Me & My Boss

1 comments

When I take a long time, I am slow.

When my boss takes a long time, he is thorough.

When I don't do it, I am lazy.
When my boss doesn't do it, he is too busy.

When I do something without being told, I am trying to be smart.
When my boss does the same, that is initiative.

When I please my boss, I am ass-kissing.
When my boss pleases his boss, he is co-operating.

When I do good, my boss never remembers.
When I do wrong, he never forgets.

When I make a mistake, I am an idiot.
When my boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When I am out of the office, I am wandering around.
When my boss is out of the office, he's on business.

Engineers Vs Doctors

8 comments
There are 7 Engineers and 7 Doctors going from PUNE to Mumbai.
So they all gather at Pune Station. Both groups are desperately trying to prove
their superiority.

Scene 1 (PUNE- MUMBAI)

So 7 engineers take only 1 Ticket amongst them and 7 doctors buy all 7
tickets. Doctors are desperately waiting for TC to come...... When TC
arrives , All 7 Engineers get in one toilet SO when TC knocks , one hand
come out with the ticket and the TC goes away....

NOW on return Journey All of them don't get a direct train to PUNE So
they all decide to take a Passenger till Lonavala, from there they Can
easily get a LOCAL to PUNE so the passenger.....

SCENE 2 (MUMBAI - LONAVALA)

Doctors decide, "this time we will prove that we too are equally
SHAANE"....All 7 Doctors take 1 Ticket amongst them Engineers don't buy
any ticket at all!!!!!
..TC arrives....
ALL DOCTORS IN ONE TOILET.ALL ENGINEERS IN THE OPPOSITE ONE..
One engineer gets out and knocks the door of Doctors toilet,
One hand comes with the tickets, he takes the ticket
and comes in engg Bathroom...TC DRIVES out ALL the doctors from the
toilet and they are heavily fined........the local....

SCENE 3 (LONAVALA - PUNE)

SO now both the group on LONAVALA station. Doctors planning their Move
for last chance.. they board the local to Pune. This time doctors decide
that they will play the same (1 ticket) trick. ALL Doctors take
1 tickets...Engineers BUY all 7 tickets this time... SO TC Comes.. All
Engineers show their tickets..... Doctors are still searching for toilet
in the LOCAL...........

To ensure that everybody has a good chance of winning, groups of 3 people will be formed by draw of lots and the guessing game will be played by each group of 3 people.

Each of the 3 players has to guess a different price. Everybody else can freely suggest prices to help / confuse the players ;-)

Looking forward to having a great time with all of you tomorrow.

Essence of Trust

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.

The father was kind of scared. So he asked his little daughter,
"Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river."

The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand."

"What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father.

"There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go."

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs...

This story is too short..........but carries a lot of feelings.........its the best thing.

Our Heritage

0 comments

After coming to Hyderabad I realized how I, as a Mumbaikar, am more aware of British culture, architecture and heritage (the English language, the railway system, the buildings in South Mumbai) than the much more vast and ancient Indian culture, heritage, and architecture!

Here in Hyderabad, as in many parts of India, most of our heritage has and is being encroached upon by squatters (including by thoughtless sarkari offices) or just falling into ruin. It's mind boggling how we don't appreciate and preserve our own heritage.

A few weeks back the Maharani of Jodhpur visited Hyderabad and was shocked at how most of the heritage of the royalty of the former Hyderabad state had fallen into ruin with the neglect at the hands of the Govt./ASI. Apparently, she wanted to take over at least one of the ruined former palaces (King Kothi) to be able to restore it.

However there is some hope. People are becoming more aware and some of the buildings are gradually being restored. I recently visited one of the palace complexes of the former royalty (Nizams) called "Chow Mahalla" parts of which have been restored and some of the artifacts, historical information and photos put up in exhibition rooms. It gives a fascinating insight to a bygone era of our history and culture. I was struck by how different life is now. But, I was struck even more by how much of our past culture, thinking and way of life we still carry in ourselves (even though the buildings are falling into ruin) because, at the core, we still are the same people with much of the changes being superficial. Our culture (sanskar or tehzeeb, whatever you might call it) is much stronger than we might think!

I was amazed by how many heritage structures (palaces, forts, mosques, temples, tombs, parks, etc.) this place has. Some of this is preserved in the form of hospitals, schools, colleges, museums and through other initiatives by the royal families and other private parties.

I had been to Aurangabad about 2 years back and I was heartened by how there is a concerted and careful initiative by the govt. (supported by other parties) to systematically restore and preserve that vital heritage site of our country. Aurangabad, and the surrounding area, has some of our most ancient and amazing (UNESCO designated) heritage sites such as:

The Ajanta Caves comprising ancient Buddhist, Jain, & Hindu caves depicting the life and culture of those times through paintings and sculptures. These are located in an isolated horseshoe shaped ravine and the place is magical. I did not feel like leaving the place and still get goose-bumps thinking about it!

