Thank You Sachin : A Tribute by Google+ and India

Emotional Speech of Sachin Tendulkar after his retirement

The most important person in my life, and I have missed him a lot since 1999 when he passed away, my father. Without his guidance, I don't think I would have been standing here in front of you. He gave me freedom at the age of 11, and told me that [I should] chase my dreams, but make sure you do not find short cuts. The path might be difficult, but don't give up, and I have simply followed his instructions. Above all, he told me to be a nice human being, which I will continue to do and try my best. Every time I have done something special [and] showed my bat, it was [for] my father.

Sachin Tendulkar's farewell speech moved the Wankhede crowd to tears. BCCI

All my friends. Settle down let me talk, I will get more and more emotional (crowd gets louder and louder as he composes himself). My life, between 22 yards for 24 years, it is hard to believe that that wonderful journey has come to an end, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank people who have played an important role in my life. Also, for the first time in my life I am carrying this list, to remember all the names in case I forget someone. I hope you understand. It's getting a little bit difficult to talk but I will manage.
My mother, I don't know how she dealt with such a naughty child like me. I was not easy to manage. She must be extremely patient. For a mother, the most important thing is that her child remains safe and healthy and fit. That was what she was most bothered and worried about. She took care of me for the last 24 years that I have played for India, but even before that she started praying for me the day I started playing cricket. She just prayed and prayed and I think her prayers and blessings have given me the strength to go out and perform, so a big thank you to my mother for all the sacrifices.
In my school days, for four years, I stayed with my uncle and aunt because my school was quite far from my home, and they treated me like their son. My aunt, after having had a hard day's play, I would be half asleep and she would be feeding me food so I could go again and play tomorrow. I can't forget these moments. I am like their son and I am glad it has continued to be the same way.
My eldest brother, Nitin, and his family, have always encouraged me. My eldest brother doesn't like to talk much, but the one thing he always told me is that whatever you do, I know you will always give it 100%, and that I have full faith and confidence in you. His encouragement meant a lot to me. My sister, Savita, and her family, was no different. The first cricket bat of my life was presented to me by my sister. It was a Kashmir willow bat. But that is where the journey began. She is one of those many who still continue to fast when I bat, so thank you very much.
Ajit, my brother, now what do I talk about him? I don't know. We have lived this dream together. He was the one who sacrificed his career for my cricket. He spotted the spark in me. And it all started from the age of 11 when he took me to Archrekar sir, my coach, and from there on my life changed. You will find this hard to believe but even last night he called to discuss my dismissal, knowing that there was a remote chance of batting again, but just the habit we have developed, the rapport we have developed, since my birth, has continued and it will continue. Maybe when I'm not playing cricket we will still be discussing technique.
Various things we agreed upon, my technique, and so many technical things which I didn't agree with him, we have had arguments and disagreements, but when I look back at all these things in my life, I would have been a lesser cricketer.
The most beautiful thing happened to me in 1990 when I met my wife, Anjali. Those were special years and it has continued and will always continue that way. I know Anjali, being a doctor; there was a wonderful career in front of her. When we decided to have a family, Anjali took the initiative to step back and say that 'you continue with your cricket and I will take the responsibility of the family'.
Without that, I don't think I would have been able to play cricket freely and without stress. Thanks for bearing with all my fuss and all my frustrations, and all sorts of rubbish that I have spoken. Thanks for bearing with me and always staying by my side through all the ups and downs. You are the best partnership I've had in my life.
Then, the two precious diamonds of my life, Sara and Arjun. They have already grown up. My daughter is 16, my son is 14. Time has flown by. I wanted to spend so much time with them on special occasions like their birthdays, their annual days, their sports day, going on holidays, whatever. I have missed out on all those things. Thanks for your understanding. Both of you have been so, so special to me you cannot imagine. I promise you [that] for 14 and 16 years I have not spent enough time with both of you, but the next 16 years or even beyond that, everything is for you.
My in-laws, Anand Mehta and Annabelle, both have been so, so supportive [and] loving and caring. I have discussed on various things in life, generally with them, and have taken their advice. You know, it's so important to have a strong family who is always with you and who are guiding you. Before you start clapping, the most important thing they did was allowing me to marry Anjali, so thank you very much.
In the last 24 years that I have played for India I have made new friends, and before that I have had friends from my childhood. They have all had a terrific contribution. As and when I have called them to come and bowl to me at the nets, they have left their work aside to come and help me. Be it joining me on holidays and having discussions with me on cricket, or how I was a little stressed and wanting to find a solution so I can perform better.
The memories you have left with me will always be with me forever and ever, especially "Sachin, Sachin" which will reverberate in my ears till I stop breathing
All those moments my friends were with me. Even for when I was injured, I would wake up in the morning because I couldn't sleep and thought that my career was over because of injuries, that is when my friends have woken up at 3 o'clock in the morning to drive with me and make me believe that my career was not over. Life would be incomplete without all those friends. Thanks for being there for me.
