HI FRIENDS, i donot know whether my post here among big B school talks shall be welcomed or not. but i thought to share it with all as somewere -someone like me shall be trying hard to get the value of life.

now i am 29 yr old, had a long journey of 7 yrs in corporate world...as sr executive. yrs ago when i compleated my graduation i joined a small b school for MBA concept of IIM was there in my mind and heart but was not that fortunate to have my parents on my side as they are from science side and wanted me to be in same line...but i adamentaly listened to my inner voice...and joined a b school.....some how destiny had someting else in store for me , my father strictly denied to pay my fee for no good reason as i just cleared my 1st yr exams..........so had to discontinue my mba in mid way as i had compromise on financial grounds........the idea of loan taking was not there for me ...one i was not aware...two i had to be on job any how.......i left my home ....and joined a small company as an sales executive........................7 yrs of pain ...and burning desire though may not be expressable and important for all but had a driving force for me...and i joined PT institute when i was posted in Nasik .....and started preparing for CAT.......compromised a lot with my job....financial grounds.....every thing.....
i left my job and came back to delhi and joined IMS .....and devoted fully myself for CAT preperation ....i had to do so as i was never a good student coz my disputed family.........
then came september 18.....and i fell ill and was hospitalised.....till 12 november.....................................................
saw my dream criplling down on 21 november d day...........
result came....and all may guess how good it would be......................
gave MAT unwillingly..........got call from niilm...iilm...bimtec........the moment i was asked to pay fee.....though was beyond my capacity...i applied for loan.........but got stuck in the mid.........................as it needed my father`s signature,,,obviously answer was no.............................
finally tried to land up in same old b-school from where i was thrown out......was in mid of procedure....but got stuck......(stucking in mid way was becoming my destinie`s habbit)...........i scored 49% in my graduation...........!!!!! so was not adimitted there.....as eligibility criteria was 50% ..........
.......finally joined another b school which i can afford....and eligibility was not an issue..........................NO DESTINY did not favoured me but had more cruel way for me...............it was a DISTANCE learning programme ...which institute disclosed only before issuing enrollment card for exams))))))!!!! (i have though filed a case in conumer court this time and is doing MBA as corrospondence student direct from university)...........
but during all this ordeal.....one word kept me alive ....IIM-A ......my dream my passion..........the word which gave me strength to fight................during my preperation for CAT i used to be so mad with this word that one day my way back from mumbai...i happend to land IIM-A ......roamed there for 2 hrs touched every wall....sat and was lost there.......came out only to promise to come back...............people say why IIM-A only just cant say why.......may be i am sync but i am happy............
in my 1st sem of my resent MBA i desided my path................if not as student ....i have to make my path for a good faculty....and one day shall be in IIM-A as faculty.......
pagalguy was always a good friend for me.....espesially this section.....life @ iim is my favourate....to enable me to dream to be in iim.......and behave like that..........
i started working for it...then came the day my friend brought me economic times and showed me about MDP programmes @ iim-a ...i checked in site ...fee was too high for me......BUT wait i saw about a conference............sixeth asia pesefic ABC conference.......it was about communication and gender........i desided to just attend it.........as date to submit abstract was over ............
but one night i mail prof Asha Kaul......on 2nd day after mail i was thrilled to get responce .......that i was asked to submit my abstract!!!!!!
To write a paper was an alien for me .................even my prof and friends mocked at me.....................but another group of friends ( all doctors doing MD , as i live in campus of a medical college) they supported me......and helped me every step to make the paper...do research ...analyse data....every thing ..........days and night i workrd .....my enthusiasm was on peak as was the matter of IIM-A .i had to go there I PROMIsED........
THERE came my destiny.........started getting my eye muscle problem............was operated in one eye..............AND THERE I WAS STUCK FOR ANOTHER
WEEKS .....................
but this time i desided to fight back........IIM-A had called me.........
sat on system again one eye closed .......worked ....worked.............worked......got final print out on the very day i was to boared my train to Ahemdabad..................
donot know what happend to me there when i landed iim -a ..............nothing.........!!! as if shocked......only to wake up in front of mike and all eminent faculty members ...prof Dholakia....dr Himanshu.....dr Desai......prof Asha............telling my experince to make paper ......and came applause ...and few blessings....

