My last day (3rd Sept) at #Xiaomi was as exciting as my 1st day. About 4 and a half years, tons of launches, 100s of campaigns and some bonds that will last a lifetime, I want to say one last time to everyone who stood by me through this incredible journey.#NoMiWithoutYou ?? pic.twitter.com/sP27WOjOEJ— Karan Shroff (@kshroff1989) September 4, 2019
