Fancy cell phones, swanky laptops…it was interesting
The first time I got to take the laptop home, I went “Yay”
I lifted the laptop with great difficulty and took it to my sis’s home. Show off, you could say……….
And slowly the realization dawns on me that a laptop means “any time work”
I had sat for breakfast today morning, when I got a call regarding work.I left my food as it is and opened the laptop….ensued by calls to some colleagues for help!
The thing to be noted here is that life spilling onto work is OK, or for that matter, the order of the day for most of us…we would coolly say, “I need to have a life”
And when work spills over to life, or even a weekend where you have no plans, it is a strict no-no! We complain, mumble, grumble and what not……
My parents looked at me sympathetically, saying things like, “these days children have so much pressure…” and heaving a sorrowful sigh!
But the best part is having superiors who help…makes things easier that way…
And finally when i was closing the laptop, my mom asked me, "mudinjudhaa, indha laptop galatta?" (is this laptop confusion over?)
i could only smile.....
So what is the moral of this post?
I was just trying to say that, when I still a student, I looked up at all those professionals and envied them, well, envied those things, that now, sometimes, I think are a pain, the cell and the laptop…I had wished I could have one, when I was a student…….
But now, I am more than willing to hand over the phone and laptop to anyone willing……
well…that’s life….you win some, you lose some…
and I love God because he made everything balanced, so none can be more blessed than the other!!!
On this platform of equality, anyone can be anybody!!!!
PS: I still love my job
