the beginning of the BEGINNING

what do i say now,after months of anticipation finally i know that i am heading somewhere after my engg.i will be an engineer in this June(which i had been waiting for so long).and i am about to start a new journey into the world of management.
i have got admission in an MBA college.i am very much excited.the name of the college is Indian business academy ,it is in greater noida.
after so much of anxiety where i had nothing in my hand after rejections from so many colleges ,IBA turned out to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
though this college is not even comparable to those revered IIMs but i am happy because i got what i deserved.had i worked more harder or had i been more smarter i know i could have had better options in my hand but there were still bleak chances considering my below par academics..

anyway,people make mistakes and i am no different,but the good thing is i have learnt from my mistakes and IBA has come to me as yet another opportunity to prove myself(though this shall be last) and i will leave no stone unturned to prove myself.
i was waiting for this thing to happen with me,i have heard people saying that its worthless doing MBA from a non-reputed coll,but let me tell you iba is not a bad option after considering i had no has a sprawling campus,well equipped labs with all facilities,low fee,decent placements with all big names visiting them.
i am not saying that coll does not matter,it does but to a very large extent it depends on MBA has so much things to offer in terms of learning experience ,it depends how much you absorb it.
you may call it an 'average guy's philosophy but i believe that i can make it to the most.not everybody is from the top 20s and more or less it is up to us how much we can gain and utilize the resource.
my engg course is ending on 1st week of June and the MBA is starting from 1st i have 20 days to relax.i have several plans for utilizing my 20 days in the best way i can,but lets see how things materializes.i have planned to go for 10 day Vipassana course as i feel that this is the best time i can do it,because later i know that time will be luxury for me.i want to spend some time with my family before i join iba.
though i am not much regular with posting blogs but i hope that i will be blogging regular once i joing iba,and hope my writing skills too improve.
really looking forward to start a new page of my life.all the best to me!!!

iipm interview 11

so finally i gave the gdpi for iipm.but by far this was my worst experience,not in terms of my performance but the way the whole process was handled.i saw the highest state of mismanagement in iipm today but what is their fault,you can expect the same level of professionalism from these people who are so dumb and the people who get admitted here because they don't get admission anywhere.

i had some good prejudices about this college and i had never thought that i will meet such dumb and idiot interviewees in my life.

we were called at 12.15pm to be precise.and in the call letter it was explicitly mentioned that we have to wear formals(never thought people need to be reminded),though i know that that has been added due to their past experiences. anyway we waited till 1 with nobody to brief us about the whole process.finally a guy in his early 20's came and told us that we have to assemble in another room and give an aptitude test.test was easy with a compulsory essay.

after giving the test we were made to sit in a conference room where we waited for another 1.5hrs ,again with nobody to ask why we are being made to wait for so long..finally we got hold of a guy and he somehow managed to take some time off from his 'busy' work and took our GD.Gd was good from my side,i gave some worthwhile inputs and steered the conversation effectively.
then again we waited for say 2 hrs,to go for a 2Min's interview where the panel was interested in nothing i know.
overall it changed my outlook towards iipm and made my decision stronger than i will join iipm in my worst case and that too with delhi(heard its better than others).but world looks so different when you think that you might have to study with these people who are disillusioned,complacent,pessimistic,short sighted and lack a just attitude..i fear i wont change for bad..I'd rather work somewhere,gain experience,prepare again for next year and get a slight better coll than to join me guys,iipm will give you only an mba degree and i doubt it will help you as a person.

god give me some good option,at this juncture i am quite worried about my future,my biggest concern is the kind of colleagues i will get.

but i trust myself and i know that no matter what options i have i will take the best out of it.i have lived some wonderful part of my life with leisure,so now is time for some struggling times..just pick only whats good,throw away the seeds..that's how people move up.

IIPM interview!!

i have observed that my mind is most creative at night around one.most often i get some plans like watching movies,writing a blog,goggling out for some info like operation bluestar,so what do other people generally do at this juncture.i know that there are hardly very few people who sleep in engg so early..
anyway,today at 12 noon i have to go for IIPM interview.frankly saying,i am least bothered about the interview,to me giving interview for IIPM is nothing more than going for a call centre interview,of which i have forgotten count by now how many times i have given it.why is this so,am i not serious or i have already got offers in my pocket!
none of these actually ,i have a feeling that considering so many seats being on offer from iipm,they will take just about anybody and these interviews are just a formality..if you have money to pay the fees ,you will get admission.
but that is different that i honestly like giving interviews and group discussions..they let me speak my mind,which i crave as i am a impulsive debater..i can debate for any good topic.
but hey,does anybody know what is emotional quotient test,never heard of this test ever during my prep days.
i dont even have any formal dress so i think i will have to wear my college uniform only.there is only one thing running in my mind that by all probability they should give me a seat,preferably in delhi.
i know the brand which iiipm has build has itself acted negativily and seriously joining iipm is the last thing in my mind,but considering the fact that till now i have no options so i need to make sure that atleast i must clear this college.
i will give update about my gd tomorrow ,till then lets watch 'The Reader'..heard its good.ciao!!

desparate for joining mba

today is Sunday evening and i am getting pretty bored after my erratic schedule from last two days which allowed me to wake up at 3 in the morning at Sunday.but to some point i don't regret this because i had finished 2 chapters of optic fiber which i had already studied back.
anyway,i just came back home and thought of reading blogs of mba guys.i googled and found some cool blogs by people from HBS,columbia,stanford etc..those blogs moved me so much that i cant tell.these people are so filled with eenrgy,positivity and they are so much keen in knowing about everything around that thats what sepaterted them from the rest of the breed..i always want to know what do they think,what makes them so different..
reading abt those people have made me so restless that i wish now i can join mba as soon as possible,and i could also write about my experiences there.though i know that consideing my background,i will not be able to get a good college but i believe in the philosophy that nobody is born with the best choices with them but they are smart enough to steer the best choices towards them by the course of their ideologies and actions.a course offers you enough oppertunities and experiences and the onus lies on us to gain the maximum from that.i am also pledging that i am going to make the best out of the coming two years ,i know i lack confidence ,but i will change myself very much and i will go to the college with the open mind,not thinking that the average age of class is lesser than me or any other prejudices.
cant wait to start a fresh course of my career..
but now is the time to feast on chicken which i am sure ANNA must have made..i will try to best regular on blogging from hence!!
