Chief Manager, Finance & Legal, Bangalore, DNA
I am the Head of Finance and Legal department of Bangalore branch. My responsibilities include handling all commercial negotiations, collections, expenditure booking, Issuance of legal/recovery notices, attending court proceedings on behalf of the company, liaison with Govt departmentsÂ and other legal compliances.
Karmanye Vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kada Chana i.e.Â
Work hard and sincerely and leave the remaining to the employer.
Every morning I follow water therapy i.e I start my day by drinking at least one liter of water to keep me fit. I play shuttle badminton for an hour everyday as it refreshes me and keeps me energetic throughout the day. Followed by these fitness mantras, I perform puja and then have a heavy breakfast before heading to office.
My typical day in office is very hectic as sometimes I need to rush to two different courts at two different locations in the city in addition to chasing sales team and circulation team for speeding up collection. Saturdays being a half day for banks, it is bit relaxing after noon time.
Depending on the work, my lunch timing varies. I usually carry home-made food prepared by my wife. Once a week, I give an off to her and head to a restaurant near the office along with my colleagues. As I'm pure vegetarian, I prefer to have South Indian or North Indian food.
I am very passionate about Carnatic classical music - both instrumental and vocal. I perform yoga in case I miss my shuttle badminton practice any day. I also meditate twice a day as it helps me in achieving conscious relaxation and reducing stress.
I usually reach home exhausted and therefore prefer to have some refreshments and shower. Followed by this, I perform puja, watch television and make sure that I go out for a stroll post dinner.
