Outsourcing has become the norm of the day! Nowadays not only the companies alone, even house wives, sorry, home makers also has adopted this technic. In the good old days sambar powder, rasam powder, papad, pickles and all kinds of vathals were made at home. But nowadays everything is out sourced including idly, dosa batter and parathas. Cooking only rice at home and outsourcing the side dishes is adopted by even able-bodied as they are addicted to TV serials. During Janmashtami, Diwali, karthikai and other festivals all sweets and savouries were made at home. We used to pound aval at home. Ceremonies (ancestor's thithi) were performed at home. But now they are also outsourced and performed at mutts. Event managers are having a roaring business and they could also outsource everything form A to Z. Perhaps a time may come when babies also will be outsourced through surrogate mothers even when the couple has no fertility problem. Plenty of surrogate mothers will be available for a price. Students have also are not left out in this new norm. Engineering students outsource their project work. Recently we read in the newspaper the Pondy education minister was successful in outsourcing a person to write his 10th exam. Doctors are outsourcing the necessary (sometimes even unnecessary) tests through pathological labs and scan centers. The doctors are getting commission and these labs and centers do good business through them. In the cine field voice dubbing and songs through playback singers are outsourced. Perhaps I might need someone for outsourcing my write up in the near future.:bonk Is there any taker out there? But don’t expect any fees other than compliments from me! :hide: Please take up this write up in a lighter vein! I have posted this with malice to none.
