MUMBAI, MBA: Prologue

Let me begin this post with a confession. I, like many, am only writing this because I’m happy with my current ROT metric. ROT? Well, Return on Testimonial ratio (for the uninitiated, this is a reference to our yearbook). My world famous in Patna uncle once said, “With great powers, comes greater responsibilities to misuse…

The pre B-School Facebook Group :P

Five more days before I officially join the MBA bandwagon. I’ll be doing what almost 62.4% of all engineering students dream of doing. Out of these, almost 81.45% manage to get a PG degree (one form or the other) while the other 18.55% either wallow in self-doubt, enter a state of maniacal depression hearing stories…

The Audacity of Social Protocols

Of all the things I hate about myself, the inability to carry forward a casual conversation bugs me the most. I have lost count of the number of times I have been in a socially awkward situation because of this. Now, I am not talking about special occasions (like family functions) where you have to…

Patna to Delhi

This is one of the rarest of times. I am travelling alone. Usually, I have company that protects me from the boredom that the Great Indian Railways bestows upon you. You can imagine the extent of my boredom by the fact that I am attempting a blog entry using my phone. I don’t even know if…
