A Real Incident From APJ Abdul Kalam's Life

Posted by Amit Mohan Sharma on February 10, 2010 at 3:24 PM

The real story of a Boss.

Scientists at the Rocket launching station in Thumba, INDIA were in the

habit of working for nearly 12 to 18 hours a day. There were about

70 such scientists working on a project. All the scientists were

really frustrated due to the pressure of work and the demands of their

boss but everyone was loyal to him and did not think of quitting the job.

One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him - Sir, I have

promised to my children that I will take them to the exhibition going on

in our township. So I want to leave the office at 5 30 pm.

His boss replied - O K, , You are permitted to leave the office early

today.


The Scientist started working. He continued his work after lunch. As

usual he got involved to such an extent that he looked at his watch when

he felt he was close to completion.The time was 8.30 p.m

Suddenly he remembered of the promise he had given to his children. He

looked for his boss,,He was not there. Having told him in the morning

itself, he closed everything and left for home.

Deep within himself, he was feeling guilty for having disappointed his

children.


He reached home. Children were not there.His wife alone was sitting in

the hall and reading magazines. The situation was explosive, any talk

would boomerang on him.

His wife asked him - Would you like to have coffee or shall I straight

away serve dinner if you are hungry.

The man replied - If you would like to have coffee, i too will have but

what about Children???


Wife replied- You don`t know - Your manager came at 5 15 p.m and has

taken the children to the exhibition.


What had really happened was

The boss who granted him permission was observing him working seriously

at 5.00 p.m. He thought to himself, this person will not leave the work,

but if he has promised his children they should enjoy the visit to

exhibition. So he took the lead in taking them to exhibition

The boss does not have to do it everytime. But once it is done, loyalty

is established.


That is why all the scientists at Thumba continued to work under their

boss eventhough the stress was tremendous.

By the way , can you hazard a guess as to who the boss was????????

 

 

 He was A P J Abdul Kalam!
