From Failures in 2006-09 to converting IIM-C in 2010 – My Story (Part 3/3)

I knew A and C would not work out. Had still done a night out hoping for a miracle.
A came and as expected it was a ding. I absolutely was in awe of A and despite having XL and FMS and knowing I had messed up my interview, I wished I could get a convert.

Then came C. I thought of not even looking at the result as I had been kicked out of interview room unceremoniously.

And it was a straight convert for both PGDM and PGDCM :drinking:

It was a miracle happening right infront of me. Now in retrospect, I realized it was a really big stress interview and I maintained my calm at all point in time.

Finally Joka dream came true for me. It’s like a big bollywood movie- things get screwed up and then comes the happy ending.
I would like to thank my parents- for being with me at every point in times- even at times when they had no clue about why i’m doing what i’m doing in life.
I would like to thank prem_ravi, R@J,harshadk, neha.visionary, naga,marijuana and many others for their constant motivation and help.
I would like to thank DT-10,SBT,BDT,BBBT for giving a place to hopeless loser like me in the team. DT-10(doc,bmr and everyone) deserves a special mention for it’s awesome members- all 10 of them.
I would like to thank my gang in bangalore- rsriram84, shabadp, yogsconnect, apatchofsnow and cat_demon and all the puys in b’lore- kinji,mechie,PP, khatana and everyone with whom I had a great time here.
I would like to thank PG for giving me a great platform to connect to all this wonderful people and the whole PG fraternity .
I would like to thank SuX,snits,VV ,afc and utsi. SuX and Snits- you had more belief in me than maybe I had on myself \_____________0/

Edit: I think some of the last lines got deleted…don;t know why..so updating them again->

Thanks to birbal bhai and prem bhai for all their motivation
(Sorry if I missed out somebody’s name. )
(Lots of thanks eh? But then the fight has been little long too)

And finally thanks to the special person in my life..without her it would not have been possible.

Also, I have talked to her parents and they’ve no issues….so it’s all settled 😃

It’s like a big bollywood movie where things get really nasty in interval and then comes the good old “Happy Ending”.

Final result-
Converts- IIM C,L, FMS,IIFT-k
W/L- IIM-I (WL-51),XL (BM WL-29), NITIE(WL-89) (All 3 finally converted)

Finally joining Joka

Edit (Dec ’14): I get this question asked lot of times in PM..so thought of updating it here itself:

Yeah I did end up marrying her. How could have I let her go after all this?

😃
