Bonjour A tous / Hello All,

I have been forwarded the BIF-Challenge by Kumar Gaurav ( cant help, one of the pre-requisites ๐Ÿ˜› )

This is the second time I am writing this, first time I invested so much time n unfortunately I pressed the Back button erasing everything I wrote! ๐Ÿ™

Ok, so lets begin with the short Intro first :

I am Devashish Bhattacharya. I belong to Seoni,Madhya Pradesh in India. I am having around 3 years of SAP CRM Experience now. I speak 5 languages – English. Hindi,Bengali,French & Sarcasm ๐Ÿ˜€ .

I am a Bengali, have hometown in Madhya Pradesh and now working at Chandigarh,Punjab ( lots of diversities!)

Now taking one step at a time . Let me first tell you something about my hometown i.e. Seoni.

Seoni is a small town situated at the heart of India.

Seoni is well known as Mowgli’s Land because of the history associated that a man-cub named Mowgli used to live in the forests here who was raised by wolves.

( too much of fantacy ๐Ÿ˜› ) . This was immortalized in Rudyard Kipling’s book, ‘The Jungle Book’.

Rudyard Kipling has found this boy and then took him to Uttar Pradesh, where he gradually died as he didnt adapt the ‘new’ environment.

If you also like to revisit Mowgli’s life you would really like to come to Pench National Park :

Ok, so the blog is going elsewhere, so coming back..Let me tell you about my schooling.

I have done my schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Seoni. And as most of you I too consider them as the most wonderful and amazing golden days of my life!

I miss them a lot! Its really great to look back at the things we have done in our school. The best part why we remember them is because most of them were the ‘Firsters’! By Firster I mean something that we do for the first time in our life. And anything that we do for the first time gets engraved deep inside our heart!

Be it the first time bunks, first time pranks, best friends, punishments, laughter during punishments, assembly dramas, principal’s killing speech. first love <3 ๐Ÿ™‚

School Assembly Ground :

And then we enter the College! As the name itself suggests : ‘Cool-Age’! So after school we get a 4-year holiday package in the form of College!

The 4-years were mesmerizing!

I have done my B.E. in CSE from GEC, Bhopal ( famously known as the “city of lakes” ) which is the capital of Madhya Pradesh. The upper lake of Bhopal is so large that you cant see the other end of it!

First the raggings in fresh-man year ( which we love to give as we used to meet our senior girls), then we took raggings to meet the fresh( u know what I mean)

and thats how it goes.

I learnt a lot in these four years too! How to live life far from home, how to cook, play instruments, new languages, sports and so much!

I remember a incident that has took place while I was in third year, I would like to share it as it has connection related to SAP :

So theres this new faculty that came to our class, and he seem to be quite a knowledgable guy, so we thought to pursue him for some career counselling and all. So we reached to him and asked him, ” Sir, do you know what is SAP and how to get into it?

He chucked and replied,”SAP, pehle apna 3rd to nikal lo pher aana” ( SAP, atleast first clear your 3rd year and then come ) ! ๐Ÿ˜›

My College :

To tell you more about me, I think a pictorial representation will be great :

Goddess Durga, Navratri Celebrations @Bhopal ! ( Navaratri means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights.[4] During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are worshiped. The tenth day is commonly referred to as Vijayadashami or “Dussehra” (also spelled Dasara).

This one we took while on a roap trip to Sanchi , Raisen Madhya Pradesh( The ‘Great Stupa‘ at Sanchi is the oldest stone structure in India[1] and was originally commissioned by the emperor Ashoka the Great in the 3rd century BC) . We got to know that Tropic of Cancer passes through the route!

To end this, let me add some pictures to let you know about my state, the most calm, quiet and beautiful Madhya Pradesh :

1, Khajuraho : ( UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is considered to be one of the “seven wonders” of India.)

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/khajuraho_362149.jpg

2. Bhedaghat : The mighty river ‘Narmada’ flows through the marble rocks!

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/bhedaghat_362153.jpg

3. Gwalior Fort : It is a 3km fort, stretching all over the town! ( Gwalior Fort (Hindi: เค—เฅเคตเคพเคฒเคฟเคฏเคฐ เค•เคผเคฟเคฒเคพ Gwalior Qila) is an 8th century hill fort near Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, central India. )

Then after all the excitements I am now in SAP, and I am very thankful to God and to all my friends and well wishers who have wished for me so that I came into the SAP world.

I would like it to forward to : Ritesh Dube and Mangesh Ambardekar as they showed their interest by giving names in the join table.

My question for them would be a litle fantacy one and asked by most :

“What would you do at first if you got to know that you are supernatural? (with power comes responsibilities !)

    Hi Devashish,

    Glad to hear you are working in Chandigarh, i have been there for two and half years.

    Seoni is well known as Mowgli’s Land

    I never knew Mowgli’s land is related to Seoni. And this “Mowgli” character must have been viewed by many of us in different episodes and that song “Jungle Jungle bat chali hai,pata chala hai” still reminds me all childhood memories. ๐Ÿ™‚

    what was your “Band” name? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Lots of new things i came to know while reading this beautiful blog. I will google for more info.

    Thanks for sharing. Wish you a great year ahead.

    Rgrds,

    Jitendra
