Its my turn to say BYE!

Life @ Group FMG / BORN…

I will say this is the best part of my life which had a significant & meaningful transformation.

20 months back I stepped into Group FMG with heart full of dreams and hopes about my career. Now I am gonna step out of BORN with pride as my dreams have come true and my hopes have been answered!

I should thank each and every one of you for being part of the reason behind my meaningful days.

I specially thank Nathan who gave me opportunity to work in this wonderful work place. “Be the part of our growth, and I will take care of your growth.” A promise given by him during my interview and he has fulfilled his words in all possible ways. Thank you so much!

I thank Prakash Gurumoorthi, who has inspired me in multiple ways especially by his clarity in speech. Whenever my mind remember his name, my ears used to hear his voice automatically. In addition with my thanks, I request him to apologize me as I haven’t found the answer for his question, “There is something lagging with Flipkart. What is that?” A question you asked all during our induction program.

I thank Nithin, Godson, Dhana, Sridhar, Seetha, Dhanasakthi, Melvin, Sangs, Joel, Arvind and Kalidas under whom I’ve worked. I’ve learnt a lot from you all and I believe that I had been proved myself as a quality resource.

I thank Jacqueline, Nick, Luis and Dom for being helpful to take my works to clients and being supportive enough to interact with clients effectively.

TRIAD, my first project that helped me to prove what I’m capable of to Group FMG folks. Without the support of Narmadha, Muruga Pandi, Prakash, Dheen, Senthil, Suresh, Andrew, Logesh and every one from TRIAD, I would have not delivered my best to the client. I thank each and every one of you.

I should specially thank for his patience while I learnt and code PHP (Actually, I’m a front-end developer). Whenever he calls me, that should be for a tech talk or to mention a mistake I made with my LARAVEL code. He is none other than Karthik. And it was a great experience with Veera, Diva and Guna for the client Blinkx. We were well known for “People who leave office sharply @ 5″ Unfortunately we were not known for our late night calls every (business) day.

Salim, Sam, Inba and Jabir… Without you people, I would have struggled a lot in my job and missed a lot to learn in my profession. You will be remembered as a mentor throughout my life. Thanks a lot!

Digital Operations…
Where I spent most part of my days which introduced Deva, Babin, Bino, Sathish, Pradeep, Senthil, Nalla Muthu, Kiran, Kalaiyarasi, Thandabani, Ajai, Anand, Rakesh and more. Behind every name, there is a story of introduction. Thank you one and all!

In spite of being into Digital Operations, I got chance to work with eCommerce department. That is the place where I found such a supportive and jovial colleagues (actually friends) like Sridhar, Siva, Srittam, Manimaran, Bhanurekha, Manjula, Bala, Tarun, Rakesh, Kaushik, Purush, Poornima, Nalini, Praveen and Archanaa.

“Time has the power to bring anyone back from your past.” You people, Thamarai Selvi, Kokila, Kanagaraj, Sathya, Arumugam, Sathish and Sunel have made this magical words come true. It is my pleasure to have you in my career trek under multiple employers.

I thank Kishore, the one who brought me into FMG, Antony, Uthra, Naveen, Rajitha, Balaji, Salma, Gijo from HR team. You were friendly than I expected. You were jovial than I had assumed. You all people changed my mind-set of how a HR will be. A special thanks for your Greetings mails and appreciation mails which are simply awesome!

I thank Sasi, Munish and every support and admin giants. Without your friendly support, I wouldn’t have tasted my success.

I thank Hem Kumar, Ramesh and every one from Business Development team for your friendly smile whenever we cross each other.

I thank security staffs for offering a warm greetings in every morning and smile greetings in the evening.

Oops, I missed few more.

Vettri, Anandharaj, Thanigai, Raja Mohan. These are all the names of people who have not just been part of my career but also in my personal life. It is my great pleasure to have you all my family circle.

I thank each and everyone from BORN for being part of my MEANINGFUL DAYS and I wish you all the very best!

Don’t forget to drop a smile when we meet again. Time has the power to bring anyone back.

Time to Thank My Special People Who are Behind My Career Trek

Coming out of college with a job offer is a blessing of god. I had been blessed with that gift. Just assume how much happy I would have been. But my bad luck, the job offer was from a BPO company which would give offer letter even to a school student for the same position. The moment I came to know about that news, my vision on my career went black. I seriously had no clue on what my future gotta be. I was needed to kick start my job hunting which is harder than a freedom struggle in these days.

