Carnation Not worthy of Citizenship

It was high time i got my car serviced.... Poor thing had not been for servicing past 8-9 months in which there was a trip from Delhi - Agra - Auriya and back..
Finally to my relief a new car service centre CarNation opened up near my office with a pick and drop facility...
To make sure they had a good workshop i went a day before to their service place in Noida sector -63 I guess...The office was good and the workshop behind that looked neat..
There were not many cars considering it was sunday..i asked them to pick my car monday morning and deliver it same day.I gave my name, number etc and took off..
Monday they did not contact..tues i contacted them to pick up..they couldn't, saying they did not have their driver free..
Finally they sent a guy to pick my car on wednesday..Cool i thought..Gave details of things to be done..
1. Normal servicing with engine oil change (forgot to get coolant checked)
2. engine tuning (my car was roaring like mad dog) etc..
In after noon they called up several times, that some engine casket had rotten, vipers not good some rings near engine need to be changes , i agreed to all that asking the price..
Then another call came saying that the headlight are not working and they need to change bulb..That started annoying me and started my suspicion about their level of honesty..Because my headlights were perfectly all right day before..and they were suggesting me to change all bulbs.. I reluctantly said yes thinking okay that will improve the dimness of headlights..
Finally i got my car delivered..The engine sound was same as before servicing..I had my doubts whether did any of engine tuning..
Then i found my autolock was not working..3 doors would not open up...i was really frustrated ..then when i went home gave the car to my brother and as he ws going i saw left tail light was not working..
I could just give a wild guess what the fucking thing they did to my car's electrical cabling..
Even a small garage has good mechanics who love to get the car going.. You need not tell them, coolant,engine oil and engine tuning needs a look..they do it even if u forget..
They make sure the car runs smoothly..
But these carnation people i dont think they have employed good mechanis who love cars and who have proper training or knowledge or maybe experience in dealing with a good car service..Their nation lacks the zeal for its citizens..they are here just to do step by step things from manual, not trying to do anything beyond that..they want to charge you for every extra thing..get parts changed short THEY SUCK AS A NATION FOR CARS..Do think twice before handing them you beloved...

EmPowering the Opposition

Yeah, finally to the relief to the democratic citizens of india, a stable govt is about to be in place. Yes and that too without much support from outside of the UPA. Thanks to the people who voted...Kudos to them (minus the mumbai people, dont you ever ask for a responsible govt)..

You guys Rock!!!

But ever wondered what will happen with this huge monolithic win...yes sir it may lead to unilateral thinking....thats where the opposition party comes in...Though i am a huge adverser of UPA but having too much faith is not my kind of belief.. they may not always be right..
Thats where the NDA comes in the picture..They had a great blow but thats another story..
This story is about from ashes to phoenix..
The NDA should delve and immerse itself in people and national development activities..It should start a revolutionary concept for the opposition.. here are a few pointers..
1. Start a people feedback system about govt policy, instead of going blindly and opposing every policy of centre at least try to gauge the view of aam admi. This will help them prevent their red face unlike the LEFT on N-Deal.
2. Support the govt towards national betterment.
3. remove advani and pro extremist..Time to build party support beyond hindus. Look out for some fresh talents and young guns.
4. Review the quaterly reviews the to be PM has announced on various projects and ensure that those reviews happen. If the govt is not able to answer you answer the public on the progress..but no politics here please..
5. Well the govt seems to be too busy for this.. But a national ticketing system for grievances by people where the opposition takes these issues to the centre for resolution will improve the party image drastically.. If this is is taken up by UPA, then the NDA is doomed for another 2 decades....

6. It time to do good for the people, by the people and of the people...

Sitting in opposition this year will give you ample of time to do revolutionary reforms as a opposition (because the UPA this year i expect is not going to allow any interference from opposition or allies). Its time to move beyond communalism, foreigner/aged implication on opposition, no agenda for reforms,ram mandir, loyalty to old advani.
Its time for all round development, inducting youth, inducting new ideas, stick to basics of people welfare, no more hindu vs muslim, supporting the good reforms from UPA, opposing only the bad reforms of UPA.
Why do you want to do public reforms only when you are in power. This year do what no opposition has ever done... File/propose a bill for things that were there on your election manifesto..Get your manifesto promises done even if you are in opposition..Welfare done to the people of india will always be visible even if implemented by centre..

The power to come in power is with NEW YOU and only NEW YOU....

IT Bubble

This is nothing to cheer about, but just to show how the problem of any hierarchical system affects the people at the bottom of the chain.

Once upon a time the government with Ruling Party XYZ.. had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

Ruling Party XYZ Said..
- "Someone may steal from it at night."
So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Ruling Party XYZ Said..
- "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?"
So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Ruling Party XYZ Said..,
- "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?"
So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Ruling Party XYZ Said.. ,
- "How are these people going to get paid?"
So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

Then Ruling Party XYZ Said..,
- "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"
So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.
Then Ruling Party XYZ Said..,
- "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost."
So they lay off the night watchman.

Moral of the story:
"Current Situation In IT industries"
