Yes I am back.  You must be thinking what this “but” means? Well nothing to do with my program.  This but is for some other things which are making me so much  upset. I wont talk about my journey this time coz there are some other things, some people which are making me so much upset.  Some from the present and some from some time back are making me so much pist off. I guess I am learning lessons and I need to learn quick. That would be all for now folks. I am signing off for the moment.

True Words…. September 20, 2007

Some times, in very small words too, someone says a lot and what does he/she says that actually is so true. I got very beautiful poetry in a comment which if some one understands, speaks the truth behind love and the fate of lovers. Thanks Sidhu for posting them! They are written by Waaris Shah who wrote fire in his poetry. These lines are in Punjabi and I shall explain the meaning of them in English afterwards. Have a read:

Sir dittian baaj na ishq pakke,

Te eh nai sukhalian yaarian ve!

Ohde jakham na hashar tak hon raazi,

Jinna laggian prem katarian ve!

And its meaning in English is:

Without giving your life, love cant be done,

And love is not at all an easy thing to do!

They suffer till the eternity and their wounds hurt too,

Those all who got slayed by the knife of love!

How true the words are isn’t it? Yes those who love, they have to suffer coz love will make them suffer for the rest of their lives but that pain is bearable. The worst fate is of all those who have loved and got hurt by none other but their own love. Those wounds who are given by some one whom we loved more than ourself too, they hurt the most and they keep on hurting till the breaths wont stop and heartbeats wont die. Yes that’s what love is all about, an ocean of fire and one has to swim into it to get through it.

Thanks Sidhu once again!

Feeling Empty (Once Again)…. September 20, 2007

I am not sure why it happens at times that you just feel so much empty from inside. It feels some times that there is nothing new happening, there is no inspiration to write some thing new. Its not some thing which happens so often but that time period when it happens , its not good. At least I don’t like it. It makes me feel blocked and stops me from saying anything. I just hope and wish that I get over from this emptiness as soon as possible but I am not sure how long it will take.

Clean Sweep…. September 9, 2007

After a long time, Indian Hockey team has played like what it should have. India has won Asia Cup 2007   and have crushed Korea with an astonishing 7-2 goal defeat. Korea, despite being a very good team and having much high world ranking compared to India, looked a bit lost in the whole match. This was the second defeat of  Korea to India in this cup. Throughout the cup, India maintained an amazing unbeaten spree. It was a beautiful display of technique shown by Indian team with which they have crushed Thailand with an jaw-dropper 16-0 goal defeat. I congratulate Indian Hockey team once again. Its really a day to celebrate but without forgetting that still there is long way to go as its 2008 World Cup coming ahead. Winning fights is good but winning war is some thing which is always counted. But success is a success and for that I give my heartiest wishes to India team!

