We all have been there, Monday morning blues and any night hangovers are the worst enemies of a company’s HR. Usually, people work through it but sometimes you find these ‘people’ who love to make epic excuses to get out of coming to work. Interestingly, for some of the low-lives at OMLogic, we like coming to office when we are sick since this is the only place we get to relax!
1. Pet me dard hai (I have a stomach ache) Favourite Monday morning excuse, for all the weekend party ravers.
2. Ghar me koi beemar hai (Someone fell ill at home) The one excuse you can never say ... Read More...
Hard to imagine it’s been 10 years. 10 years when
some of us against all the odds took on a setup with Rs 2 lacs of revenue, Rs 5
lacs of expenditure and an outgoing set of people doing frauds and everything
else to bring us down.
While some will look at us as a modest setup, what we have achieved during these 10 years is miraculous considering where it all started and what all we refused to do. This is the first of a series of wow-logs we will write over the next few days in the run-up to our 10 years.
We take pride as one of the most ethically
driven, trustworthy company, which alw... Read More...
George Washington had 100’s of human slaves. Blacks that were part of his property. Yet, he is one of the most renowned libertarians of all time. Yet, he is one of the founding fathers of the place we know as United States of America.
Here, locally in India, I used to jump traffic lights when I was in college. I don’t anymore. It was illegal then and it is illegal now. However, it was socially acceptable then and it is much less so now. Some other stuff I have done in that age may now be considered downright filthy but I am not ashamed of it. It was me back then and it doesn’t take away... Read More...
The dream of a two-party system seems not so far away. It is undoubtedly because of BJP’s relentless efforts to appease the Gods above. Seems like the beef ban, or the ‘tapasya’ we all endured when we stood in those long ATM lines during demonetization - everything has contributed to the arrival of a day we think (read: hope) we’re going to witness soon. A two-party democratic India.
When the saffron-clad party won the 2014 elections, they changed the political landscape dramatically by becoming the first political party to win a majority in the last 25 years. While a lot was promi... Read More...
Saw something in the morning and started thinking about the concept of suicide: Ending one’s life of your own wish. While most people think of suicide as cowardly, I completely disagree.
In my view, suicide is perhaps one of the most courageous acts one could perform. Unless, it is caused by a chemical imbalance. In case of a chemical imbalance, suicide is not cowardly, it is out of one’s own control and becomes a more natural phenomenon.
Human brain is wired to be the most efficient towards oneself. Survival being the key. Taking extraneous chemicals out, a human will do everything ... Read More...
We Indians have always been proud of our morals, ethics and beliefs. With a glorious history of religion and worship behind our back, we have traversed the same disciplines into our way of life. Some recent events (you know which ones), make it evident that our loyalty and trust, when it comes to worshiping our Gods or Godmen or Cricket, remains unparallel. Anything and everything that deviates from this collective national identity needs to be punished. We live in a culture of hooliganism, mobs and judgmentalism, where righteousness entails to be the way of life.
EXCEPT, when it comes to c... Read More...
Today is Women’s Day! A day to either celebrate the might of 50% of the human population or, to rue over the exploits of 50% of the human population.
The intention of both need to be identical. Creating the right place for women in the society. Please note, I didn’t say equal. Men and women are not equal.
Now that I have your angry attention, let me highlight the fundamental issues I see with feminists today. Looks like all that the feminists of India (perhaps the whole world) are on this ultimate mission to get added privileges, reservations and incentives for women. I call this #Co... Read More...
A political party that once controlled the country. A political party whose proud history is parallel to the history of the country, not to mention the two blurring together at times. The Indian National Congress also known as the ‘Grand Old Party’ has seen a golden period.
Navjot Singh Sidhu is right when he says, “Sonia (Gandhi) ji ka koi tol nahi, koi mol nahi.” From being a foreigner widow of an ex-PM to the most powerful person in the Indian political scene, nobody has achieved more than Sonia Gandhi.
Please note, there was no one from the Gandhi family in active politics ... Read More...
Much has been said over Sridevi’s death and the news coverage around it.
The News: Sridevi died on 24th feb, 2018 in her hotel room in Dubai
Coverage 1: Why she died, how she died, murder or natural, alcohol, diet plans, cosmetic surgeries, pills, etc etc.
Coverage 2: Why is media covering the Sridevi story so much? I heard a radio channel doing the coverage of this ‘why’ with the same fun, frolic, engagement as they would do any other news.
NOW, let’s get real. Sorrow, anger, hate are all human emotions just like happiness and love. These are needed as a distraction from t... Read More...
