When ever I am feeling low in life I think of my good days in Modern School


I am now based in Dubai since the last 2 years working with Kotak Mahindra International. My 11 years of work life has taken me from a small FMCG firm near Chandigarh to Global Banking giants like Citibank and Kotak. Work is quite challenging and with global economies and financial industry in turmoil, it is survival of the best.  My job is even more challenging as I have to find new ideas and innovate products that can be offered to clients and hopefully make them some money in the process.  Aptitude, eye for detail, self confidence and interpersonal skills are four pillars of any successful manager and the building blocks for these pillars were laid during my school days.  When ever I am feeling low in life I think of my good days in school and the friends I had, teachers I had and of course Mr Kapoor, who have always inspired me and supported me at all times. I still remember our trek to Pindari Glacier and Pokhra, we had a fabulous time. Can’t believe time passes by so quickly…
