There and back..

And yes – it is one of the most satisfying feelings to have been there and done that. The fact that I was allowed to take the entire talk on Intellectual Property was an added sweetener to the whole situation. The moment I stood up to introduce myself will forever remain etched in my memory, something like the daffodils.

And though I would love to be modest, I did a damn fine job at enchanting a lot of people.

Off to Pilani

I am going to Pilani for the next couple of days for recruitment. It is one of the most amazing feeling to be back to your alma mater, and that you are on the other side of the table this time makes it that much more special..

More on the trip once I return. Bye..

Celebrations & Apologies

I imported all posts and comments from our old group blog today. The blog has now been dormant for more than a year, the last post being one on the Hyderabad trip. I just wanted to back it up for the future. The blog posts contain a lot of trip reviews, nice little conversations, lot of debates, and some awesome memories. The blog itself was the brain child of Ankit and it slowly transformed into a group blog. It was pretty damn active while I was still at BITS and Rahul doing his PS. And then after that it lost steam.

Anyways, due to the Twitter plugin, the import resulted in a couple of friends being totally spammed. I am so sorry folks. Never meant to.

Note to self – Before any importing or exporting or updates or anything else, deactivate all plugins!!

Johnnie Walker advert..

I am a sucker for good sports writing. And below is a nugget I stumbled upon the web. Link via Cricinfo – The Surfer.

Laxman’s walk to the crease is all purposeful, rolling-shouldered, Johnnie Walker advert. Once there, he combines a stillness of demeanour with a bustle of run-seeking. Unlike in Sydney, his innings at Perth wasn’t filled with strokes that picked the ball 13 cms from outside off and sent the disoriented thing to mid-wicket, but he could still look like he was batting for pleasure. At the end-of-day press conference, he remarked bafflingly that he enjoyed playing under pressure. Perhaps he thinks the words are synonyms.

Another one, a quote from Sir Garry Sobers, on receiving a threat from Dennis Lillee, to Ian Chappell. This one comes before the famous 245 he scored for the rest of the world against the Australian side.

Well.. he’s got the ball, and I’ve got the bat and we will see.

Yahoo integrates Del.icio.us – Finally!!

I remember having a conversation with a Yahoo! friend of mine, a month and a half back,  in which we debated the integration of Del.icio.us bookmarks in Yahoo! Search results.

Seems like it is finally happening. Yay!
