    Ek Saal Baad

    This day last year, more than 180 students found their way to a Business School in Hinjewadi. The school was Symbiosis Centre for Management and HRD and yours truly was one of those 180+ students. The first fortnight at SCMHRD was crazy. But, that was just the beginning. What followed was a crazy semester during which Ravi and me formed the WebComm and redesigned and relaunched the SCMHRD website. Also joined the Admissions Team, which would ensure that the next semester would be more hectic than the first. Not because of the hectic schedule we have at college, but because Admissions demanded our total dedication, which we did. The admissions…

    I’m being FCQed!

    Well, our batch (except for a few bookworms) are definitely on a rollercoaster ride this semester. Every single FCQ that comes our way seems to be a major disaster. Because of oversmartness or sheer stupidity, a perfectly well going FM paper was set on the path of ruin. Finance students are now in a state of hope and despair! Operations Management is one subject that is also in an equal state of disarray with a lab exam with two questions nobody knew the answers of or were not able to complete it in time! We also made a presentation in Brand Management based on a Starbucks case by Mary Crossan…

    Two Nights in College

    Have spent the last two nights in college. Returned last morning at around 5.30am and this morning around 6.15am after working the night out on the new College website. Things are going good, though we should have been complete by now. Ravi joined me in the quest. Sat for two lectures today after almost two days gap; most of which was spent in front of my laptop in the Admissions room, except for breaks for food and nature and seven hours of sleep in the 48 hours. I’m zonked today and though tomorrow is the holiday for our vendor, however, we don’t have a luxury of holidays out here in…

    During one of our lectures last week, a lively professor was telling us about his MBA life at IIMA. When asked about the tests that they followed he, as part of the conversation decribed the experience with five letters, viz. R-A-P-E-D. We got a taste of that this Saturday.

    Lost in SCMHRD Work

    Just a short note to say that I am alive (atleast for now). Life here is hectic and we have been constantly getting only 4-5 hours of sleep every night… can be a pain in lectures… I’ll try making a detailed post sometime soon. As of now my datacard is disabled so I can’t get online in the hostel, all thanks to the highly inefficient Reliance customer care! They sure can be a real pain in the ***

    Goa Travels: Day 0 – Bombay to Goa

    As I mentioned last week, I took one last holiday before my MBA course begins to visit Goa for a week along with some friends. We had booked tickets via Paulo Sleeper Coach. This is my first trip to Goa and also my first travel via the sleeper. We booked the upper beds in the Volvo and realized that was a big mistake.

    Sunday so far

    Sunday so far hasn’t been a very enjoyable Sunday 🙁 For one I had a very disturbed sleep and I probably know the reason why. As a result I was rather groggy early morning as I rushed for the 8.30am mass. George Burns once said: The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, and to have the two as close together as possible. Unfortunately, our priests haven’t learnt this yet. Had yet another AIMCAT today and yet again my DI went down under! 🙁 I really need to figure out how to maximize all three sections and time is running out!

    As the week draws to a close

    I’ve had an extremely frustrating week. Began Monday itself on a really bad note (details soon). But, it kind of helped me get through the rest of the week 🙂 The rest of the week was quite exhausting as I have been working on completely the handover process which is nearly done. I also started a countdown to 11th August, which is my last day at work, by changing my display name on IPMessenger. This has created quite a sensation in office and I was reminded when I forgot to update it last morning. 😉 Sleep has been pretty much on the back seat for the past two days because…
