First day in Nokia

Posted by Bala on May 17, 2007

After very long journey back from the trip, I woke up at 08:00 and made the things ready for my joining formalities in Nokia. Started from home with my cousin in car to the office, I reached office at 10:00. Balaji who is my project mate in Wipro was already waiting for me there. At 10:30 we had formal introduction with HR Manager. After filling up all the formality documents, we were taken to our Project Manager who took us around to give intro to my new colleagues. After few mins, he shown us our places and for the whole day we were sitting idle because we don’t have username and password to logon to the PC 🙂 We roamed the entire building to get all the required information like where to get free coffees, stationery items 🙂 and we got the information about transport facilities. We started back to home sharply at 05:30 by company cabs.

Trip to Gokarna, Murudeshwar and Kollur

Posted by Bala on May 16, 2007

This trip with my cousin and his friends was planned a month ago. Initially we decided to go for Gokarna and Goa (if possible). But due to some problems we decided not to go for Goa, as Goa is not a place to be seen in a single day. We started bit late on Friday night, and reached Gokarna in the morning around 10:00. Gokarna beach is a really nice place to visit. It has 4 beaches, and we visited Om Beach. Om Beach is really nice. I never seen a ocean standing on a high hill. It was such good sight seeing. We played in the beach sand and enjoyed the time over there. From there we started around 05:00 to Murudeshwar and reached there by 09:00, we took a cottage near to Beach and it was amazing view of the sea. The sea on three sides surrounds the temple towering on the small hill called Kanduka Giri. Recently a Lord Shiva idol erected beside the temple. The idol towers 123 feet into the sky and is the tallest Shiva idol in the world. We went for a boating inside the sea. In the half way mid, the boat’s motor got switched off and we started shouting, every one get down and start pushing the boat 😀 From there we started to Kollur Mookambika temple. From there we started to Bangalore and reached by morning 05:00. Overall its a nice trip.

Last Day in Wipro

Posted by Bala on May 11, 2007

Today is my Last day in Wipro. Came to EC at 08:30 and waited for Balaji to come. Met all my old project mates and had a leaving presentation. Me and Balaji left to Sigma Building for the final settlement at 11:00 AM. By the time we reach there, its lunch time from them. So we gave our separation application and waited for them to come back. The settlement was made after lunch. Me and my exiting colleagues left the Sigma building at 05:30 and reached home by 06:30.

Few things which surprised me in the past 1 year and 11 months in Wipro.

1. I never missed by Bus in the morning after knowing the exact route of the Bus. I missed twice before that. That shows how punctual I am 🙂

2. I never forgot to take my Wipro Badge with me. That shows my memory power 🙂


3. My bus while returning to home never crossed the Trinity signal without stopping there.

Anyhow, 1 year and 11 months Life in wipro comes to an end by today.

Looking for a challenging job ahead.
