Fear of Salary Cuts and My views

Tue, 03 Feb 2009 05:53:00 +0000

Last weekend I was angry and full of frustration when i came to know about the news of salary cuts in my company. To prevent my self from acting impulsively I gave my self time to think to intrepret. I am still fearful as I don't know the % of cut I am hoping it be the least possible.

Here what I went through:

My first reaction was why now ........ the recession has not even touched the bottom .. till yesterday evening I was of this view then I thought about it you have to prepare yourself before the war , a company needs to have some cash surplus to avoid the bottom. 
If say bottom comes out in May-June which most of the economists etc are saying , if we take measures in June, we might not be at good position at that time. But if measures are taken now the company may survive. Now I am thinking as a businessman prespective not from engineer perspective, deflation is expected in US and India in may there will be credit crunch and time will become terrible in few months so every company has the right to take measures to survive. Even as a CEO I wouldn't like to fire people if other measures are possible. So the company is taking such measures. 

Initially I was thinking from the prespective of other companies like TCS and Infy as in they are not doing such drastic measures why we, but mine is a small company which doesn't have deep pockets like the big5. 

Some anonymous guy posted about the trips of management to US and sales hiring in my earlier post. Eventhough I have commented there but again mentioning here. 
A trip to US may cost some money but we have to try and pitch for projects and to take feedback from customers to improve. I have seen some managers have gone onsite and brought projects which brough huge revenues to the company. 
Sales people left in the past year and the company needed new guys , It was bad luck of the company that the incident happened before the trouble began and money is to be used to make a sales team. As a engineer I may think that why now hiring ,we should save cash now but as a businessman and CEO I want to make a team which will get us projects and when the recession is over or the troubled times is over the team can get us projects.

In short I would like to say that when we think from engineer perspective we will be angry but when we think from businessman we can link the points. 

The biggest irony of this time is that mistakes of few financial guys (IBankers and other bank guys) have brought the whole world to a standstill. To write the reasons for the crises I will write one long post.


I have realized one think in the past 2 years that I should keep my eyes and ears open for any idea so that if I like that idea I can start to work on that on my own. I want to come out of this rat race soon as this will happen everywhere and now and than.
I want to do something really passionately but I don't know now what and I don't know now what I am passionate about but as Steve Jobs said in his standford speech we need to keep looking that day will come.

Enough of philosophy save save save us may the cut is less.








Salary Cuts in My Company

Mon, 02 Feb 2009 03:40:00 +0000

As you are aware, we are currently faced with one of the most challenging global economic conditions that has led to one of the worst recessions in the United States over the last eighty years. All organizations (private, public, government) are taking drastic steps to survive through this period. The downturn has hit hard and its toll has been felt widely. Indian IT companies have been adversely effected in significant manner because of the slowdown in tech spending in the U.S. How long this will last or how deep the impact of the recession will be, is anyone's guess.


AAA has also felt the effects of this economic downturn. In the last quarter our growth has come under pressure as our customers face similar challenges and are aggressively reducing their outsourcing budget.

AAA has already taken steps to cut expenses where ever possible without impacting customer service or quality - be it closing down offices in US as appropriate, reviewing and revising contracts with our suppliers, reducing operational expenses etc. We have also taken steps to increase productivity and efficiency so that the employees remain relevant and current with the role and organizational requirements. We have changed the leadership in US and are rebuilding the sales team.

The most challenging task will be to sustain a meaningful level of operation through the next twelve months. It will call for hard decisions on the part of the management teams. The priority is to operate cost-effectively and conserve cash.

AAA has decided, among other measures, to reduce salaries across the entire company both in the US and India starting from 1st February 2009. These actions are necessary to ensure we meet the costs of the enterprise to sustain functioning of the organization. Each employee will receive an individualized letter with the revised salary details shortly.

