Case of a CEO - From Execution to Elimination

Try to become not a man of success, but try rather to become a man of value. - Albert Einstein

This is for Ramalinga Raju - Chief Elimination Officer, Satyam.

Many times, such incidents happen. The good thing is capitalism is unaffected unlike a faith shaken or stirred upon due to the irresponsibility of the individual(s) in other spheres (be it religion, political system, Government, society wrong doings, etc - the turmoil is very high and churn it creates is always for bad).

While it looked doom for Satyam employees, my circle tells me that it is not that bad at all. Customers who are happy with the teams want to continue with them and not the company, teams are looking at companies wanting those accounts and are in demand again. Classic supply-demand would determine their future rather than companies taking high moral ground of not recruiting people from that company.

I sincerely wish that the new board hastens to remove "Satyam" the falsified entity and get a fire-birth purified entity in place (cleanse the current top management and all sin-doers at slight suspicion). This is for board members,who are eminent need to ensure their social responsibility - As people still need to know the original dictionary meaning of the word "Satyam" and not the synonym that it stands today (Satyam = Entity that screws up public money for personal greed).

As a tamil saying goes "God closes a door and opens another". It is a new world for Indian IT, employees of erstwhile "Satyam" and Raju - where he still enjoys a cubicle to be free from the hustle-bustle from delivery pressures that all others face.
