Kudiyo na Dariyo kar ManMaani

As I had mentioned earlier, I got an opportunity to be honorable speaker for talking about Project Management and my experiences. So I had started preparing. There was one more person who was invited along with me. I did research about him. He was senior guy having project management experience which was equal to around my total experience. So I was bit nervous to know this. Obviously, he must be very much knowledgeable and I felt that I was just nothing.  But then the thought came in mind which gave me confidence back… “Though the person was much more experienced, knowledgeable, I was still there… invited along with him…  It meant I also had something in me… ☺️. So this thought boosted my confidence.  I had planned a theme about my talk. This was something new that I thought, the other person won’t talk much about, based on his profile. So I devised a rough draft in my mind.

I got busier at office and had to spend longer hours at workplace so I couldn’t actually prepare as I had expected.  However, I did take inputs from my well-wishers. Few hours before the session, I received call from my ex-Boss. I had invited him for session. He informed that he was not able to join. He did ask me about the points that I was going to talk about. I gave him my detailed plan.  He did ask me a question what if the other speaker has already covered my planned topic which I was going to have major focus on. According to him it was more likely that he would be speaking first and would cover my points. He helped me to devise plan B and plan C for my project management session. So apart from my main topic which I myself had planned to talk more about, I had two different topics which he asked me to be prepare as well. I had actually not thought in this direction and didn’t had plan B topic. (Remember, it was my first session L ). I was really so thankful to my Boss. I was really glad that I had involved him in my this small thing. He had always given me great inputs whenever I needed.  Also about delivering style he gave me a suggestion. He knew my strengths and he advised me accordingly…. to use my “adding personal touch” style and coat it with humor. This was great. Yes, I could do that easily. So I did bit research and prepared on these things as well.


I was feeling very nervous while I was travelling to the place I was supposed to go for session. As usual, the music was on and radio was playing several songs. I was not actually consciously listening to it and actually, I didn't notice the songs that time but I guess my subconscious mind had noted them since I sang exact those songs later. .


Finally,  I went to the place and I was given a seat. The sitting arrangement made me miss my old company.   I took a look at the audience and said “People On the Floor” in my heart. When I was introduced to the other speaker, and he wanted to shake hands, though I responded professionally but in my heart, I started singing, “Diwane rukja, tera hamse saamna hai, Aankhose chu le, chuna haathose mana hai”.  I was under pressure before some time and now I was singing Himesh's songs in my heart...  I was assured now. The nervous me was taken over by the mastikhor, bindhast, confident myself ...  I knew, I was going to rock it... and it did happen…

It was great session.  I started with ice-breaker about food and hunger. It connected instantly with the audience. To make  techie-things easier to understand, I gave examples from the Hindu mythological stories which would relate to project management. I compared the project management processes with the incidents in mythology. People liked that very much.  I was confident throughout the session.  There I was, with those knowledgeable people delivering a session with the confidence ...

Thank you God… for giving me this opportunity… thank you God… for giving those helpful people around me…  thank you God for making it good…. Thank you God for boosting my confidence…

At the time of publishing this post, I am already contacted by one other person for similar session at other place…  Though we haven’t talked it through yet, point is I can make something in this direction as well.  🙂

Himeshs Fans

I was writing blog post and suddenly my son got up from bed. For something my homepage gave me suggestions for several things and this video was one of them. My son wanted to see this. I am strict mother for screen time for my son but this time I listened to him. Before I start video, he informed me that, this video was in my mobile phone. Oh.My.God...He was right,  it was there around a year ago and I used to play it while cooking and my 4years old still remembers this.
 He was so into the song that he refused to go outside when I jokingly asked him for long ride.  After this video, he wanted to view the one - where this guy is in car. There are many people in cars and they take him out. Oh my God.... He identified Himesh n he was talking about the song Tere Bina... I have to view it too on his demand...




By the way, is he is turning into Himesh's fan?

Ruk Jana nahi Tu kahi haarke

It started with Pehchaan, continued with I am Alive and rings kept shining bright.... Though talks about these were going on since a month but flyers and social media events were not ready until now. They are live now so I can share the good news. So there is an event organized by one good organization and I am invited as honorable guest speaker. I will be talking about Project Management.

