Good news: I bought a home in Mumbai few months back and its finally close to being complete. Will move in by next week I think. In the context of things that have happened in my life, it's a really big deal for me. 


Noice. Congrats man. A house is always a massive life-moment. It’s funny how the current gen and 30+ folks think this might be superstitious B$, but the right house always moves towards you. You just have to let things happen. No rushing. I learnt it and in a great way (even with all the drama). The house meant for you will give you immense peace and prosperity. 😊

Good news : A court case in which I was the first informant + prime witness has finally finished with my statement today.

 

Happened all over the phone, with the judge video calling me on WA. 

 

Bad news : took almost 7 years for an open and shut case to reach its conclusion with the accused absconding and me signing a statement telling the court that I and the accused have compromised and made up just to end the case.

Yeah man. In our judicial system, the victim is just as much penalized as the accused. No wonder most crimes go unreported or are "settled" in the police station itself. 

 

Still one of a kind experience that I hope no one goes through. the accused's attorney cross questioning me was the highlight, I was so trying to not LMAO when he was putting out weird accusations against me, I think even the judge had a smile on his face (looked like a no-nonsense guy otherwise). That scene was even more hilarious compared to the comic court movies we get in bollywood.

So good news, a bit delayed but wanted to wait for the official letter. After a very tumultuous placement season and seeing nothing else than SDE in my future, landed a job which lines up with my interests. 

Plus CAT result was good as well. But will work for a few years and then give MS/MBA a thought. 

 

Bad news: Lost out on a couple of dream jobs because of the stupidity which plagues Indian placements. But that's life.

What’s the point? You’ll still get talked-down to and doubted on your academic credentials by a random 19-yr old on Twitter who actually has the time to check university pass-out lists trying to catch your bluff. That kid’s dad has so much money he could buy the entire PS5 allocation to India but on a matter of principle he will wait for official launch :giggle:

Good News : Finally got the promotion I worked all year for. And a decent hike in the moolah too is not a bad thing.

 

How to rob you? Please share directions. Need to be able to afford 5k PS5 games.
