Phew…! Long weekend…great time…loads of word got done…and loads got added…!

Friday was the midterm of Management of Organizations. I regret not having taken my calculator along with me…the numericals were mindblowing. We had to calculate NPVs of decisions…how the option value of mistakes change from profile to profile and how exactly does the Carnegie model help the financials of company. And if that wasn’t enough, there were some 15 questions to be answered in 75 minutes…

Yah right…!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday went totally in Druid Duels II. The marketing club debate. There were 2 topics…India as a brand and what it represents, who are its customers, competitors etc…and what makes Ekta Kapoor and her serials tick? M and I thought about it a lot…researched the net…read text and text…and then finally chose the topic that we feel represents the true essence of every India…something that’s close to everyone’s heart and is currently the most raving topic of discussion. Ekta Kapoor and her serials…!!!!!

Not to mention that 9 out of the 13 teams that made it to the finals also though that ekta Kapoor was worth spending 4 hours of their lives.

We stood 2nd…! Lucky day…M was really impressive…

Saturday night was rocking though. So I sit down at 12 midnight to watch a movie…but before that I put my clothes for a wash. The movies ends at 2.30 and I go to pick up the clothes…anticipating the sweet Tide smell to fill my living room. What I find to my horror is that the machine wasn’t working…it hadn’t bloody moved an inch since I had left it there 2.5 hrs back…! And then the front door of the machine wont open. It just wont. I started calculating the loss…for god sake the jeans itself is worth some 25 bucks…(after depreciation…!)

And so I call the maintenance guys…they come after 20 odd minutes…force open the door…I sigh in relief…then put the clothes in another machine…and then wait for another 1.5 hrs before that damn machine churns out fresh clothes.

I sleep at 5.30 after a battle well fought…!

Got up at 11.40am…yes…that’s exactly 20 mins before the time people call afternoon…!

Met with some people..sat down to study…met with some more…study…dinner…chatting…movie…sleep…Monday morning…!

And this afternoon we get the awesome news. The research paper that U, S and I were working on has got through the top 3 ranks…and we are to attend the inauguration of the Brand India Summit on September 30th in Mumbai for the awards…! Wasssaapppp….!!! :)

I am really happy…these guys worked their bum off for this…and I am just glad that my incidental presence fetched me the shared recognition…

And best of all…R has a conference in Mumbai till the Friday…SO I AM GONNA MEET HER…how cool is that…!

Rocking week…looking ahead…
