Growing in open verbose north Indian state my life journey took me to different Indian states before I sailed across seven seas for years together to enrich my professional and worldly experience - only to to end up being tied up with travesties of corporate world and its nuances. This blog as the title indicates are my "abhivyakti" which are purely my personal thoughts/views and has no bearings on my current position/titles. The purpose and the aim is a simple effort of expression by a simple soul - hope you will enjoy what you read

Through the calendar year, many of our days are devoted to work in accomplishing things and we are incredibly focus on our responsibilities- so these opportunities we have… to let go and enjoy and celebrate life, these are important aspects of maintaining Work Life Balance…we can celebrate and let go in a mindful way…so be rejoice…allow yourself to relax, get more sleep if you need to, or stay up a little later…indulge in a few extra sweets..whatever gives you pleasure…The holidays will soon get over so while they are here enjoy this special time..as osho said Life should not only be lived it should be celebrated….celebrate the next few days with your loved ones.
I appreciate all of your great work this year; it is because of you, and because we know we can do so much more for customers and clients than anyone else, that I have such great confidence in our future. Please enjoy some well deserved rest with family and friends during this holiday season, and let’s get right back to it in 2019.
Merry Christmas and wishing you a very happy new year to you, your family and your loved ones.
