Starting over

I'm trying to find something to base my life upon,
Something in this strange world that goes on and on.
As the years go by and time fades away,
What used to be "good days" are now filled with dismay.
Tomorrow comes, and then again, it goes,
And my ambition to become something more, grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
The life I want now, gets closer each day.
All I've ever wanted was something to live for,
I don't want to be this little person anymore.
I've been basing my life upon what others think,
I wish I could go back and redo everything, every time an eye would blink.
I've fought to become who I am and what I want to be,
I have to remind myself that one day, I will be free.
Free from the rules I followed as a child,
When everything was a game and life was so mild.
Now times have changed and I realize nothing is fair,
And sometimes it seems like nobody even cares.
It's like no one pays attention to what I feel is best for me,
And what I think about the way some things should be.
I understand now, that I'm pretty much on my own,
And I know a lot of what I can do will never be known.
All the time, I think about everything I can't say, what I have to keep in,
And by doing this, my thoughts only get more complicated and deepen.
Soon I hope to find out who I am, and what I am meant to become,
I want to know where I'm going, I don't need to be reminded of where I came from.

Mind your own business..I don't care a damn about you!!!

In life when people are disappointed and depressed, some people just want to make things worse. I have my life to live and I have lot of people to care and walk with me. I just want the others who think I'm nothing... Thank you people... You make me want to live more and laugh more... Your criticism make me want to prove to you that I'm happy and always will be.. I don't give a damn about money. Here I would like to quote a famous saying by Mr. Vadivelu. "Hey money come today and go tomorrow ya" LOL.. Jokes apart, if you have money, have it. I don't think money can buy you everthing in life except monetary benefit and physical things. It can never buy you love, care and happiness.. I' m happy with what I have and what I am.. I live my life the way I want to live... So Mind your own business and get the hell of out of my life and dont ruin my life with what I'm left with....

Vote for Sarath Babu

My friend Ram asked me, " Y are you wasting your time writing about politics and stuffs about the Srilanka? You shouldn't write about such things." Then I said, " This is my world and in my world, all these are happening and I have my right to talk about it."

This post is dedicated to Sarath Babu, one of my favourite entrepreneur. One thing, I found very inspirational about him was that he never forgot where he was from and wants to do something good for his people as well as for his country. When I look at him, I think that my problems are nothing compared to what he has gone through and when he can overcome it, why can't I?? He does so many things to motivate me to work more and life more. So I support SARATH BABU for this elections as well as planning to vote for him. Please lets have some change to this country... You can also visit Sarath's website and his symbol is SLATE..

I'm Not What You See

People look at me and see a perfect little girl
But what they don't know is deep down inside
I'm troubled in this world
From my fears I hide
And I try to act strong
Like nothing bothers me
I act like nothing's wrong
So you can't see
That I'm not perfect
I struggle all the time
But I have come to the point
I'm tired of acting like I'm fine
I'm tired of acting fake
And I need to be more aware that this is not a dream
That I am awake
So to anyone I ever hurt for not being me
I'm sorry you finally know this
And I'm sorry I'm not everything you want me to be
But that is something I wish to be

I need it all !!

This silence is eating me
I need what i lost all back
Back to my old self 
Back to my innocence
Back to my childhood
back to my unknown
But they say what lost 
Is lost for ever and ever

Anna Dhaanam

Annam means food... Dhaanam means giving... Together meaning- Giving food as charity. At home, We believe that giving food is the best charity. Today, being Akshaya Tritiya, we always give food to people who are needy.

Akshaya Tritiya is a festival which is celebrated to bring good health and prosperity for everyone. But for the past decade, it has become a money making festival for all the corporate gold houses.. I don't remember that when my grandmother was alive, it was celebrated this way. My grandmother like my mom now, used to give food to the beggars and needy.... She made sure that it was given to lots of people.. but at this time, Akshaya Tritiya was not celebrated by buying gold and staking it in your bank locker. Somewhere some astrologer must have said its good to get gold and every marketer must have caught up with this idea to attract the customer. Now you can see celebrities, commoners, fashion designer and most of all the gold merchants talking about buying gold, platinum, diamond, etc. This day has become a gold gamble day for everybody. I don't live up to such kind of marketing. I, as a rule, make sure that we follow what my grandmother did when she was still there with us and so does everybody at home.... 

