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!!!
