Lift lobby…

Most buildings have lift lobbies these days. As the name suggests all lift lobbies will have elevators, predominantly, and few other inconsequential things of not much importance.

The lift lobby that I mention, technically speaking, has six elevators with 3 on each side facing opposite. One side has a large glass panel, while the other side happens to be the entrance to my office. IMG_20100920_162140

It’s the place where my friends and I mark our attendance twice a day for the coffee sessions around 10:30 & 3:30, without fail. Shortest session lasted only for 15 mins, while the longest went beyond 1hr. 

Strategically located in 3rd floor is very convenient for all. Strategically?!?!?! Yes, for the very reason that it is not too high to miss the details of what is happening below and not too close to the ground that you would miss distant happenings.

What attracts us the most in the lift lobby is the view it gives us. The main entrance clearly visible allows us to watch people moving in & out, the road nearby and the distant over-pass always bustling with traffic, headlights gliding slowly as dots during night time and et al.

2010-07-05 15.48.47 Rains always look awesome, particularly when the horizon is engulfed with dark clouds. Be it the heavy ground trashing rain or the droplets formed by the gentle drizzle…they are eye-catcher for sure.


The most common topic always revolves around automobiles as they are the fast & furious. But we don’t restrict us with that, as we also talk much about flight, jet, ship, etc which are always interesting attractive. Most flight, jet or ship fly or sail but here they talk, walk, stroll, giggle and so on. Quite interesting, isn’t it? 😉

We seldom talk about politics, but make important decisions on world economy & peace. Our decisive knowledge ranges from Obama’s decision on American economy till how indo-pak-china links should happen 15 years from now. At times, we even conclude how the IT sector should function to avoid future recessions. Concluding decision are tough jobs, aren’t they? Yepp…but we do that with a professional touch…

Lift lobby is our charging station. No matter how deep one gets into a serious trouble or exhausted to the core, lift lobby re-energizes our spirits. Be it the sad story or the happiest moment we think of sharing, it is done at the lift lobby.

Though tossed across work places constantly by the project needs, we make sure to assemble in the lift lobby as it is the place where we find…….happiness.

Most office, including mine, does have spaces like pantry, cafeteria, etc to rejoice and relieve the daily work tension. But lift lobby still tops the list for few souls like me.

My First Post…

Phew… Here goes my first post on WordPress… 🙂. Though heard a lot about stuffs like blogs, i never had an intention of having one for myself and finally decided to have. For everything there would be a point of start and for me to start a blog i would say “hmmm…I donno”, coz I really don’t know. But I would point The Alchemist who had been a catalyst for my attempt. Right now, not sure whether to thank her or not as blogging appears to be additional task amidst of my busy schedule 🙂

(You guys have to believe me that I am really busy these days and to be more precise it took a whole week for me to prepare this little post).

If this, my attempt for blogging, goes well i would offer my sincere thanks to The Alchemist. If not….hmmm…well…leave it, coz my friends are always right on decisions 😉 🙂

Actually, i wanted to create a terror in the blogging world with my entry violently. So the title, and hope everybody feels the same 🙂 😀

Test for a good start

This is a test blog by an amateur blogger.  Hope everything goes on well 🙂
