life is finance like…!!!

Life has been moving at 100mph lately…and its not even funny at times. With 4 fin courses…the world seems to be one hell of a ride…assignments enough to create 4 PhD reports…and classes enough to put Einstein to sleep…!

And to think that this might be my bread and butter for the next 30 years…woopsieee…!!!!

Saturday was an easy day though…we had a talk by Sanjay Bhattacharya (acclaimed painter) and Shekher kapur (yes…the film maker!). Both of them outstanding personalities in their own right. However I shall have to admit that Sanjay swept me off my feet…with his art…his humility and most of all his straightforwardness towards life.

When asked time and again as to what is his inspiration…he got irritated and went, “arre…kuch nahi hai yaar yeh inspiration vinspiration…!!!”…! to us it might be a flippant remark…for him it might be his truth…who knows.

Shekher kapur was stoned…! I mean literally…! He started with describing his place in the matrix of the universe and went on to explain…or confuse, whichever way…as to how we are mere mediums for decision in this universe to be executed. So when I say that I choose not to drink…is it really a decision that I am making…or is it that the decision has already been made and I am merely re-emphasizing…! And if this reminds you of the matrix trilogy…join the wagon…!

Then we had dandiya night on Saturday. It was awesome fun. Everyone was looking stunning in their traditional outfits. Needless to say the girls too. E was rocking in a saree…or maybe since it was the first time I had really seen her in the outfit. I clicked to my heart’s content…yet…the conversations were funny…

“dude…how many have you clicked…”
“ummm…close to 50 or so…”
“what…50…? I am on my 200th or so…! Dude…what’s up…????”
“dude…I am on a film camera…it will god damn cost me 500 bucks to see my results…!! Now u know what’s up…!!” – that was me…! :)

The organization was pretty amazing…and even though the singers reminded me of Bappi Lahiri singing…”yaaaaaaaddddddd aa raha hai…tera pyaar……”…overall the experience was terrific. Professional quality

Sunday was not expected at all. Here is what happened…

8.00am: got up…daily brushing…shitting…emails…etc…
9.00am: breakfast meeting
10.00am: start with fixed income assignment
11.00am: fixed income assignment
12.00: fixed income assignment
1.00pm: fixed income assignment
2.00pm: fixed income assignment
2.30pm: lunch break
2.45pm: fixed income assignment
..
..
7.30pm: corp fin assignment
..
..
9.30pm: corp fin assignment
9.45pm: dinner
10.00pm: corp fin assignment
..
..

And just so you know…no…I wasn’t paid to do all this…! It was the longest…most tiring…and the most challenging day of my ISB stay here…phew…

The week started ok…classes going on…ELP going good…loads of work regarding Poseidon and Placom…and thankfully I am doing juts good…(though A, K and G will disagree…but what the heck…!)

Life’s good…life’s finance like…! (I have no idea what this means)
