"Everything is fair in war and love" they say. War and love could be replaced with anything as you want depending upon the situation. Some say "everything is fair in war and business", some say "in war and dreams", some say "dreams and games" and a few say "fun and love". What is that we as ex BCians say? We say... "Everything is fair in ex BCians' debates and in the bugs-filled code we deliver".
But there is one guy who said "Not everything is fair everywhere. There is something called 'fair practices' according to the principles we follow and everything else is unfair".
"If the principles he follows are accounting principles, can he be called a principled man?" - This is the debate point for the week. Irrespective of the outcome of the debate, we decide to crown our most eligible accounts man Satyu as the SHoW (Super Hero of the Week).
Satyu joined BC through his friend Gopal with rich (financial) accounting background as a pre-sales functional consultant and worked closely with the marketing team for a very short time there. But in that short while itself, he became widely known to all of us through his accounting classes. That's when we came to know that he could be a very good teacher also, apart from being an expert in accounts.
A couple of months back, when we had the ex BCians meet in Gopal's house, he was busy in constructing his new house. I was planning to make him the SHoW when he invites us all for the house warming. But last time when I met him, he said that it was a very simple ceremony with very few close relatives around and he didn't want to trouble all of us for such a small event. That's when I decided he has to be crowned for his simplicity. After all, we need a reason to honor someone (like drinking - if you are very upset there should be a bottle to console and if you are very happy also there should be one to celebrate!). We Indians are used to the culture of appreciating great people with simplicity and mediocre people who show off. If Abdul Kalam is simple, we adore him. But if a next door uncle is simple... gone case! He will remain simple in all respects through out his life. Full Stop!
As he is crowned for his simplicity, his SHoW name would be Mr. Simple.
We congratulate and wish Mr. Simple a very happy living in the new house on behalf of the group. Good SHoW, Mr. Simple!
Last week - noble... this week - simple...
