“Do not worry too much about the result. This will reduce the pressure of achieving something which is not in your control and concentrate more on the work that you do!” is the success mantra of Sandesh K Ramakrishna, who is an avid sportsperson. He craves home food, and believes in hard work and commitment.
Sandesh joined our Litehouse team 15 months ago as one of our Senior Developers. Before entering the world of Aditi, Sandesh had a career with Infosys, Bangalore.
8 awards in a year in various categories of sports: Table Tennis, Football, Carrom and Cricket. How did you do that?
I picked up sports by just observing it on television. I guess it came naturally to me. I love taking chances. But no one becomes a champion overnight. There is a lot of practice involved, and sheer passion. And when I play, I play to win!
What made you join Aditi?
The learning curve for me had come to a standstill in my previous company. I really didn’t enjoy what I was doing. It more seemed like I was forcefully adapting to situations. Besides, I was more interested in pursuing my career in Mobility.
How did you find coming through the recruitment process?
Awesome! I realized that the Job Description doesn’t matter much, what you really do inside the company at the end of the day matters. I was tested really well on the technical front. I liked the discussion with Vinit Chauhan from Litehouse who took one of my tech rounds.
What do you like most about working at Aditi?
The culture here is wonderful. I understand that if the organization gives time to the employee, the employee will give the time back and will be more loyal to the organization
What is it that drives you to achieve success and be so consistent?
It’s all about passion. I have a passion to play and a passion to work. The major task here is time management, which I am still working on. Success is something which I do not aim for. You apply your skill set and give it your best shot. Do not worry too much on the result. This will reduce the pressure of achieving something which is not in your control and concentrate more on the work you do. The same mantra applies for consistency too.
How do you manage to balance both sports and work?
The fact is that, I do not practice for any sport. I make time to play on weekends with my friends, so there is no major clash between work and sports. It becomes challenging when there is a tournament at Aditi, but then I compensate that by working late hours.
