Regionalism Plagues at work

Monday, April 10, 2006

Having worked in 2 of the hot IT destinations in India - Bangalore and Pune, I have to admit that workplaces in Pune lack PROFESSIONALISM. People at work start ranting off in Marathi in official meetings with absolutely no tolerance or acknowledgement of other colleagues who maynot understand the regional language. Today, at a meeting, 3 coworkers went yap-yap-yap for over 10 mins when I lost my head and said, it would be good if they spoke in English. 5 mins was all it took to get back to Marathi. Don't they teach public manners or English around here in schools?
