Yes, yes, I've grown a beard over the summer. I didn't bother shaving a couple of days... got compliments and carried on growing it. So yes, it's my attempt at looking like a Greek pirate, I think! I'm told it makes me look much older but more raffish.

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.

Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.

The boy came closer still and the man called out, "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young boy paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can't return to the sea by themselves," the youth replied. "When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water."

The old man replied, "But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I'm afraid you won't really be able to make much of a difference."

The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, "It made a difference to that one!"

Indian colleges offer placements in India itself, hence that option can't be used. There are various good colleges in abroad which offer placements but can you tell me in which countries would you prefer studying?

I don't mind studying anywhere as long as the college offers good placements.

I have heard that Singapore and Australia are one of the best places to study MBA. Why don't you apply to colleges like NSU, New Castle Business School, and S P Jain School of global management?  All of them offer pretty good placements.

akku kumar @akkuk

Thank you so much! I just went through their websites and the placements offered in these colleges are very lucrative.

A. The wall does not simply divide Israel from a putative Palestinian state on the basis of the 1967 borders.
B. A chilling omission from the road map is the gigantic 'separation wall' now being built in the West Bank by Israel.
C. It is surrounded by trenches, electric wire and moats; there are watchtowers at regular intervals.
D. It actually takes new tracts of Palestinian and, sometimes five or six kilometres at a stretch.
E. Almost a decade after the end of South African apartheid this ghastly racist wall is going up with scarcely a peep from Israel's American allies who are going to pay for most of it.

Quarter Life Crisis


It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.

You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.

Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure.

You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!


What you may not realize is that every one reading this relates to it.

We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Send this to your friends if you feel like ... maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...


We call it the "Quarter-life Crisis".

Courtesy:- The Unknown !!

PS :- I am not the author . I found this brilliant piece 3-4 years ago when i was struggling with my quarter life crisis. I preserved it and read again and again whenever I had any similar kind of situation. I am just publishing it here so that it can reach more and more number of people out there who are struggling with their life..err..quarter life crisis

'Spams' Make My Life Awesome!


So I opened my spam section in Gmail today- Not only did the British Ministry of Finance told me that my pending payment of 25000 British pounds has been released, but they also sent me the attached documents to see which payment they refer to, because apparently I am so rich and happening that I just forgot that this amount is due. I have started wondering what I will buy from such huge amount. Maybe I'll plan a vacation to Britain, given I never even have been there and still people there are generous enough to clear my desperately needed pending payment!

While I struggle to find a good B-school in real, I have been offered admission in the London Business School (along with scholarship) and IIM Calcutta too. Only if I knew that all I need to do to get admission in IIMs is to open up my spam mail, I could have saved so much time, energy and money too. One of the mails said- “Congratulations for securing admission in XIMB”. They also mention my XAT ID to make me feel it's for real. Now that's a mail I have been waiting for ;).

Being a non-technical science graduate (PCM), I never think of even applying for jobs before a Masters degree. But the biggest hope that I have is my spam box- Infosys and Wipro are all ready to pay me 35000/- per month and all I have to do is to send them my CV. However slow the economy may be, for me, they have URGENT openings. I feel pity over all my engineer friends who take so much pain to get a placement in these groups from college. I mean “Open up your spam box dummies!”

It's so much tranquilizing to win laptops, A.C.s and even cars sitting home and surfing internet. It's so much fun to see how awesome my life gets and how important a person I become in just a click.

So I have come to one conclusion- Whenever I feel lonely, doubtful of my capabilities, am out of cash or feeling unlucky, this is what I have to do:

Web-> Gmail-> Spams-> Life becomes awesome once again!

KRITVA - Redefining India

As the saying goes,

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,

All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy."

