Day 8 – At Chennai on a training

Start of the week Week started well. The training was quite interesting, as it related to credit operations of a bank. I guess, it is a common tendency to feel comfortable in ‘known territory’. We had an interesting Role-playing exercise in the training. Trainings are great when they have such interactive activities and games inbuilt.… Continue reading Day 8 – At Chennai on a training

Day 6 and 7 – At Chennai on a training

A badly needed weekend Nothing new in that though. Generally all weekends are badly needed. After an intense training for five days, it was a great relief. In the morning, we had decided to go for a ‘brunch’ at Murugan Idli shop (at GM Chetty Road). We reached there at about 11:30 – really hungry… Continue reading Day 6 and 7 – At Chennai on a training

Day 5 – At Chennai on a training

Auto-rickshaw chronicle continues We have discovered a new model for hiring auto-rickshaws. That is, bulk booking of auto rickshaws. As we have a large group, we negotiate a combined price for 3-4 auto-rickshaws e.g. 100Rs. for 3 auto rickshaws instead of 40 each. One more thing we noticed was that irrespective of the actual practice,… Continue reading Day 5 – At Chennai on a training

Filter coffee is now a part of my staple diet 🙂 One more realization today: Not to make assumptions too fast…… Continue reading Day 3 – At Chennai on a training

Day 2 – At Chennai on a training

We had a nice filling breakfast at the guest house. Training was Ok types. Not so much boring. And there… Continue reading Day 2 – At Chennai on a training

Day 1 – At Chennai on a training

I am at Chennai for 6-week office training. I thought I would try blogging something about it everyday. I am not sure whether this spirit would last even for a day more, but still, at least for Day 1, I am all motivated to pen down things. Start of the day Day started at an… Continue reading Day 1 – At Chennai on a training
