Indian Republic Day – Is it really an Holiday for US

If anyone noticed the subject well its “US” not “us” though both according to post comes out to be same. Since 7 AM IST the phone was rining with server maintainance issues from Satyam data center Vashi,New Bombay. As i thought will power through this morning for relaxation in afternoon SUN….Phone calls from US office started comming in…

Client had decided to bring forward dates for an application to give live. So instead of Monday it will be Friday. With development team celebrating their official calendar holiday of the year. It was all left on me to carry forward the wait…so that US team does not have to put up a sorry figure tommorow morning. Out of the 2 problems reported. I got one of them fixed thanks to my off head knowledge of PHP and C++.  Second problem has also been identified but due to complex structure of system it cannot be solved within stipulated time frame. The emergency response team is working on the system to make sure nothing goes wrong. But nothing is sure as our emergency response team specializes in .NET technologies.

reason to share this information is an request to united nations to draw up common list of holidays for through out the world to surely avoid this kind of mishap. Otherwise small startups need to draw futher plan to motivate their employees to come work on 26th Jan instead of 27th Dec Boxing Day. Anyway will get back to work….will post if response team was successful or not.
