Damn..I need a beer

"Damn man ..we r screwed up.. jus checkout the economic times" my friend told me.. "ET,u must be kiddin,i kno the stocks r down"..,i was as usual in my in lazy best. "Jus check it out,jaggu..!!! This time he was serious in his tone. I logged into ET website n there was an interview of my company's CEO up there..

Damn..the same expression from me also..Appu jus saw this n asked "What happened ???". " No salary hike this year 4 us,dude..Do u know wat that means.."- me. " Oh come on..I knw this wud happen b4 itself",he tried to maintain a poker face. " Relax ,da..recession..its recession time"-he.

Awwh..I am tired of this word,can somebody tell me an alternate one,so that i can suggest it to my team. I keep hearing this word again n again n again.. This was some gud 2 weeks back..

Recession means a temporary decline in economic activity in oxford.But it means much mor to me nw.. It means that i have to shift our stay from powai(rent,18 k ) to Borivalli(rent 9k).It means that i have to gulp KF instead of carlsberg nw(4 non drinkers,these r 2 means that i have to watch less movies a week . It means that i should feast on the dinner from office canteen,instead of fried chicken..It means i had to stay a week in thane hearin all those crap advices from sajith( i kno saj,u r readin list goes on n on..

Above all,it means that i had to part from my gud friend Prejoy..He was unallocated for some time(d so called bench in IT).N a week back ,HR asked him to go to Bangalore as there wer no projects in Mumbai..His butts was on fire but it was betta than the fire , fear of gettin fire-d. He left to Bangalore.

Speakin abt Prejoy, dude u redefined the word FRIENDS. I am gonna dedicate an entire post 4 u..wait 4 it..its comin.. Jus 2 weeks back..i was complainin to everyone around..Its all d same,we need some change,..Life is gettin mundane n more monotonous..N nw here we go,in jus 2 weeks ,everythin changed..Everythin around me has changed..Damn.. i didn want such a big change.But there is somethin in common..I was screwed up,nw n then,bt 4 diff reasons...

This 9 letter word has such an impact in such a short period..(Hey com on, i did count the letters,recession has 9 letters)..Hey guys,u don trust me..then y did u count it again ? U guys r havin emotional recession now.. n nw lemme ask u somethin ,whats d diff between a software engineer n a barber ? A barber can feed a family of 4. (in malayalam,they say , ചെരകാന്‍ പോക്കുനത് ആയിരുന്നു ഇടിലും ഭേദം ) .
I know i am exaggeratin a bit..Bt u neva know..this mite happen in d future..N i read somewhere,recession is when ur neighbour loses his job.Depression is when u lose ur job.

Damn,, I need a beer..Oh its recession period..Gimme a glass of water,instead..

nice one uhm!.. change is inevitable isnt it.. and well if recession is here, its probably to here to set everyone on track back again..and mind you recession can be depression as well, if you find ur neighbor rubbin his nose on ur shoulder every day till you get in to to your type of depression as well.

How much ever we try to ignore, the 9 letter word is going to stay for sometime now and leave its impact on all of us. We can only hope that it passes off soon.

Friends, it's true that recession came as a guest without being invited, and as of now he is staying with us. So I think, this is a challenge for each of us to sharpen our swords and burn our boats. It is a fact that truly competent ones has very less chance of getting in trouble due to recession. Excellence is becoming a mandatory condition for survival. Let us just be excellent, put our best everyday in our work and also let's keep on innovating inside and outside work.

And also I would like to add the famous Zen saying - "This too will pass".

prejoy said...

U have chosen a good topic to burn our brains and think. your blog has triggered a thought in me- In reality isn't there any such thing which is recession proof? i guess there is but we as humans have a habit of covering up our failures by putting the blame on whatever would be the greatest problem of that time. In the present scenario we as software engineers are surely affected by recession but do you think if all the other sectors are equally affected??

jaggu said...

hey there u go..bit of philosophy in

Bt this ecnmic slowdown(i am nt gonna use recession word again, damn i used it surely affected us..