I understand that this action calls for a sacrifice from you and I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your unique contribution to the Company. We have made it through the dot com bust earlier and I am confident that we will get past this downturn too with flying color with your support. We would like to hear suggestions from you, on additional measures we can implement to ensure most efficient and effective use of our resources while maintaining the highest possible levels of customer service. Please feel free to speak with me, your manager, human resources or any member of the Executive Team.

We will need to innovate, synergize our strengths, and operate most cost effectively in line with current level of market demand. I look forward to your help in building the Company.

CEO
AAA Company



CRR, SLR , Repo , Reverse Repo Rates Definitions

Wed, 24 Dec 2008 07:09:00 +0000

These are taken from this site as its was posted by the author. Thanks to IAS mentor Repo (Repurchase) Rate Repo rate is the rate at which banks borrow funds from the RBI to meet the gap between the demand they are facing for money (loans) and how much they have on hand to lend. If the RBI wants to make it more expensive for the banks to borrow money, it increases the repo rate; similarly, if it wants to make it cheaper for banks to borrow money, it reduces the repo rate. Reverse Repo Rate This is the exact opposite of repo rate. The rate at which RBI borrows money from the banks (or banks lend money to the RBI) is termed the reverse repo rate. The RBI uses this tool when it feels there is too much money floating in the banking system If the reverse repo rate is increased, it means the RBI will borrow money from the bank and offer them a lucrative rate of interest. As a result, banks would prefer to keep their money with the RBI (which is absolutely risk free) instead of lending it out (this option comes with a certain amount of risk) Consequently, banks would have lesser funds to lend to their customers. This helps stem the flow of excess money into the economy Reverse repo rate signifies the rate at which the central bank absorbs liquidity from the banks, while repo signifies the rate at which liquidity is injected. Bank Rate This is the rate at which RBI lends money to other banks (or financial institutions . The bank rate signals the central bank’s long-term outlook on interest rates. If the bank rate moves up, long-term interest rates also tend to move up, and vice-versa. Banks make a profit by borrowing at a lower rate and lending the same funds at a higher rate of interest. If the RBI hikes the bank rate (this is currently 6 per cent), the interest that a bank pays for borrowing money (banks borrow money either from each other or from the RBI) increases. It, in turn, hikes its own lending rates to ensure it continues to make a profit. Call Rate Call rate is the interest rate paid by the banks for lending and borrowing for daily fund requirement. Si nce banks need funds on a daily basis, they lend to and borrow from other banks according to their daily or short-term requirements on a regular basis. CRR Also called the cash reserve ratio, refers to a portion of deposits (as cash) which banks have to keep/maintain with the RBI. This serves two purposes. It ensures that a portion of bank deposits is totally risk-free and secondly it enables that RBI control liquidity in the system, and thereby, inflation by tying their hands in lending money SLR Besides the CRR, banks are required to invest a portion of their deposits in government securities as a part of their statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) requirements. What SLR does is again restrict the bank’s leverage in pumping more money into the economy.Source of this post is : IAS Mentor[...]



Great Depression - 1929

Wed, 24 Dec 2008 03:33:00 +0000

1. During the 20's after the WW-1 production rose in industries, but incomes didn't rise in a similar fashion
2. Top .1% income was equal to the bottom 42% of the population
3. There was a huge imbalance or maldistribution of wealth
4. Fed government cut tax rates specially of the rich people
5. Increased production created an increase in supply as compared to the demand
6. People specially the poor were encouraged to buy on credit
7. Other factor which kept the economy up was lavish spending or luxury spending by the top 1% rich people
8. There were only two major industries around which the whole of the economy revolved - Automobile industry and Radio industry
9. During the world war one farming was encouraged as whole of europe and america was to be fed. Farmers were given high prices and were asked to buy more and more land. After the war the policies changed , farmers debt increased and prices tumbled
10. Automobile and Radio industry fell as they couldn't expand after some extent and with 70% of the population dependent on agriculture economy fell apart
11. US tariffs were very high for other countries to export to US and global trade which could have lifted europe, australia after the world war-1 was not much relevant
12. Shares also went high on speculation from 100 - 420 and any person could buy shares on credit , e.g by investing his $10 and getting $75 on credit he could have brought shares. Return were very high due to speculation .......... markets went high and high and one day fell and due to panic all started selling their shares

Great Depression had begun ...................................................

