Ban, Bang, Bangalore!

Ban, Bang, Bangalore!

Sometime back, one aunty known to me asked me, “where do you work?”. I replied her that I work in a startup company in Bangalore. She again asked me, “Didn’t you get offers from good companies like TCS, Infosys or Wipro?”.I replied her, “No Aunty. I have to try”. Then she gave me some advice to prepare well for interviews. I listened to it carefully. I didn’t know who was dumb there.  :-/

Yes, Currently I am working in a startup company. It is like I just came into Bangalore. Oops, Bengaluru now. This city brought a lot to me. And the time is running, swimming and flying. It is more than a year now. The journey is still going on. More over, I enjoy a lot at work eventhough work is more than a typical development company. Because your responsibilities/stakes are more in a startup company.

From my child hood onwards I wanted to work on computers and to become an engineer. That is partially true by now 🙂 . I always wanted not to be stereotyped to a particular domain. In my current job, I write mobile apps and before that I was writing automation scripts, web apps in the previous company and even before that I was writing shell scripts and SQL stored procedures. At the time of writing this post, I just completed writing a scrapper to pull data from a website for my personal purpose. I can be flexible at times based on the need. I have the confidence of moving anything to DONE state.

I am from a family of people who is into retail/whole sale business. So doing business is part of my nerves all the time. Even if I don’t have a software company job, I still can run a retail business and I have the experience to do that. But I don’t want to go into that now. I want to do something with the knowledge I gained in this field. I am still waiting for the dooms day. When ever I learn something new, I wanted to try that out on my own. Currently I own more than 15 domain names and also more than 10 apps in store of my personal. But only a very few of them are active.

After coming to this city, I have attended a few conferences, hackathons and startup meetings. But I missed the time of roaming on all the week ends. But I still love this environment. Now I am feeling like, this is the field where I have to play.

Many things are changed now. I have started staying alone. I have started working more and also efficient than before. I can accomplish things by learning faster even if I have zero knowledge about something. I have started reading more books. I have started writing my book( but I don’t know when will it be over. It may even take years to complete). I have started working according to short term goals. I have started walking a lot. I have got new friends. I have started saving money.

When you want to win, nobody can stop you!

  1. or written about abortion or family planning. Aboriton has been around since the beginning of time. Making it illegal will not stop it from hanngpipe. Trying to help young people realize that there are better options than getting pregnant young and helping struggling families will help it from happening. Good role models for staying in school and waiting to have children until you are married will help. Role models like… Michelle Obama. You really discredit yourself with your obvious rancor against this person.

  2. I HAD to base it on travellogues. I was paid 10k per book for these books, and it was part of my living expenses. Going to Egypt was out of the question. NOT because I didn’t want to, but because I couldn’t. I’d have loved to travel. BUT as I pointed out in the original post, we don’t GET that kind of money. So I read several descriptions of people approaching and landing in Egypt. Of course, none of them were doing it by carpetship.

  3. That sounds like my idea of a picnic, but wow what a follow up! Quite the unintended adventure I expect. Your soup is just beautiful, I do adore bean soups on chilly days
