Novell - IDC, Bagmane

Its official now! Novell, Software Development (I) Pvt Ltd has moved to a new facility in Bagmane Tech park, C.V. Raman Nagar, Bangalore. It had been a long wait for all of us to move to Bagmane. Finally the reckless and dusty Hosur road can be avoided finally. We are few among those who have opted to move into the city from outside the city.

The President and CEO Ron Hovsepian and other executives like Kent, Joe and many others came down to inaugurate the new facility. Ron gave a key note followed by other executives. There was an employees Q&A where the last question from Abi was on "Do's and Don't as a CEO?". Ron finally ended his note with few words from his mom, "You got two ears and one mouth, so use them proportionately!" Then a fantastic effort to capture all Novell geeks and nerds in a single frame. It turned out to be fun capturing all in a single photo outside the facility.

In brief, Bagmane office is cold, spacious, pleasant with vibrant colors, neatly designed cubicles, more than enough cupboard space, aerial view (I sit on 7th floor), food courts and most important of all not so much crowed as the Hosur road. A welcome change in daily work. Thanks to all those who have been behind in making this happen.

Got to go now, many things to burn down.

Friends, but we fight

Yet another reason why Bangalore will not be my final destination.

Yes, Karnataka and Tamilnadu are two neighboring states. But they dispute over many things, the latest one is Hogenakal issue. A reflection of mood in Bangalore is this, I could see a poster worker coming and pasting *Adult* film posters upon Tamil movie posters on the walls.

Check these photos and another experience of Rohini.

எனது அன்பு உன்னிடம் மாறது என்று நினைத்தேன்.
உனது அன்பு என்னிடம் மாறியது என்று உணர்ந்தேன்.

'Virgin' mobile

This huge banner near a main traffic signal, caught many commuters when they were waiting for the red to clear. I was also one among them. Took a quick second to click it. No wonder why cellular industry is booming.

But ironically my question was who is going to be benefited by this offer? Guy or girl?...
