VIRTUAL TEAMING -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL

VIRTUAL TEAMING -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL



this 21st century has just begun and lot of companies are boasting of their flat organisational structures (with hierarchy still deeply entrenched!).

in my vision for the next century i see the need for the management structure to be perfect like the nervous system of the human body—

this is the ultimate form of management as the human body is the most complex structure you can ever imagine—what could be more complex that the micro-science of human senses or DNA ?

we now move from flat to unreal structures ( patience ulysses! , i will explain your tool value later ) -- or for the matter virtual teaming.

a virtual team ensures the best minds work on a project from their unique vantage points regardless of where they reside and they are all afforded a level field.

brilliant minds do not care to play on a tilted playing field—whether to their advantage or not. it is realised that sometimes difficult topics are not best addressed face to face as in a office meeting. the member ship of the virtual team is dynamic, it shifts in response to changing project needs as usual in ship management.

before i proceed further let me recapitulate what a ordinary team is—individuals in a team share a common goal ( like a football team ) and depend on one another to achieve that goal. nothing can be achieved individually—no one man show is possible.

in this technologically switched on , modern age , it is impossible to get highly qualified people under one roof especially if they are not financially vulnerable and if they are loathe to sacrifice their personal values and private lives. these people of high autonomy and self direction may be unwilling to uproot and relocate their family . for their priorities might be in their children's education or family happiness . or maybe they do not care for the all too familiar dog eat dog office politics—i will come back to this later as a DC .

this nonsense of location restriction in a high tech age is done away with. virtual teaming affords them the much needed flexibility of balancing their personal and professional lives. any team LOVES to work with people having expertise in their own field. they have the opportunity to leverage others’ expertise in pursuit of team goals and use each other effectively.

modern technology enables the best committed minds to come together where ever roof they reside. teaming opportunity exists under different roofs all working towards a common goal. communication technologies like email , mobile phones are used instead of visual eye contact. when you can have your laptop and mobile hooked on even on an airplane –work goes where the employee goes. what cannot be conveyed by a nokia mobile N95 digital dvd movie sent by attachment on a email. it is now possible for on the spot member to be part of a virtual team. how many masters have a superintendent tell him by telex—you are the man on the spot—yet strangely he was not part of any vital decision making team—the man on the spot was just a feed back machine for a decision maker who was less competent and had NIL experience on that strain.



decentralized decision making enables us to focus jointly on work objectives, mutual problems and to develop innovative and effective solutions . cross organisational teamwork creates enormous savings starting from less central office space`and less travel time and costs.

most of the time the people sitting in the central office space is unaware of the detrimental effects of the things they do or decide on ( to make their own lives simpler ) the others doing the actual job in a far flung place and difficult environment.

we are lucky to be born in this era of change. since the wheel has been invented maximum changes have happened in our lifetime. this change has to be managed, information is the most powerful tool . this is where a catalysing multipoint feedback from a virtual team comes in handy. this “to the point information” is more powerful than all the voluminous and vague information on the internet superhighway (where time management takes a backseat). virtual teaming causing 360 degrees feedback ( aaha a new buzzword eh? ) creates an environment that allows change management to flourish.

when i was on sichem pace it was usual for me to comment /advise or even decide on problems of fairchem colt and north vessels—the idea is to gain quick access to my on the spot experience—the delay of re-inventing the wheel is thus avoided. it was usual for me to help a young master make a maiden entry into the amazon at night or even to comment on a delicate shipboard problems while i was on leave.

accelerated learning and knowledge sharing is the result when you have the maturity to have the team as the unit of performance. i my case i was tightly affiliated with the concerned superintendents—but this is not necessary. sharing databases does not need tight affiliations as long as the prior human trusting and open relation ships have been there. imagine the increased knowledge base when you have instant and ready access to experiences of others –especially in the chemical field.

in my piece on time management i spoke of the need to save time and money by decrease in travel—this is made possible by virtual teaming. communications and feedback are mostly in writing which makes documentation and retrieval easy as long as the email subject header is taken care of. persuasion is through written words than though mannerisms with adequate time for reflection. in a real meeting 80% of what is said is forgotten in 24 hours—things retained in external memory like yesterdays draft or yesterdays forepeak tank sounding.

traditional teams under one rood interact in meetings—unless this meeting is well conducted there are many pitfalls. office politics play a major role. i will be penning a short para on meetings and office politics in this piece.

in virtual teaming trust ,SYNERGY and sense of belonging is essential—the people under different roofs must be able to count on each other to share information quickly and completely. this trust is more important as virtual teaming eliminates tone of voice, eye contact and body language—the trust indicators.

virtual team members are highly interdependent—contrary to what the general feeling may be. yet paradoxically the team is diverse –made of individuals excelling in problem solving and innovation. unity is strength provided all are pulling in the same direction.

the team members must have a commitment never to allow the baby to get burnt. all must appreciate the experience and skills each member can bring to the team. a member is there for what he can contribute ( that leaves out cooks , right? ). members can brainstorm each other with cc and bcc by email to the relevant rest of the team. the copied to members can add to the feedback database. so it goes without saying that the virtual team members must be excellent communicators and must be given the communication mantras.

