From the Editorial Desk

Hello readers,


Though this year has been quite challenging with pandemic impacting many lives, we shouldn’t let it dampen our spirits. With 107cr vaccine doses given till date, it is indeed a reason to celebrate. Trailing on the same thought, this festive season and as we head into the new year, let us count our blessings, and to keep our fighting spirit alive.

In this issue, we are presenting updates from our President Ragini Rao, TSTA-P, about how SAATA powered through and aligned their short-term and long-term goals. We have Deepak, our conference convener sharing with open vulnerability how it was a tough decision to cancel the SAATA conference. We have interesting updates from Aruna, VP - Research and Publications, Prathitha – VP Operations, dev team, and PTSTA workshop from Suriya – Secretary.

A must read in this edition, is an “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” by Samiksha Jain where she shares her journey to write a professional will and how she sought support from her family and colleagues.

With things opening up, let’s hope things go back to normal, or the new normal, which is a mixed online and offline approach. We present an article “Unmute Please” capturing experiences of SAATA trainers transitioning from offline to online mode and best practices for working online.

We have trainees and members of SAATA clearing exams, STA (P) new is Annie Cariapa; CTA (P) Sarmishta, CTA (E) Anisha Pandya who is also PTSTA (P). A big round of applause from the newsletter team. Do congratulate them folks!

Missing having fun in TA – head to our Creative Corner and solve the Think TAnk by Asha Raghavan. A definite MUST read - the heartfelt poem by Krithika Akkaraju. A special “book review” awaits you and we hope our cartoon quip makes you smile.

SAATA newsletter team wishes you and your family a very happy and prosperous Diwali, Merry Christmas, and Happy New year!
