Fun at office meetings

Fun at office meetings
Office meetings are fun, when everyone's not inside a room, when we are just on a VOIP call, when you can't be seen by people at the other end and this happens.

First time: Pasta at home

Homemade Pasta

The wife wanted to eat some pasta. And she was in no mood to walk into the kitchen. And so, the journey began.

Office Chronicles - Appraisal meetings

One on one meetings
Its that time of the year when everyone's going through their appraisal meetings. For most, its going to be a happier next year. For the rest, well, wait one more year.

The manager ends the meeting by saying:
"We will see next year."

Office Chronicles: Take the plunge and...

Taking the plunge
I just don't feel like coming to office. All the day I wonder if I could just jump out of my seat and do something else with myself. But reality bites me soon, and I postpone my plan, for another day.

Office Chronicles: We are happy when...

Long weekends
For any weekend that starts or ends with an extra vacation is just amazing. Its like experiencing torrential rains in the middle of the desert. The planning for long weekends normally start when the the holiday list is announced.

However, there would always be people who would book there tickets just a day before. Rich people, I say.

Office Chronicles: Race to the Pantry

Race to the pantry
The guy (Ritu) who is always rushing; needs to get hold of the first lot of everything that enters the pantry. Not for any specific reason. 

Me thinks either he is always too hungry, or he doesn't have any work.

The original Ra 'One

The Ten Heads of Raavan
It's sometimes such fun to watch these on TV. And it's a wonder that TV channels still show these priceless movies/series. The viewership of the old archives is going down. Someday or the other, I guess, they will stop showing them. Good that we have Youtube, where we can just find anything from the past.

Babycorn manchurain: The cook returns

The first try

The wife wanted something spicy and something different. I insisted on Chicken Manchurian. But being a vegetarian, she discarded the idea. I still wanted something close to that. Tried Babycorn Manchurian for the first time, and I would give it a rating of 11/10.

The wife says its better than the best that she has had ever. I know what that means. She wants me to prepare the next time as well.

Evening snacks and weekend, and a really old Bollywood flick

The Taste of India
They don't look like samosas. But, believe me, they are. And fried papads, dhaniya chutney and ginger tea. On a rainy evening weekend, what more do you need? The TV was playing some old movie. Govinda's and Kader Khan's double role. Don't remember the name.

Lost travellers

Gone for a swim
Hmmm. Someone left their belongings went went away for rafting, or swimming perhaps. I hope she still remembers where she had kept these after they return. These were lying unattended at the riverside.

Cheese Cake (Chenna Poda)

Odiya Sweet Dish
This sweet cake is an Odiya speciality. I just loved this when i was a child. And whenever it rains, the child in me comes out to play. I tried this for the first time, and it wasn't too bad. Actually, it was quite good for a first timer.

Chenna Poda: Means "Burnt Cheese Cake". By the way, according to history, Rasogulla, was another Odiya delicacy, first made here. But with time, people have been attributing the origins of this sweet to West Bengal. If you are travelling to Odissa, don't forget to taste a few Rasogullas. Not the canned ones. The originals, are a lot softer than what you might have normally tasted. And you might bot believe me, but you won't get those original Rasogullas anywhere else.

Enough. Let me enjoy my Chenna Poda first.

Holi... That was ugly...

Why are we happy here?

I can't laugh enough on this pic. Its hard to tell who is who, one of them is me, and you can figure that out because I am wearing glasses.

I don't even remember who the other guy is. Anyway, got colored after so many years. Have been missing Holi for some years now. But, it was fun.

The perfect moon

At Bangalore Airport
Had to catch an early morning flight from the Bangalore International Airport. It was still dark when we reached the airport. And I couldn't miss the view. And I thought, this needs to be captured. Believe me, the actual view was far better than the image.

Veg Biriyani for Lunch

Veg biriyani, Raita

Was trying for the first time at home. Was expecting a disaster, but somehow it was very very tasty. Will try chicken biriyani next time.

Too bad, the wife is a vegeterian.

Well, not so little, but the picture is cute. I would like to have a mini model of it, and keep it on my desk.

The roads are calling.


The view is very tempting. The empty roads always make my adrenaline rush, a little extra. Looking at it, I think to myself if I just had all the time in this world to spend days and months on the roads.

My bike actually is yearning for a long ride for quite some time; me too. It will, soon, have its chance. But, before that, it needs a little servicing.
