FUTURE MANAGERS


We love to party
We love to rock
We know what to do next
We know good time management
We understand no rules
We are ambitious
We are cool….
We are future managers!!!!!

Every time in every other lecture one or the other faculty delivers this dialogue ‘You people are future Managers…..’ (And obviously then followed by some criticism like learn to do this learn to do that)...
Well… we are now pretty sure that we are going to be future managers… coz each time we are given a task a night before and we present it the very next day… it is very well said for us ‘if you’ll be given a task to submit next Tuesday you’ll start with it on previous night…’
And I won’t say this statement is incorrect….. In fact this is very true and that’s what we are learning here ‘Prioritizing’… so when you know you already have other important things today why to do something for which you have a week or so…. ;)
We love to party…. No matter what we score…. We party coz it’s over…. ;) say exams…. They rarely go well but we never forget to celebrate the moment that it’s over…
Earlier for most of the people… sleep was the solution after a tiring day…. Now it’s shifted to relaxing by doing some party or going out…. And of course sleep too but no fix time for it….. We can sleep at any time of the day and work mostly late at night…. It’s obvious when you are thirsty you’ll drink more water….. Similarly when you are working under such hectic schedule you need more party ;)
We know how to work smart…. Of course with touch of hard work…. We are concerned about everything from social life with friends to personal life and time for ourselves… We are tech savvy and style concious.....
Future managers are always concerned about their social image but are equally concerned about their appearance… time is gone when people used to concentrate only on work….
We are too demanding we want everything from life…. And we move with lots and lots of desires….. And somehow we know we’ll fulfill them too…….
We are carefree but not careless….. We are cool but ambitious…… we are willing to work but love to party….. We enjoy life to the fullest….. We rock…. Yes…… We are future managers….
CHEERS!!!!!!!!!! :))

FOUR days of December: Two not so good days of my life!!! (continued…)

Well…. After writing the previous blog that night I started searching few topics of syllabus online…. But none was that convincing… So I decided to sleep…. Since it was MARKETING exam… I was pretty much happy…. I read few topics quite well previously.... in the morning…. Although I decided to study…. But then I was busy online doing something else and…. Noticed it was 9.30am already….. I rushed quickly took bath and was in college before 10…. Phewww!!!!! Lucky me…. But only before exam started… soon I got the Question paper…. I was not that much happy.. though somehow I had certain idea… about the answers… but none was from my favorites…. Anyways… I was not much satisfied with it…. then my break….. 3 hours lifeline for the next exam that was IT…. In the break I positively covered the topics taught in class and was pretty sure that I will do fine…. But as soon as I received Q-paper again..… I was not happy…. Or say this time I was disappointed… most of the paper was from 1st semester syllabus….and very less was there from all the topics I covered….. :(….. I walked that day from college to home… and was thinking all the way…. After coming back I had food… and started with the next topic….. Well…. I really dunno what went wrong in these last two days…. Nothing went according to my expectations…. Except one thing… (Eliminating that)…..
Next day was here…. I quickly revised few things… though I was not in the mood to revise as previous day was not that fair… exam hall… paper in hand…. I done it and I can say this day my subconscious mind was ruling me…. Entire day…. I didn’t felt anything about what I done in the exam…. And after it got over… I mean ‘my paper’…. Which was 30 minutes before time…. I went out of the class with my Q-paper and didn’t realized at all that it was my answer sheet which I was holding in hands with me and Q-paper was what I left to submit… until a gal came and told me invigilator was calling me and I was carrying my answer sheet…I opened my bag and realized… hell yeaah…..!!!!!!!! I rushed back… it was quite embarrassing as well… :( …. but I really dunno where my mind was for the entire day………
Now comes the break time…. and I didn’t felt like studying… though I read few topics…… but my concentration was missing….. I was losing focus…. And I left it after an hour of study…. I was in college but not studying.… Exam time…. the last paper…. the last bell… (For the time being)… I got the paper and it was easy but hell again... since I didn’t concentrate earlier… I tried hard to recall the formulas…. But it was all jumbled up…. And I badly messed up my paper…. Aah!!! Since exams were over finally I was relaxed…. But of course life can’t be relaxed here more than few hours…. New projects and assignments waiting for me already...……
Well…. Life Rocks always!!!!!! After all bad days too teach us something… (it sounds good at least)… Amen…

