As i failed to gather all the energy that i actually required to put together a post in my blog every time from the past one month, i lost hope. I was scared what if i totally lost interest in this. But even this scary thought couldn't really get me down to writing. Forget writing!!! I was not even visiting my page to read blogs from other friends that i have!! Imagine!'
When i published "Things that I've Been doing Lately". Things were way too complicated to explain. It was more of a frustrated writing that i had come up with in a rather subtle funny way. However, am glad i was able to do that. In just a couple of days things changed again. They seemed a welcoming change provided the amazing time that i was having sitting all day in front of my 3-year old computer. This particular change was something that made me happy and sad at the same time. I was not really keen on going with this flow of change yet i had no option but to force my way into it. To be precise, I joined a Call Center - Hewlett Packard Technical Support. I was taught the skills to master the art of customer support. Hmmmm... !!! After slogging my ass out for 4 years in engineering with a percentage which just manages to come inside the so called "descent-not bad-kinda percentage category", i had got a very good job in software development in mysore which i merely left or rather turned my face after 4 days from joining. *Please Don't ask me the Reason*.. I know!! i Know!! i was hastyy!! i knww!!! After hearing so many things from so many people from the time i've quit....Am just waiting for a day when the dog that sleeps outside my house to pounce on me and ask me why i left the job in mysore??? Don't be surprised if i pen down that event when it happens!!!!
After such disastrous decisions that i made in life, what can one say or even help? I was left with no other option but to take this Technical Support job. Which i did on the March 25th of this year. Things were calm and steady as days passed by. I went on to learn how.. [HP] is pronounced as "aeech Pee" (American Style)and not "Hech Pee" and How A stands for Alpha and not Apple and how B stands for Bravo and not Ball. Somethings were really amusing..Like how American women hate it when they're referred to as "Madam"(*there are reason for it*). As far as i know people back here in India love it and are overjoyed when someone refers them by "Madam".
This supposedly being my first job that got me a salary of just over 15k was something that brought joy and something more that cannot be explained. I was Happy..bought stuff for myself..Like a watch that i always waited to buy the day i get my first salary.. it didn't materialize with the earlier job but it did with this job!!!! All said and done!!I had to accept the reality!! Though people working here convince themselves calling it a technical support job!!! but from within everyone knows it.. its a call center after all!!!
As i said the above dialogue to my friend.. he came out with a sizzling one liner from a movie that goes like this "Kaam Tho Kaam Hotha Haii..!! Jaisa Tu Doctor hai Waise he Apun Gangster Haii" ..!!! Made sense right??
But not all things in your life that makes sense makes you earn your daily bread.
As i said days passed.. and this is was the time when i was struggling to put together a post!!
Either i was short of ideas or short of the motivation factor. I was turning into a zombie when lighting struck on the day of May 19th when i was called for an interview on the following day!!!
Thats when i remembered the "Reshot" thing that the almighty told me in my Falling Slowly poem. Remember?????
The clouds went dark the next day the May 20th showing hints of rain and as i kept watching.. it started drizzling the day after the 21st!! All was done!! I was all ready, for the rain to pour and was just gearing up to jump out in the rain!! When the clouds cleared all of a sudden.. but it kept drizzling.. !! I was in a state of shock...!!! The clouds cleared completely... but still it kept drizzling.. !! it was 24th of May when i gave up on the clouds.. but it still kept drizzling...!! I wondered how the lightning just brought about drizzles and no rain!! Rain is what i expected!! Rain is what everyone expects!! right????
Just when i was about to give up on the hope that i had with the lightning that had struck, someone held my hand and whispered "Wait... I know it will Rain!! Come what may!! Rain will come down and come down hard!!! The lightning was struck especially for you!! Wait!! Don't Give up!! "
On the 27th of May was when my phone rang!! As i stood watching..it started pouring!!! Pouring hard every second!!! It was the very rain..that i craved for every single day that one week!! I wasn't in a position to believe what i was actually witnessing but it had happened... !!
All i can say at that point of time is.. its just the beginning!!!
Now coming back to the person responsible for that lightning is SM!!! Am not sure if SM is Okay with her name coming here!! So I'll keep it as SM!!! Though given a chance i would love to expand it right away!!! Thanks a ton for getting things done for the lightning to strike!!!
Guys, I got a job in Yahoo!
There is no such thing as chance and what seem to us as the merest accident, springs from the deepest source of destiny.
