Boss is Great - True Story

RAMA KRISHNA (Sr.Executive - Accts & Preparing for IPCC)   (670 Points)

23 October 2010  


There were about 70 scientists working on a very hectic project.

All of  them were really frustrated due to the pressure of work and the
demands of their boss but everyone was loyal to him and did not think of quitting
the job.

One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him - Sir, I
have promised  to my children that I will take them to the exhibition going on
in our township. So I want to leave the  office at 5
:30 pm.

His boss replied "OK, You're permitted to leave the office early

The Scientist started working. He continued his work after

As usual he got involved  to such an extent that he looked at his watch
when he felt he was close to  completion.The time was 8.30 PM.  Suddenly he
remembered of the promise he had given to  his children.

He looked for his boss,,He was not there. Having told him in the
morning itself, he closed  everything and left for home.

Deep within himself, he was feeling guilty for having
disappointed his children.

He reached home. Children were not there.His wife alone
was  sitting   in the hall and reading  magazines.

The situation was explosive, any talk would boomerang on him.
His wife asked him  "Would you like to have coffee or shall I straight away
serve dinner if you  are hungry.

The man replied "If you would like to have coffee, i too will
have but what about Children ??"


Wife replied "You don't know ?? Your manager came here at 5.15
PM and has taken the  children to the exhibition "

What had really happened was ... The boss who granted him
permission was observing him working seriously at 5.00 PM. He thought to
himself, this person will not leave the work, but if he has promised his
children  they
should enjoy the visit to exhibition.

So he took the lead in taking  them to exhibition

The boss does not have to do it everytime. But once it is done,
loyalty is established.

That is why all the scientists at Thumba continued to work under
their boss even
though  the stress was tremendous.

By the way , can you guess as to who the boss was..?








He was none other than Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
