Oh ! Calcutta

Just another day, when I was caught thinking about this highly productive city with simply superb infrastructure..[Gosh ! I had nothing better to do, for a change :P]

Snapshots (Part 1):

The Highly Productive kolkata ~ Everything here gets multiplied by 3, gets thrice on its own..Isn't this not magical enough about the place.Like 5 mins of 'speed-posting' job gets done in a good big 15 mins.This is when we consider the timer to start after reaching the counter, reaching there is another story all together..from a normal shopping, to basic amenities, to you-name-it.Its all the same.

& its Superb Infrastructure ~ The Metro line construction, evergoing since the mesozoic age has made it so possible for the auto-wallahs to present their driving skills.. making it so unbelievably convenient for the already stranded-in-a-big-sharing-auto-line office-goers.. a perfect start of the day.. & finally reaching office on time all you can think of is this :

Oh ! My dear, City of Joy,
I wonder how you got this name..
Coz in last 5 months I have met many a Mr. Joys,
but none being aware of the sarcasm behind the name !

Being to west, north & south,
I wanted a stint in the east this time..
but the silly me didn't get it right,
how regrets awaited me here all day & night..

From office to home to all the beauty in between,
this 'picturesque' city as widely acclaimed..
gets me to scribble such musings & proclaim !

Interes'IT'ng Day at Work !

Work seldom gets interesting.But 'it' gets so even after you try hard to make it look bad.Everyone gets a chance & every dog has 'its' day & so does 'it' has.Lets accept 'it'.Yes 'it' is all criticized for the no of holidays, work-pressure, monotonicity ( & a whole lots of many separate posts on how bad 'it' is) but the fact remains.'It' will be taken down as one of the greatest revolution of our times !

So here we had our much talked about Client-meeting today.Didn't matter much to me & similar souls around me,except for however getting up early & realizing I can still reach office in the office timings (when actually you get to see the sharing-auto-to-office-line) & a couple of handshakes with our Swiss Clients & me smiling inside on my Swiss connection,the closest I could get to Roger Federer :D after the Diwali-time Swiss Chocolates of course :)

PS: 1. All gearing up for the 'royal' client dinner tomorrow.They definitely deserve it after trusting their software,devices & working on us :P

DISCLAIMER: All grammatical mistakes directly blamed to my roomie & her blaring TV :| :P
