My Award – Blessed!

Yesterday, I received the award shipped from Microsoft. Happy to sharing the pictures of it

Thank you !!

Firstly, I would like to thank Microsoft for recognizing my efforts. Also a big thank you for entire MVP community for being so lovely and encouraging with me.

My gratitude to my family who has been always there to support, guide and making me what I am today!

Special thanks to my mentor, Singapore Community guru Sarbjit Singh Gill without you this feat is impossible! Paaji thanks for all your guidelines and walk through in every step.

Special thanks to all the great folks who have nominated me – Spirou X, Fahmy Werkz, Hamid J. Fard. Thanks for recognizing and encouraging me

Special thanks to Singapore SQL Server User Group team – Nagaraj Venkatesan, Khilitchandra Prajapati for all the support

Special thanks to Singapore Microsoft team – Koh Ming Hao, Fahmy Werkz, Prakash Sawant, Harminder Sethi, Lilliang Quek and all others for their tremendous support.

Special thanks to my mentor Vinod Kumar M who has been guiding, encouraging & supporting me. Honestly, I don’t have enough words to express thanks to him. He is a man of words and every word he says goes into action.

Balmukund Lakhani and Pinal Dave are two names which I would never miss to thank. Words of Pinal were always motivating and inspiring in every blog I write. Journey with Balmukund has been an association of 5 years when he first took my interview in Microsoft (unlikely that I couldn’t join Microsoft back then, else would have learnt a lot more in SQL Server under his guidelines).

KDSSG group, what a phenomenal support you all have been. Krishna Deepak your zeal and involvement and the way you encouraged my participation for Tech Unite 2015 was amazing. Thank you for being part of this achievement. Great response I receive from thousands of Knowledged Dedicated SQL Server Group (KDSSG) members is really motivating to do more community work.

Thanks to my managers at work Kay Hui and Manesh Subhash for the supporting and encouraging me to contribute more SQL community.

A big thank you to all my awesome blog viewer & Session attendees & Community members!

Hard work, Help, Knowledge sharing and passion still continues.. !!!

But, when I got a couple of emails regarding MVP agenda the next day, the excitement started boosting and Finally……

      Thanks you so much for your wishes!