NIA & UAPA

Mon, 22 Dec 2008 03:51:00 +0000

Government of India after the attacks on Mumbai have acted like never before in passing the two laws namely setting up of a National Intelligence Agency and Unlawful Activities Prevention Amendment Act in a matter of 2 weeks. I feel this must be the fastest a law has been made.

First of all what would be the functions of NIA:

• NIA is first of all will not be under the jurisdiction of State governments, It can take charge of terror activities without the consent of state concerned. CBI had to take permissions of the state government to act. So In short if will be like the Homeland security if we go to USA.
• NIA can set up special fast track courts for speedy trials.
(still searching for more functions.......)

UAPA:
• It denies bail to foreigners accused in terror cases e.g Kasav like people can be detained for longer duration.
• Bails to Indians will be granted only after courts hear the case.
• Another provision is if a person is found with explosives the onus will be on him to prove his innocence.
• Another important feature will be that the duration of the custody or remand is increased from 15 days to 30 days.

But again the questions arises setting up an law is not enough we need officers and money for new instruments. CBI, IB and CID are already short staffed. What is done nowadays in case of states is if any police officer is creating trouble for a VIP he is transferred to CID. This is not the right way we need right persons for the right job.
CBI is having shortage of 1/3rd of its staff, they say good applicants are hard to find by. Where are the funds to buy latest forensic equipments, to teach them about the cyber crime, to teach them about the new un conventional way used by terrorists?

We are trying to tackle the terror attacks by land, air and sea but what about attacks from cyber space. If we are attacked on a big scale say like websites of many banks getting hacked are we prepared for such attack.

Another issues is of budgeting FBI has a budget of around 7.1 billion dollars and on the contrary expenditure by central government on policing is just 3 billion dollars.

Strict terror laws are not the only way through which we can control terror. Though I agree that there was a need for the centralized agency to tackle menace like terror, but these laws should not go the way POTA and TADA went. Major causalities during these laws were the common men, they were caught by the police beaten, tortured to accept that they are terrorists.
Many students in Hyderabad were arrested, tortured and finally they were released by court after 6 months, but they lost their jobs and college admissions meanwhile.

Point is laws should not be misused. If we can control terror in Punjab we can control it everywhere, what is needed is will , free hand to the police officers, no more vote bank politics like removing the ban on SIMI.

We will get to know in few months whether this law and agency is helpful or its a just another notional agency with only name and without any members.



