My Cricket Wise on Vodafone!

The letter was in my hands – my much coveted ‘Offer Letter’. It had been more than 1 year now since I had been wandering jobless. All this while, I had tried for MBA and a couple of other lucrative job promising exams but to no avail. And today, the day had arrived... Finally! I had landed a good job... a job with a respectable income and more importantly a job which was to bestow upon me a new found sense of value and standing in the eyes of the society.

I flew high in the air not only that instant but soon enough in reality as well with the Jet flight taking me to my new home - Bangalore. I soon settled in my modest one bedroom unfurnished rented apartment along with one colleague of mine. There was no source of entertainment as I had left my idiot box and my desktop behind in Mumbai. A rudimentary way of life greeted me ahead in Bangalore.

Days passed by and with a new job came new friends and lots of other exciting activities but gradually home sickness started to creep in. Mummy ke haath ka ghar ka khana, sibling rivalry, TV were just some of the usual things whose absence bugged me often and... there was one more - Blogging!

Yes, I missed Blogging – my old companion from the very day I had graduated from my engineering college to the day I had joined my job here. I reminisced how blogging had been like a true friend and a constant source of motivation in all those times of solitude and loneliness. Whenever, I would feel alone and depressed, ‘Cricket Wise’ had come to my rescue. He had a unique way of talking with me and always bought with him a smile for his best friend, without fail! I had developed a fond passion for him, He understood me like no other and he was also the one who bridged the gap between me and the ‘Love of my life’Cricket... Thus, now matches were not only watched by me but also analyzed and ripped apart in ‘MY Analysis on Cricket Wise'! How proud those moments were, I remember, when I would open my dashboard the next morning of publishing a piece and receive a certain number of comments.. ah! How gratifying! The discussions that ensued helped me meet some crazy cricket fans like me... how much I waited for all of it and how much I missed all that now!

Cricket Wise Vodafone mobile blogging
Internet is fun - Thanks to Vodafone!

Enough! I had to do something, this was enough, I told myself one day... I cannot live without my blog anymore; and why should I? I started searching for feasible solutions in the market and after a bit of looking around stumbled on 2GB data plan for Rs.147 by Vodafone! It looked good.. umm actually great and I instantly subscribed to it and lo! Cricket Wise was now alive; I, little by little, took to mobile blogging and revived my Cricket Wise!!! IndiBlogger came into the picture next and soon enough I found new friends there!

Today, I am well into my job and that is what keeps me busy most of the times. I still don’t own a pc, forget a laptop, but my mobile internet connectivity is what keeps my flame for blogging going... and going strong! Without it, this wise man would have died long back!

Thank you Vodafone – you don’t have a clue what you have given to me... mobile internet is actually a lot more than just fun for me...

For me... IT is...


"Cricket Wise" is...
My Life!!!
