happy birthday…FIGHTER!!

August 28, 2004

Hi all…
flashback…2003 april…who would have thought we would be all over the places in india in 2004 august….chennai…hyderabad…gurgaon …ghaziabad…”the karmabhoomi” for the guys in our group…eveybody was so unsure at that time…we were in true sense..”clueless”….popat seem to had the best positions…having secured call from five IIM`s he was flying…but he was nt complacent…vineet had already made ICFAI his destiny…i was not sure…pramod as usual..optimistically pessimistic….siddarth…was..toying with entrepreneurship…and i was casual…thinking of next year CAT as my destiny….suddenly….after engineering…..popat goes to BLORE…vineet HYD…and three of us remain….again..i was not so disturbed as i was preparing for CAT..but sid and pramod….they were trying hard….and again one fine day..sid..out of the blues landed at PCQUEST…i landed up at the place where i first refused to go…ICFAI…which i thought was the best thing i could have done at that time….(forget about WIPRO)…but one guy remained…he still fought…we all were equipped financially…but he was not…he still managed to fight against all odds…he just refused to let go…he seem to have lost control of his life…yet he was in control..evrybody had something to do…he only could give tests and not qualify….but did he lose hope….did he ran away to gorakhpur….???how he managed and pacified and answered his parents who were long anticipating for four years…that their son will bring glory…only god and he knows….and finally god had to bend befor his patience…his perseverance….sid…keeps talking about persevarance….here is theliving example…between us….grit….willpower…mental stability/…..i dont know how many words here will fit…..he is earning…..now….i could have sensed what he must have felt on 11th july( i guess thatwas the date he got the job)..when he landed up with the job….sigh of satisfaction…..but yet he wants more….because tell u what he is a winner…..and mind u..he is one of those…who would make a paradigm shift one day..
i remember everybody including me…sid,…and popat…all the time we were giving advices to him…common dialogue of sid..”expand your horizon….learn more technologies…more software..more languages..”…or the classic one…lets start a enterpreneur venture…!…but dont you thonk we could say…because we were settled…sympathizing we did..empathizing we did not…..anyways…gone are those days…i always have felt that…when pramod wasnt getting the job..that is ur heredity that matters or is it the talent you possess….okay we have dhirubhai ambani…but how many are dhirubhai from one billion…..i had the experience of people who had “jack”…getting job at hughes…in five minutes…when normal interviews were easily extending 1 and ahalf hours….do people who are “born with a silver spoon” still win over those who possess talent….is moolah..everything……??we have asses up at the top in many companies.,..just due to the glib talkin….aditya….smooth operator….got the job at hughes…i dont know where i`m taking this letter..but one thing we must all do…we should salute the person who has seen it all…and still he is going on….guys..why look for source of inspiration elsewhere…when we have a gem of a friend….in the end i just want to wish pramod…a very happy bday..on 5th sep..his best ever!!
