Hi Fishes,
I am really looking for some serious advice to cope up with a cracked tailbone. I broke mine during a horse riding incident.

Now, I am getting seriously overweight, in fact, on the verge of getting obese, and this injury right now is pretty much killing the 2022 dream.

I do walk right now, oddly at a slow pace, for about 3-4 km each day. If there any kind of strength training I can introduce in my regimen to err not feel all so depressed with the way I am in for.

Hi Sharks and Dolphins,

How do you structure your tax filing when you have 4.8 Lacs anually Car allowance?

I have been offered 35.75 lacs fixed that constitutes 28.33 as guaranteed cash with 2.62 Retiral component (PF + Gratuity) and additional 4.8 lacs as car allowance. HR said that you do not need to buy car or anything else.
How should I navigate from this further? Also, is the amount offered as per industry standard ?

Tech Stack: Data Science and Machine Learning with 8 years experience.


What does the variable pay component includes? Does any company guarantees that employee will get that pay amount?

Also can we negotiate the variable pay?
Like can we ask new employer to add some of the amount from variable pay in fixed pay and subtract from variable pay?
