Strange Year - 2008

After hearing on numerous TV Channels in past one week, I am compelled to start this blog of mine with this line... " Today is the last day of the year 2008" ..... the year which was a strange in its own sense, I discovered and re discovered myself time and again. There is a lot that has happened in this one year and I am sure each one of us has the same thoughts about it, one more interesting that's common between most of us is the pace with which this year passed :P

Anyways, let me share good part of the year, It all started on 8th Jan, when I got my first job, after an interview where i asked more questions to interviewers than they asked me. There is this strange thing about interviews, you can never know where you went wrong in an interview and mostly the one you think you have screwed a bit would be the successful one.

The next and final semester @ IIT went by faster then any other semester, nights were shorter then ever, even the chilly winter of Delhi couldn't restrict us to go for a 2 KM walk at 3 in the morning, Room parties were a more frequent events and each party had an emotional ending. The last time we walked from college to hostel was the longest it had ever been in past 4 years.... and I should stop it now or else the post would be renamed to "Farewell to my college life" !!!

What happened next was not unexpected but it was still strange, I landed up in Hyderabad starting a new phase of my life where I would be earning, supposedly more independent then ever, but it didn't turn out to be that way and the only reason is being alone in a crowdy place of lonely people !!!

Surprisingly, transition from college to work not so difficult for me which is the case with most of the graduates, may be because I never tried to adjust with the 'system' or tried to look for the loop holes in the 'system', I am always happy working with my strengths..anyways that doesn't matter..what matters is I am doing good and happy to buildup on my confidence.

Last couple of months have been entirely dedicated to the "Corporate world" and the most used phrase here is " that's how it goes" and no one gives a shit about it !!! One more good news is; in spite of all the Recession in US, Terrorist Attacks in Mumbai and Laying off across the world, I got my first increment even though it is a negligible one, I was also given a minimum bonus for my "satisfactory" work !!

On an whole , 2008 was a strange but eventful year with not much of surprises, lots of energy, experience and emotions !!

Carrying the same Enthusiasm, Excitement and Expectations to 2009 !!! :)

Wish you all a very happy and a prosperous new year, May god bless all of us and lets hope that we get to see less number of terrorists attacks and lot less companies filing for Bankruptcy !!

Last but not the least, I picked up blogging in 2008 and hoping to reach new heights on web world in 2009 !!!

Cheers :)

P.S : It might not be my last blog of the year !!!
