An Intellectual Marwari



Marwari Wish :
************ ***

A Marwadi having no child, no money, no home, a blind mother, prays to God.
God happy with his prayers, grants him only ONE wish!

Marwadi: I want my mother to see my wife putting Diamond bangles on my Child's hands in our new home!

God: Damn !!! I still have a lot to learn from these Marwadi's

Lessons learnt from the above story:-

"Compile all requirements and present in one line rather than boring the appraiser for long time"

How to bring joy back to your work?

Joy at work is not a matter of working in a lavish infrastructure, earning countless dollars and partying out every night. It is rather a practice of being happy with what you are doing and more importantly for whom you are doing.

People working in the biggest companies, earning millions of dollars are not the happiest ones always. Someone working in a local company with much lesser salary can be happier. Do you remember the old days when you passed out from the college and landed up your first job?

The excitement of going to work could be seen bubbling out but as the time passed, things changed. Going to work became an obligation rather than an enjoyment. Do you realise what changed in these few years?

Here are some tips to help you regain that joy in your work:

1. Be realistic


We often have a habit of setting unrealistic goals for ourselves. We expect more than what we are capable of and when we are not able to meet our goals, depression seeps in and the work becomes a source of unhappiness rather than joy.

See, if you also aimed to touch skies overnight. If yes, set S.M.A.R.T goals for yourself.

SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & Timely



2. Turn to the office with a right mindset



Enter your office with a positive mindset about your work, colleagues and employer.

Bearing negative thoughts about your workplace will not only hamper your performance but will not let you like your work.



3. Maintain a good rapport with everyone at office


This is something said ad-nauseam times but not practiced very often. The best way to do is to maintain an open communication with your boss and colleagues.

Practice small things like helping people wherever you can, pass a gentle smile as you see a colleague and you will see that you will always have some to help or advice you when needed.




4. Try to fix the problems rather than complaining



Most of us have a habit of sitting and criticizing things.

Rather than just discussing the problems around it will be a better idea to find a solution to them. This will not only create a healthy work atmosphere but also give you a sense of achievement.



5. Focus on your KPAs



Many of us feel that we are doing a lot of work which is not recognised. This acts as a source of depression at work.

The best way to come out of such a situation is to focus on your Key Performance Areas.

If you do everything but your actual job, your performance will never be appreciated. So, see if you are doing the right things.


6. Maintain transparency


If you are a boss or a senior person at your workplace, try to maintain transparency in the work culture.

Well informed employees are easier to work with and will reduce your worries. Moreover, you will see that they will stand by you in the hour of need.




7. Celebrate success with juniors



Keep patting for the next batting.

Celebrate success with the junior members of your team. If they are happy and motivated, half of your worries will evaporate themselves.

Also, such informal gatherings bring your team members closer and increase the compatibility quotient.






8. Accept new challenges and risks



A common feature of most of the happy professionals around.

This will give you not only the joy of recognition but also a feeling of satisfaction. Identify new challenges and volunteer to handle them.

If you are offered an opportunity to handle any new project which might be totally new for you, accept the challenge and do all that is required to make it successful.


9. Stay away from dirty politics



Dirty office politics will not let you do your actual job affecting your performance, will keep your colleagues away from you and won't let you think constructively.

So, keep away from politics and blame game. If you have committed a mistake, accept it gracefully and learn to correct it.






10. Take a rejuvenating break from work



There will be times when even after practicing all the above mentioned things you will feel exhausted. This is an indication from your body that it needs rest.

So, take a break and rejuvenate yourself for the next inning.

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is an American. She asks her students to raise their hands if they were American too. Not really knowing why but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like flashy fireworks.
       There is, however, one exception. A girl named Gita has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different. "Because I am not an American." replied Gita. "Then", asks the teacher, "What are you?"

"I'm a proud Indian," boasts the little girl. The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Gita
why she is an Indian. "Well", my mom and dad are Indians, "so I'm an Indian too." The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason", she says loudly "if your mom was an idiot, and your dad was an idiot, what would you be then?"

A pause, and a smile. "Then" says Gita, "I'd be an American."

Domain experience

Boy was telling the story to his IT friends and trying to explain the Importance of domain knowledge....


One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me and my brother who is four years older than I am. I was maybe 3 and half years old and had just recovered from an accident in which my arm had been broken among other injuries.

Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was playing nearby in the living room when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.

My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!!'

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up, then she says to him, 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place that baby can reach to get water is the toilet??'

....Mothers know!!


Domain knowledge is very important!!! Else your supplier will trick you......


Letter to God ....


India today by young kid ???????


Letter to God


A little boy wanted
Rs.50 very badly
and prayed for weeks,
but nothing happened.

Finally he decided to

write God a letter
requesting the Rs.50.

When the postal

authorities received the
letter addressed to
God - INDIA ,
they decided to
forward it to the
President of the India
as a joke.

The President was

amused, but thought
Rs.50 would appear to
be a lot of money
to a little boy,
and he did not want
to spoil the kid.
So he instructed
his secretary to send
the little boy Rs.30.

The little boy was

delighted with Rs. 30,
and decided to write a
thank you note to God,
which read:

"Dear God: Thank you

very much for sending
the money.. However,
I noticed that you
sent it through the
President's Office
. . and those donkeys
deducted Rs.20 as tax"

Law of the Garbage Truck!


Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked,
'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined
Your car and sent us to the hospital!' 

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,

'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around
full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. 

As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll
dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,

So ... Love the people who treat you right.

Pray for the ones who don't

is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

The Guys' Rules  
At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down

Finally , the guys' side of the story. 
We always hear " the rules"
From the female side.

Now here are the rules from the male side.  
These are our rules! 
Please note.. these are all numbered "1" 


1.   Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. 
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. 
Let us be clear on this one:  
Subtle hints do not work! 
Strong hints do not work! 
Obvious hints do not work! 
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem  only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong.  
We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.
