Best of 2009

No prizes for guessing what this post will be saying about..yes..just trying to run through the flashback of this tough year. Coming straight to the point. I have always been a big fan of these top 5, top 10 kind of countdowns..thus I felt of doing the same for my sleepy blog as well.Ummm..let me check..to begin with

Top Bollywood movies of the year

Any normal Indian will surely get excited by even small mention of Bollywood, Was just pondering that what all can be my best movies of the year..

Here it goes..

3 Idiots :- Any one who must have seen this movie by now will support my selection, every time I watch an Aamir movie  I am left clueless that how this guy compromises so much with his character. Amazing movie. Superb story and what else can you demand to end your year on a happy note.

Rocket Singh: Sometimes simple stories can go straight through your heart. This movie is just like that. Every thing is so predictable about this movie, still you will love it.

Wanted : I know I know, this is something anti-best kind of entry, but then somehow I enjoyed this movie. Not a dull moment full on masala movie, I know that we tend to loathe such kind of cinema these days, but then after so much of complexities..it actually makes sense to watch such brainless stuff. Salman rocks.

Paa : hmm…this movie is all about Mr. Bachhan. I am simply amazed by his stamina and zeal to experiment. Although not a great story line but somehow top-notch performances by the actors in this movies makes it one of the must watch of 2009.

Dev D : Now this is what I can term as coming of ages. A small budget movie, with completely new take on all time classic Devdas, you can only feel that how the hell someone can think of making such different movies. Emotional atayachar has some how became one of them most popular word of 2009. Top notch.

Apart from these I have so many movies for 2009, but somehow I feel that these are the only ones which I would love to watch again movies like Kurban, Kaminey, New york, wake up sid are definitely nice ones but still my best ones are already decided.

Top moments of 2009

Now this is something personal.. I was just wondering if I can also pen down my best moments of the year. So read it at your own discretion ;).

First Job : Yes this was one of the high of 2009. This is the year when I started of with my first brush with corporate world. Things have moved on since, but still this moment will always be very special to me.

Yamaha Fazer: from second-hand bike to the ubiquitous Pulsar, I landed up with out of budget bike Fazer. I never thought of getting such an expensive bike for myself (yeah expensive at least to my standards) but then I would love to remember this year for Fazer, as it gave me confidence to pursue my dream, to go for what you like and to achieve what you feel is bit difficult.

MBA : This is one such achievement, which really makes me feel that Yes! I have done something significant in my life. The best part is that now I am relieved that there is no more formal education left for me (plz PhD is not my cup of tea). So no more tests, no more classes no more tension of getting flunked in exams…2009 marked an end to my student life..

Recession : Hmmm..what more to say..this is of course not the best thing to happen, but somehow I feel that this rough time has only made me stronger. It has inculcated me with a feeling that what worse can happen now, when so much of  mess has already happened. This phenomenon has only made me a tough person.

pheww..I believe these are the few best moments I tried to capture. But I am amazed by this feeling that how fast this year passed. 2009 will always be remembered for its tough situation. The kind of struggle it offered. Never mind, I have great hopes from 2010 which again will be a crucial year for me. Lets see what happens next…Wishing you all a great new year in offering…enjoy and may god bless us all with all the joy and happiness for coming year……HAPPY 2010

Recessionized…..

It seems like that recession has caught the attention across the globe..so how can our fellow Indians can remain unaware about it..anyways..point is..that 2009 will be the worst year to graduate as an MBA.
with December almost approaching towards mid, and we have only 2.5 months left as march end is always left for semester end examinations. with such scenario I just don’t know what will happen with my placement dreams. up till now I got two opportunities of facing the interviews and messed up both.
Situation right now is just like Uday Chopra dreaming in Dhoom movie..similarly when I started off with MBA..I had a dream..like..”yarr kum se kum 5.5 lacs to milega hi milega..uske neeche to lene ka hi nahi”..or ” Lets get placed by year end..and then we will go to Goa..” but it seems as if some body has punctured the tyre…bole to hawa nikal di hai..

and when we talk these days..the only word which hits the tounge is recession and then only some discussion starts off…height is..that even a Re 1 increase for a cup of tea is linked to recession…damm it yarr…kya socha tha aur kya ho gaya..

as if now out of batch strength of 192 almost 50 something are counting there chickens happily rest are just looking for that elusive oppertunity..on the top of this..companies come with a mind set to reject a candidate rather then selecting them..I have seen people being rejceted after seven rounds of interview..man..what is this..theek hai naukri nahi deni hai to pehle bata do na yarr..why to torture a candidate and then kick his a** and show him the door…
I don’t know what’s in store on this placement front..but certainly increase in revenues of booz companies is something to cheer about..atleast some one is getting advantage of this recession…

Every day starts with thinking about placement, every other conversation  starts with the word placement and probably ends with it as well.Earlier when we use to see our friends the first reaction was waving your hand or just saying a simple “hi”…but now you see a friend and the first sentence which comes out of mouth is..”Yaar koi company aa rahi hai kya”..or ” kya bhai kya scene chal raha hai..any news..”. God know what will happen..time will tell..but seriously..at mid of the night if some thing has promopetd me to stir my upper compartment then it should be something serious…

GOD BLESS US..is what I can say..and hope for the best is what I can expect from the future..till then enjoy being recessionized..you never know Kal ho na hao
