I write ideas that strike me, sometimes just to remember them later, and just once in a while, you might find something useful. :-)

Transfer v/s Resignation

The transfer I requested is getting to be really expensive. Instead of giving treat to my friends, now I have to give treat to some managers, to whom I have never spoken to, just because they had to give the approval for the transfer. Of course, they are not going to say anything if I don’t give them a treat, but from what I heard they expect a treat, and if I don’t, then who knows what they are going to say to the managers under whom I will be working? Are we still living in the old age, where landlords used to get gifts of appreciation? What is it for, just for boosting their ego? If on the other hand, had I just resigned then things would have been so simple. I leave the company and join a new company at a higher salary. I would be giving a …

Lonely in a crowd

It gives me great pride to say that no one has linked to my blog. I am not being sarcastic or melodramatic. This is the true feeling from my heart. When I see the thousands of page views some bloggers get, I sometimes wonder, whether I could be as good as that some day, nah, never!!! But then, it doesn’t make me sad or disappointed as it should. May I just like being alone so much, that I crave that loneliness even online. Of course there are some strong feelings that I expressed that I would like to shout at the world, and ask them, are you blind? But most of the posts are just for myself, just to read when I want to remember a feeling that I had earlier. Maybe later sometime I may start another blog where I can talk about the things I want the world …

What am I missing?

The past two weeks had been pretty eventful. One of my best friend got married. Was she really such a best friend? She was to me, but what was I to her? When I look back now, I realize that I always knew what I was to her, and I had jokingly referred myself to her so. It used to upset her so. Little did I realize that I was hurting her, even if for a joke, bringing out the glaring truth. Was it the truth that hurt her, or my ignorance of the truth? The truth is that I was what Malayali’s call “Kariveppila”, aka, curry leaves. The marriage was a huge success, as she got to marry the guy she was in love with for years with both of their parents’ blessings. But my participation in the marriage, I feel, was a huge mistake. I had one week …

Eventful days

It took my cousin’s solicitation to visit his blog to remind me that I too had a blog. Unknown to him, I already knew he had a blog, and had setup my RSS reader to pick it up, right onto my desktop. Strange, I seem to know what everyone assumes no one knows, but is not aware of what everyone else would surely know. I remember telling another cousin that I knew her better than she thought I did. It is so obviously untrue, yes I knew her better than she thought I did, but even then I know I don’t know her as well I should know my cousin. Now, why would I have ever said something as corny as that? The client I serve has come up with a novel approach to make the customer experience better, Behavioral Analytics. And for that they have invested millions on a …