Anna dhaanam are given in all the temple all over India. Its not that only people who are needy should have it. Its given to all the people who are willing to eat at that place. My mom once took me to this temple in Kumbakonam and I did have anna dhaanam there and another temple in chennai. My sister was too embrassed to eat there with all the beggars beside us but I dint care after all they are humans too..  Just one single difference. It doesn't matter.

My cousin brother has started this NGO about two years ago. They take up a village and help them educate and provide food almost daily. You can visit their website @ Good Hearts. They also have a yearly blood donation camp and other stuffs to help small scale enterprenuers to bring up their talents. These are just a gang of friends who started this organisation on behalf of their late friend Praveen whom I also happen to know because he was my school senoir.

Poem from an old valentine..

I was going through all my old stuffs today like my slam books, greeting cards, etc.. I found this card. Now this card brings back a lot of memories and also thinking about it, makes me laugh -out-loud now. This card made my dad realize, I wasn't his little girl anymore and gave my mom a little heart attack and quite a lot of excitement in me... This guy, Balaji, my senior in school was a very good friend of mine and I knew he was quite fond of me as a friend(that's what I thought). He lived nearby and a sweet guy. We had 3 years difference between us. Once my friend, Arun told me that this guy, Balaji was telling his friends that he likes me and fell in love.. I thought he was playing the prank on me and got angry on Arun for playing with me... This was when I was in the 8th std. February 14th was always exam time for us. The management of the school always made sure we had some exams during this time. I was totally late for school as always and attended prayers at the last minute. Since Balaji was the vice-caption of the school and he had duty for late entry, he let me.. Cool huh?? Not always I can do that. But before, I can get into the class he called me aside and said that he wanted to talk to me after school. I, usually get to talk to him after school because we live very close by each others house. I said okay and ran for my exams. 3 hours. Did as much as I can in exams. I wasn't very bright those days.

After exams, he called me aside when I was chitchatting with my friends and handed over the card he had. You wouldn't believe how much that guy had done for a card. He had written a poem and which he had given it to printing press to print it on the card and then he had hand picked the background and all the other decorations. I know its not so great now but at that time, when I was just 14 years old and my friends around me were the same too, It definitely was a big thing. Even now, some of my old schoolmates talk about it when we have a get together.Talk of the school. I was dumbstruck. I didn't know how to react. Not like, I'm the cutest girl in class or he was the handsome guy. Everybody around us knew we were close friends and neighbors. I just said thank and left. Then I showed the card to my parents and it became big issue after that. Then Balaji apologized to me and all those thing happened, but I never threw the card away.

Hello, this is my first Valentine card and how can I get rid of it.. I still have and I never take it out. Okay, Balaji still lives near my place but now with his wife...He got married about 6 months ago and of course, I was invited.

So, Here I want to share my first secret, my first valentine's day poem..

Sweet Raji,

Quietly you came into my life,
Openly you shared yourself with me.
Gently you drew me closer
Tenderly touched my heart
Gratefully I celebrate each moment shared with you

Thank you for the miracle of you..
You are , and always will be the love of my life.

This was on the 1st page and in the second page

The miracle of you
My dearest Valentine

Yours loving

Wasn't that cute?? I really appreciate the way it was written for me and me only. After that Balaji and me, we had always kept the distance and never talked much( Actually never talked). Then I wanted to share it with you because I thought this is always important to me.
He was also one of the inspirations for my poem writing skills. This poem motivated me a lot and I started writing my own. Thanks to BALAJI

A Powerful Dreamer!!!

RAJI, my blogger friend calls herself a dreamer.. I'm no dreamer because I hate it when I dream something and it never happens... it pisses me off.. So like my Title "Take life as it comes" I take life as it comes... but last night, my wildest dream occurred..

An unknown figure was chasing me in a very lonely road.. God knows how I got there but this was definitely a man..He was chasing me for a long time but couldn't catch me because I was too fast(in my dreams)... So here I was with no one around except for this unknown man who also made some sort of noise while calling me as something which I could not recognize. After sometime, I nearly forgot that I had a cell phone with me. I,then searched for it and found out that it was missing. I was anxious to call up my dad as ask him to come a rescue me but I couldn't... After a while, this unknown man came almost near to me and tried to get hold of me.. I tried to fasten my speed but something was slowing down because you know I am a natural runner(like I said in my dreams). After sometime, this man got hold of me and said, "Madam, you forgot your parcel and cellphone back at the hotel." Then when I turned back to see, I was on the Mount road, Chennai near Spencer plaza ... The Thing which was slowing me down was myself caught on my bike wheel...For god's sake, where did this lonely road go and where was I running all this time. I just couldn't realise what was happening and then this awful truth stuck me....
It was my imagination... No No crying people... LoL!!!!

