Heartfelt thanks.

There are some moments when you move on from one page to the next one in your life book . Like when I was a baby who had to crawl under tables and skirts to move around , I was on the page titled 'My life as a crawling person ' , however creepy that may sound . Then one day my parents had this Maneka Gandhi-ian brainwave and they took me to the delhi zoo .They took me to the various enclosures .They decided to take a break in the lawn right outside the camel's enclosure .So my ma spread out a sheet on the grass and put me down as she took out the stuff she had cooked for lunch.While she looked around in the bag , I checked out the camel , had a surge of some real wild baby hormone , and took my first steps ever .My ma let out a chuckle in surprise and let go of my hand .My dad clicked this .So the page titled 'My life as a person who can walk' starts with a photograph of me with the 'Doctor ! Main chal sakta hun !' expression on my face staggering towards a camel who has the perfect 'I don't care about your walking , kid . I am real constipated' expression on its face .

In the same way , yesterday I switched over from the page titled 'My life as an unemployed youth with a huge affinity to the ATM card provided by Dad and considering an alternate career in terrorism' to the page with the topic 'My life as an employed youth with zero formal dressing sense and still a rather strong affinity to the ATM card provided by Dad'.

You know , this is the problem with guys like me.

I need to go to the toilet but I don't say 'Excuse me' and go away . Instead I start with a story about the time when a two year old me pissed in my aunt's lap so hard she almost suffered from multiple thigh fractures .Then I continue to talk about my aunt and her husband who worked in NASA and somehow the entire talk ends in stuff like 'Is there life outside earth' and I completely forget that I need to go to the toilet . So I will rephrase all that I have so stupidly said - I got a job at ITC Limited . I think I got into one of the bigger and better companies with a strong marketing involvement , which is in line with my goals .



A real thanks to all the people who left the good luck messages on this blog , or dropped offliners or mailed me for the same .I really wish I could compress some kinda treat into a zip file and mail it to all of you and you could download it and double click on it to find it's a virus actually. Nah , sacchi , more than the job , this post is about being grateful to all those people who had the wonderfully nice hearts to wish me luck .There have been some very special people who kept me going - and these people know how much it means to me .

Anyways , so what faces me are last 12 days at IIM C with not much to do except burn all the pictures and movies and music on CDs and burn all the books in the hot and actual sense . Since the ITC headquarters are at Calcutta , I shall be coming back to this city again .

I would really like to thank you guys for listening to stuff as weird as Lux chocolate variant over the stay I have had at IIM -C . Infact that reminds me , someone actually mailed me saying that I have always been spelling 'weird' as 'wierd' on this blog .I actually thought it was 'wierd' , which reflects on my spelling skills in a rather weird light .

I have been typing all this stuff over the last 20 minutes or so while sitting on my bed and I haven't got out of it since waking up this morning .So now I need to get out and brush my teeth.Between , it makes me remember the time I was on a train and I had no toothpaste and had to borrow it from this lovely girl and how we got talking about Toothpastes and dental structures and how she thought Kashmiris have better teeth due to all the apples they eat how that led us to the Kashmir Issue and Pakistan's role in it ....Uee ma , here I go again with my random thoughts .

I need to brush my teeth .I just need to shut up.

Office ka pehla din and she walks upto munnu and "Hi Munnu!".. Munnu looks down 'pink sandals', and up 'pink salwar' and up 'pink kameez', and up 'green bangles' *ahem*...THE BEGINNING!

G'day from Sydney!

You have no idea who i am but i was totallyy addicted to your blog over the last 2 weeks or so. Infact i think after discovering your blog 3 weeks ago, ive spent most of my time just reading all your passed blogs, IVE READ EVERY SINGLE ONE!, you crack me up mate, Infact reading your own blog has got me to start my own as well, right now its the blogging equivalent to a bullock cart, but i guess ill eventually get there. Anyway congrats and thanks for keeping me entertained for so long, and thanks for being the impetus to make me start my own blog!

hey! ab tumhe job mil gaya .... ab tum baade aaffsaar ban gaye to ab blogging band karoge kya?

netGuru said...

well i think u deserve a congratulation statement first ..and then ...err...ummm....
I dont know man...
this whole IIM thing is so overrelated in general with big bucks that i cant go beyond that general thinking that u guys have a life where u can be free even when not in office ....u guys stop calculating the bill of something, lets say a popcorn bag, when watching a movie.. :-)
but hey ITC is a wow company and now that u mentioned that u wanted to be in such a company ..so i guess you would be a little..happy !!

Keep on going man ! !
just dont forget there are a whole lot of people who didnt get enough chance or choice to be in ur position may be....and they are not always less dumb :-)

Hi,

I guess you have a wonderful sense of humour, and it was evident when I read - it was worth reading every line that you wrote. I daresay that if you can retain this charm as you go up, it's worth living.

cant stop lafing.--- "hopefully something u wanted..(assumed u wanted an indian company coz u sat out of day zero)"
for any MBA(marketing) grad ITC is a dream come true..from foods(Kitchens of India,Aashirvaad,sunfeast..) to hotels to apparels(wills lifestyle,john players..) to e-choupal..ITC with its strong distribution n/w would be the undisputable leader in a few years..FYI---ITC is one of India's foremost private sector companies with a market capitalisation of around US $ 14 billion and a turnover of US $ 3 billion. Rated among the World's Best Big Companies by Forbes magazine, ITC ranks third in pre-tax profit among India's private sector corporation.. Munnu lambi race ka khiladi hai..cheers 2 munnus..

hi there.. dont know if this comment will ever be read by you ...
first of all congrats for your job.. this led me to your blogs just 2 days ago and i find them really grt ..
ur blog has even led me to another beautiful blog

Anonymous said...

Hey Abhinav

I first saw your post on rashmi's blog...youthcurry

And over the weekend i have read your posts dating back to 2005

And in 1 sentence...your style of writing rocks...& rocks bigtime

Somebody said that making people laugh is much harder than making them cry...and you excel at the former

BTW congrats for ur ITC job...but if u ever decide to switch or get bored...u can always be a hugely successful author...

Infact most readers of ur blog will agree with this suggestion of mine:
U must write a short humourous account of your time @IIMC and i can safely say that ppl will lap it up and it will be an all time bestseller

hopefully i have learnt & will imbibe some of the gr8 quaalities..ability to get girls drooling with ur blog posts not the least among them :D

i dont know if u relaize this but u have a knack of weaving humour into ur writing and according to me thats 1 heck of a skill to have

but whatever little i have come to know about u(by reading a dozen or more posts by u in the last 1 day), my guess is that u dont try to do it consciously...ur personality is like that...and it shows in ur writing too

chal man,
take care and all the best with the job

hope u (finally :D)get a gf at itc :D

cheers
augustya

p.s. do take my book suggestion seriously

nv said...

hahahha nah nah dude not retired, just have a lot of time on my hands @ work
lets just say i get paid to do very little, infact i get paid to read what your write

However, in common usage "computer game" refers to Best Payout Casinos played on a personal computer, while "video game" (or "videogame") refers to Online casinos played on a video game console connected to a television or built in to a handheld unit. Both "computer Online casinos" and "video Online casinos" are frequently used as umbrella terms for interactive game software. To avoid ambiguity, this game software is referred to as "computer and video Online casinos".

alice said...

One-person Best Payout Casinos or one-player Online casinos are sometimes called solitaire Online casinos, but this term can be easily confused with the peg game and the card game of same name.
