I read somewhere that the salary of a batch passing out is a function of their starting salary. If the starting salary is low, it almost always stays so for the rest of their lives. The situation is worsened by the fact that its boom time and more than anything else what matters is “to be at the right place at the right time”. Those who missed the booming jobs, no matter how talented they were they just missed the bus. Now that is the missing part of it, the getting part of it is equally ugly. Every tom, dick and harry is getting cool deals all around. You can hardly differentiate between the good ones and not so good ones. You just don’t know the difference, the sad part is even they don’t. Those who get it assume they deserve it. The boom has changed everything for Indian youth. The amount of success everyone is seeing around is way beyond I could imagine 5 years back. I don’t know if it is good or bad but I do feel bad when a jerk gets something that he doesn’t deserve and is keen on flaunting it.

With so much volatility all around, not sure where this is all going. So many people are predicting an end to all this and I am dreading the day when this happens because that will bring volatility once again equally for everyone good or bad. Well, let’s see how it all unfolds in next couple of years. Till then, keep basking!
