Excitement

I have started getting really excited about going to IISc in 6 days.
About staying in a hostel for the first time in my life.
About finding new friends.
About doing new things - playing tennis, and dancing.
About not having my own comp with me.
About not having my bike with me.
And finally, about STUDYING :-)

Recovered (OK, Almost...)

Have recovered almost completely from my post-surgery and discomfort. Have started taking solid food since yesterday and stopped the pain killers. Still some nagging pain(killing me) in my jaws, which is not letting me sleep now. Hope it goes. And Hopefully, the last word about the problems with my teeth (on this blog).

Got 5 teeth removed

I have lost 5 of my teeth. How scary. How am I going to survive with fewer teeth? I hope it doesn't matter. I dont remember using them ever. I couldn't have used 3 'cos they were underneath. I told my grandpa that I got 5 teeth removed. And he responded that he got all his teeth removed and now has the teeth set.
3 days for my jaws to heal. Ll be having a liquid diet till then. Hope I get completely recovered within 10 days.:-)

Getting 5 teeth removed

I am at the Chennai Kaliappa hospital to get 5 of my impacted teeth removed (have 4 more which I will probably get removed after 2 or 3 years). The surgery is at 6 tomorrow morning. Will be under General Anesthesia when my dentist will pull out 2 normal teeth and dig out 3 under-gum teeth. Was scared till evening, but now I am fine. Hope everything works out fine. Paying 1900 for the single A/C room here. Costlier than a 5 star hotel room. All for comfort and luxury.:-)

Relieved from work - Part I

I was relieved from work at HCL Technologies on June 30, 2006. I had
had an amazing time there for almost 2 years. And all being in a
single project, a maintenance-cum-development project. The team grew
and shrunk all the time, but at any point of time there were 20
people. I have learnt from each person in the team. Different
characteristics - punctuality(Mano), sincerity(Vinu), process(Mohan),
fun(Sebin), and lots of other stuff. My cabin mates were Jossey, Maha,
and Mano. My leads-Mohan, Vijay, Vinu and Srinivasa Rao.
I didn't get too friendly with anyone. The closest I got were Jossey
and Sachin(Marathi).
I gained a lot of respect from the team members. People came for my violin concert, my brother's marriage.

I was also appreciated for my technical abilities. People clarified doubts in Java/Swing from me. My PM sent 2 people(my PL and me) out of a team of 30 for the Sun Tech Days 2006. Towards the end of my tenure, I started interviewing(tech) experienced people to work at HCL.
