Music Review, Bas Ek Pal,Woh Lamha....

Once again, after a long long time, in Hindi motion picture tracks, there is something which we can finally call music. Its not very common that motion picture tracks match the standards in the terms of lyrics, music and singing as like private( or in more simple terms,Pop) albums. Music is just an added attraction in movie and that's why much of the attention is towards the movie itself. But now after a long time, there is some nice music that is out with the release of Woh Lamhe and Bas Ek Pal .  Soundtrack of Woh Lamhe and Bas Ek Pal has come up very well on the standards of an excellent quality music.  What is coming next is my opinion on the soundtrack of these two motion pictures.  Have a read:
Woh Lamhe
 Pritam Chaudhary is among the most talented new music directors which are creating waves in the music industry with their innovations with tunes.Pritam has already proved himself in the past with the all time hit sound track of movie,Gangster whose sound tracks have become popular among all age groups.  For this movie too,Pritam has come with some very nice and unique tracks for a real-life love story.  If you have seen the promos of this movie,it says that its the movie for all of those who have loved and lost.   Being a love story means that the soundtrack demands to be melodious and lyrics must touch the hearts.  You will find this complete blending in the sound track of Woh Lamhe.There are 6 original tracks with one remix which has also come up extremely well. The title track,Kya Mujhe Pyar Hai is sung by Kay Kay (who himself is one of the most talented singers in the Hindi film industry) and has already become the pulse of the nation with its superb music and great lyrics.  Tune is very nice and melodious and once you will hear the lyrics, you will find the depth of the poetry in it too.  Its truly a very nice song which you can hear as many times as you want and I assure you, you wont ever feel bored from it.  There is also an remix of the same song which has also come up very well and is getting more and more popular from the day one it has come out.Bin Tere is a very nice romantic number sung by Jawad Ahmad.Its a little slow song but that's the demand of the music and lyrics.  Very nice track once again! If you are looking for a sound track to dedicate for someone special of yours, pick this one!Highly recommended!!There is one track which is sung firstly by Kunal Ganjawala and then by Shreya Ghoshal,So Jaun Main.Again a romantic number to touch your heart and soul with its music and lyrics.  Coz the promos say that this is the movie for those who have loved and lost so to capture that emotion of pain, Pritam has come up with a truly heart touching track,Tu Jo Nahin Hai.Amazing song, that's all I can say about it!Glen John is not a very common name yet in the music industry  but I am sure with this track under his belt,he is going to leave a huge mark of his presence.  The last track,Chal Chale is also a nice song suiting perfectly with the mood and tempo of both the movie and the other tracks.To sum up the review,I shall say this only that if you are looking for some good, nice music that you can listen any time you want, go and pick up this album.  I have heard the tracks numerous times till now and more I am listening, more closer to heart they are becoming.Rating score from me, 4.8/5!
Bas Ek Pal
This album is a collection of some of the most innovative sound tracks that have come up in the recent times.  This motion picture sound track consists of 6 original tracks and 3 remixes of the original tracks.  Music is once again by Pritam who has joined forces this time with Mithoon and Vivek Phillip.  This trio has produced some of the finest music tracks in the recent times by this album.  Every track is a unique piece in itself having perfect blending of excellent music and soul touching lyrics.  I don't know for which track I would be able to say that it is lacking somewhere from some other one.  Its one album which keeps you hooked in itself with its magic.  Title track Bas Ek Pal is narrating a story in itself.  Lyrics are so nice that they touch you so deep inside. For its music there can only be just one word and that is superb!!  This song also has a remix which is made I guess in order for the demanding need for the dancing numbers.  But though its a remix, you wont find anywhere that the original essence of the song has lost anywhere.Dheeme Dheeme and Ashq Bhi are two very melodious, romantic numbers.  Perfect for the dedication again if you are looking :-)!.And if you have started to think that this album is all about lovy-dovy slow type of songs, hang on coz Hai Ishq Kya is going to make you think again coz its a full fledge dancing track with excellent foot tapping music that will force you to shake a leg with its tunes!Now if you are thinking that its just a dancing number so lyrics would be just put into it to call it a song, you are "wrong" coz there is no compromise that has been done for that.  Once again, you will find some very high class poetry blended with a very hip-hop kind of music.Tere Bin is a sad song which has been sung by Taufiq.This song has already topped the charts everywhere.Taufiq has sung this song in such a way that it touches you so much deep inside somewhere.  Lyrics, poetry, singing,its a combination of the best of all of these three things which are mandatory to make a song ever lasting.  It is also having a remix which ,just like any other remixes of the album, has not lost its original charm and essence and is just adding the beauty of the original track with the remixed tunes.Zindagi Hosh Mein is more like a Sufi song.  Its lyrics are narrating the story of the life.  Poet have tried to narrate some very intense emotions in this song and he has accomplished it very successfully.  Its also having a remix.  This whole album is master piece in the terms of the music and if you really like to hear some "good" music and looking for it, you cant afford to not to hear this album!My rating for the album?Guess ;-)?You got it right, 5/5!I cant give it anything lesser than this.  Excellent work Pritam,Mithoon and Vivek!Keep up the good music coming !!

