Rishi, you might want to look at the exact language he used. He added "what bout the rest? crazy stuff" He wasnt just asking a 'simple' question in my view and was trying to put up a rhetorical comment saying the system is flawed!

I would have given the same response or maybe even harsher.. Please observe properly and give your informed suggestions reasonably.

I really don't intend to get into an argument here as this thread is meant for something else.So i won't be posting on this thread after this.

See when he said crazy,he was not being personal.Right?I mean he might/might not have insinuated something shady about the report but that still doesn't justify getting personal and doubting some one's intelligence.

I have read the report(the one meant for papers) and the query he had was very justified as any man might wonder why the remaining guys who have been placed have not been included while arriving at that 15.xx figure?

Whatever might be the reason for publishing the figures only for the top 250,asking pointed and pertinent questions is a sign of intelligence,not the lack of it.

I reiterate,there was nothing so offensive about his post that rohit had to get personal.That is not keeping in line with the spirit of PG.

I did not expect a statement of this sort from a PR committee member of an esteemed institute like IIM-I,is all i have to say.

Dude,the guy asked you a pretty straightforward question.I don't know how you linked that to him applying his mind/cribbing?

The guy in question is one of the sharpest minds i know on the forum and is in full possession of his mental faculties .In fact, only someone who does apply his/her mind would ask that question in the first place.Try and react reasonably.

Some things which people perceive as crazy actually makes sense when you start to apply your mind and stop cribbing about everything.

I never thought Ill be wriitng my exp here but after a convert, will be obliged if this can boost a future aspirant's confidence, as many similar posts of my peers and seniors did to me.

going straight to the process:

1. write a summary..3-4 short paras given, write a summary in apprx 300 words. I peeped into my neighbour's sheet, she started st. away, I had read somwhr and hence thought no -ve in adding a heading, which I did
2. A topic given, write an essay in approx 250 words

Now the pi...the worst

I was the 1st one to be called, was lost in the newspaper, suddenly jerked, stood up, dropped the bag outside the room -> entered

2 oldies , 1 aunty , my most blanked out self

M: tried stacks/LList..struggled
O2: Ok..wt about such a concept in C
M: No idea sir, dont remember the concepts
O2: ok, why is there such a long queue in hospitals
M: coz of the bad service, takes long time, various forms , inefficient process..took the eg. of AIIMS whr there arent enough beds, time for operation takes months, ppl left outside hospital
O2: cut in b/w..ok
A: so since ur developing such a sophisticated product , apart from the hospital registrations, how can a doc communicate a treatment to his patients
M: like i said, via email which we are developing for our product
A: ok, and...
M: via SMS
A: and..
M: web cameras, internet
A: ok..i need how can a doc give a treatment to a paitent w/o talking
M:...expert systems
A: thats ok...but that is robotic and predesigned for some specific diseases..wt else
M: ...BLANK.....
A & O2:see we are giving u many hints

Oh common, now you are a police or quality checker telling how the PR stuffs shoudl be handled at B-schools ?? :sneaky:

Well, tell you frankly, this thread is for narrating IIMI gdpi experiences and an interface between prospective applicants and seniors. Since, you don't belong to any of the parties mentioned above , what are you doing here ?


You coould have pm'ed Rohit or anurag about your doubts and then could have used these words in your personal meesage. Telling how to do the job in this thread doesn't seem to serve the purpose of the thread.

Sincerely

An IIM-I guy.

I am not a police but when I am looking to help someone I expect to give verified information, especially when someone might be basing her life changing decision upon my advice.

Just read the posts and then say what I was doing here. As already mentioned by the hardworking Rohit and Anurag, that only IIMI students have the mental capacity to read and understand. So, I hope you can read and understand.

I am not sure why you guys are so defensive, when someone asks about placements? But then again why would you tell me, you are not paid to tell me. PR guys only talk to the media as maintained by your friend.