PS: Now thats why, I don't dream....

Nightmare in srilanka!!!

Today's bandh in Tamil Nadu regarding the srilankan Tamils was such a bogus decision to woo the upcoming elections. Politics people.... What do you expect?? Even though there was a bandh for the all the employees as well as everyone... The TASMAC shops(Wine Shops ) in place were still operating with full zeal. What kinda government would do such thing?? Welcome to Tamil Nadu were everything happens. I was fed up with this kind of actions. When people are suffering here, a good government would do something to prevent or atleast help the people who are left out. Its totally unethical. People dont mix politics with this because it is the face of humanity which is going on Srilanka. Its also the kids and women who are suffering this kind of chaos...

 My mom always say that in the Story, Ramayana, when Hanuman goes to lanka to see Seetha, he was the one who set it on fire and till this day the country has not been living in peace. Whether we believe it or not? It is happening.... Srilanka is becoming a graveyard and lots of beautiful places in it have already been destroyed. 

When we come back to politics, Tamil nadu prevented students from going to college because they thought we would make a scene out of this situation. Nothing happened after that.. Why doesn't the central government take any action regarding this issue... Eventhough we have all the powers we cannot do anything about these things.. The upcoming election has to put the apt government and India also needs youngsters like Maran, Rahul Gandhi... Atleast then we could see little changes in these type of politics.. I've just put one picture... there are so many others which will make you cry just by looking at it... Is this what we are doing by building a better world???

My feelings make me alone
Alone forever

My friends dont know my feelings
My family dont know my feelings
I'm alone
I can be in a crowd yet alone
I walk alone
I talk alone
I live alone

My feelings are what separate me
My feelings make me alone

I wish to be whole
I try to bring myself together
I become strong in the process but I'll still be
alone forever.

My 101th blog post!!!

My blog has come a far way... Everybody wants to talk about their 100th post but I wanted to talk about what is going to happen in the future. My blog is just 5 months old and i already reached 101 posts... Its great or what???

It was my Marketing sir, Satheesh Krishnamurthy, was one of the first blogs I read in my life... I can also say he was my influence to the world of blogging. My friend and classmate Ram is a blogger himself. He helped me out in every aspect of blogging. Till date, if I have any doubt, I call up Ram. Sweet chap.. Then came Raji who is a motivator for me and I really love her blog and the things she write about. She is now a good friend too.. Then came a lot of other people like Muthu, Anand and then Nikhil who have added me recently to their life.... I thank all these people for being so wonderful. I love it here and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I never go back to sleep without reading the updates on my blog roll. So keep writing and I love reading as I gain a lot of knowledge thru you guys too... Lovely being with you people.. Most of all thanks you guys!!! :) :)

Cute Vodafone Ads

These are the on-going campaign for VODAFONE ADS... They are sooooooo cute... The best of all is the first one..Hats off to the guys who came up with this idea...

Who Doesn't love shopping???

I wanted to know who loves to shop indoor as well as outdoor.. I mean on the Internet and as well as going shopping to T.nagar or Parrys or Anna nagar(in case of Chennai). Well I've done both, but the best part of shopping is I always have someone to accompany me. As you know, I hate to be alone most of the times and a chit chatter, I need company. Be it my mom or my friends or my sisters or my dad(he doesn't talk much though), I totally depend on somebody to go shopping. Not making my decision on what to buy or what not to...but may be influencing The thing is want to know if you guys like to shop online too... because I know its kinda boring but I did it sometime but mostly for my dad and buy electronics through e-bay. Come on, please give me your comments on this one because I need to know how many like it with internet.. Go on... Open up your comments for me and thank you!!!!

Missing Feeling!!!

