I am a Certified Tester

Life Without Friends is like 
Sea without Ship...
Sky without Moon ...
Garden Without Flowers...

     Grrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!what am I about to say???
     A Tester without ISTQB certification is like a Computer without CPU???.:P He He.. I dint mean that certification are the heart of Software Tester or any other professional. But it do adds value to our profile. If not atleast to our Resume :D

Many people do say "Certification exams do not measure the quality of a tester." But I feel,It adds a tag to the Tester. I do felt that Cherished moment when my results for the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Certified Tester - Foundation level exam was out today and was the second topper in my batch.

This is not my End. Yup, I have miles to goooo.=D>My next milestone is to crack the ISTQB Advanced Level and then ISTQB Expert Certification.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho review

  • "The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho" is a story about a shepherd who is in search of "Finding his Treasure".  On the way of his search of treasure, he meets different people, different nations and at the end he finds out that the treasure is the journey  itself.

Some of the inspiring quote from the book,
  • When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
  • There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
  • 'Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.
  • Imagine if everyone went around transforming lead into gold. Gold would lose its value.
  • "I'm like everyone else—I see the world in terms of what I would like to see happen, not what actually does."
  • Sometimes it's better to be with the sheep, who don't say anything. And better still to be alone with one's books. They tell their incredible stories at the time when you want to hear them. But when you're talking to people, they say some things that are so strange that you don't know how to continue the conversation.
  • Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how
    other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

India, India !!!

I am not a cricket fanatic, yet I enjoyed Blue Bleed's Victory.The hype such as WFH option,Projectors setup @ office, less traffic on road, post-pone movie releases will make anyone to watch worldcup.

Expect Sachin and Dhoni none of the palyers seemed to be familiar.Many new Cricket terms too?! -Powerplay, Free hit, Maiden over, LBW. Yet I continued watching cricket from Semi-Finals and enjoyed the victory.

At Hostel, we thought of celebrating the victory by cutting the cake but ended up with having ice cream. 

I felt, Gambir must have been given the Man of match.As he was the person who drived towards the victory of India when all the senior palyers got out.

I never ever thought that I would be watching cricket curiously and the best part never thought about a post in my blog.

Yes!!! I got the answer now. Why Sachin is called God of Cricket
