That’s it ! I cant hold it any longer !

October 2, 2010

No, this is not another bathroom post. Don’t get deceived by the title! (Sorry Saksh)

People, theres something that I wanted to tell you all. I had been keeping this to myself for the last one month and its been really suffocating. I didn’t want to make the announcement public unless things got confirmed. But I cant anymore; I really cant.

Ok, no more drama, I am talking about my recent job change and its not what some of you would’ve assumed 😀 😀 😀  I received a great offer from another firm which I couldn’t refuse and I am relocating to Trivandrum, Kerala for the same.

Below is a video that I made for my colleagues of my previous office. Guess what, I had a screening for this video inside the conference room on my last working day and I was beaming like a director showcasing his movie on its premiere day. I literally lived with the video for almost three weeks day and night (afternoons were spent in office of course). This is infact the sixth version of the movie; each time I publish the video, I get some new idea or a better photo to include and then start working on it from the scratch. Though I had seen the video more than a hundred times myself-pre and post editing, watching it with my ex-colleagues and boss was one helluva experience. Anyway, lemme know how it is.

Please increase the volume of your speakers or put on your headset to listen to the audio, otherwise it will look really funny.

It was difficult to leave my office, and even difficult to leave Chennai. I stayed in Chennai for almost 10 years and I am sure that the memories associated with the city and its people are going to haunt me for another few years. I turn emotional each time I think about it, but don’t worry, I am not taking you guys there.

Guys, I will be on a break from the internet for I donno how long; probably two weeks or even a month, depending on when I get the connection at my new home. And I am not going to risk my job even if I had an access to the net in the new office 😀 😀 😀

So, here’s wishing everybody a good time till I come back. Please don’t blog much; don’t make me feel like an alien whenever I am back. See you guys soon !

Btw, I wouldn’t be available from tonite to reply to your comments, but that doesn’t mean you don’t leave comments here ! Buhahahahaha !!!!

    I thought you were giving some very good news, Vimmuuu, you disappointed me!

    The news is bad for us and good for your future!

    You are leaving Chennai, too bad!

    I was expecting a review of Enthiran also, you disappointed me, here too, tooooo bad!

    People are here at home along with a chatterbox child! Let me watch the video later!

    All the best to you and Laxme. Take care.

    • October 2, 2010 6:59 pm

      Its too early to give any good news Sandhya ! 😀 😀 😀

      Dont keep saying im leaving chennai; makes me feel guilty for no reason 😦

      I couldnt catch Endhiran because of the whole relocating thing. Leaving tonite to TVM, lets see if I can do something to watch it over there 😛 😛

      Thanks a lot and will wait for your feedback on the video ! 🙂

    Iyyo what will happen to those colourful buildings in Chennai now? I think they will shed their colours crying for you to take their pics 😥 😥

    Boy you really had me worked up with that title 😡 but thank you for at least putting up the loo door pic of your office. 😛

    Well I praamise to not post until you are back. After all you are the only few remaining sane people in this world who do visit my blog 🙂

    did your colleagues have tears in their eyes when they saw this clip?

    good luck Vimz 🙂

  28. October 4, 2010 8:42 am

    Good luck as you move ahead Vimmuuu! Also and most importantly, thanks very much for taking the time to meet me! It was absolutely wonderful to have finally caught up!

    I’ve got a post almost ready on that and will be featured soon!

    Hope you have a wonderful time in Kerala!

  29. October 4, 2010 9:20 am

    Congraaats on the new one. I pity the new CEO, tho 😛 😛

    And well, from the movie, i figured out one thing. Most of the time, you were either clicking pics…or eating out! Chummaathalla ithrem vannam 😛

    The last shot was, honestly, a bit fake 😀 You could’ve instead, shot it on your own, walking away…just showing the building…and the gate closing.

    And, what was that JFK shot for?? 😀 😀 😀 😀 Meant to say, even if you throw me out, you’ll always be in my heart? 😀 😀 “This is what I’ll do for Synaptris” types?

