Its nothing like Live concert isn’t it! Bryan Adams Concert!

I got back from the Bryan Adams concert. Huge lineup to park the car and get in - like about a half a kilometer long so we just managed to park our car and kept walking all the way up to the entrance and lucky we did and we got to walk right in! But my friends choked when security checked their purse and told them no cosmetics were allowed in the venue - huh?? They made them throw away their cosmetics! I yet to discover the security reason behind it?!!.

Great night, we were far from the stage but we could see him and the band really well. The highlight for me was when he said My name is Bryan. Here I am'. He took off his song 'Here I Am' from that point – The crowd was excited when he just stringed through our ears the first tune of “Summer of 69” everyone got into it and was loud and singing and dancing. Played all the hits “Baby you are gone”, “18 till I die” and some new tunes as well. Bryan Adams singing songs that you and me would have listened more than million times but still listening those songs from Bryan is for sure to get goose bumps.It gave me a great feeling to sing along to the hits from the 90's. The stage was a constant flurry of excitement and completely into the aura of rock music.

The sky was sparkling with beautiful stars here and there and a huge round shining moon. Bryan standing under the cool and beautiful night gray shiny sky and entertaining the crowd. His voice was roared through the miles in the air and I was totally in trance watching the sky, the star, the moon and the rock star, watching him singing, the whole sight was mesmerizing.

Hey Stars! What’s special today? Why are you shining too much? Stop! Isn’t it too much for my small eyes, huh I know they never listened to me. Just I could see another me in them with full packed excitement; All the way they were brilliance, twinkle, glint, radiance, and sparkling along with the rock star Bryan. All the more Bryan asked the 20,000+ crowd to light up their digital mobile and flash over to make the place brighter. Wow! The entire picture was food to the eyes and music to the ears. He sang around 20 songs including “Let’s make a night to remember”, “Please forgive me”, “How do ya feel tonight” “Running to you”- but it was not enough for all of us.

The crowd was kept in a constant trance and was simply electrifying. Bryan kept the pep talk on and trying to communicate to the audience. His light-heartedness was infectious. He has such a unique way of captivating and relating to his audience. I think after this astonishing experience, I now see Bryan Adams with even more respect than I did before. I could see that Bryan Adams’ impact on me and I hold the piece of evidence, that even when you climb the highest ladder of success, you can still remain grounded in your sense of reality. My eyes kept filled with plenty of colorful wonder as the music played on. The hyperactive guitarist scott, who was never at a standstill, wore a path in the floor running back and forth. The light works kept me craving for more.

Everywhere excitement, I noticed that there were bouncers, security guards and traffic policemen posted on every nook and corner. However, they could not do much to stop the madness. Thank God nothing of that sort happened. Bryan said Thanks and goodnight twice asked the crowd to go home but all of us were not ready to leave him. He left his guitar down and stood for a sec looking at the crowd. That was really fun to watch him the way he was teasing his fans. After he gave two more songs and signed off himself saying - Its fantastic night! Good night! God bless. The mood was ecstatic and upbeat throughout the show. I enjoyed every moment of the show and shouted madly . It proved to be a big treat for all the fans of Bryan Adams.

What a start of 2011 year! Hearing Bryan sing live was the experience of a lifetime. The concert was one of the most electrifying and enjoyable moments of my life. The feeling of being in a world of rock music was just amazing. The event was worth the experience which I will remember for days to come.

City of BilBao

QaTest conference was a very good experience and one of the best events I have been to. Even got an opportunity to present a paper. The atmosphere was friendly, so nobody was scared me :). I'm still in contact with some of the delegates I met there. The organisation of the conference was impressively professional.

I'm looking forward to hopefully going back there in 2011. It was a wonderful, inspiring experience and I got a lot of precious feedback. The conference was also very well organized - I enjoyed taking part in useful sessions attending very interesting and impressing the beautiful city of bilbao as well as meeting old friends Seniro executives and getting to know new ones. I hope we will all meet again at 2011 conference!

Outbond Training - Plenty of Actions at Pegasus Bangalore

Recently I have attended a leadership development training that is unmatched by any other program that i have attended so far. It was absolutely refreshing after many days sitting in A/C room.
We went to Pegasus training institute Bangalore and it’s a typical military campus where discipline plays a major role. We were 20+ leaders/managers put up in the 3 days camp. We have got down in the railway station and Pegasus Vehicle came down to pick us up. The Vehicle started moving towards to bad muddy roads and the dark way surrounded with dense bushes, It was absolutely looks like forest. After many days I saw Sun Raise and Sun Set.

The colonel Nagaraju was training all of us. All the three whole days we have put up under activities and different games. The games are fun to be played at the same time it taught us the importance of communicating the goals and objectives, how to involve your team in the goal-setting process, specifically as a leader we need to know team members ideas and How do we fine tune these ideas and produce the highest quality product. The most important aspects is that when the final results are successful, as a leader make it a team success rather than just all your own.

All the games are designed to represent the basic business environment. Especially IT industry environment has conflict and certain situations foster it. We all want to see conflict end positively and as a "win-win" for all parties involved but when we are in the real conflict situation as a human we bring all our hidden emotions played around us. So how to control those unwanted emotions and focus on the particular situation to solve the issue. Mainly I have learnt that - To be a successful manager, one should be empathetic in helping your team members work through their problems. It is also vitally important to have good listening skills. We must hear them out so that they can feel and say that they have been heard.

Even more important, you want to be decisive in your responses going forward for two reasons:To bring closure to the situation. To inspire your team’s confidence with your decisions and for following your lead in the future.