My cricket career started when I was 11. The turning point of my career was when my brother (Ajit) took me to Achrekar sir. I was extremely delighted to see him up in the stands. Normally he sits in front of the television and he watches all the games that I play. When I was 11/12, those were the days when I used to hop back on his scooter and play a couple of practice matches a day. The first half the innings I would be batting at Shivaji Park, the second half, at some other match in Azad Maidan. He would take me all over Mumbai to make sure I got match practice.
On a lighter note, in the last 29 years, sir has never ever said 'well played' to me because he thought I would get complacent and I would stop working hard. Maybe he can push his luck and wish me now, well done on my career, because there are no more matches, sir, in my life. I will be witnessing cricket, and cricket will always stay in my heart, but you have had an immense contribution in my life, so thank you very much.
My cricket for Mumbai started right here on this ground, the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), which is so dear to me. I remember landing from New Zealand at four o'clock in the morning, and turning up for a game here at eight o'clock just because I wanted to be a part of Mumbai cricket, and not that somebody forced me. That was for the love of Mumbai cricket, and thank you very much. The president is here so thank you very much, along with your team, for taking care of me and looking after my cricket.
The dream was obviously to play for India, and that is where my association with BCCI started. BCCI was fantastic, right from my debut they believed in my ability and selecting me into the squad at the age of 16 was a big step, so thanks to all the selectors for having faith in me and the BCCI for giving me the freedom to express myself out in the middle. Things would have been different if you had not been behind me, and I really appreciate your support. Especially when I was injured, you were right with me and making sure that all the treatments were taken care of, and that I got fit and fine and playing [right] back for India.
The journey has been special, the last 24 years, I have played with many senior cricketers, and even before that there were many senior cricketers with whom I watched on television. They inspired me to play cricket, and to play in the right way. Thanks to all those senior cricketers, and unfortunately I have not been able to play with them, but I have high regards for all their achievements and all their contributions.
Sachin Tendulkar 1990 We see it on the mega-screen, Rahul, Laxman, Sourav, and Anil, who is not here, and my team-mates right here in front me. You are like my family away from home. I have had some wonderful times with you. It is going to be difficult to not be part of the dressing room, sharing those special moments. All the coaches for their guidance, it has been special for me. I know when MS Dhoni presented me the 200th Test match cap on day one morning. I had a brief message for the team. I would like to repeat that. I just feel that all of us are so, so fortunate and proud to be part of the Indian cricket team and serving the nation.
Knowing all of you guys, I know you will continue to serve the nation in the right spirit and right values. I believe we have been the lucky ones to be chosen by the Almighty to serve this sport. Each generation gets this opportunity to take care of this sport and serve it to the best of our ability. I have full faith in you to continue to serve the nation in the right spirit and to the best of your ability, to bring all the laurels to the country. All the very best.
I would be failing in my duties if I did not thank all the doctors, the physios, the trainers, who have put this difficult body together to go back on the field and be able to play. The amount of injuries that I have had in my career, I don't know how you have managed to keep me fit, but without your special efforts, it would never have happened. The doctors have met me at weird hours. I mean I have called them from Mumbai to Chennai, Mumbai to Delhi, I mean wherever. They have just taken the next flight and left their work and families to be with me, which has allowed me to play. So a big thank you to all three of you for keeping me in good shape.
My dear friend, late Mark Mascarenhas, my first manager. We unfortunately lost him in a car accident in 2001, but he was such a well-wisher of cricket, my cricket, and especially Indian cricket. He was so passionate. He understood what it takes to represent a nation and gave me all the space to go out and express myself, and never pressurized me to do this ad or promotion or whatever the sponsors demanded. He took care of that and today I miss him, so thank you Mark for all your contribution.
My current management team, WSG, for repeating what Mark has done, because when I signed the contract I exactly told them what I want from them, and what it requires to represent me. They have done that and respected that.
Someone who has worked closely with me for 14 years is my manager, Vinod Nayudu. He is more like my family and all the sacrifices, spending time away from his family for my work, has been special, so big thank you to his family as well for giving up so much time for my work with Vinod.
In my school days, when I performed well, the media backed me a lot. They continue to do that till this morning. Thank you so much to the media for supporting and appreciating my performances. It surely had a positive effect on me. Thank you so much to all the photographers as well for those wonderfully captured moments that will stay with me for the rest of my life, so a big thank you to all the photographers.
I know my speech is getting a bit too long (crowd roars), but this is the last thing I want to say. I want to thank all the people here who have flown in from various parts of the world, and have supported me endlessly, whether I scored a 0 or a 100-plus. Your support was so dear to me and meant a lot to me. Whatever you have done for me.
I know I have met so many guys who have fasted for me, prayed for me, done so much for me. Without that life wouldn't have been like this for me. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, and also say that time has flown by rather quickly, but the memories you have left with me will always be with me forever and ever, especially "Sachin, Sachin" which will reverberate in my ears till I stop breathing. Thank you very much. If I have missed out on saying something, I hope you understand. Goodbye.