I hope all the girls remember going on the bike behind your dad who was then very much younger. I used to hug my dad so tight because I was too scared whether I would fall off. Years before that, you would remember sitting front on the petrol tank.. I was so proud of my dad. He was my Hero. Still is. He used to ride this Royal Enfield Bullet which is very huge and is very difficult to ride. Once I remember a friend of mine who was very scared of my dad because of the way he looks at him and also by the way he rides the bike. Its just amazing how much I miss hugging my dad from behind. But now that I have grown up and my dad has had severe pain on the backbone due to riding that sort of heavy vehicle, he now rides my scooty pep. Still doesn't allow me to go on the main roads, though.

Coming back to the subject. I seriously miss those innocent days when I used to ask endless number of questions to him not allowing him to concentrate on the ride, but even with all those disturbances my dad was always cautious about his bike and with me on it. Today, I am very carefree and love those long rides with friends with the highest speed possible on that bike, I still dont get that feeling which I had experienced with my dad. He is the best and my hero. I wish I could go back to those glorious days of innocence because I never had to bother about anything when I had my dad to take care of me at all time.

Thought for the day!!! :)

Cute Email from a friend(Ravi) this morning which was wonderful... sharing my email with you!

"The Road Not Taken"

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto way
I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

Robert Frost

Now, you might ask?? Why have you written this poetry?
This poem is dedicated to my fellow classmates in MBA. I want to tell them that this poem was related to me when I was in the dilemma to choose my specialization. I asked my dad for a suggestion and guess what he told me? This poem... Road Less Traveled by Robert frost..
I have read this poem during my school times. I was made to memorize it by heart. I used to crib about it, but it was time for me to realize that it works.... Everything which was learnt before does have some use at some point of time. Doesn't it???

Happy birthday Chottu!!!!

Today, its my chottu's birthday!!! He is a real cutie pie and also accepted me as one of his girlfriends. My boyfriend is just 3 years old and I love him very much. This post is dedicated to my darling neighbour chottu who is crazy about me... Love you chottu. Eventhough he cannot read, he knows that I do. Tomorrow morning,he'l be the first one to wake me up and say, " hey raji, today is my happy birthday. Where is my chocolate and gift??? Raji I want Dora and bujji." LOL I Love him...He is afterall my boyfriend...

Memories are left

I want to be with you,
But you’re millions of miles away.
I wish you would call just to ask about my day.
It would make things so much better if I could hear your voice,
I guess I can’t complain too much, it just wasn’t your choice.
You were always there for me through both the good times and the bad.
You were always there to laugh with me, or to help me when I’m sad.
It’s not that I pity you,
But I’ll admit your life’s been tough,
I just wish that physically,
I could be there when things get rough.
Down at the mall even though we had no money,
Laughing at anything and everything, yet none of it was funny.
Driving around the block, or baking things all day,
We never really ran out of things to say.
You’re locked up only a few hours away now, but it seems so far.
I wish I could be down there, where you are.
Why do two best friends you’ll ever know,
Have to be split up, because one is forced to go?
Now that we’re so far apart,
I love you even more.
Maybe we both love too much,
But, hey, that’s what friends are for.
Each time they say your name,
A tear forms in my eye,
How can I be happy,
If all I seem to do is cry?
You weren’t supposed to leave me,
This has to be a dream.
I cant accept your absence,
And take goodbye for what it means.
You left me lost and broken,
I still can’t find my way.
Months have passed real slowly,
But it’s harder every day.
I will never forget you,
Though we are far apart,
I miss you so much baby,
And love you with all my heart.

A poem by Suzanne(my friend).

Uyiril Edho -

This song, currently shows my emotions towards this period of my life because I miss HIM now. This month April was a very special month for both of us because we understood each other after a long drag of fights which lasted for the last twenty days in 2006. I still remember the way we got back together and how understood the other's feelings. I miss him and he knows it but still it can never happen again.

Vanilla Milkshake..

Okay, I read how Nikhil had written about Strawberry milkshake and my favourite is Vanilla milkshake. It doesn't matter how much calories it has but it just gives us all happiness with friends or family. I always cherish my hotels and Cafe coffee days memories with a Vanilla milkshake( maybe even two,LOL). This is how you make it.


1 cup milk,chilled
2 cups vanilla ice cream

1tsp. vanilla essence

How to Prepare:
Place the vanilla ice cream and vanilla essence into a blender.With it running add the milk, until it is thoroughly mixed.Garnish with a cherry on the top.Prepare right at the time of serving.

Even Though You Hurt Me....

