I have been struggling to write this email for the last couple of hours. I am finding it very difficult to sum up the experiences of 7 years and 2 months in a couple of lines. What a tenure it has been …. It seems just the other day that I walked into this office and then everything is history …
For me , the learning has been immense . From a purely development background, I delved into quality, process, testing, training – and simultaneously doing delivery and project and program management, setting up teams – Warranty, DNS , Alpha and TDCJ . Learning about Test Automation - QTP. Continuous Improvement, ISO certification , going on stage and taking the prize on behalf of our facility for the Best Practice Showcase in Chicago, conducting the training sessions , the list is endless ........
I will never forget the issues of “Quality Times” which I published, the book club, the parody on the office colleagues in “UTSAV” and our annual days . The pot-luck lunches and my workplace no. “191” will always remain etched on my mind.
I have seen ups and downs , I have taken lessons both from the good and the not so good . I have known whom to emulate and whom I do not want to become. I have interacted closely with so many different people and everybody has left a mark on me and made me a better and a more mature professional. I have received lots of accolades and recognition for the work I have done but there are two things which I have received in abundance here which are priceless. I have received your love and respect and I am carrying these with me forever. I am humbled and awestruck by the adoration and adulation that people have bestowed upon me . I consider myself lucky to have gained these from you. These priceless gems will be with me throughout my life …
I am feeling sad to leave … but I have a wide world in front of me now. I am not done yet and I have to reach larger horizons. I want to taste and try some different flavours and see what greater things life has in store for me.
As I strive towards the large looming horizon, I want to say a BIG Thank you to all of you . I will be able to reach my goal with your love, trust , belief and good wishes.
This is a very small world and I am sure that somewhere, someday we will meet again ! Till then adieu !
Best wishes to all of you !