FOUR days of December…

Ohh no its 5.30am… nooo….!!! I wanna sleep for 5 more mins… I just slept… just 2 hours before…… ohh no its 7.…..so early….. Hell… I want more sleep but.... have to go college…. Rushing… preparing my espresso… Quickly doing some work out…. And then…. Going to get refreshed in ‘NOIDA’ water…. Well yeah…. NOIDA WATER….… Nowhere in Delhi…. Water can be so bad… well anyways… getting ready like life moving in fast motion…. Rushing for class…. Noo.. Not again…. But yes…. Am again late today…..
Well my usual day starts like this…. Then proceeds with long continuous lectures…. Which I frequently attend.. Almost daily…. ;) in between we get break of 15mins.. Sometimes less…. But those 15mins we really enjoy… then comes the evening…. Home sweet home…. It feels good to be home after a long day…… then some cooking…. sometimes playing with my friends… :) And after that of course…. assignments and presentations…. Part of my daily life……
A normal day almost goes like this…. Bit hectic but I love my routine…. :D
Life was going good so far… until one fine day we got our date sheet for 2nd mid semester exams…. Well it was nothing new…. Just another part of routine…. Exams… date sheets…. Nothing new…. I almost ignored it this time…. ignored it for 2-3 weeks… then before 3-4days of exams I clicked the picture of that notice in my cell phone…. But wasn’t bothered to read it…. I know am too careless at times…. and I accept it…. ;)
Well here come the time of exam… before starting I would like to explain the kind of exam schedule we had… it was for four days without any break and two exams each day…. Well I usually study just a night before the exam day… but this time it was different….
A day before my first exam….. ohh no where is the syllabus…. What all topics are coming…. What all we covered in class….. Everything just nil…. And then its me… ha ha ha…. I was blank but first time I was not stressed… Sometimes i feel am learning very good stress management in MBA… :D
Things here do give me stress but not in terms of academics… well…. Whole night I just didn’t opened book…. Then half an hour before sleeping I just felt like looking what all is coming… so I started with the 2nd chapter of LAW…. Wow…. Law is so easy… but hell I have no time left… I just went through that chapter and slept… I call myself nocturnal but I really dunno what happens in exams….. :P
Comes the day 1.. Well... as usual I got up late…. This day also…. 7…. Ohh noo…. Where is the book…. All routine… changed…. Espresso+book…. That’s so.. Law…. Going through one more chapter in the morning… I very quickly got ready and rushed to college…. Thank God!!! Am 1 minute before time…. :)
Here comes the paper in my hands…. Well starting with the MCQs… they are just your luck…. If it’s your day… you’ll score… if not then…. Deduct 15 marks… and did I mention my seat….?? Well I was sitting on the first seat in the middle row in the hall…. Though I never cheat…. But this time I didn’t had any chance too…. Well coming back to the paper….. it was something I have seen… dunno where… I guess last night in syllabus…. Hell yeaah… but what was it??? no clue…. Now comes your writing skill test… how well you can write stories…. And here I begin with the stories… the stories of LAW…. Exam finished… well I utilized my most of the time… now I have to go back home and see what’s in the syllabus for next exam for which we got about 3 hours gap….. Or say a lifeline…. I rushed back… opened book… and gave an overview to all the topics of the syllabus of next subject that was BUSINESS RESEARCH METHODS.… :)…
Comes the second part of the day…. Paper in my hand… well… yes… I know something… I can say I didn’t wasted my 3 hours….. Coming back to my home sweet home…. Well.. no cooking today… nothing…. Just exams for tomorrow…. I looked at the syllabus pretty early this time…. but hell again I dunno what all is coming in exam… calling buddies and asking who themselves are not very sure…. Well….okey forget it… am tired I need a sound sleep…. But no…. exam….. my dizziness not allowing me to study and my exam not leaving my mind to sleep… in the fight of two I was compelled to study… completed 1 chapter… and slept…. Morning again… am late again…. Completing with another chapter and rushing to college…. And comes the paper…. Well…. First thing its FINANCE… not my subject…. Second all alien Qs for us…. Yeeaah I said ‘us’… :)… I was feeling lucky that am not alone…. There are few people who studied but are standing with me… saying… it was bad…. Anyways I don’t mind standing alone too ;)… Again the next paper…. 3 hours break…. And this time I didn’t opened the book… and actually I didn’t knew the syllabus… so I decided to relax…. After 3 hours…. Paper was in my hands…. Well…. Feeling good…!!!!!!! It was nothing from the syllabus…. all a very practical paper…. Very general.. I enjoyed it and I was happy that I relaxed for those three hours…… :D
And third is yet to come tomorrow…. And am here relaxing…. It was a stress buster for me to write… and…. Now I must look where is my book…. Will continue rest of the story soon after exams…. Till then…. To be continued….. :)

Amazing 'JUNGA'



Junga… a small village 40 kms away from Shimla, Himachal Pradesh..
A very beautiful hill station in the lap of nature.. A place away from noise and pollution…
A place that existed somewhere in my imagination… A place which is as beautiful as its people….
A place where everyone fall in love…. A place called as Junga A Land of Love….

