My First Flight Journey

People say "First love is always unforgettable." What about First journey in Flight? That too First Journey in Flight with our parents, Sister and sisters son???

July 7th I was in a hurry to get blessing from my periyamma,Meet Sharmi, Shopping and Packing. Yes.. I am moving to Hyderabad tomorrow.Its my first Flight travel (Coimbatore to Hyderabad) with my Mom, dad and sister.

The flight was scheduled at 10:45AM. We reached Coimbatore airport and was busy in check in formalities. During the security check, the bomb detector was shouting when they checked my DAD. He kept removing Mobile Phones, key chains. still It showed Red-light and shouted "Bee,Bee" . The security officer gave a look and said something is wrong sir!?. Then we started scanning him and found a metal token (an acknowledgement given when bike is parked in bike stands)

Then we waited in Boarding room. I kept answering Sanju's repeated questions, "when will the flight fly?" Oh god I must have answered him at lest 500 times :(

Luckily my sister and myself got window seat but they were above the wing. So the view was quite restricted.I made my mother to sit beside window as my dad has already explored the window view twice in Kingfisher and Jet Airways. I was not excited much as I was wondering whether I am stepping to the right path (Re-locating to HYB). My mom and sister were excited about the flight journey. Crap sanju slept during the flight take off :(

My dad was instructing us on how to put the seat belt, as he travelled twice.When the flight accelerate up the runway, I felt quite nervous and holded my fathers hand. We landed up Rajiv Gandhi international airport. We collected our bags and stated moving out as the CAB driver was waiting for so long time.

The cab driver was holding my name in name plate as if i was the boss for the company. My eyes focused on "Muthusamy" rather than "Deepika". I showed my dad his name. Opps Mother name should also include in our name.
Overall, its was nice to see my parents enjoying the journey. My dream is to take my periyamma in flight once

Here are my few clicks while travelling

Last day at IBM . . .

"A journey is best measured in
Experience rather than miles"

14th August 2007, the day I joined ACE gang (IBM). Lot of dreams, passions in everyone's eyes. Damn sure, the excitement towards IBM logo and the BOOM gifts received from IBM are preserved like diamond @ everyones home

Today is my last day of employment at IBM.

Why should I say "Its My last working day at IBM".. Hmmm... Rather I would love to say "Going on long vacation"... who knows I may be back to IBM as a CEO ;)

2 years 10 Months, , Lots of cries, RCM exams, Dis-appointments, fight with managers, Initial Bench period, , was this my experience in IBM????

Yup, I need to think a year to write my happiest moment @ IBM.

Its not the experience, The lesson learned in each pain. I should definitely thank IBM sorry sorry , My team for giving me such a wonderful lesson.

Its always the First job leaves lasting memories. . . Yes, Still I feel a Feather in my cap when I say "I was an IBMer".

Finally, Thank you Reshu and Suchitra for everything. I can definitely say that if you both were not there, I would not be in a place where I am today.

Santhosh, My little brother, Mr.Perfect, gave such a wonderful send off.

Oh god!!! How can I forget my friend Abitha. What I am here is only because of her.

Stepped into IBM with a dream of Deepika M.S., But signing off with Deepika MBA.,

The only only only happiness I had these IBM period was my MS mates and PESIT College.I never even had a dream of studying in one of the TOP institutes in KARNATAKA .

Fighting, comments, advices, class room sleepizzzing, Break time chats. My eyes wets with memories. Anitha, Aabitha, Ramya, Swathi, jayashree, Layanya, Malar, DeepaShree, I must have not got those good friends without IBM. Thanks IBM!!!

And also,Today is my last day in Bangalore. I am moving to Hyderabad. A Completely new state, New language, new job,etc etc,,, Nothing is old apart from me.

I have been in Bangalore for 2.10 years.

I wish myself for a new world , , "All the BEST DEEPU"
