Take Leave or Leave It

Image
I always believe that in a year you should take atleast 1-2 big holidays and also few weekend trips. It gives you time to breath fresh air and get out of that monotonous life called 'work'. But organisations in India, especially if it's an Indian organisation, they will treat leave as Criminal offense. As if, we are the only one responsible for work and without us organisation - Can't work.


I have worked in 4 - 5 organisation and everywhere I have faced the same problem. The senior and people at higher level feel that we are not dedicated towards our work because we take leave for ourselves. I mean, why being so judgmental? Leave, whether it's paid or unpaid, it's the right of every employee and everyone can decide when they want to take it or not. Why supervisor and their bosses think that we are breaking some rule by taking leave. If your boss is taking it, it's ok as he/she worked so hard but you.. Nahhhh! It can't be done!

In abroad, leave is a rig…

Book Review: Maximum City

For me, Mumbai was a place where I grew up, many things in the city were normal to me. People who grew up in other cities, saw a different side of Mumbai and came here to chase their dreams. From 1990's till 2000, Mumbai as a city has experience best and worst, from Bomb blast to the emergence of don, from the rise of Marathi community to fight between Hindu and M…

Life in Fast Lane...

Now a days life is not the one with leisure, it is the one with stress. Gone are those days where Sunday was about family, now it is with deadline. Gone are those days where our lunch breaks was to spend time with colleague, now it is sitting in front of a computer to finish the job. Gone are those days where office used to get over by evening, now we sit overnight and it get over by next day morning.

Whole day and night is gone in being perfect, doing the best job, pleasing our bosses or just try impress people to get your work done. In this fast lane life, all we care for is about others and we forget who we are, what we want. For some, life in fast lane means being surrounded by people and constantly be out of trouble.

We don't realise when day started or when day ended. We don't realise who came in our life and who walked out. We don't realise where are we now and where we will be tomorrow. All we know, all we worked for was to either just earn money or just stay aliv…
