At the time of answering this questionnaire, it’s a grand total of 2013 days. And this is inclusive of weekends and holidays. Incidentally, I joined in 2013 as well! 😉

2) What do you do at Crayon?

So far, I have juggled various roles. A majority of my time is spent on client delivery and data delivery.

There is a lack of data to calculate the average. 😉
But, as a proxy, out of the 2013 days, there were 1226 meeting invites (according to Google calendar). If we remove the weekends & holidays, then on an average I approximately had one meeting a day.

4) What’s your favourite Crayon memory?

That the office can be a home. (It quite literally became home during the Chennai floods.)

The bean bags at the Chill Corner.

6) What do you contribute to Crayon? (Apart from your functional knowledge!)

I have a winning streak at Crayon. I’ve won the 2017 Carrom Championship along with my partner Varun. And Karuna and I were the runners-up for this year’s Badminton Championship. I’ve also run in the Chennai marathon every year, from 2013 to 2016 (representing Crayon of course!).

7) If you were a Crayon colour, what colour would you be? And why?

Purple or blue. Because they’re my favourite 😉
