Saumendra Swain
You respect them, You respect the values and the people you are with. Things goes fine when you are in favour and suddenly it seems the world is not enough .....

So be prepare and try to avoid the values you learn in the school and from parents...thats what Mumbai life prefers. The hell out of anything.

Something is going on

Saumendra Swain
Somethings going on, I don't know what I did, But it worked out fine again, Got you in my path, It sounds , It's gonna be alright again.

I found out the best i am searchin, I found out ron auk in the path to destiny. Who cares about us anyway?
Something's going on......I dont want this to die
Dont want to ever forget this,
To hurry you would be a crime
Lets take our time.


At last I got to Se "SHOLEY" in the Big Screen at IMAX Vadala. Its worth watching. During the show it seems all were in a compitition to spoke up the dialogues...everyone njoying with muttering the dialogues.... This is the only film I guess People remember each and Every character even the Horse name "Dhano" and access to dialogues.

Every one is doing it.

Saumendra Swain
Athens Olympics is on and with a Rajyavardhan Rathore's silver medal Indian name added to the medal list. Have you ever been to a concert and someone starts to applaud and very soon everyone is doing it. Try it yourself. Next time you are at a recital or something wait till the end
and initiate the applause yourself. It is amazing when everyone follows you. One at a time at first but then is escalates.Why do people bet on the favourites of a horse race day in day out often losing vast sums of money? It is because we feel that we are safe if "everyone is doing it".

Woke up at 6.45am while alarm set for 7.16am. Browse through the Times of India, while listning to Radio City FM music, the weather is calm and quite with blured sunlight and fresh air. After 15 days I wrote my Diary with pen, really sad to be irregular in my diary writing habbits after i switched over to this online diary. Had my bath and get some of my dress ironed. had breakfast in Shivum accompanied by Sohel,Narendra and Praveen.

Why people feel restless in there workplace even if they dont have to work. It just the mind which sets and tunes the way we think. But in TYPEi People enjoy much more, with a open culture and full Trancperency in it. Playing Games wether it was Table tennis or Network games like QUAKE 3, everyone took part with enthusiasm while achiving the Project Deadlines.

Office Hour:
Reach office at 10.40 (late) , Quickly trace out the privious days samlearning site New subject upload problem. I had to install the Docent LMS server in a win2000 machine for which Ronnie recomends me that I will use Aichin's machine. Got the Doccent LMS Server CD from Trptti only after she realised that its there with her in the Draw...hmmmm.Took Win2000 Installation CD from Nikhil and after getting permission from HAkim to format and Install Win2000, done it. Now need SQL server which I have to wait for tomorrow when Ashish or Mustali will bring the Installer.There is still some of the network access problem arrising by which ID'd and the Tech-writers are unable to share the files. Ajay and Vinayak trying hard to get it done. Played TT match today after a long Gap and njoyed it.At 9pm done the Gym workout with Kabir.

Enemy at tnhe gates.

Saumendra Swain
Fortunate to see the movie "ENEMY at the GATES" in my PC.


The true story about Vassili Zaitsev, a Russian sniper credited with over 140 kills during the Battle of Stalingrad, as documented in the 1973 book, Enemy at the Gates, by William Craig (although the book is not credited in the film, the official site does mention it). The Battle of Stalingrad was one of Nazi Germany's biggest failures, losing over 250,000 soldiers in fatalities, with another 100,000 other soldiers captured. The movie is awesome ..with excellent ..cinematogrphy,

Re Shuffling..... TYPEi Team.

Saumendra Swain
Its monday and every one on there fresh mood of work. Heavy rains make some of the team members absent in the office. Suddenly some activities on the second floor paced upp and everyone seems to be in motion. Slowly everything gets clear... that reshuffling of Learn Team started and everyone in downstairs shiffted to the second Floor. Except the Marketing team Area everyones setup moved. I shiffted to join the cubical of Zubin and Ashish. Trptti and Hakim shifted to the new cubical. Honestly I was hurt leaving the place and also a great humouristic companion. The cubical will always be in memory for the Jokes,the Humour, the Songs I play, and I learnt a lot , get inspired and even get a very good friend. The process of shiffting runs atleast for one -two hour. The Second floor now looks crowded and it got a active life with the DJ's like Viren and Irfan. Tridib,Narendra,Aliasgar,Raj,Sutapa,Aichin,Viren,Susi,Ellizabeth,
Rupali,Kusum,Sameer and Chandu all in the second floor..the Whole TYPEi team.Huraaayyyyyyy There is a happiness in the air throughout.

My AndersonDAvis Project Started while completing the ZDnetIndia Log Analysis for the month of July 2004,and forwarded the reports to Ronnie.

Mr. Suresh Ramakrishnan asked me in doubt wether i shiftted permanetly or not? coz I guess he must be indicating the Songs I play while in my earlier Cubical.

Power cut .. JDM

Saumendra Swain
I still not finished the novel " Maneater of Jassapur" but could see some of the storyline streaming through my dreams. I could she the mesh of Jungle,the tigress and the hunters creating a roar screen of tales like it happens in this rare novel.

Yesterday was a bit relaxing day in JDM not everyone wants it but everyone had to relax as a series of Power cuts happening through-out the day. The Servers were down and Ronnie,Praveen,Ajay..were trying there best to avoid ... come on yaar sometimes all the staff needs some time to relax...

Finally 5.15pm is declared as the office off time when all the servers will be down , the news spread like a wild fire , everyone quited there respective seat ..by 5.15 rarely we could find anyone near the office except out Tech team. So most of us jumped to the Table tennis base and played lots of matches till we get the green signal from Ajay to start the server.

Aye kash ke hum..

Saumendra Swain
Contrast colors do look cool with the other supplement color. Thats right to the human thoughts too. The past week of mental toughness get relax a little.. some how manage to put the thoughts out of my head .Its true when you share joy it increases many fold and when you share sorrow it decreses many fold. Thanx to my well listner friend to give this advice.


The weekend goes with three DVD films I had with me . The Lawrence of Arabia, The Great Escape and The Guns of Navarone. Three classics and I liked the Picturisation/screenplay of The Lawrence of Arabia most.The photography is so perfectly adapted to the wide screen that it couldn't possibly make sense on television. Any network executive who screens this film has committed a crime. I'm amazed how real everything looks: almost every shot is so convincing one thinks it couldn't possibly have been planned, yet so perfect, it must have been. -But once I begin to praise the elements of the film one by one I will never stop.