The words that worth Billion Dollars

The misfits.

The rebels.

The troublemakers.

The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.

They're not fond of rules.

And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.

For You Nirbhaya .. Hang The Rapist !!!

Please take 5 minutes to read this post. I write this post for Nirbhaya, the Delhi Brave Heart. I know nothing is going to change by me writing this post because we live in INDIA. I am not here to criticize India; I just want to express my feelings.
Hang the rapist

The incident happened on 16th December 2012, Delhi, India. A 23 year girl was brutally killed by 6 animals (they don’t deserve to be addressed as humans). Even animals won’t do such things. The girl was beaten with iron rod and raped by those 6 animals. The iron rod was used for penetration which damaged her internal organs. The police spokesman said one of the accuse abused the victim twice and ripped off the internal organs with bare hands. Due to internal injuries, bleeding and organ failure she died in 13 days of incident. The case was put into fast court and it took 9 months to process (fast court in India is 9 months).
In those 6 animals, one person named Ram Singh committed suicide in the jail, am happy that he took his own punishment. One of the guy was minor, he was the guy who inserted iron rod and damaged her internal organs, that brutal animal was given minimal punishment of just 3 years imprisonment in a reform facility which was inclusive of the eight months he spent in remand during the trial. That was not a fair justice though he passed 18 years now. The other 4 was bought to court and sentence was to be given on September 13th 2013.
There are many public protests going on in Delhi and various other places in India. This verdict should be the end of all crimes against women in India. There shouldn’t be given any mercy for this act. They should be hanged. The punishment given to them should teach lessons to each and every person in our country. According to me even hanging them is not the ultimate punishment, hanging them will make them feel the pain of death just for few seconds. They should be given more brutal punishment which should make them realize the pain of brave girl who is resting in peace now. The punishment should create fear in each individual which should make them not even to think such things.
Crime against women is never ending story in India. Even after death of Nirbhaya, there were many rape cases reported like 5 year old girl who was raped by inserting bottles and candles, photo journalist in Bombay and the list goes on. So what’s the end of such crime? The judgment of this case decides the fate of Indian women in the future.

