Summer ’08. Will remember these months forever! Had never imagined that I’d land up with an internship in Microsoft.. And the last couple of months at Bangalore have been as good as they come. Here’re ten memories (in no particular order) that I’ll take back from Bangalore.

1 ) Foosball. We’ve spent hours on this lovely game. Just listening to the sweet sound of the ball hitting the post spurs me on. We’re ready to take on Joey and Chandler now!

2 ) Pagare-Paro-Khatri-Piyush-Saurabh-Prateek. Ah.. What a blast we’ve had. Some memories which stay etched forever. For people who didn’t know this, Piyush is Hilarious (note the capital H) when he gets going. We’ve had nights when we never stopped laughing. Khatri, as usual was his unassuming best, and the victim- poor Paro 😛

3 ) Ooty and Mysore. Undoubtedly, the best trip I’ve ever had. My initial resistance against missing the mock broke down, thanks to the persuasive skills of Khatri. And I don’t regret that wee bit. The all night road trip, where no one slept, the RJ show, the cold I’d caught, the freezing temperatures, the game we played.. Ahh… Life’s good, ain’t it?

4 ) Polo Nest and the breakfast we’ve had there. Needless to mention, Microsoft pampers its employees like no one does. The exorbitant guest house and its breakfast was a part of the story. Those 15 days where we’d pinch ourselves every day, unable to digest the fact that we were being treated like kings.

5 ) July 12th. My birthday 🙂 My friends made it all the more special for me by gifting me a terrific Fastrack watch. Thank you, Pagare, Khatri, Paro and Prateek.

6 ) Work at Microsoft. We’re nearly done. Hurray!

7 ) Brigade road. Every Saturday, we’d reach the road and hang out like crazy. Watch movies, go bowling, eat out. Gosh! Some weekends we’ve had. It’s when you are working that you realize the true value of weekends.

8 ) CAT. And the mocks we’ve given on Sundays. Has to find a mention.

9 ) Gudbud. For every damn thing, we’de bet on this fantastic icecream. One of the better Sundaes I’ve had.

10 ) WonderLaa. How Prateek and I conquered every ride. How Khatri, who was trying to intimidate poor Pagare, got bludgeoned himself.

All in all, a fantastic summer ’08. Looking forward to getting back to college now!
