Harshad Joshi, Scooby Doo, and Anonymous are discussing. Toggle Comments
Naturally, you chose to go on vacation when Google published the results of Wordmasters. Is it hibernation?
Hello Harshad, It is Google’s loss that they did not find a volcano of talent in the guise of Harshad Joshi, Hari Menon, Deepa, Bot Hack etc. If they couldn’t find talent here, I can assure the gentlemen in Google that they will NEVER find talent anywhere in the world. This is because they have started a) over-rating themselves b) failing to spot real talent due to a bloated ego, c) they themselves do not know what it is they are looking for and d) they have all the curses of the 3000 odd participants in India dogging them throughout their lives.
Somehow I am till date not able to buy the story that the results were posted on a little known website by the name of Techshout. The whole episode reeks of vendetta and sabotage. It has killed something inside the thousands of contestants who took part so enthusiastically in the Wordmasters contest. Many had taken precious time out from family, friends and offices so that they do not miss the opportunity. If you remember, the contest was held on the most holy day of the Hindu calendar: it was the most important day of Dussehra and Durga Puja. Was it a planned attempt to rob so many people of other important agendas at hand?
I am sorry Harshad, but I find that a talented person like you should be looking for a job beyond Google. You can tell this to others who are crest fallen at Google’s arrogant attitude. This certainly is not the sort of treatment given to a self respecting, educated citizen of the world’s largest democracy.
You are right. I totally agree with you.
But then we should be ready for all situations in life. I know its very easy to say this in a perfect controlled environment, but then most of the times, certain things are completely beyond our control and our reach. The moment we accept this fact, let me tell you – You actually begin to conquer your sadeness and anger. By doing this, one can completely eradicate the unwanted disturbance and focus on good things that come by our way.
Anger is a very natural feeling. Esp when its apparant that we dont get what we deserve, we tend to become angry. Anger makes us aggressive and we just tend to lose the focus from our tasks, which may result in interesting and unexpected outcome. Just try channelizing the anger into a proper way and trust me – You will feel much better. My option is to go on long drives or listen to music. It helps me to keep my mind at comparative control and peace.
Regarding behaviour of MNC’s. There is some truth in that, and it will change, but it wil take some time.
