I joined Polaris Consulting & Services Ltd in Jan 2015 after a long engagement. Virtusa Corporation ( NASDAQ GS: VRTU) acquired majority interest  in Polaris and the annoucement was made yesterday. I am very happy for both the companies.

Generally my posts are self reflexive and of my humble journey. I share this news in the same context. I remember before starting my work journey. I had taken advise from two people whose opinion was important to me. My father and my school mate Samir who was then studying in MIT. I was clueless after a failure in public examination. I wanted to try something of my own. My father told me ” to do something longterm and lasting.”  I had written to my freind who guided me ” to gain valuable experience before taking a entreprenuerial plunge.” I was restless and dived in. I remember them today. What have I achieved? I had a very hard and interesting journey. I console myself that did some great assignments. Amazon,  RM and  Scottish goverment. I met my friends. This journey has led me to Polaris – Virtusa.  I hope Polaris – Virtusa works out for me.

This for today. Goodnight friends!

Love, Suresh
