Rant about Kejriwal’s Odd Even Success

17 Jan

Delhi CM Kejriwal has imposed the odd even scheme on Delhi and has declared it as a success.  Does not matter that the said objective of reducing pollution is not conclusive.  Also, the premise of the scheme being the wrong medicine based on an IIT study is ignored.  The side effects of reduced traffic congestion is being applauded.  One of the major reasons for chest thumping is the “at-least doing something” argument.  So, every day in winter I propose to boil a small bowl of water.  This is small contribution to reducing pollution.  Remember increasing overall temperature would be a way to reduce pollution as per science.  So now, can you vote me as the next CM please for “at-least doing something please”.  I could definitely use the 400% hike in salary.

One thought that an IIT alumni would have a scientific temper – but then politics has this effect of leveling everybody to the lowest common denominator.

Kejriwal is the proof of “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Unfair interviews

1 Jan

Sometime ago I interviewed for a big and well known MNC … I thought that the discussions went pretty well but after a few days got a callback but this time for a different group, that is, restart of the process 😦  .  After some days another call and same story.  “The last discussion went pretty well but unfortunately we could not hire you since we got an internal candidate.  It is our company policy to give priority to internal candidates.”

After a few such good interviews but bad experiences I asked the HR representative for a frank opinion about whether I had a fair shot at the job or was I making up for numbers ( do they have a target of ‘n’ interviewees per position) .   The answer was an expected ” we have fair hiring practices ” etc.  But I didn’t get anymore calls.

Why do people do such things?   Why force a candidate to take a day off to interview when you know beforehand that you are fulfilling some shortsighted HR policy.