Encounter With A Lover…. September 9, 2007

The other time,on my way to Delhi, I was in the bus. I was not going for an assignment of my own but rather to attend a training of RAC. Anyways it was nothing unusual in the travel except I was not wearing my shoes but my Punjabi Juti. In all this excitement that I am going to take up a training, suddenly the bus stopped with jerks. Driver immediately got down and within moments, he informed that some component of bus got broken and as its a major one so bus wont start. Great! Well I was not going to catch any flight that time so I was standing much calm. There was a lot of hue and cry from the fellow passengers that how they will get to Delhi  and all that? Conductor made us stand in groups of five and started stopping the buses which were going to make us get into them. We were 5 guys in our group and we decided to let all the other groups having ladies, kids and couples to go first. Well in the last we also got one bus for us and as  a result of our patience I guess, we all got good seats and also there was music in the bus. I was sharing seat with a young guy( I am young too :-). Its just he was younger than me in age in 5 years) who started from Ambala and was going to Delhi, back to his home. We started with normal talk like where we are going and all that. I asked that guy ( I am sorry I cant recall his name so I shall just call him “guy” only) what made him to come to amabala as it was the first time that he had come to ambala. He told me that he had come all the way from Delhi to Ambala to see his gal who lives there. She didn’t have a cell phone with her and there was a lot of problem that they face when they want to talk each other. So he decided that he will buy a phone and will go and give to her. That’s why he went from Delhi to her place. He told me that they are seeing each other from last 6 years, since the time he was mere 16 and the gal was 15. In all this period they met for very few, I guess 5 times only if memory serves me correct. He told there were lots of gals who were after him but he picked her only coz of her simplicity and nice nature and he loves truly and madly. When I asked about that whether she loves him with the same passion or not, he said yes she does and they are both willing to get married. He told me that gal’s younger sister already knows him and treats him as her sister’s husband. He said that he has made her meet with his mom also with an excuse that she is a friend who wanted to visit his home. Well I was smiling all the while listening to him. He asked me that why am I smiling? I replied that nothing like that I am finding it amusing but I am happy for both of them and I wish them both good luck and shall pray that they both get what they want. He said that they may not be having a smooth road ahead but they are determined and promised not to leave each other , doesn’t matter what will happen in the future. Well it was nice to hear that I must say.  Its not many I have seen who dare to say that for their loved ones. When we were approaching Delhi, he said that he is very much surprised that for a gal only, he has done all this. When I was asked what does this suppose to mean , he said that he got up at 3am last night, took a bus and got at her city. He stayed in a temple for 2 hours, had only a cup of tea with 2 bread toasts and than met her. It was the first time that he went so far for someone and that too for a gal.  He said to me that he doesn’t think that there wont be any guy in this world who would have done the same what he did? I asked what makes him think that way? He said how its possible  that some one would go all the way to see his gal with 4 hours spent in the bus, with no food and sleep at all, sitting and waiting in the temple. I said that there may be some others also. He said he doesn’t think so. Guys don’t have the guts to do that much for just a gal. I just smiled and replied yes you are right that there are not any who would travel all the way to their gals place just to see her without bothering about themselves. I told him that he must keep this spirit alive all his life as its not a destination that he would get his love but its a journey that they both have to travel along with each other.  He asked me that how about me, don’t I have any love in my life? I smiled and replied that I love my work and may be I am not so much suitable to have it either. After that I smiled and pretended that I am sleeping so there wont be any further questions about this topic.
Today and even after that day since I met him, it makes me smile thinking about his comments that there wont be any other guy who would travel from one state to another in a bus, first time stepping out of his home for such a long journey and that all too done just for a gal whom he loves. Well I am not sure that there are or there are not any who would have done the same. But I am sure that if he would look and search a little harder, he may find one or two who would had done the same for their gals. That’s another story that what happened to them may not match with his own story :-). But it was nice to see someone that much dedicated for his love. May God bless both of them!
 
 

Back At Home…. September 6, 2007

Yes I got back today morning and I am so much tired. Since morning I wanted to sleep but I couldn’t as my friend Raghbir was there at home and we were talking about a lot of things. Anyways that’s all together a different story. Somehow, I was able to manage the tour and the assignment well. The response that I got from the people present there, it was very satisfying. Also the same was confirmed to me by the marketing personnel also. On the whole, it was a good ( tiring although) tour. I managed to end it with a smile on everyone’s face and that’s what is most important.
On a personal note, things at home are not so well. I wont be talking about here about what has happened but I just wish and pray to God that he makes everything fine as soon as possible. Its kills to see your closest person in pain and is much worst when you really have to sit and just watch helplessly.

Back With RAC…. September 1, 2007

Yes I am back today.  Well not for long coz I shall be leaving to  handle a already messed up assignment.  But about that later.  I was out for program and I got back today morning.  Good news is that I got a chance to attend Oracle 10g RAC training. Initially I didn’t like the idea much as I was expecting some hurdles coming up as I was not attending this training as a normal student.  On a special request,this opportunity was given to me and as there is no free lunch anywhere, everything comes with a price and the price of this favor was that I was not allowed to ask any question in the class and was not allowed to do any hand-on too as there was no cluster setup done for me.  Well when I got there at the premises, I came to know that the instructor is Guru Parsad who attending one of my trainings and we gelled well with each other. So it was a little comfort for me that Guru was there. And the best thing that could happen to me was that Guru allowed to me attend the training as like any other normal student which was really needed for me to understand( in the very initial stages) this complex technology and also with a little power of my nature, I managed to get a working cluster also for me ;-).Don’t ask how I did that coz that’s a trade secret :-).Guru was taking this class for the 2nd time only but he did a good job in the explanation.  Though he still needs a lot of work to be done but with just 2 classes that he got to attend for himself, with 10days preparation, it was a brilliant job that he did, I must say.  On the last day, he shared his experience with me in break that how he was not allowed to speak a word even, not to bring his books in the training room, not to do any hands on and also how, even after the class he was not given much time to clear his doubts?And that’s why he didn’t want to do the same for me as he himself knew how hard it is when you are just sitting with your mind getting filled with  doubts but you are not allowed to ask a single thing.  I know this can be a disaster for a fresher who is going to understand and see this complex but great piece of technology in action. Well I am really thankful to Guru to be kind on me and clearing most of my doubts. It was a long due thing for me and its one of the most wanted technologies also at the moment. I have just taken first step towards it.  Hope I shall be able to understand it some what. Lets see how things go?
