Through my L’Oreal Kajal clad eyes.

As a little girl I was given any doll, any dress. You name it; it was right before my eyes.

As I grew up I experienced all the luxuries, you name it and it was there.

As I matured I made sure that I continued with this luxurious stint, you name it, I had it.


Venue: L’Oreal Head Office, Mumbai

Date: 9th April 2014

I had attained an internship in my dream company. L’Oreal. Being an MBA student specialising in Sales and Marketing what more could one possibly ask for?  However as humans always tend to overanalyse, I too did the same. What if??

It all became clear in a flash, the minute I stepped into the head quarters. WOAH!

I had yet again landed at a place I always aspired for. A place where I knew I would blend well.

And hence I thank L’Oreal for choosing each and every intern and making sure that this experience will be enriching and valuable.

A month has passed and still I haven’t gotten over how we all are given our freedom to think, to work and to enjoy. L’Oreal really lives up to its name – People here are really worth it.

As I come across different people I realise why they are here. Every employee is suitable and fits into the organisation. It really feels he/she is the right brick that has been laid into the right wall.


Professionalism and a kick ass attitude lie in every person working here. Sitting in the professional products division on day 4, I wondered how an office could be vibrant with cheerful music playing on one side yet maintain its professionalism with people attending calls and giving instructions on the other.

How could people be so level headed when something doesn’t go right and manage to throw a b’day party for an employee who turned 31 that very day?  All this done in true spirits and in an environment I would describe in one word- POSITIVE.

Challenges are welcomed with open hands and results are applauded rightfully in L’Oreal. As I enter the office in the morning and leave in the evening, a sense of security engulfs me knowing that I am at the right place to improve and contribute. The feeling a little baby gets on seeing its mother upon waking up every morning.

Mummy- The Irreplaceable

Mummy,  Amma, Ma. Just hearing this magical word gives a sort of comfort felt by every being in this world. Words can never describe the role a mother plays in the life of a child right from its birth .
My mother is someone who has carved me and shaped me into an individual who I may not say perfect, but does have values that am proud I have inculcated.
My mother, a self- motivated woman has been the sole reason people define me as sorted, head strong , disciplined,  self-driven and above all a ‘good- natured’ human being who has a sense of ‘ justice’.
To this day if I aspire to do something, I owe it all to my mother’s encouragement. Heaven alone knows whether I will ever find such a selfless person anywhere in this world.
Mummy, today I am sitting here in Mumbai beating the humidity, the heat. I miss your touch, the comforting words you tell me, the way you worry about me (though I don’t want you to worry), the way you pamper me. I admit I have often felt it annoying when you aske…


Gambling amongst the chitter chatter, a small pause to catch her breath She rocked back and forth holding her little tummy, as though inside it were a child unfed.
Tears rolled down in all its glories to compliment the joke put forth How does one churn balooney into humour, with no one to provoke?
The unforced blush had a strong impact on complexions never seen These moments took their breath away, these moments didn't seem to demean
A déjà vu moment was felt around, the birth of a pleasant revisit Hungry they all became for more, cos no one wanted it’s exit.
The hero here deserved a pat on the back for this act of charm and wit. He gave the funny bone some good exercise, and made everyone’s ego quit!

Sometimes its nice to let yourself loose Laugh like never before.... Infact...its always nice.....

Trichy Police - “Redefining Peace”

According to the statistics for 2007, released by the National Criminal Records Bureau, Tamil Nadu had a total cognizable crime rate of 261.7 per one lakh population, while that of Chennai was 256.9.  The crime rate, defined as the number of crime trends as it balances incidence with growth in population.
Chennai’s crime rate ensures that the metro is ranked a creditable 24th among 35 major cities in the country while Coimbatore stands at the 22nd position and Madurai at the 30th.  However the situation in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru can send a chill of apprehension down anyone’s spine.  Delhi has earned the skeptical distinction of being the most unsafe metro in the country, topping the list of the number of crimes.
According to latest government statistics, Delhi accounted for 13.2 per cent of a total of 3,43,749 crimes reported in 35 mega cities across the country in 2009 followed by Bengaluru (9.4 %) and Mumbai (9.1%).

Now picturise the following situation: Chaos, confusion…