The Ellora Caves comprising ancient Buddhist, Jain, & Hindu caves depicting the life and culture of those times through sculptures.

The impregnable Daulatabad Fort (Devagiri in ancient times) which was never conquered by any enemy.

The "Bibi Ka Maqbara" (the Taj of the South) which Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb's son built in memory of his Mother.

The ancient Aurangabad caves comprising 10 neglected caves on the outskirts of and overlooking the city.

The tomb of Emperor Aurangzeb. What strikes one about this tomb is it's simplicity! It's just a mud grave with a marble jaali around it, which was added by the British because they felt it was too simple and unassuming for an Emperor!

Just being in such places and imagining what kind of life our ancestors must have led transports me into a different world and gives me a different perspective on the life we lead now. Sometimes, I wish I was born in more ancient times, life was simpler then!

One way in which we are definitely different from our ancestors is the extent to which we are dependent on things, conveniences and technologies!

Life is Wonderful - It's All About Correcting Mistakes!!!

0 comments
Priya married Hitesh this day. At the end of the wedding party, Priya's mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook.
With Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother: 'Priya, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When there's something happy and memorable happened in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the line. The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I've done the first one for you today. Do the others with Hitesh.When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you've had.'

Priya shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They both thought it was a great idea and were anxious to know when the second deposit can be made.

This was what they did after certain time:
- 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage
- 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Priya
- 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali
- 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Priya got pregnant
- 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Hitesh got promoted
...... and so on...

However, after years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial things.They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the most nasty people in the world.... no more love...Kind of typical nowadays, huh?

One day Priya talked to her Mother:
'Mom, we can't stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how I decided to marry this guy!!!'

Mother: 'Sure, girl, that's no big deal. Just do whatever you want if you really can't stand it. But before that, do one thing first. Remember the saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take out all money and spend it first. You shouldn't keep any record of such a poor marriage.'

Priya thought it was true. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue and planning to cancel the account. While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked,and looked, and looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy and happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She left and went home. When she was home, she handed the passbook to Hitesh, asked him to spend the money before getting divorce.

The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Priya. She found a new deposit of Rs.5000.
And a line next to the record:
'This is the day I notice how much I've loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness you've brought me.'

They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe.
Do you know how much money they had saved when they retired?
I did not ask.I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru all the good years in their life.

"When you fall, in any way,
Don't see the place where you fell,
Instead see the place from where you slipped.

Coffee Winner!

Joke Alsatian

(Coffee Sponsor: Mr. Diwant Vaidya)

Runners Up!
Sarada - Chinese v Spielberg
Parvez - Marketing Lessons at a Party.
(Coffee Sponsors: Java Team)


Joke From Imtiaz:

An Alsatian went to a telegram office, took out a blank form and wrote,
"Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof."

The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog:
"There are only nine words here. You could send another ‘Woof’ for the same price."

"But," the dog replied, "that would make no sense at all."

Joke from Sarada:

A Chinese walks into a bar in America late one night and he saw Steven Spielberg.

As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to him, and asks for his autograph.

Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says, "You Chinese people bombed our Pearl Habour, get outta here."

The astonished Chinese man replied, "It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbour, it was the Japanese".

"Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're all the same," replied Spielberg.

In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says, "You sank the Titanic, my forefathers were on that ship."

Shocked, Spielberg replies, "It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me."

The Chinese replies, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the same."


Joke from Parvez:

A Professor at one of the IIM's (INDIA) was explaining marketing
concepts to the Students:-

1. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" - That's Direct Marketing

2. You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a gorgeous girl. One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says: "He's very rich. Marry him." - That's Advertising

3. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say: "Hi, I'm very rich. Marry me." - That's Telemarketing

4. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl. You get up and straighten your tie, you walk up to her and pour her a drink, you open the door (of the car) for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her ride and then say:" By the way, I'm rich. Will you marry me?" - That's Public Relations

5. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl. She walks up to you and says: "You are very rich! Can you marry Me!?" - That's Brand Recognition

6. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. - That's Customer Feedback

7. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" And she introduces you to her husband. - That's demand and supply gap

8. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say anything, another person come and tells her: "I'm rich. Will you marry me?" And she goes with him - That's competition eating into your market share

9. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say: "I'm rich, Marry me!" your wife arrives. - That's restriction for entering new markets

Bar Stool Economics - Our Tax System Explained

0 comments

Our Tax System Explained:

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. 'Since you are all such good customers,' he said, 'I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.' Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free.

But what about the other six men - the paying customers?
How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?'

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer.

So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

'I only got a dollar out of the $20,'declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,' but he got $10!'

