bark bark…

as of yesterday there were some 347 odd dogs on campus (i include female dogs…usually addressed by a more respectful name…b******s)…going ‘barc barc’. however…since we are not your usual kind breed…(cmon..no one would pay 15 lacs to become a dog…) we were going ‘barc-o barc-o’ instead.

life has been hectic this week and seems to be driving more towards the same. we had our first ‘Marketing Decision Making’ class today…and people were waiting for the class as if it was being taught by jennifer lopez or something. well..instead of JLo..we had JRa…aka prof raju…the HOD of the world’s best marketing department (Wharton). and you can see why.

infact this term is Whartonian in nature. we have anjani jain…the vice dean there…guiding us through ‘Decision Models and optimization’ and then JRa of course. no firangs this time though…hence sense of humor takes a backseat.

the elections for the VP-Placom at ISB has drawn more activity from the batch than if Baywatch’s next episode would be shot here. i mean…you have to read the spam flowing around…a typical one reads like this

“since i have paid f****ing 15 lacs to be here…i surely would want to see lord krishna as the VP-placom. however, since that translates into a logistical nightmare, may i request the candidates to provide us with the following information:
– size of the team handled at previous job
– ‘real’ size of the team handled at the previous job
– revenue generated as per your resume
– revenue generated as per company records
– number of clients the last 4 years
– number of clients who werent related to you…in the last 4 years
– how many seconds in a single day…(hint: there are 24 hours in a day)”

so…its been kind of fun the last 2 days…watching 346 guys floating mails around as to what the next VP should bring to the table…and 3 souls not bothering to even read their mails…!

anyways…the soap box happened today. V was good…N was too…though the general feeling is ‘not as much’. M was more like…”baethe baethe bore hue…karna hai kuch kaam…”…more preparation would have done him good…

all the best though to all 3…may the one who answers the last question win…

R is leaving for mumbai tomorrow for some conference…(yah right conference…they have a bloody wine tasting party tomorrow…conference my foot…!)…and then she leaves for Cal next week. she is now handling delhi and cal…for DTL. awesome shit…!

…bark bark..wuff wuff…wag wag…lick lick…
