Tomorrow is a celebratory day at the office. It’s the R&R function that’s held once every 6 months which is supposed to be quarterly but we are smart and we cust costs! (note the sarcasm) But it’s also an event that will mark our 2 years in business in the city of Cochin. It feels good to be part of something from inception till 2 years.
I enjoyed the very first such function that we had way back in November 2007, when I got up on stage with 3 other guys (one guitarist, one bassist & a keyboardist) and sang my heart out to 3 popular rock songs. That went down very well with the people and they had wanted us to get on it once in a while. But since the bassist and guitarist no longer work with us, the band is no more.
However, I am pleased to say, that the rock bug is well and truly active with my team members. My trainers, 2 girls & 4 guys, will get on stage tomorrow and sing We Will Rock You & bits of Another Brick In the Wall. A karoke version will be playing in the background as they sing as a group. The 2 girls and 2 of the guys know nothing about rock music and if you asked them about heavy metal…..they would probably look for the nearest peice of iron or aluminium!
But they are going at it with gusto and full of enthusiasm and it sounds good enough. I only sow the seeds, the plants grow by themselves!
