Nayi Company..Orientation 1

Hey ooparwaale... Kuch cheezen mini mushkil hoti hain na.... jaise blog likhna... aur wo bhi wo blog likhna, Jisé likhne ki bekaar koshish aap pehle bhi chaar baar kar chuke ho!
Dear reader.... practically I wrote the beginning of this blog thrice before today... and each time due to some or the other work left the blog in between.

Never mind.. trying to be a hardworking blogger... i'll re begin.

First of all an apology to the listeners from kota. I'll soon send my replies to all of you. I hope you understand my situation. Leaving you people actually made me feel guilty. No choice however. Abhi wahi kar Rahi hoo... Jo zindagi karwa rahi hai kar rahi hai.

In fact... I am in jodhpur these days. The sun city. Today itself I completed 10 days of being on air ... ladkiyon ke liye kehte hain na... pyaar ko chahe bhool hi jaaye taareekhen na bhulaye. U'll ask me... howz da place. I an happy with the listeners. But taking time to form any opinion.

Vaise at this moment I wish to describe my first encounter with the new life here. Not in jodhpur... but in mumbai. We had our orientation there. Orientation bole to.... your introduction to the new company.I received my tickets from Delhi office and boarded the train alone for the first time for such a long distance. (I know main gavaar sound kar Rahi hoon... par I'm being genuine.. ha) during the journey I was two things.
1. Ek kilometre me diameter mein there was no girl in my coach.
2. The South Indians who I was travelling with were all non.Veges. so beta saavi ne life mein pehli baar non veg coach share kiya. Haha

Anyways... I reached panvel station from kota at 5 in the morning. Caught a Meru cab for Mumbai. The driver Saab was from UP and good to talk to. An hour long journey ended at meera CHS. The official guest house u see. I reached at 6:30 and the office time was 9. So immediately after the breakfast and mai- panhuch- gayi sort conversations finally headed for the lift. Yahan bhi Pata chalta hai kya. . No girls in my guest house. Sab bande. Ohh. It's not so that I like girls in that way. But hota hai na. Koi smile karne layak to hoti. That's a girly little thing you know. Never mind, CHALIYE AAPKO OFFICE LIYE CHALTE HAIN!.

Office... wo ek mall mein that 4 thi floor par. Again a lift. (Dear reader.. if you don't know this about saavi... I am not really fond of lifts and escalators. I prefer stairs instead.) A huge lady waited to check us up at the office gate. I wish she smiled- I bet she could have looked prettier. What I liked about her was her sincerity while- I mean it- if she smiled- she could have looked like a human being. After our signatures and all we were guided to a board room. In between, the office was huge as a party hall. And trust me- baaraatiyon se zyaada employees they wahan. Bas, department ke hisaab se baaraaten alag alag thi. Finally, I joined a group where many were better than me and almost everyone older to me. You see, jaate hi laga- yahan to sab bade log hain. Finally I acquired a seat on the left. The third seat. which remained mine for the next five days.

On my right was Ranjan- who joined as an on air scheduler. And the only person in the hall who I thought was more bothered than me. There's one thing that I understood out here. Your previous job experiences never move out of your head but you have to forget everything in the present. To proceed further, we were greeted by a lady fairer than the the face-cream-advertisement-waali-girl. Agle Paanch din tak wo ghazal ki tarah aati aur kahaani ki tarah nikal jaati. uff! Khoobsurati bhi bala hoti hai (from the side of the males in the board room.)

So practically, the life was now no less than Chennai express. Train kahan jaayegi ye to pata hai par hit hai ya flop. Pata Nahi. All we could do were 3 things:

1. Ask the person beside us- from where are you??
2. Look at the orientation plan sheet- behaving as if I-am-waiting-u-see.
3. Gaze at the board room walls/ sheeshas- trying to be a super analyst- who would now submit a fresh report on walls of the board room soon!

And one more! Check the 3G phone uselessly.
To be continued....

Nayi Company: Orientation 2

continued from the last post...
Dear Reader, here I'd like to mention- if I'll describe all the sessions from the orientation you'll probably not feel interested. So, instead of boring you just a few excerpts. With the tags I'd like to give to a few people!

The best session I found was the creativity one. Mr. Dheeraj Kumar was the mentor and I bet agar creativity Na hoti- life worth living bhi na hoti. You motivated me Mr. Kumar. Hats off. What I liked about your session was- you weren't diplomatic at all! Hata off! aapki chashme waali aankhon se creativity tapak rahi thi!

Meeting Tanya Kaushal was another incident. Older to me by at least 7-8 years Tanya was really particular and she loves English music. If she's watching Bigg boss, don't dare to disturb her. Tanya, if read this ever- I loved mentioning your qualities in that describe-your-partner session. What I liked about you was- though you don't mingle up with people hard- but you were soft to me. Why? I don't know! I won't miss you Tanya... but won't forget you either.

THE WONDERFUL SMILE: Mr. Suresh and Mr. Rajesh
By reading the names dear reader, you might be thinking- five star ka advt???@@ AAh no! Mr. suresh and Rajesh were south Indians and I admit the most sweet ones. Their smile ohh it made you feel heavens. I know Iknow you might be thinking Saavi bandon ki smile par fida! Ji nahi inki simplicity par moe-than-happy hoon main! Aur ha, ther best part- ye baithte bhi mere saamne ki row mein they!

