Hello Mrs UPPCL,
WOW! “41 years of service”!
This is not a chapter but a book that you have written Mumma. Let me share with the world how through your life you made us read a legend’s bio.
In the words of Gandhi, let me quote that “Your life is your message.”
Firstly, let me congratulate you with a thunderous applaud and a standing ovation for the service you have delivered. No amount of words can describe what you have put in this job.
What an electrifying performance you have given working with the electricity department!
Introducing Anita Banerjee
A power-packed lady who is retiring as an Administrative Officer after 41 years of service with the electricity department, Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL), Government of Uttar Pradesh.
She is a strong woman who is both soft and powerful. She is the rock of our family and the pillar of her organization. It was through her work and conduct that many lives were impacted while she thought that she was just going for a 9 to 5 job.
She is a beast in her own way but one word describes her best… Strong!
She is so educated that she knows to be humble. She is a gift to the world.
In short, her life is her message.
Let’s take a flashback
For decades you have put through the dull, throbbing pain of working jobs but never let it come to your face while returning home. At work, you were known as an untiring worker; at home you never slacked in your duty for a moment, which is why we call you our superwoman.
How many times did Babaai, Didi and I shout at you for breakfast, clothes, or missing homework but you always ensured things fall in place.
You never stopped moving. And you almost never put yourself first, instead living in a sleep-getting-the-kids-ready-commuting-work-commuting-looking-after-kids-dad-sleep continuum that sometimes never seemed to end.
She blends work-life
You are an inspiration for all as the way you handle both home and office earns a great retirement life. You juggled family and work so beautifully.
It is because of you that we know family isn’t just about “I, my husband and Kids”.
It’s beyond that. It’s about relationships, gatherings, festivals that are celebrated with everyone.
It is because of you we know that it is not just the good times but also the tough ones when we all stand together for each other.
It’s because of you we know how happy a family can be under four walls and one roof even in the most difficult times.
It is because of you we look forward to bond with relatives and share love in every possible way.
It is because of you we know there is more in giving than receiving.
On behalf of all your loved ones I want you to know that you are precious and you matter a lot to all of us.
We are the witness of your devotion throughout your years of service; under the rain, sun, and snow you did not relapse in your commitment at work.
We bow down for you. Salute!
Respect is her biggest asset
If respect could be converted into rupees, I could bet on anything that Mrs Anita Banerjee is the richest woman in the world. And, she has earned it.
We all look up to you for the woman you are.
You are reputed, dignified and highly valued.
If a character certificate wasn’t in words, it would be in gold for a person like you.
You have given the same respect to every person at the workplace and always treated your colleagues with humanity. The way you have conducted yourself at work has always made everyone around you just look up to you.
Wishes for the future
After all these years of hard work and stress, you have finally completed the journey.
It’s time to settle down and take it easy. You are a virtuous woman indeed. You deserve the best that life has for you ahead, mom. I feel so proud saying that I am your daughter because you are the perfect example of homemaker as well as a professional.
As you retire, mom, remember you’re loved and you’ll always have something to do because your children will always need your love. And they will always need you.
Finally the time has come for your relax, there is no more work pressure, no more time schedule and no more headache.
Now that you are officially a retiree, Mumma, I hope you enjoy every minute of your life. You deserve it.
I congratulate you on your enormous achievements and wish you a truly wonderful retirement packed with good health, happiness and peace.
Congratulations on your retirement! Have a fun-filled and fulfilled retirement.
