A farewell

A close friend of mine will be leaving Bangalore soon, marking the way that we all are going to live our lives separately. Four years out of college, and it still hasn't sunk-in that we are gravitating away from the back-slapping chumminess that we share with our friends. But now friends will go their separate ways, and I will take mine and hope that we keep in touch.

I'm not particularly sad or broody about him leaving, its just that he won't be near enough for me to drop into his place every time I feel like. I'm going to miss him just like I miss the Dehradun winters, wistfully and retrospectively.

Deutschland raft!

They say an opportunity comes dressed in overalls and looks a lot like work... umm, I don't know, it looks a lot like football to me :) The lucky bastards of  the SAPLabs India football team are getting an enviable chance to tour Germany! How lucky is that?
Heheh ... well considering that I have been working there for the past two years and never got a chance to go for work, this seems like a great offer. Fly to Germany with all your buddies, have no work hassles, play football in the evenings and just roam around Europe in whatever free time that you get. Oh and I forgot, drink all the freshly brewed beer. Awesome!
So, duly, I have my passport photo snapped and my Visa form filled and my fingers crossed for a first taste of Europe.
P.S. any suggestions for places to visit WILL BE considered seriously!
