Month: October 2007

Caught by Squad!

Friday, 26th October 2007, 1720 hrs
Bangalore City Railway Station.

Sailu has to catch Kachiguda Express.I have one Five rupee coin, one old Two rupee coin and two new One rupee coins in my wallet.Any combination of these coins will not please Platform Ticket Vending Machine to dispense one ticket for me.So I went to the counter, saw the serpentine queue and took chance! Sailu warned me. But I ignored her advice.

We both entered the Platform-1 took left and headed to over bridge to reach Platform-3.Climbed on to it. Saw a Ticket Examiner but ignored him as he is at the exit and I am not going towards him.

“Ticket Sir”, a female voice of a Railway Squad member.

Result : Paid 250/- as fine.
Lesson: Never take chance.

Got role change

Last Friday [ 05-Oct-07] I got a mail from HR that my role has been changed to PA.Climbed one rung ( the first one, of course) in the so called “corporate ladder”

Though this news is in air from quite sometime, it has been announced formally on last Friday.

However, I still have to wait for 6 more months i.e till April,2008 to reap its benefits fully!

Seems like my decision to stick is paying off. But still have to wait for some more time to fully cherish.