Dear ravi goyal444,

With 1 post in bold, and param_rocks with 2, testifying as the only witness, doesn't make the story any more convincing. It's damn easy to come up with a new username and even more easier to dole out a story. But, asked to testify, and it all goes rolling.

Don't try to mislead puys with hypothetical stories. It is not at all convincing that a person who has published 8 papers will write such a unprofessional writeup. Many here on the forums without such an acclaim can write much better. 😐

Everyone is allowed to post their experiences and stories provided they have enough material and resources to support their story 'if' there is any question against it *or* the authenticity of the story is questioned.



And ya paper publications have copyright funda and is needed cash to excess


excess

i dont think that there is any restriction on *viewing* published papers.
copyright is used to protect it from illegal copying/reproduction/use without taking the permission from the concerned person/company

so [email protected]
- do come more with your experienses-

let the 'Bond' do the talking 😉 we would like to here his take on the questions raised

No hard feelings anyone plz...


Ditto

To Mr M Singhania No Hard Feelings And Offenses But You Have Groaned At Everyone Appreciating Decent Effort Of Mr [email protected] ,i Wont Mind Being Groaned ,but Do Please Give Reasons For Groaning,again No Offenses Meant.

Dont worry too much about Singhania,

He is a strange creature. Cynic to the core. I too am but there is a limit to everything.

He must have groaned because he is thinking the guy is making up the story. When Mr. Bond will give links to his papers, he will think that IIM Profs might be relatives of that particular person. Even when the sid guy proves it that the Profs were not his relatives, Mr. Singhania will think that Bond Beta sach bata, You got ur paper written by you close friend naa.

But what surprises me is the attitude of the Mods here. Go and look at what kind of exaggerated nonsense is spread all over like All I wanna speak about.. Ask the writers there to provide proofs of there appearance in 3 successive CATs. Ask the B-School Admits abroad to provide proofs of their H/S/W admits.

Its an online forum and do not needlessly take potshots at someone, unless you are reasonably sure that he is just fooling around.

Do u think seriously, that he will make up the whole story just to publish it here as if it will give him some pleasant break. And what do u expect from a first time poster. Proper formatting. Or a lot of contemplation before writing here where everyone else is writing non-grammatical 2-3 line nonsense.

It is clear he wrote it in haste.

This may not be the right thread to raise this issue, but I have long felt on similar lines.. It cant be logistically feasible to cross-check credentials of anybody n everybody, but wot is perfectly easily possible is to take claims/past or current exploits/educational or work-ex profiles etc. with a pinch of salt.. believe at ur own risk types.. let me reiterate, this has no direct or rhetorical reference specifically to bonddonraj bhai..
I mean, at the end of it all, its one's own life one has to ponder abt.. however inspiring or awe-inspiring others' exploits/daredevilry/profile is, it wont hav any bearing on anybody else's status of things..
On the other hand, another viewpoint is tht even fiction/tall tales can be inspiring.. come on ppl, dont we all sometimes relate with the main protagonist of a movie? :)

Hi ,

I appreciate your views ... Its nice to see people encouraging new members and all .. I was witness to one of the many conversations of yours on SB .. where along with anandv and others , you guys were discussing that in the all i wanna say thread .. the people who really struggled ....they find mention and end up as heroes .. to an extent I agree with you there ...

But isnt it good a feeling to see someone really work hard for it and attain his goal .. doesnt it affirm one's belief that if one works hard .. one does get it ... there are many who would have been going through a rough patch like those who posted their struggle on that thread ... now tell me who will be an inspiration for that guy who is struggling now .. the guy who was a 100%iler all through .. or someone who struggled really badly ... but ended up in abc ....

I read through bonds post ... dint comprehend much in the first go .. had to re read it ...

kool . anupam .. these guys had chicken pox before cat ... they are in I and B respectively .. ppl have gone through a lot to get what they deserved .. look at our very own prem .. having known that guy . I know how much he has gone through .. wouldnt it make a wonderful post on what I wanna say thread .. when he posts his experence on his way to IIM A ..

