“Extentia is my home. I have been working here for 17 years and have seen the company grow from 80 employees to the scale it is now. It has helped me personally and professionally.

It has broadened my horizons in such a way that my children now reap the benefits. After being around Extentians, I realized the importance of education and made sure my children never have a limitation to learning.
Professionally, I refer to everyone as ‘Beta’ and ‘Beti’ and not as ‘Sir’ and ‘Mam’. This makes it personal and warm.

I never want to retire. What will I do without Extentia?! My husband never forced me to work, but I am determined to work so that I can help my husband financially which will, in turn, help my family and me grow faster.
I have been working on this floor since the past 5 years – they call me ‘The Guardian of the 4th Floor’.”

“I have a love for darkness. It’s commonly known as Nyctophilia – a preference for night over day. Being in my comfort zone, I find myself to be more productive, creative, and imaginative.
I am a Batman devotee since forever. Why? First of all, he is also a companion of the dark, a billionaire, wears a mask, and saves the world. I can’t seem to think of any reason for not worshiping him.
My favorite color? Anything and everything that is dark, isn’t that obvious?”

“As a child, my favorite fruit was mango. I would do anything for that fruit. Coming from an agricultural family, we had farmlands but for some reason, we never grew mango trees. Other farms close-by had abundant mango trees. So I thought what harm would it be just to have a couple from those trees. looks innocently
I became really good at aiming at the branch so that the mangoes would fall, but there was no way that I could pull this off on my own and that too without anyone noticing, hence I had a gang and I was the leader of that gang!
One day, my friend said ‘Itna achha hai toh archery kyon nahi karta’. And from that moment archery became my passion. I played State level from the 7th to 10th grade, until one day when my parents said that it was proving to be very expensive.
Now when I go back to my village, I never have to look at another farm because we eventually made acres of land into mango trees and now I sometimes see kids coming and stealing from us.”
When asked, did you not catch them? ‘Why would I, you never know which kid becomes an archer someday!’ smiles

‘Having a keen interest to travel the world, I chose Development Economics as my subject. Due to my firm belief in adding a personal touch to my dissertation, I want to live the experience. This is what brought me to India. I wanted to prove a theory which only India can prove – leapfrogging from agriculture to the services sector instead of manufacturing. It made me want to live every moment of my learning.

Would I want to come back to India? Well, with vibes like this, of course! I have left my heart behind in Hampi and some part of me yet wants to go to South India, so I ought to come back for sure grins.’

“In Pune, on seeing my handwriting, people get shocked and most of the times they do not believe that I can write so well. Who would believe that a guy from a small village named Gholeshwar, located in Sangli district is able to write, not only Hindi and Marathi but also English much better than most?!
The best compliment I have ever got in life is when my school teacher told me that my handwriting was better than hers. My handwriting has been a blessing from God, it has been like this since forever and now I see the same blessing in my elder son, carbon copy!
Everyone is gifted, everyone has a talent, they just need to find it.”
P.S. After seeing his picture, Kadam Rajaram Appaso instantly commented – ‘Please tell everyone to come visit me at EHP, trust me it's prettier when you see it in real. The picture doesn’t do justice at all."

“In 2003, my father got a heart attack. It was diagnosed that 90% of the veins around his heart were blocked and the only option was a bypass surgery.

We knew he would survive, well why wouldn’t he? In his entire life, he has undergone close to 10 major operations like amputation of one toe, cholecystectomy, as well as a paralysis stroke, to name a few.

After all this it’s easy to give up on life. If it was any other person, they would have given up much much before. But this is my dad we are talking about – his will is made of stone. So strong that even Thor can't break it. proud grin

We were a middle-class family and after these expenses, we were in the poor class bracket. My dad’s priority has always been taking care of the family first and then spending on operations. His sole belief is that if his family is by his side then he can overcome anything. He is invincible.

Well, the only reason I said yes to my wife is because she confessed in our early meetings that family comes before anything!”

