Managerial Atheists

Managerial Atheists

It is almost in any organization that the freaking middle management seems to be showcasing a kind of new doctrine called 'Managerial Atheism'. With my recent experiences and my colleague (Selvaraj's experience) besides a clip-review from a Tamil Movie ("Varuvan Manikantan"), I just thought I would compile all these thoughts into a single post as a moral review for other users to assess and understand about such people.

In more cases then one, I have also witnessed that whilst such creatures go way beyond in establishing their doctrine, they only succumb and crashing their goals and thus delaying the legitimate deliverables too. Would they ever care or dare to realise that? It is only time that can reliably answer this query.

  1. In the film "Varuvan Manikantan", there used to be a poor laborer working in the fields and farm house. Though he used to be very loyal to the employer, the rewards he used to gain was just paltry peanuts. Once it so happened that he wanted to take the pilgrimage to Sabarimala on the occasion of Makara Jothi and the dictator-type manager was intending to put a barricade by asking him to complete the farm harvests first before going on with his journey.

    With great distress, when he was sleeping in his hut, the Lord took the form of the same employer and flagged him off the journey to Sabarimala and took his form to work in his farmhouse. When he returned back, things came to everyone's limelight that the Lord Himself had been working in the farmhouse for the sake of devotee which made the adamant and arrogant employer to realise his folly and repent for his bad things.

    There are the following things to learn from the movie:
    1. The greatness of devotion and significantly the greatness of Lord Ayyappa. The background song of the movie remains as "Manikantan mahimai solli maalathu" (We can not tell-complete the entire greatness and valor of Lord Ayyappa)
    2. The greatness of Lord to even correct the atheists.
    3. The need for shedding our atheist doctrines and realise the greatness of Lord.
  2. In my latest trip to Sabarimala, I had mentioned about Selvaraj was not able to cope up with our latest schedules and had to again reschedule. That was again one of the middle management foul play. While the managing director of the organization from whom he had his contract was supporting him, the middle (intermediate) supervisory cadre (manager) was adamantly forcing him to complete the assignment first before taking any or other pilgrimage to Sabarimala giving lame excuses that his organization was running behind schedules in filing tax and other returns to government authorities.
  3. The another set of atheist, I had was from my previous organization. This bugger frequently had trouble with my regular Thursday Triplicane trip but I supported by my the then technical lead (Varadarajan) who himself used to go regularly. And God gave them a resilent reply too. The US headquarters have now decided to close down the shutters of the Chennai organization, with effect from June 2008.
I just thought I would share these few experiences for the following reasons:

Doctrines of atheisms are just not even for reading or thinking pleasure. Going against the supernatural powers of God can be disastrous. There isn't anything under the Sun which can operate without the will and wish of God. Hence let us shed our ego and other stupid things aside and ensure that we are truthful to our own conscience and to God. The New Year 2009 is around the corner. Let us take up a new year resolution to keep off such bad practices and keep off from such atheists and be truthful to our own self and to God, serving Him and to get His blessings for success in every quarter/every step of our life. Happy New Year 2009 to everyone!!

You sound like a sadist :( You find happiness in others sadness!

@Anonymous,

If you call me a sadist, I would show to you as a sadist only. I am just a reflection of you. When you show a 'saatwik' attitude, I am good to you too.

I can't stop laughing after reading the farmer's story. While the god is in his farm, he went to Shabarimala to visit the god!!! Fool fool...

I have nothing to comment other than to sympathise on your ignorance. This is how, in the story of Hiranyakashipu, the demon king was boasting and grunting unnecessarily and eventually he was torn to pieces by the Lord for his unwarranted demonstration of ego and tormenting of others.

Check out the story of Hiranyakashipu over here.

A continued use of such expletives against God and righteousness is only a surestop guarantee to invite trouble for yourself from Him.

"விநாச காலே விபரீத புத்தி" என்ற கூற்றிற்கிணங்க ஒரு அநாமதாயே தறுதலை ஒன்று இங்கு பிதற்றிக்கொண்டுள்ளது.

தீபக் அவர்களே: ஒரு அருவறுக்கத் தக்க தறுதலையின் பிதற்றலுக்கும் நாசூக்காக பதில் கூறி அதிலும் ஒரு புராண கதையையும் புகுத்தி, அசத்தி விட்டீர்கள்! நன்றி.

Thank you, Ramakrishnan for your visits and encouraging words besides your endeavor in trying to control the expletives unleashed by the 'Anonymous'.

Even whilst trying to discourage others, the 'Anonymous Crank' seems to have left a good channel to share a moral story of Hiranyakashipu.

I am Mishra from Ahmedabad working in a pharmacy group. I would like to share my personal experience the manager had a 'jalra' group to always run behind and lick his arse. Me and my friends had a tirupathi trip one day evening and I had applied permissions which the manager accepted. but suddenly, the fine day evening, he was shouting angrily "Let us think it is going today, man". Time replied him very well. The deal that he was pressing never got through till now. It is now totally dropped.
@Mishra,

Thanks for sharing out your views. Today/Yesterday/Tomorrow are all parts of time. Time controls the world and no mundane creature like 'manager' can intervene with Time.

Sharing my opinion on my manager sadism on me.

He is driving me nuts by not approving the health card approval for the past fifteen days. Already taken loan from bank and if this reimbursement is there, I can go for fast repayments without hindering my savings. The reasons given him are really really crazy.

He was checking out my daily attendance for the past six months, appraisals got, how much value addition I am doing to the project.

He is doing this but as one anonmous pointed out his pet is enjoying the complete life.

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
