Visit to Lonavala Khandala in Monsoon 2019

Pune and near by places turn into paradise as soon as Monsoons start. Being a travel freak, I ensure I make good use of monsoon time for my travels every year.
This year it is extremely special because I am accompanied by my husband.This Monday, we started from Pune to Lonavala , our driver was quite good, he first took us to Narayani Dham temple which is in the starting of Lonavala. It was really a positive and amazing feeling visiting this temple. The temple is very well maintained and very huge.
From there we went to Bhushi Dam, it was quite crazily beautiful and happy there though it is crowded. Going there with a saree was quite a feat.
From there we visited the Lions point, Tiger point, Khandala. It was totally a dramatic, beautiful trip because it was cloudy , drizzling and was very beautiful spending time in those monsoon clouds…not to forget those hot chai and onion pakodas.
What are you waiting for….don’t waste the monsoon weekend…go and explore a beautiful place.

Loads of Love,

Celebrating 14 years at work :)

#FourteenAtWork #Celebrating14Years
Want to express gratitude to God, My Dad( Retired Bank Manager… doesn’t really like hearing No and his trust me made me what I am today), My Mom ( The most positive, never say no lady of my life), My elder brother( I still copy him because he is the best, no exaggeration in saying I am like his daughter),), My Second brother( The Dhoni of our house, the captain cool..my support system right from school), Bharadwaj Bro…my first Guru of Project Management, My Mentors Dr P. Sudhakar(What am I without this Sir’s Physics teaching), Sangeetha ( Learnt a lot professionally ), DMR( my first mentor in ITSM),Martin( if you follow my posts you know that he is my Dumbledore and Yoda), Amit( my life coach, my bestie..yeah I see your expressions..but trust me he is a gem), Ajit Kanitkar ( my mentor and great human with very very aggressive value system) for grooming me to what I am today…Completed 14 years of Journey in my career…last but not least this past year was terrible and I might not have made it without the nudge, push and trust of my Assistant Vice President husband ( not flaunting the title but the league he belongs and how mentally tough he is and encourages me to be )…it really matters a lot having super amazing, super supporting spouse…such spouse won’t let you give up….and thanks to my friends who believe that I am a special and who in all these never got bored listening to my cribbing and who supported me all the times…. .

Yes, I had the urge to quit somany times when things were tough, but with the above mentioned support system I am assured they won’t let me quit just like that , they will only make me ready and strong for that situation to handle. Looking forward for much more years at career…must say journey from a Physics Lecturer at college in 2005 to Instructional Designer at a startup to Process Manager, to Process Consultant , to Process Owner, to Project Manager, to PMO Head to Head of Learning and Development was quite fascinating and amazing.

Hare Krishna 🙏🏼
