Eskool! - The Making

Well... its all in the game! as sup always says...
I do agree.. its just all in the game of life.. but eskool.. our dream project is just born and keeping it alive taking whole of our lives.. guys lemme tell you.. Neva gonna forget all these moments which am experiencing now!

it was just another Saturday May 31st 2008, i was painting the eskool door wall, thats when i realized what am i doing here...? whoz this Sup.. Ragu.. Hari n all ... is this the dream or am i really painting the door??? Yes... the last two days before the school gonna start and there was so much pending work.. Sup with all the computer cables and Ragu cleaning all the tables... phew! carpenters still working on the tables so that we can accommodate 15 computers... time went by and realized that we forgot our dinner completely... drove to the empire on MG Road and had dosa chicken (thats for sup.. i just had Veg dosa!!).

Eyes opened to a Sunday the last day before the school starts.. Carpenters still sleeping... Ragu waiting for us near the gate.. lots of pending works.. Networking, software installations, Center table for teachers, chairs, lighting and major breakdown with the UPS batteries.. expensive breakdown too ... i still wonder how did we complete all these in one day..

June 02, 2008.. as scheduled, the school reopens and Eskool takes birth! all the students and teachers were thrilled to watch the new rejuvenated computer lab called eskool computer lab! Red and Blue colors all over and brightness within. Distributed sweets and chocolates for all the students and teachers... all excited faces but lot of appreciations as well!

Well.. thats about how it got kicked off...but after that.. everyday phone calls from teachers saying " sup.. there is a problem with the 5th system's mouse.. 7th system is getting hanged.." Phew! we getting hanged ourselves... but still.. we have our madhu... on call he will be there at the school at his own created time and day! but completes the work though! thank goodness calls are reduced by the 3rd week... wow! watte fun being associated with this initiative...

am happy the way things are happening. There are lot of ups and downs in the process which we are facing every day every minute. Phone calls, Sms, Gtalk chats… many modes of communication. I am not finding any difference in the amount of work we are doing every day / every night / weekends, getting irritated, frustrated, being silent, small failures, arranging for money, having dinner at 2am early morning, skipping lunch, painting walls, cleaning computers, sweeping, driving crazy, silly fights, getting angry at things, stupid decisions...

Phew! I’m just loving it.
