Another Inconvenient Harthal

So now we have another harthal that will be inflicted on the state. The people of this state have got their priorities so ass backwards. We do not need or want and certainly could avoid more of these kind of strikes and disturbances in the daily life. It’s not certain yet but if what I am hearing is true, then this is going to be a 24 hour harthal.

If it starts at midnight then I will have to leave early from the office as I may not get cabs beyond 11 pm and it will be very difficult for me to get back home. This will also mean that we won’t be able to work on Thursday and will have to compensate for it during the weekend. With Friday being a holiday we will have to work on either Saturday or Sunday. Now, since I have people in the batch that live in towns or cities away from Cochin, it will be best to make them work on Sunday instead of Saturday so that they can get 3 days off continuously.

If I have to make them work on Saturday instead, then they will have 2 days off and then work on Saturday and then take Sunday off. That will be inconvenient but it’s not the end of the world. I guess I will find out later today.
