Lost internet and mobile connection during Chennai Rains

When I returned back after a very short walk around my apartment, I called up my parents and conveyed that it is down pouring at Chennai and I am safe at home and would call next day morning. Since I conveyed my message to parents, that I am safe in the home and no plans of stepping out anytime soon, they were pretty much relieved. I crashed to the bed at around 8 PM, this was the first time in my life to crash so early in the bed and just lost in some random thoughts. Of all these random things against me during the Chennai Rains, there was one good thing which I made earlier, I had around 18 Tintin adventure eBook downloaded in my iPod Touch and I has been my companion for 2 long days. I slept too soon, after I crashed to the bed early in the night and had good sleep for around 4 to 5 hours before I woke up to the monstrous thunder and lightning. At around 2 AM there was continuous thunders with multiple lightning, I woke up to these sounds only to sense the impact of the rains. Now I am sure that the rains are not stopping any time soon and the hope of getting electricity in the next day faded away. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

18. Surprise in salary hike

Continuation to the salary saga and my manager requesting me to share the hike percentage, I reached home with heavy heart and never wanted to open the hike letter again. However, I was curious about knowing how much salary would I get post the hike and how much can I save for my retirement. So, after opening the hike letter my calculations were not matching the actual numbers and it doesn’t add up to the final hike numbers. Few moments later, I came to know that I have made a huge error while making the calculations and the hike percentage was more than I actually thought. Now after few calculations I found the exact hike percentage for the current and was actually shocked to know that it was on a higher side, not too higher neither too low to ignore. I was happy and was making some calculations to arrive at my final salary package and found that most of the hike percentage were going for tax and the NET amount is lower than I expected. Now, the most difficult task was to convey it to the manager who requested for it and for more such stories, continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

Closing off complex opportunity

As everything seemed out of my hand and really hoping that the opportunity should be dropped off, it went other way that it should be submitted to the customer. Now I had no other option to interact with both these delivery experts and get required information for submission of the opportunity. To ease me off in this complex opportunity, the good delivery expert looped one of his team members to support on this opportunity. This new associate had good skills and knowledge about the task and was able to assist me with required information and details for completing this opportunity. But still this complex delivery expert always had opinions and suggestions for each and every input that we collated and submitted. One major advantage I had with me on this complex opportunity was the TIME, as the submission date was coming up shortly. Now other team had started to raise questions on estimates and “Thank God” this complex delivery expert was not paying attention to the delivery inputs we were collating and was too busy on completion of estimates. Finally, I had some personal commitment and had to take off shortly before the submission date and was closing all open items as much as possible and left it to other team members.

Working on short Opportunity

Last week I was assigned an opportunity to with a delivery POC, the opportunity seemed too small and the effort required is only for estimation. So, I thought I would have good time watching videos and having good time browsing my interested topics in Internet. The opportunity call was scheduled for the next day morning at 9:30 AM and I had to wake up early to attend these calls. Waking up early is most frustrating thing for me to do and that too for attending the office calls is the most frustrating thing that can happen in a day’s start. The first day call was just brief about the opportunity and detailing stuff required from each team. I forgot that there were 3 teams involved in this opportunity and I belong to one amongst the teams. Of all things they were discussing about, which I didn’t give a damn about it suddenly they mentioned my team and conveyed that they might require a deck as well as estimates. Now I’m doomed as I have to work on this opportunity and give my best. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
