:( & :)

Working for a US client has many many disadvantages - the main being you are an Indian and India has umpteen number of holidays - and you don't get to enjoy most of them :(

Sometimes, its soooo bad - we come to the office, switch on the lights ourselves and get to work :-| Everybody else has an off - they follow the Indian calender.

Understand my plight, when we have to work on Independence Day, Gandhi Jayanthi and Republic Day too :(

HAPPY DASARA TO YOU GUYS ANYWAYS :)

Enjoy the time off... have fun!! Lots of it :) Including my share :D

Eat lots of sweets, share all your fun with lots of people and May this Dasara mean lots of good & lots of new things for all of you.







P.S. [Only sympathies are accepted about working on Indian holidays. Don't get into how we enjoy weekends off :P]

Quit because numerous job opportunities are there in the market.

a goos sleep is refreshing! :DDD

Sindhu :) said...

Totally refreshing..

Rauf said...

i have this mood swings Sindhu, i am not perfect, i need a lot of repair, tinkering a complete overhaul, total servicing, all my nuts and bolts are rattling. i am rude and arrogant. On my bad day a pilgrimage to your page would work as some kind of therapy, very soothing. do you have music on your page ?

hokkay, these guys pay you well sindhu, but they take your personality away. You would become a machine. You don't relise it now because you have iPods and iPhones and all the other luxuries others can't afford.
You have to make an effort to keep yourself sane. i accuse your generation (my niece and nephew )of very poor knowledge and very poor taste in music art and literature
because you have no time for it.
there i go again with my arrogance.
Please take some time to relax with a good book, some music. i'll flood you with music Sindhu, wish i could carry you on my shoulders and take you to the forest and show you how the nature works. and tell you how you are connected to mother earth.

india is a land of extremes and a land of holidays, too many of them, thats cool. Why do we have to compete and be like the Americans ? india is a bullock cart. i am fine with that. Peep into any aashram, three fourths of them are Americans trying to become sane.

Hope you get time to enjoy the celebrations Sindhu

Sindhu :) said...

Rauf Uncle,

Thank you SO much for saying my page acts as a therapy :)

Agree with you on the sanity part. I sometimes feel the whole thing is maddening actually. And Americans can sometimes be very very frustrating!!

Yea.. I do read books and all that - I would like to go out, travel & do more too - but lack company for that :(( and thats what my old post was ranting about :)))

Prasad said...

bak to work wit lots to do but no mood! :(
