Back to Abu Dhabi

Back to Abu Dhabi

The second part of the agile Varanasi has started very early: 5:30 AM. Before we left the hotel I did my check out and told the staff to bring my luggage at 7:30 am so that I don’t lose any time for the airport. Just in case.. This is India.   The boat trip was amazing. It was still the same Varanasi, same Ganga Ma, but a totally different feelings. Morning praying was more modest and nicer. There was only…

Agile Varanasi

Agile Varanasi

We start the day very early but wasted around 1:30 hours waiting for our driver to Varanasi. The disappointment continued with the size of the car and also the driver Sanjey, seemed not knowing the way to Varanasi. Still, we said it is an experience too 🙂 I followed our location on the map until he finds the highway and finally we were on our way to Varanasi, the oldest living city. The highway was pretty nice comparing to the…

Last 4 in Kanpur

Last 4 in Kanpur

In the morning 9 of us has left Kanpur. It was very emotional, like leaving friends that we have known for years. We started the day with the final swimming meeting, and then at breakfast, Landmark hotel did a very nice surprise: a chocolate cake with a “See you soon” message. We used the last 30 mins to go through the excel file and the Cognitive and Analytics documents and asset factory with Stephen. Then I rushed to prepare some…

The last day with the whole team

The last day with the whole team

and yes, we came to the last day.. We were both very proud because of the achievement, but though we have loved ones back in our countries, it is also a bit sad that we were like a family here.. In the morning we planned to go to Shramik Bharti and take a cake with us to celebrate and say a “thank you” again for everything. We ordered the cake, asked them to write “Friends Forever” both in english and…

It…

Almost there

Almost there

The last two days passed working on the presentation content, document creation, excel “system”, video, pictures, IBM deliverables, a quick training on the excel to the client… with the same attention from each of us, line by line, word by word, chart by chart we check what we will deliver to Shramik Bharti. It’s because we appreciate what they have achieve until now, and being a very small part of their improvement is a indescribable. I don’t want to be…

Hope in India

Hope in India

The population in India is soo much, 1.3 billion people, and no control program like China is being implemented. (I am not saying that it is good, just giving an information to do a comparison between these two big populated countries.) There is a big poverty, the education ratio is so low, the women are treated badly (rapes, child marriage, discrimination, molestation, sexual harassment…). Maybe it is 5-10% of the population but when you do the calculation it is a…

Is it the end of 3rd week ?

The third week has ended too.. Time flies..  Today started with yoga again 🧘🏻‍♀️🧘🏻‍♂️ And after working on our presentation, we went to our client to review the content of it. We wanted to go through it to check if there is any wrong understanding, if they are happy about the deliverables etc. Like Angela’s definition, the deck was a taste of what we are going to share with them on Wednesday. Cause we removed the best parts of the…

Branding, IT, Logo, Community Service, Food..

I think these are the key words for today. When we went to the client side, the first topic we discussed was the community service day we should do in the CSC project. We already agreed to do this in Shramik Bharti in first week but we could not agree on the details of the full day agenda until today. Mr. Rakesh has come up with the details today that we will have a session with women to talk about…
