SHADOWING
critics, waiting to blame my team and me,but my ChairmanProfessor
Satish Dhawan took the mic from me and answered all the questions
confidently. His composure and his clarity of thoughtreally impressed me.
He said these are very complex machines. We have to find out what went
wrong,correct it, and thenmake sure that it's not repeated. He also
added,I'm confident that in exactly a years time, we can successfully
place a satellite in orbit. His last sentence made my heart soar. I had
hardly slept for the past week and I went straight to my room and fell
onmy bed. Exactly one year later, on 18July 1980, the whole nation was
watching us again. It was time for the launch that was going to change
the future of the Indianspace program. In the early hours of the day,
SLV-3 lifted off. The satellite was successfully put into orbit. Then I got
the opportunity to speakthe most important words I have ever uttered in
my life. Mission Directorcalling all stations, all stages performed
successfully and the Rohini Satellite is now in orbit. There was a loud
cheer everywhere. When I came out of the building, my colleagues lifted
me on their shoulders and paraded me around thelaunching pad. It was
my proudest and happiest moment. I was so proud of my team, the
whole nation was excited. India had made its entry into the small elite
group of nations that possessedsatellite launch capability.

Every newspaper carried headlines of the event. A press conference was


held onceagain and I requested professorSatish Dhawanto address it, but
this time, he turned the mic towards me and let me face the questions.
He knew how hard I had worked for the project, and thought I should be
given the privilege of facing the press. That day Ilearned how a leader
guides his team, taking the blame when faced with failure,and sharing the
praise in the event of success. I hoped that someday I could also support
my team in the same way.

Should we change the present system of education in our country?

For

- There is need for more innovation in the education system.

- More advanced technologies should be used in this sector in order to


compete with other countries.

- More and more amendments should be done to make students more


physically fit and mentally strong.
- Schools and institutes should focus more on the development of an
individual.
- Schools and institutes with education should teach values and manners.

GROUP DISCUSSION
Against

- The system is automatically changing and including new and moder options
to help students to improve their skills.

- The curriculum has already included the improvements like balanced


textbooks and they try to make it more interactive.

- Current education trends are using more technological programs to help


students grow and to increase their memory.

- Lots of programs is been conducted to help students to grow mentally and


professionally.

According to me the curriculum needs a revision on the prospects they are


providing in their education system to strengthen it more.

Self-introduction
First of all, thank you very much
for giving me this golden opportunity. I am Mona Choudhary.
I completed my engineering in computer science from Anna University,
Tamilnadu, and schooling from Delhi Public School, Delhi. During my
Graduation period, I had done three Mainframe projects and successfully
completed a training course on the Mainframe. I am excellent in planning,
analyzing, designing, and developing.
I am interested to work as a Mainframe web developer and my goal is to get
good opportunities on the same profile in your company. I have done many
successful Mainframe projects during college. Even though, I have just started
my career and don't have any working experience, but once I get the
opportunity, I will prove myself.

My hobbies are Internet browsing & searching for helpful applications,


watching news & discovery channel, playing Indoor games, listening old songs,
art & design. My strengths are self-confidence & dedication, positive attitude,
and hard work. My weakness is my soft nature that sometime harms me.
Thanks for giving me this golden opportunity.
your academics and have got through with flying colours!
Raj Kiran : Thank you very much Sir.
CEO : Well! Bright students like you generally proceed to foreign universities for
higher studies. How come you didn't opt for it?
Raj Kiran : First of all, my parents couldn't afford it. Secondly, I didnt want to as I
believe Indian institutions offer quality education and it depends on the students to
make the best use of it.
CEO : Well! You have done B.E. in
ComputerEngineering and have proceeded to do MBA and specialised in marketing
instead of doing Masters in the same under graduation subject. Is there any
particular reason for it?
Raj Kiran : Well! I felt a technical degree along with Master in marketing would
help me move upwards in my career.
CEO : That is good thinking! Certainly that's why you are here for this interview.
We are looking for fresher with such an educational combination to take on as
trainees.
Raj Kiran : Thank you very much Sir. Well! May I know how long the training will
be?
CEO : Training will be for six months. Initially it will be held in Mumbai. Later,
trainees will be shifted to the regional offices for on-the-job training for another six
months. Afterwards they will be placed in anyone of the regional offices.
Raj Kiran : Is there any exam to be passed at the end of the training sir?
CEO : No. No exam as such. But you will be assessed for your performance
through the entire training period.
Raj Kiran : Sir, when will I get to know the result of this interview?
CEO : Say, within two weeks. You see, we have scheduled a number of interviews
for this week. You have a bright chance Mr. Raj Kiran. Best of luck!
Raj Kiran : Thank you very much Sir. You're very kind.
CEO : You're welcome!

