I the back :)

Dear makkas and makkis..hope allz well with u folks. Neria updates to share from myside aana elaam solrathukullaye maranthu poachu :( hmmm..pudusa laptop vaangien :) my biggest expense for myself tilldate :D aana use panna suthama timey ila :( my timings are such that i go home dead tired and poitu flat aaida vendi thaan. Today got net connection also..woohoo. Since there is no net in opice..atleast weekendlayachum inimay online varuven nenakren. Just noticed..regulara post potrunthapo i hardly had arnd 40 followers..ippo the count shows 66!!!! inimay postay podalina inum neria per follow panuvangalo??!!! :D :D

Neria changes on work front. I am always just another face in the crowd and have never ever considered myself as a leadership material. Unlike my sis, whose very presence will make you realise that you are dealing with someone with authority. More than authority..she emnates that "I am a responsible" person sort of aura of which i am the total antithesis of.

For some.. being a leader..getting things done from others come very easily and they somehow manage to get that "respect" or "fear factor" going for them in their favour right from start. Naan "kaaka kaaka" police vesham potaalum athu "Maruthamalai" vadivelu va mariduthu :( ennatha panrathu. Paatha udanaye kandupudichidrangapa..ithu kaamedi peice nu :(

Inga pudu opicela the team has gelled well and semmaya set aidichi. My damager was telling me that i should be more forceful in getting things done and dont leave things in loose was the message given. I've never believed in policing and if at all a person can be at his productive best its when they are trusted about their capabilities, has always been my point. The kind of environment where we are working..the timings..and the kind of regulations which we have in our work areas are quite challenging and they resemble prison environment in more ways than one!! The only positive thing to keep things going would be the atmosphere in the team and how we support each other.

More than anything its the distance which is killing..arnd 4 hrs i spend a day on travel itself :( semma tiring. Anyways...i've never seen much of chennai before and now that wish is getting fullfilled in all its glory :D thats y u need to be careful of what u wish for i guess :) I knew i wud miss my previous company a lot..but never realised it would be this much!! I've always believed that my ex-company was THE best place to work and my current work place only firms up my belief.

I've taken up a different kind of profile here..quite different from what i used to do and i am badly in need of a mentor. To put it simply..i donno how to behave in my current role :( Doing things is wat iam used to..getting things done from others!! well..thts something which is going to take a lot of using to. One sage advice i got was.."u need not always carry the stick to get things done wen u've already built a gud rapport"..Sounds good. More suggestions most welcome.

Inimay mostly weekend thaan posts publishing nenakren. Hope to continue for some more time :) Till next time..take care folks and belated Tamizh new year to you all.

//.."u need not always carry the stick to get things done wen u've already built a gud rapport".//

I guess this one line says it all,may be a lil patience is required too,and foremost thing is being authoritative,guess its bit tough.
Anyway good luck for this extra ordinary gils.

Gilsu - Can I join your team please. Badly want to crack practical jokes on the boss.

Congratulations on becoming a damager. Now red shirt is a no no !!

Btw, all that increase in followers is due to the viagra and assorted spammers who are feasting on your blog - your last post seems to have attracted much attention.
jollsu, //aahaa.. periya damagera neenga ipo? // so from today onwards we can call him.(bellbottom mudalaali!)...:)

I thought the chennai heat had roasted and toasted you, hence the long absence :)

Check the newly added followers - they may be your direct reports ;-)

lappie vaangitteengala? yaerkanamaey weekendla oru vaelaiyum pannuramaadhiri theriyala (all deciphered from previous posts ;-). ignore next few lines if you are good boy) ippo laptop verayaa! kaekkavaey vaenaam. Unga Amma ippadi pulambinaangannu, appdi thittinaangannu konja naal kazhichchu oru post varum. :-D :-D

vaelaiyaa maathitteengala? thought you were at your company's office in Mahindra City and before that on deputation to client location at Aamchi Mumbai?

As long as your team feels no constraint in talking to you freely, you are doing a great job (90% of the problem is in communication). You stand up for them when you think they are right and the team will do so for you when there is a need. And humour is a great bonding mechanism and you seem to have it aplenty.
RamMmm said…
@Deepa-You got it almost right. And you are cross-posting from one blog to another. :-D :-D Your Tamil is now as good as 50% of the Tamil populace. :-D Only another 10% to go. Go Go Go.

Here is the corrected meaning.

// neenga oru wayward researchera illama harvard researchera maara all thaguthi u've got

Instead of being a wayward researcher, you have all credentials to be a harvard researcher.
