My life at work - the trials & tribulations!!

Life @ NIIT

7:51 AM
It's been a Month and 25 days - Kinda qualifies as 2 months - I guess!!!

The life has been interesting and fast.
I'm onto something new here. A new creature, so to say - something new that makes life interesting for students. It makes their learning experience better!!

I have a great team - some of the best people & they're an absolute pleasure to work with.

A small discussion on some of them would be of inertest here. They make life at work worthwhile.
Let me start with Ranit. He's a gem of a guy - an asset to every team - a peoples person. 45 days of working with him - and I can't find a single issue with this guy - he sits right beside me and is the my biggest help on the project.

Ranit(L) and Karan(R).

Then there's Rajiv. Very practical - knows all the ground realities. He is a knowledge bank like no other. Keeps me aware of all that is going around. He is so soft spoken - you'd never know he exists - unless - he speaks !;-)


That's Rajiv & Vandana

Then there's Roop - a total Balancer. She never lets me fly - keeps my feet firmly on the ground. A very intelligent young lady - that she is.

No discussion would be complete without Karan. Ancient indian mythology refers to Karan & Arjun as being siblings. Only this time I'm older. He has a great sense of humour and his desire to learn is infectious. Quite a harwirking fellow there. Pleasure to work and be with!!

Karan - again!!!

More on the others later!!!

All in all - I'm startng to like my life at NIIT.
