I left Infosys

It is 2.30 am and I am not getting sleep. I have left a nice job at Infosys last month. Usually a vacation doesn't last longer than 10 days. It has been 25 days since I left my job and I am getting a very different feeling. I am missing those moments in office where I solved so many issues with my team. Missing my colleagues and the office environment. Anyway, now that I have left the company, I can't do anything rather than remember the good ol days.


Why did I leave Infosys?

Well, I ain't going to complain about anything here. I left the company because I wanted to study further. After two years in the company, I found out that to achieve my goals, I can no longer stay with the company and leaving it is the only option I have. I would have loved to stay, but I can't.


Why is Infosys so special for me?

Well, the real reason I miss Infosys is because of the friends I made there. It all started from Mysore Training days in 2013 where I learnt what real friendship is. Later when I was allocated a project in Hyderabad, it was a let down since I wanted to work in a development project, but this was a support job. Nevertheless, I learnt deal with and started liking what I did. I innovated, I did what I liked along with support work. Point is, the people around supported what I did.

I found the work culture very good in Infosys. Everybody is helpful and work in a team. Infosys is the first company I worked for, so I don't know how greener the grass is in other companies.

But I can't deny the fact the this company has had an immensely positive effect on me. It has shaped my personality, my skills, and made me a better person overall.

1.2 billion Indians

It was world population day on July 11 and India's population has already crossed 1.27 billion mark. As per government agencies the population growth rate is 1.6%. This means that every year the population grows by 20 million. That is equal to almost the population of Australia.

There are so many people in our country. I just wonder what will happen to India when she gets old? Like the European countries which have less people to work and more old people to take care of. India is doomed if it gets into such situation.

On one hand India is set to become the youngest country by 2020 (report), while it also sits on an elderly population timebomb (report). As per reports, the old population over 60 is expected to be close to 300 million by 2050 and India's current healthcare and social security system is inherently incompetent to address this challenge. Of course India will still be a young nation in 2050, it will still be a challenge to support an increasing old population.

Population is an asset for a country if it is managed properly. The working population should be able to provide sufficient earnings for a country to support its elderly, and other non-working population. India is in its youth right now, which is itself the perfect time to plan for the future.

The current government is on a right path to stabilize the economy by starting campaigns (Make in India, Digital India) to boost employment for the youth. In a layman's terms, India should make lots of money, improve services and infrastructure and SET UP A FOUNDATION for a brighter future.
