10 years !! Yes, it has been ten years when they came into existence. Time really passes very fast and to keep up the spirit of success, it requires real test of patience and hard work put together with umpteen creativity and out of the box thoughts. When the whole world talked about new startups coming into market with unique ideas and trying to make their mark straight away, there was one company which believed in doing things and letting their SUCCESS make the noise.
Yes! This is where I belong. This is “redBus”.
It has been rightly said “Kaun kehta hai aasman mein suraakh nahi ho sakti, ek patthar to tabiyat se Uchalo yaaro”. I can exclaim with full delight that I am proud to be a part of this family. Family, because we celebrate, we share, we are there for each other, Always… It has been just three months when I joined this journey, but all I have seen in these three months is the never ending pool of knowledge that every folk holds and the opportunity provided by the team to learn from this ocean of knowledge. This never ending spirit of learning motivates all of us there, to try out new things, come with a new solution to an existing solution, try, fail, learn, build again but stop not until the goal is reached.
We celebrate together, whether it is Gahesha Chaturthi or Navratri. Who needs a holiday when delicious snacks and Dandiya night awaits you in the office ! With all the ethnicity poured into our festivals, this family tries to keep the spirit of festivity alive no matter if you are away from your home..Miles away !! From celebrating Independence Day to having a grand evening called “Confluence” as a fest (will write about this in detail), they leave no stone unturned to keep the office environment happening and positive throughout the day.
Fun fridays always come with surprises around. With new events gearing up every friday, there is always a chance for everybody to showcase their talent apart from the regular office work. This also helps in refreshing the mind before office starts the very next week.
Also, there are a lot of other facilities that people get in house like health check ups, yoga sessions which also help in some way or the other.
I feel lucky to have joined redBus in its tenth year of existence, which is indeed a very grand achievement for any company. When redBus came to our college, it was offered as a dream option for us and I was selected. It is also a matter of fact that I got selected exactly a year and two days earlier than this day i.e 13th october,2015. So, this day is always very special to me and I hold a lot of memories of this day with my friends back there in college.
While unveiling Confluence 2016, it was an honor to listen to many stories related to number 10. Hearing to those was incredible. With redBus expanding its territory to foreign soils and strengthening its power in India , it might not be an exaggeration to say that this is just the beginning… zenith is where the goal lies…
Kudos and cheers to many more successful years of this never ending journey and this is truly what we mean when we say “We Love Travel” and “Lets Travel Places”!
Comments and reviews are welcomed. I will come up with more on Confluence in my coming posts.
