Monkey to Man to Donkey

Thanks to Monkeys we are now Men. Thanks to Men we are now Donkeys.

You know something..Indian economy is now travelling on Donkeys. If Donkeys are not there we would have been an underdeveloped nation for ever. I’m sure that none of our readers have the time to sue me if I name our economy as “Donkey economy”.

Now let us define Donkey economy “An economy which is driven by donkeys; where donkeys are the working people who can carry loads that no real donkey can imagine about. Wherein drivers of the economy (organizations) know that these donkeys can be loaded till their backbones break. Interestingly even if it breaks, it can be loaded with what it can carry.”

So..How much load are you carrying in a day?



Initially you get excited with the load, till the time you realize that the load is filled with waste clothe bundled in a clean silk cloth. When you are hired you are shown with the silk cloth, you say the same to others & you are immersed in a silky dream. Suddenly when you peep in to the bundle, you find more excitement..Wow..Shit spread clothes which can never be cleaned; grandfather’s clothes which are inherited for years; new clothes designed in the name of innovation which none other than a Spiderman or superman can wear. Hey..I am talking about the components of an employee’s role.
What does your role comprise of?

For a student still wondering whether the corporate world is the right choice for anyone, posts like these can have a huge influence.

So its bad as that, is it?

@ Sunil - I have happy stories to share, but they are not as interesting as this trouble story.

@ ad libber - We can't live without the traumas of traffic, inflation,bribe etc., etc., Corporate is a an younger devil, no need to worry.

@Rayshma- True. I think one should stop serching for grass & try enjoying the water inbetween :)
