It’s been more than a month now working for GE Digital and it has been a mixed bag experience. The positive and the best thing happened to me here is meeting few bunch of crazy, fun-filled, easy-going friends. I’m an introvert and had a setback on how would I make friends being new in the company, would I be comfortable? etc. but everything faded in couple of days. Our’s is a group of 6 people which includes Venu, Kamal, Swati, Unni Krishnan, Navin and myself. One thing which is diverse in our group is that all of them belong to different states yet have a very good understanding among ourselves .
A small introduction about my friends. Let me start with VENUPRAKASH, from Telangana, has macho body and tells “Baigaan” often. Next comes, KAMAL, he is from Indore who is dirty at mind but clean from heart. Anything you say to him, it gets converted into adult talk, such are his thoughts😀. In comes SWATI, who laughs more than smiling budha. She is very jolly in nature and works as security. I meant security engineer 😉. UNNI KRISHNAN is Business Analyst by profession but financial advisor for us. Last but not least, NAVIN is chilled out guy ready to get hitched (no offense bro😊).
We have been planning for a day out but I played spoil sport there to which I was given proper smack. This time, they planned for a dinner and I had no say in it and rather imposed with a condition, to tag along my wife for diner. After lots of discussion, we decided to dine at PUNJABI Grill, Koramangala and book the table at 8.30 pm. As usual we reached the Rendezvous 15mins late but friends being friends came an hour late. I had ordered in the time span they arrived and the laughter started. These guys brought a bouquet for us, which was so thoughtful and nice of them.
We ordered our food and the laughter time started which seems never ending. By the time we checked our watch it was 11.40 pm. We came out of the restaurant and took few clicks and parted our ways. It was refreshing to have dinner with them after such a boring week of training (which was hardly of any use). Many of people who saw us that we know each other’s from long time but the fact was it was merely a month that we friends met and got jelled easily. One quote which I happen to read earlier by some poet/author which says something like this into this situation is:
