A patchy road - From the archives …

When the road was being tarred, there was a car that was parked.

They could not find the car owner, and just decided to continue with their job.

When the car moved out of the road, it revealed a neat patch that was not done!!

Surely, the classical dilemma –

compromise on deadline for quality or

compromise on quality for deadline

– must have crossed the minds of those working on the road!


These are men at work! August 7, 2007

BSNL men @ work

BSNL men @ work (2)

… they are working to set right a fault in the BSNL lines on a rainy saturday evening! This was quite a unique sight along the kerb of a busy road in Indiranagar (in Bangalore). So what about it? Well, the working conditions! See these men … sitting in the mud and slush, under a tent made using a plastic sheet. I think they could have been better equipped.

I wonder who is to realize that people at work should get the right gear for whatever work they are doing!

I wonder if it is lack of education or awareness. I guess it is both. With education you know why you need what you should need and with awareness of rights/standards you would know you can demand those.

And for most part I guess it is ignorance and indifference …
