15th Feb ’09……I could never be as excited as I was this year……….IRON MAIDEN, my favorite heavy metal rock band was for the 3rd and last time performing in India. The previous two times that they performed in India, I missed it….Oh GOd! I was so damn excited as I was going to see them perform live…..Bruce Dickinson, lead vocalist with his mind blowing voice was there right in front of my eyes……… I was surrounded with gals and guys wearing IRON maiden tees including me……….WOW……….It was so thrilling…….. Blood was gushing in my body from my heart and I was already high(PS :- I don’t booze)……..

Sharp at 8.00 pm, the lights went off and the stage was lit, the screen opened, and there our man, Bruce opened the show with the song ‘ACES HIGH’……It was mind blowing……..All I could do is just scream my lungs out and jump and sing the song…..This was their world tour, and they named it “Somewhere back in time” form one of their album Somewhere in time….Then the other songs that they performed on were: 2 Minutes to Mid-night, Run to Hills, The Number of the Beast, Phantom of the Opera Hallowed be thy name and Fear of the Dark……..All in all it was an awesome experience, felt the exuberance …..

The only thing that I missed was the presence of my sister……..Anyway as a compensation, I offered to fly her down to Bangalore for any rock concert that takes place. Not 1 but two ……

That is of course me at the concert………val

Yes of course my network client (which means, they are not based out of Bangalore)¬† also came with one such idea….This client of mine is into stem cell…In a nut shell they preserve blood from umbilical cord and apparently use it to cure heart disease, diabetes and other ailments…….The wonderful event they have come up with is a half day antenatal¬† seminar obviously for pregnant women which is absolutely free giving them advice and solving their queries…..I guess its really innovative……..But not for me…………My whole idea is that it would still be ideal for them to have this event on Women’s day or mother’s day…but no…since they had to gain publicity and make use of Valentine’s Day, they came up with this stupid concept, and trust me I think it is really a stupid concept…….And unfortunately I have to coordinate this event……..

Imagine me……..I will among like so many pregnant women all around on Valentine’s Day………What a way for me to celebrate Valentine’ Day……..

1 year as a PR Professional……

Wow……I completed a year on the 14th of January 2009 as a PR Professional in my organization (Hanmer MS&L)….It was a great year………With scary, weird, senseless, great clients, it has been a amazing year with a lot of exposure, learning and of course honing my skills with every passing day…I think the best achievement that I made apart from all the great work I’ve done for my clients, is that I got promoted the very next month after completing my 6 months of probation……..Of course I am happy and think its an achievement, this being my first job……….

First 3 months were really crazy and I was just thrown amidst loads of work with no idea how to execute each task assigned…Of course all thanks to my immediate senior who helped me understand the nitty-gritty of the PR industry and how to service the clients……But the 5th month of my job took a 360 degree turn and today I am performing better that people who have spend like 3-4 years in this industry……Yeah it may sound like I am boasting about myself, but very seldom do we get a chance do that…Don’t we? From basic executable of sending the updates to the client, I have now risen up to working on planning and strategizing as to take my client’s brand ahead……Gives me a real great feel & a kick every day to come to work and discover that I am just not doing the monotonous stuff………I get this satisfaction when I see my boss just blindly trusting me and not interfering with my decision on the clients I handle…..Amongst the various clients that I handle, the only client I hate to work with is Discovery channel….Though the client is based out of Delhi, I take care of all the activities in Bangalore. Initially when I was assigned to work for Discovery, I was so happy because it is a big brand top work with and of course an experience that would help me grow….Yes all of that did happen , but the unwanted pressure that is created on the people working for Discovery channel is damn irritating and is insane……But yes at the end of the day it is my client, so have to perform……

Apart from work, my office is really full of lively, fun loving and great people, which makes the work atmosphere really splendid…..And of course few of my work buddies are Rock music fans, which makes it all the more fun while we play the music and work……

Well this journey has so far been great and I hope it continues to be the same!
