I heard Mr.Ramalinga Raju( remember him? ex-Chairman of the famed Satyam Computers, inflation king?,Account books cook(er),overstating company assets by $1 billion,kin-pin ...yeah yeah...and more) who also happens to be my ex-ex'ed Chairman has been officially granted the "Pauper" status by the US Investor ligitation.Otherwise known as"in forma pauperis" in Latin.....
It means, he does'nt have to pay the filing fees or any sort of financial obligations and other court costs because of his financial condition. How convenient!!!!!
Anyways, Yesterday was the most awaited day in a long time. Why? Becoause it was salary day.I went without any earning for over 3 months with the company shift fiasco and everything.I've never subjected myself to this kind of torture to jus earn a living for the single person I am.I'm talking about the work i've been doing for the past 1 and half months in my new company. Working late,the 3 hours commute,wakeup even before the dogs on the street,.Things were maniacally going out of control. However the end of month payslip kept me focussed and motivated.
I waited with baited breath for that blessing of a sms that comes announcing the "salary credited" to your account.Also being my first sal and all, I was more than curious to know the on-hand amount. I spent the past couple of weeks caculalting and formulating on how I was gonna spend( ahem....sorry save it).
Come 30th Jan, had a quiet birthday under circumstances. However went on a shopping spree in Puraswalkam and shopped to by heart's content for all my friend's upcoming marraiges. All this lavish shopping was done on my credit card.I kept checking my mobile for that single sms...none watsoever came!
Come 31st Jan,Got my payslip emailed to my official ID this morning. I was releived in a way to see the mail. But no sms came. I checked my account, no transaction was made.On closer look at the payslip, disaster struck. It was not my account details on my salary slip, It was not my bank either. Thank god, the name was mine, but the account number was different.Yes...u guessed it...The amount was creditted to somebody else's account!!! grrrrrrrrrr......Just another day in the life of a god-damned IT professional.
So much for my waiting........I'm officially "in forma pauperis" now.......
PS: There's something unusually similar about the above monkey pic and my DP..no?...I wonder wat is that!