I have nothing against bond nor do I dispute him ..... and reachmonils view isnt really that unjustified ... he has been here at pg for a long time .. and maybe has got a instinct for such cases .. he might be wrong ... but there is nothing wrong in asking for his papers .. or other references ...

Maybe this guy was in a hurry to write , but had it been you subodh .. wouldnt you have taken time out and written it giving a lot of thought ...unless you are writing on a mundane topic (like I wrote about my bangaore summer experience nonstop without stopping for 3 pages in the [email protected] thread)

One last point it really takes guts for a man to tell the whole world that he struggled to get where he is ... and if that guts helps someone on the way .. then nothing better ...

I would request bond to share some more info abt the MDP programme and all .. so that others can also benefit.

Hi Shailesh,

I have nothing against people who have written at All I Wanna Say .. Their posts are truly inspiring.. I also know a bit abt struggle having myself taken JEE-2001 while suffering from Chicken Pox.

The point is Guy's post does not contain any exaggeration. Tell me, why will a guy mention that he got kicked out from a B-Grade B-School? He could have straightaway said I am an ex-IIMite or ian.

Second, this post was a refreshing break from all the posts only mentioning CAT as the ultimate goal. This person has clearly showed there is other side to Management and Business than just getting into IIMs or H/S/W and then striving to suck upto Profs to get good grades or trying to get Scholarships.

The quality of writing is inspired by what is written over a place. If he had decided to submit something about him at say an Article Site or some Serious Discussion Forum, he might have tried to write a good post.

But here, as it was a forum, he might have just written it in conversational style taking hints from most of the posts here.. (Obvious by the number of dots). Mebbe reachmonil had intuition - But then the same can be said about MSinghania who asked from Cherry whether he got into IIML through reservation.. One day he will come and claim that I have intuition abt such dropout cases.

It is good to be cynic, but the manner in which reachmonil raised doubts was controversial. He could have PMed him that he is interested in having a look at his papers. Needless to say, everyone takes watever is written in a public forum with a pinch of salt, and Mods do not need to lecture people on this. Everyone here is sufficiently intelligent enuf to understand that.

I totally agree :)

Cant say much about him ,the only thing I know about him was that he had raised some issues about ragging at joka

Hmm interesting ... maybe bond had gone offline .. yes I agree with u .. maybe bond went offline .. and before ppl started pouring in with accolades .. he wanted to put in some sort of disclaimer ... but he went by his judgement .. and we are free to debate about it ... I personally might have PMed bond .. but maybe reachmonil had some reasons to post their .. which I am unaware of ...

yes.. definitely agree with the refreshing thing point .. hope more of us who are silent about their struggles and achievements will post ...:thumbsup:

FRIENDS AFTER ALL THIS I WOULD JUST SAY ....SOMETIMES EMOTIONS KNOW NO LANGUAGE.........

Dear Rahul Goswamia aka [email protected],

I am sorry about the skepticism for I wanted to the confirm the case before you have a fan-following here and it turns out to be a hoax. Hope you understand it was selfless sincere attempt.

It is a pleasure to have you on the forums. Hope to see more of you. I am sure one day you will live upto your dream of walking the hallowed portals of IIMA!

Thanks dear friend, I understand your responsibility of maintaining good standard of the forum, I shall always try my best to share my experiences to all my friends here. 29 yrs of struggle has taught me a lot and I want it to be shared to all, it gives me and others a positive strength. Staying away from family...... for more than 9 yrs have made me realize the importance of friends, for its because of them I am here and dare to walk ahead...................
.................................keep moving..............

Hope everyone's doubts are quashed now..

@bonddonraj,

Kudos for extraordinary feat.. You are much above regular IIM admits (incl. me) and having already walked the hallowed portals of A, you do not need to walk them again..

Prof. Asha Kaul is one of the interviewer in a Panel at Delhi. A very elegant Prof. and well-spoken indeed, though she screwed my case..

Infact she was my panelist also .... She asked me all qns related to the form .... I did answer them well ... By the time her qns were over , I was pretty confident .... But yeah .... never mind the result , the interview was enjoyable ..
