Welcome to new high-tech age. Everything is too fast to believe, fast traffic, fast growth, fast people. Young generation with motto "work hard party harder", trying their best to work harder so that they can party harder. But the problem faced is although how much you work hard..still you get very less time to party harder..or you can say that there is no time to party.
They are having all possible gadgets to ease their work, no matter how hard they try to leave office on time..its gets extended beyond the limits. Thanks to flexi hours..we are working 24 X 7 and eventually getting bonded to work 24 X 7. Whatever you plan for your weekend is getting overwritten by the plans related to office, unexpected downtime, sudden failure at data center, servers behaving in a kinky way and above all demanding business (our end customers). Something or other keeps us bonded to office. Even getting calls while you are traveling on vacation is not so uncommon. Every one's work is far far important than yours. After all you are recruited to be there ' With you, For you..ALWAYS" . This originally used to be motto of Delhi Police, but now it is being practiced buy other people more than Delhi police.
These high tech things which are supposed to ease up life and meet the deadlines are one of the root cause of missing time lines. Because of these the expectations had raised as if by just using the computers and gizmo everything can be done by a singe click of mouse. And the net result is either a missed time line after so many extended office hours or a messed personal life.
Sometimes I think the laborer working around my place are in a better position, after working full day they at least sleep in peace (although they also have a monetary insecurity in their mind).
Every one should have a different space for personal and professional life and try not to mix them.
