Fraud Fraud Fried

I rather skip the 'Happy New Year' pleasantry here. Will be quite an oxymoron on a space dedicated to my cribbier side :))

First things first I'm proud of the fact that I lived upto my No 'Why Me!' Month resolution for December 2008 in memory of the barbaric act of terror in Bombay. Made me realize, in a way, that there are bigger problems that life throws on people. Fighting back and working yourself out of it is the challenge.

2009 has started off on a miserable note for me... on the job front among other things. I'm supposed to be switching jobs next week. And guess where I'm moving to... Satyam Computers!!!

For a dramatized and sensationalized version of the story thats haunting me I'll only have to advice you to browse through our TV news channels. In the middle of all the chaos I couldn't still hold back a giggle when I saw some news reports that covered the Satyam fiasco with fancy titles like 'Shri 420' referring to Mr. Raju :P

I had been looking forward to this job change and the new profile for a while now... and my obvious reaction to this whole fiasco was one huge exasperated 'Why Me!!!!'

PS: If you're a head-hunter or a potential employer... I've just made your day :P

LOL!!! Nice ones. Thanks for sharing those with me.

Hilarious take on something that India Inc. should be ashamed of.

Thanx for dropping by.

However.. I have something fundamental to say about this 'Why Me' question... will mail you my favourite story about the tennis player Arthur Ashe (if you have not heard abt it).. really touching..

@Amit -

Mail me the story you've mentioned. I've heard about Arthur Ashe... but not sure if I've read the story you have.
