I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to get a mail from an old colleague & friend. But what’s even better is that my friend, Alfred Joseph, sent me the mail to my office email id….He had joined the same company that I had worked for!
I met Alfred while waiting for the interview rounds at Escotel’s (now Idea) Kerala offices located in Ravipuram. We both join the company on the same day – January 5th, 2004 – and were part of Escotel/Idea’s customer care call center as CSAs. He would later move to the company’s Thrissur office and later move to corporate sales. He had some problem with Idea and would eventually leave to join Tata and then Airtel.
I met him by chance in Ravipuram just before I joined my current company and we talked for a few minutes. Since then I haven’t heard anything about him, except maybe for a scrap or two in Orkut. However, it’s been 2.6 years later and I was surprised to learn that he has joined my current company’s Coimbatore office in the same post as me – Assistant Manager, Training!
evil under the sun online Strange & small world. I spoke to him today and we exchanged notes on each other and as to how he ended up working for this company. Glad to hear that he got married and is now a dad. I hope to catch up with him sometime soon, maybe we can meet at a Training related workshop or something.