all the virtual team requires is a good strong respected leader who need not reside necessarily in the central office space . the leader must establish a process for storing and retrieving team members knowledge and work experiences. the leader must be aware of the difference in perspectives and work practises or even styles ( which are confused often with bad intent –remember bad boy vadakayil ?)—

the leader clarifies the role each individual will play in accomplishing virtual team tasks. the eye must be told to see and not to hear—a small definition of accountability. he must demonstrate an awareness of the challenges others face in their work. autonomy to execute work details is desirable. he encourages open discussions with key players before making a significant decision or policy shift. a frank question say “am i missing something you feel is important? “

the leader is a misfit if he has a problem in unlearning outdated ways—remember we are in the era of change management—dog eared ledgers are out—microchips are in. the leader encourages the virtual team to take initiative , be self starters and be future focused. he honestly seeks the input of the virtual team to build strategies and action plans.

the team is no dirty dozen rubbing shoulders with each other. team members must desist from making judgements bases on their own perceptions and history. often the least obvious perspective will bring the most valuable idea or probable solution. so this means each perspective must be encouraged.

so let us imagine the perspectives offered by a virtual team consisting of a kiss guy ( keep it short and simple ), philanthropist, a scientist, a risk taker, a strategist, a visionary, our own good old establishment, a fact finder and a random virtual team member.

why were the bridge wing doors shut?

kiss guy—to keep away moisture laden fog from entering the wheelhouse

philanthropist- for the greater good of the bridge team and bridge equipment blah blah

tunnel visioned scientist—the dew point using bridge 2007 xp was measured to be --blah blah

risk taker- a bold decision was made on the basis of—blah blah

strategist—the fact that the doors were open were threatening the sanctity of the wheelhouse, the open door was challenging the security and the well being of the equipment and the denizens. using the latest integration checklist it was determined that if humidity increases to blah blah

visionary—in mE vision for the next century i see the need for bridge wing doors to the closed using a computer controlled remote mechanism blah blah

our own establishment--- WE saw the need to shutteth the door and WE got it done . WE shall launcheth a full fledged inquiry to find the reason why the door was kept open in the first place

fact finder—i saw the doors being shut with my own eyes –why i don’t know yet

virtual team member on email — open the fog signal receptacle from inside the wheelhouse.

as you can see , the virtual team member has a trigger mindset. he does care for going through the motions like the others and thinks out of the box. one good idea often triggers another. he encourages each person to express positive and negative feelings. the focus is on creativity, innovation , conflict resolution , sharing/ seeking and harvesting information and to fine tune ideas for better decision making. he believes firmly that everybody must be self directed and flexible in order to work creatively together.

the virtual team leader realises that brainstorming is a process which must not have knee jerk reactions.

virtual teaming is not a tennis match where ideas are lobbed to and fro on email between a few dominant personalities sitting in shore office , ill equipped for the task with everybody else looks on helplessly. reflection time soothes the effect of upsetting voice mail or email if on line etiquette is not fully followed . the team leaders task is to release and harness the potential latent in the virtual team. He does not suppress conflict rather he channels it. He must not abdicate or take sides –rather he remains the impartial arbitrator. He has the maturity to invite team members of the relevant expertise to kickstart change—and wont feel threatened .

He wears his authority lightly and he reduces his role to a minimum.
Tao te ching spake 2000 years back—
The best conqueror does not take part in the war
The best employer of men keeps himself below them
This is the called the ability of using men—
--and women

so the culture must be more on listening to each other than advocating vehemently what they believe is right. however leader ship and respect for authority remain in place—the dynamic thing is the freedom in decision making for the team members depending on their own areas of expertise.

so here is an oath for the virtual team:

i recognise that i am in the midst of major change. i am willing to be vulnerable and change personal traits to manage this change. i agree to shift from the role model reinforced rigid mindset to a flexible future focused mindset. i recognise that the rules of the game has changed and that even as a leader of change i am on a learning curve. i commit myself to transparent and clear communications for 360 degrees feedback

some thoughts on pitfalls of real teaming meetings under the single roof


meetings without agenda can be an lame excuse to bring people together to sound them

a group can think only as well as its most proficient member on the topic –the tongue must taste and the ear must hear – not vice versa --right?

when meetings succeed it can be felt and when it fails it can be felt even better

a failed meeting can do a lot of harm

quite often solving a problem just needs the attention of just one single expert rather than the time and wasted energies of a whole onlooking gaping bunch

some team sub managers use a meeting to buffer them from frightening decisions— safety in numbers

meetings can degenerate to a matter of habit which nobody dares to challenge

a dictatorial topgun chair can repress discussion rather than control it

if the chair can hold the interest the comfort of the venue is not important

a meetings success is judged from the actions that it forced


Our much misunderstood ulysses software is basically an open , written and thus permanent ( not a passing fad ) employee suggestion system which cuts across departmental lines and rank levels. it allows “structured upwards and down wards communications” under one roof or different. virtual teaming to grass root levels is possible under the same roof or different roofs using this as one of the tools.

imagine a ulyssess program for upward and down ward communications being filled up by the manchester united soccer team after every match—the idea being to foster openness and transparency among team members ---with sensitivity and caring, of course.

from manager to goalkeeper/ stop looking at the girls and signing autographs when a match is going on.

from captain to center forward/ concentrate on not being offside when the corner kick is taken.

from coach to star striker / to confuse and shake off the guy tagging you cheek by jowl once every 15 minutes interchange positions with the midfielder briefly for 2 minutes.


