Main GLT no 711..
Cubicle ke dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon..
apni hi tarah
khaali baithe ek colleague ko dekhta hoon
kabhi mail karta
kabhi coffee peeta
kabhi Extn pe baat karta
Messenger pe chat karta rehta..

woh kehte hain woh TL hai
woh kehte hain woh senior hai
fir kyon mere jaisa lagta hai
kyon din bhar FORWARDS padhta hai
cubicle ki dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon
cabin me baithe apne PM ko dekhta hoon
Main GLT no 711..

kabhi phone pe
kabhi conference-call pe
gussa utarta jaane kis pe
who kehte hain project aane wala hai
training complete karo , kaam aane wala hai
fir kyon mujhe yeh jhootha sa lagta hai
fir kyon yeh sapna sa lagta hai
Main GLT no 711..
cubicle ke dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon

Doosri companiyon ko join kar chuke
purane doston ko dekhta hoon
woh kehte hain bond ka kya hai, chale jao
woh kehte hain kahin aur kismat aazmao
fir kyon bond todne se dil darta hai
abhi ek saal aur intezaar
karne ko jee karta hai

Main GLT no 711..
cubicle ki dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon …

21st century Deewar

Leave a comment

This is 21st century Deewar with two brothers Ravi (Shashi Kapoor) and
Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) who are programmers. They are clashing because
Vijay is into using computer resources for downloading illegal software and
software piracy, and Ravi has been assigned task by system administration,
of clearing system of such evils.
He is writing a program to identify and weed out such net-hackers. So this is the fight between Ravi’s ethics and Vijay’s philosophy. Vijay logs in and starts chatting with Ravi who is already logged in.

Amitabh – Shukar hai aaj tum bug fix nahi kar rahe ho. Muze login karane
mein der to nahi hui.

Shashi- Koi bat nahi, netscape chalanewale hamesha slow hi kam karate

Amitabh – Mai jo kuch kahana chahata hun usake pahale puch lun, ki muze
sunanewala kaun hai ek bhai, ya system administrator.

Shashi- Jabtak ek bhai programming kar raha hai, ek bhai sun raha hai.
Jab mpegs play karega, ek system administrator sunega.

Amitabh- Ravi tumhe malum nahi, ki programmers ko tumne apna dushman
bana liya hai. Aaj to maine unko virus spread karanese rok liya, par shayad
kal na rok saku. Tum documentation mein transfer lelo Ravi.

Shashi- Nethacker bhai ka login karke bol raha hai.

Amitabh- Lagata hai wo jo partition hum dono ke disk mein hai, wo is pc ke
hard disk se bahot bada hai. Ravi tumhe malum nahi jo program tum likh
rahe ho, uska unjaam kya ho sakata hai.

Shashi- Jo program mein likh raha hun, wo hang bhi ho sakata hai par jo
program tum chala rahe ho uska unjaam sirf core dump hi hai mere bhai.

Amitabh- Main to mera code run kar chuka hun, par tumhare paas to abhi
bahot memory hai. Yahan aur bhi companies hai, tum udhar kyoun nahi chale

Shashi- Nahi, mere usool, mere adarsh muze iski ijazat nahi de sakate.

Amitabh- Oof!!!! tumhare usool, tumhare adarsh.!!!! ! kis kam ke hai
tumhare usool. Tumhare tamam usulon ko computer mein dalkar do line ka code
nahi likha ja sakata ravi.
Jin adarshon pe chalkar tum apne programs likh rahe ho kya diya hai tumko un adarsho ne. Ek do KB ka ram, 1MB ka 286 PC, ek do kaudi ka pager. Hum dono ne is pc se programming chalu ki aur tum kaha rah gaye, aur main kahan aaa gaya. Aaj mere paas mpegs hai, Avi hai, jpegs hai, aur to aur Apple IMAC hai….. tumhare paas kya hai .

Shashi- Mere paas Root Password hai, bhaaaaaai ….
