Looks cool. Is there any shop in Chennai where I can walk in and buy it?
Or should I call 'em up and ask them to ship it?

Great "guide" Arul!

Take some initiatives, do something good for the project. Automate something that will improve productivity, or implement a process, or do something that will add value to the project, that saves time hence money.
Of late, I did something like that and you know what - I got an (unexpected)award for my work, and it reflected in my performance review as well.

Cheers!

I'm posting this just for those curious guys that wanted to see the OP. No offenses meant for the Original Poster since he wanted to remove this information.

And how do I insert an image into the post??

How do I overcome fear with positive thoughts? Of late, one of my loved ones have fallen in an illness and have just started fighting against it.

I somewhere read that positive thoughts will make one win in situations, and rather it is the one that make some people luckier than others.

Any thoughts ranchers? How do I overcome my depressed mood, become cheerful and win through tough situations?

The planning had a fixed date, some extra technical complication comes up, but the deadline still must be filled. And then you work for free, since it's your project. Is that your opinion too?



May be yeah, being a permanent employee. Contractors who do the same job as me in my project get paid for the long extra hours, whereas I don't.
Only thing I can convince myself about this is job security, which I think it don't exist anymore.


Do we work harder and get less paid then say somebody in administation or sales who works at the same level? Besides that I would like to know if the job stress level in Europe, is equally high then the job stress in for example India or the US. Any experiences?



I think that the proportion of number of jobs in each sector matters too.
Usually, in India, the number of software jobs that pay 'X' is far more than the number of administration jobs that pay 'X'. Not sure of Europe or US.
From my personal experience, I would say the job stress level in Europe is lesser than that in India. I don't have any quantitative proof though.

A small correction:
It is Graduate Record Examination and not Graduate Regents Examination.

I GUESS there wouldn't be any problem, but still I think you can get some clear advice in US visa related forums like murthy.

The question is about "How to organize" and not merely "How to".

My answer would be - One at a time, slowly but steadily.

So what the biker dress code in your part of the world? If inadequate gear is the norm - Why? Do people not realise the likelyhood of injury? Do they believe themselves to be untouchable with a 'wont happen to me' attitude? Is it a cost thing? (Good gear can be expensive) - or is there something I'm missing?



A very common scene from "my part of world" hehe, in India.



This is why the TATA group has come up with the 2500 USD car - the people's car.
Biker dress code - No gears, Some cities are making people to wear Helmet compulsorily.

Truly a thought provoking question. Even after falling down with minor bruises couple of times, I don't use any gears and off late, I am using helmet because of the law. I don't know this is because of my 'Won't happen to me' or 'My driving is good' attitude or carelessness. Good gears are expensive but affordable when compared to the losses if met with an accident. One reason could be the weather. Can't even imagine about wearing heavy leather jackets, corduroy denim and heavy boots on a hot day while driving in Chennai (the place where I dwell). Lol.

Switzerland OR Singapore?

Q. 1 If I have to choose between following 2 options, what would be recommended?

Option 1) Working in Switzerland for a Financial IT Products vendor
(through an Indian IT services firm) for 90-100 K Swiss Francs.

Option 2) Working in Singapore for a European bank directly for 120 K SGD.

(Assuming both options involve development work)

Q. 2 Is it feasible to switch jobs in Switzerland (Or other countries in Europe) while being in Switzerland?



Recommendations doesn't work good sometimes
Anyways I would recommend you to listen all the sayings here and decide upon yourself.

If I am you,
1. I would opt the Swiss opportunity. I personally feel that the quality of life in Switzerland is far better than the Singapore.
2. I think it is possible, have heard of stories, but not sure. Google for Swiss expatriates site and you'll find more info.

Cheers and Good luck!