    Mean attitude over. Muhahahahaha :mgreen:

    Good work anyways. Congrats on the move again. trivandrum is an awesome place…so are its people 😀 The house owners there, are esp superb. You’ll have a good time 😉

  30. October 4, 2010 10:56 am

    chey! naanam illathavan!! even while making a final video to ur office, u cud not avoid copyright issues!!! :mrgreen:

    And why were YOU making the video for ur office??? It shud be the other way round at ur farewell !!! 😛 😛 What effort did those guys make for u???

    I agree with scorpia…the last shot does look a little out of place in the remaining shots 😀 😛
    And whatever was that JFK bit for? 🙄 altho i have to admit in that closing shot u look like a nice decent little kid 😀 😀

    Ok athokke pottey! Sho! Aa video kandappo njanum kurachu senti aayi! It was while u were working in this office that I met you… remember all those night shifts and late-night stupid conversations…and blog spamming!!! 😀 😀 😀 Those were the good old days !! :mrgreen:
    Ellam kazhinju..sigh 😦

    Anyway moving onto better things. Nammude naadukalilokke aanallodey nee pogunnathu!!! 😀 😀 😀 All the best! Formalitykku orennam irikkatte!! :mrgreen:

    We anyway know u will be back to blogging first chance u get…or when u get a net connection up and running at ur place. 😛
    So there’s no point in missing u also!! LOL 😀
    onnu poyi pettenu vaa maganey! 😀 😀

  31. October 4, 2010 12:24 pm

    Congrats for the new job 🙂 Video was too good Vimmuu.. and best part was the background music 😀 what about the office guys? they gave you a nice sendoff gift in return? last shot is really too filmy and even the JFK bit 😛 😛 😛 Good, so now you will be relocating to God’s own country eh? 🙂 very very scenic 🙂 but like Reema said there goes my chennai plan down the drain 😦 I was hoping to meet you when I come to Chennai but Trivandrum is some place I may never get a chance to visit. I would have come to Chennai for visa stamping definitely 😦 Hmm time for you to make a Bangalore trip I say 😛 😀 😀

  32. October 4, 2010 12:26 pm

    Sigh! U made me cry 😦 I mean thru this post 😉 Soo reminded me of the time when we relocated from Blr. 23 yrs in one place and u suddenly move out and I felt all equations were gng wrong. Am sure time will heal everything. So much so that I nw love my new home too and wil surely feel uneasy when we hv to leave Hyd 🙂

    Best of luck Vims for the new job and wishing u a successful career ahead 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Ya, dnt browse from work 😛 We cn do with some break here 😉 😉

    I know the reason for telling all of us so late…so that u can easily escape the treat part of it…but rest assured, that I’ll wait to take that treat from you… 😛 😛 You didnt come home at all…not fair.

    Wonderful video….good song selection….I think your whole team was so happy to see that u remembered each one of them and added them in the video…. 🙂 Its a lovely thought and am glad u did this one… 🙂

    Few things which stuck me in that video :
    – Where did u get that silver glittery shirt from ???? My God…its so glittery…that for one moment I thot u ran away from Spiderman shooting… 😉
    – Whats that pose by those 5 guys showing their butt ???? U just cant keep away from such pics, huh ???? 🙄
    – JFK’s quote – check it up… u missed a word….

    And all the very best to you for a new home in a new city. 🙂 Hope u both will enjoy your stay there. And get back to Chennai fast. 🙂 Will miss u during blogger meets.

    So, keeping up the spirit of the last quote, “Ask not what the company can do for you – ask what you can do for your company”. All the best for your future endeavors. Also, do let me know some tourist spots in Palakkad, when time permits. I am doing some photo posts on them…

    You back? I did not comment on this post, because you went on your hibernation by the time I reached this post 🙂

    But decided to comment as soon as you come back, to avoid being threatened by someone 🙂

    How is Tvm? Have you managed to drive everybody crazy there, yet?

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
