Yesterday was all talks and talks and talks. However had a great time with G as well…gone to buy V’s gift. He was evidently pretty happy with the gift…had that sheepish smile with the volcanic excitement contained within…

The BCG folks had come down to address the class of 2006 on ‘careers in consulting’. Pretty impressive talk. For one…they didn’t pitch for BCG at any point of time…and two…the perspective was really honest.
“consulting is not the answer to everything…”
“we do fail at times…”
“we know we are not mckinsey…but we are great in our own right…”

This weekend is screwy by all standards. 3 submissions are due…and then one due on the 25th…and then the LDP assignment due on the 1st of September. We are required to watch the movie ‘basic instinct’ and talk about leadership with respect to the same…(YAH RIGHT…!!)…no…we are required to watch ‘a’ movie called Amadeus…(on the life of Mozart) and connect our understanding of leadership from the class to the movie. Seems to be pretty boring a task…I mean…of hand I cant think of anyone whom Mozart led…except himself. However, I have full faith that he did something more than just compose…we will discover…

This term (and what I am going to say has been repeated by approximately 99.98783% of the student as well) is somehow going too easy. When the fact of matter is…its not. Cmon…corp fin is not easy…little’s law in OM is no reflection of how ‘not so little’ is the course and its content…(I cant say the same about the prof though…!!!)…I am sure no one knows what the heck is MADM all about…and entrepreneurship will have a case as the final…which will require a lot of thought…

So basically…the situation is…lots of tough courses…the desire to study at the lowest level possible…and the tension of this combination not creeping in…! phew…! I can so totally see my grades this term…(which I am sure I will not get to see before my 2nd  kid celebrates his silver anniversary…)

Anyways…ummeed pe duniya kayam hai…aur main bhi…!