etc etc

a culture now develops that people can listen to constructive feedback without getting defensive—and the team can watch who is falling into the same hole again and again and letting the whole adventure down. the culture of not retaliating for people telling the truth as they see it from their perspective now develops. people are introduced to the culture that they must be open to perceptions others have on their performance even if they do not agree. and there must be a follow up to those who provide the feedback. maturity lies in not getting defensive and punishing others for being honest with you.


it can be used to relay information or to provide status updates. action items can be clearly stated. the prose must be thoughtful and meaningful as it is permanent. ideas can be channelled to the appropriate expert for evaluation. this results of which can be can be communicated back in a timely manner. this basket software facilitates the team members to utilise their creative and analytical ideas ( and still retain the patent – i will talk of office politics as a DC later ).

ulysses realises that the most successful organisations , especially in the chemical field, are learning machines who keep harvesting ideas. it recognises that every sailor is capable of generating improvement ideas and that a formal system is required to manage ideas. the grassroot level is more familiar with daily problems and inefficiencies / frustrations of their jobs especially when the management is an unseen outdated non english speaking monarch who is only interested in filing dishonest reports not actual facts.

what was good 20 years back may be unacceptable in this modern age. ulysses works on the principle that every thing can be improved. some team members can bring the best practises from previous employers. a rewarding experience with one suggestion can lead to another one for the system will not allow personality problems to affect decisions. ulysses sets rest to fears that ideas may be ignored , ridiculed or stolen or even blocked by opponents. most humans when they hear an idea they know will gain them recognition will pass it off as their own.

ulysses realises that the race for quality has no finish line. it ensures that questions and concerns have to be analysed and responded to within a time frame. for quick response time is the most important element of a successful suggestion programme. when used well to benefit the company and its employees it is a morale booster.

of course this must have an off limits agenda and framework. it cannot be used as a collective bargaining tool ( likewhat happens at TESMA seminars ) or to wrangle more overtime –unless it is solution oriented, has a better / less tiring method , reduces paperwork or challenges old obsolete habits.

the software can be further developed to include a tracking module for date recd, date closed, adopted/ not adopted/ under consideration/ unfeasible due to budget constraints.

once ulysses takes off it will debunk the 80/20 rule—that 80% of the best suggestions come from 20% of the population. all my ex chief officers ajay/ amit/ sanjay/ pankaj/ jain / rahul/ prasad all will vouch that is comes to 90/95 for this—as i hold a oral ulysses exercise on the bridge every month. and remember any thing you do must be measured, lest you lose control.

ulysses can be used to convey critical performance gaps and to suggest the training to fill up the gaps and thus convert the weaker areas into strengths. it can be used to reverse negative trends to develop specific action plans for moulding individual behaviours that can improve team performance. best practises learnt from other companies can be communicated sideways or upwards.

multipoint feedback is an effective and ideal tool into motivating action and personal change.

and the sacred cows—it is time to use ulysses and kick them where it hurts. ---for the uninitiated –sacred cows of every organisation will not be subjected ( or will not submit themselves ) to any suggestion system .


surviving office politics

 brainstorming ideas for virtual team members who must NECESSARILY live under the central single roof at old toh tuck road: ( to be frank , I have seen the least office politics here than in any other company )


knowledge of human nature and even style is the corner stone of political education. recognise tactics used on you.

power does not come with position of authority. sometimes a slave could be more powerful than the great almighty Ceaser . having said that be aware that knowledge is power—be respected and valued at all levels .

be confident. every powerplay attacker enjoys seeing fear in the victim

if you cant change the policy either FO or follow it.

it is a valuable skill to know when to yield

the greatest survival tool is the art of win win negotiation

keep your emotions under a leash even when you are outraged, but don’t allow yourself to be the scapegoat for someone else’s mistakes.

show respect and appreciation to others, but first be honest with yourself

keep away from vicious smear campaigns

do not encourage lying and deception

you will be judged by your communication styles—if you are defensive all the time—you give yourself away.

be aware , stay focused and continue being the team player who will share man of the match awards.

to stay focused you need to know the larger picture. do not use the larger picture as a convenient exit route.

build solid relationships and socialise —even if it means that you have to allow moses on wheels to lead you by your nostrils for lunch. unni-san take note—there is zilch advantage in being a loner

in a shore office ( unlike a ship ) do not tell anyone anything that can be used against you—don’t let go too much even over a saturday night beer session with buddies who may be opportunists —don’t even pass on rumours or share negative career experiences. be a friend on matters that do not involve the office and an employee on issues that involve your career prospects. there is no need to prove your friendship at the expense of compromising your values.

the truth is without engaging in some sort of political activity or tying to develop followers , your career will stagnate. this is why old blunt seadogs who are not limelight oriented are misfits ashore.

do favours and help others out. even asking for help creates bonding ( what a paradox!).

know your power—unleash it only when necessary at the right time.. control impulses and rushes of blood.

gain the trust of those with influence, be genuine here.

there are insecurity driven turds in every office with the “crippler, undermining ,divide and conquer mindset” who enjoy telling you that you are worthless and unloved. it gives them temporary happiness and how. be proactive and not reactive with such miserable souls .

do not allow yourself to be emotionally blackmailed by con artists who misrepresent their authority. use your intelligence and gut feeling here.

when your big boss gives you meaningless jobs , withholds information or makes you travel the whole month --take the hint. recognise and seal your vulnerable areas. he might be reacting so due to outside pressures.

