I started working in September 2006, [Holy!!! That’s almost 3 years, which gave me the epiphany that I am getting old... :(]. After my first project, I was asked to move out to another project by our resource manager. On 24th May 2007, I was supposed to meet the new project manager, so as to have a brief overview about the new project. From what I heard from the project manager, I understood that it was the kind of work which I never wanted to do in my life. So right after the meeting, I went and met the resource manager and told (read pleaded) her to get me out of the situation. I spoke to her for almost two hours but in vain. She kept giving me the reason that I am not experienced enough to get a project of my choice. Finally, she told me something which I can never ever forget in my life, "Either you are going to work in that project or you are out of Wipro. Choice is yours".
That day I went back from office with a heavy heart and a numb mind. I wondered why a person is forced to do something which he dislikes. All I could do was pray about it. The next day was even more terrible. With the frequent calls from the so called Resource manager, I finally decided to give in. I agreed to join the new project. I thought of joining the new project and then quitting from the company itself.
But a miracle happened the next Monday, there was a new requirement in my previous project and they wanted me to be there. When I call it a miracle, understand the fact that there was no requirement at all in the project till that Friday. Monday morning, it suddenly came out of the blue. When my manager called up the resource manger to tell her that he wants to retain me, she said that she will find another resource for him and let him move to the other project. But miracle happened again, Lord worked through the technical manager (who dint even knew me) in my account. He spoke and solved the issue stating that, my resume has already been sent to the client for interview. Just the pure grace of the Lord almighty.
“In his time, he makes all things beautiful“
P.S: As a matter of fact, the lady resource manager is out of Wipro now and I am still working in the same account, in the same project till date. Amazing grace!!!
