Mondays like this turns my brain juice into corporate thinker. Like my brain literally turns! The past weekend was a little friendly to me. I spent some “ME TIME”.
- Clicked photos of a black cat
- Had bottles of beer
- Abused Netflix (Watched The Crown – The story of Queen Elizabeth)
- Lazied a lot (Just belly popped and slept a lot!)
- Enjoyed the afternoon drizzle
- Played with my dog (Bullet the pug)
So now…it’s Monday! It’s a drill for me to read my Flipbaord and watch the news while I am having coffee in the morning before going to work. You know, you wouldn’t want to be left out during morning corporate conversations with your peers, right? Anyways, as I was playing with the TV Channels earlier, hovering from CNN to ANC, I clicked the Bloomberg Channel and came across David Rubenstein Show. Indeed, very interesting!
And as a treat for you my dear followers, I am sharing with you the episode where he interviewed one of my favorite leaders, Warren Buffet. Talking about inspirational people? Count me in! I guess David will always be a part of my morning drill!
Just a teaser, we both didn’t want to go to college! 😀
Happy Monday morning everyone, or happy Sunday to whichever part of the earth you are right now!
I forget at times to make my own magic, even with all the best ingredients staring at me right in the face.
Nothing beats breakfast in bed with the one I love beside me – my job (while watching Donald Trump running his last Presidential Campaign in Florida). This guy cracks me up – seriously.😝
Bdw, not white bed sheets. It’s not breakfast in bed. It’s breakfast on couch while dreaming of my bed. Good morning beautiful earthlings!
Fight Club kind of life.
Working from home.
Pancakes and coffee for breakfast.
Just waiting for my Tyler Durden to punch me straight on the jaw – I guess.
I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.
It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything.
You met me at a very strange time in my life.
Pizza delivery with bottles of beer on the side.
This is my life and it’s ending one minute at a time – if you understand what I am saying.
Oh, Fridays like this. I have been eating junk the whole day. TGIF!
Can somebody send me an Indian food?
Rare chance indeed!
The day I met the CEO of now rated as world’s most powerful IT Services Brand, Mr. N Chandrasekaran. 🙂
A little pat on the back would not be so bad. TGIF!

Living on the edge, in the space between what’s next.
Not the perfect shot, but I would like to press a pause on this busy, manic Monday to give a warm shout out to the entire Leadership Team of Sales Rain BPO for providing me, and my department an untiring support to reach our corporate goal for 2016. I am eternally grateful to everyone who has been part of the team. I cannot thank you all enough for all the hard work and dedication each of you have poured into for the success of our company. I cannot name you all, but if you will have the opportunity to read short literary, you would know that you are among, whom I am thankful for.
I also cannot thank all our client, partners, shareholders who’ve continuously patronized, and given us the sweetest feedback and who has treated Sales Rain BPO as one of theirs. You have all encouraged me so much over the past one year. To my Chairman, Mr. Parvez Khan and CEO, Mr. Rajeev Agarwal who have given me a place where I could channel my energy, creativity and passion that can serve others. To say that the past one year has been challenging would be huge understatement, but they’ve also been fun. It has taught me patience and compassion in ways I never thought possible. My job has opened my eyes to a colorful array of possibilities, and taught me how to deal with them. It has also forced me to immerse myself deeper into doing what I love to do, while learning more about myself in the process, and share these achievements with those around me – and I am happy to say that I am not done. Sales Rain would continue to evolve as I continue to learn. I am grateful to this part of my life, and couldn’t be prouder to say, this is one of the best chapters of my memoir.