“I got married 4 years ago. It was arranged, but the moment I saw her – I just knew. We have a loving son Siddhant, whom everyone calls Sai.
I feel being a good dad starts with presence and not presents. Thanks to the crèche facility at Extentia, my kid comes with me every day. He is close to my heart and close to my eyes – literally. Full of energy, mischief, innocence, he runs into my arms every evening beaming with happiness and talks about his day at the crèche. Also, let me just point out that it is me who tells him ‘Let’s go home now, maybe?’ and you very well know what his answer to that is.
Well, truthfully even I do not want to go anywhere, as the previous two companies that I worked for shut down as soon as I quit. So trust me I have stayed put for the last 7 years and will do so for many more to come. Don’t want to challenge a jinx! (winks)”

"As a kid, my parents gave me a very cosy childhood and fulfilled all my wishes. I was an average student in school, but I took a keen interest in playing cricket and badminton. During my 10th standard preparatory leave, I was sent to my sister’s place in Mumbai where she was pursuing her Masters course. It was my sister who guided me to make a monthly planner and study through charts and illustrations and every day after she got home from college, she would question me, on what I studied. Finally, after so many efforts by my family, I did come out with flying colors (smiles). This was the time, I recognized the importance of planning before beginning any work.
I went on to pursue Engineering away from home. I did get homesick as this was my first step out of my comfort zone and I missed home. But as it is said, friends are a home away from home, my friends helped me overcome that feeling and supported me to take on engineering with a smile. During my stay at the hostel, I valued the importance of minute things which I took for granted when I was at home like getting breakfast ready on the table, a clean room, clothes sorted and everything in place without doing anything myself. I started appreciating my mother’s care and was thankful for it – all this made me a stronger, more responsible and a more mature person. I comprehended, that after coming out of the comfort zone, anything might go wrong at any time and you need to stay alert and be responsible for your actions. In my final year of engineering, just before my exams my dad was unwell and I had to stay at home to manage things as well as study for my exam. It was my turn to be the pillar of strength to my parents.
However, I had many ups and downs in my college life and always learnt from my mistakes. These made me strong and taught me to be brave and face any situation, however tough it may be. I started enjoying the varied experiences I had, and learnt something from all of them. I also valued how important it was to challenge yourself and come out of your comfort zone to achieve a higher goal, each time. Now I believe, tough times don’t last, but tough people do!"

"I was not a class topper nor a brilliant student in school. My grades were average and I was one of the naughtiest students in the class. My teachers always had complaints about me and named me as ‘Headache’. Like other children of my age, I never imagined of becoming a doctor or an engineer or even thought about the future. Slowly I started to enjoy troubling people around me and it turned into a habit and hobby. My parents suffered a lot because of my behavior and never heard anything good about me all through my school days.

After high school, when it was time for me to choose my career path, my parents wanted me take up medicine or nursing. I am the kind of person who cannot withstand an injection. So I told my parents, that I wanted to take up engineering to avoid studying medicine. Engineering was more difficult than I anticipated as I had to actually study there. It was my choice, so I had to continue with it. I adjusted but with partners in crime, a naughty set of friends. Sometimes teachers made me sit on the first bench so that I don’t disturb the class from some other corner. I completed engineering and bagged a job in Quality Assurance which did not interest me at first. I slowly become an expert and started enjoying it. I realized that it completely suited my troublesome personality.

However, I managed to make a successful career in QA and was overwhelmed when my college invited me to take a motivational session for the current batch of students. I was ecstatic and felt overwhelmed about my journey from being a worst student to a successful professional. I could change to this extent because my teachers, lecturers and parents tolerated my naughtiness and gave me a chance each time I made a mistake. All the punishments they gave me turned out to be stepping stones to my success. I, now strongly believe, that a child should be taught to be a human being rather than being a top student. Children should be taught to love people without expectations, to be kind to the needy and be given the choice to take decisions that make them happy."