Fragile Indian Coasts

Mon, 22 Dec 2008 03:30:00 +0000

Recent attacks on Mumbai have raised concerns about the fragile coastline, Southern India which was supposed to be a safer from terrorist attacks is no longer safe now, thanks to the long fragile coastline. New agencies are coming up to tackle terror menace but the real problem lie somewhere else.Indian fishermen while fishing mistakenly and intentionally cross the sea border to fish in sea waters of Pakistan. These poor are arrested there and their boats are captured. Some 200 Indian boats are missing, when Indian delegation visited Pakistan in the month of October and enquired about the boats, no one was willing to tell but somehow they came to know that the boats are auctioned at throw away prices. A 20 lakhs rupees boat is auctioned at around 2-3 lakhs. This is very dangerous in context of terror attacks as we all know the 10 terrorists who attacked Mumbai came to India via an Indian boat Kuber which was captured according to GPS signals in Pakistani waters.Chances of Indian boat in Pakistani hands going unchecked are very bright. Casualness of Indian intelligence and Gujarat police is so high that they hardly care to question the fishermen who after spending 1-2 years in Pakistani jails return back to India.Problem of Indian fishermen crossing over in Pakistani waters has increased in the last five years because of redrawing of the borders. Line was earlier parallel to Pakistani coast and perpendicular to Indian coast is now at an angle of 45 degrees. To our bad luck in the Pakistani waters lies the point where Indus valley delta meets the Arabian Sea abundant in fish, crabs etc. New borders have considerable decreased the fish abundant areas for Indian fishermen and as result many wander into Pakistani waters and are captured. Pakistan has caught 383 boats since 2003 of which 200 are missing and 183 are in dilapidated state.So now the question arises why our agencies are not able to regulate fishing and keep a strict vigil on the fishermen and prevent them from wandering into Pakistani waters.There is only one reason shortage of staff and equipments. Gujarat which has the longest coastline among the Indian states (1650kms) , has around 24000 mechanized boats and 5000 trawlers. As per the rules upto 12 kms Gujarat police guards them and from there on till 200kms its Indian coastguard. Other agencies are Gujarat Maritime board which gives certificates to the boats and customs which issues identity cards to the fishermen. A typical custom officer has around 200kms of area to manage, with only 150 staff and 3-4 vehicles. With such a shortage of manpower we cannot expect them to cross check the ids and other details.A typical journey of fishing boat coasts around 1 lakh for 10 days and the crew is expected to come with a rich haul of fisheries to cover the cost of trip, salaries and profit. Such pressure is bound to take them to the Pakistani water which is abundant in fishes and crabs. Indian waters a polluted by pollutants from jamnagar refinery, tata chemicals, Gujarat alkalies and above all the ship breaking yard at alang has killed all the ships.Gujarat coast guard is also very ill equipped having only 4 ships, 2 aircraft and 2 hovercrafts to manage the whole area. It takes 45 minutes to one hour to physically check a boat, so checking of all the boats is not possible. Only thing can be done is that proper ids are given after thorough checking and GPS installed on all the boats fishing be regulated by the coastal police. Fishing harbors and ports should be separated for security reasons.7000 men coast guard of India is very short staffed to handle the 7500 kms long coastline of India.There are enough laws and agencies in India. Passing of NIA might have brought the terrorism from state list into center list as well but the real problem is not the[...]



Mumbai Blasts and Indian Government

Fri, 19 Dec 2008 03:55:00 +0000

The government of India has started taking actions after the 26/11 Mumbai blasts. Are these actions useful or helpful is a different matter. But first lets discuss what actions are being taken.

First was sacking of Shivraj Patil , and CM and Deputy CM of Mumbai. Few of these were expected specially the Patil one as the suit changing man was out of sorts in handling the home ministry. Other two went because of their own acts Deshmukh because of terror tourism and R.R Patil because of his incapability in handling those two ill fated days of blasts and his famous comment "Small things happen in big cities" led to his fall.

Other important thing done by India was using its foreign policy in putting pressure on Pakistan from other countries specially the US of A. Initially we all Indians became emotional and were emphasizing on the need for was but we later came to know was is not possible as US will not allow this to happen. US troops are already fighting in regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan borders in killing jihadi terrorists. Majority of Pakistani troops are stationed there and they are helping the Americans.

So diplomatic front is the only open front, even though we have contradictory statements, foreign minister stating that military option is open and defense minster saying other day military option is ruled out.

Pakistan what should I say about the terrorist nation of Pakistan is behaving in the same way as expected. One day they say they are not responsible for non state actors other day they say its their responsibility.

Time is ripe for India to maneuver its foreign policy and become procative now. We should do what Indira Gandhi did during the Bangladesh was, visiting many countries and gaining their confidence and backing of many countries. We should stop taking help for our matters and start depending less on America to help us in sorting our matters. This is not the way future superpowers should behave. There is a need for both soft power and hard power. If our soft power is expanding in form of yoga and curry we also need to show our hard power sometimes.
Following the 50-50 policy never helps, we should either be for or against and trying to create a middle way usually leads to failures.

