My first iPhone!

It’s here! I purchased my first iPhone, a 16 GB, 3GS, last month over eBay US. Thanks to Rohini and Shashank bhaia for helping me with the logistics. 🙂

 

Tonight is the night!

boats

We shall row it, on and on.

It’s 3 am and folks at MediaRedefined are working. A couple of them are out to get some food. No we’re not at Kargil but at our cozy office in Vaishali. Warm jackets, half a dozen notebooks, A4 sheets, music, foot on table and redness in most eyes – guys are striving hard to get the project ready for the release.

A dozen pet bottles, empty packs of wafers died out midway before they reached the trash can in the kitchen. It’s chaos! But just as I believe, the best of the works one can ever do, is done under chaos. No ease or peace can get you productivity as compared to the one achieved when the deadlines make a whistling sound in your ears and pass by.

Tonight is one such night. Yesterday was another one. May be I shall talk about it later sometime.

We’ve read, heard and said countless number of times that life is tough. Yes it is, but there is a toughness you might just love to see in your team. No, this was not to prove that we have one of the toughest teams in the world at work. But yes, there aren’t many I have seen like this before!

It’s been more than 12 hours since folks haven’t moved their asses off the chairs which I feel have lived their age. It’s time to get new chairs for the office. Before that, we need a new office in the first place.

Amongst a dozen people I answered and justified (or atleast, tried to) my choice of being a businessman is that you see and mould things in your own good way and not just wait for them to happen. I know it’s easier said than done but I still love the fact. I am sure you getting it. Did I mention by now that I ain’t high? Trust me, if at all I am, it’s due to the lack of sleep and nothing else.

Way to go!

My first car

Today, I drove back home, a Black Santro GLS. My first car!

07072009(006) 07072009(001)

Took it to the Greater Noida Expressway and I could recall the time, 4 years ago, when I was on the same road looking out for a college. A lot has changed since.

There is a long road ahead. I have just upturned the first few stones.
