My farewell mail while leaving Yahoo

When I left Yahoo in just seven months, I had sent out a farewell mail to all my Yahoo colleagues. Today, while going through my old mails…I saw this and I have to admit that I was impressed with the farewell mail I had sent out.

Thought why not share it with you. If you want to read the funniest farewell mail ever written, you will have to click here.

Here goes the farewell mail I wrote on June 14, 2007. I have to admit that I was a creative person before the heavy work at ibibo took its toll. 🙂


Dear friend,

My innings here in Yahoo has come to and end and shortly I will be donning my gloves for another team.

It has been quite an ODI at Yahoo – loads of action and adrenalin. Not to mention the appeals, yorkers, reverse-swings, sliding stops and powerplays which have made the seven months all the more exciting. Yahoo! India has been a perfect batting pitch and I have to admit that my stint at the crease has been enjoyable.

Unlike the world of Faster, Stronger, Higher at Yahoo! Sports, my new venture would be less glamorous. I will be helping build internet based products for a start-up based out of Gurgaon.

Now…for another venue and another match. Wish me luck.
