As we are well aware about the Corporate Life which almost follows ONSITE – OFFSHORE model so something striked my Mind which I am goin to share here in another few minutes. Here I go.
People move to Onsite for short terms as well as long terms. There are a FEW things that everyone at Onsite would really MISS during the ONSITE Trip.
Family…Frnz…Well Wishers…tasty food of India (especially Mom’s food)…pani-puri…kulfi…sundal @ road side…Snacks at beach side and lots more.
One thing I have noticed is…a tremendous change in the Life style of people who have been to ONSITE. I will share a few of them here –
Apart from earning more money, people have learnt to be very organized. They take up responsibilities and plan well. Hey..this doesn’t mean that people at OFFSHORE are out of Track. They are also Perfect in their work(coz I am from OFFSHORE right ! ). I tell you the reasons…why people become organized when they are at ONSITE.
In India, you would always have people around, so its easy for you to even visit a new place without even having an idea of that place earlier. “anna…andha place ki eppadi ponum, inge nalla hotel enga irku?, Andhra mess deggara lo undha?, Velachery ke liye konsi bus main jaana hai…etc etc etc”. And you get spontaneous response too. But when you are at ONSITE, no one would be beside you to ask such questions. So you always carry a Map wherever you travel else you will be caught in the jic-saw puzzle there. This way you learn to be Independent.
Now one more…in India, there are various modes of Transport facility available to reach to any place so people at India bother less when compared to people who are at ONSITE. But there, nobody waits for you. and by chance you are late, you should be ready enough to face Bad consequences also. At times they need to empty their wallets to reach the destination. That’s where ONSITE guys have to stick to be PUNCTUAL. Tell you something…You even learn to manage their Finance by being PUNCTUAL. This gives chance for YOU to learn about MONEY MANAGEMENT also. The last line holds good for people at OFFSHORE too…especially me !!!
Let’s go to the next one…At OFFSHORE, you have different ways to showcase yourself but what happens…very FEW really take this as a challenge and work on them. People who used to be lazy in India become very active at ONSITE because they need to take care of everything by themselves. This is the time when the people take up RESPONSIBILITY. There would be times when You start feeling lonely at ONSITE. You start realizing the pain when noone is around you for caring. You would like your Family..Frnz..Dear ones, nearby you to share things. I guess you would have caught the lesson by now. Yeah…You will understand the Value of the person you care and go for innovative ideas to get in touch with them somehow(orkut, messenger, calls and so on). There’s a similar saying related to this situation…”You understand the value of a person only when he is far of from you.”
Here comes my favourite part…wanna know that?
Guys at ONSITE will definately learn to Cook. These days, many girls are looking for this criteria a lot. This adds additional benefits to the girl to select her Life-Partner. These days, I feel very happy when Men spend time in kitchen because this will make them understand the pain Women take spending time in kitchen.
Hey…I totally agree that i am not a professional cook but I don’t have worries that I should always prepare food at home because Young Men are also more competitive these days. In the early days, my brothers used to ask to prepare something and get for them but now…believe me, my brothers prepare variety of items…that includes sweets [carrot ka halwa] also. Many of my frnz (Young Men) have started Enjoying to cook these days. A few of my Frnz told that Cooking has become their Hobby…in other sense, their Passion !!!
A single Onsite Trip in a person’s life can make him/her very CIVILIZED. Every individual should experience an ONSITE to implement the exact definitions of these common words atleast once in his/her LIFETIME [PUNCTUALITY, RESPONSIBILITY and of course COOKING].