Conscious of our VIP's has risen and most of them have started demanding less security cover which, has become a status symbol for the politicians. In yesterday's HT it was mentioned that 46,000 men guard 13,339 VIP's and if we cut on these numbers we can create 4 new NSG's and double Delhi or Mumbai police forces. But no lal batti culture has so creep down in our councious that its very difficult to do away with.
There is only one way in which it can be done its through supreme court. Jayalalita and Karunanidhi both are having Z+ security, I don't understand why do they need such security cover, they have never received any threat, they only fear each other :) . Mulayam Singh supported the UAP in saving the government so he was given Z+ security. Every government goes this way, there is no way to decide whom to be given Y,Z,Z+ security. This is wastage of so much tax payers money.

NIA is next ......

Some More Solutions to the Terrorism Problems

Fri, 05 Dec 2008 04:58:00 +0000

Carrying forward my earlier post on steps to control terrorism in India , i after reading a lot , watching a lot of news channels and above all thinking a lot come up with few more solutions.

Eighth Point
Stop the funding of terrorism, its difficult but not impossible, most of the funding is done via poppy and opium crop which is grown in Afghanistan. If that can be curbed I think a major part of their funding for latest weapons will be affected

Ninth Point
Stop wastage of so much resources on our elite politicians like giving them so many NSG commandos, around 2500 are for their security out of the total of 10-12K NSG commandos.

Tenth Point
Raise salaries of Police officers, politicians pass the bill for their salary hike with full majority, salary should be hiked of police officers also , i feel it may to some extent stop bribing etc.

Eleventh Point
Smart people for intelligence agencies like RAW, IB , CID, CBI etc. Right now what is done is that if a politician is having problem with any officer he is transferred to CID office or CBI office. This is not the right way, funda of right man for right job just like in our armed forces should be followed.

Twelfth Point
The citizens should be given the option of show their protest against a canditate by using the option 'vote for none' . This will show our resentment towards the candidates and may put pressure on politicians also. See section 49-O

Thirteenth Point
Monitoring is required, as we now how valuable information is being provided by the CCTV footage installed in railway stations, so huge investment is required to install CCTV's and other modern equipments in public places and places of importance.

More points will be added



Indian Politicians again proove that they are out of their minds

Tue, 02 Dec 2008 05:33:00 +0000

Now the star is Kerela CM , 80 year old war horse who has really lost his mind and need some much needed rest.
His latest comment which I don't have words to describe that pathetic, pitiful, pitiable, piteous, lamentable some of the words i took from web.

His Comment:
"If it had not been (Major) Sandeep's house, not even a dog would have glanced that way."

This is age old problem of out politicians as they think that if they occupy some high post they are gods nobody can deny them anything they can get what they want, the 80 year something old warhorse slowly loosing his mind was shocked when he had to face the opposite of what he was expecting.
This happens ever where in my native state haryana in earlier government regime if any minister liked something they asked that person to give it to them. I remember one incident which became famous one minister liked the car of a person so he took keys from that business man and give it to one of his son as birthday gift, that unlucky businessman had to go back on autorikshaw.

My point is age old mindset that politics is for making money and once you become a minister you are god nobody can say no to you is wrong. Time is over for such mindset, slowly and gradually India is getting educated despite strong efforts by politicians to keep India illiterate so that their vote bank doesn't get affected as we know educated people will ask answers from the vote minded politicians.



Indian IT Companies Measures in Recession

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 10:49:00 +0000

Ya It seams that the good timings are over now in IT world and now the time has come for youngsters to look beyond IT. There are many reasons for that one of the major is the IT labors number have increase so much that they are always looked downwards where ever they go be it for higher technical education or an mba. Ohh you are just another IT engineer in India, there is shortage of people in other streams in India be it mechanical or electrical.