My audience will be all kind of leaders. I am happy but bit nervous too. I am confident that I will rock it, by God's Grace. As I had already mentioned, after PMP, I did project management consulting for few companies but this opportunity of a full fledged session is first time.

Out of nowhere, this person contacts me and then I take my own good time to respond to that offer and several back n forths and here it is... it seems the networking done for my extra responsibility has started paying off well. Thank You God... I know, You will do everything perfectly.

Destiny and Internal Connection

I know people who feel this destiny and other things just bull s**t. Not everybody believes. But I have seen people who experience things you can't explain logically with your brain.  These things can't be explained in words... you can't talk about because you fear nobody will believe... These things just need to be experienced. You don't have just co-incidence happening for 7453th time for something specific. 

This is kind of old post but somehow came up today again to me.... Kind of destiny may be....
Whenever I try to find out some things about future, I don't get them right or don't get them at all. .. I remember, in childhood, I actually got one book from library which was only for this purpose like knowing future. It had lots of questions like surveys and I did whole book exercise by answering all of them on fullscape pages and did the calculation and at the end I got the result as 'Your future is very unpredictable. Nothing can't be told about your future. May lord Saai bless you... '. Seriously? The whole book was only for finding the future and it actually worked for other members in my family... Anyway, Dear God... I don't know what future has in store for me...  If  you are trying to hint some things in my future to me, I don't understand them... rather my logical brain don't want to understand them. Please be more explicit n subtle. Fir kya ho kya khabar...dekha hai kisne kal....

MahiRaavana

Took my Boy to a kids fun event in the city.. There was this Chota Bhim, Kaliya and... MahiRavana... There were lots of games, puzzles, Coloring Competition, hitting balls, gun shooting, dancing n what not... We did all of that for hours... But what I was impressed with was... MahiRavana...  He was first character came to event after we reached and frankly speaking I had no idea about him. I couldn't answer my son's questions regarding him. So first task after I got chance was to search about him  .  Ohh... I have heard this story. I just didn't know his name. What's exact name, btw? Telugu literature...  Okay... I didn't know this... This is something new...



My Boy liked MahiRavana more than Chota Bhim n Kaliya... But he kept calling him, MahiRaam... I guess, MahiRavana was more friendly with kids n photos. Even though his eyes were supposed to be looking dangerous, I found his eyes cute.. Caught them glowing in my camera too..  Anyway, I need to be more aware with these kids stories now...

Memories and Dress Code

My organization has a very well defined dress code policy and I do follow it rigorously. Being people's manager, I know I need to led by example and hence I never ever wear anything which don't follow the dress code.

 

I  was missing my previous organization from some time so this morning, being Friday, I thought to wear a top which will remind me of old days. And I did it. While I was commuting to work, while waiting at a signal it clicked to me that I was wearing a shirt without collar and as per policy, it is not allowed even on Friday!!! Oh God… problem…  what the heck I did carrying out in emotions… I was already too far from my place. But being a confident woman, I know how to fix wardrobe problems. Called my female colleagues and asked them to get something to cover up my top. One of them who had actually left for work, went back home again and then kept calling me that I would prefer blue jacket or black long shrug and other accessories…. Come on guys, don't make me feel guilty about my emotions…  don't make this a big deal…. Get anything you want… I just want to follow the dress code policy.

 

 

But God what is this?  I mean…  do you think, I should not even accept the fact to myself that I do miss my old organization…. Sometimes……… I do… and you know… you know…

If You see Her, say Hello



As usual, I had always only listened to this song. I had never seen the visuals of it. And I actually couldn't find it. There are so many versions of this song. Different languages, different lyrics for 'her' song... And there is 'his' version also... You know, If you see him, say Hello one.... But I wanted to listen to Bob Dylan version now with video.
Few months back when I posted about song in Trolls, I mentioned how difficult it was to search for it... It was, ' Hello....Is it me you looking for....?' . Now, the video for the original 'Hello' song was easy to find... But when I was searching for the Trolls version, it was not giving me English version.
This time I was searching for 1978 video in English.  I didn't find what I was searching for. Nevermind, at least song is the same.
But look at other videos... Everyone is singing this song on guitar.... 🎸... Where is my guitar...? Looking at myself, I don't think guitar is happening to me until I am 80-85-90 years old... :(
