I was sent off to GM Account







I was sent off to GM Account (tower 8, b wing, first floor) the day I reported to Kiran Sitaram at Times of India building MG Road (Wipro office). I met a few people there and managed to make friends. I was still with my induction group for lunch and breakfast and Gowthaman Vayapuri would take me out for tea. He was my first friend in GM Account. I was doing small hands-on exercises in ICAN 5.0.1 and bugging Raghunath Nair. Then suddenly, Ramesh Rao told me that I am needed by Prakash Thimmappa Rao in MG Road for some tool they were developing. I was supposed to take the next inter office shuttle and report to Prakash at TOI Building, 4th floor. 10 days in the GM ODC and back to MG Road. “I made friends here man! There is no way I am leaving!” Well! I ate curd rice in the cafeteria (Kamat) and left to MG Road fretting about how lonely I am going to be. Today, after almost five years (it will be five in March), I felt exactly the same way coming from CTS BTP 6th floor to CTS BTP 3rd floor. Same butterfly like feeling in my stomach and similar apprehensions about me getting lonely. Well! It is not as bad as I thought it would be. Neither was MG Road :)