Main Accused in Nirbhaya Rape Case Hangs Himself You Say

Let’s join our hands. Come forward. Protest to protect our women around us. Hang the rapist! There shouldn’t be any second thoughts, if such crimes are found the rapist should be hanged immediately. This should be made compulsory law. It is more brutal than murder because, if a person is murder they are dead immediately but after rape she have to live her whole life with that pain. That’s the worst thing that could happen to anyone.
Before thinking about doing such things, just think, today it could be someone; tomorrow it will be to your friend or relative. So let’s come forward to protect our friend, relative, women of future India. Never forget you are into this earth because of a women, respect women, protect women. Thank you.

I am writing this post for PROTSAHAN India Foundation is a youth based international nonprofit organization that uses the innovative approaches of Design, Art, Digital Stories, Photography, Technology & Cinema to foster Creative Education and Sustainable Livelihoods at bottomest of pyramid among at risk street & slum children facing drugs, sex abuse and special conditions. This year Protosahan joined hands with UNITED NATIONS [Unicef].

I am going to write about two topics that were suggested by Protosahan and Unisef. Before I start writing I wanted to say that I am trying to include any statistics or data about these topics, whatever I write below are from my own thoughts and my own words. I will try to make it interesting and informative.

#1. Gender Violence against women and young girls in India

This is the right time to discuss about the topic “gender violence against women in India” because recently we saw many incidents which made us to think about this topic (I don’t want to quote any examples and hurt anybody’s feelings). The main problem in today’s society is that women are being sexually harassed and brutally treated. And the saddest part is that even children became victim for such activities, the children who doesn’t even understand the meaning of sex is becoming victim.  There are many campaigns taking place about this, many politicians or other famous people talking about this but do we see any difference in the result? The answer is No. So what do we do!!!!

Does making punishments strong such as hanging them in public or beating them to death can solve this issue? No! Because Indian law doesn’t permit such activities. So what to do we do? We are future of tomorrow, the only way to eradicate such activities is teaching our kids. Parents shouldn’t feel bad in teaching kids about sex education. We should teach our young girls of how to differentiate between good and bad man, how to protect themselves from any violence. And we should teach our young boys of how to become that right men.

Recently I read about a cause Ring The Bell, and I loved their concept. They say if you hear any neighbor women’s scream (i.e. if you feel they are been tortured) just go and ring the bell of their home. At least for a moment they will stop torturing. It’s a simple thing which everyone can do. So I wanted to say if you feel any violence is happening to women around you, please don’t step back, come forward and fight for them. Today it may be for someone; tomorrow it may happen to your own sisters or friends. Fight for women, they are most precious gifts in earth. If there is no women then you or me don’t exists.

#2. Issue of Open Defecation and Sanitation in urban slums

“Issue of Open Defecation and Sanitation in urban slums” is a never ending topic which is been discussed in India for long time and never found a solution. In this blog-post I will try to suggest some solutions that can be implemented to solve this issue. This became main issue because defecating and sanitizing in open place is causes many problems; it creates many disease which will affect the people living in that place, it will pollute the drinking air and water, it grows life killing insects, etc. I feel its important discuss about solutions for this problem rather than discussing about the issue. 

So what do we do?
The main reason why people do such activities is that lack of awareness about the consequences that they going to face in future. So our motto is to educate the illiterate people about proper usage of toilets. There are many campaigns ran by TV shows to educate about this problem but that is not enough, we need to go to slums and educate them directly.
It is literally impossible for government to build toilets everywhere. But government should make some initiate to build toilets in slum areas.
Government should make some initiative in cleaning the slums, so it prevents mosquitos and other insects grow in those areas.
Provide education to the kids in slums. Education is the only solution for any problem that is prevailing in this society. If it is made free and compulsory and if kids start studying 90% of problem in society is solved.

