A retrospection at the year gone by

Finally found some time to actually try and do some retrospect on the year gone by. So better late than never, here I go.

I could say 2005 was a very turbulent year for me. It had started really bad, with lots of work, had the best part of my life for the next 3 months, changed companies, made a lot of friends. Then had a really bad phase, with my personal life going awry, a friend of mine got really upset with me and didn’t even want to see my face. Had a slightly better end to the year with a promotion.

So 2006 started on a good note, what with getting a promotion at the end of the year. To add to the happiness, i had also cleared my B-School entrance exam and was called for an interview. It is a different fact that i couldn’t clear the interview, my nemesis from time immemorial. But the main item on the agenda for the year was to get my friend back. Although i can’t say that I succeeded in that effort, I can say that we got back on to talking terms at the least.

The month of May was a fun time for me. First of all, there was a marriage at home. No, it wasn’t mine. I still have some luck left, though am not sure when i will run out of it. The excitement and the anxiety (to some extent) of a new member coming to your house has to be experienced to understand it.

Then came my Birthday. I was amazed with the number of calls i received on that day. Never in my life (till then that is), had so many ppl wished me on my birthday and i know who should be thanked for that, Mr. Orkut.

But with my birthday came the signs that my luck might be running out. That was when my mom started giving me ultimatum, “either u get into a B-school or I will get u married next year”. I tried all tricks in book, including telling her that i will find my own bride. Her reply, “sure get her”. Now i dunno who leaked this secret that I will never get a GF in my life. The confidence with which she told that was amazing.

So, with these warning signs in the offing, I thought it is high time, i whip my lazy ass into action. Thats when i started preparing for my B-School exams. Yes, all over again and it can become boring too. But thank God, I found two more ppl sharing the same passion. So actually it was a gr8 fun preparing for it. I could say I have done sort of better than last time round. So have to see what is there in the offing for me. Not that one is better than the other anyway.

Also had a gr8 time of the year when my parents went on a trip, leaving me alone for 25 days. What a peace. No more boring serials for 25 days, can come back from work early, can watch tv late into the night ….. The cons : have to get up early, clean up the house and have to cook. Yes, I learnt cooking. Necessity is the mother of all inventions.

The fun part of 2006 was the marriages. Lemme count….yes, 6 of my friends got married. Now that is more from my standards. So i could say it was 6 times the fun. And looking into 2007, the number of marriages are not going to come down. No wonder, my mom is so adamant on me getting married. Oh Boy…the problem just keep getting more in number.

  1. Wow.

    I’d never be able to capture the whole year in a para!! You go, dude!!

    And, happy last independence day, republic day, valentines day, blah blah.. what say we give you till august to get married 🙂

    Yours forever sthupitly.

  2. No no, it is OK – you can live your life out as a married man – doesn’t mean your life ends on your wedding day! 😀

    Congrats on the promotion, and good luck for the B-schools! We tend to savour the things that take multiple attempts to get, more. 🙂 So, not clearing the interview isn’t such a bad thing 🙂

    Oh, and good luck with the friend as well. Hope she accepts your apology.

  3. hmm… i think i left out an important word out there.. what i meant was, i still need to live my “independent” life out :D. With due respect to the members of the female species, i think u can’t live the ‘independent’ life out after marriage.

    And regarding the promotion… just the time bound prootion which they give out there in the office.. u shud know abt it.. and that was given in 2005 nov only :D. No such luck now.
