5 Things to Remember – Ayodhya Verdict September 30, 2010

The verdict, that has been awaited for so long, has been delivered by the Allahabad High Court, and can be read on this link. While this verdict will become a thing of past in some time, there are various things that you need to remember about this issue.

I have decided to point out 5.

5. The case was a title suit and involved 3 parties in it. The HC has delivered its verdict for these three parties involved. It is not a case of victimization or glory of any one religion or community. This point must be well understood, on the merits of logic.

4. The verdict is a step in a judicial proceeding and might not be the end of the issue. It is certainly not a case that should be metamorphosed into an electoral plank.

3. Arnab Goswami, Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai and the likes of these are a bunch of morons. Instead of listening to these ill informed, self obsessed and self stated guardians of Indian judiciary and democracy, you will be better placed, if you were to read the summary of the verdict yourself, or listen to some informed opinion.

2. It shouldn’t really matter to you, what the verdict means to any place of worship. You have enough of them already. Yes, if you were protesting for building a public toilet, a hospital or a school, your protest can be justified. However, there can be no justification for Voilence.

1. Most importantly, if you live within the boundaries of the country of India, then this country is being governed by a piece of document known as the Constitution of India. Your prime duty is to uphold this Constitution and not some whim of a political party.

5 Reasons to take an Interview – For an Interviewer September 26, 2010

It is been a long time since I made my last post to this world. Most of you might be rejoicing, but that is not something that I wish to get into. For I have decided to not abuse on this site. I might follow you on twitter instead, and make your life hell. But that is for twitter, another place another time.

It has been an even longer time since I gave you 5 reasons on anything or have talked about interviews. When the last time I met you with 5 reasons, I was talking to the interviewee in you. Then, I thought I had to leave out quite a few of you, since you had already given interviews and now wanted to know why you should take one. So, this time I have come to talk to you. The ones who could be giving me a job in future.

So here they are, 5 reasons to take an interview:

Reason 1: You are a sadist. You like to watch girls cry, boys sweat and pretty girls giggle nervously. If you are the kind of person who sticks to pessimists for the doom they predict, and have an affinity for disasters, then you are exactly the person to make the interview a dramatic affair. Of course, you like drama of the calamity kind. For, you are a sadist.

Reasons 2: Interviews can do wonders for your confidence. Most of the interviewees will never know as much about your FMCG company as you do, about how you distribute and how you collect revenues. They could be MBAs, and they would still know lesser than you. No, how should it matter that you have been stuck in the same job and same position for the last 17 years. You did a Bachelors in Commerce, and they are MBAs. And you still know more than them. Isn’t that all that matters?

Reason 3: You are a masochist. No, not of the sexual kind, but the non sexual kind. You derive your gratification from being abused. The interviewee might really be an idiot that you think you are. But that man or woman would always think other wise. You are going to be abused, mocked and even vowed against, but you derive pleasure from all that.

Reason 4: The lady in the Human Resources Department is really pretty. And the only time you see her is during the process of recruiting.

Reason 5: Well, do you have a better way of finding out the right candidate to tolerate your temperament, your attitude, and of course the work at the organization? Well, you surely don’t.