don’t upstage your boss or give him untactful advise in public

don’t hurt working relation ships—you may need to be a hypocrite here. maintain your sense of humour.

when negative politics are used by team members or negative energies are channelised for selfish needs, the resulting conflict can corrode the core of the team. team efforts are swamped by power struggles.

don’t cry wolf every time there is a common place power struggle.

play only by your own rules or the rules of the company. and don’t get too predictable lest you become a easy target ( aaha now every body knows why vadakayil keeps a cat as a pet ) . timing is everything .


and if you are too sensitive and get stressed in office, here is the vadakayil remedy , which hold good till the 3rd world war—based on the principle that HAPPINESS IS THE BEST STRESS BUSTER

be respected by all in office
have a busy schedule and do perfect time management
make sure you want what you get and not vice versa
surround your desk which trivia which makes you feel good—no!, you cant bring your pet along!!

do not expect things beyond your talent
happiness is a victory lap—so solve problems, talk big ( like you know who ), keep the colour in your cheek and the glint in your eye.
be yourself, and have good friends who accept you as you are.

laughing and crying are signs of relief valve lifting on the overstrung—JUST SMILE

and finally some wisdom---

keep your CDC and yourself , marketable and valuable.

champions and heroes who challenge themselves have the knowledge, talent, skill , attitude and determination to easily handle the lifetime ahead of them—it is a piece of cake.

    Respected Captain,

    What is special about Tamil Nadu?

    How come it is able to continuously produce word geniuses like Ramanujam, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, C.V. Raman, A.R. Rahman, Abdul Kalam, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Viswanathan Anand, Illayaraja, etc?

    Even till recently the Chief Justice of India, the Finance Minister, the RBI governor are all Tamils?

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    Regards

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    STOP PRESS:

    I AM WRITING THIS AS I PROMISED ONE OF MY READERS 45 MINUTES AGO-- HE RAN UP TO ME DURING MY MORNING WALK--

    HE WANTED TO KNOW OUT OF MY 300 PLUS SCOOPS IN MY NEARLY 845 ODD POSTS--WHICH IS NO 1 AND WHICH IS NUMBER 300.

    ############

    well let me make it clear , these 300 scoops are CONSTRUCTIVE SCOOPS .

    all these 300 scoops are in the plane of INVENTION and NOT innovation.

    none of these 300 scoops are DESTRUCTIVE -- so my posts proving that edison, newton, darwin, einstein etc are IDIOTS does not find a place in these scoops.

    so waht could be the no 1 scoop?

    it is about providing a HINT on how to make a astronaut hibernate while travelling to mars -to cut down on food and water .

    it is about keeping alive a seriously wounded soldier till he can find proper medical care.

    HIBERNATION WITH HYDROGEN SULPHIDE GAS VADAKAYIL

    and

    FUMAROLES FOR FREE ENERGY AND HYDROGEN SULPHIDE SUICIDES IN JAPAN VADAKAYIL


    one of my russian chief engineers who lived near siberia , a place infested with HUGE bears had once woken up a bear while on hibernation in a cave ( as a child ) and he told be how furious the animal was. Before they go into months of hibernation they would kill a large animal ( bury the dead animal it in the ground ) and would NOT eat it unless it became putrid , reeking of rotten eggs..

    WELL WHAT WOULD BE NO 300 RANK.

    it is about PIN WORMS on as$hole.

    Check out the comment dated 18th Dec 2013 , about surcharging the anus with oxygen 5 times a day to prevent pinworms disrupting your REM sleep. This is a 6000 year old Ayurvedic cure for pinworm which happens when you eat non-veg heavy meats and do NOT wash your as$hole after a crap.

    I have reached a stage where ONLY I can evaluate myself--

    one of my DUTCH bosses tried to patronise me nearly 2 decades ago -- he said he has given me a good confidential service report-

    so i told him something in Hindi -- with its translation.

    VADAKAYIL KHUD QUESTION PAPER SET KARTA HAI !

    VADAKAYIL KUD EXAM LIKTHA HAI !!

    VADAKAYIL KHUD NUMBER DETA HAI !!!

    capt ajit vadakayil sets his own exam question paper, he writes the exam , and then he gives himself the marks .

    THIS IS THE MEANING OF LIBERATION.

    believe me -- that man hugged me ( NO patronising here ) and said -- he expected such an frank retort from me .

    he said- every other captain would have said thank you .

    he was told to enter into this dialogue by the single man owner of that shipping company . this was about my " CUT THE CRAP " EMAILS -- where i would point out that the EMPEROR IS NAKED .

    99% of the people will NOT even understand the wisdom and gravity of the statement above.

    hi l,

    before 7000 BC, the whole world was called bharatvarsha- ruled from India.

    BHARAT ONLY GAVE-- WE NEVER TOOK .

    today we play cricket -- 9.5 countries --between the TAKERS ( thieves ) and the GIVERS ( who got robbed ) .


    ISL will now wean Indians away from cricket-

    we will do well in this game -- as Indian can think better than others.

    TEAM WORK IS LIKE SOCCER DYNAMICS.

    i have always used this principle as leader of a team-- all have to anticipate--

    I WAS THE FIRST TO START "DYNAMIC ROVING SQUAD : --GOING AGAINST THE COMPANY RULES-

    NOBODY DARED TO SACK ME.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/dynamic-risk-assessment-on-chemical.html

    I TORE UP THE "EMERGENCY STATIONS" COMPANY FORMAT STUCK ON THE WALLS --AND USED MY OWN--

    I DARED MY BOSSES--

    SACK ME FOR INCOMPETENCE-- they could NOT.

