Lord Ram..sitting on the seashore with a worried look.
After convincing the Sea Lord to support him on his mission to build a bridge over sea, he is now left with the arduous task of actually building the bridge. He is seen comforted by Sugreeva, Hanuman, Jaambavan and Sugreeva offers his monkey sena to perform the monumental project. Hanuman is appointed the project manager. Nala and Neela take the role of chief architects. Millions of monkeys take to quarrying for stones and form an assembly line to build the bridge. They toil day in and out, cheerfully performing their tasks. There lived a squirrel family close by to the sea. Watching the monkeys helping the Lord in his quest, the squirrel family decides to throw their hat in the ring too. Without further much ado, they jump into the fray and begin to carry small pebbles. Lord Ram, moved by this noble act, takes the squirrel on his hand and lovingly smoothens its fur.
Legend has it that, the marks we see on the backs of the squirrels are the fingerprints of Lord Ram when he stroked them.
Ithula enga corporate culture vanthuchunu paakareengala. Matteruku varuvom.
Monkeysoda natural tasks/lifestyle enna? Kadalla kalla poatu bridge katratha?? Kandippa illa. Irunthaalum..avanga big boss..Sugreevan sonaarnu ellaam, went out of their way to do the task. Annual appraisalkaana goal setting document padi, bridge katrathu would have never been a part of their daily routine. Apdi paatha elaamay exceeded their expectations in that project. Like any project, project manager (Hanuman) gets the maximum appreciation here also and well deservedly too. Like any IT projects, intha bridge projectlayum, architects pathi yaarum kandukitta mathiri therila. (Wonder how many knows that Nala and Neela are the engineers of the vaanara army). Finala, no one knows any one of the zillion monkeys which did the actual work of throwing stones into sea and constructed the bridge. Akin to "Normal" developers who punch in lakhs of lines of code without even getting to see the light of the day and get rated as "Meeting expectations" at the end of the year.
Sila per are like the squirrel. They may or may not be directly involved in the project. Aana vara vendia nerathula..seiyya vendia velaiya..seria senji..aththanai limelightaiyum allikittu poiduvanga. And their contribution, however minimal, will be spoken about for generations.
