Journey from PULSE to PULSATE



Notes to remember:-

1). This is my blog and I don’t write with keyboard; all words comes straight from my heart. and as you might know heart doesn’t understand any languages. so, If you don’t understand my English, it means you have never ever been to India and you don’t know any great Indians yet:-)

2). After reading these blogs, If you get addicted and fall in love with the writer….please blame yourself:-)

What is Pulse??

Pulse is my heartbeat…straight from my heart..

(a rhythmical throbbing of the arteries as blood is propelled through them…)-This is what actually happening with me since last August when I first time heard about GSK Pulse programme. Immediately I was very much impressed and read almost all the posts of past volunteers, watched videos from GSK leaders and trust me I was fully connected to it straight from the heart..

The support from Sir Andrew towards the welfare of the community, focus on patients and making us an effective catalysts to be a change in the world. Hats off to GSK’s senior leaders, Pulse team, NGOs for the work they doing on the ground level which directly changing and improving the lives of many people.

Before I go deep into blogging, from bottom of my heart I would like to thank my Manager Barry Reed for allowing me to be part of this programme and my all dept colleagues who are going to take care of my work on my behalf as they wont get any replacement in my absence. I would like to say big big thank you to My mentors and all my support-Meg, Malcolm, Jan, Richard, Jayshree, Clara, Julie, Dave, Global Pulse team, Pulse crew UK orientation-2015, Project hope UK and last but not the least is my motivation and my all-time support-MY BEAUTIFUL FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
