Memorable!!! Staying together for 3 years in the college, we did every nasty thing together, bunked classes together, fought and played among us, made fun of each other...and many more. Those were and will be the most unforgettable days in my life.

For most of us, many people come into life as strangers and you don't even know they will be your best friends forever. These are my friends whom I have shared most of my troubles, fun and happiness. They stood with me in hard times and supported me. 

Let me have the honor of introducing my best buddies here in the photograph. Starting with the seating ones from the right!
Ravi, Sudheer, Sridhar and standing one is myself. This is our memorable day together after three long years. We met each other separately, but we couldn't  make a joint meet  together. But this weekend was a happy weekend, since we talked among us and made fun of ourselves. We all are settled in four different places of the country after graduation. Ravi pursued higher studies, Sudheer moved to Mysore, Sridhar got placed in Noida and me in Bangalore. Nothing could stop us to talk at any time. Sudheer is a bit emotional type guy among us. He literally cried when he was attending training alone in mysore. We used to chat often and talk to get to know whats happening around...

Ravi, I know you have advised me many times and helped me alot. I will never forget the help I got from you. You are rocking. You have a different perception of life and I admire it to the most. 

Sridhar, You are the ultracool, smart hero among us, but yet dont have any girlfriends. Poor guy! ....Osei, though you always make fun of sudheer and me, we like you dude...

Coming to a 25 year old kid in our team, Sudheer, this dude used to be much heavier than me in college. Now look at the photograph, he reduced his weight by 50% on his own. And you all should know the reason why?.... Not for a girl friend or for  inconvenience in normal day life. The answer is he wants to wear good T shirts and Jeans which were available only at small size waist than his. But finally he achieved it.

Guys!!! I really miss you all. Really I am attached to you and your friendship.I haven't said these to you in the college or till now, because I know when I say this you would definitely say "Overacting bandh karo"? :) But still that the truth from my Heart.

All the Best Guys!!

Yours Balla

Wishing my sister a great life and future ahead.

Today, is the day,when all my family members say it as a lucky day for our family. My Dad still believes that she is lucky for him. My mom pours her entire love on this little being for the entire day. Yes it is the arrival of my little sister Mamatha into our family. Its her birthday. We proudly say that she is our lucky mascot. 

Many Many Happy returns of the Day, Mamatha!! I wish you a wonderful life ahead.

Hmm.. What to say!!! Ok I should be polite and sweet to her on her birthday...but...Siblings always fight for something or other.
Let me remember a day, when we fought each other.Yes!! ... we use to quarrel for TV, school bags, new books and even at food. As usual my mom prepares some sweet dishes on each of our birthday. We generally don't celebrate our birthdays. So no cake cutting etc., Yeah, she doesn't like sweets at all but me ha ha I like them lot..My mom prepares more sweets and dishes on her birthday.. This is the point where the fight begins between us. This generally becomes big and reaches my dad. As told before, since my dad considers her as lucky, he wouldn't say NO on her birthday. She gets all her wishes fulfilled from her father on this day. This makes me sit with mom and say..." Amma!!! Mera number kab aayega?"  ..Sweet Memories!!!

Though I am elder to her, she behaves as she is elder to me in the  family and takes care of our family members. Such a dynamic lady in our entire family have supported me in many of my troubles. When our Family stand beside us and support you in all the times of the life, What else more we need.. 

Once again Mamatha, Wish you a Happy Birthday,

Wow!! Blogging has been made so easy and beautiful. Thanks to Weebly. I always thought of expressing my views and opinions on the net using many blogging tools, yet ended up using all blog providers having a clumsy look with Ads and limited space on the entire page. I don't even understand why only a quarter of the web page is been provided and other three quarters are not even being used. Strange!!. People say it for the advertisements which make the site owners pocket fill, but I don't think even the site owner will not be interested in making money expressing his thoughts. Anyhow I feel comfortable for finding a blogging site on my own. 

Finally What I say is, this is an awesome blogging site to share information. There are many features to explore.

Happy Blogging Guys!!



    I love to share my thoughts, opinions, views and a little knowledge about my work on BI domain. My blog would contain random information of some technical domains, hobbies, discussions etc,