Now I’m happy about what I’m today. There are plenty of people behind this who have supported, motivated, guided and helped me to reach this position. I would like to make the world know who they are. And the people are…

4 Ultimate Factors That Empty My Wallet In My Chennai Life

Empty Wallets

“Marriage? I would like to think about it two more years later. Because I will be financially fit to start my marriage life.” This is what my college friend’s words. In the mean time, when I had visited my native and met my school friend who was dropped out of education during school life,  his words was, “Life is going smooth. She takes care of my children, family support is one more plus for me”. But both friends are in same age category. One guy afraid to take charge of family life when the another one enjoys it. The one who afraid of future earns more than the another, who don’t even have a regular income. What goes wrong between these two? Undoubtedly the place where they live. URBAN Vs VILLAGE.

From my past five years of life at Chennai, I refined what things going wrong at urban life. Whenever I visit my home town, which is a village belongs to Tirunelveli District, I could cleverly differentiate my life style from village and urban. In this article, I would like to express four ultimate factors that empty my wallet in my Chennai life. Let me go ahead!

1. Basic Needs:

Polluted air is the only thing for which I don’t pay here. During my life at home town, I have never thought about paying for water, home. But now I need to sacrifice more than 25% of my income to those basic needs. My dad used ask my mother about home needs and my mom’s request would be few vegetables and some kitchen needs. We where never need to buy rice. But here that’s what 70% of our kitchen expense. Without these expenses we can’t even sustain our life. “We should never calculate how much spend for food”, my dad used to say. So I rarely think of these expense. But the next coming will give you the shock.

2. Unavoidable hangouts:

Software Industry is what all about team work. Team work is all about mutual understanding between colleagues. Misunderstandings will always exits between two different characters. But we are not in a school or college to use alternate friend as a communication media. Every one should be a friend or at least act like a friend. The only possible way to maintain mutual understanding is hangouts. I don’t mean a week-end trip to resorts or pubs and clubs. I just try to figure out casual outings such as restaurants and films. Even though Chennai has been blessed with quality restaurants and theaters, what they charge for their quality makes us to stubborn. I used to have minimum of one restaurant visit every week. But when I’m in my native the maximum I could eat in a hotel will be Rs. 100 which what my every day budget for lunch here. lolz

3. Reachable advertisements

During my school days, I had a dream to shop at Pothys taste Arun ice cream, watch a cricket match in the stadium and enjoy every thing being advertised in the television. But I was supposed to travel a whole night to do that which was not at all practical at that time. A single new shirt during my Festival celebration and my b’day was more than enough for my dad to bring smile on my face. But now, every thing is reachable. Its all about matter of minutes and hours to own it. As a normal man, I am being convinced by the promotions and advertisements.

4. Necessity to be trendy

I can’t go to office without shoes. I can’t think of a day without perfume. I have to be smart. I have to look like a professional guy. My mobile phone should be a smart phone to check my clarify my questions on the go. I shouldn’t say, “sorry, low balance”. I can’t come to office with the same kind of dress though out the year. Otherwise I can’t sit on the chairs for which I was dreaming for 20 years. No need to tell expenses of apparels, especially branded ones now. In the above list, I don’t need to worry of any thing, if my life is at my home town.

More than these list, I face plenty of problems in my Chennai life that can’t be narrated in words. Then how do I can think of my marriage life?


My days without my close friends

My life! It has been majorly with my friends, inspite of spending with my family , especially after my college life. I’m sure that I wouldn’t have been writing this article, if I was spending this weekend with my friends. Yes, my recent days are moving without my friends. Time and situation has taken my friends fare away from me. I never felt disturbed when my weekends where with my friends. But this weekend, I feel alone.

I’ve been surrounded with neighbors  They smile at me every morning. They tries to be a friend of me. But I couldn’t match them with my friends. I had been isolated from my friends, when they where with me. I was engaging myself in multiple works when they where forcing to take me away for hangouts. Now I could feel how much I have missed them.

In my company, I have been witnessed as a calm guy who will never get tensed. But my friends only know what I am and my avatar of being angry man. Whatever may be the problem, my friends where my target. But they never took my words serious and understood why I am talking like that.

Now I have time to spare for entertainment, especially on weekends. But my weekends are being wasted with Facebook. There is a proverb, “you know the important of the shadow only when you walk under the sun”. Now I experience that proverb.

Now my friends are just click away in Facebook and call away through phone calls. But FB and mobile phones can’t carry my expressions to them. God keeps blessing me with new faces. But the day I started earning money, I couldn’t find a face that can be an alternate of my friends. I have set certain boundaries beyond which I couldn’t walk away with my colleague friends.

Even though I was a Electrical Student, I chose Software Engineering as my career. I never felt bad for this shift, even though it I could have been earning more bugs as a Electrical Engineer. But know my thinking goes like, I would have been with my friends, if I was into Electrical Erection field.

I don’t know when those days will come back. I don’t know when I can fight with my friends without any reasons. I don’t know when we can stay together. But… I will be waiting for those days to come back in my life.

Miss you my dear friends!
