My Alma Mater - JIVA

I have studied in different schools and college(s) but the one school which connected with my soul was "JIVA" formerly abbreviated as Jiva Institute of Vidya Academy , an joint initiative by Sh. Rishi Pal Chauhan , the Chairman of JIVA , Sh. Steven Rudolph , one of the well known American-Indian Educationist , Education Director of JIVA .

Although I studied there till 6th Standard , JIVA gave me the identity , helped me to mature , to grow rapidly . Since childhood , I was fascinated by Universe / Space , and it provided me every kind of resource to live my fascinating life . With a Mac Lab , ISBN Internet Leased Line all sponsored by Apple & Intel , our school was way ahead than any other school in India during that the decade1994-2004 .

A ICSE affiliated school , with experiential learning at its core , JIVA developed its own curriculum called ICOT - India's Curriculum of Tomorrow , which was launched by the Lt. Sh. Shammi Kapoor on a rainy night in 2002 .
Interestingly ICOT is followed by hundreds of schools in India , and Jiva's Computer Books are suggested ICT books in many schools .

And what reminded me of JIVA again ?

Memories are vivid and sense of attachment with JIVA is as lively as it used to be .

my first job & boss

When your startup doesn't work multiple times , you get convinced about joining a job .

I failed multiple times , perhaps due to lack of discipline and lesser number of follow ups with prospective clients . Eventually I suffered financial problem which needed immediate attention .

In startups , cash is king and there is this golden rule of startup , never run out of cash .

I rejected 4 jobs to finally joining a educational institution , education sector being my specialization .
it took me 15 days to understand the infrastructure and have Indepth knowledge of it ( IT infrastructure & Inventory , peers ( most of them ) , IT vision about which everyone was too confuse ) .

There I got my boss , first boss . A calm ,dedicated , perfectionist person . Writing a mail and then voraciously editing it , till the mail's content becomes
crisp being one of her many quality .
A boss, not so rude , down the earth , approachable earns respect of subordinates and in case , she got whole of it .
There might be times when during auditing your small mistake can embarrass the boss and then you realize that your responsibility towards your department , and that you have to take charge of things .
That's exactly I am going to do now .
