Blog It Forward – Jansi Rani Murugesan


I am Jansi. I have been collaborating on SCN since 2010 and have been working on SAP since 2007. I also finally got biffed by  Annie Chan.

Initially I didnt realize the benefit and true motive behind BIF challenge, Since from beginning I saw only technical blogs in SCN, I felt little uncomfortable with these BIF blogs. Sometimes thought it is going to collapse SCN’s quality and standard and also avoid to read them.

But gradually my interest goes up, when I got to know some of my favorite SCN mentors,( Tammy Powlas, Marilyn Pratt) active contributors also participated. I cant restrict myself to avoid reading their views, specially the images which they added in each of their blogs given more curiosity to read. After reading those blogs I come to know about their interest apart from SAP. Truly it brings such closeness, creates empathy and provides powerful networking in a formal platform.

I am happy that I also got opportunity to share some of my insights with fun!! (I try 🙂 ).

Fun Fact About me

As soon as I finished my graduation, I started my career as a computer science teacher, where I taught to the children ages from 3 to 7. Since my father is the correspondent of that school, I got more freedom. I am so blessed to get a chance to be with the kids, I enjoyed almost 11 months with them.

The fun fact, I learnt history of computers only there, with those kids 🙂 . (Honestly In my entire graduation, none of the syllabus covered history of computer such a deep level).

In those periods I got a chance to read children story books, which deals with great learning, some of them touched my heart, some of them opened my eyes.

One of the notable book is “A Little Princess” by Frances Hodgon Burnett.


One of the favorite quotes from the book ::

“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that–warm things, kind things, sweet things–help and comfort and laughter–and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”

Ever since I read this book, seven year old Sara (the little princess) becomes my role model both in personal and professional career.

Fun Fact about my home town

I am from southern part of India, the place I born and brought up is Madurai. It is known best for the Meenakshi Amman Temple, it is called as “Temple city of India”.


          Meenakshi Amman Temple

It is also sometimes commented as “The city never sleeps” , For instance, if you landed up the city Late Night at 2:00 AM and wanted to take photocopy, you can find the shop with in 1 KM, Every half KM you might see hotels, some of them will be available throughout the night.


     central city view

It is also known for “City of Jasmine” .Jasmines have their best fragrance and shape only summer months though they are available throughout the year in my city of Madurai.



In my childhood, I get jasmine strings almost everyday from the vendor who door-delivers and love them!!

Questions from Annie


1.What do you enjoy most being a SAP professional?

Single word if I could answer your question is “Contentment”. I got the job which I loved to do.

It is very difficult to get that; most of them end up with the strategy “love what you do”. In that way I am blessed.

Since my childhood, I loved to learn new things, my brain long to learn new things every day; it is the food for my brain. As a SAP professional, I got filled up with new learning sources, new technology and always interesting things.  In eight years of my SAP career I never felt bore.

Some times SAP comes and knocked even my dream also, I happily welcome it with smile 🙂

2.What will you do if you get a day off from work?

It is good question. This is happened in my tenure with IBM (Still My manager didn’t know about this), I put sick leave and spent my entire shift hour in Library.


The Anna Centenary Library,Chennai,India. It is the largest library in South Asia . When I was in chennai I spent most of the saturdays here.If I get something truly interested to read, I take the chance again.


Apart from that, I like to travel, try to understand the culture and learn about architecture.



Life in Singapore.


And also I love to teach computer to children affected by autism. They are the special childern on Earth. 🙂

Lastly to continue the chain I choose Dolores Correa (who is most of the time only on blogs) and Prakhar Saxena, the questions which I would like to ask them,

1. If you were not in your current position, what/where would you be and why?

2. Name the person who affected you most in your career/ way of thinking and why?

3. If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?

Thanks once again to all who had initiated and all who are driving it successfully.

      Hi Jansi,

      Nice blog! Love your honesty in regards to your initial response on blogging and sick leave, genuinity draws people together. 🙂 Admire your selfless giving and caring to the children. I could also see many similarities between us, library, travel, culture and architecture. If I ever have the chance to meet you in Singapore, perhaps cafe at National Museum, Raffles hotel or National Library are potentially good spots 😀

      Hi Jansi,

      Thank you for a great BIF and for you sincere thoughts about the BIF challenge. Your realization about the Blog It Forward is exactly what we wanted to achieve and I believe we succeeded to.

      Next time I will see a random post by a BIFer, he will not be just a SAP topic expert but I will remember his spirit, dreams, history, special hobbies. I think this increases the empathy and the quality of our community.

      Thanks again for joining BIF,

      What a beautiful blog Jansi!

      I too love learning, reading, traveling and have a special affinity for autistic children. My uncle started the 'Association For Children At Risk'  which I support too and volunteered for in the past.

      Very nice and authentic contribution, Jansi! Always a pleasure to know more about the person behind the SCN/Mentor badges. I'm touched by the work you do for (autistic) children and I'm sure that it fully compensates for playing truant at IBM.

      Hope to be able to visit Singapore soon sometime, so that I may get the opportunity to meet this compassionate mentor in person!