Recession (some big shot management people call it regression in my office :D ) has taken a heavy toll everywhere, companies are going for drastic measures below are some of the following:

  • No need for flexi timings from now, company comes first employee later. Even though if employee is giving full productive hours.
  • Subsidy has been removed from bus , cab and lunch. Lunch charges in my company are not 1050 from 450, cab charges are 4500 and bus charges are 3000. All these are monthly charges. Every thing has been raised more then 70% apart from the salary. This is in case of companies which are no way near to getting affected by recession as they hardly have any financial clients.
  • Working hours getting increased in most of the companies from 8.30 to 9.30 hours
  • I am afraid they don't come up with the pathetic idea of working on Saturday, if they come than it will be their loss as in IT people are so stressed out over the week days working for late hours and if Saturday is made working than the culture of government style working will peep in i.e no more staying late.
  • Every one is being monitored nowadays from intelligent managers to useless coders.
  • Its very good times for HR people this is not my brain speaking but what i see here in my office, change daily birthday posters and keep the notice boards up2date, I have never seen them interact with any employee about how are you working.
There are many advantages of working in small company as you see and observe things very closely which you wouldn't have noticed in a big company, you learn a lot of things and you skip a lot of things which you could have learnt in a biggie.

These are tough times and we will get through them in one year or two. But now is the right time to enhance our other skills apart from technical skills be it communication skills or evaluation skills.

Every cloud has a silver linning and there is darkness before dawn sets in so this is a learning phase for me also in starting of my career that these kind of things can come and you have to come up with innovative ways to tackle them. Tested and implemented ways are not always successfull.



Raj Thackeray sms

Steps to Control Terrorism in India

Sat, 29 Nov 2008 10:50:00 +0000

Well the attacks are finally over now is the time for action. Officially around one hundred eighty have died but unofficially it must be around two hundred fifty.Following steps can be taken which I seeFirst PointA centralized agency whose head is only accountable to prime minister of India , that no need for bureaucracy and other permissions.Three to four tier coastal security for India's highly susceptible to danger coastal line.Second Point.Increase coordination between Raw, IB, CBI , CID . These agencies and many other should be interacting with each other so that we can act together in any case whether terrorists attacks or any other danger on Indian country.Third Point.A change in foreign policy, infact we don't have any concrete policy at all in case of our dangerous neighbors from nepal, Bangladesh , Pakistan , sri lanka and china above all.China is coming deep inside our neighboring countries with plans for infrastructure and other help for the countries, Bangladesh is almost a out of control country on the lines of Pakistan. Bangladesh soldiers come and attack inside Indian territory and we do nothing, chinese are coming inside Sikkim and arunachal pradesh and we in a hush hush way try to keep the infiltration silent in short doing nothing.China is building roads and train network in neighboring areas of arunachal pradesh and we dont even have a fully developed road network there.We need to change our tendency of getting equal returns from the saarc countries, time is to give them more so that their economy is lifted , they are educated and things like opting for terrorists deeds in shortage of food can be avoided.Fourth Point.First lets read the conversation which could have gone between Zardari and Manmohan SinghMS: Angry . Send your ISI chief we want to discuss facts with him.Zardari: Well Sir i am sorry about what has happened in Indian, I am with you in this matter and cooperate full support as you now ji we are also the sufferers in this case, You know how they destroyed our Marriot hotel , you could have learn't from happenings here in Pakistan and tried to be vigilant. We will send you the isi chief you can discuss what you want with him.MS: Ya I know you are also sufferers of terrorism like us , byeZardari: Okay friend we are with you in this matter we are also suffers like you.Today morning Pakistan do a U turn and says we are not going to send isi chief to discuss facts with India but we are with India in this matter.Is this the way a contry who think itself as future America that is future super power behave.Time is ripe for some action, I don't understand what will calling the ISI chief of pakistan do. Manmohan Singh or the government must be thinking that junta is very angry we need to give some strong message to the public of India that we are doing something so lets call the ISI chief.Common what will that do and other thing like organizing a cabinet meeting without calling the suit changing home minister Mr Patil , he is not the only one who is at fault all of you and you Mr Manmohan singh as the captain of Indian government are also at fault.So step like a future super power would be to send in commandoes to certain areas of pakistan in POK and other areas to capture some militants and show some thing to the world that we not weak. Israel has done like this many time why cant we do it.Fifth Point.Destroy the mafia in mumbai which is also one of the helper in the mumbai blasts, we have done it many times now give some more powers to ATS and destroy it completely. Though some funds to political parties or bollywood movie makers may be coming via mafia but we need to[...]



