Bosses or work

How your bosses rule your life. Ok maybe, my life. Bbut you sure it does nto include yours?
How? heres how.
Boss gives a positive comment in the morning. how does your day at work go? Good im sure.
Yuo get a stinker, or a slightly negative comment, or even a neutral one, well. the day is gone!You think about it and it brings down your enthu for the day, till you make it a point to make it above that
THen there are the days when a single sentence from your boss can brighten up your day like nothig else. Suddenly the world is a beautiful place and nothing can be too difficult an assignement.
Does that guy/woman sitting there even realise this power that they ahve over the person who is reporting to them? In most cases, very slightly, in fact I dont think they know how it can really effecta person...in the morning.
Later in the day also causes distress/joy, but the influence is not as high.

Something that you would probably like to keep in mind when you have a dedicated team worker who likes n respects you.

How the weather left Amdavadis...

...High, but then Ahmedabad Dry.

Awesome weather after the relentless heat of the summers, Saturday was a pleasant surprise with clouds overhead, gusty wind, purple sky with no hint of the sun, a light srizzle to keep the dust down... in hsort, it was wonderful!
Just the respite that the heat stricken city of AHmedabad needed. Every terrace was occupied as people revelled int he weather. The possibility of rain hung over our heads and in apprehension - positive and fearsome we stared at the sky. Let it rain, let not the clouds fly by.
Some pragmatists said "the mango orchards will get spoilt" to which some others said "to hell with it! theres a surplus this year in other parts of India"...for after all., a little rain never did anybody any harm.
To me, it was the weather to skip, hop and jump...the impeding rain, the turbulent winds...it was almost strong enough to blow one off the terrace :) nothing seemed god enough to do. My initial plans of watching a movie I cancelled. It did not seem justifiable to be cooped up in an air conditioned theater whith such glorious weather outside.
At last after 3 hours on the terrace, and making zillions of implausibe plans, M made her appearance. and...we went out for dinner. Sigh. How I missed a pub/disc...open amphitheatered place. But then the usual Abad weather (&govt) does not allow them!
By the end of the day (read 3am) it was back to the usual...hot, windless, ...

Ahmedabad hoped, ahmedabad got drunk on the weather, and then...it was liek it never happened. And not more than 1 drop of rain.
Yes, Ahmedabad for me remained very much dry.

Deciding on meeting for lunch on a Lazy Sunday afternoon - 1 phone call

Yes, yes, I know i sent this message to you all. But still, I should remember my stupidity!

Lack of men in the world u say?

Contrary to public belief, I think there are a number of great smart guys out there.

I mean all you have to do is read the right articles on the net, and hear the right things from ppl.
Only problem is, Out There is not Here. and they never get to meet me. Poor guys make do with some women.

Else, there is a profusion of great smart women, which somehow suppress the actual no of great smart guys...who are Out There.

Then of course, there is this angle of: Great smart guys are great smart guys as long as u don’t get to know them.
I agree with this one. Totally. Never get to know someone you have the slightest crush/admiration for too well. Believe me. Unless its a girl.
