It’s Hard To Say Goodbye.

September 10 2014 was a day of mixed feelings at echoVME Digital a leading digital marketing agency in Chennai. Happy because there was going to be a treat, sad because for one of the senior most employees (not in age, in experience with echoVME) it would be the last day. The day started out great with the usual “Where do we go?” debate which almost had the BDE Saranya & Design Head Prashanth emotionally blackmailing one of the deciding Social Media execs to choose Pizza Republic over Bombay Halwa House. Now, as one of the people who was giving the treat (I was also the one blackmailed) it was upto me to decide… and I chose Bombay Halwa House! There was a rousing applause from the vegetarians of the gang, the non-vegetarians were disappointed & Sharath, our SM Marketing exec almost gave up on hopes of eating non-vegetarian food with us!

Crestfallen but still upbeat – the non vegetarians & the happy ones all of us set off to Bombay Halwa House in Poonamallee Road. Being new to Chennai, I must say this city is very deceptive in the image it portrays to people. The building was old & sturdy, one which oozed old world charm. The minute you walk in, the swanky interiors blew my mind! Brown and gold accents, movie posters & scenes were hung in the wall an old Rajesh Khanna movie on the tele completed the ambience.

After a lot of discussion & consideration (we take our food seriously here at echoVME) we decided to bypass the thali & order few appetizers & main course. The Veg Manchurians were ordered, masala khicha & chilly babycorn were favorites too – so of course we ordered them too! The orders kept just pouring in! The usual “Who wants butter naan & who wants butter roti?” was asked by Sorav – Our Thinker-In-Chief (have you noticed no one wanted to eat plain roti or naan?) Never the ones to shy away from making our choices heard, we replied our preferences with gusto! Except for maybe Priya, the newest member of echoVME.

The food arrived & we dig in. Sumptuous is the word that comes to mind when I think back about the lunch that day! Oh and also! The lunch was inundated with the girls taking pictures, complaining to Sailesh – our senior designer – that he didn’t take pictures well (he is a Viscom student & is a trained photographer). There was the question of desserts, but since we had to get back for a client call we decided to skip on it. Well, except for Prashanth, the Design Head mentioned earlier in this blog; his goal was Falooda & he HAD to HAVE it!

Happy & sated from our meal we set out to our workplace. The day ended in a somber note as we each said our goodbyes to Richa Vig – our most beloved friend & colleague who just cannot sing! We wish you all the luck Richa! And we are just too lucky to have met you. Adios, Richa!
