Each of us has a hidden place
Somewhere deep within ourselves;
A place where we go to get away,
To think things through,
To be alone, to be ourseleves.
This unique place, where we confront our deepest feelings,
Becomes a storehouse of all our hopes,
All our needs, all our dreams,
And even our unspoken fears.
It encompasses the essesnce of who we are and what we want to be.
But now and then, whether by chance or design,
Someone discovers a way into that place we thought was ours alone.
And we allow that person to see,to feel and to share
All the reason, all the uncertainty
And all the emotion we've stored up there.
That person adds new perspective to our hidden realm,
Then quietly settles down in his own corner of our special place,
Where a bit of himself will stay forever.
And we call that person a FRIEND................
Now let me tell you my friends who gave me supprot when I was down and motivated me
to do what I wanted to do.
In my schooling days Shailendra Pratap Singh and Pankaj Chaturvedi used to be my close friend, but I don't have any where abouts regarding him. I wish him a greate future. Then in Hardoi, where all my schooling got completed, I have many friends, who are more like a family than friends. Pankaj has joined Air Force and these days he is in Chennai to attend the commando training for one month. Pragati Srivastava was the girl who was close to me and she was a good friend of mine.
My closest friend is Sanjay Kumar Tiwari who is working
in BFL Software in Banglore. Then there are friends like Raju Panjwani, Manoj Kumar Tripathi, Prashant Pachouri, Nishant Garg,
Vishal Gupta, Pushpa Raj Singh. Alok Tandon, Rohit Sinha, Peeyush Kaushik who gave me morale to finish my graduation.
In my first company Deltatec Solutions Ltd. where I worked for near 14 months, I came to know many people
but the people who had an impact over me are Mr. Balaji Jagannathan, who was my Project Manager there(and
fortuantely he was there in Polaris also to support me), then Mr. Sowmyan Naranyan was my senior there and
in Polaris he was my Project Leader. My colleague Balaji Venkatraman was a nice person and very supportive.
Then I had Dias Thomas, Aarthy, Gayathri who were close to me during my tenure there.I had a dear sister there in Deltatec. Her name is Geetha and she is very bright and supportive. These days she is in Hexaware Systems in Chennai itself.
While I was in Chennai I came across many people to whom I befriended,
and Mr. Pavan Bhatnagar and Anand Shirodkar were the among the closest to me.Anand is in States now.
Then I was introduced into Polaris Software Lab with the help of Mr. Balaji Jagannathan, who was already leading a team in there. He was again very helpful to me there also. While I was in Polaris Software in Chennai, the atmosphere was totally changed than that was in my previous
company, Deltatec Solutions Ltd. There I was close to Pradeep Kumar, Sriram, Mr. Siva Kumar, Ramesh Kumar, Vasu, Sasi, Antony, Prem, Chokes, Aparna, Venkat Reddy, Sharada, Dhanalakshmi and more as there
were so many nice persons that I can not write here. But I forgot to mention Goovindh, whom I treated like my younger brother and who stood beside me whenever I needed him most, I am including his name after I forgot.
Now I am in Calcutta, a comapny called eForce Inc. Basically the company is a US based company having the synergy of both the US culture as well as Indian culture. Here I have few very close friends. One is Narveer Singh and another Kamal Raj.
Narveer is from Haryana and an Engineer from REC Jaipur. Kamal is from Thanjvur,
a place in Tamil Nadu. Both of them came to attend my marriage in worse conditions and co-incidently both of them are my room mates too. Then I have
Krishna Kadiyala, Sateesh, Indroneel Ghosh also very close to me and are very helping in nature. Mr. Amitava Maulik, our director, is very nice and understanding person. He is very much sincere and soft speaking too. I have Mr. Mayank Agarwaal also as my neighbour, who is also helping me in getting settled over in Calcutta after marriage.
Now since then Internet has become popular in India, I have got few vitual friends also. Among them Poonam Bhargava is the the most consistent in having contacts, and she is one among to motivate me. Then I have Mr. Kuldeep Narayan, who is studying in IIT Kanpur(B.Tech. Mech), and he is my college alumni too coincidently.
So those are the people who influenced me a lot in the life. Then my best frineds are my
family members to whom I owe so much.