    I DARED MY BOSSES-- sack me for disobedience

    they could NOT-- as captain is responsible for safety and can OVER RIDE every company procedure when it was warranted.

    I WAS THE ONLY CAPTAIN, WHO USED THE SWORD OF CAPTAIN'S AUTHORITY , BEFORE THE ISM ERA.

    nobody dared to use this sword--a s you stood to get sacked -- or not be recalled for the next contract after your leave is over --

    I HAS TALKED OF BEING LIBERATED -- TWO DAYS AGO.

    i think my next post will be a hollywood movie review on-

  4. THE INDIAN GOVT AND ARMED FORCES MUST DO BRAINSTORMING .

    ATTACK ONLY WEAK POINTS OF PAKISTAN . .

    THIS IS CHANAKYA NEETI . .

    one of the reasons why capt ajit vadakayil is a living legend at sea, is because i offered myself as a SACRIFICIAL GOAT just to get my kicks and play games with my detractors

    i would offer to change cargo grades which had never been tried before at sea.

    for example-- i would offer to change grade from viscous lub oils to potable ethanol or methanol fibre grade in brazil/ argentina and that too without going out to sea for open tankcleaning after unloading luboil .

    yank charteres wanted to send yank , danish and norwegian obeservers ( super cargoes ) and i would say NO PERMISSION --

    TARZAN SWINGS ALONE ON THE VINES -- AND HE WONT ALLOW IDIOTS TO WATCH FROM BELOW AND ABOVE TO MICROMANAGE HIM. .

    i make too many enemies ho are miffed with my cockiness-- if i fail i am disgraced forever and will be sacked. even the company may shut down due to losses . .

    my detractors would wait with bated breath for me to fall PHUTTTTT on mE face.

    but i would always win . .

    THUMB RULE : KNOW THE WEAK POINTS AND STRONG POINTS OF THE PREVIOUS CARGO. ATTACK WEAK POINTS . IT REQUIRED IN DEPT TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE FROM IONS TO ATOMS TO MOLECULES TO BOILING POINTS TO MELTING POINTS TO WHATEVER.

    THERE WAS A CASE --MY LAST VOYAGE BEFORE I RETIRED --MY TANKS ALL FAILED AT OMAN --

    ALL MY DETRACTORS CELEBRATED AND GOT DRUNK

    I CAME OUT THE WINNER AGAIN--SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW ?

    I CHALLENGED THE COMPETENCE OF THE GORA INSPECTION LAB ..

    I DID TESTS ON MY OWN SHIP --IN THE PRESENCE OF LAWYERS FROM LONDON-- HAD THE TESTS VIDEO TAPED .

    THE VERDICT?

    THE SHORE LAB , MUST RETRAIN THEIR TECHNICIANS -- THEIR PROCEDURES WERE NOT SCIENTIFIC -- THE TOP BOSSES GOT SACKED.

    THIS IS THE REAL MEANING OF " GAAND MEIN TATTI " OR BALLS WHICH CLANG AND EMIT SPARKS .

    TODAY EVEN MY DETRACTORS WHO GOT DRUNK-CRY-- THIS WILL NEVER EVER HAPPEN ON THIS PLANET . .

    what is natural confidence ?

    how can a confident person be sure about something ?

    or does a confident person accept that he might err ?

    Please talk about natural confidence you talk about ?

    hi bz,

    when the CRYING BOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR put a defamation case against me--the police ( well wishers really ) asked me--

    " captain, we know you are a desh bhakt and an intellectual --but we dont understand why you sent your eldest son to usa "

    all i replied was " he will come back"

    it was not worth explaining

    WHEN I WAS AT SCHOOL , I USED TO BE MAHAAA IMPRESSED WITH NAMES LIKE JOHN, MARY, DICK AND PRICK .

    I DID MY LKG / UKG / AND FIRST AND THIRD STANDARD WITH ANGLO INDIAN GIRLS .

    i did NOT do second standard as teachers felt, i was too troublesome in class -- coming first rank too

    LATER I STARTED SAILING AND GOT MY EXPERIENCE WITH WHITE SKINNED PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD

    I KNEW WITHIN MYSELF THAT I WAS 100 TIMES SMARTER THAN THESE PEOPLE WHOM I ONCE IDOLIZED ( IN MORAL SCIENCE CATHOLIC CLASSES IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE WHITE MAN SAVING THE DIRTY HEATHEN INDIAN )

    MY JOB MADE ME WALK THE PATH OF EXPERIENCE --

    when my elder on was leaving calicut for cornell , at the airport i told him--

    " FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE WORTH. YOU WILL BE PITTING YOURSELF AGAINST THE BEST BRAINS ON THE PLANET IN YOUR COMPUTER SCIENCE MASTERS CLASS "

    it did NOT take long for him , to realise his own worth

    THINKING IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING ON THE PLANET-- FOR AN AVERAGE INDIAN THINKING IS LIKE BREATHING--SO NATURAL -- SO EASY

    when my son passed out , he applied for a job in the best companies of USA

    the first test is usually CODING ( on line exam ) -- usually runs 3 hours

    all the companies replied within the hour " YOUR CODING ABILITIES ARE OUTSTANDING-- WE SHALL NOW SKIP ALL INTERMEDIATE EXAMS AND GO FOR THE FINAL EXAM"

    thousands of people have taken this coding test -- clarity of thought shines through , when you reduce complex stuff ( honored by time ) into ridiculously simple stuff

    this is when self realisation hits you like an avalanche .

