Rediff.com, thank you very much

‎I hate good byes. Probably why I chose not to send out a customary mail thanking all my colleagues at rediff.com with whom I have worked 7 years. I don’t know where to begin and where to end and as I sent out my last story to rediff.com a while ago, a tear dropped from eye and that is when reality hit that a journey that I would cherish all my life has ended.
To be honest I have not been the easiest of colleagues to either work with or handle. My mood swings and my constant nature to complain has without a doubt angered many of my colleagues. I would like to apologise for that and hope we can bury all indifference under the carpet.
Rediff.com as an organisation would be my description of the world wide Web. An organisation that gives you the freedom to write on any subject. A great place I would say if you are serious about working. I thank rediff.com for the opportunity and all my readers and well wishers for all the support. 
A special word of thanks to my editors and of course the newsdesk which has put up with me and published my stories.
I don’t want to go on and on. I would like to stop here by saying all the best to the organisation which has taught me a lot and given me an opportunity to be who I am. Thank you very much and lots of love and best wishes- Vicky Nanjappa‎
