V For Visibility

Sometime back a movie called 'V for Vendetta' came... it talks about a dystopian world suffering with a one 'fatal flaw'.. there is something thats going on in our project these days.. and its called 'V for Visibility'... i tried looking up the meaning of visibilty and this is what i could salvage on WorldWeb.. "perceptible by the eye or obvious to the eye" ... 'Visibility' per se means creating a slow and sustained 'high voltage impact' over a period of time.. a sort of slow-witted moves that may look foolish prima-facie but increases your 'Brand-Recall' and leaves your opponents caught off-guard.. sample this a perfect example.. you have accomplished a task ( the task was pretty trivial.. ) , but you created quite an impression by doing it.. writing a long artistic mail.. and then marking the copy of that mail to every person that was even remotely connected to this task.. so in the first place you have created an impact ( If thats what we call 'Visibility'.. ) and secondly you have marginalized your colleagues.. even though the task was such that even a dumb-ass can accomplish it.. ( hmmm.. mind you, i don't claim that i am correct... as i have not have much experience in machinations of this tech world.. this being my first company.. and the first project.. ) I am of the opinion that if you are working and working good then one doesn't need to indulge in this gimmickry to prove his/her worth.. the WORK should do the talking instead of this endless rounds of MAILS.. and i think most U.S. engineers are able to distinguish between them.. and i guess if they don't then either you also indulge in this mindless crap or look for greener pastures..( I don't belive that if you worked sincerly then you need to prove that you were working.. its for all to see and judge.. )

Bottom Fishing....

This week is one of those weeks on the indian stock markets that one would just had wished hadn't happened.. four straight days of pretty sharp falls and yet no bottom in sight.. and all what the retail investor is doing.. is to sit back on the sidelines hoping that things just turn around or trying to average out the stocks in the portfolio.. i am one of second types.. trying to average it.. and ride it out... together... and i tell you, you need to be pretty strong-hearted to invest in markets these days.. so i am doing bottom-fishing these days.. and yet to find the bottom or the occasional fish.. even though i am a skeptic but having invested so much.. you can't risk being pessimist on the markets now.. hoping that we hit the bottom soon and still not drown in this deluge..
