Starting A New Session With Fever….

It’s been three days since I have come back from my last session in which  I had encountered an earthquake as well. Except for that, the session went absolutely fine. I met some of the most amazing delegates and it was a very big coincidence that there were 4 delegates whom I had met already in some other places. It was a very VERY fun filled 5 day long week in which there were lots of laughs but also there were many many technical discussions as well. But I am so glad that the session went really fine. Though I haven’t seen the formal feedback yet but I had been told by couple of the delegates that how much they liked the session and this short email that I got after about 2 days says a lot IMO.

Hi Aman,

Now I don't have fear from RAC.

Thanks a lot for clearing concept of RAC.

I don’t think anything else is needed to mention that the class went okay! I am so thankful to all who came and also said so many kind words! It was a pleasure and honour to meet you all and I really hope and wish that I meet with all of you once again in the near future soon!

After such a rocking week, I came back with a very happy mood and then , all of a sudden, the stupid fever caught hold of me!

It’s been 3 days since I have got the fever and I am just so sick and tired of having medicines. And the worse part is, today or I should say, tonight I am going to start a web session at 10pm IST which would go till 6am as I am going to start a new session today. There were already so many issues in the logistics for this session in addition to me not being well and I am just so worried how this session would go? I shall come to know in less than 3 hours from now but it’s not an easy thing to talk when you are not well, trust me!

Encountering The Earthquake….

Yep, and it came all of a sudden today when I was with the delegates in the session. I am delivering a very tough and advanced session BTW at the moment and the delegates are really good both professionally and personally! Today, two of them took me out for lunch and there we met one delegate who was in my session 3 years ago. Also, there are two delegates out of which one was in my session 2 years and she immediately spotted me and very kindly mentioned in the room that she was very happy when she came to know that I am the instructor for this tough course and also added that I am really good, which was very kind of her to say! There is another delegate who attended my presentation a year ago and told me today about it! So overall, it’s a great session going on, tiring but really good!

Hmm I think I have missed the point of the post. Okay, so we were in the room and one of the delegates was actually standing and explaining a concept. We were all sitting in front of him and were listening to him and my seat was in a corner , just opposite to him. All of a sudden, I felt that my chair is moving and quite heavily. Before I could say anything to anyone, alarms started buzzing and the security started shouting that all must run downstairs right away! And we all did run away to the ground floor and over there it wasn’t just our tower whose people were there but the rest of the 3 towers were also got vacant and the people of those towers were also downstairs. Though nothing bad did happen but it was a little chaotic for some time and it seemed all were a little confused and shocked with that sudden blow of the earthquake. Finally, all seemed to be settled down and we got back to our room, in one piece and finally got back to the work like nothing ever happened :=) . Thankfully, nothing did happen, in real too!

Time to go to bed as there is a tough day awaiting tomorrow!

Its’ Been A While….

Yes, it’s been quite some time since I have updated my blog. Last time, I had taken this much of leave from updating it when my dad passed away. This time, fortunately things are not so bad but still, some how I am not able to have a mental status to sit back, write and update it. Even now, when I am writing this post, a weird kind of uneasiness is there inside me. May be I am just being mad or may be, it’s just some bad time frame. Am not sure what it is actually but just know this that I am not in a good state of mind. I am not really able to spend time (quality) on my work, on doing any research or as a matter of fact, any thing productive. I know I must pull together myself and start doing my work and I am going to get back to business very soon.
