A reason to start over new

Few wonderful things have happened amidst of summers.

1.Spicmacay concert - We got violinist duo Ganesh & Kumaresh to perform in IIMB on 26th. It was a short but beautiful concert.

2.Music room got set up - We had a budget of 3L! We have got Tama drumkit, Ibanez bass, Kramer (electric) and GB&A (acoustic) guitars, Yamaha keyboard, 3 Stranger amps and a Marshal amp. Plus the music room is acoustically padded on all sides. Yey IIMB! Can't wait for summers to get over (that explains the title)

3.Saw a few TED videos online - all were interesting. From relating probability of heads & tails to length of pieces of DNA strands to making rural cooking smoke free, all give valuable insights.

4.Had read about Aravind Eye Care Services before, but now was the time to write about it. Do read and if you have time, do watch abridged or full documentary - very inspiring indeed.

second term

(credit - Naka , modified to suit local context)

So what does term 2 bring? A colourful marketing text book? A 'god level' finance text book? A heavier load of case studies?

What does term 2 promise? A 3-month marathon of what kind? A summer internship selection process, one too many PPTs, reams of application forms, vault guides, case-books, surprise quizzes, Vista, sleepless L²s, and an indirect rat-race till death with 259 others for a place in the sun- these all and some more.

Rats! I have to begin somewhere to fit myself to companies.

So what does life after IIM bring? Professional nostalgia for the alma mater? 'God level' finances in your bank account?

What does life after IIM promise? Decades long marathon of what kind? A job with huge load of binding responsibilities & expectations, one too many formal PPTs, losing sleep over deadlines and another indirect rat-race with thousands of others for proving the worth of the brands - these and more.

Rats! I have to begin somewhere, to seek the purpose of this life.

Though I keep rationalizing by saying "This too shall pass away", whatever comes next, will also pass away. So will life, universe and everything.....


That is 42.
