Department and Location:

Ad sales, DNA, Hyderabad

Role Description:

My role involves selling advertisement space for government, non-government, educational and other organizations.

Personal Mantra:

Try, Try, Till You Succeed.

My Day Starts with:

Every morning I walk for nearly 35 minutes as this helps my mind, body and soul to be fit and healthy. This keeps me energetic all through the day. Post the morning walk, I freshen up and perform namaz. Before heading to the office, I prefer to have a cup of hot tea and rotis.

My Typical Day in Office:

A typical day for me in office is checking emails, meeting ad agencies and potential clients and planning better strategies to expand the business revenue. My schedule is hectic but I love my work.

Lunch Hour Means:

As I'm usually on field, I do not carry my lunch box. I head to Udipi restaurants and prefer to have rice plate. I try my best to have my lunch on time as it keeps me away from indigestion but at times depending on the work, the timings vary.

My Passion:

I love my work and put all efforts in each and every task I undertake, however, mundane it may seem. I love to chase new clients until I crack a deal with them. Before joining DNA, I acted in many serials on Maa TV and Doordarshan.

I also love to maintain diary a and had written a story for the Hindi movie Dil Aa Gaya. I also love to cook food and usually give off to my wife on Sundays. I cook both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes but chicken is my favorite.

My Day ends with:

I usually reach home exhausted and so prefer to watch television. Followed by this, I evaluate the work I have done in the day and plan the schedule for the next day.
