আবার সেই ইঞ্জিনীরিং পড়ার সময়কার গল্প। পড়াশোনা বাদে সবই করা হচ্ছে ঠিক ঠাক - না, এটা সত্যি কথাটা বলা হল না। ডিপার্টমেন্টাল সাবজেক্ট গুলো তাও পড়াশোনা করতাম - কারণ চার বছর বাদে ডিগ্রীটার মূল্য বোঝা যাবে চাকরির বাজারে। সেই সময় যদি ট্রান্সফরমার এর থ্রী ফেইস না বলতে পারি, তাহলে তো চাকরিটা হবেই না, তার উপরে… Continue reading Viva Voce

সবে চাকরিতে তখন ঢুকেছি। কলেজের দরজা থেকে চাকরির দুনিয়াতে লাফ দেওয়াটা একটা বিরাট ব্যাপার সবার জন্য। সুবিধার চেয়ে প্রথম প্রথম অসুবিধার সংখ্যাটা বেশি চোখে লাগতো। কলেজের স্বাধীনতা নেই - বরঞ্চ একটা গন্ডির মধ্যে সব সময় থাকা - এইটা বেশ ধাক্কা লাগে আগে। কলেজে প্রথম ক্লাস শুরু হতো ১০.২০ তে - তাও সেটা আবার বেশির ভাগ… Continue reading Gopal

We want a mature, patient, civilised world …. not to be ‘trigger-happy’

We live in a so-called civilised world driven by the power of law, which has been formed by thoughtful groups and lots of common sense.

What are you doing now-a-days ?

Very often, when people meet each other after a long time, you undoubtedly listen to the question "what are you doing now-a-days ?" - isn't it ? While we reply to that in our own ways (which basically means in our own "defensive" or "bragging" way), I often thought what exactly do people mean when… Continue reading What are you doing now-a-days ?

The scene of “obscene” pricing

Very recently some of my friends, including myself, were debating on the topic of the prices of the expensive smart phones available in the market and one of the common conclusions being drawn was that the prices can be labelled as "obscene" to a common man. That led me to think what defines this definition… Continue reading The scene of “obscene” pricing

Let’s follow Japan

When I started my professional career, I was exposed to something called The Quality Circle, which is encouraged by many organisations. Basically, it encompassed the philosophy of one Mr. William Deming - an American who was not recognised for his recommendations, who moved to Japan on an invite and was instrumental in the rise of… Continue reading Let’s follow Japan
