Following Global industry standards....a farce

TCS has reduced the number of days of vacation an employee can avail from 22 to 16 and this is towards accepting global standards.... (Actually aimed at improving productivity...hehe, i doubt if the desired result wuld be achieved)

What a farce this is...

Globally remuneration paid to employees are on a hourly basis. Any extra hour worked after regular work timings shall be at extra cost. With such a system, neither the employee nor the employer has reason to complain of over work or over paid for less work. And the employee has enough time for himself. Happy with 15 days of "guaranteed" vacation time...all for himself.

But works for 16 hours or 12 hours the salary paid is same. And you are "expected" to work extra time. else you are an alien. With such standards of work, how can TCS decide to empbrace only one aspect of global standards.

All these are the ill-effects of Globalization and race to provide cost-competitive solutions.

Written with due-regards for TCS as an emerging giant in the Global Software domain.

HCL and Infosys are not far behind

To tell you...

I like not only to be loved,
but also to be told that I am loved.
I am not sure that you are of the same mind.
But the realm of silence
is large enough beyond the grave.
This is the world of light and speech,
and I shall take leave to tell you that
you are very dear

What about Magnetism...

"A magnetized piece of steel will lift about twelve times its own weight and if you demagnetize this same piece of steel, it will not even lift a feather".
...taken from a book.

The magnet could sometimes be 'money', many times 'power', most of the times 'determination', but nothing to match the magic of 'Love' and 'Dedication'.
...not taken from any book, straight apne dil se.

I wish i could....

Worried and troubled by a particular picture i saw today....posted by one of my best friends.

It is wanting to tell something to the whole world. I dont know the reason behind it and i am unable to do anything about it. A wait and watch situation.
A feeling of helplessness and desperation has engulfed me.

There is also some kind of a time-deadline attached to adds more fuel to the fire. Its totally puzzling.

It feels as if i have gone back a couple of decades in time...unable to establish contact. Mobile, email, messenger all of no use.

I wish i could understand what the problem is.
I wish i could do something, if there is a crisis.

My ears are yearning to listen to this friend. The least bit i could do is....lend my ears.

Hope the situation is not as bad as i assume, sitting here so far away, in darkness.

Waiting for your call dear!!
