La Mauvaise Foi

La liberté est ce que vous faites avec ce qui a été fait à vous.   (Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you) - Jean-Paul Sartre.   You try to wake up on time every morning. Sometimes you have had a good sleep, sometimes you haven’t, because you were anxious. You try to finish your morning routine as early as possible because you have to leave home by 8AM; to reach office by 9 AM. Office, a place where you spend at least 9 hours of your day, working on things that you probably do not even make use of. But they are important, because they are owned by someone else and they would sell it to other people and make money. You will have to help them make that money because a tiny fraction of that money becomes your salary. There is another person above you, whose primary job is to manage you and make sure you work as intended. You aspire to be that person someday, as he on the other hand, aspires to be the person above him. 

Brown County National Park

On the 14th of May, our colleague Sajil dropped Jonah, Seb and me at the Denver Airport. Our flight was uneventful. We reached Indianapolis at around 6pm. Our colleagues who work at Indianapolis office, Raghu (BJ) and Sushanth came to receive us at the airport. Sushanth’s parents were in the US so, they came along too. We checked in at our hotel very close to the office. After having dinner at an Indian restaurant, we shopped for some grocery before heading back to the hotel.

On 15th of May, we went to BJ and Sushanth's house and together, we drove to Brown county national park. This place was unbelievably green. Very bright and beautiful. We had a great time trying different trails around the park. Lovely place. These pictures will speak more.

For lunch, we had some tasty chapati’s and rice cooked by Sushant’s mother, at the park. In the evening, we headed back to their apartment and had some delicious south indian food, again prepared by Sushanth’s mother. It was like being back at home. 

Our week went by very nicely, with lot of work at the test lab. We also had three day training and I got to meet a lot of people. The dinners in th evening with the group was fun. We also tried some local Indian restaurants like Udupi cafe and Taj of India. Long weekend is approaching and I am all excited about the trip to Naigra  falls that we have planned.
