On Road - The Happenings!

Of late Sis and I have been travelling by car to and fro office and the reason behind this post is to let people know the fun we've been going through doing this. Pun intended as well not. Am I confusing you with such an open ended statement?

It all started about 3 weeks ago with my job change. 30 kilometers daily, one way though, in a rush mad city like Bangalore is no joke for an individual who performs the 8 hour work routine - 5 days a week. Since this routine would be shared by 2 of us, car pooling did not sound a bad idea. It also happened to work this way out mainly because there is no transportation facility provided by the new company. The jams and the chaotic drivers on the streets drive us crazy every day. Not to forget crackpots who plunge out of nowhere right in front of the wheels of our mighty Santro Xing. Auto fellows zoom-on to equal Narain Karthikeyan!


The gigantic Hi-tech buses flood this city's roads every day and its drivers declare themselves the king of the roads. OMG! I can’t explain the skills they've acquired or inherited to pull the vehicle that is so huge up and ahead of the rest on the road. Between the rock and roll of variety vehicles our xing walks the ramp making sure she is safe and so are her contents.

The monsoon's set in early and this is causing more havoc than before. It adds to the mess of the construction work that's going on every nuke and corner of the city.

In those irritating moments of our jam packed travel routines what we enjoy the most is the giggles and laughs we sisters share. I am road phobic since my childhood and I've iterated this several times before. That being the case, you can imagine the amount of chaos I am capable of creating. Surprisingly I've been okay except a few occasions. Instead of accepting the fault being mine I've tried to push it onto the fellow riders and the poor pedestrians.

Radio stations are another mode of entertainment unless they play the same crappy songs over and over again. There are a few jockeys we like to hear for their simple and smart presentation on air. If this also gets to the state of boredom we have to find other targets to comment about - maybe a cycle wala who is pedaling giving all his strength of life, or a hub of autos making it impossible for any other vehicle to pass through - Chakravyuha, or remembering the days spent with our Hayabusa on confronting a lady driving her scooty with full power.

Once on the backward journey late in the evening we were caught up in a packed road and the signals did not show signs of turning green. Sis on the wheels and greeting her was a musical mosquito singing a song getting her chafed to the extent which got her reflexes so right that it was the last sec the mosquito ever opened its stinging mouth. The lad lied smashed against the front glass shield of the xing and the thought of trapping it in my cellphone memory card with a quick snap was performed religiously. To get a cleaner shot Sis grabbed my phone and set the zoom out feature to enable the capture to be the perfect one.

Meanwhile there were on lookers of what was going on inside the car but were not able to understand what we've been trying to capture They all carried a puzzled look and their heads moved constantly from the camera position to the sky, a couple of times.This got Sis and me into more giggles and laughter.

That’s the story of our juggling between home and work now-a-days.

ಪಲ್ಲವಿಯ ಜೋಡಣೆ...

ಪಲ್ಲವಿಗೆ ಪಲ್ಲವಿಯ ಜೋಡಣೆ
ಎನಿದೋ ಈ ಕವಿಯ ಪರಿಕಲ್ಪನೆ
ಅನುರಾಗದ ಅನುಪಲ್ಲವಿ
ಮಿಶ್ರಿತ ಜೀವನದ ಸಿಹಿಕಹಿ

ಒಲವ ಒನಪು ಕರಾಳ ನೆನಪು
ಮರಳಿ ಮರಳಿ ತಾಕಿದೆ ಈ ಮನಸು
ಒಂದು ಕ್ಷಣ ಕಳೆದು ಹೊಯಿತು ಮೈಮನ
ಝಲ್ ಎಂದಿದೆ ಕಾಣದ ಎದೆಯ ಕಂಪನ

ಏತಕೆ ಹೊಸ ಬಗೆಯ ಮಂಥನ
ನಡೆ ಸಾಗಿಸು ಹೊಸ ಪಥದಿ ಸಂಚಲನ
ನಗೆ ಬೀರಿ ಚೆಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊಮ್ಮನಸ ಹೊಂಗಿರಣ

!!Change for Good!!

New Place , New Environment and to spice it up People say "Change is inevitable and growth is Intentional". Here I am in the phase of life where there is some change to note it down. Yes! Its the job or I could put it better this way - The time I spend during the day, to earn a living, is now being spent in a completeltly different place. Its been a while since I wanted this change but was waiting for the right move and the right time. When the tasks you perform gets into a monotonous routine, it rather does no good, but indeed help the dislike percentage to raise in every aspect. Same was my state couple of months ago and thats when I decided to sign up in the famous Job hunt sites.


Peter Drucker - a management guy has said " Company cultures are like country cultures. never try to change one.Try, instead, to work with what you've got". To this I add another clause " If it doesn't work with you , its time to move on."


As I believe in my own preachings , I follow them faithfully. Thats the reason today , I am standing where I am.


Many people view the job change as a way of promoting themselves to a better position. And in most cases, I would agree. However, you should always be sure your new job offers you the means to satisfy your values. While there is no denying the strategic virtues of selective job changing for the purpose of career leverage, you want to make sure the path you take will lead you where you really want to go.


The motive behind this article is purely to let you all know that I have accepted the change in a positive way and everything is settled quite well in the new work environment. Its been a week and slowly things have fallen into the right places. I am liking the feeling of being the part of this organization and hoping the liking lasts long. Having said that its time I get back to some piece of work on my plate.


You'll see me back when I have something to rant about.
