Feels great to be back at GIM after a refreshing and certainly well deserved break. I am a family person; and while it was hard to say goodbye to everyone at home I am eager to spend an enjoyable and fruitful second term with my extended family at GIM.
Marketing is easily the most interesting subject I have encountered. Everything is so real world and so practical. No thought seems irrelevant; if it works for your customer, its worth exploring. Period. Professor Parulekar is an amazing marketing faculty. Its encouraging to find someone with such vast experience and proven credentials yet so receptive to new ideas and a willingness to go beyond mere 'KOTLERisms' . Challenging status quo is a part of life @ GIM and its a privilege to be part of an institution that lets me explore new ideas and embrace change.
Up next is the basanti cup (our intra college cricket tournament). Hope to bowl a few yorkers and bounce a couple of my batchmates.
With Akhtar out Carvalho can move to fast bowling!!!
The weather in Goa is simply surreal. Its raining 24X7 and the effect the picturesque mandovi has on my spirits cannot be described in words :grin:
The maddening heat of Mumbai is a distant memory.
Thats all for now.
