It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.
We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work. Personal Days Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday & Sunday.
This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, and
alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offenders category". Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sanctioned under the company's mental health policy.
Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.
Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

The title sounds like it's a really bad sequel to a superhero movie, but hey, you get the point. I'm back in India for 5 weeks, 4 of which will be spent in Chennai. Couple of weddings to attend, family reunion, catching up with friends, and of course, severe partying with copious quantities of everything. For you guys, this'll probably be like an extended version of your average weekend. For me, it's a much needed holiday.
I don't have any of your numbers, so I'll just land up at Studio on Thursday, bald head and all. And the fun and games will begin. Looking forward to seeing you all.
Oh, btw, I'm typing this in Singapore, at the airport. This is now truly a global blogal...

"The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most.
A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its clouds upon our heads. The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.
Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side.
He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer. He will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.
If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and when the last scene of all comes and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death."

The way it works is:
1) u use it to find out some current info like the coach position
2) it tells u it's gonna be at the other extreme end of the platform from where you are currently standing
3) u lug urself all the way there in all of 30 minutes
4) the train arrives and u find that your coach is placed right where u were when u started - at the other end from where you are now
5) u now have only 5 minutes before the train leaves
6) you go "OUCH" (actually, you go m@#$%f@#$% s#@$ a#$%^ ...)
(Disclaimer: The above experience has been modified for dramatic effect. The 'ouch' thingy worked pretty fine alright. Yet, there's a chance of cutting yourself on the edges of frame holding the screen and going, "OUCH"!)

"The U.S. Secret Service admitted that the tracking information is part of a deal struck with selected color laser printer manufacturers, ostensibly to identify counterfeiters. However, the nature of the private information encoded in each document was not previously known.
"We've found that the dots from at least one line of printers encode the date and time your document was printed, as well as the serial number of the printer," said EFF Staff Technologist Seth David Schoen.
You can see the dots on color prints from machines made by Xerox, Canon, and other manufacturers (for a list of the printers we investigated so far, see: http://www.eff.org/Privacy/printers/list.php). The dots are yellow, less than one millimeter in diameter, and are typically repeated over each page of a document. In order to see the pattern, you need a blue light, a magnifying glass, or a microscope (for instructions on how to see the dots, see: http://www.eff.org/Privacy/printers/docucolor/)."

I was surprised to find that some still think that Hindi is 'THE' national language of India as much as they were to hear from me that it is not. We realized that the former view is what is passed as the 'absolute' truth regarding the law of the land with regards to language in our education system as well as most other public arenas. Whereas 'the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth' is not quite as simple as that.
Here are some links to pages that shed more light on the matter:
Does anyone know any other interesting facts on this topic?

This is too rich:
When taxi driver Mike Wagers picked up a couple outside Cincinnati Wednesday, he had no idea authorities considered them armed and extremely dangerous.
He had no clue they were wanted in Tuesday's escape from, and fatal shooting of a guard at, a courthouse in Kingston, Tenn. And he had no way of knowing he was about to become a key player in their capture.
According to police, Jennifer Hyatte, 31, ambushed two guards as they were leading her 34-year-old husband, inmate George Hyatte, from a hearing in Kingston, Tenn.
A guard was shot and killed, and Jennifer was shot as well, police add.
Officials say the Hyattes were still on the lam when Wagers drove them to Columbus, Ohio.
But he says little they said or did made him think anything was amiss.
"The cover story they gave me didn't really seem to wash too much," Wagers told The Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith Thursday. "I mean, I could kinda see through that. But I had no indication that these guys were really dangerous or they were on the run."
They claimed they were heading to a sales conference of Amway, the household goods manufacturer. But, says Wagers, "They didn't strike me as the Amway type, because, to be honest, they weren't very pushy about their product. And I've dealt with (Amway salespeople) before. So that was my only real suspicion.
"But they paid me for the trip, so I had no outward reason to suspect that these were bad people."
Didn't he notice that the woman was injured? "I didn't notice anything 'til we had gotten there. When I was dropping them off at the hotel room, she was favoring one side. I don't know actually where she was injured at. But she said … she'd gotten banged up in a car wreck she was in. It didn't raise any further suspicion."
Wagers says a friend's suggestion led to his tip to police: "I had already made it all the way back home. I was done for the day. I was actually sitting at home, playing some video games. Then a friend of mine called me up and said, 'Hey, you took some folks … up to Columbus, right?' I said, 'Yeah.' Then he said, 'You need to call the police.' "
"We get all kinds in the cab," Wagers continued. "And I didn't figure they were up to no good. I had no clue. I was really caught off guard by this."
Wagers admits he "didn't get much sleep, just thinking about how this could have turned out."