Thank you for spending your valuable time in reading my Blog-post. I thank Protosahan and UNITED NATIONS [Unicef] for giving me this wonderful opportunity. Looking forward for a great future ahead.

I saw , I learnt

I am sharing what 'I Saw and I Learnt' at BlogAdda.com in association with DoRight.in.

Let us not waste any more time and #CelebrateBlogging by blogging our learning's from what we have.

Learning #1 : Humanity
My friend and I was walking in a street and an ambulance passes us, I saw my friend praying to god suddenly (usually we touch our fingers to lips and whisper) and I asked her what are you doing.? She said I just prayed that whoever in that ambulance should be recovered/get well soon. I asked do you know who was in that ambulance, she said no, but I know he/she has a family.
We see ambulance daily, if single prayer can change something why don't we pray for them.? Today it might be for someone but someday we may get back those prayers. 

Learning #2 : Save Planet 
We eat chewing gums often and I learnt this from my friend. He never throws away the wrapper of chewing gum while eating; he just keeps it in his pocket. It was weird when I saw for first time, but later I saw him wrapping the chewing gum into wrapper before spitting out. Usually small birds don’t know to differentiate between chewing gum and other food and if it eats chewing gum it can swallow or spit outside and it dies. Thus wrapping in a cover before spitting out chewing gum saves other species. It also prevents other nuisance like sticking under shoes/ other objects of other people.

Learning #3 : Save food
When I was staying in hostel I use to take all food that is available and waste it without eating. During our farewell one of my friends composed a song and played by explaining about the people who starve for food and children who die in hunger. I truly regretted for what I did on that day, and that song changed my life. After that till date I never wasted any food. And by the way his song won a standing ovation from the crowd. 

Learning #4 : Anti-corruption 
When we get caught by a traffic constable for some reason, immediately we will say I will give 100rp and please leave me. But there is friend of mine who never does that, when police say if you pay here its 100rp and if you pay in court its 500rp, he will say I will pay in court or give me receipt for the money which I am paying. That's actually a very good habit; instead of paying 100rp for his pocket we can better pay some extra money for government. The lesson which we should learn is never pay police without getting receipt, it is like we our-self are giving corruption and saying Indian are corrupted. Change should begin from us. 
If you are not afforded to pay 500rp in court at-least just pay 50rp instead to 100rp, in a way it also reduces corruption. 

Learning #5 : Charity begins at home
I learnt this from my mother, we grew up daily and we never use our old dress after some period. Even though the dress is not damaged we find some reason for not using it when we get new dress but there are people who never have dress. So my mom always donated these unused dresses to orphanages and other charity trusts. Instead of just throwing it away we could help the people who want it. 

The learning's which I have mentioned in this post are things which I learnt in my life. These are small things which everyone of can learn and follow. I Saw, I Learnt. Now it’s your turn. :-)

Movies this week- Singam 2 and Pacific Rim

SINGAM 2 (Tamil)

Singam 2, An Indian Police; starring Surya, Anushka, Hansika.  
Such a horrible movie, with crappy story. An Indian police from Thuthukudi, a small town in Tamil Nadu is accessing Interpol's database, helping Interpol officers was too much. 
There are good things in movie like educating students about drug usage, educating students not to waste career in the name of love etc. But that was just part of movie, the major part was chasing the drug dealers.
They say it was action, but it was funny, too noisy. If you wanted to watch a movie which was written for Rajnikanth and Sir Jadeja, go watch this movie. Waste of time and money.


Pacific Rim was a Pathetic Rim. It is a science fiction movie which was animated too much. I guess the movie was remade from some animated Japanese cartoon. 
The movie was based on war between Kaiju(a dragon/dinosaur/monster) vs human made huge robots. The concept was good but if animation was not effective. Good attempt but would have made better. Actors would have performed better. 
Kids would love the movie. 

