Shooting with Canon !

This is what I shot this weekend!I intended to sketch,but the weather was too good to sit inside a room.May be sketching can wait a little longer :)

The TV antena at the top remineded me of  my early days as school kid.Those days very few houshould used to had TV sets in our colony,and all the kids would sworm the house which would have the TV,on Sunday/Saturday evening to watch Bikram Baitaal or Spiderman. Good old Doordarshan days!

Urggghh..I Wanted It Sexy !

I wanted to sketch a nude in a sexy pose.Beautiful and raunchy.Instead it turned out to be a sad looking miserable face :( .That's the difference between a greenhorn and an expert.I wish I had more control on my hands.Anyway,it was long time since I picked up the pencil.Hope to be little regular in my effort, now onward.

Learning to shoot!

My latest adventure!Since guitar practise was getting a little drab,I picked my Cannon to shoot some random pictures.Like Guitar , you need a lot of practise and experimentation to learn. I am like an infant trying to crawl! Yet,the camera has began to make sense to me. Here's a few sample from my stable :)

The Road Ahead

It has been raining job interviews for me this spring,monsoon style!Well almost,at least the calls from recruiters makes me believe that.Not one interview with any of the prospective employers,only with recruiters.Yet it makes me feel at least someone is aware of my online CV or my Linked in profile.

Tomorrow ,going to have face to face interview with head of economics and planning team of an Oil company.The interview is scheduled in a bar!Just hoping that the guy gets drunk and offers me the job :) no questions asked,how good is that.....!

By the way,I passed my MA Economics exam.What next?May be CFA.But after I switch my job and my son grows a little old,old enough not to distract.Till then just day dreaming,eyes wide open.

Breaking free from corporate slavery

I want a new ' job'.Have been thinking about it since along time.But I don't want a one more new corporate job.I think I had enough of corporate jobs.Now I want to be my own boss.No slavery anymore.I dont want others to write my appraisal or beg for few nickles to people whom I deem not superior than me.

I want a life where I can plan my own holidays.A life where there are no 'Monday Blues' or TGIF.I want every day to be as pleasant as weekends.A life where I can plan a vacation for a month or two every year in different location.A life where I can spend time with my parents as long as I want to.A life where I dont have to earn a salary,instead the money comes from what I love doing.A life when I decide when do I need to wake up and when do I need to go to bed.

I like my present job.But it is not what I would like to do forever.It is nice,pays well,well almost!But imagine ,what it would be to be your own boss and may be employee others to work for you,instead of you working for others.Every time I think over it,it bring me immense joy.

So the only question for me is ,what is it that I have that others can find valuable.In other words what do I do be my own boss?And that is the million dollar question haunting me.

Life at Snail's Pace

It looks like looong time.Was i dead or what?I wonder!Nope :) I am alright,sound and kicking.Had nothing worthwhile to add here.Was some what unusually busy in work and some non-work.Anyway,the new year is already a month old now.I am glad,I am following on my resolution,not the new year resolutions.

Have been practising on and off on my guitar.Still light years away from playing anything sensible.For the time being its just that good old boring scales and chords change practise.At time I feel like breaking the Guitar into million pieces from the frustration out of the failure to improve.But soon realise I cannot afford a single penny more to lose.And that keeps me sane,though irritated.

May be few more months and then my neighbours wont feel like hitting me.Who knows they might like the sound of strumming and picking!Possibilities are endless,as I say to myself.But I will be traveling again and my practise will be interrupted again.Second time in a last few months,for a month.Sigh!

I had nothing better to do on last weekend.So out of bordom decide to put myself on Youtube.Its boring nerdy stuff.But if it interest you,here's the link .
