The WFH regime

So when we read articles like this, we realise that it is injudicious to poke fun at this "work from home" regime. On one side, it is taxing, demanding and extremely exhausting for the people working out of home, and on the other part; it wrecks the dependent businesses. The irony is to know that the companies have an uphill task to deal with and that they are also probably the last resort for our problems in the offing. When a situation like this emerge, our natural (and understandable) retort is to count on our commitment that we all may have demonstrated for work in the recent past and sometimes at the cost and time of our families. Being someone working in the private co environment, I can relate to this article and the state of the people dealing with uncertainties, and I also feel that it is high time that the employers do not find their recourse in traditional polluted mindsets(payouts, headcount reduction et al.) and come up with solutions that empathise with the devastated condition of its people. Probably the Rejigs need thinking behind the people cost and more towards reconciling with this new world order

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks. 
The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr…

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have. 
I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat. 
I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing th…
