May so far >>>


On a normal day I hate it when people interrupt when I talk...but not the other day when I had to wait for the laughs of 150+ houseful crowd to subside so I can continue with my lines.

On a normal day I love perfection and detest when people miss synchronization ...but not the other day when a few of our actors missed some lines yet came out with spontaneous reactions which were better off than the ones in the script. 

On a normal day I don't prefer too much of experimentation, this time around tried something called the Pirandello technique in the script of a 2omins play which luckily worked out!!!

Yes the Rebelz play was a rollicking success, more than the laughs and the applauds what made me happier was that we now have a bigger team to take care of things. Starting with just 3-4 guys who were doing all the work[yours truly was the script writer cum PR cum set design coordinator cum compere cum...many more] now we have a team of around 10 who are motivated enough[come on theatre doesn't pay :)] to pull off a wonderful show...As an icing on the cake we got some really wonderful reviews too. A heartfelt thanks to all the blog friends...those who came and those who did their best to support virtually...thanks a ton folks.


Well...stopping my rebelz tomtoming  and bragging[blogging rhymes with bragging eh?] here. All the high obtained on sunday evening was drained out as soon as I reached office the next morning. The first mail on monday morning... A notification, SSAS,SSIS,WSS,SSPS - these are a few technologies which I need to ge trained on. In days of recession do I have a choice to pick the technology I work on?. After a week of so-called training I am yet to know the abbreviations of those technologies!!. My great march towards the pink slip I guess.....but then not too sure if I do care.
