office office

25 Oct

Lots of people wonder about my work profile. some loved ones are worried. some jealous. so to confuse them further and entertain others in the bargain, i pen this post. I am employed in a very strange inspiring workplace which is led by a Jayesh Daulatjada aka JD aka Jade(to me).

This boss of mine, dear Jade, hides his enlightened status in his pocket. but he lets go of it daily for a few minutes when he sees anything faintly sweet. gujju che bhai. his springy yet dainty walk, his joyous demenour, his all inclusive nature, only goes on to prove his amazingness, layer upon layer. he was pre-trained by guruji to lead a bunch of zoo elements belonging to the WAYE office. As part of the rigorous training, guruji had him teach in many prisons of india, and Jade can therefore now brush off the utter madness that goes on in WAYE with such elan… as if he is an ice cream. His ways yield max. productivity with min. bitterness and no rules. i know u are now itching to apply.

Be forewarned of the pack of monkeys that rule WAYE within and without. prashant the happy money, eby the mad monkey, gauri(male) the naughty monkey and abhi the monkey monkey. they are the lil guruji’s who by being themselves, destroy any ounce of sadness that might prevail in the hearts of the co-zoo members. the feline creatures are led by rupal and ruchi, who elegantly paw in and out of the office at obscene hours. though they are tigers in their own right, RnR work like donkeys’ to make WAYE’s work more gratifying to our sense of sight. then there is rajiv, the eagle, who has a bike for wings, and has got a vigilant bird’s eye view of the entire ashram upto banshankari. kamaakshi is a pair of conjoint siamese twin baby elephants. desperately happy n cuddley. well, u know, she’s on the chubby side. gauri(female) is the ring master..cos when Jade takes a chill pill, which is more or less always, gauri mothers the lot. super lovingly and strictly albeit.

Tanu- the giraffe that chants, vibhavari- the hearteningly hardworking beaver, shru- the thick skinned rhino with a CA degree, chirag- the bull on the brink of enlightenment, krutika n chaaru- the peaceful pretty parakeets, maketh the rest of our zoo. (if i missed out on any names, u can mentally assume/take shape of the animal u want to be, jgd). well, i am more of dead skin/fallen feathers/tree in this zoo setup. i say this with half the intended embaressment becos i share this post with a dear co-employee. she’s the gorgeous peacock that cruises in and out of the zoo and only dances in the rain, thus rarely. srividya. thanks, u suddenly mean much more to me.;)

For those who dint get my twisted sense of pedestrian humor, i simply meant that i am not an integral part of the zoo cos my work revolves around “not doing any work”;). but this is my blog, so what the hell!! i am going to include myself dammit. i am the rare kuala bear. remember the bear that sleeps 20 hrs a day and goes into hibernation for most of the year? yes thats me, cos w.r.t WAYE office i come alive only twice a year; summer (magic) and winter (break). so waiting to awaken myself with you this winter break! until then, yawn;)

P.S. Next time when u visit ashram and bump into the zoo creatures, do take a moment to applaud their full time commitment to this NGO zoo…..and in here, feeding the animals is permitted.;)

    Purely animalistic post… (don’t know what that means but sounds good. Seems like i have been bitten by Priya).

    Btw, you effectively use your blog to issue licenses to yourself to sleep and be lazy and not do work that you are supposed to do and dont like!!! Thats not being a good rolemodel, or a good role to be in, and doesn’t befit the good model status that you enjoy!!!

    Bau was saying if zoos make you so koalaish, may be you can be dezood for an year πŸ™‚

    Haha, Priya! Can I be the occasional pigeon, who sneaks into the zoo and troubles the ring master (Jade).

    but things get done with such efficiency…. and creativeness..

    BnD, Marsupials make the best zoo animals! they are so cuddly and accessible, Kaolas being the best of them all! Please dont “DE-ZOO” it! instead just feed it Eucalyptus leaves instead of “Human food”! ( that is their fave food) now, that should wake up the Kaola! πŸ™‚ LOL
