Century- My worst hundred

India lost in the world cup, qualifying match and my passion for cricket just end.

I have hardly watched any cricket after that even stopped playing too. After coming into IT my state of mind become “What is cricket?”. When team members discuss about cricket, I laughed on them. IT professional's life is Computer, internet, mobile and tv (for girls specially, how they can stop watching saas, bahu). So one day I was doing the multitasking youtube and changing the tv cannel, I was watching some funny video and parrallely on tv Sachin was hitting 6-4 and finally he make it to 200. I was influenced by his performance and take stupid oath that I will also do 100. So I have started with the push up and give up after 10. After getting flunked in push up I stopped thinking about physical work. I was keep on thinking what I can do better in which field I can make 100. My mind made list of the things which I usually do. Drinking 100 beer forgot about it, 100 km walk no way, continuously spend 100 hrs on Farm-ville not make sense. In this thinking process I 've met my friend Suraj and I know he always keep some filmy ideas in his mind.He shows his fan loyality and suggest me Sharukh's idea (Rab ne bana dee Jodi) ate 100 golgappe(pani-puri). Even though I don't like Sharukh but I thought “Bure time mai gadhe ko mama bana lete hai”. But this was again fail after eating 20 my stomach was going to explode and I was start feeling like ill as again and again golgappe wala using his dirty hand in dirty water. I gave up again. Taruna came with her absurd idea, give me 100 Puma' s bag. Which must be rejected and certainly it was. Veeru bhai said eat 100 icecream, Johari suggest 100 disprine, Monika talked about hundred samoshe. For my doubt in her idea she was even ready to bet on this that she will complete 101. I trusted on her stamina and give up from this idea too. Now I was in a big tension in my subconscious mind. One day on you tube I saw Devanand singing “Har fikar ko dhuye mai urata chala gya”, I went for smoke after that and suddenly something struck in my mind, lets smoke 100 cigrette in one day. And next day from the early morning I have started smoking after crossing 50 my lungs start begging for their life but I have forced them to make my 100. I was not the position to celebrate my hundred. But still I have done my 100 and but else field an IT professional can prove himself. Anxiety of work, late stay what else IT professional can achieve.

Great Work Raman!
Frustration across IT professional are catching like a fire these days and people start doing strange things in their frustration. You are right what else can we do!

Why not you start regular blogging and end up with 100 odd posts. You can extend 100 days/100 posts rather than in a single day. You might end up with making some profit by showing ad on your blog too.

certainly u sum it all up in ur heading worst 100, in ur quest to make a 100 u probably chose the worst thing. The only good thing about this is u got what u want to do, let's leave it to that. If I m put to the same situation I would probably go for 100 books/movies/songs, doing all 3 the would be awesome. Besides I didn't know before this that u quit watching/playing cricket coz of that loss in world cup (thanks for clearing the air)
Cheers :)

Hey u just want to hit hundred, these all above discussion are like bakwas one, u just do one thing join my cricket club and I am sure u will hit not only one but a lot of hundreds. As last week I hit 120 not out. So keep the Cricket passion on and and don't consider it like an IT guy frustration. Believe in your self...Jindgi mai kuch kerne ka to fir bas ker dalena or baki sab Bakwas..

Raman said...

Thnx dear I will surely hit that.
