ENOUGH OF OFFICE OFFICE



I feel , we office goers, live just for WORK ...WORK WORK and paycheck...that's our life...especially we Indians...

I wonder, has anyone of you ever thought the same?

There is a restriction on when to go to bed ...Remember? you have to go to office again next day...Is it just about going to bed ? No...get up early otherwise be prepared to slog through traffic...Life has become mechanical... and it's not like you have an option..

Almost entire day goes in office and in travelling to office ...... And if your boss sucks, only god can save you.. You will "have-to" complete duty hours even if you have absolutely no work in hand..

After coming back from the office you are tired and suddenly realize -' WOW..I have wasted one more day ..'

But there is something that willingly pull you back to the office......guess what?? ..Salary ? Noo.. please note the word "willingly :) ..It's a pretty girl in your office......



The same girl you hope to see in canteen during breakfast , lunch and even in afternoon tea..and hope to see her sitting next to your chair....

But not everyone is so lucky and instead what they get is a damn serious boring girl with absolutely no dressing sense..But as I said - it's not like you have an option....:)

A bit diversion from the main topic, but what I want to say is, I hate to live as if we are born to just work and earn . Even in weekdays we should get enough time to spend with our family without getting exhausted...Why the compulsion of duty hours? If your work is over, you can live..

While living our super mechanical life, we often forget there is something called "SOCIAL WORK" or "CHARITY" .. when will we do that???.."tomorrow" will never come..and one day we will die..

So what we did ????????

Worked our ass off to get good numbers in school and college......then once we got a job, we ran behind money and paycheck to pay our bills ......doing nothing else..... and finally we die.


I wonder, if given an option, this is the life anyone of us would like to live??.........

Awww...that's the vicious cycle...but the positive part about this is that you realize it is...once a person begins to wonder at the madness of work, he begins to make efforts to create method in madness!

All the best!:-)
And remember-this too shall pass!

pRasad said...

Yup Suruchi..but this is not just about me.. it's about thousands of people I see everyday.. methods in madness vagaira thik he re.. but I wonder, are we living a life when we don't have sufficient time for ourselves??

your life is 10% of things that happen to you... & 90% of what you do to it...

there always are options... you make your choice... ;P

pRasad said...

Mishi said...

lol..you know what you can always manage to have time for yourself, its all about jus a lil effort..I have seen many people with busy mechanical lives yet having full social life..they spend time with family. do the charity too and sit with themselves as well...they are no super-mans , its jus they manage ...they put a lil effort in it..;)

best of luck with your life.
btw nice blog:-)

Geet said...

@prasad: ofcourse there are options... u choose the ones u think are the best suited & then say there was no other option...

in the quest to get ahead in life/love/career, u make decisions consciously... u may have chosen another option... ;)

pRasad said...

@Geet:

My job is the best suited option for my career.. and I would like to say, it's not just about me..it's about lacks of other people working in Mumbai..

IRFANUDDIN said...

so true....but you know this is what life is all about...."JEENAA YEHAAN MERNAA YEHAAN, ISKE SIWA JAANA KAHAAN"... and perhaps there is no option unless you get some better means for ur paychek.....

and i wish you get some pretty reason soon which can pull you back to the work place every day with a cheerful smile....:))

pRasad said...

@Mishi,
If your office is close to your house, if u don't have to travel much then u r the lucky one.. The people you have mentioned must be from same group..

@IRFAUDDIN,
Thanks bro :).. only you understood my pain :D
and BIG thanks for your wish :)))..I wl stop complaining..:)

Geet said...

@prasad: thaz exactly my point... you have options.. u choose what you feel is the best... juz like the lakhs of other ppl in Mumbai... ;P

pRasad said...

@Geet,

Geet said...

Mads said...

I liked the post....I am gonna start working in some weeks' time...in delhi...i'm planning to volunteer at a ngo on weekends after i get into routine @ work.... that's the way, i feel earning and working my ass off will pay....

been long time since i blogged or read anyone's blog..how are u? :D

pRasad said...

@Sush,
Always a pleasure to read your posts :)


@Ashwini
Even I liked to see you here :)

I never follow 9.5 working hours. I really don't understand why do some people care so much about these rules?.. Why to be so much obedient??..There is no such award called "MOST OBEDIENT EMPLOYEE" :D


@Mads
Volunteering for NGO ? Big Kudos :)
When I hear something like this, it inspires me more to help others in whatever way..
It's a pleasure to see you here and thanks for your appreciation.

I think one can always work things out ;)

Harman said...

nice thoughts penned down...
But I guess we all go through the same routine and enjoy weekends for a reason that we are free!
life is sweet with a pinch oflittle spice on weekdays..