    you have competed in OPEN maidan against the best and you have won. the moment you find yourself on a BAD WICKET you know someone has cheated .

    winning in an OPEN FIELD , this is NOT like a JEW like albert einstein ( clerk in patents office) cheating and getting a nobel prize --

    -or jewess hillary clinton beating trump in the presidential debate ( getting questions/ answers ) before hand.

    did i not predict this, way before wikileaks --just by watching her body language ? it is on record

    EVERY HUMAN MUST WALK ON THE PATH OF SELF DISCOVERY -FOR LIBERATION .

    ONCE YOU START ON THAT UNKNOWN PATH OF THORNS, THERE IS NO TURNING BACK-- THE COSMOS WONT ALLOW YOU.

    FOR THIS IS THE PATH OF HUMAN SPIRIT.

    YOU HAVE DARED TO WALK SO FAR, WITH A FRESH PAIR OF EYES --WHY TURN BACK NOW ?

    ANIMALS IN A ZOO WONT UNDERSTAND THIS

    YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU KNOW . .

    IF YOU DONT DARE TO WALK THIS PATH, YOU DIE IN DUE COURSE OF OLD AGE , WITHOUT MAKING A DENT IN THE UNIVERSE.

    MENTORS CAUSE A MENTEE TO TAKE HIS OWN DECISION AND WALK ON THIS PATH OF SELF DISCOVERY

    IN MY LIFE, I HAVE ALWAYS STRUCK MY OWN PATH AND CARRIED MY OWN TORCH.

    just because my path is different from the beaten track--it does not mean that i am lost.

    LIFE ON EARTH IS A SCHOOL -- YOUR SOUL ALREADY KNOWS

    WITHOUT ADVENTURE , HOW WILL YOU KNOW WHERE YOU BELONG ? HAPPINESS IS A JOURNEY YOU CHOSE , NOT A DESTINATION.

    I AM A LIVING LEGEND AT SEA , BECAUSE MY SHIPS NEVER FAILED AN INSPECTION.

    THIS IS VERY HARD ON CHEMICAL TANKERS WHERE YOU HAVE MORE THAN 30 TANKS AND EVERY TANK GOES THROUGH WALL WASH TESTS.

    WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR MY UNIQUE SUCCESS?

    I HAD THE CAPABILITY TO ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSE.

    MY BRAIN WENT WHERE NO HUMAN BRAIN HAS EVER BEEN BEFORE-- AND MOST OF THE TIME IT WAS NOT EVEN MY FIELD OF EXPERTISE.

    BUT ALL AT SEA AND ASHORE KNEW , CAPTAIN WILL FIND THE ROOT CAUSE-- AND COME WITH 100% SOLUTIONS

    WHEN SHIPS BROKE DOWN AT SEA , AND ENGINES COULD NOT BE RESTARTED --THEM BOSSES ASHORE WOULD SEND A DISTRESS MESSAGE ( OSTENSIBLE ) TO ALL SHIPS IN THE FLEET -- BUT SECRETLY THEY SEND IT ONLY TO MY SHIP. MY FANS ASHORE TOLD ME THIS.

    THEY KNOW MY CHIEF ENGINEER DOES NOT HAVE THE BRAINS TO EVEN DARE TO REPLY ( SHOWS TOTAL LACK OF COMPETENCE ) BUT CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WOULD REPLY, WITHIN 5 MINUTES

    YOU DO NOT BECOME A LIVING LEGEND AT SEA JUST LIKE THAT .

    LIKE AISHWARYA RAI SAID" YOU MUST BE WORTH IT"

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/02/naive-sailor-low-sulphur-fuels-capt.html

    I DARE ANY ENGINEER ON THIS PLANET TO EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT I HAVE SAID IN THE POST ABOVE --ANY FUCKIN' ENGINEER MARINE OR SHORE.

    COME ON, TAKE CAPT VADAKAYIL ON, YOU MOTHER FUCKERS !!

    CAN ANY ENGINE EXPERT ON THIS PLANET IMAGINE IN HIS MANN MANDIR HOW THE PISTON GOES UP AND DOWN ?

  7. WHEN WE TOOK UP RESIDENCE IN MANIPAL -- MY YOUNGER SON WAS THERE FOR THREE YEARS-- ME AND MY WIFE BOUGHT TWO SONY FLAT TVs COSTING A FORTUNE.

    AFTER SIGNING THE CHEQUE I TOLD MY WIFE , I RECKON THAT CHEQUE WILL BOUNCE --HAATH THODA PHISSAL GAYA--

    SIGNATURE CHANGE OVER THE YEARS

    SO TO PREEMPT THIS POTENTIAL CHEQUE BOUNCE , MY WIFE CALLED UP THE BANK MANAGER IN CALICUT AND TOLD HIM TO HONOUR THE CHEQUE OF SO AND SO AMOUNT OF DATE SO AND SO.

    30 YEARS AS SHIP CAPTAIN HAD MADE ME THIS BANKS VALUABLE CUSTOMER.

    BUT HEY --

    THE CHEQUE STILL BOUNCED --AS THE CHEQUE WENT TO SOME BRANCH CHEQUE CLEARING OFFICE -- NOT THE HEAD OFFICE.

