A tale of two bros. named 'Copy' n 'Paste'.-updated


Q : Which is the country for all ghosts??

A : Bhoot-an (bhutan)

Q Which country has said no to Paypal, the e-commerce site??

A: Nay-pal (nepal)

Wait!! rukiye!! isshtop!! Don't yet take your mouse pointer to the north-east of the screen and hit the cross button. This post hasn't resulted after an exercise of ctrl, c and v keys as the work above is oreejinal and its blogspot not ibibo.com.

Coming to the title of the post, the point is that after full four years of (kompooter) engineering the text printed on the keys- ‘ctrl’, ‘C’ and ‘V’ on my keyboard has faded away, of course due to over-exploitation, and it's true for all engineer bhaailogs..hai ki nahee??

I remember well when I was a moronic 'may-I-go-to-toilet' type toddler and the kindergarten teacher tried to punch-code or slap-code the first three letters of the English alphabet into my 'cache' memory, what I could recall, was saying

" A -- B -- control C..".

The teacher immediately called up my mom and told her ki "Ladka haath se gaya..iska kuchh nahee ho sakta....Software mazdoor hi banega ye".

And Once when I was in my 5th standard, during a Social science test I was trying to 'ctrl-c' from my smart-ass neighbor Subramanian (he needed a specially ordered name sticker for his notebooks) . While I was continuing with my 'distance-learning', the class teacher caught me benefiting from Subramanian’s 'Saare-answer-teep-le-but-naam-mat-teepiyo' program.

As hard-disks lose all the data if subjected to any physical damage, a strategically placed thappad [ delivered by the teacher] acted as a "FORMAT" command to my little brainy ka 'Social sciences' wala drive. And the rest is 'history'.

When i grew up and after various OMR sheets ke bubbles ka mooh kaala karke, I reached my college proving my kindergarten teacher's prediction alright. I could play those 'keys from heaven' faster than Adnan sami. (bechaara ek key dabaayega teen dab jaayengi..itna bhi koi patla nahee huaa wo..uske liye ek hi key hai keyboard par.wo hai space-bar :p!!).

Lab-assignments, mini-projects, movies on the LAN, Eminem lyrics, standard b'day wishing scraps and what not, kuchh nahee bachaa.

When the placement season commenced in our college i had to prepare a CV to advertise myself. The term said it all- 'C' and 'V' ; bah!! what more could i have added under my technical skills but that. Thats what i have been doing during the natural course of my engineering life. :P

And now I am knocking on the doors of the Saaftware industry, the veterans say that these are the 'keys to happiness' and i can't agree more.

P.S :Aur upar ke 2 PJs padh ke gaali mat dena maine hi likhe hai. :p.

P.P.S : The hit-counter crossed the 15,000 mark. Last month accounted for about 5000 visits. Thank you readers. :)
