I am writing this with a sense of utter delight and enthusiasm for everyone out there to know and appreciate the power of network. A month back I got selected for Tim Draper’s “Draper University” and posted about this on trhs and this is how the magic happened.
Alok Shares this on his profile and there comes a comment from a person I never knew, Shobhit!
3 weeks back I became friends with him on Facebook:-
To my delight and surprise Shobhit called me a week before I had my flight to San Francisco and said he will come along to pick me up from the airport. I mean in today’s date who bothers to make a cross country call and make an offer to pick you up on a Saturday(when you are a stranger) added with the fact that I was crashing at his place for a day.
Well, the hospitality and generosity with which Shobhit hosted me and came along to the airport just makes my belief strong that there’s no dearth of good people out there, only thing we need to do, is keep looking and keep rodinhooding if I may say so! 🙂
And, did I miss saying that he and his lovely wife took me around the city on the very day I landed! 🙂
Thank you therodinhoods, you have become a way of life to me.
