College finished on 31st may, 2009...after that... we were officially free from college life..[Though in last sem, we were doing industrial training so. our college life ended with end of 7th sem]
After that...Next thing which v were awaiting of, was our joining in respective companies...we were like...Ok...1 month is a relaxing period for us. After that ..busy to hona hi hai...koi nhi...abhi timepas kro..
Initially… it was fine...we were visiting places. having fun. Those kinds of things. which we were not able to do coz of exams in every alternate month..
Then...as second month after college, came to an end… things started getting worse...we were not enjoying d freedom...
The usual conversation that used to follow us around everywhere goes like this-
smbody- 'beta,ajkal kya kar re ho..'
me-[in pre-rehearsed tone]-'uncleji/aunty ji..kuch nhi..bs joining ki wait kr re hai' [ followed wid a forceful smile]
smbody- 'oohk..kidr lgi hai job waise..' [dey used to presume dt i was unable to get myself a job till now..huh!]
me- 'tcs me...[on getting puzzled looks smtimes]..tata consultancy services'
smbody- 'acha..achi company hai..hmm...package kya de re hai'
me- 'abhi to fresher ko jyda nhi dete..so 3.15lkah..'[again,followed wid a weak smile]
smbody- 'bs 3.15...govt.college se krne ke bad bhi...'
me-'hhmm... kya kr sakte hai..bs joining de dein..' :(
That's y at d end...I stopped meeting ppl only...Wen I was sick n tired of d same old conversation..
In last 3 months…every day was full of frustation..irritation..hopelessness..[ I already registered myself in every possible naukri site… which boldly proclaims that within a day or two,you will be getting calls from reputed companies..though..what actually are dose reputed companies..everybody knws...bpos...even they used to flatly refuse ppl wid engineering degree. as if v r criminals] ..days passed by doing nothing..spending time at every social networking site possible. following tcs orkut community religiously for every second update/rumour..
My day schedule was fixed.. for every day of d week..of month..
used to get up at 11-11:30..followed by breakfast n newspaper..then bath...then..afternoon nap..then lunch at 4-4:30..followed by time pass tv..then..internet surfing..phone calls...tea...fruits...tv..internet...dinner at 10:30-11...again Internet/novel..n end d day at 2am...
seriously... It was hell!!!
joining was not coming..dey were not giving any probable dates..no contacts to get job elsewhere..market for freshers was not opening coz of recession..no walk ins..it was frustration to d core!!
each day i used to think...y mee? y me?? :-/
