    Dear Sir,
    It is really heartening to note that you have achieved the pinnacle of your growth from the fraternity of HR the dream of the most to cherish with. You proved one can aspire to have such dreams and can as well turn into reality. You are the real hero with a commitment to the profession. I feel really proud to have interacted at Hyderabad office of NTPC. Excuse for the belated wishes.
