[Bermudas mind triangle is the zone in brain when you disappear in rubbish thoughts because of heavy lunch while reading/watching something. Commonly observed before siesta ]
There are many a times when you utter ‘How the f@#k this song has got to do with the story line?’ while watching a tamil movie. Likewise am not sure how i drowned in thoughts about job in a Call centre.
[Don’t close the link already. This post has got nothing to do with call centre ]
Adhunala i was thinking why the job irks that much. Let me get the facts straight: You get a sore throat; you’re not allowed to yawn between the calls; talking to lonely people about their lives and more.
Please don’t kadha-vittufy you’re proficient in English and communication skills, adhunala you’re working at a call centre.
To give a vague relation, the job is worse than ‘entering the bathroom not only to find there is no paste left for brushing, but also the last person who used it didn’t bother to throw it away in trash’ . Adhunala i was wondering if there are jobs worse or equally annoying as it. Not before the question faded partially, i stumbled upon a infamous tamil music channel while watching.
Rekindling the past –
The advent of music channels (MTV, Channel V, ) has not only ushered in a new genre of entertainment, but also created a new breed of stars – video jockeys or VJs as they are popularly called. Mass/visual communication students commonly become VJ’s. Infact there are even colleges which gives training in jockeying only.
[But in an ideal alternative universe i.e in Namma area]
When it comes to Tamil channels, it goes without saying ‘Pepsi Ungal choice’ is nothing but Himalaya saadhanai. It was rumoured people wanted to build temple for forever y00th Uma,but the debate ended in kalavaram since few wanted to build Muslim temples and not the Hindu one. Crazy buggers!
Adhunala what am saying is this VJs possess talent, it is cool profession and all ok sar , but vJs in TN beg to differ.
To quote in Ramana style-Tamizh naatula motham, <Believe me, I tried> , will be tedious.The numbers are mindboggling. The whole thing is such a gamble. I wouldn’t say they are nothing but malapropos. But on the other hand Ad Libbing, Talking, originality is so extraneous to the vJs. Okay,that wasn’t me.
If there was a race for the most fake things, TN VJs won’t just win but also create guiness,limca,pepsi records. Oh btw 2nd will be WWF (I know ! Ugly truth) followed by Gowri Khan’s botox smile.
I thought the questions asked were stupid .But the amazing answers were worse.
Consider the scenario –
You have logged into IRCTC site to book a ticket to a godforsaken place trip (before a month) on a very dry-muhurthamless-vacationless day of the year. Yet to your surprise what you see is < 43 W/L >. Your left part of the brain ceases to smile, while right-side refuses to vent out. You take breath for 3 secs. Then you go FFFUUUUUUUU and oppugn ‘HOWWW‘.
That is the reaction you experience when you listen to the callers. Regular callers. Sigh.
Ganesh (a regular caller) might not know what his father’s designation is, but he never forgets to ask what VJ Shilpa has for breakfast. #Ngothadei
They are so annoying that i wanted to change the whole system by reintroducing the thopplan’s pugar petti . But am nothing but a venna vetti. Adhunala i conceptualized a troll convo between VJs and the nakkal nayagan-kindal king G.Mani disguised in four roles. Maybe this is how one should answer to their blunt-cliched questions
I’d love to translate, but it is best read in Tamil. Sorry folks
