MBBS !!!

You come across many people in your work life who seem to have this "Devils Wears Prada" actions to the core. So now that we all have entered the rat race would anyone add what kinda work colleagues they like?

My personal taste has always been for a team thats young at heart. Nope the fairer sex in such a team doenst wear mini skirts and neither are the men all Machos, rather they have an attitude and a mind of their own and that what makes working with them a pleasure.

They are the kinda people who are hands on and who by their sheer energy brings so much to the team. I personally have some of my team guys who are just too good at rolling their sleeves and getting their hands dirty especially when they are not fire fighting. Sure we havent won each time we competed, but then who cares about loses as long as it WAS a team effort and each person undoubtedly gave their best.

But having said that its also important to work with people of different abilities, because at the end of the work day you are thankful you are amongst the priveleged class and hence wont have to take such obnoxious morons anymore and not just that, you seem to appreciate things around you so much more !!!!

Unfortunately most of my Team guys have moved to greener pastures. Some left, some moved to a different project, and others to different business units and when it was time for me to leave we all got together just one last time to celebrate what we call "The Work Life".

Needless to say, it was indeed a pretty good send off party and while I may miss them more, I am sure I am being pushed around to this part of the world only to experience more....

Right now, the present team is filled with all MBBS or expanding it a little more "Member of Big Bum Society" where the only focus is on warming of the seats and procrastinating during crisis to finally doing rounds of the beaurocracy thats so very prevalent amongst the political class...

Its an attitude thats very much existing in my countrymen who still go by the belief "The Winner Takes It All". I agree not everyone can be a Gandhi and lead by example but is it so difficult to be principled than molly cuddle the decisive class?

I would rather survive on plain water than do that and for the rest of the people who do so, good luck and best wishes for some better sense to prevail soon enough....
