Shave or Move

In my college days, I was nice student but very active and everyone in my college knew me. I was always famous for being helpful, respecting the teachers and helping every student. In the second year, I was selected by my college administration to help out college staff in recruitment and placement activities. My job would include coordinating with final years students and ask them to send their resumes and I would forward to the college administration. Also I would contact the company Human resource department to take appointment for campus placement process and my job was done.
One day the girl co-ordinator who was my senior was absent when one of the companies came to the campus. Her job was to welcome the guests in the auditorium and introduce them. But I was there in the college and in her absence, I had to welcome them. But the problem for me was that I did not shave that day and also not in formal. I was very nervous since it was not part of my job to welcome guests to the college. As the guests arrived, I gave them the flowers and a memento and took them to the auditorium. Everything did not go smooth and as planned. I could see the college staff looking at me and pointed out to meet them after the process. After the placement process was over and the college staff called me in the cabin. I thought they would appreciate me for my work and the way I managed without my partner. But they told me that due to my unprofessional look with stubble face and tough personality, it made a bad impression as I was the first point of contact. They were expecting me to be more humble, warm and look pleasant and with clean face. They further asked me about my reason not to shave. I knew I had made a mistake and even regretted for the same. They gave me strict instructions to shave if I want to be associated with college staff and be the coordinator.
Due to my mistake, they decided to add one more candidate to the team and now my role was less as expected.

Missed Opportunity in Painting competition

It was my college second year and our exams were finished. Our college was strict and only concentrated on academic learning and there were not many sports or other co-curricular opportunities. Our auditorium was also very small and most of the time it remained closed. It was only during the annual fest, our college would invite students for debate, drama, ad campaign competition.

During the annual fest, we had many teams coming from different campus to our college. But I decided not to participate this time and instead just go there and have fun with friends and motivate them to win the competition. In the second year, my personality had completely changed and I had grown my beard something like the actor Alan in hangover movie. I felt that beard is a symbol of being a strong man and my junior will be little scared of me. I went to college on the annual fest day with my stubble look and decided not to shave. In the college, one of close friend was participating in a face painting competition but at the last moment his team member opted out and did not came to the fest due to certain medical problem. There were total five teams participating and it was important being the host college to find someone who could be a volunteer and help my friend in face painting competition. I stood up for my friend and our college in order to prevent our disqualification.

But there was an issue with me as my beard was covering the whole face and there was very little area for my friend to paint my face and show his creativity. I asked my teacher to give us 10-15 minutes so that I can get shave and we can perform better to win the competition. But the competition started as per the scheduled time and my friend who was good in his art skill could not do much with my face as facial hair was so thick that it was very difficult to draw or use his sketch pens. In the end, all he could manage was paint my beard into Indian flag.

Then came the voting time for the judges and as expected we lost and came fourth. It was a bad start followed my stubble face which made us losing side.

Zest is Happiness

Every human being is different in this world and has his own likings and dislikings.Life has become more complex with people becoming less social and more virutal.We have been working more towards the goal of earning money and sacrificing our basic ZEST of our life.But for me day starts from morning shifts to evening shifts and then I feel it is enough to keep the work aside no matter even if you get paid for extra over time.Thanks to my Zest things which has made my life less complex and tension free.

Spending time with my Uncle and Aunt

I have been very fortunate to have this lovely couple in my life who have guided me to take the right decisions and help in believing in my self always.They have been great inspiration for me and I can share everything with them without any hesitation at any time of the day.I love them very much and inspired by their efforts they put every month when try to improve the lives of people and arrange some food and fruits for the poor irrespective of their age or disability.Besides my parents,they are my best friends and motivator in my life who keep on adding ZEST in me to achieve more success in life.

My Mother

No one can take the place of my mom in my life.My mom has been always there for me in every situation of my life and helping me to overcome my problems and giving me solutions.She has helped me to become self confident and gain success with hard work and dedication.I feel she is the best and I admire her very much and try to follow her moral values to get myself best life.Without my mother I cannot even survive in the planet.

