5 ways festive times can be used for networking

Born in family of  a farmer, I have seen many festival days over a year. To me festival means some elders will be invited over meal, may be one, ten or hundreds. My basic understanding about festival was when many grand parents from neighborhood will come to our home, priest will come to  offer prayers to God and then meal will be served. Kids will be asked to maintain silence or go in the open and play with aunts.
Ah, those were the good old days. Those days taught me a lot specially discipline and respect to elders. Do not raise fights with other kids was also a norm.
Very soon during my teens I realized we have many festival over the years. So for me best festive season were from Christmas to New Year; vacations, no homework, study what you want, when you want and enjoy crispy foods throughout the day. Crispy sweet delicacies were made specially during winters.
I started living alone during teens and became part of Metro cities. In all big cities I observed Diwali is celebrated in very high spirit. Many people call it a way of networking. My childhood festival time is arriving soon, In a span of Ten Days we are going to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Though there are no leaves from work like old days but I am pretty sure to enjoy my fair share again and here is the beginning.

5 ways festive times can be used for networking

1. Show your cooking skills. Personally I believe, if you are human and live in a civilize society you know to cook at least one recipe. Invite your friends and friends of friends; cook, serve and share on the tunes of your favorite song.

2. Send E-Greeting Cards to everyone. SAVE TREES. If you not a social media person then too you may have thousands of email addresses. Greet All. Extending a hearty wish is not a sin.

3. Teach Neighborhood Kids. Chose a holiday, go to the neighborhood and teach kids some good habits. It could be cleanliness or save environment or may be some algebra if the St. APJ Abdul Kalam is your forefather. 

4. Go for charity. If you are fortunate enough you may find some NGO near you. Talk to them and join the work. Also you can count of temples, mosques and churches or Gurudwara etc.

5. Organize or Take Part in Events. During festive times many events happen in and around us. Also you can organize your own. If you are organizing and even post event schedules in your local city directory, so many people can join you. 

KEEP YOUR BUSINESS CARD READY TO HANDOVER TO NEWLY MADE FRIENDS.

Wishing you all readers Merry Christmas and Very-Very Happy New Year

Work hard but when

Work hardThose are two words I grew listening with As a young kid I used to think should I go forest and cut some tree branches, or like my Grandpa graze some cattle or like that uncle go farm. And if work hard is the key why not my dad go forest so we can buy and fly an airplane. Perhaps small children think like that and think much freely, don't know though but I was like that. Airplane dream never realized and when I joined a company I was told we want to be number 1. I didn't nodded even, just learnt CEO want to take company to No. 1 position, somewhere deep down I took that as a challenge. The inner me knows I have an opportunity to invest resources and grow. I am in habit of enjoying my task so no big deal, I know I can try my best to work my way, results are not in my hands. What I can do is called work. And being a physics student i know when we multiply force to distance we get work done. That work could be hilarious, why not, laughing gas is there a result of work done by …
