Beginnings of Corporate Life…

After lunch I was resting on a couch in the corridor of my office. My friend was also with me. We were discussing some issues he was facing. Those issues were not related to office but with accommodation facilities in Bangalore. Slowly from this topic to that topic, the focus of discussion shifted to project allocation.

 

He was saying, in general, people from particular state should get projects in cities in and around that state only. If suppose there are 4-5 people from one particular state, then company (any) should consider allocating to respective state projects only. At least they can keep the people from same state together. So I explained him, this cannot be the case every time. We always carry some perception about how our job should be, but it’s not necessary that whatever you are thinking should hold true. You think from your perspective, but you are not alone for them. They have to take care of more than thousand employees. If they keep on considering your requests day in and day out, how can the projects complete and company develop? After certain time, one can always ask for their preferences and that time they may get considered also, considering the fact that you worked as per their terms previously.

 

Also when guys or girls join any company, they think that everything should be as comfortable as their home town and home. But seriously thinking or applying common sense, can that happen? My native place will always be more comfortable to me considering the fact that I have been staying there for past some years. So how can you feel the same coziness in some other town? That means you will have to adjust, get more accommodative towards whatever circumstances you are currently living in. In first some months in any organization you feel alien as you don’t have much to do. But that’s the real testing time. If you can sustain that critical time, you can sustain anywhere and your future will hold good. Things may not work your way, but you will anyhow have to face it boldly without buckling under its pressure. Everyone goes through this stage and they have to, there cannot be any escape.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Face the pressure now and after certain time, you will enjoy this time. You will think about it in retrospect and will surely guide the coming batch of young generation. I am damn sure about that.

Ganges clean by 2020, a proposal by NGRBA India…

No Untreated waste to flow in Ganga by 2020.
a) Why government waited for this long considering the fact that sewage disposal and treatment plant requires 10 years to
come into existense? Ganga was polluted before also. Ganga is victim of pollution and waste disposal
since long time, then why government waited for this long to form National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) for solving
Ganga pollution problem.
b) Now NGRBA has asked central government to provide them with 1000 MW of FREE power (electricity), why?
You have necessary funds at your disposal. Moreover if you (NGRBA) fall short of some cash you can always raise the funds
from market by floating an IPO or simply some relief fund kind of thing. As Ganga is our National River (which has been
declared in LAST November, thats Nov 2008, I mean what took them so long to declare that and take some action on keeping
Ganga clean or for that matter every river clean?) You should not be asking central government for any freebies.
c) This proposal of cleaning Ganga off wastage and pollution is good, but this proposal should go much deeper than only Ganga.
Every Indian river is ailing with pollution and wastage problem. When Government is planning to clean every river? India is
facing a very serious problem of water shortage in almost every city. Considering the fact that our rivers are more nullahs than
rivers and carry more waste than water, it needs huge investment to purify that water and supply for domestic use. So why not clean
them and use them as resources for providing water to every city and town in the country? Government should undertake that
project also as soon as possible.
d) No doubt, better late than never, Government has woke up to the fact that Indian rivers are getting polluted. But as we all
know that Indian Government is inefficient of executing anything, it will be interesting and important to see for how long the
NGRBA works in line for Ganga cleaning. It will be better if Government really follows the proposal to the exact deadlines,
unlike what’s happening in Delhi prior to CommonWealth Youth Games 2010.Project

Project:                                         Cleaning of river Ganga by 2020

Project Inception:                Still in the nascent stage.

Project planned:                    In October 2009

Project Cost estimated:    Rs. 250 crore.

Project Deadline:                  By 2020

Further process:                   A plan will be devised for cleaning the Ganga and will be presented by NGRBA.

Yes, the river Ganga is about to get clean and purified or rather Industrial wastes will not be left in Ganga anymore after 2020. But I don’t know why so late onto deciding such a critical issue? I have some doubts and questions to be asked and those are as follows:

a) Why government waited for this long considering the fact that sewage disposal and treatment plant requires 10 years to come into existense? Ganga was polluted before also. Ganga is victim of pollution and waste disposal  since long time, then why government waited for this long to form National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) for solving Ganga pollution problem.
