Chennai โ€“ Sathya's World
Chennai
Back In India
· โ˜• 4 min read · โœ๏ธ Sathyajith Bhat

Yeah, Iโ€™m back in India. Well, actually landed in Chennai long time [ damn itโ€™s been more than a month o_0 ]. So let me recap whatโ€™s been happening and what Iโ€™ve bene upto.

First thing: the return trip. The return flight was rather uneventful, nowhere near how my flight from Mumbai to Austin was ( well, thatโ€™s a good thing).

My flight itself was rather long ( heck what do ya expect from a transcontinental flight anyway), covering 4 different flights โ€“ American Airlines from Austin to Chicago, and from Chicago to New Yorkย  and Jet Airways from New York to Brussels (stop over) and from Brussels to Chennai.


Celebrating 2 years

Couple of days ago, I tweeted thisย little message. July 9, 2007 is a red letter day for me - for that was the day I started my career as a working professional. As I tweeted that, I was greeted over IM by few of my friends and colleagues. It didn’t strike me much as soon as I tweeted, but few hours later I was just amazed as to how fast time has gone by - and how far I’ve come. To think, I applied for this position as an afterthought (“should I really ? Well.."). That got me into nostalgia mode.


Yes I'm alive!

It’s been ย a while hasn’t it, since I last blogged ? *goes to next tab to check last manual blog post* April 19. God! Hadn’t realized its been so long since I last composed. Yes, I’m alive (hey you’re reading this aren’t ya?). I can hear the collective yells of “where the hell have you been”. Well - work. Been drowned, swamped, overloaded - basically been busy with shit loads of work.

Next question - Am I in Austin ?


So what's been up with me ?

And The Passport Arrives

After running about the Mangalore passport offices, running behind the cops to get verification done, and running to Bangalore passport office and converting the passport application to Tatkal, I finally received my passport in Chennai yesterday.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing though - I could’ve gotten it a LOT earlier but Ayudha Pooja, Vijaya Dashami, holidays caused the Passport application processing to be delayed by a week.


Layoffs galore

SInce the past couple of days, Iโ€™ve been reading lot of email forwards regarding X or Y Company laying off Z people, and frankly it never really bothered me much โ€“ mainly because the forwards arenโ€™t that reliable.

But then today, that whole thing of a layoff really hit me.

Onsite opportunity beckons

Couple of days ago I’d posted a small text on my Tumblelog which went like this:

next couple of days could give me a very important break in my career. Will it happen or wonโ€™tย ? Hoping for the former.

That was cryptic, wasn’t it ? Atleast Reetesh thought so!

So to clear up, did it happen? Did I get the break: the answer is YES! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

And what’s the big break? Well, I’ve been" identified" as a technical resourceย for onsite implementation of the current project I’m working on. Quite a mouthful eh? Basically, I will be accompanying the implementor(the functional guy) and lending him assistance with regard to technical issues, data migration etc.

So why was I so cryptic in the first place? And what’s with “identified”, ย you may be wondering huh ? Read on.