    WHEN THE SHOP INFORMED ABOUT THIS BY MOBILE PHONE-- WE QUICKLY DROVE THERE AND MY WIFE SIGNED ANOTHER CHEQUE

    WHY DID MY SIGNATURE CHANGE ?

    AS A CHEMICAL SHIP CAPTAIN I SIGNED ON AN AVERAGE MORE THAN 100 SIGNATURES AFTER LOADING --

    OVER TIME THE BODY CELL INTELLIGENCE TAKES OVER AND THE SIGNATURE IS MADE FASTER --BUT THEN SPEED CORRUPTS THE FINE NUANCES OF QUALITY

    DIGRESSION:--

    my mind goes back to an incident in mumbai

    i started a bank account as a young boy of 17.

    and that account with about a 40 grand was untouched for several years.

    one day i went to move my account.

    i signed on a withdrawal slip -- i knew that my signature wont match so i took my passport along

    the parsi old madame said my signature does not match and she cannot give me money

    so i gave her my passport-- and spAke-- see the picture on the passport and my name

    the baawajee old woman still refused-- she was just being herself- an old cantankerous parsi woman

    so i suggested-- let me put a fresh SPECIMEN SIGNATURE

    she stonewalled that too.

    so i said loudly -- WATCH THIS MADAME --SPRROOINNGGG

    i started removing my shit--with at least 20 people watching

    she demanded--WHY ARE YOU REMOVING YOUR SHIRT

    i said-- NOW IT IS SHIRT-- AFTER THE NEXT STONEWALL IT WILL BE PANTS

    i explained-- WHEN I PUT THAT SPECIMEN SIGNATURE , I HAVE VERY LITTLE HAIR IN MY ARMPIT-- BUT SEE NOW- HAJAAAR HAIR-- -I TUGGED AT MY ARM PIT HAIR-- I HAVE CHANGED

    then i started removing my pants MAYBE YOU WILL WANT TO SEE MY JHAAAAND ( PUBIC HAIR ) TOO --

    all and sundry started laughing --including the guard with the long double barrel gun

    she cried OK BAABA , OK BAAABA - I WILL GIVE YOU THE MONEY

    i got the money-- thanked her and gave her a piece of advise

    i spAke-- YOUR BINDI IS ONE INCH TOO HIGH --LOWER IT

    she obliged instantly -- for she was afraid i may spin a yarn with my asshole next

    TEE HEEEEEEEEEEE

  8. WE HAVE TO CRUSH THE NAXAL THINKERS AND SUPPORTERS --

    EXAMPLE ?

    JNU COMMIE PROFESSORS, COLLEGIUM JUDICIARY IN FOREIGN PAYROLL, NHRC, NCM, NCW, TROJAN HORSE NGOs etc

    BUT MODI DOES NOT HAVE THE BALLS

    HE IS AFRAID OF JEW NOAM CHOMSKY

    ########

    long ago i had an emergency on my SCI ship ( 1983)

    a technical shore boss flew down to be on board-- he was a TOP HONCHO.

    he was my chief engineers batchmate ( both ENGINE ROOM ARTIFICERS or GLORIFIED FITTERS from indian navy -- they have practical knowledge but theory is ZERO )

    to cut a long story short--

    the chief engineer was screening a HIT hindi movie in the officers lounge with his new VCR with the shore boss and half my crew / officers there watching the movie -

    --dereliction of duty in an emergency!

    as soon as i entered the lounge all ran away --leaving behind chief engineer and his batchmate shore boss ( both RUSTIC punjabis with zilch class )

    i asked my chief engineer-- have you completed transferring bunkers the way i told you.

    he said --NOT YET

    i said-- AS LONG AS THE SHIP IS IN THIS PORT, YOUR SHORE LEAVE IS CUT , AS PUNISHMENT

    his batchmate boss comes to his defence-- CAPTAIN , YOU CANNOT CUT CHIEF ENGINEERs SHORE LEAVE ( both were planning to go ashore IKKATTA )

    i replied-- OH YEAH? -- NOW I WANT HIM TO GO ASHORE --I WONT PUNISH HIM -- I WILL PUNISH YOU .

    knowing how hard core i could be -- both slunk away with the VCR like beaten dogs

    THERE ARE TIMES A LEADER MUST SHOW STRENGTH

    MY OFFICERS AND CREW WHO RAN AWAY--WERE ALL LISTENING TO THIS SHOWDOWN FROM OUTSIDE PEEPING EVERY WHICH WAY, EVEN FROM PANTRY PORT

    THEY ALL KNEW WHO IS BOSS ON THE SHIP

    KNOW YOUR POWERS --ALWAYS

    EPILOGUE: LATER I THREW OUT THE SHORE BOSS FROM MY SHIP.. GAVE HIM 60 SECONDS TO LEAVE -- HE RAN FOR HIS LIFE --NO TIME TO COLLECT HIS BELONGINGS --

    i warned --AFTER 60 SECONDS MY CREW WILL CATCH HIM AND THROWN HIM FROM THE MAIN DECK INTO THE BOAT -- A HUGE HEIGHT --HIS BONES WOULD BE BROKEN .

    i had to face a disciplinary enquiry later with SCI -- i came out the winner

    -- reason?

    this shore boss tried to undermine CAPTAINs AUTHORITY ( another incident )

    if you ask people who know me --even my worst detractor-- all will vouch--CAPTAIN WAS KING !

