Promised Land

Miles to Go!

Miles and miles of road
Have I crossed along for sure
Searching promised Land

Fear is no big deal
If you set your heart to win
Her vertical climb

I Love Paris

Beaux lacs et jolis jardins
La tour eiffel puissante
Paris je vous aime

J'adore écrire en français
Translation ...
nice lakes and pretty gardens
The mighty Eiffel Tower
Paris I love you

I love writing in French!


No one can resist
The charm of Eiffel Tower
Heart throb of Europe


At times she is coy
There is no end to her charms
My little daughter

Causing pains however small

Victim of blatant abuse

Nature's Poetry

   Resplendent Rainbow
Stunning portrait of twilight
          God's Poetry 
      Painting his art work
Watching acts of wanton hate
       Changes scene a Bit
    Rain or shine can be
     Pretty as you desire
    Save forests from fire

    Stuck to me like sin
Insipid looking notebook
   Does all my errands

For One single impression


Lend your hand to help
Unmindful of the returns
Make heart chime with soul

For Haiku-Heights


Belligerent kids get warned
On every wrongful move
Overtly sending the signal
Get your act together
Else face the monster
Your choice to choose
Make up your mind
Always learn to obey
Never see the boogeyman

For Acrostic only


Met strange people
Eager to impress
Longing for fame
Aspiring for stardom
Never reaching there
Crashing down meekly
Haste making waste
Overwhelmed in melancholy
Learn to Excel
Yearning not enough

For Acrostic only

Naughty Poet

I am a poet's dream
No matter you may scream
Pry as you wish
Urge as you fish
The words are out of stream

For Acrostic Only (Poet's Choice)


Carefully done
Organised work
Methodical approach
Erudite skill

Unique effort
Planned well

Triumphs always
Regardless of
Upheavels in
Market place
Peer pressure
Stays conquerred

For Acrostic only


Be always in mind
You may now go far  away
Enshrined in my heart

For Acrostic only

Hurtful acts of violence
Against men or women
Sadly done in haste
Takes in its toll
Estranged kids of families

For Acrostic only


Stock markets are known for their thrills
Trades go on  with a few making kills
Overall it is a pain
Could give a little gain
Knowing to play it with some skills

For Acrostic only

Has been

Had the world
At my doors
Singing my praise

But my pride
Etched in brain
Erased my fame
None to blame
For Acrostic only

In these days of severe competition in every sport it is virtually impossible to predict the outcome of any sport, even by seasoned critics. However the pattern of seedings in US Open Tennis 2011, Top Four, was picture perfect!

Novak Djokovic having a Dream Run!

It is true that every sport, nowadays, is getting very competitive thanks to the advancement in training techniques, sports facilities and the staggering sums of "winnings" on offer for the players. Tennis,especially, is one of the richest sport, perhaps next to soccer or golf. The top 10 players are so talented that there is very little you can choose between any two of them. On a given day anyone of them can win the title. With Players like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Roddick, Djokovic one can never predict how the game would go.
The USTA appears to have fathomed this daunting task of "discerning selection" by ranking these Tennis Legends (Top Four) to such a degree of perfection that it matched the results to a "Tee". Look at the seedings and scores of the Semi-Final and Final and decide for yourself.
And the US Open Champion 2011 is Seed (1) ! You can't ask for more. Well done USTA!

While it is hard to get a proper employment befitting your qualification and experience, it is equally difficult for an employer to retain an existing employee from quitting his job. Proper understanding of the employees' needs and installing adequate systems and procedure for prompt identification and resolution of issues affecting the employee is a must. Here is my take on this matter.

Productive Employee - An Invaluable asset

It is a nightmare for any employer to see his employees leave. The enormous amount of time and effort spent on their recruitment apart, the task of grooming another to succeed is a daunting task. The experience and skill of an employee builds over time and there is no way for a quick fix to this issue. Hence the employers would do well to remember these tips for the retention of their employees:

1. No square pegs in round holes

Make sure they are deployed in areas which are directly relevant to their area of specialisation and they are happy to do their job. An unhappy employee quits at the first opportunity.

2. Provide the necessary aids and tools

It is the duty of the employer to ensure that his employees are provided the necessary equipment / device for the performance of his duties. An ill equipped employee tires quickly and his work flow deteriorates. This also makes him detest his working condition and he begins to plan for shifting.

3. Create room for Incentives & Awards

Any one would like a pat on the back for a good job done over and above his call of duty. An employer should recognise such special contribution made by the employee above his call of duty by either offering a Reward or a share of profits gained out of his contribution.This is the magic wand which makes an employee feel that he is a part of the organisation and a dedicated employee.I once wrote a Haiku about "Appreciation" which stresses this point

A pat on the back
Makes even John a Hercules
Encourage and see

4. Redress Grievances and provide counseling

In any organisation, there are bound to be instances when an employee feels that he is treated unfairly and seeks to redress. Dealing the issue with an iron fist, ignoring his complaints, will totally demoralise him and the organisation will lose his loyalty. There should be well written rules / regulations clearly published for Grievance resolutions and a specific authority should be constituted for dealing with such important issues.

5. Informal meetings with Staff

I have personally used this tool for interacting with my staff and it worked wonders for me. In an organisation there will always be some small mismatch or disconnect in the allocation of functions or the method of handling a service. Informal meetings, say once a month, with the employees will help them to point out such small irritants and pave the way for speedy resolution of problems before they develop into bigger issues later.
Well the list is endless. An employer employee relationship is no different from that of a husband and wife. They both call for a mutual trust and understanding for a long lasting relationship.
