Blogging after a long time. Its kinda funny trying to do it from office where even opening an NDTV site for checking news is supposed to be breach of intregity. Shouldn’t be doing it but since my log in id etc got configured today finally, fely like checking out the net. And all mail sites being blocked, this was the next resort.
Its been a week and a day at the Hyd office and two weeks and a day at the company. Gurgaon was more or less total timepass, and included a very comfortable stay at the guesthouse with 24 hours room service. Also it included a trip to Jaipur which was good fun. Staying at Park Plaza, was an experience in itself.
Cant really say the same about Hyderabad though. Firstly the guesthouse sucks, when compared to the one in Gurgaon. Second, timings at the office are highly erractic. Have stayed till 4 AM in the office at times:(!
Only saving grace has been the fact that I have atypical day shift as against all the others who seem to be reporting at weird timings ranging from 4PM to 12 AM. Me :), it is a 9 to 6 or 10 to 7 job, as per my comfort… cool huh?? But since work hasn’t started yet, and I need to meet different people in the office, I have to report according to them …
Another matter of frustration has been ACCOMODATION @ HYD, which I assumed to be ‘verrrrry simple’ for some unknown reason. Travelling across half the city the entire weekend proved things to be otherwise. Also, the situation not having changed from where I was 2 days ago, and not being to able to think how I can actually do it at all, is highly irritating.
Met a few friends from K this weekend, and that was kinda nice. Also it helped me know that looking for a ‘totally furnished’ house was kinda unreasonable, and that there were other options like getting the house furnished @ 3500 Rs per month (courtesy : Vohra). So since the scope has kinda broadened now, things might (I hope) actually get better. And they better get better, if I am expected to stay at Hyd for even one day after the next weekend!
Troubles wont end once I get an acco too, considering then I have to work upon how exactly I intend to procure food from everyday, since I quit the cooking sessions too soon to actually make something that would help me survive. But then atleast I would have some place to sit and mope about that next.
That should be another story, lemme get some shelter first:(…(what has the world come to, I am not even in a position to get my basic requirements for survival fulfilled! Sob! Sob!)
