Parting is such Sweet Sorrow

Sweet, so would I,
Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow. [Exit above]
Romeo And Juliet Act 2, scene 2, 176–185

And thus wrote Shakespeare.

This quote came to my mind when Padmaja Sonawane came to me today and sought my blessings for the future life that she is going into. A life of wedded bliss, which naturally will come with mixed aprehensions.

Padmaja story is one of the many typical ones at Vital Link Outsourcing. Padmaja joined us in the first batch of Data Entry Associates whom we recruited when we first set shop in Pune. That was 9 years ago as she reminded me.

Over the years Padmaja rose from the entry level position to head the Process team of girls in the morning shift. Heading the most productive group, she ensured that over close to a decade our deliveries to our clients were faultless and on time. The processes that she handled includes some of the leading corporate names of USA.

It is dedicated employees such as Padmaja that keep the core of thousands of organisations humming smoothly. They are the unsung heroes of the battle trenches while the business leader get to take all the credit :-)

Padmaja would have continued merrily into the future but for the fact that the husband she chose works in Mumbai. She will thus have no choice but to leave us. And with mixed emotions on both sides.

Best captured by the bard in the above quote.

  1. Parting is not as sweet as sorrow this time, Padmaja was one of the strongest pillar of BPO provider vital link, Really it's hard to loss, cause of the worth.
