TCS is not getting me..!!Let’s see who needs me..!!

The feeling is awful..My dream company went by giving me a breeze and I could not even unbutton my shirt..The problem was with me that I did not study hard enough in my college life..Had I studied as hard as I studied in my school life I might have got a direct interview with the HR..
The criterion was that all pupils who have above 75% in their school as well as college life can sit directly for the interview..I dint qualify for that as my college cgpa is just four points away from the stipulated mark..But still I had a chance to write the written aptitude test and try to get my place in the esteemed organization..But, similar to my college life, I screwed up here as well..I couldn’t get past the aptitude round..Although I had the attitude but your attitude gets checked only after your aptitude..
The night I did not clear the written round was one of the worst for me as an individual..The best thing was that all my friends got the interview call and were more or less sure that they are in..The worst feeling used to struck me when all my college mates used to congratulate me and I had to dole out, “I did not get through”..On top when I wished my friends congrats they all replied back unknowingly with a bolt from the blue, “Same to you”..Hah..Sorry dude there is no same to you in this story..I did not get cleared..
Any ways loads of companies still to come in campus..Tomorrow have Wipro coming our way..Then have Hcl, Mindtree, L&T and Dolcera..Although I never had any intensions of going into any company other than my dream company TCS under the safe and sound security of the Tata group but as the saying goes, “Beggars can’t be choosers..”
So people wish me luck......................!!And ya..Congrats to all my friends and foes who got placed in TCS at 868 rupees per day..And all those who did not get placed just remember, “Picture abhi baki hai mere dost..We all will have Happys Endings”..

Facebook generation is the loneliest group..!!

This is my 50th post on my blog and I couldn’t find a better topic than talk about the most talked about topic in our daily lives.. ”Facebook..........................................................................................!!
Believe it or not a survey report which came out in the Times of India revealed that the Facebook generation, i.e. 16 to 24 year olds, are lonelier than any other age group..This survey was done by the famous BBC radio 3..
This report revealed that in this age group among every three persons, one said that they are bored with their lives and 28% complained loneliness and thus turned to drinking and even were happy to flaunt it when asked..The report revealed that more than a quarter of them turned alcoholics just for mere comfort and half admitted to using junk food as an emotional crutch..
Now when we go into the reason behind this unhappiness some would be pretty common as we might have ourselves faced such a situation..Finances tops the list of the causes followed by the inability to hold onto a job..Some even said that they were unhappy because of family reasons..Some had some long term tiffs with their parents and some completely abhorred their parents..All in all Money was the root cause of all the loneliness and unhappiness..
Another cause which showed its presence was the absence of a relationship..Some are tormented by their inability to snug up to the opposite sex and initiate a relationship while some turn to loneliness because of a recent relationship break up..
Mark Zuckerberg
All I want to say is that the colloquial term, “Facebook me!!” is just an alternative for this generation group’s unhappiness..People who feel that they are left off by their parents and are not loved on by anyone..People who care more for a Levis T shirt rather than a spending that money on calling up their parents or loved ones in the opposite sex and sorting out the differences and misunderstanding that might have cropped up..
I know I too fall in the same age group and cannot prevent myself from being addicted to the facebook but I have started feeling that Mark Zuckerberg, the youngest billionaire ever and the founder of the facebook, himself telling us the very exact words that he was once told by a girl, “You are not an ass hole, but you are trying so hard to be one......................................!!”

An unexpected help!!!!

Have you ever been in the midst of any difficult problem??Has it ever happened to you that you are in the midst of complete deep shit??Has it ever happened to you that you are sitting alone and thinking about how to come out of it??Has it ever happened to you that you feel that if you don’t do any specific work you will have a heavy loss, maybe monetary or personal??Has it ever happened to you that you can see the problem right in front of you but you can’t help yourself to come out of the problem??Has it??If it has then this post is for you as you will be the one who can co-relate himself to the situation and put yourself in my shoes and think what was going on in my mind and how I must have been feeling..!
It so happened that this semester am having less attendance in most of the subjects..So I was pretty scared that what would happen..I had already had a talk with my teachers and they all told me to submit an OD (On Duty) letter to the class in charge..This OD letter is meant to mark my attendance for the time period of CHAKRAVYUHA ’10, a national level tech fest which is held under the banner of the School Of Mechanical Engineering, an integral part of the SRM University..I worked as the PRO for the above said event..So I did submit the OD letter and went off..
A few days back my class in charge called up and he informed me, rather intimidated me that my attendance was still falling short of the 75% bench mark by just 3.5%..I again was terribly scared as to what would happen and getting detained in the penultimate semester would be a death blow to my chances of getting placed in the campus interviews which are going on in college..So getting very frustrated I finally came out of my college campus gate..I was walking towards the food joint when someone passed by me saying something which I could not decipher properly..But one thing I could make out of the conversation was the old adage, “By hook or by crook”..
Now the crook in me started playing itself and a small devil popped out on my left shoulder..He advised me to call up dad and ask for a medical certificate on the dates of the beginning of the semester as I had reached a week late..I called up dad then and there and he agreed to fax it up to me then..Now began the real tough task of finding a fax machine on campus..I tried all shops and no one had a fax machine..Our hostel fax machine had also been transferred inside the girls block where I was not allowed..I was really flustered..Suddenly I saw my floor warden walking toward me from the other direction..I never treated him that well and always used to make fun of him in front of him as well as behind his back..But he remembered my name and always kept calling me out by my name..This meeting was no exception..He shrieked out my name in the middle of the streets and I had no option other than walk towards him and talk to him for a sec..On getting in front of him I dint find any other topic to talk to him other than my present distress of not getting a fax machine..
Just as I popped out the words fax machine, he took it on himself to help me out..He called up the senior hostel warden and asked him to let me allow his personal fax machine..The senior warden readily agreed and now my work was half done..To finish the rest of the job my floor warden asked the person accompanying him to take me to the hostel on his bike and get all the work done and then finally drop me to the college campus..He even gave me the senior wardens cell number and asked me to contact him and tell him if there was any further requirement..The whole process took just 15 minutes and I was back again on track with a very good attendance percentage..The same process which could have taken a full day out of my calendar..
In our world we have always heard people comparing two terms Friendship and Love..People keep comparing these two terms and some say that Love is short-termed and keep saying that Friendship stays on forever whereas the others say that Love is the greatest feeling on the planet..I don’t know which one is better out of the two but I just know one term Smile..Whether the person standing next to me is my friend or not, doesn’t matter..Whether she is my lady love or not, doesn’t matter..I will for sure pass on a smile..It doesn’t cost a thing..But it can help you out in situations where you are completely stuck and start calling out to God and begging and pleading for help..It is just because I was good to my floor warden on face that he helped me out in that situation..
So for me it’s neither Friendship nor Love that counts more..It’s the feel good Smile that you pass on to anyone you talk to which counts and even helps you out on difficult situations where you feel that you are stuck and finally you come out and say thank you Jesus.!!
