My New Company

Hello Every One.

This is my first post after i joined an new company (Schindler India Pvt LTD)

As my friends and family members know, i always wanted to quit my old job & join a better one. Well i was invited by the Schindler India Pvt Ltd to attend an intervirew, so on monday i had gone for the interview & it turns out to be a great one. I met Mr. Lakshminaraya who is an AO in the company at 9am, had a little talk about the company, my job profile, Etc... later on he told me to visit the Manager who was an Amazing guy. He was very friendly and was very enthusiastic person, after i finished my interview, Mr. Lakshminarayan told me he would call me if something arise. I thought, well it will be just like all the other interview's that i had before where they tell they would call me but they never will.

A week passed without any breez, but then Mr Lakshminarayan (LXM) called me and told me to come to office for some briefing, Went to the office in the early morning, and met Mr LXM.

He explained me every thing about my company and told me how and where all the company operated. I thought why is this guy explaining me all this...?

Then he informed me that i had been selected for the company. Could't Beleave It....

Came back home informed My mother first as she was also eager to hear from me. Met couple of my best friends and told them also. All were happy and i had to pay for the lunch which my friends had as a treat (SAD)... With a lighter pocket and heavy hopes i reported for the company.

It was a boring first day as every one was busy with their own work as Managing Director had flown form the Mumbai to analyse the performance of each individual in the company so every one were busy preparing reports and stuff, i was just sitting in an room thinking to myself "God Where am I? In An MNC Co". (Details in Next Blog)

But As i always wanted i had joined an Big Company and was settling in.

I was just releaved from my old company which was a "RAT HOLE" where all the employees were just "Frogs in a Well" (Details in Next Blog)

And i was too frusterated couple of days as i had no access to web in my new office i felt i was cut off from the rest of the world. But Now i have plans and measures to over come these frustrations.

As i am writing this blog in an Cyber Cafe i am not able to provide you all the details of this current blog. I promise you i will provide you all the details of the Job and update you as soon as possible.

First Special Thanks To Shrinidhi Hande For The Pictures.

All the Bangalorians know how hectic it is to travel in their personal vehicles every day to work places managing in Traffic, Heat, pollution one will be happy if he reaches his office on time, evading from the bosses angry eyes.

What if there were strategic plans that can help us manage time, which will help us manage fuel, and save all these by just providing us with better transportation options.

Well to mark a beginning the BMTC has laid the first building stones for this kind of plans.

Yesterday (4th Feb) the BMTC introduced a new plan where it has made some new arrangements for the people, who go to their work place every day and who travel from their home to office. BMTC had made arrangement for these people to travel in buses from their home to office without any trouble of driving there own vehicles.

So BMTC had asked the public to travel in buses for one day leaving there vehicles in there home. The response for this plan was amazing and about 20% of Cars and 30% of Motorcycles were off the roads, and about 10,000 people utilized the Buses provided by the BMTC. BMTC had provided about 150 extra buses for this special occasion.

To start with BMTC asked all its employees to drop there personal vehicles in home and travel in bus for one day. For the companies astonishment all the employees responded very positively. and about 1000 vehicles of BMTC employees were off the roads. And about 1600 vehicles were totally off the roads.

As an Introductory procedure the BMTC had only introduced this plan on routs of Electronic City, ITPL, Whitefield area as many of the software companies are located in these areas.
BMTC usually runs about 200 trips on this routs every day, but for this special occasion it had about 125 trips extra on this route.

Special Thing was that Mr, Ashok who is Transportation Minister of the Government of Karnataka traveled in the BMTC bus from his residence in Padmanabhanagar to Vidhanasoudha which was very welcoming. And he felt very happy on the success of the plan.

So BMTC has made this plan compulsory as it is conducting Bus Day every 4th day of every month.

As it is a very successful plan, every metropolitan across the country should adopt such plans to help save Fuel, Time, and to provide better transportation solution to the people which is beneficiary for the Transportation Company & for the General Public.
