The Intern Diaries- Surya Vani

An internship at giftxoxo.com is really an amazing experience that I am going through.

I am glad to be part of giftxoxo.com.  On my first  day  at office  I  was  nervous  as it was a new place to learn something. But the way Pallavi, who handles customer service at giftxoxo received me was really good. She made me comfortable from the day 1 itself.

I truly appreciate the birthday party arrangements at giftxoxo.com is because it makes all the employees work happily and with motivation. I was very happy that I took  part in one of our employee’s  birthday party just a week into my internship. The party was full of fun, confetti, and of course birthday bumps to birthday boy.  It all made me so excited and relaxed.

I personally thank Mr. Manoj  for giving me an opportunity to be part of giftxoxo and  for supporting  me,  and Mr. Summit  sir for encouraging me to think about new ideas . I also thank Pallavi, who always motivates me, and even Mr. Manoj Gupta for encouraging me in my work.

Under their guidance my work has become very easy and the work environment is too good.

Thank you

The Naming Saga- THE BUZZER ROUND

399073_390566824368796_1586421258_nDon’t panic, It’s just a title. I am not going to ask you questions and you have to answer that by buzzing me as everybody calls me Buzzer. It’s a story about how me, Nishant (a internee at giftxoxo.com) turned into Buzzer (My office name). Phew!!! It’s in office only. Buzzer, what are you doing? Have you completed your work, Buzzerrr!!! Buzzer where is today’s report. Buzzerrr!!!! Write a blog on how you got your name. So, HERE IT IS: Giftxoxo turned a living being into a thing that will be buzzed every time, everywhere and by everyone.

It started like this: One day I was, as usual, sitting in front of my laptop when suddenly Anoop sir (Product Manager at giftxoxo.com) with his cunning smile asked us (intern team) to accompany him. We went to the restaurant, ordered things( i don’t really remember) and was waiting, when suddenly i again saw that cunning smile and then he said…It will take some time as we have just ordered, why not u all, new intern, entertain us (old intern+ Shazeem sir + Anoop sir) . He has asked for the same thing before and I just cracked a joke that time but know i knew that i can’t get away with joke. So, I decided to Introduce everybody of what BUZZER ROUND means In IIT. But then i realized that its content can’t be disclosed in public especially when you have a Girl (IITian) in your team. So, my team mate, Naman (IIT Kanpur) introduces all of us with a different version of buzzer round and yeah, this version is meant for the public especially when you have a Girl (IITian) in your team. But the I realized, i know i was late in realizing that, she belongs to IIT so she must have known the meaning of BUZZER ROUND and then i disclosed the real version in front of everyone. And Anoop sir came with a name of mine BUZZER. My team mates also got their name as Madhuri, Twitter and Rubik’s. I think they would also be writing a blog on how do they got their names.

If somebody is really interested to know what BUZZER ROUND IS, call me.

The Naming Saga- Main madhuri banna chahti hoon

It was Saturday (end of my first week) at my first internship @ giftxoxo.com and then came a mail showing monthly meeting notification.I was quite excited about what is about to happen in the meeting. Though I thought it to be a formal one but it came out to be an informal meeting giving rewards and recognition to the “first intern batch” of Giftxoxo. They were really great guys who have helped me a lot during their last days and my initial days. After certificate distribution to all the interns, came the time of STAR INTERN award. We were ask to make guesses and many different names came out shouting and finally it was “MOHIT”, aka feedback guy.

He started with his working experience and didn’t stop, after listening to him even the one left early (DEEPAK aka FUSE guy) without saying much about their work and experience came up and started again. It took so long that even our seniors ask them to cut short. Following this was cake cutting celebration (for which we waited too long, waiting for an employee from old office) on which everybody jumped as hungry mad people(it was really funny site), we also had snacks and cold drinks.

Prior to Saturday, all the new intern (me and nishant) were ask to entertain everyone by cracking joke during lunch when our order was pending.

Although I cracked a joke scanning a funny message from my mobile inbox, nishant wasn’t able to do so.

So he was asked by ANOOP sir to learn 50 (without googling)jokes and for me it was 25(with help of google). (Anoop sir was doing all this to prove that even new office is fun, which I came to know after this meeting..:P).

Coming back to Saturday, we were about to perform with this jokes in front of everyone. So it started with nishant and everyone was laughing hilariously and then came my turn. I started saying “ maibhiek joke sunatihu” and the a loud synchronised voice came “NAHIIIii……… woho chukka h kuchaurkro.” Next what I could see was nishant laughing at me and acting “mai to bachgaya”.

Then everyone started suggesting whati can do?, with aka FUSE suggestion that “I know she dances well”.

He too danced well so it was finalised that we would be dancing together.

Finally after short practice we performed on “badtameezdil”..which was highly enjoyed by everyone and guess what I got my name MADHURI from Anoop sir.

“MADHURI and FUSE ka badtameez performance it was”..