Even though you hurt me..
I still love you.
And now that you've hurt me.
I know i cant make it through.
You left me for dead.
And now i sit alone
Thinking of how you told me you loved me
and how it was all in my head
Even though you hurt me....
I still long for your touch.
My body aches for your presence.
And in the end, its all just too much.
You're everything to me
My heart and my soul.
And even though you hurt me...
And my heart is what you stole.
I still love you.
I hope that you can see.
That you totally and completely mean everything to me.

Ini Oru Vidhi Seivom

Vijay Tv is hosting this new show called " Ini Oru Vidhi Seivom". This show talks about Women rights and what are all the things which are faced by women today(Both good as well as bad).

Today's topic was about you can prevent Divorce rates or something of that sort( I started watching it from the middle...Sorry).
This started off by saying how the women are trying to put up a lot of ego problems and don't have any sagipu thanmai. and one annoying lady also said that we, girls, these days are not brought up to share and adjust to things. We put our egos in front of us before we think about the marriage.
Another lady who was offended by this statement quoted that she personally knew a girl who was married to this guy who was impotent( meaning not being able to reproduce) knew that he was before he got married. When she lived with for almost 2 years and then told her parents about him who was also sexually abusive. She tolerated all this just for the sake of not getting a divorce and trying to live along with him, but there was a limit to everything because he had become more aggressive one day. So she left him even though the parents were reluctant. But now she got the divorce and became a doctor who is quite successful in her career, but doesn't want to marry again.

I was so touched by this story. Do you know there are 1000 of women who have such kind of husbands who are impotent and another set of women who are sexually harassed or abused by their husbands. If they try to get out of this situation and get divorced, the society says that she has got ego and doesn't want to tolerate and live. How can any women live like that? Even though, we are being so successful in fulfilling the dreams of the nation and building the economy and developing, still women are not given the rights that they deserve. I personally know a friend, who had similar kind of situation which she also came out of it, but she also tried to make the marriage work because he always was loving to her except for the fact he was being aggressive and abusive as time went by. The family did not accept her back. She still lives and proves that she is worthy of living and she has overcome the depression and on her feet to live her life the way she wants it to be. I salute to these kind of women. This is not called as ego or self esteem or selfishness. This is called as protecting ourselves and living our life. These women do not want to get married again for the mere fact that they do not want to get hurt again because the pain and agony was too much to tolerate

PATTALAM- Replica of Kana kannum kalangal(KKK)

Review of the Movie: Pattalam

A different tale, the story is set on the backdrop of the Holy Bells school and this has two groups of four adolescent teenagers each. As usual, both groups have rivalries and in this process they tend to get indiscipline and even violent at times. At this point comes Daisy (Nadiya) who is the correspondent of the school, she is also the in charge of a mental asylum and having noticed the group clashes, she realizes that the solution for this is through affection and not punishment. Soon, she begins to counsel the groups and introduces few innovative ways due to which the groups come together and becomes one. They also go on to win an athletic championship but then one incident happens that leaves a lasting impact on them. What is that incident and what happens after that forms the rest of the story.

Okay now for the critics from me:
1. The story is good but could have done better in the screenplay.
2. The music is okay could have been better.
3. When they knew these teenagers have been rival since god knows when, should she have tried to unify them before itself.
4. I find it not so different from KKK because as we can see they have almost the same guys in both the groups and also they have the same old fights which happen in KKK.
5. It doesn't have an Tamil background to it. Its more like a Malayalam film. No Offense guys but it is not just the same.
6. The girl in the movie acts as if she is a child not a 12th std girl.
7.The film could have been a lot better if the script was crisper and focused on some entertaining elements.
8. The best part of the movie is NADIYA. She was just awesome and I except more movies from her.

7 things to make sure you are truly happy.

Are we happy with what we are today? Are you happy with everyone around you? Are you having fun? Are you giving your best at any work you do with happiness? If your answer is no, then I ask " why not?'

So then where did happiness go? It hasn't gone anywhere just inside you. Its an internal feeling which can be felt only internally and impossible to obtain from outside things. Sure, they may make you happy initially, but the emptiness will not go away.

Then you ask," so, how can I be happy then?"

Follow these rules:

Accept That You Deserve To Be Happy.
If you cannot accept the fact that you are meant to be happy, then you can never be happy. So tell yourself that you are deserve to be happy all the time and you are definitely worthy of it every bit.

