Five Days a Week

Starting next week, i.e w.e.f 10.10.05, saturday will be holiday for us. However, our daily office timing will increase by 45 minutes, 15 minutes early in the morning and 30 minutes late in the evening i.e 10:00 a.m to 5:45 p.m (We are expected to reach the office by quarter to ten). This is a good news for us. Though the working hours of saturday are distributed in the remaining five working days, the employees will now have more time to spend with their families or to do their personal work at home. Good news for my car too. Now I will have enough time to fix those irritating sounds on the front left door.

After a month!

I'm back in the office after four days of liasoning for the Saudi Arabia Monetary Authority (SAMA) vice-governor Dr.Muhammad Al-Jasser. He came to Mumbai to speak at the FICCI-IBA Conference. Today was his last day in Mumbai and this morning, I accompanied him to the Airport. He said that the flight journey will be around three and half hours.

Jus for fun I told him what I calculated from there. The time difference between Mumbai and Riyadh is two and half hours. His flight timing is 10:30 AM (IST) and assuming that he adjust his watch 2 1/2 hours early as they reach, he will reach Riyadh at 11:30 AM (Riyadh time). One hour journey after flying for three long hours!!!

From Mumbai it took 2 1/2 hours to reach Kolkata. From Kolkata, it took nearly 1 hour to reach my place, Aizawl. That adds up to around 3 and half hours. That means there is not much difference in the time taken to reach the easternmost corner of India from Mumbai and the time taken to reach Riyadh from mumbai.
