LIFE BEYOND WORK IN THREE WORDS
Joy, Entertainment, Compassion
PASSION BEYOND WORK
I am passionate about ‘networking’ and do so as much as possible.
I network with people from various fields and not only HR. This gives me a chance to learn more about people and their life learnings. I also get together with friends, from the HR world, as well as from school and college, and learn from them. I believe in staying in touch with some old favourite teachers and bosses, and seek their mentoring and blessings from time to time.
I’m also passionate about acting. I did a lot of mono acts, drama, recitation and elocution during my student days. Unfortunately, I couldn’t pursue acting much after the start of my career. Being keen to learn acting more professionally, I’m currently doing a course in acting and also plan to join a theatre coaching programme.
I start my day with a glass of warm water. This is followed by a morning walk for 45 minutes to an hour.
Post that, I have my favourite beverage, tea with family, chit chatting, browsing through news and events, LinkedIn and so on. Also, I enjoy some time petting and cuddling with Tyche, our loved pet Labrador.
On a working day I generally leave for office around 8:45 am.
An ideal weekend should be as relaxing as possible. My time is spent with family, shopping, watching movies, eating out and on a video call with parents. Keeping an eye on self-development, I try to learn something new every weekend by reading or browsing or indulging in some impactful conversations with someone.
I enjoy watching movies and try to watch popular movies/web series recommended by friends. I also network a lot.
LAST FUN HOLIDAY
A two-day get together with my school classmates at a resort a couple of months ago was a fun holiday. We had an awesome time reminiscing good old days.
GIVING BACK TO THE SOCIETY
I would prefer not to divulge details since it’s about engaging with society and the joy of giving. However we try and do whatever possible for old-age people and children on certain occasions.
I mentor young professionals, which to me is a way of giving back to the profession. In the process, I also benefit from some reverse mentoring as well.
