"A Wednesday" - Life of a Software Engineer...

Hi friends

My friend Naveen Swami (IIM Lucknow; STC) recently forwarded me a mail (after I insisted that he do so) from a friend of his, name Abhishek Dadhich. Abhishek had composed a nice piece on the current state of IT Engineers in the dialogue of the movie "A Wednesday" (whose review I had written here). All those of you who have seen the movie (and even some of you who didn't) will find this piece interesting.

Project Manager Rathore: Kaun ho tum...??? Kya pehchan hai tumhari???

Unknown Caller: Kaun hoon mein... Rathore saab, mein vo hoon jo aaj commitment karne se darta hai. Mein vo hoon jo aaj ghar jaane se darta ha, ye soch ke kahin ghar wale pehchanne se inkar na kar de...

Mein vo hoon jo aaj job change karta hai to sochta hai ki kahin recession mein mujhe company se na nikal de..

Mein vo hoon jiski girlfriend usse Friday ko dus bar phone karti hai, yeh poochne "Kya kar rahe ho...?? Kaam jyada hai...?? Thak gaye ho...??". Mera haal poochne ke liye ya kaam poochne ke liye nahi, rathore saab... balki vo ye jaanaa chahti hai ki kahin hamesha ki tarah end moment pe boss ke bulane pe mein Saturday ki date cancel to nahi kar raha...

Mein vo hoon jo breakfast ke time pe dinner karta hai, lunch time pe breakfast karta hai, dinner ke time pe lunch karta hai... vo bhi time mil jae to...

Mein vo hoon jo aksar phasta hain... kabhi Interviews ke sawaal mey phasta hai , kabhi Badi companiyon ke jaal mey phasta hai, kabhi boss aur client ke bawaal mey fasta hai...

Project Office ki bheed to dekhi hogi aapne Rathore saab... us bheed mein se koi bhi chehra chun lijiye, mein vo chehra hoon...

I'm the same old... STUPID SOFTWARE ENGINEER...

What do you think? Any ideas on any other such co-relations that perhaps I can work on?
