Life Is Changing...

Lots of changes are happening in this week at personal as well as professional level. Some of them were unexpected.

There is one bad news, from now onwards I have to use Spects ( -1 Spherical ) . From last few months I was not comfortable while working as well as watching TV. I was avoiding the check-up from Eye specialist, thinking that it must be coz of stress and restlessness. But when the trouble got increased, finally I visited the Doc and he recommended spectacles for both eyes. Now I will use them regularly to get rid of them in long term. I am bit confuse, whether to opt for Spects or Contact Lenses. If u are wearing Spects then there comes selecting a good quality ( and good looking J ) frame and then Good glasses. Any suggestion on this…

At the work front, I will now become a part of bigger team and role will also get change to some extent. All this is new to most of us, but it will be a great learning experience. It’s really good to be a part of this transition. I am already working in a different setup of Organizational setup which very few IT companies follow. Now, as I have to work in a new Organizational Structure, and I know that I am in position to adopt this change, in long run it will definitely help. Within next few days will move to new Building, will start working from new Carrel. It will take some time to adjust there, but I hope it will not a big deal, coz what matters at the End Of Day is How I perform?, irrespective of where I am sitting.

Car Driving....

Finally I joined the Car Driving Class. Now don’t start imaging that “Manodeep is going to buy a car”, no its not listed in my 6 months planner. Its just one should know how to drive a Car and have license for the same. Me and Yogesh were planning for it from last 3 months, but when Yogi bought the Car last week ( actually his father bought it, but will that make any difference ;) ) then it became necessary for him to learn, and I too joined him. The progress is Ok, from very first day we started driving instead spending time in Classroom sessions, and we are doing well. Within next one month we both will be Masters.

I yet to get learning license, so driving safe and slow now :).

Last Party Of Cricket Season

Yesterday night we had a last Cricket Party of the season. It was fun having a get together at the end of season. Rajesh Das aka Harsh Bhogale of Ensim, was in full form. He came up with a sort of review of everybody’s performance in the last season, mostly stressing on Positive things and pin pointing where they lack. His wording was bit difficult for we to understand as it wasn’t meant for people like us who’s vocabulary is restricted to not more than 2000 words. But it was really nice to hear the Punch lines and comments. Watching RD performing on the field and listening him off-the-field is really a fun.

“By all standards this years Team Ensim is the best team in Ensim’s cricket history”, said the Founders of Ensim Cricket Team. At very first year there were only 7 players in the team and they were playing not with the stitched ball but with an ordinary Tennis ball. And this year, there were more than 15 regular players and we spent around 60,000. Though we haven’t won any tourney in this season, but we were in the Semifinals and overall it was a good performance.

Next season will be more planned, for which work will start from now only. The toughest thing is to remain fit for the entire season, for which most of the team members are planning to join Health –club, that way we will be in position to avoid the muscular strain, a common problem faced by most of us in this season. If one is physically fit, then his performance will definitely gets improve. Mental fitness is not a problem for we guys, otherwise how can people who are in there 30’s still coming regularly in nets, performing on the field and setting example for youngsters. Most of us have that passion for playing cricket and winning matches and that will not die with the growing age.

We have set some targets for next season. Some personal and some as a Team. You can expect at least one Century by an Ensimite and good bowling figures. Next year we will like to bring Trophy to our premises. There will be some new faces in team and a healthy competition for getting a berth in the squad.

Lets go on improving the standards!!!

Love ???

Two days back, one of my friends asked me whether I have a girlfriend??? This question has been asked many times. People who ask me this question always got surprised by the answer they get.

I have very simple funda in life, there is nothing called “Pahali Nazar Ka Pyaar”. Before you love some one in that sense, you must be aware of her likes/dislikes, hobbies, views on different things. Now one might say that, this is not the way to fall (? Why people use this word, If you love some one then, Instead of FALLING, one should RISE J ) in love, that you can’t planned things like this. Then my answer is this is not planning. I mean irrespective of the answers you get for these questions, what matter is whether the person is honest in answering this questions and in relationships.

Few days back two of my class mates got engaged. I was aware of the fact that they have a special bonding from very the first day I met them. They are made for each other. Now all of us are waiting for their marriage, where there will be lot more fun.

I will definitely like a friend turning into a life partner. Cause according to me, when you care for someone then and then only you can love her. Sometime back one told me that, If I propose someone who knows me, that lucky girl will definitely say “YES”. But then if I am that good, then let her come in search of her soul mate, I am waiting for her, and I will wait… J

A Year Of Success

A Year Of Success

Date : April 4, 2005
Venue : PVG’s COET Conference Hall
Event : VOTE-INDIA Press Conference
Inventors : Manodeep Sisodiya
Abhishek Bhalerao
Rajesh Baravkar

What a memorable day it was for me. Finally we were presenting the way to change Indian Election System in turn which will bring political change in country. That was the first press conference which I had attended, and we were addressing the people. Initially there were only few faces, but then as we started our presentation, suddenly within next 20 min.s Reporters, media persons started gathering some of them even not invited ( actually we hadn’t invited the, thinking why would they spend their valuable time for an idea presented by last yr engg. Grads ) But the response was really good.

And as on 5th , the news of VOTE-INDIA started flashing in newspapers like TOI, Sakal and on Each and every news channel of the country like NDTV, Zee News, CNBC and Sone pe Suhaga”BBC World” J . In that week, I received calls from friends with whom I was not in touch for last 4-5 years. It was like Dream Come True.

My father always used to tell us “Kahi Tari Bhavy-Divy Karun Dakhavaa!!! ”( Do something really Big/great? ) . On the second day, papa told me, “Manodeep, you did it”. That was the moment I was waiting for in my life. For me the happiness, a proud of being parents of me which I saw on their face is much more important than whether we get the patent for VOTE-INDIA or not.

I still have those mails, greetings people sent me whom I never met and might not meet in the future. Bhau’s colleagues in Sun Microsystem mailed me, congratulating about the developing such a novel concept. One of my junior’s parents sent a greeting card wishing us a successful career. These things are really special for me.

Date : April 4, 2006

Today, I am working with Ensim Corporation, in a domain where I was dreaming to work. Luckily, Abhishek also got the opportunity to do the things which he wanted to do.

And now we are in final stage of getting intellectual property rights for VOTE INDIA. Things are not so easy at this stage as per as the legal battle is considered but still those not impossible too. It is our dream to have such system implemented in India, and we will try our best for that.

Lets hope for the best…….

PS: In Aug – 04, One well known fortune teller told me that, next 2 years will be difficult for me on educationally as well as financially. And if he is right, then one can expect something really great in coming years ;)
