If there is any one letter which dominates I.T industry like anything, to me, that would be the letter "P".
Project,Process,Performance,Product,Portfolio,Position,People,Personality,Profile, Place nu "P"la start aagara pala matterla thaan (P for) pozhappay oduthu. In short..I.T would be in "Pit" without the letter "P".. contrary to the literal word :)
Aana..ithelaam vida mukkiayamaana rendu "P" factor iruku. Athaan..."POATTU KUDUKARATHU" and "PETER UDRATHU". Intha (P for)Post..is dedicated to that :)
One songi person (naanay thaan...A,B,C nu enna per poataalum..ithu naan thaanu solla poreenga..so en peraye potruen) pitiying himself over his state of life and bracing himself for the cross country multiple obstacle journey back home from office awaits his daily pickup shuttle in office entrance. He notices one creature in coolers and jerkin with wires jutting out of every possible open space in his body.
"Ithelaam pethaangala illa senjaangala. Enga veetu electricity boardla kuda ivlo wire irukaathay" nu manasukkulla yosichings.
"echuseme...wen will the cab for teynampet land here?"
"Ennnaaathu...cab land pannuma...dei..engenthuda vara nee"
"Actually i am coming directly from onsite. U know.. U S of A"
"Panguni veyil palla kaatikitu ilikuthu..ipo ethukunga jerkin"
"Actualla inga climate enaku set aagala. Oray cold. Jaladosham u see. Cold othukala. Athaan Jerkin potukitu iruken. Ithu kuda anga vanginathu thaan"
"Saravana storesla vaangina sticker kuda innum pikala. Americala vanginathunu alattala..irudi unaku iruku" nu manasukkulla garuvikitten.
Adutha naal client call. Peter mamava clientku introduce panrathukaga thaan meetingay.
"Guys..let me introduce myself. Probably neenga pesara slang US makkaluku puriathu. So you guys can note how i talk and pick it up from me" Peter maama added with a wink.
After dialling in the conference code..everyone logs in. "Hi. This is peter maama here...if i am not here...car odathu..bus odathu...avlo en..watch kooda odathu..naan avlo nallavan vallavan..matter terinjavan...blah blah blah" nu oray petero peter.
Gils looks at A.
"...shame blud" says A.
After few minutes silence from client side..client damager speaks. "Excuseme..peter mama. We dont understand local Indian languages. Can you talk in english please"
Peter mama moonjia paathu naanga siricha satham..fone mutela potrunthapo kooda cleintuku ketrukum nenakaren :D
A and B are seen staring at one client requirement doc with puzzled look on their face. Peter mama asks them.."What happened dudes..why sogam"
"Intha client requirement onnumay purila athaan"
"Isit...give it me maan..let me explain it to you...hmmmmm...so simple maaan. Client want to maatify one photo. Athuku enga aaani adicha saria irukumnu keturukaan. Ithula enna doubt. Sevuthula thaan aani adikanumnu Functional spec prepare panidunga. Technical team vanthu entha type aani..evlo peria aani..entha type suthi vachu evlo thadava adikanumnulaam avanga details fill paniduvanga. Testingku anupita matter over. Thats all. Ithku yen man ivlo worries"
A and B manasukkulla "adai...ithu engaluku teriatha...perusa vantaan solrathuku"
"Athilla maams...test case prepare pannanum. Anga thaan sikkal. Engalaam aani adichi test panrathunu oray confusiona iruku"
Peter maama looks around. Thoorathula he spots damager approaching. Udanay loud voicela..."ada...ithu kuda teriaatha. Let me take the ownership for formulating a process for this. Once its done..you can document it. Send the soft copy to me. Hard copy to client and filter copy to our damager"
Damager passes by that very instant and on hearing the filter coffee part..stands by for a minute and gives an appreciative glance at peter maama and praises him for his intiative..innovative..informative and innum ennamolaam "tives".
"cmon guys..let me show you engalaam aani adikarathunnu"
"Mudhalla ivan mandaila adikanumnda" nu A porumikittay coming.
Petermama leaves the scene. A and B are very tired after several rounds of testing. Damager comes again that side. Both look at him to get the same appreciative glance pointing to the wall..which now resembles HELLRAISER pei.
"Which fool of the idiot of the fool of the ass asked you to adichify ithana aani...remove pannu man...immediately. Client vara neramaachu"
"Sir..vanthu sir...ithelaam Unit testkaga adicha aani..ithu regression test..anga mothama moonu aani onnu mela onnu irukulla athu thaan integration test...ithula entha aaniya sir pudungarathu"
"Neenga adichathu poooravay theva illatha aani thaan. Poi ellathiyum pudungunga ponga" bellows the damager and leaves the scene.
Ithellaam terinji thaan namma munnor Aani maasamnu oru monthaiye aanikaga dedicate panirukaanga pola nu polambikittay A and B started their magathaana job from the start.
Onnu uruthi. In I.T there can never be a lead who will be "man of the masses"..there will only be "man for the bosses".