2.Accept Who You Are.

Being happy means is accepting who you are: Good, bad, ugly or whatever. Its knowing that you are doing the best you can do, and being content about it. I'm not saying that you would have to ignore what you'd like to improve in you life but if you only see what's missing, you lose out loving what's great about you.

3.Be Comfortable Wherever You are.

Being happy today means being comfortable where you are in the present. Live this moment. You would never know what you would be the next moment. Try to live every bit of the day.

4. Appreciate Your Life.
Be grateful for your life. Whether its your health, job,place, love, food, family or everything around. Wouldn't you live your life differently, if you had known that you were going to live only for 3 months from now? Guess What? You are going to die one day, and what does it matter whether its 3 months or tomorrow.

5. Ask For Help.
Being happy doesn't mean you should keep your problems to your self. It also means that you ask for support, love, guidance you get through with everything with ease.Most of us don't ask for help because we don't want to burden the people around us. But, if someone asked you for assistance, wouldn't you lend a helping hand? Then why wouldn't you let others do the same for you?

6. Do Something Nice For Someone Else.

This could be as simple as holding the door for the person behind you, or as big as volunteering your time to your favorite charity. Your problems become smaller when you are not always thinking about them. When you take the focus off yourself, it is easier to see how great your life really is.

7. Do Something That Will Move You Forward.

Being happy is taking steps that will move you forward. Movement keeps you from feeling like a victim. When you're unhappy, formulating a plan puts you in a different place and helps change your perspective. It also put the power back in your hands!

So, what is it going to take to have you be happy today? How much more of your life do you want to live waiting for "someday" to bring you the happiness you crave? It's up to you to create your own happiness. It's up to you to create a life filled with joy rather than sorrow. Why not choose a life filled with happiness today?

Fun for a while

Have you ever felt that you have the same routine everyday and you get to see the same people everyday? Wish you could leave everything for sometime and get out and do something different??

Well, I'm in that mood today.. I am so damn bored with this routine life here. Just want to live life without any fear and stressed out. OMG!!! do I make sense?? Do you think I am stupid ? May be I am but at the moment I am so frustrated that I just want to get out of the house at the middle of the night and do something different. Like runaway and get married..LOL!!! Just joking. Its just that I am toooooooooooo bored at the moment and I also wish that a prince would come and rescue me on the horse back.. Me and My imagination.. LOL


I think every MBA student would go through this phase at some point or the other.

Now what would that be??? Choosing between HR or Finance. Well ,as far as for us, at this point of time when we have the recession and with a lot of people losing jobs it has been a very difficult decision. When I was in the first week of classes, I had about 50% of my class opting for HR. Now if you see, I can hardly find 10 people for HR. Why is this confusion? I mean some people would lose their interests just because there is no job out there. I mean come on. Don't you have faith in yourself? Do you think you cannot make it to the world ??

For a second, I had such thoughts too. After all, we have our moments. But I was stern in my decision. I took MBA because I am a people person and I came here to work with people for the people. Money is always a concern when taking the right decision because when we have our fathers sweat and work hard like dogs to pay for us. It is definitely not small amount of money. Paying 8+ lacs in not a small thing. I know but still is everything about money. If you still think, like me, that you could do anything only if you have both your heart and soul into it.

A lot of my friends are taking up Finance just because we have a lot of opportunities there. Don't you know that whatever goes up has to come down some day and vice versa, like the US economic crisis. All my friends persuade me to take up the same but my mind just dint give up on my favorite. Still every time, my friends call up, the first thing they ask me," HR or Finance" and I promptly say HR. This whole internship thing had given us a lot of time as well as frustation to think about our choices. Some people just went there because you get a lot of money when you start your career as a assistant finance manager. And believe me, they are soooo wrong. Nobody is going to give away money for nothing.
I believe, to know and work for a company you would have to start from scratch. I found this out when I was working before. Some guys joined Finance because they wouldn't be able to see this really cute girl in our class. Rouges!!! Some times, I wish I could use certain four letter words on these people.

So as far as I am concern, I am happy that I was stern in my decision and never changed my mind for what I was here for. And I am damn proud about myself. I also want to tell these people that I am definitely going to be more successfull than others who left for no reason at all. And I also wish them best of luck in their new born interests.

Last but not the least, Don't be the cat on the wall...
