Gosh!!!I melted the ICE Berg

Do you think only CARs, Industries, Spray cans...add to Global warming ?
My Bad,I just did with my dinner.
We all do, not just when you over eat and burp r fart out.Its just by eating..
Today I realized just by eating you add to Global Warming.

My Indian Dinner added 5370 CO2 Points...I just melted couple of meters of ICE BERG in the Polar.

Today is World Carbon Day. I am in the land of Uncle Sam , there was a awareness campaign on how our diet adds Carbon which results in Global Warming...

Chance pe Dance

Its now 3 months in my new role as a Product Manager.
Got really busy..the meetings n the travel n the 'S' factor (Startergy Factor)...the Urge to learn faster burns me out with no energy get on to bloggin...
I was glued on to my seat with my previous profile , more grey cells mashed to figure out the emptiness I could sense at the end of my day...Not that bad either had a some good exposure lots of Open source tools,One which pepped me on to keep a watch over the space...it has lots of potential resources backing it up religiously.

"Chance pe Dance" typically this had been my passion..the more creativity involved, the more challenging work...the travel...the customer interaction...all these fits into the end to end business chain.

I am gelling with this.....

Weekend Trip -Kali River Rafting and Trekking.

It had been a while since I took a break and did some serious stuff. So pulled out an exciting..adventorous River rafting n Trekkin @ Kali River with 8 other guys over the long weekend (April 29-May 1, 2006).
9 of us left Bangalore in a Tempo traveller on the evening of Apr 28 and covered 524 km to reach Dhandeli next morning. Dumped our baggage at the tented cottages, Kulgi Nature Camp; had a great native breakfast and prepared ourselves for the mission.
Reached Kali Adventure camp at 8:30 am, completed the formalities, got into the jeeps and drove 40 kms to reach the place where we would begin rafting.
Kali River - Level 3
"John Pollard", our guide gave us a long training session, by the end of which we were all itching to get inside the water. At last, we all got into our respective rafts. Did some training drills and precautionary stunts and then set off on our 14km long swing with the rapids. An adventurous time except for a while when Samson and I were thrown overboard while crossing a rapid and the wind was knocked out of our lungs. We were all sun burnt and exhausted by the time we reached calmer waters.
Relaxed ourselves to some chilled beer and a sumptuous lunch post that.

Other Activities
Trekked 15 kms inside Dhandeli Wildlife Sanctuary to visit Nagzhari falls and Sinteri Rocks. Climbed up and down 730 steps to reach the Kavala Caves and did a little bit of mountain hiking too. N all this in sweltering and nerve-sapping conditions.
To top it all a 1250 km somewhat bumpy journey in just over 2 days.

Way to go:
Bangalore ->Tumkur->Hubli->Dharwad(State Highway)->Dhandeli

Is Rocket Engineering Intresting??

Is it Rocket Science a local jargon in the IT world to classify the grade of work..
Is Rocket science really intresting?? or is it going to be the same 200 million line
DOC which says which part of which config goes where to send the metal chip box in to the space..

3 yrs into IT, i have sort of a come to a Junction ..a crisis ...an internal mental one relating to work....like a middle age crisis...thinking n worrying on his lost youth n the proces to board back into the same deck
what work am i doing? How significant i am finding my work?
Is it keeping me challenging?? Is it Intresting Me??
As such my responses to all these are getting me doomed into my
own thoughts of Am i doing justice to myself??

Am I utlizing my skills ....Am I getting utilized properly...
I aint sure...Most of the IT crowd i meet up with say the same..
"Same thing maan...","Usual Sutff...","Work Goinnnn onnnn.....""too Boring"..

The Laments of techie guy..starts off as he starts warming his seats
doing more value addition in increasing the counter of 'Number of times visited"
of the popular news,jokes sites..."Vetti(Useless) Browsing" thats the term...its like soul searching on Mars...

I aint sure...where to start off...where to head towards...as i get to hear a set of standard questions coming down heavily on you ..like the early morning sleep disturned by the doordharsan's swrilling globe's theme music..

Where do you see urslvs 5 yrs from now?
What do you want to do in life???

Dude...if i am very clear in this...why would i have question likes..."What"..rather i would
be pondering or googling on "How"....

Not sure..what i want to be....i just wanted to pen down ..things tht run like a amchi mumbai suburb train too crowded..too heavy on the rails it runs up n down ..giving you the rattling noise...inside my brain.

Product Management - Am smart in making ideas to product design...n i understand technology..i keep tab of latest trends in technology....i can communicate...articulate enough to put thougts in to words..transfer it across to the other grey matter holders...Should I look ahead for this??

Oracle Apps Functional/Techno Functional :Market is Hot in this area,this would get me closer to the customer.I would understand the working and the business of different sort of companies??I would be able to design the infusement of technology into their main stream work...

A Geek Programmer : Concentrate of Java..Concentrate of Perl...Jump into ..start working...try to move up to a Architect level..
Is it gonna work out..will i be there say mid thrites....or should i go back to school???
Standford..do a MS .PHD ....be a geek....

MBA..the 3 letter magic word when lands on ur shoulders...from the top of the worlds B school ...catapults ur carrer to a new Acid high..
Do i want to do an MBA...why do i ..is it just the fame n the money n the high i think it would give me...If yes..what should i do for it....

What do i wnt to do ....Have a own software company..which builds products...which does outsourcing job...which does consultancy..or should i sell coconuts in the summer sun..probably in Goa..Marutius....Carribean Islands....;-))....

Should I chill out.. Will i get an answer thn....should get an answer....restless...as i get back to the train of thougts...

Five Point Somone

Story of an IIT ian and his Friends ,GF and Profs...
Quiet intresting..narrates the life of the simple n supercool "mug" system defyin dudes of the country's top most engg school..totally in a conversational pattern...It moves like a movie in ur head...can be made into a multiplex spl one...It brings back the memories of one's own college days...
Hello,I am Hari.I introduced myself to the fellow seniors
who were anxiously waiting to bring out the cold sweat out of mine
in the local govt wagan on the end of the first day...
First year..went by...mouth gaping moments on seeing the morning jog of the girls...marchin up n down the college campus...cladded in Olive green Mechanical Engg workshop uniforms..carrying the AK47 of engg,Drafter...the engg drawing classes which actually gave a new
insight into the number of types of pencils in production line...HB..HHB..whtever...
Hmm....story goes on.....my days were not as screwed up n super cool kickass as Chetan Bhagat's Hari n the trio...

Fight Club..one of my fav mouvee..

Fuck off with your sofa units and serine green stripe patterns, I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.

You wanna make an omelet, you gotta break some eggs.

Like a monkey, ready to be shot into space. Space monkey! Ready to sacrifice himself for the greater good.

Reject the basic assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of materiel possessions.

Sticking feather in your Butt doesnt make you a Chicken.

You have to know,not fear that some day,you are going to die.
Until you know that and embrace that , you are useless.

We are the Middle Children of History,with no purpose or place.
We have no Great War, no Great Depression,
Our Great War is a Spritual War,
Our Great Depression is out Lives..