I Am Back....

After a long and grueling road and air travel.  I guess I have traveled much longer this time than any other time before and it was like that for forever,I would be just traveling with my luggage this time:).But finally I am back home today with a little pain (that too came just  when I was about to get home and I shall tell you about it after just a little while from now) and a great sense of satisfaction that everything went well for all, the only thing that matters the most for me!
So as you know that I left on 18th of this month.  This time it was going to be a little different for me for couple of reasons.  First and far most important one was that I was going for an overseas assignment to BanglaDesh.That one reason is strongest one to make the entire tour most different from any other tours of past.  Second reason which I feel is also a very strong factor that I was going for a module which was completely new for me and I had very little or should say none in my hands to prepare for it.  Third reason was that I was not going to New Delhi straight as like usual coz I needed to stop in midway this time to collect somethings from somewhere.  Fourth reason which could be a difference making one was that I was not feeling well since my last tour and I had no time to rest and get health gain.  I needed to go coz it was already fixed and I gave my words.  So even if I wouldn't be able to be healthy, I still had to make sure that everything goes well with whatever was possible in my hands, which would be a serious matter coz it would take double of the strength and which I was already not having coz of being sick.  So I guess there were couple of reasons for calling this tour a much excited, much intense tour than the last ones.  Anyways so as I said that I needed to stop in midway to collect some of my stuff and most importantly a laptop coz I am not carrying my own  yet :-(.So I started my tour in the afternoon on 18th and left for that collecting destination.  I got my stuff collected(almost all the stuff I should say) and came at the bus stand for taking the next bus to New Delhi.  But sadly(or should say mistakenly), I forgot to pick one very important thing so even when I had already got the ticket, I had to got down from the bus.  I called the person from whom I needed to collect the entire stuff to get there and hand me over it.  After a long wait in the sun for exactly half an hour, he came and handed me over it.  I decided that I would leave from the mid place after spending an hour over there and would be there at Delhi by 8pm.But with this sudden small mistake, that plan got crushed like a piece of glass and I left for Delhi again at 5pm.Cant say that a good start right?Well you can imagine how much frustrated I would be and how many things would be there in the mind?I needed to stay in Delhi for one night because my flight to my overseas destination was in the morning.  I wanted to be in Delhi before dark coz than it would be easy for me to find that motel which was already booked for me there.  But nothing like that was going to happen and I had nothing in my hands which I could do to change that  thing now.  So it was just sit, relax and wait to be there actually now.  And that's what I did in the whole way.  I got Delhi at 9pm, way after the time I anticipated for my arrival and the subsequent course of actions.  But there was no time to sit and get upset as I needed to get that motel and for that the first thing I needed to do was to find that place where it was situated.  So as I am having no idea about Delhi and its routes for the different places, I hired an auto rickshaw which charged a whooping amount and I had again no chance to stand and argue for that coz I was getting late and dark was getting more and more.  So I agreed and we left for my "destination motel" :-).It  was more far than I was told and it took way more time than I thought in the starting when I left from Delhi bus stand.  The driver of that auto was very  friendly and we talked a lot on our way.  He told me so many things about Delhi which were new and also at the same time, "shocking" for me.  But it was a real picture and there was no gimmicks that were added in that.  It was a nice talk and I enjoyed it so much.
