Inception of Nomadic Verses

I’m glad I’ve finally written the first post on my very own blog & have covered most of my thoughts. 'Nomadic Verses' would cover an array of topics over my interest areas such as Digital Media, Events, Entrepreneurship, Startups etc. On a lighter note, I often think philosophically about a few incidents on day to day basis in life so do not be surprised to read a tad bit theory on that as well!

To delve into who I am & what I do - Born & brought up in Muscat, Oman (no more an NRI); Completed pre college studies & landed in Bombay (Yes I do not call Bombay ‘Mumbai’) in 2003; Graduated from MMK College of Commerce & did a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Relations & Corporate Communications from Xavier Institute of Communications.  In between my graduation, I’ve freelanced as an Event Manager (my first love & passion) by planning, executing & organizing few of the finest events in the luxury, corporate and government sector. And not to forget, hosted & anchored several shows – those that give more air to my hobby, those that offer a learning experience & most importantly make me happy!

On a professional note, I entered the digital media space exactly a year back by debuting my career in WATMedia Pvt Ltd as a PR & Social Media Executive & later as an Event Manager & Senior Communication Executive. Little did I know my life was about to take a full swing curve. The last 11 months have taught me the basics about how a startup functions - role management, performing multi-tasking activities, being initiative & approachable, learning & sharing, overcoming challenges, drafting & achieving scalable goals. But most importantly on how an Entrepreneur thinks, acts & leads a team in the right direction. I’ve had the good fortune of working with one such young entrepreneur (Rajiv Dingra, CEO, WATMedia Pvt Ltd) who, being a first generation entrepreneur, has given me various opportunities to explore my niche qualities & support me to excel in whatever I took up. However, I’ll have several more posts dedicated to my learnings of the past one year so I wouldn’t rant about it in the initial post itself.

What I do treasure at the end of the day is meeting beautifully talented people as colleagues who share a warm & motivating relationship with each other. I’m glad to having entered the Digital Media industry at its inception as the opportunity to connect with its thought leaders is higher & that gives me a better sense of understanding the industry in & out.

With that short bio about me & my life, I hope to interact a lot more via Nomadic Verses (originated from my name NV – Namita Ved) & post interesting ideologies about my take on several things & initiatives I take up in life. A strong believer of ‘learning from feedback’ I preach – I welcome comments on what you would as a reader love to read on my blog & I’d be happy to comply in the best possible manner. (Complimentary comments goes without saying)

My next post would be about my experience on organizing my first every event - WATSummit 2011.

A trademark I’d like to keep at the end of every post – a saying/proverb by great humans who inspire me & my thoughts!
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." – By Confucius

PS – Thank you Jason Menezes for helping me finalize the name for my blog & Parth Mistry for the initial words of motivation!

  2. Hi Namita

    I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper (www.theviewspaper.net) which is India's largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

    We are organizing the World's Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

    From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

    Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. We’ve got it all, and more. We’ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized – but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

    It is our nation’s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

    A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, we’ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and that’s where you come in.

    We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

    If you're interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

    I look forward to hearing from you.Please mail us garima@theviewspaper.net if interested.

    Regards

    Garima Obrah