An MBA life isn't just about live projects and presentations nor is it about parties at night. There is much more to it and there is a need to find the right balance in life. IMI's flagship Cultural Management fest Kritva is something which (like its theme) would be a "redefining" experience.  Kritva is a healthy (and much welcome) break from the hectic life of an MBA. The 2 years of an MBA programme isn't just another course, it's a commando training regime. A regime which would make us polished diamonds and shape us into the global leaders we are destined to become and a breather is always welcome.

http://i.imgur.com/d7jlKPo.jpg

KRTIVA 2014 is the 3 day long Annual Management - Cultural fest held at IMI Delhi.  Kritva is derived from the Sanskrit word which means "to do". Kritva 2014's theme of "Redefining India" was chosen because we feel it is the need of the hour to change perceptions, fight established norms that are a setback to the country, and take India to new heights altogether. Kritva 2014 would also celebrate this change as the nation moves ahead to a brighter tomorrow.  Wheels of change move as India moves towards an era of Economic stability, Growth and prosperity. Managers need to constantly look at the bigger picture; this is not just a fest but rather a platform for change!

This flagship event is organized by the students and has been growing in size and success over the past few years.  Hosting one of India's most participated B school fest in the country requires the application of all the managerial and organizational skills one should expect from any typical MBA graduate.

Kritva has a plethora of events ranging from case discussions to fashion shows, from online quizzes to on campus debates. From hardcore marketing to hardcore LAN gaming, IMI's Krtiva has it all. Case studies right from the companies' desks provide a real life exposure to students to what they would be dealing with after they pass out, A fashion show that has eye popping performances and displays of talent that aptly showcase the myriad of abilities students have, from tackling case studies, to being their trendiest best, from sharing information and knowledge on specializations to participating in management quizzes and what not!

All being said and done, it's the night time when the life of an MBA graduate truly comes to life and Kritva is no exception.  Instead of having late night case discussions and project work going on Flamboyant Fashion shows, VH1 Supersonic Parties and the much awaited Star night was when the campus truly came alive. It might have been 3 cold nights in Delhi, but it surely was 3 unforgettable nights at IMI Delhi.

HAPPY DIWALI

So, we are nearing yet another Diwali but for me every single time it feels special- some more love, some more emotions, some more happiness- and it all got almost doubled this Diwali. IILM Gurgaon made the festive season even more colourful with plenty of lights , diyas which transformed the campus into a lavishly decorated yard. Lights peeping out from every branches, illuminated the campus. The candles contributed to the auspicious period of the year. Each of the four days is separated by different tradition but what remains constant  is celebration of life, goodness and enjoyment. Though we are familiar with the typical Diwali "chronicle" but on each occasion we are eager to hear the story all over again. So, I thought, why not I revise you all the narrative of Diwali.

According to Ramayana, Rama, the prince of Ayodhya was ordered by his father, King Dasharatha, to go away from his country and come back after living in the forest for fourteen years. So Rama went on exile with his devoted wife Sita and faithful brother, Lakshmana. When Ravana, the demon king of Lanka abducted Sita and took her away to his island kingdom of Lanka, Rama fought against and killed Ravana. He rescued Sita and returned to Ayodhya after fourteen years. The people of Ayodhya were very happy to hear of their beloved prince's homecoming. To celebrate Rama's return to Ayodhya, they lit up their houses with earthen lamps (diyas), burst crackers and decorated the entire city in the grandest manner.This is believed to have started the tradition of Diwali. Year after year this homecoming of Lord Rama is commemorated on Diwali with lights, fireworks, bursting of crackers and merriment. The festival gets its name Deepawali, or Diwali, from the rows (avali) of lamps (deepa) that the people of Ayodhya lit to welcome their King.

Diwali is one such day when our mind, body and the universe undergoes a complete harmony and we feel like sharing whatever we have with others. So, this Diwali lets be more generous, more kind, more helpful, more determined. Obviously we will burst crackers, but this Diwali lets think of older men who might be suffering from heart diseases. Try and make a donation to some cause. This Diwali lets distribute clothes, sweets and firecrackers to the street children and spread happiness. Instead of just eating a bit and throwing away the rest, give some away to poor people. Lets celebrate with our family and made them believe they are not alone. Lets find eco friendly crackers and save our Mother nature and our descendants from pollution.

Thus, with a few tiny actions, you will find true peace and happiness this Diwali. After all, you will have lit up more homes than just your own!
