretly.
But even our newtonic genius called google fails at times.Recently , I had to find out about the acquistion of "Ruchi Biscuits" ( where do these sell ?) by "Shyam group" of companies(what do these guys sell ?).So i googled about it , but it so conspired that I ended up reading the review of a south indian flick with a hero named shyam and the lead actress called ruchi. But this can be classified as an off day for google ,the knight in the shiny armour for students , engineers , summer trainees , sex maniacs , parted lovers around the planet.
