Today 2nd July 13 is my first day in my assignment and my third day in India. I got up early in the morning before going to the work about 5 hours. My new colleague Yolando Sutherland (GSK Jamaica), the second PULSE Volunteer in the same NGO. She phoned me to go to (KSWA) Khrwadi Social Welfare Association (our new NGO) in Mumbai, India.
We started our way to the KSWA (our NGO) we took Auto rickshaw (Vehicle with 3 wheels) is extensively used in Indian cities it took about 10 Minutes to go there, and then we dropped out from Auto rickshaw to look for KSWA location where we yesterday checked this place and have a look. But I think we lost our way to KWSA.
Suddenly I heard a sound called my Name SAMY, SAMY, and I looked for this sound and I said to myself. Is it true? This is actually my name and whose know me in India and called my Name. Then I looked behind me it was Mr. Lijo George’s Voice the heads HR at KSWA. It was first time to meet him all our communications with him were by Emails.
He guided us to the right direction to KSWA and let us rode with a man from KSWA. We received a very warm welcome left me a very good impression about the team. Mr. Lijo is going to take us for an orientation. And he introduced us to the colleagues.
