Category: Best of Today!

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

#4:Got a smile :)

I know,I keep bringing instances of my workplace 😛 ,however what happened today was just 5 minutes after I left my workplace today late in evening.A sudden thrust of humid air when I come out of office is usual in Chennai, however lift not working was something that happened for the first time.Big deal! I told myself and started walking down the stairs.When I was on the second floor stairs,as I was walking down with a speed,I crossed someone moving very slow,without caring who was there.But then,the moment I was already at first floor,I realized I overlooked something which I should have not.Yes that someone moving slow was a lame lady with polio calipers.And I realized there was nobody with her.I immediately turned back and reached where she was and asked if she needs any help,she looked at me and smiled…said she was waiting for her friend and that she will manage.As I was about to insist again,her friend came,and I smiled back at them and moved on.

And it was not my smile I am talking about,I am herein referring to smile from that lady.Yes it was a smile from a person in return of help someone stranger to her,offered.Though I could not really give her any assistance in walking down the stairs,she genuinely gave me a genuine smile,worth never forgetting and yes with no doubt made itself the “Best of Today!” for me… 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

I was still not cured of my Monday fever and just day dreaming about a long holiday in Switzerland… 😛  when I got a SMS…

*CITIALERT*Your A/C XXXXXXXXXXXX has been credited with salary of……………………………….

Yes,its dot dot….because I have to keep this confidential according to company policies…. 😉

Salary-Day 🙂 on Mon-Day….  🙂

And for today it was the “Best of Today!” 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

I was indoors the whole day and nobody in room to interact too,what could have happened that I would have identified as ‘Best of Today!’

But then something happened,I had submitted my blog at…whose punchline is “Join the largest and most active community of Indian Bloggers..Indians by birth. Bloggers by choice”

And they have,Submission Guidelines…8 not-so-simple rules

To ensure that a blog submission is accepted for inclusion in the IndiBlogger directory,one has to ensure that they comply with them.One’s submission is not approved as soon as one submits a blog.Its reviewed and analysed and then only the submitted blog inclusion in their directory is approved.

And today I got a mail from…

“Dear Shalini,

Welcome to IndiBlogger! We are happy to inform you that your blog listing shaluhere has been approved and is visible on our directory.”

They have some really cool badges to keep on one’s blog…I got a few for me to 🙂

I was happy,happy as a hippo 🙂

And nevertheless it was the “Best of Today!’  🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 

Well well,I know this is unusual to be heard from me however,I would say something good happened today at office which was “Best of Today”.I had plans to reach office in second half,but then when I got a call from my reporting manager at on site office;I had to reach office asap.

When I reached,I was expecting some annoyed faces from the software user group,but I saw smiling faces who were somehow assured that issues will be taken care of.

The story behind this sudden change in the behavior of them, is big one;will tell you in detail later…

Issues were handled in no time and more smiles followed… 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
