Too complex, but too simple!

A simple thing can dragged to the core of complexity is made and achieved by one element in this world, is unfortunately the human being. The points are clear, it is a straight line between A and B. Where A, is the time of birth and B the time of extinction. between these two points is we forcefully create c, d, e, f till z and then come to B. Between these two certainties A and B, we create the complex variables that simply drags the journey and time space that makes it more tougher to reach point B. But as when everyone who have reached point B will realize that all that took to reach here was simply not necessary at all. 

We have to understand a lot from the animals who are less intelligent, and we shouldn't be proud about our intelligence because we are the ones who made everything harder to exists. animals are intelligent in their own ways and they are perfectly blended to their world of necessities. They know that there isn't a true certain purpose and they never question or reason their existence. They very well understand life's certainties and abide by it simple law. exists, co exist, survive and perish. 
Most may be resistant to this feeling and would reason, so what’s the point of all this? we just cannot simply live without a purpose and die. We are here to do something! well, that something what we do is the complexities that we create which turns back and hits us even harder and makes us suffer every day. The choice we took to do that 'something' took a very wrong turn. 
Maybe it wasn't the right idea that was shared, maybe the mind fail to understand the simplexes of life. 
Living is living, an there is no world to conquer or over power because you only been given a set time and anything that you do today will not be forever because you are not forever. 

If united we understand the reason of our existence and we lessen things gradually. we might feel great that what a place we lived what a life we were in, at point B

First indiblogger meet

This was the first time I thought I was doing something decent.  This was when i thought i was being constructive with a team of professionals like Renie Ravin. It was indeed a good thought of creating a platform for bloggers to network and engage real time.

After the platform was made live, there were online registrations which was activated for using the platform  One of the bloggers who were in touch and was working with Microsoft as an intern, she connected and invited us to come of the to the Bangalore Head office and conduct a blogger meet supporting one of their newly developed product called Windows Live writer.

It was all new and this was the first meet so the preparation were pretty interesting. We had to keep the crowd engaged so we planned the program, agenda and schedule to a good extent.
We put up a post and invited all bloggers whoever were using the portal and the crowd turned out to be pretty good.

Good discussion, more technical and focused on the product. MS tried to get some mileage with this meet but it just couldn't because there were existing products that were more compatible and easier in application.
However the meet went well, it gave the team the confidence to conduct more meets and engage more blogger and create a stronger community.

Lets play cricket!

It was a Saturday morning and waking up is the most difficult part after a night out of shots blasting. I had to make it to this game cuz me and few other guys arranged for this. Had to book the place in advance, had to get everyone notified.

I was working at this web agency called BroadSpire, a place that made me understand my real capabilities  great team mates, grate superiors, very good management team over all.   

We were supposed to start by 6 am and to keep up our time, we started by 7 , cuz for a hours we were all walking over the pitch like zombies...

The most sleepy ones decided to be the umpire (referee) and the few others just wanted to sit and keep a track of overs and scores. basically slackers…

Most important and fun part is that my team won all the matches …yeah! We kicked some ass I say…

And yes that’s me facing the first strike. If u look close I’m not even looking at the ball, just closed my eyes and tried whacking it and i think i completely missed it!

So, that's how I play cricket. I don't play cricket, and i really don't like playing cricket.  i play football, volleyball and badminton. 

Its like after playing cricket, you don't feel that you played something, there is no sport it in. Well the other sports i play i can't keep up more than hour and a half, yes, volley ball i can keep playing but the rest is just that you need a lot of energy. 

Moreover cricket is too commercial now, it not a sport anymore, its like politics and Bollywood with too much of corruption and drama. 
I just love the company, enjoy time when spent with good people, so that's why i was there. 

(and that shot was straight for 4 runs… it was like playing the game after 10 years and I could manage to hit a 4 … was glorious! and I kinda felt like those dork at the moment)

The group of people you see are from my office.
