Yet another week into life…! And the same regret…repeating itself…
Sorry for not writing in that often…really apologize…!

The last week was a killer…and I had one of the most awesome time of my life. We (A, P, P and I) were working on our masterplan business plan. And man…was it amazing…or WAS IT AMAZING…? All of us will be extremely disappointed not to be through the next round…but then we do realize that the competition is awesomely tough…

P was the CEO of the company…formulating the strategies…and marketing plan…down to the district level.

P was the CIO…structuring the resources into an optimal plan…and working on the allocating of HR, IT and Financials across all spectrum.

A rocked as the CFO…he made probably the most comprehensive financials ever created…so much so that only 1 number fed into the excel sheet would generate the balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement for 10 years…! And trust me…these are not those loose statements…they are as detailed as probably an Infosys.

I, as the COO…(ahem ahem…cough cough…aaaaaaahhhhhhh…chokeeeeee…aaaaaahhhhhh…. dead…!), was basically working with the numbers (except financials). So there was the marketing numbers, and general operational supervision! :)

All in all…it was humbling…it was learning at its best (I know 19089892 times more about microfin than I ever did…!)…it was team work at its best. Truly awesome…

Have submitted the plan…waiting for the next stage results scheduled for the 15th. Will keep you posted…

Apart from that…today we had DB come down for this batch’s first placement. Yet another awesome experience. There were the financials gods of the world…who handle some Euro 5 billion amoungst the 8 of them…and yet so humble…so awe-inspiring…! My interviews went well…let’s see what happens.


Am a very satisfied person today…! thanks god…

And and and…happy birthday to banno. May she get everything she ever wished for…and much more…

a comment like this…is flattering…and scary. there is so much that people expect..and then you feel whether you have it in you to deliver.

i am glad you feel i am worth it. just keep praying…

and trust me…i shall remain the same..! :)