So in this whole chit-chat,we finally got at the told place.  There was someone who was supposed to come and pick me up from there and take me to that motel.  I called that person from the local calling booth as my phone battery was already dead:-(.After about 15 minutes, that person came and we left for the motel by walk only.  After about of 15minutes of walk, we were finally there.  Motel was alright but I was fasting so I didn't have to have any dinner.  I asked for a cup of tea though but the motel was not having any milk so they said "sorry sir" for that :-).Hard luck for me but that's okay.  Room was okay okay too.  With the grace of motel staff, air conditioner was working and room was clean.  So at least I could sleep.  It was not going to be for long coz in this whole check-in process and all that, it was already midnight and I needed to leave at about 4.30am.So without further thinking , I decided to sleep.  I couldnt sleep at all and when I was going to get finally some sleep, I got a call from the motel manager at 4am to get ready as my cab already came.  It was quick what do you say?Cab came on time and that too at this early morning time?Someone give me a pinch!OUCH!No its not a dream.  Is real so be quick and get ready.  I do get ready very quickly so no problem for it ;-).At about 4.15am, I was out from my room and after spending about 5minutes at the reception completing the check out formalities, I was finally out at about 4.20am.Cab was right there outside the motel, completely ready.  So I loaded my luggage into and left for the Delhi International Airport.  I was flying by Air India (which is now known as Indian) to BanglaDesh.Why not Bangla Airlines?Well I wont say anything about Bangla Airline but just that Be Indian, Use Indian ;-).So I got at the air port, did complete all the immigration requirements, got my luggage checked in.  Flight was on time.  After everything set and done, I was there at the waiting lounge.  That was after a very long time now that I was sitting there at the waiting lounge of the International Airport.  Sitting there brought back some memories of the times when I was sitting at the same spot and was going overseas.  Anyways that's not what I am going to tell you here( and to tell the truth  wont ever tell you at all about it).So exactly at the scheduled time, the boarding started.  Plane was okay, air hostess were nice and friendly.  We started after about 5minutes from the scheduled time.Thats okay isn't it?Food was okay too.  I wont say that it was so much good but it was alright for some one who didn't have anything in the last day ;-).I was so much tired coz I didn't sleep at all in the last night in the motel but a bad habit goes with me and that is that when I am traveling, I cant sleep in the plane or train or bus at all.  And on top of that I was not going to get any rest even when I was going to get at the Dhaka coz I had to report at the site.  I was at Dhaka for the biggest mobile service provider over there, Grameen Phone. It was my first trip to Dhaka.So I was just thinking how is everything going to be there in the terms of the place, people and most importantly how will my assignment go?In all these thoughts, finally I was there at Zia International Airport of Dhaka.Hmm cant say I liked the place in the first look.  It was a little too small to be called as an airport.  Anyhow, we had to go to the immigration counter.  The place was full with the people.  Well we were standing in the queue and were waiting for our turn to come.  It is said that when you are standing in a line, the line next to you always appears to be moving much faster than yours.  I don't know how much true it is but when I saw there were four lines that were there including my line and none of the lines were moving :-).I met a guy named Alex who is working with WHO  and was deputed in Bangladesh for 3 months.  We were standing in the adjoining lines and I was just telling him the same quote.  We both were smiling looking that none of the lines of us were moving even for an inch.  I was there at the airport at 10.10am.Well our talks got finished, the whole rush of people which was there with us was no where now but we were standing at the same places.  