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.

Enter.....

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.

WORK HARD & PARTY HARDER!

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…

Why traffic in Namma Bengaluru is the best in the world!

Before all you Bengaluru residents kill me for the article heading, read on! I can’t assure you relief from traffic but seriously – I feel for you!




1. You needn’t go anywhere to learn how to be patient.  Half your life will be spent in traffic and that’s how you learn it! P.S :  On second thoughts you might even end up becoming A patient.



2. You might know all the languages in the world and may also know how to speak it in the most refined manner.  However the traffic in Bangalore will teach you something else. The language called- !@#$%*&^%! (censored for obvious reasons!)
3. Google maps is no longer your best friend.  You learn that the time taken is actually inversely proportional to what is shown.  Also you would prefer to take some other route that you discovered.



4. All your plans of saving to buy that latest phone, laptop, dslr have been dropped.  Now all you want is a helicopter! Where can one find one?!
5. You become buddies with the traffic cops. Honestly speaking these peopl…

A FOODIE HERE, A FOODIE THERE

A foodie is someone who goes beyond just putting food into his or her mouth.  Foodies don’t judge people based on their eating habits, simply because they are too concerned about their own food to even care.  Technically speaking a foodie is someone who breathes, relishes, feels, celebrates and then eats food.   That’s the difference between a foodie and someone who just likes to eat.  The same difference between someone who owns a DSLR  and someone who actually has a sense of photography.
  As for me, when I see food, I go eeeeeeee!
So the next time you think you’ve spotted a foodie and sincerely wondering which category he or she may fall in, this checklist might help.
·Menu cards are souvenirs for them.·Their eyes light up if someone recommends a dish they find worthy of having.·While others are ready to gulp down the first thing that appears on their plate, foodies  analyse the texture, preparation and presentation.·They feel compelled to share their knowledge about a certain dish e…
