Infosys...Silence..Blogging...and What else?

There are some weeks in your life...When you just have nothing to say or talk about...You are just there....doing your thing....or maybe not doing anything (Like my case these days...) and Life is just rolling...

And the phone conversations cover the same topic...
"So....whats up these days?"
"Nothing re...the usual...what else?"

And you think...When will these days pass...they do of course eventually...but the time till that moment comes when you have a phone call that says...
"Heyyy...I have some news!!"
That moment is what you crave during this lurking sad phase of life...(okay...Sad is a harsh word...would BORING and Lifeless be a better substitute?)

Apparently...had one such conversation today...

Was telling my friend...who is an employee of Infosys...about how todays newspapers are flashing the news about Infy hiring about 20 thousand freshers even in this crisis period...and that too with a 8% salary hike than previous freshers!
"I cant understand mann....all other IT companies have freezed recruitment....how can Infy afford to do this?"

And then came the analysis...
"They are cuting down our salaries...they wont remove people...they will hire more freshers...and bring us and them to our salary level now...Also...they are planning to increase the hirarchy structure wherein getting promotions will take longer...So...Basically...what the most "ethical" company in India is telling the media is just half truth....to generate hype...but they are doing more than just hiring...they are reducing other costs in its place..."

"Hmm...Clever people" I said to myself...
After all...In this country...playing with words is all you need to make lotsa money...meltdown or no meltdown...

You know...there are some people in your phone book or your messenger list....whom you wanna call or chat...even though there is absolutely NOTHING to say...
Strange it is....how you miss even the silence in such relationships!
:-)

Was thinking about how i have inspired many people to turn to blogging...and about how it has helped them...I think its great that people write...its always good to have your story written down somewhere...
Someday when you are old...you can refer back to these memories...and may laugh,cry or just plain ponder over it...about how life has turned out...and was it really meant to be this way always...

I feel that every guy/girl in this world has a great story to tell..and each one has an equally interesting tale...its all about how well you can actually LIVE it!
(If this line doesnt make sense to you right now....don worry...remember it....it will soon make sense... )

So....tell me...WHAT ELSE?