My Uncle Amit and Aunt Pushpa – Teacher and Role Model

I have been very fortunate to have this lovely couple in my life who have guided me to take the right decisions and help in believing in my self always.My uncle Amit worked in Bata Company for years to become one day as general manager in their factory in NCR region and his principle was to follow your goals in your life and try to achieve them in the right manner and be honest to yourself. On the other hand,my aunt is a big believer in giving back to the society and has inspired me to do something for the poor people in my own individual ways in which I am comfortable.During their past time generally on weekdays,they try to improve the lives of people and arrange some food and fruits for the poor irrespective of their age or disability.They have been like my other family next to my parents and I have learnt so much from them.There line if conduct says that we all should focus on contributing to the society and environment.

When I was very young and immature and did not have that thinking capacity to take the right decisions for myself,they always helped me in deciding the correct path and were always standing beside my parents.Every summer holidays I would visit them for staying with them and they would treat me same way as their son and would pamper me with loads of goodies and toys which my parent disliked.When my uncle came back from office in evening,he would ask me to read newspaper and explain the sentence in my own interpretation and if I could do it in the right way,then he would give me chocolate that day.Also Amit uncle made me write 5 new words in English everyday from the dictionary which I felt offended and uninterested but now seeing my dictionary made my me,I realized its importance now and thankful to him for improving my vocabulary and grammar.I never thought that he was acting as a teacher for me as his ways were so different from traditional teaching unlike school.

100_0921

One of the instances happened one day was that I had failed in my school Maths exam and I did not have the courage to face my parents to show them the grade.At the same time,my aunt had visited my house for a small get together and she could sense automatically that I was very sad and hurt by some thing and was not talking to her.Then she called me and took me in my arms and asked me if something was wrong or if I was facing some problem.I was very opened to her and told her my marks.She took me in her arms and told me that you should tell your parents the truth and tell them that you will be work had and promise them good marks in future.I followed her technique and my mom did not utter a single word and told me at least I had courage to tell the truth.Next few days I was highly motivated to keep up for my promise and got 22 out of 25 marks.I felt very relaxed that day and called my aunt for helping me and motivating me to study.

My uncle and aunt are my role model for their blessings and guiding me throughout their life and following the right path and teaching me values and ethics in life.

MG Muthoot -Entrepreneur and Role Model

Some people makes their mark in the history and do something which is slightly edgy and different from others.No one could ever imagine that Mr MG George Muthoot,chairman of the Muthoot group would be known for one of the largest entrerprise for providing gold loan to people in the country.He started with a very small office and now his business excels with more than 4000 branches across urban and rural areas covering all areas of the country.

hjy

Mr MG Muthoot joined his family run business and through his hard work,he brought new ways of providing financial service to everyone in the society.He is considered as greatest entrepreneur of all times in banking industry and latest information tells him that he is considered as greatest contender for getting the licence to start a bank from Reserve Bank of India.He won the Mahatma Gandhi National Award by the MG National Foundation in 2001 for his remarkable achievement in the industry and his company received the SKOCH Award for Financial services.

He is the person who starts his days with prayers and meeting employees across different regions everyday and dedicated to work objectives and schedule.The other side of MG Muthoot is not known to many people.He is an philanthropic and a great teacher.He is commited to development of villages in kerala.The reason for his great success in the industry is credited to his hard work,passion,following his father traditions,strong belief in core values and ethics.

For him,every employee is considered as a part of the family and belives in maintaining strong mutual relationship and trust among his employees.The way he lead and changed the negative pereception about people taking the gold loan was the turning point in his career and he has provided opportunity to people who were financially weak and empowering them with money to fulfill their dreams and needs.Everyone now consider him as Banker for every unbanked Indian.

I consider him as my role model for his great vision and mission to serve the people with their financial purposes and encourage them to pursue their dreams and providing loans to poorest people who still dont have a bank account .
