Brilliant News

Here's some great news...our organisation now has an alliance with a certain well-reputed American organisation. Yes, I know you want to know the name but I don't think I should indulge in that! Anyhow, the good thing is that we get to share their resources and training systems and technology. We also get access to world-class footage of places where we normally can't keep correspondents. The best part about the deal is that they have no hand in our editorial or managerial policies! Rumours are that competitors were vying for the same deal. Apparently, the Americans are quite astounded by our facilities and the progress we've made over the last few weeks.
So, we were all pretty elated in office and had awesome black forest cake for celebration:)
The sad part is that we still don't get paid in dollars:( {Asking for too much, eh?}
Look forward to updating you more on this...after all, the journey has just begun.

Of Love and Hate

"Love and hate don't cancel out each other. It's possible for them to co-exist and drive you mad."
-Erich Segal (Man, Woman and Child)

I really like the line....meaning, you can love and hate the same person for different reasons...both extremely strong emotions and I guess it would be maddening to love and hate someone. Strange situation, don't you think?

A long weekend!

I had a 3-day weekend...good fun:)
On thursday afternoon we were told we could have the next 3 days off. So I just called up mom dad and asked them to take me home...seriously, there's no place like home. I went back after a week and felt so good:)
On friday, I just lazed around, watched tv, surfed the net and talked on the phone.

Then on saturday, I met up Toni and Ruchi for lunch and it was good fun. We met up in Subroto Park and Ruch and I took a walk before Toni reached and it felt like hostel days. Then we proceeded to Priya's for lunch...had chinese at YO dish was fine but Ruch wasn't too happy with hers...Toni was thrilled about the babycorn and the mushrooms! After that, we went to Lajpat thinking we'll shop at Sabhyata and it turned out that a sale was on there but sadly, none of us liked anything! We then proceeded to Westside and no, I did not buy anything this week! For the last 3 consecutive weeks, I have been shopping from Westside...don't you think they should give me a discount?? Anyhow, Ruchi bought a cute purple top and then Toni had to leave. That night we also had a party at Akash Mess - Jaggi uncle had invited us...the food was yummmmmmmmmm...Ruch was also invited so basically both of us chatted more! Shalu was also supposed to come but she wasn't feeling too well.
Then on sunday, we went for satsang and I just lazed around for the rest of the day. Today morning dad dropped me back and I'm in NOIDA for the rest of the week.
More later...
