One of the major changes in Bangladesh in last 10 years, is certainly that , some telecom companies and MNCs started to pay higher salaries. When I admitted in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) in BUET , I saw that everyone is excited about the subject because of its huge job market. So , somehow its assumed that , a EEE graduate from BUET is obvious to join a telecom company.
Well , I can still remember what Physics says. Physics has some popular laws of Conservation ( like Conservation of mass , conservation of energy etc), which actually states that you can’t achieve anything from nothing. You need to put some hight input to get a satisfactory output. So , does we violate the laws here ? I mean we can get the big money . What’s the input here ?
The input is your life.
I can assure you that , you won’t have a life when you get a high paid job from this companies. I have seen a lot of examples in my life. First of all , I should talk about my cousin Pranad da , who is right now working in BRAC Bank IT sector , after working in many reputed organizations ( he’s quite famous for leaving his job and getting a better one). Pranab da is in service for many years ( like 7-8 years ) . I have always seen him tired , exhausted due to office loads. I have seen him to stay many nights in office to configure server/router/network or to repair it. Well like him, is my sister. Shes working for Warid Telecom Bangladesh. I can see under what pressure , stress and load she lives ! Every night I see her coming from office near 8-9 PM , taking her meal and go to bed, because she needs to attend office next morning at 9 AM.
There are another aspects that astonish me. I know Sumit Vai for many days. He’s my cousins friend , one of the founders of Golpo.Net. Sumit vai was a net freak , like hell. Well , Sumit vai entered in a job , and what can I say ! I have seen tonight in MSN Messenger, after many days. Is it sumit vai , who’s almost obsolete from internet ? After having a little chat , he said , “I gotta go because I have office tomorrow” . ewwwwwww man!
This night also I have a little chat with Farabi vai , one of the greatest seniors brothers of my life time , passed from my department. Farabi vai works for Banglalink. Well , I just sought an idea from him about a matter , and he repiled “Don’t ask me. I have forgot everything because of my job. Its killing me. I have just come from office” Well , I was chatting at something like 12:30 AM.
I am really much much scared. I know job means responsibility. They pay me high , so its implied I need to work more.Besides I can’t also expect the same flawless , singing – dancing student life ! It’s job world ! Its hard . But how much hard ? Is it logical to kill our other entities and run after the ambition and goals ?
I feel panic , when I think that I won’t have time to chit-chat with my friends , write some blogs or passing some good times in IRC ( i mean after coming from office , in night). If things are as hard as I see right now , then I think, its my last days in pompeii !!
