It is that part of the year when most of us are on vacation. In the US and Europe, it is time for celebration and meeting relatives/family. We in India with our diversity, we regularly get vacations.

Anyways, this post is more about those who call themselves being on vacation and still hyper-connected on the internet. I don’t understand this. Why do you have to reply to official email or comment on pull requests, you are on vacation. You are supposed to spend time away from the computer and worrying about your feature amendments.

Who should I blame, capitalism or our stupidity or is it our insecurity? Why do we have to check emails when it is time to be with family and celebrate.

If you are running a company, it has to be your responsibility so that your peers know that when it is time for vacation. They should relax, think and spend time with self and family.
