1/2 the decade, +1


As this is my first JOBπŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό, small gistπŸ–ŠοΈ

I was greeted and welcomed by Neelima after my written test, I was waiting for my interview to be taken.

I thought I will loose this one.Β But, somehow finally I entered, thanks to Sunil for the opportunity.

Before this I Β attempted many written testsπŸ“‹ and cleared almost all, in same time I lost all my interviews – ‘reason was, communication’ skills.Β My previous interviews were, you are not good in communication so, replay was either β€œyou can leave off for the day” or β€œwe will get back to you”.

I couldn’t understandπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ how come if a guy doesn’t know proper English, how do they judge weak in communicationπŸ€”, “as I know, communication doesn’t mean knowing english, Β it’s how, what, and the way we speak”, Of course, to communicate with another part of the world we need English.

First few weeks:

On my first day along with me there were 9 more guys, 2-πŸ’ƒπŸ» , 8-πŸ•ΊπŸ», they are ………

Sravaniβ˜•: she is always calm and down to earth.

Pavaniβ˜•: she is also calm too but, very good in idioms.

PhaniπŸ₯”πŸ±: very enthusiastic guy, he involves more into, of whatever he does.

RameshπŸŸπŸ“: I like slang & food of Bhimavaram, I never forget the fish and prawns of bhimavaram.

VenkatπŸ₯: Of course slang of Kakinada too.

Saiβš–οΈ: Stylish well maintained physic, Guntur and Vjayawada guys were very very smart.

BharatπŸ₯”πŸ±:Β Friendly nature, doesn’t bother of rumors.

Chandramouli🌢️: Ragi sangati and natu kodi pulusu. For almost two and half  years we had lunch together every afternoon. I had a nice companion, thanks Chandra.

SivaKiranπŸ§€πŸ₯—: no words to say, used to gather information from all, what you do, what are you going to do…

Even though we all were joined at same time, we were scattered☒️ in different projects.

I never take neither tea 🍡nor coffee🍜, one day I felt headacheπŸ€• and went to the cafeteria, I was not aware of how to operate the coffee machine, keenly observed how the other guysπŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦ were taking, waited for my turn – “at last our mam (srividya) took coffee and a small straw.”

My turn🀡🏻 comes, I repeated same as them, and took that straw too, I thought it for stirring and to suck tea. After stirring I sucked tea through that straw Oh God! my tongueπŸ‘… and throat got burnedπŸ”₯. I threw that coffee in the bin, came quietly😐 and sat on my desk with tears in my eyesπŸ˜ͺ.

PhaniπŸ₯”πŸ±: what happened mama, tearsπŸ˜ͺ in your eyes.

me 🀡🏻: I thought If I say the actual reason he will laugh at me, So,  I said some dust particle in the eye.

PhaniπŸ₯”πŸ±: what! Dust particle here, it is closed environment and that too in AC room, how come.

me 🀡🏻: still my throat was burning “mini-me said arey bhai please leave me for sometime”, as I said previously he(phani) involves into more of whatever he does, now he involved on my eyes.

PhaniπŸ₯”πŸ±: tell mama any problem

me 🀡🏻: yes, stomach ache.

Phani🍱: Oho! ….. it’s ok mama may be due to outside food.

me 🀡🏻: yes, yes. β€œThank god”

As days past, I got my first salaryπŸ’°,Β as like everyone I was happy too. “of course everyone is happy on their first income”, thought to share this.

After a few months, my birthdayπŸŽ‚ has come, on this day our new lab has inaugurated.

After few months:

After my trainingπŸ”–βœοΈ, I was conjoined with the teamπŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§:

SubbuπŸ‘¨β€βš–οΈ:Β Friendly nature and easy going.

venkatπŸƒπŸ»:Β Very intelligent and smart guy, cool and calm going.

saiβ›³:Β  so much of patience.

Sravaniβ˜•:Β She is always calm and down to earth.

Divya⚽: Hurry-Burry but, BP is normal.

AvinashπŸ“:Β Very much dedicated.

SandeepπŸ“±: Always on mobile. If someone is dying or if some work is delaying or something deadline has occurred …… Β he simply says β€œit’s ok we will do it later”.

Sudha🎾: Very dense, but active at work, thanks for helping me out at the last days on work.

Siddhardth🎣: He is like ascetic.

First1️⃣, Second2️⃣, Third3️⃣, Fourth4️⃣


Without knowing Days, weeks, months passed just like that. Work …work…work.

Hurry in completing the work, our outing, team lunch, late nights work, year-end parties, trips, weekend movies, yummy Biryani, late night ice-creams, roaming in Madhapur …… etc. Had a nice time, of course few ups and downs.

By the end of the fourth year, I myself became a lot of changes – β€œit’s physically”, overweight, got bulged. Nothing to worry, in IT industry it happens to everyone, because of the type of work and to show the assets gained πŸ˜€πŸ˜€.



This year is more of uncertainty🀒, dilemmaπŸ˜‡.

Change in teams, reorganizing, shuffling, movement from one building to another,Β (all because of one foolish act Avago Technologies acquiring our Broadcom Corporation and naming to Broadcom limited… Β just kidding 😊).



This time I was coupled with other guysπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦.

GandiπŸˆ―πŸ’»: Hey! He is not our father of the nation but born on Oct 2nd. Very much workaholic guy.

DadaπŸ‘·πŸ‘·: well organized, planned and scheduled way of life (he must be in Japan🎌 not in India).

Neither it’s time⏲️ nor not, Hmm, situations made me to move.

Oho! Missed the closing cap, Here it is.

Either hopefully or hope not, we will meet sometime in future and may work together.

Life Β is like riding a 🏍 to keep balance βš– you need to moveπŸšΆπŸ»β€on, So do I.
