Training , Burning & Learning

The prof wants something innovative for  weekly presentations during HCM class. Little did we know we had just two hours for the next class . So voila I wrote a poem on training and development in less than 15 mins. Happy with the feedback and glad that sir asked for the poem to carry alongJ


Training , Burning & Learning


I ventured out of my nest one day

Pressure comes to an end they say


Engineering , Bcom, Bsc and the like

Out of college, a job and a hike


Then I landed up in Infosys.

Big, big cubicles and management crisis.


Everyone is drinking coffee and chai

What am I to do here I let out a sigh!


Then came a monster called Mr. Manager

Said “I am your boss”, I could smell danger


I understood him to be an IDIOT of the highest order

Cos he told me I better be a fast learner


Training and development is very important

Blah, blah, blah he thinks he is omnipotent!


So I decided to excel at office

Microsoft excel, power point presentations came to my notice


No, no this isn’t enough the egghead said

It isn’t as easy as eating butter and bread


On the Job ( OTJ) training and Off the Job ( OTJ) is compulsory

Or else you will end up in a big, big curry!


I wondered whether Mr. Manager was always a fool

Or he became this way after using training as a tool.


Then I realised I need to be trained

Or else off they will send me via the next train.


So happily I went to start my OJT

Everyone had a smile & was full of glee.


Few were big and few were small

Few were long and very strong.


Everyone wanted the best piece of the pie

I just sat in a corner dreaming of Aishwarya Rai


Wake up, wake up don’t you want some knowledge?

I just wanted to be back in college!



Multiple rounds of explaining each step

My speed increased, I became refined and pep



Compliments I got one fine day.

Mr. Manager was all happy and gay!


He then sent me off for Off the Job Training

I realised this is never – ending.


Lectures, simulation and Out bound Learning

Why can’t they just have some singing and dancing?!


My level of learning was analysed

I thought they were out to get me penalised


Finally after 10 days of learning and fun

They told me I got a project to run


Imagine my happiness when I was assigned the task

Ace it I will, I am sure to last!


With the training I got I was sure to hit the stars

With the money I earn, I shall visit all the bars.


A shot or two wouldn’t do any harm

After all they took me in cos of my CHARM!!!

Mummy- The Irreplaceable

Mummy,  Amma, Ma. Just hearing this magical word gives a sort of comfort felt by every being in this world. Words can never describe the role a mother plays in the life of a child right from its birth .
My mother is someone who has carved me and shaped me into an individual who I may not say perfect, but does have values that am proud I have inculcated.
My mother, a self- motivated woman has been the sole reason people define me as sorted, head strong , disciplined,  self-driven and above all a ‘good- natured’ human being who has a sense of ‘ justice’.
To this day if I aspire to do something, I owe it all to my mother’s encouragement. Heaven alone knows whether I will ever find such a selfless person anywhere in this world.
Mummy, today I am sitting here in Mumbai beating the humidity, the heat. I miss your touch, the comforting words you tell me, the way you worry about me (though I don’t want you to worry), the way you pamper me. I admit I have often felt it annoying when you aske…


A foodie is someone who goes beyond just putting food into his or her mouth.  Foodies don’t judge people based on their eating habits, simply because they are too concerned about their own food to even care.  Technically speaking a foodie is someone who breathes, relishes, feels, celebrates and then eats food.   That’s the difference between a foodie and someone who just likes to eat.  The same difference between someone who owns a DSLR  and someone who actually has a sense of photography.
  As for me, when I see food, I go eeeeeeee!
So the next time you think you’ve spotted a foodie and sincerely wondering which category he or she may fall in, this checklist might help.
·Menu cards are souvenirs for them.·Their eyes light up if someone recommends a dish they find worthy of having.·While others are ready to gulp down the first thing that appears on their plate, foodies  analyse the texture, preparation and presentation.·They feel compelled to share their knowledge about a certain dish e…


Gambling amongst the chitter chatter, a small pause to catch her breath She rocked back and forth holding her little tummy, as though inside it were a child unfed.
Tears rolled down in all its glories to compliment the joke put forth How does one churn balooney into humour, with no one to provoke?
The unforced blush had a strong impact on complexions never seen These moments took their breath away, these moments didn't seem to demean
A déjà vu moment was felt around, the birth of a pleasant revisit Hungry they all became for more, cos no one wanted it’s exit.
The hero here deserved a pat on the back for this act of charm and wit. He gave the funny bone some good exercise, and made everyone’s ego quit!

Sometimes its nice to let yourself loose Laugh like never before.... Infact...its always nice.....