    THIS STORY SPREAD LIKE WILD FIRE -- I BECAME DON CORLEONE ( circumstances early in life )

  10. PATHETIC MORONS LIKE AMARTYA SEN AND MANMOHAN SINGH ARE DECRYING CHANGES OF GOVT STRATEGY DURING 50 DAYS OF DEMONETIZATION

    ONLY A CUNT WILL LOOK AHEAD WHEN THE ENEMY HAS MANEUVERED HIMSELF BEHIND HIM --OR IN HIS BLIND / SHADOW SECTOR

    I WAS THE FIRST ON THE PLANET TO PROPOUND "DYNAMIC" RISK ASSESSMENT AT SEA

    AT SEA, WHEN THERE WAS AN EMERGENCY, CHIEF ENGINEER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE ENGINE ROOM--LIKE A MUSHROOM

    I OBJECTED--

    I SAID-- CHIEF ENGINEER MAY BE THE SENIOR MOST ENGINEER-- BUT HE WILL NOT KNOW THE PIPELINES AND PROCEDURES -- WHICH THE JUNIOR MOST 5TH ENGINEER REGULAR WATCH KEEPER WITH HANDS ON EXPERIENCE WILL KNOW BETTER.

    I INSISTED --

    I WANT CHIEF ENGINEER AS MY ROVING SQUAD. -- TO WATCH FOR COMING SHADOWS -- FOR ME AS CAPTAIN ON THE BRIDGE TO CHANGE HIS STRATEGY

    IT TOOK ME MORE THAN TEN YEARS TO CONVINCE THE MARITIME POWERS.

    AS SOON AS I JOIN A SHIP- I TEAR DOWN COMPANY EMERGENCY STATION POSTERS AND PUT MY OWN THING WITH CHIEF ENGINEER AS ROVING SQUAD--

    HE IS NOW THE EYES AND EARS OF THE CAPTAIN WHO CANT SEE ---THOUGH IN COMMAND .

    COMPANY WILL RAVE AND RANT, QUOTING I AM NOT FOLLOWING THE SOP APPROVED BY ISM CODE/ SMS SYSTEMS -- I TELL THEM FUCK OFF

    THE LEADER OF SQUADS FIGHTING THE FIRE WILL SAY "WE ARE THE BEST"-- APUN AWWAL !

    SOMEONE ELSE HAS TO JUDGE THEM

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/dynamic-risk-assessment-on-chemical.html

    IF I WERE THE PM OF INDIA, I WOULD BE HAVING A HARD COPY ( SIGNED BY CRITICAL MEMBERS ) OF EVERY DAY SINCE DEMONETIZATION STARTED ON 8TH NOV 2016

    THIS MEANS I WOULD HAVE 50 PRINTED AND SIGNED COPIES OF RISK ASSESSMENT

    AS A PM I WOULD KEEP THE "CERTAINTY SWITCH " IN MY POCKET

    I WAS A SUCCESSFUL CAPTAIN AT SEA , BECAUSE MY METHODS WERE 100% FOOL PROOF.

    NOTHING --REPEAT --NOTHING WOULD BE DONE WITHOUT A PROPER RISK ASSESSMENT BEFORE AND A DYNAMIC RA DURING -- AND A FINAL BRAINSTORMING FEEDBACK MEETING

    AND MOST OF THE TIME WHEN IT CAME TO MAJOR CRITICAL THINGS -I DID "BRAIN STORMING " WITH EVERY MEMBER OF THE CREW.

    I GET VALUABLE FEEDBACK

    THEN I HAVE A REM SLEEP SESSION

    ONLY AFTER THAT I TAKE MY DECISION

    THERE WAS A FANTASTIC PROCEDURE ( not requited by the company or IMO ) --AND I AM PROUD OF MYSELF

    WISDOM IS THE FRUIT OF BRAIN STORMING

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/11/blue-ocean-leadership-capt-ajit.html

    THERE WAS A TIME WHEN MY SHIP WOULD HAVE SUNK-- AND ONE JUNIOR MOST ENGINE ROOM CLEANER ( WIPER ) GAVE A SUGGESTION FOR TIGHTENING LASHINGS ( LOG CARRIER ) DURING EMERGENCY BRAINSTORMING WHICH SAVED THE SHIP-

    --OF COURSE I HAD NO TIME FOR REM SLEEP.

    TO BE FRANK INDIA NEEDS TO SACK ALL PROFESSORS OF PREMIUM COLLEGES ( DEADWOOD / SPENT FORCES ) IF INDIA HAS TO BE NO 1 SUPERPOWER ON THE PLANET IN 16 YEARS

    BUT HEY--MODI HAS PUT HIS POODLE CHITPAVAN JAVEDEKAR IN CHARGE

    MODI WANTS EGO MASSAGE !

    HIS PATHETIC TEAM INSTEAD OF DOING THEIR FUCKIN' JOBS , JUST SUCK UP FOR PERSONAL FAAYADA.

    AT SEA I WAS THE ONLY CAPTAIN WHO KICKED MY BOSSES ON THEIR COLLECTIVE BALLS FROM HOUR ONE.

    EVEN MY WORST DETRACTORS WILL AGREE TO THIS..
