After years of thinking to myself and telling the world that I would never have a job or work for someone else, the past week saw me getting on board a corporate media house as an employee. As hard as it is for me to accept the fact and the sudden change in my routine, there is no denying that there sure are little joys that one gets sans anticipation from one’s first job. It is a time when you are exposed to something completely new. It is a time when you have actually no clue of what to expect and of how things work. A new phase of life begins and getting to know the nitty-gritty of it is actually fun.
From the day I forwarded my CV in lieu of the opening to the day I got my offer letter, an entire month passed. Out of the 30, the last 5 days were the most difficult- the wait for the offer letter on mail after everything has been finalised verbally. Early one morning, I finally received the HR’s call asking me for a revert on the Offer letter that now waited in my inbox. There was no way I was going to sit quiet and facebook saw my excitement clearly. Of course I was shouting it out. My family members reminded me of things like 'There was a day when you couldn't even hold a cold drink bottle', 'I used to scare you with the speakers', and so on. Why did everyone feel that I had suddenly grown up?

The first was last September when my film won its first award at a festival.
