25 years of head-banging fun!


One starts a software life totally excited,
Does work and slogs completely satisfied,
Mental fatigue and confusion pitches in uninvited,
Retirement mixed with weariness invites earlier than expected!

PREETI said...

Narayanan said...

just think of those blessed people for whome this profession barged into their lives !!!!!

Ela said...

Ithu enna preparation for weekend aa?

If u r getting restless then start a software company and after few years sell it to some big players.....then with that much of money, it will be...sun, beaches, beautiful girls, music.....

Gayatri,
Wogay aapicer.

Preeti,
If in other professions the retirement age is 58 or 60, in IT it'd be 45. Mudi ellaam pichikkum adhukulla for sure.

N.Anna,
U talking abt vidhu and you? he hee...Murder or Suicide - it all leads to death! :)

Ela,
U think starting a software company is like starting a Finance company?

Well, as someone nicely put it:

You spend half your life wasting your health to get money; and then spend the rest of your life wasting your money to get back your health.

Kinda fits in nicely with the IT culture don't ya think?

PREETI said...

QUIT! There r definitely a lota better jobs out there which r not IT...I never got into IT seeing my sis work...I'm into the manufacturing side...A lot better ofcourse, but considering my hatred for work, I'd rather quit...

Don't do wat u don't like to do...Trust me, it'd take its toll...

Why this philosophical train of thoughts from my side...?I dont know...But juz thought i should share my 8 aana... :)

Arun Sundar said...

Rahman,
Yup. It does fit nicely. Best thing is to settle down as a house husband..lol!

Preeti,
8 anna'va?? must be "gr8 anna", Kabali would assume. And I like 'IT'. Actually love it. But life gets tough at times. Cant quit for that. Summa olarify something in the blog, see people's responses and keep moving on in life.

Arun Sundar said...

Shiv,
kareeetu kareeetu.

Maxdavinci,
Ahem...agreed. btw, 'pa'?

PREETI said...

That's there...Be glad atleast u like IT!I have a friend who lives, breathes IT and it keeps me awe struck...So, if u like it, then tatz gr8...

And u can take it as gr8 anna, but i meant ettana...as in u know, tamil equivalent of 2 cents ;)

Arun Sundar said...

Preeti,
Ohh...ett'anaa'vaa?? I wonly over-assumed....anyways....

sabari said...

I am not sure whether it is happening only in IT...in this competitive world…in any fields irrespective of nature of job…it is jus banging the head and slog odd hours to prove urself ….so to summarize…vellai siyurathey kastamanathu than :) :) :)

Arun Sundar said...

Busy-writer,
4 lines for head-banging. 400 lines for the fun, which I did not write. No need to be discouraged :)

Sabari,
