As you all are reading [!!] this blog, you might [not] have noticed that Shruti has started a series of articles regarding corporate- inner world. In this season of Navaratri [a 9 day dancing festival of Gujarat state], all of us are planning to give you articles especially in the context of the corporate world. Each article will be submitted on the same day it’s written. So at the end of the festival, we will have a collection of 9 different articles. Each article will be meant to be focused on different issues regarding corporate world. Enjoy reading…. 🙂
We are common man- mango people. We are not millionaires and unfortunately we don’t dwell in slums, we are no war heroes, not even a simple whistle blower, never won any big sports match and not such a good scholar that nasa-smithsonian or even ISRO is looking for us. We are just a common man who is striving hard make ours and apno ki life liveble.
And what exactly we do for that? Some people are lucky enough that their fathers and their ancestors gave them a lot to use. And they are trying hard to use and waste them. Some of us are lucky enough to have some excess amount of money so they can set something up and multiply the stock of vit-M, in other words they do business. And rest of us work for the first and second kind of people. We do jobs.
After 12th we waste atleast 3 years to get some education. To get a BA or BCOM degree atleast to settle ourselves with the world. Some of extra “wise” people who passed out science stream by luck or by coincidence waste 4 years to become an engineer or waste r.o. 6 years to become a doctor. And many of us give more time to self so that they can be MASTERS.
And after that we all surrender ourselves to corporate world. And the cynicism which comes free with all the salaries and perks we get. Either to enter or to stick with the job or business we have we do a lot of compromise.
Lets start with the starting, to get into the company we must be shortlisted for interview. And company and love is same in one case: What we need is not available to us, and what is available to us is already rejected by us. There comes the first compromise. Either wait for desired opportunity and let others take some small leaps, let your friend earn 5000 when you are earning 0 and assure yourself that you will start with 15000, sorry mate! this will not happen. But say you are wise, takes a company that fits your initial needs, money, time or perks. You pick them-they pick you and there you think your dreams come true… HEHEHE again this will not happen. Either you are earning enough to make your dream true or you have enough time to pursue your dreams. And yes both the things seldom meet. There comes the first compromise. Compromising in dream job.
Now you get a proper job. You started.working and meeting the people who work there. For them you are the scapegoat. You think that your seniors will understand you,help you. Sorry when everyone’s having fire beneath their seats they will use all fire extinguishers for them, not for you. Not every seniors are as wise as mine who not only willing but also eager to help me. They may be nice to you, but still they are professionals, a good colleague not a friend always,and never a best friends. That’s why many of our best buddies are from schools or college, not from workplace.
We have to face a hell lot of people whom I refer to as corporate cannibals. By hook or by crook they are eager to eat you. They want you to type.their report, impersonate them and answer some controvrsial questions, order a dinner for them,drop them home or collect their children. And why do you do that? So they praise you on the time of increment? again; hehehe… 😉