Now that's something which is not good right?So we did a little of cheating and we moved to the next line to us.  Well no luck was there too and that line too didn't move.Hmm so we cheated again and shifted to the next line.  It was having very few people so we thought we would be lucky over here.Hmm I said lucky a little too early:-).The immigration officer for our line just got up from his chair and disappeared!Great!!What else we needed?Well there was just one line which was left for the foreign passports so we thought we would stand there now.  In this whole scene, we had already spent one hour on the immigration counter itself.  WOW!Now that's not something you can consider as a good impression for someone who is visiting the place for the first time right?Anyways somehow we cleared immigration over there, collected our luggage and came out.  It was crazy outside.  There were so many people,not the passengers but cab drivers, hotel representatives and don't know who else who were there but all were pushing to each other, cops were pushing them and there was just shouting everywhere.  In all this, someone just came to me and displayed a banner of my name.  He was the guy from the Holiday Planet, the hotel where I was going to stay.  So I just handed over my luggage to him, sat in the car and left for the hotel.  There was so much rush over the roads and there was no such thing which we know as traffic control.  Somehow, we landed up at the hotel.  My room was not ready so just for that day they said that they are going to put me in some other room and then later they will swap me to some other room.  Well I had no time to sit and complaint coz I had to report at my work place.  So after 2 hours landing in Dhaka, I was there at the Grameen Phone office.  The place was nice.Participants were very excited about the program.  After a formal round of introduction, we kicked off the program.  All the participants were really very hard working and as we had lost some time in the initial phase of the program, they all agreed to sit for extra hours to make up for that.  I am a complete and strict vegetarian and Bangladesh is a complete non-vegetarian country.  Well my participants took complete care of that and managed to get me a veg meal every day for the lunch.  We did manage to finish up the program on schedule.  All were happy when the assignment got finished and I received some very good and unforgettable comments from the entire team.Thats most important  part for me that I managed to finish up the assignment with a smile on everyone's face.
Now my schedule over there for the official assignment was finished on 23rd and I was supposed to get back on 24th but there was no seat available in any flight on that date so I had to stay for two extra days over there.Hmm I don't like this so much but again had no choice.  And when I landed up there, there was a huge pressure that got formulated over the Bay Of Bengal which became the root cause for very heavy downpours and storms all the while when I was there at Dhaka.Great so this means I cant go out too anywhere  and I had to sit in my room :-(.So what you are going to do when you cant go anywhere, no one is there with you.  No you cant work on your pc coz that's what you did in the last 5 days.  So what is left?Yes watch television and in that too, watch and hear music which is my favorite thing to do :-).So I did hear a lot of music on MTv.I also saw two movies,Lage Raho MunnaBhai and the second movie of Tony Jaa,Tom Young Gong . Luckily for me the storm got a little mild and I requested my co-ordinator over there at Dhaka to come along with me so that I can pick up some stuff for my sister.  He promised to come sometime in the evening on 24th.Well so I had to wait the whole day.  He came but at around 8 and he had to go and meet someone in the way.  So we had to stop at that person's place.  It was a business meeting for him and I just got so bored over there.  Anyways we left from that place at about 9.20pm and to add to my joy of shopping, I came to know that all the malls get close at 10pm.Great!So I just rushed to the place, picked a few things which I liked, had a veg pizza from Domino's and we came back to hotel.  Despite all the problems, still I managed to get something.Alrite I was happy :-).