Is the boss always right?

For - The title boss comes with an experience:

-The title boss does show off some authority but only comes with an experience
and practical understanding of business. So, most of the decisions a boss would
make, he would make on the basis of practical understanding of the situation.

-Organisations usually have a reporting system which means that a boss would
make the decisions based on facts and figures. These will be well thought of
actions and would be right in most cases.

-The bosses these days come equipped either with a management degree and/or
have attended a lot of training programmes and work shops on team management
and soft skills. This makes them understand that they can not work without team
and have to give it due importance and credit. This again ensures that the boss
makes a well thought of decision based on the skills and opinion of the team. This
further increases his probability of being right.
Against - The boss is a human being too:

-The employees working in the frontline know the practical aspects of business
which the boss might not know but they always make a decision for the lower level
employees which many times are taken with insufficient information.

-It is a human tendency to focus on certain aspects while ignoring others and the
boss is no exception.

-We can not expect the boss to know everything, many a times an employee may
have an easy solution to problem than a boss. Many bosses are not able to accept
this fact and get into a competition with their own sub-ordinates. Many a times, it
turns out to be an ego issue for the boss.

-If the boss comes from different domain, he may not be technically as competitive
as some of the senior employees though he may be good at managing the team
and running the whole show. In such a case the boss may not always be right and
must ponder over the thoughts of his team.

-The boss may at times get into the favouritism mode which might dilute the
objectivity of his decisions.

The boss is a human being too and can have his own share of right or wrong
decisions. We as employees should not be judging him just because he is a boss.
At the same time, to run the organization effectively the boss must try to take his
team into confidence and try to grow himself into the role of a leader while getting
out of the shadow of the word boss which is a bit too strong.
Tucket was the saddest bucket in the world. He had once been the garden favorite,
the gardener used to swing him by his strong handle, as he went to fetch water.
What a good bucket, he said but as time passed, Tucket, the bucket grew a hole,
suddenly he was useless. What good is a bucket with a hole? Tucket was tossed
into the corner of the garden. He was left out in the rain and the Sun and began to
rust. Sometimes he even got kicked around. I should throw that bucket away, the
gardener muttered. Tucket didn't want tobe thrown away, he felt very sad, though
his good friends in the garden tried to cheer him up. The squirrels set him back up
when he was kicked down and the birds cheerfully flapped about him. Don't worry
Tucket- they chirped soothingly. Tucket really tried to be happy, but it was very,
very hard. One day a little girl, ran through the garden and stopped in front of
Tucket, he sighed and waited for the usual kicks, when suddenly he heard
perfect. Soon he found himself blinking and spluttering under the garden hose.
The girl was cleaning him, he felt heavy chunks of rust fall off and his spirits
brightened. Oh!You already have a big hole at the bottom said the girl as she
peered inside, even better. Tucket could not believe what he had just heard. She
wanted a bucket with a hole. The girl took him to the veranda, filled him with rich
soil and planted a tiny rose inside. This is a baby rose she said to Tucket. You
must help me take care of her okay Tucket was so happy, the girl really wanted
him, she even asked him to take care of this small rose. Tucket nearly burst with
joy, he straightened himself up proudly, as the girl finished planting. She carefully
placed tuck it in the best spot of the veranda. It was a cozy corner protected from
the wind and the rain and Tucket winked and smiled at his friends in the garden,
Look, I'm taking care of this little roseWe're very happy for you Tucket
shattered the squirrels and the birds chirped happily Tucket took great care of the
rose and was visited by the girl and his friends every day. Hewas now the happiest
bucket in the world.
