For those of you who know me just as the head behind Kreative Korner, I have some facts to share. 

I am a Software Engineer by profession, started my career as a Software Tester with the financial vertical of Oracle Inc., resigned, got married and moved to USA. The 1.5 year stay in USA was my period of unemployment as an engineer. This is also the time when Kreative Korner was born and nurtured. The unemployment days were both refreshing and frustrating**. 

Once you start working, sitting at home all day is not easy and this was exactly what I was doing. Only two months into marriage and being dependent on my partner for every little thing did not come along easily. Some of my married friends said that I'd soon get used to it but the suggestion did not help much. No Driving Licence made situation worse. It was a state of partial house arrest. Then came the day when Hubs and I stopped at Michaels. It was a paradise for an art-and-craft-lover like me. We came home with some art supplies and *tadaaa* a new journey started. Paints-laptop-Kreative Korner-and-me... It was like a dream but the professional life was being missed for sure. 

When I moved to India, the first thing to do on my list was to get a job! It was one of those lucky times when you actually get what you want. Even before I could unpack my bags, even before we could zero-in on the house to live in, even before I could get all my belongings under one roof... I had the offer letter in hand!

After 4 rounds of interviews and days of anxious wait, I finally joined Aricent Group last month!

Off to work - Day 1

My work might not give me a lot of time to spare but maintaining a balance is what I am aiming at. To be present here, I need to overcome the work-pull, for which I need your help! Please keep pouring in your love in the form of your messages, comments and emails. I assure you, I'll stay around.


**The good and the bad was interleaved. 
I was happy to be at home, doing the stuff that I loved but missed going to office.
I was happy that I had no office to attend and I could relax but the all-fun schedule was losing it's charm.
Yes, it IS complicated.