'Yeah, that's right,' exclaimed the fifth man. 'I only saved a dollar, too.

It's unfair that he got ten times more than I got' 'That's true!!' shouted the seventh man. 'Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!'

'Wait a minute,' yelled the first four men in unison. 'We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!'

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.
For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know....
that the acknowledgment of your weakness is the first

Thomas Kempis said that, and he was right.
Sometimes this is the hardest thing for people to do.
Yet self-truth and truth with others about where you have fallen short
almost ensures that you will go a long way.
Everyone can see you anyway, why not admit what everyone is seeing?

You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it.

Rules of the competition:
Submit a joke as a comment below. One joke per person so make sure to put your best joke. I will only count the most recent entry per person. Post the comment using your Kensium email id. On Friday I will read the jokes (so submit deadline is Friday 0:00:00:01, which is one second after Thursday midnight). Whichever joke I like the best will get a free coffee for the author.

Deadline:
Friday 0:00, 0 min, 1 sec (1 second into Friday, aka 1 second after Thursday night midnight)

How to submit:
As a comment for this blog entry.

Limit:
1 joke -- I will count the most recently submitted one for your Kensium email id.

A: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.
E: This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but
many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory
that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.

An Introduction to IPR & Patents

3 comments

Hi Everybody!

I invite you to attend a 1.5 hour session entitled "IPR - Why and What?" to be led by Parvez Kudrolli (from the Intellectual Property Dept) on Wednesday, 10th Dec, 2008 from 2pm to 3.30pm.

IPR stands for Intellectual Property Rights such as Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks & Geographical Indications (GI).

Most of you would have heard about IPR & patents in the media and will be wondering what all the fuss is about. Some of you are worried that the western countries are stealing our traditional and modern knowledge & Intellectual Property and also that the multinational pharmaceutical companies are out to deny vital medicines to Indian patients by patenting everything. Some Indians are outraged that American companies are patenting Basmati Rice, Turmeric (Haldi) etc.!

So, if you have questions like, What is IPR / Patent? Should I be knowing more about IPR? How can IPR make a difference to my life, my work and my company? Where does India stand in this game?, and other such questions, this is your chance to ask and find out. This session will be interactive & fun and you can ask Parvez any question. No prior knowledge of IPR is required to participate.

Date: 10th December 2008

Time: 2.00 PM – 3.30 PM

Venue: Kensium Conference Room

I am sure all of you will take this opportunity and participate in this event.


Thank you,

Imtiaz A

Kensium Team Events

For most of us, "Kensium Team Outing" is still fresh in our minds & from what I have heard, if an opportunity arises, we would like to go and indulge in similar type of activities again & again. However with our busy personal and professional lives, it is not possible for a lot of us. BUT, we can try to mix some FUN at work place & with work as well to compensate for the missed opportunities… you don’t believe me….hmmmm.. too bad, as we are about to prove you wrong!!!


Entertainment and Fun are a necessary part of our lives. All of us go through some kind of stress everyday and continuous stress drains out the energy and causes us to lose motivation, and may even affect our health. Having some sort of recreation or fun rejuvenates the entire system and also pumps in lost energy, and also assists in team building. So, let's have some fun events at work place!

Kensium will now have a team to fuel our spirits with these fun events on every 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month from 12 noon onwards. Events will be conducted on the floor, where everyone will be an audience as well as a participant.

To share your thoughts & ideas, we have created a Kensium Blog site …you can post all your crazy thoughts & ideas. You can post anything you want on this blog… jokes, funny pictures, events, updates… anything that you want to share with Team Kensium!


Guys & Gals…We welcome your IDEAs about team games, fun games, simple games, simple games which can be played on the floor with minimum efforts. If you want to talk about anything interesting such as a team outing, team lunch or dinner or anything that has more of US & less of I, please share them with this team & we will have it as an event on one of the Saturdays. Please keep these posts professional, as this is a public site.


We have a task on hand ….got to have a name & a punch line for our team …please suggest suitable names & catchy punch lines on the blog… the name & punch line should reflect the spirit of Team Kensium…there will be a special prize for the person who’s suggested name or punch line will been picked!!

Meet you people on the floor for the fun games!!!

"We see the world not as it is, but as we are."
-- Ken Keyes


***************

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

The realities of life result from many outside factors, none of which you can control.
Your attitude, however, reflects the way in which you evaluate what's happening to you.

It is not your situation,
it's your reaction to the situation that's important.
Things always seem to turn out best for those people who can make the best out of the way things turn out.

Life at any time can become difficult.
Life at any time can become easy.
It all depends upon how you adjust yourself to life.
You cannot always control your circumstances.
But you can always think positive thoughts.

There is nothing either good or bad,
only your thinking makes it so.
