Wot to write

Ok, till now, I think I have written things related directly to me.
Now I am thinking to write something totally unconnected to me. I suppose thats what a blog is meant to be. To share and to express what I/we feel about things.

Well, I need sometime then, because I gotto think wot to write. If someone gives me topics to write on, I could probly try doing that, but to think myself and then write abt it is slighta difficult for me.

Anyways, I shall give it a try!

What my birthdate means?

Your Birthdate: June 12
Being born on the 12th day of the month (3 energy) is likely to add a good bit of vitality to your life.
The energy of 3 allows you bounce back rapidly from setbacks, physical or mental.
There is a restlessness in your nature, but you seem to be able to portray an easygoing, sometimes "couldn't care less" attitude.

You have a natural ability to express yourself in public, and you always make a very good impression.
Good with words, you excel in writing, speaking, and possibly singing.
You are energetic and always a good conversationalist.

You have a keen imagination, but you tend to scatter your energies and become involved with too may superficial matters.
Your mind is practical and rational despite this tendency to jump about.
You are affectionate and loving - but very sensitive.
You are subject to rapid ups and downs.

Standing Ovation!

All the TIME (a coaching institute for MBA entrance exam) students who got admits into the IIMs had been invited to TIME Super Achiever's Meet on May 15th in Hyd. It was in Ravindra Bharati and we were invited on the stage to talk about our experiences and to talk something abt TIME and as well motivate the aspirants of CAT this year.

A huge crowd had gathered. The auditorium, quite famous in Hyd, was jam-packed. There were about 1000+ people gathered there to listen to the achievers!! The crowd gave us a standing ovation when all of us had gathered on the stage! Man, it was an amazing as well as an embarassing moment...I dont understand what was the need of a standing ovation by such a huge crowd...All of us (abt 22 of the guys on-stage) had to address the crowd. When it was my turn, I told the crowd what I felt when they gave us the ovation. I mean c'mon yaar, we aint any demi-gods. We are as normal as anyone sitting out there except that we went through the grind and worked hard for about 6-8 months or so because of which we are where we are..thats all, nothing less nothing more..

Ya, what I wanted to say was why do people praise someone so much...I mean praise a guy whose done really something great not a person whose got through an institute...Agreed that the institute is one the top 3 in India but still yaar..praise a guy whose started a company and creating jobs for many others, prasie the person whose working for an NGO, praise the guy whose working tirelessly for the poor and fighting for their rights and upliftment or for that matter, praise the CAT topper and not the others...The problem with our society is that ehry praise someone which gets into the head of the person praised and then the society blames that very person saying that that guy/girl has ego problem and is very proud...Well, who got that pride in that person in the first place? Its the society which does that. Anyways, this is a kind of a cycle out of which there seems to be no escape for anyone..

Decisions in life!

There are some times when we think a lot and then decide and there are times when we decide and then think a lot. Many times after taking a decision, we think if it was a right one! Mind might say one thing and the heart another.
Well, if u think why I am farting away to glory with all this crap, its because I found myself in such a situation recently. As I have talked about my indecisiveness in my previous blogs, today's decision goes on to substantiate it further!

I had paid the fees for IIMB which happens to be 20k in the end of April. Somehow I was never satisfied for having ditched C! I thought and thought over many times if what I did was right. Nothing convinced me that I had taken the right decision. My heart always pulled me towards
C. In the end, I succumbed to my heart's wish. I decided to chuck B and take up C and so promptly send the DD today to IIMC!

Some of the reasons why I chose C over B:
1. I liked the pro-activeness of the C alumni and seniors.
2. C being the oldest IIM in the country enjoyed a much greater alumni base.
3. C has a very strong Fin and Ops faculty.
4. C enjoys a very good industry perception.

The only reason for my having decided B some days back was because of the food, climate and place. But then, at the end of the day, I felt that these were not the right parameters to take a decision. So here I am today chucking my earlier decision and taking a new one!

I hope when I enter the corporate world after my MBA, I dont find myself in such kinds of situations where I take a decision and then feel that it was wrong! But well, since fickle-mindedness runs in my blood, I cant promise anything...

So watch out what my future beholds!!