Finally the day came when I had to leave.  My flight was scheduled for 11.40am and I left the hotel at about 8am coz I didn't want to get struck in the traffic and all that.  It was a right decision and I was there at the airport at about 8.20am.It took me a while to locate the counter of Air India but finally I got there.Hmm what can be the most annoying thing that you can hear when you have checked out from the hotel, set up completely for the departure and have a connecting flight to catch?"Sorry Sir,due to some technical reasons, your flight is canceled and now it will leave from Dhaka at 10pm in the night.  We have arranged the hotel stay for you.  Please bear with us."(BUMMER)WHAT!!Don't tell me this!I am not going to stay here for a minute.  I have another flight to catch from Calcutta to Delhi and than I have bus to catch from Delhi to my place.  Well as you can see I was not happy at all to hear that and there was no chance that I was going to wait over there for almost 12 hours to catch my flight to Calcutta coz that was going to ruin my entire schedule plan and also I would be left with nothing with me to take me from Calcutta to Delhi.  So I went to the flight manager of Air India and told him my situation.  He was  a nice guy.  He listened to me and just for me only, he made arrangements of one seat in the Bangla AirLines.Wow!Thats nice.  Though I don't like the airline very much but still for that time, it had come as a life saver so there was not much that I could complain about it.  After a wait of one hour at Bangla Air line counter, I got my boarding pass.  Great!I was there in the waiting lounge after 5 minutes and there I met a guy who was going to India for the first time and also was traveling overseas for the first time.  We talked for a while.  He was going to India as a tourist.  It was nice talk to him.  Finally the plane came and we left at 10am for Calcutta.  It takes 35 minutes from Dhaka to Calcutta.  In the flight, I met Mr.Bala who is a lecturer in Banglore and also a researcher for Economics.  Quite an intelligent guy.  We talked a lot over number of things.  He told me some very strange and true facts and shared some of his experiences of his numerous overseas tours.  In all this, we were there at Calcutta airport.  He had to catch a flight to Banglore and I had to catch a flight for Delhi.  I didn't know the location of Domestic airport so he came along with me.  His flight was at 2pm and mine was at 6pm.So he left for his flight counter and I sat over there waiting when it will be 6pm:-).Its so hard to pass time when you are alone and its such a long wait.  Well I couldn't do anything so just sat over there and was watching people.  There I met a guy who was from Assam and was working in a Bio Technological company.  We started talking.  He was waiting for his flight which was originally scheduled to fly at 7.30am but didn't fly till 3.00pm.Well I nearly had the same kind of experience in Dhaka so we were just sharing our views on everything :-).Well his flight time was there so he left and I was left alone once again to sit and wait.  Somehow it became 3.30pm and my flight,  opened their counter.  I did check in.  Flight was supposed to be on the time but it got delayed for 30 minutes, thanks to the huge air traffic.  It was a good flight though.  Kingfisher is among the high class airlines of domestic sector but its worth every dime spent.  So if we remove that delay from the picture, it was a good flight.  I took the cab and than finally took the bus to Ludhiana to complete the last phase of my travel.  Everything went fine so far but just when I was about to get down from the bus, my right hand got a little twisted.That was the reason of that pain that I mentioned above.Well thats okay.Its a little hard to type though but its okay :-).So finally I am back home.On the whole this trip was a good one and as I said I managed to finish my assignment well, that is the most satisfacotry thing for me.
So what I am going to do when I am at home?Well as I didnt sleep from the last 3 nights and not yesterday too, so I shall try to sleep and have some rest( which I dont think is going to happen tonite coz my mood is not so good).Than I shall finish my blogs which I missed all this while.Anything will be after that only.Oh yes and I shall finish and publish those unfinished blogs of mine which are lying in my draft folder.So keep looking.Some random thoughts are in production:-).Till then adios!!!!

Going Offline for Few Days....

I am going offline for next few days.There is an important or I must say rather very important assignment that I have to take care of.Really tense how its going to be.Lets see.Wish me luck and pray for me.Adios....

Back Home....

After a "long" tour, I am back.  Sorry guys this time I couldn't let all you know that I am going as I normally always try to do.  I was helpless as my home internet connection was down for 2 days and I was so much busy in my friend Manjeet's wedding which happened just one day prior to my this trip.  So literally had no time(and facility) to intimate you.
