By Satish Purohit April 2011 The men and women who collectively make team LP share the joy, camaraderie, and growth that light their workdays at LIFE POSITIVE, India’s premier magazine for the new age University of LP It is clear to me that God is in the driver’s seat at LP because I don’t know of any publication that runs on as meagre a budget. Our freelancers come free, we always get the right people to help us at the right time. While the sailing often gets rough, we always manage to bring out the edition, the bumps notwithstanding. Working at LP is a daily lesson in doing with commitment and love what many cannot do with all the money in the world. Satish Purohit, Deputy Editor Mantra of goodness Where would you have colleagues who are more concerned about your overall wellbeing than deadlines? Where else would you get letters from readers applauding you for conveying subtle spiritual insights to them? Where else would you have an organisation that always places integrity over money? Humility, compassion, acceptance, surrender, courage – working at Life Positive has taught me this not just through writing but through the way people in the organisation function and embody these principles. I am really happy to be part of Life Positive and hope its principles take root in homes and workplaces of all its readers in the months ahead. Jamuna Rangachari, Assistant Editor Thank you, God 2011 opened new avenues in my life. I had never dreamt that I would land a job with a prestigious magazine like Life Positive. Above all, I am in the magazine when LP is celebrating its 15th anniversary. I bow my head to God who paved my way to Life Positive. It’s due to my parents’ boundless blessings that God has gifted me the opportunity to work with Life Positive. Nipun A. Jacob, Correspondent LP has changed me I have grown as a professional and as a human being since I joined Life Positive in November last year. It is fun working in an atmostphere free of animosity, debilitating competition and office politics. Suma Varughese, our editor-in-chief, is extremely encouraging and generous with praise when we get it right. I have become more confident and more creative because of her support. I work with a publication that has a spiritual-ethical basis, and I would like to believe some of the light from the pages I make has seeped into my life. I am calmer, more composed and happier for having worked with Life Positive. Shreela A Nair, Senior Designer Thank you, LP readers I’m growing, learning and experiencing life anew at Life Positive . My three years in Life Positive have given me direction and focus. I would like to be here forever if that were possible. Life Positive has given me an identity of my own as a journalist and writer. On the 15th anniversary of Life Positive, I thank all the readers of our magazine for their support, which has made this possible for me. Asha Nayal, Assistant Editor, Hindi Life Positive Life changer Life Positive is a life-changer for me. It has changed my perception of life, which used to be quite pessimistic. However, since I joined Life Positive, I have faced all challenges with a positive frame of mind and have always emerged a winner. I don’t give up as easily as I would earlier. I have learnt to live every moment of my life with optimism. I thank God for the opportunity to work in Life Positive. Sonu Sharma, Trainee Correspondent, Hindi Life Positive Calm sutra I am a graphic designer at LP and I must admit that Life Positive has designed my life beautifully. I used to be short-tempered. I have become very calm. Thank you LP. Vijay pal singh, Graphic Designer, Hindi Life Positive LP is my guru Working with Life Positive for the last four-and-a-half-years has made my life a positive experience. My years here have taught me to accept changes to deal with them. Joining Life Positive was undoubtedly an important turning point in my life. I would like to take this opportunity to offer my gratitude to Mr Aditya Ahluwalia, the publisher of the magazine, Ms Suma Varughese, the editor-inchief, and Mr Venkat, the vicepresident of the company for their valuable advice and support. Vijay Dhiman, Event Manager Little did I know When I joined Life Positive on June 6, 2000, I did not know that my journey with LP would be so long. I have worked with many leading publications of the country but working with LP is an altogether new experience. LP has changed my professional, personal and social life. All my colleagues are highly energised, positive and balanced people. I get a lot of encouragement from testimonies of readers whose life trajectory changed because of LP. Laxman S Bhandari, Manager, Product Marketing More than a workplace Life Positive is more than a workplace – it is a second home. Working for Life Positive, I feel professionally satisfied and socially responsible. It offers me tremendous opportunities to learn, sharpen my skills and prove my capabilities. It gives me great pride to serve an organisation that does so much good for society. I continue to be amazed by the teamwork and energy of all my colleagues. It’s an honour to be a part of Life Positive. Pankaj Shukla, Regional Manager Living the Life Positive I handle the sales for the magazine in Chennai for the last one year and am yet to hear a single complaint from our clients. For me, that in itself, is proof of the standards at Life Positive. The letters and emails from thankful readers reinforce my faith. Life Positive has helped me sail through rough patches. It also helps that my seniors in New Delhi and Mumbai are so encouraging. Mangal Raj, Assistant Manager Sales Om Shanti Om I think the biggest gift that Life Positive has given me is peace of mind. I repeat this to myself whenever I meet fellow marketing professionals who are tired from running all those miles in the rat race. In my line of work it is numbers that say whether we have performed or not. While I would like us to do more business because I don’t think we are getting what we deserve, I am happy that we are the best in our category – non-denominational spirituality. It has taught me that being different, being unique is a good way to succeed and can often beat being the most competitive. When you are one of a kind there is no competition. Issac Chettiar, Senior Marketing Executive Life Positive is the best I am overwhelmed on this occasion and the words keep sticking in my mouth. The principles I have learnt at Life Positive have helped create what I am now. Interaction with high-spirited people on the job have taught me life-skills. I am stronger mentally and more positive in my thinking. I sincerely hope my association with Life Positive continues forever. Sangeeta Reen, Executive Secretary An aura of positivity Life Positive has deepened my knowledge of spirituality and holistic living. I have completed a year at Life Positive and these 365 days have been a journey of self-realisation and transformation. Through this period, I have felt an aura of positivity encircling me. I am very happy working with Life Positive. Krishan Kumar, Executive, Product Marketing Balancing factor I work in the complaint- shooting department (subscription). One can understand the challenges, pressure and responsibility that are part of a day’s work for me. Thankfully, the principles of Life Positive have taught me to stay composed in all situations. It helps me to cope with serious situations, tackle pressure and manage my mind. Gurpreet Singh, Senior officer, Subscription Positive force I have been associated with the magazine for the last three years. In this time, I have realised my self-worth as a human being. My job requires patience and good listening skills, which I picked on my job at Life Positive. I interact with 50 Life Positive readers every day, many of who have become close friends. Anita Chandel, Tele-Marketing Executive Ray of hope Life Positive has not only taught me to work professionally, it has also taught me the basics of communication. But LP is a ray of hope that brightens many lives, including mine. I have made the journey from the negative to positive and from darkness to light. Surbhi Roy, Telemarketing Executive Love working here I am part of the Life Positive team for the last six years. I feel blessed being here for such a long time. The cooperation extended to me by my colleagues has to be seen to be believed. The joy-filled atmosphere that is a reality here is a rarity in the corporate world. I would rather spend my day in the office than anywhere else. Ambika Sharma, Assistant Manager, Accounts LP is family For me, the year 2002 is significant because that is when I lost my six-and-a-half-yearold daughter Neha. I was heart-broken .This was when I became a part of the LP family. I credit our magazine and my colleagues with helping me cope with the grief of my immense loss. The insight that shines in the pages of Life Positive ignited my dwindling faith in God. Now, I can understand the basic difference between working merely for money and working for a noble cause. Kamal Saini, Senior Production Executive A few good people In my 11 years with Life Positive, I have seen a conscious effort being made to make our workplace a fair place for all colleagues. I am also a supporter of the values our magazine stands for. I feel we could all do with a little less of religion and much more of spirituality. Life Positive is, in its own way, contributing towards bringing this change. Nitin Ade, Accounts Ex
