29 May

Those were R’s last words when we last talked. I wanted to listen to him…I genuinely did…! And its scary that I haven’t kept the word.

Anyways…won’t even attempt to go into the whys and the wherefores…! Lets look at life lately…

Work has been awesome…! The project is nearing its end…it was a short 4-week strategy project…but then a lot of work. Specifically excel modeling. In the past 3 weeks I have already spent some 5 days coming home at 11.30…12ish…! But then the good part is that the weekends are free. And I do remember the experienced set of consultants back at ISB always telling me so…”work like an ass on weekdays…and then enjoy the weekends”.

Its not stressful…not if you enjoy what you do. And as a consultant…you got to love what you do…and be quick at doing so as well. So…while I knew shit about natural gas…leave alone its status in India…I can now identify each and every natural gas plant in any Indian district…atleast in essence! And I know what simulates its demand…and I know what the scenario shall be 5 years from now…10 years from now…even 25 years from now…!

That’s interesting for me. In just a month…I have met the CEO of one of the world’s most powerful power company…have understood the Indian scenario in and out…and have established a working model that helps the client solve his problem. Just a month…!

On the other front…good news. I am kind of engaged…in the sense…our parents met up and stamped the relationship (finally!)…! So now planning for the big event shall start…which wont be anytime this year though…but probably early next year or so. Lets see…!

Saw the DaVinci Code last night. Wonderfully done…though definitely not as descriptive as the book. But then…that’s always a struggle right…! When you have to shrink 650 odd pages in 2.5 hours…there is bound to be some miss. Overall though…I loved the movie. At some level believe in it too…actually always believed so…even before the book (Read: Chariots of the Gods by Erik Von Daniken)

Quite a few current ISB students have been calling me up regarding how to study for the exams…(HAH!) and about ELPs. Just incase someone needs free advice…here you go…

Here is my general take on good grades…!

1. Stay awake in class. that’s half the battle won. and believe me…its not an easy task. if u concentrate all 2 hrs…u need to catch up that much less.
2. Do your assignments and cases seriously. think beyond the obvious. mostly for cases. when u read a case…take your time and think about what you want to share with the class…your perspective. that will give u practice for the final exams.
3. Ask the profs for a sample exam. Insist on it. Will always help.
4. Get comfy with numbers. ISB is largely quant driven…so this will help
5. Pray..!

Till next time…and promise it to be soon…
