What's happening? Recession, job cuts, pay cuts...

It's been quite some time since I wrote about what's happening on my professional front, what is it I am doing and am I going the way where I intended to? Well, come to think of it, it's more of a philosophical question than a straight objective one. Don't agree with me, well...that's what I think.
Anyways, these days I am working on creating a major chunk of online training for one of the global electronics major (can't disclose details for obvious reasons). We are creating web based trainings for them, been a very tiring project so far largely due to lack of clarity on what they want. It's very difficult to manage a client who is not even sure about the basic requirements. Another is quite an interesting project, we are developing a small mobile app which will used in the EMEA region of our organisation. Am really missing my flash development days!!!
Been hearing a lots about recession, job cuts, pay cuts. Touch wood, but nothing much has drilled down here in the IT industry in India. Of course there have been cuts, but those are more of waste cut than the cost/job cuts. I agree with Abdul when he said the more you talk about it, more you get worried about and more you get distracted from your work in hand. I am pretty clear on this one, we will think about crossing the river when we reach it :) 
I am sure prople here have different views, tell me yours for sure!

Angry, Disturbed, Disgusted: My emotions!

It's been over 3 days since the Mumbai Mayhem ended and it's been 2 days since our very dear politicians have started doing what they are best at: Barking!!

I read a placard in one of the peace marches yesterday "The politicians speak and divide us, the terrorists fire and unite us" true, I mean the least these idiots can do at this time is shut their f***ing mouths and sympathise. NO WAY!!!

Their insulated and inflated egos make them speak in patronising tones to a martyr's father. They make fun of a multitude of mourners. They make light of a calamity that has not only claimed lives but scarred whole families. They continue to show the world that if there is one are India exceeds everyone else is the lack of brains, heart and all the vital organs in our political system.

What we need as someone rightly said is another no-cooperation or a Quit-India movement here. We need to show these idiots that we don't need lame donkeys to sit on their asses and keep gulping my (taxpayers) money to feed themselves and their dogs (actually, am still ok feeding their dogs!!)

I am angry, disgusted, and disturbed.
