Goa to Mumbai..

Hi everyone!!!! I hope you all are fine there.First let me say sorry for coming alive so late on TISA. :) . Ever since I became part of TISA my life gets turn i could not imagine.Earlier all negative thoughts were coming to my mind about life ,my career,my dear once & what not?
Thanks to TISA, Harish ,JP,Dr Sachin & numerous fellow friends who help me to be what I'm today.I know no one is perfect but we can always give it a try to be close to perfect. For me its like a magic which turns me upside down & showed me the way to move ahead. Since I was in Goa ,i always imagine to be in Mumbai cos being a mumbaikar i always wanted to be in Mumbai,with my family,with dear once.but i did not have courage to answer a interview call because of stammering. SO many calls I just could not get through my fear. One fine day i just sat on Goa beach & spoke to myself after so many years!!! My inner self just wanted to scream out. He told me to just go for it everything will be alright. & as far as stammering is concern,on phone u don't know other person & also he doesn't know you either . SO WHATS THE POINT TO WORRY???? I thought for a while & say thanks to myself.& then calling to the companies ,consultancies, friends , references started.got responses some negatives,some good responses.One company i called & response was very good. I came to Mumbai thinking of as if i already got what i want!!! Four rounds I completed with out any hassle,shortlisted for last round with MD of the company . I just went inside his cabin.We had a great discussion .After completion,he told me to wait outside & after five min gave me offer letter. SO relieved & happy that time. I think it all happens just because of my acceptance & to carry myself the way i'm. Now i'm in Mumbai again going to talk with my inner-self. I just wonder what new possibilities he wanted to offer me. Thank you TISA & my friends for much needed support . You are always my inspiration & always with me during my good & during my not so good days... Thanks Again!!!!!

But now see, the same SNATOSH!

Dear Santosh,

You will be missed dearly by all of us here in Goa. You brought in a spark in our meetings, participated with zeal in all the activities. Even if you couldn't come to meetings because of your tight schedules, you saw to it that you were in touch on phone!

Your passion to work on being a better self is and will be your greatest strength.

Nice photo by the way! Sweet memories from Goa... :) :)
