HCL Tweetup for Employees!

Thanks to the efforts of @Bokul and @Kkhush , HCL is probably the first Indian company to have a tweeetup exclusively for its employees :)

And when the cumulative pestering of all employees got much, what else befitting reply but this from @VineetNayar himself


And knowing Vineet Nayar and the spirit of a true HCLite, I can assure you it will be a riot!

5 things that make this  1st ever #HCLtweetup special -

1. Done for the first time by any Indian IT Company (any company?) for its employees
2. First time ever, a CEO (especially Indian) would have endorsed it on Twitter and accepted to come :)
3. Happening at beautiful KNMA , befitting the entire setting a lot more :)
4. When employees will not talk business but get to meet each other as just "people"
5. Where employees will get to ask questions to the top leader (s) of a company via completely casual setting!. Imagine this 10 years back? - hahaha!

If you are an HCLite - you should register right now 

See you guys!
PS: Official hashtag of the tweetup is #HCLTweetup

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.
