At Litmus, I design website & lead the web team.
In this innings called life, whether it's one mark or one run, it matters.
As a little kid, art attracted me. I used to make paintings for several competitions and they won me prizes too. As I reached high school, I didn't know what design was - in technical terms, but I knew this is an art form I am inclined towards.
As my career progressed, I decided to become an architect and gave an entrance exam for it only to fail by falling short by 1 mark. I completed my graduation in another field and decided that I wanted to pursue MBA for my postgraduate degree. Gave an entrance again, and yet again, history repeated itself. 1 mark less and the MBA boat sailed away. Only for the Litmus boat to float in.
How did this space open up for me? When I saw those big computers for the first time and explored the world wide web, I liked that world, widely. I started learning and also applying for jobs. With experience, I reached the position of senior web designer in an IT company. I then started looking for a switch and one fine day, an HR agency called me up saying a company called Litmus Branding is looking for web designers and I came for an interview.
Interesting part? I was the first person to be hired for the web design team of Litmus. My core competence remained coding but with Litmus, I understood what web design really was and decided to grow in this field. Coming from a pure IT field, there were too many challenges, especially on the creative front while working at Litmus.
The platform, the clientele and the avenues were all different. I synced my UI/UX knowledge from previous jobs with the design knowledge I earned at Litmus and finally reached where I am today- UI/UX design lead. At Litmus, I am known to say 'NO'. But it's changing. I am changing it. I have delayed it, rather. Instead of saying no right in the first conversation, I take my time, do my research and then say no..or.. umm..yes, sometimes! :)
It's been 8 years at Litmus. And in this journey, my professional life has prospered. My personal life saw turmoil but I never let that come to the office. And I must say, I got my space when I most needed it. Without even asking for it. Litmus is my comfort zone, has been and will always be. It also makes me uncomfortable from time to time and I guess that is necessary for my growth.
Sure. Let's play cricket.

Recently, in IPL 2022, a rule was introduced which allows the captain of a team to call a batsman back from the ground if he has underperformed for 3-4 balls. Unfair.