So I left on 4th of this month.  This time it was a little different as I had to stop in the way to pick someone as he was also going with me to the same place( well this is what I had in mind).So I started in the morning at 8am and took the bus to the prefixed destination.  We were supposed to meet at the railway station at 10.30am so I planned accordingly and was there at about 9.45am coz I don't like to wait and moreover don't like at all that someone else is doing the same coz of me.  So I was there and called the guy.  Guess what?He told me that he is not coming.  No not that he wasn't coming with me on that day in that train but he wasn't coming at all.  He changed his plan and now he was supposed to come after 3 days from that day.  I already left my bus coz I had to stop there and there was some stuff that I had to collect from that guy.  So I had no other choice than to wait over there station for him or for someone from his side to come and deliver me my stuff.  Well may be what ever I said about waiting for someone just now was a bit too early coz that 'delivery guy' came after exactly one hour when I got there.  For one hour, I was standing there for him to come as he told me over the phone that he would be there in 15 minutes.  Yeah yeah!GRRR!!!!Anyway finally he came and I got my stuff.  So now the next question was that whether I am taking a bus or going by the train.  Normally I always take a bus and go.  That's the most simple way out for me.  But I already had wasted one hour from my schedule time for the arrival at the airport and I was already there at the railway station so I decided to get the ticket for the next train to Delhi.  By this time it was already 11.15am and train was supposed to leave at 11.40am and be there at Delhi at 2.00pm.Ok so this would cover up my loss of that one hour too.  One of the guys from that local place was also going to Delhi in the same train.  So he came along with me.  He assured me that the train is good and will be Delhi on time.Alrite I am convinced now so go get the ticket!Train is on time!!WOW!I am going to cover my loss and will be in schedule, got someone to be with in the travel as a bonus too.  Now that's a nice start.  What do you say?Right!But we have just started so have patience ;-).
So the train was there on its schedule time and we were there in it.  It started with a good speed.  Seats were comfortable.  Food was getting served but as I was fasting so it was not of much interest for me that how it was?I had a cup of coffee with that guy that's all.  He talked about a lot of things.  Some things were really nice and I would remember them too for the rest of my life.  That guy had seen life in all the forms that it can present to one so his words were not the quotes from the books but they were the facts came out from real life experiences.  I always respect those people who come out after beating and conquering all the hurdles and problems in their ways and he was one of those kinds so it was nice to have a chat with him.  In all this coffee sipping and talking , suddenly we smell something foul.  It was like something is burning is somewhere very close and the smell was coming to us even.  Now that's not really possible, I mean we were in the train and its running in full speed.  How can any smell be there in the compartment with such a great pressure of air and all that?In all this thinking, suddenly this whole smell and everything became too much and we could feel the heat even.  Something was definitely wrong somewhere.  The train stopped!All came out to see what happened and guess what?It was nothing else on fire but the compartment next to our compartment.  Its air conditioner belt caught fire with the friction and it was getting more and more furious.  So they stopped the train.  Now the whole picture was clear.  There was a big wave of panic among all the passengers.  It was the first time that I saw and faced something like this in my life till yet so it was a good shock for me too.  Well after some time, finally they repaired the belt and stopped the cooling and announced that there wont be a breakdown and train would be able to make its journey to Delhi.  What a relief to hear that!So we were back on the track again.  But in this whole period, we lost another 40 minutes.  Remember my flight is on pm and its on scheduled time only.So you can well understand that I was counting every minute.  Well still there was a hope as it was only 12pm and train's scheduled timing was 2pm so I told my self not to worry, I shall make it.Alrite so back on the seats with that guy,talked about this whole incident again than we both were sitting and waiting to be there at Delhi.  Oh I didn't tell you that he also had to catch another train to Bombay from Delhi at 4pm so eventually now he too was getting a little worried though he didn't mention it on me.Train was running but not in the speed it usually picks up.  Heart beats were getting more and more faster as the time was passing.  In all this, time for the arrival at the Delhi was coming near and it was 2pm.Train was still was quite far from station and it stopped!Reason?There was no free station on the Delhi station so it had to wait for it.  Great what we else we needed?So finally it landed us on Delhi station at 3pm.Good just 2 hours to catch the flight.  I came out from station, took the auto and left for airport.First time I was wishing that flight would be late but if what you wish, you get all that, life would be much more simple isn't it?So I was there at the airport at 3.45pm.Rushed to my air-line counter ( Jet Airways), did my baggage check and asked the schedule.  Guess what?Flight was on time only ;-).But I was there on the airport, did the check in so I was now relaxed.  So after all this,adventure( if you want to call it so), I took my flight.  As usual it was okay.  Food was supposed to be good but I was fasting so again no idea coz I just had one apple with a cup of coffee.Airhostess were friendly.  On the whole a good flight.  So without any heartbreaking news from captain, we were there at Hyderabad.My cab was waiting for me.  Manager of my favorite guest house,Hill View Homes ,Sunil came personally to fetch me.  Now that's something I call real hospitality.  So all set, we talked about a lot on the way.Didnt know when we got over there.  My room was ready so I just got in as I was so tired and needed some rest for the next day.So the best thing to do is sleep!
