It Happened To Me :)

When was the last time you met a guy that you said for yourself, that “I want to be like this guy.............”well I don't know about you guys but for me I had met none, but when I met this person I immediately said those exact words.... he was so interesting that even quantum physics will seem like a boring subject (But when you come to think of it, Physics is a boring subject isint it? :P)

So here is how it all happened, couple of days back our seniors informed us, that there is this person who wants to hire students as part timers to do volunteer work in PR(Public Relations) and interested guys can meet him in a Cafe at 2.30 sharp. I had to attend a wedding that day along with my frenz,(It was boring as hell but the Carrot Halwa was scrumptious :P) but I and a couple of others somehow managed and made it. On time (Indian and on time???... Shabashi toh do yaar.... ;)).

We went in the cafe and saw the person whom we had to meet speaking with somebody else, we sat down on a free table, I was having hundreds of thoughts at that moment like, “Are the oatmeal biscuits kept here free?”, “Can I eat them?”, when he came and joined us....

Krishna B Mariyanka, Head Of Aikya Global (The name doesn't ring a bell right??.... It soon will) he introduced himself, and said how he has a 10 month old business of Communications and PR, and how he has the small client circle which include SHELL and TATA's sub company named Jisco or tisco (I don't remember, cause I was too mesmerized listening to him... :)), and some others, that captivated my interest completely, because as you know how Shell is the number 2 oil company in the world, and they are no way small......

He further told how he organized events for them, and also how he had organized more than 1200 events in his career spanning more than 20 years working for different companies, which also include organizing of a miss world event which was held in India in 1998 which he was part of.... I was just sucked in more and more towards his experiences, but the real shocker came when he said how he had started working for 6000/month in 1995 to 2008 where he was earning 2,50,000/month as the head of corporate communications in Shell, which he had resigned so that he could have his own business set up. I ask you who does that??, Nobody, because that needs courage and this guy seemed to have plenty of it, Plenty.

He then said about how one should not run towards something, just because it seems glamorous, and everybody else is doing it, but one should do what his heart says, and how he/she should work towards it to achieve the desired goals, he mingled with us in such a manner like we knew each other for years.

He asked each of us what our interests were in and offered us genuine help whenever we need some, over a cup of cappuccino, he joked, he mingled and captivated our minds with such elegance that we were just left spell binded....


After telling about how we could work for him, we parted and as I came out I was looking towards him from the window and was just telling myself one thing, “I wanna be like this guy...” cause he went towards his dreams and in way is still pursuing some of them, and I took a decision that whatever happens for sure one day I will reach where I wanna be, for sure I will

Take care c ya next time............
