Yes certainly they should have, as infy is a global company!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps after tasing the coffee and tea here the client might want to outsource their coffee and tea facility to Infy

Ba-Ba Moo-Moo – ROTFL

What will the grazing grounds signboards say in that case? “Milking in progress, No mooing please?”
And will the cattle stock be taught to read these K

Thanks and Regards,

Yes we need to have very strict selection criteria so that only quality cows/buffaloes/camels/goats/sheep/llama/elk/elephants etc. are recruited for milking.

1) Should have consistently high ‘milkademic’ performance. Should have given more than or equal to 10 litres/day in the past.
2) Should have high ‘dungamatic’ quotient. Should not have passed dung on the premises more than 3.4 times per 1000 days.
3) Should be good team players and not kick the milkman while milking.
4) Should meet deadlines and allow milking at late-hours and night-shifts too for the foreign clients.
5) Should have no communication skills else can disturb the employees by ba-ba/moo-moo etc.

Can the milking of the cows, buffaloes and goats be outsourced since it’s not a core competency that Infy enjoys ?

Yes thats true.

As cars or two wheelers are no more allowed inside the campus and the golf carts are only for the clients the ones who do not know cycling can use kangaroos for quick transportations from one place to another withing the campus.

Yes, ‘Photo ID Card’ is necessary!
Or we would need dogs if the animals look too similar for security guys to identify.
Baggage check is not in question right now, but may be some day, if we have plans to allow Kangaroos for some reason. J

Will the goats, buffaloes, cows and other animals have to follow the dress code????????? And will they have permanent ID card???????/ After all security was questioned by one of us!

I think having ID cards will help ensure better security. + the dress code will make them look more professional

Guys …………. It was started with cow. Then people added buffalos and goats to the list. Check if anything else is missed out ( if its milk is useful or it is useful in someother way) before sending the suggestion to the concerned dept / authority.

No need to buy the vending macines as CCD will provide them on loan I guess. Now coming to the goats/cows/buffaloes we have to purchase them, now the question is how many???? Should all building have one of each or should one building have only one animal?/? That is the point we have to decide on.

As far as the plantation goes I think the golf course is used no more, so we can have a tea and coffee plantation over there. After all its about tea or coffee so we need the main ingredient fresh!!!!! isnt it????????

I agree with you that milk powder is no substitute for actual milk. Similarly old milk is no substitute for fresh milk.

So how about having a cow and a decoction maker in each building, so that we can get a nice flavoured coffee.

Hi,

Can we have better coffee vending machines in BglrDClike other DC’s? I remember we had got this Horlicks/Bornvita Vending machines in Hyd-DC (one per building) which lot of people out there has appreciated. Can we hope of getting similar ones in BglrDC.

guru

Guru, another movie my mani ratnam. Saw it just today. A nice movie. Good direction, good action and a good story.

It is about abhishek – guru, who has dreams to become rich. To become famous, to make something out of his life. And how he does it. All the difficulties he faces. And finally how he builds up his business.

He marries aish just for the sake of money, but later falls in love with her. How he fights the government and still wins the fight.

The movie motivates you, makes you feel that you should also do something with your life.

In terms of acting, abhishek shines. The performance he has given – the power, the personality he has shown makes him glow throughout the moive. Mithunda has played a very descent role.

The movie is worth at least a watch.

Rating: 4/5

good morning

So how do you start your day… with a strong coffee…
How do you greet people “Gud morning…” or “Kya haal hai” or “How are you??…”

And what reply do you get? Well, a descent good morning in return or “Bus badhia” or “I m fine”.

And that ends the morning conversation.

What about other conversations? How do they generally go? Well take a situation… Two friends F1 & F2 who have met after a long time… How would the conversation go??

F1: Hey F2, long time buddy? How have you been?
F2: Hey, I am fine yaar? U tell where have you been?
F1: Well here and there doing this and that. What about you?
F2: Well, I have also been a bit of there and a bit of there and done somewhat of this and somewhat of that.
F1: So how is family?
F2: Fine, everybody is going great? And how are uncle and aunty?
F1: Well, they are great. They remember you some times?

Sorry to interrupt here, but this is where the conversation ends. And now both of them have nothing to talk about. Still they would keep pinging each other

F2: Aur what else?
F1: Bus yaar chal raha hai? Tu bata…
F2: Bus yaar kat rahi hai…

Here, there would be a bit of bitching about their lifes and their relations. And about their jobs and their companies. And then they would go on “Blah blah…”

F1: Aur bata
F2: Bus yaar
F1: Aur tu bata
F2: Bus yaar…

This goes on and on… till the two friends part…

So, here you see how the conversation goes on between two friends. And you can feel the lack of topics to discuss. This is because of the mundane life we have been living. Going to work every morning and coming from work every night tired and then sleeping. And on weekends just relaxing and sleeping or watching a movie in some mall. Thats our everyday life. We need to change it. We need something different to do, something regarding which we can talk about…
