I spoke with my offshore lead today and its final now, dates are fixed I will travelling back to India next month on 20th or 21st. 25 more days to go.
It will be 8 months and 10 days exactly since I left India.
One of the most satisfying trips of my career :-). I was supposed to be here for 5 months, but it got extended and extended and extended.
Ive spent the whole of winter and the whole of summer. I've missed fall though, but thats okay..
Here are a few of my achievements during my stay here:
Drove Mustang, Kia, Accent, Elantra, Corolla, Dodge all at 100 mph
7 months of hard work and 2 months of no-work. And a 'Star of the quarter award'.
Did a sky dive from 14k altitude and skied twice without breaking any parts of my body.
Had nice times playing TT, tennis, cricket (EMC and Desi cricket), swimming, bowling, Dumb Charades.
Started cooking for the first time and also started liking the Dunkins coffee
Visited NYC, Boston, Niagara and partied hard in Providence
Bought iPhones, HD Projector, HDDs and many more stuffs AND the best of all I managed to save some nice $s

What more can one ask for, thanks everyone for making this happen 🙂

Kannada Classic songs

Everytime I listen to this song from Vikram Hazra, I feel light hearted and become kind of devotional. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6JrW8e-FP0&feature=related
I have always been a firm believer in Hindutva. This just struck in my mind now, consider: Ram and Sita, Shiva and Parvathy or any other devotional couple. For a marriage to be successful, it has to be male dominant, it is very evident in Indian history too and I believe it would be good if it were to remain this way.

I have been in a trance listening to these songs the whole evening: Nadamaya, Devaru Hoseda, Hindustanavu endu mareyada, Shankar Nag (Interview), Maleya marutha songs, Vikram Hazra- Radhe Shyam, Achyutam Keshavam..
Awesome songs kudos…

Ride on #1 Roller Coaster in the world

I already had a Six flags seasonal pass, and I could take my friends along with me for 14$ each, maybe because of this only reason we decided to go to Six Flags today.
In fact till today morning, I never knew I will be going to Six Flags in the first place. 
At Six Flags, I rocked and rolled on a number of roller coaster rides, first it was the Pandemonium, and then Mind Eraser, and then Batman- The Dark Knight, and Minda Eraser again, and finally the number1 roller coaster ride in the whole world: Superman- ‘Bizarro’ Ride of Steel. And it was simply..wait for it.. ”Awesome”..
Weather was amazing too, and we spent a large amount of time at the Hurricane Harbor, the water park.
It was a very tiring day in the end and we have plans for tomorrow as well..
Tomorrow, the 4th of July, we will be hitting Cape Cod – Martha’s Vineyard.
