Worker's Compensation !!!

I am sure title of the post wont make any sense till now, coz it is not making any sense to me while I am writing this post. I am currently in my office, got two free hours after 2-3 weeks of hectic work and thats the reason I didn't write any post, though as always I felt like writing so many things but blogging never became first priority in these two weeks.

I haven't mentioned it anywhere on this blog but i'm currently working as a Catastrophic Risk Modeling Analyst in one of the many reinsurance companies around the world, I wont go into detail of my work profile or something but while I was working on my Cedants from last two weeks, one of my colleagues was working on some other which was "Abbreviated" as Worker's Compensation"... what it means is we make a valuation of human life. Sounds disgusting but thats the way it goes, we have always been taught that Human life is precious and there is no monetary value for; it but in this era of globalization even human life is meant for business. Softwares are there which calculate the losses that would occur in terms of human lives which are then multiplied by the value of each human life and the resulting number is meant for business.

I felt bad/awakward/weird knowing how can the valuation of life be made so simple, in just 1000's of dollars. Won't it be a better idea to spend 1000's of dollars in ensuring safety rather then making sure that a person gets a "compensation" after he/she is no more existing in the real world.

P.S : kindly have some patience,my blog would have more frequent posts in a couple of days from now !!

Updates !!!

Hey folks,

I am back from my 9 days of holidays and it doesn't feel nice to back coz i would have to wake up on time n go to office and work hard there like i am doing now :P

Anyways this is what happening in last 10 days :-

1) A tiring journey along with an excitement to be home, ate and slept a lot but it hardly made any difference to my health. Had a relaxing week after quite a bit of time.

2) Feels nice that I am earning, feels much better when others say it :D and feels best that I can buy things for my parents and cousins and don't need to give a second thought about it :)

3) Missed blogging, specially my habit of reading blogs whenever i used to get time. One good news was that my black berry services were working on roaming, so i could chat and do some surfing if I am getting bored.

4) Made friendship with one of the cutest girl i ever saw, would upload her pic very soon ;) she was indeed cute, just like me :D

5) Used to check out my blog once in a day to find out if any one has dropped any comment wishing to be a co-author of my other blog.

Things I need to do in next one week :-

1- Meeting two of my school friends over the week end after 2-3 years, so lots of things to talk about then.

2- Some blogs are still pending :( , need to sort out the blog rolled list of my blog , need to improve the back ground and design of both the blogs, at the same time keep posting :D

3- Study as much as I can, coz I need to improve with my time management for CAT-08 and at the same time, need to work harder at office for the renewal season.


Thats all for now, will try to be more frequent from now on !!

Request : Please do check out the other blog and leave your comments, good or bad !!

PS : I recently discovered that I have a habit of leaving exclamation marks at the end of each line !!! :P
