Working late.

A typical scene in any multinational company :

Employee – “Sir, may I leave for the day?”

Boss *looks at the clock* – “It’s only 6:00 P.M. Did you finish that report I asked you to?”

Employee – “Yes sir.”

Boss – Sigh. *looks around desperately for 5 mins and then gives an evil grin* “Take a look at this report done by a new joinee. You will find mistakes so finish this up and then you may leave”.

Employee – *looks at the 200 page report, imagines a parallel universe where he can beat the shit out of his boss and get away with it and then finally orders dinner*.

People who are unemployed – We need to talk.

The election that wasn’t

*I wanted to get this post out there before Ashish Shakya’s weekly column comes out and makes all the following write ups’ look like dog shit*

The big fat south Indian wedding preparations – Part 1

You know how it works in India – boy meets parents, parents fall in love with boy, parents arrange their girl’s marriage with boy and boy and girl live happily ever after.

The information SCAM!!!

Okay, I AM ANGRY! and angry me is very hard to convince or to reason with. If I have a dark side, then this is IT!

Yes, I am talking about those gazillion websites out there preaching the great gospel of unlocking and jailbreaking an iPhone. The only teeny-tiny formality to be fulfilled to get the so called “risk free service” is making a payment of $30-$40, which in INR comes to about Rs.1500-Rs.2200.
