MartJack hosts GeraldOnline November 21, 2009

Filed under: Personal — Mukul @ 10:17 am

I am so happy today. It is difficult to contain my excitement or express it with several jumps in the air or even a few high fives are not enough. MartJack has acquired an esteemed client for itself.

MartJack is an e-commerce product (from Reasoning, my employers) that I am associated with since its conception. It is such a proud moment to see this promising enabler platform (which was just an idea couple of years ago) turn into this full-fledged retail solution. What a journey has this been:starting with hosting of a small store at Koti, Hyderabad to hosting GeraldOnline.

Gerald Online is UK’s largest online e-store and MartJack is hosting this UK giant on its enabler platform. MartJack has grown in code line by line and with features one at a time. I really want to congratulate the team that materialised the idea “MartJack” into reality.

So to all ya fellas, who dreamt of code at nights or sacrificed their holidays or came up with brilliant bug solutions or testers or implementation experts or any one who persevered. Congratulations to one and all!!


Celebrating Sisterhood November 20, 2009

There is no greater fun than having a sister while you are growing up. I am so thankful to God, for blessing me with one. The small fights and not so small fights, choosing the dresses, choosing the colors, sharing and not sharing the things between them, fighting over who sleeps on what side of bed, who makes the tea, who prepares Maggi, who cleans up and who serves, what movies to watch, and discuss the movies when other one does not understand it. It’s a life of discussing friends, fighting over friends, discussing the hostel fights and fighting over fights, having diverse interests and yet accommodating them in same room, on same walls. Having a sister is posting a sports person poster next to some singing sensation poster (when you are not so fond of him/her).

Movies are so much fun with my sister around. Crimson Red, Forrest Gump, Cast Away, K-10, the widow maker, Titanic, Time under fire, Hera Pheri and the list is never-ending. Each of these movies is memorable because we watched it together. Each movie has a story of our own to go with it.

Sister becomes your close confidante and agony aunt (to name a few roles that my sister assumed) and you never even realize when she slipped into that position. 

It’s a wonderful journey from tending to a toddler sister to see her as a working woman. I miss my sister.

This post is for all the sisters and the childhood they shared together.

After deliberating for last few days, I finally have a blog. I may put in my favourite recipes, or lash out at a casual dismissal of Indian cricketer or I dont know what else.
