MY dream which WE can turn into a reality

Naju D. Mohan, Delivery Manager, Data Services, Infosys Validation Solutions

She still remembered walking in the humid Indian summer, with sweat dripping down her back along with her two clients from the United States. They had never seen these gentle giants so close in America, though they were into the business of outdoor adventure. They seemed to soak in every bit of the smell of freshly cut grass and coconut, awaiting the elephants bathing in the lake. She sat on the wooden bench impatiently twiddling her thumbs, for it was her 5th trip in the last six months to the elephant centre with various visiting dignitaries. It was that conversation she had with her clients, which occupied every waking moment of her life, apart from work for the next few years.

She was fond of traditions and flowering forests, as she grew up in a small village near a temple. The idea of a 19-day Everest base camp adventure trek ignited her spirits. She spoke about it in detail with her clients, collected all details about the trek and started planning for the expenses. The image of her old parents travelling 30km daily on an old Bajaj Chetak through dusty village roads to their small family shop sprang up in her mind. She had to save for the next three years for her 19-day trek, instead of an Alto 800.

Her dream which kept her going for the last six years was turning into a reality. Her parents drove down from village in their new car to the city where she worked. They had brought with them her favourite childhood snack, homemade murukku, to pack for her trekking. The sunlight which shone through the window was mesmerizing, but the mother noticed a paleness on her daughter's face. She had made a last minute order for insulated jacket through an online portal. She found her bank account empty, the next day. She had become yet another victim of online fraud.

She was distraught sitting on the electric blue carpet, with the triangle of white light advancing through the room. She wished, if only she had asked her bank to use Infosys validation solution to prevent online card skimming. If only her bank had provided a timely alert using Infosys' analytics solution about the credibility of the online portal. Wishing wisely does not come easily to us. We use a thousand products of various companies with full faith. My small dream, is that each one of us make those companies aware of Infosys validation solutions and offerings!!!
