Oh Baby, please hold until next day

Everyone will pray god for a baby to be born safe and sound soon. Have you heard someone praying god for the baby to be born safe and sound few hours late?

This happened years ago, where a mother-to-be is on the verge of giving birth to her first baby. One part of the family were praying god for the baby to be born couple of hours late as that day was Lord Ganesha’s birth day and its not very good to be born on the same day. Another part of the family is praying for the same so that birth date is not 13. I don’t know what the baby thought, it was born safe and sound the next day at 1:02 AM. Yes, it missed Ganesha’s birthday and the unlucky number 13.
When the baby was born, everybody were in joy and forgot what they prayed for, all were happy to see the new born coming to life safe and sound.

The baby did not know about this until after 10 years when my mother told this story to me. Yes, that baby was me born on 14th Sep 1979. I felt proud that day. When I think about this now….well I don’t know what to say…..Be happy and make others happy…..and live your life with full satisfaction

My Quotes

These are not the quotes from great people, but my own. You don’t have to be great to come up with own quotes. Sometimes experience and too much thinking alone is enough to come up with your own. Here are few of my quotes.

Sometimes I think why should I work, but I don’t have any choice and it’s not programmed to include any choice.

People say Google is your second brain. I say, it’s your brain which makes the Google to work your way

Every time I get something to do, I don't think, "Is it possible", instead I think "Let's try it" and I always succeed.

I think, what I think,  to make you think, that both think right.

To do work on your own is good, but to make others to do your work is the best.

Some of you may wonder about the my blog's name, 'Palay'. I was born in 'Palayamkottai', place in south Tamilnadu (Tirunelveli Disctrict). The place is also called, 'Oxford of South India' and famous for its jail. Both Mahakavi Bharathiyaar and Kalaigar were held in Palayamkottai jail before independence. No one can forget 'Tirunelveli Halwa'.

Happy New Year and My first Blog!

I know its 16 days late. I thought I would start my own blog this New Year, but got lazy as usual.

My third New Year in Sydney, gosh 3 years away from home. When I look back, I start to think what did I achieve in the past 3 years. I feel I have wasted my valuable time. I did not learn driving, did not buy a house, no investments. I told myself, you lived your life without any goal in your mind to be proud of living your life.

Past is past, there is no point thinking about it now. Oh! what am I writing here, that too on my first blog making you bored. Let talk about some of my moments last year.

January 2009 – Flew to Bangalore to get married for the first time (well for the last time too!). I won’t say this is a happy moment, but a thrilling period with lot of thoughts going around my mind few weeks before wedding.

February 2009 – The most thrilling time to start with. 1st was my engagement, 2nd was the wedding day, 8th went for honeymoon and 11th back to work from Bangalore. 23rd left alone to Sydney hoping my wife will arrive soon. The rest of the days went just waiting, waiting and waiting.

March 2009 – 6th my wife arrived Sydney. I did what not to get her with me as quick as possible. I made several calls to Aus embassy at Sydney, Aus high commission at New Delhi, Visa office, MindTree travel desk. Yes,I was going crazy on this, and once she came in 2 weeks after my lonely return I never looked back to even think about the people I called several times.

Okay okay, you guys may be thinking what he is writing his autobiography here. Well, the last year just went off just like this without much happenings other than ‘Family man’ title and the PMP certification.

Now I step into 2010, hoping to achieve something which gives me satisfaction and makes others proud.

Happy New Year again to all, may this new year be loving, joyful and satisfying just like this spectacular fireworks flowing through the skies joyfully, brightening up with love and satisfying you eyes.
