Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair

When you are drowned up to your neck with deliverables, meetings and more meetings- you don’t think of anything that’s around you!

I don’t remember even when I met my friend and how I came to California – its like a history hidden somewhere!
Today when my friend went to LA for some official purpose that’s when I realized how much I miss my friend :)

“Within you I lose myself...
Without you I find myself
Wanting to be lost again.”

Yes, it’s true you realize only when you don’t find them around!
I was with the assumption that since I am so busy probably I will not even miss my friend but I was wrong!!!
I miss my friend and I hope the day goes fast and he comes back soon!

And nights bright days when dreams do show thee to me.”~William Shakespeare

I want to tell my blogger friends that sorry I am lately not attending their blogs only because of my busy schedule and settling at the new place.

I love you my dear friends!

A weekday was busy last week and so does was the weekend.

Moving is very tedious no matter where you move…and so I moved to Niles Canyon, Fremont. Sunday morning was like a dream come true.
Slight breeze, the sunrays was already knocking the door but mountains were hiding the sun. The backyard with lush green lawn and the blue jays on the branches….took me back in my memories when during school vacation I used to go to Kerala – a peaceful morning yet with birds chirping it was music in ears.

As I meet people at this place, I get surprised each day and feel at home at the same time. Can you believe some people here have been living for more than 40 years and just like how at back home; they never moved or sold there home.
Everyone knows everyone; everyone greets everyone and makes sure the neighbor and the neighborhood is doing well.
There is lot of scenic view and more hidden history, such as Charlie…

Two people were arguing on the topic ‘stress’ which I guess is not new or strange to anyone: D
Yes, the discussion was work makes one stressful and the other was saying its not the work but the people!

“To be free of destructive stress don't sweat the small stuff and by realizing that all stuff is small.”
Hmm…when I heard that, I started scratching my head and I said, its indeed the people as work you know your work or you will work around to get things done but it’s the people if they don’t make you feel at home, you will be always worried and tensed to first of all to come to work and then the rest of the day- how it takes you through with the help of people ;)

“People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel” ~ Irwin Federman

Do you agree with it?
I am saying from my personal experience, as with my assignments I am very busy.
I was working at office and also at home. Trying to finish the task as much as possible and get on to the next! But I enjoyed every momen…

As I said in my last post…things are settling slowly, got my laptop though had couple of issues but can’t complain :)!

I have been watching lot of movies these days and guess what – one thing I have realized having your office near your home is not a good thing: D!

I am sure lot of them would be surprised to read this, but believe me the closer your work place is to your home the more lazy one gets, as you know it will only take few minutes :D!

Hence my late nights are still up ;) these days!
I happened to watch many movies – Hindi and English of which I may not write about all but yes few which I am sure my friends would enjoy will be mentioned here :)

I saw this movie ‘Mississippi Burning’ - Two FBI agents with wildly different styles arrive in Mississippi to investigate the disappearance of some civil rights activists.

Gene Hackman and Willem Dafoe have done a great job I must say and besides the whole crime drama made me hate those times as what was happening in 60’s.
I am sure any one w…

Lately, I have been in transition mode with job. Coming back to Cisco is like bringing back my initial times of US, when I was a bit sad for leaving Canada and that’s when I found friends at work…!
Now I am back there and searching for those friends :), I know they are there it’s just that I am not able to connect without my laptop! Yes, you take a week or more to get a laptop in Cisco ;) ~ like they say ~ in big company’s things take a bit time!!

“Technology makes it possible for people to gain control over everything, except over technology” ~ John Tudor

So, what am I doing in Cisco without laptop (as mostly one seems to not working at all without the laptop ;) ), I am reading stack of documents, making my days long and sleepy!
Hey exciting news which really is exciting for me... Loll! I got a call in the morning saying – one of my Hindi poem has been selected by a kido (shweet one of 6-7 yr old), we call her ‘Zhansi Ki Rani’ (I guess the world’s first woman who fought in the battle in …

Happy Canada Day!
I miss my days in Canada and always cherish my sweet memories of there.
When I say so, it speaks not only about the place, the nature and geographic part of it but also the people out there.
I love Canadians and love to say that as a newbie in my initial days, Canadians have helped me a lot in becoming a part of them
