back to b-school

no it wasn't an attempt to get another mba, rather just an alumni meet at the alma mater. so those of you who have been wondering why i haven't been posting as regularly, theres your answer. it was such an awesome fun experience it took me a few days to get over the trip.

everyone assembled there had such a blast. its difficult explaining to people that a crowd of bankers getting together at their old school could turn into a rocking party.

walking around in the familiar surroundings, meeting faculty and staff, seniors from the industry, batchmates and of course the juniors who are still at campus, all in all a terrific holiday. it turned out into a much needed break for all of us who turned up at campus.

visiting my old room and meeting the guy who stays there now brought back old memories. went through much agony and tension while i was there, trying to cram for exams perpetually while working on assignments with impossible deadlines. am i not glad to have that part of my life behind me? thankfully, looking back now, it was all worth it.

the icing on the cake was that the present batch is much better than the last one that graduated (that would be mine), it makes one feel good about the fact that the future is better for the institute and there are worthy successors.

at the cost of sounding repetitive, i say again that it was great to revisit the site of my greatest victories.

business school life rocks!!!

site of one's greatest victories is the correct way to describe b-school. getting in to a good one, managing to graduate and getting a good job at placement week are only some of the famous battles. many more skirmishes go in to making a holistic campus experience.