Next day, assignment started with a little quirk as there was some problem with the network.  So the first 20 minutes were a bit uncomfortable for both me and partispants.But then things sorted out and we were back on the track.  Everything went well for the next 2 days till the time I didn't feel like my throat is aching a little.  Well its okay, I said, it would be fine.  But no it didnt.So I landed up with a very bad cough, cold, fever and body ache!Good!And my assignment is on the way.  Good good!Well I had so many medicines but the thing which I needed the most, I was not going to get that and that was rest .  Not something really good for me and also for the assignment, I must say.
In all this, days were passing and I was getting more and more sick coz there was a huge cooling in the office which I couldn't avoid, I had to speak louder when I was not able to talk even.  But in all these not-so-good things happening, there was one good thing that happened.  As it is said when you travel, you tend to meet a lot of people and if you are lucky enough, you meet some really amazing people who impress you with their personality.  I met Fazal just like that only.This time, there were another 2 people whom I met.  One was Oracle APAC team member, Sam Maddan.Not so friendly but really dedicated to his work, intelligent and very down to earth.  As I said, he was not very friendly so there were not much talks between us.  The only time we would meet, was breakfast time.  But he was so much focussed in his work that impressed me so much.  He would sit for 2/3 hours in the office to prepare for the next day.  Coz he was told just on time that he had to go for his assignment, it was a little hard for him to prepare but he did his best in that much time too that he had.  One must be prepared for everything and try his best to deliver the best in all the timings whether they are favorable or not.Thats what I saw in Sam and I would try to apply that in myself also.  He was one of the persons that impressed me.  Second person whom I met and who impressed me so much was this lady from Banglore,natively from Canada, Sally.What a great lady!She was the soft skill instructor, not a technical one.  But everything about her was so much impressive.  She was basically from Canada but got married in Banglore 25 years ago and now is settled there only.  I haven't seen many ladies who are in the professional field and leave a mark of their professional as well as personal greatness.  She was the 3rd lady that I have seen till now.  It was a great experience to get to know her and learn so much from her.  So somehow someway my assignment got finished and that too with a good score.  Thank God so much for that!This time I was really tense for it but I managed to come out with the same kind of score like my last ones.  This time it was so much relieving for me as I managed to finish the assignment with a great difficulty so its the best for me I would say.
Alrite so now I am at home.  How I am feeling?Not well at all.  I went for the checkup to my family doctor.  He gave me medicines and one good scolding free of cost :-).So I am now on medicines but still one thing that I need so much, yeah rest, I wont get that as I am scheduled for a very important assignment which is starting from 19th.This one is so much important and I am really so much worried for it coz I dnt have the material for it.  So despite that I must be sleeping now, I have to sit and download notes, do the practise for this assignment.  Hopefully it will go absolutely fine and my sickness wont effect it at all.  Fingers crossed!!
There is so much that is lying there in my "to-write" folder.  I shall try to write about some before I leave.  Hope fully, I shall finish it all once I finally will be at home from this next assignment.  Wish  and pray for me folks.  Really need it!

Finally finished....

My biggest problem is that I am not having my own laptop at the moment.  So whenever I am traveling,I miss  to read my favorite blogs.When I come back,I am welcomed by a huge list of blog items in all of my blog list.Its like an exercise to finish them :-(.Now you must say that why not I read them at work?Well here comes another problem and that is principles.  Never read anything personal on work which includes  blogs too.Strange?I know it is but cant help it now.  Anyway, as I am back( you know I am back home right ;-), I was reading my list of blogs.Just now I finished all of them.  I am happy?Definitely I am :-).Now there is some time to do some other work.  What is that?Write some of  my own thoughts, listen some music or the best and most difficult of all,do nothing
;-).Enjoy the weekend.
