“I have had a lot of life-changing experiences in the forest, but this one had an everlasting impact. I was working for a short period in November 2015 as a naturalist in a forest lodge. As a guide to the guests who came to the hotel, I'd take them for safaris and display my knowledge and zest for photography.
Although everything sounded so swell, on the grass root level – it wasn't an easy job. In addition to a lot of hard work and composure that it required, I was unfortunate to be working under terrible people, who gave me a hard time for their own reasons. Some days, I’d question why I was there? Being a boy from a cosmopolitan city – with everything served to me on a platter, it was difficult for me to adjust in times when we were not treated well. One such morning, I woke up and had a spat with the owner – as a result of which I wasn’t permitted to go on safaris leading to a whole lot of frustration. It was 6 in the morning and I got out of my room and sat there evaluating my life. Contemplating whether I was in the right place or not, I pulled up a chair, sat in the veranda overlooking the forest with a hot cup of tea in my hand, a head full of thoughts, and my favorite band ‘explosions in the sky’ strumming their melody through my earphones. Listening to an instrumental track, in the middle of the wilderness, had a charm of its own. Those six minutes seemed to last forever.
The sun started rising, the rays gently hit the forest floor, and the chirping of the birds began to overpower my music. I closed my eyes and laid back. First, an alarm call. Second, the roar of a tiger. Taking all of it in, I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I haven't been more at peace, my whole life. We, humans, consider ourselves far more superior than other living things. In my 11 years of forest experience, I have learned that the forest can make you feel so much, yet so small. I see myself traveling a few miles into the green, even 20 years from now. I feel everybody needs their six minutes of serenity!”

We went and voted in the #PMCElections for a better #Pune today. And then we did this! :)
How was your voting experience? Was it smooth? Didn’t it feel great when done?

On the Extentia Blog: 'Engineer the Experience' by Maria Agata Sierpinski -- take a look! :)
'By bringing the Design Studio together with management, developers, and QA teams, we created a forum where both sides could meet each others' worlds. Rather than aspiring to make designers out of project managers and developers, the focus was on user experience – how do we with combined forces deliver well-designed technology to our end users?'
If you attended, what was the experience like?

“They say that only thing we have to fear is fear itself – in some way my father followed this throughout his life and taught me to do the same. Brought up in a small village in Rajasthan, my life and those of other girls like me were in the hands of social customs. Time had done little to change the old ways, and girls were married off before they could experience the world on their own terms.
My father had to struggle a great deal to educate himself and maybe that is why he understands the value of knowledge. He fought the norms of our village to ensure his children never had to face the same difficulties. I can only imagine the opposition he would have faced as he encouraged me to pursue my studies; everyone from jealous neighbors to disapproving elders who blocked his way. He even risked being completely cast out by the community. However, nothing could deter him.
I feel that in a way my achievements are the story of his vision and struggle. Off I went to Kota to put my will power to the test, and it didn’t fail me! I was the first girl in my village to become an engineer. I sometimes think my story is a story of firsts, not for myself, but for all the girls in my village who were not afraid to dream.
If you have the courage and the commitment, then life has no choice but to carry you forward. I began teaching as a lecturer in Mumbai, but my true passions lay in the IT industry. Here too, I had my father’s support and look at me now; I am working and settled in a beautiful city like Pune!
You may be wondering what happened to all the other girls in my village, were they left behind? Not at all! After people heard my story, they encouraged their own daughters to study and make a life for themselves. One day, I would like to return to my village and open a school. You just need a crack to weaken the glass ceiling, and I am glad that our effort has set a whole community of women free!”

We had Extentia’s annual Forum at Symbiosis Centre for Management Studies, Pune yesterday! At the event, we presented events and achievements over the past year. Several Extentians were also honored for their work and commitment. It was an evening to remember – fun videos, 1-5-10-15-100-year Extentians talking to us about their experiences, and a before/after pictorial walk through memory lane! :)

How was #ExtentiaForum17 for you? What did you like the most about Thursday night?
