Happy Birthday VEranDA! Happy Birthday VEranDA! Happy Birthday dear VEranDA, Happy Birthday to you! Many more posts on you! Many more hits to you! Many more readers and listeners! Happy birthday to you!

While I write the blog’s post number 131, I am grinning as I recall the day we came up with the idea. In one of those exciting team meetings, people expressed the desire to create their own space online to chat about things beyond work. We chose the loveliest name in the world. No wonder, it had already been taken by somebody at Blogger and other major blogging sites. Then, Big Boss (no, don’t link this one to Rakhi Sawant or her mother) suggested to run it on our own server. Yes, VEranDA is proudly powered by Veda Informatics. I love that signature at the bottom of the page.

It is amazing to see how newcomers in the team find VEranDA as a place where they get to know more about the team and get accustomed with the culture of the organization. This encourages them to contribute to the blog and express what they feel.

Personally, the blog is very close to my heart. Many members on the team have their own blogs and even I was suggested to have one of my own. But then, whenever I wanted to say something, VEranDA was always there.

The look of the site is adorable. You log on it and feel this is “our own” blog. Nothing left to be desired. As all of us celebrate the anniversary, I would like to appreciate a few people for their commendable contribution towards the success of VEranDA.

· Palash: Even Dhyanchand did not score as frequently as my brother here published posts on VEranDA. A true blogger.

· Harish: Man with the brilliant idea
