HCL Trash

We all know corporate companies are populated with stupid people. People who like to see Orwellian 1984 and are comfortable with it. And funny things happen in corporates that will prove to us a corporate is nothing but a mental hospital that makes money. So here are stories from one corporate HCL.

Once an HCL manager complained that his system is slow, the I.T department changed his CPU, Keyboard and Mouse. Then one fine day the new system too became slow again, and the manager trashed I.T saying that the system is still slow because they did not change the monitor.

Once an HCL manager praised his subordinate for the excellent work he did that solved a problem, he even referred to him as a King in work, then on the very next day during appraisal meeting he told the “King”, ‘what the heck have you done, you have done nothing and hence you would get no hike in salary’ and sent him off back to work. The King just realized he is just another slaved who was called a King.

One guy in HCL works for a team in which all cultural activities are banned. During one of the grading meets he was called and given grade C instead of A or B. The reason: he did not participate in any cultural event.

Many people in HCL recently received an hike of Rs 100 if they are developers and 200 if they are team leads. They are surprised and don’t know how to spend so much money, as even an Pizza would cost Rs 400/- in India!!

Any way for me these does not surprise me as I myself worked in HCL and am happy to be out of that mental asylum.

Excellent article on post capitalism

Postcapitalism is possible because of three major changes information technology has brought about in the past 25 years. First, it has reduced the need for work, blurred the edges between work and free time and loosened the relationship between work and wages. The coming wave of automation, currently stalled because our social infrastructure cannot bear the consequences, will hugely diminish the amount of work needed – not just to subsist but to provide a decent life for all.


Behaviour of a stained leader

Every one knows Congress is more of a business than a country loving party. It promotes dynastic politics, turns a blind eye to corruption done by congressmen and their friends. BJP is corrupt too but not like congress.

Though L.K.Advani is a racist (what the heck you think of demolition of Babri Masjid? It was like seeing reincarnation of Adolf Hitler and the uplift of Aryan race once again), he has been a strong crusader for anti-corrupt India. When charges were laid against him, he resigned immediately from his post. The truth is, this is how any leader should behave.

You must believe in yourself. Once your role is question, you must step down from the role, clear the questions that others have and once you are unstained, you must resume back if you feel you have the energy for leadership.

What Sushma Swaraj and Vasundra Raje are doing is nothing but murder of leadership and political ethics which BJP was so proud of, and one that gave BJP moral superiority over congress. They are so thick skinned that they could have better been born as buffaloes rather than humans who should be sensitive to voices of others.

They stay put in their position even after Advani has hinted they must resign. Was their respect for Advani superficial? Did they act as though they respected Advani so that they could climb up the political ladder? Now they they are up they have now kicked him? Do they think among 1.4 billion Indians there is no replacement for them?

If BJP looses its moral ground, it would be a no better than Congress in terms of corruption, plus its a racist party too. Hence good brained young blood would like to support it?

BJP talks a lot about tradition and Indian values. It should not forget that this is a country where people did not hesitate to end themselves once their integrity and dignity are questioned. Of course these things (ending lives) are now outlawed, at least they must stop behaving like buffaloes in rain.
