Disappeared off the Face of the Earth?

A lot of people must be thinking that I've disappeared off the face of the earth, since I've not updated my blog in such a long time.  Will try to update more often from now on (hopefully).

There's a lot of stuff that has happened in the past two months... a short summary follows:
  • I am working at the TCS Insurance Solutions Centre at Vadapalani, Chennai, and am in Deployment HR.  My role is Associate Engagement.
  • My address in Chennai is F1, Asha Vignesh Apartments, New No. 415, MTH Road, Near Ambattur O.T., Ambattur, Chennai - 53.
  • My cell number is +91 98418 75682.
  • My first purchase with my first salary was a copy of Watchmen, and the second was a Batman Begins toy.  These were bought from Landmark in Spencer's Plaza, Chennai.
  • Landmark has a big collection of imported comics, and though they're very expensive (Watchmen was Rs. 738.75), I'm planning to buy some from time to time.  Next on the list is Crisis on Infinite Earths.
  • A couple of weeks after being posted in Chennai, Varun and my parents visited me here.  After that, I got to go home twice — one during a recruitment drive, and the second on the extended weekend recently (August 15).
  • Movies watched recently (not many) include: Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Anniyan, Cybertracker 2, Batman Begins and The Devil's Rejects.

Today is the TCS ISC Town Hall (a big event for our centre, which we've been working on for quite some time now.  Been staying back late in the office for the past few days.  Hopefully I will get a bit more free time after this.

Since I don't have access to personal mails in the office, I have been very irregular in checking my Gmail account.  I'm planning to get a laptop with Internet connection soon, which should simplify things.

More stuff later...

Hmmmm... so how are you finding Chennai? Landmark is one of my fav hangouts. I agree it is quite expensive. But we have don't have many expensive habits do we ;) ?

About long hours, it is true of any IT company. Likely to be so for a long time I guess.

BTW, I nearly jumped off my seat when I saw I had already commented to this post. Da, Panicker if you are reading this, oru swantham stylil AP enno Panicker enno sign off cheythoodae. Arun R namukku vitteke ;)
