A dream job...Management introduction

An introduction session by the management team...Mr. Ramaswami, the managing director, is introduced as a highly experienced mechanical engineer with over 30 years of experience in both public sector and private sector and a good friend of special advisor (I am not giving the name for obvious reasons) to the Primer Minister of India. Mr. Nagarajan, Chief Operations Manager, another mechanical engineer with over 25 years of experience. Mr. Doraiswami, Training Manager, a software engineer (finally someone related to software) with over 15 years of experience. Radha Pillai, HR manager, a very attractive lady in her late 20s or early 30s.

All the joinees are highly impressed by the introduction session, but for one thing, that everyone is South Indian (something fishy smells...). Anyhow, the first day went smoothly with everyone given the first lesson in SQL concepts and everyone happy, though no one clearly understood (I bet) a single concept.

Back to the home in Janakpuri by 3:30 p.m. First day, so an early leave. Alok, landlord's son, comes to meet us, a young guy of 22, a guitarist but very shrewd (a la typical Delhite). Very polite and very sociable, but very diplomatic. Alok gets quite friendly (???) with us and starts divulging names of the gals in our lane that we can see standing in their balconies (favorite pastime for Delhi girls in evening) with either a nephew or niece in their arms or a cordless phone (mobile was not that much a common site that time). In half an hour, we knew a lot about at least 6 girls in our lane.

To be continued...
