Adieu to Manipal group for a new sunshine! – My Farewell Email



Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatu Allah. And a very good day.

30th of April, 2013 marks the last day of my journey in this company. Another big step in my life, really. To be honest, I don’t even know what I should write for my farewell message. I wrote a few articles before but no doubt, this is definitely a tough one. I don’t know how to write in decent language that makes you feel like reading a sonata. I also don’t want it to be too formal that some of you might just scroll down at this page for a few seconds and click the ‘close window’ icon.

So I will just be me. Plain, passionate and sincere message that will make it Anas Ebrahem Style.

My journey in Manipal Group – I could not be more grateful to Allah that I have been given a chance to be a part of Manipal family. Truly I am.

I am very grateful to Mr. Jerry Joseph Sir – Deputy Director HR of Manipal University who interviewed me back in 2007. Thank you Sir for recruiting me and welcoming me to the Manipal Family / Group. I am also thankful to the International admissions team of Manipal University where I worked for a very short stint. Thank you to Diana Ma’am, Sheela Ma’am, Suresh Sir, Sakaram Sir and Sunanda Ma’am. It was a pleasure working with you all.

I’m proud to be Kasturba Hospital, Manipal staff and be a part of Manipal Family / Group. I learned a lot. Seriously a lot. This company and the people in it have taught me many lessons, be it in my career and personal life. And I appreciate and being thankful for all experiences and moments that I have spent here. Of course there were some challenges for me but a smooth sea never made a skilled mariner, aye?

What’s Next? – “All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. I’m leaving for a better job. I feel the change will be beneficial to my long term career goals and objectives

My Heartiest Dedication – There are just too many friends that I have in Kasturba Hospital, Manipal and in Manipal University and from Manipal group. Please forgive me for not being able to state those names one by one and I hope I do not hurt your feeling if I forget to mention your name here.
