hi vimal

mmm… where do i start? wut shall i tell? h shall i put it? i am currently gropping 4 words 2 do so…. well, it all start like this…….

a beautiful tuesday morning with a nice warm sun-rise warming my cheeks and making me blush. I got up 2 a perfect morning (so I thought boo! boo!) had a nice clean cool bath & had a clean neat shave…. put on the best of my clothes and decorated my clothes well enough to make heads turn more than once. In other words, wut happened was a perfect step by step procedure for preparation for a important day in my life. so did my day went till i entered into the i-Flex office for my aptitude test. Oops!!!

There were as many as 40 students (past & present) who were competing with me!!! All my own friends & acquaintance who suddenly (i.e., between the time the lift door opened & before it closed!!!) became arch-rivals… sworn-enemies… un-forgivable foes.

FRIENDS 2 FOES WITHIN FIVE SECONDs. (sounds like a nice movie title, rite?)

Waited for almost 30-45 minutes before the aptitude test could take place… Ding-dong! Ding-Dong! Ding-Dong! Bell marks the begining of a biggest testing time in my life… a occasion when I have to fight & compete against people with whom I learnt to compete… a occasion when I have to fight for my share of cake with whom I slways shared & cared…. a occasion when I had to race against time to win the competetion well ahead of others!!! This was indeed a momentous occasion! Though did not last long….

Phoosh!!! Phoosh!!! The sound of answer sheet being snacthed away from beneath our (holy) hands. The end of a great time… the end of the shortest 1 hours I ever spent in my life.

“Silence! No Talking!!” was wut we were all greeted with… to have completed our greatest contest. We will get back 2 the selected few(??) soon. In other words, get the F*** out of here and let that b fast.

I was over joyed… excited… jumping with joy… over the moon… in the 9th cloud & 7th heaven… b’coz i came to know that i did the best when compared 2 others…. wow! wut a joy beyond any imagination level…. u gotta feel that kind of feel when u know that u have bet all black & blue…. though result is awaited it mattered the least when upon verbal comparision with ur compatriots (or is it enemies???) that u have done better than their assessment of their performance…. atleast verbally yes… but in reality???

the results were out by the evening…. we all were thrown into the biggest whril-pool of chaos & confusion… none of the apparently top-notch performers got in!!! Can you believe it??? No!! well u dont have a choice… u gotta accept it even if u dont believe it…. None of the Techies got it…. Oops!!! all the dreams shattered…. the castles crumbled…. poof!!! the ‘Benz’ car vanished…. the dozen top IT-savvy & sexy babes disappeared… just imagine falling from great heights…. falling from ‘over the moon’…. falling from ” 7th heaven”….. falling from “9th cloud”…. This was it!!! this were it all ended…. this is where my confidence…. my dreams…. my joy…. my excitement…. my freaking future in i-Flex. well, all ended within a few hours of coming in2 my life, imagination….. So, tell my buddy, wut can i do…..

sniff! sniff! sniff! (crying)
boo! boo! boo! (weeping)
waah! waah! waah! (wailing)

This is my current state…. TEARS ROLLING DOWN MY CHEEKS TO DRENCH MY ALREADY WET T-SHIRT!!!
