I decided that if my client has never seen me in makeup there’s no reason to put any on— if my hair is brushed and my clothes are nice! Maybe I’ll return to work one day as the makeup-free person I’ve always wanted to be!

Only after 5 weeks I am going to join TCS. In my offer letter it is mentioned I am selected at "TCS Kolkata"; but till now I have not received any information/details/call related to my project yet.

Infact not receiving any proper response from contact points (I understand there may be some protocol that client/project details will not be revealed before joining). Is there anyway I could get atleast some details?
