Cheers to Ora0107 !!!

The name we (Bijesh was it you who coined it ?) gave to the group of 19 who joined Oracle bangalore on 01,Jul 2002 ie., four years back .. All freshers just out of college .. we had a nice long 3 month training in oracle. then we all moved to diff projects .. 7 of us joined OD - Oracle Direct and 5 went to OSSI .. these were the large groups .. rest were small (1 or 2 ) ..

4 years on .. we had/are having a great time in oracle .. some of us have moved out of oracle to other companies and to other countries .. some have gone for higher studies .. some moved onto next state in life - got married ..
the group is intact and in touch and we are the same lively group .. the number of meetings have come down as people moved on .. in my case, i met the guys after a long gap of 1+ year in jan this year.

Just now skely called me and told me that they (Bijesh , Anu and Chells , Skely ) are celebrating 4 years in oracle having a wine party (with commanderia from cyprus) .. I guess skely will be calling everybody to make them virtually part of the celebration .. I surely miss being part of it !

Also skely told me that he is going to malaysia with dada .. Due to Dada's performance, skely gets a paid vacation to malaysia .. Lucky skely ..
Debu told that he was going to use lots to pick up who will accompany him .. i doubt if skely fixed the lot chits also !! Skely , always be nice to ODs..

I deserve going to Malaysia, because I criticize the OD's that makes them conscious of doing better work...

Whatever I am going to Malaysia...

BTW, Next time you meet us get a bottle of champagne...