One common thing in both movies. Kaiju attacked every part of world except India because an Indian Police was protecting India. :-D .. "Indian are king of Indian ocean" (dialogue from Singam2)

My first job

Okay !! Let me explain you how I landed up in my first job as Business Analyst, the interesting part in this story are the problems which I faced before joining.

Business Analyst was the profile which I dreamt during college days because I was specialized in Systems. But unfortunately none of the IT companies came for placement till I complete my course. After I completed my course I was jobless for couple of months, then I decided to join in some start-up company to learn things and jump from there to big company. As I wished I got a call from a start-up company, but to my luck unfortunately the company was shut down in 10 days of my joining. But I couldn't inform this to my parents, friends or relatives, so I decided to join any other job as soon as possible. 

Problem #1

And one fine day I got a mail from college saying an IT company is coming to recruit System guys. And the interview was on 4th of July and I am seeing mail by 3rd July early morning. I was in Bangalore and interview was at Kochi and my dress and other things were in Coimbatore. 
I decided to attend interview, I started from Bangalore around 9 o'clock in morning and reached Coimbatore around 4:30 PM. Then I took my things and got prepared for interview and took a bus to Alathur by 10. The bus which was supposed to reach in 2 hours took 4 hours to reach. 

Problem #2

My college has a weird practice of making students write essay about company before sitting for placements. So by 2 o'clock in midnight I took my laptop to browse about company. When I plugged in smoke started coming from laptop, my battery is gone and I cant use my laptop. And if I didn't submit write up they will not allow me to sit for placements. Then I called up my friend and asked to read the details about company through phone. When I completed it was 3 o'clock and 4:45 o'clock I need to get up and get ready to go college.

Problem #3

First day of interview was over, me and my friend got selected for next day's interview. Unfortunately I just took and came one dress and it was already dirty because of travelling. I had no dress to wear for next day's interview, then I called up my friend and asked for a dress. I went to his home took dress and stayed in my friend's room. 

Problem #4

Final round of interview was over and I got selected for interview. I went back to Coimbatore to take my things. Monday 7th July I was to join the company, Sunday night I planned to take bus from Coimbatore. Bus is by 9:30, my cousin came with me to drop at bus stand. We were coming in car and all of sudden a women came in bike and dashed on our car. It stuck so hard that she lost conscious when she hit, mistake was on her side, but still we were afraid. It was already late and if i miss bus I will not be able join job next day. So cousin said me to leave and he will manage the accident case. 

 Problem #5

I decided to stay in my friend's room. But at last moment the owner didn't allow me to share their room and he asked to take separate single room. So at that moment I was helpless because I reached place by midnight 3 o'clock and I have no place to stay. Then I called my friend and stayed in his home that night. After all these struggles next day morning, I joined company and done with my first day.

Looking forward for a great career..!!! :)

THE IDEA CARAVAN - Mr. Neil Harbisson

Franklin Templeton Investments partnered the TEDxGateway Mumbai in December 2012. The YouTube link for the video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw_-pzYEqV4#at=147.

I saw the videos at http://www.ftideacaravan.com/ and the video which inspired me the most was the video of Mr. Neil Harbisson. The video was titled as “Neil Harbisson couldn’t see colors. But his innovation has got perceiving colors to completely new level. Hear about his journey.” All other causes like cancer, women, water, education etc. was familiar topics which we have heard lot thus I decided to go for this video first. I watched it, loved it, then I watched other videos but as an old saying “First impression is the best impression” Mr. Neil’s video reminded as the best impressed video.

What are the things I loved in this video?
   First thing which I loved the most was the way he put things. He had this problem of color blindness, when he released he had this problem he never stopped there, he came forward and found a solution to it.
   Throughout his speech he kept people engaged, he spoke with humor so people don’t bored, that’s the other thing which I liked.
    The examples he gave, like seeing map without colors is complicated, flags of many countries looks similar in black and white etc. was funny and interesting.

