Going back to your roots doesn’t necessarily mean going back to a place where you were born and spent your formative years, sometimes it also means revising the place from where your birth and journey as the person you are today all stared.
And such a memorable and special moment unfolded for a group of engineers recently when they revisited the campus of their old workplace where they not only started their journey as budding and energetic engineers striving for excellence but also dedicated 20 years of work life.
This is the story of an old factory which was based out in a far flung a Madurai village and a group of 15 engineers.
The otherwise non-descript Anani Karai Patti village near Madurai was a proud factory base of one of world’s oldest and prestigious motorcycle manufacturers, Royal Enfield, which is still in business. The factory started its journey in 1970s, witnessed growth and closed down in 1990s for shifting the base to other location. But for these engineers, who witnessed it all, the experiences remain etched as their memories.
And it is with these memories they recently revisited campus of their old work place. The campus now houses a mill for a textile firm though, the quarters where they lived as bachelors still stand reminiscent of the good old days.
To make the moment memorable and special and share their joy, they invited the 120 employees working currently at the textile mill, company doctor and a social entrepreneur (Ex MLA) who willingly participated. They shared their work experience at the old factory as engineers and encouraged the participants to achieve excellence in their respective fields of works.
Also, they hosted a lunch for the 120 employees working currently for the textile mill and presented a memento each.
