Ayodhya verdict makes IT cos to close, work half day
Banaglore: Ahead of the Allahabad High Court verdict on Ayodhya issue, some IT companies have decided to remain closed or work half day. During 9/11 people in California remained in the office and worked hard. Today, the empty offices in India have open up a hot topic for discussion. Did we forget the fact that 'man is not only the maker of destiny but also the destroyer of destiny'?

"The huge amount of money that is being lost today should be a learning for all Indians. The verdict will come only after 4 o'clock and the organizations that remained close today should be criticized strongly for their over precautions. Issues will happen but running away from them is not a solution," said Poornima B.S. a Homemaker.

Infosys has already decided to remain closed today. Wipro said that "We will be working half day today." Symphony Services has made some change working hours for today like starting early and closing early. Majority of the U.S. based IT firms has already announced off or work from home option to their employees. Whereas some of the Indian companies like Mindtree and Cognizant said that all their centres would be open and working as usual.

Some of the worried employees compared there organizations with the others and criticized firms for not paying heed to their security. "I have a family, when my wife and kids remain at home how they expect me to work here peacefully. I had enough experience during the time of Rajkumar's death and don't want the same again," opined an employee on demand of anonymity.
