When I was shifting base from a Diplomatic Mission to hotels, I was not quite aware of how much

threads and look the part one played in this show business-like, people-centric industry. There was a
big lesson to learn that the transition had to be accompanied by transformation in one's choice and
style of dressing. On hindsight, I am quite surprised about why I was shortlisted and selected despite
my pick of Sunday best that I wore, accessorized by no less garish stuff than terracotta jewellery.
Luckily for me, the selection committee bypassed the veneer to concentrate on the baggage I carried
within, just this once.
