Nanhe’s First Night!

It has been almost an year since Nanhe is working in a Software Firm. Today is his debut. A debut of full night at office. The Board Members (PL/PM) have gone for picnic. Wow!! 😛 😛
So the team is playing without any officials. There are captains who are trying to motivate their respective teams. Nanhe is independent player though :)
He is neither developer nor tester. He is Configuration Manager.

So, Nanhe has decided to give you regular update on the same 😛
Hope Nanhe will have nice time @ office. He is alone with 16 GUYS. Oh My God, Nanhe loves the company of guys. :) 😉

9:30pm: All guys are charged up. Nanhe has dobne his work so he is free for some time. Rest are busy in closing and testing the defects. Oh what is this. A couple of guys are playing computer game. Well, it is a good stress buster.
ha ha The AC’s will not be working. So security has provided 4 table fans.
Nanhe is ready to have great party tonight. Company ke paise par aish. Pel ke chicken khaayega lagta hai aaj!!

9:50pm: Nanhe has just read the HR Policies regarding the reimbursement for working late. Total food reimbursement is Rs 150/- So, Nanhe will try his level best to eat worth this amount at least. Dinner is being planned. Lets’ see when will he go!

10:10pm: Leaving for Dinner. :)

11:50pm: Back from Dinner. Had awesome food and gossip.
Had Chicken Roast, Chicken Moghlai, Chicken Tikka and Chicken Biryani along with cold drinks and roti. Finally a full Meetha Paan. Yummie!! 😛
Everyone was surprised seeing our bloody idiot and slim Nanhe eating so much. Saale ne poora Paisa Vasoola!!!!!!
There were gossips:
1> Incentives mostly arriving with next month’s salary
2> There will be pay hike but only variable component. Thus there will be hardly any change in in-hand part.
3> College and Hostel Bhaks.
4> The role of PL/PM in project.
5> Nanhe’s entertainment

12:37am: Nanhe just called her sister in Hyderabad and wished her birthday. Did some timepass. The team is busy with onsite calls, defects and testing. Nanhe is having fun. His girlfriend promised to call in 5 minutes an hour ago. Nanhe is still searching for that watch which his gf is referring.
Arre yeh kya. Nanhe ke liye kaam aa gaya. Bahut Khoob.

1:20am: Nanhe finished with the job of branching. Now busy reading few articles on rediff. Few guys are yawning while few are trying their best to resolve the defects. Nanhe has entertained few of them with his pakau shayris.

2:15am: Time is passing by very fast. Nanhe is busy reading newspapers. There was a song session in last hour. Nanhe played songs like Kabza, Lakshya, few sad songs. There was entertainment from songs like Emotional Attyachar Gaali waala version, Sutta etc. All are enjoying and cracking jokes from time to time. Nanhe tried to sleep but woke up after 15 minutes.

3:30am: A latest dump was imported. Pointed a new application on that. Gave some Errors but now its hopefully resolved. Few guys have slept. This sleep is damn infectious. Nanhe is also feeling very sleepy. He must take a nap now. Now it is getting challenging for everyone to awake and complete work.

4:50am: Nanhe had awesome sleep for 70 minutes. Duw to some error, he was called as NSG for 26/11  by his project mates. The error was resolved in 10 minutes. Meanwhile, Kattu was dancing to reduce stress and others were laughing and enjoying. More than 5 people have gone to sleep.

5:50am: A hot tea was brought and Nanhe listened to few good songs on his cell. There is no work for him now except for support. :)

7am: It appears that all the work by developers is done. Some Testing is remaining only. Half of guys are already slept and will now take leave.

7:55am: Nanhe is finally leaving.

8:40am: Nanhe has reached home. Now lot of work to do. He has to meet Rao, Satan, finish with the court work, shopping, etc. Lets hope Nanhe is able to finish all his tasks today.

Have a great day ahead………….. :) :)

Frustrated and Pissed Off!!!

Nanhe’s sisters’ wedding is scheduled next week. But he is so unlucky that he would reach only couple of days before the marriage.
Reason: He is not getting leave from the office.
Few days before when he told his boss that he will take leave; his boss readily agreed but then days before she told that he won’t be able to get leave before 30th. This was because, a big and critical release is scheduled on 5th and the team will require support late night. Nanhe was very upset on this and requested to approve leave. But then in this time of recession, you need to be very careful before pushing things. Right?

Nanhe took his disappointment in his stride. Traditionally, a brother plays huge part in sister’s wedding but not Nanhe…. Well this is part and parcel of life!!! :(
Nanhe was asked to come on Saturday’s and public holidays. For last couple of week, frustration has started to creep in. Mainly because he was not having that much work. Last week he has filled more than 15 hours of idle time in his timesheet. Though he is available for full time and does not leaves his place; yet fill the idle time in timesheet. This was the boss told him. While the boss must be enjoying weekends with family, Nanhe is coming to office; sitting for 6-8 hours and leaving without doing any work. While his teammate will wonder why is he coming when their is not much work for him at this point of time. Yesterday, this happened for continuously third week.

As Nanhe was staring his PC; he was just getting frustrated. He was supposed to leave for wedding on Saturday but he was asked to work. He came to office and was doing work. What work??
1> Reading Newspaper
2> Surfing Websites
3> Writing Blogpost
4> Team Lunch
5> Nap for 10 minutes
6> Talking on phone
At a time when whole family of Nanhe is busy with preparation for wedding and slogging in the heat, Nanhe has so much “work”@office. A sister’s wedding is once in a lifetime and this release could have been handled by his boss as well. But she has “too many problems” at home. She is making him realize that she will have to slog for 4 days when Nanhe will not be there. Nanhe was so stymied that he was telling his friend,

“Bhenchod bola that ki kaam hai kaam hai to leave nahi milegi. Yahan aa kar sirf hilane ka kaam kar raha hoon. Aaj main nikal gaya hota to kam se kam 27th ka function to attend kar paata. Wo saali door rehti hai to mera problem hai kya. Ghar mein ghanta problem hai uske. Sab bahene thonk rahi hai m****chod. Itna yaha aa kar marao aur uske baad bharo Idle time. Main to maarne waala hoon uski. Naukri is not important than family. Uski Maa ka………. Kaam ho to samjhh mein aata hai but sirf apne faayde aur aaraam ke liye wo mujhe istemaal kar rahi hai. R****”

It is very true that his boss should have shown this much consideration that this is his real sister’s wedding.
Now he will reach home as the “Chief-Guest”.

He is so bummed out thinking that at a time when his father is looking for helping hand, he is doing nothing and is just watching all this helplessly. He has simmering anger within him and I just hope that he is able to control that else…

But whatever be the case this has given him a lesson that be very political and diplomatic in office. That is the only way out else you will be exploited always……………
