I Am One Year Old Today!

Hi, I am "When Da Sun Goes Down"!
Today is 17 January, 2012. First of all, thanks to Blogoversary for reminding me that today is my Birthday! And that I am One Year old! Yippee!

So I have decided to take a few moments for myself and reminisce.

The Politics of Languages!

Disclaimer: This post was written back in 2012 when the situation was not as bad as it is now in 2016. This is now part of a larger issue with the displeasure of the local population in the amount of people moving into Bengaluru from other parts of the country. And is now a very sensitive topic. Please consider the following rant as something that was written with the year 2012 in context. It is not meant to hurt anyone at all.

I don't know why I am probably the last person to get this information (probably cos' I haven't touched a Newspaper since long now). It seems some politician in Karnataka came up with this genius idea that everyone who is in Bangalore for a year has to pass the VII grade exams for Kannada language.

I say, this is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong. I have utmost respect for the language, the city, the state, and its people! And during my years here, I have managed to speak enough Kannada (out of my own interest) to bargain at shops, with autowallahs, and to ask for directions. But do you not feel that this is a little extreme?

Awesome Advertisements - 1

Oh! So you are a Shah Rukh Khan Fan?

Somehow, being a South Indian, my North Indian friends find it surprising that I even know a lot of old Hindi songs, maybe even more than they do. Thanks to my Dad who introduced me to the old melodies at a very young age. But that is probably the material for another post... Later...

So, the other day, while talking with a friend, I suddenly had a realization. The conversation was as follows:

"So, do you watch Hindi movies?" he asked

"Of course, I do!"

I Love My Job - Is That a Problem???

That's right!!! I love my Job! And I have no idea as to why that is a problem...

Oh yeah, it is a problem. For family, for friends, for everyone who knows me...

Not just my current job, I loved my previous job too. I only left it so that I can continue my education. For no other reason.

But from the very first day at my first job, I have had people tell me, "Don't spend too long at work. Then they will expect you to do the same always."
