After multiple iterative changes from the onsite team, finally, the document was closed at my end and I have shared the same for further enhancements. However, all my hopes of the opportunity getting closed were shattered in the very next day from a long mail from the onsite team and a new team member being looped to the thread. When I reviewed the new task shared by the onsite team, I felt that all the effort that I put into the last one week went in vain and all-new solution slides had to be worked from scratch. I was completely furious and wanted to discuss this issue with my manager and as usual, he was acting as if all the slides will be reused for the new client requirements. Unfortunately, only I knew that all the slides will be irrelevant for the new client requirements and now fresh efforts had to be made to gather information from other teams. When the recurring daily call was set up to discuss the progress about the new requirements shared by the client, I was raising concerns about redundant work, and my manager jumped in out of nowhere and closed the discussion abruptly.

So, I took a long vacation to be with my family and unfortunately COVID-19 pandemic has taken over the entire country, so our entire team was requested to connect from home until further notice. Since I was on vacation, I had no further communication from my office and with much anxiety contacted my teammate to check about the things going on. To my surprise, he was affirmative that the team was busy with work from Client Partners and nothing had to be worried about job security or salary reduction. The conversation with my colleague was consoling and assured me of my job security. In the meantime, I had the most relaxing time with my family and after a long time, I felt there are many things to note other than being held up in virtual reality. The reason for not updating any posts for over a long time was only because I was spending some quality time with my family and this really helped in getting rejuvenated. At one point in time, I really felt that these times should be carried on forever and spending really good time with my family. However, this did not last forever, and I had to connect from home shortly after vacation, to know how I was screwed up, please feel free to check out the posts in “G R Team Sites”
