New Year - Powered By Intellect & Driven By Values

Any guesses for the title I put for this post????????????

Anyways, April 7th, 2008 was Telugu New Year called as UGADI ( Starting of an era ) which is a very auspicious day for us(Andhrites). The same day was new year in Karnataka ( called as YUGADI ) and Maharastra ( called as GUDI PADWA ). Ugadi is in my most favourite festivals list and I consider it as a very good and important day. And the name of this year is called as "SARVADHARI". This year calendar reckons dates based on Salivahana ( a legendary king ) era.

The first day of the year begins with ritual showers, prayers and then eating of specific mixture of Neem buds, Raw Mango, Tamarind juice, Green chilli, Jaggery and Salt. All these symbolizes that life is mixture of different experiences(sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise), which should be accepted together.

So this completes the first portion of the post title ( New Year ).

Coming to the second portion(Powered by Intellect & Driven by values), this is the caption for one of the Indian software companies, INFOSYS. Well hoping that you guessed it right by now, I have joined Infosys on the same new year day, April 7th. This was a co-incidence and I am happy for that. I just wanted to share this news with all of my blogger friends. I would be soon starting the work.

You all have a good one.

Hi Friend,
May I request, if it is not too much of a burden to you, to please subscribe to my Feedburner Feeds either through email or to my RSS Feed Reader. You can find them at the upper portion of my sidebars at all my blogs. This will save you the time of going over to my blogs to find out if I have made a new posting. The FeedBurner will automatically transmit, either through email or Feed Reader (whichever you choose), any new post that I make. This will facilitate linkages between us. I will do the same for you if you have your own feeds, but if you still don't have I will still visit your blog as often as I could. Just inform me via email or through your comment in any of my blogs that you have already enrolled in any of my feeds so that I can reciprocate your gesture. I will appreciate it very much if you could do this as it will definitely boost ranking for my blogs. Thank you very much for your usual kind cooperation and patronage of my blogs. God bless you and your loved ones always.

@m.flowerr
oops....complete miscommunication. Hey, I dont need translation. I need kannada original lyrics only, but in english to read and sing like "sihi gaali sihi gaali sahi haakide manasinali..."(as i donno kannada script). You know what I mean?. If this looks tougher to you leave it, no probs. Dont take tension..))

Jaggu said...
