You are blessed
with love & care
you are filled
with knowledge so rare

you are the inspiration
for the life I chose
every time I fumbled
with your guidance I rose

you've been a teacher
that i truly admire
in so many ways
you constantly inspire

today, i am a teacher
you are the role model
all respect i get
you deserve it all

thanks for moulding me
the best for life
thanks for that lesson
"problems are oportunities"

thanks for unlocking my "self"
I never saw it before
today i am a different me
all credits to you

Bala sir, on your birthday
i just wished to tell you
what you mean to me
but i fall short of words
as respect fills my heart

Its just three days that i left hyderabad and i already start to miss it. The heat here is testing me. though we sit in an AC room all the day, the moment we come out, it hurts and as the day ends, it really really is bad given the power cuts.

but today, i have got something positive to note. May be that being here for three days, i am able to take in the system and get adjusted, but there are somethings that i really like about this city. let me tell you first the journey that made me positive.

today's session started well. It was a case study discussion (my all-time favorite) on Recruitment. At the end of the session, I got compliments for my decision making skills. Teachers with good years of experience came to me and said that they have learnt from me today. This is a real booster and a great way to start the day. The rest of the session today, i am happy about.

After the session, we went out shopping and this is when i have the first positive point about the city.
  • its well structured
  • very organized traffic
While shopping, we went to Pothy's....one of the best silk emporium in the South. I got a beautiful cotton saree there. then happened something that I never knew before.
  • they gift each of the customer with a plant. these plants are not any other fancy plant. they were useful ones. I got a gooseberry plant and some flower plant(medicinal).
Thats a great move towards encouraging the customers to GO GREEN. I decided that from now on, i will try and give plants as gifts on certain occasions.

Chalo, i finally started to like this city. Hope i take enough experiences to treasure for a life time from coimbatore.

hope many more to come...bye for now.


Thank God I could have a good sleep last night. The second day, started well with interesting lecture, but ended the worst with the most boring lecture. But the discussions and debates were interesting.

Coimbatore weather is OK types, but about the heat, it is better than Hyderabad. But the power cut makes it worse. Every alternate hour there is a powercut. Thanks to the college management, atleast they have a generator and gave us an AC room.

In the last post, I was to tell you about the story of the accommodation here. Its the worst part of my coimbatore trip.

Its a typical girls hostel where you have a demon-like warden and cat-like students. One yells and the others fear. I think none of them can speak when she is around. they literally become dumb. what they, i also get dumb looking at her, she is like that. None can help.

Crossing her, i entered the room. My God i was dumbstruck. its 12x10 room where 4 of us were expected to live. My God, i couldnt take it at all. when you go to the mess, the demon stands at the entrance making sure that none is talking or wasting food. Does she not know by now that none can talk when she is around...whatever..!!! the silly part is that, you are expected to carry the plate and the glass while you go to take food. It was literally like the prisoners in the jail....and yeah, we were not anything less than that.

top of all, its the timings. the breakfast is at 7.00am when i dont even wake up. lunch is anyways at the college so no worries...and the dinner is at 7.00pm when i dont even feel hungry. and past this time..no food u would get...!! only i know how am i surviving here....coz' i have no other option.

but one thing is that i atleast got an experience of a typical girls' hostel.

Now i realize how wonderul was my college hostel during my MBA...!!!

lots later...bye for now :)

All the while I was so excited for this trip, a 15 day training program at Coimbatore. More than the training what excited me was that i am alone again. No husband no parents no one who knows me would be around. It was "MY" life once again.

But it all changed the moment I got down the bus in Coimbatore. I could find no one speaking a language common to me. That was the first time i experienced the REAL Tamil Nadu which my North Indian friends were always talking about. I was trying to ask where the bus stop is or where i could get an auto rickshaw...and they were all clue less about what i was asking or i was about what they were saying.

Amidst such confusion, something familiar I found. The sunrise :) behind the tall green coconut trees, the sun mightily rose and shone his rays upon bringing a smile on my face.

Then i found one stout man busy with his morning walk and I asked him. thank him, he knew english and guided me right but the real problem started then, the auto wala couldnt understand english and he dint know where the place was. but somehow he gt me to the accommodation i was allotted.

The accommodation is another story, look for my next post to read about it.

The program went well and i returned back started blogging...now thats all for the day. I am tooo tired that i cant tell you the story of the day...so next post..till then.happy reading..happy blogging...!!!
