One Year With A Team

(Photos: Shahan)

Just like my other friends, when he told me that he is leaving abroad today morning, I felt sad. Yet, he left with his family for a vacation abroad. Also, he is going for a job hunt there. I still remember him blushing when we asked about his lover. His cute little chubby cheeks turned pink at that time. At office, whenever I completed a sentence, I used to turn at him and ask “Isn’t Shan?”… Like a little brother, he used to smile at me and will say, “Yes. Why not?”! He loved luxuries and gadgets a lot. We worked together for one year. Together, we had witnessed many ups and downs, ego clashes and happy. Anyway, wishing him all the very best and a bright future! That is the specialty of today. Last year too, this day was special for me.

20 January 2011 was my first day in office. It was the day I realized the value of holding the designation as ‘employed’. Many friends, so many web promotion techniques and a lot of fun that is what I could get from my company. I can proudly say that I’m bonded to each and every member of this team. I was so delighted when my previous manager told me that it is the presence of me which make her visit this office frequently. Initially, when I joined I had no intention to stay here for more than three months. Things, situations and clients have changed. However, the only thing that remains is the bonding between the team. It is the same that holds me close to this company.

For past one year, I sit in the same chair and use the same system. This place is so special because I’m the first person whom everyone wishes when they enter the office. Similarly, each and every one while leaving the office smile and wave their hands at me. They are my strength, support and encouragement. We enjoy here like our college days along with giving serious attention to our work too.

It has been one year since I joined Webnamaste. My first job, first salary… Words getting choked while writing and so nothing more to say except a big thanks to Team Webnamaste!
