About Me

Hello everyone, Myself Barun Singhania. I m a B.Tech by qualification and my field of specialization was Information Technology. I completed my engineering from B.P.Poddar Institute of Management & Technology, Calcutta under West Bengal University of Technology. I did my schooling from Dreamland School, Uttarpara(a small town in Hooghly district in WB). I know it sounds like an answer for the first question in an Interview - "Introduce Yourself".. :P

Currently, I am with Cisco Systems Inc., working as a Network Engineer. I am a Social Media addict. Please refer to this link to know more about my social presence. I like it so much that I completed my Social Media Specialist certification and now a recognized Cisco India Social Ambassador. If you are not able to find me anywhere, just ping me on Facebook or mention me in Twiiter, I'm sure you'll get a response... :)

I like spending time on TechCrunch, Lifehacker, Forbes, Fortune and several other sources, reading about the latest from both Technology and Business world. Recently, I have developed this very new interest or liking, whatever you wanna call, towards Biking. I own a Montra Jazza (street bike) and love riding early morning with my new friends who share similar interest. A big Chelsea fan who also takes interest in Cricket and TT and several other games like Snooker, Counter-Strike and Carrom. Love watching movies and TV seasons, favorites being Friends and The Big Bang Theory. During my leisure I also like to compose lyrics, the glimpse of which you will get as u scroll down this page.

Not an avid book reader but still like them while travelling. Have read some of them, like Five Point Someone, One night @ Call Centre, You can Win -Shiv Khera, Angels and Demons.

My favorite activity being SLEEPING, once I slept for a record-breaking 23 hours at a stretch.

My Compositions

As I mentioned earlier I'm also into composing Lyrics, here are few you may go through:

I remember when I composed my first song, I went to a friend of mine(Debdip) with the same. He is a great musician. We used to call him the D.R. Rahman of our College. He really encouraged me and asked me to compose another song for which he said he'll give music. And then I came out with this :

आवारा समझो,
या पागल समझो,
या फ़िर समझो मुझे तुम दीवाना,
तू भले ही मुझे अब अपना न माने,
पर तुझे मैंने अपना माना...

जिस दिन से मैंने तुझको जाना,
तुझको मन से अपना माना,
तू ही अब मेरी जीवन ज्योति,
तुझे ही इसे अब है जलाना,
गर तू इसे ना जलाती है,
तो फ़िर मैंने मर जाना,
सच कह रहा हूँ इसे झूठ न समझो...

Repeat 1st para...

तुझको पहली बार देखा तो,
भूल गया मैं सारा ज़माना,
तेरी अदाओं का बन गया कायल,
और तेरे चेहरे का दीवाना,
दिन भर भटकता हूँ,
तुझे धुन्धता हूँ,
कहे मुझे पागल सारा ज़माना,
मेरे इस पागल प्यार को समझो...

Repeat 1st para....

Another one...It's called "GIVE ME A BREAK"....

Give Me A Break

Please give me a break

From this busy life
Please give me a break..
From the life's every odd surprise
Please give me a break..

From all the false emotions
Please give me a break..
From any materialistic attraction
Please give me a break..

From this grieved heart
Please give me a break..
From the life's saddest part
Please give me a break..

From this long tiring journey
Please give me a break..
From so much of scrutiny
Please give me a break..

From this prolonged silence
Please give me a break
From this persistent quietness
Please give me a break

I want my mouth to shout
I want my eyes to see
I want my ears to perceive
I want myself to live

No more false emotions
No more false reck
Free me from all this
Please give me a break
