It has been an exciting and eventful year so far! Certainly it has added a number of milestones in making life more challenging than ever. Some daring steps in both personal as well as professional fronts… As the year end approaches, its time to retrospect again on what was good, bad & ugly.
Let me start with the good things. All seem to be very much stable in the new home that we moved to last year around this time. We are absolutely on the right track towards achieving personal goals. A wonderful support from parents with their guidance in some of the important decisions I have taken in the due course. I can’t ask for anything better than this wonderful support from my parents. In the month of feb, made up my mind to quit my current employer at that time. It was hard for me to move out of Dell after such a long tenure, but thats what life is all about. Joined Aztec to work for their client Yahoo!. As I had expertise on Internationalization & localization concepts, thought my knowledge would be better exposed in an organization like Yahoo & thus joined the same in the very first week of March. During this period, I had to go through the biggest ever shock in my personal life because of some crazy people in the society. It took almost 6+ months for me to come out of that. That event can be coined as both bad & ugliest in my life so far. I shall write about this some other time. However, the focus in profession was well maintained & started to leave my foot prints at Yahoo. Met lot of new managers including Raghav, Rathi, Gigi, PSR… and new collegues Maha, KK, Ravi, Ankur… the list goes on. Everyone has an impressive personality in their own way.
Foot prints started looking bigger with well utilized opportunities everytime. Showcase, Ethnic day, hackday & Year end party are some few of those opportunities to name. Made myself available for some of the community development activities through Aztec’s Akshara Foundation & YEFI’s Parikrama to help underprivileged kids. I wish to spend more time in these activities going forward.
Another memorable event of this year is to have a web site of my own! Yes, i got the domain registed in my name for the very first time & started building the site. Unfortunately, the site is not yet complete. I need to finish this at the earliest. Also, planning to post articles on my blog on a regular basis unlike in the past. Coming to physical fitness activities, I have been in an ON and OFF mode in giving correct proportion of time. I should start planning better & should make it a part of my daily routine. Well, thats about the speciality of the year 2006. Looking forward for another great year with a humorous recap of some of the things in a very special way as below…
