Since the 5th celebration of its inception in 2016, IBI has been a host to few beautiful moments, serving happiness in the sensor system to which we let our I-d card’s, sensed before entering 901, Pinnacle Building. Correct me people if, celebrating Oumar’s and Rimit’s farewell with a b-day celebration of Ashwini & Tony, did not give you a glance to life’s way of progressing i.e. You get a 1000 reasons to miss a person with joy and none with sorrow.
After that; the habit of rejoicing has become one that doesn’t seem to lower down and hopefully it would not, anytime soon. With a new morning blessed to each and every person in the world as 1/1/2017, one of the resolutions seemingly taken by IBI can be termed as making memories. As we encountered Neelam Mams b-day at the balcony, being an anomaly with a truth-dare game, flowers, lightings, IBI staff, (a huge amount of credit goes to Roshanara) with Happy Birthday hymn for her, giving the balcony decorous aesthetics and a reason to IBI for having the dinner that night, together. Cutting gateau one more time for Chirag Sirs b-day seemed making a tea little bit more sweet and tastier and we again met blithe. (He didn’t deny anyone, who wanted to apply cake on his face, unlike Mam 🙂
Spare me, you three as these section Perspectives was taken in a clandestine way, but that is the fun isn’t it?
I will start with Shibu sir, standing in the balcony, gifting ash to the floor and smoke to the air! After taking him through a ride of various topics! I asked him candid question,” What did he think before starting any new thing? If he too made plans for his journey ahead” (New year Resolutions) His answer was thought consuming. As I could interpret; he never hesitated to take risks in the past decisions. He laid stress in making sure while talking, the person never felt discouraging in a conversation he has! A head-start in the race is only gifted to the one’s, who dreamt of winning it! That’s the mantra…
Sharing the same idea with Jinal Sir took one step forward, the understanding which Shibu sir gave! With his calm and composed poise standing in the balcony he described, the start of anything from any daily habit to taking decisions while starting a business can be made ensuring there are almost negligible flaws. An equanimity in mind, with a strong faith in one’s thought could work as an energy when a person transforms one’s thought into actions, and that indeed as anyone could determine, is nothing but “success”. He also told me how he is successful in one of the resolutions he took from 1/1/2017, which could be thought-evoking for everyone. For the details of that resolution one might meet him on his desk and bother him with the questions, I am sure, he won’t mind that 😉
I did a telephonic survey with Neelam, as our family involved in calling does and I am thankful that though she was in amidst of something and she replied to both of my questions comfortably! When asked about inception she prefers to plan and react to the situation unlike both of our former dudes, but is also comfortable in going with the flow if the condition demands. For the new-year resolution she hopes of living a stress-free life. So sometimes turning the conditions and making them suitable as our plans and if conditions does not permit then going ahead with conditions without being nervous or just to say as Neelam did on phone “I am never nervous” is the logo she implements.
The Usual Suspects
It is a living thing misunderstood as non-living by all of us in IBI. It shares every feeling we have in our pumping organ, it gives us the priceless
Patience which every person needs while achieving his goal, it shares our talks when we speak, it shares our thoughts which are left unspoken, it gives us the idea, of what it feels to be at the “Pinnacle”, gives us a beauty which cannot be achieved without the height we see from it. It was the primary reason for me to accept the job at IBI, the Balcony.
From lunching on table with peers, smoking a quick cigarette to get more efficient and focused in the work, spending a flash or energy by going from your seat to it as your phone rings, sometimes a cup of hot coffee in the cold breeze, from me to Shibu Sir; it connects to one or the other person, sometimes it connects us to itself so that we don’t stay alone. It completes us IBI, our day isn’t completed without a visit to it. Freedom to jell with our pals, as Socrates said about it, “Thinking is Freedom” beauty lies in simplicity. Below I present adjectives used for The Balcony by the IBI family, starting with Hemali it is melody, relaxing for Robin, Alone for Khevana, good for Pooja, spacious for Amit, Smoking-zone for V.