I got this opportunity of visiting Junga last year i.e., final year of my college for our fieldtrip.. I must say it was not just a fieldtrip which taught me in terms of the place and its culture but also in terms of life and how beautiful it can be…. It was something which is still alive in my memory…. As if I just came back from there or may be the cold winter nights are reminding me of those cold nights.... amazing place…. I feel as if I lived a dream… scenic beauty that I composed in thoughts…. Such a beautiful creation of God it is…. Must say… like a heaven on the earth… at least for me from the places I visited till now it was something different… A place in the lap of hills…
One strange thing about Junga was 98% of total marriages there were love marriages… and it was belief of people there that Junga makes people fall in love… Well.. no comments on their belief ;) ;)
One reason of why am writing on Junga is… it is something I can never forget...…. how about living a life where your day starts with your favorite espresso and a long morning walk in the hills.. Followed by a work you love to do... which was study of culture of that place and interacting with people.. Playing cricket or any other game in the evening with the localites... and after a tiring day… a peaceful night with your friends… And few things I prefer not to mention here… Aah!! life can’t be better…. Well I don’t think I missed anything there except few people I left here in Delhi… :)
Now when I think of it I really feel it was a dream…. How can life be so good…… and perfect….. or I would rather say… I loved those imperfections as well… whatever it may be I would love to go there at least once again in my life…. Life was different there…. Completely different….. and it was like a dream world for me…. Really AWESOME!!!!! :D

Summer Internship…. Dunno where I gonna land up….

Next move… summer internship… as time is passing I realized exams are just a part of daily life :P..
So nothing to mention about them they are no more ‘something different’ to share… And how can they be when you have to give exams just every next month that’s so of all your 7-8 subjects…
They say when you’ll start working you won’t get time... But I feel when I’ll start with my career I’ll have more time... at least I’ll get weekends off.. No matter even if not regularly... But sometimes at least… here we hardly get a single off… and keep on looking for a single day for ourselves…
Though my summer internship will start in feb’2009 am already excited about it… though till now I don’t even know where I’ll be placed for those 3.5 months... But whatever it may be whenever I think about it I am occupied with mixed feeling of excitement and stress… Excitement because it’ll be my first corporate interaction (for a period of time) and stress because I don’t know where am going to be placed.. Since its first time am going to work in real environment I want it to be good… really good… but let’s see what’s there for me in store… And when am there I’ll make it Good :D ;)
Am looking forward to it enthusiastically… two more months to go… Hope it gonna ROCK!!

….And Finally…..

Ahh… don’t remember from when I wanted to be here…. but finally am here….
Well... Life is changed a lot in just one year and not just life I feel am also changed.. or maybe I can sense it this time because its recent.. When I decided to do MBA I never thought it will be like this… Our dreams are always different from real thing but then the satisfaction inside is enough to keep the spark alive that now achieved was once a ‘Dream’... But whatever people may say about MBA I really feel it’s great…
I feel I always enjoyed life in its best manner… My graduation taught me a lot…. But that was in different way there I only tackled different kinda people around… and came across faces I never seen before.. I enjoyed… I laughed…I cried… I learned…I came across some of the most beautiful days of my life… and some of the worst… but all I now recall is the ‘good old time’….. The time when we used to bunk classes.. The time when we used to go on long walks…. Time when we tried every stupid thing together ;)… those ice candies in first rain of season.… those small and big college functions when we used to dress up like never before :D… those stupid crushes and affairs(of friends)…. The days of studying a night before final exam… long chats… smses… stupid fights and specially my field trips… I just can’t forget a single moment of it……. and sometimes I wish so much to go back into the time……………………………………………………and the most important it taught me to be independent….
Then life took a turn… I never thought I’ll someday a month or two before MBA entrance will think of doing it and will clear it…. And here comes support of my family, strong will, destiny and tinge of smart work… :D.. And am in a different life now... a life away from past.. Away from my place… and away from my friends (in distance)… a life from science to accounts… as we grow we realize past was so beautiful… I used to think science is tough but suddenly I feel I love science though accounts is also not bad and am loving it too(as I don’t have to study it anymore in second semester) :D... In graduation I used to miss my school and now I miss college more than school…. And my present is also cool and I know I’ll miss these days… the different thing am learning here is ‘professionalism’…. The word is not merely a word…. It’s a world... a different world... I just entered into it…. But I know I’ll land up somewhere in right place… ;)
I never thought my Life will ever be so hectic that I’ll even crave for a single off…. But then… am getting used to it… slowly slowly… and loving it…. a new life…. A new beginning……. From casuals to formals… from bunks to classes… and the most important thing ‘professionalism’… and a NEW DREAM for myself… life truly ROCKS!!!
CHEERS!!!!! ;) ;) ;)
