YO........!!




Yesterday was another great day at myproject ,mycompany when i came to realize and comprehend the full meaning of ' hard work pays'...As most of you might be knowing(in case u did not know...u know now..),we at myclient had a party at Le Meridian yesterday...We were invited through repeated mails,announcements,numerous instant messages's and the client team when they came to meet is..I was very happy at the prospect of one more oppurtunity of 'boozing...eating...n njoyin...'Of course...at some one else's expense..And Jackson's(no..not MIKE...but my colleague) performance was there too...so it became a much anticipated evening......when ..'ip-instant message' struck...when barely 30 mins was left for the buses to leave for the party...we got a multicast...
---------------------------------------------------
Message for Very new joinees: Regarding Party in the evening,:

Sorry for the inconvenience

everything was gone...I had joined exactly on August 1st..but we are software engineers...we never give up...and if its for free booze......Enquires into the Devolpment team revealed that they had no such problem......Mails and ips shot from my Work Station...putting forward the case of 'unfortunate AUG 1 joinees...."arguments...requests....discussions...and at the end when only a few mins were left forthe buses to leave...another message
----------------------------------------------------
message from:Team LeadREAD AUG 1 AS AUG 28
INCONVENIENCE REGRETTED
----------------------------------------------------
the battle was won...but the war with bottles was still left....and after a " plunkada binkada" ride through Pune's horrible roads we reached 'LE MERIDIAN
'--------------------
notice:
todays special--theme -Moroccan evening with belly dance...
--------------------
wow...!!!
but the next notice was just near.
.-------------------
MyCompany DINNER AT 1ST FLOOR MAJESTIC
-turn Right and take stairs
-------------------
DEJECTED ...we sat through the meeting..but we managed to grab seats near the parlour itself.......but to be let down.....only beer was served....total dejection...low morale.....why does this world exist after all....??thoughts of various contours tunneled through my mind....why ?...why?...why?the mails,the ips's...arguments..requsets...all in vain....after all those hours of sleeping on my workstation...reading newspapers..checkin mails and.roaming around...the evening i waited for was just a formal party to congratulate people whom i did not even know...save a few exceptionally popular people like " NAIR SANTHANU SASIDHARAN'....(i know him..because he is my room mate..)names were being announced....applause...hurrahs...thronging the air...beer engil beer ....i reconciled to my fate...when suddenly..." KANNAN UDAYARAJAN'.
--------applause-------

YES!!!!i was also a winner...a person who did it...winner of EXCELLENCE AWARD...a person who 'EMPOWERED MY DOMAIN..............it was ecstastic...motivation given on paper to all...
All those hours of sleeping, mailing...pondering....it was not in vain...I coudn't believe that sleeping over tons of documentation can eventually transform the lives ofmillion people across the world.I had empowered healthcare....The night seemed so bright...the moroccan dance too petty to bother my great thoughts about healthcare..beer gushed through my veins.....life afterall was not so bad...Later i came to know that Arun ,Bijiyos,jackson..minu..santhanu..shikha ..and a 100 others had all empowered healthcare alongwith me..in the alphabetical order ofcourse...
