The year that wasn’t …

Year 2008 has been most action packed year in my life …

It started on a terrible note … dad fell seriously ill … and for almost a month he was on bed.

Then came the excitement … the matrimonial process finally gave some results and I got engaged! (phew… finally!!!) … that too just before the V-day and I had a nice time :)

Holi at home (after 15 years break) was fun … not too much though as I did miss my circle of friends …

Then trouble struck again … with my fiancée met with an accident … which put her down on bed for long 2 months …

My cousins (sis) had an extra doze of fun at Rakhi with me being around at home! Gosh… that’s too many festivals I have been at home!

World economy dropping like a pack of cards and jobs under the scanner …

Then again, this Diwali was no different from last year … me being home! (too many trips to home already!!!)

Then came the D-day of my life … and I got married (do I need to say more!) … a huge dent in my bank account!; thought a trip to higher hills was something I always wanted to do and reaching to 13k ft was an awesome feeling …

The year end hasn’t been great with my uncle again getting seriously ill – hospitalized and operated upon… hope things improve as the year starts …

The New Year resolution!!!well, I think married men shouldn't make any :)

Wishing you and bhabhiji a great new year!! Have a great time together

Long, long time ago in India, companies were left puzzled when they saw their profit figures and the footfall of customers dwindle for no apparent reason. Managers tried to probe the reason by going on the floor and servicing the customers themselves but to their surprise, could discover nothing. Then one day a smart manager innocently asked one of the everyday shoppers, Mrs. Sharma, to share her experience at the store with the management. She reluctantly agreed and started listing down objective observations and left everyone astonished. The managers got to work and acted on the feedback. Within no time, the good old days of the store returned and shoppers like Mrs. Sharma were secretly commissioned to maintain high standards of customer service and thereby improving the shopping experience delivered in every industry.