What inspired me in this video?
    Mr. Neil himself is an inspiring person.
   He made a revolution by not seeing sound but by hearing sound, is that sounds interesting??? Yes!! He has invented a chip and web camera which when sees a color produces a unique sound from which he understands what color is that.
   And most importantly he solved the problem of racism. He sees colors not as we see but deeper than what normal humans see. He found there is white or black skin; it is only light and dark shade of Orange. Interesting!! Right??
    The most inspiring thing is that he never sells his device and makes money out of it. Rather he teaches people to create that instrument, he provides its software as Open Source thus anybody can work on it and improvises it. It really needs a generous heart to provide an invention as Open Source.
   He and his team dint stop hear. They have invented a motion sensor device which detects the motion around people. They have invented a camera that can be fixed in finger to read colors or images. They are also working on a device for making blind people see things.
  He concludes by saying, when people gets older our sensors power reduces, but when we merge technology and human senses, when we get old our senses improve, because technology grows day by day. It was the most unique idea with a greater vision, which inspired me a lot.

Thank you Franklin Templeton Investment for giving me an opportunity to write this blog.

First Goodies From #Twitter Contest

I started using Twitter just few days back. Today I participated in QuickHeal's Twitter contest and I won.:P I won T-shirt from QuickHeal. The contest was titled as #WithoutQuickHeal and the winner was based on the number of tweets per hour.

Twitter contests are really fun. It will make you really creative. We will be provided with 140 character space in Twitter and need to convey our message using that space. I love it and looking forward for more contests.

When I receive my goodies I will upload pics :P

My day @ Start-up City 2012, Silicon India

It was 22nd June 2013, myself and one of my college mate Satya, proved lucky enough to attended Start-Up City 2013 at Silicon India, Bangalore.

In fact we were clueless about the events included in Start-Up City 2013 .When we reached there we were provided with a route map to various auditorium. At each venue the topics discussed was different. Each of the topics was handled by expertise in that respective field. We decided to move to auditorium #1. The discussion there was about Internet, Mobile and E-Commerce. It was quite interesting and I gained some insights about the topic.

 After the speech got over we decided to move towards the stalls where Start-up companies were displayed. Once we reached there we realized that people standing next to us were top executives, people at stalls found us  new to this area and they never turned towards us. To hide our real identity (that we were jobless) and to make them talk to us, we decided to tell that we are about to start our company soon and we would like to hear some interesting ideas which will be helpful for it. And the idea turned-out fruitful people started exchanging their contacts with us.

I took this opportunity as a way to build up my career. I decided to collect as much contacts as possible so that I can find the best fit for my profile.

I was blessed enough to use this opportunity at its max. I got so many contacts. Now I feel more confident to start my dream company. And I really hope my dream will get converted to reality soon. 

My Experience @ Microsoft BizSpark

This is an old memory which I experience long back but it was my first such type of event. I was very excited to go there, it was like my dream to visit Microsoft campus. 

I know if I simply walk into Microsoft campus, even the security guards will not allow me inside, but that day every people in the reception was welcoming us with smile. Us I mean myself and my good friend went together, in fact he got my passed to entry for the event.

It was two days program and it gave me opportunity to learn many things. It was mainly about presentations about Start-up companies. First day the competition was between Start-ups in Bangalore and simultaneously the event was conducted in 10 different cities, winner from each city will be selected to present on the second day of event. 

I always had a dream of starting up my own company so going to such events helped me in learning many new things and also getting some ideas about business. I really loved the event. 

And the main thing was because of this event I became famous among my fellow mates. I was the only guy from my college who is attending such event and when I updated my status that I am going to Microsoft event people came flaunting behind me :P I had fun. I learned new things and that two days made a great change in my attitude and behavior  I learned how to network with people , met many new people and got their contact. That was a great day in my life.
