A New Year and a New Job


For people who are connected with me, this would not come as much of a shock but yes, with this post comes a big change for me. By the time this post gets published, I would have already moved on from MindTree Ltd and started work at Mariner, my new work place. This would also mean that I have changed my base from London, UK to Charlotte, USA. Mariner I have lots of fond memories about MindTree and the decision to part was indeed very difficult. I will definitely miss my colleagues there and wish them all the very best for the future. At the same time, I am also very excited to join Mariner and look forward to working and learning from some of the most talented people I have known. Hopefully, I will also be able to contribute something. The new year has got me a new job and I am looking forward to a lot of things. I would like to end this post with a New Year wish that I had read sometime back, for all of my readers- I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind. I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself!

    After recently moving to London with a new job myself, I had in mind to offer you a drink as a small token of gratitude for all the knowledge that you have shared here. Clearly my opportunity has passed.
    I wish you the best of luck in your new venture.

    @Rakesh : Thank you 🙂
    @Braga : Thanks for the wishes, and also for informing about the link. Rectified it now.
