Its Wednesday- that middle day of the week where i stand and count to myself 2 more days to go for the weekend, when my inner voice "manasakshi" says only 2 days of the week are over.
I seem to wear my thinking hat on Wednesdays, and am going to blog my first thoughts of the morning- Efficiency.
What is Efficiency?
Webster meaning: The quality or property of being efficient.- ie the power or capacity to produce a desired result.
Mechanical Engineering:Ratio of the effective or useful output to the total input in any system.
Electronics: The amount of power delivered to the load of an amplifier as a percentage of the power required from the power supply.
Medical:The production of the desired effects or results with minimum waste of time, effort or skill.
Mitr's definition: To me efficiency is when a playful girl of 23-24 gets married, grows to become responsible as a woman by getting a job here in the US that matches her academic qualifications and cooks, maintains the household, while being competant in her career, stays in a relationship with a husband, and handles all the other daily hassles that come up both at work and home. It also means that the girl-turned-woman not only gets into the cycle of working + domestic duties, but also finds the time to pursue hobbies, take classes/courses, goes to the gym to workout and also find time to do something for the community around her.
I feel proud of all those Desi women who have come to this country, put themselves through graduate school, found a job, got married and still continued to work, raise good kids and maintain the family.
Reminds me of a few lines off the title song from the tamil film "Manathil Uruthi Vendum"......
"Samaikinra Karangalum Sarithiram Padaithida Bhoomi Parka Vendum.."
"Thoorathu Desathil Bharatha Penmaiyin Paadal Ketkavendum....."
