During my time working at KPMG I grew close to many of my colleagues. We had so much work after Sarbanes Oxley kicked in, that with the grueling travel schedule, we made the best of it and had as much fun as we could.
Out of that big family, there were a few individuals who became part of my inner circle.
I travelled throughout the U.S (especially the South), with my Indian brother, Rahul. We even visited Mississippi just after Katrina which was an experience that Rahul, Niti, and I will always remember.
It’s Uncle’s Birthday
Today is my good friend Rahul’s birthday (or as my 3 year old would day Uncle Rahul).
Over the years and especially after I left KPMG, Rahul has been their to support me and Lucy in many ways. His support has come from the heart and he would probably be very upset if I shared everything he has done for us. I am grateful that I can call him a friend and count on him when we have needed him the most.
More importantly, Rahul is one of the most caring individuals I know. If you want to bring a team together and make them work, Rahul is the individual you want leading your team. During my stay at KPMG, I was working with side by side or reporting to him.
This past May we visited Rahul and stayed with him on our first family trip outside of the Island.
My daughter Daniela connected with him to the point where she mentions him often and a few weeks ago she wanted me to get her on a plane so she could go visit Uncle Rahul in Chicago.
Rahul took care of us especially little Daniela living up to the term Uncle to another level and that means the world to me.
To my good friend and my Indian brother, I wish him a Happy Birthday and can’t wait to meet up with him again.
Thank you for being there.
