Chennai .. Finally ..

Never in my dreams had i hoped Chennai to be the way it is .. a friend told me sometime back that it's nice and I laughed .. but it is. I know most of my friends would laugh at this too .. but being here in Chennai, I find it be pretty much like Hyderabad, though a lot more humid. People here are equally helpful, but that's if you are able to get your doubts accross to them. And since we have Jayaram (who is learning Tamil faster than he ever learnt anything ) and Sreejith ( who, being a Mallu, knows a lot of Tamil ) with us, we have'nt faced many problems so far.
For the past 3 days here, I have met a large number of people, most of them are bright intelligent people from some of the better colleges in India. Though, we are not exactly friends now, but still, it's nice to know them.
The weather here has been better than expected and it has rained twice in the last three days. Though it's still humid, rains are always a relief. The places we have visited in Chennai so far are the shopping malls and movie halls ( that's other than the hotel where our induction takes place everyday from 9:30 to 5:00 ). Saw "Batman Begins" yesterday. It's nice, especially the subtle comic scenes. A must watch.
Other than that, Jaya and Arvind, went to see a house, a fully furnished one, that would cost around 12k .. but rejected it .. coz it was on top floor . with little ventilation. Jaya is heading the "house deciding committee" and Arvind is his Assistant. I doubt if they will every reach a decision, coz both have so varied mindsets when it comes to the factors they keep in mind, while deciding a house. While Jaya is more practical, Arvind is more "Dhinchak Dhinchak" ( jaya coined this .. ask him what it means ).
The induction programme started today, mainly dealt with finances and company policies etc. They got us an account in HDFC, which gives us many good offers. Can't get into details .. "CONFIDENTIAL" .. he he ..
Still .. among all this fun .. missing home .. missing Shivani .. missing my friends back in Hyderabad .. and missing the college life.
