Anish Asokan, The Great

Anish has been pressing me to writing something about him...so here I go.

There are some people who stand apart from the crowd. Beethoven, Einstein, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, yours truly, etc have all been specially endowed people. Now Anish obviously doesn't belong to our league, but that doesn't mean he is not gifted.

Anish has a way with people and people related issues. This became apparent during our early days of acquaintance. Any problem and Anish would be using his skills to navigate us out of it. Soon we got so used to him that we would be paralyzed without his presence. So we informally promoted him to our in-house HR Rep! I asked him to pursue an MBA with specialization in HR. He has been contemplating it ever since.

The other thing nice about him is that he never loses his temper or patience. We pester him with all sorts of requests, both reasonable and unreasonable, and he never declines to help. What's more, like me, he too is an occupant of the nascent blogosphere. Here's wishing this gem of a person all the best in his endeavors!

Thanks for the comments Deepanjan.Well, i extend the thanks also for the mba thing as such.

Not long ago, i was known for my hot-tempered nature- it only comes up only when a wrong or a evil-knevil plays on.It raises my anger to a level called hades!.I had several rivalries in my lifetime and looking back ,yes i won the war ,although i lost some battles!.My high school vice principal for misusing her position and her arrogance,the teacher who once asked my reason for being a student( he had to reverse everythin he said that day, and still today he still ranks me as one best student of his lifetime!).My certain classmates for doing the wrong!
Leadership-well from age of 6 , i was a leader dejuro or defacto.In high school days we had a gang "generation next" and i was gang leader.To this day, still the gang is together and best part we are still doin things in the way it should be!

But i never dreamt of a professional life nor abt a family life(girlfriend!) for i had a great dream to pursue and by my ways no gals could be impressed and i am not an impreesive flowery person!.
But things have changed and now i live to change the world according to the slogan"for the betterment of world for the virtue of good and holiness "

Deepanjan i promise u that, someday somewhere,sometime the gangster issue will b done and those in that will visit ASOKA's Hades!.It is devil of devil speaking up!.I promise u that-and it is Asoka's promise!

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still…

Searching for someone

I remember hearing a song by someone in a movie with Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves as the protagonists. Charlize is a free-spirited girl who is terminally-ill while Keanu is an ambitious lawyer who is captivated by Charlize's ways. The most memorable thing about the movie, though, was the song. I tried to ferret some information about the song yesterday, and its unknown singer.


Searched for Charlize Theron via Wikipedia. Browsed through her filmography and zeroed in on Sweet November (2001), which rung a bell. I didn't remember the name of the movie and hoped this was the one.Clicked on Sweet November. The plot confirmed my doubt! This was indeed the movie I was looking for.Searched for Sweet November via Yahoo! Music. Managed to find the original motion picture soundtrack.Clicked on the link. Found the list of tracks. There were 13. Now which one was I looking for?Visited Amazon and searched for Sweet November. Gotcha! The list of tracks, however, gave no information about …
