Best day of my professional life.

I had encountered a very difficult situation in my life when I was working at Vedanta.I was working as Short Term Mine Planner in Mine Planning Dept(HZL).It was hardly an year i spent there in department.As usual every year we used to make Monsoon Plan for open cut mines as per the past data and records of rainfall.During my time the amount of rainfall was beyond the imagination and forecast.Entire mine was in water and ore supply was impacted for coming days. I was asked to make an immediate contingency mine operation plan to deliver ore supply in coming days.It was the same time when i was the youngest and most experience fellow in my department after my boss,rest all had resigned left with the new seniors in department. Was a bit nervous and hesitated to take the challenge.But I look it as an opportunity and gave my best with my basic concepts of mine planning.I gave job to my seniors and worked with 5 options to encounter the risk and started working to design another pushback/stage through datamine under huge pressure. I gave my presentation in front of senior management as well as CEO.Everyone followed my plan and we achieved on target day.I really enjoyed because i had worked 16 hours for 2 months consistently with my team.This was the hardest and most enjoyable part of my life. Later on I was appreciated by CEO for my efforts.I was the youngest to achieve it among my team where i was the leader.

Pros

Dedicated and consistent team work

Cons

Appreciated by CEO(HZL, VEDANTA) for best performance in Mine Planning