India request Pakistan to send its ISI Chief

Fri, 28 Nov 2008 10:51:00 +0000

Yes India is back to old days of requesting other countries to do this and that. India has requested Pakistan to send its ISI chief for information sharing.

I dont have words to say on this development as i see another attacks in some other city in few months as this laid back attitude is worthless. Had it been america all the ships would have been moved to Karachi port.

That is the difference between a super power and the country which dream to be a superpower.

Empty Spaces

Today I am feeling low as it was my mentor's last day in my company. She is like elder sister to me and a very dear friend. Sometimes the other person don't know what they mean to us , how they affect our lives. She is the one who encouraged me when I was low and guided me when I needed guidance. She is joining as HR Head in a mnc and I know she will be a great asset to that company.
I have see very few persons with such good interpersonal skills, she has a habit of gelling with other persons so easily. I know she will not be as approachable as she was when in my company as I barged into her cubicle any time I wanted to, but now it will not be like that before.

But I am happy as every one need to take new challenges and gain experiences in their life. She meant a lot to me and will mean a lot all my life. If ever in my life I become capable enough to open my company she will the first person who will be offered the post of President-HR.
Best of Luck :)

Apple has done it again, Jobs launched the new iphone at half the price that is only 199 dollars. I got one for $399 2 months back. The repercussions will be felt all over the world now as nokia N series will be wiped out if its 199 dollars in US so it will be under Rs 18K in India that means the walkman series the N series all will slash prices other wise apple wind will take them all.
I see iphone iphones in the hands of people now.



5 Stages of Grief

Mon, 09 Jun 2008 12:27:00 +0000

One of my friend was discussing these and I came to know about the stages. He was talking about these stages in movie Bucket List.

These are the same stages I have gone through , let me tell you one by one
1. Denial - iift call rejected after interview and gd. Still don't know where was the fault. So at this stage I was like No No it cant be , this can't happen.

2. Anger- wait listed for Spjain this is not the mumbai's one (as my btech acads poor so no call), this is Singapore one. Everything was fine went till the last stage. I was angry why I am wait listed probably because my work ex was less only 20 months and there were lot of guys with 3-4 years experience. But still it was Why me , its not fair.

3. Bargaining: It happened when I was waiting for imt-g result, I am interested in marketing but I said to god just let me in imt rest i will take care , i will rise myself. This was bargaining just let me in so that my line will be changed from IT to management.

4. Depression: I realized I am not a good bargainer, so I was waitlisted again as you all know its only written score that matters most, not the gd/pi they carry hardly so waiting and than they confirmed me in imt-nagpur , i said what the hell , wait wait wait for some movement but nothing till now. I went to depression for some days because it was like I couldn't believe or probably I expected a lot from myself. I thought my admission will be as likely as lot but :(

5. Acceptance :
Though I cannot say that its as sure as death that I would be going through the whole process next year because of human tendency of being hopeful, but its more or less clear and the fighter in me is out and now I am sure that there is something better waiting for me.
Everything will be okay , I will reach my goal my destiny probably 1-2 years late but one thing is as sure as taxes that I will reach as we know every cloud has silver lining.

For everything you have missed you have gained something else and for everything you gain you loose something else
