Timepass Person(TPP). Made in India

Lets see how the society and people around us influence a normal person to become the timepass person(TPP). One small kutti story..

Born to a well settled family, what do u expect the timepass baby does. He feels super lazy to ambulate from one place to another. Finally his parents forcefully give him a cart to walk, and he walks. During the night, he has to go all the way to bathroom to pee, Aaram se he prefers his bed and huggies to bathroom. During school days, while all his friends prefer outdoor games and physical exertion, he prefers POGO TV, Chutti TV, Animax, Pokeman etc. Now a graduation time in his life, he doesn't know which stream he has to follow... 2 Missed calls to his friends and he follows them to college and selects the same bench as them. His creativity and imagination blossoms during those lullaby sessions of his professor. His chalta hai approach has gets him a job through his Training and placement department, while most of his buddies queue before US embassies.

Now to the most important part of choosing his life partner. He doesn't timepass with this part of his life. He know how to take his life forward.

choice 1:
His wife would have been a lawyer or a very social person, who cares for the welfare of the people. In future she could well become the President of the country. TPP gets his chance to accompany in her morning walks at Mughal gardens, go on world tours when she's on offical trips, meet other TPP First gentlemen( similar to First ladies).

Next option,love affair with his college girl who has entrepreneurial ideas and good at management. They could still start a company or get placed together in a company. She could one day become a CEO some company and get awards for powerful businesswoman of the year. He could still be happy to do work from home and be the man behind the great woman( like a Tamil verse.. behind every male's success, there's female).If he had studied English, he could write a book about his life/love story and make it become a best seller. He can give inspirational talks in IIMs and other best colleges like Lovely Professional University.

If his father is either in Cinema, politics, Music , then he's bound to have a future in that field. In cinema, his father should turn producer and launch him as a hero, then start fan clubs and sow the foot steps for politics. Politics leaves him as the legal heir of the party of his father. He becomes a gr8 leader and goes to parliament to either shout n walk out or sleep undisturbed by the proceedings. Music gives him chances to explore the old works of his father, remix them, loot tunes from foreign artists and give a Desi touch to it. If his wife is in his field and has a good market even after doing heroine's sister, heroine, sister, aunt, mother, grandma roles, then he can take up a role as her manager and counter all the gossips that go rounds in media. If a he's a celebrity he can update his status in Facebook and twitter through Aircel pocket internet like Dhoni.

Hence being a TPP is very serious business. Choosing his/her better half comes after a lotta thought. Being a TPP, you are entitled to think freely, liberally and hence mind becomes devils workshop. Often things get tapered at these workshops. Being a TPP has become a Social Status, especially during holidays, a normal person is bantered if people have you are not in timepass tag. The increase in timepassing people with facebook quizzes and gtalk. No wonder if some people from All India Timepass Association go on air in CNN-IBN and ask Finance minister for tax concession for those doing timepass.(As politicians do more timepass than us, they can understand our feelings better.)

PS: Head of Nofeelings Youth Association ( Varuthapadatha Vaaliba Sanga Thalivar) Kaipulla has put forth the claim for induction of "timepass" in english dictionary. This year,It is the most frequently used word, even beating JAI HO!!!

New chapter begins

After a long hibernation, here comes my first post after my vacation. My life at NITT has come to an end. Now I'm a provisional Engineering graduate. I'm joining Verizon Data services India Pvt Limited at Chennai(The best and only option I'd).Atleast i'm happy to get this job after weeks of frustration and tension, i've get a joining date.

There were so many times where i'd asked this question during all these days of distress, " Why me always..GOD". Now when i'm able to see some light at the end of tunnel and many of friends still in darkness, i think, "GOD has chosen me for some reason".
Like A.R.Rahman sir said," There are two genius( M.S.Viswanathan and Ilayaraaja ) sitting with me on the stage, I think GOD has chosen me to get the award on their behalf." How true it is. We dont ask that question when we are happy and chose to ask it during distress.

@ my juniors
The worst of recession cloud has passed. you can follow the Obama mantra-HOPEYou will pass these testing times where uncertain future beckons your instincts. I'll miss your presence, those nakkals,nayyandi during Pragyans,NITTfest,Sensors. I'll miss ur comments on my facebook quizzes and status updates.

@fellow fresh corporate workers
End of an ordeal at NITT and new corporate world calling us with both hands. We still don't know if we are worth of the Fat compensation packages given to us. Morally we need to some professional ethics and be true to conscience. Like Dr.ManMohan's team, have a 100 day agenda and accountability criteria.

@US/UK/GERMAN/Swiss univ studs
Dont get overboard with your Indian image and get thrashed by natives for racial abuse. Get educated and come back to India and serve these Indian people. I know people who hate(hate max) India and dont wanna return to the so called stupid,unhealthy,unorganised place. You(ppl who hate) are cowards and hypocrites who wanna run away from the problems rather than facing them.

@successful people
Best thing abt successful people is they share their success. Helping a friend in need is the pinnacle of success. After all a friend's friend is our friend too.. (from Nadodigal)

Stay hungry..Stay foolish..god speed!!! :D :D
