A couple of things happened that made me see through another layer of myself!
Last July, I completed five years with my company; A rarity among the IT professionals in India. Today i was awarded a Service Anniversary certificate by the CIO of a Fortune major Client. Pretty cool huh? Me liked that bit a lot.
But hated my guts for being part of a team that put up a FAKE show to welcome him! walls were painted again, the emergency Yellow lines were drawn for the floors only which he was expected to visit. He was also gifted an elephant and a drawing of him that was signed by all! How low will we stoop to get more business?
A project is being closed after three years, and the team is planning to go out for a movie and dinner. I am supposed to be one of the sponsors. I don’t mind giving out the money but i do NOT want to go out with them. I know i will be called a lot of things for doing that.
People might call me things, even think i am big loser. Isn’t it better to be different and stick to some values rather than be one among many and live without any?
