I got proof of these yet again because my transfer had its plus points as well as the minuses. On hindsight, I can say with confidence that the pluses far outnumbered the minuses. Yes, the transfer affected my outdoor activities and I had to, ultimately, withdraw from the Naba Nalanda magazine. The patrons and subscribers were disappointed but, I had to choose between my professional and my literary ambitions and the former took precedence.
But, the transfer changed my outlook on life. It gave me new confidence of accepting challenges.
A room was, therefore, assigned to me, along with four employees and a junior grade officer. And, all these individuals had been transferred because their bosses felt that they would be better off elsewhere – just like me. The task assigned to me was to organize the inventory of material received from Russia against a new project against different contracts. These items would be required at a later date in the factory but, some of the material had already arrived and others were on their way. I had to develop a system to keep tab of physical receipts and subsequent issues.
The best part was that till my transfer, all these activities used to be handled by a Project group but, immediately I was transferred, the officer in-charge of the Project came to meet me. He was all smiles. He shook my hands, congratulated me on my new assignment and said that he would send over whatever documents he held.
Within the hour, a four wheeler arrived and offloaded four steel almirahs full of documents pertaining to various Russian contracts. Also, all packing lists of items received from Russia.
My task was to set up a system to monitor the complete tasks. (to be continued…)