The real reason of this post is to express my disapointment in the Church's almost primitive methods of confirming that the Pope really is no more.
"When the Pope dies, the administrator of the property and the revenues of the Holy See -- who is known as Cardinal Camerlengo -- first verifies the Pontiff's death. This is done by striking the Pope's forehead gently thrice with a silver hammer and asking him, using his Baptismal name, whether he is dead." :-O
Read this for full story - http://in.rediff.com/news/2005/apr/01cspec.htm
What audacity! How dare they strike this kind old man on his forehead with a hammer. Imagine if he's not dead and is just in a state of comatose. How do you think the Pope will feel when he wakes up and his head is all bruised up? Moreover, the sheer mock in the question process when they actually ask "Hey Pope John Paul II, are you dead?" is completely unacceptable. I mean - give the guy a break. How's he supposed to answer that? "Hell no - I won't go"?
This head beating tradition has to stop. It's all because he's Polish. Bah!

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Vinay Katiyar on Wednesday claimed that the Taj Mahal in Agra was actually a Shiva temple built by Raja Jai Singh and was named 'Tejo Mai Mahal'.
"This fact finds mention in the book Badshahnama by Abdul Hamid Lahori, a close associate of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan," Katiyar said in Lucknow.
He added: "It is no doubt a graveyard as Shah Jahan brought back the body of his wife Mumtaz Mahal from Burahanpur village, where she died, and buried it in the temple after removing the Shivalinga."
"It actually belongs to us (Hindus) and we will do everything possible to reclaim it," Katiyar said.
He added that a 'Shankar Sena' would soon be formed and Damrus distributed among the people to create awareness on this issue.
His statement came close on the heels of claims of ownership of the Taj by the Shia community and Uttar Pradesh Sunni Waqf Board with the support of UP Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Azam Khan.

I bring you the original lyrics of Shrill Girls – the "tongue twister" that we all know so well and love so much. The original is by Dylan Thomas, would you believe it?!! (Kishore...?)
Ok here goes... enjoy.
And the shrill girls giggle and master around him and squeal as they clutch and thrash, and he blubbers away downhill with his patched pants falling, and his tear-splashed blush burns all the way as the triumphant bird-like sisters scream with buttons in their claws and the bully brothers hoot after him his little nickname and his mother's shame and his father's wickedness with the loose wild barefoot women of the hovels of the hills. It all means nothing at all, and, howling for his milky mum, for her cawl and buttermilk and cowbreath and Welshcakes and the fat birth-smelling bed and moonlit kitchen of her arms, he'll never forget as he paddles blind home through the weeping end of the world. Then his tormentors tussle and run to the Cockle Street sweet-shop, their pennies sticky as honey, to buy from Miss Myfanwy Price, who is cocky and neat as a puff-bosomed robin and her small round buttocks tight as ticks, gobstoppers big as wens that rainbow as you suck, brandyballs, wine-gums, hundreds and thousands, liquorice sweet as sick, nugget to tug and ribbon out like another red rubbery tongue, gum to glue in girls' curls, crimson coughdrops to spit blood, ice-cream cornets, dandelion-and-burdock, raspberry and cherryade, pop goes the weasel and the wind.
I want to know what he was on...

Sting may have left crowds in Bangalore and New Delhi begging for more, but the swell season continues for rock music enthusiasts in India.
The Eagles (best known in these parts for their anthem Hotel California) are due to tour India, possibly sometime in June, according to sources close to the proceedings.
That is, of course, besides the Mark Knopfler treat confirmed for March first week.
The former Dire Straits frontman (who, we hear, is Sachin Tendulkar's favourite musician) with one of the most instantly identifiable guitar sounds in the history of music will play in Delhi and Mumbai. He has returned to music from a near fatal motorcycle accident last March with Shangri La, named after the studio the album was recorded in.
Bangalore, reeling from the imminent live band ban, is going to miss out.
There are also whispers of Norah Jones, Pandit Ravi Shankar's daughter who created a sensation at the Grammies with her debut album Come Away With Me, performing in India.
"She is, of course, among the smaller artistes who the event managers are in talks with," say sources.

According to Ananova, Richard Kral was off on holiday when the snow swallowed his Audi in the Tatra mountains. Initially, he tried to dig his way out via the car's window, but soon realised that the snow would fill the vehicle long before he could break free.
Mercifully, he had stocked up on essential supplies of alcohol and quickly formulated a cunning plan: 'I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there.'
Rescuers eventually found Kral staggering drunk on a mountain path four days after his ordeal began."
