har nayi cheez ke baare mein
woh bachchon si dilchaspi
aur badon sa pyar dikhaake
kandhe par dena thappi

bade bade sapnon ko lekar
chchoti khushiyaan jeena
woh akhbaar ke safhe palat kar
maze se cigarette peena

uss hansi mein shauk hai
shauk hanste rehne ka
un baaton mein jo bhi ho
shukriya unhe kehne ka

kisi ke roomie, kisi se baangla,
har rishta inka anokha
Sab se Love, mujh se **x
par kisi ko na de dhokha

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

· Everybody who responded to my killers

Here, I leave you with my 10 favourite posts on VEranDA:

Pet Your Troubles Away

Prelude – The Unlamented Nomad

The Awakening

The Day I Painted My face Orange

When not in office, I think…

Who would have opposed Rupali from switching on the fan?

Who would have distracted the team with killers?

Who would have connived with Priya to annoy Shalini?

Who would have given people a chance to crack gay jokes?

Who else would have laughed at what Arunesh said?

Who would have told Deb B that winters are still a month away?

Whom would Palash mentor?

Who would mentor Asif? (vested interests involved)

Who will gossip with Ranjit in Punjabi?

Who would persuade Vidya, Raji and Hammad to HOB? (Beware Saurav and Maheswaran.. u dirty minds.. there are more things common between them than just the gender.. both are new joinees)

Who would discuss winter vacation plans with Mayank?

Who would eat up Swapna‘s lunch ? Oh no, many people are fighting for that!!

I am coming tomorrow.

Dear Friends,

We are presenting this year’s first newsletter. The content team has grown, we have successfully executed a number of big, small projects. We are also planning to penetrate Indian markets. We are under a continuous process of defining growth; much credit goes to the leadership and of course our super energetic team. We conceive, nurture and eventually explore creativity. VEranDA was a result of that seed. Personally has been a wonderful experience to be a part of this team. The feedbacks we have received from clients attest how we have helped people building their businesses in with the help of new media. We have had our share of setbacks but never have we compromised on quality or commitment to our clients. As a result, we are among the top 15 service providers of the business platform we use. The newsletter is just an effort to improve our internal communication process and stay abreast of the developments in the team and the organization.

Palash -Vedainformatics Team

Piyush:
“Let me share some recent thoughts that have been going around in my head. Good Work is a great route to success in life, but for the ones who want big time success in life the only route is excellence. Excellence is primarily about the quality of what we create…and quality is a little about aptitude and a lot about attitude! Let us think about it and move in the direction of big time success in the times to come.”

Priya:
“We call it Veda
What is it though?
A place to dream
And strive to achieve more

Enthusiasm and ideas
Pats on the back
Swaying, drifting, then running
To find the right track

Lunchtime and tea cups
And conversations that last
Long after we’ve stopped talking
Of subjects too vast

Team meetings and agendas
And targets to meet
Contests and winnings
None accepting defeat

Humming, then singing
A song with no tune
Harsh to the ears?
No, we’re now immune.

Discussions and debates
Daily fights over a chair
Birthdays and ragging
Coding and software

An article badly written
Redo threats exchanged
Glances and feedback
But never estranged

The team lives in my heart
And I’m never alone
I come in every morning
Saying, “I’m home.”

Romila:
“I have put down a couple of thoughts. Working from home keeps me away from the goings on in the office. It’s been a year since the last edition of this newsletter was published. In this time, Veda Informatics has grown in leaps and bounds, not only adding new people and projects but also in new dimensions. Take the VEranDA for instance. This site allows Veda-ites a platform for creativity and free expression, and has become an instance success. Not only this, there now are meetings that not only facilitate planning regarding project delivery, but also is a place where people exchange knowledge. I believe that in the past year, Veda has grown in terms of the number of people, diversity of projects, skill base, knowledge and team spirit. For the next one year, I can only imagine that in terms of progress, even the sky isn’t the limit for Veda Informatics.”

Swapna:
“Top Five Things I learnt at Veda

Originality is God, Create it.

God is in the Details, Follow it.

Team Meetings Can Be Fun, Enjoy it.

Talent is the Best Resource, Tap it.

Food is the Best Fevicol @ Work, Share it.”

Ankit:
“Joining Veda has been a reincarnation. Content is just a small part of what I’ve learned here. People here have helped me discover myself. The freedom this place offers is amazing. I just hope that we, as an organization, keep touching lives.”

Vidya

Hello everyone!

Its been almost 5 months for me in Veda. And i can honestly say that i loved every minute of it (well ALMOST every minute). 🙂
I remember, i was a scared little soul on the first day i joined Veda, considering this is my first ACTUAL job. However, i feel that the time that i have spent here has molded me into a stronger person. I am also glad for having joined Veda because i got a chance to meet a lot of interesting characters (you know who you are).

Hoping to spend a lot more interesting and productive months with this crazy bunch.

P.S. The newsletter is very encouraging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Swapna

Hey Vidya,
Good to read your mail.
I totally love my interactions with every one at Veda and I think you are so lucky to have started your first job here. Being here has grown you and each one of us in meaningful ways, similar to the transformation that a caterpillar experiences in its next avatar as a beautiful butterfly, ready to dazzle, explore and find new purpose in the world even as it flits seeking nectarine knowledge and thirsting for more. That’s the vision, power and confidence that Veda endows each of us with.

This newsletter is a great endeavor to bring us closer to one another, respect what we are doing in different roles and stay together as one family. So, lets all vow to support and grow this endeavor on a regular basis. God bless.

Shalini

Veda has grown immensely from being a five member team to a full fledged
company. Veda is a dream come true…… With its amazing talent and a bunch
of people crazy for success and more success, Veda is zooming ahead to
become the leading company (Competitors BEWARE!!). In terms of planning and
achievements, we have crossed numerous hurdles, learnt amazing lessons and
come a long way from serving one client to countless ones (and making them
feel happy to associate with us!)
All I can say now is, Hail Veda!!

Two hemispheres on one wall, motivation being fanned on another. Whiteboards that refuse to stay white and the balcony of Old Trafford. That’s A-175.

Or is it?

Two pillars of the institution stand to my left. Another one sits to my right. It is to quote him, “It is not about the place, it is always about the people.”

Hi! I sit in the third row (from the entrance) and am more into what everybody else is doing. Two rows away, two great minds sit facing each other. They mean business. One of them frightens me. Oh! he is smiling. This implies we bagged a new project. Whoopee!

I see focused eyes, raised brows and thinking fingers. Suddenly, a mouth opens. “Ooh…Ah…You are my Sonia!” No marks for guessing who it was. Nobody got disturbed. Many of us have put on music as protection for our ears. Others have got used to noise. But, I wonder why the exhibition of his chest is as loud as his singing.

Somebody just kept the bowl full of sandwiches on the table. Though he lost his beloved harmonica last month, the musical notes of his jaws remain intact.

Hmmm, this one seems to be an interesting development. The number of bangles this madam used to wear has come down, from elbows to wrists.

What’s happening here? Ha Ha Ha…somebody’s leg got pulled on Outlook. And, I can already hear her replying back.

Oh no! This poor guy has been sneezing since morning. However, there is a more remarkable phenomenon occurring simultaneously. This lady sitting next to me utters “Bless you” every time he sneezes.

What unites all the people out here is a common language. They discover joy in tiny things. And this joy drives them to do big things. I guess this is how the world kisses one’s feet.
