this is just the beginning. he was the new player in this sinking ship. now comes the turn of the veteran players. don't be surprised if you hear some giants of the industry joining this list. the castle has just witnessed its initial cracks and the quake is just around the corner!

can't mrs bhartiya see that the legacy is being lost just because the company isn't ready to pay it's employees their dues? can't she bloody see the appraisals that the company has given this year? who would want to work there especially when some really big assholes (the list is too long) and whores (remember the video leak, id hacking and following fir)are the bosses. trust me it is such a bad working atmosphere inside the office that it won't be a surprise if one fine morning you see a big lock outside ht gate with bhartiya madam sitting inside discussing her precious hotel project. you know when you dream, you can. maybe she has already dreamed this.

The communication from the company says they thank Mr Paul for all the direction and the hard work he did in setting processes. The guy hardly came to work, he was off on medical leave for 4 months to the US. The first two months he spent looking for a house and also getting org charts made. That now leaves 4 months out of the 10 he was with HT, he spent all that time redesigning some page or the other and tracking his greatest passion -- Sports. The guy does not look like a sports fan at all...

He was just a design guy who was, just because he was US-returned, made the editor. His great idea was to stop the morning meetings but mercifully that was not done. His focus was only on sports because of a reason everyone in company was aware of. HT must thank its star he's gone. Now they must hire a good home-bred editor, or the slide will continue.

It is a shame people are maligning Pankaj Paul because he was essentially a very good man. Two, he never made any secret of his special relationship with this sports woman. Everyone has a right to have a relationship with anyone. Have no one heard of offices romances before? So they were in a relationship, big deal! He never tried to hide it, they would go off together after office after spending hours together in office. He was honest about it. If he left, it was only because his health deteriorated suddenly and he was operated a few times. And people can't talk bad about this sports woman because she is a leading cricket writer. Professionally, you can't blame her. Personally too, because you can't stop loving someone.
