#RainbowTick

Today, feeling proud to be working for a company to get very first Rainbow Tick among General Insurers in the country.

The Rainbow Tick is a programme designed to ensure an organisation is a safe, welcoming and inclusive place for people of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity.

The certification was awarded to IAG at a ceremony this morning by Rainbow Tick Programme Director Michael Stevens.

And there was org-wide celebration.

#Journey #Life

This month of this year, I will be completing living equal number of years outside my hometown.

That brings back so many memories and fills up lot of confidence.

Just like another teen, after completing 12th grade, I had moved out to pursue grad, then for first job and so on. Since then, I have lived at 9 cities.

By our definition of living at a place:

You should have spent at least 3 months living at a place, spending good amount of time in knowing it well.

Wellington fell short of 30 days whereas Sydney and many others missed by 90 days or more.

Starting from my small hometown, here is the list –

  • Hoshiarpur
  • Patiala
  • Delhi
  • Bangalore
  • Mysore
  • Gurgaon
  • Chandigarh
  • San Jose
  • Auckland

Cannot guess how many more are scheduled during this journey called life.

No wonder, some of my favourite songs are based on journey and nostalgia –

Aao Milo Chalo

.

आओ मिलो चलो

.

.

Musafir hoon yaaro

.

मुसाफ़िर हूं यारो

.

.

Yoon hi chala chal rahi, kitni haseen hai ye dunia

.

यूं ही चला चल राही, कितनी हसीन है ये दुनिया

.

.

Jadon ambron barasea paani, mitti di khushboo aayi

.

ਜਦੋਂ ਅੰਬਰੋਂ ਬਰਸਿਆ ਪਾਣੀ, ਮਿੱਟੀ ਦੀ ਖ਼ੁਸ਼ਬੂ ਆਈ

.

.

Safar ka hi tha main, safar ka raha

.

सफर का ही था मैं, सफर का रहा

.

Before I moved out for first time, I still remember one wise man advising me to travel the world and not to stick to one place for life. I sure have made at least that person feel proud!🌏🎉🎊🌎🛅🛩️
