Its a couple of months in Trivandrum and the initial months very boring without any friends to roam. Jithin aka Janu was the one guy. He’s a administrator in a reputed organization with lot of responsibilities. He can spend some time with me to have Chicken Masala Dosa from a cafe near to Tata LXI Building inside technopark. As usually he was very peaceful guy and takes time for eating with patience and a cup of black tea. Once he finished, he rushed to office to resume his duties. A couple of time, he may get phone calls from office for his approval or advises , he’s simply busy man. But he gives me a company when I request for his time. Kudos to Janu❤ u !!!
It was a bad idea to have a company with an extremely busy person during office hours will finally ends him in to troubles. Suddenly I got a call from Akhil Nambiar from Kochi and he said he is joining to Infosys soon and will be in Trivandrum. Its a glad news and finally he joined Infy. He will be free after 5:30 pm and he visit Technopark. He was working with Infy in Infy’s campus outside technopark, around 4 kms. Once he reached technopark, we will roam all the building having coffee or kulfies from Tejaswini. Also we have invested our time to count the pretty girls in the campus. Akhil was bought up in North India hates South Indian snacks and I get to eat North Indian dishes with suggestions from Akhil. He also introduced Khulfi which I heard only in Hindi movies. But Khulfi available in Tejaswini is just only for the name, actual will vary from this. Its a terrific time with him. With his time, my evenings were wonderful and awesome.
But day time was dry because of no much friends for lunch. Then there was a walk in and I refereed two friends to UST. Both cleared all the rounds and joined in technopark in a gap of one month. The first one joined was Vyas Dev and he got allocation to a banking project. Then my days was awesome, we experienced lot of dishes from various food counters across technopark and he makes my day time much better than that of the past.
Soon Praveen, he was my colleague at Orion also joined here. Both Vyas and Pravi was into same project and he also made a company and we made lot of friends from their team. We decided to change to a new home, but unfortunately that was dropped loosing Rs 1000. Me and Pravi were moved to one of my friends home. His name was PremRaj and we worked and stayed together at Ernakulam during my Alwaye days. He is a good cook and we got a room there. Its a 3BHK concreted building with a well and covered parking area. Its a nice home but it was occupied by 7 people including us. Ajeesh, Nikhil, Binu,Prem, Jimman (Arun) are the other inmates there. All are working with Technopark and its a wonderful time. We cocked from Kanji to Biriani including Chicken and Fish.
My seating was changed to 4th floor and then I got a laptop. So I can sit anywhere. Then I became friends with a lot of freshers joined to my team. They were good people and they are working as QA. Some of my team mates are Mathew, Rajesh Nair, Archana, Sandhyachechi, Rejiya, Kiran, Arun Hidayath etc. We enjoyed a wonderful Onam together as well as some functions and competitions inside UST.
I met another friend called Priya, she was from Thiruvalla and joined as a fresher. We quickly became friends and she helped me to take tickets while travelling back to my home. Its a good time with her and finally she got transfer to UST, Kochi. Once she went to Kochi, she got a proposal from her father’s friend and it got finalized and she requests for a transfer back to Trivandrum. Wishing all the best for a wonderful married life
I also had some friends which I saw very rarely. They are those who joined with me. Aparna, Heera, Arun etc were some of those I can able to connect and communicate. Also I should remember Sreenath, who also joined with UST almost the same time I joined. He was into mobility and having training for a long period. One day he was very happy to know he was allocated to good project. But we lost him by an accident with KSRTC. An employee of UST identifies him because of his tie and tried to reach hospital. Since he was not wearing helmet, there’s a serious internal injury happened and he dead on the way to hospital. Its a sad moment and we were in Medical Colleage till his parents arrived. Also met Jessen and tried maximum to help his parents and relatives. Thanks Santhosh from REFM team for all the supporting us and the facilities provided on an emergency situation.
