Blaze Logs off...

The day when the whole Blaze blazed is unfortunately the day when it logs off .Blaze ,Whizkid, Moi Apparels,Rasclicious, AYS , Doer & Helpers ..all showed their ingeniousness  ...all of them fought till the last bell and eventually all won .. yeah you may question that the panelists  dismissed some of them .. But my reply is all of the above knew that how good or how bad they are .. how viable they are ..still they stick to them and fought like a hero .. So thanks to all of the above for making such wonderful presentations ..

Coming to the my world Blaze Inc .. I can just say that I had started falling on love with Blaze ... I have shouted on them .. I have got frustrated by them and they might be hating me like hell ..but a small part of me told hey ..Blaze is all of Ours .. But suddenly the presentations of all the team were over and I realized Blaze is logging Off .. But will this be permanent shut down or the Blaze will be able to rekindle some sort of fire inside me to make another avatar of Blaze Inc ... Only the time knows ...

Let me be frank ..though I have participated in a GD about Managers vs Leaders , I had never thought seriously about being one enterprenur ..I can say a 1% of my felt that I want to be like that . But then I met this Guy Dr John aka MMORPG aka team-member of Steve Jobs in Newton ..aka man for whom a product life cycle is just 4 years .. 
               He has made my 1% to reach 20% in one stroke only ...how can a man live through such changes ..how can a man forgive and forget a part close to his heart ... I sit back and imagine and this seems quite fascinating for me .. So I do take a pledge to make  this 20% becomes 100% one day ....

Following the herd ..

The easiest way to live the life is to follow the herd .Do whatever anyone is doing ..nod what other person is saying .. and think like what other mind is doing ..Ohh .. have I forgotten , God has given each one of us a thinking brain distinct from each other ..Then why do we follow the herd ...
                  Is it the fear of being alone ..is it the fear of being criticized for something you are not aware ? Yes the solitary life is too much a horror ....Listening to caustic comments is life threatening and withstanding the cumulative force of  a herd is a task larger than life ...So what to do ... lets go and join the mass ...
                 But somewhere a soft voice in me says ... No ..Don't Follow them ..They all are in the matrix ...they all are virtually blind ...and they need someone to be their Neo ... they want someone to open their eyes ..they want someone to make them believe that man is the golden creature of the almighty and it cann't be the rusting iron ..
               Though this little voice says too much a sentence but what I can take from that is what RabindraNath Tagore said "Akela Chalo re" ...Walk Alone ...I believe if the power of truth and wisdom will be with me then I will find on the way many others who are walking alone for the benefit of all ...And then we all can walk together ..not follow the herd ..

Life @ IMT (essay written in the BC class)

This is the essay I have written in the BC class . I thought to preserve this piece of paper and hence just copying everything from that .It has just one month experience and a life long expectation hidden in it .

                  Life at IMT for me is the life that I left 5 years back .This is the life that I longed for when I was at my office desk .Though the culture has changed for me from swiping my attendance card to answering the roll call , I have started enjoying .
                It is often said that you miss the dearest part of you , only when you are far from it .Somewhere I started missing myself during my career .But I believe I am the fortunate one to come back live once more with myself.
                 Though after the IMT , I will be back to corporate , but I will have this time a more wide vision , a more wide horizon to look into .This time I will be equipped with something extra to control myself.
                 When I will go back , I will not spend so much on my weekends on trips to mall as already I have started to cut-down my expenses , so as to have a lesser impact of my joblessness . So this time I can plan for the recession very well .
                In terms of campus life , in a short 1 month , IMT has been generous enough to give myself lots of energetic friends and professors . Though the food at IMT canteen can be of debatable standard , but I have seen much more bad food at office canteen even paying much more price .
               So in the end I can just say that life @ IMT is going to be a milestone in my career and I am sure after twenty years down the line , when I will look down these years , I will definitely feel proud and happy .

I am going through the site http://ddnational.blogspot.com/ and do u know what ? Through these ads/clips I can see the change that has occurred  in our lives ..in all of the indian lives .. seeing those ads just gives me the time through which we as a country have seen through . be it mille sur mera tumhara or purab se suraj ugga ..all those slogans have just come and changed us .. when we were fighting for our integrity , when we were fighting for literacy ..when we were fighting for our basic needs ..it is the india in us has come out ..and we have passed all our hurdles in the past .. and on the eve of Independence day I sincerely believe we will continue to do so .. we may be only 63 years old by the media ..but we have been here since last 5000 years ..and will be there for at least a 5000 years more .

Jai Hind .. Buland bharat ki buland tasveer ....humara aaj ..humara kal .humara Indian DNA ...

The subject I am liking most ..

Which subject do I like most ? Is it ITDM ... I have come from IT background so I can talk global about it for hours ...  Is it Business Communication ? Is it Accounting as I was one of the key resource in accounting module before coming here ?Is it Marketing ? ... I love this as I am going to be associated for rest of my professional life ? .. Is it Managerial Economics ...because I love to think about that .. No I do like all of them above .. But I am starting to real love organisational behavior .. as it is about myself .. it is about how to be in control of my fate ..it is about how to win my own battle ... alll will follow once I am in complete control of myself .. the OB analysis might say that I am not born to be manager ..but it also says there is exception and the dissonance can be reduced If I know to stroke myself .. So till now OB is the front seat ..

Side Effects of pursuing PGDM in marketing

So I am pursuing PGDM in marketing and the first meeting with marketing came in the marketing management -1 class . The god of the marketing book by Philip Kotler . The book is full of jargons , and examples only and to the best of it not a single question will come from the book in mid-term and end-term . But the book itself is quite enjoyable and only holding the same you feel the way it has been written to perfectly market itself . So you read once the book and then get an insight of the same .
Yeah , I forgot about the side effects of PGDM . After 6 weeks of marketing classes and listening to all the cases of different companies , one thing has changed . I have been looking at different ads in a view slight different way . I am trying to find out the relationship between the add and the company and the value proposition it's trying to make . I am reading economic times and the brand equity page has become somewhat favorite . Took part in the mark-roadies and did one thing : though we couldn't go to the second round , was able to put my team's picture on the markup site . So you see perfect marketing .....

So 45 days gone ..

So 45 days have gone .. I mean 1 mid term is over and hardly another 6 week will wrap up the 1st trimester ...then 5 more will remain ... what has been the learning for me ? Is it the regression analysis or the time series prediction ?

yeah if 45 days is going to be the sample of the 6 trimester population then .. i can say the t-test result will definitely predict correctly . Do I sound MBAlike ? Yeah .. then in layman's term what I can say is that I am enjoying this and definitely I can say that the decision seems right . To progress in life you need to learn something and unlearn something and I believe that till this time this process is right on track . When you start working and continue working for almost 5 years , you develop some black-spots on your soul and this learning is going to unlearn those black spots . So a good beginning and with lots of hope , lets get into play ..
