Freebird…

23 Oct

If I leave here tomorrow Would you still remember me? For I must be travelling on, now, ‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see. But, if I stayed here with you, girl, Things just couldn’t be the same. ‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now, And this bird you can not change. Lord knows, I can’t change. Bye, bye, its been a sweet love. Though this feeling I can’t change. But please don’t take it badly, ‘Cause Lord knows I’m to blame. But, if I stayed here with you girl, Things just couldn’t be the same. Cause I’m as free as a bird now, And this bird you’ll never change. And this bird you can not change. Lord knows, I can’t change. Lord help me, I can’t change. – Freebird (Lynyrd Skynyrd).


October 23th, 2009 marks the last day of my professional engagement with SAP Labs India Ltd. It’s been a little less than 4 years of a very fruitful tenure here at the lush Labs campus in Bangalore. I learnt all that I could have ever have about enterprise software, manufacturing and shop-floor integration and that too from possibly the largest enterprise software vendor in the world : SAP, a company with a heart 🙂 I got introduced to the SAP Community Network and a lot of awesome friends some of whom even fall into, what my wife Haimanti and I refer to as our extended family. Add on top of that an awesome team and awesome colleagues and my current manager of one year, with whom I wish I could have spent my entire professional career. He’s just that good. Period.

I was a fledgling and mother SAP molded me into what I am now, and now I am ready to spread my wings and soar the blue skies.

October 26th, 2009 I join IBM India as an Advisory Systems Analyst. I look forward towards more responsibility to shoulder, more innovation and a zeal towards solving real life customer pain-points. It’s quite a change from the generally peaceful life one leads at a product based organisation to the daily hustle and bustle of a customer projects driven service industry and I am looking forward to take up that challenge. I would also be joining my very good friend (he’s like an elder brother to me), college senior, ex-SAP colleague and Co-Author Dipankar Saha who is a wonderful person to work with and a great team in Kolkata whom I personally know to be a delightful and enthusiastic bunch. But due to some personal constraints I’ll be operating out of Bangalore.

So thank you everyone, for being a part of my life and my professional journey and for wonderful love and support that I have received from you guys. I hope and I know that you guys will be there for me whenever I reach out to you.

Wish me luck…

  • Congrats Bhai…

    Wish you the very best in your future endeavors. Let me know how things goes with IBM. It was one of my dreams to get into real live customer facing roles, but somehow that never happened. Which is the reason I went back to being a developer, but in C++(my fav language) 😛

    Keep in touch, and lets keep the gadetry and games discussions going on forever.. 🙂