Why Mr. Sachin 'I'. Ohh because we had two sachins in the board room. The one I am talking about was from sales. Sachin I guess mujhse age mein 4-6 saal bade to zaroor rahe honge. And by that thinking unka mujhse zyada thoughtfull hona banta bhi tha. But no, this was a liitle different. He has aspirations- and I hope he fulfills them soon. If we were there for lunch, he shan't forget asking me - Saavi! u.. and that was decent too! Dear Sachin, if you are reading, stop thinking- you'll do wonders!

Mr. Amit was the only person in the boardroom whom I knew before joining the new concern. He was my facebook friend. I knew he writes quite emphatically, but the reason I realized was this time in orientation- his singing, his spirituality.

With this long name- you might think- Aanandh must have ben 35+. But no, I guess Aanand is not more than 27. Anyways, blessed with an old Maru gf, he seemed to be the most formal person as I met him. But just seemed. I think due to his proximity in the seating process- he was my internet-chalu-kar-do colleague. Thanks Thorat! you helped me with my phone. But, I should have been happier, if it worked!

With the tag it must be clear Pulkit did ask many questions. Mujhse bhi zyada. In fact sales mein hote hue. You were a genius. When we were in school, ek baat kehte they... sawaal aksar periods nikaal diya karte hain. So pulkit's questions were actually non minded by others. But pulkit, I did not expect that question- Why is your bag that heavy! Oh bless me.!

Ohh everybody in the boardroom knew that- especially after that intro session- where RJ Sachin described Bala. Bala was another south Indian in the group and trust me all I met were good. Khair, best about Bala was- he was simple- simply simple! Bless you Bala- And my suggestion- catch a girlfriend!hahah.

Aayush had to join Goa. He reached the session on the second day I guess. But seriously, I was so very relieved to have a Rajasthani acquaintance! Jaipurite Aayush.. Right??

RJ Sachin: I won't tag this person. But he was good. Phir simple kahoongi to aap kahenge ye bhi simple- wo bhi simple! But then sachin: I'll read your novel.. bas likh lo!

Mr. Girish: He was another person who I think I should mention Akele hindi bhashi! Sir, language power hai!

There are others who I think I should mention. Butttt aap padh nahi paayenge! sO, JUST LAST!

THE BEST MOMENT: The product presentation. Seriously after the presentation- Iwas most satisfied. Ab tak 4 din mujhe lag raha tha... can I and after the presentation- chalo! I am not dead. Creative karke achchha lagta hai!

And dear reader, agar aap padhte padhte nahi thake hain... saavi likhte likhte that gayi hai! so spare me!

Aaye bhi, Baithe bhi,... aur bin kuchh kahe... chal bhi diye!

Dear Listener (Yahan off course Reader), I apologize. Sry for not declaring my departure. For not letting you know that probably Kota will never be able to hear my voice (on air) again. PROBABLY, 30TH NOVEMBER AAKHIRI HI THA!

You know, more than you people, my heart sank, my life slipped into questions, my tummy clinched inside- as on 30th November I said, aaj Kota mein Saavi ka aakhiri, 'Humse Bachke Kahan Jaaoge Babu...'I guess isse pehle ye line kehne par I never cried. (doosre rote honge to pata nahi... but at least I never cried.) Par iss baar I couldn't stop. U know aansu aur bina kaam ke sms roke nahi rukte. AAh.(YOU KNOW WHAT, I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE COURAGE TO TELL THE LISTENERS THAT I AM GOING- SO I DIDN'T SPEAK THAT ON AIR. BUT SOMEHOW, THE WHOLE SHOW THAT DAY WAS LOW) Khair, I am sure, even you must have had that question- Saavi kyon?? Kya hua? Has the company chucked you? Zaroor kisi ne zyada paisa diya hoga? And greatest of all Shaadi to nahi ho rahi?? Uff!!

I know that is not your mistake, thinking and imagining that I probably had a Thakur v/s Gabbar waali ladai with Tadka and now badle ke liye- Saavi chhodkar jaa rahi hai. But seriously, sometimes... nothing of the sort happens. In fact, jahan main 5 saal 11 maheene rahi... jahan 1000 episodes (bina chhutti ke) poore kiye... jahan ghar se zyada maine time bitaya... jahan ki team is no less than my best mentors...wahan se jaana was just like - mujhe exam mein answer aata hai- par likh nahi rahi hoon...I know I can top, par bas fail hone ki koshish kar rahi hoon! Life aisi hi hai.

Any ways, the original question: Saavi ne chhoda kyon? I have heard the film stars saying- " humein falana film ki shooting karne mein bada maza aaya... it was like a family on the set" But urgently, lets not forget.... every film's shooting does come to an end. Nahi to- agar amitabh bachchan taaumr agar sirf 'vijay' bane rehte to kya chalta? Mamma ki shaadi se unka bhi ghar change ho gaya. And jaise khaane mein aap har roz kuchh ek jaisa nahi kha sakte waise roz saavi ko kaise sunte?? To bas, socha- Achchha to hum chalte hain! Phir kab miloge?? na tum jaano na hum!

Aur ha, sabse badi baat, mere jaane se kaiyon ko space milegi. Naya talent saamne aayega. Logon ne socha hoga... kab se kundali maarkar baithi hai saavi... ye jaayegi to humara number aayega... To bas, ek social decision lete hue- kaiyo ko naukri ka mauka dete hue- MAINE TADKA KO BBBBYE BID KAR DIYA!! :)
