Testing 1, 2, 3...

Hello World !!. :)
How have you all been..?? Im great.  Having a great weekend…:) and I hope u are having a good one as well..
Today there was a program at Nehru maidan , Mangalore titled Rayaratha, to commemorate 500 years of the rise and fall of the Vjayanagara kingdom. Organized by the Karnataka tourism department and local municipal officials, this program was using the power of humans voices and a spectacular light show on a constructed set to showcase the times of Vijayanagara. It so happened that my family and I reached there on time to listen to “Mic testing 1,2,3….”… and the light bulb glew… :D

My immediate thought was “dude – everything begins with testing”..
Don’t believe  me??
The waterfall of ideas continue… 
This is how I voice it…

Buying a new vehicle?? – Im sure you will go for a TEST ride/TEST drive…
You cook?? You will TEST it on yourself before u take it near your loved ones…  :D
Getting a new cell-phone… everyone  tries out the demo sets. TESTING
Buying any new electronic items?? One word – Demo TESTING
Buying Jewellery??  Trying it out on yourself ?? TESTING
Trying a new flavor of Ice-Cream for the first time?? TESTING
Met someone at a function and trying to have a conversation..??  TESTING a relationship.
At a marriageable age?? Arranged marriage?? Meeting guys/girls??  TESTING(single meaning only)
Looking for furniture for your home, you will TEST the comfort of any given piece.
Ever tried out different cloth items at a clothing store?? Trial rooms?? – TESTING
Got a new hairstyle?? – well that’s experimenting but it’s a variation of TESTING :)
The armed forces looking for new equipment?? - TESTING
Trying out new pair of shoes before you buy them?? - TESTING
Eating a small piece of fruit/sweet at market before taking home some?? - TESTING

Well, the list goes on…
By the way, the Punch line!!

I’m Proud to be a Software Testing Professional !! Due to whom software everywhere need not be tried for performance & functionality by the user, but will be tested for him/her by professionals like me. :)

PS: The light show really was spectacular… light and sound effects were really great.. :) Good to see such good things are happening in good old Mangalore... :)
