A Marriage proposal by a sw guy
Have you ever imagined how a s/w guy would propose...?
Dear Ms. XXXXX,
I 'v seen you yesterday while surfing on local train platform and realized that you are the only site I was browsing
for. For long time, I have been lonely, trying to find a bug in my life and you can be a real debugger for me now. My life
is just an uncompiled program without you, which never produces an executable code and hence is useless. You are not only
beautiful by face but all your ActiveX controls are attractive as well. Your smile is so delightful, which encourages me
and gives power to me equal to thousands of mainframes processing power. When you looked at me last evening, I felt like
all my program modules were running smoothly and giving expected results. /* Which I never experienced before */. With this
letter, I just want to convey to you that, if we linked together, I'll provide you all objects & libraries necessary for a
human being to live an error free life. Also don't bother about the firewall which may be created by our parents as I've
strong hacking capabilities by which I'll ultimately break their security passwords and make them agree for our marriage.
I anticipate that nobody is already logged in to your database so that my connect script will fail. And its all certain that
if this happened to me, I will crash my system beyond recovery. Kindly interpret this letter properly and grant me all
privileges of your inbox.
XYZ Software Professional
Java market is down.
Once old man was sitting in a park reading book "Learn C++ in 21 days".
A passer by saw him and asked "You are such an old guy, why do you bother to learn C++?"
"I have heard that now communication language at heaven is C++ only, so after my death when I will be in heaven, I don't want to face any
communication problem." old man replied.
"But how come are U so sure that U will be in heaven? It could be a hell also." he asked.
"Ya, doesn't matter .... I already know Java".
There is this Good Ol' Barber in some city in US. One day a Florist goes to him for a haircut. After the cut, he goes to pay the Barber and the barber replies:
'I am Sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I am doing a Community Service'. The Florist is happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the Barber goes to open his shop, there is a Thank you Card and a dozen roses waiting at his door.
A Cop goes for a haircut and he also goes to pay the Barber and the barber replies: 'I am Sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I am doing a Community Service'.
The Cop is happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the Barber goes to open his shop, there is a Thank you Card and a dozen Donuts waiting at his door.
An Indian Software Engineer goes for a haircut and he also goes to pay the Barber and barber replies; 'I am Sorry, I cannot accept money from you; I am doing a Community Service'.
The next morning when the Barber goes to open his shop, guess what he finds there
A Dozen of Indian Software engineers waiting for a free Haircut......

LIFE IN US - The H1 tragedy...
Love my new job here in Silicon Valley. My salary is 30% higher! I have stock options! The temperature outside is 65F in winter! California is the best place on earth!!! Sure glad I moved out here.
Still looking for an apartment. Freeways everywhere to take you places. Love California!
Found a 1-bedroom apartment for $1900/mo. California is a bit more expensive than I thought.
Gas hit $2.29/gal. Somebody stole the gas from my car. That sucks....
A small earthquake! And this is what everyone was so worried about? Almost didn't feel it.
A forest fire and a mud slide near LA. Who cares, that is far away from me!
A big earthquake... Spent 4 hours in my bathtub. Boy, that was scary. Glad we didn't have no stinking earthquakes where I grew up.
Drought! They turn on the water once a day. This sucks big time! Somebody stole the water from my car's radiator. Why did I come to California?
Decided to buy a house. Found a 2-bedroom fixer-upper for $800K. Borrowed against my stock options for down payment. Freeway traffic is worse. Today it took nearly two hours to get to and from work...each way.
My startup fired 90% of the work force, including me. The stock lost 98% of its value. My options are underwater.
Had to sell my house. Couldn't make the payments. Found a studio apartment for $2300/mo. The traffic is unbearable
Problems with electricity. They turn the electricity off several times a day. It's called "rolling blackouts." Somebody stole my car battery...what do I do now?
I'm typing this, stuck in an elevator, in complete darkness. The battery of my laptop is dying. Silicon Valley is no more. Angry hordes of former dot-commers are looting in the dark. It was fun while it lasted.
Trying hard to get H1B Sponsorer. No body is ready to sponsor me. Everybody says they will sponsor me once if I get project. Interviews are happening but no result, or no budget or Project is on hold.
No money to pay rent, car loan and cell phone bills, managed to pay bills with creditcards. Took some cash advance from creditcard companies and bought ticket to India. Taking new credit cards as lot of promotions and every credit card company wants to give me credit card. So why not take it.
Did lot of shopping with credit cards, the day of my returning to home has come, I went to airport and called Car Finance Co (DCU) told them to take their car which is parked in airport as I cannot pay loan any more. I put the phone down before they were about to tell something. Sat down in the flight and what a relief.
Prepared resume with US Experience in Bold letters and went for job search, surprisingly No Job postings in Papers, Couple of companies who advertised for jobs has clearly written in Bold letters "Applicants with US experience will not be considered for this position"
No job. Getting frustrated. Today morning I woke up and my mind is very fresh. I have decided to do what my father asked to do 6 Years back i.e to take care of them and take care of fields in my village.
