Blog It Forward – Arindam Mondal

Hi,

I was blogged forwarded by The specified item was not found. & Vivek Singh Bhoj . Thanks a lot guys for this opportunity to participate in this initiative πŸ™‚ .

Its a great initiative and a good way to know the people here in SCN.

About me:

I am a SAP ABAP Consultant working in Wipro Technologies. My association with the world of SAP has been for the last 6 years and few months. Its been a great experience so far πŸ™‚ . I am from Kolkata or Calcutta, India. I was born and brought up in the city. I live here with my family and for last 6 years working for Wipro in their office based in Saltlake. Been a member of SCN from times when it was called SDN πŸ™‚ recently became more active in the space as I finally found a lot more of spare time to do so and the got hooked to it (maybe its gamefication syndrome ).

About my Country:

As it has already been told many times here πŸ™‚ I would not like to reiterate the same. But the country is absolutely incredible in its beauty, culture, people and the sheer diversity in many varied aspects. Its a subcontinent so as to say. I love it and I take pride that it is my motherland. I would recommend all to visit the country once in a lifetime they will be amazed by the experiences of it. Would think the below link by the tourism department sums up few experiences that’s just great

About my city:

Well Calcutta or Kolkata as it is called now is a large city that’s more that 300 years old. It was the capital of the erstwhile British India. It is situated on the banks of the Hoogly river, a dis-tributary of Ganges.

The city is vibrant. Its one of the 4 largest cities of India. Its a seat of culture and is also called the cultural capital of India. The weather here is very hot and humid in summer, a reasonably cool but moist monsoon and a very pleasant winter.

Over the last few centuries the city has been a major centre of education, trade and industry in the eastern part of India. Some legendary figures who are associated often with the city are Jagadish Chandra Bose, Satyandranath Bose, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Teresa, Satyajit Ray, Amartya Sen and Sourav Ganguly and many more. The state to which the city belongs is now known as West Bengal, a part of the region better known as Bengal. The most common language spoken locally here in Bengali. It is one of the 22 official languages of India πŸ™‚ .

The city is also famous for its bengali cuisine,  some of the most delicious food and sweets are attributed to the regions cuisine. To mention a few there are Rosogollas, Misti Doi.

The regions basic dishes comprises of fish. A meal of Fish Gravy and Rice is the most common here.

Questions I was asked:

1) What makes you smile/laugh?

Company of good old friends and a place to hangout and catch up on life. πŸ™‚ & sometimes as I am a film buff a nice Charlie Chaplin movie, where action speaks louder that words in its true sense.

2) Had you not been into software at all, where would you have been?

Well, this I had never given much of a thought but maybe professional photography or sports considering the love of cricket and Sachin, Sourav & Dravid. πŸ™‚

3) What is the craziest thing you would have done in your life?

Well not yet accomplished but intend to go skydiving with friends some day πŸ™‚

4) What is your best moment in life?

The best moment…nah I guess all the moments are unique and beautiful in its own way, So dont want to spoil others by naming a few as best πŸ™‚

5) How did you get into SAP technology?

Bit of a fate I guess got campus recruited and trained in SAP by my present company as they were ramping up the SAP team.

That’s all from my side thanks to all for reading my blog.I would like to blog it forward to the following people:

Thomas Zloch

Matthew Billingham

Susmitha Susan Thomas

Mohammed Yakub Shah

My Question are:

1) What are the best experiences that you had while being part of this community?

2) What are the hobbies or activities that you enjoy most?

Cheers,

Arindam

      Actually Tammy, I was going to comment but got distracted by <gasp> work.

      Arindam Mondal, welcome to the #BIF!  This initiative never fails to amaze me - and I love that I can 'meet' fellow SCN-ers (or let's rock it old school, SDN-ers!). 

      'Company of good old friends and a place to hangout and catch up on life.' - that is the key, I am sure, to a healthy happy life. 

      You did not ask me, but I will answer your questions:

      1) What are the best experiences that you had while being part of this community? - For me, the face-to-face events are the best  - where you meet the people you've corresponded/discussed/followed in real life.  But it starts online and then after an event, you can still keep up with them.

      2) What are the hobbies or activities that you enjoy most? - I do sail, but since I also  have two kids and a dog I would have to say that I enjoy the small bits of time when I can relax and read a good book.

      Arindam, very nice blog, good to learn more about you, and cheers for biffing it to me, however I have done the needful already πŸ˜‰

      Still happy to answer the questions:

      1) connecting with other SAP experts, meeting great people (many online, and some also "live"), participating in interesting discussions, troubleshooting my technical issues, helping to increase content quality, having fun along the way, and more...

      2) There isn't so much left nowadays...I keep enjoying my music collection (large), some yoga (beginner level), running/jogging (among the fastest in the slowest quartile), might want to get more into photography if time permits

      See you where it's hap'nin (ABAP Development for those who wonder)
