Before you start making dreaming about a brilli-yaant security flaw in the heart of google’s Page Rank (Pigeon rank, anyone?) Algorithm that yours truly discovered and has sent all of google’s engineers into a tizzy, let me remind you that this is my blog, so this post is bound to be lame!
Okay, coming to the matter: Google! A company that took the world by storm in the early 2000’s; a company known for its innovation in web services; a company known to hire only the best of the engineers! But yet a company thats not got its grammar right! Man, send them to kindergarden, I say!! Larry and Sergey, better watch out!
Once upon a time, in the sunny realms of Chennai (or Madras as he still liked to call it) lived a happy-go-lucky kid who just wanted to enjoy life. (In fact sunny was/is an understatement cause the land had never seen its temperature dip below 25C and kid never got the chance to associate anything but people’s reactions with the word “cold”) And then it happened… God was apparently displeased with the kid for no particular reason and so he subjected the kid to 2 years of rigorous imprisonment. With no company whatsoever, the kid decided to immerse himself into his books, or so he thought! Those two years in jail turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the kid met people whom he could actually call “friends”, and of course he met a person whom he would never, ever forget in life!
The two years in jail whizzed by and without knowing it, the kid was actually having fun! Or so he thought! God was displeased once again, jails are not meant for having fun right? So along with his trusted sidekick Murphy, he screwed the kid where it hurt the most and as a corollary packed him away to a far off land, previously unheard of!
The author acknowledges the inspiration provided by a certain friend and would also like to add that he is a shameless git without an ounce of creativity!
I have previously exclaimed that “Love at first sight” is more of a cliched feeling than a real emotion. Yes, I have great pleasure in announcing that I still go by my “words of wisdom” (or whatever nonsense you wish to call them) but yet, last month, my heart hovered closest to that cliched phrase. That was when…… I first met Maria.
It was a long morning by anyone’s standards. After a tiring session in a library and some quickfire cricket(which is what I was doing all these days), I returned home and dressed in my very best to meet someone whom I knew would spend the next few years with me. When I first met her, I have to admit, she didn’t exactly look like what I had designed her in my mind, but then again (after a woefully pathetic 7), designing was never my thing, was it? She was pretty no doubt … she didn’t really have striking features but she was the kind to whom my kind would be drawn to, at first sight. Simple is beautiful 🙂
